Why do people rape?

Started this Krishna conscious discussion. Last reply by Bhaktin Maral Aug 26, 2013. 2 Replies

The increase of rape cases in India has shaken the conscience of every right thinking Indians. People were outraged when in December 2012, a girl was gang raped and killed in Delhi. Again the same…Continue

Don’t wait for old age. Let us give up the insatiable material desires now.

An old man in State Bank of India was inquiring about car loan. The agent asked, “For whom you want the car?” “It’s for me”, the old man said. “And what’s your age sir?”, the agent again asked.  “It’s 76!” I don’t know whether he got the loan or not. Or whether his desire (or need) to buy a car was right or not. But one thought which immediately struck me was that will there be a day in my life when all my desires (of course material) will cease to end.  Will there be a day when I will not want…See More

Why to pray to God only for worldly things?

A friend of mine has a beautiful daughter who is very young. By her innocent antics, she entertains all. Once she went in front of the picture of Radha and Krishna and reverentially folded her hands in front of the Lord. She stood there for few minutes. All of us were pleasantly amused, her mother was very excited. She embraced the little child and then said something which was although not shocking but saddening. Taking the little girl on the lap, she instructed her in a serious tone, “Always…See More

Burn the seed of lust

A seed is tiny in size but if watered regularly it grows into a gigantic tree. Similarly, any desire in our mind initially may appear to be extremely small however if we keep on nurturing that tiny little desire then slowly it becomes extremely big.  And that specific desire or thought starts affecting our daily life. How it happens? Suppose that we see an obscene picture in a newspaper or on a billboard (these are anyway plenty available these days), our mind like a blotting paper captures…See More

Vasant Panchami – day to offer our love to Radha and Krishna

 Today is Vasant Panchami, the first day of spring. Spring is considered to be the best of all the seasons. Different varieties of colorful flowers of various shapes and sizes swarm the earth in this season. The multicolored surrounding exudes sweet fragrance calling people to enjoy the beauty of God’s beautiful…See More

Starve the senses to enjoy it

Our senses if untrained and uncontrolled behave like a serpent ever ready to bite us. We mostly suffer because we fail to control our senses but remain controlled by it. For e.g. if one does not control ones speech and is loudmouthed then sooner or later one will face the music. Or else, if a person always remains absorbed in satisfying ones taste buds then from morning to night one will be busy looking for palatable foodstuffs.  The problem is that the more we walk the extra mile to act as per…See More

365 steps towards perfection

Suppose that we invest our hard earned money in a company’s share which promises to give a very high return at the end of the year. But we find that throughout the year the market value of the share keeps depreciating and at the end of the year we have lost all our money. Next year the same company again launches a new scheme and asks us to purchase its share. How many of us would ever think of buying the share from the same company again? Probably no one because the company would have lost its…See More

We lament, we fret, we hanker and we regret

The fire of unlimited desires constantly burns our heart. Desires always tease us and like an uncontrolled horse make us wild. Few of the most common desires which everybody nurtures is – desire for amassing wealth, owning a palatial bungalow, driving the most luxurious car, having a beautiful/handsome sexual partner, becoming famous, possessing the latest and the best gadgets and gizmos of this world, remaining always young, looking always attractive, being the cynosure of everyone’s eyes..……See More

Krishna and Christ: Are they same or different?

While being crucified, Jesus cried. But he did not cry for himself, instead he cried for those who were committing the gravest sin. Jesus was continuously praying to God to forgive those who were menacingly torturing and trying to kill him. Jesus, the son of God, had come to this world to spread the message of peace and love and to effect this change he was ready to sacrifice everything. This is the foremost quality of a holy man, for spreading God consciousness he is ready to brook any kinds…See More

Journey Back Home

Neither it can be seen or touched or felt but its existence is undeniable.  Just like the tsunami waves it does not have any emotions, it entraps and swallows all. The high and the mighty, the poor and the meek, men and women, every being of this world has to bow to it and have to surrender to its dictum. The “Time”, the mightiest of all is unstoppable and unconquerable. The might of “time” has always remained unchallenged and will remain so for ever. Time annihilates everything. “Time”…See More

Gita Jayanti – the day when Krishna spoke Gita to Arjuna

Today is the day when Krishna spoke the pristine message of Gita to Arjuna about 5000 years ago.  The setting was unprecedented – Kurushetra was swarmed with millions of mighty warriors of Pandavas and Kauravas who were ready to take the life or give the life. But just before the beginning of the war, Arjuna got completely bewildered. In quagmire he was ready to run away from the battle and live by begging. But Arjuna was fortunate because he had befriended Krishna. He beseeched Krishna to show…See More

Size of the soul

The size of the soul is one ten - thousandth part of the tip of the hair. It means that if we take the tip of the hair and cut it into one ten - thousand parts then that extremely tiny part is the actual size of the soul.Svetasvatara Upanisad (5.9) confirms the size of the soul:balagra – sata – bhagasya satadha kalpitasya ca bhago jivah sa vijneyahsa canantyaya kalpate“When the upper point of a hair is divided into one hundred parts and again each of such parts is further divided into one…See More

Diet for an unhealthy heart

Material Compassion, lamentation, hankering, tears and fear are the shields of an ignorant person to justify the weakness of their heart. Inadequate and improper foods make our body weak and prone to various bodily diseases. Similarly if we do not nourish our heart with a healthy diet then it becomes weak and prone to material diseases. The virus of lust, greed, pride, anger, envy, illusion and false ego easily attacks a diseased heart. Happiness gives way to helplessness and we constantly…See More

Lord Rama was even ready to embrace Ravana

Posted on April 8, 2014 at 8:56am 0 Comments

Lord Rama’s associates weren’t happy to see Vibhishana when he came to seek shelter of Lord Rama. They thought that Vibhishana being the brother of Ravana, an enemy of Lord Rama, cannot be trusted. But to everyone’s utter surprise they found that Lord Rama happily welcomed Vibhishana and he did not even…

Regulate your life to live happily

Posted on April 7, 2014 at 9:30am 0 Comments

Regulation is the key to success. If we aren’t regulated then our life isn’t better than the animals. Whimsical living isn’t appreciated in the scriptures. ‘Regulate’ means to control things with the help of rules. For e.g. traffic signal regulates traffic and when it breaks then there is chaos on the roads. On any product manual the rules are emphatically emphasised, the optimum temperature or pressure on which the product will give the best output is boldly illustrated. If there is no…

For spiritual success, give up the desire for sensual pleasure

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 7:00am 0 Comments

If suppose that someone lights a fire and then immediately pours water on it, we would be surprised by such behaviour. But if a person continues doing the same thing again and again then we would be completely shocked by this nonsensical behaviour.

Practicing devotional life but continuing with sense gratification is also a crazy behaviour. Devotional life is like burning fire and getting engrossed into sensual pleasure is like pouring water on the fire. Many a times we want to carry…

Find a house where no one has died!

Posted on April 3, 2014 at 9:26am 0 Comments

Once a woman in utter distress approached Lord Buddha. Her son had died and she wanted Buddha to bring her son back to life. The compassionate Buddha asked her to go to each and every household of the village and inquire if there is any house in which no one has ever died. If she could find such a house then he promised that he would give her son a new life. The woman frantically ran to the village in search of such a house. She knocked at each door but to her dismay she could not find any…
