Elections at the present moment

Quote from our beloved Srila Prabhupada:

 

"At the present moment, the world is inclined toward the democratic process, but the people in general are all contaminated by the modes of passion and ignorance. Consequently they cannot select the right person to head the government. " - 5.5.20

Prediction for the age of Kali

The next prediction to be fulfilled, which is already coming

to pass, is that because of the sinful activities of the citizens and the

government, rain will become increasingly scarce. Gradually there will be complete drought and no production of food grains. People will be reduced to eating flesh and seeds, and many good, spiritually inclined people will have to forsake their homes because they will be too harassed by drought, taxation and famine. The Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is the only hope to save the world from such devastation. It is the most scientific and authorized movement for the actual welfare of the whole human society.

Who wants to help to organize Govardhana Puja?

 

Dear devotees, well-wishers and friends of the Hare Krsna Center Montreal!

 

Please accept my most humble obeisances at your lotus feet

 

All glories to the most beautiful acarya of all acaryas His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada!

 

 

 

The month of Karttika is getting more and more ecstatic and with so many of you taking up the process of japa and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and visiting the temple on daily basis, we would like to invite you to take even more active part and kindly help us to organize the most ecstatic celebration of the Govardhana Puja festival for the pleasure of our beloved most enchanting and loveable Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

 

First of all, we should understand the seriousness of this celebration. Although certainly a very happy and jovial transcendental party where devotees can meet and serve together, every transcendental festival mentioned in the Bhaktivedanta Lives In Sound Society Vaisnava Calendar published on our website, is also an opportunity to please the Lord and acquire His special mercy. For any aspiring devotee, it is essential to take part in celebrating the Lord’s different festivals throughout the year. In fact, it is not only essential but some of the Vedic scriptures give a hint that failing to do so is actually an offense to the Lord. In the supplementary Vedic literature, there is a mention of a list of 32 offenses in the matter of serving the Lord. Number two offense is stated as follows: One should not fail to observe the various festivals for the pleasure of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, such as Janmastami, Ratha-yatra, etc. Srila Prabhupada quotes this in his Nectar of devotion in Ch.8. A sincere devotee will carefully take note of this. In fact, anyone with just a little sincerity and an open mind must feel what we all feel when associating with like-minded devotees and glorifying the Lord together- the feeling of home, security and non-judgmental, freedom-based, open-minded atmosphere. So it is not a question of force, but a spontaneous outburst of natural desire to take part in such festivity. But for those who feel weak and overwhelmed by the strong force of the material energy, Lord Krsna gives a stern warning and that especially in regards to the celebration of the Govardhana Puja, in the 10th Canto, 24th chapter of the Srimad Bhagavatam:

 

 

 

eso 'vajanato martyan

 

kama-rupi vanaukasah

 

hanti hy asmai namasyamah

 

sarmane atmano gavam

 

 

 

(Bhag. 10.24.37)

 

 

 

"One who neglects the worship of Govardhana-puja, as I am personally conducting it, will not be happy. There are many snakes on Govardhana Hill, and persons neglecting the prescribed duty of Govardhana-puja will be bitten by these snakes and killed. In order to assure the good fortune of the cows and themselves, all people of Vrndavana near Govardhana must worship the hill, as prescribed by Me."

 

 

 

As you might know already every temple of Srila Prabhupada whether big or small is a direct expansion of the city of Vrndavana and as such it is duty of all the people of Montreal and also Vinodol in Slovakia to come and help us to celebrate the Lord on this auspicious day of Govardhana Puja. At least those who have a little faith and do not take Lord Krsna as an imaginary or mythological figure should take these statements of the Vedic literatures very seriously and come and take part.  

 

 

 

In case you belong to such a group of faithful lovers of Krsna and are indeed awaiting the Govardhana Puja with great eagerness, Lord Krsna in the very same literature gives direct instructions on how to perform this festival. He says:

 

 

 

 

 

pacyantam vividhah pakah

 

supantah payasadayah

 

samyavapupa-saskulyah

 

sarva-dohas ca grhyatam

 

 

 

huyantam agnayah samyag

 

brahmanair brahma-vadibhih

 

annam bahu-gunam tebhyo

 

deyam vo dhenu-daksinah

 

 

 

anyebhyas casva-candala-

 

patitebhyo yatharhatah

 

yavasam ca gavam dattva

 

giraye diyatam balih

 

 

 

 

 

SB 10.24.26-28

 

 

 

 

 

"Prepare very nice foods of all descriptions from the grain and ghee collected for the yajna. Prepare rice, dal, then halava, pakora, puri and all kinds of milk preparations, such as sweet rice, rabri, sweetballs, sandesa, rasagulla and laddu, and invite the learned brahmanas who can chant the Vedic hymns and offer oblations to the fire. The brahmanas should be given all kinds of grain in charity. Then decorate all the cows and feed them well. After performing this, give money in charity to the brahmanas. As far as the lower animals are concerned, such as the dogs, and the lower grades of people, such as the candalas, or the fifth class of men, who are considered untouchable, they also may be given sumptuous prasadam. After nice grasses have been given to the cows, the sacrifice known as Govardhana-puja may immediately begin. This sacrifice will very much satisfy Me."

 

 

 

(KB 24: Worshiping Govardhana Hill)

 

 

 

Here’s further instruction from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the top most acarya of recent times on how to celebrate the Govardhana Puja and we shall take inspiration from these invaluable instructions:

 

 

 

Prabhupada: Vegetarian food is very nice. We can give you vegetable menu, three hundred items at least.

 

Dai Nippon representative: Three hundred?

 

Prabhupada: Three hundred. Simply grains, fruits, and butter, that's all, and sugar. You give us these four items and we give you three hundred items. Yes. There is a ceremony in India, annakuta, Govardhana-puja. So in that ceremony, in each and every temple they prepare as many varieties as possible. Some of them prepare three thousand.

 

Dai Nippon representative: Three thousand.

 

Prabhupada: Yes. For weeks they prepare. And the competition is the more items the temple prepares, he becomes... [break] And distribution, prasada distribution, free of charges. It was a very nice system that nobody should remain hungry. That is the system. If there is any temple in any neighborhood, in that neighborhood nobody should remain hungry.

 

 

 

Conversation with Dai Nippon --  April 22, 1972, Tokyo

 

 

 

This Dipabali function can be observed on 21st October, and Prasad can be distributed on the 22nd October, during daytime, which is known as Govardhana Puja and Annakuta Ceremony. In India, in all Vaisnava temples, this ceremony is observed and 100's of people are given Prasad according to the capacity of the temple.

 

 

 

Letter to: Hansadutta  --  Seattle 10 October, 1968

 

 

 

Yes, this Govardhana puja is a bona fide procedure, but such things cannot be held in your country. It requires good space to decorate the imitation hill of rice. So when we offer such hill of rice, there must be other things also -- a hill of capatis and other things. It is a huge affair. In India practically in all the Visnu temples this is observed and they spend huge amounts for this purpose and they distribute prasadam to thousands and everyone gathers to take even a little portion of it. If you can introduce this Govardhana puja, I have no objection, but it requires hard labor, good management and much money also. But the process is bona fide.

 

 

 

Letter to: Damodara  --  Nairobi, Kenya 3 October, 1971

 

 

 

 

 

The effect of celebrating this festival is beyond our scope to understand as stated in the following quote:

 

 

 

 

 

From your report I can understand that you are very enthusiastic. I like also your idea of celebrating Govardhana puja. This should be our programme to attract the general mass of people. If we go on preaching vigorously as we have been for another 25 year then all these other so called religions will disappear. After all what do they have to offer. In the Christian religion all we see is Christ's picture as he was crucified, so how people can be attracted to such thing? There is no science, philosophy, music, art, Prasadam, it is no wonder that the people are rejecting this nonsense. Not that Christ himself was nonsense, but those who are preaching in his name they are nonsense because they do not follow even the simplest of his orders. "Thou shalt not Kill.'' I have met with so many Christians and when I ask them why Christians are killing they cannot answer. The first principle of spiritual life is non violence. They will say Killing in this matter means actually Murder, but accepting even this argument, it means that the society in which Christ was preaching were composed of Murderers, so what kind of men they were, and practically we see it is a fact that because they murdered Lord Jesus Christ. At any rate there is nothing in the world thAT CAN COMPARE WITH our Movement of Chanting and dancing. So Chant dance and when you get tired take Prasadm, this is our actual solid preaching work all over the world.

 

 

 

Letter to: Bhakta dasa  --  Bhaktivedanta Manor 3 August, 1973

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore please do not delay and contact us immediately if you want to take part in the celebration and also organization of this festival and I promise you lots of realization and advancement in your Krsna consciousness by engaging in practical devotional service for the pleasure of the Lord in the association of devotees. These are the possible ways how to help(please do not hesitate to come up with new ideas!):

 

 

 

  1. donations of cooking ingredients such as rice, dhal, ghee, butter, sugar, vegetables, milk, flour, semolina, fruits, flowers for Lord Caitanya alter, etc.

  2. donations in cash

  3. helping out with propagation of the festival in the streets of Montreal(printing flyers, hanging posters, advertising on FB or other internet websites

  4. helping out in the kitchen on Monday

  5. helping out with temple decorations

  6. helping out with cleaning, pot washing etc

  7. helping out with shopping for the ingredients.

  8. inviting friends and family members to take part in the festival

     

     

     

     

    You can reach us either by email, by phone or you can talk to us in person during your visits in the Center. All the organization must be clarified before Sunday the 30th of October.

     

    PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND THE UPCOMING SATURDAY LOVE FEAST where we can all together discuss and organize who will do what.

     

    The festival will take place on Monday 31st of October 2016 at the 7070 Birnam Hare Krsna Center Montreal and starts at 5.00pm. See you soon!

     

    HAPPY GOVARDHANA PUJA TO EVERYONE.

     

    Your servant Purujit dasa

Offer Lord Krsna a Light Daily in the Temple

Another important function during the month of Karttika is to visit the temple of Krsna at least once a dayand offer Krsna a light. The Lord becomes very pleased to see a sincere effortto worship Him and bestows benediction of pure devotional service during thismonth if the offering is done with sincerity. Please do not miss a single dayand visit the Hare Krsna Center Montreal, which is a unique place where the bona spiritual master is respected with full awe and reverence and see the effect of how your Krsna consciousness florishes. Srila Prabhupada says:

 

In Vrndavana we shallhave Urja-vrata for one month. You also could observe urja-vrata here from thenext Ekadasi, one month. I have already instructed Karandhara to have a skylamp and put candle in the evening to the Deity for one month. Each one, asmall candle should... Departure -- LosAngeles, October 5, 1972

 

He also describes:

 

It is stated in the Hari-bhakti-sudhodaya, "Persons who are impelled by pure devotionalservice in Krsna consciousness and who therefore go to see the Deities of Visnuin the temple will surely get relief from entering again into the prison houseof a mother's womb." The conditioned soul forgets the trouble of livingwithin the mother's womb during birth, but it is a very painful and terribleexperience. In order to make an escape from this material condition, one isadvised to visit a temple of Visnu with devotional consciousness. Then one canvery easily get out of the miserable condition of material birth.

YUPEE, THE MONTH OF KARTTIKA BEGINS!

by Purujit Dasa

 

The month of Karttika also known as Urja vrata begins today on Sunday the 16th of October and willlast until the Rasa-Lila Day on the next full moon night. This month isespecially ausicious for those who want to get their devotional desires to befulfilled and any devotional service you might execute during this month isbelieved to be extraordinarily effective. Devotees of Krsna therefore makedifferent vows which they faithfully execute during this month. For example onemakes a vow to chant some extra rounds on the japa-mala, do some extra servicefor the temple of Krsna, read an extra chapter of the Bhagavad-gita etc. Thereis no restriction on what vows one should take as long as the service is doneunder the guidance of the bona fide spiritual master. The main point is toincrease our meditation on the Lord and elevate our consciousness more andmore. No devotee thinks he's perfect and any sincere devotee naturally takesadvantage of this auspicious month. Srila Prabhupada explains:

A weekly quote from Srila Prabhupada

By nature, you say that you refused meat. Although you were born of a father and mother meat-eaters, still. What a horrible civilization they have made. He's human being born; making him animal by culture. Instead of making him more cultured towards the spiritual life, making him redirected again to animal life. This is the civilization, Western civilization.

Weekly Quote From Srila Prabhupada

To counteract the distress of this material body, one has to take on another distressed condition. Both situations are only illusion. There is no gain in taking on one trouble to counteract another trouble. The conclusion is that one cannot be perpetually happy as long as one exists in this material world. The only remedy is to get out of this material world altogether and return home, back to Godhead.  4.29.34

Hospitals:

 

"Everyone can

experience that although we try to keep the body in a comfortable position, it is always giving pain and is subjected to the threefold miseries. Otherwise, why are there so many hospitals, welfare boards and insurance establishments? Actually, in this world there is no happiness. People are simply engaged trying

to counteract unhappiness."

In the propagation of the Krsna consciousness movement, we actually see that many people are not attracted because they are mudhas engaged in fruitive activity."

No question of uncertainty

"Krsna knows everything, but one cannot know Krsna without being favored by Him. Thus for Krsna and His representative there is no question of a theory of uncertainty certain and is applicable to the past, present and future. Nor is there any uncertainty for one who knows

exactly what Krsna says. The Krsna consciousness movement is based on Bhagavad-gita as it is, as spoken

 

by Lord Krsna, and for those who are engaged in this movement, there is no question of uncertainty."

Chanted jokingly or seriously the effect is equally distributed

 

``The Krsna consciousness movement should perform sankirtana-yajnas one after another, so much that all the people of the world will either jokingly or seriously chant Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare. Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, and thus they will derive the benefit of cleansing the heart. holy name

of the Lord (harer nama) is so powerful that whether it is chanted jokingly or seriously the effect vibrating this transcendental sound will be equally distributed.``

The position of nondevotees is lamentable

A quote from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada :

 

``The position of all nondevotees, who are not interested

in going back to Godhead, is very much lamentable, for the human form of life is meant for executing

 

devotional service and nothing else.``

Advancement In Knowledge

`The word vrddhasrayam is very significant in this verse. Vrddha refers to one who is advanced in

knowledge. There are two kinds of old men--he who is advanced in years and he who is experienced in

knowledge. One who is advanced in knowledge is actually vrddha (jnana-vrddha); one does not become

vrddha simply by advancing in age. Vrddhasrayam, a person who takes shelter of a superior person who is

advanced in knowledge, can acquire all the good qualities of a brahmana and be trained in good behavior.`

 

-Quoted from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (4th Canto Srimad Bhagavatam)

Go-dasa, Serving the Senses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore the brāhmaṇa says: "My dear Lord, I tried to become master, but I have become servant of my senses. Now I see that I have served so long, but my so-called master, they are not satisfied." Everyone knows. Even up to the end of life, one tries to become master. But that is not possible, because he's not master.

Atheist, diplomat or a woman

An atheistic person cannot be firm in his word of honor. One who cannot control the senses cannot be steady in his determination. The great politician Canakya Pandita said, "Never put your trust in a diplomat or in a woman." Those who are addicted to unrestricted sense gratification can never be truthful, nor can they be trusted with any faith.

Taking Care of The Soul

 

       

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This ignorance that "I am this body" is a great burden, a burden upon us. So when you get out of this burden, then you feel relieved. Brahma-bhūtaḥ prasannātmā. Means when actually one understands that "I am not this body; I am soul," then he has to work so hard for maintaining this body, so he gets relief, that "Why I am working so hard for this lump of material thing? Let me execute my real necessity of life, spiritual life." That is great relief. That is great relief.

knowledge

Atreya-rsi: Prabhupada, when you instruct that the scientists should use their science to discover Krsna, could we as your students acquire scientific knowledge also...

Prabhupada: No. You don't require to acquire scientific... Whatever knowledge you have got, with that knowledge you try to please Krsna.

Atreya-rsi: Yes.

Prabhupada: Main business is to please Krsna. Now, because I am saying the scientists may do this for pleasing, that doesn't mean that you have to become a scientist and then please Krsna. Whatever you have got, please Krsna.

LSD & Hell

Harikesa: Once they gave the Maharishi four big pills of LSD.

Prabhupada: Who?

Harikesa: His disciples gave him, Maharishi, four big pills of LSD.

Pusta Krsna: Maharishi?

Harikesa: Yes. And he just stood there and said nothing happened. So everybody said, "This is proof that he's already there."

Prabhupada: Huh?

Harikesa: Because he just stood there and said, "Nothing is happening to me," everybody has figured that he is already there.

Prabhupada: "There" means where?

Harikesa: At the ultimate.

Prabhupada: Hell. (laughter)

God Is The Most Sinful

Devotee (3): [reading from Krsna Book, "Delivery of the Message of Krsna to the Gopis"  [KB 47]] "‘So Lord Ramacandra, as a ksatriya, should have fought with Vali face to face but, instigated by His friend, He killed him from behind a tree. Thus He deviated from the religious principles of a ksatriya. Also, He was so attracted by the beauty of Sita that He converted Surpanakha, the sister of Ravana, into a ugly women by cutting off her nose and ears. Surpanakha proposed an intimate relationship with Him, and as a ksatriya He should have satisfied her. But He was so selfish that He could not forget Sita-devi and converted Surpanakha into an ugly women. Before that birth as a ksatriya, He took his birth as a brahmana boy, known as Vamanadeva, and asked charity from Bali Maharaja. Bali Maharaja was so magnanimous that he gave Him whatever he had, yet Krsna as Vamanadeva ungratefully arrested him, just like a crow, and pushed him down to the Patala kingdom. We know all about Krsna and how ungrateful He is, but here is the difficulty: In spite of His being so cruel and hard-hearted, it is very difficult for us to give up talking about Him.  Not only we are unable to give up..."


Prabhupada: This is the difficulty. He is the most sinful, but we cannot give up His talking. That is our difficulty. This is love. [indistinct] all life for Him, I love him [indistinct] all life forms I love. Similarly here, gopis' position is they are finding out so many discrepancies in the life of Krsna, but they cannot give up. The difficulty is they cannot even stop this thought.
