Three Ways To Conquer Indolence

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna's lotus feet]“There is no possibility of one’s becoming a yogi, O Arjuna, if one eats too much, or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 6.16)

“I dig Krishna consciousness. I am into it. I am ready to follow the four regulative principles and chant the maha-mantra: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. I believe in the words of the spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

I am having one particular problem, though. Laziness. I believe it’s referred to as indolence in the Bhagavad-gita As It Is book. Too much sleep is in the mode of ignorance. In the short term, I’m trying to rise to the mode of goodness, which is enlightening and brings the most happiness a material existence…

Friend1: Krishna consciousness is for everyone, right?

Friend2: Of course.

Friend1: It’s not limited to people of a certain region. It’s not one of many kinds of religion.

Friend2: I wouldn’t call it a religion. It’s dharma, which is the essence of the individual, who is spirit. Religion is more like faith, something to be accepted, given up, not looked at in depth, what have you.

Friend1: Real religion should be beyond faith.

Friend2: I’ll give you an example. The 1986 Mets.

Friend1: The baseball team?

Friend2: Yes. That was the first year I followed any kind of professional sports. I was very young. In that year I learned what a season is, a playoff series…

नासा ने सौर मंडल के जैसे एक और सौर मंडल खोजा : केप्लर 90

विज्ञान विश्व

नासा ने हमारे सौर मंडल के तुल्य एक तारा-ग्रह प्रणाली खोजी है जिसके पास आठ ग्रह है। इस तारे का नाम केप्लर 90 है।

केप्लर 90 और सौर मंडल के ग्रहों के आकार की तुलना केप्लर 90 और सौर मंडल के ग्रहों के आकार की तुलना

अमेरिकी स्पेस एजेंसी नासा को एक बड़ी सफलता मिली है। NASA के केपलर अंतरिक्ष दूरबीम ने हमारे जितना बड़ा ही एक और तारा-ग्रह प्रणाली खोजी है। दरअसल, यह तारा और उसके ग्रह पहले ही खोजे गये था, अब वहीं पर आठवें ग्रह की भी पहचान कर ली गई है। ऐसे में सूर्य या उस जैसे किसी तारे की परिक्रमा करने के मामले में केपलर-90 प्रणाली की तुलना हमारे सौरमंडल से की जा सकती है।

इसका अर्थ यह है कि केप्लर 90 के पास हमारे सूर्य के जैसे आठ ग्रह है। इसके पहले केप्लर 90 मे ट्रेपिस्ट -1 के जैसे सात ग्रह ज्ञात थे।

खास बात यह है कि इस खोज में गूगल की ओर से कृत्रिम…

Three Reasons Lakshmana Is Called Ramanuja

Krishna's Mercy

[Rama and Lakshmana eating]“That best among men would not go to sleep without Him, nor would he eat without Him, even if the food brought was very palatable.” (Valmiki Ramayana, Bala Kand, 18.30)

It goes in cycles. Man is in trouble. This is society in general, not just a single person. The cause is always the same: forgetfulness of God. The original person, the creator, Lord Brahma received instruction from within the heart. He thus became the first spiritual master, ready to start a chain of disciplic succession.

As can be expected, along the way some people don’t follow. They create their own rules and regulations, driven by the mode of passion. Dharma and adharma trade places. A simple example is the thief. For them the nighttime and acting in secret are auspicious. Honesty and respect for private property are sinful.

As is explained in…

Mamata For Rama

Krishna's Mercy

[Shri Rama]“Tulsi says that those who have an intimate attachment to Shri Rama also look upon everyone with an equal vision. Without attachment, anger, distress, or bad qualities, the devotee crosses over the ocean of birth and death.” (Dohavali, 94)

The Sanskrit word mamata means a strong level of attachment. It is often referenced in relationship to children. Mamata also refers to “mine,” the feeling of possession.

“These are my children. I love them so much. They are the world to me. If I had to rank the people most important in my life, they would be at the top of the list. Sadly, others don’t compare.”

In material life such a mentality certainly exists, but it is not entirely beneficial. After all, others have…

When Friends Turn To Snakes

Krishna's Mercy

Fink. Dirt-bag. Jerk. Snake. Someone you called a friend for so long has turned on you. It happened suddenly. You weren’t expecting it. They prioritized a physical object over your association. They told you, “No offense,” as if that means anything. A person tells you that they respect the country and everyone that lives in it, yet they refer to a certain segment of people as racists, without knowing each individual personally. They refuse to honor the flag of the nation in which they live, but when they go overseas they immediately…

Four Things That Will Happen If You Stop Believing In God

Krishna's Mercy

[Shri Krishna]“Without pious activities, if a man is in a distressed condition he becomes an agnostic, communist or something like that. Because he does not firmly believe in God, he thinks that he can adjust his distressed condition by totally disbelieving in Him.” (The Nectar Of Devotion, Ch 3)

“I put everything into it. There was full faith, the real kind. I had no other hope. Every other tweak, adjustment, or attempt had no impact. The end was nearing. I turned to prayer. I prayed more intensely than I ever have before.

The result? Nothing. The person succumbed to the illness. They are gone. A tragic death, too. So young. So good. They never sinned in their life; at least from what was known. Everybody loved this person. They leave behind a wonderful, but grieving family.

Maybe God isn’t real. Maybe the way to…
