March 13, 2023: We Love the People
Dear devotees: We want to share with you the bliss of our Rishikesh Kirtan Festival this past week. It has proved to be more successful than we ever expected, due primarily to the enthusiasm of the many western spiritual seekers who have come to Rishikesh and participated in our programs. We have realised more than ever how Lord Caitanya gave us all the perfect formula for becoming Krsna conscious in this age, namely chanting the holy names, dancing in ecstacy and relishing Krsna prasadam!

March 17th, 2023: Teachings of Lord Kapila
“In the beginning of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra, we first address the internal energy of Krsna, Hare. Thus we say, ‘O Radharani! O Hare! O energy of the Lord!’ When we address someone in this way, they usually say, ‘Yes, what do you want?’ The answer is: ‘Please engage me in Your service.’ This should be our prayer.” ( Teachings of Lord Kapila, page 32 )
