    Unfortunately we are under the influence of maya, we accept this spot life of only a few years as our permanent existence and thus we are illusioned by our material possessions such as family, house, land, wealth etc. And we are very much attached to these illusory possessions and serve them instead of diligently serving the Lord.

    Krishna is present in the form of His transcendental name, and we can contact Him immediately by hearing His name. Simply by hearing the name Krishna we immediately become freed from material contamination.

    Recently we all have witnessed an Adidaivic misery in the form of Tsunami sea waves, which struck coastal areas of India and a few other countries. Amoung those who had lost their lives were many children and youths. I was wondering whether Krishna is showing through this incident the importance of his instruction

    One who with undeviating attention constantly recites this literature at every moment of every hour, as well as one who faithfully hears even one verse or half a verse or a single line or even half a line, certainly purifies his very self.

    In the pastime of Lord Narasingha dev, we see how the undeviated bhakti of child Prahalad saved him from his father who was the extremely powerful demon king Hiranyakasipu. Krishna is impartial. He has no personal likes nor hatred and does not favour one against another.

    In order to fulfill our material desire of sense gratification we are falling in our own pitfall of lust. Nobody can say he has zero desire and even after fulfillment of a desire we still hanker to have more and more, ie., Lobha (Greed). When Lobha is not getting fulfilled we get Krodha(Anger).

    The beauty of these conversations is that Srila Prabhupada reveals so many sublime instructions in a casual and practical manner. Somehow I feel that hearing these conversations are so much more effective because when we hear Srila Prabhupada speak, the tone of his voice and the intensity pierces directly through our heart without any effort from our side.

    Krishna's service, as we know what is meant by service: you carry the order of some person. That is service. Master orders, and the servant carries out the order. This is service. Just like in the Bhagavad-gita the master, Krishna, orders Arjuna to fight.

    Most of us although believe in Krishna, many times doubt His words or His existence. When we face problems in life we start losing faith in Him and our devotional service suffer badly. A real devotee never leaves his devotional service instead his faith increases in the Lord when he faces troubles.

    Dear devotees,
    Hare Krishna.Please accept my humble obeisances.All glories to Srila Prabhupad and Srila Gurudev.

    Here's a small story of Akbar and Birbal.

    One day King Akbar asked Birbal, "Why is it that your God behaves so strangely? Doesn't your Lord Krishna have any servant? Each time a devotee calls for help, the Lord runs himself. Surely he can employ others to do such work?"

    "Oh! Yes" said Birbal having a plan to explain the fact to the King.

    Once upon a time there was a very strong woodcutter. He asked for a job from a timber merchant, and he got it. The pay was really good and so were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work.
