The Road of Tears

How to express deep spiritual realizations without making them sound trivial? Words we use in this world can, at best, describe the experiences of this world; never transcendental insights.

Two Essential Keys to Increase our Attraction to Sri Krishna

Our greatest problem is that we have turned away from Krishna. This one action has turned into our existential dilemma. We are lost servants. But strangely we think, at least unconsciously, that it is Krishna who has abandoned us. Only when we become eager to meet Krishna again, and serve Him with body, mind and heart – as eager as a drowning man is eager to breathe again – can we attain our spiritual success. Real love, however, will only flow when we move out of the center and put Krishna there... Read more
