Japa Group: Chanting These Sweet Names


“The holy name, character, pastimes and activities of Krsna are all transcendentally sweet like sugar candy. Although the tongue of one afflicted by the jaundice of avidya (ignorance) cannot taste anything sweet, it is wonderful that simply by carefully chanting these sweet names every day, a natural relish awakens within his tongue, and his disease is gradually destroyed at the root.”

Patrick, Al and the Mantra

Toronto, Ontario

Students from U of T, the country’s largest university, frequently walk through Queen’s Park to reach various building on campus. It was the perfect spot for our little chanting party. Naturally we were trying to give the mantra exposure. Three out of the five of us wore robes, the remaining two had civilian clothes. Students were curious.

It was St. Patrick’s Day. I knew that I could put the mantra to “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” but I thought my co-chanters would struggle with that tune. We settled for the tune to “Amazing Grace.” Incidentally, Patrick is the name of on of our chanters and he very much approved. In fact, the melody blew him away.

When we completed our session, Dwija Gauranga, a super-monk from our local ashram, and I noticed a large bronze statue of Canadian poet, Al Purdy, near our chanting spot. Here’s a poem which at the end reflects some truth from the Gita regarding thoughts that carry over into the next existence.

The Last Picture in the World

A hunched grey shape
framed by leaves
with lake water behind
standing on our
little point of land
like a small monk
in a green monastery

almost sculpture
except that it’s alive
brooding immobile permanent
for half an hour
a blue heron
and it occurs to me
that if I were to die at this moment
that picture would accompany me
wherever I am going
for part of the way

ISKCON Melbourne, AU: Daily Class - Ramai Swami - Srimad Bhagavatam 11.18.29

SB 11.18.29: Although most wise, the paramahaḿsa should enjoy life like a child, oblivious to honor and dishonor; although most expert, he should behave like a stunted, incompetent person; although most learned, he should speak like an insane person; and although a scholar learned in Vedic regulations, he should behave in an unrestricted manner.

SB 11.18.29: Aunque sea el más sabio, el paramahaḿsa debe disfrutar de la vida como un niño, olvidadizo para honrar y para deshonrar; aunque dentro de la mayoría es el más experto, él debe comportarse como un impedido, una persona incompetente; aunque la mayoría aprenderían de él, él debe hablar como una persona insana; y aunque sea un erudito, aprenderá en las regulaciones Védicas, él debe comportarse de esta manera sin restricción.

Srimad Bhagavatam 11.18.29 - Even the behavior of a paramahamsa is set by the Supreme Lord.

Sri Nandanandana das: Ancient Chola period temple unearthed in North Jaffna

Special corr., Tuesday, 9 March 2010

A heap of ruins where a Hindu temple of Chola period was believed to have been buried has been unearthed in the Northern part of Delft. The temple is 40 feet long and 10 feet wide. It is built with lime stone. The roof is covered with lime mixed plaster. The other parts of the temple are in ruins. Professor P. Pushparatnam of the Jaffna University History Department commenting on the findings, said the people of the locality are unable to say when this temple was built. The ruins indicate that the building would have been built many years ago. It is opined that if this temple had been built during the latter period of the Dutch reign or in the beginning of British rule in Sri Lanka, the people would be in a position to give some clues about the origin of the temple, he said. The people of the area would not have allowed the temple to go to ruin if it had been built during the Dutch or British period. It can be surmised that the temple was built before European rule in Sri Lanka, Prof. Pushparatnam said. The statues and the art work on stones, irrigation pipes made of baked clay and a coin found by one of Prof. Pushparatnam’s students with the name of Rajaraja Cholan embossed on it clearly indicate that the temple would have been built during the Chola period.

Sri Nandanandana das: Bronze-era Buddhist sites discovered

The Italian archaeological mission in Pakistan has discovered a large number of Buddhist sites and rock shelters in Kandak and Kota valleys of Barikot in Swat in the North West Frontier Province which depicted the carvings and paintings from the bronze and iron ages. “These are some of the finest and most fascinating ancient discoveries preserved in good condition,” said Director of the archaeological mission, Dr Luca Maria Olivieri, yesterday. These rock carvings depict agricultural cult scenes in red colours, cup marks meant for rituals, for example, for holding liquids or preparing the ochre pigment, dancing scenes, battle scenes and a large number of animals,” said Dr Olivieri.

Sri Nandanandana das: 4,500-year-old Harappan settlement excavated in Kutch

Ahmedabad, Mar 7, 2010 (PTI)
A vast settlement surrounded by a fortified structure believed to be about 4,500 years old and belonging to the Harappan civilisation has been excavated at Shikarpur village in Kutch district.
The team which has been excavating the site in Bhachau taluka of Kutch since last three years, is headed by Kuldeep Bhan and P Ajithprasad of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History of the Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara.
“A huge fortified structure made out of unbaked mud bricks has been excavated by our team. The ratio of height, width and length of the bricks is 1:2:4 which is what we call Harappan ratio,” Ajithprasad told PTI.
“The fortification is spread over nearly one hectare area, with 10 m thick walls,” he said.
“Though the exact period when this structure could have been constructed is yet to be ascertained, primarily it appears to be roughly 4500-years-old, built between 2500 BC and 2200 BC and is part of the Harappan civilisation,” Ajithprasad said.
“The purpose of building such thick walls could be protection from natural calamities, external enemy or to impress upon other settlements,” he added. According to the professor, the fortification has an open space in the centre with small structures surrounding it. ”The site is one quarter the size of the biggest Harappan site in the state located in Dholavira, Kutch and four times the size of another site of the same era in Bagasra,” Ajithprasad said. Situated on a mound locally known as Valmio Timbo (mound) measuring about 3.4 hectares, it is located 4.5 km south of Shikarpur village at the edge of the narrow creek extending eastward from the Gulf of Kutch. It is close to National Highway-15 connecting Kutch district with other parts of the state.
“The site was earlier excavated from 1987 to 1989 by the Gujarat State Archaeology Department but details about it were not published and whatever little was published was inconclusive,” Ajithprasad said.
Therefore, the site was taken up for re-excavation due to its strategic location and establish the cultural sequence as well as the settlement features in terms of economic activities, he added.
During the three years of excavation, the site has revealed Harappan artifacts, especially ceramics and triangular terracotta cakes, spread rather evenly on the surface. In addition to the classical Harappan pottery, the surface assemblage included small amounts of regional pottery. Other sites of Harappan civilisation excavated in Gujarat include Kanmer in Kutch, Gola Dhoro (Bagasara), Nageshwar, Nagwada, Kuntasi in northern Saurashtra and Juni Kuran in northern Kutch.

HH. Satsvarupa das Goswami: '379' from The Yellow Submarine

4:08 A.M.

I slept well last night, tired from my physiotherapy. I had long dreams, but they didn’t keep me awake. I didn’t get up out of bed until Narayana came and woke me after 3 A.M. So I’m behind on my rounds. But the rounds have been going well. I compare it to riding on a bicycle although I have promised myself never to ride a bicycle again since my broken shoulder accident. [more]But this morning I feel like I’m peddling along smoothly. It reminds me of the time when we stayed on that island in the autumn in Italy and there were so many leaves on the ground. There were no people visiting the tourists’ space, and we had it all to ourselves. Smoothly riding just me and Madhu all over the many acred grounds. So this morning I’m chanting, yes it’s mechanical, but I’m wide awake, steering carefully to not be distracted and cheerful in mind that I’m doing the maha-mantras. I can’t expect much more than that in my present state of advancement. Chant Hare Krishna and ride your bike.

We’re down to just a few days now before we start our travel first to New York and then to Trinidad and Guyana. It will be risky to expect peaceful chanting while I’m travelling. I so much like sitting in my own room chanting in a solitary way. I’ll try my best, however, to keep the solitary chanting in the early morning hours (even while I travel) before I meet the devotees in the day. Chant Hare Krishna in your bhajan-kutir wherever it may be. And keep the count and keep the numerical strength and keep the rapidity and keep your mind on the sound vibrations of the syllables. These are my stock in trade.

You ride your bike
today, your Hare Krishna
mantra bike, and it doesn’t
seem dangerous, not
like the physical ride.
You keep your balance
in your mind, and the names
from your mouth, and your
faith in your heart.
Your heart faith is deep
beneath the surface, and
you wish it were more
accessible an emotion,
but at least you know it
is there, feeling and dedication
to the practice of japa, your
daily vow, your pleasant
ride, your life-important
sustenance, your life-air.

HH. Satsvarupa das Goswami: 'Portraits of Prabhupada' from The Yellow Submarine

Prabhupada Smaranam

Prabhupada at two phases in his life. In the first he is more full-faced and healthier. In the second he is gaunt, his cheeks thinned out and not looking so strong. But we loved him equally at every stage of his life. We were confident when he was healthy, even though old, and more anxious when he appeared more delicate. As he grew weaker we thought that he might not have long to stay with us. It dragged out, and we grew accustomed to living with it, always hoping that he would stay despite his fragility. At the very end of his life when he stayed in his room alone, he once remarked, “You don’t like to stay with me. You think I am contaminated.” That was hurtful. It wasn’t true. We didn’t think he was contaminated. But he just laid there and had nothing to say and seemed to want to be left alone. It was delicate. He didn’t want to be left alone, but he didn’t communicate, so we left him alone sometimes, maybe too much. Maybe he wanted someone to just sit with him.

When he was normal he would talk a lot except when he wanted to be alone to write or chant or just to be with himself. But later it was different. There were long hours that he would stay with his eyes shut. He wanted to be loved, and we wanted to love him. We wanted to show him our love. But he grew too weak to talk. We would sit with him and hold soft kirtan with just one pair of small karatalas. Or a devotee would read to him from one of his translations and commentaries. He stopped giving lectures or having long talks with devotees in his room. He would talk to Tamal Krishna Goswami about his health or with his servant Upendra or with whoever happened to be on watch.

When he felt better he would talk philosophy or plans of spreading his mission, but that was not near the end. He didn’t like being ill, and he thought what is the use of living like this? So he stopped eating and drinking, and said he would die. But we encouraged him to live and pleaded with him that we needed him. So he agreed to stay. But he kept diminishing, and Krishna was acting in that way, to end his life.

HH. Satsvarupa das Goswami: 'Dearmost' from The Yellow Submarine

Krishna is my dearmost.
I eat His prasad everyday,
although I don’t offer the prayer
very carefully. I’ll
be with Him at death.

And He is the solid companion,
unseen with me, every moment
of every day. He’s the haunting
melody of my life. It’s odd
how I don’t live so close
and fervently with Him, yet
He is definitely my dearmost.

He is the most important person
and force, the most tender
carer of my needs, and if I
seem to be treated roughly
it’s not His personal doing.

He’s kind to me and to all
living entities, although
I don’t comprehend it very
well. I’m guided by
the sastras, and they are
the information I believe
in rather than academic
speculation or

My dear Lord, heard in
the melodies. He accompanies
me in my visit to the physiotherapist
and helps me through the
awkward moments so they
come out alright.

Even the planned travels
will be dedicated to Him,
and I will get through
them even if I don’t
physically survive. My
bones are tired, and I
feel like an old man,
but I’m the same person
in consciousness that I
was when I was young.

I’m worried because the
last two nights my
dreams were not wholesome
or holy. I have a long way to go to saintliness.
I still live in the mundane and my unconscious
dreams seem to attest
to that. There is so much
to worry about, but yet I try
not to get traumatic,
you take it easy and soon
He is with you caring for
you, and you count on
your relationship with Prabhupada.

I’ve been writing on photos of
myself walking with Prabhupada,
but I can’t always think about
what to say. You can brag that you are
there beside him, it’s just
his kindness and your good
fortune. But they are
wonderful mementos, and I
want to write, “There I
am standing beside him, and
he’s looking at me, and I’m
wearing my devotee clothes.”

Nearness to Prabhupada is a great
gift. You treasure it in your
old photos, when you were
younger, even though you
were anxious even then.

Krishna is my dearmost friend,
although I cannot claim
I am close to Him like Rupa Gosvami
and other great devotees.

I have been put there, I’ve been
placed there by fate and
past pious activities. Where
are my present pious activities?
Where is my love, my devotion
to the king of Vraja?
Why doesn’t my mind brim
with thoughts of Him?
I’m sad about this, but
I still have an abiding
confidence and that’s all
His credit, His seeing
the good in me as
is His nature,
bhava grahi janardhana.

HH. Satsvarupa das Goswami: 'The Times Are Changing' from The Yellow Submarine

Free write

Skateboard! A crazy way to go. The thrill of balance and speed. It’s a sport for youth with nothing better to do. You could break your board and hurt yourself or smile to survive it. What has this to do with realization of the Absolute Truth? Nothing at all. The cheap thrill of a rush of adrenaline is nothing compared to the pleasure a yogi achieves after thousands of years to attain a glance of all beautiful Krishna. If you’re going to be extreme why not try Krishna consciousness and defy the natural laws of nature? Try giving up intoxication, meat eating, illicit sex and gambling.

The times are changing. As children we used to play harmlessly in the backyard. Now it’s sheer rock face climbing, snowboarding, skateboarding, the urban sport, the ultimate computer destructive games. Sorry if I sound like a grumbly old man, but I can’t help but see it as useless and dangerous. Why not go out chanting the holy names and dancing? In order to indulge in these extreme sports one has to be ignorant that death may be at the end of the next flip. One does not have to go to such extremes to actually lead a thrilling, satisfying life. Just by pleasing God one will derive the deepest bliss and not run a risk of wasting a life and coming back next life as a death defying human or animal. And pleasing God is simple as well as fun. To indulge in death defying acts is a form of atheism, evoking the consciousness that I can’t die, or that death means nothing, or that there is no death. If one thinks there is nothing after death, he or she will be inclined to live it to the fullest in acts of sheer daring, which never lead to ultimate happiness and peace. They just lead you to the next more extreme act of death defiance. Human life and intelligence is meant for attaining something much higher than the next flip.

Srila Prabhupada's Letters

1975 March 18: "If you want to preach there, that is alright, but you cannot interfere. I never said you were GBC. You cannot say that. If you are unable to work under his direction then you must work under my direction, but you are not independent."

Prema-Rupa dd, USA: Sri-Sri Radha-Madanmohan

My Deities, Sri-Sri Radha Madanmohan

I remember when I asked my boyfriend if he would buy Radha-Krishna Deities for me while he was in Mayapur for the installation of Sri Pancha-tattva. I made it clear that I didn’t want anything more than four inches because I was concerned that I wont be able to care for Them very well and I thought having some small Deities would be easier to take care of and seem less formal. At the time I was studying at North Dakota State University and one night he called me, “Did you buy my Deities?” I asked excitedly.
“Well I had to choose between these beautiful ten inch ones and some okay looking four inch ones. So I picked the ten inch ones.”
“You did WHAT?! How will I take care of ten inch Deities?”
“Don’t worry, you’ll love Them, I know you will take good care of Them.”

When he returned to the US he encouraged me to name Them even though I hadn’t seen Them. I wrote down a list of names and tried them out singing for example “Jaya Radha-Govinda, Radha-Govinda, Raaaaadhe!” Eventually I picked the name Radha-Madanmohan, it had the best ring to it and if They truly are as beautiful as my boyfriend said Then “He who attracts even Cupid” will suit Them. My boyfriend thought it was a great name since anyone who had ever seen Them thought They were so beautiful. He sent me an outline of Their bodies so that I could make a new outfit for Them that somehow miraculously fit perfectly. He was right, They were so beautiful, that when he gave Them to me that summer of 2004, I never let Them go.

Once a good friend and godsister of mine and I had a chance to spend some time together. She told me about Guru Maharaj’s project in Ujjain. He was building a big beautiful temple there and she was missing his association. She gave me a picture of the Deities there and when I asked the name of the Deities she replied “Sri-Sri Radha Madanmohan”. She felt very happy staying with me since my Deities were also Radha Madanmohan. It was quite a wonderful coincidence, at the time I wasn’t aspiring for HH BhaktiCharu Swami but I could see that Madanmohan certainly had a plan.

Deity Dressing 3/14/10

Eventually my boyfriend and I got married and I moved to Orlando, Florida. We began to worship Sri-Sri Radha Madanmohan regularly. I noticed in his bookcase was the only volume he owned of Sri Caitanya Cariamrta. It was about the pastime of Srila Sanatana Goswami. What is wonderful about being married to my husband is that through him I began to have a deeper appreciation for Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and an understanding of the acaryas in our parampara. I read that volume with great interest.

The pastime of Srila Sanatana Goswami is pretty amazing. He was put in jail because he no longer wanted to serve the government. He got a letter from his brother Rupa saying “Hey! Lord Caitanya is coming to Benares! Anupama and I are going! Wish you were here!” Sanatan Goswami bribed the guard to let him out. He fled to see Lord Caitanya in Benares and despite his wealthy background, he gave it all up and wore a simple torn quilt and a woolen blanket- he eventually gave up the blanket. So he’s sitting outside the home of where Lord Caitanya was staying and Lord Caitanya was like “Candrasekhara, there’s a devotee at your door, bring him in.” And Candrasekhara looks outside and says, “Theres no one there except a poor Muslim guy.” And Lord Caitanya was like “Yep, let him in.” And then they were so happy to see each other they hugged super tight but Sanatan Goswami felt super embarrassed but Lord Caitanya didn’t mind. So then Sanatan Goswami got all shaved up and accepted some torn clothes from Tapan Misra which made Lord Caitanya happy, and he gave up the fancy blanket that I mentioned earlier which made Lord Caitanya even more happy. And then he decided to become a beggar and that made Lord Caitanya super happy. So then Lord Caitanya revealed a lot of very deep philosophy to Sanatan Goswami and Sanatan Goswami tried to get Lord Caitanya to admit that He is Krishna but Lord Caitanya didn’t fall for it. Lord Caitanya instructed Sanatan Goswami to find all the places in Vrindavan that Krishna performed His pastimes, because when Krishna left, they all became hidden. And he was also instructed to write books about bhakti yoga, establish temples of Krishna in Vrindavan and to write a book about proper Vaisnava behavior. More devotees need to read that book. Seriously.

So the Sri-Sri Radha-Madanmohan Mandir is actually the first temple erected in Vrindavan, which was erected by Sanatana Goswami. And it is said that for anyone who is sincere in devotional service, they must first approach Krishna in His Madanmohan form, who is very merciful. Im a knucklehead, so this is good news for me. Its wonderful when Krishna creates coincidences in life, isn’t it? Its His sense of humor, I think that’s how I know when He’s got His hand in it.

Imagine how wonderful it was to see this beautiful temple twice during my weeklong stay in Vrindavan! The first time I went was with my husband and his father and brother while we went on Vrindavan Parikrama (advice: wear comfy shoes…seriously…don’t get humble about this) and the second time I went was with my family and husband and my father-in-law on Janamastmi. My Dad got yelled at by the pujari because he was holding a video camera and that is a no-no in all temples in India. But the way the temple is built, you don’t go inside the temple. You just climb a long set of stairs and the Deities are there in all Their shining mercy so he didn’t realize that we’d get to the Deities so soon and that They would be all out in the open like that. Not exactly out in the open, but you know, not inside the building.

I used to wonder why people aren’t allowed to take pictures or videotape inside the temples. I thought that maybe it was superstition. But standing in front of Sri-Sri Radha-Madanmohan in Vrindavan. I realized that this is an experience that shouldn’t be captured in a picture but in your heart. Visiting these temples are supposed to give you a deep spiritual experience, if you’re so focused on taking pictures you miss the whole thing. Or maybe cameras steal your soul, I dunno.

Yoga of Ecology, Bhakta Chris, USA: Warning, Your Cell Phone May Be Hazardous To Your Health

Click here to read the full article from GQ Earlier this winter, I met an investment banker who was diagnosed with a brain tumor five years ago. He's a managing director at a top Wall Street firm, and I was put in touch with him through a colleague who knew I was writing a story about the potential dangers of cell-phone radiation. He agreed to talk with me only if his name wasn't used, so I'll call him Jim. He explained that the tumor was located just behind his right ear and was not immediately fatal—the five-year survival rate is about 70 percent. He was 35 years old at the time of his diagnosis and immediately suspected it was the result of his intense cell-phone usage. "Not for nothing," he said, "but in investment banking we've been using cell phones since 1992, back when they were the Gordon-Gekko-on-the-beach kind of phone." When Jim asked his neurosurgeon, who was on the staff of a major medical center in Manhattan, about the possibility of a cell-phone-induced tumor, the doctor responded that in fact he was seeing more and more of such cases—young, relatively healthy businessmen who had long used their phones obsessively. He said he believed the industry had discredited studies showing there is a risk from cell phones. "I got a sense that he was pissed off," Jim told me. A handful of Jim's colleagues had already died from brain cancer; the more reports he encountered of young finance guys developing tumors, the more certain he felt that it wasn't a coincidence. "I knew four or five people just at my firm who got tumors," Jim says. "Each time, people ask the question. I hear it in the hallways."

It's hard to talk about the dangers of cell-phone radiation without sounding like a conspiracy theorist. This is especially true in the United States, where non-industry-funded studies are rare, where legislation protecting the wireless industry from legal challenges has long been in place, and where our lives have been so thoroughly integrated with wireless technology that to suggest it might be a problem—maybe, eventually, a very big public-health problem—is like saying our shoes might be killing us.
