Sharing the fruits

Tonight Bada Haridas and myself are leaving India for Europe. After a few days we’ll travel to South Africa for the Durban Ratha Yatra, and then onto Russia and Ukraine for a 3-week preaching tour. Time to share the fruits of our pilgrimages to India’s holy places with others!

Preaching in India

Srila Prabhupada wanted his disciples to preach Krishna Consciousness in India.

Big Scale Preaching

This festival travelling program is a modern day pastime of Lord Caitanya because it’s the result of the desire of all the previous acaryas and of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself.

Preach Throughout The Whole World

I have benefited so much from my stay here in Sri Vrindavan Dhama. But today I realised that to obtain the love of God I aspire for I must leave Vrindavan soon and preach again in the west, for Srila Prabhupada writes: “Maya’s is all these newspapers. Preach that throughout the whole world. Sitting alone [...]

Prime Time

Yesterday I was invited to speak on national television. The popular talk show aired at prime time throughout Macedonia. The host was very gracious and we discussed the basics of Krsna conscious philosophy. Most important, I went into great deal about the importance of chanting Hare Krsna. As the program ended I repeated the mantra [...]

Every Day

Every day we do the same thing; get up, shower, have a morning program and go on samkirtan. It’s been going on like that for 40 years, to be exact. But we never become bored, tired or satiated because it’s devotional service to the Lord and always new and fresh. And it always will be! [...]

The Devil Surrenders

Yesterday after arriving in Skopje, Macedonia we drove several hundred kilometers southwest to Ohrid on the Albanian border. It is said that Ohrid is the, ‘meanest town in Macedonia.’ Local tradition says the Devil created Ohrid. The saying goes that when someone challenged that the town is so beautiful the Devil smiled and replied, “Yes, [...]

Goodbye Bulgaria ( We’ll Be Back )

Our final program in Bulgaria was the biggest and the best. When it finished I made the decision to bring my entire Festival of India program here next year. Plans are already being made. Who wants to come? We’ll drown the wonderful people of this country in an ocean of bliss! Srila Prabhupada, I’m ready [...]

Into The Heart Of Bulgaria

Yesterday we journeyed eastwards from Sofia to the town of Sliven for a program in a classic Bulgarian house, several hundred years old. Archeologists have found evidence of settlements in and around Sliven dating back over 6,000 years. In modern times Sliven has become one of the most significant cultural centres in Bulgaria. At our [...]

Krsna’s Mercy In Bulgaria

I first came to Bulgaria in 1989. It was communist at the time and one of the most draconian places I had ever visited. Much has changed since then. A deeply Christian county, with a population of over 7 million people, Bulgaria is now part of the European Union and in it’s free and democratic [...]
