"My long desired scheme of a Krsna Conscious daily newspaper is being implemented. Please do this work very nicely. It will be a very great step in the history of ISKCON movement."
~ Srila Prabhupada, Letter to Satsvarupa 1971


"Here in this world there are thousands of newspapers and magazines reporting the stale, repetitious happenings of this limited space. So for reporting the news of the unlimited spiritual realm, concerning the eternal, ever-fresh Supreme Personality of Godhead, we could publish a newspaper at every second, what to speak of daily."
~ Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura



"According to social conventions, it is said that one can speak the truth only when it is palatable to others. But that is not truthfulness. The truth should be spoken in such a straight and forward way, so that others will understand actually what the facts are. If a man is a thief and if people are warned that he is a thief that is truth. Although sometimes the truth is unpalatable, one should not refrain from speaking it. Truthfulness demands that the facts be presented as they are for the benefit of others. That is the definition of truth."
~ Bhagavad-Gita As It Is. Ch 10:4

BY: SUN STAFF

Sep 01, CANADA (SUN) — Srila Prabhupada's Philosophy Discussion with Shyamasundara dasa on Charles Darwin, in ten parts.

Syamasundara: If I accept your knowledge, how can I theorize that there were higher forms of life millions of years ago if I have never found any evidence and I have searched...

Prabhupada: This is the evidence. This is the evidence. You have to see through the evidence, because in the (indistinct) there are so many species of life, say 8,400,000, they are all existing now. They are all existing now. Therefore why should I conclude that millions of years they did not exist?

While attending San Francisco Rathayatra on August 24th, a devotee approached me and asked if I had seen the bag full of books he left on the grass.

Lalitastakam

BY: SUN STAFF

Aug 30, CANADA (SUN) — Lalitastakam by Srila Rupa Goswami, in honour of Lalita Sasti, the Appearance day of Sri Lalita devi.

radha-mukunda pada-sambhava-gharma-bindu-
nirmajchanopakarani-krta deha-laksam
uttugga-sauhrda-vizesa-vazat pragalbham
devim gunaih sulalitam lalitam namami

I offer pranama unto the haughty Sri Lalita-devi who is charmingly endowed with many beautiful, sweet qualities (sulalita). She has natural expertise in all arts (lalita), thus her seva self-manifests. She wipes away the glittering drops of perspiration which appear upon the lotus feet of Sri Radha and Madhava when They meet; and she is perpetually immersed in the most elevated mellow of sauhrda-rasa, or undivided absorption in fulfilling the heart's desire of her intimate friend Srimati Radhika.

Darwin's Evolution:
"It is simply theory" - Part Four

BY: SUN STAFF

Aug 30, CANADA (SUN) — Srila Prabhupada's Philosophy Discussion with Shyamasundara dasa on Charles Darwin, in ten parts.

Bali-mardana: Lord Brahma, the most complex... From the Vedic information we find that the most complex living entity was first, and from him, he created all the variations. So from the most complex the most simple was evolved. Then if you have the wrong information, you could look at it and say it was the opposite, that from the most simple the most complex evolved. The sequence is there, and if you observe it in the wrong way, you may conclude it's going in the opposite direction.
