"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

"May cows stay in front of me; may cows stay behind me; may cows stay on both sides of me. May I always reside in the midst of cows."

The Waves of Activity

BY: CAITANYA DAS

Mar 29, MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (SUN) —

The waves of activity
Falling on a soul
Endangered and entangleing
The trees fruits its later goal
Recorded and played back
Without knowledge darkness prevails
Trancendental technologies
Directs the karmic mail
The postman always delivers
Never misses a trick
Human life is given
The candle burns its wick
There is never a time
That it will be too late
To square up to and face
A timely destined fate

Worship of Lord Narasimha in
Maharastra and Goa,
Part 4

BY: SUN STAFF

Mar 29, CANADA (SUN) — A serial presentation of West Indian temples dedicated to the worship of Lord Nrsimhadeva.

Today we are visiting the Sri Jwala Nrsimha temple at Kole Narasimhapur, in the Walva tahlak, Sangli district of Maharashtra. Situated on the banks of the holy Krishna River, this is the abode of an amazingly beautiful swayambhu Deity of the Lord, said to have self-manifested some 7,500 years ago in the presence of Sage Parashar (Vyas Muni's father), who was in deep meditation.

The Bhagavata Principle

The Inconceivable Nature of Bhāgavatam

According to all the revealed scriptures, the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is inconceivable, beyond mundane understanding. Its meaning cannot be understood either by scholarship or penance. One who is not a devotee of Kṛṣṇa, no matter how great a scholar he may be, will never understand Śrīmad Bhāgavatam. (Cb. Madhya 22.13-14)

Multidimensional Space Time Existence

BY: CAITANYA DAS

Mar 27, MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (SUN) — A sincere student should not neglect the discussion of such conclusions, considering them controversial, for such discussions strengthen the mind. Thus one's mind becomes attached to Śrī Kṛṣṇa. (CC Adi Lila 2.117)

"False devotees, lacking the conclusion of transcendental knowledge, think that artificially shedding tears will deliver them. Similarly, other false devotees think that studying books of the previous ācāryas is unadvisable, like studying dry empiric philosophies. But Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī, following the previous ācāryas,has inculcated the conclusions of the scriptures in the six theses called the Ṣaṭ-sandarbhas.

THE SECOND JEWEL – BHAGAVAT-TATTVA

Bhagavatam is the Crown Jewel of all Revealed Scriptures

Completely rejecting all religious principles that are materially motivated, Bhagavata-Purana propounds the highest truth, which is understandable by those devotees who are fully pure in heart. The highest truth is reality distinguished from illusion for the welfare of all. Such truth uproots the threefold miseries. This beautiful Bhagavatam, compiled by the great sage Vyasa in the maturity of his spiritual realization, is sufficient in itself for God-realization. What is the need for any other scripture? As soon as one attentively and submissively hears the message of Bhagavatam, by this culture of knowledge, the Supreme Lord is established within his heart. (Bhag. 1.1.2)

Real Bridge Preaching
or A Bridge That Was
Never Built?

BY: MAYESVARA DASA

Mar 25, IRELAND (SUN) — The following is a response to Caitanya das's article, Real Bridge Preaching.

After nearly fifty years since Srila Prabhupada's initial instruction to 'carefully study the details of the fifth canto and make a working model of the universe', most members of ISKCON are unfortunately no closer to understanding that 'the Earth' is a gigantic circular plane (as the Puranas describe), and not a globe-shaped planet floating in space (as Western cosmology describes). The reason why members of the society are not conscious of, or convinced of the actual reality of the Vedic Earth-circle, is largely due to the presentation of 'Vedic cosmology' that began with Sadaputa dasa and later with Danavir Goswami.

Svarga-loka is described in many ways throughout sastra. Sometime passages extol the glories of the degree of sense gratification that is available there, while other statements explain that residing there is simply another kind of hellish condition. In the Sri Brhad-Bhagavatamrta, Srila Sanatana Goswami explains some of the different levels of the svargas:
