"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."
(HBV 16.252)

Spiritual Science Applied to the Question of the Earth's Shape and Location, Part 3

BY: MAYESVARA DASA

Jan 21, IRELAND (SUN) —

Introduction

Continuing this series on the Earth, we would like to address three fundamental issues regarding the question of the Earth in Vedic cosmology and what ramifications this has for the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.

(1) What is the size of the Earth in Srimad Bhagavatam?

(2) Why did Srila Prabhupada, the Founder Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, refer to the Earth as a globe?

V – RATIONALISM
Rene Descartes (1596-1650)

Syamasundara dasa: The fourth part of Cartesian methodology involves taking into account the most detailed points and making sure that nothing is omitted.

Who is Giridhari das?

BY: KRISHNA DASA

Jan 19, BRAZIL (SUN) — He is a member of GBC. To be more precise, he is GBC's Zonal Secretary in ISKCON Brazil (he's undergoing his trial period). He runs a yoga resort project called "Paraíso dos Pândavas" which is listed on ISKCON Brazil's website as an official ISKCON project. He runs a YouTube channel from which the texts below were transcribed. He's a Brahmin initiated disciple of Hridayananda dasa Goswami.

I won't even criticize him as I think it's unnecessary. It's so obvious he's preaching apa-siddhanta that I don't even think this needs to be explained. I assume the people reading this still haven't lost their sanity and are capable to tell a liberal approach to preaching from straightforward sahajiya deviations.

V – RATIONALISM
Rene Descartes (1596-1650)

Syamasundara dasa: Descartes claims that truth must be self-evident and innate, like the intuitive knowledge "I exist. "

Srila Prabhupada: This is innate knowledge: I exist now, I existed in the past, and I shall continue to exist in the future. This is also confirmed by Bhagavad-gita:

V – RATIONALISM
Rene Descartes (1596-1650)

Hayagriva dasa: In Meditations on First Philosophy, Descartes writes: "The power of forming a good judgement and of distinguishing the true from the false, which is called good sense or reason, is by nature equal in all men.... God has given to each of us some light with which to distinguish truth from error." Is he speaking of the Supersoul, or another form of intellection?

Jan 21, CANADA (SUN) — A serial presentation of India's artistic legacy in paintings, sculpture and temple architecture.

THE RAGAMALAS

Over the last few segments, we've been discussing the various schools of Ragamala painting, which include the Rajasthan/Rajput Ragamalas, the Pahari, Deccan and Mughal Ragamalas. The Rajput group has been described in some detail by Rashmi Condra, who authored an interesting comparative study looking at several examples of Raga Vasanta or 'Melody of Spring'. In particular, she compared 18th Century Kangra and Bundi style renditions of Vasant Raga, in which Lord Krsna is often featured either fluting, dancing, sporting with the gopis, or otherwise enjoying the season.

Jan 17, INDIA (SUN) —

"Either you fill up with transcendental message, or you fill up with rubbish nonsense. Two ways. So if you take care that your earholes are always filled up with the transcendental message of Krishna, so there is no scope for rubbish things to enter into it. So therefore our attempt should be twenty-four hours hearing."
