Do Not Kill Cows

Do Not Kill Cows. By Sankarshan Das

The cow’s our mother giving us milk
After first mother no longer can.
So how we can kill and eat her?
This I do not understand.

If your compassion I can somehow arouse,
I’ll convince you that we should not kill cows.

She gives us ice cream, yogurt and more
Without asking even for a penny.
So how we can then kill and eat her?
What an atrocious pity!

So if your compassion I can somehow arouse,
I’ll convince you that we should not kill cows.

The karma we get for eating a cow
Is to be killed and eaten too.
So to get ourselves free from being slaughtered
This is what we now have to do.

If your compassion I can somehow arouse,
I’ll convince you that we should not kill cows.

Yes, if your compassion I can somehow arouse,
I’ll convince you that we should not kill cows.

(Spoken). Take it seriously.

Hari Hari Viphale by Narottam Das Thakur (sung in English by Sankarshan Das Adhikari)

This is the English translation of the powerful Bengali bhakti bhajana “Hari Hari Viphale” by the great Vaisnava acharya, Srila Narottama Das Thakur

Although I’ve come to this human form
My Lord I’ve spent my life uselessly.
I did not care to serve Radha and Krishna
So I swallow poison knowingly, knowingly.

Hare Krishna mantra comes straight from Krishna Loka,
But with chanting I have no connection.
Day and night I’m burning in this dark world
Without working to make the correction, no correction.

Lord Krishna comes as Sachi’s Son,
Balarama descends as Nitai.
By chanting, the wretched have all been saved,
Including Jagai and Madhai.

Oh my dear Lord, O Son of King Nanda,
Together with Vrishabhanu’s daughter—
“I’ve got no shelter but Radha and Krishna,”
Humbly prays Narottama Das Thakur.

Although I’ve come to this human form
My Lord I’ve spent my life uselessly.
I did not care to serve Radha and Krishna
So I swallow poison knowingly.
I did not care to serve Radha and Krishna
So I swallow poison knowingly.

I’ve Spend My Life Uselessly by Narottama Das Thakur

Although I’ve come to this human form
My Lord, I’ve spent my life uselessly.
I did not care for Radha and Krishna
And so I swallow poison knowingly.

Hare Krishna mantra comes straight from Krishnaloka
But with chanting I have no connection.
Day and night I’m burning in this dark world
Without working to make the correction.

Lord Krishna comes as Saci’s son
Balarama descends as Nitai.
By chanting the wretched have all been saved
Including Jagai and Madhai.

Oh my Lord, Oh Son of King Nanda
Together with Vrishabhanu’s daughter.
I’ve got no shelter but Radha and Krishna
Humbly prays Narottam Das Thakur

Although I’ve come to this human form
My Lord, I’ve spent my life uselessly.

Kabe Habe Bolo Se Din Amar by Bhaktivinode Thakur

When, oh when will that day be mine?
When my offenses ceasing, taste for the name increasing, when in my heart will Your mercy shine? When, oh when will that day be mine?

Lower than a blade of grass, more tolerant than a tree, when will my mind attain this quality? Respectful to all, not expecting their honor, then shall I taste the name’s nectar sublime. When, oh when will that day be mine?

Great wealth or followers, feminine beauty, I won’t care for them or the comforts of my body. Birth after birth give me, O Lord Chaitanya, causeless devotion to Your feet divine. When, oh when will that day be mine?

When will I utter Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, with words choked up and shivering body? When will I be trembling all over, lose bodily color, tears pouring from my eyes? When, oh when will that day be mine?

When in Navadvipa along the Ganges bank, shouting “Gaura-Nityananda!” as a surrendered soul, dancing, chanting, running everywhere, when will I become half mad of mind? When, oh when will that day be mine?

When will Lord Nityananda show mercy upon me, and when will I reject the world of maya? Bestow unto me the shade of Your lotus feet, and let the right to preach the name be mine. When, oh when will that day be mine?

I will beg, borrow, or steal the nectar of the name. By the name’s effect I will feel paralyzed. O enjoyer of the nectar of the name, when will I touch Your lotus feet till the end of time? When, oh when will that day be mine?

When kindness to all beings will be appearing, with free heart forgetting my self-comforting, Bhaktivinoda in all humility prays, “Now I’ll set out to preach Your order sublime.” When, oh when will that day be mine?

Divine Sex Life

In other to be properly situated in Krishna consciousness householders must restrict their sex life to no more than once a month when they are trying to have a child. When they are not trying to have a child there should no be sex life.

That once a month sex is to be done five days after the woman’s menstrual cycle because she is most likely to conceive a child on that day. Also, both the husband and wife should chant at least 50 rounds of japa mala before having sex on that day and they should also have their Guru Maharaja’s blessings for trying to have a Krishna conscious child. Any sex life beyond this is illicit and must be avoided by those who are serious about getting out of the cycle of birth and death and going back to Godhead. Sex life executed according these principles is divine and will attract a great saint to take birth in the mother’s womb.

Sex Won’t Take You Back to Godhead (Famous Lecture) – Vrindavan, India – 1 April 2018

There is humongous misconception in ISKCON that one can become Krishna conscious while having unrestricted sex pleasure with one’s wife. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Sex desire must be completely given up in order to qualify oneself to go back to home, back to Godhead. This is why we have a regulative principle which totally forbids us from having sex except for once a month after the husband and wife both chant 50 rounds of japa if the couple are trying to have a child.

The Foolishness of Ignoring Impending Death – SB 5.18.3 – Vrindavan India – 26 March 2018

A good student always remembers that at the end of the semester he must take a final exam for each course that he is taking.  By remembering this he prepares himself well by dutifully studying, writing papers, and attending classes throughout the semester.

In a similar way a thoughtful, conscientious devotee of Krishna always remember that his Krishna consciousness will be tested at the time of death. Therefore he carefully and thoughtfully practices Krishna consciousness throughout his entire life so that when life’s final exam, i.e. death, comes he is fully prepared to pass the exam and go back to home, back to Godhead.

How to Make the Whole World Krishna Conscious Immediately – 25 March 2018 – Vrindavan

Here’s the verse and purport that we studied:

Srimad Bhagavatam 9.10.53:

Translation: When Lord Rāmacandra, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, was the King of this world, all bodily and mental suffering, disease, old age, bereavement, lamentation, distress, fear and fatigue were completely absent. There was even no death for those who did not want it.

PURPORT
All these facilities existed because of Lord Rāmacandra’s presence as the King of the entire world. A similar situation could be introduced immediately, even in this age called Kali, the worst of all ages. It is said, kali-kāle nāma-rūpe kṛṣṇa-avatāra: Kṛṣṇa descends in this Kali-yuga in the form of His holy name—Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Rāma. If we chant offenselessly, Rāma and Kṛṣṇa are still present in this age. The kingdom of Rāma was immensely popular and beneficial, and the spreading of this Hare Kṛṣṇa movement can immediately introduce a similar situation, even in this Kali-yuga.
