(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 24 June 2013, Czech Summer Camp, Srimad Bhagavatam 8.2.33) In this verse, there is a description of the kala-sarpa, the black snake of time.

Unlimited beauty

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrindavan, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.16.34) So this merciful aspect of Krsna is very important. To be merciful says something about the state of the heart. So. we are speaking here about the nature of Krsna’s heart. We can become attracted to Krsna’s beauty. Stunned by his unlimited beauty, we just look […]

Fear and doubt

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 July 2013, Cape Town, South Africa, Spirit Matters Program) Question: Do you have any nice words to remind us not to have doubt whenever we have fear or doubt?

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 23 July 2013, Durban, South Africa, Evening lecture: A Journey of faith) I thought that I had escaped the Hare Krsna movement effectively until I met a girlfriend who had a dog named Krsna!

What really counts
→ KKS Blog

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 July 2013, Cape Town, South Africa, Spirit Matters Program) Even when we are so transcendental ourselves, we still have to take people’s feelings very serious, even if they are partially motivated by false ego – it doesn’t matter, just like a child. But when you are an adult, you see it different […]

Great faith

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrndavan, India, Student Talk) After Srila Prabhupada left Vrndavan, he tried to preach in the Western world.

Causeless mercy
→ KKS Blog

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrndavan, India, Lecture to the kirtan group) Krsna is so kind, he gives us the spiritual world. I often think about that. Krsna thought to himself: “Oh, there are those living beings who have turned away from me. Things are not complete without them. Let me do something for them. […]

Totally relaxed

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 4 May 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Free Lecture) When we see everything in relation to Krsna, then we can be very relaxed. “Okay, it’s Krsna’s external energy. I prefer Krsna’s internal energy, but this is also related to Krsna and can be used for Krsna.” Like you see in Prabhupada. He’s very relaxed. […]

A kirtan star

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrndavana, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.16.34) The nice thing about the 24-hour kirtan is that you guys are not alone. First of all, these days cameras are on your face and it is obvious that you are not alone! They (cameramen) block the views sometimes, don’t they? They sit there, in […]

Everything is mercy!
→ KKS Blog

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrndavana, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.16.34) In the tenth canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam, the word for mercy is prasad. Every time you read the word mercy, it means prasad. Of course, it is an advanced stage where everything becomes prasad. You have to be quite advanced to appreciate everything as prasad. We […]

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 23 July 2013, Durban, South Africa, First grain ceremony) Growing up in a family of devotees, it is mentioned in the scriptures, is someone who is finishing something from a previous life; one resumes devotional service!

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 3 May 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Srimad Bhagavatam 5.19.20) Devotee: I have also heard that there is something called jiva apradha (offense to another living entity). Is that a speculation?
