Many years ago a great Krishna Bhakti teacher, Bhakti Tirtha Swami, penned the following 4 principles of community building:

1. Treat everyone you encounter as if the success or failure of your spiritual life depends on the quality of your interactions with them.

2. Thin...

Imagine we were rich with love. We had storage after storage rooms of love. And then imagine that we were one of those rare rich people that wanted to give it away generously. And we did. We went outside, knocked on doors, and said here, take it. They thought - what did...

As I marvel at the different languages I hear when I travel, as I feel awe flying at 30,000ft in the air, as I appreciate the ease of communication across the world, I am similarly moved by a statement I came across this morning.

It’s in connection with th...

Time I Am

“Time I am” echoes in the air

as we breathe into the end of another year

We can fool ourselves that we are in control

       This morning I watched the sunrise and marveled. What a blessing to see it and experience awe. It should be a daily tonic - to stand and soak it in, this moment of majestic movement. One could call it living yoga, feeling deeply connected to the source of light,...

I sit with my japa meditation in Autumn

and the mantra arrives softly like leaves

falling to the ground. Each one making

a journey down. Each mantra landing

in my head and heart.

As I listen to the Name I too become

softer, the mind shedding cares like

And...

We are about to begin a journey into the month of Kartika (Oct 13th to Nov. 11th), a month that can sweeten and deepen our relationship with Krishna if we choose to take advantage of it. 

My suggestion for this month is to ‘travel light’ so we can be more available and p...
