• Knowledge can be problematic

    More problematic than ignorance is the illusion that you know or understand something that you don’t.

  • The Holy Name Lifestyle

    Chanting is the process by which desire matures into an intense hankering for Krsna. If that hankering is not developing, the first place to look is at your chanting. And if your chanting is to be blamed, itโ€™s likely your lifestyle has something to do with it.

  • Installing Love

    Tech Support: Yes, how can I help you?

    Customer: Well, after much consideration, I’ve decided to install Love. Can you guide me through the process?

    Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

    Customer: Well, I’m not very technical, but I think I’m ready. What do I do first?

    Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

    Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

    Tech Support: What programs are running?

    Customer: Let’s see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.

    Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ?

    Customer: I don’t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

    Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

    Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

    Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

    Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, “Error – Program not run on external components.” What should I do?

    Tech Support: Don’t worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

    Customer: So, what should I do?

    Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

    Customer: Okay, done.

    Tech Support: Now, copy them to the “My Heart” directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

    Customer: Got it.. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

    Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. Will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.

    Customer: Thank you, God.

    God/Tech Support: You’re Welcome, Anytime.

  • Desire

    If you want to be Krsna consciousness, nothing will stop you. If you don’t want to be Krsna conscious, nothing can help you.

  • Can you do more?

    When you review the service you have done, ask, “Could I have done more?” When you note what the “more” is, do it.
