• What do you talk about?

    Do you talk about what’s wrong with people or do you talk about what you need to improve in yourself?

  • 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, it’s likely your lifestyle has something to do with it.

  • Devotees are saintly

    “Even if a devotee commits the most abominable actions, he is to be considered saintly because he is properly situated.” As you will say, “To err is human,” so in the neophyte stage we may always expect some discrepancies are there. Kindly see the things in this light and forgive their small mistakes. The big thing is they have given their life, everything to Krishna — that is never a mistake. (Srila Prabhupada, Letter April 30, 1973)

  • Honor

    Seeking honor is the main enemy of bhakti.

  • Guilt

    Too much guilt can be debilitating. Regret leads to rectification whereas too much guilt normally causes people to beat themselves up, which in turn  keeps them down.

About Mahatma Prabhu


Mahatma Prabhu was born in Los Angeles, California in 1950. In 1969, at the age of 19, he first met Srila Prabhupada through The Bhagavad Gita As It Is, and then later that year met Srila Prabhupada personally in Los Angeles. In January of 1970 he moved into the temple in Berkeley, California and shortly after received first and second initiation.

He went on to do a variety of services including book distribution, sankirtan leader, temple president, college preaching, congregational development, and various educational projects.
