I’m rather tired of people arguing over my spiritual life here. It’s not only boring, it’s stupid because it’s not going to inspire me at all. It might work better if I could participate in discussion more, but I just don’t have the time. We’re expecting my wife to give birth to our fourth child [...]
Here is Krishna Priya in the evening. She’s been eating grass.
I remember back in my beginning with Bhagavad-gita As It Is, October 7, 1995. I was astonished that Krishna could make a man who was such a clear channel for Him as was Srila Prabhupada. I had not dreamed that such a man had walked the Earth. When I read more of his teachings, such [...]

Here’s something new. It’s still under construction, but anyone who wants can feel free to stop by. Just be aware that things may be added, removed, moved around, or renamed; so if you write anything, it may be a good idea to save it on your own computer too.
