(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 02 May 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Venu-gita Talk) In the material world, you need to make people responsible. Prabhupada followed that system where he appointed people to take care of and be responsible for something. He put people in charge of things and that created a lot of friction because there are many people [...]

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 7 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.41-42) Question: Maharaja, our services and chanting are all absolute because our ultimate aim is to please Krsna. So, why does it matter what proportion you do? Why couldn’t one just do service or just read if it is all absolute? Yeah, it is all absolute but it [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 March 2013, Cape Town, South Africa, Srimad Bhagavatam 8.12.7) One can take out insurance, there is no harm in that. As long as one is trying to keep the body alive then there are some measures to be taken, some calculation is required. We are not propagating that everyone should go [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 10 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.50) I have one more example about maya and in this case, maya is fishing and we are the fish. Fish have big eyes, as you know. So imagine, let’s get into fishing consciousness – we are swimming in the water and suddenly there’s this delicious [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 April 2013, Korsnas, Stockholm, Sweden, Srimad Bhagavatam 1.17.1) We see that the threshold for the human form of life is lowered in different yugas. In the satya yuga, to attain the human form of life, one has to be very qualified because in satya yuga human beings are very qualified. In the treta yuga, they [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 25 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany) Sometimes when reflecting on my life, there are a good number of years in Krsna consciousness and there was also a life before that, but in reflecting on my life then sometimes I think, “Well, I did not really learn anything from the scriptures. Actually everything I learned, I learned from [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 7 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.41-42) If we don’t get absorbed in the sankirtan spirit, we may still remain very self-centred because we are so fallen. If we’re self-centred then the desire for self-aggrandizement, for our own glories will remain, which is a subtle form of sex desire, pratiṣṭhā. So this pratiṣṭhā - the desire [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 10 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.50) Smaranam kirtanam kelih preksanam guhyam asanam (Srila Prabhupada Lecture, SB 6.1.11, 25 July 1971, NY). It is said that hearing about illicit sex, speaking about illicit sex, remembering illicit sex, looking, joking, sitting with a member of the opposite sex in a secluded place, or [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 7 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.41-42) We see that Srila Prabhupada based this movement on practical service and not on chanting the whole day, prāyeṇa deva munayaḥ sva-vimukti-kāmā maunaṁ caranti vijane na parārtha-niṣṭhāḥ, (Srimad Bhagavatam 7.9.44). And not only on practising for our own salvation, naitān vihāya kṛpaṇān vimumukṣa eko, (Srimad [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 10 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.50) In this material world, we are born with a vacuum within our heart – a big empty heart! When the heart is big and empty, then the bats of sinful desires fly around in the big cavities that are within our heart. One has to [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 April 2013, Korsnas, Stockholm, Srimad Bhagavatam 1.17.1) In one of the early Back to Godhead magazines, there was a cover with a butcher slaughtering an animal. And Prabhupada said, “Why did you put this? Why did you put this?” So the editor said, “Well, aren’t we against meat-eating?” Prabhupada said, “We are not against [...]

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 7 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.41-42) We went to Benapola, in Bangladesh, which is just on the border of India. It is actually very close to Mayapur. When we went to that place, in my mind I had prepared for a place dedicated to Haridasa Thakura – the place where he chanted [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 10 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.50) Meditation basically means to focus the mind. We have a mind and certainly we have to focus the mind on Krsna. So in that sense, we are meditating and part of our process is also meditation: śravaṇaṁ, kīrtanaṁ, smaraṇaṁ – hearing, chanting, remembering; smaraṇaṁ [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 April 2013, Korsnas, Stockholm, Srimad Bhagavatam 1.17.1) Although it is mentioned that harer nāma harer nāma, harer nāmaiva kevalam, kalau nāsty eva nāsty eva, nāsty eva gatir anyathā (CC Adi 7.76), that this chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra is the only way by which we can overcome the influence of [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 02 May 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Venu-gita Talk) Devotee: We hear continuously of how proud, lustful, greedy and envious we are. In addition to thanking Krsna for all the knocks in our life and in addition to chanting, is there anything else we can do to not be proud and lustful. Maharaja: I [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 10 May 2013, Simhachalam, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 9.6.50) In the Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu, there is an analogy of the ocean. It is said that devotees are compared to sharks – not because they are nasty to each other or something like that but the reason why devotees are compared to sharks is because first [...]
Written by Rukmini devi dasi The soft-hearted Simha The Bhagavatam describes how the mane of Lord Nrsimhadeva scattered the clouds. His glaring eyes stole the effulgence of the luminaries in the sky. His breathing agitated the oceans. At the sound of his roar, all the elephants in the world began to cry. However, when Lord [...]
Kadamba Kanana Maharaja and other famous kirtaniyas like Sacinandana Maharaja, Madhava Prabhu and Ojasvi Prabhu, will participate in a kirtan event in Ljubljana, Slovenia, this weekend (31 May – 2 June). It is to our good fortune that there will be a broadcast live on mayapur.tv The kirtan schedule for today is as follows: Kadamba [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 13 March 2013, Amsterdam, Srimad Bhagavatam 5.1.33) We should not over estimate the power of modern science. Although some maybe convinced that we have gone to the moon; that we are regularly sending space shuttles to Mars; and that the Hubble has all the answers, but all that is not so convincing [...]
