(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Nama Tattva Lecture, part 3, Japa Workshop, Helsinki 2011) Life is short and we don’t want to miss the boat, also… So, Lord Caitanya was not just in the mood of a psychotherapist, and it’s not that it says in Caitanya Cartitamrita: … and then Lord Caitanya went up and held [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Stockholm, June 2011) I was in the Himalayas in a place called Mcleod Ganj. Mcleod Ganj was the residence of the Dharamshala. Yes I was there and you had the Tibetan temple. There were many people looking at the temple and praying. A little bit down from the mountain there was a [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Stockholm, June 2011) Srila Prabhupada didn’t care. He didn’t care about statistics. He was ready to go anywhere and everywhere! Of course, it’s true that when Prabhupada visited Mexico, that there was a special response, because the Mexicans came to the program in large numbers, and they realised that Prabhupada was a [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Stockholm, June 2011) Devotional service can change anything. It doesn’t matter since it can capture the impious. The impious can also engage in devotional service, and we see how much of an expert Jayananda was at that: “Excuse me. I‘m just doing some work……could you for a moment hold this plank, while [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Stockholm, June 2011) I remember the story of how Srila Prabhupada went to Scotland in Glasgow. They made a very nice arrangement and hired out the theatre. It was a nice theatre with balconies on the side and in the centre. It was just packed. Everywhere there were people, there were even [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Stockholm, June 2011) Sometimes it is said that in the initial stages of faith of when there is the initial phase – that we are travelling but the journey goes uphill. But we are appreciating the association of the devotees and we are with the devotees, but the path is still going [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Stockholm, June 2011) There are different types of benefits one can get. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura in his own anubhasya – commentary on the Caitanya-caritamrta explains, that there is: ‘Karma-unmukhī sukṛti’. There is ‘mokṣa-unmukhī sukṛti’ and, ‘ bhakty-unmukhī sukṛti’ (C.c.Madhya 22.45) He said: “There are pious activities for which you will get [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) Only a proud man thinks that he can approach the Supreme Lord directly. A humble person understands: “Who am I? Contaminated as I am with all the vices of the world – lust, greed, anger and envy. All these qualities are in me. Who am I to go before the [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) We are used to whatever we have – to always be a little bit empty, and therefore we always have an open eye to see if there is anything more we can get, to fill the vacuum that is in our heart. This is just a normal state of consciousness. [...]

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) We saw how easily Bhisma Dev gave up the royal throne, just because of that fisherman! That ruthless, jealous, cold blooded, bargaining fisherman who wanted his son on the throne. Bhisma Dev said: “Okay, no problem”. It wasn’t even like: “Well, you know……….well this is very painful, what you are [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) Bhisma Dev was deep in his wisdom. He deeply understood the nature of the material world. Therefore Bhisma Dev was not attached. He was not attached to royal opulence. Bhisma Dev would say things like: “I have been purchased by the wealth of Duryodhana”. That was not a fact. Others [...]
About a month ago at this extraordinary blogsite there was a link to the short video of the fired-up kirtan by Kadamba Kanana Swami in Melbourne’s Urban Yoga Club, October 2011. This time we invite you to check out the event in full, the 41 minute long footage of the skyrocking performance by Kadamba Kanana [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) In Vrindavan we had a Prabhupada’s disciple who was the sankirtan leader. He was older and was taking care of the sankirtan party, because it was a big temple with so many buses. He would meet with the sankirtan devotees in the book room, where the books. In the book [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) We find that sometimes philosophers are bringing up the point that: “How can there be a God? Who is the creator of the material world?” And they speak out against the designed argument that there is an intelligent design behind this world! For example, a philosopher like Yeung would speak [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) Understanding that we don’t even want to go back to Godhead. It’s like one day we said: “I don’t know if I really want to go back to Godhead. I mean I’m afraid to go back to Godhead. I’ll miss my mother, my aunty and everybody else. And then I’ll [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) The desire to enjoy the material world or the need of wanting to get out of this material world, is the same thing…..it’s still considered selfish. ‘Bhukti-mukti-siddhi-kāmī, sakali ‘aśānta.’ The sense enjoyer, the karmi or ‘mukti’ – the one who looks for liberation. ….or the ‘siddhi’ – the yogi who [...]
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011) When we are looking at a child we say: “Oh nice innocent child!” No….the child is carrying with it the experiences from last life. They’re there….the previous life is there. We cannot remember, but they are present in the sub-consciousness. I also find very interesting is that the Srimad Bhagavatam [...]
