The Science of AND

India is a Land of Harmony. And in this phrase “Land of Harmony”, the important word is ‘And’.
Indian culture is that of ‘And’ not ‘Or’.

A MUST-READ for all Youth (and Adults too).

Sri Swamiji’s Pandharpur Visit in January 2019

From Jan 7 to Jan 13, 2019, HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji visited Pandharpur kshetra, with a number of devotees, to perform a seven-day Mahamantra Nama Saptaham.

Words can barely be used to describe the experience of all those who were there at that time. Yet, for the benefit of all of us who were not fortunate enough to be there in person, a devotee has beautifully tried to give a picture of those seven unique days in Pandharpur.

Madhurageetham: Srimad Bhagavatam – 2

The 10th canto in Srimad Bhagavatam is known as “Ashrayam” or “refuge” for Lord Krishna’s devotees for it talks about the Lord’s incarnation and his sweet lilas on this Earth. Sri Swamiji has written beautiful kirtans on these various lilas of Lord Krishna. So, in this series we will relish those lilas of Lord Krishna through Sri Swamiji’s kirtans.

This beautiful song on Goddess Durga in raga Durga, extols her virtues and says how She is always there for Krishna’s devotees, and how she is worshiped by Krishna’s devotees.
