Save the Lord

The existence of the Shree Krishna Temple in Sion, Mumbai seems to be under uncertainty with ploys being deployed by authorities to destroy it. Popularly known as the Shiv Temple, it was constructed a century ago and is of a great astha to the Hindus with anecdotal stories and myths relating to it. Off lately a group of local inhabitants have been posing a threat to obliterate the temple to fulfill their selfish needs and materialistic pleasures.

“In line with the changing times and battered temple condition, it was essential to renovate and maintain the upkeep of this place” says a source close to the temple. He further adds “It was Shree Ramanugrah Trust who undertook the temple repairs and also donated huge sums of money to restore the temple to a good condition. It was all good, when one of the members started misappropriation of the trust’s funds for personal benefits”.

It is alleged that there have been constant attempts by one of the trust members in close alliance with a Construction house to demolish the temple for serving their own selfish motive. They have deputed goons who threaten the devotees coming to the temple on daily basis and disturb the peace and create communal harmony through threats and assaults to the security guards posted by the trust in the temple. Activities like drinking liquor inside the temple premise and playing cards are being conducted.

Adding to the woes is the unexpected response of the police officials. Despite regular attempts on the part of temple administration to lodge complaints the police do not accept any complaints and threatens not to file any complaints in future otherwise they will take strict action against the devotees and temple administration people.

Believe in the powerful light of Unity!

The complete nature of God is a divine mystery in that humans cannot fully comprehend the nature of God. We are too limited in our capacity to comprehend. God Almighty requires that we accept certain things on Faith. Someday, once we have passed from this life, we will fully comprehend. Until then, we must have faith.

We humans can never understand what the almighty has planned for us as we are too small for such an act, but what we as humans can surely do is, have complete faith in him.

In a bid to fulfill his selfish needs sometimes man forgets what he is doing and starts looking for materialistic pleasure. He even goes to the extent of not realizing that he is ignoring his creator in the process. Such is the case with Shree Krishna Temple and we are fighting for it. Will you support us?

One man cannot achieve this, it takes an effort of hundreds, thousands, millions etc. We do not ask you for help, all we are trying to do is spread awareness. If we raise our voice against it, it will be for our own self, because no matter how less we care, we know what is the importance of a holy place, which is a heritage itself.

Jai Shree Krishna

The main teachings of Bhagavad Gita

* Be compassionate towards all living beings, thus love all living beings. This means don’t be envious or hateful of others. Be friendly to others, be nice to others, be kind to others, be generous to others, be merciful to others, be charitable to the needy. Don’t cheat others, don’t lie, don’t steal, don’t hurt others, don’t drink, don’t take drugs, don’t eat meat, don’t buy leather.

* This body you (the soul) are residing in, is temporary, but the real you, the soul, is eternal. Just as we change worn out clothes, jobs, houses, cars, partners, and so on. One day you will be forced to change your body too. So don’t get too attached to this temporary body and material life. And just as a manufacturing company designs it’s products today for production in the future. Similarly you are designing your next body with the actions you are taking now. So if you think let me enjoy now and forget about the future. Thus if you think your next life is not worth thinking about now. Then your next life will be that of nothing. You will take birth among the 8 million species of living beings below that of human beings (animal and plant kingdoms).

* There is only one person who without any doubt declared himself and proved that he was the Supreme Personality of God, Lord Krishna. Always think of him, worship him, and serve him. In this age of Kali, which means the age of ignorance, there will be so many godless people who will try to make you godless too. Surrender onto the only proven God, Lord Krishna. Do you know anyone who can lift a mountain, expand himself into thousands of forms, show the whole Universe in his mouth, put out a forest fire by swallowing it, kill all the demonic and save people in this very life. Lord Krishna did all this.

* In this age of Kali, the age of ignorance and irreligious. There will be many imposters who will claim to be God or prophet of God and cheat innocent people. These imposters can only cheat people, they cannot exhibit the potency of God. Only Lord Krishna proved himself to be the one true God.

The Story of the Birth of Lord Krishna

The birth of Krishna is in itself a transcendental phenomenon that generates awe among the Hindus and overwhelms one and all with its supra mundane happenings.

Mother Earth, unable to bear the burden of sins committed by evil kings and rulers, appealed to Brahma, the Creator for help. Brahma prayed to the Supreme Lord Vishnu, who assured him that he would soon be born on earth to annihilate tyrannical forces.

One such evil force was Kamsa, the ruler of Mathura (in northern India) and his people were utterly terrified of him. On the day Kamsa’s sister Devaki was married off to Vasudeva, an akashvani or voice from the sky was heard prophesying that Devaki’s 8th son would be the destroyer of Kamsa. The frightened Kamsa immediately unsheathed his sword to kill his sister but Vasudeva intervened and implored Kamsa to spare his bride, and promised to hand over every new born child to him. Kamsa relented but imprisoned both Devaki and her husband Vasudeva.

When Devaki gave birth to her first child, Kamsa came to the prison cell and slaughtered the newborn. In this way, he killed the first six sons of Devaki. Even before her 8th child was born, Devaki and Vasudeva started lamenting its fate and theirs. Then suddenly Lord Vishnu appeared before them and said he himself was coming to rescue them and the people of Mathura. He asked Vasudeva to carry him to the house of his friend, the cowherd chief Nanda in Gokula right after his birth, where Nanda’s wife Yashoda had given birth to a daughter.

He was to exchange his boy and bring Yashoda’s baby daughter back to the prison. Vishnu assured them that “nothing shall bar your path”.

At midnight on ashtami, the divine baby was born in Kamsa’s prison. Remembering the divine instructions, Vasudeva clasped the child to his bosom and started for Gokula, but found that his legs were in chains. He jerked his legs and was unfettered! The massive iron-barred doors unlocked and opened up.
While crossing river Yamuna, Vasudeva held his baby high over his head. The rain fell in torrents and the river was in spate. But the water made way for Vasudeva and miraculously a five-mouthed snake followed him from behind and provided shelter over the baby.

When Vasudeva reached Gokula, he found the door of Nanda’s house open. He exchanged the babies and hurried back to the prison of Kamsa with the baby girl. Early in the morning, all the people at Gokula rejoiced the birth of Nanda’s beautiful male child. Vasudeva came back to Mathura and as he entered, the doors of the prison closed themselves.

When Kamsa came to know about the birth, he rushed inside the prison and tried to kill the baby. But this time it skipped from his hand and reaching the sky. She was transformed into the goddess Yogamaya, who told Kamsa: “O foolish! What will you get by killing me? Your nemesis is already born somewhere else.”

In his youth Krishna killed Kamsa along with all his cruel associates, liberated his parents from prison, and reinstated Ugrasen as the King of Mathura.

|| Bhagavad Gita || – Final Chapter

In Krishna’s final chapter of the Bhagavad Gita there are a number of places where Vaishnava commentators consider the book could have ended. After the first of his possible endings, Krishna wants to make sure Arjuna—and we readers—have understood his hope for all souls. Thus he summarizes his ultimate instruction, as the powerful conclusion.

The idea that his book—it is “his” book after all!—of perennial wisdom has a conclusion is often surprising to the casual reader looking for generic spiritual wisdom to add to their lives or personal agenda. We conditioned souls have a very ego-centric view of the world and any information or knowledge we come into contact with. Sometimes people like the Gita because they think it recommends many paths and one can choose one that appeals to them according to their personal criterion.

Krishna Tales: Lord Krishna and the Lapwing’s Nest

It was the battle of Kurukshetra. The white conch shells were about to sound, the elephants to march forward, and the attack of the archers to commence. The moment was brief and terrible. Banners were flying, and the charioteers preparing for the advance.

Suddenly a little lapwing, who had built her nest in the turf of a hillock in the midst of the battlefield, drew the attention of the Lord Krishna by her cries of anxiety and distress for her young. “Poor little mother!” he said tenderly, “let this be thy protection!” And, lifting a great elephant-bell that had fallen near, he placed it over the lapwing’s nest.

And so, through the eighteen days of raging battle that followed, a lapwing and her nestlings were kept in safety in their nest, by the mercy of the lord, even in the midst of the raging field of Kurukshetra.
