Facebook LIVE initiation today with ISKCON Barcelona at 11am EST 

“The scriptures do not describe the two-initiation system. Therefore, it is a detail of bhakti-yoga, not a basic principle. Thus, there is no final truth on the matter because the details vary. The basic point is that a devotee must accept and follow an authentic guru. The rest are details. Of course, because I work within Prabhupada's mission, ISKCON, I follow her procedures.“ #prabhupada #iskcon #krishnawest #hdg #hdgoswami

Tribal vs Philosophical Monotheism. Unless I know where I come from, how can I know the purpose of my existence? #hdg #hdgoswami #lifespurpose #prabhupada #bhaktiyoga

The soul is undoubtedly responsible for its decisions and actions. Krishna clearly explains in Bg 13.21 that we are responsible for our own suffering and happiness. We put on the layers and so removing the layers and purifying ourselves is exactly the same process with different words. The soul gets the false ego, and therefore each soul is entirely responsible for it. #hdg #hdgoswami #karma #shastra #vedas #prabhupada

There are two levels of justice: divine and human. It’s true that ultimately we receive our due. But individual souls cannot take the law into their own hands. So we should treat all creatures kindly, and pray for their ultimate liberation in Krishna consciousness.

Lecture on SB 7.9.12 -- Mayapur, February 19, 1976: So Kṛṣṇa wants this variety. So you all are devotees. You, the central point is to love Kṛṣṇa and offer Him service, but that service may be of variety. Variety. You cannot claim that because you are serving Kṛṣṇa in a type, and therefore, if somebody is serving in a different way—must be approved by the authority... You cannot criticize him. Varieties. Variety is the mother of enjoyment. The same vegetable, the same ghee, the same salt, same spices, but there are varieties of preparations. That is required. We Vaiṣṇava, we want varieties. Bahūnmukhi-sevā. How... The central point is how... The Vṛndāvana-Kṛṣṇa is the central point. The cowherd boys, they are satisfying Kṛṣṇa by going in the forest, playing with Him, mock-fighting with Him. That is also variety. - Srila Prabhupada
