oḿ pūrṇam adaḥ pūrṇam idaḿ
pūrṇāt pūrṇam udacyate
pūrṇasya pūrṇam ādāya
oḿ — the Complete Whole; pūrṇam — perfectly complete; adaḥ — that; pūrṇam — perfectly complete; idam — this phenomenal world; pūrṇāt — from the all-perfect; pūrṇam — complete unit; udacyate — is produced; pūrṇasya — of the Complete Whole; pūrṇam — completely, all; ādāya — having been taken away; pūrṇam — the complete balance; eva — even; avaśiṣyate — is remaining.
The Personality of Godhead is perfect and complete, and because He is completely perfect, all emanations from Him, such as this phenomenal world, are perfectly equipped as complete wholes. Whatever is produced of the Complete Whole is also complete in itself. Because He is the Complete Whole, even though so many complete units emanate from Him, He remains the complete balance.
OM KESHAVAYA NAMAH!
Hello, I'm a monk! Long story short... the philosophy I discovered within ancient sanskrit texts answered most of the important questions in my heart & mind. Within weeks I moved into a temple/ashram and haven't since looked back!
I'm not 'religious', but let's have a look at the word: Re means 'again', as in repeat. Ligio is latin for CONNECT, it's where we get the word LIGAMENT. So the word religion in an objective sense refers to a process which RECONNECTS you with God.
Hare Krishna monks' main method of reconnecting is through sound vibration. Chanting mantras [man= mind; tra= release].
Two things give a mantra potency... empowerment by Source, and the intent or focus with which it is chanted. Pronunciation is important, but ultimately it should come from the heart.
The Hare Krishna mantra beseeches both the divine feminine & masculine aspects of Godhead. Hara refers to the energy of God, the Divine Mother or Goddess. Krishna is the energetic, masculine aspect, the Divine Father. Together, Hara & Krishna are One, yet simultaneously divided as lover & beloved, eternally. In sanskrit this is called acintya-bhedābheda-tattva, inconceivable simultaneous oneness and differentiation.
From the immeasurable love between the Divine Couple, Hara & Krishna, everything else comes into existence, for their relationship forms the archetype for everything and is the reservoir of all pleasure.
Upon chanting the Hare Krishna mantra one's identity as a spark of Godhead gradually re-awakens and one remembers their eternal nature as Their assistant, existing solely to bring Them happiness, and thus rediscovers ever deepening satisfaction in that relationship with Them.
"The soul is eternal. It is full of knowledge, and it is full of bliss. So that soul is always looking for the bliss that is its own nature. What is the bliss of the soul? What is the pleasure that the soul is always longing for? It is the pleasure of perfect, pure, eternal love. Within this world there is no greater pleasure than the pleasure of love. It is the nature of every soul to have unlimited, eternal enjoyment in that love that is reciprocated with God." -Radhanath Swami
This is my spiritual teacher's website: www.kkswami.com "Welcome to this site. It contains all kinds of information. Some things are written by me and others, such as the blog, by my friends and disciples. We would like it to make a contribution to the upliftment of the world, by offering spiritual information. It may be imperfectly composed, but such knowledge can penetrate the heart, because it is actually the truth and therefore it can change the lives of people. I am not a great personality, but I am the follower of great teachers and therefore you will find valuable information, that can change the world."
-Kadamba Kanana Swami

As described in Stephen Hawking’s book “The Grand Design”, the universe is a 13-dimensional space with four dimensions uncurled. As the fabric of space reconfigures those dimensions expand, then contract – causing this universe, and 10^500 others to manifest and unmanifest.

If there was a wooden plank with a hole in it floating somewhere on Earth's ocean and a turtle that surfaces once every 100 years to take a breath, and happens to perfectly put his nose through the hole in the plank of wood, similar is the rarity of taking birth as a human being. -Srila…READ MORE →

Bhagavad Gita purport 13.12
[The following is a lecture delivered by Sri Atmatattva Das, June 12, 1993 at the UFO Expo West, Los Angeles Airport Hyatt, California.]
The Vaimānika Śāstra (वैमानिक शास्त्र) is a highly detailed description of vimānas, and it is given great credence in a number of books and articles. The Indian ufologist Kanishk Nathan wrote that the Vaimānika Śāstra is an ancient Sanskrit text that "describes a technology that is not only far beyond the science of the times but is even way beyond the possible conceptual scientific imagination of an ancient Indian,… READ MORE →
