MILK IN INDIA, is not just a drink, it is an elixir. For almost every Indian — rich or poor — the idea of a daily glass of milk holds a potent and emotional charge. It speaks of parental devotion, well-being and health. This faith in the power of milk is well-grounded: it is the primary nutrient for the young and the old. Nearly 63 percent of animal protein in the Indian diet comes from dairy products. For vegetarians, there is simply no alternative. India, though being the largest producer of milk, is known for the quantity of cows rather than the high yield and quality of them. Thus the project, named ‘Rashritya Gokul Mission’, aims to promote locally bred cows as they are better suited for the Indian climate and are even heat resistant. Thus by switching to purely locally bred cows over cross-bred, it aims to increase the output of milk. Read more ›
Salem is a city and a municipal corporation in Salem district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Glorification of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is performed in the parampara system; that is, it is conveyed from spiritual master to disciple. Such glorification is relished by those no longer interested in the false, temporary glorification of this cosmic manifestation. Descriptions of the Lord are the right medicine for the conditioned soul undergoing repeated birth and death. Therefore, who will cease hearing such glorification of the Lord except a butcher or one who is killing his own self? SB 10.1.4 Read more ›
Haryana Cabinet, which met under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today, approved the proposal to allot six acres of land belonging to Kurukshetra Development Board to ISKCON.
Earlier, it was decided that six acres of land of HIRMI situated in village Raogarh, tehsil Thanesar will be transferred to Kurukshetra Development Board free of cost and thereafter it would be transferred by Kurukshetra Development Board to ISKCON at collector rate. However, ISKCON would hand over the land earlier allotted at Jyotisar to Kurukshetra Development Board. As the HIRMI has transferred the said land free of cost to Kurukshetra Development Board, now the land would be allotted to ISKCON for a lease period of 99 years at a rate of Rs 38 lakh per acre.

Hare Krishna. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
For the first time in a long time, I feel I don’t have mind peace. I live in Valparaíso Chile, and in April of this year there was a giant fire in the city, where 5000 houses were burn, among them was mine. It was a horrible experience. This was the first time I stopped chanting for some days, because every thing we had to do. I’ve have been chanting for 7 or 8 years.
I’m not mad at Krishna in anyway, I know it’s just the material energy working as it’s supposed to do. But besides I can feel that way, my family doesn’t, and that’s why I am so troubled. In my house my dad also had his work source, a not so small serigraphy studio. So in one day my family had no money and nowhere to sleep. Plus, we rescue 2 of our cats, but I lost my beloved one in the fire.
It is very difficult see my family like this, I do all I can but the money I make from my work is not enough. This problem has me overthinking, my rounds are not the same, I can’t really focus. I feel like I would do anything for not thinking in that horrible day, but I can’t.
I wish you could give me some advice. If someone passed through something similar, please let me know what you did. Any kind words will help.
Thank you. Bolo Hari. Read more ›

Oh, how glorious are they whose tongues are chanting Your holy name! Even if born in the families of dog-eaters, such persons are worshipable. Persons who chant the holy name of Your Lordship must have executed all kinds of austerities and fire sacrifices and achieved all the good manners of the Aryans. To be chanting the holy name of Your Lordship, they must have bathed at holy places of pilgrimage, studied the Vedas and fulfilled everything required. SB 3.33.7 Read more ›
