Food and Poison Nataraja Dasa

There was a story.

One day one devotee Bhagavān Ācārya invited Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu to dine at his home. Thus he was preparing rice and various types of vegetables.
And devotee named Choṭa Haridāsa used to sing for Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Bhagavān Ācārya called him too to his home and spoke as follows: – “Please go to the sister of Śikhi Māhiti. In my name, ask her for a māna of white rice and bring it here.”

Śikhi Māhiti’s sister was named Mādhavī-devī. She was an elderly lady who always performed austerities. She was very advanced in devotional service.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu accepted her as having formerly been an associate of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. In the entire world, three and a half people were His intimate devotees – Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī, Rāmānanda Rāya and Śikhi Māhiti, and the half a person was Śikhi Māhiti’s sister (1). read more

They say – “Muslims kill us, Muslims attack us, muslims…”

And then I usually become angry.
Why? Why their position is, that “Muslims kill, attack and do whatever they like”?
For example – Why NO SIKHS ever write me such kind of blame game letters of “victims”? – “We are abused, we are persecuted, we wanna come…”

And then, when you look on their FB profiles of these “Hindu” men – what do you see there?
Cricket, bollywood, soft porn and thousand reposts of videos from Gaura mani Devi ji and all other ISKCON festivals with decorated girls in front…
And what happen in India at large? Indians are ashamed about their Vedic heritage, they strive after “western” standards, secularism, feminism, liberalism… read more
