Temporary temple cat #10

This little guy, around 1 year old – sweet, affectionate, talkative, strong, well-behaved (knew where to take a leak and where not to) – turned up outside the temple one evening, crying. We found out he came from Hisingen but his owners didn't care about him. He put up at the temple for the night – took darshan from the Deities, honored a few plates of prasadam (spiritualized food, in this case some pumpkin-subji and rice), listened to Srila Prabhupada chanting Hare Krishna all night long, and got a Vaisnava cat name, Nrisimhadeva. The day after we took him to Djurskyddet, where they promised to find him a new home. The rumour is all around in Cat World: Go to Nimaihuset, good place, nice people, spiritual progress.

Contemplations on Guru-Tattva

by Patita Pavana das

Krishna consciousness is still quite young in the West. Only 50 years ago, Srila Prabhupada came and made it known around the world. That is just 2 generations, given a generation of 25 years. Therefore, there are still many misconceptions about the concept of Guru-Tattva and how it reveals itself in this world.

If you first consult the Bhagavad Gita, you can see that the original Guru or spiritual master is Krishna Himself. In one verse it is said that remembrance, knowledge and forgetting come from Him. That means then, that everything anyone in this world could know has its origin in Him. He is Bhagavan and Bhagavan is described in the Tattva-Sandharba by Jiva Goswami as Lord of all energies. He works through his energies, and the original energy from which every other emerges is Srimati Radharani.

Guru-Tattva is a work of Radharani, through which She reveals Krishna. Only through the will of Guru-Tattva can we know Him, otherwise not. As Srila Sridhar Maharaj said, "The finite cannot know the infinite, but the infinite would not be infinite if He could not make Himself understood by the finite." And if that understanding is going on, this revelation, then this transaction takes place through Guru-Tattva.

"No death of consciousness – just death of the body"

Material science in its avantgarde form quantum physics is making serious progress on what is called "The big problem of consciousness". (The spiritual understanding is that consciousness is the symptom of the soul, what we really are.) This article is particularly interesting since Sir Roger Penrose is a well respected, famous and prized professor emeritus at the Oxford University and the article was originally published at the British MSM newspaper The Express.


Consciousness and Quantum Mechanics

By Sean Martin

The possibility of life after death is one of the greatest mysteries of humanity, but now experts are claiming that there is no death of consciousness – just death of the body.

Do you like hot potatoes?

B.A Paramadvaiti Swami

If your answer is "yes" you should be very grateful to South America, because those potatoes were first cultivated in Peru. By the grace of the Infinite Seed Giver, there are thousands of varieties of delicious potatoes.

Prasadam distribution in Gårda Loppis fleamarket

Last Sunday it was time again for the twice-yearly fleamarket Loppis på Gårda, in the backyard of the temple, where we as usual distributed Prasadam – spiritualized food – to a bunch of hipsters, hippies, ravers, alternatives, and some just quite normal people too. The sun was shining, the DJs were working, the sellers were selling, the shoppers were shopping, and the devotees were distributing the mercy of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in the form of blessed dal and rice, some 80+ servings. A few pictures:

Natures Hidden Teachers

Yew (Taxus Baccata) 

"The Blessed Lord said: There is a banyan tree which has its roots upward and its branches down and whose leaves are the Vedic hymns. One who knows this tree is the knower of the Vedas." (Bhagavad Gita, 15:1)

Yews have held a fascination for me since a very young age. The very aura around this tree conjures the imagination and feelings of awe. Something of the infinite seems to reach out and touch you when standing under the boughs of a venerable and aged yew. It is this tree that sparked my lifelong love of trees.
