Is it correct to speak whatever we think in mind?

Posted on: 21/06/2022

Ms. Thrylokya asked: Swami, ancient people followed unity in thought, word & action. But now, we live in a civilized world where people show good manners although their intentions are different.

Posted on: 21/06/2022

[Ms. Thrylokya asked: Swami, could You please enlighten us about the greatness of Lord Subrahmanya and details about His birth? At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Thrylokya]

Did Sudama have any desire while sacrificing to Lord Krishna?

Posted on: 18/06/2022

Smt. Chhanda asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, while going through the discourse of Approach to God, I got the following two doubts. In one place it is written that when approaching Lord Krishna, Sudama was prepared to undergo the result of his sins and suffer in poverty and at the same time he also did the highest sacrifice in the form of ahandful of rice. In this way a devotee should not ask or even think about the removal of his difficulties by God. He should be prepared to undergo the results of his sins. He should offer Guru Dakshina (donation) to the human form of God to his level best. Then God will remove his difficulties. In another place it is written that Sudama went back home without begging anything from the Lord. Yet Sudama...
