[reposted from 04-02-2014] I had the good fortune Sunday to spend time with a devotee friend and neighbor, along with her two visiting daughters—one out of college and looking for work, the other, soon to finish high school and already accepted at a college of her choice. I...

    Lord Nrisimhadeva’s divine appearance day celebration is certainly one of my favorite occasions, and I am sure I am not alone in this. Our Christian friends are fond of quoting the Bible that “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” [John 3.16] and we could also say that God so loved his pure devotee in the world that he personally descended to give him all protection. To this day devotees feel...

    (reposted from 4-14-16) I saw the grim reaper in my dream, feeling no fear, I was curious to see him. Coming near, he pointed his bony, pale hand toward me. His other palm raised in blessing pose where it was written, the number 65—my age! Then with both hands, he pointed to the sky, and shrugged. His sickle and dark robes then transformed. He showed his true self, as a blissful, radiant sage. Smiling enchantingly, he said, “People dress me with their fear, thinking I have come to destroy them...
