How I Came to Krsna

By : 
Bhakta Jason Matthews; Columbia, South Carolina

It was in 1973 when I first came into contact with Krsna’s pure devotees. I was five years old and traveling through the Frankfurt airport with my parents and older brother. In thinking back on the experience it’s really odd, in a way, that I remember it so clearly now, especially as it became covered by other experiences of conditional life and remained forgotten for some thirty-two years.

Finally, Peace of Mind

By : 
Bhakta Gordon, Salem OR

For so many years I was strung out on different chemicals thinking it was the way to cope with life and that it would bring me peace and joy. But I found out that it only gave me peace and happiness on a temporary level and the more I used the more I wanted. I was never satisfied. I was always looking for that quick thrill thinking I could find it I booze, sleeping around, partying, doing risky behavior or whatever else would be a turn-on. I was happy on the outside, but deep down inside my inner soul something was missing.

From the Bible, to the Qur’an, to Bhagavad-Gita

By : 
Bhakta Brad, Teague, Texas

“I would like to tell you how I came to Krsna. When I was sent to prison I began searching for my true original self and sought to find myself in the Bible and later in the Qur’an. I kept reading about other faiths as well and read some books on the history of Hinduism and wrote down some quotes from the Holy Scriptures. I loved those books.

No Longer Deceived

By : 
Bhakta Gerald, Graceville, Florida

“Although I was born in 1956, I was never anything more than remotely aware of Krsna. A long time ago, in a prison chapel, a Christian prisoner burst in with George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord” on cassette tape. The prisoner made his case against demonic lyrics in rock music as subliminal psychological manipulation, when he suddenly announced, “Aha! Listen to this!” and proceeded playing the tape so the background singers suddenly changed from “Hallelujah” to “Hare Krsna”. We had all loved that tune and sung along. We were all guilty of sin and going to burn in hell!

If you walk with Krishna, you will never experience anxiety.

I have received a nice study course on the Bhagavad-Gita and japa mala beads. I have been chanting Hare Krsna on rosary beads. I enjoy chanting and I chant every day. Chanting definitely connects me to the eternal source of enlightenment and bliss. This source is Krishna. Krishna is the supreme personality of Godhead.

Hungry to learn more

I do my best to understand Bhagavad Gita and every time I study the Gita it feels me up with self realization, it makes me hungry to learn more.
