9-11-10: I love the Butter Thief

By : 
Bhakta Mark; Iowa Park, Texas

Dear Bhakti-lata, Hare Krsna!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All praise to IPM!
Please accept my humble respects and obeisances.

You asked about the Krsna book, what is my favorite pastime up to now. I really like the “butter thief.” In fact, it is one of the pastimes that bring tears welling up in my eyes. I know that for those who do not “get it”, that the idea of a person relating to God as a friend, parent, or lover is appalling. Some would even see it as blasphemous! I actually feel badly for these blind folks. God can be so much more than a “father”, (a Santa Claus), though Father is accurate as well. No, I understood perfectly how a person could

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.

Applying Krishna in my Life:

By : 
Richard Sharp, Menard IL

I am learning much from Bhagavad Gita As It Is, Arjuna and I have much in common and many of the same characteristics. I bear the witness to the truth and divinity of Bhagavad Gita and I am constantly chanting and applying the ways of Krishna to my life.

Chant 16 Rounds & follow 4 Regulative Principles

By : 
Thomas Daigle, Aiea, HI

I have learned from the Bhagavad Gita that I must always chant 16 rounds and follow the four regulative principles of freedom and study Srila Prabhupada’s books and associate with His devotees. I should serve Srila Prabhupada, improve my service attitude and preach to whoever will listen.

Illusion got cleared by reading Bhagavad Gita

By : 
Rhodney Smith, Lancaster CA

In Bhagavad Gita As It Is verse 4.31 it is stated that existence in the material world is due to multiple reactions to our sinful lives. Ignorance is the cause of sinful life and sinful life is the cause of ones dragging into material existence. From Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad Gita, I understand that this materialistic society which is made to look like it’s new or modernize on futuristic way of a life is really demonic.

Bhagavad-Gitra makes mind be my best friend

By : 
John Bastany, Frackville, PA

In reading Bhagavad Gita it is obvious that purpose of life is to serve Krishna. In Bhagavad Gita verse 6.6 it is stated that “One who has conquered the mind, the mind is best of friend, but one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy”. Most religion regards the mind as intelligently evil, which seems silly to me. This verse reminds me to always direct my mind for good and not just float through this life.

Hope of getting out of darkness

By : 
Robert Mitchell, Wala Wala, WA

My favorite verses are Bg 2.17, 7.5 and 7.7. In the purport of verse 7.7, Srila Prabhupada states that: I know that Supreme Personality of Godhead who is transcendental to all material concepts of darkness, only he who knows Him can transcend the bonds of birth and death.

Can’t get enough of Krishna and Srila Prabhupada

By : 
John Rodda, New Boston TX

After reading Science of Self Realization, I was hooked reading Srila Prabhupada’s books. I have been requesting Srila Prabhupada’s books ever since. Reading Srila Prabhupada’s book are like an appetite that grows when you feed it, can’t get enough of Krishna and Srila Prabhupada. My favorite verses of Bhagavad Gita are 9.26, 9.27, 9.29, 9.30, 9.34 and 18.66.

SSR gave me love and devotion to understand Bhagavad Gita

By : 
Kevin Brown, Reidsville GA

H. G. Chandra Sekhar (ACBSP) gave me a 1st copy of the Bhagavad Gita, and thus by his mercy I began to learn Bhagavad Gita from him. From my constantly studying Bhagavad Gita, I have learned that the false identification of material life is due to our being ignorant of our real life, our ultimate relationship with the Lord.

Falling in Love with 1st Chapter of Gita

By : 
Fahad Mogual, New Boston, TX

The first I knew of Bhagavad Gita As It Is was from word of mouth and then from the quotes from books and magazines. When Bhakta Bill sent me a copy of Bhagavad Gita, I fell in love with the first chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.
