Appearance day of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabbu..

Chaitanya-Maha-Prabhu

Today is a very special day in Krishna Consciousness the appearance day of Lord Caitanya Mahabraphu.

May that Lord who is known as the son of Srimati Sacidevi be transcendentally situated in the innermost chambers of your heart. Resplendent with the radiance of molten gold, He has appeared in the age of Kali by his cause less mercy to bestow what no incarnation ever offered before.

The most sublime and radiant spiritual knowledge of the mellow taste of his service.

Reflections

The importance of a spiritual practice…

20200303_110840I was thinking today about just how important my spiritual practice is for me.

I can quite easily get bogged down In trying to find solutions to situations that lead to more frustration and angst.

Trying to desperately find answers and manage circumstances. The answer comes in letting go of trying to control.

For me, my spiritual practice is where I feel at home and at peace. That doesn’t mean that my life is always smooth and without suffering but it means that I have a place within myself to come “home” to, even when I might abandon myself.

I have been chanting for a few years now and this has very tangible benefits for me. I witness and feel the space in conversations and behaviours.

Herein lies Freedom.

If I spend time every morning with the God of my understanding the day tends to go better.

I’m wondering how you “start” your day and how this impacts you in positive ways?
