Questions & Answers with Snow College Students

Annually 40 or so students from Snow College motor up to the Sunday Feast at the Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, as part of a course on Eastern Philosophy. These are some of the questions they had for Caru Das, and his answers.

The Higher Taste

Maybe you need to be more disciplined in choosing your friends, in choosing your thought life (less negative). Maybe you need to be more disciplined in choosing your words, in choosing how you spend your money, in how you spend your time. Any areas where we are not disciplined, we will not grow. Don’t let any […]

How To Make Great Choices

Without admitting that we can’t do it ourselves, we can’t make great decisions, because we don’t have the capacity, the intellect, the vision, like Krishna does. Krishna is the Alpha and Omega. He created everything. He’s past, present, and future. He’s within the heart of every living being. He’s within the atom. Until we admit […]

A Divine Perspective

Like with Arjuna, Krishna is going to put promises in your heart that don’t make sense. There’s no way you can defeats those enemies, no way you can turn the situation around, no way you can get out of debt. How can your miracle happen? It’s not going to be in your own strength, your […]

Disconnect From Discord

You have to be careful who you take advice from. You Have to be careful who you let influence you. Are they healthy, productive? Do they have good judgment, clear vision. Do they have your best interests at heart? OR are they discontent, bitter, living from a place of offense? Do they have unsavory motives. […]

Seasons of our Lives

We are eternal. Our nature is to find a permanent niche, lasting security. That is not to be found in this material world. Like looking for water in a desert. We are “sat’ (permanent beings) in an “asat” (impermanent) world. We get comfortable with family, co-workers, & even if it’s not ideal, fulfilling, at least […]

Choosing How to Live

If you’re going to be happy, you have to be happy On PURPOSE, because there will be critics, betrayals, delays, all kinds of things that can cause you to live sour. You have to put your foot down and say, “That’s it. I’m not other people steal my joy. I’m not letting what’s not working […]

Bounce Back Mentality

We are eternal. Our nature is to find a permanent niche, lasting security. That is not to be found in this material world. It’s like looking for water in a desert. We are “sat’ (permanent living beings) in an “asat” (impermanent) world. We get comfortable with family, co-workers, & even though it’s not ideal, it’s […]

Be A Person of Excellence

But, Caru, at my company everybody slacks off when the boss is gone. Everybody compromises at my school. Not everybody takes care of their yard in my neighborhood. No, here’s the Key. You are NOT EVERYBODY! You’re a cut above. You are called to be excellent. Krishna wants you to set the highest standard. You […]

Living a “No Excuses” Life

Stop making excuses. Quit dwelling on disappointments, the unfairness & hurt that’s been inflicted on you. The worst handicaps are those we place on ourselves. Tony Melendez had a dream to play guitar. But he had been born w/out arms. Could have said, “it’s unfair” but his attitude was, ” I may not have any […]

Moving Forward

Bhagavad Gita Says: “One who does good is never overcome by evil.” In the Bible we read, “There may may be weeping in the night, but joy comes in the morning” Nothing that happens to you is a surprise to Krishna. He knows the past, from the present, to the future. He has the restoration, […]

Master Your Moods

Strive for stability, consistency, being the same day in & day out. We all have emotions, feelings, but we need to learn to manage them. Would you agree with me that too many people today live by how they feel. It’s like living on a roller coaster, up when circumstances are good, and down when […]

Uncomfortable Situations

We all face situations that are uncomfortable. We’re not getting our way, dealing w a person hard to get along with, late for an appointment & caught in traffic. As much as we don’t like it, Krishna allows uncomfortable situations. When we are put under pressure, it shows what we are made of.

Igniting Your Enthusiasm

Today, we’d like to talk to you about igniting your enthusiasm. The word enthusiasm comes from Theia which is a Greek word for God. It’s one of the reasons why we chant, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. Because it fills us up with a […]

Speak to Your Mountains

You prayed, hoped, believed. Need to do more – You need to SPEAK to the mountains. Say, “Mountain Be removed.” You are Not asking, not begging, not saying ‘pretty please.’ You are COMMANDING that fear, that sickness to STOP impeding your march and the march of your loved ones back home back to godhead. I’ve […]

Shifting to High Gear

Know I’m here to put you on notice today. There’s been a shift in gears. Krishna will give you breaks that you didn’t deserve. He’ll bring the right people across your path. You’ll see opportunity like you’ve never seen it before. He’ll take you further faster. Get those two words down in your spirit. It […]

The Desire to Improve

Each and everyone of us is driven by a desire to constantly improve. That is a desire that Krishna put into our hearts. The Lord does not want us to get stuck, stagnate, and sour. We are created to be constantly moving ahead, rising to new levels, taking new ground. Throughout our lives, Krishna reveals […]

Staying Thirsty

It is said “KRISHNA SATISFIES the THIRSTY SOUL with good things”. If you’re going to see GOOD THINGS: healing, breakthroughs, favor, you have to STAY THIRSTY. KEEP BELIEVING for your dreams, KEEP EXPECTING new doors to open, KEEP DECLARING favor over your children, KEEP SPEAKING promises over your health. Krishna didn’t put a dream in […]
