Krishna is not a random God. He is a precise God. He has lined up solutions years before the problem arose. The Spanish Fork temple opened to the public on June 23, 2001. That was a time and date set by the Lord before He even created the universe. It is not an ordinary time. […]
We all have opportunities to make people look bad. There are rumors, things we don’t know for sure are true, but it’s tempting to repeat them anyway. Not that we’re a bad person, we’re just telling WHAT WE HEARD. It’s easy to justify cause we’re just passing on what we’ve heard. Or maybe we do […]
IT’S easy to get stuck into a rut in life. Lot of people are going to go into the New Year year coasting, on auto pilot, expecting the same things – same problems, same struggles, same income, same job, same level of joy. I’d like to speak faith into you tonight, hopefully, to ignite something […]
But when we go around stressed out, worried, thinking it’s never going to change, that’s stopping the sun. It’s causing more clouds to roll in, more defeat, more mediocrity. You have to start letting some sunshine into your life. It doesn’t start with KRISHNA. It starts with us. The scripture puts it this way, when […]
“Krishna never faulted anyone for believing big, asking for your dreams, doing on His behalf what seems impossible. Thats’ what Krishna calls Great Faith. You’re showing Krishna that you believe how powerful He is. Maya would love for you to live with comfortable faith, faith in a box, faith for what you seen in the […]
A life lived always on mountaintops, all sunshine, everything going our way, is never going to grow us up. We’ll never reach the fullness of our destiny without the dark places, the valleys in life. Life in this material world is a mixture of (sun drenched) Mountains & (dark, gloomy) Valleys Without the dark there’s […]
Learning to be thankful, whether to God or to other people, is the best vaccination against taking good fortune for granted.

I don”t know about you, but there certainly have been moments in my journey of faith when I have asked myself, “How in the world did I get myself in this mess?” “What wrong turn did I make?” “Where am I supposed to be going?” The attitude we choose in those moments when we are […]
The Lord says, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If you ABIDE in me, you will bear much fruit, for APART from me you can do nothing”. Imagine how important these words are. “THIS IS HOW you’re going to be successful. THIS IS HOW you’re going to overcome challenges. THIS IS HOW you’ll […]
KRISHNA is about to reverse some things in your life, things that look like they’ll never change, “You’ll never own your own business, never get into management, never write that book, never start that ministry”. No, get ready for a reversal. Things are going to SUDDENLY shift in your favor, Narada is going to show […]
All you have to do is: take that step TOWARD him. NO MORE hiding, NO MORE living condemned, NO MORE feeling unworthy. GO TO God with boldness, and receive this mercy. HARE KRISHNA. Krishna is calling your name today, saying “Come out of hiding. Come to My house. I want to GLADLY EMBRACE you”. Will […]
Faith in Reverse Says. “I’ll never get the breaks.” That’s a statement of faith. Faith goes to work & makes it happen. Why not take the same energy and flip it. “My life is in your hands, Lord. You are guiding & directing my steps. I’m not expecting defeat, failure. I’m expecting victory, to go […]

Large Group of 50-60 kids, and parents, all of whom home school. Warning: there are some very young children making noise intermittently. They spent three hours at the temple with kirtan, animals, yoga, and lunch.
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.
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 […]
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 […]
Successful people are so focused on their goals, they don’t have time to look around and see what everybody else is doing. Run your race, and when someone passes you by, don’t be intimidated. Be inspired. If Krishna did it for them, He can do it for you. If you can’t celebrate people who are […]
