The Science of Knowing Who You Are

Atma refers to the body, the mind as well as the soul. Atma can also refer to the Supreme Soul, or Paramatma. Paramatma is an expansion of Krishna that lives in the hearts of all living entities, giving knowledge, memory and forgetfulness to the individual soul as they desire and deserve, according to their karma.

I remember being 15 years old, lying on the rocks in a forest at night and staring at the stars, wondering. “Who am I? Where have I come from? Have I always existed or did I start existing at some point? What is this ‘I’, a combination of my body and mind, or something more? Am I a spiritual being or is it just my imagination? What does spiritual mean?”

Let me share with you a little bit of what I have discovered about my self on my journey on the Krishna path.

Playing mantra melodies with kantele

In October I visited my family in Finland and took this video clip of my youngest sister Kaisu in her room. She is sitting in front of the altar she made for her Gaura-Nitai Deities that you can also see in the video – They are right next to my Deities (on the right) that travelled with me to Finland and back.

Kaisu is really good with kantele, an ancient Finnish instrument, and she plays here some ancient Indian ragas, or melodies. The first melody is typically used for chanting the prayers to the spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada, and the following raga is for singing the Hare Krishna mantra. Enjoy!

I Cannot Understand This World

This discussion took place in 1935 and is ever so valid.

Question: I cannot understand this world.

Answer by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura: It is camp life. This world is not our original abode. It is meant for certain purposes. After that we are to proceed to our original home. This world is not a desirable place. It is not good to be enticed to stay here for a long time, forgetting our original abode. We stay there with Godhead. We are the eternal servants of Godhead.

Saturday night we went to a punk rock show in Worcester, Massachusetts. Actually we didn’t go into the show although Prahlada used to listen to the Suicidal Tendencies and DRI a lot, but we stayed in front of the Palladium and talked to the fans and showed them the books as they were going in or came out to smoke cigarettes or cool down from the moshing.
