Hare Krsna
We celebrated Gaura Purnima 2016 at Radha Krsna kunja  by first going for Hari nama Sankirtan for about an hour and half.
Then we went to the nearby ashram of Kanhaiya and Noble prabhus for our full program of arotik, kirtan, class from Teachings of Lord Caitanya,  then a lively discussion followed by abhisek, then prasadam.

And did I forget to mention Srila Prabhupada in his full size murti also showed up?   And new Radha Krsna murtis
also showed up. Srila Prabhupada went with me and Radha Krsna stayed with Kanhaiya. Everybody was happy.
The devotees couldn’t stop looking at Srila Prabhupada and Radha Krsna…They are so beautiful..

Hari nama sankirtan ki Jaya !!!

Biogenesis and the Birth of Modern Science
By Narasimha das
The ancient Greeks, specifically the renowned philosopher Aristotle (384 B.C – 322 B.C.), believed that living things were spontaneously generated from non-living matter. Aristotle was a naturalist who loved to observe animals and nature while taking long walks through the country.  He noticed that ponds were full of various species, such as fish, frogs and tiny swimming insects. Later, in the summer months, many of these ponds would dry up and appear to become lifeless mud sinks or totally dry beds. But when the rains came, the same dry beds would fill up again with aquatic life. He wondered how all this life became regenerated. After pondering this puzzle for a long while, he finally concluded that earth itself had the power to generate life spontaneously with water and air under certain conditions. Observing the life cycles of insects on land, he came to similar conclusions: that rotting meat, animal fur and other non-living matter had the potency to generate various forms life under certain conditions.
