    Hare Krishna is the popular name for the International Society of Krishna Consciousness, which is a new religious movement based on Hinduism. It was established in America in 1965-6, in New York City by A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Prabhupada, guru/spiritual master, moved to San Francisco in 1967, and the movement spread quickly, plus gained further publicity and financial support through the interest of the Beatle George Harrison. This vast and fast diffusion of Hare Krishna can be due to the visible difference of their prayer and daily ritual, and their distinction to Hinduism.…

    The question of condition, or problem, mainly focuses on what is wrong with the world and your surroundings or with yourself. In the Krishna and Hinduism world view, the problem is the illusion, or Maya, that people tend to build about themselves and what surrounds them. Maya is when people see themselves as something separate instead of the common Hindu belief that all things are connected. Maya brings ignorance, attachment, and reincarnation into the lives of people. People start thinking that they are the most important thing around and do not think about the harm that they may bring to others and mainly their own souls. They start betraying and killing for simple desires instead of for ones own good. By being this ignorant, the karma of a human being just begins to keep on piling up, like it is mentioned in the Gita, "Your own karma, born of your own nature, will drive you to do even that which you do not wish to do, because of your delusion" (18:60 p.60). Being caught up in this delusion and all the surrounding bad karma that floats around leads to being stuck in the endless cycle of reincarnation and having no enlightenment in the person's life because the Lord "whirls them [the creatures] round upon the wheel of Maya" (Gita 18:60 p.60). If one is locked into reincarnation, it keeps him or her from having or achieving peace, the biggest problem that a human being can have in their lifetime.…

    Yoga is an exercise practiced for heath and relaxation having to do with breathing control while adopting specific body positions. Some conclusions have been pieced together about the history of yoga since the exact origin is uncertain. The first concrete evidence of yoga’s existence are some stones which have pictures on them of people doing various poses that resemble today’s yoga. These stones are thought to have been used around 3000 B.C. But even though there is not physical evidence of yoga before this, some scholars believe that its origin was before the stones were created. Since Stone Age Shamanism and yoga have similar characteristics, the scholars believe this is when yoga…

    Lord Krishna speaks not as Krishna the being, but as the Super Soul or Paramaatman, the Consciousness that is untainted. Every one of us for that matter is the same as the Absolute Soul. The individual Consciousness is like the air inside a pot; whereas the Universal Consciousness is like the all pervading air. The air that is inside the pot takes the shape of the pot. However it is not different from the air out side. Similarly the Soul inside a being is the same as the Universal Soul. But the Soul inside a being that we call as Jeevaatman is not able to shine with its true effulgence due to ignorance of the beings who associate their Soul that is themselves with their body, mind and ego etc. They do not realize that they are the Soul but…

    Yoga is a system of techniques that can be used for a number of goals, from simply managing stress better, learning to relax, and increasing limberness all the way to becoming more self-aware and acquiring the deepest knowledge of one’s own self. The core of Yoga’s philosophy is that everything is supplied from within the individual. Thus, there is no dependence on an external figure, either in the sense of a person or god figure, or a religious organization.…
