Pleased with the New Site

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Shri Guru Parampara! Pranams! I am quite pleased with this new Forums site at It is a perfect combination of speed, ease and features and promotes quick and easy participation among devotees. Thanks so much all of you for your kind participation. There is no difference between the physical association and internet association with devotees because in both cases it is based on the discussion and sharing of Nitaai Gaura Krishna Naam Kirtana and Katha by text, voice and visually (video). The personal touch and reciprocation between devotees is also performed on the internet again by text, voice and video. And all this from the very comfort of our homes or wherever we are located.

In the times of Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupada and Shrila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the long distance communication between them and the devotees was done by text letters. We are not fortunate to have their physical presence now on this planet but we can surely share and discuss their teachings in an even more effective manner via the internet with not only text but also via audio and video. Thus, the internet is a gift by Lord Nityaananda for the devotees. He inspired some souls to make the internet in the first place. Thus, we should be grateful to the Lord and use the internet very wisely.

Ofcourse, Maya is always ready to catch and possess us and diminish our spiritual advancement at every moment is our lives irrespective of whatever we are doing. So like everything else, internet is also open to potential misuse and may effect us adversely. But Internet is so irresistible and indispensible nowadays for many people since it is practically impossible to live without an email address. Thus, it is up to us on how to use it expertly in the Lord's service to know and understand Him.

Please share your thoughts about this. :)

Daaso'smi, Swami Gaurangapada.

Thank you. It is my experience that internet does help in inspiring the devotees in their Naam Bhajana. If it was an ineffective medium, it would not be able to do this.
