Meet Devotees at KrishnaConnect.com!

There is a new Krishna Conscious social media site where you can meet and talk with like minded devotees. It is called KrishnaConnect.com.

KrishnaConnect.com enables members to post to their timelines and to make friends with other devotees and associate with devotees and talk Krsihna Katha with each other.

To advance in Krishna consciousness it is very essential to associate with devotees. These days we often find ourselves in situations where we have very little devotee association. So KrishnaConnect.com is an attempt to enable devotees to associate with each other and talk about Srila Prabhupada and Krishna wherever they find themselves.

So please go to:

http://krishnaconnect.com

and sign up and become an active member of the Krishna Connect community!

    Please accept my humble obeisances.
    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    There are a few spammers appearing on Krishna Connect timeline and they post totally materialistic pictures in their ads. Please remove these things from Krishna Connect when you get time from more important services to Srila Prabhupada.

    • Hare Krishna Aman

      Can you do this Prabhu, remove the spammers from krishnaconnect.com?

      That would be a great service.

      I can adjust your account so you have the privileges to do this.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

        Yes Prabhu. I will do this service. Please let me know how to do and adjust the things from your side that are needed.

        • Hare Krishna Aman

          I did adjust but somehow it is not working so I think just let me know if you notice any more spam postings and I will delete.

            Thank you very much. I will let you know if spams appear on Krishna Connect again.

    Hare Krishna Prabhuji!
    Can other social networks like twitter and facebook also be used to spread Krishna Consciousness effectively by a devotee like me who is in neophyte stage?

    • NO. It is just maya. At least that is my opinion. I have no social media accounts, etc, and consider it a total waste of time.

      The whole thing is about sense gratification and even if you inject some Krishna consciousness they will just click and be back in maya again in one second…

      So social media is just a huge pile of sense gratification. I don’t think anyone has ever had any success actually making anyone a pure devotee on social media.

      Actually really Krishna consciousness is a personal thing. It can be spread directly from person to person. So you need to actually meet real physical people and talk to them about Krishna face to face…

        Thank you very much Prabhuji! I’m going to delete all my social media accounts permanently now. Only Krishna Connect will remain now and Krishna Connect is a beautiful place!
        Hari bol!

          Please accept my humble obeisances.
          I have a big dilemma now. Whether to leave WhatsApp or not? I have deleted all my social media accounts except WhatsApp. Now some of the devotees including me have created a WhatsApp group also in which we post Krishna Consciousness messages only. What do you say about WhatsApp and this group of Krishna Connect devotees Prabhu? I’m the most fallen soul trying to begin Krishna Consciousness. Please say something on this because only you can help me in this situation.

          • Hare Krishna Aman

            It is up to you, you have to decide yourself. I don’t know. You have to work out what is favorable to your advancement in Krishna consciousness and what is not.

            So if it is just devotees talking about Krishna it is OK of course.

            But realistically I think you can not really do Krishna katha, sadhu sanga, over the internet, what’s app or anything. Really Krishna consciousness is a personal thing and you need to have personal, physical association. So that is why I suggest you go out and distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books in your local area and you will meet some people who are interested in Krishna consciousness in your local area and you can preach to them, organize meetings, have kirtans, etc, that would be nice…

            Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    I am not able to connect to this group.I think that verification by admin is not yet completed.Please help me to connect with this.I started reading srimad bhagavatam and following regulative principles.

  4. Madan Mohan says:

    I proposed to have a challenge between book distributors w.r.t the number of books they sold in krishnaconnect.com . However I was very disappointed by the poor response. Is there any way that krishnaconnect.com be used as a forum to help new budding book distributors and also to have periodic book distribution challenges, like how it used to be in the 1970s?

    • Hare Krishna Madan Mohan

      The success of the Hare Krishna movement in the 1970s was based on purity. All the devotees were chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day, they were all getting out of bed before 4:00 AM and attending Mangal Aroti, they were reading Srila Prabhupada’s books daily very enthusiastically, they were living in the association of devotees, they were only eating Krishna prasadam, they had a bona fide spiritual master: His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, etc., etc

      So this situation has to be recreated to recreate the book distribution mood of the 1970s. It can not be done on the internet. Krishna consciousness is a personal thing. You have to go out and distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books yourself, become a pure devotee yourself, and by your spiritual potency convince the people you meet while distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books to also become pure devotees.

      You can’t do it on the internet. You have to go out and meet the people face-to-face and convince them to read Prabhupada’s books.

      Don’t worry so much what others are doing. Do it yourself.

    Hare Krishna!

    • Hare Krishna Aman

      Yes. Please do this, post the replies to KrishnaConnect and try to preach there as much as possible, KrishnaConnect needs to be developed more and more so please try to do this and if you have any ideas for improving it more please let me know.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

        Thank you very much! I will do as you have said. Yes…KrishnaConnect must be developed so that anyone who comes in contact with it he becomes a devotee and it also must be made very popular!

    Hare Krishna Prabhuji.
    Krishnaconnect is down it seems. It is the place where I often take shelter when feeling distressed. I hope the issues are fixed up soon.

    • Hare Krishna Aman

      Sorry,it is fixed now, and also sorry for the long delay in responding to these messages. I have been very busy the last few weeks..

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

      • Aman says:

        It is all right Prabhuji
        It is your mercy that you are replying to all the comments and given us KrishnaConnect. I wait for these replies very eagerly. The first thing I do after waking up is to see the recent comments section on krishna.org whether it has been updated or not. In waiting for you replies I remember Krishna, so it is only good. Reading your replies is very pleasing. A year ago it was materialistic websites like twitter and facebook now it is Krishna.org and krishnaconnect. I can’t thank you enough for this, I can only pray to Lord Krishna that He gives you all the protection and love for Himself.

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
