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!

    First of all I would like to thank my friend Sarnaduti Prabhu for giving you the details of problems on Krishna Connect. It would be very nice if Krishna Connect starts working very nicely. Now I would like to point out one problem- some of my posts which are only about Krishna Consciousness get deleted. I never post anything but Krishna Consciousness but some posts which I consider very important get deleted.

    Hope all the problems on Krishna Connect are solved soon.

    Haribol!

    • Hare Krishna Aman Prabhu

      I never delete any of your posts on Krishna Connect Prabhu. But I do not post all your comments on Krishna.org.

      Sometimes you write so many comments on Krishna.org and my time is limited and Krishna.org is not just for replying to Aman’s questions.

      So I am very inspired by so many questions. But I can not answer everything you post on Krishna.org. But I have never deleted any of your posts of KrishnaConnect.com and no one else also should be able to delete posts off KrishnaConnect.com. So I do not know what is going on in that regard.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    Here are a few more technical issues I have noticed at KrishnaConnect.com, which I just wanted to bring to your notice, and which you could consider (only you have some time):

    1) Posts are cut off after a specific number of characters in the mobile version of the website but show up fully in the desktop version (just like comments, which do not show up fully in the desktop version but work well in the mobile version).

    2) ‘Liking’ a photo sometimes creates a duplicate post of the photo, stating that the person has liked it. (I checked this in the desktop version).

    3) A “Null” text appears next to any photo upload and links to a person who has signed up, stating “Say hello!” Also, the photo only takes half the space, and the “null” text the rest. (Checked in the desktop version)

    4) A ‘like’ to a post done from the mobile version does not appear in the desktop version and vice versa.

    Thank you,
    Haribol!

      I have noted the points. I have very little time to look at KrishnaConnect but the developers of that system are making regular updates so hopefully they will fix these things.

    Prabhu, should we take care of other members of Krishna Connect before posting anything from Srila Prabhupada’s books, lectures, etc.? Or should we post whatever we have actually realized from Srila Prabhupada’s books or shlokas? For example, if there are some mayavadi persons on Krishna Connect then should we avoid quoting Prabhupada saying, “Our is only point: If anybody is a Māyāvādī, he’s a dog. Kick him on his face!! That’s all.”

    • We should become Krishna conscious and then we will know what to do and how to preach. Otherwise, while we are not Krishna conscious, we will just cause trouble.

        Thank you very much Prabhu. I’ll try to become Krishna Conscious more and more so that my preaching will be more effective.

    Hope you are doing well!

    Prabhu, I have been trying to signup to krishnaconnect.com for a very long time, however I get this error everytime:
    “We’re sorry! We are currently experiencing some technical issues. Please try again later.
    Error code: 61e00a ”

    If possible could you add me as a member directly (only when you are free) and set any random password, I would be really grateful!

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
    Haribol!

    Your humble servant,

    • Hare Krishna Rukmini

      I am very sorry for this problem for a long time.

      It should be fixed now, so please try to create your account again and let me know if you are still having any problems.

    I logged in to KrishnaConnect.com and it asks me to verify my email address to enjoy uninterrupted continuation but the email address with which I had opened the account was deleted a long time ago. I have a different email address now and I could not see an option to update my email address from the website. Is it possible that the email can be updated and then verified?

    Thank you.
    Haribol!

    I signed up for Krishnaconnect made the account but whenever I go for email verification it says there is some problem and shows error I request you to look into it. So, that I can sign in using my account.

    • Hare Krishna Aditya

      Yes. I have been neglecting the mailing list due to so much other service. I quickly checked and see it is not sending mail to you but I do not know why at the moment. I will investigate over the next few days as time permits.

    What do we need to do so that more and more devotees become active on Krishna Connect? If you spend some time Krishna Connect then I’m sure many devotees will be attracted but you have many more important services to do. So what other devotees can do?

    • I will work on that when I get some time, gradually we are fixing up the system and later on we can get more devotees using it. But it has died at the moment.

      Your “Madhudvisa said…” all the time does not help. No one wants to hear what “Madhudvisa says.” It is supposed to be talking about Krishna and Prabhupada, it was going on sort of OK before, but then you came in with all your “Madhudvisa says” and banging people on the head with that and they all went away…

      Madhudvisa is saying on Krishna.org, but KrishnaConnect.com is supposed to be a place for the devotees to talk about Krishna and Prabhupada, etc.

      • Aman says:

        Hare Krishna Prabhu

        I’m very sorry for what I have done. I will not do this anymore and will try to post only what Srila Prabhupada and other previous acharyas and Lord Krishna has said. I don’t know how I can rectify this mistake now. Please forgive me for this if possible.

        • Don’t worry Prabhu. You did nothing wrong. And KrishnaConnect.com has been mostly broken anyhow past few months, we will get it working properly again. We have got a new android app now, you can search for it on Google Play store and try it out. So over the next few months we will relaunch KrishnaConnect.com and get the devotees to come back. But they really don’t want to be banged over the head by your “Madhudvisa saids…” But don’t worry. It is all good, you did nothing wrong, and no harm at all and it is not your fault that KrishnaConnect died. It is very hard actually to start a social networking site outside the big ones. But we will do it. But it will happen gradually, we will work on it.

          So keep on posting content there and develop it, but it will grow, in time.

          All these websites I am neglecting at the moment but at some point I will take it more seriously and then they will be much more successful.

    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.

      • Aman says:

        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.

  12. Aman says:

    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!

          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…

  14. 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 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.

    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.

      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..

      • 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!
