Please Clear Your Ad Before Submission
by Chakra editors
Posted April 8, 2006

Chakra frequently receives ads submitted by well-meaning devotees affiliated with ISKCON temples all over the world. In a number of cases, the authors later write and ask us to remove these ads because temple management didn't want them posted on the web. This can create conflict in the temple communities, disappointment among readers who respond, and unnecessary work for the Chakra webmaster. We know that the devotees who submit these ads are sincere and only want to help. Unfortunately, Chakra simply doesn't have the resources to obtain authorization for each ad prior to posting, so we have to assume that all ads have been approved by those involved. We would therefore like to encourage prospective submitters to please check with their local temple management before submitting any ads on their behalf. Thank you.

Sri Krsna Caitanya is perhaps the best example the world has seen of devotional ecstasy in love of God. He was a towering figure of golden complexion from whose lotus eyes hot tears of spiritual rapture poured constantly--a golden mountain erupting in ecstasy, its lava consuming everything in its path. He melted hearts as he heralded the holy name of Sri Krsna, swooning, dancing, and distributing the method to his spiritual madness--Sri Krsna sankirtana. (Click here for the full article)
