Prema Dharma

During this incredibly difficult time, I’ve been fortunate to have a comfortable home, a good support system, & my needs mostly provided for by my parents & the State. I’m in relatively decent health & am an incredibly introverted person by nature who typically prefers to be alone, so for me, this seclusion hasn’t really been a hardship but actually quite a blessing in many ways. I’m grateful for the reprieve from worldly obligations/responsibilities & am doing my best to try to utilize this time to focus on healing, growth, & offering nourishment to the other souls who are suffering worse than I am. This time of external calamity has been & continues to be a wonderful opportunity for us all to work on sewing & watering seeds of compassion & devotion in our hearts & in the hearts of others.

This time of forced physical isolation, separation, & distance is an perfect opportunity to meditate on the concepts of union in separation, and what good association & devotional service actually mean in a deeper way, not just on the physical/external platform. I actually feel very grateful on so many levels but also recognize that I have been more fortunate than many & thus am very interested in doing what I can for those who are in greater pain & need than I am currently. I am trying to pay it forward, so to speak, & share the mercy that I’ve received in the hopes that it may help soothe some of the pain from the raging forest fires of material suffering we all feel.

Premadharma.org is a website dedicated to the teachings of the Bhakti Yoga tradition that have saved my life on numerous occasions & that continue to keep saving it every moment of every day. There are many other websites, fb pages/groups, youtube channels, & more resources including livestreamed daily classes, audiobooks, ebooks, etc. that are all freely offered for no reason other than to try & help mitigate the suffering we all experience just from being alive in this world. If you’d like to learn more, have any questions, and/or would like me to provide you with links to resources about specific subjects, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

My heart goes out to you all. I post these things because nothing else has helped assuage my daily suffering to the same degree that learning about/practicing these teachings has. Because I know just how unbearable it can get, I cannot in good conscience keep these teachings to myself. I love you all very much. Please continue to do your best to take care of yourselves & one another with compassion, patience, & understanding. We are all in this together.

Hare Krishna! ❤
