Humility pridelessness nonviolence tolerance simplicity approaching a bona fide spiritual master cleanliness steadiness self-control renunciation of the objects of sense gratification absence of false ego the perception of the evil of birth, death, old age and disease detachment freedom from entanglement with children, wife, home and the rest even-mindedness amid pleasant and unpleasant events constant and unalloyed devotion to Me aspiring to live in a solitary place detachment from the general mass of people accepting the importance of self-realization and philosophical search for the Absolute Truth -- all these I declare to be knowledge, and besides this whatever there may be is ignorance.(Bhagavad-gita 13.8-12)

Living with Vows
This is our story, it is our own description of the life that we actually live. Not the story of one man, but a collective story of some impressions. It is written for anyone and everyone who desires to read it as a matter of interest, but also especially to offer support and insight to those who are actual practitioners of life with spiritual vows.

The Faith Book
“The Faith Book” was written as a reader or a course-manual for a seminar on faith. Therefore it’s not really a book, but rather a reference manual. The manual is divided in to 5 sections and then followed by a dozen appendixes. The first section deals with definitions and so on, just to provide a frame of reference.You may just want to brush over it and not read it in depth. In the seminar we are not paying too much attention to this section. We focus especially on the second, third and fourth section; “Personal Conviction”, “Faith in the context of ISKCON” and “Dialogue”. The fifth section was offering some topics for essays for the students participating in the course.

Diary of a Spiritual Journey
Never before in my life have I maintained a diary, especially not a public one. I am following in the footsteps of many senior vaisnavas, who have also taken up this proces. My aim is to communicate with many people at once in a personal way, I am receiving more e-mails than I can handle. It’s not that my diary is meant to replace personal correspondence, but since I can not manage to write so many letters, this is at least a way to communicate. I hope you will like it.
