Your Dreams Determine Your Destiny

  • We shape our dreams & they shape us

  • No great people - ordinary people committed to great dreams



Your Dreams Determine Your Dignity

  • No dream means no esteem, just existing

  • Krishna’s plan for you gives hope & a future



Your Dreams Determine Your Direction

  • Your roles determine your goals. If you are married, part of your dream involves your children and your spouse. If God gives you a dream it won't be to ignore what they think and you go on. Confirm it with the people closest to you. There are seasons in life. But don't waste your life.

If you want to get serious about what Krishna's dream is for your life, you have to decide if you're going to settle for the American dream or for Krishna's dream. The good life or God's life. Materialism or ministry. Rat race or Krishna's race. Dedicate yourself and don't worry about being like everybody else.

  • Dump the excess

  • baggage. There may

  • be relationships,

  • friendships that are

  • pulling you down,

“The stage had then been set. Charu had been the president of two ISKCON temples, operated a large traveling festival, spoken into microphones and on stage hundreds of times, produced radio shows, and also had some limited exposure to the Utah culture. He had money for a down payment, the ethic to produce more money as needed, the experience of establishing and running temples, and a respect for the Mormon lifestyle. Therefore, the pious and godly location available catered to his qualifications and specifications. A window of opportunity opened for Charu and His wife Vaibhavi, allowing them to jump through and become Utah's Krishna Pioneers.”

“There is a story about the founder of the Hare Krishna movement, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami. One day while sitting on a New York park bench he was approached by a subway conductor. This occurred during his early days in America when he was yet unknown and extremely poor. The conductor inquired as to who he was and what he was doing. Prabhupada, as the swami is called, explained that he was very wealthy and had temples all over the world filled with spiritual disciples. The man looked puzzled at what appeared an obvious fib whereupon Prabhupada replied, "It is only separated by time!"

  • 3. It releases Krishna's power. Because of your faith, you've stepped out of the boat and started walking on water and Krishna holds you up.



The first phase of faith is a dream. It starts with a dream. Nothing happens in your life until you start dreaming. I'm not saying just think up whatever you want to think up. I'm saying seriously, ask God. I dare you to dream great dreams for God. It doesn't cost a penny to dream.
