Hare Krishna Girija

It does not matter about what job we have in the material world. This world does not matter. The purpose of human life is to prepare ourselves for the next life. There is no point bothering very much about this life. We are only here for a few years and anything we achieve in the material world will be lost at the time of death. So it is a waste of time, bothering about life in this world. Of course we have to do our duty and do some job and make some money to support our families and ourselves, but we do not want to be too much absorbed in this.

We need to use this human form of life for making spiritual advancement. And you will find out how to do this by reading Srila Prabhupada’s books.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

7 hours is OK if you make sure that you are chanting at least 16 rounds and reading Prabhupada’s books 1-2 hours a day. But over time you will find that six hours will be enough. It is a matter of habit.

Comment on The Moon and the Sun… by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/the-moon-and-the-sun/#comment-68450 Madhudvisa dasa Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:31:44 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=3625#comment-68450

We do not believe they are doing these things just because they say they are doing them. Who knows. They may be doing it, but they may not be doing it also. NASA has made such a business out of cheating people with their fake manned moon landings that it seems, after seeing America fake the Apollo moon missions other countries are also thinking they may as well fake their own space exploration.

A good example of this is the recent Chinese moon lander. It contained so many wonderful instruments and could have sent back so many wonderful photos and movies of the moon but they only put out a few photos that looked like they were at least on a different planet to the moon that NASA landed on and that was is. It was very, very suspicious and probably faked.

So the reality is that advances in space exploration are seen as a big achievement for a country so if the country can not actually do it then there is a great temptation to fake it. Particularly since the USA has set the example by faking the NASA Apollo mission.

You know India. They are not above faking it if they can get some millage out of it.

So the reality is we want some actual proof they are doing these things.

The reason they do not want to do anything on the moon is because if they did do anything on the moon it would be relatively easy for anyone with a decent telescope to see the evidence of them doing things on the moon. And why not do something on the moon? And let the whole world see that they are doing something on the moon? That would be the obvious thing to do. But I do not think they can go to the moon.

So if they say they are going to Mars then that is far enough away that no one will every be able to determine if they are there or not from earth.

So we do not believe these things.

If they could actually travel to the moon so easily in the 60′s this interplanetary travel would have developed to a point where nowadays, fifty years later, it would be relatively common for people to travel to the moon and other planets and perform scientific experiments and exploration and industrial enterprises on the moon and other planets. But since the Apollo missions no man has even left earth orbit. The moon is supposed to be a quarter of a million miles away. In the 60′s we are expected to believe they had the technology to safely take men on the half-million mile round trip to the moon and now we can only send men up about 200-300 miles. No more.

So the whole space exploration thing is full of fakery and cheating. NASA has sent the standard for faking space exploration and other countries are just following suit.

Of course I can not say absolutely but it is my strong suspicion that these mars rovers, China’s moon rover, etc, are just rolling around on some fake moon and mars sets in some sound-studio somewhere on earth… There is absolutely no way any of us can know if these things are actually on the moon or mars or somewhere on earth.

So we have to wait for some real proof of these things and so far there is no proof and there is no result from the so-called space exploration.

So we do not believe these things. Unless they can prove they are actually doing the things we do not believe it just because they put it on the television…

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Comment on The Mystery of Deity Worship by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/the-mystery-of-deity-worship/#comment-68447 Madhudvisa dasa Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:15:39 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=5740#comment-68447

You can worship the deity from 4:30 am to 9 pm and take rest from 9pm till 4 am. That is 7 hours. Plenty of sleep for anyone. We have to reduce sleep. Certainly you do not need to sleep 9 hours. It is practice. If you just sleep 7 hours then you will sleep more deeply and feel totally refreshed. Do not worry 7 hours sleep is plenty. Forget about modern science. They have no idea about anything.

If you really need it you can take a rest after lunch for an hour or so. Then you will have 8 hours of sleep. But actually we should not sleep more than 6 hours out of 24. So we have to aim for this. Sleep is maya. For the body we need to sleep a certain amount. In Bhagavad-gita Krishna says we should not sleep too much and also we should not sleep too little. Sleep is necessary for the intelligence to function properly. So not that we can give up sleeping completely. But the great devotees like the Gosvamis in Vrindavan become so busy in serving Krishna they do not have much time for sleep. So they were sleeping not more than 2 hours a day and sometimes even forgetting to sleep 2 hours. But that is not something we can imitate.

6 hours sleep is enough and if you need to then you can sleep 7 hours.

But the most important thing is that you are chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day, strictly following the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day. Unless you do these things you will not be able to make any progress, and if you surrender to these things your spiritual life will automatically advance and you will automatically sleep less.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Comment on The Best Welfare Work by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/the-best-welfare-work/#comment-68444 Madhudvisa dasa Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:06:55 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=6099#comment-68444

No. If you open a temple you have to take the responsibility to administer it yourself…

Opening a temple is not a very easy thing. First we have to surrender to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna and become pure devotees of Krishna and in such a surrendered state we will just do what Srila Prabhupada and Krishna want us to do. So that surrender is necessary. And it may be that what Krishna wants us to do is completely different from what we want to do. So we have to give up what we want to do and surrender to what Prabhupada wants us to do. It may be that Prabhupada wants you to go out on book distribution, not start a temple.

Really temples are not for Kali-yuga. Sankirtana is for Kali-yuga. What Prabhupada established was centers where the devotees who wanted to live in the association of devotees and perform devotional service 24 hours a day could do that. These are not temples in the traditional sense of the term. They are places where Lord Caitanya’s army can live and get strength so every day they can go out onto the streets of the great cities of the world and drop the bombs of Prabhupada’s books on the heads of the conditioned souls and thus awaken the dormant love of Krishna that is present in everyone’s hearts and inundate the world with the flood of love of God…

So it is not temples we want to establish, it is SANKIRTAN PARTIES that we need to establish. A Sankirtan party can exist without a temple, but the temple can not exist without a sankirtan party.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Comment on 2012 — The End of the World? by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/2012-the-end-of-the-world/#comment-68441 Madhudvisa dasa Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:00:14 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=5762#comment-68441

Hare Krishna Kaustubh

Modern science does not know anything about the age of the Earth or practically anything else. They depend totally on mental speculation and guessing based on the very limited information they can gather through their limited senses. So they have guessed 4.5 billion years. On the other hand we know exactly everything because we get the knowledge directly from Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who actually knows everything about everything in full.

If you want to understand the age of the earth and the creation of the universe and the cyclic nature of this you can read Bhagavad-gita As It Is and Srimad-Bhagavatam and everything is described in full detail there.

4,300,000,000 years is one day of Brahma, one night of Brahma is the same, so 24 hours of Brahma is 8,600,000,000

So science is totally wrong about the age of the Earth. They have got a figure that is approximately one day of Lord Brahma [that is 4.3 billion years].

Although at the end of Lord Brahma there is an inundation of the lower and middle planets, they get totally flooded, but they are not destroyed. When Brahma wakes up again the waters recede and Lord Brahma again sets the creation into motion.

So Brahma is about half way through his life of 100 years at the moment. Which means very roughly he is 50, so 50 * 360 of Lord Brahma’s days have passed since the beginning of this creation, so the earth is very roughly 50 * 360 * 4,300,000,000 = 77,400,000,000,000. So that is like 77.4 trillion years I guess, the approximate age of the earth.

These dinosaurs are also just the result of the scientists imperfect imagination and some bones they found.

In previous ages everything was much bigger. As the time goes on we are getting smaller, everything is getting smaller. So people and animals in previous ages may have been gigantic in comparison to what we see today. It is not that things evolve from the simple to the complex. There is no evolution as it is explained by Charles Darwin. There is an evolution of consciousness, the souls are evolving from one body to another depending on their consciousness.

These things are all throughly explained in Srila Prabhupada’s books and if you read Srila Prabhupada’s books then you will understand everything completely. The subject matter is too large for me to explain it completely here and Prabhupada has already explained it completely in his books. SO PLEASE READ SRILA PRABHUPADA’S BOOKS!!!

Hare Krishna Prabhu,
How does modern day science say that the earth is 4.5 billion years old ? Did there not exist a time when there was no human life, just dinosaurs & others ? If so, how come that was a part of Satyuga ? Please elaborate.

Hare Krishna Prabhu,
You might not remember it, but I’m the 16-year-old whom you gave advice to about a spritual master. I greatly thank you for that.
The doubt I have here isn’t directly related to deity worship, but to SLEEP. You mentioned that the deity must be worshipped 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., which would mean getting 6 hours of sleep, as the Gita says is adequate. But I find 6 hours of sleep isn’t sufficient for me, but 7.5 hours is needed [I want to point out that modern-day science says 9 hours is needed for adolescents]. Nevertheless, I feel worried now. Is this needing 7.5 hours of sleep the bad effect of maya, or is this amount of sleep adequate for my age ? Please respond. Thank you.

Extremely beautiful article… The modern schools and educational institutions especially in India should realize this and understand the importance of Vedic culture instead of blindly following or imitating the western culture in the name of globalization and liberalization… The position of India is actually very pathetic.. having lost her own culture and trying to emulate the materialistic nations which are epitomes of demonism and atheism…

The doubt I have now isn’t directly related to deity worship, but to SLEEP. You mentioned that the deity must be worshipped from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., which would mean getting 6 hours of sleep. Now I know, even the purports of the Gita say 6 hours of sleep is enough, but it didn’t seem enough for me when I tried it quite a few times, as l felt sleepy throughout the next day. I find that 7.5 hours of sleep is adequate for me, even though modern day science says 9 hours is needed for adolescents. Should I be worried that I need more than 6 hours of sleep, which is due to the bad effect of maya, or is the 6 hour regimen for adults only, & 7.5 hours for a 16 year old like me is alright ? Thank you.
