Comment on Is the Universe a Computer Simulation? — The Nature of Reality by Premavatihttp://krishna.org/is-the-universe-a-computer-simulation-the-nature-of-reality/#comment-84128 Premavati Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:49:30 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=6992#comment-84128

Hare Mrishna
If the earth is a computer simulation whose master computer is that? No doubt, everything here is temporary and volatile. Even programmed by some higher power . But how did we get to know these technologies? Does some power simulate all these scenes on this earth? And it gives us the knowledge of science and technology ?This idea makes me feel like a cartoon character . After all this world moving with all its matter is a cartoon , I am just a character in the movie ! I am simulated by some machine that makes all the parts of my body do different chores ! Whatever , it is my hypothesis that my presence may be temporary but not false or simulated by another machine. The proof is simple. My mother took 9 long months to fill up the blanks In my body and mind to deliver a full person of me. So is the case with all lives on this earth. They are made of the five + eight + three different combination of matter Life come and go , scenes change . But the 5+8+3 do not change . Each life come here with this 5+8+3 in different combinations . An ant is as busy and intelligent as people . Life cannot be written off calling it ‘simulated’. But sure Created protected and destroyed . Love and hatred is just two sides of human nature . Only two opposites can meet and create results . Hare Krishna

Comment on Krishna Takes Charge of the Devotees, Maya Takes charge of the others by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/to-the-devotees-krsna-takes-charge/#comment-84107 Madhudvisa dasa Wed, 04 Mar 2015 12:13:35 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=4376#comment-84107

Hare Krishna Prabhu

Yes. All your points are correct. It is a very sad situation that materialists and demons have taken over Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON movement and are using it for their own personal benefit.

But we have to expect this. It is what always happens when the great empowered acharya departs from our material vision. There is always chaos after this. If you read this article by Srila Bhaktsiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur you will very clearly understand what is happening in ISKCON today:

http://krishna.org/organised-religion/

There is nothing in this world that will stop the Putanas [demons] from taking charge of the pulpits in any religious organization once the empowered acharya departs. This happens in every spiritual organization. It is because the pulpits are very attractive to the demons. It gives them a position of power and respect and many innocent people come to hear from them and they get to exploit the people for their nefarious motives…

This is just the way of organized religion. Krishna consciousness is not transmitted by organized religion. Krishna consciousness is transmitted from a self realized bona fide spiritual master to his surrender bona fide disciples. That is the only way the the transcendental message can flow. It can not flow in some bureaucratic organized religious organization. Krishna consciousness is a very personal relationship between the bona fide spiritual master and the bona fide disciple.

It is never going to be easy, becoming Krishna conscious in the material world. We are going against the flow. Everyone is demonic here and everyone is going to Hell very fast and they want to take us with them to Hell also. There is an English saying: “Misery loves company.” And that is very true.

So what will ultimately happen is that sincere disciples of Srila Prabhupada will become pure devotees of Krishna and they will preach and reestablish the real mission of Srila Prabhupada. In the meantime we have to become those sincere followers of Srila Prabhupada. We have to become the pure devotees who will reestablish the real mission of Srila Prabhupada, the real mission of Lord Caitanya.

And yes it will happen. Lord Chaitanya’s movement will spread all over the world and everyone will be dancing and chanting in transcendental ecstasy. Prabhupada’s ISKCON will be revived and it will, in its original true form, again spread to every town and village. But we have to work for that. That is our duty as servants of Srila Prabhupada. So as Prabhupada says “It is in your hands now…”

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna Loak

Do not give up trying to follow these principles and never become discouraged even if you fail so many times. It is the nature of the material world. We are surrounded by so many completely materialistic demonic people and by that association it is very easy for us to become contaminated. And we are contaminated ourselves also due to so many lifetimes of sinful activity in the material world. So for us to become actually Krishna conscious and for us to get rid of all the bad habits we have will take some time.

But the Hare Krishna mantra is extremely powerful. If you just surrender to these basic principles: chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day, strictly follow the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and read Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day, you will be successful in the end for sure.

In the meantime we may, due to our bad habits from the past, fall down so many times and fail so many times, but we have to not become discouraged by this. We have to pick ourselves up and again become determined that this time I will succeed, this time maya will not get me. And ultimately by Srila Prabhupada’s mercy and Krishna’s mercy, we will be successful. But do not expect that it will be very easy or instant.

Becoming Krishna conscious is a serious endeavor, we have to undergo tapasya, voluntary suffering for the sake of making spiritual advancement. It means we have to force ourselves to chant at least 16 rounds a day of the Hare Krishna mantra even though we have no taste for chanting Hare Krishna and we have to force ourselves to follow the regulative principles even though we want to break them and we have to force ourselves to read Srila Prabhupada’s books even though we may find them very uninteresting and unattractive.

It is because in the beginning, when we are totally materially contaminated, we have no taste for Krishna consciousness. But Krishna consciousness is very tasty. It is only because of our materially diseased condition that we can not appreciate the ecstatic taste of Krishna consciousness. The example Srila Prabhupada gives in this regard is a man suffering from the disease of jaundice. A jaundice patient looses his taste for sweet things. Sweet things taste nasty to him and he does not like to eat them. But for the jaundice patient the sweet things are the cure for his disease. And he has to take them, even though they taste nasty to him. That is the medicine that will cure his disease.

It is not that the sweet things are nasty. They are sweet. It is only the jaundice disease that causes the man to falsely experience sweet things as nasty. But the sweet things are the cure for his disease so he has to keep on taking them.

So we, because of our materially diseased condition, experience chanting Hare Krishna, following the regulative principles and reading Prabhupada’s books as nasty things that we don’t like, we don’t want to do. But that is only because of our diseased condition. So the material disease causes Krishna conscious activities to seem nasty to us but it is these Krishna conscious activities that are the cure of the material disease.

So we have to go on chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and following the regulative principles, even though we have no taste for chanting Hare Krishna, we want to break the regulative principles and we don’t like reading Srila Prabhupada’s books… But if we perform the tapasya and surrender to these things that will cure our material disease and then we will experience the real ever-increasing ocean of transcendental bliss that is Krishna consciousness.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna Avinash

I am very sorry Prabhu. Right now I am too busy with so much service I do not have the time to write the newsletters. But the idea of the newsletters is to encourage you to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. They are millions of times better than my newsletters. So please start a regular program of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books.

Comment on Very Difficult times for new Bhaktas… by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/difficult-times-for-new-bhaktas/#comment-84092 Madhudvisa dasa Wed, 04 Mar 2015 11:42:22 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=4621#comment-84092

Your mother is obviously a demon so it is not possible for her to cook for Krishna. So just cook for Srila Prabhupada and Krishna yourself.

Eating frozen foods and whatever you can get your hands on means you are eating bhoga, unofferred food. And Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita that eating this unoffered food is just eating sin.

So it is not possible for you to become Krishna conscious unless you surrender to the idea that you can only accept Krishna prasadam. And that means you have to cook for Srila Prabhupada and Krishna yourself. Just stop being lazy and do it. Cook for Krishna, offer it to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna and never eat anything else. That is what I do and that is what all devotees do if they are not living in a temple where the prasadam is available.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Comment on My new film: Giri Govardhana Bathes in the River Yamuna by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/my-new-film-giri-govardhana-bathes-in-the-river-yamuna/#comment-84089 Madhudvisa dasa Wed, 04 Mar 2015 11:38:57 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=5694#comment-84089

Hare Krishna Mother Chandralekha

The film is nice, please try to watch it. The only reason I think you are seeing a blank screen may be that for KrishnaTube.com where the video comes from it plays the videos on port 81, not the standard port 80. So some computers that have firewalls may block port 81, then the video would appear blank. I will try to fix this when I get some time.

In the meantime if you have a firewall on your computer you can open up port 81 or you can try watching on another computer.

Comment on Rare Photos of Balaji (from Lord Sri Venkateswara temple at Tirupati) by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/rare-picture-of-balaji/#comment-84086 Madhudvisa dasa Wed, 04 Mar 2015 11:28:07 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=2936#comment-84086

I do not have any higher resolution of these photos than what is here on the website unfortunately.

There is a Photoshop plugin called “Perfect Resize” which takes low resolution images and produces high resolution images from them. It is very good but going from this size image to a 5′ 6″ image may be a bit too much. But you could try it and see.

They have a free trial so you can try it and see how it works and let me know how you get on with it.

Comment on “I am not this Body.” Easy to say… by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/i-am-not-this-body-easy-to-say/#comment-84083 Madhudvisa dasa Wed, 04 Mar 2015 11:24:17 +0000 http://krishnaconnect.com/?p=6#comment-84083

Hare Krishna!

Yes. The whole nature of today’s world is very sinful and very disturbing for the practice of spiritual life. But still we have to practice spiritual life. That is the only purpose of the human form of life and the only way we can get out of this mess and go back home back to Godhead to serve Krishna in the spiritual world.

Almost all the ideas of today’s Hinduism are actually totally materialistic. They know, for example, that by performing pious activities like feeding the poor and opening schools, hospitals, etc, they will get ‘good karma’ and this good karma will give them pious credits that means when they take birth in the material world again they will be born in a good family with good material facilities, etc. But that is no good. Because the material world is a place of misery and death, even if we are born in a relatively good position in the material world we still have to suffer so much.

So this idea of performing pious activities to generated good karma is not accepted by the devotees. Birth in the material world is miserable and a suffering condition and ends in disease, old age and death, even for those who have “good karma”. So this good karma is no protection from the sufferings of the material world.

So devotees do not care for good karma or bad karma. Because any kind of karma [good or bad] binds us to the material world. It forces us to take birth in the material world again and suffer. So devotees act in such a way that they do not generate any karma, good or bad. This is called akarma.

The science of how to live in such a way that we do not generate any karma, good or bad, is elaborately explained by Srila Prabhupada in his books. Please read Srila Prabhupada’s books and learn this science and make your life perfect. Then you will get your childhood heart back, even better than your childhood heart…

I don’t understand what you are saying. As far as food it is simple. We just get nice quality vegetables, fruits, grains and milk products and prepare them, cook them for Srila Prabhupada and Krishna and offer them and then we get to respect Krishna prasadam. Simple thing.

You’re still alive and kicking! Great!

I remember fondly the prasadam you served to us in Tompkin Square Park.

Someone told me you were in dire straits or were dead.

I am glad to see you are doing well and look healthier than ever and that you have a thriving community in Hawaii–soo beautiful.

Hope to hear about your wonderful life on the Farm often.

It is known that the God gave me this body to reach him then why a lot of diseases being killing the people. I wanted to reach but how? Doing Meditation, helping or feeding poor people.
But those sitthars just do thabas for years and they get what they want. Do we have to follow the same footstep to do thabas to reach the Unknown God or live our life as we wish or follow the heart what it says? God is unknown to our mind and beyond everything. The creator himself living within me according to Thirumular but I cannot feel or taste of him within me.
When I was a young boy, my heart was so pure that I can feel the pleasure within me but now my mind and heart is impure due to our surroundings and modern living of our life. I wanted my childhood heart back.
