Hare Krishna Aditya

Yes. Chewing tobacco is intoxication and is against the principles. You can stop it by chanting Hare Krishna and accepting Krishna prasadam. And you will need to know how to identify a bona fide spiritual master otherwise you will be cheated by a bogus spiritual master and your life will be ruined. For that you have to study Srila Prabhupada’s books. Prabhupada has given us everything in his books. We have to read them. Unless we read Srila Prabhupada’s books there is no chance of us actually becoming Krishna conscious.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

People are afraid of dying because they misidentify the body as the self. They think when the body dies they die. So they are afraid. If one actually realizes that he is not the body but the spirit soul within the body and that only the body, not the soul, dies, then he is not afraid of death.

Comment on There’s No Need to Leave Home and Join the Temple… by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/theres-no-need-to-leave-home-and-join-the-temple/#comment-67427 Madhudvisa dasa Thu, 18 Sep 2014 10:10:35 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=2951#comment-67427

Hare Krishna

For men marriage is not necessary. But for women they need to be married.

Generally speaking married life is a distraction from spiritual life because it is very much on the bodily concept of life and spiritual life is about getting off the bodily concept of life. But for one who has the desire for sex, for family life, etc, marriage is recommended and for such a person religious marriage is actually one of the samskaras, or spiritual reformatory processes.

For a married person having sex within marriage for the purpose of having children is authorized. But if one has sex outside marriage that is very sinful and will make spiritual advancement difficult.

So religious marriage allows a person to associate with a woman and have children and a family life which is within Krishna consciousness. And ultimately he will see that there is no happiness in this family life and will retire from family life with strong determination to make further spiritual advancement.

Hare Krishna Ashwin

Yes. This changing always happens. What happens is the empowered personality of Krishna Himself personally appears and sets everything up correctly and then in time everything is lost and then there is a need for Krishna to appear again and reestablish things correctly or send His pure devotee to do this.

What we have is correct and authentic through the disciplic succession. We are trying our best to preserve the original books of Srila Prabhupada but there is no guarantee that in the future the things will not be changed.

But that does not matter for us now. Now we have full access to the original teachings of Srila Prabhupada so now we should take full advantage of this and become pure devotees of Krishna ourselves and preach.

The nature of the material world is time destroys everything. So in time so many bogus things are introduced into every spiritual tradition and soon the original meaning and the original ideas become lost.

Practically now in ISKCON almost all the original ideas Srila Prabhupada established for ISKCON have been lost. But it does not matter because we have Prabhupada’s original books and all the original ideas are there and we can read Prabhupada’s books and know everything perfectly and correctly.

Comment on The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/the-ten-offenses-in-chanting-the-hare-krishna-mantra/#comment-67421 Madhudvisa dasa Thu, 18 Sep 2014 09:57:21 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=5948#comment-67421

Of course we may be disturbed by material desires. That is not unnatural. But we have to know that even if we can ‘satisfy’ these material desires that will not satisfy us and will not help us in any way. So you simply have to commit to following the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day, this is the solution to your problems. The only solution. You have to accept these things and follow them. That is your answer.

Even if your mind is disturbed still you have to force yourself to chant Hare Krishna and the power of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra will bring your mind under control and focus it at the lotus feet of Krishna.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna Paul

Krishna actually does not need your help but you have to find out how to become Krishna conscious and that will help you to help Krishna. Krishna consciousness is a great science and Srila Prabhupada has written so many books describing this science. If you want to learn it, like any other science, then you have to study the books.

So read Srila Prabhupada’s books and you will find all the answers to your questions and much more.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna Hrishkesh

There is no point in complaining about ISKCON or trying to correct ISKCON. They can not be corrected. ISKCON has gone so far away from Prabhupada now there is no bringing them back to Prabhupada.

We have to become sincere followers of Srila Prabhupada ourselves and preach. There is no need in worrying about ISKCON. They are finished. At least from the spiritual point of view. They may be able to push on a mundane religion for a few years but there is no spiritual potency in ISKCON any more. We have to provide a better alternative. Not waste time complaining about ISKCON.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Comment on Finding someone who understands Krishna is VERY rare by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/finding-someone-who-understands-krishna-is-very-rare/#comment-67409 Madhudvisa dasa Thu, 18 Sep 2014 09:47:30 +0000 http://krishna.org/?p=12128#comment-67409

Hare Krishna Sundaree

Yes. Krishna is neutral but at the same time if you keep on reading Bhagavad-gita you will find that Krishna also protects His devotees and destroys the demons [paritraay sadhunam vinasya ca duskritam].

Krisha is equal to everyone but He responds according to one’s surrender. So if one is a devotee and he surrenders to Krishna then Krishna will respond to that, but if one is a demon and wants to attack Krishna Krishna may respond by killing the demon.

Krishna is actually equal to everyone and Krishna’s killing the demons is also mercy for the demons. It is good for the demons to be killed by Krishan. So it is not that Krishna hates the demons and loves the devotees. No. Krishna loves everyone, demons and devotees alike, but He reciprocates according to the surrender…

Our business should be to love Krishna and serve Krishna without any expectation of return from Krishna. That is real love.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Comment on Ghosts and Spirits Are Real! by Madhudvisa dasahttp://krishna.org/ghosts-and-spirits-are-real/#comment-67403 Madhudvisa dasa Thu, 18 Sep 2014 09:31:18 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=2066#comment-67403

Hare Krishna David

A ghost is a disembodied spirit. So when someone dies, if they do not promptly go to their next destination, they can hang around as a ghost. They are still in the material world with us and they can still perceive what is going on but they have no material body so they can not interact with the world very well. So they often want to take over someone’s body so they can use it to do the things they want to do.

All the ghosts are evil spirits and demons. There are only demons and devotees. So the devotees do not become ghosts. So any ghost will be a demon and practically all ghosts will be evil.

and 71 mahavantaras 4294080000 = 1 day of brahma

4294080000 = and 1 night of brahma

8588160000 = 1 day and night of brahma

embrace all religions and beliefs
be proud to be a Hindu
understand who you are and where you come from

we all come from him but are given different births and bodies according to our actions
therefore do good and be good

God doesn’t put us into situations that we cannot handle

we are responsible for our own actions

think before you speak and and act , but know that Krishna is the supreme controller.

Comment on Nothing happens without the sanction of God by Siddhartha Hazarikahttp://krishna.org/nothing-happens-without-the-sanction-of-god/#comment-67349 Siddhartha Hazarika Mon, 15 Sep 2014 16:26:16 +0000 http://spiritsecrets.com/?p=2983#comment-67349

Hare Krishna,

At the very onset please accept my humble gratitude. By the mercy of Krishna, I am born into a Vaishnava family in this birth. The omnipotent and omnipresent nature of Lord Krishna is being discussed in our family since my childhood which is still going on as it is a never ending process. But the real illusion was broken only when I read Srila Prabhupad’s Bhagavad Gita As It Is. I came into terms with the real wisdom that was being spoken by Lord Krishna Himself. Every time I read it I learn new things. I’ll always remain in debt to Lord Krishna and His Divine Prabhupadji for this mercy. However the main point I want to discuss is-in Bhagavad Gita it is mentioned that even if an individual is engaged in the most abominable of activities, if he doesn’t deviate from the path of devotion towards Lord Krishna, he will be kept in the right track by the blessings of Krishna. My concern is that I do believe in the words spoken by Krishna Himself but sometimes I feel guilty when I engage in activities of day to day life not approved by Krishna. At the same time the thought of Krishna supervising my activities come to my mind. Does this state of mind of mine can anyway hinder my devotion towards Krishna?

Hare krishna prabhu!
Thank you for the nice articles! I was just having some doubts and thought of seeking your help. I thought that krishna loves us too much and observes us and feel for us. But i just flipped through some pages in gita and saw that krishna said he is always neutral! I am somehow disturbed by this statement of his! How can he be neutral! If he were he would never have saved prahlad maharaj and appeared as nrsingha dev! He would have let hiranyakasipu harm prahlad by staying neutral! He would never have saved draupadi’s honour but rather let her get disrobed by the wicked dushasan!! How can he be neutral to us??!! Please help me prabhuji!! I am sorry if i have made some offence!

Hare Krishna Prabhu,
There is a ISKCON temple in Assam[India]. But here the temple members are not doing any preaching work. There is no book distribution nor there is kirtana in the streets. They are just maintaining the temple and sometimes distributes food[not even prasadam] to school children. But whatever I have read about Srila Prabhupada till now he has said that modern schools atheistic education, so we should protest against them. but instead of protesting, they are encouraging the schools. Also in the day of Janmastami, instead of doing something special for Krishna, they have engaged themselves in holding various competitions. It looked like all were striving for the prizes. No one was interested in Krishna, it was no Janmastami.
Should I protest against all these or let them continue what they are doing?
