I am a Christian priest, and no I would disagree with you. Everything is meant to be offered to God. This is the true meaning of priest- one who offers everything to God. When we offer thanks, we are offering this to God. He smells the sacrifices when offered in love.

Thankyou for your response.
Yes I understand that Srila Prabhupada is a bona fide guru.
However my question is; can we be intiated by him when he has left this world? And therefore become a direct disciple of Srila Prabhupada?

Dear Madhudvisa, all Glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Thankyou for providing this facility and sharing your wisdom. This is such a help for me to have independent unbiased wisdom.
In reference to your response to Erin, September 12, 2002 by Madhudvisa dasa Filed under Guru, Letters
…..’That is Prabhupada’s gift to us. Prabhupada is still with us and still quite capable of initiating us if we really surrender to him’.
Is this really true? Can he still initiate us if we fully surrender to him and his teaching. This would be a dream come true for me and I could ‘rest in peace’ for the rest of my material life. I have been searching and seaching Vedic texts and Prabhupada’s books including Prabhupada Lilamrta for an indication of this, but the ‘best’ I could get was ‘serving Prabhupada in separation’.
Prabhupad keeps reinforcing in all his writings that we must accept a bonafide Guru to ‘advance’ in devotional service, and that we can only come to Krishna thru the realised master.
So what to do…… please advise me… all glories to you.

Krishna doesn’t care if I smoke, have illicite sex or whatever “you can only and please do chant 16 rounds for me this makes me happy. What else could you do. Everything belongs to me you can’t give me anything the only thing you can make me smile and getting tears in my eyes is chanting 16 rounds at least!” So he doesn’t care. Smoke, drink, use drugs whatever he says I just look at your rounds. But Prabhupada cares “no cigarettes, no cigarettes, no cigarettes…” so wouldn’t I follow Swami Prabhupada Krishna would also be pissed but actually Krishna doesn’t care if I smoke or whatever. He doesn’t give rules or forbid anything only take my rounds and love!
Guess those lines could be important for beginners plz don’t delete!

You stated that the Gita states that in Krishna’s abode, it will not be illuminated by sun or moon or electricity. Since there was no electricity when the Gita was written, how is this word in there? Did Krishna know that thousands of years later we would have electricity? Thank you and

Dear Madhudvisa Dasa!
If there is opportunity shall we ask people that say things like
“this f… indian things”
“you only turn to it as an escape”
“you’re a joke”
to please spell/sing HARE KRSNA to make another soul give pleasure to the Lord despite of and without regard to all abuse or shall we immediatley quit contact because this is offend?

I’ve read that it is even more effective to be of service to god if you are devoted to his personal devotes
everytime god comes down to earth again, he is joined by his associates like we meet each other as lovers or brothers and sisters
the author of caitanya bhagavat stated that vyasadeva would continue his work about the pastimes of lord caitanya
so hopefully more truth is uncovered in the future of mankind

Dear brothers and sisters,
Hinduism existed only for the past 5000 years but Sanatana dharma has been there since the origin of earth.Hinduism as it is being called now is a very scientific religion.Unfortunately the people couldn’t understand them or the message it tries to convey.Why?Jason, pay attention.If the ages of the bridge is correct scientfclly(1,750,000 years old)that means it had existed long before people learn to write or read using hardware.Can you tell us when paper was found?So,about 2 million years ago,it was impossible to teach people about science.Even now,how many can understand the theory behind the big bang or the black hole?The rishis or the educated people educated the people in the form of stories.The problem with Hindus and others is, they remember the story but they never try to get the message.
Einsten had mentioned hindu scriptures are the gold mines or the treasures of the scientific world.Why Einsten should say so?He found many things by researching the hindu scriptures.Hindus are lacking here.They don;t care about the message.They only care about the story.Jason, if you read this pls,check the scientific journal of Einsten and many other famous scientists.It will enlighten you.
I read the story and I try to find the messge behind it.Many Indian scientist must come forward to expose the treasure we have.

Haribol to you all!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada….DANDAVATS….please accept my humble obeisances.
I once went there. At that time I was very unfit, sick at soul, mental and body. I made no difference between ISKCON or something else I thought “here is Krishna and there is also Krishna no matter what this institution is called”. I just needed help and Prabhupada writes that Krishna is the only one that really can help you so I also went to the Gaudiya Math. Before this I also visited an ISCKON temple…chantig and eating prasadam for a view days “Oh, here is everything so geat, why: because everyone just cares about Krishna all the time. Nothing else only Krishna. That’s it…this is the way” I thought.
So back home without ISKCON temple I started missing that and therefore I went to the Gaudiya Matha because I thought Krishna is Krishna and I didn’t know Prabhupada’s point of view about his Godbrothers and their Gaudiya Math Camp at that time. It should be an experience he sent me there I guess nowadays to share it with you all.
So immediately I felt the difference of purity. I was only talking about Prabhupada, ISKCON, his Books and the 16 rounds which I hardly try to chant everyday. They just said “ISKCON yes, yes….” no comment but soon I realized where I stepped into. Prabhupada’s picture at the wall wasn’t looking very nicely to me “What are you doing there, away immediatley”. He was very angry.
At prasadam time a “devotee” came to me talking about psychological things because I was really unhealthy at that time so I said “Yes but I came here because the maha-mantra destroys all the sickness, your problems. It is the only way in this age, chanting Hare Krishna”. Now
IMAGINE THIS, THE ANSWER WAS “YES THEY SAY SO, IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SO GREAT”.
I came there to hear about the thing that can help me, solve my problems and all I get as an answer is “They say so” like “maybe, it’s posssible”.
Hardly swallowing the “prasadam”, the food I knew here I’m wrong there is deffinitely a difference between Prabhupada’s stage and the others. I needed to experience that I know today.
I view months later I got told “If you want something real 16 rounds are wanted to be chanted”.
So things are getting better in my life….big Hug and see you all in Vaikuntha

You can’t be serious. You mean to tell me that people actually believe man has gone to the moon with inferior technology of the 60′s and; we can’t go 1 mile beneath the surface of the ocean to stop this oil crisis in the year 2010. Now, if I’m not mistaken, isn’t the moon closer than one mile away. If so/if not, we need to revisit the technology of the 60′s that ( SO-CALLED ) sent man to the moon.
Somebody is playing games somewhere.

I am a firm believer that it is all a hoax. And Steve do you know who runs the Lunar orbitor? Yeah thats right NASA. Of course there going to fake more pictures with all the controversy. Great article buy the way.
» Posted By chris On July 18, 2009 @ 2:54 am
I found these pictures posted by NASA. This is best that has been achieved, I guess. The Hubble does not have the resolution to pick them up, it is a space telescope and this issue may have been addressed before.
Of course these are low res. and critics will claim, that as posted by NASA, they are faked.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada
Dandavats….please accept my humble obeisances
and all the other bible stuff because they talk about God!
Buddhists are better ‘cause they don’t claim to know anything about an/the absolute truth and don’t talk about God therefore they don’t comtaminate your consciousness that heavy as Christians etc. do!
WORSE THAN UNTRUTH IS HALFTRUTH!!!
But in the end they’re all hypocrites ‘cause they don’t take/receive Krishnas mercy, live under his beautiful lotusfeet and therefore are the best friends to all living being. Actually they should crawl on the floor and cry but they can’t admit….RASCALS!!
ONLY Prabhupada is right let us (try to) spread his glories widely all over the world without regard to difficulties involved! You are so blessed Madhudvisa Dasa thank you so much for this service through the internet THANK you for the dust of your lotosfeet Gopal, Govinda, Trivikrama, Sridhara, Hrsikesa, Padmanabha, Yasodanandana……

Many thanks for this discourse. It is a wonderfully refreshing discourse.

Dear Madhudvisa Dasa
Thank you very much for sending me this newsletters and the recording.
If you allow I’d like to write a few lines about the time when I first heard about Srila Prabhupada, vedic knowledge and especially Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
I read a book which later when reading “B-G As It Is” I suspected to be what is described as “Mayavada-Philosophy”.
I started reading Bhagavad-Gita but due to the mentioned book I saw Krishna in a kind of….let me call it objective light (?). I didn’t manage to associate with devotees yet(also never visited a temple) but by continually reading Prabhupada’s books I did get things straight(in connection with this “mayavada-point of view”), theoretically. I really trust in this way and feel deeply indebted to Srila Prabhupada but still I got problems to follow the four regulative principles.
I’m looking forward to receiving your next letters.

Hare Krishna Prabhu Madhudvisa Dasa!
Please accept my humble obeisances, Dandavats!
All glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada!
I’d be very grateful I you had some time to read a few lines of mine.
First of all thanks a lot for the products you sent me. I received them this week. Chanting on tulasi beads is much better than on Neem beads or the self-made japa which I used to chant on so far. I’m also very happy to have now these fist class essential oils for RADHARANI!!!!
Yes, since the biginning of February I guess Radharani started to play a very important role in my life, my existince. Somehow or other, I can’t explain how come, I received her mercy. Therefor I’m so glad to have the best essential oils for Her!!
She is so nicely engaging me in her service, every step all the day long is based on thoughts like “does this satisfy Radharani, is this okey or should I do better best of the gopis?”
So, this is what I ask you to please write some lines about if you could. Somewhere I read that we Krsna-Devotees (of course I don’t call myself devotee, only can wish to receive their association) ACTUALLY are not looking for Krsna’s mercy and dust of lotus feet, no it’s RADHARANIS dust and mercy because she is the best Devotee. As you hopefully feel inspired please Prabhu write some lines about this topic.
In about two months (hopefully) Krsna will appear in my home in form of a 40 cm big statue. So, IMMEDIATELY NICE SWEET LOVELY RADHARANI asked:
“Oh please, my dear servant in love when Krishna arrives pleeeease do a carving: I shall kneel beside him and in this way you can give beautiful flowers and (especially!!) Tulasi leaves into my (lotus)hands. Then I can serve my beloved Lord with the items you give me. Would you pleeease do so? This is my biggest desire pleeeeasssee do me this favor!!!!”.
So Prabhu, I guess I got the point. THIS is REAL SPRITUAL SCIENCE, LISTEN:
I, as a person searching for Krsna Prema, have received RADHARANIS mercy and now I only wish to satisfy her, serve her perfectly. Praying to the Lord “Krishna, unfortunately I don’t know you. I don’t understand you I am not able to serve you appropriately nor is there a little love or devotion I have for you but pleeeasssse I URGE YOU: Let me satisfy and live for RADHARANI!!
So now RADHARANI says: “my dear devotee, you are so fortunate. Krsna has agreed to appear at your home/before you (as a 40cm high statue) so pleeeaasssse I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT HIM. YOU MUST carve me out of wood so that I can kneel before him and throw most beautiful flowers and Tulasi leaves over his lotus feet. Only this will satisfy my heart!!”.
So, in this way, by carving RADHARANI I will serve her most perfectly by giving her the opportunity to serve the lotus feet of her beloved Lord and as well (or maybe especially!) I will serve Lord Krishna in the most most MOST most MOSTMOSTMOST!!!!! perfect way because then he will from his BIGGEST DEVOTEE RADHARANI get flowers and tulasi leaves and I am the one who arranges this!!!!!
This is my service for the Lord. Radha serves him and this is my service for Radha because she only wants to serve her beloved Lord and in this way I serve perfectly the Divine Couple…….
……I’m done, I can’t think this to an end, this is real spiritual science and inteligence and NOW let’s go to the ROOT:
Why does the Lord come to me in form of a 40cm high statue AT ALL????
It’s only due to my chanting of 16 rounds daily!!!!!!
WOW!! YOU GOT ME PRABHU MADHUDVISA DASA AND ALL THE OTHER EMBRACED READERS OF THIS BLESSED LETTERS!!!!???!!
Let’s bow down before the lotus feet of the most merciful servant of the Divine Couple RADHA-KRSNA our Swamiji Srila Prabhupada!
Dandavats, see you all in Vaikuntha
