Three things. 1. I am not the Anthony who you replied about the body and brain.2. On what article even though you replied here can i find that comment of yours that you replied to the other Anthony.3
As far as i seem to know i think i do understand your explanation of brain and mind along with intelligence false ego and spirit soul.
But just want to confirm one thing. As you know we are in the material world and our consciousness has become on bodily consciousness more and more depending on the number of births we took. So the damage of brain does two things. First it would be difficult as we need out brains to be well to learn spiritual knowledge so that we can develop Krsna Consciousness. 2. It will determine how we act in the body which is expression of the mind to spirit soul right.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. If the brain does not function properly then how is it related to the mind, intelligence and spirit soul.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa. What is the mind? And what is the brain? Brain as far as i know seems the physical gross part of body which controls the function of the body. Mind seems subtle like the emotions and feeling.
You mentioned taking the drug affects the brain and its function. But how does it affect the mind like the emotions and feelings.
I have this question of whether mind or brain is the same thing or not.

I just want God and his peace! Nothing else! I dont want to be great or rite, only settled in Gods heart and mind. Nothing else.

So I theorise that only by love of God in simple truth, devotion and the controll of sences in God conciousness to be the prime tool in anything. In these thingd I believe that focus on religion derails the path to God. So even though I greatly desire a temple, I also fear its fall political sway of the religion. For istance. I may find a temple, but then I would be subject to political buracracy, suddenly I cannot freely of my will read the bible, go off and silently meditate to myself, or practice at desire and knowladge of God. I gues it can be said I desire the solitude of a temple, the wisdome or accessibulity to the wisdome of a spiritual master and the company of devout believers where I can dwell, grow and seek God uninterupted around those that do the same where I would not suffer the ignorance and frustrations of non believers or persons that clame knowladge but have no practice or disiplin.

Why is it that whenever someone sinceraly seeks God and to seperate from the ways of the world that people imedeatly think crazy and deranged and then begine insulting, arguing, critisizing, and mocking? Just annother reason I want to find a temple. Im constantly surrounded by so called scholars that talk all day about what they think they know, but practice nothing. Just simpl indulge in there sences, live the ways of the world then say oh, I believe in Christ, so I have no worries. But this makes no sence. I want to dwel in the place of God. But constantly I am bombarded by the ignorant words of people all arround me and afflicted by there mindlesd conversations. I am not strong, and tryi.g

Now one of my biggest probloms is this: lets say I complete the work and bring these 4 things under co.troll, do meditation apropriate for this time and read. Then what do I do with myself? I can only read and meditate soo much in one day, especialy at just begini.g, so how and what do I do to keep from distraction and and idle thought then? Further more, unless a proper temple opens and I devote myself utterly, I still must eat and survive, and have to partake of the world and its destracions to do so, how then should I survive without destraction?

Ferther more, it had been told to me that Krishna says to defend. In the sence of self controll to further enlightenment and spiritual liberation I have been contenplating practicing martial arts again to aid in further self control. Bur I am confused. What would be best for me? To renounce works, give only devotional service, read, pray and meditate? Only work mind? Or would practicing martial arts further spiritual liberation? What is it I should do? I only want to liberate the soul, understand the self. What is it I can do to rise above karma, rebirth and liberate the soul? I lack the wisdome. Further more. I get together with friends anf run a game simular in mechanics to dungeons and dragons. It is played on paper back charicter sheets, dice and imaginary game play. I am thinking this to gambling. Should this be stopped? Or is this okay. You can clearly I would think from your standpoinr understand my entanglement and problomes, but from where I stand I see nothing but confution and bewilderment. With all these things I am not only lost, but lost as to what to do and how to achieve it. And no, my search for God does not set its roots in fantasy gaming, nither do I relate the two. Its only that often in trying to liberate myself from material contact that I do not know what to do with myself as I can only imagine it is because I am still in ignorance relating to the body as self. I apreceate yout patience in all this mindless bable and queshtioning and hope you will with dilligence explain to me the error of my ways.

Okay. I will start on this imedeatly. I will quit smoking. Continue to not eat meat, not take part in illicit sex, and not gamble. I will start by tonight by reading his books and again beguin to work my way to 16 rounds of Hare Krishna. And I see you are also correct. I dont know if I am ready as I am still attatched to people and smoking. I would imagine weeks of insanity and heard break detatching from these things. Honestly speaking that is. I am building a meditation block in the back yard as well and trying to learn to bring myself under controll for meditation. I see this is not one of the key things you have mentioned so I will put this practice second to the three you advise me on. But perhaps you will have some knowladge you can share with me on meditation and detatching myself from people and smoking. More so, I would very much enjoy and would be honored if we can remain in contact untill maybe a rite temple would be opened near me and I become ready for true devotion. I can give you my phone number or email some how if this would be acceptable, or even off of here if this constant comunication would be possible. I could use someone to help me navigate untill I develope a clear understanding if you would honor me

Okay. Here is that testimoney. I coppied then pasted it. The person I beguin asking about is AC Bhaktivedanta Swami. I am sinceraly greatful for your helping me. I may after these things are resolved have questions on how to join a temple. Not as an outside visiter, but as a live in devotee.
Who is this that you write about? Is he a man? I do not understand. It seems that you are calling a man lord. This confuses me. well. My name is anthony. Im 31 and completely lost in life. I have believed in Christ since I was 17 but in it I still lived a sinful life full of lust, illicit sex, getting high, selfishly pleasing myself and hurting those arround me. I tried countless times to controll myself but always chosedo do that wich would bring my boy and heart more pleasure even at the expence of others. I searched the christian churches and neveound resolve. Even worse, the more I read tje bible was the more I found that suposid christians are not even practicing christianity. All of them indulged in the world, there sences and pleasing there selfish desires, the more I saw this the angryer I became. More so all my lifely efforts to acheave love and success would fail time and time again no matter how hard I tried. I eventualy, having no were else to direct it, I began blaming and hating God. How could He do this to me I thought to myself. Ive even prayed to satan in my efforts to acheave success and happyness. None of my efforts were successful. I became suicidal, pleagued with mental illness with a broken heart that stoped feeling or wanting anything. Everything is lost, including my soul. But then just a few days to a week ago something miraculouse happened. In my deep depression and darkness, seeking only a way to end this life I googled ”what really happens when we die?” and upcame the vadic teachings and hindue beiefe. When I was reading I did not realize this untill afterwards. someone was wanting to commit suicide and annother wasgiving vadic and hindu advice on what the spirit is, what happens when we die and othet things of. In it.he wrote the hare krishna mantra and advised him to recite it. Well, everything he was writing was making sence, giving me peace and hope within, the things he wrote even made some Christian sence, so needless to say.i recited it to myself and then it happemed , I.became filled with peace and joy, this world melted away, my mental ilness gone, my self controll boosted and I felt alive, the explination of karma made me accept my life as it was, the peace wore off, but when I would chant the.mantra, the peace would returne. Ever since I have been googlimg and researching the vedas.and the hindu faith. But now again I am in.conflict. I want to become a devotee, but I fear that I could be wrong and that Christ would dam me. More so I want to stop eating meat, put away my sexual desires and physical intoxications, but I am poor, I cannot buy new groceries till next month and all I have is meat. More so, I heavily smoke and find comfort in pleasing my sences with sweet drinks and am often afflicted with heart breaking memories of past loves that earge me to find a new love. And rite now I dont know what to do about all of this. Can you help me? I will check back on here daily. e

Okay. and yes I am sinceraly seeking answers to fallow. I am not aposed to reading these books but for some reason, maybe just how I am designed, I always seek well founded intelligent advice that can answer specifics so I have a foundation to build off of wich can only be done threw human contact. I will paste here that testimoney that was never responded to. Perhaps threw you God would be kind enough to grant me wisdome, understanding and peace. But a couple current questions before I paste this (letting you know outrite I eat no more meat, as of today I take no ferther part in illicit sex, I still do smoke ciggarets and badly want to quit them but dont know how to Draw on Gods strienths and I no longer gamble to the best of my knowladge and abulitu) 1) why has the peace of God left me? How can I get it back? Why is a man called lord? And what do the vedas teach about confusion? And, is it still possible to worshop Christ in hinduism? The last question I believe is yes as my studies show Christs teachings and vedic knowladge to be of the same accord. What is your opinion?
