Srila Prabhupada on Book Distribution

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Shrila Prabhupada!!!

Thank you so much for all these Prabhupada quotes on the importance of book distribution, it is most interesting how Prabhupada stressed book distribution above everything else, I know also Prabhupada said his books will do everything, also I found hearing book distribution stories from devotees is most enlivening and powerful, if you know where there is alot of nectar like that, that would be most awesome to share and also information of where Prabhupadas books are being distributed profusely at this time, ofcourse his unchanged ones, there is no doubt Prabhupada explained in great detail everything we need for our spiritual lives in his books and there is nothing comparable to Prabhupadas books, I must purchase them from you as soon as possible and somehow or other get back in to the fire of book distribution I once knew.

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Dandavats Madhuvisa,

All glories to Shrila Prabhupada. I just want to say I’m sorry if I’m not replying to you, it is nothing personal, I think you preach quite expertly mainly because of your faith in Shrila Prabhupada and everything he ever said and your very strictly following Prabhupada’s instructions so in other words I have no complaints or questions really, I find Prabhupada answers all my questions, I’ve been dedicated to him since at least 69, anyhow all glories to your service, I pray I’m not annoying you, please let me know if I am vancha kalpa!!! I’m just curiouse sometimes to read what you are saying, and it truly is very impressive to me really and it makes me very humbled to see someone obviously more advanced in such a compassionate preaching mood,it’s too bad there are not more devotees giving this opportunity to souls to hear from a disciple of Prabhupada like yourself who can preach in detail Prabhupada’s understanding really as far as I can see!!!!

Devotees Working Together in ISKCON?

Pamho Lokanatha prabhu,

I support your idea of reviving the iskcon Prabhupada intended it to be, let me know if you get any other supporters. Personally I believe it is possible if we have faith in Prabhupada’s instructions and the power of cooperating together to carry them out. The fact is Prabhupada said your love for me will be shown by your cooperating together for my mission and what was most displeasing to Prabhupada was devotees fighting, he always said the real solution to our disagreementswas doing Harinama together.. Anyhow I don’t really know where most of Prabhupada’s initiates are right now and I’m just seeing some very nice Prabhupadanugas every week or in two weeks, you know Damaghosa. But personally to me the only gauranteed way of restablishing Prabhupada’s mission in the west is arranging things just the way Prabhupada originally set it up with communities living in and around temples working together in cooperation. But I have to admire Damaghosa for maybe twenty years holding meetings for sincere Prabhupadanugas to attend. Maybe right now its not possible to get it like it was, but I really believe it is possible by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprubus and Prabhupadas mercy the only problem really is lack of faith in Shrila Prabhupada’s all perfect legacy he left of a moverments to examplyfly simple living and high thinking, just a few really qualified devotees, a small percentage of devottees on the planet could influence in a very positive way a large percentage of the human beings on the planet with the highest benediction of life. Prabhupada showed us the way by his utter faith in his gurus instructions to him, and his surrender to them as his life and soul. He founder Gaura’s movement worldwide, just one pure devotee can save a whole universe Prabhupada said so our real problem it seems is a lack of pure devotees, becausereally where everthere is an empowered representative of Lod Chaitanya you will find many nicevaishnas being made. Thats one thought but thank you very much prabhu for speaking out like this, I just wanted to offer my support to you. I was initiated by Prabhupada in 71 and ONLY BY pRABHUPADA PRAYING FOR ME i BELIEVE i’M STILL CHANTING AND SEEING MUCH BETTER DEVOTEES THAN MYSELF and its really an ocean of bliss, but still there is so few of us and almost every week, if only we could do what your talking about.All glories to Shrila Prabhupada and your service, we are eager to have really seriouse devotees of Prabhupada like your good self joining us, always the more themerrier but were all about just studying Prabhupada’s books together, kirtan and prasadamand trying to live sufficiently and closer to devotees.Anyway these things are going on mysteriously really, I don’t know whywe don’t have moredevotees comming we have about 12 devotees regurly meeting but its amasingly sweet and ecstaic for all of us every time…

“I am not this Body.” Easy to say…

Hare Krishna prabhus,

I need to make a correction from my last letter. No one should really think he is a disciple of Prabhupada unless they are chanting 16 rounds everyday and following the regulated principles and life style Prabhupada prescribed to us for our spiritual lives and indeed he promised those who stuck to those principles would go back to home back to Godhead after leaving their physical bodies. So, we definirtely can not take what he said cheaply but as soon as we are sincerely reading his books we are most definitely on the path Prabhupada said. The sad thing is we no longer have really Prabhupada centered temples with fired up devotees in them like there was when Prabhupada was phuysically present on this planet especially in the mid 60s to mid seventys and then we can see after he departed this world physically anyhow he remains with us as much as we please and follow him and we can practically percieve that just like Prabhupada said he never felt seperate from his guru. Anyhow presently like Madhuvisa prabhu most properly pointed out we can experience Prabhupada’s presense in his books and when we are linked to him by doing as he asks. But I beg that no one becomes discouraged at their inabilities, we don’t have really fired up Prabhupada here in america anyhow, there is the Bangalore temple that is practically doing more than any otherf Prabhupada centered temple ever did right now to prove what happens when Prabhupada is the center of our lives, even President Obama praised their prasadam distribution program in a letter that’s at the Bangalore website. But anyhow I am just begging as my sevice for no one to become discouraged, what ever we can do that Prabhupada recommended in the books, is a foward step back to Godhead which is never lost therefor,we need to just do what we can and gradually, very gradually we will be able to do more and more, but we should never give up at any rate like the sparrow who despite all impossible odds strived to get her eggs out of the ocean when they were blown away in a storm. It was only Garuda Lord Vishnu’s most confidential bird carrier that ultimately took compassion on the bird and threatened the ocean to return the birds eggs. So in this way we must just understand all the succcess in our lives rest on the most confidential servitor of God Shrila Prabhupada and just like that sparrow never give up our endeavor to get back our spiritual lives and souls for this is the only satisfaction for our souls to be fully engaged in the service of Shri Shri Guru and Gauranga!!!!
your fallen servant,

Hare Krishna prabhus,

I just wanted to make the comment that Madhuvisa is completely correct when he asks us to know that we have a spiritual master and there is no need for looking for another guru than Shrila Prabhupada. I have been dedicated to Shrila Prabhupada since 1971 and I am feeling his presense in my life more than ever before. We just need to try our best to do as Prabhupada asked us and we are his disciples. The fact is all Bonafide sampradayas preach that our guru never dies and lives forever in his instructions and with those persons who follow them, even those just trying to follow them and are having alot of difficulty of coming to the perfect standard. Simply because we have this human form of life now after traveling through countless bodies since time immemorial we have now achieved this greatest boon of a human form of life, therefor who ever we are, it is our duty in this human form of life, ETERNAL DUTY, to just dedicate our lives to understand and obey Shrila Prabhupada who no one can come close to on this planet, physically manifest, Shrila Prabhupada is our doubtless guru of the universe, Jagat Guru, so please I beg you all with straws in my mouth to surrender to his divine grace Shrila Prabhupada,

your eternal servant,

Pranams Madhuvisa prabhu,

Very nice explanation prabhu of the teachings of Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad-gita. You nicely explain how Krishna consciousness is a most practical way to take care of our body and soul. We don’t have to neglect our bodily needs niether can we. We need to gradually cultivate the knowledge from the Bhagavad-gita that our soul is us and therefor more important than our body so we must do what we can to keep our soul progressing back to Godhead. And Krishna definitely gives us practical instructions how to do that. Ultimately Prabhupada said the only hope for society as a whole is to be guided by a Krishna conscious national leader, in this way even very foolish people who just don’t care for spiritual life would also make agyata sukrti simply by cooperating with the Krishna conscious king or president. No one would be able to help but make very positive progress back to home back to Godhead.
This is part of the reason Prabhupada stressed mass book distribution and prasadam distribution. Because just a small part of the population becoming Krishna conscious could save the whole future of a nation.
So we desperately need such potent preachers that can convince very influencial people in society to become Krishna consciouse. Because people tend to follow such people like George Harrison did so much even though he wasn’t the strictness model of a ideal vaishnava.
So the power of Krishna conscious propaganda is like this when practiced in the form of public broadcasting of the philosophy and holy names of the Lord. When it is by a very famous person in society. So nothing we do in Krishna consciousness ever goes invane. So in this way we need to study the Bhagavad-gita to understand very scrutinisingly what progresses us on the spiritual path. Ultimately nothing is more potent than just repeating what Prabhupada preached to us. Most importantly the chanting should never stop for ourselves and others on the streets. And distributing Prabhupada’s books is the most powerful way of spreading Krishna’s names and Krishna consciousness.

your eternal servant,

    Hare krishna Prabhuji.,Dandvat Pranaam
    May i know about the author of the book”Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita As It Is” named mukund das prabhu.Had he any personal association with Srila Prabhupada.

    • This book is a compilation of direct quotes from Srila Prabhupada speaking about his own life. The author is Srila Prabhuapda, all Mukunda did was compile the quotes and he did a good job of it. He wrote a bit of rubbish on the last 2 pages but apart from that he did not write a single word in the book. It is a collection of Prabhupada quotes and the author of this book is Srila Prabhuapda.

    Prabhu Madhudvisa Dasa.Is Jagannath Krishna himself or is just an expansion of Krishna like Vishnu,Rama etc.In Iskcon lectures I heard that Jagannath is Krishna himself,they have proved this by saying a story from Skanda purana.Is this true or Iskcon lectures are just bogus?I found no video Prabhupad talking aboyt Lord Jagannath.Oh Prabhu kindly answer my doubts.Hare Krishna

    • Yes. Lord Jagannatah is Krishna Himself. It is Jagannatha [Krishna] Balarama and Krishna’s sister Subhadra.

      So Jagannatha is deity form of Krishna. He is representation of Krishna with His brother Balarama and sister Subhadra,

      It is deity manifestation of Krishna, Balarama and Lady Subhadra,

    Jai Govind

    I request you clear my doubts.I understand the complexities of life processes,cellular mechanisms and other natural phenomenon cannot be explained solely by reasoning and scientific theories as somewhere or other our knowledge is limited.I am a science student nd nature lover.After reading the article posted by you regarding the concept of the origin of life,a question arisen in my mind that krishna is all powerful,then, why he designed this universe in this complicated way?,why life originated? why he made all that dna etc matter space?what is his true nature? why are we given these bodies these reasoning abilities?why krishna waited for billions of years and made us take birth here?why prakrati and purush got seperated? who were those dinosaurs etc for souls are eternal were those dinosaurs primitive and other organisms we only? are there any planet lest earth having life?why will happen atlast for we are ultimately destined to reach our eternal govind? why doesn’t he appears now and clear all these doubts for one thing is sure that if even he messages in some ways we will submit to him?why krishna is so naughty why has he made everything complicated?I know these are childlish questions but still worthy to be answered…..

    I am a krishana devotee.I feel as if there is pure love for him deep in my heart.But at the same time I do believe in science.Sometimes i find myself stuck in between science emotions belief and devotion.I want to understand my Govind,I want to understand myself.

    I request my friends to please give answer to these questions.I hope i will get atleast answers of a few questions as i found this site quite appealing.

    Radhe krishna

    • Hare Krishna Jai Govind

      To clear your doubts you have to become Krishna conscious. Because unless you become Krishna conscious you will not be able to understand what Krishna consciousness is and you will remain continually bewildered.

      All these questions are irrelevant. You seem to accept that Govinda exists, that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Now you have to just surrender to the idea that you are His servant. And then you need to find out practically how you can engage in the service of Krishna. And to find out how to do this you need to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. And in the process of becoming Krishna conscious all your other questions will automatically be answered.

      The scientists can not understand anything. They only have very fragmental information about everything they study. The information we can gather through our material senses is very limited. There are so many things we can not perceive through our material senses. So they can not understand what they can not perceive.

      So instead of just speculating all these questions and being bewildered like this it is better to just admit that in our conditioned state with our very limited mind and our material senses we can not hope to understand Krishna or even this material world which is created ultimately by Krishna.

      The way to understand these things is to become Krishna conscious. We can not understand without becoming Krishna conscious.

      So you have to learn how to become Krishna conscious… That is the answer to all your questions. And Krishna consciousness is a science and that science is very elaborately presented in the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!
