2012 — The End of the World?

ur newsletters are most helpful in involking a keen desire to know the unknown. About the doomsday, i think there has been misinterpretations. Dec 2012 is supposed to bring in a period where man would be instrumental in deciding his own fate in future.Either he continues to devastate nature until his own destruction or realise his folly and correct himself so that he can live. So some natural disaster is prophesised on a mass scale which will make man rethink as to how he is spoiling mother nature. But this would only serve as a warning and so is not the end of the world as is being projected.
Anyway, end of the world should not invoke any fear in us who are true devotees of god bec it simply means liberation from all miseries. So a doomsday or death prediction should anyway not affect true beleiveres of god in any way!

Human Life is not for working hard like animals

Congratulations again for a nice article which brings another brewing topic of endless useless unwanted competition in work place and in life in general.In this fast paced life, we forhet to take a deep breath for ourself leave alone think about krisna cosnciousness! that is what we ve become. But it is not impossible to cultivate working in krshna cosnciuoness as krisn aspekas about in the gita. As a doctor, i see every patient that comes to me as my guru in that form. That makes me more responsible for that patient and feel sorry if i ve not pleased him Still a large no of times, i forget that position and end up getting irritated when working for long hours, end up scolding some patients when they dont cooperate and so forth!iam trying to bring the consciousness to the level where it is involuntary and effortless as mere breathing….till then i will ve accept the small failures where i forget him at work and take resposnibility to myself to whatever iam doing good or bad…. still i would like clarifiation on this point, while we work with that sense, if we end up harming somebody unintentionally, should we hold ourselves responsible or should we take it as his wish to cause harm to that person thru us? do we ve to suffer for those actions?

The Power of the Disciplic Succession, Guru Parampara

yes, i agree that the discpic succession is lost amidst our so called intelligence and maturity. As a child we accept what is given to us. either we like it or dislike it. its as simple as that. but when we grow mature and lose our innocence to intelligence gained thru books, we gradually practise suspicion about what is given to us by whom, is it good/bad, and then keep judging ebverything and everybody based on our assumptions…. I think right when we break free of the womb, we are losing contact with god and there starts our journey to self independence, which is against accepting others opinions and thoughts.
though i agree that a guru is required to give u self realisation, i feel the thoughts and desire to know the very same comes from god… Like he says, he is the seed of every thought in every mind… Arjuna was free to ask his questions in this sysytem bec these questions were not meant to test the guru but to dispel doubts in our own minds. so while it is neccessary to accept what the guru says, we re free to clear our doubts and have diff opinions… if we re wrong he will make sure we re corrected.. that is the grace of the guru!As the disciple seeks the guru, it is also true that the guru seeks the disciple also….. though i ve not been able to meet my guru sai baba in person, i ve experienced him in several incidents where he has helped me, guided me… i know he is there with me…. but yet, i ve this strong desire to sit in front of him and talk to him, sing and dance with him..feed him…and clear certain doubts.. its strange… but i want this to happen at least in my dreams…..kindly pray that this happen soon and he maifests himself as i want in my dreams.. since iam too naive to see him in my awake state… my consciouness has not risen to that level….Hare ram hare krishna.

    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!

      Madhudvisa dasa
