Prabhuji last time i asked you about Bhagvatam and you got my doubts clear about that. thank-you. But also i want to ask what about the other books of Prabhupada like Gita for example. i have it but since you talked about changes in prabhupada books i have not trusted the gita the seond version of it fully. so now what can i do. someone gave that gita to me as i don’t have a way to receive devotional item or things on my own. plus what about prabhupada books in general. and how after reading all these articles about iskcon book changes including this ramesvara article can i receive(proper authorized and unadulterated guidance then) that matches prabhupada instructions without any question or doubt.

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. The old unchanged(Prabhupada’s words) version of Srimad Bhagvatam has only 10 cantos in it. The other two cantos(11 and 12) are they any version of them that are as authorized as Prabhupada’s other original version of 10 cantos or what is the case. I am a beginner in KC(since one year) and i want to be guided in the right(authorized and unadulterated direction) in KC. So it would be good if you can reply me clearing the doubts i present to you(at least about Srimad Bhagavatama if not more).
Thank-you for listening to me

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. That i understand that we should help both the poor and rich in spiritual knowledge and in krsna consciousness. and i never meant to say only the poor. but the poor are at a much more disadvantage than the rich. i mean sure we should help both the rich and poor in spiritual knowledge. But in the case of poor can’t we help them in basic necessities of life or should we help them along with krsna consciousness including feeding them i mean prasadam or no other food. sure in terms of prasadam we should give it to the rich. but when i mean helping the poor i mean helping them in basic necessities of life not just feeding them.
and i mean pure at a much more disadvatange than the rich in the practicing. or tell me otherwise.
sorry for asking something again but still if you can answer better or whatever reply you can as far as your knowledge and intelligence of krsna consciousness go.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. You said “So help them spiritually. Cook food, offer it to Krishna and feed them with Krishna prasadam. That helps them both spiritually and materially. Get them to read Srila Prabhupada’s books, get them to chant Hare Krishna, get them to offer obeisances to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna. This is our business.” If I or we as devotees preach Krishna Consciousness as you said of chanting Hare Krsna and reading srila prabhupada’s books and more can we also help the poor along with these by giving daily food as prasadam to person i know is poor and help them in terms of shelter by inviting him to stay with me and clothing along with preaching Krishna Consciousness or just stick to preaching Krishna Consciousness.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. One question my father said a long time ago and i bet still says and think that poverty is the worst thing in the world. I disagree with him. What do you say. I think forgetfulness of Krsna might be the worst thing not poverty as my father is saying. And when you said “As far as simply ignoring what the non-devotees say you have to understand that they are like animals. Dwi-pad-pasu, two-legged animals. ” Does that include about devotion and also about things like what is the worst thing in the world type of statements or sayings and more. what i am asking is to what extent should i ignore or just forget or hear it from ear and take it out the other with my parents being non-devotees.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. can you help me or find the article and give me the link. the article name is “The Real Brahmacari” before the site design changed. it was like this Browse>Home/Devotees/ The Real Brahmacari. it was i think some person called madhsudana dasa wrote it.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa. You said “if you surrender to Srila Prabhupada and follow his instructions like chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra daily and strictly following the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and read Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day.
Along with these three things is cooking for Krishna also important, i mean as important as these three things you mentioned. and for cooking should i just start straight away from recipe book having the ingredients plus setting the kitchen standards you mention in the article how to offer food. or should i observe my mother cooking for a time being.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa . sorry for writing a post like the one i last wrote on this article. but i was still expressingf my feelings and just trying to be at peace with what you said. Anyways no matter what we both said to each other. i will do my best in following whatever you say that i should do or just do in asking questions and like that also. Please know this and don’t stop telling me what i should do and what i to do when i ask you questions. Please
Thank-you for listening and thank-you for following my request too in the future for you to tell me what to do and what i should do whether i ask you questions or not.

okay i never said what you are saying is wrong. i know that what you say is never wrong always right.
And why are you saying that not to ask you questions unless i have faith that you will give me the right answers. i don’t know what is your good intention in telling me this. please tell me.
i am just not happy or not feel good hearing this that i should not ask you the questions unless i have faith that you will give me the right answers. i mean why.
what i was saying was i could not be happy with what you said about smiling and agreeing with them quietly as if they were right and move on. i mean if they say something that they are wrong i cannot agree with them. is there more to this you said about agreeing. if some non-devotee comes to you and say something about devotion and you know it to be wrong would you agree with him if you know him to be wrong. okay please answer what this mean. why is right to do that.
Even Vibhishan who was Ravana own brother did not agree with Ravana unlike other people in his administration merely not to agitate him that about him kidnapping Mother Sita and not returning her back to Lord Rama.
So why do you think it is okay for me to quietly agree with them. Please don’t ever tell me to not ask you questions with statements like “What I am saying is right and you should not be asking me questions unless you have faith that I can give you the right answers.” or unless you have faith that my answers can be beneficial or something like that.
And i was like that because it made me feel tense about what you were saying right also but i had doubts because i still cannot swallow what you said about agreeing with them quietly and plus in my mind the angry emotion or thing where i could not agree and deep down guilt. so this was a dilemma
this was the tenseness i was talking about. i mean i could not agree with this and plus not fully getting the answer.
anyways i don’t know i am still unable to explain about that tenseness. please do reply to this post i am sendingnow no matter what. i leave the result i will get from you of this post i am sending to krishna.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. in kali yuga there is a example the sex impulse seems so prevalent that some general public reads books like kama sutra and all. i mean i saw it in the barnes and noble book store. i mean americans only reading materialistic aspect of indian literature.

By the way i did my first test of the four tests for the whole semester in microeconomics. and in the test if i get 30 out 35 right. i get a hundred. but i got 35 out of 35. although i did one wrong and he marked my answer as right answer by mistake and one question he said he will everyone credit since it was not discussed and in notes. so i got that wrong but he was still going to give credit. so after class i checked with him and got credit for this question i mentioned and the some other two questions i did right but he marked wrong. and plus i told him that he marked on answer right by mistake and he said that is okay. andi got 35 out of 35 questions right and a hundred percent.
plus when my father was talking about kicking me out it was because his job is line. he got lik three to four months at the time i said it. he said it the day afyer i wrote that mail that he might throw me. althoughstill after some time that subsided and my mother was like very nice despite my being not so good. they sort of calmed down on this throwing out and just nicely explaining me to take responsibility and more.
but today i got my grade.

i read the reply to the post i sent you about my mother burning book and all that in the present today. and seems like quietly accepting my parents view on devotion is madness or not very right or seems the right thing. i mean i cannot smile and just agree with them. of course i am not going on the offensive. what i mean is preaching am not preaching but i still have to stand on what is right. i mean cannot agree with they say blindly just merely not to agitate them. if they are agitated because i don’t agree with them notmy fault. they fault. they should be knowledgeable when speaking about it.
]okay i don’t know why am saying all this in the present. they is no situation like that even close to throwing books.
but right now this reading your reply has made me feel upset tense. maybe because you are right but i am also right in a sense as to not blindly accept what they say especially when i don’t go bothering them.so i feel tense as to what is right really.

Hare Krsna prabhuji. you are absolutely right. i realize very directly or more directly than ever about Krsna consciousness especially through your hungry man example.
And i just asked this question of disease because the thing is especially for mental disorder which is bipolar disorder or whatever i think that i don’t need medicine because two things 1. i am being told that this medicine is to be taken unless they is a cure in the future(since i am doing good but i don’t think medicine is helping me do good or whatever) and i don’t think how can they be a cure of the subtle or the mind thing.2 since it is a mental disorder and to be honest in a sense i think it is all about the emotions.
to be honest i don’t believe if i have bipolar disorder or what not. i mean sure at time the symptoms or the episode of being extremely manic or exited in one second and being depressed the another manifested in me but it was because of my emotions in life about things and emotions/or state of mind. so i think mental disorder is all based on state of mind and emotions. plus it is about lifestyle also. like if i sleep late or sleep little or what more.
anyways what do you say about this medicine thing. according to your knowledge and level of intelligence. do you think they will be a time when i will or really can be of this or just medicine in general especially mental disorder. if i progress in krsna consciousness
you are right about being transcendental to material body situation and i agree. i agree so much that i feel i would like to be of medicine when the right time comes.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. when you said
“If you just surrender and do these things that will solve all your problems and answer all your questions and you will become Krishna conscious. And that is what I suggest you do. That is always what I will suggest you do. And if you do it that will be wonderful for you. But if you don’t do it then I really can not help you further. This is the medicine that will cure your material disease but if you refuse to take the medicine then your disease is not going to get cured.”
did you mean by disease of any kind both physical, mental or the disease(disease which is associating with maya ) going to go away that is all i want to ask.
and plus i am endeavouring to do saddhana bhakti. i would not say very sincerely or even sincerely but i am.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. What in the world did i do to deserve from you not to answer any of my questions. pleasee tell me what is my offense or crime against you. i asked you what can i do about addiction like any type of adddiction.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. My father has put what he has called in engish forewarning that if i did not do good in one course i took which is microecomics this semester he will throw me out the house since he won’t see me progress towards independence. i did not like this. i spoke very much against it and said i am going out nowhere. i am not going to care about this or don’t want to but should i do about this. you said i can get a job and rent your own place somewhere. but i am not right now that capable at least not on my own without personal guidance.
and i was going to say yesterday but let me tell you. for you it is easy to say. i don’t think your parents gave you that tough of a time in life. things is really the worst ever. i was going smoothly until now despite everything but this is worst.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa. i want to tell you of a event my mother being angry at me for some small things and in general in life in life that are not seeming in order. She always tells me that she will or would at some time burn the devotional books i have in anger. and today she literally in angry threw four books or more soft bound and the one of them have been damagged little severely and one hard book of volume out of 30 volumes i have gotten really damaged like dented on the side since it is hardbound. plus she also threw the mala and the bead bad.
Prabhuji what can i do. how should i respond to this. i feel very angry at this what to do. i really got them from people and she gets angry and throw the books. i know i am not really krsna conscious as of present. maybe a drop worth of devotee but still does my mother not sinnned or done the like one of the worst offense ever.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa i got your recipe book you sent to me. but i am still unsure as to how to make food. seems very difficult i have never cooked. and today i asked my mother if she can help me cook the foofd according to the recipe and she says she does not know how to cook anything without inion or garlic. i had argument and all shouting about why can’t she help me learn the cooking i want without onion and garlic so please help me. i feel very worse how can i cook. i havee never. and i feel if i cook just merely looking at the recipe it would be a disaster please help me so that i can personally know how i can cook.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji are the books of prabhupada even though BBT print them like Easy journey to other planets and elevation to krsna consciousness that i brought from krishnastore or krishnastore.com original and unedited.

You have really made it easy by giving me the answer which as to what are the actions/things i should do like chanting 16 rounds daily, following four regulative principles strictly and reading prabhupada books at least 1-2 hours a day. and telling me that everything else including my questions are irrelevant. thank-you for making things easy. i won’t have to be worried and tense as i seem to be over questions i have.
but the hard part is starting to do and doing them. I mean i have act upon it instead of thinking about doing it and not having started and more.
you are right. you cannot be any right is what i am saying. Plus i am the one that has to perform the actions whatever you said to do as stated above.
» Posted By Avikam Mittal On September 17, 2013 @ 4:43 pm
Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. How can i start chanting 16 rounds immediately it will take some time. and plus if people are getting food and all just because of pious deeds or actions in the past then what about the coming time where it will gradually come to a point where they will be no rain and people will only eat meat instead of vegeatables in kali yuga. how does things come to that externally. so they people would not get their pious actions rewarded but instead punished for sinful actions.
anyways it seems questionable then what of the coming time where things will be much worse than now as i stated about people only eating meat and no rain.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Is investing in stock market a gambling thing. if not in certain cases like for example long term investment then please say.
And one more thing is watching television bad for krsna consciousness. and plus how can i stop my addiction of television or even watching television at all.
And how come people get food and all the things like rain amd more from Krsna or his agents the Demigods when 99.9% is naradharma not devotees plus they don’t even perform yagnas or any sacrifice. not that i am not compassionate. it is still a very great mercy of krsna but still.

Yes okay. But should i bath in the really hot water or not as it not good for the body or the mind. i mean i feel good of the hot water but still not know if it is advisable. i mean like food if you eat food of the mode of passion and ignorance you are in that mode. so what type of water will be in the mode of goodness to bath in. i am just wanting to know even of the external things like food and all because of the mode of goodness.

Hare Krsna prabhuji. Of all the books of Prabhupada which one should i read Gita or the other books. in my case fro now i have got 1972 Gita or the original Bhagvatam which i got today. i am so thrilled with getting Bhagvatam. okay should i read Gita before reading Bhagvatam right.
» Posted By Avikam Mittal On September 14, 2013 @ 4:48 pm
Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji what type of water should take bath from at all times or at different times if one takes different types of water at different times. i do take bath in hot especially really hot water. but i seem to like it. is it bad taking bath in really hot water.
And i feel very strong urge in engaging in eating a lot. i mean in my case seems like i crave eating. like i get hungry/and/or feel eating like all the time or want to eat more. what can i do. i think it might be the side effect of a medicine i might be taking for bipolar disorder. not sure if it really is anyways what can i do about this hunger/eating problem.

Hare Krsna prabhuji you are right about using everything for krishna including violence but still the idea of using violence seem muddy. sure like you said it is not like we will on purpose go to the jungle to test if he will protect us. but life is uncertain just to add to it. and i still seem very confused. On the one hand Krishna protected his devotees Like Haridas thakur and especially Prahlada Maharaj which comes in my head a lot as an example of tolerance of in life. and in a sense i have come to undestand(i don’t know if i am correct right now) but if Prahlada Mahraj can tolerate his father killing him many times why cannot we even though krishna protected.( i mean i am not saying that krishna will protect us like he did to Prahlada maharaj but still). and on the other hand devotees like Jesus Christ and Prabhupada killed so what then. So as far as i seem to understand is you can be protected from Krishna when someone is attempting to kill you while and just you are worship Krsna or you can die worshiping Krishna.
okay but i feel you are right when you say we can use everything for krishna but still seems like they is a line. i mean if you are not a kstriya or have the kstriya mentality why would you use violence. although protecting and defending other devotees i can step in to save them (if violence on my part is necessary then sure) but using violence when attcked myself. i mean i still remember prahlada maharaj’s example and still i remember what Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhuji said about being tolerant than a tree and humbler than a straw on the street.
