Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa,

I had a little trouble replying to your comment, so I just want to inquire as to whether my reply went through, containing the questions for my interview.

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa,

I am sorry if I offended you or Krishna Consciousness in any way; thank you very much for clarifying. I would still like to ask you a few questions. Feel free to elaborate as much as you would like, or to correct any misgivings or incorrect information on my part. 1.) How do you (and Krishna Consciousness devotees in general) view varnasrama and carry it out, especially in today’s modern world? Do you find any day to day difficulty in this, living in such a chaotic and hectic society? 2.) How were you first introduced to the Krishna Consciousness? Through word of mouth, texts? What were your initial thoughts on it and the philosophy? Have they differed in any way after reading the texts and becoming a devotee? How has it impacted your life as a whole, spiritually? 3.) Are there any certain passages or texts within the Bhagavad Gita that speak the most to you in your own life? 4.) Do you find that individuals of different philosophies or religions are tolerant or accepting of Krishna Consciousness and can fit it into their own lives or belief systems? In other words, is Krishna Consciousness beneficial to any individual who reads the texts and truly comes to know their meaning and power, regardless of background or belief? How tolerant are the beliefs of Krishna Consciousness toward other philosophies and belief systems? 5.) In what ways do Krishna and Krishna Consciousness devotion take place in everyday life in the modern world. How can the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita be put into action each day? (Advice to someone just learning about Krishna Consciousness) 6.) If there are any other beliefs or core teachings that are important for one to understand about Krishna Consciousness, please feel free to add them. I would love to learn more. . Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my questions. I am sure they will allow me a greater understanding of Krishna Consciousness and how Krishna and the Bhagavad Gita can make a large impact in my life! I will be anticipating the next newsletter! Hare Krishna!

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa,

I have signed up for the newsletter and I find it quite informative. I’ve just recently begun to learn about the Hindu religion and way of life and I feel as though a deep understanding of the Bhagavad Gita is key to this. I have begun to chant Hare Krishna on japa beads and have benefited greatly. I am also taking a class at my school related to Hindu beliefs and I was wondering if you and I could have a quick email interview (about five questions) regarding some of the major points of Hindu devotion and Krishna consciousness. This would mean a great deal to me and it would also give me a better understanding of being a devotee. Whatever you choose, I respect your wishes and will continue chanting and reading the newsletters.

Thank you and Hare Krishna.

“I am not this Body.” Easy to say…

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa, and I would like to humbly thank you once again for taking the time to answer my questions. I truly appreciate it.
Also, I own one of Swami Prabhupada’s books presently and enjoy it very much and hope to obtain The Bhagavad Gita As It Is very soon. And of course, I always look forward to the newsletters.
Hare Krishna!

Hare Krishna, Madhudvisa dasa

For some reason, I can’t post a comment on the Spirit of the Bhagavad Gita page, so I am typing it here. I had trouble typing a reply to your comment on the other page and would just like to know if you received the message including the questions I would like to ask. If not, I’ll be happy to type them here. Thank you!

    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!
