God’s Not Dead — A Christian Movie Review

Srila Prabhupada Padma Vakya (for the benefit of the readers)

December 29, 1972, Bombay
Bhagavad-gita 13.1-2
“You’ll find old men, those who are not spiritually inclined, they’re very morose. Morose because they cannot use anymore the senses. They sometimes take medicine. But how it can be done.”

December 29, 1973, Los Angeles
Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.16.1
“Cow protection is very, very essential in human society because it gives the milk, the miracle food. You can prepare hundreds and thousands of preparation, all not only delicious, but brain-maintaining. You can get good brain.”

December 29, 1974, Bombay
Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.26.20
“If we have little faith that we require awakening of spiritual consciousness, we should not sleep under the spell of this material consciousness… A little faith will help us.”

The Science of God

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

Thankyou very much for replying.I was awaiting eagerly.
You are right.Indeed these were obtuse questions
It brought a smile on my face when you wrote those starting comments.

I just need to become busy in Krsna consciousness as much as possible
everyday as you suggest and eventually everything will be revealed.

I have been listening to one of the lectures by Prabhupada repeatedly
again and again…it is never boring to hearing anything transcendental
repeatedly…and in that lecture he says that (it is not an exact quote)
…”If you want to get a notion of what the spiritual world is like then you
should scrutinizingly study the material world…”

I guess he says that because the material world is a reflection of the
spiritual world but perverted in nature.

so sometimes I try to apply the above to my daily material experiences
and try to understand what it would mean spiritually but I am not an
expert and so it is no that clear how the same would appear in the
spiritual world with Krishna at the centre.

Reading and hearing prabhupada books and lectures has instilled a
craving for knowing about what is beyond our material world
so much so that sometimes the basic understanding of the material world
becomes lacking.

Thankyou once again with your much awaited reply.
It inspires me to become more and more engaged in practical
services of Krishna consciousness.

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

In the above article it is mentioned that :

“God is absolute. Absolute means there is no difference.
Just like, in the relative world, this is relative world.
Material world means relative world.
Relative world means the son.
As soon as I say the son, there must be a father.
As soon as I say friend, there must be another man, friend.
As soon as I say water, there must be something as water.
But in the absolute world, the name “water” and the water is the same.
This is called ‘absolute.’
No different separation.
So in the Kingdom of God, God is God, and His son is also God.”

Absolute means the name “water” is the same as water.
Does it apply to everything ?
How is the son also GOD because the jiva can never become God.
Also how would you explain relativity in the material world ?
Is Einstein’s Theory of Relativity pointing to the same realtivity that is talked about here.
(ofcourse i dont understand that theory but just asking)

Does the jiva also become absolute in the spiritual world ?
But I request you to explain a little more elaborately
what is absolute truth and what is relative truth ?
is there anything like absolute falsehood ? relative lies ?

Thankyou for all your enlightening responses !

Hare Krishna !

There is more than the Material Energy…

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

In the above article it is stated that :

“Therefore real liberation entails surrender by the living entities to Your control, and that surrender will make them happy. In that constitutional position only can they be controllers.”

In what sense does the living entity become a “controller” in the liberated position ?

Finding someone who understands Krishna is VERY rare

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu !

I was reading an article by Srila Prabhupada in which he mentions the following :

There is no question of sacrifice, but sacrifice means to give up the
doggish mentality that “I am the Lord, I am God, I am the enjoyer.”

Now what I didn’t understand is that why does Srila Prabhupada consider as
doggish mentality the attitude of “I am the enjoyer” ???

your comments will be very appreciated.

Thankyou
Hare Krishna !

A fish is just a fish…

Hare Krishna MadhudvisaPrabhu,

You said that if it is my destiny in this life to be a millionaire then I will become one without having to work very hard for it.

But my destiny in this life is shaped by the activities in the past of this life and past lives.So if I work very hard in this life then I might become a millionaire in the future life.Is that correct ?

What are the examples in material world of good activities and bad activities?
If a beggar is begging money and if I give him some then am I being a good person and is it a good act ?

I think the law of karma is very complex and sometimes it can be very bewildering to understand how it works ?

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

I recently came across this on the Internet.
I request you to find some time to respond to this.

“””
I would like to narrate an incident that took place with me: I was reading the Gita in my college library in the evening hours when one of my professors noticed me and said to me, “People who are frustrated with life or who do not have the guts to face the cut throat competition in today’s world, only they go to the temple to beg for someone’s mercy. You won’t do well in academics if you start doing this stuff at this age.”

I was so astonished at his statement that I broke out in tears then and there. I know that the professor is certainly wrong, but his words disturbed me that whole night.

I need your review, Prabhu. Can’t we devotee children withstand and excel in today’s competitive world? Personally, I desire material gain because after all I am going to offer my results to Krishna. So, will Krishna help me?

I am desperately waiting for your reply.
“”””””

Hare Krishna MadhudvisaPrabhu,

If Krishna is unlimted and infinite and we are limited and finite in every respect then how is it possible for us to conceive of Krishna ever ? We as jivas will always fall short of realizing HIM and since Krishna is ever expanding with HIS unlimited energies there will never be a time when we can know HIM fully.What I mean to say is that there will always be something about Krishna that we dont know and is this lack of knowledge termed “spiritual ignorance” ?

Why is it said that the jiva in its pure state is full of knowledge and bliss when it is finite in existence ?

In the spiritual world in association of Krishna is it possible for the jiva to become infinte if Krishna empowers the jivas ?

Is the Universe a Computer Simulation? — The Nature of Reality

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhuji,

One question for you.

Are the jivas and the spiritual worlds and material worlds stil
emanating from the body of krishna and will continue endlessly or is it
that krishna has manifested everything that is possible for HIM ?

Who is the predominating deity of the “Earth” Planet ?
Are the predominating deities living entities(jivas) and are they pure devotees of the Lord?

Just what is Samadhi?

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

I read the following in an article on another Hare Krishna website.
—————————————————————————
The truth is that Krsna is the only male, and His potencies are all female.
In the material world one individual soul is the enjoyer and another individual soul is the enjoyed.
The truth is that it is not possible for one individual soul to be the enjoyer of another individual soul. All individual souls are meant to be enjoyed, and Lord Krsna is the only enjoyer.
—————————————————————————
Are there no “Males” in the spiritual world ??
And if there are males then can and do they enjoy with females ?
Is there no “SEX” in the spiritual world ?

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

How does one enter the state of “Samadhi” ?
How does one get out of it ?
And while one is in “Samadhi” what does one experience?
Is it possible to perform activities while one is experiencing trance ?

Are all liberated souls in the spiritual world in “Samadhi ?

Hare Krishna !

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu !

Prabhuji,I am still confused about the definition of Sin.
I have been hearing on TV from Muslim and Christian Preachers about
the concept of “Original Sin”.Is there anything about “Original Sin” in Krishna Consciousness?

What are the different sinful activities that one performs in day to day activities even when we are chanting?
For e.g. we might be chanting while walking and killing many tiny insects etc.is that also sinful?

In Bhagavad-Gita Krishna says that if we cook for ourself then it is sinful.But eating is the most basic need everyday.Then why is it considered sinful?The animals perform the 4 activities then why is not a sin for them?

I intuitively know that sinful activities are bad because it will bring suffering in future.But it seems very difficult to avoid them.
Is it because the time on this planet is kaliyuga that forces us to commit sinful activites ?

Even if we are in the material mode of goodness is there a possibility to commit sin? or sin is possible only in the lowers modes of nature?

I appreciate that killing,rape,cheating is bad but is it also sinful ?
Then did Arjuna commit Sin on the battlefield of Kuruksetra by killing?
When God kills is HE also sinning but is not affected because HE is almighty and very very powerful ?

Are evil persons sinful because they are evil ?
What is evil ?And when one commits sinful activity why is there no immediate bad reaction so that it will be a lesson for others not to commit such a crime or sin?

Is sin like crime ?I mean how does the system of Karma work ? good or pious activities bring good or pious reactions and bad or sinful activities bring suffering ? where are the reactions stored and how do they and when i mean how much time it takes for them to fructify ?

Do we commit sin by thought,speech,physical action or by all of them ?
is sin possible only in the material world and there is no sin in the spiritua world ? then how did we fall from the spiritual world if sin is not possible there ?If there is heavy flooding rains,earthquake or tsunamis caused by demigods then are they committing sin ? or they are authorised to do so and hence not affected ?

Are there different degrees of sinful activities ?

People are suffering from so many diseases and now there is a huge pharmaceutical industry producing thousands of medicines and doing great business thus minting money but the people are still not happy.

I am into pharmaceutical business and form what i have learnt is that they are coming out with newer and newer medicines and increasing prices that it has become a basic need as if we wont be able to live without them.and there are doctors who say that diseases like diabetes and others cannot be cured and hence one will have to keep on taking medicines until one dies.
Is there no cure for diseases so that people will be healthy and happy and live for many years?

Are diseases due to sinful activities ?

I think living in the material world is a very harsh propostion because there are so many problems that weigh you down that keeping a smile on you face and being happy continously is very rare indeed ! I can see people around very frustrated and resorting to smoking cigareetes and alcohol and chewing tobacco just so that they can be happy but is that also happening by GOD’s
plan or we are at fault becuase we are making wrong choices ?

I have read in prabhupada’s books that spiritual life is like a razor’s edge ,even a small mistake can be detrimental so that just puts off many persons to take it up seriously ?

There are many questions regarding getting a clarity of what is sinful and what is not but I would be very grateful if you can shed some light on it.

Thankyou\Brijesh Dani.

The Symptoms of a Self-Realized Person

Hare Krishna Prabhuji.

According to prabhupada’s books the souls in the material world are
considered to be “conditioned” souls.

What does “conditioned” souls mean ?

I recently came across this prabhupada padma vakya on http://www.harekrsna.com :

June 5, 1974, Geneva
Morning Walk
“Mahatma is not independent. He is also conditioned.
So first of all, we must understand that our natural position is to be conditioned.”

If i am not understanding it wrongly then what prabhupada is saying is that
the “Mahatma” or the liberated souls are also “conditioned” souls.

Then what is the difference between “conditioned” souls in the material world
and the “conditioned” souls i.e the liberated souls of the spiritual world ?

I looked up the meaning but it means several things.

I will be very grateful if you can clarify on this.

Hare Krishna.

The Importance of Sense Control in Spiritual Life

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhuji !

In the above comment you state that the soul is “trapped” within the material body.
Can you explain how the soul is trapped inside the material body ?

Because I see people enjoying materially and they seem to give the impression that they
are really free and having a good time.
Of course there is lot of suffering also but the people around me seem to care very less about genuine spiritual life and everyone is intoxicating meat eating and sex-life and gambling and only interest is in earning as much money as possible and enjoying materially.

Nobody seems to have any regrets about living materially except when there is suffering people tend to question “why me” .

And how much freedom is there in spiritual life as opposed to material life that it becomes attractive to people to take it up seriously ?

Thankyou.

Jayananda Dasa – A Modern Saint

We don’t care if anyone agrees with us. We push on.

Hare Krishna

I found the following from another Hare Krsna website.
Thought I would share it with others.

———————————————————————————————————————-
No Question of Failure in Krishna Consciousness

Srila Prabhupada’s Letter to Mukunda das, 15 November 1968.

“It doesn’t matter, let us grow slowly but surely. Let us try our best to spread this Krishna Consciousness movement with sincerity. And Krishna will give us all facilities. After all, it is Krishna’s business. We are simply servitors. Our sincere desire is to serve Him and this is our bona fide position.

Krishna says that we should give up all engagements and be seriously in Krishna Consciousness and surrender unto Him. We believe in this philosophy and we try to follow the principles and we instruct others also to follow the same path. That is our bona fide position. We are representative of Krishna because we present Krishna’s order as it is. And therefore we are bona fide representative.

If somebody inquires whether we are as good as Krishna, the reply is that it does not matter. We may not be as good as Krishna, and that is also not possible anyway. Krishna is great and we are minute particles. So how we can become as good as Krishna? This is false theory of the Mayavada philosophers. But we sincerely serve Krishna, we are sincere servants of His Lordship, and we present things as presented by Krishna, and that is the test of our bona fide position and our bona fide presentation.

So don’t be worried, do your best and success or failure does not matter. Krishna is absolute, so there is no such thing as success or failure in Krishna Consciousness, or in other words, there is no question of failure in Krishna Consciousness, whatever we do it is success. Whatever one may do in the material world, if he is even Rockefeller, it is all failure, defeat, because it will not exist beyond this body. He does not know that next life “I may be dog or cat.”

But whatever service we can do for Krishna, even if somebody is not able to execute fully Krishna Consciousness, whatever amount of service he does it never goes in vain. It will eternally remain. And it will act. Even somebody does small amount of service, and not even very willingly, still, he is assured to get human body in next birth, and chance to execute some service further.

So there is no question of failure in Krishna Consciousness. It is only success. Krishna says, “My devotee is never vanquished.” So we must try sincerely, that’s all.”

Death – The Ultimate Philosophy

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu

While discussing about Death and this article with my colleague at work
she was asking that – why is it that we dont remember about our previous
lives ? I don’t know if that question holds any significance but remembrance
about our past lives would have convinced everyone that there is a soul
within the body and survives death of body ?!

I have read in Prabhupada’s books wherein he says that forgetfulness is
the nature of the soul then my question is that – if the living entity is infintesimal
and prone to forgetfulness about so many things then isn’t it possible that
we can forget even krishna even though we may continue in bhakti for
millions of years ?

What causes forgetfulness ? I mean I experience more forgetfulness than others
around me,so I get the feeling that is it also due to bad karma that I am
experiencing more forgetfulness than others ?

The Cobbler & The Brahmana

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

In the above story,when Narada Muni went to the Vaikuntha planets, he fulfilled their request
and asked Narayana (God) about the salvation of the brahmana and the cobbler,
and Narayana replied, “After leaving this body, the cobbler shall come here to me.”

“What about the brahmana?” Narada asked.

“He will have to remain there for a number of births. I do not know when he is coming.”
Narada Muni was astonished, and he finally said, “I can’t understand the mystery of this.”
—————————————————————————————————————————–

Only just curious since the Lord knows past,present and future
what is to be interpreted of HIS statement above that ,

“He will have to remain there for a number of births. I do not know when he is coming.”

why does Lord Narayana say “I do not know…” ?
Is it to be interpreted as a very very long time ??

probably a silly question but just a doubt…

That is your body, but who are you?

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

2 questions for you.

1) It is a well-known fact that life and death are pre-decided by the Supreme Lord.
I would like to know that when life and death are already decided by the Lord,
how do people get killed by accidents, murders etc., which are untimely death?

2) Does the spirit soul exist as a person ( meaning human shaped ) before falling
into material illusion and obtaining one of 8.4 million physical shapes?
It is really an amazing 1/10,000th the tip of a human hair in size?

Prabhuji,your answers will be eagerly awaited !

Serving Srila Prabhupada Across the Generations

“In the spiritual world there is only service and the receiving of service. There is only sevya, seva, and sevaka-the person served, the process of service and the servant. These three items are completely spiritual, and therefore the spiritual world is called absolute.”

(Srimad Bhagavatam 5.5.19)

wouldn’t that be true for the material world also ?

Study Shows People Who Sleep 8 Hours Die Sooner than those who Sleep Less

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

I recently read a Prabhupada quote :

December 21, 1966, New York
Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya 20.313-317
“Always remember that this Krsna consciousness is a sort of declaration of war with this illusory material nature. So there is war. She will always try to get you fall down.”

My question is why does material nature try to get us to fall down which i am also experiencing in my practical life….the more i am attracted to krishna consciousness the more i am also attracted to the allurements of the material energy???

The Genes, Cloning and the Soul

Dear Madhudvisa Prabhu,

As you said that the soul in the conditioned state is not even in control of this body.
My question is that when the soul becomes liberated, is the soul able to
control his spiritual body?
and it is said that the soul has more freedom and independence in the liberated state then what is the meaning and scope of this freedom ?

thanks a lot for all the enlightening answers

Kali Yuga, The Problems and the Solution

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

Recently I came across this statement from Srila Prabhupada on Sampradaya Sun :

“The world is miserable for the materially infected person, but for a devotee the
entire world is as good as Vaikuntha, or the spiritual sky.”

It is a very bewildering statement.
what i did not understand was how can this world be vaikuntha when there is so
much of suffering in this world.
The current age on planet earth is Kali-yuga and 99% of people on this planet are
performing sinful activities.

It is indeed difficult to grasp the vision of a pure devotee of the Lord.

It would be very nice of you if you can explain what Prabhupada really means.

Thanking you.

Prabhupada’s ISKCON–How It Was Destroyed

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

Please accept my humble obeisances.All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Thankyou very much for giving replies to my questions.

Prabhuji,in the material world it is the law of karma that governs the
activities of the conditioned souls.And if it is perfectly acting then
there is no scope of “INJUSTICE” in the material world.
Everyone is enjoying and/or suffering due to the karmic reactions
that they deserve.

Then why do we often get the feeling that there is injustice being
done to us ?

Moreover,according to the vedas one type of miseries is due to
the living entities.Now if someone becomes jealous of me and then
due to malice decides to harm me then is that also due to karma ?

The pandavas and jesus christ and so many other pure devotees
suffered so much due to envy of other living entities.is that also due
to karmic reactions ?

yada yada hi dharmasya …..this verse from the Bhagavad-Gita says that
the LORD descends to the material world when there is corruption of
dharma…is the adharma also due to karmic reactions ?

as you title this article…Prabhupada’s ISKCON-how it was destroyed ?
is that also due to karma ? or that there is misuse of independence which
makes one get trapped in the web of karma and karmic reactions ?

i dont know if i am being able to get across the point to you but what
essentially i am asking is that if what everyone is getting is due to karma
then one cannot get out of it without an external out of the world force which
will make a difference.

And that force is probably the “mercy” of a pure devotee of the LORD.

Thankyou Prabhuji for finding time to answer these questions.

The Krishna Consciousness Movement is the Genuine Vedic Way

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

Thankyou for your prompt and enlightening reply.
Surely,there’s a lot to think over and more importantly realize spiritually.

I am trying almost my best to follow the guidelines of spiritual practice as you outline it often.
But to be frank,I am finding it a little bit difficult to maintain the minimum standard….be it chanting or following the regulative principles or reading prabhupada’s books.

But one thing is for sure-I have been definitely attracted to krishna consciousness for quite a number of years now….and the attraction is still there.
Infact,I have been following you on the internet ever since you started your website-sudarsana.org…around 1997 when i got exposed to the Hare Krishna movement on the internet.

Thank you so very much.

Thanks for responding to my comment.I understand your situation.
And I am definitely encouraged by your articles and comments which I
eagerly read from your site.

And I am trying my best to follow the regulative principles and read
Srila prabhupada’s books and chant the Hare krishna mantra as much as
possible.

But I request you to answer one question for which I have not been able
to get a clear answer.

The soul is sat-cit-ananda and the spiritual body is sat-cit ananda.
Are they two separate entities ? Are they inseparable ?
and
Does a soul always need a body -gross,subtle or spiritual to exist or
enjoy ?

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhuji,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I have a few questions…Please find some time to answer them.

1.Krishna is the origin of everything.That means there must have been a
time when there was no spiritual world,no material world and nothing
except Krishna with all the jivas and His energies and everything in
the body of krishna.is that correct ?

2.What made krishna to manifest the jivas and the spiritual worlds and
material worlds?

3.Are the jivas and the spiritual worlds and material worlds stil
emanating from the body of krishna and will continue endlessly or is it
that krishna has manifested everything that is possible for HIM ?

4.In the conditioned state of life the jiva is separate from the
material body and there is duality because their natures are completely
different or to be more precise opposites? right?

5.The soul is sat-cit-ananda and the spiritual body is sat-cit
ananda.Are they two separate entities ? Are they inseparable ? And
there is no duality in the spiritual world because they are of the same
nature ?

6.Does a soul always need a body -gross,subtle or spiritual to exist or
enjoy ?

7.The soul is eternal-does that mean the “soul” was actually not
created but eternally existing with krishna before and after
manifesting from the body of krishna ??

8.Energy cannot be created or destroyed .Can krishna create “souls” or
destroy them completely out of existence ?

9.Krishna is credited with giving minute independence to the
infintesimal jiva…was the minute freedom always existing or that it
has been deliberately granted to the jiva by krishna ? and that it can
be taken away from jiva and if it is taken away then the jiva is as
good as a robot or even worse ?

10.What actually happens to the jiva at the time of death ? where does
the jiva exist at the time of death and after death before taking
another birth ?

I will be very grateful if you can find time to answer the above 10
questions at your convenience.

I visit your site daily and it is always inspiring,enlightening to read
the articles and comments.

Thank you very much.

Chanting Hare Krishna on Japa Beads

Hare Krishna MAdhudvisa Prabhu,

What is the actual system of offering bhoga to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna ?
Can we offer to their photographs if we dont have deities at home ?
And when we offer on a plate to Srila prabhupada and Krishna and after sometime when it has become prasadam does it have to be mixed with the contents in the vessels in which the bhoga has been cooked or is it that only the plate offered is prasadam and not the contents of the vessels in which it has been cooked ? I hope you see what i am trying to clear my confusion….

And since GOD is everywhere HE is also present within the deity and the photographs but is HE present everywhere as a person or as HIS energy ?

And is Srila Prabhupada also simultaneously present in all of his deities existing anywhere ? I mean the jiva is localized so how can jiva be present simultaneously everywhere in his deity form ?

Perceiving the Existence of the Supreme Scientist, Lord Sri Krishna

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu,

Recently the Pope of Vatican Church made the following statement :

“When we read the creation story in Genesis we run the risk of imagining that God

was a magician, with a magic wand which is able to do everything, but it is not so.

He created beings and let them develop according to internal laws which He gave

every one, so they would develop, so they would reach maturity,” said Pope

Francis.

What the pope is saying that GOD is not a magician and is NOT able to do

everything.

I have developed the belief in GOD ever since I started reading Prabhupada’s

books that NOTHING is impossible with GOD.

I would be interested to know your response to the Pope’s statement.

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.

    thankyou!

    • 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!
