Please don’t take this the wrong way. I’m just asking a question, but doesn’t wanting to please Krishna have some self-interest or desire associated with it too? Like Christians are Christan so the will go to heaven instead of hell. That’s a self-interest or reward too.

Thank you for this teaching. I stopped “asking” and started listening years ago. Though this changed in my spirituality, I never fully understood why I felt this way. I didn’t start “listening” until after the first time I read Gita.
When I am sad, I rejoice in the karmic lessons and attempt to fully feel my sadness. When I am happy, I am thankful for the temporary distraction from the pain of this life and attempt to fully feel my happiness.
But most importantly, I try always to remember that all of this is just a passing moment… a passing opportunity to learn and to serve and to praise.
Thank you for clarifying my understanding with the words of God, for pointing out exactly where He told me to quit asking and start serving for the closest thing to true happiness here in this life and the steps toward returning to Him.

Hello, It is with great happiness that I read the wonderful teaching in your email to me. It seems that this email was meant for me to receive, today.
I, for the very first time, read the introduction to the Bhagavad Gita, today. I was just sent a copy of the book from a lovely man who is with ISKCON. We had a lot of snow in my area. My boss told me to stay at home, today. So, I read the introduction. Then, I opened your email. What a surprise that you are addressing the same subject.
I am very happy to be at the start of the Bhagavad Gita. I plan to read more this evening and over the weekend. We may have 30 inches of snow. So, this is a great weekend for me to connect spiritually with the spiritual sky as the sky opens with snow.
I have many questions about the different sects, groups within the Hindu community. Some talk of one god or another. Some tell me to chant the name of Krishna. Others tell me that all paths are good. I was born a Christian, but am now a member of a Buddhist Vihara (Sri Lankan). However, as I have read today, I am not one to label myself as being one thing and not another.
I am open to truth with my heart. Thank you so much for sharing with me. Your servant, Bruce

My question is one that I have not found the answer too. When one leaves the present body and travels to another, can one go back in time, and to other planets, or do you continue to move forward, as well as to other planets.

Need to make contact with those who believe in Srila Prabhupada 100%. We are devotees who are well aware of those who are the rascals. If there is one devotee out there who believes in Srila Prabhupada like we do, then please contact me by this email below. If you are not, do not contact me and waste my time in this world.
