Correcting ISKCON’s Guru System

Thank you Hansadutta prabhu for your valuable reply based on what you heard from Srila Prabhupada and the offer of sending your book on kirtan to me. How is your health ? Please join the SRila Prabhupada Disciple’s group that I started online. Please forgive me if I made any offences to you.

Thank you very kindly Ishan prabhu for writing back to me.

I am staying in the home of a devotee who has spoekn of you to me in a very affectionate way on serveral occaisions, Veda Vyasa prabhu, from Vancouver. he will be pleased to know I am in touch with you.

If I can be an istrument to get you to publish your memoirs with Srila Prabhupada and ISKCON in general, that will be a great service.

Where and when did you first join ISKCON, and who first introducedyou to Krsna consciousness ?

I just spent a week with Gunagrahi Swami, and he is compiling info for the GBC on Kirtan Standards to be released as a book and he is looking for all quoes on Kirtan. Do you have any quotes from Srila Prabhupada regarding Kirtan specifically ? You must because of the Balarama mrdanga that you invented

If you have anything to say about Kirtan, I will forward your words to our godbrother Gunagrahi Swami

You could give a general introduction about yourself, and then one idea is that you could discuss Srila Prabhupada and your relationship with him in terms of different categories like management, music, prasadam, Deity worship, book distribution, etc….

Please do not delay in writing or recording. Who knows how much more time we have left in these bodies ?

I joined in 1975 in Winnipeg with Nandikesvara prabhu, Duryodhana Guru, Dharma Prana, Vyapaka, Gaura Nitai, then later SIvarama das Brahmacari, Sukra…..then I went with the devotees to meet Srila Prabhupada in Chiacago in the summer of 75 and I was totally blown away by his presence, humility, purity, freedom from pride, etc…. I took initiaion on June 2 76 in Detroit from Srila Prabhupada

ANother devotee that I served with for many years at the Ottawa temple was Laxminatha prabhu and Krsna das . Laxminatha also recounted his apprecation for you as well

Prabhupada Kirtan Melodies – The Formula for Success?

When Rupanuga prabhu was our GBC in eastern Canada in 1976, he made a copy of unedited Prabhupada kirtans from 26 2nd avenue that went to the B Archives

We made a copy on cassette butthey all deteriorated. Ive been begging Ekanatha prabhu for years of these copies but it seems he is too swamped by other seva to release these or send me a copy

They were sometimes a tampura that was out of tune, loud booming mrdanga, clashing kartalas, but still very ecstatic to hear and I have never heard them since. I think there is still more unlreleased kirtan material to be heard, but I dont want to bug Ekantha prabhu anymore as he probably needs more help. I was helping him with transcribing lectures for a while and there are still 200 more to be done !

    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!
