2012 — The End of the World?

Currently at the end of each cycle of time happens a devastation. At the end of Duapara yuga Lord Rama killed all dynasties of demons. At the end of treta yuga Lord Krishna killed all the demons also and expected the same to happen at the end of kali yuga the current age of quarrel. Kali yuga has its ups and downs.

Of course that the world will not end at 2012, but there are strong indications that the demons are determined to destroy the world. An atom of carbon dioxide can destroy 100,000 ozone molecules. The nitrogen trifluoride (Present in plasma screens) has a harmful effect 17,000 times greater than carbon dioxide on the atmosphere. This gas production increased to 8,000 tons in 2009.

In the Bible we find a quote that exactly fits with Srila Prabhupada;

“AND I SAW ANOTHER ANGEL FLY IN THE MIDST OF HEAVEN, HAVING THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL TO PREACH UNTO THEM THAT DWELL ON THE EARTH, AND TO EVERY NATION, AND KINDRED AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE. and he said with a loud voice, “Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.” Rev 14 – 6, 7.

Its means the Sanatana Dharma (eternal gospel) and Srila Prabhupada always refers to:

“The atomic bomb is already there, and as
soon as the next war breaks out, all their
skyscrapers and everything else will be finished…”

“So our scientific advancement has created this atomic bomb to kill man, and it will be used. And we have to
go underground to become again rat. From
tiger, again rat. That is going to be….”

“Krsna cannot be killed, neither His movement cannot
be killed. Rather, those who are attempting
to kill, they will be killed…”

“When the American becomes too much luxurious, they’ll not be able to defend their country. Then it will be finished.
Power hungry politicians are creating havoc everywhere. These rascals create so many difficult situations. The public is very nice but the politicians keep them in ignorance. I have studied the whole world. Human nature is the same everywhere. The mass of people are very good but these rogues create by their personal aggrandizement so many difficulties….”

[S.P. Letter to: Atreya Rsi Bombay 20 April, 1977]

“Thus there is a great need for the Krsna consciousness movement for the benefit of innocent people who are being carried away by propaganda of such demons

In the present age, Kali-yuga, the number of such shameless men, who are agnostics disbelieving in the existence of God, has increased. Trying to defy the authority of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, so-called scientists, philosophers and politicians manufacture plans and schemes for the destruction of the world. They cannot do anything good for the world, and unfortunately, because of Kali-yuga, they have plunged the affairs of the world into mismanagement. Thus there is a great need for the Krsna consciousness movement for the benefit of innocent people who are being carried away by propaganda of such demons. If the present status quo is allowed to continue, people will certainly suffer more and more under the leadership of these demoniac agnostics.

[S.B. 8.22.20]

They must be killed by You
for the protection of the innocent public.

TRANSLATION: O my Lord, proprietor of all creation, You have now appeared in my house, desiring to protect this world. I am sure that You will kill all the armies that are moving all over the world under the leadership of politicians who are dressed as ksatriya rulers but who are factually demons. They must be killed by You for the protection of the innocent public.

PURPORT: Krsna appears in this world for two purposes, paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam: to protect the innocent, religious devotees of the Lord and to annihilate all the uneducated, uncultured asuras, who unnecessarily bark like dogs and fight among themselves for political power. It is said, kali-kale nama-rupe krsna avatara. The Hare Krsna movement is also an incarnation of Krsna in the form of the holy name (nama-rupe). Every one of us who is actually afraid of the asuric rulers and politicians must welcome this incarnation of Krsna: Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare. Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. Then we will surely be protected from the harassment of asuric rulers. At the present moment these rulers are so powerful that by hook or by crook they capture the highest posts in government and harass countless numbers of people on the plea of national security or some emergency. Then again, one asura defeats another asura, but the public continues to suffer. Therefore the entire world is in a precarious condition, and the only hope is this Hare Krsna movement. Lord Nrsimhadeva appeared when Prahlada was excessively harassed by his asuric father. Because of such asuric fathers–that is, the ruling politicians–it is very difficult to press forward the Hare Krsna movement, but because Krsna has now appeared in His holy name through this movement, we can hope that these asuric fathers will be annihilated and the kingdom of God established all over the world. The entire world is now full of many asuras in the guise of politicians, gurus, sadhus, yogis and incarnations, and they are misleading the general public away from Krsna consciousness, which can offer true benefit to human society.

[S.B. 10.3.21]

“So atom, atom bomb is waiting for them.
Yes. It will be finished. All the demons will be finished.
So these rascals are going on. So it is very difficult to preach Krsna consciousness. The whole world is overburdened by these rascals and demons. So atom, atom bomb is waiting for them. Yes. It will be finished. All the demons will be finished.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lec. 1.8.34 Los Angeles, April 26, 1973)

Dear Prabhu’s, pamho. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Correcting ISKCON’s Guru System

“The Collective Acharya” By Kailasa Candra dasa

The cult to the personality

When the very best thing is imitated and perverted, it quickly degenerates into the very worst thing; this is a universal principle.

ISKCON and the BBT were created in the context of legal bodies recognized as such by the State. So, Srila Prabhupada never intended for the GBC to be a corporate entity. That is clear. The GBC was formed with its constitution and limitations spelled out in a document called now by its acronym, the DOM (Direction of Management). It was set up as an –unincorporated– trust, governed by the DOM. Ravindra Svarupa calls the DOM as part of Prabhupada’s “initial ideas”. This is a self-serving false allegation. The GBC was set up as no more than an advisory board to the Temple Presidents. And this was demonstrated in the DOM itself, in the fact that the Presidents had a checks and balances counterweight spelled out in the DOM. The DOM cannot historically be either belittled or considered irrelevant; it was integral to the very essence and existence of the Governing Body Commission.

“GBC does not mean to control a center. GBC means to see that the activities of a center go on nicely. I do not know why Tamal is exercising his ‘absolute’ authority. That is not the business of GBC. The President, Treasurer and Secretary are responsible for managing the center. GBC is to see that things are going nicely but not to exert absolute authority. That is not in the power of GBC. Tamal should not do like that. The GBC men cannot impose anything on the men of a center without consulting all of the GBC members first. A GBC member cannot go beyond the jurisdiction of his power. . . . it is a fact that the local President is not under the control of the GBC.” Letter to Giriraj, Aug. 12, 1971 from London (emphasis added)

ISKCON never had any central corporate entity and it was never meant to have one. This is why, in part, the Long Island rittviks and their Bangalore counterparts were able to win recent lawsuits against “GBC” (GBC) antagonists. The GBC was never mentioned in the ISKCON or BBT Articles of Incorporation or in its By-Laws. And in the DOM –which, as aforementioned, was meant to govern the GBC and spell out the limitations of its power– it clearly says, “His Divine Grace has final approval in all matters.” This means that Srila Prabhupada’s authority was explicitly superior to any GBC advisor and to the whole commission itself.

It is self-evident that the GBC were not some kind of Goliath Group owners of ISKCON and BBT, and that none of its members could be on the Board for a very long duration. The originally appointed GBC commissioners from 1969 are on the “GBC” in 2009.

The commissioners were to serve three-year terms but they must all be re-elected in order to continue on the Board; this was also stipulated in the DOM. Herein, we find the First Deviation: The “GBC” (GBC) never informed the other Temple Presidents that the DOM even existed. They never informed them about their fiduciary responsibility in relation to the DOM and their inherent power to serve as check and balance counterweights to the power of the GBC.

This deviation was never rectified and as such, it actually guts the whole foundation of the thing, especially after the disappearance of Srila Prabhupada. But the deviations were numerous.

The DOM clearly stipulated: “It is declared that His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is the Founder-Acharya of ISKCON. He is the supreme authority in all matters of the Society. His position cannot be occupied by anyone else . . .” Prabhupada always held this position, right to the very end. That he never fully trusted the GBC can be found in many of his letters. For example: “Then collect the opinions of each and every GBC member, and, if the majority supports the idea, then it should be taken as a fact for being carried out in our society. The majority vote and my opinion should be taken. When the majority opinion is present, my opinion will be yes or not. In most cases it will be yes, unless it is grievously against our principles.” Letter to Bhagavan on Aug. 20, 1971 from London (emphasis added)

“Grievously against our principles”!!!!! How could a body that now claims it was constituted of the best devotees enact decisions that were grievously against the principles Srila Prabhupada established? How could an absolute group Leviathan be prone to stipulate something grievously against the Absolute principles? How could a body that claims its decisions must be the best possible –because so many “advanced” devotees put their heads together to make such decisions– legislate decisions that are grievously against the principles of Krishna Consciousness? Well, it could and it did in 1978, for example, it did so on a devastating and unprecedented scale. It has been legislating and promoting cover-up “mistakes” in order to obscure that “mistake” ever since, and it has shown that it deserves to receive no allegiance from anyone.

Srila Prabhupada in any moment calls the G.B.C. as the ultimate managerial authority but, THEY ASUME THAT SRILA PRABHUPADA APPOINTED THE G.B.C. TO BE ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY. In other words, that Prabhupada assigned the position of successor authority (Acharya) to a group, to the GBC. This is the major deviation from how a Vaishnava parampara continues. A group is never a collective Acharya; neither can it decide who is guru or Acharya. Is supposed that the “GBC” could not decide how the sampradaya continue. This hubris is immeasurable and this audacity of the “GBC” translated into the self-apotheosis of its Zonals “Acharyas”. What Prabhupada had said was; “Ritvik initiators, that’s all,” and, much more importantly, is that he had not given the order to become guru to any of his disciples formally during the time he was still manifest, became relegated to ancient history and ultimately considered irrelevant. The “GBC” had supposedly received the full functions of Srila Prabhupada’s will, purity and transcendental authority.

The genuine guru personally orders his disciple to become guru, when that disciple reaches the level required by his guru and when the guru estimates that his disciple should begin initiating new people into the line. Obviously, the genuine guru will never personally give such an order to any disciple who still possesses even one anartha. A guru cannot have anarthas; that is not possible. There is no such thing as a bad guru or a pseudo-guru or a sahajiya guru; but this is the worst thing of all and considered a new kind of atrocious: “A Collective Acharya.” Evidently these kinds of “devotees” are loaded with anarthas and they pass their anarthas on to their initiated disciples, converting ISKCON into a clandestine cult. The GBC should be accepted as “The Supreme Authority” and of course they claim that they have to be worshipped as “Mahabhavagatas.”

In terms of “ISKCON” dogma, who protest against it is considered a dissident. If someone denounces some of these “Lilas” he is immediately denounced as: “A demon”. Any rebellion against this arrangement is said to be a kind of defiance (guror-avajna) against the Founder-Acharya, Srila Prabhupada—in the form of a direct defiance against his so-called successor, the “GBC.”

All of these men are full-blown sahajiyas. Each of these supposed Mahabhavagatas perverted into a terrible caricature of siddha-purusa. They are all pseudo gurus and in this monstrosity of their anarthas are supposed to be absolute and praiseworthy. So, instead of somewhat of them keeping their original initiated names, almost all of them adopted as a fashion other names, usually ending in “pada.” This was a deliberate and ultimately laughable imitation of Prabhu-pada. Rather than go over their auto-named “pada” and how ridiculous each of those titles are, it is the more efficacious way to understand how each of them became a caricature of guru, as they attempted to carve out an absolute identity as De Facto Popes within their zones. So, the fragmented movement now had to contend with; “ISKCON guru vrinda” (The Vanity Fair Despot, the Scholar, the Teflon Pundit, the Sun King, the Libertine, the Pusher, the Machiavellian Manipulator, the Fanatic Flag-Waiver, the Psychotropic Sahajiya, Das Fuhrer Comet, the Post-Modern Magician, the Inflexible, the Joker and other Clowns.) They are great cheaters and everyone who followed them and actually believed that they are God-realized lovers of Truth constituted the cheated. So the “ISKCON” movement devolved into the newest Transnational Corporation of Cheaters and Cheated.

This imposition of these men as “mahabhagavats” –all of whom are loaded with personal and institutional anarthas– was a scheme that appeared unbeatable at first. They all had their own zones of influence. Had they stayed in their turfs and not criticized one another —if they had also not attempted so many outrages— then the concoction is to dominate everything and everyone. However, when conditioned souls, loaded with anarthas, imitate guru –and particularly when they imitate the actual self-realized soul– their destruction is arranged for by the demigods. This is, in part, because they are imitating the demigods.

The immeasurable pride and audacity of these pretender mahabhagavats are not merely the megalomania of some powerful leader of a nation-state. No. All of these men are absorbed in the delusion of self-apotheosis. They are all absorbed in the material mind and in their lusts and desires (kama-sankalpa), thinking these desires to be absolute. They are all absorbed in anger and hatred against anyone who criticized or thwarted them in any way. They are all very insane, but, due to having performed some buddhi-yoga in years past, they are still (generally) shrewd in their insanity. They are completely intoxicated of proud by their great power over others, by the gopis who dance for them in front of their so-called vyasasans, and by the buzz they received on a daily and hourly basis as objects of worship by hundreds of dedicated fools and fanatics. They are regularly subjected to the fear of their scheme being exposed, especially by knowledgeable godbrothers who could see the fault lines in this unauthorized arrangement. They are very greedy for more and more fame and influence, more and more “knowledge” of ways to better pull the whole thing off, for more and more disciples, more and more power and more and more Laxmis or Gopis.

They are “GBC” loyal. The “ISKCON” movement is completely under the control of the “GBC.” Unlike ISKCON, however, the real GBC no longer exists—and, as far as that goes, it never did function in a bona fide way for a great deal of time even while Srila Prabhupada was still with us. The evolution of this governing body has been long in duration, the offenses have been very great and the GBC has been ruined permanently, warped and perverted into the “GBC.”

The most important thing to consider here is that Srila Prabhupada did not approve the Politicians or Party Men. He in effect condemned this kind of functionary. The “ISKCON” movement is dominated by Party Men. The Party Men cooperate (conspirate) with the Zonals (of course, the Zonals themselves are all Party Men) and help to empower them. The Party Men (faction) is a multi-faceted dynamic, composed of fanatics, sycophants, henchmen and temple officers. It always has been so. The Men of the Party “ISKCON” represent themselves as if they are in Krishna Conscious resolving everything saying; “This is a Krishna’s arrangement.” The dynamic of the Party Men is found in that their thoughts, character and personality are clones of Prabhupada’s and are at the same level of the Supreme Lord’s Thoughts, Character and Personality.

To ensure their position in the Party; the Men measure the ideals in terms of their position in the corporate structure. Then whatever they are doing or saying is considered spiritual by them. So for them sexual education is spiritual education. The preaching of follow the four principles, the chanting of the 16 rounds and to make of your home a temple has no meaning for them. Their preaching of knowledge reach the summit: “One can cheat everybody some times, a few all the times, but no one can cheat everybody all the times …. I am vegetarian because my doctor asks me this; but when I go to a party I don’t fall in lies with myself….”

The Party Men shift with the ever-changing winds of corporate doctrine, because they are devoted of the “GBC.” The Party Man is a particularly nasty piece of work. He usually comes in the form of a sannyas and habitually completely without genuine conscience. His intelligence always works to ponder the Party Line and the current momentum; he always wants to make sure that he will be on the side that is winning. His shibboleth is: “‘ISKCON’–with all thy faults–I still love thee!” He is always backs the current transformation and “We are in permanent transformation.” The only constant is the change.

The Party Men at the topmost stratum are the real controllers of this kaitava-dharma and they are not entirely members. They are protected by back-guards and killers. They openly say: “I am not Hare Krishna, but a servant of God.”

Indeed, as far as astral powers are concerned, they are not ordinary men. They are like the brain police (totalitarism) and they control almost all the other devotees; powerful Party Men even have the ability to influence malcontents. These are some of the techniques of the Party Men, who are masters at creating doubt and guilt, masters of deception, masters at bewilderment, masters at enticement, masters at pseudo-persuasion and, when the situation calls for it, masters at harassment and various psychic punishments. They have their own spheres, both gross and subtle.

The various followers, who are weak in knowledge, mind control, and yogic development, can hardly escape the network of the Party Men once they become entangled in it. The Party Men buttress this astral network via the buildings, Deities, vehicles, properties and money on the gross plane, and those innocent but foolish devotee followers are completely trapped by them and their manifestations. If such neophytes try to escape, ultimately they have to contend with danda from the Party Men. Take it from one who knows: You will not come out unscathed when the Party Men decide to punish you. But all the mud they have thrown on so many people is now starting to get tossed back their way and that momentum will continue. There is a universal principle involved in that: Some call it the law of karma.

Krishna Consciousness means to see as Lord Krishna sees, to see as the Chaitya-guru or Paramatma sees. To become Krishna Conscious means to see the Party Men as what they really are.

“Only one who can learn the process of nescience and that of transcendental knowledge side by side can transcend the influence of repeated birth and death and enjoy the full blessings of immortality.” Sri Isopanisad Mantra 11

We are delineating the process of nescience for your spiritual well-being and ultimately, so that you can transcend the influence of repeated birth and death and enjoy the full blessings of immortality. The “GBC” is part of the process of nescience. The “ISKCON” controls are so. The process of recognizing gurus in “ISKCON” is integral to the power of the Party Men who serve to keep everyone they can implicate in their nescience.

At this point an objection might be raised. The reader might protest that this treatise is “too negative.” Is it so? Well, we first must know what constitutes “negativity.” New Agers used to say: “Do not be judgmental; no negativity.” However, if we analyze that motto, we see that it is itself composed of three negative components. The issue is not objective negativity; the issue is the application of negativity. When a surgeon removes a cancerous tumor, the bloody operation involves quite a bit of negative action. However, if successful, that outcome is judged very positive. So the modus operandi takes a back seat to the outcome, as far as the final judgment is concerned, especially when the operation is a success (this, by the way, is a proper example of Prabhupada’s phalena-pariciyate *the answer is the proof* statements).

When any kind of organization is running powerfully, it is able to do so because one man embodies and exemplifies it. When there is no such man, the organization muddles on in a divided and often semi-disorganized manner. As such, a really powerful corporation is but the shadow of one man. When transformations devolve, it usually does so under one man’s influence. The conspirator was Bhakti Charu with the assistance of three corporate manipulators Tamal, JayPataka and Jaydwaita. They did so in no small measure because they were able to secure the post of “taking care of” Srila Prabhupada in his last days. Something very nefarious took place during those final months (“Someone has poisoned me”). Srila Prabhupada’s wishes were not honored. We shall not go into the poison issue, but suffice it to say that there is plenty of evidence—and that evidence is not weak. Exactly how it all transpired is almost impossible to know without a smoking gun, i.e., without someone who was implicated spilling his guts. But we do know that Prabhupada ordered that he be taken on parikrama during the last month and that order was disobeyed. In this way were developing the intrigue, the treachery and the corruption that were quickly becoming institutionalized.

The big brothers made the great power play and case closed. Any kind of future disgruntlement would be extinguished before it could even get started. The “GBC” is the ultimate controlling vortex of the fabricated so-called “ISKCON” confederation. Even its personified representative can be dragged down if he strays from its astral pleasure. The “GBC” is not linked to the Madhva-Gaudiya Sampradaya or any devotional parampara powerhouse.

There are universal laws and principles to make sure such combustible instability does not last long. These men were initiating new people, all of whom had little or no knowledge of the Vedic or Vaishnava teachings, all of whom had little or no detachment from material enjoyment, and all of who were prime candidates to be mislead by powerful, charismatic pretenders: “The ignorant pseudo religionists and the manufacturers of so-called incarnations who directly violate the Vedic injunctions are liable to enter into the darkest region of the universe because they mislead those who follow them. . . If such foolish men have any knowledge at all, it is more dangerous in their hands than ignorance itself. . . The pseudo religionists have neither knowledge nor detachment from material affairs, for most of them want to live in the golden shackles of material bondage under the shadow of philanthropic activities disguised as religious principles.

By a false display of religious sentiments, they present a show of devotional service while indulging in all sorts of immoral activities. In this way, they pass as spiritual masters and devotees of God. Such violators of religious principles have no respect for the authoritative acaryas, the holy teachers in the strict disciplic succession. . . Instead, to mislead the people in general, they themselves become so-called acaryas, but they do not even follow the principles of the acaryas. . . These rogues are the most dangerous elements in human society. Because there is no religious government, they escape punishment by the law of the state. They cannot, however, escape the law of the Supreme, who has clearly declared in the Bhagavad-gita that envious demons in the garb of religious propagandists shall be thrown into the darkest regions of hell (Bg. 16.19-20).

Sri Isopanisad confirms that these pseudo religionists are heading toward the most obnoxious place in the universe after the completion of their spiritual master business, which they conduct simply for sense gratification.” Sri Isopanisad, Verse 12, purport.

At this point, it is important to get some understanding of spiritual or devotional initiation. The pretender mahabhagavats conducted many initiation ceremonies. Real initiation in the devotional line means to receive the bhakti-lata-bija. Some devotees opine that it can only be received by getting it from a manifest mahabhagavat. There are shastric counter-indicators, as well as favorable commentary on those by Srila Prabhupada. Of course, those indicators will be misused in Kali Yuga by powerful men laboring to fulfill their own personal ambitions. The issue of the transference of the bhakti-lata bija is a very subtle topic. While Srila Prabhupada was manifest, all devotees who received initiation from him had the bhakti-lata bija planted in their heart of hearts. That does not, however, mean that all those devotees were completely sheltered from receiving other bijas during that time. For instance, the “ISKCON” bija was infecting the Party Men during the time of Prabhupada’s manifest lila and since then, that weed has turned out to be the predominant bija of the twisted three.

The point has been made that getting initiated during the time of Srila Prabhupada’s manifest preaching activities was an easy accomplishment. From one perspective, this argument appears to have teeth, because approximately five-thousand devotees did receive initiation during that eleven-year period. However, recommendations to Prabhupada for initiation almost always came through the medium of various hierarchical authorities: Temple Presidents, GBCs, and sannyasis were the primary persons who made these recommendations. And here is where you need to contemplate and understand a very subtle point. Even while Prabhupada was with us, the Party Men –in their patented niyamagraha fashion– considered that spiritual advancement was non-different from moving up the latticework of the bureaucratic rungs, i.e., distinction as a Temple President automatically connoted a spiritual advancement superior to all the “inmates” (under his orders) in that temple.

Similarly, receiving sannyasa (was only for aristocratic devotee who was allowed to all sorts of commodities and servants) allegedly amounted to automatic recognition of higher spiritual realization. And getting posted to the governing body was more or less considered tantamount to being the most spiritually advanced, the best man amongst all the other initiated devotees. Similarly the marriages were only for ugly females with awesome devotees, and keep so the beautiful girls always running towards the authorities searching for a husband.

Time, insight and experience have shown all of this to be a misconception. Within the temples, devotees who wanted to receive initiation from Srila Prabhupada did not necessarily do so in the context of the same motivation. Since the conduit to receive initiation was the approval of the Temple President (or, in some cases, the sannyasi who headed their party), sucking up to the leader–a kind of profit, adoration, and distinction offering to him—was sometimes employed in order to receive the recommendation more quickly and more easily. Other devotees did not consider the various Temple Presidents to be all that they thought they were, but these devotees still performed their seva—sometimes in severe austerity—under the sanction of their Temple President.

These devotees, despite the fact that they often produced very tangible results, were generally not favored by the Temple President or sannyasi leader as much as the psycophants were; especially if he was already in the process of developing an upadhi (big positions are sometimes created for big egos). In his mind, these other devotees might also become competitors for his position. These devotees had to figuratively crawl on glass in order to finally get recommended for initiation by their assigned leader. When Srila Prabhupada received a letter requesting initiation for a devotee from a Temple President, he almost always granted the request. Sometimes he did not, however. We can confidently assume that once the initiation ceremony was performed after the request had been granted by Prabhupada, the bhakti-lata-bija was received by the newly-initiated devotee. Even before the formality of initiation, the devotee had received from his guru (Srila Prabhupada) the bija of sraddha (komala-sraddha) and associated with the Sampradya Acharya (sadhu-sanga) on a very regular basis via the seva rendered and the literatures read. This sraddha, although it is soft faith, is still constituted of a firm conviction that the yoga process of bhakti will accomplish completely all the legitimate spiritual aspirations of the sadhaka (that can be attained from any other Vedic process of dharma or yoga).

Once the harer-nama initiation was formally received at the bhajana-kriya stage, the devotee had received the Holy Name in disciplic succession and the bhakti-lata-bija could be very effectively cultivated. When the devotee made further progress on the path–when he began to approach the stage of getting free from anarthas and realizing the Brahman–he received diksa (again, after a letter of recommendation was sent by his authority to Srila Prabhupada). He attained second initiation and the gayatri mantra. This means that he was now recognized as having moved closer to the guru, Srila Prabhupada. However, the sycophants and fanatic followers allowed a weed to be planted in the garden of their hearts during this time, because of their unauthorized worship (in effect) of the local leader who appeared to control their spiritual destinies. They invariably received the “ISKCON” bija. This weed is a corporate imitator of the bhakti-lata-bija. It eventually works to strangle the real bija, sucking up all the watering process for itself. Srila Prabhupada cannot be blamed; you cannot pin it on the Sampradaya Acharya.

The blame goes to the individual who attempted to shortcut the process of initiation by considering it from a material perspective. The blame also is shared by those sannyasis, GBCs, and Temple Presidents who began to look at all the devotees under their charge as persons who could make no progress in the movement without first surrendering to them. By 1977, the majority of devotees in all the temples, on all the traveling parties, and in all the zones were arguably more absorbed in the personality cult of their local leader than in Srila Prabhupada, who was pretty much relegated to the position of figurehead by that time. It was a travesty. Those devotees who bucked the trend found ever-increasing resistance within the confines of the international confederation; they were often considered crazy.

This “ISKCON” consciousness was hardly apparent in the early and even mid-Seventies. When I preached on the college campuses back then, I never thought of the corporate acronym. I never named my campus initiatives as anything relating to the corporation; I generally called them Bhakti Yoga Clubs. When I gave a platform lecture, I never spoke of the movement in terms of its acronym. I instead preached the philosophy, or talked about a pastime of the Lord, or glorified Srila Prabhupada, or discussed the process and the importance of initiation from the bona fide Spiritual Master, etc. However, very gradually and insidiously, the Party Man consciousness began to seep into the movement, and all real advancement began to only be measured according to its paradigm.

Side by side with this material development (perversion) was an overemphasis on the commissioners of the governing body. The real nectar was in chanting japa or sankirtan, in book distribution, in Deity worship, in reading the books, in preaching engagements, etc. However, insidiously, another kind of very contaminated consciousness began to enter. The personalities of the governing body were considered to be like demigods who controlled the movement and deserved all attention, profit, adoration, and distinction. Some devotees never cooperated with this idea, and their path became more and more difficult. So, in order to understand how the movement was being ruined from within, it is necessary to consider what this commission was actually meant to be—and what it actually became.

“….Do not tries to initiate. You are not in a proper position now to initiate anyone . . . Don’t be allured by such maya . . . Don’t be allured by cheap disciples. Go on steadfastly to render service first. If you immediately become guru, then the service activities will be stopped; and as there are many cheap gurus and cheap disciples, without any substantial knowledge, and manufacturing new sampradayas, and with service activities stopped, and all spiritual progress choked up.” — Letter to Acyutananda/Jaya Govinda on Aug. 21, 1968 from Montreal (emphasis added)

Secretary: What about the so-called gurus that takes a little bit here, a little bit there? Prabhupada: So-called gurus, they are so-called gurus. They are not gurus. That is already explained. If one does not speak what Krishna speaks, he is not guru. If you accept so-called guru, that is your misfortune. What can be done?
Secretary: Some of them will say some things that Krishna says, but they’ll take from other places also. What is the position of such persons?
Prabhupada: He’s most dangerous. He’s most dangerous. He is opportunist. He’s finding out customer, something here … According to the customer he is giving something, as the customers will be pleased. — Answers to Questionnaire Room Conversation on June 28, 1976 (emphasis added)

Human Life is not for working hard like animals

Hare Krishna Helen

Depression is mainly due to a heavy atmosphere or the tension in ambience. It is important the environment in which you perform, the atmosphere should be clean and so our minds will also be clean. Both can be cleaned by the chanting of the holy names of God.

Srila Prabhupada said that all health problems come from food. It says “Tell me what you eat and I’ll tell you who you are.” You are what you eat. The Bhagavad Gita 6, 17 the lord Krishna say; “He who is regulated in his habits of eating, sleeping, recreation and work can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system.”
PURPORT BY SRILA PRABHUPADA:
Extravagance in the matter of eating, sleeping, defending and mating — which are demands of the body — can block advancement in the practice of yoga. As far as eating is concerned, it can be regulated only when one is practiced to take and accept prasādam, sanctified food. Lord Kṛṣṇa is offered, according to the Bhagavad-gītā (9.26), vegetables, flowers, fruits, grains, milk, etc. In this way, a person in Kṛṣṇa consciousness becomes automatically trained not to accept food not meant for human consumption, or not in the category of goodness. As far as sleeping is concerned, a Kṛṣṇa conscious person is always alert in the discharge of his duties in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, and therefore any unnecessary time spent sleeping is considered a great loss. Avyartha-kālatvam: [Cc.Madhya 23.18-19] a Kṛṣṇa conscious person cannot bear to pass a minute of his life without being engaged in the service of the Lord. Therefore, his sleeping is kept to a minimum. His ideal in this respect is Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, who was always engaged in the service of Kṛṣṇa and who could not sleep more than two hours a day, and sometimes not even that. Ṭhākura Haridāsa would not even accept prasādam nor even sleep for a moment without finishing his daily routine of chanting with his beads three hundred thousand names. As far as work is concerned, a Kṛṣṇa conscious person does not do anything which is not connected with Kṛṣṇa’s interest, and thus his work is always regulated and is untainted by sense gratification. Since there is no question of sense gratification, there is no material leisure for a person in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. And because he is regulated in all his work, speech, sleep, wakefulness and all other bodily activities, there is no material misery for him.

Quote from BG 12.6-12:

But those who worship Me, giving up all their activities unto Me and being devoted to Me without deviation, engaged in devotional service and always meditating upon Me, having fixed their minds upon Me, O son of Pṛthā — for them I am the swift deliverer from the ocean of birth and death.
Just fix your mind upon Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and engage all your intelligence in Me. Thus you will live in Me always, without a doubt. My dear Arjuna, O winner of wealth, if you cannot fix your mind upon Me without deviation, then follow the regulative principles of bhakti-yoga. In this way develop a desire to attain Me. If you cannot practice the regulations of bhakti-yoga, then just try to work for Me, because by working for Me you will come to the perfect stage. If, however, you are unable to work in this consciousness of Me, then try to act giving up all results of your work and try to be self-situated. If you cannot take to this practice, then engage yourself in the cultivation of knowledge. Better than knowledge, however, is meditation, and better than meditation is renunciation of the fruits of action, for by such renunciation one can attain peace of mind.

Namaste Madhudvisa Prabhuji.

First of all let me congratulate you for that Brihat Mridanga that you’re playing, which is like the discovery channel of the Hare Krishnas.

In regards on this article the point is not what we have but what we are, this is the real value.

In the beginning when you were looking for translators for the dvds of Srila Prabhupada I felt motivated but it was not possible for me to join this group something I be sorry.

I sent you an essay entitled “God is Light” for the purpose of seeing if you like. If it is so, I would like them you include on your page as an article. My fear is that the English language that I use be incomprehensible. I learned English by reading Srila Prabhupada’s books but I think I have a lot to learn yet. If you agree I need your review and corrections. Feel free to make any changes and corrections where necessary, either to cut copy and paste, add, erase, etc. This work is yours. As the American say “make my day.”

That kind of readings is almost at the level of pure chanting of Hare Krishna Maha Mantra, the source of all light, all knowledge and all truth, Krishna.

I have another article called “Take me to Vrindavana” That I wrote some 15 years ago, and I want to translate it into English to send you. This is a conversation between a guest and Prabhu Das, who spoke from the most basic knowledge of Krishna consciousness towards a description of the spiritual world, where at the end Lord Krishna spokes you personally.

I’m living now in Margarita island in the Caribbean with my three sons, Nitay, Gopal and Syam, 16, 14 and 12 years respectively. They are devotees from the birth and never has gone to any school because they know that the smallest knowledge of Srila Prabhupada is worth more than many years of study in karmis schools.

I hope you be fine and ecstatic in Krishna conciousness.

Receive a big hug, your servant Goura.

Dharma? Sanatana Dharma?

Sanatana Dharma or eternal gospel quoted in the Bible.

AND I SAW ANOTHER ANGEL FLY IN THE MIDST OF HEAVEN (or in midair), HAVING THE EVERLASTING (or eternal) GOSPEL TO PREACH (or proclaim) UNTO THEM THAT DWELL (or live) ON THE EARTH, AND TO EVERY NATION, AND KINDRED (or tribe), AND TONGUE (or language), AND PEOPLE-Rev 14:6.

Whether this is 1) a literal angel preaching as he flies in the air, or 2) a symbolic angel.

AND I SAW ANOTHER ANGEL ASCENDING FROM THE EAST, HAVING THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD: AND HE SHOUTED WITH A LOUD VOICE TO THE FOUR ANGELS, TO WHOM IT WAS GIVEN TO HURT THE EARTH AND THE SEA SAYING, HURT NOT THE EARTH (or land), NEITHER THE SEA, NOR THE TREES, TILL WE (plural) HAVE SEALED THE SERVANTS OF OUR GOD ON THEIR FOREHEADS-Rev 7:2-3.

The Order Of God — Not that Nonviolence Nonsense

Questions & Answers With Srila Prabhupada

The science of god is a science as any other. We are scientists dont sentimentality, that is our light in the darkness in order to achieve a higher light. Scientists claim that the propositions of the knowledge of God escapes any scientific treatment, but they are wrong. The Science of God is a science such as physics, chemistry or otherwise and is also based on experimentation and observation and its results are completely verifiable.

But science of God is a trascendental science and its experiments are of different nature, since they imply a greater difficulty of the ordinary science experiments, because while the material experiments are performed with external elements in the science of God the object of experimentation is one self and it is not easy to do with us what we commonly do with other elements in scientific experiments.

In a scientific experiment is taken the element in its natural and pure form and is isolated from everything else. Since nature does not always manifest things in a pure form and without mixing, before it is necessary to isolate the object of study. Once this has been done, certain changes take place in the element, to be observed carefully. Under different conditions, the item will react in different ways. That is how are discovered the laws governing the reactions of the element. The body of knowledge on these laws is called “science.”

The Science of God and of the conscious being is a question regarding the source of their consciousness. The being neither exists in pure form, as it is conditioned by its partnership with the body consisting of five material elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether), the five senses of perception (sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell) are also the five senses of action (speech, walking, grasping, evacuate and urine), and the five objects of the senses. The object of the sight is light, the object of the touch is the texture, the object of hearing the sound, the object of the smell is the scent and flavor is the object of taste). There are too the three subtle senses, that is: the mind, the intelligence and the false ego. The mind is the sense of thinking feeling and desire. The intelligence is the sense of determination to discriminate, and the ego is the sense of the identification whith the body. Moreover, the vision of the element experience (the being) is stained by the six enemies of the conditional soul: the selfishness, lust, avarice, wrath, gluttony, jealousy and bitterness.

So the first condition of a scientific experiment is the isolation and purification of the element to experiment. This is not easy to achieve. We can easily manipulate objects that are outside of us, we can set off a hydrogen bomb, or send a man to the moon, but when it comes to doing something to change the soul of the former association with objects external to it, we are in front of something different.

Human nature has a tendency to ridicule what is difficult to achieve. This partly explains the attitude of the scientists at the science of God. But there are many people who, despite their apparent difficulty, have carried out experiments in the light and the science of God is the result of the generalizations made by them. The detailed treatment, accurate and systematic (scientific) that makes the laws, stages, classes and conditions of the various experiments of the science of God easily convince anyone that takes place, that the science of God is, wherever you look, a science.

There are two questions we need to do to try to establish whether a body of knowledge can be called science: 1 • To what extent has come to describe the nature of the object that looks? 2 • How necessary or absolute laws that are discovered?

Judged in the light of these questions, we conclude that the cience of God is the only one can be called truthfully science and is the only science that deserves that name, since only science of God is the only science that gives us knowledge, the basic science of all sciences and its laws are the only laws necessary.

The development of modern science has led scientists to accept that they are unable to discover the true nature and laws of an object.

Follow chanting Hare Krishna.

I always wondered what the level in which one should be considered a devotee? But never got a satisfactory answer. The answer that I give is: One of the numberless krishna`s names is Hrisikesa “The One Who Control the senses.” So to be a devotee means be over the control of the senses, something that gives us knowledge. Channakya Pandit says: “There is no better feeling of happiness than the knowledge.” So be over the level of control of the senses means to have knowledge cit and Ananda blessedness.

These world is asat temporary and dukalayam full of distress, anityam asukham lokam.

Ekadasi Vrata

Hare Krishna Dandavats.
Srila Prabhupada Ki jay!

When one worships Krishna through the path of karma, the mind
is purified, and one may obtain material fruits, freedom from disease,
or liberation. But the same worship of Krishna through the path
of bhakti produces only prema for Krishna-näma. When karmis, those
who follow the path of karma, observe Ekädasi, it eradicates their
sins; whereas when bhaktas observe Ekädasi, it enhances their haribhakti.
Just see what a world of difference there is!
The subtle difference between sädhana performed as an aspect
of karma, and sädhana performed as an aspect of bhakti may be
known only by the mercy of Bhagavän. The bhaktas obtain the
primary result, whereas the karmis are caught up in the secondary
results, which may be broadly divided into two categories, namely,
bhukti (material sense enjoyment) and mukti (liberation).
Chant Hare Krishna with love and the Love will never leave you, if you Love The Love them The Love will love you ten times more. Live in the world of Love.

Prabhupada Wanted No More Gurus for 10,000 Years–A Completely Bogus Idea

Lord Sri Krishna and Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu preach about the supreme love of the Gopis, the six goswamis preach the extreme renunciation, Bhaktivinoda Thakur (the 7º goswami) preach about The Jaiva Dharma, Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati preach about to chant 64 rounds daily, Srila Prabhupad preach about to follow 4 regulative principles and chant 16 rounds daily, and the preaching of the auto-named acharyas of today is: “Our actual business is to hunt sex and money…..”

“At confession of part, relay of proof.”

In conclusion:
Disciple is who follow. The relationship between the disciple and his spiritual master is from heart to heart and does not depends of an simbolic fire ceremony. “The only one samskara in kali yuga is the chanting of the Holly Names, and not even the aceptance of the spiritual master, but some times apprears an Acharya Who sets the standars.” Srila Rupa Goswami, archana paddati, introduction.

This book was writted by the explicit order of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, established in the Gaudiya Math by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati, in ISKCON by Srila Prabhupad and prohibited by the GBC. “The one who hidden something is because something have.”

Ramesvara Prabhu:

“When the river sounds, is by the stones.”
Prabhu Tulsi Vrinda told me that about you. And in your last class you said: “I am leaving now, but don’t worry because I`ll give donations.” In a mood of the Lord of Laxmi. “When a sudra gets money he degrades.”

“What jumps to the sight dont require glasses.”
When a devotee wants to render devotional service he does not announces it to the four winds. You are using this prestigious site to collect votes, not to pay novitiate again, but to achieve a political position in ISKCON. ¡Oh what elevated! With this you say that ISKCON is a politic party. And the policy has nothing to do with morality. “Too much devotion is the sintom of a robber.” I don’t believe that the members of the GBC accept a such fool as one of its members. The lack of knowledge is the sintom of a person who don`t follow any regulative principle.

Don`t leave your work.

Spiritual Daltonism, an ill sickness.

The transcendental nature of the appearance and activities of the Sakti-avesa-avatar S.D.G.A.C.Bv. Swami Srila Prabhupada because his causeless mercy, are not subject to material time and space, are not the product of the karma of an ordinary human being and therefore His position of Acharya (spiritual master authorized) should not be displaced by the decision of any court in particular, witch decide to draw a volunteer to force, to use His work to his personal benefit, without being considered a rough case of imitation, as if were an museum article.

The GBC of ISKCON as “executives of devotion” implements the rituik sistem to give contradictory The Order of Guru as Representative of the Supreme Personality of God, Krishna, God in the earthly world, assuming the name of Srila Prabhupada, to move from His position of spiritual master authorized.

GBC considers even the most highly offensive to give the harimam initiation to a bhakta in the name of Srila Prabhupada, because according to them would be to blaspheme the Acharya already “dead and gone.”

Certainly the ghosts are offended when one chant Hare Krishna, but happens that this is not about a ghost.

We turn to the formula that if: (A = B), (B = C) What is the value of the devotee C if A=1 and B=1 where the absolute value of the unit (1) is permanent, always the same and never changes? Mahaksa Das says: “Not true, maybe in first grade math this holds true, but not necessarily in any of the higher maths. And there is the issue of apples and oranges.” Them is true becouse is an issue of apples and oranges of first grade of maths.

More even Mahaksa Das said: “It is a bogus idea.” How an idea can be bogus? The ideas are good or bad, but are. The monist says “This World is bogus.” But according to the Acintyaveda-aveda-tattua philosophy of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu the inconceivable unity and deference simultaneous, said that this world exists but is temporary. So the humble opinion of Mahaksa Das is bogus, and monistic in nature, like the impersonal nature of GBC due the lack of a personal authority responsible for his actions. When a corporation commits a fraud can not put prisoners to all shareholders, so corporations are impersonal and without a responsible head.

It is assumed that we must all become pure devotees acaryas (=1).

“Gentlemen, the offering of such an homage as has been arranged this evening to the acaryadeva is not a sectarian concern, for when we speak of the fundamental principle of gurudeva or acaryadeva, we speak of something that is of universal application. There does not arise any question of discrirninating my guru from yours or anyone else’s.”

The Final Order–A Very Misleading Paper

“I wish that each and every Branch shall keep their independent identity and cooperate keeping the Acarya in the centre. On this principle we can open any number of Branches all over the world.

Lord Chaitanya Defeats the Buddhists

Hare Krishna
PAMHO, AGTSP.

The Manu Samhita says that if one cheats a Brahmana and makes him eat contaminated food to degrade from his position, one has to spend about 100 years in the mansions andha Tamisra of hell, where the vultures and jackals will rip out the entrails, and then will be born as a vulture, a pimp or a buzzard. If he is a ksatriya 75 years, a vaisya 50 years, a Sudra 25 years and so on.

In the Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna says that if you do not offer the food are eaten only sin. It makes sense that foods not offered to Krishna are unclean by nature and therefore our mind is contaminated with material desires.
In addition that the unclean foods also contain bacteria that produce gas and phlegm.

There are the misleading concept that we are vegetarian, when in reality we are prasadians, we are vegetarians because Krishna is vegetarian, but in fact we go much further. The concept is that one must offers everything to Krishna and Krishna does not accept unclean foods. Another thing is that the plants do not suffer when you cut them because it has the conscience asleep.

Another distorted concept is that Ekadasi is only for eat whitout grains. Ekadasi means total fasting. But if you can not fast completely be allowed to eat foods that not contain grains and beans. It is also said in the puranas that if one eats on Ekadasi after taking a glass of water first is not considered an offence if eats without grains.

Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu highly recommend to Mother Sachi to do Ekadasi fast. After Srila Prabhupada’s departure gbc changed the Vaisnava calendar schema and say that if you were born in the West then you have to do the Ekadasi fast in the next day because there are ten degrees of the moon of difference with respect to India. This is another speculation for many reasons. Some of these are: First and foremost, we must understand that Sri Ekadasi Devi or Sri Papa Purusa not going to say, “Today we will give our influence over half the globe and the other half tomorrow.” No. It is not a matter of astrological karma of the people, but a planetary astronomical phenomenon. Even karmis have an international line for the date change. If the Lord Caitanya is in India and says: “Today is Ekadasi.” One can not speculate and say well but as I live in America I will do Ekadasi fast tomorrow. It is a matter of planetary astronomy not astrology. If we applied that rule to astrological charts would create great confusion, because if I was born on Sunday but the moon says that I was born on a Saturday.

Darwin’s Theory & Life From Chemicals [MP3 Audio Conversation with Psychiatrist]

God is light

Srila Prabhupada said that the western scientists are not scientist but believers. They believe that there every thing comes from nothing. They believe in the doctrine of the big bang where the cosmologic order comes from a big detonation. They believe that the live comes from the inert matter. They believe that the father of Darwin was a monkey. They believe that the stars of the sky are suns and not moons as the Vedas says. And more even, they believe that the science of the spiritual soul, the science of the reincarnation and the science of God are not science but a believe.

The science of god is a science as any other. We are scientist don’t sentimentality, that is our light in the darkness in order to achieve a higher light. Scientists claim that the proposition of the knowledge of God escapes any scientific treatment, but they are wrong. The Science of God is a science such as physics, chemistry or others and is also based on experimentation and observation and its results are completely verifiable.

But science of God is a transcendental science and its experiments are of different nature, since they imply a greater difficulty than the ordinary science experiments, because while the material experiments are performed with external elements in the science of God the object of experimentation is one self and it is not easy to do with us what we commonly do with other elements in scientific experiments.

In a scientific experiment is taken the element in its natural and pure form and is isolated from everything else. Since nature does not always manifest things in a pure and without mixing form, before it is necessary to isolate the object to study. Once this has been done, certain changes take place in the element to be observed carefully. Under different conditions, the item will react in different ways. That is how are discovered the laws governing the reactions of the element. The body of knowledge on these laws is called “science.”

The Science of God and of the conscious being is a question regarding the source of their consciousness. The being neither exists in pure form, as it is conditioned by its partnership with the body consisting of five material elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether), the five senses of perception (sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell) are also the five senses of action (speech, walking, grasping, evacuate and urine), and the five objects of the senses. The object of the sight is light, the object of the touch is the texture, the object of hearing the sound, the object of the smell is the fragrance and flavor is the object of taste). There are too the three subtle senses, (the mind, the intelligence and the false ego). The mind is the sense of thinking feeling and desire. The intelligence is the sense of determination to discriminate, and the ego is the sense of the identification with this body. Moreover, the vision of the element experience (the being) is stained by the six enemies of the conditional soul: lust, anger, greed, lewdness, rancor and gluttony.

So the first condition of a scientific experiment is the isolation and purification of the element to experiment. This is not easy to achieve. We can easily manipulate objects that are outside of us, we can set off a hydrogen bomb, or send a man to the moon, but when it comes to doing something to change the soul from former association with external objects we are in front of something different.

Human nature has a tendency to ridicule what is difficult to achieve. This partly explains the attitude of the scientists at the science of God. But there are many people who, despite their apparent difficulty, have carried out experiments in theirs self, and the science of God is the result of the generalizations made by them. The detailed treatment, accurate and systematic (scientific) that makes the laws, stages, classes and conditions of the various experiments of the science of God easily convince anyone that takes place that the science of God is, wherever you look, a science.

There are two questions we need to try to establish if a body of knowledge can be called science: 1 • How extent has come to describe the nature of the object that looks? 2 • How necessary or absolute laws that are discovered?

Judged in the light of these questions, we conclude that the science of God is the only one can be called truthfully science and is the only science that deserves that name, because is the science that gives us knowledge, the basic science of all sciences and its laws are the only necessary laws.

Experimental, empirical or expeculative science based on the bind faith, feeds on doubt and holds that the doubt of shadows is what will lead us to light, something that would not survive a rigorous scientific review. The actual science is a failure like ordinary scientific instrument. The development of modern science has led scientists to accept that they are unable to discover the true nature and laws of an object.

Not surprisingly, therefore, in this age of scientists, will find the science of God as a sign of decline and as an effort to escape from everyday reality. But what strange is that the same scientists who swear by the truth and the wideness of judgment and not accept or reject anything that has not been approved or disapproved scientifically, usually adopt a more anti-scientific position at the science of God and all its postulate without stopping to proof scientifically.

From the time of Galileo and Newton scientists have “believed” that the world is a great machine governed by purely mechanical laws. Even in the twenty-first century, the human brain has come to be regarded as an intricate machine governed only by mechanical laws of cause and effect. As well, it has destroyed the concept of free will of man, and morality and religion ceased to be meaningful to science. That man was just a machine, and all the interrelationships between man and the world and their peers, were nothing more than a by-product chemical, thus making the man as another zoo specimen over the nature, the homo-sapiens.

But at the emergence of the electron in the scientific arena, produces a total revolution. Discarded the myth of the mechanical structure of the universe and it became known that the electron-recognized as the last unit the physical world is not ruled by mechanical laws. The electron seemed completely free in their behavior. “The law of chance” a presupposition of science have no meaning for him. If there was any law that governs the behavior of the electron, this was “the law of indeterminacy,” Said professor Heisemberg. The apparent determinism in the events and the uniformity of nature, were illusions created by the operation of a multitude of electrons.

There is no determinism in the events, but in the smallest piece of matter with which the former may have experienced physical, is when the illusion of determination appears. This apparent determinism in large-scale events is statistical in nature’. “Dirac describes this as follows: “When you notice any atomic system in a state, the result will not be generally determined, for example, if the experiment is repeated several times under identical conditions, it is possible to have several different outcomes. If the experiment is performed many times, you will find that each particular outcome will be achieved only in a fraction of the total number of times. So we can say that there is a probability of obtaining such a result indefinitely every time you perform the experiment. This theory allows us to calculate the possibility. “Thus, the laws of physics are not necessary are not fully determined. Are just laws of probability based on the mathematical law of averages. The ordinary laws of science are illusory.

Since scientists have reduced all matter to some kind of “unconscious energy.” But is obvious to deduce that the existence of Energy can only be conceived from a “Conscious Start” or that Energy is derived from a Supreme Consciousness, this is supported by great scientists like Einstein, Eddington, James Jeans and JBS Haldene, who has concluded the following: “These material world has been taken as a world of blind mechanism, this material world is actually a spiritual world seen very partial and imperfect … The truth is that neither matter nor force or any physical thing, but Mind-Personality is the central factor of the universe.” In conclusion, the source of Energy is not material, there is no evidence that the Energy comes from an inert element, but conscious.

While scientists can only conjecture about the existence of The Principle Conscious that sustains this universe, the science of God provides direct, explicit and secure knowledge of this principle. Lighted with the knowledge of that energy, according to physicists, that pervades the universe, is the spiritual energy of which all we are made.

The principle behind of energy (The Supreme Consciousness) manifests Him Self in the form of this external world and is so subtle that will always remain beyond the physical sciences.

Only those who have eyes impregnated with ointment of the light can understand this subtle spiritual principle.

This basic spiritual principle can be proof at science of light as any other scientific principles. Who possess the energy is none other than The Source of that energy.

We can illustrate this by reference to physics, witch is not only more advanced today, but also has relation with all other basic sciences.

Consider first, the questions regarding knowledge of the true nature of the object under study and compare, from this point of view, the results obtained in physics and those obtained with the science of light.

The physicist, trying to discover the true nature of matter, found that the smallest particle of matter -even smallest tip of a pin, – is composed of millions of electrons. Then when try to study the nature of these electrons, is that are “Incorporeal electric charges”

The energy exists separate from matter. However, while the electrons are charges of incorporeal electricity, sometimes perform like particles and sometimes like waves. Thus Eddington suggested they should be called “wavelets” to indicate its dual nature. But the real source of the “wavelets” and the nature of the electrons seem to be hidden. If are not anything charged with electricity but the electricity in it self, the question remains: What ultimately is energy? The answer: Energy is a process.

From what process the energy is? What or Who is the keeper of that process? The Energy always belongs to the Energetic or “The keeper of Energy.” A process concern to move a thing, act or do something. And Physicists have been unable to answer these questions and maybe never they possibly will. Since all things have reduced as just “energy” and don’t have anything more where to address these questions. So physicists are unconscious of the true nature of subject matter (Energy), because all can say about it is: “Not knowing what it is.” Eddington said: “Something unknown is doing something we ignore, we are reduced to that theory.”

The only basis on nescience is the lack of light, yet, the darkness does not offer any resistance in the presence of light. If we situate at the light, then, is there fear of darkness? Why we don’t want to place ourselves in the light? Because fear to loose the enjoyment. When in fact the source may not be lack what bestow. If there is light in the shadows, how much more there will be at light?

The energy can not be different from energetic. If we see a light bulb, it is because we know that this energy comes from a plant that contains huge amounts of energy. There are beings of light and beings that born grow and live in the darkness and could never conceive the existence of clear days, however this does not mean that there is not light.

While the people of light don’t doubt because they know that: “The man who doubt is lost.” Light presents itself and relies on blind faith and surrender of will and reason, what makes empirical science and the science of light in two completely different branches.

The science of light nothing has to do with God and the free man. In the light God and men are linked to love. The God of love is not just the creator that controls and destroys the universe, but the cowherd boy who plays with his associates. The God of Love is who says: “I am not free; I am controlled by my partners at all.” In the kingdom of Light is not God who performs the domain, but Love. To Love is the summum bonum.

At first sight the science of light does not appear to be in a more advantageous position than any of the physical sciences in terms of its laws, because the man spoke of a loving relationship with God.

As electrons God and men have freedom of action and therefore, almost impossible the existence of a law applicable to their conduct.

As much energy as the energetic are full bound by love and the laws of love are fully determined. This is not because the laws of probability or the laws of averages-in-mathematics and illusory erroneously based the physical sciences, but of objective laws and necessary. For example, in love there is a law of attraction and reciprocity comparable to the law of universal gravitation in the physical sciences.

It is possible that the law of gravity ceases to have effect; modern science can not in any way guarantee the validity of this law. But the law of attraction in love never loses its force, as is guaranteed by the source of all light. Perhaps some day they leave the fruit trees do not fall to the ground, but never bloom love someone without being attracted by the powerful magnet of Divine Love. Light provides the latest science is absolute, since it is the source of all existence.

Nobody expects to exploit anyone, but is the pure love without passion or selfishness. In full satisfaction, there is nothing more to find, but in love there are never satisfied, that is the great misfortune. Love is an insatiable thirst for more perfection in Love. Love is the negation of every loving satisfaction and creates a vacuum that can only be satisfied with more amounts of love. Therefore love is essentially dynamic, vital and rises as a wave.

A skilled electrician can convert the energy in both cold and heat. Maybe no one knows anything about electricity, but the electrician says: “Push the button and get light,” I want the electric light and I said “Push the button.” And if I do so, then there will be light, that’s all. So, what is the use of becoming an electrician?

We in this lower world, behind of the bright reality, perhaps one day will discern a healthy and youthful vision between substance and shadow. Light descends from their domains to release prisoners from darkness. Those who reached the upper world that refuse to get involved in worldly affairs and never come down from this world to prove any of the fruits of the world below. What they can offer the cave? Who is to deceive oneself with illusions after seeing reality?

Who would like, even dazzled by the light of the Divine contemplate; discuss the shadows of justice or the images they project the shadows? The transition from darkness to light and vice versa affects the vision. The science of light no one is confused because it knows that is our constitutional position and feel compassion for those who are found in the dark.

The soul of man has the ability to distinguish light, but it is necessary to turn to where the light is to observe it. Search light is in us an innate sense, but is asleep; we can say we have maimed the spiritual meaning of life.

Isolate the item to test, it means we have to deviate away from the ephemeral world of darkness to see light, to perceive the reality and the glow that illuminates everything, which is the ultimate destination, under the guidance of someone that actually has seen the light of day, who knows the art of seeing light.

The duty of those who have seen the light make it known to others. As the ignorant act with attachment to the result, those who have seen the light have to act but without attachment to the result. Once you have seen the light of reality, it is necessary to descend to the caverns of the world and work for the good of all and recognize each image for what it is and life is not a dream as if that were the great reward.

This represents the ascent of the soul from material world to spiritual enlightenment. In the beginning the soul is dazed by darkness and is easy to imagine that if one dazzles with light of fire, the more do you not blind the sunlight?

This is the evolution of light. But Darwin’s theory says that what the deadly generated the live. At present, the people is found of Darwin’s theory: the stone produces the consciousness, that from the unconsciousness the consciousness came, it created the dead life, that of the inertia generated energy, the body is made of inert material, the body is never really alive, though seemingly alive, what gives life to the body is the soul. The objective of Darwin´s evolution is reject, we detest, yet the ghost of Darwin’s theory has swallowed the whole world. It is difficult to make people understand that consciousness is more valuable the stone, the stone is difficult to produce consciousness, with science is more valuable, and the stone is less valuable. Therefore, a more valuable thing you can produce something less valuable, but it is difficult to explain how a less valuable thing can produce something more valuable.

Light is the key to knowledge. Let The Truth guide us out of the unreal, lead us from darkness to light, lead us from death to immortality. We must not go to the light to the darkness. Light ideology is the ideology of God, not an ideology limited someone in particular. The formula of the Light of God differs from the standard Vox Populi, the opinion of the masses, who make light of the darkness and darkness light.

Light a candle being communicated with another candle, but burn separately, are of the same quality. If one remains in the shadows, unable to enjoy the facilities of the light, and if we remains in the light, will not be disturbed by the darkness of the shadow.

The relative truth is like the heat, because it relies on the strength of the Absolute Truth, as heat builds in the power of fire, more heat is not fire. Not remain in the dark pit. Go outside to light. If we are in darkness, we can speculate and invent ideas about what the sun is. This is a kind of knowledge. However, if you emerge from the darkness and see the sun, if we come to light, our knowledge is complete. We can speculate about the Sun in the darkness, but the best process is to come to the sunlight and see for ourselves.

By wielding the sword (which is composed of light), the dark era of darkness, is divided and a portal opens in a new age of truth. This is the knowledge of light where darkness has been separated from him. If someone follows this path of knowledge, means he has personally made towards the path of perfection.

In ordinary life we find a king in a matter or another. This knowledge, however, is sovereign over all other knowledge and the rest is on him. This knowledge is the king of education, is the biggest secret of all secrets, and because it gives direct perception of being a means of illumination, is the perfection of religion. This knowledge is confidential sovereign and pure. This knowledge is also important, this means that this knowledge beyond this world, it is eternal and runs happily. God is light; ignorance is darkness, where there is God there is no ignorance. Associated with the light is to dispel ignorance. Darkness and light are two completely different concepts. There is no communion between light and darkness. Light the darkness and the darkness did not prevail. We are the children of Light. Seeing the Light, we see both the source and all its clarity and the things that were not in the dark. One can not see without light.

People who have lost their vision due to the darkness of the present age will find the path that light illuminates the heart and the sleeper sees that the light being encountered. It is also a fact that the blossom flowers in a natural way when you get the sunlight it needs. When one comes to the Supreme Light that knows everything, you get perfect knowledge and will see everything clearly.

Darkness can not produce light: when light comes darkness disappears. Our conscience, the soul is the light within us. When the light comes with it is the understanding of the light. This is light of light, and we must be eternally conscious that above us, our ego in particular, there is another land, the land of understanding, there is our refuge and our unity. We must make this radical change, this level is our refuge, this world is a prison house, and a graphic account of this broad understanding, should be the basis for understanding the land, otherwise there is danger of imitation. We need to cross this “Hindenburg Line.”

The Light of the world should be scrutinized and analyzed, and found that there exist many units. In a higher sense, light means soul. Spiritual energy is higher than the living entities and the Supreme soul.

The light of conscience is proof of the power of spiritual soul. We can not see the soul, yet we see the symptoms, we can not see electricity, yet we can see the bulb illuminating, demonstrating the presence of electricity, similarly when we see the symptom awareness of the soul.

Just as a laser beam can eradicate the cancer of a body, any disease of material existence will lighten from our hearts by the purifying influence of divine rays of light emanating from the Divine, which can be recognized by their own light.

The Sun, or who shows us all by the Light, the Light, that refulgence, that is God, Who is the cause of creation, maintenance and material dissolution. This “refulgence” is the Soul. The Soul is the one who gives birth to the world, who gives us an understanding of the environment, the world of perception. Every perception is possible only because of the Soul. The word light, which usually means the sun, refers to the soul, which like the sun reveals all.

Light is reflected in the objects transparent, not opaque in order to give a new light. The highest degree of human civilization consists of spiritual Light.

Did man really walk on the Moon ???

http://moonmovie.com/moonmovie/default.asp

» Posted By gaurasundar das On August 3, 2009 @ 6:05 pm

I was a school boy in the days before the supposed trip to the moon, when suddenly radio, newspapers and television had a huge worldwide publicity about the greatest event in human history: “The trip to the moon.” In the mouth of the whole world were the most currents information on this unusual event. In schools for pupils of all levels the homework was the same, “The trip to the moon.” All the walls of the classrooms were filled with graphics and scale models of rockets, lunar module, that were like a brainwashing and as child one could not be more than marvelous the great unity of thought around a single matter.

When finally, after too much waiting: “The lunar landing.” And just at midnight!

Nobody could let pass the good fortune to see that.

The whole world was praying and begging “God please, protect the astronauts, watch each of theirs steps and bring them back safely.”

The excitement knew no limits.

At last the moon landing: And the famous sentence: “A small step for man but a giant leap for mankind.” Nothing more cold! And everything went as it was set to lines, anything wonderful or extraordinary astronauts grabbed lunar samples, they did what has do and goodbye, everything went perfect.

After that, the faces of people were disappointed as the people when they see a bad movie and say, “Give me my money back.”

We have seen others odysseys as when a few simple adventurers reach Mount Everest, the major manifestations of human emotions, tears, hugs, rolling on the floor, ecstasy.

In contrast to the lunar odyssey travel, everything seemed a robotic.

I believe that as much as scientists or astronauts however may be great warriors; in the bottom of theirs chest should have a little heart, and when he stepped on the moon should said “Oh my God I can not believe this is beyond ofdescription, I feel my mind turning, I’ want to kiss the floor, my parents who are there down on earth, I want you know that I love you! I dedicate this trip to all the children of the world, to my girlfriend a hug, I feel a knob in my throat, please forgive me, I can´t talk. Thanks to all my comrades, forgive me my offenses, oh please but I can not control!

Karl, Hare Krishna.

Your question is very good and I think you are a genuine seeker.

||If Fox TV had a special that said Srila Prabhupada’s life’s work was a hoax, the reaction would be… what exactly? ||

If you find that your master is a hoax, then abandon him, denounce him and seek a genuine and authorized master.

There is certainly a difference between the two classes of seekers of the truth.

Empirical science is a fraud to discover the truth, because this science is based on relative truths and the highest scientific conclusions will always be another relative truth.

So whenever a new theory emerges that displaces the old. Empirical science leads us to conclusions not based on common sense, are always hanging on like monkeys, and when this thing fails, the science falls. As humans we need rational answers. For example “StMan” who claims to be a fanatic (religion without philosophy) of science, based his entire belief in the formula “1 square seg.” Indeed it is irrational; because we know that the square time doesn’t exist in this dimension. So as there is not “1 at square” in math because 1×1=1. In conclusion, 1 sec. squared = 1 sec. That is a nonsense, which does not mean anything. In mathematics there is no square root either because 0.33 x 0.33 = 0.99 is not one. So the fundamental math’s unit is imperfect, making mathematics useless as a tool to know the truth.

Sócrates said that God speaks through mathematics, mathematics depends on God, but God does not depend on mathematics. The science can’t deny the existence of God. And for science is impossible to prove the existence of God mathematically. The existence of the relative truth is the proof of the existence of God, the embodiment of the supreme the absolute truth.

When science discovers the personality of God, then we can believe in science.

“Persons addicted to hypothetical truth, should distinguish the ocean of All truths. These are the absolute truths of spiritual science and not the conclusion of imaginary speculation under the thralldom of the deluding energy of Godhead.” (Bhaktisiddhanta)

“The materialistic demeanor cannot possibly stretch to the transcendental autocrat who is ever inviting the fallen conditioned souls to associate with Him through devotion or eternal serving mood.” (Bhaktisiddhanta)

“Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized soul can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the truth.” Bhagavad Gita 4.34

“Although only his own interest is the centre of their lives, the whole world suffers from four kinds of defects such as: “1. Make mistakes, 2. are in illusion, 3. has imperfect senses. 4. Have the tendency to deceive.” (Veda)

The truth that has been revealed by the scriptures is free from contaminations. But the realizations of the seekers of the knowledge of these realities are with or without fault in accordance with the degree of their individual realization.

This human form of life is an opportunity to inquire about the Supreme true. You are invited to continue inquiring. If you get an ideology better than this, please let me know.

STMan (Maybe, Stret Man or maybe, Is The Mandking)?

Well, if the slightly dust on the moon fall faster due to the vacuum of the atmosphere, then how faster should the astronauts fall when they jump and run, why then they fall slow motion?

First of all, remember that the moon is the 5% of the size of the earth. Where on earth a man weighs 200 pounds on the moon weighs only 30 pounds as much , and if he is be free of the weight of the atmosphere pressure of 1 ton, if this man jump on the moon I assume this man goes very high. You say he will fall rapidly. You says “fairly quickly” It seems to me some thing like a fairy tale, we have to believe that becouse is a dogma of faith. Or we dont have the inteligence to understand it.

Can we imagine what the weight of dust on the moon is? The dust will fall rapidly whith a magnetic moon and a metallic dust.

Remember that we are fighting aganinst a conspiracy and the great powers of the world are behind it. This is the eternal war of good versus evil.

It’s very strange that a simple Stret man is so fervent fan of NASA, and coincidentally use this particular name and not another alias. These kinds of behavior are not of an ordinary common man.

Another thing when the NASA says that in the moon is about 200 degress of temperature every body understand “Of the atmosphere” bot you answers by the NASA and defends they and says: “Not they reffers to the foor of the moon.” Why the NASA never sayd “the temperature of the floor.”?
Hare Krishna

Sriman: Ok there is no any heavy atmosphere, is good to me, becouse so the dust go most hight, and either is almost any gravity to drawn the dust “fairly quickly”?

The lies have sort legs.

I think you are a spokes man of the nasa`s staf.

Hare Krishna Sriman Prabhu

On the moon there is no air currents and the force of gravity is minimized; so that the dust raised due moon landing must lifted a big cloud of dust that should last several days of the moon.

Hare Krishna Sriman Prabhu:

On the moon there is no air currents and the force of gravity is minimized; so that the dust raised due moon landing must lifted a big cloud of dust that should last several days of the moon. Whats the answer to this?

» Posted By gaurasundar das On July 11, 2009 @ 7:37 pm

The NASA said that the in moon is about 200 degrees of temperature, but if there is no atmosphere, then how is too hot?

» Posted By Gaurasundar Das On June 13, 2009 @ 11:09 pm

The nasa says: “These is 6:00 PM in the moon, not too hot not too cold.” But in the moon film the shadows are 3:00 PM.

Hare Krishna to all.

I was 11 years old when I saw the moon landing, and suddenly I began to laugh very strongly and I said: “This is a fake.” And my family said: “But this is the “NASA” and the whole world is watching that.” I said: “Can you believe that three men involved into a small box can do all that? Today a TV transmission in real time requires a big truck.

Krishna Personally Carries the Necessities of His Devotee

Hare Krishna Dandavats.
Srila Prabhupada Ki jay!

There is a story of a Brahmana who was reading the Bhagavad Gita when he found the verse that says: “But those who worship Me with devotion, meditating on My transcendental form-to them I carry what they lack and preserve what they have.” Bg.9-22 then the Brahmana said: this is not so because I am who goes out each day to look for food and what I need, I will remove this verse from the book.” And the Brahmana slashed the verse from the book. The next day when the brahmana went to collect their charity a child come to his home loaded with enough food and told to his wife: “your husband command me with all this for you and he also hit Me and look what he made Me in My shoulder a cut.” The brahmana´s wife was surprised by what was happening but accepted the food. Meanwhile the brahmana worked hard all day without achieving collect anything. When finally at night returned home and told his wife: “I could not collect anything today” The wife said: “what you say? If here came a child and brought all this food and even told me that you’ve beaten him? The brahmana was perplexed to what was seeing and hearing, then he went to the room and saw the Bhagavad Gita that was open on the page where he had cut the verse and ask to his wife: “You’ve touched the Bhagavad Gita?” “No” said his wife. And then he realized that Krishna was who personally had taken him all what he needed.

    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.

  2. Vamshi says:

    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!
    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!
