Human Life is not for working hard like animals

Hari Bol Prabhuji,

Please accept my humble obeisances, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I thank you for your reply. I will follow up on you advice. Also, lately I do not go to the ISKCON temples anymore. I do have a couple of devotee friends who, like me, are also aware of the deviations. Occasionaly persons come to us and start attacking us. They talk about God and why he is not helping the poor and why is there war. Thanks to Srila Prabhupada’s books and also your articles, I can give them a fitting reply but when seeing with how much anger there is in them, I say to them: I can answer you but it would only hurt you. Since he is not ready to accept Bhagavad Gita As It Is, how will he be ready to hear? So I have decided to altogether stop visiting any temple (both ISKCON and Hindu) and also, as far as possible, avoid non-devotee association. Again I thank you Prabhu.

Hare Krishna,

Hari Bol Prabhuji, Please accept my humble obeisances, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I am living in Western Europe. After reading your article, isn’t it so that I should accept all kinds of work (doesn’t matter what, since we are in a crisis here at the moment) as long as I take the result (the money) and spent it all on Krsna Consiousness (my own rented room, where I can chant and listen about Sri Krsna’s Names and Pasttimes, to buy ingredients, fruits to make Prasadam). Is this the idea? Since I got offered a job as a cleaner, I wanted to mold my life in this way. Previously I thought of joining ashrams in here or in India but now after the whole GBC fiasco, I thought of staying here in the material society and working hard and earning the money which I spent 100% on my own progress of Krsna Consiousness. Also by buying Original Srila Prabhupada books and distributing them, since here I see modified books being distributed. Is this idea a good one? Please advice Prabhuji, I thank you in advance.

Hare Krishna,

The Moon — Sadaputa’s is the Bona Fide ISKCON Opinion?

Hari Bol, Please accept my pranams, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

So you believe in the moon-landings?

Couple of things to think about:
-Why did they go only in the 60s? I mean, why did the humans only go in the 60s there and since then only probes?
-Alot of people, like myself, would like to believe the moon-landings and book a ticket to go on vacation there, why this cannot happen?
-Did you with your own eyes, see the moon-landings? No, you saw it on television.
-Why did Armstrong, hit that american investigator when he asked him to swear on the bible to “prove” that he went to the moon?
-Did you investigate how many times they tried to get to the moon before it was succesfully done by Armstrong and his crew?
-Did you read Srila Prabhupada’s Sri Isopanisad book? He explains how humans can get knowledge (ascending or descending process), what the fault is of the ascending process and the 4 defects of the humans who use their senses to gain knowledge (by the ascending process).

Be critical, do not believe everything on television. And yes, you can fool the entire humanrace, because we are now in Kali Yuga, we want to gratify our senses, we want to lord it over Material Nature, and fot this we will be bewildered by others who also want this goal.

There is only one science and that is the science of the soul, who takes it to Krishna Consiousness. Every other subject, on the material platform, is none-sense. These atheists, use their senses, via the ascending process to gain knowledge, hijacking the term science and using this term for their acquired knowledge. Thus one person bewilders all those who chooses to believe persons who have gained knowledge through their senses. Hope it is clear now.

Hare Krishna!

Srimad-Bhagavatam Set Original 30 Volumes Available Again!

Hari Bol Prabhuji, Please accept my pranams, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I read an article on iskcon times by Chanchalapathi Dasa Prabhuji.
This is the article:

It starts with the verse:

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto – 1.14.10
apapesu sva bhrtyesu
balenapakva buddhina
papam krtam tad bhagavan
sarvatma ksantum arhati

However, when I go to and go to Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 1, Chapter 14, verse 10: I see:

paśyotpātān nara-vyāghra
divyān bhaumān sadaihikān
dāruṇān śaṁsato ‘dūrād
bhayaṁ no buddhi-mohanam


This is an other verse. When searching the verse in the article, I find it in Canto 1, Chapter 18, verse 47:

My question is, which one is the correct version? Because I thought that both ISKCON Times and ( were talking of and distributing the original Srila Prabhupada books.

Thanks in advance.

Hare Krishna,

    Hare krishna Prabhuji.,Dandvat Pranaam
    May i know about the author of the book”Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita As It Is” named mukund das prabhu.Had he any personal association with Srila Prabhupada.

    • This book is a compilation of direct quotes from Srila Prabhupada speaking about his own life. The author is Srila Prabhuapda, all Mukunda did was compile the quotes and he did a good job of it. He wrote a bit of rubbish on the last 2 pages but apart from that he did not write a single word in the book. It is a collection of Prabhupada quotes and the author of this book is Srila Prabhuapda.

  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.

    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!

      Madhudvisa dasa
