i have heard that a guru is necessary for self realization where do i find one?

Hare Krishna!

A Guru is a must for self-realization because only a liberated soul can liberate a conditioned soul.A Guru must therefore a liberated soul.

How to know that a Guru is a liberated soul? By observing His conduct, not his words. How is he doing with his disciples. THere are some few signs that you can see for yourself who is a bona fide Guru:

1. When you approach him for answers to many many questions, even challenging and insulting questions, he will answer all with great patience, not because he wants to show his greatness but because he wants to liberate your mind.
2. He will ask “How are you doing? Do you need any help from me? What can I do to help you?”

It should also be noted that Krishna – The Supreme Personality of Godhead is the real Guru, his genuine devotees are his instruments to liberate you.YOu can only be liberated If Krishna wants to liberate you. So try to bind Krishna through the thread of supreme devotion and He will feel anxious to release you.Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Making the Best Use of a Bad Bargin

Things happened, are happening and will happen in our life according to our Karma. There is no point in changing the way things happen. The only thing we can change is our attitude by accepting them with calmness as we know Krishna is with us in the storm as much as in the pleasant day. So never forget this eternal Supreme Friend by chanting His holy name and constantly keep yourself enagaged in social service, taking His creations as He Himself.

Hare Krishna Prachi Sharma!

Anger is very common in human beings. We can say that no one is free from anger, it is just little or much.

The fact that you do not like anger and want to control anger is the first step in overcoming anger. From my little experience, anger can be under control.

Basically, when we get angry, we easily lose our wisdom, we are easily illussioned and misguided. People have different ways to deal with anger. They either express it freely with everyone around resulting in hurting, fighting with others or they can hurt themselves by depressing it. The first way is of course not favorable. The second way seems too much suffering.

The best way to deal with anger is to transcend it. How? First, by simply watching with curiosity what is going on within your body and mind when you get angry. Just watch with patience and curiosity, do not try to get rid of it. Then the anger will go away by itself. Second, remember Krishna, chant His holly name to transcend the negative thoughts. Chanting will surely purify your mind.

Thank you for speaking your mind.
Chant Hare Krishna, be happy and make others happy also!

Namaskar Swami Madhuvisa!

I am also a servant of Krishna and very much inspired by the Krishna conscious movement. Whenever I feel frustrated, don’t want to sing Kirtan but as soon as I remember “chant Krishna 24 hours”, I regain the inspiration to do Kirtan for half an hour. Yes, chanting and hearing the name of the Lord is best way to purify ourselves, to invite Lord to take a seat in our heart and stay there with us forever, hopefully.
Regarding the 4 types of people approaching Krishna, I am of the distressed so Krishna come into my life as I badly need His help. This is very selfish in the beginning but from my point of view, Krishna accepts that. He will come only when we call Him. Only in unfavourable situations, do I treasure His grace.I wonder how the people interested in wealth can approach Krishna. Kindly explain to me please.
Regarding your topic of “Making good use out of bad situation”, I agree with you that the only thing we can do is to accept it, to live with it, to surrender to Krishna and in such circumstances, the only thing we can ask from God is “My God, please give me more strength to endure this”. When the rain is over, the sunlight will come. We just need to be patient during the storm. Do you think so?

The Living Guru is Here–Are we Ready to Follow Him?

However, reading books is not enough. After reading, we must take the firm resolution to think, to say and to act accordingly as if it is our lifestyle. It is not dead knowledge, it is living knowdelge. It is something not only to be believed but to be lived.

Hare Krishna!

I agree with you that we should read Srila Prabhupada’ books everyday as a healthy habit. This is called outer-suggestion. Through the knowledge gained by reading, ponderring, understanding and realizing the profound wisdom, we will benefit enormously in our spiritual life which is Sat-Chit-Nanda.

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

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

    Prabhu Madhudvisa Dasa.Is Jagannath Krishna himself or is just an expansion of Krishna like Vishnu,Rama etc.In Iskcon lectures I heard that Jagannath is Krishna himself,they have proved this by saying a story from Skanda purana.Is this true or Iskcon lectures are just bogus?I found no video Prabhupad talking aboyt Lord Jagannath.Oh Prabhu kindly answer my doubts.Hare Krishna

    • Yes. Lord Jagannatah is Krishna Himself. It is Jagannatha [Krishna] Balarama and Krishna’s sister Subhadra.

      So Jagannatha is deity form of Krishna. He is representation of Krishna with His brother Balarama and sister Subhadra,

      It is deity manifestation of Krishna, Balarama and Lady Subhadra,

    Jai Govind

    I request you clear my doubts.I understand the complexities of life processes,cellular mechanisms and other natural phenomenon cannot be explained solely by reasoning and scientific theories as somewhere or other our knowledge is limited.I am a science student nd nature lover.After reading the article posted by you regarding the concept of the origin of life,a question arisen in my mind that krishna is all powerful,then, why he designed this universe in this complicated way?,why life originated? why he made all that dna etc matter space?what is his true nature? why are we given these bodies these reasoning abilities?why krishna waited for billions of years and made us take birth here?why prakrati and purush got seperated? who were those dinosaurs etc for souls are eternal were those dinosaurs primitive and other organisms we only? are there any planet lest earth having life?why will happen atlast for we are ultimately destined to reach our eternal govind? why doesn’t he appears now and clear all these doubts for one thing is sure that if even he messages in some ways we will submit to him?why krishna is so naughty why has he made everything complicated?I know these are childlish questions but still worthy to be answered…..

    I am a krishana devotee.I feel as if there is pure love for him deep in my heart.But at the same time I do believe in science.Sometimes i find myself stuck in between science emotions belief and devotion.I want to understand my Govind,I want to understand myself.

    I request my friends to please give answer to these questions.I hope i will get atleast answers of a few questions as i found this site quite appealing.

    Radhe krishna

    • Hare Krishna Jai Govind

      To clear your doubts you have to become Krishna conscious. Because unless you become Krishna conscious you will not be able to understand what Krishna consciousness is and you will remain continually bewildered.

      All these questions are irrelevant. You seem to accept that Govinda exists, that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Now you have to just surrender to the idea that you are His servant. And then you need to find out practically how you can engage in the service of Krishna. And to find out how to do this you need to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. And in the process of becoming Krishna conscious all your other questions will automatically be answered.

      The scientists can not understand anything. They only have very fragmental information about everything they study. The information we can gather through our material senses is very limited. There are so many things we can not perceive through our material senses. So they can not understand what they can not perceive.

      So instead of just speculating all these questions and being bewildered like this it is better to just admit that in our conditioned state with our very limited mind and our material senses we can not hope to understand Krishna or even this material world which is created ultimately by Krishna.

      The way to understand these things is to become Krishna conscious. We can not understand without becoming Krishna conscious.

      So you have to learn how to become Krishna conscious… That is the answer to all your questions. And Krishna consciousness is a science and that science is very elaborately presented in the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!
