Faith is Essential for Advancement in Krishna Consciousness

Hare Krishna Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

After I have taken to Krishna Consciousness I have started losing interest interest in my academic studies, now I get bad marks in the exams. Now I don’t want to have friends but at times I feel alone but I don’t like their association too.

When I start giving some interest in material life I do not find enough time to chant my 16 rounds, when I talk with ‘friends ‘ I feel guilty that I wasted my time, their talk about sex, and girls are unbearable to me.

Is it that when someone takes to Krishna Consciousness his material life starts to dwindle. Is it that Krishna is doing all this or due to my past karma? Or is it that I should not completely neglect my material life? My parents too are upset with me.

I am not able to balance material and spiritual life.
I want to go back to Godhead but my dwindling material life makes me fearful that I should concentrate on my material life. If I fail in material life will that in any way hamper my Krishna Consciousness?

I am not understanding what to do Prabhu!

Hare Krsna,
I am very happy Prabhu that your website is restored. This website has many important things like Prabhupada lectures, his pictures and most important are the Free Pdf downloads. If your website vanish then Srila Prabhupada’s original books will also vanish and that will be a disaster…
Prabhu, my email Id was suspended but fortunately it was opened again. While viewing your email How to accelarate Humanities… I clicked the unsubscribe option. Prabhu now what should I do? I donot want to start all over again.

Light of the Bhagawata (1984 — First Edition)

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Is this book printed after ISKCON was destroyed. Because I find that Hansadutta Swami is addressed as His Divine Grace.
Srila Prabhupada told that only spiritual master should be addressed as His Divine Grace, Godbrother His Grace and a Sanyasi His Holiness(letter to Brahmananda, 30 Jan 1967)

Hare Krsna,
Thank you very much Prabhu. I was waiting for this download. It is like continuation of the 10th canto. Actually Prabhupada has wrote the whole Bhagavatam but has split it into his many books. He was farseeing that we may use the Bhagavatam for other purpose like the sahajiyas. So he has split the most confidential parts of the Bhagavatam which starts from the 10th canto so that only a serious student will get access to the ever glorious Srimad Bhagavatam and virtually remain inaccessible to the rascals.

MS-DOS Prabhupada Vedabase / Folio Views

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
What are these New98 books?
I find them not very good. In one book it is written “Sri Aurobindo has attained some degree of realization…”N98.RTW3.3
But this Aurobindo is a rascal. He calls himself greater than Krsna and his followers worship him.
Which of the books can I use without any danger?
Were this books written by devotees during Srila Prabhupada’s physical presence and printed afterwards or are these new books?

Hare Krsna,
Prabhu, when I save something from folio vedabase the diactrical marks are not displayed properly. I have installed the balarama fonts but the same problem persists.

How to offer food to Krishna?

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
When we offer food to Lord Caitanya along with Tulasi-leaves, what do we do with those leaves after we honour the Prasadam? Should I eat them or place them at the Lotus feet of Lord Caitanya?

Hare Krsna ,
My family members do not allow me to cook alone. I know how to cook but the problem is they do not cooperate with me. They dislike anything devotional and says that I am behaving like a old man, I am ruining myself etc…For them devotion means a business deal. Sometimes the situation turns very worse. If I offer some fruits, milk and flowers and chant the rounds will it be good for devotional life or my offences due to eating sinful foods will not allow me to progress in devotion?
I hope the situation turns better in future.

KRSNA, The Supreme Personality of Godhead PDF Download

Hare Krsna,
Part 1 of ‘Krsna Book’ only opens half of the file and Part 2 shows only the first page/cover page. It is showing blank page and displays the message ‘Insufficient data for image’. What should I do Prabhu.

Srimad-Bhagavatam Original Edition PDF Download

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Can you upload the cover pages of the Srimad Bhagavatam, some of them are missing, some indexes are also missing.
Or, please give the reference of the picture number from each volumes which is used as the front cover and back cover. It will be very helpful. I don’t know if I will able to buy the hardcopy as I am still a student and it may take 8-10 years. Most probably I have to print it myself as I think the stock may finish till then.

How to Control the Mind?

Hare Krishna. I am totally convinced about Krishna conscious philosophy, but I won’t be accepting a guru in this lifetime. I am chanting 2-4 rounds daily and read SP books but just casual read. How can I maintain a balance in my life and lead a positive material as well as spiritual life and go back to godhead?

Maintaining a good health is a positive thing for being a spiritual aspirant. What does Krishna say about this in 6th chapter of Bhagavad Gita, dhyana yoga?

The History of Bhagavad Gita

Hare Krsna,
Prabhu, I have some doubts. The term epic is used by Prabhupada in many parts of his books but sometimes he chatises the peopje who call the historical facts as epic. Is there some contradiction?

My second question is can I chant at night like from 12 AM. I do chant at night. I am presently a student 17 years of age and I am unable to manage my time properly. I don’t have my own temple and my family members blasphemes anything devotional so I do most of the things without their notice and for me safest time is when they all fall asleep.

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
I have read in some versions of Bhagavad gita that the battlefield of
Kuruksetra is our body, the five pandavas are our five senses, Arjuna
is confused living entitity and Krsna is enlightened entity. I am
greatly confused. Why most people want to make us believe that Krsna
doesnot exists nor do Kuruksetra and Arjuna.

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Prabhu, which is the correct way of preaching? Because when I try to convince people that Krsna is The Supreme Personality of Godhead, initially they seem to be interested but later after some days, I find most of them atheist and rest still donot change their previous views.
I feel this like an insult to Krsna and I am the cause for it and then regret why on earth did I try to preach when it only results in offence to Krsna.

Where Angels Fear to Tread

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Are the books on the website authorised. Because I have downloaded some books of Thakura Bhaktivinoda and was greatly disturbed after reading the books. It doesnot comply as told by Prabhupada about his life and his teachings. Most disturbing was the Krishna Samhita and autobiography of Bhaktivinoda. I wanted to know more about him and ended up with confusion. Are these books also heavily edited? Do the Gaudiya math also do the same thing as the BBTi authors are doing nowadays i.e. Book Changes?

Srila Prabhupada’s Beautiful Transcendental Qualities

Hare Krsna,
Thank you Prabhu for replying me.Actually I become very much disturbed
after conversing with such people.
This was not the first time. I have personally met many such people
but it seems impossible to convince the atheists.
Prabhupada said that association is very powerful. Ajamila Brahmana
was also degraded just by bad association. I will try to avoid these
types of
persons as far as possible.
Also preaching tonondevotees is an offence. But to distinguish an
atheist from an ignorant is very hard.
Yours sincerely

they attacked Prabhupada with
words and used words like
moron, fool, rascal etc.They said that they belonged to Sri Sampradaya. The
other one said
that Lord Vishnu is no greater
than Siva. But when I gave the
evidences about Lord Vishnu’s
Supremacy from Prabhupada’s
books, she
started speaking ill of
Prabhupada and said that he

Very Difficult times for new Bhaktas…

Hare Krishna Prabhu.
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

How should we identify myself when someone asks me.. questions like’Are you from ISKCON?’
I know that ISKCON, Hare Krishna Movement, Gaudiya Matha are all bogus.
But if I say I donot belong to ISKCON then how should I identify myself?
Like when Srila Prabhupada was personally present on this planet,when devotees would say that they belong to ISKCON and then everyone understood.

Yours servant

Hare Krsna ,
Prabhu, I am in a difficult situation. Now I am in a college and residing in a hostel. Here the people are fully materialistic. They always talk about sex, women, modern science, drink, smoke etc. etc. They have almost ruined my whole consciousness. There are some mohammedan boys, with one I spoke about Krsna thinking that he is little interested- but I found him to be more interested in girls and thinks that God is formless. He did not accept anything I said and always tries to blaspheme the Vedas. He did not accept anything I said but rather believes in Darwin, Hawking etc etc. What do you think about these mohammedans? Have I done offence to the holy name by trying to speak about Krsna to them? There are also some Hindus who do not believe in God, some believe that God is formless, nature is God and anything rascaldom, within and ouside of my imagination. They always play sex songs, talk about girls.
Prabhu, now I find myself in a very difficult situation. I am now bound to associate with these materialists all day long. Everyone is trying to discourage me in practicing Krishna Consciousness. What should I do Prabhu.

Introduction To Bhagavad Gita Part One

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Yes Prabhu, you are right. It is indeed a very disastrous thing to hear from the mayavadis. Lord Caitanya has stressed so much not to hear from a mayavadi- I did not understand why did He say so. I thought they may say Krsna is formless or something like that but I never thought that they can drag Krsna to position of demigods, that too so professionally. They are not only envious of Krsna’s Personality but also of His Supreme position.
Everything Lord Caitanya said has been completely proved- my spiritual life actually became doomed, all my devotion has dried up. Now onwards I will take His instructions seriously and stop making any intellectual arrangement.

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Prabhu, please consider replying this letter. I will not mind if you reply late.
I found a man who was speaking something about the Bhagavad-gita. I knew that these is not good to listen unauthorized commentation on the Bhagavad-gita but out of curiosity and my foolish judgement I anyhow listened to it and then the disaster happened. He spoke something from the BG7.20 and said that man of less intelligence surrender unto demigods and also dragged Krishna to that category to say that we should not worship Krishna rather ‘-someone-’ else. Worshipping Krishna is wrong and such things.He blasphened Krishna in so many ways that I was left completely disturbed.
I know that he is wrong neither Krishna said any such thing but still I am disturbed after hearing such things. His poisonous talks are reverberating in my mind.From a few months I have started to lose all my attraction to devotional service. I am just following the four regulative principles and I have lost my attraction to chanting too!
I cannot also defeat him. Because he is quoting from the Bhagavad-gita with lots of knowledge on word jugglery and I will also quote from the Bhagavad-gita but without any grammatical and language strength.
Prabhu, please give me some advice what should I do. I have no one else to share my problems in spiritual life except you.I have my friends, family and so many things-but all are against devotional service at the first place let alone solving or listening to my problems, they will only increase my problems more.
Please forgive me Prabhu, if I annoy you by asking so many questions. But I accept all your advice and instructions because I am sure you will not say anything different from what Srila Prabhupada said. Otherwise you would have been somewhere in F-ISKCON holding some very high post rather than struggling to protect Srila Prabhupada’s movement.

Book Distribution Is Our Success

Hare Krishna Prabhu
Please accept my humble obeisances
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

I have a friend of mine who has been recently attracted to the Mayavadi philosophy and Yoga. I have tried many times to convince him of Krishna Consciousness but I do not know if it has affected him in any way.
I am thinking of gifting him the book- ‘The perfection of Yoga’ or ‘The path of perfection’. I am little confused. Can I present a Krishna Conscious Book to a Mayavadi. Will it be an offense?

    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
