Where Angels Fear to Tread

Hare Krishna
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada
All this is new to me. I have been distributing the 1986 Second Edition Revised and Enlarged copys og Bhagavad Gita as it is. Is that not bona fide after all? The divine nectar of distributing Prabhupada’s books is certainly felt everytime someone takes a book and gives some donation. And in the evening in the reading hours it is like the Shatras are talking to me instead of me reading them. How could this be possible if they were not bona fide any longer?
help me understand

The Power of the Disciplic Succession, Guru Parampara

Pamho. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada
Yes, this example put in here with the postman is so true. I myself had not stayed for more than two or tree months in the Embassy of Vaikunta before I went with the sankirtan devotees up and down the coast and mountains to distribute the shastras in the towns and villages, so you can imagine that I was not a learned scholar in any respect(as I still am not!). Powered only by the unconditioned mercy of the devotees and by a drop of Krishna’s grace was it possible for me to make anyone take some books. Many times I didn’t even have to open my mouth to speak my sankirtan mantra to make people take. I did only have to look at a soul and the person would ask me how much to give. These experiences made me realize more and more the power of the preaching mission. As long as one sticks to the instructions given by the pure devotees and the spiritual Master, nothing is impossible. For the postman to know the adress and the name of the recipient so he/she can deliver, he/she only has to know how to read. This is one of the great wonders of this harinam sankirtana preaching mission. Dear Madhuvisa dasa, Thank you again for giving these classes, I don’t think this one is too long as it is so full of nectar.
Ki Jay. Hare Krishna

Dharma? Sanatana Dharma?

Pamho,Hare Krishna
Thank you so much for your classes and for taking time to answer the questions. Krishna is the Father of all ,and then he apears as a small child on this planet. One has a different way of tending to a child than to a farther. Naturally one want to protect and serve the child, and the father is often the one one comes to for protection. This mysterious tranzendental way of Krishna to apear is so wonderful.
Thank you again for sharing your divine knowledge
All Glories to Srila Prabhupad

Just What is the Bhagavad Gita?

Pamho ,Madhudvisa dasa .
It’s with great pleasure I recieve your lessons-letters. It’s a real inspiration. When I chant on my japabeads the mind many times wanders off into the mundane. Your electronic preacing helps me more to greet every bead like one of the Gopies of Vrindavan. The meditation gets a lot easier. In the chapter 18 text 66 of the Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Krishna says :”Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinfull reactions. Do not fear.” This verse is of uttermost importance today as there is so much turmoil and fighting in the name of religion as it’s never been since the great battle on Kuruksetra. I can hardly wait untill everybody on the earth in every town and village has gotten this message and understands it in their hearts. Meanwhile I will eagerly consume the nectar of your letters and pray for your health so as to keep up this great work.
Gauranga Haribol !

Bhagavad Gita Podcast — Introduction

Pamho,All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Yes ,this is so wonderfull. I think Krishna let the internet be invented just for the Shastras to be even more available all over the planet now. And for people living in desolated areas can also have the nectar of Srila Prabhupada’s books. Personly I have great joy listenig to the nectar from the first soundclip and at the same time following the text in my own copy. But you must have another edition than the one I have, since there is some slight differences in the text. I have both the 1972 edition and the second edition printed in 1986. Is there really a brand new edition now? Can you tell me a little about that? I will keep downloading all these classes in great excitement.

“I am not this Body.” Easy to say…

Haribol ,Prabhu.
In my younger days when I was fit and healthy and going out on the sankirtana book distribution carrying a bag of Shastras on my shoulder and a pile of books in my hands(I found that carrying a big pile was very effective to impress the public people so they’ll take some books), I took to exercise my inner belly muscles with situps and a method called Pilates. Then an older sankirtan devotee told me to stop and do that as to not get too attach to my body. I did follow his advise. I stopped doing all exersice. So after some years my back and left knee started to hurt a bit.Later after some more years one day my back just gave in and got what the doctors call a prolaps in the lower spine. My left knee got all stiff too. A very painfull and slow healig condition that I still struggle with. I know this is my own karma from the past coming back to me. As it is today,I cannot walk around with anything heavy in my hands, nor can I walk for long on flat roads. I get a bit sad about it sometimes and thinking I should not have listened to that devotee and what he told me even when he was only wishing me well. Than still my muscles would have been strong enough to carry a full grown fat man, not to speak of a pile of books. I have accepted my condition and I am not complaining about it, but I do think about this devotee sometimes and I feel I am making offence when I think like that. Anyway I do regret that I didn’t close my ears only for that certain moment and kept on doing my training thing. So it is important to think for oneself sometimes and not only follow blindly the advice of wellwishers. Krishna has special lessons for everyone in person, no doubt.
Ki Jay . All Glories to Srila Prabhupad.

    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!
