The Four Philosophies: Impersonalism, Yoga, Personalism and Voidism

Dear Madhudvisa dasa
Sorry about my slow response. Allow me to first make a statement.
“All seekers who honestly try to find God, and do it with honesty, not being a hypocrite, deserve to find a way back to God. God’s mercy is boundless; it is our human understanding that limits generosity.”
Swami Prabhupada and Vishnujana Swami, no doubt were a voice of God, so was Francis of Assisi, and so were countless others …
God’s manifestation comes in different ways, depending on culture, time, and need. To be a true Swami Prabhupada follower takes a very special person, to be a follower of Francis of Assisi also required a very special person. Both to be admired, both to be followed by those who hear the calling…
To believe that a follower of Francis/or Swami Prabhupada is the only way back to God is somewhat naïve.
I for one believe my life, although not involved in any religious system at this time, is still a daily quest to life by the Golden Rule …To do on to others….knowing my short-comings and also knowing the peace I enjoy within… to assert that I don’t give my life to God, because I don’t chant a certain amount of Kirtan’s daily…leaves me sad for those who have such proclamation.
Having said that , my day often starts and ends with listening to Swami Vishnujana ….but I get the same presence of God when I listen to Carrie Underwood’s “How great thou art “
There are many roads to God…shortcuts generally fail…ISKON, after the demise of Swami Prabhupada certainly is prove of that.

Dear Madhudvisa
Thank you for your reply.
While I understand the concept of Karma, moreover see the validity of it; my point was that I as a father would not bring obstacles in my children’s path, on purpose, knowing the vulnerability of this action.
God created (through expansion) Maya, and if her sole function is to set obstacles in our path, then Krishna must have been aware of the consequences of this expansion/ action. So this begs further questions. What is the reason for us to go through misery before finding our way back to God? Moreover, since the material world was created through expansion from God within…, again why? Being but a very small part of God, before creation (expansion) must have been bliss, why the expulsion? God’s splendour…I don’t understand the need to break away, and then only trough countless births, and countless misery in this material world find my way back to where I was in the first place. Now if the purpose of our creation was to set in motion individual awareness, again, I for one would have rather been a little piece of God, without awareness of my own existence/soul.

Dear Madhudvisa.
Thank you for the article.

Being very much a beginner, moreover a humble student, I must nevertheless ask this question:
God (Krishna)who knows the past , the present , and the future of all living things, moreover has created all living things for his enjoyment; why the imperfection in our journey?
Free will (if it really exists) must remain free, free of punishment, moreover free of interpretations….
I, as a father of 3 children, obviously want the best for them. Setting obstacles in their way, with full knowledge these obstacles can, and likely will, create damage, seems ludicrous, if not cruel.
Since I know God is not cruel but wishes only my best, I don’t understand the purpose of our million year long journey.
Best wishes

Human Life is not for working hard like animals

Dear Madhudvisa dasa
Thank you for your informative news letters , moreover thank you for continuing Swami Prabhupada’s teachings. I am new to his teachings , and wish and pray Lord Krsna sends a true devotee to our remote place one day.
I would love to bath in the wisdom of a guru , who upholds Swami Prabhupada’s teachings. He can stay at our place for an extended period , in eastern Ontario Canada , on a lake , with lots of trees and nature all around us. I know it is a place with potential for a spirit filled sanctuary.
With best wishes to you, I remain a true seeker …

Do I have to give up my occupation to serve Krishna?

Dear Madhudvisa dasa.

Thank you for your web-site , moreover for the many links, I particularly enjoyed the history of the Hare Krsna movement.( What happened to the Hare Krishnas). This brings me to today’s comment and question :
Swami Prabhupada mentions , several times in the Bhagavad- Gita as it is , as well as in his book “The science of self….”the only way a devotee can advance is with the help of a REAL Guru….
Living in a rural Community in Eastern Ontario , and the unfortunate decline of the Krishna movement , moreover the difficulty knowing who is a real Guru , if contact is not in persons, is very difficult…. to say the least.
I am on chapter 14 in the Gita, have read several of Swami Prabhupada’s writings and feel comfortable
exploring, Thank you for your candid discussions, it gives me a feeling of warmth , toward your web-site.
Now my question : Is information available, who of the many “Gurus”, out there , is entirely devoted to the original message as given by Lord CAITANYA , and then carried on by Swami Prabhupada, with no changes , and or , omission to the original text. I realize this is a difficult question to answer , however , the Gita with the many changes , must be authorized by someone. It would help new devotees , to immediately eliminate contacts with these opportunists.

    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!
