Worshiping the Demigods

Hare Krishna Prabhu. I was told that people worship the demigods to gain fast materialistic results. What I wish to know is, can I ask them to grant me Krsna prem and grant me rememberance of Krsna?

Guru: Everyone is lying to you…

Hare KrsnaPrabhu

It is said in Gita that anyone serious to advance spiritually and get spiritual knowledge needs to approach a self-realised soul ,serve him ,ask him questions and take instructions from him.

Srila Prabhupada lives in his Vani,instructions.

Given the sad state of affairs you have mentioned in your article ,about finding a genuine bona-fide self-realised Guru who can and will be able to take their diciples Back to Krsna,isn’t it safer just to keep Srila Prabupada as the Guru.

Is is not more imprtant to be sincerely dedicated to Srila Prabhupada and be assured to reach Krsna by acting according to Srila Prabhupada’s incstructions,than to run the risk of being comletely misguided by any other Guru?

I know by Krsna’s grace and Guru Parampara’s grace and my own efforts,I can reach Krsna just by reading and implementing the Teachings in Srila Prabhupada’s book & discourses,by serving Krsna and his childrenthroughout my life.

I rather do this,than be misguided by anyone.

I am convinced without a shadow of a doubt that Dear Srila Prabhupada will safely deliver anyone who follows him with his heart and soul.

Personally i feel initiation and accepting another Guru may be dangerous,as you point out, not many Guru’s if at all are able to deliver lost souls.

I know I rather be safe than sorry and I am safe under Krsna,Guru Parampara to Srila Prabhupada. They hear our prayers and will deliver.

Everything is in Srila Prabhupada’s Books!

Hare Krsna

Thank you for highlighting this important point, of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books daily.
Thank you for collating some of his quotes on the matter and ofcourse for adding such useful websites.
By Krsna’s and Srila Prabhupada’s grace, I am blessed to read these books and apply them.
As regards, Maya, I find she provides us our “practicals”.
Ie we each have experiences which we can apply our KC principles to.

I pray Lord Krsna and our dear Guru Srila Prabhupada blessses each one of us to remain disciplined and determined in our efforts to read,apply and share the profound knowledge contained in these auspicious books.

Never give up! Pick yourselves up and carry on the KC process come what may.

Making the Best Use of a Bad Bargin

Hare Krsna MadhudvisaPrabhu

I think Gunjal was asking to help the disadvantaged AND AT SAME time in mood of Bhakti help them towards God – Krsna.

This surely is correct.

ie Offer practical help first to sustain the basic necessities of material life BUT AT SAME TIME in loving manner preach the most highest good – to reestablish the union with Krsna as the prime necessity of their lives.

Hare Krsna!

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa Dasa

Nice article ,thank you.

Just one observational point, a person may go through all catergories in his life:

“one who is distressed, one who wants money, one who is inquisitive and the one who is searching for knowledge of the absolute”.

Infact he most definately will fluctuate from one catergory to another in his life, but if he was genuinely interested in Spiritual advancement in the first place ,then his time will come when he will be considered to be in the best catergory – that of a seeker of knowledge of Absolute Truth and ofcourse will be one who practices the knowledge gained.

I make this point because the force of Maya and past life Karmic reactions will be acting on him.

Infact process of genuinely seeking knowledge & putting it into practice, propel one forwards to gain further knowledge and further refinement and perfection, loosening grip of Maya & reducing or nullifying Karmic reactions eventually.

It is a gradual process over many lifetimes to reach stage of the best category of devotee that turns to Krsna.

This is my understanding. Thank you once again for the article.
Hari Bol!

Human Life is not for working hard like animals

Hare Krsna Aryan KrishnaPrabhu,

Wonderfully put. I enjoyed your succinct summary
Points of the essentials with scriptural references.
May Lord Krsna keep you close to Him in His Eternal Service.

Reading your comment which I received in my email in box,
made me revise the essentials of ensuring I myself Go Back Home to Krsna.

Thank you.

Hare Krsna to All!
In reply to GUDDU’s predicament.

As a fellow devotee, I was inspired to just share from my understanding:

KEEP CHANTING NO MATTER WHAT. THE EFFECTS OF CHANTING WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE, DO NOT WORRY ABOUT HOW “good” or “bad” your chanting was or “how many disturbing thoughts are coming inbetween”, do not even give your unwanted thoughts any more attention, just do not analyse the process of chanting, just carry on chanting and make it a habit.

Just chant, and gradually the Chanting itself will take care of the unwanted thoughts.The Maha Mantra is powerful transcendental energy and it embodies the Sound form of God, Krsna.

Analogy: Doctor and patient
Surgeon – Krsna and his energy “the Maha Mantra”
patient – All of us, conditioned souls

A patient does not need to analyse and dissect the way a surgeon will perform the surgery. He has to place his faith in the Surgeon in order to get better, after all the patient cannot operate on himself!
After the operation is done, the patient will feel effects of operation, but he does not need to analyse and precisely know and consider himself each each and every movement and cut and stitch the Surgeon performed, the patient simply has to let the effects of the operation happen, in no time the patient is back on his feet, with a new lease of life! The surgeon has done his job.

In the same way, let the Maha Mantra do it’s transformative postive effects on you ( it can do but only good to you), and rest assured you do not have to analyse its effects, especially the painful unwanted disturbing thoughts, just know that the new lease of life is happening, one Maha Mantra at a time and it will all add up!

Chanting the Maha Mantra is a HUGE step in the most right direction in this age of Kali, as kindly ,lovingly ,diligently & painstakingly revealed in Shastra and by all the past Acharya’s ,AC BhaktiVedanta Swami Prabupada and all Vaisnava devotee’s for the benefit of the masses.

Hare Krsna AmitPrabhu!

Amusing comment by you, which made me LOL!
I personally feel integrity and true devotional service to Lord Krsna is real KK.
KK is not even about having any outside paraphernalia – such as temple, deities etc – although it helps.

At it’s basic , KK means being of devotional mindset and acting accordingly in life, everything is of Krsna and for Krsna. One can worship Krsna with the mind – this is the ultimate worship as mind is focussed on Krsna and absorbed in Krsna. When this happens, naturally one wants to act accordingly and hence the actions of deity worship,aarti,puja,offerring prasadam.

Outward worship of Krsna with paraphernalia reinforces the mind to be absorbed in Krsna and vice versa, absorbing one’s mind in Krsna reinforces and prmotes outward worship to Krsna.

This type of humanbeing, a pure devotee, will not be making other’s “work like a bull”, his own attributes will be improved, his intelligence and strength of character will be vastly improved in such a profound way ( by Krsna’s reciprocal Love & Grace towards him )that material success will be achieved smartly , efficiently and ethically but more importantly his life will be very spiritually inclined and he will be having attitude of service to his employee’s from a spiritual perspective and hence will be inspiration to them to follow in his footsteps and imbibe KK into their own lives.
He will do his duty ethically and with alot of integrity and higher values. KK means duty in spirit of service to Krsna.

Someone in KK will have sharper conscience and it will bite and they will act to rectify asap, their hearts will be compassionate and yet they will be very very capable.

I’d like to meet a KK CEO like one I described someday! I am sure there are a few. 🙂
Hari Bol!

PS Also as you say, if one cannot find a “soulmate” in the material world, then why have role models that tell us about such piety , loyalty of love between a loving couple? Why extol these types of stories when infact it is not attainable in this material world according to what you just wrote ,you said “mates are in the Spiritual World”)?

So my new question is, I read we have families in Vaikuntha – Spiritual world, so do we , living entities , have eternal soulmate/life-partner? ( like Lakshmi-Narayan)
Which mates are in the Spiritual world waiting for me, what do you mean exactly thanks.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa

Thank you for yet another wonderful email sent to me on this topic.
Q:If the point of Human life is to get out of cycle of Birth,Old age, Disease and Death, then why do children get taught to model themselves on any number of virtuous people from Vedic lore only to find that their efforts have not really qualified themselves for the same tests , of their role models, in life?
eg Sita, Ram
Shiva Parvati
Bheesma, Prahlad etc?

ie A woman trying to be virtuous like Mother Sita or a man trying to be virtuous like Lord Ram, only to find that they have not met their soulmate or cannot be with their soulmate,thus be prone to face unecessary and uncalled for disappointments.
It would be better if nothing else is taught BUT to do devotional service and chant Hare Krsna Maha Mantra, as only these are the tools necessary for everything worthwhile – including spontaneously manifesting virtues of a devotee, then there is no disappointment.

Bear in mind the role models of Vedic lore, always had spiritual enlightened consciousness and their whole lives were based on spiritual advancement – Higher Life and acting accordingly.

I hope my question makes sense? 🙂
Do please enlighten me with your wisdom on what I have said, thank you.

The Spiritual World — And how to get there

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa

The reply you have given to (pranaytony says:

April 11, 2012 at 3:25 pm) who poses you questions about marriage , is good,
but in your reply,there was no mention of choosing a lifepartner by cultivating and implementing the higher values of love, respect ,committment and loyalty “till death do us apart”.

Such values and core principles are learnt from Vedic scriptures themselves, and as we humanbeings are not like cats and dogs , we should not choose alliance for want of sex ie not choose marriage alliance as
some sort of sanction to permit us to indulge in sex.

Marriage is between two people who value each other love each other and serve
Krsna together,thus practically helping each other and offspring and immediate families and yes, wider community to realise their true identity and thus come closer to Krsna and serve Him, with full intentions of exiting cycle of birth and death and entering Goloka-Vrndavan in His service.

There are by Krsna’s grace many “nice devotee girl’s” and “nice devotee boy’s” and one needs to understand that choosing to marry has to be based on higher values I mentioned above.

Devotee’s should study saintly couple’s from Vedic Scripture’s, they had higher values which the expressed even on choosing marriage partner and during their married lives.

Krsna Bless All. Haribol!

Hare Krsna Prabhu.
Thank you for your reply.Yes I have heard of the stories you quoted in your reply.

The liberated souls that reach Brahmajyoti, do they have subtle body of
sat-chit-ananda and hence retain their individuality? ( I think they do retain individuality because Krsna says in BG that we are living entities that always existed and will continue to do so and are parts and parcels of him)
If so,what exactly are they doing in the Brahmajyoti please?

I ask this because the devotee’s that attain the spiritual sky are serving the Lord and live on the Spiritual Planets which are floating in the Brahmajyoti spiritual sky.
Brahmajyoti is emantaing from Lord and lighting up the spiritual sky and all the planets in the spiritual sky ( there is no sun or moon ), top most of which is Goloka-Vrindavan, where the Lord eternally resides.

I understand that Mayavadi philosophy says we merge in with the Supreme and become one with God, but I think being liberated and reaching Brahmajyoti means you merge in with the Brahmajyoti but you are not one with God, meaning you still retain individuality.

So I am trying to imagine what the liberated souls in the Brahmajyoti are doing as it seems they retain their individuality. Thank you.

Hari Bol!

Hare Krsna Thom!

I Thank you for sharing your understanding with us.
I read your comments with interest and I glanced upon your comment out of all the comments on here, as if I was guided to read your words.
I totally understand how you felt and now feel.

I am currently trying to surrender fully to Lord’s will and I have much to learn from your own words too.

You are not preaching and so you do not need to apologise for your sharing, it’s by being open-hearted and sharing and discussing about Krsna and our individual understandings , we can progress further and also unknowingly help others too.
It’s all in Krsna’s Plan. 🙂
Thank you and May Lord Krsna Bless You Always.

Hare Krsna!

Beautiful article which I was sent today (25th August 2011 12:26am GMT) , a warm Thank you to you prabhu.

Just question popped into my head:
If someone was thinking of KRSNA but in anger or negative mode at time of death, what becomes of them?

Do they still reach Spiritual Sky?
Thank you.

Hari Bol!

    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!
