Worshiping the Demigods

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

Please explain why Caitanya Mahaprabhu visited temples of some demigods while He went to a tour to South India, although demigod worship isn’t recommended?

Hare Krishna Prabhu.
I have heard that people don’t go to the temple for a certain period of time, if someone dies in their family. This information is also given in the “Nectar of devotion” book.
Prabhu, my question is, should we also stop worshipping Krishna in our ‘homes’ during this period?

In many temples of Lord Vishnu there are also many demigods. My question is, why do people have demigods even in Lord Vishnu’s temple and worship them?

How to offer food to Krishna?

Hare Krishna Prabhu!
Under what circumstances did Srila Prabhupada accept 7up?
7up is definitely a drink prepared by non-devotees. To make things worse, it is also artificially carbonated. Then why did Prabhupada accept it? This question has been hovering in my mind for a few months. Please reply the earliest, and I mean no offense, Prabhu.

Suppose if a friend of me is giving me some food (which is not Prasadam), I don’t take it. And, people are criticizing me for this. Am I doing anything wrong, Prabhu? They say that they are being “kind” to me (well if they are kind, they shouldn’t insist me to eat their food, right?)

Hare Krishna, Prabhu!
When we offer food to a Self-realized person, who is a pure devotee of Krsna (like Srila Prabhupada), does the food become Prasadam?
Suppose if we meet such a pure devotee in person (which is VERY RARE), and offer food does it become Prasadam?
Sorry, if I misunderstood something.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna!
I’ve seen many devotees jump and dance while doing kirtan.
My question is how can one jump and at the same time chant?
Because while jumping, there is panting and it would be very difficult to chant while jumping.

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Can we also chant mantras like “Om Namo Narayanaya”,other than the Hare krishna maha mantra? I am only asking about the mantras for Lord Vishnu(or Lord Krishna).

Prasadam — What is it and why we should not eat anything else.

I eat only vegetarian foods. But Prabhu, I have a doubt.
Recently, I came to know that some medicines have a lot of extracts from slaughtered animals. It is also a fact that they use fat from slaughtered animals(especially pigs, cows, etc.) to make certain gelatin capsules of medicines. Of course, whenever I get a cold or fever, I avoid artificial medicines, and instead I consume ayurvedic medicines (like neem, turmeric,etc.), and after that the cold gets automatically cured.
But, in the future, if we have a serious disease and if the doctors insist that we have to take medicines with animal fats in them, what should we do? It is indeed a difficult time in Kali Yuga.

Hare Krishna!
I always eat Prasadam when I am in home.
There’s also no usage of Garlics and Onions in the food we prepare at home.
But when I am travelling, and when there’s no other alternative, unfortunately I have to
go to some hotel to eat. In India there are a lot of vegetarian hotels, but the thing is, obviously they don’t offer it to God, and secondly they use Onions and Garlics.
So how would one eat if he/she is travelling, Prabhu?(I mean to say, in a situation where Prasadam isn’t available)

Srila Prabhupada’s Beautiful Transcendental Qualities

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

When someone unnecessarily criticizes (or derides) Srila Prabhupada, what should we do? Should we make an attempt to prove that he is great, or just ignore them and walk away? In the internet there are some sites who deride Srila Prabhupada, and I try to avoid those sites as much as I could.

Chanting Hare Krishna on Japa Beads

Hare Krishna Prabhu!

Thanks for your reply, Prabhu. I will do as you suggested. I didn’t buy a new set so far. So I will chant in the same set of beads, and when problem occurs in the future, I will restring them.

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

Perhaps you were busy earlier. I already asked this question, but you didn’t reply. So my doubt is when we change the Japa beads from old set to new set, what can we do with the old set of beads? I am asking this because, the present set of beads which I am using has loosened threads and it looks like it will get torn soon.

So if we we buy a new set of japa beads, what should we do with the old one?

Hare Krishna Prabhu!
I am a school student. So, right now, I am able to chant only 3 rounds daily, as I have a lot of work. But I am definitely planning to chant 16 rounds when I grow up.
Is this Ok?

    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!
