A Regulated Life is Very Important

Haribol, Prabhu!
Thank you so much for your service and patience. I have a question. Ever since I have taken up chanting, offering bhoga, and association with Devotees, I find that I am less interested in the topics my older friends like (i.e. Sex, gossip, etc.). I have so much history with these people, and they are dear to me. I am afraid to ask but I must; is it best to limit my association with them so that I may grow in Bhakti? Or should I try to tell them more about Krishna Consciousness (with Prabhupada’s books)?

I say that I am afraid to ask because I don’t feel like I am any better of a person than they are. Although my tastes have changed, I am still a know-nothing rascal. I feel that I am no Devotee, just a wannabe. I, however, do know that to move forward in Bhakti and to attain love for God I must have sadhu-sanga. I hope this makes sense to you and you understand what I am asking. I am really hoping you can give me a little clarity, Prabhu.

The little-known secret to Advancement in Krishna Consciousness

I have gotten conflicting answers from Devotees in regards to whether we are actually associating with or following a pure Devotee if the only association we have is through their written words. I have a lot of Prabhupada’s books, as well as BV Narayana Maharaj’s books, and have been feeling as though it doesn’t matter if I remotely try to follow or even absorb what I’ve been reading because I’ve been told that it is not the same as “real” association and will not make much of a difference. Is there really no spiritual merit? Maybe “merit” isn’t the right word. I guess what I mean is this: After the pure Devotee has left this world, what does an aspiring Devotee do? How far into Spiritual life is it possible for them to delve into?

I’ve been feeling a little hopeless after hearing this. I continue to chant a little everyday, and continue to follow the regulative principles, but I’m afraid that I can’t really serve Krishna if I don’t have a pure Devotee instructing me, and I feel lost.

Jai Sri Sri Radha-Krsna!

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I have been interested in spiritual life for quite some time. The more I learn about this path, the more it makes sense and really resonates with me. I will continue to read and learn and inquire. Again, thank you so much. Hare Krishna!

Hello again, Hare Krishna!
I had forgotten to ask the other question I had, and am grateful for any answer I receive. I understand many of the aspects of Krishna, of our true nature, etc. I’ve yet to read why we are here. To put it clearer, I understand human life is for purification and getting back to God, but I don’t understand why we’ve come into a material world that we must fight to get out of. Why were we placed here in Maya? This is the one question I keep meaning to ask, but forget until I’m alone! haha I would be very grateful if you could explain. Haribol!!!

Hare Krishna!
I have so enjoyed learning from this website. I have been associating with a small group of Devotees in my city, and learning bit by bit. I have a question regarding the Gurudev.
I am wondering whether or not it was acceptable to accept a Gurdev who has already passed, or if it is required to surrender to a Gurdev who is still living. I cannot imagine any situation where I would actually be blessed enough to be in the presence of a Gurdev here (I live in a state that isn’t heavily populated with this sort of spirituality) and would like to know if there is only one way to accept a Gurdev. Thank you thank you thank you for any response you give. Haribol!

    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!
