Meditational Yoga — The Prerequisites

Hare Krishna,
Thank you for your letters. I recently travelled to India hoping to see a swami I met long ago in USA. When I arrived at the temple he was in Vrindaven so our paths did not cross. Then I saw that he would be here in USA, so I made plans to go across the country to see him and now find out he will not be there, so once again our paths will not cross. The reason I am writing you about this is because my heart is so heavy. It feels like the pain of separation from a parent. Please tell me is this pain Im feeling separation from Krishna? am I too attached to this swami?
is there an obvious reason this keeps happening? is it just life or I am not meant to cross paths with this person again

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

Hare Krishna!
I am always so happy to receive your writings. I have been cooking for my husband every day (since november) as you suggest. It has been a difficult transition, because he has always been “in charge” of the kitchen, but he has reluctantly accepted this change.
Funny story… yesterday he wanted to have a big old fashioned breakfast, so he cooked up pancakes, potatoes and bacon! I was disappointed, but I just kept quiet. So now he sits down to eat his breakfast and I look at the stove and see the bacon still sitting there. So I ask him if he is ashamed to eat in front of me, and he starts laughing because he actually forgot to eat his bacon! We were laughing so hard because it was such a whole thing to cook this, and he was so looking forward, and then he forgot! Do you think his consciousness is changing or is it possible krishna played a trick on him…

Hare Krishna!
I read each word of your writing about Krishna Prasad. I worry about this everyday because
my husband is a non-veg chef and so I would have to cook every meal for us to eat prasad every time is this correct? Or can he cook and as long as it is how Krishna likes, ( no meat eggs fish mushroom, onion garlic…) then is can be offered. How bad is it to cook with onion garlic and mushrooms? should this food be offered?

Making the Best Use of a Bad Bargin

Hare krishna. When you say one should serve the deities and pray to the deities, does you mean to pray knowing that the deity is really Krsna or praying and serving the deities as symbols of Krsna. If the deities are really Krsna then is Ksna really the picture I have? I have heard that Krsna is non different from the books, images and deities, but can you further explain what that means?

Hare Krishna Sara!
I am reading the book KRSNA written by Swami Prabhupada.
Is this a good book to start? It was given to my husband and I as a wedding gift.
It has been years. I could never read it before, but now I cant put it down.
I am so happy.

Why does God care
if we chant 16 rounds everyday. Is this chanting for our benefit or for Krisha?

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare…

Hare Krishna,
when I chant my rounds, is it okay if I say in my head as I touch each bead,
or do i have to say out loud for it to count? I say to my self because my throat gets sore
from so many rounds.

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa,
I understand about pure devotees leading kirtan, but here are no devotees leading any kirtans anywhere around here. So now what?

Hare Krishna!
Thank you for telling me about the mantras. I will do the Srila Prabhupada Pranati the Panca-tattva Maha-mantra and the Hare Krsna Maha-mantra everyday.
I am learning so much from your writings. I am very much looking forward to your next writing.

I am a harmonium player and attend regular kirtan that is not facilitated by devotees. I have been asked to lead a kirtan for the group. it okay to lead the Maha Mantra at Kirtan, even though I am not a pure devotee?

If Prabhupada is my guru, how can that be if I never met him?

» Posted By Lissa On January 3, 2012 @ 3:28 am

Hare Krishna,
Thank you for this information about chanting hare krishna.
So if we should only chant hare krishna, does this mean not even any mantras at kirtan LIKE the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra GAYATRI MANTRA? Does this mean also not to do the Hanuman Chalisa either? OR ARE THESE okay?

Hare Krishna. I do not have a spiritual master. Should I chant hare krishna anyway, and will that be like surrendering to krishna even with out a guru?

    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!
