ISKCON: From the Absolute Truth to Insanity…

mike from the Absolute Truth to Insanity

So I got this very long email of which many things I do not understand. What I heard was allot of dissatisfaction and probably allot of truth. Where is the solution in this writing of yours? Where do I go from here. There is only ISKCON near me with no other options. I appreciate the clarity and passion u bring now maybe u could supplement it with some choices and direction for the fledgling devotee’s such as me?

Solar Eclipses are not Caused by the Moon

The moon’s reflection doesn’t light up the night. It’s still dark. If viewing the Earth from the moon during a new moon it would be bright and there would be reflected light from Earth on the moon, but to then see that light again reflected from the moon back again to Earth, you’re expecting it to be illuminated??

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

Hello, my name is Michael Overzat and I am a faithful devotee of Swami Prabhupada… My wife is suffering from irritible bowel syndrome and she is also pregnant… She says that eating eggs makes her feel better. In a sense, I believe her since she has a disease… What do you all think?

The “Acharyadeva” has no Bhakti… ISKCON’s False “Acharyadevas”

Hari Bol.
I have a question. Would someone pleasae be so kind as to answer it for me. I accept that Srila Prabhupada can become my life and soal if only I take shelter of him and his instructions. But his divine grace has left the plannet and I am no longer in a position to take DIRECT shelter of him besides his books and instructions. If for example a pure devotee becomes apparant in a vaisnava matha outside iskcon is it right and proper to immediately take initiation of that person if his mood is in line with srila prabhupadas.There is a lot of scaremongering going on that one cannot leave iskcon and I find this cultish and sectarian like many christian churches. I wonder why devotees think like this because joining iskcon generally meant in the first place that the person would have initially moved from his religious tradition to a new one.So why not change again if need be to another krishna consciousness movement outside of this iskcon. My experience with this iskcon movement makes me believe that so many devotees are more intrested in politics than serving krishna and they argue, fight, debate and shout people down constantly. They themselves not being happy and content and ultimately not fully satisfied with what they have. I would draw a conclusion that they are lacking something which a only a pure devotee manifesting again would put right.But I bet if one became manifest they wold be the first to decry and critisise that person too.Before I get as far away from this iskcon as i can can somebody clarify wether I am correct to look for another vaisnava institution which is more compassionate and loving.I hear there are many others which have nicer moods and are attracting western devotees. With thanks. Mike

Some of ISKCON’s Blind Spots

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
He most definatley surrendered to bhaktivedanta his every possession and all of the disciples he already acquired before finding bhaktivedanta’s pure teachings and once initiated and eventually moved on to spread krishna, he always sent all his disciples to be initiated by bhaktivedanta up to the point that bhaktivedanta left his body. Its well documented. They encourage the reading of bhaktivedanta’s original books and I have to disagree with you labeling siddhaswarupananda paramahansa as bogus but, if you follow bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada only you’re undoubtedly on a path to perfection.
Haribol 🙂

USA: Getting God out of the Schools.

cute poem. She failed to mention that christianity is not the only religion in the USA. If she wants prayer in school, then include all religions not just hers.

Did man really walk on the Moon ???

Do you people ever leave the house or do you live in your mother’s basement? HAHAH this discussion is a big joke…. Lets change the topic….

I think that your belief system is a big hoax. There is no god or energy in our bodies, I’m not even sure Asia exists. I’ve never been there and all i have seen are pictures that are all hoaxed. There is no Asia so there must be no “Maha Mantra”. This is a hoax too since no one could have wrote it. Why don’t you wake up and stop letting the government trick you into thinking that Asia really exists.

    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!

      Madhudvisa dasa
