Original 17 Volume Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Back in Print!

Thank you very much Prabhu! Gradually I am understanding a few verses of Bhagavad Gita which I couldn’t understand earlier…

I am especially referring to the verse :
Prakrteh kriyamanani gunaih karmani sarvasah ahankara vimudhatma kartaham iti manyate

I now understand that all results that we get, is a result of our past and thus we shouldn’t wrongly think that we are the doer. My understanding became stronger when I read Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita again and again…

Yet, I had this doubt…kindly clear it Prabhu. With reference to my academics, I was very very good at it and would shine. However in a main exam I committed very silly mistakes and everything went wrong and my dream of years together shattered…

… Somehow I can’t convince myself that this was ordained since my mistakes were very silly….Yet as per this verse am I right to understand that it was ordained?

Sorry for troubling Prabhu…I promise I shall not ask further questions on this… Again,sorry Prabhu.

I do my 16 rounds, 1 hour of reading of Srila Prabhupada’s books daily and follow 4 regulative principles. Initially I was proud that I had accomplished this great feat.

But only to end up in distress. Now I feel there is still something missing? I don’t understand whether the problem is that I am not chanting and reading with full attention or whether the problem is that I am not following the other instructions of fully dedicating my 24 hours? Kindly help. I am finding it very difficult to continue with my daily regulative principles without getting any encouragement.

2) Prabhu, and one more thing, I have scored very badly in my exams in spite of my full efforts. It does not matter in the long run right? These marks are always distressing and somehow or other affect me very badly sometimes that I find it very difficult to even do my daily rounds…I am glad becoming Krishna conscious does not require us to become PhD.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krishna Aman prabhu,
I remember the very first time I came in contact with Krishna consciousness movement, it was Srila Prabhupada’s books that mesmerized me… So much so that I couldn’t give it up to this day. And gradually I was so amazed with Srila Prabhupada’s teachings that I wished to sincerely follow his instructions. It takes great effort to understand how fortunate we are to have come in contact with Srila Prabhupada. I had seem many “gurus” before but never had anyone mesmerized me so much. Now in India, one by one they are all getting caught on rape charges and that serves them right!

I remember the very first time I heard about the rule that we should chant 16 rounds a day, I became so enthusiastic. There was no one to encourage me but Srila Prabhupada himself. So the first day I heard about this rule I did 4 rounds, the next day 9 rounds and on the 3rd day 16 rounds and that was the end of it. From that day there has not been a single day when I did not do my 16 rounds. And what keeps me going? It is Srila Prabhupada through his books!

So just give it a try. I challenge you to do it (coming to 16 rounds) in two days, else I win!

May you be successful in this attempt! My best wishes. Please give a go at it without any reservations…

P.S. Please read Srila Prabhupada’s books daily for at least 1 hour; that is the only thing that can keep you going in Krishna consciousness.

Hare Krishna!

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

Yes Prabhu, in the long run, I understand that following Srila Prabhupada’s instructions by bits and pieces is definitely not enough. Of course, I to have a very intense desire to dedicate my 24 hours to Krishna consciousness. But I am really not able to do so at the present moment. So now all I am able to do is chant 16 rounds, read 1 hour and follow 4 regulative principles. And i shall give no excuse for this. But there is no doubt that as soon as I get the opportunity I shall engage in Krishna consciousness 24 hours a day….

You will see the power of Hare Krishna movement in due course of time…

Prabhu, not wanting to waste your time, it is my humble request to you to please help me.

I have been reading Srila Prabhupada’s books for quite a few years now as per the rule (1 hour daily) and chanting 16 rounds daily and following the 4 regulative principles. It was going on nicely and I was very happy.

All of sudden I got the habit of not reading srila Prabhupada’s books although I am still chanting 16 rounds daily and following the 4 regulative principles. And somehow it has become such a strong habit that I am not able to overcome it. I am not feeling as happy now as I was then and I know that it is not due to reading the books for 1 hour daily. Even if i read , it is only for 20 minutes or so.

The main thing is I am not getting the mood or rather , the encouragement to read them. Prabhu, could you please encourage me to read the books for 1 hour daily…I have always taken your words seriously…

Due to unavoidable circumstances I am not able to distribute books now and along with that somehow I have come to even not reading his books. There is no question of stopping my spiritual life, but things are just not going in the right way. I am totally confused.

I am not understanding what to do. Prabhu, please somehow encourage me to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. It is a humble request…

Your humble servant.

    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!
