Are the Hare Krishnas a Cult?

Madhudvisa and Sean,,
One can have a direct relationship with God. A church is really the people, so, since people are humans, there will be unfortunately be imperfections and sin.
I follow Jesus, the only perfect human who ever lived. Even if people in whatever church I am part of sin (and yes, they should be held accountable for their sins), my personal relationship with God and Jesus, His son, remains the same. Pray unceasingly.

By the way, Srila Prabhubata was also human.

Praise God!

Dearest Rahda, I pray that your anger subsides and that you learn not to judge. Blessings, Mary

Susie Jane, Yes, I saw that with a friend of mine who was a Jehovah witness and he had to hide his time with me (a Christian) or he would have been excommunicated and shunned by his church. I see that as WRONG! The same for any church who exercises this kind of control. Mary

Susie Jane, See how it is “inside”? Very sad.

Susie Jane, Sorry I just noticed your reply. My son is 21 now and has been involved in Hare Krishna for a couple of years. He was introduced in his first year of college, where he was into (worse things) drugs, illicit sex (he tells me), etc. I also have been reading the Bagavad Gita. He has traveled all over the U.S. and one to India (where he was very sick – from food or something). There is a little contact as I pay for his cell phone access, last visit was in May this year. If he were a Catholic Monk, I would be fine with it, knowing where he was and being able to visit, etc. It bothers me that he may be encouraging another young person to pain their family as we have been in pain. I want him to find God, but am very uncomfortable with Krshna and this method for searching. I understand that children leave, but there is a difference in leaving and what this religion is.

Louis Byron, Please speak only for yourself, not all of us westerners. Not all westerners have forsaken spirituality or done many of the other things you mention, so please do not lump us all together. While we may be human, and consequently, sinners, many are doing the best we can and doing much daily spiritually. Jesus Christ died for everyone’s sins, so while we are not perfect, you may only speak for yourself. Mary

Danny, When a religion takes a person completely away from their family, that is either brainwashing or just plain wrong! In the Bible, one of the commandments says to honor your Father and Mother, which separating from is not honoring when they are just following God on another path. A Krshna follower on here indicates that he/she is also separated from parents and that is JUST PLAIN WRONG.

Bhakta Rajesh,

Thank you for your reply.
I have visited the local temple a few times and am reading the Bhagavid Gita. Apparently, you and I disagree on “service”. My Bible tells me that each individual is responsible for their own beliefs, not to be liberated by someone else. Jesus died for everyone’s sins. Through him, I am saved.
I remain a steadfast disciple of Jesus Christ and I do not require Krishna consciousness, as I will go to Heaven, because I believe in and worship God and Jesus Christ.
Blessings, Mary Fletcher

Well, we hear from our Hare Krishna monk son, but it’s usually brief, no visits, and generally preaching about how Americans are selfish and Christians don’t worship God enough (only 1 time per week). I believe this is brainwashing.

Now, my son the Hare Krishna monk is gone to India and we will not see him on his 21st birthday tomorrow, probably not even hear from him. It’s so sad for a child to be conditioned to completely disconnect from his family. He indicates that we will hear from him, but we have not and he left a month ago. Of course, other parents have that same difficulty for different reasons, but I do wonder.

Well, It’s very difficult for parents who miss their now Hare Krishna monk who travels around and is mostly out of touch with his family, giving up everything for the temple. And, if we do see him, we cannot eat together easily, as he is critical of anything we eat. It hurts. Somehow, I wouldn’t think (my) God would want a family to be so disjointed, just because I am a Christian (protestant) and our son is a Hare Krishna Monk.

Man On The Moon–A Colossal Hoax that Cost Billions of Dollars

No one here has been willing to share the Specific Veda scriptures saying tat (years later) there would be a hoax about the moon. I have a Bagavad Gita, so tell us verse that you see this. Or I will ask my Hare Krishna monk son, if he knows.

» Posted By Mary Fletcher On December 26, 2011 @ 4:22 pm

And that proves what?

» Posted By Mary Fletcher On December 24, 2010 @ 6:16 pm

Please tell verse in Vedic scriptures.

» Posted By Mary Fletcher On December 24, 2010 @ 6:11 pm

Stupidity to a whole new level – I agree! The real scriptures (in the Bible) don’t mention a moon landing being a hoax. I would question how the Vedic scriptures (written before the Bible, even) would know about something to happen in the future being a hoax. You all make me laugh (in your consciousness malarky)

Why would Hare Krishna’s be “de-educating” their people except to make them all not trust the rest of the world – to make Americans look stupid, like idiots! Unbelievable! I pray that God will set this straight, so you will come back to reality and release others.

    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!
