Hare Krishna prabhu ji,
I’m confused about something. You wrote that it is only lust that causes us to think we’re loving another person. But, there are other kinds of relationships that are not based on lust. A mother for a child is one very strong example of love that transcends the bodily concept. I understand that this can be seen as a selfish love because the child ‘belongs’ to the mother, but isn’t it genuine love nonetheless? There are so many instances that we know of where a mother, in various species, gives her life for her child. If our love here is but a reflection of our love for Krishna in the spiritual world, isn’t it a valid love when it’s felt by the individual as real, only on a smaller scale? Just as we’re of the same qualitative nature as Krishna but on a much smaller scale, isn’t our potential for loving each other in the material world also of the same nature as Krishna’s love, only limited due to our temporary experiences with other living entities?

Dear Madhudvisa Prabhu,
Many thanks for your very loving and clear cut teachings. I just read the blog on Mayavadis, and would like to comment that the proof is in the pudding….
I do not know many happy Mayavadis, but I do know many happy Bhaktas!! I have been a Bhakti all of my life, and even though through studying all different forms of yoga, being pounded with Mayavadi philosophy, I just never bought into it! I’ve observed that as the Love of Krishna permeates one’s life, nothing can compare, people observe it, and are naturally attracted to the Rasa. Much love and many thanks to you for your work. Hari Bol, Melinda

Very beautifully done! I for one am glad it’s not a typical professional film. It’s much better than that!

I agree with you, Mark. Each dog is as much an individual as each human is, or any other being for that matter. I find dogs in general to be far more loving and loyal than the average human. I think about God when I am with my dog. It’s not that because I love my dog I replace God with her, any more than I would replace God with another human. If we love God then we love all of God’s children. And that means we should look after them, especially the beings who God has brought into our lives in a more personal way.

Dear Madhudvisa dasa,
How does this apply to animals? I was told by a gifted psychic that I have the spirit of a dog with me. I assume this would be one of my previous dogs who has passed. It feels good, not at all demonic or harmful in any way. Also, I’ve seen videos showing ghostly dogs still wanting to be with their human family. Is there a difference in the case of animals?
