Whatever Happened to the Hare Krishnas? TV Show 2013

Hare Krishna,
I loved this video. I am a 51-yr old soul with a 10-yr old wonderful daughter, we have been blessed to relocate to California and start a new life. Five months ago I was introduced to Krishna consciousness and have had such an overwhelming desire read everything Srila Prabhupada has written. The Christian material I have been reading has left so many of my deep questions unanswered that the Bhagavad-Gita has answered for me. This video portrays a life I want to have with my daughter. A life that has a balance of both worlds, the first being a dedicated loving devotee of Lord Krishna but at the same time living amongst non-devotees sharing our love and knowledge of Lord Krishna. Yet I have never even ever met one devotee of the Lord personally. I have been following the 4 principles and have been chanting 16 rounds of japa beads and have taught my daughter the Hare Krishna mantra as well. We are now living in Lemoore California and wondered where we could go to be associated with other devotees? Also is there anywhere I can go to learn all about the Vedic literature amongst devotees who can help me become free?
Humbly requesting help,

Help! I told the ISKCON Temple President about Prabhupada!!

I would dearly love to learn deeper and practice and serve with you, Madhudvisa dasa. I was raised in a Christian (well pseudo) environment and early on noticed the hypocrisy of the whole thing. I do cherish ONLY the words of Christ..but the only writings that make sense to me are the Bhagavad Vita… my research and quest for truth led me there. I have children and grandchildren. We would love to become a part of your culture and service.

Mantra Wars and Mantra Weapons

Hi! Yesterday, during a concert of the band “Goodbye to Gravity” was launching its album named “Mantras of War”. During their song named “The day we die”, a fire started that led to 27 dead and 180 wounded, so far. Would you say there was a link between these mantras and the tragic accident? Could you chant evil spirits that might bring death in such a way?

Women In Society–A Television Interview With Srila Prabhupada

That was an interesting read. The reporter was apparently American? I am female. I do believe all people should be treated with the same dignity, and paid the same for the same job according to their experience. I have never been a Women’s Liber… but I see people all the same (men and women), spiritually. Physically, we are very different. Not just men and women but as individuals. Since the dawn of womens lib…men have become different. I believe one should not be subordinate to the other – except for instances where one is more experienced or more “fit” for the situation. I have seen men who were brilliant raising kids and working; and women, who were terrible. I have seen Women working supporting families and raising kids (this situation is a problem – I have been in it)… I see a need for two (whether same sex or not) people raising children. Lastly, I have seen Women go to work, Men stay home and all was well. Personally, I would rather my mate chop wood than myself (but I have had to do it); and my mate wants nothing to do with the kitchen… (but he has had to do it)… So we should compliment and supplement each other and recognize when to be subordinate. Historically, in America the men became chauvinistic and brutal to the women – thus, Women’s Rights arose! But as all thing American – it has gone a bit far….

love and peace be with you

“I am not this Body.” Easy to say…

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa dasa,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada,
I am very new to Krishna consciousness although I’ve been a devoted Christian for years. I’ve only recently(since April) heard of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is and have read through it twice and am on my 3rd reading and am absolutely in love with it. This particular subject I have spent many hours contemplating. I am understanding from reading BG 6.34 that the mind and intelligence are two separate entities. The mind being controlled by the senses and intelligence being mercifully given by Lord Krishna. My question is how is it that we can determine which thoughts and ideas are directed at us by Lord Krishna (spiritual platform) and which thoughts and ideas are by our own conditioned minds (material platform)? I have noticed also when chanting my 16 rounds, I can chant but I notice my mind flickering and unsteady, how do you control that?
Humbly seeking answers,

    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
