How to offer food to Krishna?

this is really a very heavy mail to digest….. what all is written is true … atleast in my case. I just want to enquire whether sweets brought from market should not be offered? and u told that we should cook for krishna…. but how can we know what should be cooked daily… normally we cook as per our requirement … offer it to krishna….and then accept it as prasadam….

Krishna Responds to Everyone According to their Desires

I had another question,

1) what is the significance of chanting 16 rounds why not 15 or 17 or any other number.

2) Also why is the Tulsi mala worn on the throat? what do 3 lines signify, is is worn only after initiation or anyone can wear it?

3) In my altar, On Top Shelf, I have framed photo or Radha-Giridhari, Damodharji, small Ladoo Gopal made of silver (at higher level), Gaura-Nitai at middle level and Prabhupadaji at lower level. On Second shelf I have framed photo of all Durga maa, Lord Shiva. So is that the right setting for the altar?? I do the offerting while reciting the four verses and then do mangal aarti. Similarly in the evening I do the offering while reciting the four verses followed by Gaura Aarti. so would this Bhoga go to Krishna? Am I doing Okay. please make suggestions.

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

Hare Krishna Prabhuji,

Please give me some more information regarding installation of deities. If I am into Krishna consiousness and the other family members are not, can I have the deities installed in the house. ( I am sharing the house with my family members). So I can make temple in a corner or a room in the house and take care of the cleanliness and making prasadam. Also can I start doing mangal aarti even if I don’t have deities presently, but I have a photo of Shri Shri Radhi Girdhari in the small temple I made at home? What are the other things that one has to do once deities are installed which I can start doing now so as to get more involved in the process and start practising? For example some prayers in the morning and in the evening etc.

Also would like to know if it is okay to do more than 16 rounds on one day on my day off and may be do less on a busy day when I am working or have a long day. Because sometimes on day off I feel like doing more.

Hare Krishna.

Hare Krishna Prabhuji,

Is the process of offering food to Gaura Nitai is followed so as to have only Prasadam. Would that save us from reaction of Karmic actions? Can we get Radha Krishan Deities also after installing Gaura-Nitai? when do we know that we are now fixed up to serve Krishna and can get the deities. For example we are chanting 16 rounds and following 4 principles, so are we ready? Are we allowed to visit the sikh temple (Gurudwara) even if we are into Krishna Consciousness?

Hare Krishna

Hare Krishna Prabhuji,

I take the oppurtunity to ask another question. What is the difference between being initiated and not being initiated?If a person if following four principles,chanting 16 rounds,offering food to Krishna, then what extra an initiated person is doing? Actually what is the process of being initiated, is it some kind of pooja one has to go through,does it happen in a group like some people getting initiated together by a Guruji?
As Krishna says in Bhagwat Gita that we should follow a disciplic succession, but you mentioned in one of the emails that we should not worship guru,which seems to be a bit contadictory?

Hare Krishna Prabhuji,

I wanted to ask if there is some purification process that we have to go through before actually installing deities at home and start offerting food to God.
What is the whole process? Does a devotee needs to do something (for example coming to our house, purifying house and install deities) to get us started?
Do we have to change all the utensils of the kitchen and buy new ones before we start making prasadam because we have cooked meat, but stopped eating after coming to Krishna Consciousness.

The Spiritual World — And how to get there

As it is mentioned in bg 15.6 that if one reaches the spiritual sky never comes back in this material world. But it is also true that we have come in this world from the spiritual sky.

    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
