Solar Eclipses are not Caused by the Moon

Hi,
But that is just what I was saying except in different words. Ambient light = light from corona + other reflected light from atmosphere, etc. It’s really not that complicated. You are being deceived by your senses — our eyes won’t pick up something as dark as the moon when the ambient light is that strong — as an experiment, just hold a tennis ball in front of a flashlight and see if you can make out the tennis ball’s features… BTW, I am a scientist by trade, albeit not an astronomer.

Regards,

The ambient light from the sun clearly overpowers any reflection you would see from the moon with the naked eye. Not to mention the fact that there would be very little direct radiation from the Earth back to the moon in completely obscured areas due to curvature of the Earth outside the Moon’s shadow. What strange false logic you have used.

Regards,
Noah

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Krishna’s complexion is described as being like that of a newly formed storm cloud. Could there be anything more majestic and beautiful?

Madhudvisa dasa,

Thank you for your expert response to my question. Your logic and understanding is truly sound. There are many that serve His Divine Grace and accept Him as their Spiritual Master, even though they may have never personally met Him or taken any kind of formal initiation. I also believe you are correct, His spiritual potency DOES live on through His books and is not diminished, in any way, by His having departed this world. I have been confused for so long by so many different things I have read about this dilemma concerning finding a bona fide Guru. Now, you have completely dispelled my confusion and my path seems clear. I cannot describe in words how good it is to know that a fallen soul, like me, can accept Srila Prabhupada as my guide and Spiritual Master. There could not be ANYONE in this world that could be more qualified to guide the fallen as He. I only hope that my feeble service will be acceptable to Him. Without any doubt, even today, His Divine Grace still lives on, through His books, lectures, recordings and other teachings. His tireless work is truly a priceless benefit to all mankind.

Therefore, I now pledge all that I have and all that I am, mind, body and soul and surrender fully at the lotus feet of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivendanta Swami Prabhupada.

With unalloyed submission, Master, I accept Your Divine Grace as my beloved Guru, now and forever. May Sri Radha-Krsna give me the strength to uphold my solemn pledge to constantly render devotional service to You with avery action I take; to daily chant 16 rounds (or more) of the Holy Mahamantra, to diligently study Your excellent books and submissively accept Your transcendental teachings without any arrogance. Guruji, may I always remember You constantly and strictly follow the four regulative principals, all the days of my life, without fail.

Master, since I am presently in such a lowly and fallen condition, Please take mercy on me and help me abide in You correctly. I pray that my humble service will be acceptable in Your sight. In return for my devotion, I ask for nothing, except that you might continue to instruct me so my dormant love for Krsna will someday develop and grow. I beg the Almighty, Lord Krsna, that in any future birth I take, even if it is to be in some hellish condition, that I may continue to be allowed to serve Your Divine Grace again and never forget Your causeless mercy.

Jaya Jaya Prabhupada! Jai Guru Deva! Jai Sri Krishna! Jai Radhe! Jai Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabu! Haribol !

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa

Please accept my humble obeisances and heartfelt thanks for taking the time to write to everyone and kindly answer our questions.

In the above article about the offenses of chanting, there is a section that emphasizes the importance of finding authorized instruction through a spiritual master and rending service to them:

“Therefore having a bona fide spiritual master and serving him and pleasing him and getting his mercy is essential. Otherwise there can be no advancement in Krishna consciousness. And unless the spiritual master is a pure devotee of Krishna then he has no potency to give you Krishna. He is simply a cheating rascal.”

My question is three-fold:
1. Can we accept Srila Prabhupada as our spiritual master?
2. If not, how does one go about finding a pure devotee of Krsna to serve and receive instruction from?
3. Does one have to associate with them physically or can they instruct you from afar, like in another state or country?

Again, I am so grateful to receive your emails and to be able to associate with you on this forum.

Hare Krsna.

    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.

    thankyou!
    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!
