Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

I had a comment which I detract , which you deleted and had shown you all up in a bad light . I had said that the Bible had said that “no
one had seen God ” . Well I have subsequetally found out that the
Bible contradicts itself . It says Moses saw God face- to face !. I
notice you don’t get that with the Gita – the Gita doesn’t contradict
itself , I notice from reading it .

A Regulated Life is Very Important

I read in today’s newspaper that a BBC Radio One breakfast DJ
who started getting up very early for his program wasn’t getting enough
sleep . First of all he was partying late at night and getting up very
early ( and struggling to) . Then he started to go to bed at 7pm at
night – and still he felt tired . He found the solution he only needs
six hours sleep ! – and he wakes up refreshed.
Krishna consciousness is right in saying you only need six hours sleep .

Chanting Japa – Mantra Meditation

I had my main question answered on the maha-mantra by a Hare Krishna lady in the city-centre of Belfast , Northern Ireland . Why the Hare krishna Mantra is not in the original text of the Bhagavad Gita but
only in the commentary of the Gita As It Is , is because:
As you know when Krishna told Arjuna to take up yogic meditation Arjuna
said yoga was too difficult , he couldn’t even control ” the restless waves of the mind. The mind was going hither and thither ( here and there )”.
So Krishna told him to “just surrender to me , and give up all varieties of religion ” Even that was too difficult as that was a bit too vague –
So meanwhile when this was going on the whole conversation was being
relayed by Sanjay , the witness to Vyasa who was writing this down – the
whole Gita ( time was suspended for the exsposition of the Gita by Krishna ) .
Only later when Arjuna was victorious and had time to try to surrender to Krishna, he needed a method and after the Gita was transcribed he was given the mantra !.
He needed a method to give him strength to surrender to Krishna at the start of the Age of Kali. I had figured out myself about when the Gita was being written but the lady friend told me about the restless mind .

At the moment I am doing one round every morning . I find I get
high in the morning then I have a come- down in the afternoon . Could
this be normal in the beginning . ?. Can you get immune to some of the
rounds and have to up the dose , to keep on an even keel ?. What about
the scandalous gurus in ISKCON who turned onto sex and drugs or were
they just psycopaths from the start anyway ? . I don’t want to have a falldown like the false gurus in ISKCON . I had a falldown with
kundalini yoga . Please help . I hope to build it up to 16 rounds .
It was taking me twenty mins. to do one round because I was singing it
to the Radha Temple – London tune , instead of saying and the interfering
thoughts . The mantra was doing me good in the past , nearly acheiving
brahmacharya , and maybe improviing my memory .
I don’t want a falldown . Hari Bol .

I heard that it is ok to lie and steal if it benefits Krishna.
Is that true ?. I think it is ok to tell a “white ” lie if it will
protect someone from something bad , but I don’t think stealing is
recommended in any purpose ? . What is the official line .

Meditational Yoga — The Prerequisites

My kind regards to Dev for his comments .

» Posted By PETER GOODALL On July 18, 2012 @ 10:52 am

I have been veering between Krishna consciousness and Christianity.
I find it almost impossible to keep to all the regulative principles.
What if a Hindu neighbour brings you meat for you to eat later. It is
given with love , so I feel I must eat it – what should I do ? , eat it or dump it .
All this means I feel I’m only dabbling with Krishna consciousness,
so I feel like quitting and dumping the books . I was only doing one
round of the mantra and have quit until further advice. I feel it would be
very sinful to do the mantra and not keep the principles .
One morning several months ago I had a vision of Krishna in a dream :
his two handed form projected onto the inner curtain like a film being
projected , Him with his flute . Also before that I dreamt that I was
chanting the maha- mantra.
I was also been fed coffee by my other neighbour ( the meat giver’s
mother -in- law ) – it was compulsory .
I don’t want to do yoga as I was getting bad kundalini effects . You’re right Krishna consciousness is easier .
Years ago I didn’t feel like going for ISKCON as it was compulsory for me to eat meat , a rule by my parents . My parents hated the mantra
– My dad ” Why do they have to say the the same thing over and over again ” and my mum ” It’s not music ” . My parents are long gone , deceased .

The Absolute Necessity of a Bona Fide Spiritual Master

I was going to quit Krishna consciousness and go back to ordinary
yoga but reading some of the comments above briefly , I have thought
how could I get a bona fide guru ?. There are too many charlatons about . Prabphupada is the guru for me , for advice all I have to do is read his books . For being a yogi you need a guru and chanting the
maha mantra is easier . As Arjuna said yoga is too hard .
By the way is the maha- mantra mentioned in the Srimad , the words by
Vyasa ? . That would answer my question . I know it’s in the Kala
Upanishad but that is later than the Gita . The Gita was towards the end
of the last age . Please help. Hari Bol.

Why we criticize Mayavadis?

The answer to the Mayavadis and the Voidists is that : If God has an
Intelligence , then he must have a Personality . One can’t go without the
other . They’re both avoiding the issue . ( Pardon the pun ) .

Is seperate from ISKCON?

Hare Krishna ,
I would like you all to Google, The Reluctant Messenger, Hebrews
9:27 Does Not Disprove Reincarnation . The Reluctant Messenger says
that it is quoted out of context . The url is :
The Christians quote that verse as their main arguememt against
reincarnation . Thank you for your previous cooments Mahudvisaji .
Hari Bol .

Hari Krishna,
What are your comments on . Because of it I think it’s why you fell out with the
main organisation ISKCON . I don’t believe in Christianity’s eternal
hellfire and damnation . Reincarnation is just and fair . According to ISKCON even demons can get liberated eg . if they attack Krishna .
According to ISKCON , it’s not aeons of reincarnations as the
Christians think .
Please comment . Hari Bol .

Chanting Hare Krishna on Japa Beads

Answer me this, please, why offer food to Krishna if he doesn’t
need to eat.? He is God and self- sufficent.

Hare Krishna,
Thanks to the comments Mark and Madhudvisa . Part of my
problem I went off the vegetarian diet . I am sticking to it now .
It takes me twenty minutes to do one round. Is that too long- maybe it’s
because of the thoughts. At this rate I wouldn’t be be able to do 16 rounds.
By the way when I first got your emails the right hand margin was eating
into the print, my fault , I rectified that my clicking on the other print
icon on my computer . That’s why I tried to resign up again but it said I
was already signed up . Please send the original emails out again.
Not resign but re-sign . THANK you.
PS . As you said the way to control the genitals is through the tongue –
in other words watch what you eat !.

I recently started the Maha Mantra. I had already got a set of beads – the mala , from Indian friends in the street. Years ago I did a postal
course on Kundalini Yoga , and I was forced off a vegetarian diet by my dad.My parents are dead years ago and I can indulge in a veggie diet.
I had bad effects from the kundalini and I am on injections now.
Cutting it short , I was turned on sexually by one round of the mantra. threetimes. I was going to quit , but I’m not depressed by the incident today and I think I could be purging samskaras ( bad karma ) . Will this pass and will my sexdrive diminish ( I want it to ). I nearlyquit from Madhudvisa’s emails . I signed up again.

The Spirit of Bhagavad Gita

This isn’t really a comment on the Gita but the Srimad . It is in krishna .com Q and
A . ” Why is Krishna always naughty ? Shouldn’t God be good ? “. there is a quotation from the SB saying that Krishna used to break into houses and pass stool and urine
on the floor . I don’t believe it ! – is this a new correcction of the Srimad by the revisionary ISKCON . This is not mentioned in the ” Krishna ” book I noticed .
Srimad Bhagavad, 10.8. 31 .

    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!

      Madhudvisa dasa
