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 .

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 .

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 .

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 .

I have cut the time of doing the mantra from about twenty minutes
a round to ten minutes ! . I have done this by speeding up and
changing from Rama to Ram . I will build it up to 16 rounnds .

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.

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 ) .

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 .

What are your comments on http://www.equip.org/articles/inside-iskcon/ . 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 .

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

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.

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 .
