Just what is Samadhi?

Hare Krishna Prabhu

Primary character of Krishna consciousness / practicing yoga is detached from material concepts of life, prabhu my questions are follows.
1)What is real material life?
2)What is procedure / process of detachment of material thinking?
3)How will we feel while detach from materialist life?
4)How to gradual improve and what is state of mind to attain ‘samadhi’?
5)While chanting so many thoughts come to mind and how to control this?

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Hare Krish Prabhu

I chant Hare Krishna maha mantra last few years, maximum try to chant daily sometime not do, average 2 round to 8 round daily as possible.
But now I am feeling good only and not for joy & happiness as above.
While chanting so many thought specifically disappoint in my life and i want to revenge someone.

Even I have read / hear Bhagavad-gita and Bhagavatam (going on) and I aware about this wrong.

I try to avoid the wrong thoughts but could not.
I request you kindly advice me.

2012 — The End of the World?

In the Bhagavad Gita conclusion, Lord Krishna has made it very clear:

sarva-dharman parityajya
mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo
moksayisyami ma sucah

Completely relinquishing all Dharmas, seek Me alone for refuge. I will release you from all sins. Grieve not.

Here, the word mam ekam (Me alone) is very important. If anyone wants to get released from bondage in this world, Lord Krishna only has to be approached. One has to surrender only to Him.

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Dasa Prabhu,

I want to know what the scriptures say about Dasavatara. After Kalki, will the Avataras of Lord Sriman Narayana repeat in the same order Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, ….. ?

Jai Sriman Narayana

Here is another report which shows that scientists themselves are thinking unscientifically. They still believe that the Universe was created some 14 billion years ago, even though there is no scientific evidence. These scientists always start with the presumption that there is no God, which they cannot prove at all.

GENEVA: The world’s largest atom smasher conducted its first experiments at conditions nearing those after the Big Bang, breaking its own record for high-energy collisions with proton beams crashing into each other on Tuesday at 3.5 times more force than ever before.

In a milestone for the $10-billion Large Hadron Collider’s ambitious bid to reveal details about theoretical particles and microforces, scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, collided the beams and took measurements at a combined energy level of 7 trillion electron volts (TeV).

“That’s it! They’ve had a collision,” said Oliver Buchmueller from Imperial College in London as people closely watched monitors.

In a control room, scientists erupted with applause when the first successful collisions were confirmed. Their colleagues from around the world were tuning in by remote links to witness the new record, which surpasses the 2.36 TeV CERN recorded last year.

Dubbed the world’s largest scientific experiment, researchers hope the machine can approach on a tiny scale what happened in the first split seconds after the Big Bang, which they theorise was the creation of the universe some 14 billion years ago.

The extra energy in Geneva is expected to reveal even more about the unanswered questions of particle physics, such as the existence of antimatter and the search for the Higgs boson, a hypothetical particle that scientists theorise gives mass to other particles and thus to other objects and creatures in the universe.

Two beams of protons began 10 days ago to speed at high energy in opposite directions around the tunnel, the coldest place in the universe, at a couple of degrees above absolute zero. CERN used powerful superconducting magnets to force the two beams to cross, creating collisions and showers of particles. “Experiments are collecting their first physics data —historic moment here!” a scientist tweeted on CERN’s official Twitter account.

“Nature does it all the time with cosmic rays [and with higher energy] but this is the first time this is done in Laboratory!” said another tweet.

When collisions become routine, the beams will be packed with hundreds of billions of protons, but the particles are so tiny that few will collide at each crossing.

Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha
My humble pranams. To clear the doubts of some bhakthas about the yuga cycle, I wish to provide the following information:

(as per Hindu scriptures, particularly the Srimad-Bhagavatam)

•The one day is divided into 14 periods. Six such periods are over. We are now in the 7th.
•Each period is named after the One Ruler who is appointed to rule the entire earthly world during that period. The generic name for such a ruler is Manu. The period is called a Manvantara.
•The name of the present Manu is Vaivasvata, the son of the Sun-God.
•How long is the day of Brahma ? (4.32 billion years)
•What is the present age of this universe ?
•What is the Hindu concept of Time ?

Names of the manvantaras of this day of Brahma upto the present seventh.
(each manvantara is of duration 306,720,000 human years)

1.Svaayambhuva Beginning of Creation
Dhruva Episode
Descent of the Lord as Half-man-half- lion to blessPrahlada
2.Svaarochisha The Episode of King Suratha

3. Uttama
4.Taamasa The Episode of Gajendra, the elephant-devotee
5. Raivata
6. Chaakshusha The churning of the Ocean of milk

There are seven more manvantaras to go in the future

We are in the 7th manvantara .
Each manvantara is divided into 71 maha-yugas.
We are in the 28th maha-yuga of this manvantara.
Each maha-yuga is divided into 4 yugas shown below for the current maha-yuga.
We are presently in the kaliyuga
of the 28th maha-yuga
of the 7th manvantara of Brahma’s day
(Duration of every kali-yuga = 432,000 years)
Notation a: = 432,000

Age of the Universe:

Portion of Brahma’s day elapsed so far
(till say, 2000 A.D.) consists of Duration Table
• 6 manvantara-twilights (6 x 4a)
• 6 manvantaras completed (6 x71 x10a )
• 1 manvantara-twilight before the 7th (4a )
• 27 maha-yugas past in this manvantara (27 x 10a )
• elapsed yugas in this maha-yuga ((4 + 3 + 2)a )
• 5102 years in kali-yuga
This adds up to 4567a + 5102 =
1,972,949,102 human years
This is the present (as of 2000A.D.) age of the universe in this day of Brahma Duration of Kali-yuga (a) =
432,000 (human years)
Duration of Dvapara-yuga (2a)
Duration of Treta-yuga (3a)
Duration of Satya-yuga (4a)
Duration of maha-yuga:
(a + 2a + 3a + 4a ) = 10a
Duration of manvantara: 71 x 10a
Duration of one manvantra- twilight : 4a
(one before every manvantara)

Duration of Brahma’s day:

One day of Brahma is of duration equivalent to 1000 mahayugas. His night is equally long. At the beginning of every day creation starts. At the end of the day all that was created merge in the Absolute and Brahma ‘sleeps’ as it were. 360 such days and nights make one year of Brahma. According to the Puranas, He has spent 50 years like this and this day is the first day in his fifty-first year!

One day of Brahma = 14 manvantaras + 15 manvantara twilights
(because there is an extra manvantara – twilight at the end of all the 14 manvantaras)
= 14 x 71 mahayugas + 15 x 4 
= 994 mahayugas + 60 
= 994 mahayugas + 6 mahayugas
= 1000 mahayugas
= 1000 x10  = 4,320,000,000 human years.
One ‘second’ of Brahma
= 4,320,000,000 / 12x60x60
= 100,000 human years

‘Back to the future’ Story:

Names of the remaining seven (future) manvantaras of this day of Brahma
• 8 Saavarni ———— ——->
• 9 Daksha-saavarni
• 10 Brahma-saavarni
• 11 Dharma-saavarni
• 12 Rudra-saavarni
• 13 Deva-saavarni
• 14 Indra-saavarni
after which cosmic night will follow The next Manu (i.e., the eighth) will be Saavarni. This promise was made by Mother Goddess to one King Suratha during the second Manvantara. To him (and another) the triple story of Mother Goddess is narrated in the Devi-bhagavatam ( also Chandi or Durg A-saptasati ). The story begins from a mythological event that happened after the end of the last kalpa (= day of Brahma) and ends up by forecasting the feats of Mother Goddess that are yet to happen in this kalpa. One such is the prediction that Suratha will be born as Manu Saavarni.

(Source: Srimad-Bhagavatam, IX – 3)
In the mid-satya-yuga of the first maha-yuga of the present manvantara i.e., around 115 million years ago there lived a King of the Solar dynasty, by name Kakudmi, and his beautiful daughter Revati. Not trusting the astrologers of his time, yet believing in the maxim ‘marriages are made in heaven’ Kakudmi took his daughter to the celestial world of Brahma the Creator (Note: in every satya-yuga such journeys are supposed to be possible) in order to ask the Creator Himself as to who would be the right marital match for his daughter. Kakudmi had somebody in his own mind. But Lord Brahma was available to him only after a twenty minutes or so of waiting time (by the standards of that world). When Kakudmi finally had the opportunity to ask Brahma his question, Brahma laughed and said:
My dear Kakudmi, from the time you came here your earthly world has passed through 27 maha-yugas and so none of whom you have in mind or their descendents are alive now. Right now people are enjoying the avatara (=descent) of Lord Krishna on the Earth. Go back and marry off your daughter to Balarama, the elder brother of Krishna’.
Thus it was that Kakudmi and Revati travelled ‘back to their future’ — from the 1st mahayuga to the 27th — and Revati was married to Balarama.
Note: 1 mahayuga = 43.2 ‘seconds’ for Brahma.

The flow of Time is eternal. Creation and Dissolution are only two events in a long cyclic succession of Cosmic events. There is no beginning in the past and there is no end to the future. Creation is a manifestation in concrete terms of the Absolute. Dissolution is when all the created universe merges in the Absolute. And that is when the period of non-manifestation begins. The periods of manifestation and of non-manifestation alternate. These are the days and nights of Brahma.
Brahma Himself is a manifestation of the Absolute. He has a life of 100 years in His time.
Between one kalpa (technical name for Brahma’s day) and the next, the only thing that survive are, Brahma himself (who has to be ‘brought back to memory’, by the Absolute, after his ‘sleep’ !), the vedas in their latent form and the collected aggregate of vaasanaas (imprints of actions and thoughts) of all individual souls. Just as each kalpa is followed by another kalpa with an intervening Cosmic Night, so also one Brahma is followed by another Brahma.

Jai Sri Krishna

    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!
