If the earth is a computer simulation whose master computer is that? No doubt, everything here is temporary and volatile. Even programmed by some higher power . But how did we get to know these technologies? Does some power simulate all these scenes on this earth? And it gives us the knowledge of science and technology ?This idea makes me feel like a cartoon character . After all this world moving with all its matter is a cartoon , I am just a character in the movie ! I am simulated by some machine that makes all the parts of my body do different chores ! Whatever , it is my hypothesis that my presence may be temporary but not false or simulated by another machine. The proof is simple. My mother took 9 long months to fill up the blanks In my body and mind to deliver a full person of me. So is the case with all lives on this earth. They are made of the five + eight + three different combination of matter Life come and go , scenes change . But the 5+8+3 do not change . Each life come here with this 5+8+3 in different combinations . An ant is as busy and intelligent as people . Life cannot be written off calling it ‘simulated’. But sure Created protected and destroyed . Love and hatred is just two sides of human nature . Only two opposites can meet and create results . Hare Krishna

Sri Purandara Dasa who was a great Devotee of Shri. Krishna sang so many Kirtanas on Krishna , also thought to be first Guru of the Carnatic style of music , wrote many many devotional songs on Krishna . He in one of his songs he asks his students \’\’ making a home in the market place can you demand for silence ? \’\’
This statement calls for an introspection of one\’s mind and its activities. Living in the area of a busy market one cannot demand for silence to in to meditation.Same way living in household cannot ask for transcendental meditation . Nor can one leave the household and go to a forest to meditate on Krisha. Transcendental meditation means leaving everything behind and live on Bhagawat consciousness. While being in the meditation perform the duties of a household . But household is very earthly and requires devotion to perform well. So Krishna says \’Yagnah karma samudbhavaha\’\’.3:14BG. Karma are actions. Transcend means surpass.so karma surpasses the results of actions that is called Yagna.
Hare Krishna. Even in the Iskcon you all live in a community and share work and food. You are all all the time striving to keep Krisna consciousness above all. If something is to be done standing on the earth one cannot fly to the skies searching for material for a community living. All materials are here right on this ground that is earth. Transcendental consciousness is possible only when a devotee lives alone and cares for those who come in need of him. Yet in the Bhagavatham we see that King Rishbhadeva despite his transcendental meditation he had to take consequent births due to his attraction towards a deer calf and his attachment to this fawn re knotted him to earthly life. Hare Krishna.

I want a Q to be answered .
What is sense gratification? We have five senses . Each one has its own peripheral needs , fulfilment and a limit . The buck stops at some point. Along with this we have hunger , need for Oxygen, thirst and health problems in the whole body . Some congonital , some inherited and some caused by environment. All these affect /effect the 5+1 senses So what exactly is sense gratification ? Is it wrong to satisfy the calls of senses? If it is wrong to satisfy the calls of senses there is no need for a temple and a tasty kitchen attached to the temple. We satisfy all five senses+ the pangs of of hunger , thirst and need for good air. All present temples have exemplary electrical and water fixtures . It is amazing to see all those bhaktas want all facilities that they get in five star , or may be seven star hotels. Even the Iscon has such facilities . How do you explain that these facilities are for not for sense gratification?

Thank you . The right thing to do in this time of Kaliyuge Prathama paade all we can do is get hold of Krishna and chant his name.

Hate Krishna ,
People seem to think the four Varnas are unique to Indian Hindus. It is very unfair to think this way about a sect of people of a particular country. The four Varnas are only a basic division of people according to their services to the earth. If they are not Brahmins they are called priests in the other parts of the earth. Priests are found all over the world even this day. In the language of sSanskrit they are called Brahmins. These Varnas are only a cover . The wilful perpetration of destruction takes place ‘ over all’. Whether it is Nature or humans , both perpetrate sins to change the face of earth .that is the meaning of Vishwaroopa.Hare Krishna.

Hare Krishna Shrila Madhudvisa, something is wrong some where while digesting truths from Shrimad Bagavadgita . The caste system was not created . It naturally happened according to the choice of individual passion and ability. Later it turned in to caste system as people of same profession flocked in a same area for the sake of production and business . Most professions had trade secrets to be coveted and to be protected from misuse and pilferage. This needed tight and compact set of families that could hold on to tradition and prcatces. Lord Krishna does not talk of caste system . He says Chaturvidha Varna …Varna does not mean caste . Caste means ‘jathi’ which means a branch of the ‘varna’ which purely creation of humans for convenience of divulging trade secrets to the right people and surely they are good and intelligent enough to carry on the trade. Even today in this country if you move to the villages you would see these particular sects with their own trade secrets and economic activities. For ex. The farmer and the iron smith ..they work for each other. The modern advancement in science and technology have no meaning for them . In a country of 1.38 billion with hardly 5 square meter space a family is happily settled in the cities in these times of travel to other planets. This unbelievable density in each square meter has enhanced the power of Krishna. They live chanting Krishna in utter poverty as the compact nature of Chaturvarnyam is now very lose and corrupt due to the natural reasons created by Krishna. Perhaps the pollution started after the MahaBharata war!Actually the ” Arjuna Vishada verses” perfectly suit the present political , economical and social state in this country. Hare Krishna.

Thank you .
\’\’ Yatra Yogeshwara Krishno , Yatra Partho Dhanurdhara , Thatra Shrirvijayo nishchita\’\’
So I rest peacefully reading all those papers written about Krishna . And His Gita is my solace and hobby .
So Mayavadis also would disappear like dew drops in the morning sun .
The only definite theory .

Hare Krishna. There is a fifth section of people Shrila Madhudwisa. They are called ‘maunis’. The route word for ‘ munis’ . Maun means silence. Any which way we go round and round on the same wheel called regurgitation of knowledge. Or swing between ideas or concepts or further more jump from one branch to another. That is what monkeys do. Shrimad Gita’s first five chapters are eye openers to this truth . The more I repeat reading these chapters I am given to understand that this fifth section of people remain in the state of ‘silence’ and and may or may not meditate or worship . They neither accept nor argue. Dogmatism is unknown to them. They move smoothly not depending on anyone because they are neither entrepreneurs nor investors. So they do not hanker for results. This is ‘Brahma nirvana muchhate ‘ ! Hare Krishna.

Thank you , Madhu Dasa , I am looking forward and trying to open the Hare Krishna site to download a pdf version of Bhagavatam , canto 5.2 . As I already tasted the nectar of all 1 to 5.1 cantos. I am the ardent friend of Shrila . BBTirtha maharaj. He was kind enough to present me with the book of Gita with purports of Shrila P. Pada maharaj . I do have a simple version of Gita with the purports of Swami Chinmaya. Though the purports by Shrila Pada is latest in print . I read this every day.. I thank Shrila BB Tirtha Maharaj for the same.
I don’t indulge in passing opinions.
I had the pleasure of reading Cantos of 1,2,3,4 and 5.1. While I bought the 1st Canto in the Iskcon shop when I visited one of the temples. I admire and congratulate all the spirits that run this institution . The other cantos on the Internet . I am in self exile in this forest close to Mumbai. I find this the only way to be in the nonstop Krishna Consciousness. I indulge in social service in this village at the foots of these western ghats . Most are tribes and illiterate . I do my bits for them. My only outward contact is the internet. I successfully downloaded all the 2,3,4,5.1 Cantos of Shire Bhagavatam with Shrila Prabhu Pada’s purports and enjoyed . But I am perpetually defeated when I try to down load next cantos. I cannot afford to keep paper books as the monsoon spoils them with continuos moisture for three months in a unbroken stretch.
I wonder if you can help me with the rest of the Cantos so that I can continue the treat to my mind . Thank you Hare Krishna.
I have evolved from an ordinary worshipper to this state of enjoying Gita and Bhagavatam In my solitude. Hare Krishna.
