The Best Welfare Work

Hare Krishna,

To ignore someone’s suffering will not benefit anyone. Why not give the starving people food AND the Hare Krishna mantra? We are told we must take care of our bodies, not by starving them or overfeeding them, so if we give these people some food perhaps they will be in a healthier and happier condition and therefore be more inspired to work for Krishna. Simply giving them Krishna or ignoring them will continue the suffering, and they won’t be able to improve their karma or get rid of it entirely, because they are so focused on their basic needs. So, fill their basic needs, and they will be less worried about starving and dying, and have more time to pursue their Dharma. We shouldn’t be feeding them because we want the benefits, no, we should be feeding them selflessly because it will help inspire them to pursue a Krishna consciousness lifestyle.

To hold back and not help them is like seeing people burning in a house and saying “it doesn’t matter if I help them, they were going to die one day eventually.” If you help them they will be more appreciative of life, grateful, and inspired. That is what we should want.

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Hare Krishna,
Alright. I had the misconception that we had to be in the physical presence of a spiritual master, which troubled me because I do not live around any temples or like minded people. Thank you for your time.

Hare Krishna,
So we can surrender to Srila Prabhupada and he can be our bona fide spiritual master even if he’s not physically present with us?

Hare Krishna, thank you for the reply.

If we are unable to find a bona fide spiritual master within our lifetime for some reason, yet we still surrender to Krishna and follow the principles, will we be able to attain at least the Vaikuntha planets? For example remembering Krishna upon death will elevate us to the spiritual world (even if it’s not Vrindavan); is this possible if we haven’t met a spiritual master or haven’t completely surrendered to them?

Hare Krishna,

Forgive me for any offense, but why do we have to chant 16 rounds a day? If we want quality chanting, and can’t chant fast enough to fit 16 rounds into our day, then if we tried to chant them all we’d be inattentive and rushing. Is that only for initiation? And do we have to be initiated to go back to Godhead?

    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.

    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!
