Are the Hare Krishnas a Cult?

Actually Mary I missed that your son is 21 and has been a devotee for a couple of years,sorry about that.

Actually this attachment that you feel is only material. Natural ,yes,but material. You cannot keep your son with you always . Or anyone for that matter. Yes ,you are attached to your son because that is natural. But why are you angry? Because he joined the movement or because you are nt getting what you want because of it>? Would you rather not see your son because hes a dope head on the streets or because hes locked up in prison? Would that be better? Hes on a spiritual journey that has nothing to do with such attachments as birthday parties and other temporary things that are basically meaningless in the ultimate sense.Kindly consider that he is living a wonderfully pure life and gaining so much knowledge by travelling around,,especially to India. Please dont put all of this aside because you are missing your son.If this negative attitude persists and you repeatedly state that ‘your God’ is the only way,etc,etc ,,you will only ruin your relationship with your son. Rather than call Krishna Conciousness brainwashing I would call it potent! The process works! Also note that millions in India have followed this path for thousands of years,,Indians are VERY family oriented.I dont think all of India is brainwashed and every other country isnt. Thats absurd. Our tradition is taught daily by our members in High Schools,Universties, all over the World. Professers of relgion have said countless times that our scriptures are the oldest and are most certainly bona fide. Please do more research before you condemn your son more. And refrain from any Jesus rhetoric as you would expect a Muslim or a Hindu to do who was constantly quoting scripture and putting you down with verses from ther relgion to convince you that being a christian is wrong.Everyone is destined for they re own spiritual path. I can also assure you that the more you preach about Jesus the more determined he will be to avoid you. Your son s spiritual path is obviously not Christianity,,just as I may love vanilla and you may hate it,,,but neither one of is wrong..we just have different tastes. Please consider these points . Good luck.

These allegations have come ‘out of ‘ ALL relgions. Exactly what is brainwashing? If you watch T.V. every day for hours is that not brainwashing? Actually our leader said’ Yes,we are brainwashing,,you have dirty brains that need to be washed! ‘ Also , Krishna stated long before Jesus appeared that He was the Supreme. The difference in our beleifs is that we only want to serve God and provide Him with service/enjoyment,,we do not seek enjoyment for ourselves. We dont leave the Temple service and go to a movie ,or a bar,or Mc Donalds,,,We strive daily to avoid all sin at all costs. As long as we are not sinning and behaving badly and behaving better than most others on the planet I dont see what the issue is. Last but not least ,God is unmlimited..Who are you to dare attempt to limit Him? All things are possible with God. Lets not forget that.

Actually if you notice , MOST christians DO NOT follow the ten commandments ,,namely’Thou shall not kill’. To be a christian means to be Christlike. Im sure if you gave Jesus a choice between eating an apple or a cow,,He would choose the apple ,,since He was all about compassion. Most Hare Krishnas are far more devoted and far more Christian in beleifs and behavior than most Christians. The Bible also states that we should nt pass judgement on anyone for any reason. So all paths have good and bad points,,good and bad members. Lastly,our tradition is far older than the Bible so it makes more since to me to follow the tradition that appeared first.

Dearest Mary..Im not sure how long your son has been a devotee or how old he is. As a devotee for 25 years I can offer you some insight regarding this issue.In my early days I was very fanatical about many things ,,especially the fact that my family ate meat. I would actually confront anyone from India [strangers] in the grocery store and scold them about buying meat. I was VERY heavy with everyone I knew regarding this issue. I covered my car with ‘anti meat eating stickers’ etc. Our philosphy is very pure and requires high standards and in the beginning we become very anxious to live that life of purity. As a result we often miss the other rules that order us to remain ALWAYS full of compassion for everyone. Clearly ,criticism of others habits in a negative way is not the way to preach and it does nt win people over. Most of us ,as we grow spiritually realize that we cannot condemn anyone or treat them harshly if we want them to become devotees or at least respect the devotees and our choices. It is also not part of our philosophy to put others into anxiety in any way. I think that as your son matures he will read these things and realize that badgering you over your diet is not the proper way to behave. He should teach you how to make preps that he approves of or make them himself ,,or bring nice preps from the Temple for you to try. My point is that when we are new we are very heavy toward others who are not so strict in they re beleifs. As we mature this subsides in most cases. I learned eventually not to police what others eat and I also realized that it does nt work.At most I may not share a meal with you because you are not vegetarian but I would never condemn. As we grow we realize that being a vegetarian in itself is enough to make people think. You dont have to put them down or preach. Please give your son time . You could also read the small books to gain a basic understanding of our philosophy and you could point out to him the instructions on being humble and not condemning anyone. Its a chore and its difficult at first. My family situation was the same but as time went on and we all matured and learned more about this tradition it became as normal as breathing. Good luck to you and I can assure you that this negative behavior about your diet will cease. Another good way to deal with it is to eat seperately . Good luck. I know its not easy. Also I want to say that our leader Srila Prabhupada has stated that being a vegetarian is not spiritual,,even elephants and mokeys are vegeatrians.

Actually ,as a 25 year member I do not recall any ‘Hare Krishna’ trying to convince me of anything. The books themselves convinced me because they are pure and true. It was something that I felt [feel] in my heart. It was natural. I never once had to be convinced of anything. It was/is blatantly obvious that it IS the truth when practiced properly. This is another reason I became a devotee. I did nt need a preaching sermon to convince me and I did nt get or need condemnation of other religions to prove the point that Krishna conciousness was bona fide. Its just our natural state so there is no question of having to convince anyone. I sure never saw them guilt trip anyone or make bogus charity/healing claims or financial promises in the name of God. No I never saw that. But I have seen it with many others. Especially Christians. Talk about a group that never stops trying to forcfully convince people.

Actually it IS a part of our philosophy to become sinless! Actually ,you MUST become sinless to enter the Kingdom of God. What are you reading prabhu?

    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!
