Everything is in Srila Prabhupada’s Books!
This article is the truth of all spiritual life. Srila Prabhupada’s books are all we need. Got my Authorized Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (hardcover and softcover editions) with the Science of Self-Realization DVD, Beyond Birth & Death with Perfection of Yoga free bonus gifts today in the mail. I am so happy to be a Krishna Devotee. It is a process of growth and renewal in my life as I embark with the Gita As It is, chanting the Mahamantra, and reading my couple of Krishna Conscious Teaching booklets to grow in my bond with Srila Prabhupada and as one of Lord Sri Krishna’s Pure Devotees. Prabhupada’s books contain everything one needs to know about life and how to live well and successfuly chart one’s journey by Prabhupada’s expert guidance and Krishna Merciful Hands. Hare Krishna!

Very nice article, Madhuvisa Dasa. I really like reading your articles and following Srila Prabhupada in being a Krishna Devotee. My family isn’t Krishna Conscious and so, I am practically alone in this, but they are very accepting for the most part and I feel happy to be able to follow Lord Krishna freely without any hardships. My wife recommended I adopt a vegetarian diet and I think vegetarianism is a natural way of eating and drinking. I really like the Krishna Conscious vegetarianism. Try to keep what I can of the vegetarian lifestyle and I will try to offer my vegetarian foodstuffs to Lord Sri Krishna as much as I am able to. Chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra daily for 20-50 times a day is all I can do, since I have no use for japa-beads. Lord Krishna only gives one what they are ready to take on for devotional service and activities related to such. I read Bhagavad-gita As It Is and keep it simple for now. It would be nice to study the Science of Self-Realization text online in e-book format and read what Srila Prabhupada said in the Interviews, Letters, Additional Texts, and Written Articles by His Divine Grace. Well, I look forward to sharing more as time goes on. Jaya Srila Prabhupada! Jaya Sri Krishna! Hare Krishna!

i have been a regular reader of ur krishna-connect newsletter since summer of 2012. around late september, i ordered your bhagavad-gita offer with the bonus gifts beyond birth and death, perfection of yoga, & guide to self-realizati dvd. i already had a a set of japa-beads with bead-bag to carry them in. usually, i find it much easier to chant hare krishna at will, with no use of japa-beads. often, i use hare krishna mantra-meditation when siting cross-legged with eyes closed to focus more intensely on the hare krishna mantra. i have considered many times of adopting krishna conscious vegetarianism to live healthier and practice my krishna consciosness in my spiritual life, but find it very hard to do. it is something i need to figure out on how i will get beyond eating animal flesh, but as i chant hare krishna mantra more so and read bhagavad-gita as it is and watch srila prabhupada on guide to self-realization, then perhaps, i’ll develop a higher taste for krishna prasadam vegetarian foodstuffs and chantng more and study of prabhupada’s books. i have greatly benefited from your krishna-connect newsletter and i wish to express my joy and gratitude for helping me know more about lord krishna and his topmost science of the soul. thank you and hare krishna to all who make the krishna-store, krishna-connect newsletter, and krishna.org programs online possible for isolated devotees like myself to follow lord krishna and become a pure devotee of srila prabhupada. a yahoo! group i really like and access is: krishna bhagavan: the bhaktipriya. this is where i first learned about lord krishna and found faith starting at this point in my journey in krishna consciousness. thanks.

Haribol Madhuvisa Dasa,
Please accept my pranams.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
Who is Lord Sri Krishna? I am interested in living as a pure devotee and following Lord Sri Krishna the rest of my life. My wife is supportive of me living as a Krishna Devotee. Prior to accepting Lord Sri Krishna as my Lord, God, and Savior as well as Srila Prabhupada as guru, I would abuse my wife and it only took a report by the local police to make me realize that I needed Lord Krishna in my life. Despite, possibly facing eviction from our housing, and a court appearance, I am ready to follow Lord Krishna as His Pure Devotee. This is my life sentence without parole imposed on me by the Supreme Personality of Godhead, since I have accepted His plea bargain for my soul and my life to become a Pure Devotee and live with my family, of my wife and infant daughter, regardless, of what happens to us and our situation. Just constantly chanting Hare Krishna mahamantra and live and play by the rules set by Srila Prabhupada in the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is and other Vedic Literatures he has translated and all of his writings about the Vedic Science of Krishna Consciousness: The Science of the Soul. Hare Krishna, Madhuvisa Dasa, and please write me back on this. I will regularly update you on these matters as they unfold and you can guide me as needed.

How do I become a Krishna Devotee? What is Initiation that I hear so many Iskcon gurus talk about? I hear that initiation that Iskcon gurus of the GBC says is an absolute must isn’t necessary to be a Krishna Devotee to be a true full-fledged disciple of Srila Prabhupada. What ways can I join a Hare Krishna Society or Krishna Conscious network that isn’t run by the GBC and become a full-fledged member of the Krishna Devotees? Please help me out! I accept Srila Prabhupada as my only Spiritual Master and read only the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is? Are there other books like Science of Self-Realization and other literatures translated by Srila Prabhupada for free of charge with free shipping in the postal mail? Let me know. My mailing address is:
Please send as many Krishna Conscious literatures as you can for free cost and free shipping to my PO Box for me to read and build up a Krishna Consciousness Library. Any literatures will do, great or small. Thank you. Hare Krishna! I am into becoming a full-fledged devotee and need help in achieving this goal for me to become a member of a Hare Krishna Society.

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,
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.
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!
