Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Are all the articles in the Back2Godhead.com website after Srila Prabhupada passed away physically in 1977 “bonafide” articles or not?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. What is the plan after this set of books are sold? Is Krishna Books Inc going to print it or how will you get more sets to print after this. Because they will be more people who want SRmad Bhagavatam to read.

Why are temples not for Kali-yuga. Is the process of self-realization which is meditation on Visnu is for Satya-yuga, sacrifices(yagnas) is for treta-yuga, the worship of the deities within temples is for dvapara yuga and sankirtana for kali-yuga.
And when you mean material world you mean the conditions of kali-yuga. Not necessarily other yugus like satya-yuga, treta-yuga, dvapara yuga. Because in the other yugas especially satya-yuga does not seem like there is suffering because everyone is brahmanical. They also go though birth, old-age, disease and death. But for them they can tolerate these miseries better than us and have the best life one can have in the material world.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I have a question regarding helping devotees or people who are aspiring to be devotees(pure of course or people who want to be pure).
Prabhuji if some devotee or a person aspiring to be a pure devotee has some material difficulties in life should we help them materially(food water, shelter) also since their goal is Krsna or to be a pure devotee of Krsna? or at least until they can support themselves. What do you say?
Actually what can a devotee or a person aspiring to be a devotee who seriously have these serious material difficulties of things like food, water, shelter or clothing do?

You said and saying that, “So Krishna took this opportunity of Arjuna’s bewilderment to speak Bhagavadagita in front of everyone. So everyone there assembled on the battlefield on both sides heard the Bhagavad-gita. Actually the discussion is meant for the benefit of everyone. Arjuna is already Krishna’s friend and devotee, he was just put into this bewilderment by Krishna for the purpose of speaking Bhagavad-gita which is for the benefit of all people.”
So tell me what was the point of the fighting then if everyone on both sides heard the bhagavad gita on the battlefield of Kuruksetra. Why there was anger, animosity, envy, jealousy, pride, bigotry,etc and other negative feelings and as a result soldier’s wife and children got affected by this fighting in a bad way.
This all sounds so conradictory, confusing(or sort of confusing) and weird or strange of what Krishna was doing overall in that period including and especially during the battles or war of Kuruksetra.
I would very much appreciate your answer. Thank-you for giving your time to read my inquiry(although feel in my head in one sense that you giving me time is not such a big deal as to thank you, but i should still be grateful and thank you. Thank-you again for listening this, and thank-you if you reply to this and thank-you for everything so far.)

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Srila Prabhupada did a lot in his life to serve his spiritual master and Krsna. Srila Prabhupada did the work of like 1000 men or 10,000 or 1,000,000 men. He wrote more than 80 books. He traveled all over the world preaching, giving lectures, opening temples and spreading the movement throughout the world.
What Prabhupada did i cannt do in a million lifetimes.

Hare Krsna Madhudivisa dasa prabhuji. You say you are very busy always. What in Krsna Conssciousness keeps you busy? Actually i want to know how your daily routine or day is like when you get up in the morning till when you go to sleep at night? Do you go and preach during the day by going to people’s house door to door and/or on the streets?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I have a huge problem. Well hopefully you read this mail or inquiry i just sent you. i make a vow any vow like i did of reading books from the start to the finish and follow the process which is chnating 16 rounds following the four regulative principles and 1-2 hours of reading books. But i never do it. And this has been the problem for my whole life as far as i can remember in life( or this life).
Somewhile back on wikipedia i was reading about kali yuga not that it matters to us in Krsna Consciosuness, Prabhupada established or true Krsna Consciosuness really.
One of the things of “With regard to human relationships, Markandeya’s discourse says:”
People will take vows and break them soon after.
Anyways that is my situation. What should i do?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa
What is a Vaisistya? I saw it on Vyāsa-pūjā Offering to His Divine Grace Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Mahārāja, 1961 on prabhupada books.com. And on Ramesvara 1981 Interview on History of ISKCON — Full Text i saw that Prabhupada books should not be sold like the bibles in any way including the gold gilding and selling it for free. She said should get renumeration for the bible.
Sometime back i read about the mango example on prabhupadabooks.com. And i put the word mango and found it on prabhupadabooks.com.
Essays and Articles : EA 30: The Real Peace Formula : EA 30-1: The Real Peace Formula :
Yet although love of God is being given freely and easily, people do not care for it. Guru Maharaja Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati used to say that if we take a langera mango, which is the highest quality mango in India, very costly, sweet, and tasty, and go from door to door and try to distribute it freely, people will doubt: “Why has this man brought this langera mango? Why is he trying to distribute it freely? There must be some motive behind it.” Similarly, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu distributes this Krishna consciousness freely, but people are so foolish that they think, “What is there to simply chanting Hare Krishna? This is meant for the foolish who cannot speculate and who do not have any higher standard of knowledge.” But factually this is not the case. In Bhagavad-gita it is said that out of millions and millions of people, only a few are so fortunate as to be interested in Krishna consciousness. We should not neglect this information, for it is very rare. If we prosecute Krishna consciousness, our lives will be successful, and our mission of human life will be fulfilled. The gift of Krishna consciousness is very valuable and very rare. Of the innumerable living entities who are wandering and transmigrating in the 8,400,000 species of life, he who takes to Krishna consciousness is most fortunate, for he has found a great spiritual treasure.
Is it because so that this renumeration for selling for a price(in other words not for free) is to promote a sense of value of Krsna Consciousness and plus that Krsna Consciousness is not a cheap thing to be had. You have to pay the price to acheive it. And i do understand it as it is sort of my case and situation in life really especially with Krsna Consciousness and the books. i have the books and somewhat sincere but not wholly sincere. And no matter what even though i did not pay it is still valuable because it was paid so that i can have it. But no matter what i will be serious. I am in a very tough situation because both my mind my past bad habits, a lot of times my body and other living entities(mostly human) and sometimes if not a lot of the times the environment or weather seems to be a obstacle or obstacles. I owe it to use the books i have gotten even though i did not pay for it by reading it sincerely reading it from start to finish and of course following the instrctions (at least to the best of my abilities in the beginning)

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Is the understanding that Krsna Consciosuness is religion but not a sectarian religion. It is based on love of God. And it is based on Vedix civilization the oldest which has no beginning in history?

Hare Krsna prabhuji. My goals or wants in life has been and will be to be happy and have love. i am unable to get love. My wants are reasonable and much more than reasonable. i have the right to want and have it. I don’t think and hope that my wants are not materialistic in any way. Of course besides these the only thing materialistic i would want is have the basic necessities of life which is right and enough food to eat, a place to live and so and of course so that i can use these things for krishna in krsna consciousness but still. nothing more and nothing less in the basic necessities of life.
And i don’t mind the the long answers you wrote and time you took. You said “I hope you appreciate it and follow it, put it into practice in your life.” I of course appreciate what you said and will put to practice if not fully at now in the present will endeavour to do it. I think i can. but i all i need is the will and determination and need to be sincere to put it into practice.
They was never a time i did not appreciate the reply to you gave whether how long it is. and i never never mind how long your reply is. if you want to write your reply as long a book or even more i would not mind.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Just one more thing regarding relationship in the material world or association with non devotees. First of all i should not associate with non-devotees in a relationship form unless in a official way to get work done ? Seond while associating with them i feel contaminated or affected by what they said and good and cannot and will not agree with them. That i should learn to read people so that i don’t agitate them i thought it is a waste of time to learn to read people. but i feel affected. should i learn to read people especially people i associate with so that they don’t be agitated or what.
Anyways am i right to think that associating with non-devotees like the one i did is useless and waste of time. And whatever they say and said is all non-sense and false about life, , society and what not like the ones that i associated said to me. even if they is a little truth it is still defective and false and poisonous from the degree they talking from right.?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji.
Like you mentioned “husband and wife relationship can be perfected if the husband and wife come together and serve Krishna together. If they both have the idea of pleasing Krishna and together try to please Krishna then their married life will be a great success.”
Can it be true of any relationship that it will be perfected. I mean for example if two friends come together having the idea of pleasing krsna and serve. Or for example me or my relative or any relationship between two people in this world to to please krsna by serving him.
When they come together to please Krsna it won’t be a material relationship anymore right?. The relationship will be spiritualized. It will be a spiritual relationship right.

With the greatest respect, if you simply get in your car and drive somewhere you will indeed arrive at the “correct” destination.
Correct in the sense that one has allowed one’s inner self, unperturbed by the twists and turns of the road to direct the vehicle unconsciously in order to arrive at wherever you intended to be.
If, on the other hand the goal is simply to use a map, and get quickly and painlessly from A to B (and also miss the scenery and whatever wonderful unfoldings can happen along a journey), then of course, simply use a map.
Either way, all roads DO lead to the same place, for example, even if you have to double back when you hit a dead-end or go a very long way around, all roads (at least within a continent) lead to the exact same place – wherever you’re looking to go.
The only difference is the length and content of the journey.
Please also, I respectfully ask you to show respect to Krishna-Pala, Gopsivara Mahadeva, Pushpalochana, Mahayogi, Trilochana, Tamohara.
Hare Krishna! 🙂

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. It seems and i can say for sure that he is presenting the revised and enlarged version of the gita.

I have a question about chanting. We see chanting in various religions across the globe, from Christianity to Islam to Sikhism to Buddhism, etc. Everyone in these religions has the possibility of experiencing bliss. Is this because without knowing it, they are connecting to Krishna, albeit indirectly?

Hi, a little background first. i was raised catholic. my family was born again for a very short time but returned to catholicism in the 90’s. I left the catholic faith after the scandals. I was an altar boy early in my life and was aware of some of the poor behavior. I was molested as a child but not by someone of the church and it affected me for a very long time after. After I left the faith i met some great folks from both bhakti and Iskcon. i was given the Bhagavad Gita as a gift and it seemed to me to be inspired writing. then i heard of the iskcon scandals. dont get me wrong. i realize all earthly organizations have their difficulties but i guess my question is. how can i have faith if god, krishna or whoever cannot protect children in their own place of worship. I asked this of my former faith and all I ever heard was that I could not know the ways of God but that answer seemed weak to me. I know this is a difficult question and im not trying to be confrontational.

Can i know what is an ideal gurukul like? Like what type of education is there? From about subjects like Math and all to about knowledge pertaining to Krsna Consciousness,etc.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. You say these disciples were ambitious. I don’t think these disciples are really in the true sense of the word ambitious. True disciples would give their lives Serving Srila Prabhupada sincerely to their best ability. If not they are not disciples. And poisoning Srila Prabhupada is even worse than just or only being truly a disciple.
The only things these so called disciples would be ambitious would be as you have said which is to be famous(fame), fortune or profit and adoration or maybe they don’t like Prabhupada to really kill him or some other evil or impious reason.
I think these disciples were the opposite of being ambitious. these disciples wanted to go to hell
