The little-known secret to Advancement in Krishna Consciousness

Now that our spiritual master Prabupadha has disappeared we do not know whom to surrender to. If we offer our respectful obeisances to Prabupadha; Lord Chaitenya; and Krishna – for example; like when we prepare prasadam – then that is beneficial whether at the time we are surrendered to a pure devotee or not. Also, Krishna can direct is from within; so that is beneficial regardless if we surrender to a pure devotee or not. If we approach reading of the Gita with a devotional attitude that also is beneficial. So to whom shall we surrender that has not disappeared?

Making the Best Use of a Bad Bargin

My dear Madhudvisa dasa, Since I have accepted your answer and realized 16 rounds per day each and every day with seldom exceptions, I have become much more peaceful. I don’t yet keep fully the four regulative principles on account of illicit sexual activity; but feel that chanting is an empowerment to help with that. Would you kindly enlighten me concerning the relationship between Krisna and Jesus Christ. Jesus said, no man comes to the Father but by me and I cannot understand how that fits with Krisna who is eventually accessible to anyone who thinks of him with constant devotion and worships him with love. To those, he gives the understanding by which they can come to him – not necessarily through Jesus Christ. How did our spiritual Master Prabhupada answer this when he came to a Christian country in the first place? I am beginning to believe that Jesus is an empowered incarnation of Krishna and elevates sinners to the threshold of devotional service. From that point Hare Krishna mantra takes over to flesh out the devotional service. Am I correct? Please teach me about what our dear Master taught on this point as I believe Prabhupadha must have had all this understood, of course, before ever coming here to deliver the Western countries.

I respectfully have a question and with a submissive attitude, I really need to know something. I have a desire to set up some speakers and play the Hare Krishna chant that I heard on You-Tube and like a lot; and have Prabhupada’s articles and books to distribute; and sometimes turn off the music and chant myself; and try to engage passerby’s in responsive chanting; and under the influence of the “higher taste” interject the chanting with spoken little messages, like ” in this age of quarrel, it is recommended to chant the holy names of God” then return to chanting and then interject another quote, like “Chant Hare Krishna and be Happy. I want to engage this kind of loving service to Krishna as a way of life in my upcoming retirement. Will Prabhupada be pleased?

I agree that pure devotional service to Krishna is very rare; more along the lines of being an ideal rather than something realized in this life; something to aspire towards. Chant and be Happy. At first, you may not be able to do 16 rounds per day – but chant as much as you can and read the Bagavad Gita and books by Sri Prabhupada. Learn to prepare Prasadam in your home. Dedicate everything to Krishna. Think of Krishna constantly. To me, knowledge of this way of life is a spectacular, precious gift. We could preach this message to those that have arrived at the heaven of Jesus Christ and set them upon the path back to Godhead; so great is this message.

Krsna, the Reservoir of Pleasure

How do I know whether I am ready to take the step of initiation? How do I do that?
Can I do that and still expect to stay in the same occupation and lifestyle as a householder? Or do I have to be completely unattached so as to be ready for any kind of change in lifestyle or location? I feel ready to continue on in this way.

    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!

      Madhudvisa dasa
