Hare Krishna Prabhuji,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Please accept my humble obeisance
We consider killing of plants sinful unless its for the pleasure of Krishna. However in our daily life we use so many products that are laced with animal products or fat or vegetable products or fat etc like shampoo, soaps, basic cosmetic, medicines, shoes, jacket etc only to name a few. Now in this contemporary age to live a life without these things in unimaginable and going for organic pure natural products is again expensive and not within the reach of common man. Again Krishna consciousness recommends frugal living and devote more time to spiritual than material well being which automatically stunts your material prosperity and growth. Then how to finance pure and natural products for e.g Organic vegetables in the mall are three times more costly than local produce. Karma free footwear is very expensive than normal footwear. Even many times they are not available everywhere easily. Even natural medicines does not provide instant relief in case of many ailments. If my child is running temperature I immediately give Allopathic medicines not caring what is it composed of or if I have a head ache I immediately pop a pill least caring what it holds. As natural Ayurveda methods are too time consuming and that branch is not yet fully developed to treat various diseases. Even shampoos and body lotion are laced with animal products. Can we do away with washing hair? I am apologizing if I am offending in any way but where to draw the line is always dicey and contradictory. I will be greatly obliged if you can throw some light on this matter. Hare Krishna With regards Mrs. Sudha Mehta

Making the Best Use of a Bad Bargin

Hare Krsna Prabhu,

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Excellent elucidation on what should be the state of mind of the devotee. The story aptly describes our current state. Due to ignorance we have conditioned ourselves to keep asking for favours from god. But reading Srila Prbahupada’s books helped us to rectify the error in our thinking and praying process. Your reiteration of the same thoughts really helped as mind keeps fluctuating and even if it knows this is wrong it keeps seeking.

Today while chanting I tried to fix my mind to say “O Krsna please keep me engaged in your service” but in the middle of chant the mind wanders and in a mean way again thinks of problems that we confront in life and asks for favour then again I consciously apologise to god and again bring it back to serving mode. But this continuous conflict keeps goin thorughout chant. This is due to the fact that we have conditioned our mind to beg. Beg for favours, beg for happiness, beg for comfort etc

To eradicate this begging habit will take long time only Krsna can help.

Once again thanks a ton for ton for your inspiring write ups which only goes to prove that assocaition of like minded devotees is so essential in spritual progress. I only pray to Krsna to keep me in such association

Hare Krsna

The Mystery of Deity Worship

Hare Krishna Prabhu

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada

Thx for the write up on deity worship. I just need this one doubt clarified. When I am off the altar the deity worship almost stops. I dont chant I dont give personal service and then after 5 to 6 days chanting becomes slow it drops from 16 to 5 thn gradually increases. Even the bhog is stopped. I know I am wrong somewhere here. How to adopt a practice so that service is uninteruptted or even if interupted it restarts almost instantly

The Spiritual World — And how to get there

Hare Krishna

Thiyagaraj ji,

Srila Prabhupada has said in one of his books if you want to render service to the tree water the roots. Krishna himself tells in Bhagwad Gita All services and offering do unto me. Then why this doubt. Even I was praying to assortment of God’s before getting into pure Krishna Consciousness but with developing right knowledge I am slowly letting go that practices. Even if I forgot to name one god or goddess during bhoga Aarti I used to get baffled that I will have face their wrath. These are all pure mental concoctions due to upbringing. If we read Srila Prabhupada, Bhagwad Gita, do our commited rounds hear Iskcon Prabhu Lectures all our doubts will clear automatically

Hare Krishna Prabhu

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada

I have been receiving your email elaborating and tutoring to help us understand Bhagwad Gita. Thanks a ton for the divine service.

Prabhuji just one question – Ever since I have taken up Krishna Consciousness seriously much of my time goes in reading, trying to listen to discourses from Iskcon desire tree, bloging thur websites of Srila Prabhupada, reading history of spiritual masters, downloading and learning bhajans for singing while lighting lamp at altars. So are these part of devotional service or these are just preparation for devotional service. Some Iskcon devotee once said to me 16 rounds 3 bhogs and 2 aarti is not enough and not the whole and all in Krishna Consciousness. But since we are householders I feel even doin tht much consumes whole of my time and energy so that is enough.

Or is that I am convincingly using my hobby or interest in reading, blogging, singing and entertaining my self in satvik way

If only you can point the error in my way of thinking, if any, I will be obliged

Hare Krishna

Bhagavad Gita Podcast Chapter 1

Hare Krishna Prabhu

Thanks a ton for the lessons on Bhaghwad Gita As It Is. The idea of consolidating the whole think on podcast is a fabulous idea. Being a home maker most of the listening happens when cooking.

May Krishna shower his blessings on you for doing this service

Hare Krishna

    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.

  2. Vamshi says:

    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.

    • 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!
