Krsna Book Dictation Tapes — New High-Quality Version

Orlando you are very fortunate to get the actual pre-1977 Srila Prabhupada Bhagavatam set from KrishnaStore.com which now is out of print and unavailable. So you are so very fortunate.

The Bhagavatam set you have IS PRABHUPADA’s PRE-1977 Bhagavatam. It is photographically produced from the original pre-1977 books.

So please just read it and become a pure devotee of Krishna.

This is just maya trying to trick you into not reading Srila Prabhuapda’s books.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

How to Accelerate Humanities Spiritual Evolution

You should only take Krishna prasadam, food cooked by devotees and offered with love to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna. Particularly you should not take grains cooked by non-devotees like bread. That is very bad. But everything prepared by non-devotees is very bad. So you should not take anything except Krishna Prasadam. Of course in your current situation that may be difficult and you have to eat something but you have to know if you are eating anything at all that is not Krishna prasadam you are eating sin only and that will have a very bad effect on your consciousness and will make it very, very hard for you to become Krishna consciousness. So in reality you need to make some arrangement so you can cook for Srila Prabhupada and Krishna yourself…

Chant Hare Krishna and pray to Krishna. Krishna is sarva karana karanam, the cause of all causes. So worshiping Krishna and praying to Krishna includes worshiping all the demigods because they are all part and parcel of Krishna.

Hare Krishna Amena

It is a very nice question, thank you very much.

There is more than one type of liberation. Liberation does not necessarily mean going back home, Back to Godhead. Only the bhaktas, the devotees can go back home, back to Godhead.

Liberation just means being free from the bondage of the material world. It means being on the spiritual platform, but the spiritual platform can also mean impersonal liberation. That is what the impersonalists aspire for. It is also what Krishna’s enemies achieve when they are killed by Krishna. This impersonal liberation means the spirit soul enters into the impersonal brahmajoti, the shining effulgence that surrounds Krishna, and he becomes one of those tiny shining particles that make up the brahmajoti. So this is liberation in the sense that one is free from the problems of the material world and he is situated on the transcendental platform. But it is impersonal. He has no form manifest in the brahmajoti and has no ability to do anything, he does not have any activities and he can not associate with anyone else. So although, in that position, he is liberated, and he is free from all the suffering in the material world and he is enjoying a type of bliss called brahmananada, that bliss is more-or-less just an absence of suffering. He has no activities at all there and ultimately this is not a satisfying position because the spirit soul is eternally active and enjoys through relationships with other spirit souls. So in this impersonal liberation there are no activities and there is no chance for any association with other spirit souls. So after some time he will be very dissatisfied in such a liberated condition and will again fall back down to the material world so he can have some activities and have some association with other living entities.

So this impersonal liberation is not perminant because it is not satisfying. There are three aspects to liberation: sat, cit and ananda, so in this impersonal liberation he can experience the sat and cit, eternality and knowledge, aspects, but not the ananda aspect. So it is not completely satisfying.

So this sort of impersonal liberation Krishna awards easily, as I said He even awards this impersonal liberation to the demons that He kills. But as you say Krishna does not award devotional service very easily because Krishna is purchased by his devotees. He can not be purchased in any other way.

MS-DOS Prabhupada Vedabase / Folio Views

Hare Krishna Gopinatha Acharya Prabhu

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Very nice to hear from you Prabhu after all these years. I hope you are well and that everything is developing nicely for you, I suppose at New Govardhana.

I have extended the article at https://krishna.org/ms-dos-prabhupada-vedabase-folio-views/ to hopefully include all the information you are looking for in hopefully an easy-to-understand way.

Basically the space means AND, the / character OR and the quotation marks or inverted commas as you call them are used for enclosing terms, groups of words that you are searching for that you want to be in the order that you type them.

For example if you type Hare Krishna into the search that will find any paragraph that contains both the words ‘hare’ and ‘krishna’. They can be in any order and do not have to be together. But if you type in “Hare Krishna” that will only find the paragraphs that have the term “Hare Krishna”, the words have to be together and have to be in the order that you type them in.

You can use the brackets and the OR (/) operator to make more complex searches. There is also not (^). So you have AND (space) OR (/) and NOT (^).

Say you want to find everything that has Rama and Sita but not Hanuman. You would type:

rama sita ^hanuman

So with this query you will find the 95 paragraphs where Prabhupada mentions Sita and Rama but not Hanuman.

But if you want to find the paragraphs where Prabhupada mentions Hanuman but not Sita and Rama you would type:

hanuman ^sita ^rama

There is also OR (/). For getting all the paragraphs with hare and krsna or krishna in them you type:

hare krsna / krishna

I am not sure if DOS Folio recognizes the brackets or not. Windows Folio does but I don’t think DOS Folio does. I am not completely sure about that and it is late and I have to take rest now…

Anyhow if you experiment with it and read the help [by pressing F1] you will be able to make surprisingly powerful searches in the DOS Folio…

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

The Hare Krishna People — First Film about the Hare Krishna’s

You will be always confused until you surrender to Srila Prabhupada and actually follow the process of Saddhana Bhakti that he is teaching us. That starts with surrendering to Srila Prabhupada and agreeing to live our lives in accordance to his orders. Then of course we have to surrender to the very basic things. We have to follow the four regulative principles: no illicit sex [sex is only for having children in marriage], no intoxication, no meat eating and no gambling], we have to chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna maha mantra daily, and we have to read Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours daily. Without following these things at least we will not be in Krishna consciousness and spiritual life for us will be just imagination.

But if we do actually surrender to Srila Prabhupada and accept his orders and live our lives accordingly, starting with the ones I have mentioned about but not limited to them, then we will reawaken the original Krishna consciousness that is there already within our hearts and Krishna from within our hearts and Srila Prabhupada from his books will guide us and we will never be confused..

It is a quality of the mode of goodness that one can see things as they are, however if we are not in the mode of goodness, if we are in the modes of passion and ignorance, then it is impossible for us to see things as they are. Therefore if we want to see things as they are we have to elevate ourselves to the mode of goodness and to become Krishna consciousness we have to transcend even the mode of goodness.

So it is not that you think something, your opinion, and I think something, my opinion. No. We both have to surrender to Srila Prabhupada and hear the transcendental knowledge coming from his lotus mouth and just accept it. It is not exactly ‘thinking’ that enables one to become Krishna consciousness. It is surrender, submissive hearing and service…

You can evaluate ISKCON by seeing how closely they are following the instructions of Srila Prabhupada. And unfortunately they have in so many ways completely rejected the orders of Srila Prabhupada. They do not at all care about what Prabhupada orders, they think they are more intelligent and that they know better than Prabhupada and this is the problem.

So ISKCON has now disconnected themselves from the disciplic succession and it is, like the Gaudiya Matha, asara, useless.

Solar Eclipses are not Caused by the Moon

You have to do some research Sasa. Not just speak nonsense like this.

What you are proposing, firing a laser at the moon [a quarter of a million miles away] and expecting to get it reflected back to you [another quarter of a million miles] is not possible.

I know this from so much research. It is not like you say at all. If you get a laser and point it at the moon you will not be able to detect any ‘return’ as they call it, or reflection.

There is a place in Texas that I spent some nights with the deer and pig hunting ‘old boys’ that run it. It is at an observatory but they are in a trailer with a 12″ telescope which has a big green laser firing through it and it is very impressive. You see the big green laser firing up into the sky in pulses every few seconds. And in the same telescope they have a detector.

What they are trying to prove is that the NASA missions put mirrors on the moon. According to them if you fire a laser at the moon you will not get a reflection. But if you fire a laser at one of the 12″ x 12″ reflectors put on the moon by our Apollo astronauts then you will get a reflection.

So anyhow they disprove your theory. They point a huge laser at the moon and fire it and don’t get any reflection back except if they point it at very specific positions. And even those positions are not reliable. They work sometimes but they can go for months firing their laser at these locations and get no ‘returns’ whatsoever.

I could write thousands of pages about the faultiness of this experiment but who would care about that? Anyhow they prove your theory to be false. If you point a laser at the moon and fire it and even with the best equipment, telescopes, detectors, etc, you can not detect any reflection coming back.

They try to prove there are mirrors on the moon and they get reflections back from them because the project is paid for by NASA to prove this and if they do not prove this they will get their funding cut.

But the whole experiment is completely rigged. Anyhow they prove it conclusively that if you fire a laser at the moon you can’t get a reflection back. Except they say for the 3 or 4 places where there are supposed to be mirrors on the moon.

But honestly the laser beam spreads out, by the time it gets to the moon it is hundreds of miles across at least. Just imagine what a tiny amount of light from that laser actually falls on the 12″ x 12″ mirror… And then the tiny reflection from the mirror has spread out to cover over 100 miles by the time it gets back to earth. And your telescope is only 12″ in diameter… Realistically considering this and considering the light has to go through the earth’s atmosphere twice how much light are you really going to get reflected from the moon and entering your telescope and picked up on the detector.

And the real question is how are you going to tell if it is actually your light. The light you sent out and not some other light? The light is all the same… And even if it is your light how are you going to know it is not from one of the other pulses of the laser reflected from somewhere else between the earth and the moon?

They don’t just fire one pulse. The laser is constantly pulsing and the laser light is bouncing around everywhere. So there is no way for you to know where your light is actually coming from.

And this experiment does not work anyhow. If they keep the detecter open then they are just getting the light coming in all the time. So they cheat. They already know the exact distance to the moon so after they have sent a pulse at the exact moment when they know they should be getting a return from the moon they open the detector for a tiny microsecond and if there happens to be some light there at that exact moment they assume it is a ‘return’ from the mirror on the moon…

So they are cheating. If they could fire a laser and just wait and see a real return about 6 seconds or whatever later then that would be something. But this does not work. They can not do it.

So you have just believed a whole lot of nonsense and you don’t think things through. If you thought things through you would be able to understand how stupid what you are suggesting is. You are going to shine your little torch at the moon, 1/4 of a million miles away, by their calculation, and you are going to see your little torch reflected on the moon…

Dream away.

Evolution from Scientist to Monkey

Hare Krishna Sandhya

It does not matter if you agree or disagree. We have to hear it from the acharyas, the authorities, the ones who know. And they tell us that our purpose is only to render service to Krishna.

This idea that “Krishna created us” is a materialistic idea. Of course Krishna is the cause of all causes so He is the cause of us also. So in this sense the idea that Krishna creates us comes. But actually we and Krishna are of the same eternal spiritual quality. As Krishna is unborn and beginningless and endless, so are we.

As you say we are all the parts of God, but what you may not realized is the purpose of the parts of God is to serve God, to give enjoyment to God. It is like in our body we have many parts. Like the hands for instance are meant to serve the whole body. The hands can not enjoy by themselves. If they hands are holding a nice sweet the hands can not enjoy it themselves, they have to put it in the mouth and then when it goes to the stomach the stomach will digest it and the energy will be spread out all over the body and in that way the the hands will enjoy the sweet. So, like that, we are all parts and parcels of Krishna, and, like the hands, we have no ability to enjoy separately from Krishna. When we serve Krishna, if we can satisfy Krishna, then that satisfaction of Krishna will also make us satisfied because we are all parts and parcels of Krishna.

So it is not that because we are parts of god the we are god. No. Because we are parts of God it is our purpose and our duty to serve God. God is the master and we are His servants. We are meant to be enjoyed by God. God is the enjoyer and we are the enjoyed.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

I have given you the suggestion before. The best thing is to get out of bed early in the mornings, by 4:00 AM, and chant Hare Krishna and read Srila Prabhupada’s books in the quiet morning hours. During this time nothing will disturb your chanting. Of course you can keep on chanting throughout the day when you get the time but if you have done your main chanting in the early morning hours that will put you in good consciousness for the whole day.

Everything is in Srila Prabhupada’s Books!

Hare Krishna Dushyant

The sex desire can only be controlled by becoming Krishna conscious.

There is no other way to control it.

And to how to become Krishna conscious, that is a very large subject matter which Srila Prabhupada has very perfectly explained in more than 80 books. So if you want to control your sex life you have to become Krishna conscious and if you want to understand how to become Krishna conscious you have to read Srila Prabhupada’s books.

You can purchase them at http://www.krishnastore.com, you can read them online at http://www.prabhupadabooks.com and you can download the free pdf files from:

https://krishna.org/category/free-pdf-downloads/

It requires a serious commitment to become Krishna conscious and that starts with chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra at least 16 rounds a day on japa beads, strictly following the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day.

So if we want to actually control our sex desires then we have to strictly follow these things and all the other things Srila Prabhupada instructs us to do as we read his books.

So it is not a ‘simple fix’, that I can write a one paragraph reply to your comment that will solve your problem. However I have given you the solution here, it is up to you now to either accept it and be happy or reject it and suffer.

Hare Krishna

One round means chanting the entire Hare Krishna mantra 108 times. So that is chanting: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare 108 times.

Sixteen rounds is doing this sixteen times. So sixteen rounds is chanting the entire Hare Krishna mantra 108 x 16 = 1728 times. Sometimes devotees speak of chanting a certain number of names of Krishna, so there are 16 words, or names in the Hare Krishna mantra so it is 1728 x 16 = 27,648 names. Some devotees, at least in the Caitanya-caritamrta, were chanting 100,000 names or even 300,000 names (Haridas Thakura). So really 27,648 names is not very much.

In the beginning it will take a bit longer but once you are practiced it takes between 2-3 hours typically. And 2-3 hours out of 24 hours is very little really.

Hare Krishna Sandhya

It is simple. You have to follow the four regulative principles: No illicit sex, No meat eating, No gambling and No intoxication and you have to chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day and you have to read Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day.

As far as sleeping it is better to take rest early and get up early in the mornings. We need to be out of bed before the Brahma-muhurta which is the most auspicious time of the day and which is very good for chanting Hare Krishna. And that starts 1.5 hours before sunrise. So in ISKCON Srila Prabhupada standardized this and had Mangal-aroti at 4:30 AM. So it is good to get out of bed before 4:00 AM and have Mangal-aroti at 4:30 AM. Then you have all those morning hours for chanting Hare Krishna and reading Prabhupada’s books.

So we can not expect to make very significiant advancement in Krishna consciousness if we are still eating meat and still eating food with onion and garlic in it [that means it is not prasadam]. If we really want to advance we have to adjust things in our lives so we only accept Krishna prasadam, nothing else.

You know living a Krishna conscious life is practically opposite to living a materialistic life so if we are to actually make progress we have to make adjustments in our lives.

Of course it may not be possible to do everything all at once instantly, but you have to make a plan with the goal of being able to chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra daily, strictly follow the four regulative principles, and read Srila Prabhupada’s books daily. These are the main thing, of course there are many other things that we have to do and many things that we can not do, but if you just concentrate on the four regulative principles, chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books then you will find that automatically all other things will come.

Living Alone in a Secluded Place?

You can control your mind by becoming Krishna conscious. The process to become Krishna conscious Srila Prabhupada has explained it very nicely in his books. So we have to read Prabhupada’s books and learn how to become Krishna conscious and then we will be able to control our mind and everything. You say you can’t concentrate in another post but that concentration is made possible by chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra a day. It is a process. We are very disturbed in the beginning and we are not going to become pure devotees instantly. It is a process and it takes time. But the process works so if you follow these things, chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra daily, reading Srila Prabhupada’s books, following the four regulative principles, etc, your mind will become peaceful and you will be able to concentrate. In the meantime you just have to force yourself to chant Hare Krishna and read Prabhupada’s books even if your mind is disturbed. This is called tapasya. Tapasya is agreeing to undergo voluntary suffering for the purpose of making spiritual advancement. We have to do this. it is not always easy to become Krishna conscious. But we have to be prepared to undergo the tapasya…

The Horrible Indian Caste System

You are not going to get the lotus feet of Krishna by living a normal life. Living a ‘normal life’ means living in such a way that you are trying to satisfy your own senses or some extended concept of sense gratification like working for the family or the country, etc. The only way you can get the lotus feet of Krishna is by getting the lotus feet of a pure devotee of Krishna. Krishna is not available directly. You have to approach Krishna via His pure devotees. So first you have to find a bona fide spiritual master, surrender to him, serve him and follow his instructions. He can instruct you in such a way that if you follow his instructions you can get the lotus feet of Krishna. This is the way. There is no other way. And you can not get the lotus feet of Krishna by living a normal life. You have to live your life for Krishna if you want to get Krishna. And that is not a ‘normal life’ even though externally a devotee may do all the same things that a person leading a ‘normal life’ does.

The Ten Offenses in Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

As far as your other question preaching means making an uninterested person interested in Krishna. So if you can talk to someone in such a way that you can present the ideas of Krishna consciousness philosophy in an interesting way then they will become curious, they will want to find out more, so in this way you have made an uninterested person interested and then you can talk about Krishna as long as they are at least a little bit interested in hearing. We have to create the interest. It is just that we should not try to force someone who is actually against Krishna consciousness to try and make them become Krishna conscious. It has to be voluntary. The person we are speaking to about Krishna has to be at least a little interested in hearing what we are saying. But it is not that they have to be very interested in Krishna, just not that they are totally against Krishna and are getting angry as we talk to them about Krishna. That is no good. But if they are just a little bit interested in hearing what we have to say then we can speak to them about Krishna….

Why not quit meat eating completely? It is going to make it very difficult for you to advance in Krishna conscionsess. If it has come to almost nill then just make it nill. That is what you have to do if you want to become Krishna conscious and it is not difficult.

We have to learn to ignore our own cravings and just do things for the pleasure of Krishna. If we don’t learn this then we can not become Krishna consciousness so forcing ourselves to follow the regulative principles gives us this self-control and determination.

So we just have to do it, follow the regulative principles, even if we have cravings to break the regulative principles. The more we become Krishna conscious the more the cravings will go away.

But you know it is like an itch. You feel like scratching it but scratching it just makes it worse. If you leave it alone it will go away quickly, but if you scratch it it will become infected and be a great problem. So we just have to ignore our cravings and get on with our service to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna.

First you should read Srila Prabhupada’s books. All these simple questions will then immediately be answered for you. You don’t need diksha to begin in Krishna consciousness. Chanting one round means chanting the whole Hare Krishna mantra 108 times. That is why there are 108 beads on a set of japa beads… Yes. A person with worldly responsibilities can most certainly take to Krishna consciousness.

First thing is you should read Prabhupada’s books. You can purchase them from http://www.KrishnaStore.com or read them online at http://www.PrabhupadaBooks.com

The Importance of Having a Qualified Guru

Guru is not to be treated as mother. Guru is sakshad-hari. The disciple must treat the guru as Krishna directly. He is your master and you are his servant.

Disciple is called sisya, servant. You are the servant of your guru and he is your master. This is the guru-disciple relationship.

Of course if the person you have accepted as guru is not actually saksad-hari, directly Krishna, then you have chosen a bogus guru and it is useless. Better to give up such bogus gurus and find a bona fide guru like His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Please check out www.BookChanges.com

Yes Prabhu, it is best just to read Srila Prabhupada’s original books, not with this mood of fault-finding, trying to spot ‘errors’, but rather to just submissively hear the transcendental message as it is purely passed from Krishna through the disciplic succession to Srila Prabhupada and then from Srila Prabhupada to us. This process works perfectly with Srila Prabhupada’s original books. There may be a few apparent discrepancies but these in no way whatsoever impede the flow of the transcendental knowledge.

Prabhupada ordered so strongly that his books not be changed. Even if they changes appeared to be improvements he would not allow them as attested by Ramesvara Prabhu.

Yes. The work being done by Ajit Krishna Prabhu at http://arsaprayoga.wordpress.com/ is very, very good.

Jayadviata refuses to respond to any of his letters because he can not answer any of the points that Ajit Krishna is asking him.

I do not think there are 100 actual typographical errors in Srila Prabhupada’s original Bhagavad-gita As It Is. The are a few only. I think not more than a dozen at the most. If you just read the book you can see for yourself of course.

There is no list as far as I know. Perhaps in the future the actual typographical errors should be identified. But for the time being we do not have anyone that the devotees would trust to fix them…

Finding out About Our Past Lives?

Hare Krishna Uma

The karma of Krishna’s devotees is changed by Krishna. So it does not matter for devotees, Krishna takes special care of his devotee.

Actually devotees are joyful, that is the nature of devotees. If we are not joyful we are not very much advanced in Krishna consciousness. This joyfulness is one of the symptoms of a devotee.

So as we advance more we will become joyful. Devotees are transcendental to karma. They love Krishna, they do not serve Krishna for any return, they serve Him out of love. They do not want anything from Krishna, they just want to please Krishna.

Yes Prabhu, this guy on the video is in maya and has no idea at all what happiness is.

Actually our constitutional position is to serve, not to enjoy. So all our attempts to try to enjoy will be ultimately frustrated and will not bring us happiness in the long run. Our nature is to serve. And if we try an serve someone in the material world they will exploit our surrender and service and try and use our service for their happiness… So both the materialistic master and the materialistic servant will not end up happy.

This idea behind the guy in the video that if you get what you want you will be happy is the materialistic illusion. Because we ‘want’ materialistic things that will satisfy our senses but we do not realize that we are not this body and not the materialistic senses. And the nature of the materialistic senses is they can never be satisfied. You can supply them with the objects they crave for but that will not satisfy them. They always want more. So satisfaction and happiness is not achievable through sense gratification…

Nor is is possible through material service.

We are all nitya krsna dasa, we are eternally servants of Krishna. So the only way we can experience true happiness is to engaged in the service of Krishna and Krishna’s pure devotees. When, as a result of our service, Krishna becomes happy then the devotee becomes happy. Happiness is not a direct thing. We become happy by serving Krishna’s pure devotee and when he is happy with our service then we enjoy real transcendental bliss and this spiritual happiness is unlimited and ever-increasing and once we taste a little of this real transcendental happiness we will no longer have any interest in the so-called happiness of the material world.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    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.

    thankyou!
    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!
