Why we criticize Mayavadis?

Dear Madhudvisa Dasa,
Hare Krsna, and , offerings, of my utmost deepest love for Srila Prabhupada.
Thank you for your emails.
It was very interesting to read what I had written in reply to you, here, a long time ago, about the topic of Mayavadi philosophers. Since then, I have continued to study Prabhupada’s books intently, every single day, for hours on end, because, to be honest, I do want to read anything else, (other than, the Bible, and the kind guidance of Lord Jesus, who attempted to teach humanity about our constitutional position relatice to God, and the higher purpose of our human existence, as recorded by his disciples :))
Of course, there are discrepancies in the cosmologies, and, I am honestly inclined to be reading Prabhupada’s books for better understanding of the Absolute Truth of reality , as it is given, by God Himself, in the Bhagavad Gita.
After reading many of Prabhupada’s books, inclusive of the Srimad Bhagavatum, I have had so many realisations that I have been changed, in myself. I no longer suffer unnecessarily, from the darkness of ignorance that permeated my whole being with chronic dis- ease. I am calm, blissful, and imperturbable, in almost every situation that may confront me. I say, almost, because, I am not totally perfected in being God conscious, yet. 🙂 But, it is my goal, to be so, always.
I understand now, after daily disciplined study and conscious practice, exactly what you are attempting to explain to all people, and , that is why I am buying Prabhupada’s books and handing them out to people who are receptive to receiving them. Every day, I exist only to serve God, and chant Hare Krsna through my days and nights to stay close to God, always. I thank you for your kind guidance for assisting in elevating the level of consciousness, to where i am today, and, in all honesty, have even found myself chanting your name, Madhudvisa Dasa. :)) It just rolls off my tongue quite effortlessly, as well as rotating in my mind quite happily of it’s own accord, like a needle stuck in the groove of a record. 🙂 it is a very pleasant groove to be stuck in 🙂
Truly, your efforts to deliver Krsna Consciousness to the fallen souls of this age of Kali Yuga, are being successful, as now, there are numerous people in my little world of interactions, who are reading Prabhupada’s books, chanting the Maha Mantra, and reading the emails I have received from you, with Transcendental instruction. So I urge you to continue enthusiastically, to remain constantly inspired in your service to Krsna, as you are helping so many fallen souls by doing so. I am testifying to that fact right here, now.
Thank you for helping to drag me out of the darkness of ignorance of my self. I have complete understanding of the higher purpose of human existence now, and am now, utterly relishing the Divine vibrations of Lord Caitanya Caritamrita’s literary incarnation for this age of Kali. Every day, there are opportunities for me to share the knowledge and insights that I have been blessedly benedicted with by the universal energies, that are God, and there is much respite given to the people I meet, who are openly grateful for my being in their little worlds, because of my committed sharing of God Consciousness , in word as well as deed. This exposure is inclusive, of Mayavadi philosophers, The Buddhists, whom I am sometimes , forced to associate with, due to social interactions. It is always a surprise to them, when I reveal that Lord Buddha was actually a prophesied incarnation of Lord Krsna, whose intent was to trick the atheists into evolving, to a higher level of God consciousness. In a similar way, I could claim quite honestly, that the self-declared Antichrist, Friedrich Nietzsche, only helped me come closer to God.
I cannot express how deeply i have fallen, in love ,with Krsna. Words are not adequate.
So all i can do is thank you again, from the depths of my heart, Madhudvisa Dasa, and chant Hare Krsna! And, offer all glory, to our beautiful spiritual teacher Srila Prabhupada, who also, resides in my big heart always.
Yours sincerely, Mandi B.

Is it not possible for Krishna to be both Personal & Impersonal; with form & formless?
As I understand God, He is omnipotent. He is beyond the dualistic framework that we attempt to comprehend Him with.
A pure devotee is not perturbed by such things apparently. The hypocrisy and dissent characteristic of this age of Kali Yuga is also present within the actions and words of pure devotees it would seem.
As the bible states, better that we remove the beam from our own eyes before picking at the splinter in the eyes of another.
Peace will not emerge from dissent. Peace will emerge from compassion and forgiving ourselves and each other, for the fools we all are.

The Importance of Sense Control in Spiritual Life

I agree whole Heartedly. I enjoyed reading Prabhupada’s book, “life comes from life” .. again, I want to read it again. I especially liked the letters between the scientist and the Krsna Conscious respondent. It is all nectarian to my ears. I live like a hermit 🙂 contemplating the Vedas every day and night. I chant Hare Krsna every day and now have introduced many other people to chanting 🙂 it is an awesome gift .. to give a receptive soul the Hare Mantra ♡ it is the best gift. I wish the whole world was Krsna Conscious. ♡

Dear Madhudvisa dasa, thank you for communicating God’s message to me regularly as you do. I really look forward to receiving the emails you send, with the explanations you give about the Bhagavad-gita. I appreciate your sharing, & am forwarding your messages to friends who are also showing much interest in Krsna consciousness, as well as, reading them to my 14 yr old son, as preliminary introduction to reading and understanding the whole story of Bhagavad-gita, as it is, elucidated so kindly for us, by our dear friend and spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada. Thank you for these supplementary explanations that do indeed, assist with deeper understanding and inspiration for experiencing the higher taste of Transcendental consciousness. I am aware of significant positive changes in my perspective which are, as a consequence, creating an experience of being that I recognise, from my readings, to be spiritual growth. The person I thought I was is no longer, and the person I am becoming wants only to be immersed in the serenity that consumes me when I am indulging in Vedic wisdom.
Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
Peace be with us all.
God is Good. So good.
♡ Mandi

Finding out About Our Past Lives?

Thank you Madhudvisa dasa, for sharing this knowledge. I have begun reading your explanations to my 14 year old son. We talk about Krsna consciousness daily, as I have been studying the Vedic literature translated by the Divine Grace of Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada, & even though he constantly admits to being a fence-sitter in regards to surrendering to the existence of God and the Absolute Truth, I feel he was born to me for the very purpose of being exposed to Krsna consciousness through me, as many others about me are being exposed. The good news is that most people like to hear what I have to tell them about Krsna consciousness, but, the Transcendental word also stands as a litmus test for the degree of spiritual understanding I have noticed…in observing some individuals fleeing, at the first sense of God coming into their awareness. God’s name came elicit the most extraordinary reactions in some individuals, ranging from pure hatred to ecstatic joy. This is the exhibited range of levels of consciousness, & I feel blessed, in my present lifetime, to consider Krsna as my eternal best friend, who I am slowly introducing to my family, friends and local community by way of words, actions, & gifts of Prabhupada’s books, for deeper understanding of where I am at….so they can comprehend, the importance of this human life. Not everybody is ready to hear this knowledge however, I have realised.

The Soul and Reincarnation. Letter to a Christian.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa. Thank you again for elucidating the Krsna conscious philosophy as you do. I learn and understand more from your articles and advice given freely, as I continue to study the vast array of literature provided for us Westerners who most certainly have a poor fund of knowledge and understanding about the eternal soul.
I am very grateful and wished again to express my gratitude, on behalf of my self, that has begun to realise, truly, the state of my very depraved and malnourished soul.
It has occurred to me that in realising the self, & coming to understand the Vedic wisdom, I also had to humbly acknowledge the state of ignorance & depravity I have been existing in, prior to receiving the blessing of God’s Grace; His undeserved kindness, by way of Vedic scripture.
With kindest regards, mandi

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu: His Life and Precepts

I am only a ‘neophyte’ devotee, but regard Prabhupada and Krsna as my gurus, because, who better to receive instruction from?
There is little knowledge of Krsna within the community I live in, though, by my presence and enthusiasm for God, now there are people caling out Hare Krsna, in greeting to me. There is genuine appreciation and interest in the knowledge I learn and share, so, even though I am not a pure devotee, God knows that I love Him and my intentions are purely to grow spiritually and help those about me to do so as well.
Even if I am not regarded by others as a devotee, I consider myself devoted to God, despite my failings, because I know God knows me and knows how much I think of Him, & is conscious of my state of consciousness.. That is all that matters to me. I do not care for the judgements of anybody but God, and God will decide Himself who is devoted enough and who is not. That is all. Hare Krsna.

    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.

    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
