Chanting Japa – Mantra Meditation
Do we need to chant 16 rounds at once or we can do it by parts during the day?

The Moon — Sadaputa’s is the Bona Fide ISKCON Opinion?
Hi, I have read with interest the debate on this page and would like to add a new slant, for what its worth, on the discussion.
There are very good reasons WHY there still so much interest and investment (i.e. $ trillions taxed from all of us) being poured into exploring Moon and Mars. It is not just about claiming scientific victory. Some world leaders KNOW that at the current rate of consumption, our natural resources will not last. In anticipation, they send probes and missions to seek extra-terrestrial natural resources (esp. oil and minerals) and claim early ownership and control (the symbolical meaning of planting the flag) in expectation of the opportunity and means to exploit and enrich their nations from such resources. In this, present day leaders of the world share a common mindset with ancient demoniac kings like Ravana, Hiranyaksha, Hiranyakasipu, Kamsa and Bali who have all conquered the higher planets to plunder the riches of the demigods. History does tend to repeat itself.

Compilation of Prabhupada’s Teachings on Sannyasa Asrama
In ancient Vedic times, there were no religious institutions and to be a renounced preacher was not within the reach of many.
Modern religious institutions need preachers. They therefore make titles like Pastor, Cardinal, Ayatollah and Swami accessible to many. If a person joins and demonstrates good preaching skills, the ability to enrol followers and generate income, he is awarded a title and given a position as long as his loyalty to the institution takes precedence over honesty to the individual or congregation. The most valued preachers are those who can network and exert influence among the political elite to promote the interests of the institution. The institution invests them with authority and provides them with worldwide travel, pre-booked accommodation, food and preaching arrangements. Although they are in the business of promoting religion, they do not to be saints to do their jobs.
Like their Christians and Muslim counterparts, many ISKCON members have paid a very heavy price for not understanding that a saint is not to be assessed merely by institutional title, charisma or influence.
Examplary renounced preachers are still a rare breed. Aspiring sannaysis can learn from your article and be cautious not to become corrupt by the institution they serve.
For French readers, I strongly recommend the 1956 book of Leon Tolstoi entitled “Le Pere Serge” which tells the insightful story of a catholic priest who becomes embroiled and corrupt by the church he serves.

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,
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!
