The International Society for Krishna Consciousness

hare krishna madhudvisa dasa
all glories to srila prabhupada and sri sri radha-Krishna
I have a hard time explaining to people what our movment is.
they ask me what religion are you from? I have a hard time responding since this isnt hinduism nor a religion so how can I explain it?
and also I have a book distribution box but I have no idea how to go out and distribute i know im supposed to go out and prabhupada and Krishna will guide me but my mind always puts me in distres and starts thinking what do I say to a stranger? how do I take rejection? we live in a godless society , as soon I say “god” theyll surely walk away. I dont know what statement to open with or what to say. because I would have to walk around and approach people to distribute. I cant find any devotees in my area so im alone physically. I know krishna prabhupada will be there with me but im just scared of confrontation.

Bhagavad-Gita As It Is Original 1972 Edition Free PDF Download

Dear sir or madam: I have been reading the bhagavita off and on for 20yrs. I have visited the temple of Boston and Las Vegas! I have been reading the 1972 hard cover version Bhagavita as it is! I was a seeker for years. I was originally initiated in the sect of Guru Nanik as a vegetarian for 20yrs. I was also initiated by Shiva Baliyogi. I was confused for years. Things are coming to light! You stopped reaching out to me, why? I also had read the Ramayana book including the Air Chaitanya Caritamrta hard cover 1975 version.

A Regulated Life is Very Important

hare krishna prabhu.
all glories to srila prabhupada.
im having a bit of trouble controlling sexual urges.
they arise out of mind even when absorbed in krishna.
I feel like thats the biggest sin of all because even when im chanting my mind drifts away and thinks about sex. I feel so degraded and embarrassed at myself from these thoughts that arise especially while im engaged in devotional service.
im tired of it and I want to control these urges. I want my mind to only think of krishna and nothing else. where I work females come in all the time with skimpy outfits so its hard to avoid females.
please swamiji, any advice?
your servant, marvin.

my respectful obiesances unto you madhudvisa dasa. your a really great person. you help everybody whos lost and fallen. I just wanted to acknowledge that. im really really lost right now.well I surrendered completely in september. since then ive purchased japa beads. and I chant everyday somedays 16 rounds some maybe 8 or more but I always try for 16. my parents or family do not understand this movement at all (im of hispanic descent) so its hard to explain to them. but they just dont get me they cal me crazy and tell me im to sunk into these books. and ive realized that working at McDonalds is not helping me at all as I sell meat products to people all day it just brings me down to even go to work. I want to quit but I know my parents dont want me to because they say money is very important. but they dont understand im following my spiritual life and working at such a place is degrading. all they see is the fruititve results of my work. but I just dont know what to do. should I quit my job and just ignore my parents? Im going to purchase the book distribution box and distribute people and as I know I must serve his divine grace and krishna. I also wanted to live In the iskcon temple in los angeles. but I see know that iskcon isnt truly following srila prabhupadas teachings. and if I quit my job my parents are going to think that I want them to maintain me. all I want in my life is to serve srila prabhupada and krishna nothing more. im only 19 and dont have many responsibilities I understand my constitutional position to serve both my spiritual master and krishna. I dont want to work at a job and earn money. I just want to serve. im wiling to give up everything in my life but I just dont know where to go. I accepted srila prabhupada as my spiritual master. ive renunciated all material objects all I do all day is read about krishna or listen to srila prabhpada lectures on youtube or read the bhagavad gita. when im not im, working at the wretched place called McDonalds. I just dont know what to do im so frustrated on where to turn. where to go im willing to leave my house. I want to live with devotees. where I live, in a city called santa clarita. in california its nothing but ignorance every where I turn im probably the only devotee in my city. ive been to the temple in los angeles once it was about 3 days ago and It felt great to be around other devotees. but im just so confused as of what to do. please help me. sorry for the long post.and repetativeness. im just frustrated.I appreciate your time and kind words.sincerely marvin.

Vegetarian Cooking – How to Cook Delicious Vegetarian Meals

hare krishna swamiji.
all glories to srila prabhupada.
I started my spiritual journey about 2 months ago so I still have many questions. and I would like to know how to offer correctly.
these are the steps I take when offering food. please correct me if im wrong.
I take a picture of srila prabhupada n place my food offering in front of the picture and cover the food. I then say the four prayers of srila prabhupada, his guru, lord chaiytanya and lord krishna three times each then I chant the hare krishna mantra 3 times. finally I say ” please lord krishna accept my offering”. are these correct?

Is seperate from ISKCON?

hare Krishna prabhu.
all glories to srila prabhpada.
alright well first off im in a bad situation. ive been following krishna consciousness for about 3 months. and my parents dont like it. im 19 years old and living with them iwas going to go to college but to me its a waste of time and doesnt gaurantee a job and now that im in Krisna conscious it seems very unnecassary. so my parents dont like my way of thinking since I do everything in the service of Krishna. they say im to deep into these books and dont have to think about god 24/7 and I beg to differ. I tell them were never suppose to forget god but they dont understand they are very much in the mode of ignorance. and I have a job at a fast food reastraunt that I hate so bad and I want to quit. but my parents say the money is important. main point is anything I do or want to do is looked down upon by my parents. I just dont wantto live with them anymore because I cant do anything without being criticized ive been to iskcon los angeles a couple times in the last few weeks and am really contemplating on living there only becsuse I would be able to study srila prabhupadas books more I purchased the distribution box and have individual books I bought online from srila prabhupada. and purchased the dvd and mp3 library. I have accepted srila prabhpada as my spiritual master and I dont know if iskcon would ruin the path im on.
please madhudvisa dasa I am begging for your mercy and help in my situation I dont know where to turn anymore. please please respond. I am very much grateful for your response.
your servant marvin.

Giving Up Illicit Sex-life- Taking Responsibility- The Vedic Solution

Hare krishna prabhuji. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. I offer my respectful obeisance to you. My girlfriend and I were having Illicit sex, and now she is pregnant. She is due to give birth at any moment. We both want to raise our child in Krishna conciousness. We both now follow the 4 regulatory principles. We no longer have illicit sex we have been vegetarian for 4 years, we don’t intoxicate nor gamble. We are both trying to chant minimum of 16 rounds daily. We read scriptures daily and listen to krishna bajans. We have everything prabhupada ever recorded. I’ve known krishna since 2012 due to Prabhupadas kind mercy, krishna led me to him. My girlfriend and I are not married. We plan to get married in a couple years. We are both going to devote the rest of our lifes in the service of prabhupada and krishna. My question is are we living in sin? Will our child suffer due to our actions? Since he was conceived from illicit sex will there be consequences? I am going to raise our child in krishna conciousness and will not settle for less. We are also naming our child Krishna as a middle name.

Please kindly respond prabhu. Thank you for being such a great, and sincere devotee to Prabhupada. 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.

    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
