Very Difficult times for new Bhaktas…

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I realize that i seem to sort of or really write a email that does not seem pleasing maybe. And it seems in my head that you will not take me to not be serious and following what you say. If i have offended you in writing this email i am sorry. I am at most a sentimentalist. I felt writing out of desperation being in the position i am in life. And i take full responsibility. I have not been serious and never seriously focused on stopping materialistic activities and not listening and being very willing to follow the process. I should focus on surrendering to Srila Prabhupada seriously by chanting 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra, 4 regulative principles and 1-2 hours of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books. And i sort of for now i agreed to my mother in the situation i mentioned. But you are right that i need to follow the process to ultimately solve my problems including the one about treating the books i have to the best and other problems.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Kali yuga is full of hypocrisy and quarrel. But it is not surprising because quarrel and hypocrisy is seen all over the world in situations that i am not involved in. But it is very difficult to deal with people full of hypocrisy or even quarrel because they are not helpful. I mean look for example Maharaja Parikshit. In the ultimate sense although all this happened to Mahraja Parikshit so that Srimad- Bhagavatam can be spoken or introduced(hope i am right about introduced. if not correct me). And he was thirsty and went to the brahmana to get water. Although the brahmana was meditating but he put a snake on him because he could not tolerate his thirst.

How can a person like me tolerate and not feel bad about people not helping me on purpose like giving me water because i am thirsty and things along this line. It is pretty difficult to get over it. i exactly feel like maharaja parikshit in which he put a dead snake over brahmana to scare him.

Prabhuji when i am suffering and people don’t provide the help i need that i ask them for and instead get suffering from them that does not makes me feel at all compassionate towards the other person at all. I feel very angry towards that person and want him to suffer. People like that are too cruel to tolerate.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I have two inquiries to put to you. On back to ” Vedic Culture Meens Feeding Unexpected Guests” i was reading that “In every culture, there’s an etiquette for receiving guests, but probably nowhere was this etiquette more developed than in the Vedic culture that flourished in India fifty centuries ago.” And it also says that if an enemy comes to your home you should receive him so well that he does not apprehend any danger. And in Srimad Bhagavatam it mentions that one should receive even an uninvited guest.

Is this Vedic injunction of welcoming a guest even uninvited(including stranger), while Vedic is also a Krsna Conscious injunction or still a wordly wisdom. Are any vedic injunctions not Krsna Conscious in nature?

And in today’s world i hardly have seen hospitality(in this case to a uninvited guest). Is it because what you said that ” This material world is full of suffering and the people here are all more-or-less demons and ultimately they are only interested in their own personal sense gratification. They may go on with some pretense of love and friendship but this is only because they think they will get some personal benefit from it. It is all selfishness.”

And what to do about people who are lying? I sense a lot of times that people are lying and can see how they are lying. People just lie because they don’t want to help you because you are a total stranger or just not help because people are selfish or any other reason but not tell that directly to make me feel bad.

People in today’s times are full of hypocrisy. They lie to you pretending they mean good but they themselves are not doing any good.

I hope prabhuji that you will answer this because these inquiries i feel are very important. Otherwise would not waste your time writing a comment. I hope i am not asking a “non-sense” question.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji.

In one article you said this.

“So the short answer is that yes we may fall down many times but we can not get into the mood that it is OK to fall down and Krishna will forgive me. If we get into that mood Krishna will not forgive us. That will be sinning on the strength of the holy name, one of the ten offenses. But if every time you sincerely regret your falldown and really genuienly pray to Krishna and Prabhupada and apologize for your nonsense and pray that they please give you strength so you do not falldown again… The thing is we can not give up the quest for Krishna consciousness. It is the only valuable thing that we can get out of this human form of life. It is the only thing that is worth working for. So even if we fail thousands of times we have to keep trying for Krishna consciousness, because there is nothing else worthwhile…”

Prabhuji i have gotten into this mood that it is okay to fall down and krishna will forgive me in the past. And now i feel bad i had gotten into this mood. So what can i do. Is there any way for people who get into this mood to rectify it. And plus can i think it is okay to fall down and krishna will forgive me if i sincerely regret it and pray to Srila prabhupada and krishna not do it again as you you said sometimes maya is victorious and sometimes we are victorious by not being tempted by maya and so forth.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I have a questions/doubts regarding guilt. What is guilt. I heard from some people that they don’t feel guilty when they do something wrong or immoral in anger or out enmity to hurt someone. Are they fooling others or fooling themselves that they don’t feel guilt. Does guilt depend on whether he wants to feel it or admit he is feeling.

And plus if they are fooling me or others when they say to me or othersthat they don’t feel bad or guilty of hurting other even though they are hiding that they are feeling guilty.

like if you lie to others you are lying to yourself. Right?

Hare Krsna prabhuji. As of today after really long time i started to chant on mala 1 round It took me like 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete the round with thoughts in my mind and in between talking in the house and Television watching. Can you give me a solution if i take this much time to chant 1 round then how can i chant 16 rounds as of now. i want to. Bur i don’t feel like i would be able to even if i spend 24 hours because i will be tired after chanting 1 round so doing second round itself might take more time than the first.

In the past i have at any random time chanted maybe 1-3 rounds maybe with some mistakes. But this is one with no mistake like i know that i have to start from big bead and really prounced the starting mantra(prabupada mantra) and pancva tatava properly by seeing the written thing instead of the memorized one i got accostomed to in the past.

And what to do of my parents watching Televsion and other disturbances prabhuji.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa. My inquiry is about Varnasrama dharma and occupation i should do. In the article “The Horrible Indian Caste System” you said

“Of course in Kali-yuga everyone is working in the wrong occupations and that has created havoc everywhere so this idea of Varnasrama is a bit irrelevant right now.
The main thing it to become a pure devotee of Krishna and that transcends the Varnasrama system.”

And in the article “The Indian Caste System” you said

“It is not so important to get overly concerned about your position in the varnasrama society as currently the system in the society is so mixed up and the time is so unfavorable that it is very difficult to revive this original Vedic system of varnasrama. The process for this age is sankirtan, chanting the Hare Krishna mantra. So…”

So are you saying that being Krsna Consciousness is more important than varnasrama dharma or finding what occupation in the varnasrama dharma will suit whether it is brahmana, kstriya, vaisya, or sudra.

So if i do any type of occupation or job it is good as long as i am doing it for Krsna Consciousness.

And if i am aspiring to be a devotee and doing a occupation or job and use it towards being krsna consciousness then it is above varnasrama dharma because Krsna consciousness is above Varnasrama Dharma right?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji.

I have one simple question when you said on this side shelter. By that you mean surrender. And surrender to Srila Prabhupada is 1. Chanting 16 rounds. 2. follow the four regulative principles. 3. Read all of Srila Prabhupada’s books(1-2 hours daily or everyday).4◾Engaging in devotional service as you are instructed by Srila Prabhupada in his books( including following srila prabhupada’s instructions as I read the books right?)

This is all I want to know which is how to surrender to Srila Prabhupada .

Plain Living and High Thinking

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Is there anything in wanting to live this lifestyle. i am not saying you are wrong. You are right. But prabhuji i like the idea of Plain living and High thinking. Prabhuji is living a simple life against Krsna Consciousness? And besides i want to become Krsna conscious no matter what situation i am in.

Prabhuji what is my position in life? i don\’t know if i am brahmana, kstriya, vaisya or sudra. I don\’t know my pychophysical nature. And you said it is broken but still does not mean i don\’t have pychophysical nature which resembles one of these four classes.

Do you remember one of your comments. College is slaughterhouse. Again you said the right thing about Krsna Consciousness. And besides i have no position in terms of what i want to do to living and when i read this along with your college is slaughterhouse i for once knew what i can do. So what now? Sorry i am being very argumentative. Being argumentative is in my nature. Although what you said is 100% true. The comment below is what i was talking about.

You have to first chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra daily and strictly follow the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and read Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day. Only when you surrender to these things will your Krishna consciousness start. If you have only ever chanted 2 to 4 rounds then you are not serious. And Krishna consciousness is not so easy that people who are not serious about getting it can get it. So you have to become serious, you have to surrender to the process, and then you have a chance of becoming Krishna consciousness. If you do not surrender and follow the process you can not become Krishna conscious.

And there is no way that studying from the demons is a service to Krishna. Hearing from the demons will only reinforce your material bodily concept of life and immerse you more and more in maya. Srila Prabhupada called these colleges and universities slaughterhouses because they take young people, who could be trained up in spiritual life, but they slaughter them instead by filling their minds with the demonic materialistic bodily concept of life. In this way their hopes for spiritual advancement in life are totally destroyed.

Of course you may have to do it to get some job to support your family in the future. But this is not service to Krishna. Hearing from the demons in a college or university. That is maya, that is not Krishna consciousness.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

And what is wrong with it.

    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!
