There is more than the Material Energy…

Hi sorry to interrupt thread .. you always advice 16 rounds from the get go ,I was wondering why you emphasise 16 rounds straight off as other devotees advise building up to 16 over number of months or more Thanks in advance for the clarity ..

Do I have to give up my occupation to serve Krishna?

Hare Krsna , the introduction to BG as it is by Srila Prabhupada really summarizes the whole process perfectly doesn’t it ?
To remember Krsna always but at same time continue one’s occupation ,How easy !
My question or dilemma is that my occupation, like many peoples in this age is very demanding and stressful with long hours and I find myself very much absorbed in the day to day mundane requirements of my job not to mention the mundane association I have and therefore fail to remember Krsna ! Second simply on a practical level I feel I m lack the time to do 16 rounds a day and read an hour or two a day as you suggest.
Am I just making excuses or being lazy it’s hard to know, should I change my occupation I’ve not wanted to do that so far as Krsna advises Arjuna not to quit . What is your suggestion please ?

Our Opinion on Homosexuality?

Hi Pat,
I am a real neophyte practitioner of Bhakti yoga and have had and still have these struggles you talk of .
Couple of points come to mind . First ,Reading carefully and slowly Prabhupadas books will give you the strength of purpose for your efforts in Bhakti yoga .Thats a big one , if we don’t understand what we are doing or what’s on offer then why bother right?
Second point is even from a material point of view intoxication is pretty rubbish , hangovers, detoxing comedowns are no fun , but the major detriment to your chances at spiritual life is it erodes your DETERMINATION and ability to perform AUSTERITY. ( like chanting rounds)
Fourth you said you commit further sins from intoxication and that is likely as intoxication enlivens and agitates the senses for wanting further gratification .
Fifth association with other practitioners will help you find some people of like mind to associate with and perhaps you’ll be able to attain the strength to leave the intoxication behind .
I don’t know if it’s my place to comment but just some ideas .

Did man really walk on the Moon ???

The moon landing may well of been part of the cold war. But there is no religion that can explain the material universe. They are just not sophisticated enough.

Hare Krsna Prabhu . PAMHO,AGTSP
I am really enjoying reading your website.
Although i am in not in any standing as a devotee i can’t quite understand your reply above. How can it be that you are formally initiated but yet you are advising Glenn he shouldn’t take initiation in Iskcon, but just follow instructions in Srila Prabhupadas books, after all isn’t that what you are doing yourself ?
Will it be forever more we shouldn’t take initiation in iskcon ? How can we say infact if someone is pure or not in due course of time. ?

    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
