How did the original Caitanya-caritamrta get the original images? The scanned PDFs? I am curious as to the quality of the reprint. Is the new Original Srimad Bhagavatam going to have crystal clear copies of the original plates, etc? I already ordered multiple copies. I trust that I will be very pleased.

Solar Eclipses are not Caused by the Moon
If that’s what you think, then you obviously didn’t understand what you were seeing. The reason why you will find the earth to be flat in the Vedas, is because it’s meant only to be a 2D diagram of what things look like from above or below. Everything will always look flat in 2D. The reason it was done that way, is because it’s much easier to explain and make annotations on things made in 2D.
When you look at the sky… does the sun look flat to you? Does the moon look flat?. when you use a telescope, does Saturn look flat? Does Venus look flat?. The answer is no. They’re all a sphere, a globe. The only logical thing to follow is that the earth is also a globe, just like everything else in the solar system you can see with your eyes. There’s obviously a principle behind it.
Don’t mislead people into thinking nonsense and then attributing it to the Vedas. Comments like yours only make people doubt the truth in the Vedas because of your wrong understanding.
Just like uninitiated people should not preach the dhamma (to avoid it’s corruption or create wrong view), people without enough knowledge and correct understanding shouldn’t quote or attempt to explain the Vedas.
I’m a westerner (from Mexico) with a high respect for the Vedas, Hinduism, The Yogis of India and Tibet and Buddhism. Comments like the one you made are what make all these treasures of knowledge difficult to come into countries like mine. People dismiss them as rubbish because quacks like you make them sound like medieval nonsense, when in reality, they’re what we should all be learning worldwide.
Einstein’s theory of relativity came from the Vedas, and he admitted this himself during his lifetime.

Greetings of peace and sincere thanks to you, my new friend Madhudvisa dasa for sharing with myself and so many others that which His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prahuapda gifted the world with. I offer my humble obeisance to him as a guru, guide, teacher and to you as a friend (for Sri Krishna was a friend to Arjuna).
I have begun re-reading the Bhagavad Gita As It Is, along with the commentaries (and I wish that I knew how to better and more correctly pronounce the Sanskrit…perhaps in time…) and I find it uplifiting and very inviting. I have, since my first encounter with the Gita many years past, found myself very attracted to Krishna consciousness and Bhakti yoga.
My daughter, now ten years of age, when she was approximately 3 years old began to tell me of “another time” when we lived in a warmer place, dressed differently, had different occupations and wherein she was the mother and I was her son. By carefully listening so as to not lead her on and so as to allow her tell her stories as often as she felt compelled to do so, I pieced together that we lived in India where she was a live in servant/house keeper for someone and I worked outside with the farm animals. She has also had an affinity for Indian music, kirtran chanting and Sri Ganesha. I began to study about Sanatana Dharma because of her revelations and such is when I began to learn about Bhakti yoga, Sri Ramakrishna, etc., which lead me to Sri Krishna.
I am greatly looking forward to learning about the Bhagavad Gita and I am awaiting the collection of books by His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivendanta Swami Prahuapda that the Krishna.org web site offered. I think there delivery may have been delayed by the tropical storm that recently passed through this area.
If I may ask a question, is any innitiation necessary so as to formally practice Bhakti yoga and Krishna consciousness? If so, where would one need to go so as to undergo the same as the nearesst temple is in Boston and such is an ISKCON temple of which I personally know nothing about? Please correct me if I am incorrect but I would think that as Sri Krishna is within us and as we seek to return to Him, and He seeks to draw us to Him, that formal innitiation might not be altogether necessary unless one was entering a community/ashram.
Thank you again and sincerely for you assistance and for sharing what you have learned from His Divine Grace Swami Prahuapda not only with myself but with so many others. Such service must surely have its own merit(s).
(Smile, now I feel the need to begin chanting regularly as my health permits…)
Hare Krishna Namaste

My sincere thanks.

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!
