Raghava’s Reincarnation Myth

Part 2 :

Secondly, I think that to simply overlook, or disregard the words of Srila Prabhupada - to try to interpret them to suit oneself is not correct. I agree with Prabhava Vigraha Prabhu, that we cannot doubt Srila Prabhupada’s exact words. I do not see that Srila Prabhupada’s words are open for interpretation. They are, to me, quite simple and straightforward. He is the authority, and we accept the words as they are.
I am also in agreement with Abhaya Mataji, regarding how many many divine souls have to wait many years… Krsna is not as easy to attain as we all would like to feel. We have much work to do, much to prove as disciples, and grand disciples. Who knows how long, for how many lifetimes, we have already been trying to reach Krsna? Who knows for how many more lifetimes we need to live, before we are able to go back Home?
If Krsna would like us to remember a past life, who can stop Him?
If Krsna would like us to forget everything, who can stop Him?
He is the cause of both.. as we know.
If, as we know, the sons of Kuvera were allowed to remember their previous lives, can we really question if a devotee of Krsna can remember as well? Who, exactly, are we to question this, if Krsna, has allowed it?
If anything, the Diary of Ratnavali mataji is most welcomed, as it serves to build our faith and understanding, in the process of Krsna Consciousness - the science thereof - not the religion.
If we happen to have the doubt, we can question of course - but please do this with the correct etiquette and process in mind.

Part 1

Hare Krsna Jeevan Mukta Prabhu,
pamho. AGTSP!
I think it is quite good to question things as we learn, and grow in Krsna Consciousness. However, there is a way to question devotees. A certain standard of Vaisnava etiquette that should be followed.
Personally, if I had any doubts regarding the Diary of Ratnavali Devi Dasi (and may I add - I have no doubts), then I would have approached this topic quite differently. If I have any issue, or question for anyone, devotee or not, I think the best way is to approach the devotee(s) involved directly. This is the proper way. I would have requested Ratnavali Mataji to answer my questions, and I would have asked Patita Pavan Prabhu and Abhaya Mataji for further clarification, revealing my heart and mind to them.
I am, after all, not an expert on Vedic Astrology. I do have any qualification in this regard, nor do I have years of experience in this regard. I certainly am not empowered. However, I do understand that this is a Vedic science, and one of our most highly regarded Vedic sciences.
If I would question, I would be open to hearing the answers as well. This is the correct way to question. We do not question to fight, or create doubt, etc.. We question, to learn and to understand.
