Hare Krishna! PAMHO
Beautifully done. Thank you prabhu’s very much. Sadly, this may not just be a video song but could soon be a reality.

Dear BBD Prabhu,
What Srila BSST is telling us is, not to have a critical attitude that we are personally the savious of the world but to enquire and be convinced that it is “I” who needs to change first. If what you are proposing is true then why did BSST send Srila Prabhupada to America to preach? If Srila Prabhupada did not preach vigorously then would you and I and thousands of others have become devotees?
Sri Chaintanya mahaprabhu mood and mission was to preach.. ISKCON is a resultant movement for preaching Lord Chaitanya’s mission on his order
Lord Chaitanya’s has ordered:
1) âJare dekho tare kaho Krishna upadesh, Aamar aagyay guru hoiya taro ei deshâ
“Whomsoever” you meet just talk about Krishna and His teachings, on my order.
2) “bharata bhumite haila manunya janma jar, janma sarthak kari’ karo para-upakar”
It is the duty of everyone who has the great fortune to take birth in Bharat ( India ) to preach the glories of Sri Guru & Gauranga to every one in the world. This is the ultimate altruistic act that is beneficial for everyone
Lord Chaitanya would personally hear praching report daily from Nityananda Prabhu and Haridas thakur about where they preached and how many devotees were made. This is something that we do on a weekly basis in ISKCON following in the footsteps of our Acharyas.

Dear Sarathy Prabhu,
All glories to Sri Vaishnavas who are always singing and glorifying the lord. It is very clear from Srila Prabhupada’s teachings that he never tried to convert anybody… he said that the only real religion is that which helps one progress towards developing loving service for the lord. But if by following all rules and regulations someone is not experiencing their loving service towards the lord giving up all materialistic desires then they need to search for a bona fide path that gives them such a result. It is well known that sincere Sri Vaishnavas are very dedicated and have a loving attitude for the service of the lord. This is very good and laudible. There is no need for Sri Vaishnavas to change. We do not advocate that one sampradaya gives up their Guru or disregard their teachings. Sri Sampradaya is absolutely bona fide.. they are vaishnavas and are worshippable by everybody in all the universe. We would request Sri Vaishnavas to continue what they are doing but also consider Lord Chaitanya’s order that vaishnavas should preach vigorously. So in that sense, we are requesting that Sri Vaishnavas continue what they are doing but at the same time introduce people to sankirtana(glorification of the lord), and to convince people with strong logic about the hellish situation of the materialistic way of life and also to establish firmly that Narayan is the supreme personality of Godhead. I understand that preaching activities are being done by Sri Vaishnavas and it can be increased manifold to save this world and Vaishnava culture but more importantly to become instruments of mercy and compassion of the lord.

Dear Sarathy Prabhu,
Kindly forgive me. I just wanted to correct you on one thing that we chant as a business dealing to get something. This is a wrong notion. The motivation for chanting is that it pleases the lord and is a glorification of the lord. When we chant, it means that we praying in a begging mood to the lord to ‘Engage us in his service.’ It is also a process for purification from six contamination of the heart consisting of lust, geed, anger, envy, pride, illusion which keeps us separated from serving the supreme lord Krishna. Also our acharyas instruct us to chant with love and not mechanically and one can actually feel the reciprocation with the lord when we chant purely. This is the process given in the vedic scriptures for kali yuga and also specially recommended by the supreme lord Narayana or Krishna as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who showed the behavior of an ideal devotee. It is the easiest process and full of nectar that only a chanter knows. This process is so sublime that the Alwars of Sri Sampradaya have glorified Chaitanya mahaprabhu’s devotees and have predicted that this wave of Krishma prem by devotees with raised hands chanting the holy names will inundate the whole world. We are already seeing signs of this due to extensive preaching by ISKCON devotees and other Vaishnava devotees as well. Srila Ramanuja charya gave his mercy to the world when he proclaimed on the Gostipur temple and freely gave away the mantra for chanting. He did this so that all the people can chant this holy mantra and attain perfection. His compassion was for the entire masses and not just for a few erudite scholars, pandits and caste brahmins.

Dear Sarathy Prabhu,
Please chant the holy names. You can do your pancharatrika vidhi, deity worship etc etc but let that be centered around chanting of the holy names of the lord. Lord Nityananda Prabhu is none other than Lord Balaram (the source of Anantasesh..) so if you are attached to Srila Ramanuja charya then you should take to his request, as Nityananda prabhu, that everybody should chant the holy names. Please do not give up this special mercy of the lord towards the suffering souls of kali yuga. Also, we having taken advantage of this mercy, should distribute this to others. We get mercy by giving mercy. That is real compassion and our responsibility towards all living entities as human beings. I therefore request you humbly by falling at your feet and begging you to consider this request.

It is not a matter of one sampradaya being superior to another. Each sampradaya is bona fide and established by the lord. HG Jananivas Prabhu is only requesting other sampradaya devotees to chant the holy names of the lord, specially the hare krishna maha mantra, which is the yuga dharma given in the vedic scriptures. If somebody is attached to chanting any other holy names then that is also correct. We also tell muslims to chant Allah. But if somebody does not want to chant the holy names but wants to follow any other process then their advancement will be slow, although not incorrect if followed according to scriptures, because it is mentioned in the vedic scriptures that in kali yuga there is no other way - no other way - no other way - but to chant the holy names (harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalam, kalau nastyeva, nastyeve, nastyeve gatir anyatha). However, we see that the majority of people do not know this and as per the supreme lord’s (Chaitanya Mahaprabhu) order, we are requesting everybody to chant the holy names and quickly progress to Goloka vrindavan.

What a wonderful story. This redefines how a Cow is to be taken care of. Thank you so much for sharing this. We pray that may Smita go back home soon to Krishna (Lava matra sadhu sanga sarva siddhi haya - that was her great fortune). The above devotee’s comments about tractor was very unkind and misplaced. If the tractor is the cow’s nemesis, then more so is the diesel fuel that powers it. Can we give up diesel and not accept anything that comes or gets transported from diesel fueled trucks and vehicles?
