The Great Moon Landing Hoax

WiliamV and Kulapavana, it’s always refreshing to read your intelligent comments among so much nonsense. I admire your tolerance in continuing these discussions on Dandavats. Devotees would be better off if they decided to seriously study Bhaktivinoda Thakur, including his autobiography and Shukavak’s “Hindu Encounter with Modernity.” A main problem in these discussion is the confusion stemming from taking faith and belief to be identical. Shukavak does a great service explaining the difference and how one can maintain faith in the holy name and Krishna, and yet disregard certain beliefs.

Radha Kunda tilak - Bonafide or not?

Thank you prabhuji. Perhaps you can take your article a step further and discuss the problems in ISKCON about bathing in Radha Kunda.

Proper Gender Roles in ISKCON Must be Authoritatively and Clearly Defined

Sita Ram Prabhu writes:

“Or a couple may be essentially equal, spiritually.”

May you kindly provide the reference substantiating this claim?

Astronomical Models of Lunar Position

SD Muni Prabhu, I think you misunderstood my mood. When I wrote about my experience as a mathematics professor, I did it not because I am enamored with what I do (and in fact I plan to resign to this university professorship in a few months so I can open a small gurukula in New Talavan), but simply to establish some credibility in terms of how to preach to people I talk to on a regular basis. Nevertheless, you are right that humility is important. However, humility is the distinguishing quality of a Vaisnava.

As a mathematics professor with some experience in scientific preaching, I can only say that Sruti Prabhu’s account of Danavir Maharaja’s research team has no chance of being effective preaching.

Srila Prabhupada’s quote in the letter to Madhava Prabhu is quite revealing. “So whether Sukadeva Goswami or the modern scientists are right or wrong, it is nothing interesting to us.”

This is interesting because Madhava was, and still is, involved with the Bhaktivedanta Institute. As such, he and others concern themselves with these topics.

One important point we have to understand is that “modern scientists” (whatever that means) are not opposed to the Bhagavatam version BECAUSE, for the most part, they are unaware of its existence, especially in America and Europe. If the first introduction to the Bhagavatam that a “modern scientist” gets is a puranic cosmology shot, we will have done a tremendous disservice to that human being because most probably he or she will deride the Bhagavatam. Instead, we should focus on honoring prasadam with them and inviting them for harinam sankirtan. If we need to exchange philosophical ideas, we can talk about life and death, karma, and so many other subjects. Why are some devotees obsessed with presenting something they cannot present in a convincing way? For instance, if a modern scientist watches either Sadaputa Prabhu’s or Danavir Maharaja’s DVD’s on the cosmology of the universe, they will be turned off from devotional service, at least for this lifetime.

Among other things, Mother Abhaya Mudra wrote:

“Did the co-called Moon rascal astronauts see ice on the Moon? No, they don‚Äôt even remember seeing stars in the sky. And stars are closer to the Moon than to bhu Mandala. They should have seen them very bright.”

If this is a genuine sample of our best approach to convince intellectual and scientific non-devotees about the glories of the Bhagavatam and devotional service, I fear we are headed toward destruction. We should better share some prasadam with them and invite them to join us in Harinam sankirtan.

The Final Wish

Our plans to start our first gurukula are becoming a reality faster than we thought. An ISKCON farm community is a likely candidate. To find out more information, “friend” us on Facebook.

A Teacher’s Humility

Dandavats Akruranatha Prabhuji. I’m humbled to have such a short reply from Dandavats’ most prolific commentator. :)
