not to mention a financial boon for the distributing temple.

Los Angeles Harinam

Yes. As long as the performance is not the Harinam, on the part of the devotees, it serves to attract many people to hear the Holy Name and participate – which is the purpose of Harinam – if not the sankirtan movement of Lord Caitanya

Business Model For Vicarious Cow Protection

What about the milk bought at the market? These milk purveyors force the cows to be pregnant to overproduce milk, then slaughter the calves.

A Sporting Chance?

Admittedly, there is the age factor. Young people can eat to excess and not show an ounce, whereas the middle aged can eat a few too many mouthfuls and it turns to fat immediately.

I see a number of overweight devotees, which regardless of one’s spiritual status is unhealthy. Not being the body is no reason to allow it to go to pots.

Regular exercise is an essential component of good health. Temple devotees, especially book distributors get plenty I suppose. It’s just those on the outside with desk jobs that need to ‘work out’ enough to stay healthy. (As opposed to grooming the body for sexual attractiveness).

The ‘sport’ of watching sports is vicarious. The emotions that participating/watching stimulate are aggressive angry competition. That’s why there are so many violent incidents at these events. Some more injurious sports like boxing could hardly be considered the pasttime of a vaisnava. Moreover, in America it’s revered like a religion and is big big business bringing in millions of dollars in revenue.

Let’s not conflate the issue of physical fitness with these games.

Are there any current examples of such debates? I mean since Prabhupada’s samadhi.
I find that debate is discouraged and regarded as ‘challenging’ and offensive.

Putting An End to Courtesy Japa

Thank you for reminding me how serious I have to be when praying to the Supreme Lord. I am such an offender. I will do my best to improve.

Prescribed Duties and Sankirtana-yajna

Why doesn’t ISKCON optimize this “primarily books” principle and just become a book publishing/retailing corporation. It seems maintaing temples is an unnecessary overhead.

Reporter: Does “surrender” mean that someone would have to leave his family ?
Srila Prabhupada: No.
Reporter: But suppose I were to become an initiate. Wouldn’t I have to come and live in the temple ?
Srila Prabhupada: Oh, yes.
Reporter: What about Work ? Would I have to give up job ?
Srila Prabhupada: No, you’d simply have to give up your bad habits and chant the Hare Krsna mantra on these beads – that’s all.
Reporter: Would I have to give any financial support.
Srila Prabhupada: No, that is your voluntary wish. If you give, that’s all right. And if you don’t, we don’t mind. We do not depend on anyone’s financial contribution. We depend on Krsna.
Reporter: I wouldn’t have to give any money at all ?
Srila Prabhupada: No.

There is a major contradiction in Prabhupada’s statement here and the article’s insistence that giving our money to ISKCON for book distribution is a step on the path to bhakti.
