Srila Prabhupada was not alone to claim the monlanding was a hoax

I also want to thank Varnadi prabhu for his commitment and patience. I’ve never been all that much interested in the whole moon landing argument, but I think I’ve learned a little bit from this discussion. You have really put time and effort into understanding and then explaining the subject. As Brahma Das said, most refreshing.

Courses for the second term at the Bhaktivedanta College

I don’t undestand what’s the problem? If you do not want to study the things that The Bhaktivedanta College has to offer, you don’t have to do it. There are people who just want to study Prabhupada’s books and skip all the rest. Fair enough. Enroll on Bhaktisastri course or something like that. Now, there are people who want to or need to have some knowledge about the context of other culture, often those we grew up in. Let them do that! What’s the problem? Nobody is being forced to attend Bhaktivedanta College to be a devotee or to be initiated. Why you want to force others to do things your way?

And believe it or not, many of the questions our tradition deals with, and many of the problems our movement faces, are not that unique. Others face them too and deal with them too. We can learn from them, they can learn from us. Also on the academic level, and I think that’s one of the ideas with the Bhaktivedanta College. I personally think they are doing a great job. And I think it’s great that there is a variety of educational possibilities offered for devotees with different inclinations. On one hand projects like bhaktisastri courses and Gopiparanadhana Prabhu’s bhraminical school, on the other hand initiatives giving devotees a chance to study western philosophy as well, but in devotional context. You may not need it as an individual, and that’s fine. But some need it as individuals and we certainly need it as a movement.

Does Sex Attraction Bring People to Krishna?

In the text 49 Bir Krishna Maharaj explained clearly that his question is NOT related to Indradyumna Maharajas preaching program. I would like to ask you to please take it into consideration while writing your responses. Otherwise we get some unnecessary criticism and/or misdirected comments, which appear even in some of the texts written after Maharaja’s explanation.

Film Review: Water: A Repudiation of Manu

This is a letter from Tamala Krishna Goswami wrote after consulting with Srila Prabhupada regarding Manu-samhita:

My dear Madhusudana Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated May 4th, 1977.
I discussed the contents of your letter with His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada stated that our grhasthas should simply chant 50 rounds before conceiving a child. Prabhupada said: “We do not want all these rituals. Chanting Hare Krishna is our only business. According to the Manu-samhita you are all mlecchas and yavanas. You cannot touch the Manu-samhita, what to speak of translating it. So if you try to follow the Manu-samhita then you become a mleccha and yavana and your career is finished.” I hope this makes the matter clear.
Hoping this meets you well.
Your servant,
Tamal Krishna Gosvami
Secretary to Srila Prabhupada

Personally I do not agree that following the Laws of Manu is a priority for this movement. Chanting and propagating maha-mantra and Bhagavatam are ISKCONs priority. I do not know if you have read Manu-samhita, but mleccha as I am, I’ve read its fragments, and I would be worried if ISKCON would try to introduce its letter. Perhaps some principles behind it can be followed, but imho trying to established its letter in the present world would not do any good to anybody.

Is Jiva Gosvami’s philosophy the same as Sri Caitanya’s?

Hari bol!

Thank you for the nice article. I have two questions in this connection.

You are writing: “Until that period two famous Vaisnava commentaries already existed: Ramanuja (1017-1137) and Madhva (1238-1317)…” Do you mean by this that there was a commentary on Bhagavatam by Ramanuja? I always thought that he did not comment on Bhagavatam. If there was one, what was it called?

What is the book by Sheridan that you are referring to? It’s not mentioned by title, and it seems that you overlooked it in the bibliography.

Thank you in advance
