Atma Yoga: the full picture

Hare Krishna,

Very well written article. I am also a hatha yoga teacher and I try my best to pass the bhakti yoga teachings.

Besides the asanas, pranayama etc all the students do meditation repeating Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya. We celebrate Janmasthami for the last 3 years, including arati, fire ceremony, prasadam etc.

I really appreciate the service of Atmananda Prabhu, who I personally know. He is a very good teacher, a very good devotee.

I hope Iskcon will support him more in this wonderful service to Srila Prabhupada.

Hinduization of Iskcon?

Hare Krishna!

Dear Jaya Madhava Prabhu,

PAMHO All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Thanks for your comment. In some parts I strongly agree with you. Unfortunately too much preaching is going after the indian community, neglecting the preaching to the local people. Srila Prabhupada very storngly instructed the devotees to make the local people devotees and led them organize and manage the temple.

Of course we have to preach to the indian community as well any other community. Many nice and sincere devotees came from the indian community in the USA and UK, also the Nederlands.

Once a very senior sannyasi says that if Srila Prabhupada will come personally to the west and visit the temples it will be unhappy to see only indians and he will say THIS IS AN INDIAN CLUB not THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS.

Only one clarification, Diwali is a vaisnava festival its celebrates the Return of Lord Rama after 14 years of exile. The non vaisnava part of the festival is the only worship of Lakshmi for material benefits. You can find some letters in Prabhupada Siksamrita where Srila Prabhupada mentions how to observe Diwali or Dipawali.

Hope this meets you in good health
