We Have a Country - How Are We Going To Run It?

Wouldn’t it better to set create peaceful and loving Iskcon society first before dreaming to take over the world? As a devotee, can you live peacefully with other devotees who have similar faith? If you can’t live peacefully with them, how can you live with rest of the world.

May be good start will be to resolve Iskcon Bangalore issue! Both parties are supposed to be sincere followers of Prabhupda.

On things Quantum

Dear Pustakrishna Prabhu,

I am sorry for the harsh words. I trust you. I accept devotees as honest and truthful. I have faith that you are honest with your own self and you have vision of Krishna.

My humble request to you is to preach and help others to understand the verses SB 3.29.21-25. These verses are solutions to many Iskcon problems. Living by these verses is great service to Krishna and Prabhupada.

There are many people in Iskcon who don’t see presence of Krishna in everyone. These people pose as devotees but unfortunately, their attempts are burnt into ashes and they don’t please Krishna. It is because they have not clearly understood the meaning of verses 3.29.21-25. They don’t understand the gravity of these verses and waste their life.

Seeing the presence of Krishna in everyone, makes us see other as the manifestation of Krishna instead of seeing them as someone bad or rascal. Instead of seeing them with contempt, we see them with appreciation and love. Instead of seeing others with pride and superiority, we see them with humility. Instead of trying to serve few selected few gurus or devotees, it makes us serve all people around us without discrimination .

SB 11.29.15: For him who constantly meditates upon My presence within all persons, the bad tendencies of rivalry, envy and abusiveness, along with false ego, are very quickly destroyed.

SB 11.29.19: Indeed, I consider this process — using one’s mind, words and bodily functions for realizing Me within all living beings — to be the best possible method of spiritual enlightenment.

Please help others to follow the last instructions of Krishna.

>> Please do not think that Krishna cannot be known.

I never said that. But it appeared from your response that you don’t have glimpse of Krishna. So, I just wanted you to look more deeper and be more honest with yourself. Ultimately, your bhakti is your responsibility.

>> Some ones may have been given a glimpse of the spiritual world by the grace of Krishna.

I agree. SP said that realizing self as beyond matter is the first step in self realization.

Here are some statements from Bhagavatam. They clearly state the people who do bhakti in vain. All of us need to see presence of Krishna in everyone as stated in follow verses:

SB 3.29.21: I am present in every living entity as the Supersoul. If someone neglects or disregards that Supersoul everywhere and engages himself in the worship of the Deity in the temple, that is simply imitation.

SB 3.29.22: One who worships the Deity of Godhead in the temples but does not know that the Supreme Lord, as ParamA�tmA�, is situated in every living entity’s heart, must be in ignorance and is compared to one who offers oblations into ashes.

SB 3.29.23: One who offers Me respect but is envious of the bodies of others and is therefore a separatist never attains peace of mind, because of his inimical behavior towards other living entities.

SB 3.29.24: My dear Mother, even if he worships with proper rituals and paraphernalia, a person who is ignorant of My presence in all living entities never pleases Me by the worship of My Deities in the temple.

SB 3.29.25: Performing his prescribed duties, one should worship the Deity of the Supreme Personality of Godhead until one realizes My presence in his own heart and in the hearts of other living entities as well.

The above facts are not properly emphasized in Iskcon. Hopefully, you can do that. If you don’t see presence of Krishna in everyone, then you should stop criticizing others and start working on yourself.

>> They are trying to ‘live without death’

How about you! We all know that we are going to die. Still, there is inherent instinct in us which wants to live. That is given by Krishna Himself.

The soul is sat chid ananad i.e. it is eternal, full of knowledge and happiness. As atma is eternal, you want to live for eternity even when you assume identity with body. You don’t need to “die to live”. Good news is that you always live and you never die.

You don’t even need to renounce anything. Matter cannot touch your atma. Your atma thinks that it is body but actually, no material object can ever be owned by atma. Nothing belongs to you. Real renunciation means to understand the self and to understand that you are beyond the matter. Therefore, you don’t give importance to material objects and don’t depend on them as you realize that you are beyond them. From the perspective of bhakti, real renunciation means that everything belongs to Krishna.

By trying to “die to live”, you might be trying to imitate the state of devotee who sees everything belongs to Krishna (or who sees self as beyond body) without proper realization.

You may claim that the scientist don’t know Krishna. But before you make the claim, you need to understand Krishna and your own self as beyond body and matter. If you realize the above facts, you can help others even scientists to reach that goal. Till then, you will be creating more chaos.

Many devotees say that we don’t need to realize the truth to preach. That results in blind preaching the truth. That causes fights between devotees. Many devotees are banned. But at sometime, devotees need to know self and Krishna. Ultimately, Prabhupada wanted you to know your self as sat chid anand and know Krishna.

The real scientist is the person who realizes self and Krishna and helps others to do so. Such person will also be appreciated by material scientist. Be that person.

Dear PustaKrishna Prabhu,

Bhaktya mam abhijanati…………….

Do you know Krishna? Krishna is beyond the inert matter. Not only Krishna, your own self is beyond the matter. If you don’t know Krishna, do you at least know your own self?

Cause of all Causes

>> he inaugurated the simplest form of process to surrender in love by chanting the holy names of God Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare/ Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare,

nAmnAm akAri bahudhA nija-sarva-zaktis

Just want to clarify that there are unlimited names of Krishna. All of these names are non-different from Krishna. All these names are invested with personal potency of Krishna. So, any of those names or mantras can be chanted in this age of Kali.

These names are so potent that even chanting them backwards also results in spiritual effects like Valmiki chanting ma-ra instead of ra-ma.

Muslims use word - ha-ra-ma. Since this world contains Rama, then also get the credit of chanting the names of Hari.

It is important to understand that Krishna has unlimited names or mantras and any of those can be chanted.

Are Economic Development and Bhakti Mutually exclusive?

Best thing is to set the example instead of merely writing article.

Create a self-sufficient society which resembles the economic development explained in above article and show that people can be more happier.

If you show the above, people will automatically follow it.

>> The modern civilization may foolishly encourage boatmen to go sailing without rudder

It is foolish to criticize modern civilization when you cannot provide good alternative.

Three Levels of Devotees Which One Are You?

“The perfect madhyam bhakta has attained absolute knowledge because he can speak directly to Paramatma in his heart. “

Is this statement based on shastra?

Comment Posted By ramavijaya On 15.03.2011 @ 18:29

Please consider following verses from Srimad Bhagavatam in regards to one’s level of devotion:

SB 3.29.21: I am present in every living entity as the Supersoul. If someone neglects or disregards that Supersoul everywhere and engages himself in the worship of the Deity in the temple, that is simply imitation.

SB 3.29.22: One who worships the Deity of Godhead in the temples but does not know that the Supreme Lord, as Paramatma, is situated in every living entity’s heart, must be in ignorance and is compared to one who offers oblations into ashes.

SB 3.29.23: One who offers Me respect but is envious of the bodies of others and is therefore a separatist never attains peace of mind, because of his inimical behavior towards other living entities.

SB 3.29.24: My dear Mother, even if he worships with proper rituals and paraphernalia, a person who is ignorant of My presence in all living entities never pleases Me by the worship of My Deities in the temple.

SB 3.29.25: Performing his prescribed duties, one should worship the Deity of the Supreme Personality of Godhead until one realizes My presence in his own heart and in the hearts of other living entities as well.
