Imitating Srila Prabhupada’s position is not a good idea. It is better to serve humbly than to receive
foot baths and adoration mean’t for maha bhagavata devotee. because when a devotee falls down who was adorned in these ways, this makes a laughing stock of Srila Prabhupada s ISKCON for all to see.
We should try to serve Srila Prabhupada and not imitate him. What does the average person think when they see that someone who was lavishly worshiped in ISKCON behaves like an ordinary person. ? They laugh at us . They think look how they treated that person with so much awe and veneration,
and gave so much money and now that person is behaving just like anyone else. They must be blind followers. ISKCON should not set itself up for these highly embarasing senerios . Not good for PR.
great service by any devotee may be there but there is no need to imitate Srila Prabhupada when we are not on Srila Prabhupada’s level of devotion. where is the need ? why is the need ?

Thank you very much Kalakanta prabhu and Jitamrita for this article .
We also had a set of those large red beads in the early days in the Miami area, Opa Locka temple, a small house. Along with $800, the beads were stolen from our red sankirtan temple van one day.
Those big red craft store beads are pictured on Mukunda swamis neck and chest, on the cover of” Miracle on Second Avenue’, as he placed a large garland over Srila Prabhupada’s head and unto his shoulders. This book is absolutely wonderful, as practically every page is filled with early memories of Srila Prabhupada, along with details on everything, including conversations, places, names, and events. Am also greatly appreciating a book about our god brother George Harrison, entitled I,Me,Mine.

Speaking about spreading Krsna Consciousness broadly, lately always has methink of television as the tool for educating people in diet,health,philosophy and morality . A devotee is compassionate to others.
What broader tool could there be ? This would be the rhinorserous Srila Prabupada talked of. Certainly a tremendous amount of planing,filming,co-operation and money would be required for a 24/7 channel, if even permitted . What better way to oppose maya en mass and massively.

This article shows how uplifting for the prisoners the association of devotee’s is.
Now, if devotee’s came there regularly eventually some prisoners would begin doing japa and reading on their own and then even leading their own programs in prison. Its like teaching people how to grow their own food and feed themselves

Thank you for that info. Abhaya Mudra dd, I’ll refer the readers to Mukunda Goswami,s book,”MIRACLE on Second Avenue” pages 192 and 192 wherein Srila Prabhupada responds to a newspaper article which described events around people throwing stones at the prime minister Indira Ghandi in India. Srila Prabhupada was not opposed this action and explained why the government is responsible for the citizens happiness in general. He gave the example of King Yudhisthira who always felt the weight and pain of his subjects. Srila Prabhupada,” it was their duty to protect against all disturbances”. He is referring to government, whom Prabhupada said in SB,reap 1/6 the sinful or pious actions of all the citizens of the country.
My understanding at this point is that if animal slaughter is not mostly done away with by educating the masses on the vast amount of pitfalls and sinful reactions both personal and country wide, then Kali will continue marching forward which is daily evident. Education may be done by television, ie, a dedicated channel mean’t for uplifting all the citizens in all respects, which includes diet,health,and general well being. Since no one can avoid the reactions of sinful actions it behooves the devotee’s of the Lord, out of compassion to come together as a team with the needed money and television know how, to establish a 24 hour daily broadcast mean’t for helping the common man in all respects. When people hear what happens to their bodies by continued meat eating , many will naturally want to stop out of fear of disease. The more people that discontinue meat eating, the less demand, the less animal slaughter. Simple arithmetic. When Oprah heard on public television from Howard Lyman, about the pitfalls of meat eating, she immediately blurted out,”i’ll never eat another hamburger”, after which the Texas Meat Group, attempted to sue Oprah Winfrey $15,000 million for loss of sales and they lost. (see Howard Lyman lawsuit web site. )
Srila Prabhupada got us started, leaving us with unlimited service to help ourselves and do good to others.
For all sincere christians The Essene Gospel of Peace by His Disciple John ,(dead sea scroll), translated from aramaic, (by Dr Edward Sezekly), the language Lord Jesus Christ spoke in, one half way through describes the horrors of flesh eating, which sounds like cancer though he does not use that word.

Actually God is always our witness, in dream or wakefulness, in heaven or hell.
reference, “Miracle on Second avenue”, introduction Shyamasundara das Adhikary, page x11, Srila Prabhupada,” Become yourselves Krishna conscious, and spread Krishna consciousness”. I especially appreciate this statement of Srila Prabhupada because it says to me that where ever we are at we can become Krishna conscious and then spread Krishna consciousness to our best ability. This is our daily challenge as we evolve from maya.
God does not focus on our faults , rather He accepts our service. Srila Prabhupada did not focus on our faults, rather he focused on our upliftment.
Bhagavad Gita As It Is chapter 6 verse 7. “He who is regulated in his habits of eating,sleeping,recreation and work can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system”.
In Srila Prabhupada’s purport he explains how a pure devotee cent percent engaged in Krishna’s service behaves, so that is the definite goal which we can all aspire to. thank you

“The Essene Gospel of Peace by His Disciple John”, is online free . It is one of the dead sea scrolls translated from the aramaic language which Lord Jesus spoke . Dr Edward Sezekly translated this one hour read. One half way through Lord Jesus in no uncertain terms explains that flesh or meat eating is an abomination to the human body. He points out in ghastly terms that meat creates all kinds of disease within the body. This scripture was written originally on parchment and fund in a urn within a cave above the Dead Sea . Any sincere person who has some love for Lord Jesus should be hard pressed to accept His words of instruction on this matter of diet.

Sita Ram prabhu did not say where in the veda base Srila Prabhupada made a statement about their being more females than males, so to verify requires research. Personally, since Srila Prabhupada is a fully self realized soul completely surrendered & in Love with Godhead, Sri Krsna, I always try tp see how Srila Prabhupada is correct rather than meditate on the opposite. It is we that are in illusion. And it’s not that difficult to see how many others are also, although our main business is our own self realization, our own self examination.
thank you Satyahit das
