Hare Krishna Devotees of the Lord. PAMHO. AGTSP.
Scientific preaching is not just another target to preach. A scientist has they own symbolic universe, where words often gain another implication. In that way, one must to know the paradigm correspondent to the science our “preached scientist” studies.
There are unlimited forms of God. And there are hundred of conceptions of God among human race. And all of them are in a way or another precise for the platform of enlightenment one posses. We all agree that among all personalities of God, KRISHNA is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and that Vishnu is the Supreme Lord among all lords of the universe. But to be the supreme does not means to be the only. As a matter of fact, supreme means superior to others, so there is a need of others to be the supreme. Those others are Lord Brahma, the creator god, Lord Siva, the destructor god, and Sri Parvati, the Material Nature itself.
As Srila Prabhupada says, anyone can build, anyone can destroy, but only Vishnu can maintain. So Vishnu is the Supreme. Because He is beyond the influence of time, because He is the Supreme Time, and the Supreme Controller.
But sometimes we meet people who are in a different platform of understanding. It is very common in local cultures that people feels that” cosmic connection” with Mother Nature, Uma, Parvati. Some scientist see everything in chaos, and some people see God as a Supreme Male who controls Nature, which are attributes of Sri Siva. And Finally there is the common feeling that God is the Creator of everything, the supreme Father, Brahma.
As vaishnavas, our duty may be not to try to change their comprehension of God, but to lead them to a higher platform of understanding. The Supreme Truth: “Isvara paramah krisna sat-cit-ananda vigraha”
Almost every scientific discover has a portion of true. Even being limited to a type of understanding and preconception. But a portion of true is nothing. It is there where it lies their mistakes. They grab a part as the whole. And the whole is Krishna. Not Brahma, not Siva, not Nature, not Vishnu. Just Krishna. nityo-nityanam cetanas-cetananam eko bahunam yo vidadhati kaman.
Every word, every concept, every true a scientist could found adds to this statement. But this statement is the starting point for any investigation. Srila Prabhupada allows intellectual speculation, but mental speculation is totally forbidden. In relation to raso Ā“ham apsu kaunteya Prabhupada said we can speculate HOW Krishna is the taste of water, that is intellectual speculation, but we CAN NOT speculate IF Krishna is indeed the taste of water. Any attempt we made in order to understand God is acceptable as a positive action towards oneself enlightenment, and we must encourage people to keep their mode, and gradually, with love, humility and respect, bring them to the light of Srila PrabhupadaĀ“s words and servants. As Ananta Ram das said: “Let Srila Prabhupada and the Vaishnava acaryas continue the preaching”.

Hare Krishna Prabhu Hari dasa: PAMHO, AGTSP
I`m disciple of HH Bhaktibusana Swami Maharaja. I live in Rosario, Argentina, and produce electronic music since 1991, except for the years i lived in the temple as a brahmacari sankirtana devotee. At this time iĀ“m working on a dance-tech-deep house project, “Brhat Mrdanga”, which has 2 tracks about to be ready: “Bhakti Groove”, basically a computer kirtana, and “Doves”, where a vocoder filters”chant hare krishna and be happy” with the base chords . More on process.
I produce and perform electronic music on virtual platform, basically using “Fruity Loops” with VST plugins.
ThatĀ“s about me.
Right now, i`m trying to get support for an idea. A local, regional, national or worldwide (it all depends on how much does it pleases to Krishna and the devotees) festival of vaishnava electronic art (music, vjĀ“s, instalations, perfomances, etc). Since i have no experience or contacts of any kind to do this, this is my first step begging for your help.
If you could helpme in any way, by givingme any advice or comment, il be forever thankful.
Thank you for your support and care
