Wednesday 6 July 2011 from Melbourne, Australia --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Today's Thought:Jesus Christ Teaches Bhagavad-gita PrincipleA Christian does not have to abandon Christianity to become Krishna conscious because Krishna consciousness is the perfection of Christianity. Tuesday 5 July 2011 from Melbourne, Australia --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Today's Thought:Don't Be an AnimalIf we simply eat, sleep, mate, and defend, we are on the animal platform. Sooner or later we all have to face the prospect of leaving our present material body behind.
What determines whether we get promoted or whether we have to repeat the course by remaining within the cycle of birth and death? If our thoughts are purely absorbed in thoughts of the Lord and His service, this is our way of solidly expressing our desire to be with Him in His eternal abode. If, however, our mind is holding onto material desires, the Lord will allow us to take birth again in this abode of birth and death for the fulfillment of those desires. Whenever I am indulged in any activity that is in some or other way related to Krishna, I experience immense happiness, pleasure and comfort which I could never experience otherwise. You should be prepared to execute whatever duties you are given for Krishna's service by the spiritual master, never mind whether they are pleasing or displeasing to you. There is nothing wrong to become happy by serving Krishna because happiness is the natural result of devotional service to the Lord. All I wish is that I could join you in your preaching tour hearing and glorifying Lord Krishna and His devotees. Thank you very much for your sweet words of appreciation of my humble attempt the serve the orders of my beloved spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. It is truly a fact that there is unlimited nectar out here on the pilgrimage trail as we share the nectar of Krishna consciousness with souls who are thirsty for it all over the world. You and anybody else who would like to join me on all or part of any of my tours is most welcome.
Because people's hearts are becoming more and more polluted with lust, anger and greed, the entire atmosphere is becoming more and more polluted.
The timeless Vedic wisdom describes a transcendental realm presided over by Sri Sri Radha and Krishna, the original divine couple. If the spiritual master purely repeats the words of Krishna as given in the Bhagavad-gita without any addition or subtraction, he is bona fide.
If your guru is not bona fide, you must reject him and take shelter of the bona fide spiritual master. I advise you, my dear readers, that if you want to taste the ultimate nectar at every minute, kindly take hint from the paradisial discovery that I have made and do the needful for reviving your lost divine consciousness. I joined this movement 36 years ago when I was their age, and I don't feel like I have aged a day since then. The incarnation of God is understood according to the revealed scriptures, not according to the bogus claims of unscrupulous pretenders.
We are following the authorized system of the most recent incarnation of God on this planet, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, as confirmed in the revealed Vedic scriptures. Through the process of transmigrating lifetime after lifetime we have gradually come to the human form.
On Tuesday 24 April 2007 I got the opportunity to lecture to a hall full of students at Estonia's University of Tartu on what is the next step in evolution and how to achieve it.
I understand that the guru is not omniscient, that he is not the same as Krishna, and that he is a representative of Krishna.
My question is that is there a possibility that a guru or his teachings may be wrong or His instructions may be wrong?
Although the guru is not omniscient because he has a direct connection the Supreme Omniscient he is as good as the Supreme Omniscient.
23 April 2007--This morning I appeared live on a talk show on Estonian National Television.
It is a very wonderful and satisfying feeling to be able to touch so many peoples' hearts with the sublime mercy of Lord Sri Krishna. When we say we are part of the great God we always say, I am a part of God (aham brahmasmi). Nestled peacefully away from the city streets on the interior of a city block in central Tallinn, Estonia is the Sri Sri Harinama Mandir, the Temple of the Holy Names. What are the moods of the great Vaishnava Acharyas while chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra? If one can not attain that perfection, can he still attain the highest abode of Goloka Dhama.
Can you please give some insight what Srila Prabhupada has instructed his disciples and what the ideal devotee should aspire for after he comes to Krishna consciousness? Question: What should a devotee aspire for when he remains steadfast in Krishna consciousness?
Answer: To always faithfully carry out the instructions received from his spiritual master.
Answer: When we chant pure Hare Krishna Maha-mantra, then we are elevated to the platform of transcendental love.
Question: What are the moods of the great Vaishnava Acharyas while chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra? Question: If one can not attain that perfection, can he still attain the highest abode of Goloka Dhama. Question: Can you please give some insight what Srila Prabhupada has instructed his disciples and what the ideal devotee should aspire for after he comes to Krishna consciousness? On our recent visit to Sillamae, Estonia for three days all we did was dive deeper and deeper into the transcendental nectar of Krishna's glories in the association of some of His wonderful devotees. 2) Since Krishna accompanies us as the Supersoul through our millions of transmigrations in the cycle of birth and death I am wondering why He Himself wants to suffer being within this material existence? Because Krishna is unlimitedly independent and because we are part and parcel of Him, the quality of independence also exists in us a to a small degree. The first qualification for understanding our teachings is that you must become the devotee of Krishna. We are now in Sillamae, Estonia relishing the sweet nectar of Krishna katha which is flowing like the Ganges River on its way to the sea.
I am hoping this will take you to the straight path that there is no God except Allah, to the absolute truth, and to a better understanding about the name of Supreme Personality of God who came in different forms such as Muhammad, Riaz, and Krishna.
Krishna's lotus feet are the most suitable cruise ship for crossing over the ocean of material existence. Today we are heading out for a new chapter in our ever-increasingly ecstatic traveling and preaching all over the world program. So as we cruise the Gulf of Finland this morning on a ship to Tallinn, Estonia my heart will be full with sweet memories of the uplifting Krishna consciousness atmosphere that we have so much relished here at ISKCON Helsinki.
Doesn't Sanatan Dharma need to be updated constantly into a vibrant lifestyle, celebrating the Supreme Personality of Godhead in all His manifestations?
Why don't we place more emphasis on the coming golden age and how it will be for the average soul? You have properly understood how to put a stop to suffering by becoming fully absorbed in Krishna consciousness. In this regard, kindly try to understand that you do not have to give up your material desires. Sanatan Dharma, the eternal occupational duty of surrendering ourselves at the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krishna, is always high tech. What we emphasize the most is how the individual can fully enter into the Golden Age right now by fully surrendering unto Lord Sri Krishna. There is a common misconception that spiritual enlightenment comes like a flash of lightening out the sky.
Sir, why is Lord Krishna's name greater, more powerful than Lord Vishnu's names though Lord Vishnu is source of Lord Krishna? Some people think that because the Lord first appeared as Vishnu within the prison of Kamsa and then took the form of baby Krishna that Vishnu is His original form.
Nobody wants to suffer, but nobody knows how to achieve permanent relief from their suffering.
If one regularly chants these holy names with love and devotion one will gradually experience the complete total reawakening of his or her eternal enlightened consciousness and become forever free from suffering.
I have been praying to Lord Ganesh, Lord Hanuman, Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Lord Rama and the Supreme Personality of Godhead Krishna since childhood. When you water the root of a tree, all the leaves and branches are automatically nourished. According to the Vedic scriptures, there is a clear distinction between the Supreme Lord and the demigods. You may worship any and all forms of the Supreme Lord as any worship of the Supreme Lord is effective for delivering us from this material existence. There is no reason to cheat yourself any longer out of the unlimited bliss and knowledge that is your constitutional birth right.
Even though the process of becoming more and more illusioned is extremely complicated, the process of becoming liberated is extremely simple.

Elle offre un apaisement du mental, une relaxation du corps, une vacuite de l’esprit, une paix interieure, des etats de conscience modifies, un eveil de la conscience, un chemin vers soi et les autres, une comprehension des lois systemiques. Why the World is a Jungle?The real meaning of science is to know things as they are, to separate truth from untruth. It's really sad that a being like yourself who has devoted his lifetime to educating the society at large literally goes unheeded. That nation which has long led the world in power and wealth is now experiencing great difficulty.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.I have seen in India and noticed that people think that Krishna is a Hindu god. Then you will experience the supreme mellifluousness, the topmost ambrosial sweetness, of reviving your original loving relationship with that supreme superstar, the ultimate magician, Krishna or Govinda.
Since I was surfing on the computer and I found myself with you and thinking that you are the proper person, I would like to ask you two questions to which I have not been able to find the answers. Foolishly denying the law of karma, action and reaction, we continue as frenzied marauders plundering the earth's resources turning this planet into more and more of a hell every day. In this way you will become a perfectly self-realized soul, and you will never return to material consciousness. If it were how, could there be so many beautiful, wondrous things to experience in this world? Due to the absence of spiritually enlightened governments these cheaters are allowed to continue with their nonsense without any restriction. Furthermore I have heard that diksha (initiation) is essentially given only for the sake of doing deity worship and is not very important for getting the desired result of Krishna prema (pure love of Krishna).
Instructions are most essential because if one simply takes initiation from the spiritual master but does not follow his instructions, he has no connection with the spiritual master. And how to explain that the Lord has mercifully revealed Himself as a personality in the Bhagavad-gita? Sadly, due to such a leadership vacuum, at the present moment the world has been plunged into an ever-increasingly chaotic quagmire. If by mistake any person takes initiation from any such guru and then later on realizes his mistake that he got initiation from a woman hunter or person engrossed in sense gratification, can that fellow go for initiation from a bona fide guru? It is simply due to ignorance of the self and it's relationship with the Supreme Self that there is so much suffering going on all over the world. But we can defeat the influence of the sun if we are always engaged in hearing, chanting, and remembering the transcendental glories of Lord Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
We have just returned to our home base, Bhaktivedanta Ashram in Austin, Texas USA, after completing another around-the-world lecture tour. This is verse is most profound because it describes how someone who is an ideal example of Krishna consciousness can inspire the world to take up Krishna consciousness.
I see that you have so much vigor and missionary spirit for spreading Krishna consciousness. Having severed our relationship with the Supreme Lord due to our foolishly envying Him, we have stranded ourselves here in this desolate place in the middle of nowhere, the material world.

Being here on top of a volcano, which is fortunately not currently active at the place we are staying, reminds me of the wonderful song of the great Vaisnava acharya, Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur in which he prays for that day when he will have the eruption of pure bhakti within his heart. Now we have arrived in Hawaii where I am giving a series of lectures on the transcendental science of Krishna consciousness.
In this state of consciousness upon leaving our present body we will definitely find ourselves waking up with the Lord and His eternal associates in the spiritual sky.
If we would like to attain the spiritual world, we can begin to prepare ourselves right now by spiritualizing all of our desires through the ancient science of bhakti yoga, Krishna consciousness.
But you should not become carried away by such happiness thinking that now you have become great. Theres is nothing more sweet and wonderful than being absorbed in hearing and chanting the Lord's glories in the association of His devotees. If thousands of us can constantly travel together all over the world for bringing in the Golden Era of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, it will be a new chapter in world history.
He blessed me with this knowledge and this pathway and instructed me that I should make this available to everyone throughout the world. By the grace of my spiritual master I have the same idealism, enthusiasm, and optimism that I had when I was a 22 years old youth. The famous Spanish explorer, Ponce de Leon, was searching for the fountain of youth, but he never found it. He says that He is the Kalki Avatar of Lord Krishna incarnated on this earth along with his wife.
According to the authorized revealed Vedic scriptures, Kalki Avatar will not appear for another 427,000 years. That you would criticize us for wasting time by executing the Yuga dharma, the prescribed duty for this age (chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra), sadly indicates how much you have been misguided by this so-called Bhagavan (incarnation of God) and his followers. But you have been very much misled and I hope that my words may help to get you back on the proper path. Therefore I always can understand and feel how my spiritual master is watching over me, blessing me, and guiding me at every minute. We must be careful to only take shelter of the lotus feet of the bona fide spiritual master otherwise our spiritual life will be a total disaster.
The temple building was originally constructed as a prayer house in 1922 and has now been returned to its original purpose by the Hare Krishna movement. This is what we all must aspire for, complete total surrender at the lotus feet of Krishna. The answer is that we have to associate with those who are already highly advanced on the self-realization path. The feelings of love and happiness simply became sweeter and sweeter and sweeter the more that we engaged in Krishna katha, the topics of the Lord.
If you stick tightly with me, I can take you back to the spiritual world where life is eternal, full of knowledge, and full of bliss. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, blessed me with the torchlight of ultimate knowledge and instructed me that I should travel all over this dark world to bring that torchlight of knowledge to all those who are blinded by ignorance. When we say that Krishna is the reservoir of all pleasure, that it is all blissful in Vaikuntha, and that life there is free from all miseries, from where did our desire come to live apart from Krishna? If He is all powerful, why does He not just clear our doubts and restore us to our original existence instead of suffering with us in the millions of lives that we take? The secret of success in the matter of fully realizing the knowledge that we are presenting is to become a devotee of Krishna like Arjuna. Krishna katha means the hearing and chanting of the transcendental name, fame, form, entourage, and paraphernalia of Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. In the spiritual world the Supreme Lord is called by many different names including the name Krishna. In the Vedas it is clearly described how Sanskrit is the spoken language of the spiritual world. We are sailing across the Gulf of Finland from Helsinki, Finland to Tallinn, Estonia on the cruise ship Nordlandia. They are so amazing that as soon as you take shelter of them the unlimitedly vast ocean of material existence shrinks down to the amount of water contained in hoof print of a calf and one can easily, effortlessly cross over this insurmountable ocean of illusion.
This is why Lord Krishna tells us to surrender at the lotus feet of the bona fide spiritual master. Since last Thursday we have been diving into a ocean of unending bliss here at the ISKCON center in Helsinki, Finland.
But you are having difficulty realizing how to make this a practical reality when you deal with your day to day existence.
Or if they prefer they can live a secular life working in the material society offering the fruits of their work to Krishna. The good news is that permanent relief is available for those who are desirous of having it.
Watering the leaves and branches will not be effective in giving the tree the water it needs.
Just like when we chant the Hare Krishna Mahamantra we are both worshiping Lord Krishna and Lord Rama. All you have to do is reawaken the dormant enlightened consciousness that has been sleeping within you for countless eons.
In this present disturbed age of Kali, when the lifespan is very short, the most suitable yoga system is the bhakti yoga system. That’s why finding the right intention will help you stay focused on your goal of keeping a consistent meditation practice. When he became blessed by the realization that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, his life became wonderfully and completely transformed.
America's leaders are not able to solve the crisis because they are too much caught up in fulfilling their own greedy desires.
He enlightens a few selected people by bestowing bhakti upon them, thus allowing them to return back to His eternal abode. Even though they see so many symptoms of the ever-increasing global crisis, such as crime, terrorism, drought, hunger, and disease, they are in complete ignorance regarding the root cause of the global crisis and are therefore not able to save the planet from disaster. My questions are: Who do you think will cause more damage to humanity, a scientist or an illiterate person?How do you feel better, wasting a moment of your life helping someone or dedicating all your time to Krishna?Thank you for your attention. So we must be always prepared for life's ultimate test by always being fully surrendered to Krishna with all of our thoughts, words, and deeds. In spite of all environmental propaganda to the contrary, being impelled by a passionate consumeristic spirit, the human society forges foolishly forward into ever-increasing degradation. Upon leaving your body at the time of death you will re-enter the Lord's eternal pastimes in the supremely splendorous spiritual sky. All you have to do is reconnect with the eternal brilliant reality, which is always splendorously shining far beyond the dense, dark clouds of illusion. I feel more confused, frustrated, unhappy after chanting, which kills my motivation to chant or associate with devotees. The splendor we sometimes experience gives us a hint or an indication of the underlying marvelous divine essence which pervades this experience that we call life. Thus it is very easy to find a guru who will take away your money and very difficult to find a guru who will take away your anxiety. Because we are unlawfully trying to enjoy what belongs to somebody else, we are criminals and are thus bound to remain imprisoned in the cycle of birth and death. From being a small child I was always interested in others before myself and when I look at what I really want it is for the world to be a better place. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, has ordered us to deliver everyone from illusion by teaching them what is their origin and how to perfect their relationship with that origin.
The Krishna consciousness movement can create a class of leaders to bring about a sublime golden era of universal peace and happiness on this planet, but unfortunately no one is listening to its spokesmen.
So how is this possible that Lord's potency is even unknown to the Lord Himself when He knows everything?
From this verse we can understand, that if we have any genuine love for our planetary brothers and sisters, we will constantly strive to the best of our abilities to be pure devotees of Krishna so that our examples will have a delivering impact on these poor souls who are suffering so much in the cycle of birth and death.
I am very confused at present and things are becoming more and more complicated in personal life. Even though such great acharyas already have bhakti fully manifested within their hearts, they teach us by their exemplary songs and prayers what should be our mood for advancing nicely in Krishna consciousness. Even though this place is famous for its heavenly atmosphere, we still see that the hellish material miseries reign supreme here, just like they do everywhere else.
I am trying to give Krishna consciousness to my eldest brother, but I think I am coming across as fanatical.
This is exactly the same teaching that Krishna gives in the Bhagavad-gita when He tells Arjuna to abandon all other considerations and simply do what Krishna wants him to do. You should rather offer that joyful energy back into the Lord's service to improve the quality of your service to Him more and more and more. Today I went with a group of devotees from our Riga temple to a recording studio here in Riga to record some kirtans and bhajans.
It is becoming more and more difficult to find a beautiful serene atmosphere in which one can feel peaceful and happy.
No matter how you cut it, this material world is a place of birth, death, old age, and disease. That realm is well within the reach of anyone who is willing to lay aside all preconceived notions and open their hearts to the enlightening teachings and practices clearly described in the essence of the Vedic wisdom, the Bhagavad-gita. Most of the so-called gurus present some concocted ideas which differ from the teachings of Lord Sri Krishna, the original spiritual master.
I just had a wonderful realization while I was attending the morning program at our nectarean temple in Riga, Latvia. The only difference is that now I am even more optimistic, idealistic, and enthusiastic than I was then. By the grace of my spiritual master I have discovered the true fountain of youth: Krishna consciousness. He is doing miracles and giving initiation to the aspirants and removes all the vasanas (desires) and enlightening them all over the world.
Now that we have achieved the human form we are meant to evolve to the next step in evolution. For example: My guru might not know what is beyond the wall of his room but Krishna knows and sees everything. We did the puja for Sri Sri Radha Damodar, went to the TV station for my live appearance, and returned to the temple just in time for to attend Srila Prabhupada's Guru Puja and for me to give the morning Srimad Bhagavatam Class. People of all persuasions are invited to come and take advantage of the sublime spiritual atmosphere of the temple to pray for peace and upliftment.
When the time finally came for us to leave we felt as if we had been eternally living with the devotees of Sillamae engaged in the relishing the sweet mellows of Krishna consciousness. I was immediately reminded of that sun which is even more brilliant than the sun which rises every morning.
In this material world people take sense gratification as the ultimate goal of existence, but yet they can only enjoy their senses for a brief few minutes.
The word Allah is the original and personal name of the Supreme One adopted by Himself in His Yogamaya.
Also your statement that no one referred to the Supreme Lord as Krishna before His birth is completely false. It was spoken in the spiritual world even before this cosmic manifestation came into being. It is a three-and-half hour cruise in a private cabin which affords me a good opportunity for focusing well on reading and writing.
The bona fide guru is that person who only speaks according to the authoritative Vedic wisdom. This is a fact because Sanatan Dharma exists in its pure form completely beyond the realm of time.
The way spiritual enlightenment happens is just like the gradual rising of the sun within the sky of one's heart.
This is why Krishna states in the Bhagavad-gita that we should give up all other duties and simply fully surrender ourselves to Him.
But demigod worship is described by Lord Krishna as the activity of those who have lost their intelligence.
Through this connecting therapy gradually one is restored to one's original completely pure nature.
Through the system anyone in any situation can reawaken their dormant enlightened consciousness simply by chanting the holy names of God.
This distinguishes him from the animals, who have no consciousness beyond eating, sleeping, mating, and defending.
If our minds are wandering somewhere else during our japa, it will be difficult to remember Krishna throughout the day, and our day will be a struggle. What they do not know is that Lakshmi, the goddess of fortune, always remains where Lord Narayana or Krishna is being purely worshipped and does not permanently remain where her Lord Narayana is not being purely worshipped. He is Jagannatha.If Krishna was a Hindu god, He would be called Hindunatha (the lord of the Hindus), not Jagannatha (the lord of the universe), as He is properly designated. If we are going to ever have peace and prosperity for everyone on this planet, we must transcend the platform of greed and come to the enlightened platform of Krishna consciousness, where everything is seen as the property of God and everything is utilized fully in His service. In the vast span of the history of the universe there has never been such a thing as something coming out of nothing. They do not have scientific knowledge of the Supreme Person who is the source of our existence, and thus they do not know how to live in a state of perfect harmony with Him. In this way, if we are always absorbed in Krishna consciousness, we will be impervious to death.
The difficulty is that we have forgotten that true happiness comes from giving, not from taking.
If you are tired of the material miseries, you should take full advantage of the airplane that Krishna or God has given you and get trained up how to fly your airplane. Beyond the delusional quagmire of this miserable material existence resides the most beautiful, wondrous, all-powerful, all-loving person named Krishna, who is beckoning you to return to your original, all-blissful, all-knowing identity in His eternal pastimes.
Those who are thoughtful do not dedicate their lives in the vain pursuit of temporary sense gratification. Someone told me that in the month of July the full moon was a very important event for the Hindus. Therefore all spiritual seekers should be very cautious before accepting a spiritual master.
Your unworthy servant, Charan--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Answer: Initiation is Absolutely RequiredIt is true that our disciplic line is based on siksha or instructions. From the date of initiation by the spiritual master, the connection between Krishna and a person cultivating Krishna consciousness is established. How can we claim to be the owners of anything when we come into this world with nothing, and we also leave with nothing? At the present moment the popular theory is that life has evolved from a random combination of chemicals, which originally exploded out of nothing.
The world population and its leaders are totally caught in the maddened pursuit of wanton sense gratification practically on the level of wild animals.
This is the sort of spiritual intelligence that I look for in a candidate before I accept someone as my disciple.You should associate with as many bona fide spiritual masters as possible through attending their lectures, hearing their recorded lectures, reading their writings, and corresponding with them, just as you are doing with me. This was quite strange because when I am on the road I always know where I am immediately upon awakening. Therefore, if we are his actual followers, we will embrace this order as our very life and soul, just as Srila Prabhupada embraced as his very life and soul the order he received from his spiritual master to spread Krishna consciousness to the English speaking world. The Buddhist nirvana takes one to a marginal position on the border between the material world and the spiritual world.
For the self-realized souls, however, it is the most exciting moment when one is granted the opportunity for promotion into the spiritual world, that place where birth, death, old age, and disease are conspicuous by their absence.
If we will carefully and diligently practice the bhakti yoga science our promotion into the spiritual world is guaranteed. In this way you will be heading solidly back to your original existence, which is eternal, full of bliss, and full of knowledge. It is was a very uplifting and purifying experience to be intensely absorbed for three hours with a group of devotees in chanting and hearing the glories of Lord Sri Krishna and the process of devotional service. Lord Jesus Christ was crucified for his sincere attempt to do the highest good for the suffering humanity and Hari Das Thakur was severely beaten in 22 market places for the same reason. Therefore learned and thoughtful men go within to connect with the transcendental dimension situated far, far beyond time and space.
By coming into contact with the bona fide spiritual master, the bringer of perfect wisdom from that amazing transcendental realm, and by submissively inquiring from him and serving him with love, we are blessed with perfect guidance of how to permanently enter into that transcendental existence never to suffer again in the world of birth, death, old age, and disease. It's always a wonderful treat to stay with the Krishna conscious college students at their center here (pictured below). When Lord Krishna is within the reach of every one here why chanting of Hare Krishna Mantra 16 rounds every day and wasting time? We are meant to become spiritually perfected beings and escape the cycle of birth and death once for all. Some of the students were so enlivened by our presentation that after the program they followed us back to our preaching center for further instructions. If he concocts his own message or presents a message which is not in accordance with the Vedic literatures, he is not bona fide and should be rejected. The show's host Kaileen Magi asked very nice questions that gave me the perfect opportunity to explain the process of Krishna consciousness in a nutshell. It has been my residence for three days and also the site for a series of lectures I have been giving on the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam. In the company of such exalted transcendental personalities our dormant Krishna consciousness is easily awakened.

Unfortunately they are mostly filled up with books which glorify the flickering tidings of the material existence and thus keep the readers entangled in the cycle of birth and death. Why did the question come into our mind to be apart from Him when we were always experiencing the ecstatic pleasures of His blissful mercy?
Consequently they are often frustrated and bewildered by their lack of permanent happiness.
It is badly misunderstood that Allah word is adopted by Muslims as that name was being used before the birth of Muhammad by the people. And since any one of His millions of names validly designates Him, we can also accept that there is no God except for Allah. But in this regard kindly note that in order to be able to do so you first need to get on it yourself. He does not introduce any incarnations of God that are not predicted in the Vedic literatures for the purpose of misleading the innocent public. There is a wonderful crew of devotees here under the guidance of Sriman Tattvavada Prabhu, a former Finnish military officer. But both paths should be carefully tread under the guidance of the bona fide spiritual master. Therefore it is just as fresh and new now in 2007 as it was 5,000 years ago when Krishna revealed it to Arjuna.
If ones seriously sticks to the ultimate self-realization path, the bhakti yoga path, by remaining steadily engaged in Krishna consciousness, he will experience the factual gradual reawakening of his original enlightened consciousness.
One should simply has to take advantage of the mercy of the Lord and become delivered once and for all from all the sufferings of material existence. The demigods are highly elevated devotees of the Lord who serve the Lord within this material world.
However if you are not able to do this, you may continue to worship the demigods for the purpose of begging them to bless you that you can fully surrender yourself to Lord Krishna. Rather it is the cleansing away of the artificialities that have been imposed and accumulating within the mind for millions and billions of lifetimes. However, when, as at the present moment, non-verifiable, fanciful speculations are marketed as science, we've got a serious problem in the human society. But if we fix our minds nicely on on the mahamantra during our japa meditation, it will be easy to remember Krishna throughout the day, and we'll have a really blissful day. If the leaders of the USA want their country to remain strong and influential in the world, they must now engage themselves and their country in the service of Lord Narayana or Krishna.
Until then all attempts for solving the world's problems will prove to be utterly ineffective and a useless waste of time. And if they are not Krishna conscious, their life's activities will simply be a disturbance to the human society.Helping someone means to give them Krishna consciousness. I was told that Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu after concluding His divine pastimes on this earth planet left by entering into a Deity. They instead focus their energies on attaining the beatitude which comes from being fully attuned to the divine in all times, places, and circumstances.
Can you tell me why?Christiane--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Answer: The Appearance Day of Srila VyasadevaI am happy that you are appreciating my humble attempt to spread Krishna consciousness all over the world. Without the knowledge of Krishna's teachings purely passed down from master to disciple there would be no meaning to the initiation ceremony.
When people speak of attaining enlightenment I have always been clear I didn't come here for that in this lifetime.
It's no wonder that people are so bewildered and frustrated when such an empty, meaningless and dogmatic cosmology is being crammed down their throats. One should only use logical explanations when speaking to those who lack faith in scripture or who are dogmatic that their scripture is the only scripture. We pray for that day when they will decide to start listening to the enlightened spiritual masters who purely represent the Krishna consciousness movement. From this association you can see which of these gurus is giving you the most mercy and the best guidance based on the Bhagavad-gita as it is for becoming a pure devotee of Lord Krishna. This border is sometimes referred to as the Causal Ocean and sometimes referred to as Mahesh Dhama.
Since people here are envious, no matter what you do someone will always be there to criticize you. Isn't it Lord Caitanya's wish for everyone to reconnect with Krishna?Thank you for your time and assistance. He taught the principles of bhakti in a very elementary way suited to those to whom he was teaching. But because the devotee is part and parcel of Krishna, he naturally becomes pleased when Krishna is pleased. Even though we claim to be a highly advanced civilization with our ever-more sophisticated technology, the sad reality is that the world is becoming more and more chaotic. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, I am living in paradise at every minute, and this will continue getting ever-increasingly sweeter and sweeter for all of eternity. Why are you making a world tour for to spread Krishna consciousness when Krishna Himself is physically available here? I am speaking to you with sincere love in my heart for helping you to become free from the cycle of birth and death. The bhakti yoga system, Krishna consciousness, when practiced properly under the guidance of the bona fide spiritual master will allow us to do just that. She also asked me about the e-course, which enabled me to announce to the huge viewing audience how to sign up for our course. Such temples serve as an oasis fort those who are dying of thirst in the vast desert of material existence. We will find ourselves blissfully and naturally engaged in the activities of liberated souls, such as diving deeply into hearing and chanting the transcendental glories of Lord Sri Krishna. If we utilize it properly, we are delivered to our original liberated position in the spiritual sky. When Lord Sri Krishna departed from this planet 5,000 years He remained in this world in the form of the Srimad Bhagavatam to dissipate the dark ignorance and illusion of this age of Kali so that people could become truly happy.
When our portion of the earth is situated opposite the sun, we cannot see it, but it is still shining.
There is such a warm family feeling here that whenever I return here I feel like I have come home. He will revive his original identity that he once had before he fell into material existence.
We are absolutely delighted by his profound realization that he is not God, that He is instead the eternal servant of Krishna or God, and we wish him the very best on his pathway to spiritual perfection.
We are humbly begging you to please assist our mission in whatever way you can by helping us get this message out to the world.
So the essential point is that you create what sort of day you will have every day by how you chant your rounds first thing in the morning.
He clearly states in the Bhagavad-gita that He is the Supreme Lord, the source of all material and spiritual worlds, that everything emanates from Him. He is impartially offering everyone the opportunity to become His pure devotees and return to His eternal abode. It's no wonder then that this planet is become more and more of hell every day as evidenced by the recent shootings in Norway on Utoya island.
Regarding what you perceive as my greatness, kindly note that I am nothing more than a humble servant of my spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Instead of trying to enjoy His property as our own, if we will instead engage everything in His service, we will give Him unlimited satisfaction. So my question is: Can I be out in the world making a difference as a Krishna devotee, or do I have to start withdrawing from the world to be His devotee? You must be careful when teaching others this sublime science not to cause them to blaspheme the Vedic scriptures.Not every divine person is the same.
Although this nirvana gives relief from the sufferings of material existence, it does not take one into the awakening of unlimited spiritual bliss and knowledge in a loving relationship with the Supreme Person.
And if we desire the supreme perfectional consciousness of pure love of God, that's what we will get in an eternal life, full of bliss, and full of knowledge.
Shivashini--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Answer: Connect with their Inner FaithfulnessThis instruction means that we should reach out to the faithless persons in such a way that they develop faith. Such photographs are rare to be found in our daily news papers and magazines, which only advertise about happiness. And this in spite of an aging body that is gradually deteriorating and will sooner or later drop dead!
Displaying his unequalled effulgence and riding with great speed he will kill the demons by the millions. Immediately new subscribers joined my course from all over Estonia and they continued joining all day.
Wherever the holy names of the Lord are being regularly chanted that place becomes transformed into the spiritual world. Therefore when the Sillamae devotees informed me that I was scheduled to give some publicly advertised lectures at the Sillamae public library I was delighted. He gives His love to the child and if the child so chooses, he can reciprocate with the love of the parent by loving him back. Even when I am not physically here, I am connecting myself with this transcendental abode by remembrance. This is the special mercy of Lord Sri Krishna upon that person who is sincerely trying to surrender to Him.
If you are chanting for your purification, you should accept the recommended mantra for this age, the Hare Krishna mantra. Krishna's authoritative words should be sufficient to establish that He is the lord of all. I was told that Krishna got shot by a hunter and died and His body was just lying in the ground.
It is only when we acknowledge that only Krishna is the actual enjoyer and do everything for His pleasure that we will taste genuine happiness. I am not interested in any spiritual practice that involves removing myself and withdrawing from the world. Sometimes the Supreme Lord personally comes, and sometimes He sends his confidential servitors as saktyavesh avatars to preach on His behalf. So in this way His unlimited consciousness is never able to keep up with His ever-expanding potency.
The supreme nirvana, in which one awakens the feelings of pure love of God within one's heart, takes one into a solid permanent identity in the spiritual world as an eternal association of the Lord.
It is a fact that simply by hearing about Krishna from a devotee everyone becomes blessed with the seed of the revival of their original enlightened consciousness. If your so-called Kalki was the actual Kalki this would be the topmost news story on the planet earth.
And whoever takes advantage of such an elevated spiritual atmosphere becomes transported into immortality.
Krishna does not force us because if we were forced, we would only be prisoners in the spiritual world without any love for the Lord. Their most merciful Lordships Sri Sri Gaura Nitai preside here over Finland bestowing unlimited mercy upon the Finns. So how can you feed the covering of the self while you simultaneously starve the real self within? This doesn’t seem to make sense to me because Krishna's body is spiritual and whenever He appears in the material world He appears in His spiritual body and not in a material body.
So instead of trying to taste happiness from your chanting try to chant like a child crying out for its mother to invoke the merciful blessings of Krishna.
I cannot take credit for whatever good qualities you may see in me since if I have any good qualities at all they are simply a reflection of Srila Prabhupada's unlimitedly great saintly qualities. He must be coming in an unbroken line of disciplic succession from the original spiritual master, Lord Sri Krishna.2. Ashi--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Answer: Gita is the Perfection of Vedic WisdomBhagavad-gita knowledge describing the form and personality of God is the perfection of Vedic knowledge. It was only after taking shelter of the lotus feet of the bona fide spiritual master that it became a practical reality. That I have only heard about him from you and not from the news media clearly indicates that this is not the real Kalki Avatar.
So I can't understand why Krishna's body was lying in the ground after He supposedly got shot and left. In this way Krishna will be very pleased with your chanting, and you will taste unlimited happiness. Therefore I accept your appreciation and pass it on to my beloved spiritual master.This year the full moon day in July is significant because it is the appearance day of Srila Vyasadeva, the literary incarnation of God.
He must present the teachings of his predecessor gurus without any addition or subtraction.3. Although the Vedas describe nirakara, the formless, impersonal conception of God as well as the personal, with-form conception of God, when the Vedic wisdom says that God has no form, this means that He has no material form. This confirms the fact that Krishna consciousness is dynamic and ever-expanding; it is not static, even for Krishna Himself, what to speak of for His devotees. Since Lord Caitanya has ordered us to tell everyone about Krishna and since the sastras prohibit preaching to the faithless, we have to present Krishna consciousness to the people in such a loving, intelligent non-fanatical way that everyone will experience a reawakening of their original faithful nature. There are so many religions in the world, which one to follow if any?" What is the answer to this question?
That platform is attained and maintained by complete, total absorption in Krishna consciousness. Those who want to become His devotees can easily do so simply by following His instructions in the Bhagavad-gita. Furthermore Lord Caitanya’s disappearance from this world is so mystical and extraordinary, why then would Krishna leave this world in such a normal way. He must be solidly fixed in the Absolute Truth and thus be fully absorbed in Krishna consciousness 24 hours daily.4. Any attempt to liberate others as long as you are not liberated with not be successful in spite of your good intentions.
In this way we can follow Lord Caitanya's order to tell everyone about Krishna and simultaneously follow the sastric prohibition against preaching to the faithless.Of course, if someone is blasphemous and we are not able penetrate their envious shell, we should not try to tell them about Krishna because this will only increase their venom.
Krishna appeared in such a wondrous manner in the jail cell why then would He opt for such an ordinary way to leave? He is worshipable and the spiritual master is also worshipable because he is the representative of Srila Vyasadeva. He should be a living embodiment of the scriptures in all of his thoughts, words, and deeds.
He is a liberated soul who fully absorbs himself 24 hours daily in doing the highest welfare of delivering all of the illusioned souls, who are suffering endlessly in the cycle of birth and death, back to their original home in the all-blissful spiritual sky. I told him he wouldn't be able to identify harmful information because he has not yet seen good. You can spread the word to others by distributing Srila Prabhupada's books, by inviting people to your local ISKCON center, by telling people about our e-course, or simply by telling everybody that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. So these people could argue how is Krishna's leaving this planet by being shot by a hunter different than Said Baba leaving by dying in a hospital. However, the more appropriate and personal worship for a particular spiritual master is to worship him on the actual day of his appearance in this world. Kindly see if you can assist us in any or all of these above three ways.Regarding our feeling despondent and helpless, under the present circumstances it would be quite natural for us to feel this way.
Our argument would be that God doesn’t die in a hospital from organ failure and their argument would be that God doesn’t die by being shot.
This worship is known as Vyasa Puja, the worship of Vyasadeva, because by worshipping the spiritual master who represents Vyasadeva, we are automatically also worshipping Srila Vyasadeva. But by always remembering the unlimited mercy of the all-powerful Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krishna, we always feel faith and hope that our efforts to deliver the world will not go in vain. In fact, according to the great Vaisnava acarya, Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, the hunter's arrow merely touched the Lord's lotus foot and did not pierce it since the Lord's limbs are composed of eternity, knowledge and bliss.
Our interest is to enlighten others with the knowledge of their real identity so they can become free from all suffering. Since Balarama had just departed for the spiritual world, Krishna took this pastime with the hunter as an opportune moment to wind up His earthly pastimes and return to His eternal abode in His transcendental spiritual body. It is due to ignorance only that the human civilization is descending into an ever-increasingly miserable quagmire of delusion.He said that my statement sounds like an ultimatum. An ultimatum is a final demand whose rejection will end negotiations and cause a resort to force or other direct stringent action. We are simply stating the fact that as long as people remain ignorant of their actual identity they will never achieve the perfection of their existence. We are not putting a gun to their heads with the ultimatum that they must become Krishna conscious or we will blow their brains out.
We are simply giving people the opportunity to attain unlimited peace, love, and happiness by realizing the Absolute Truth regarding the individual self and its relationship with the Supreme Self.
If he has a problem with our offer to help people achieve genuine, undying happiness, that is his problem.
