All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Please accept my humble obeisances

Hare Krsna!

So – as you can ALL see now there is ZERO defence from Antardvipa Prabhu on the BOGUS CONDITIONED SOUL GURUS manufactured by ISKCON’S GBC by REPLACING the BONA FIDE Diksa Guru Srila Prabhupada and the Ritvik System as per his directive July 9th 1977 . Furthermore, the mantra received from those bogus gurus is USELESS—- and they take their followers to hell. They just want to make others their SLAVES and EXPLOIT them. They are OPPORTUNISTS:

760628bj.nv              Conversations
Pusta Krsna: Some of them will say some things that Krsna says, but they’ll take from other places also. What is the position of such persons?
Prabhupada: HE’S MOST DANGEROUS. HE’S MOST DANGEROUS. HE IS OPPORTUNIST. He’s finding out customer, something here… According to the customer he is giving something, as the customers will be pleased. So he is not guru.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Devotee (3): In regard to worshiping arcā-vigraha form, you have explained that if one receives a mantra from a spiritual master who is not bona fide, that mantra has no effect. So I would like to ask if one is worshiping a Deity AND HIS SPIRITUAL MASTER IS NOT BONA FIDE, so that Deity cannot be considered the Supreme Lord?

Prabhupāda: WELL, FIRST OF ALL, THING IS IF THE SPIRITUAL MASTER IS NOT BONA FIDE, HOW HIS MANTRA CAN BE BONA FIDE? YOUR STATEMENT IS CONTRADICTORY. IF YOU SAY THE SPIRITUAL MASTER IS NOT BONA FIDE, THEN HOW HIS MANTRA BECOMES BONA FIDE? IF HE IS BONA FIDE, THEN HIS MANTRA IS BONA FIDE. [Read More…]

Hare Krsna Prabhus and Maharajas,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

About 3 years ago I discovered an ominous lump in my breast. It wasn’t very big, but I realized that the debilitating lethargy I’d been feeling was probably due to cancer. I have zero faith in the American medical industry and have attended many memorial services for friends and family who put their faith in the AMA chemo/radiation “cures”. My friends who opted for alternative treatment are mostly still living. So I decided to implement alternative protocols to deal with my condition.

I have been to a doctor who referred me for immediate surgery, but after doing research about my symptoms I’m realizing that all the medical industry can offer me is a series of horrible chemo and radiation, guaranteeing that I’ll probably be too sick to continue my service of caring for cows and promoting our simple living, high thinking lifestyle. Fortunately I have been able to get relief from the lethargy by taking chlorine dioxide which puts extra oxygen in my system to fight the mitochondrial disease, but nothing I’ve tried seems to be able to attack the tumor.

Srila Prabhupada re Advent of Bhagavad Gita – Gita Jayanti

śrī-bhagavān uvāca
imaṁ vivasvate yogaṁ
proktavān aham avyayam
vivasvān manave prāha
manur ikṣvākave ‘bravīt
SYNONYMS
śrī bhagavān uvāca—the Supreme Personality of Godhead said; imam—this; vivasvate—unto the sun-god; yogam—the science of one’s relationship to the Supreme; proktavān—instructed; aham—I; avyayam—imperishable; vivasvān—Vivasvān (the sun-god’s name); manave—unto the father of mankind (of the name Vaivasvata); prāha—told; manuḥ—the father of mankind; ikṣvākave—unto King Ikṣvāku; abravīt—said.
TRANSLATION
The Blessed Lord said: I instructed this imperishable science of yoga to the sun-god, Vivasvān, and Vivasvān instructed it to Manu, the father of mankind, and Manu in turn instructed it to Ikṣvāku.
PURPORT
Herein we find the history of the Bhagavad-gītā traced from a remote time when it was delivered to the royal order, the kings of all planets. This science is especially meant for the protection of the inhabitants and therefore the royal order should understand it in order to be able to rule the citizens and protect them from the material bondage to lust. Human life is meant for cultivation of spiritual knowledge, in eternal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and the executive heads of all states and all planets are obliged to impart this lesson to the citizens by education, culture and devotion. In other words, the executive heads of all states are intended to spread the science of Kṛṣṇa consciousness so that the people may take advantage of this great science and pursue a successful path, utilizing the opportunity of the human form of life.
In this millennium, the sun-god is known as Vivasvān, the king of the sun, which is the origin of all planets within the solar system. In the Brahma-saṁhitā it is stated:
yac-cakṣur eṣa savitā sakala-grahāṇāṁ
rājā samasta-sura-mūrttir aśeṣa-tejāḥ
yasyājñayā bhramati sambhṛta-kālacakro
govindam ādi-puruṣaṁ tam ahaṁ bhajāmi
“Let me worship,” Lord Brahmā said, “the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Govinda [Kṛṣṇa], who is the original person and under whose order the sun, which is the king of all planets, is assuming immense power and heat. The sun represents the eye of the Lord and traverses its orbit in obedience to His order.”
The sun is the king of the planets, and the sun-god (at present of the name Vivasvān) rules the sun planet, which is controlling all other planets by supplying heat and light. He is rotating under the order of Kṛṣṇa, and Lord Kṛṣṇa originally made Vivasvān His first disciple to understand the science of Bhagavad-gītā. The Gītā is not, therefore, a speculative treatise for the insignificant mundane scholar but is a standard book of knowledge coming down from time immemorial. In the Mahābhārata (Śānti-parva 348.51-52) we can trace out the history of the Gītā as follows:
tretā-yugādau ca tato vivasvān manave dadau
manuś ca loka-bhṛty-arthaṁ sutāyekṣvākave dadau
ikṣvākuṇā ca kathito vyāpya lokān avasthitāḥ

 

“In the beginning of the Tretā-yuga [millennium] this science of the relationship with the Supreme was delivered by Vivasvān to Manu. Manu, being the father of mankind, gave it to his son Mahārāja Ikṣvāku, the King of this earth planet and forefather of the Raghu dynasty in which Lord Rāmacandra appeared. Therefore, Bhagavad-gītā existed in the human society from the time of Mahārāja Ikṣvāku.”

Russian Cows Fitted With Virtual-Reality Headsets

“The cow is the most important animal for developing the human body to perfection. The body can be maintained by any kind of foodstuff, but cow’s milk is particularly essential for developing the finer tissues of the human brain so that one can understand the intricacies of transcendental knowledge. A civilized man is expected to live on foodstuffs comprising fruits, vegetables, grains, sugar and milk. The bull helps in the agricultural process of producing grain, etc., and thus in one sense the bull is the father of humankind, whereas the cow is the mother, for she supplies milk to human society. A civilized man is therefore expected to give all protection to the bulls and cows.”

(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.5.7, Purport)

“The grass is greener in a virtual world.

That’s what Moscow region farmers were aiming for when they fitted their dairy cows with virtual-reality headsets to test their milk production. [Read More…]

The three kinds of happiness

This information is in the Nectar of Devotion, chapter 1:

Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī has analyzed the different sources of happiness. He has divided happiness into three categories, which are: 1) happiness derived from material enjoyment, 2) happiness derived from identifying with the Supreme Brahman and 3) happiness derived from Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

In Tantra-śāstra, Lord Śiva speaks to his wife, Satī, in this way: “My dear wife, a person who has surrendered to the lotus feet of Govinda and who has developed Kṛṣṇa’s pure consciousness, can receive easily all the perfections desired by the impersonalists; and beyond this, he can enjoy the happiness attained by pure devotees. ”

Happiness derived from pure devotional service is the highest because it is eternal. But the happiness derived from material perfection or from being understood as Brahman is inferior because it is temporary. There is no way to prevent one from falling from material happiness, and there is even every chance of falling from spiritual happiness derived from identifying with the impersonal Brahman.

1976 Book Scores Conversation

“Total Back to Godhead magazines, about 7,000,000. Total small books is 740,000. Total medium books is 319,000. Total other titles: 280,000. Then total hardbound books: 1,007,000. So the total literatures sold last year is 9,076,280 literatures. Nine million. This is just English.”

Ramesvara: This is the total sales. For the year 1976. It lists… The first section lists all the Caitanya-caritamrtas title by title, all seventeen volumes. So last year we sold 55,000 copies of Caitanya-caritamrta.

Prabhupada: All parts.

University Lecture, Calcutta

“God supplies you everything. God is supplying food to the elephant who is eating at a time forty kilos of food, and He’s supplying to the ants also”

Prabhupada, University Lecture, Calcutta, January 29, 1973: […] Otherwise, I have not come to teach you something invented by me. I have come to teach you about Krishna consciousness. And if you are not interested in Krishna consciousness, then you must be amongst these four classes of men: duskrtinah, mudhah, naradhama, mayayapahrta-jnana. This is my first reply.

So far economic condition is concerned, then I may say, eko yo bahunam vidadhati kaman. God supplies you everything. God is supplying food to the elephant who is eating at a time forty kilos of food, and He’s supplying to the ants also.

O MY DEAR FELLOW SOULS

O my dear fellow souls
only the truth we must know
from Whom does everything flow
what must we do where must we go.

We must be careful in everything we do
we must know whats false and know whats true
for only in this human form we may seek
just who we are and our love eternally deep.

So I must tell you what I found
when I cried out to know life’s purpose
I found the very guru of the universe
who showed me we are God’s eternal servants. [Read More…]

How I Came To Krishna Consciousness

Back in the days when I used to take drugs, I thought about spiritual advancement a lot.

(by Acarya dasa)  — I wasn’t alone, and still I am not, but in the company of my good old friend Vaisnava Thakura Prabhu. At that time, his name was Wilfried and my name was Alex. We were really exhausted after so many years of hard endeavor to enjoy on the material platform. I used to make electronic music in our former home in Austria, and we went to electronic music parties, touching the limits of our ability to enjoy, hiding behind the masks of illusory material identities, and always searching, trying to find out who we really were and how we could become happy

Mistaking the mind, which is an invisible material element, as spiritual, we tried to explore its depths.

Srila Prabhupada’s Divine Departure for Goloka Vrindavan


By Krsna’s mercy I was allowed to serve his pure devotee Srila Prabhupada during his last year on this planet. My long cherished desire was finally fulfilled.

I went to Mayapura for the Gaura Pournima festival in the Spring of 1977. There I met Upendra Prabhu who I had known from the Hawaii Temple. He was arranging some flower vases in the hallway outside of Srila Prabhupada’s room.

When he finished he told me to take the vases into Srila Prabhupada’s room. I was a little nervous and hesitated at the door when all of the sudden Upendra pushed me inside. Srila Prabhupada was alone sitting behind his desk.

I chanted in New York in a place called Tompkins Square Park

Reporter: Have the real gurus like yourself ever tried to put a stop to the false gurus–that is, put pressure on them to put them out of business, so to speak?

Srila Prabhupada: No, that is not my purpose. I started my movement simply by chanting Hare Krsna. I chanted in New York in a place called Tompkins Square Park, and soon people began to come to me. In this way, the Krsna consciousness movement gradually developed. Many accepted, and many did not accept. Those who are fortunate have accepted.

Reporter: Don’t you feel that people are suspicious because of their experience with fake gurus? If you went to a quack dentist and he broke your tooth, you might be suspicious about going to another dentist.

He Lives Forever (Srila Prabhupada Tirobhava Tithi – disappearance day)

November 14, 1977. The day our world stopped. The phone call came. Prabhupada had left his body.

Words can’t describe the devastation that we all felt. Hearts broke and tears flowed everywhere. The universe was in sorrow. The pure devotee of Krishna had left the planet. We had lost our master, our protector and our ever well-wisher. Suddenly the universe became dark and cold, and all hope instantly fled from our lives. How could we go on without Prabhupada? It was inconceivable.

No longer could we jump in a van or board an airplane to go see His Divine Grace in person. No longer came the reports of Prabhupada’s latest preaching success or his most recent instructions to the devotees. No longer did the anticipation of greeting Prabhupada at the airport or watching him bow down before the Deities shiver in our hearts. No longer did we have the same youthful confidence that our movement could save the world. [Read More…]

Worshiping Govardhana Hill | KRSNA Book

While engaged with the brāhmaṇas who were too involved in the performance of Vedic sacrifices, Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma also saw that the cowherd men were preparing a similar sacrifice in order to pacify Indra, the King of heaven, who is responsible for supplying water. As stated in the Caitanya-caritāmṛta, a devotee of Kṛṣṇa has strong and firm faith in the understanding that if he is simply engaged in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and Kṛṣṇa’s transcendental loving service, then he is freed from all other obligations. A pure devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa doesn’t have to perform any of the ritualistic functions enjoined in the Vedas; nor is he required to worship any demigods. Being a devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa, one is understood to have performed all kinds of Vedic rituals and all kinds of worship to the demigods. Just by performing the Vedic ritualistic ceremonies or worshiping the demigods, one does not develop devotional service for Kṛṣṇa but one who is engaged fully in the service of the Lord has already finished all Vedic injunctions.

Kṛṣṇa ordered a stop to all such activities by His devotees, for He wanted to firmly establish exclusive devotional service during His presence in Vṛndāvana. Kṛṣṇa knew that the cowherd men were preparing for the Indra sacrifice beause He is the omniscient Personality of Godhead, but as a matter of etiquette, He began to inquire with great honor and submission from elder personalities like Mahārāja Nanda and others.

The Compassionate Avatara of Kali-yuga

Karunaya-avatirnah Kalau – Part 1
By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami — Issue 1, March 1956 (Translated from Sri Gaudiya Patrika)

Srila Rupa Gosvami is the confidential servant of Sri Gaurasundara, the most munificent avatara who mercifully appeared in the age of Kali (karunaya-avatirnah kalau). Who but such an intimate servant can understand which mood appears in the heart of Mahaprabhu at what moment, and how that mood augments the hladini-sakti (internal pleasure potency) that resides there?

No one has the power to understand the deep and diverse pastimes of Sriman Mahaprabhu without bathing in the dust of the lotus feet of such an antaranga (intimate, internal) associate. Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami Prabhu always prayerfully contemplated the lotus feet of those internal devotees, and in this way he proceeded in his service without the slightest obstruction. He concludes every chapter of Sri Caitanya-caritamrta with:

Prabhupada: I am greatly pleased to see this collection of songs

Songs of the Vaisnava Acaryas

“The International Society for Krishna Consciousness was established in New York in the year 1966. After my arrival in the United States in September of 1965, I personally underwent a difficult struggle, and in 1966 I rented a storefront and apartment at 26 Second Avenue. When ISKCON was incorporated, a boy named Chuck Barnett joined me, along with a few others, to form the nucleus for the institution’s future development. At this time I used to chant the Hare Krsna maha-mantra underneath a tree in Tompkin’s Square Park in New York. Sriman Barnett and another boy, Bruce, were the first to begin dancing in front of me, and others in the audience joined them. The New York Times published a report of this, with our picture and a headline declaring that I was attracting the younger generation to the Hare Krsna movement.

Later both Chuck and Bruce, along with others, became my initiated disciples, and still later, in 1970, both took sannyasa, receiving the names Acyutananda Svami and Brahmananda Svami. Now Brahmananda is preaching in Africa, and Acyutananda is preaching in India.

When I became sick in 1967, I left the United States and returned to India. Sriman Acyutananda could not remain separated from me, and therefore he joined me in Vrindavana when I was staying there. Since then, Acyutananda Svami has worked very hard in India. He has preached extensively in Calcutta and other parts of Bengal, he has learned how to sing in Bengali and play mridanga like an expert professional, and now he has compiled this book of Bengali songs with English explanations.
