The Future Standard For Srila Prabhupada’s Books

BY: PRAHLADA-NRSIMHA DAS

Oct 27, 2012 — USA (Prabhupada News) — All Jayadvaita and Dravida and company’s hard work in changing Srila Prabhupada’s books will accomplish only one thing. It will establish a future standard for Srila Prabhupada’s books. A standard that anything which seems (to a conditioned soul’s faulty mind and senses) as illogical, grammatically incorrect or able to be improved upon must be changed.

Even the covers and art must be changed on a regular basis to further reinforce this standard. This will over time devalue Srila Prabhupada’s authorized books and people will gradually loose faith in both Srila Prabhupada and his books. It will establish an understanding that Srila Prabhupada and his books are full of faults and thus not absolute truth.

People will view Srila Prabhupada’s books to be on the same level as any other book that is subject to the interpretation, addition and subtraction of a conditioned soul. They will be looked at as material things, not as transcendental Deities worshipable by all.

How to Totally Demolish Mayesvara dasa’s Bogus Flat-Earth Theory

Flat-Earth or Globular Earth

How to Totally Demolish Mayesvara dasa’s Bogus Flat-Earth Theory

BY: MAYESVARA DASA
Jun 26, 2019 —IRELAND (SUN)

The following is a reply to Rajasekhara dasa’s article, “Prabhupada’s Globular Earth“.

Has Mayesvara dasa finally seen the light after reading Rajasekhara dasa’s latest article? Sadly (for some), the author has not recanted his heretical beliefs, but by way of reply we would like to help Rajasekhara Prabhu’s cause by showing how to construct an argument that will totally demolish Mayesvara dasa’s bogus flat-Earth theory once and for all.

In our previous encounter with Rajasekhara Prabhu, the discussion opened with the endearingly titled: “Total Demolition of Mayesvara’s Bogus Flat-Earth Theory“. Being in no mood for compromise with infidels, Rajasekhara dasa’s hurled further thunderbolts in the form of papers such as “Flat Earth—Completely Flattened” and “Failure of Flat-Earth Fanaticism“. Steadfast in his resolve, Rajasekhara dasa remains undaunted by the opinion of some that his own arguments were demolished, flattened, and finished in the process. See here, here, and here.

In a recent article I happened to mention that Rajasekhara dasa had left the previous debate being unable to reply any further. Rajasekhara dasa informs us that this was not the case, and that he withdrew from the debate being unhappy with the editing of his articles at Sampradaya Sun. For the record, Rocana Prabhu also suggested changes to one of my own papers as he felt I had not presented Srila Prabhupada correctly. I was very happy for the constructive criticism, and made the appropriate changes. In any case, now that Rocana Prabhu has graciously returned Rajasekhara dasa to an edit-free platform, we look forward to Rajasekhara Prabhu’s reply to our previously unanswered contentions.

Balarama Jayanti (Lord Balarama’s Appearance Day)


Lord Balarama Visits Vrndavana

Lord Balarama Visits Vrndavana [AUDIO]


Download Audio MP3

——-

Lord Balarāma became very anxious to see His father and mother, Mahārāja Nanda and Yaśodā. Therefore He started for Vṛndāvana on a chariot with great enthusiasm. The inhabitants of Vṛndāvana had been anxious to see Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma for a very long time. When Lord Balarāma returned to Vṛndāvana, all the cowherd boys and the gopīs had grown up; but still, on His arrival, they all embraced Him, and Balarāma embraced them in reciprocation. After this He came before Mahārāja Nanda and Yaśodā and offered His respectful obeisances unto them. In response, mother Yaśodā and Nanda Mahārāja offered their blessings unto Him. They addressed Him as Jagadīśvara, or the Lord of the universe who maintains everyone. The reason for this was that both Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma maintain all living entities, and yet Nanda and Yaśodā were put into such difficulties on account of Their absence. Feeling like this, they embraced Balarāma and, seating Him on their laps, began their perpetual crying, wetting Balarāma with their tears. Lord Balarāma then offered His respectful obeisances to the elderly cowherd men and accepted the obeisances of the younger cowherd men. Thus, according to their different ages and relationships, Lord Balarāma exchanged feelings of friendship with them. He shook hands with those who were His equals in age and friendship, and with loud laughing embraced each one of them. [Read More…]

GBC BODY RELEASES FIRST KINDERGARDEN SANNYASI

Ok, I am kinda in illusion. I though that sannyasis should be kinda scary you know, small children don’t dare to approach them. I thought for a moment there that they should preach about Absolute Truth. I was thinking that a sannyasi is interested in transferring Krishna consciousness to adults mostly, because they have a capacity to understand philosophy. I was thinking that sannyasi should be above the level of singing retarded songs to please the public. Well, I am confused now, let me write an email to Mahadyuti Swami to clarify things.

Dear Mahadyuti Swami,
please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I have a philosophical question regarding your highly philosophical song which talks about eating in Govinda’s:

My question is what should we do if we live in a city which doesn’t have Govinda’s restaurant. Should we starve or there is some way to fix this? Also, since you are very good at presenting Krishna consciousness through singing, I would like to suggest to make songs and videos on following topics: [Read More…]

The Nectar of Instruction by Srila Rupa Goswami (1489-1564 CE)

“The essence of all advice is that one should utilize one’s full time—twenty-four hours a day—in nicely chanting and remembering the Lord’s divine name, transcendental form, qualities and eternal pastimes, thereby gradually engaging one’s tongue and mind. In this way one should reside in Vraja [Goloka Vrndavana dhama] and serve Krishna under the guidance of devotees. One should follow in the footsteps of the Lord’s beloved devotees, who are deeply attached to His devotional service.”

PURPORT BY SRILA PRABHUPADA

Since the mind may be one’s enemy or one’s friend, one has to train the mind to become his friend. The Krishna consciousness movement is especially meant for training the mind to be always engaged in Krishna’s business. The mind contains hundreds and thousands of impressions, not only of this life but also of many, many lives of the past.

In Remembrance of HH Kapindra Swami and His Dedicated Service to Srila Prabhupada

Kapindra Swami – A life of service and surrender to Srila Prabhupada

Kapindra Swami

In Humble Service
~ Kapindra Swami

NAME:
Kapindra Swami

AGE:
66 years old in 2005

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
Sweet Home, Oregon

WHERE ARE YOU FROM
ORIGINALLY?
New York, NY

I accepted Srila Prabhupada as
my spiritual master in July 1970

WHAT SERVICES DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR SRILA PRABHUPADA?

I like to do exactly what Prabhupada wants me to do, and that is to preach Krsna consciousness, or the glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead which is made possible by the distribution of Prabhupadas sacred literature. I like to encourage people in developing their relationship with Srila Prabhupada and help them gain their attachment to Prabhupada. Only Srila Prabhupada can instill in us the confidence, determination and faith to go forward to reestablish our forgotten loving relationship with God, Lord Krsna.

HOW DID YOU COME TO THE SHELTER OF SRILA PRABHUPADA?

After becoming exasperated investigating so many philosophies, religions and spiritual healers, yogis, swamis and gurus, I concluded that the only guidance on the path of spirituality was His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. By meeting his very sincere and beautiful disciples, I saw in them the undeniable genuineness which was reflected in their adherence in following Srila Prabhupada. I accepted Srila Prabhupada as my spiritual master in July 1970.

WHAT MAKES PRABHUPADAS MISSION REAL TO YOU?

Srila Prabhupada. He is the reality.

HOW DO YOU FEEL YOU ARE BENIFITTING BY ASSOCIATING IN THIS MISSION?

Im benefiting by becoming my real true self, free from the contaminations of material existence. And simultaneously getting the array of light of my understanding and appreciation of God, Lord Sri Krsna.

ACCUSED FOR SEXUAL ABUSES AND SUICIDE

Paramadvaiti Swami alias ALANATH (Ulrich Harlan)) is accused for having sexually abused young disciples and for a girls suicide.

He was initiated by Srila Prabhupada as Alanath but he later he had a reinitiation by Gaudiya Math folks.

He claims for himself to be “the next acharya of the Gaudiya Sampradaya”

BHAKTI LATA BIJA – the seed of devotional service

BHAKTI LATA BIJA - the seed of devotional service.

BHAKTI LATA BIJA – the seed of devotional service.

Bhakti-latā-bīja means “the seed of devotional service.” When a person receives the seed of devotional service, he should take care of it by becoming a gardener and sowing the seed in his heart. If he waters the seed gradually by the process of śravaṇa and kīrtana (hearing and chanting), the seed will begin to sprout.

CC Madhya 19.152, Translation and Purport:

“When a person receives the seed of devotional service, he should take care of it by becoming a gardener and sowing the seed in his heart. If he waters the seed gradually by the process of śravaṇa and kīrtana (hearing and chanting), the seed will begin to sprout.

The creeper of devotional service, so nourished, gradually grows, and the devotee, acting as a gardener, goes on pouring the water of constant hearing and chanting. The creeper of devotional service gradually grows so high that it passes through the entire material universe and enters into the spiritual sky, growing still higher and higher until it reaches the planet Goloka Vṛndāvana.  [Read More…]

Where H. H. Jayadvaita Swami is Wrong Again

What follows is a response to H.H. Jayadvaita Maharaja’s paper ‘Where the Ritviks are Wrong Again’. His paper is a response to a letter written to him by ourselves, which in itself was a response to his previous paper ‘Where the Ritvik People are Wrong’.

Before we start our analysis of His Holiness Jayadvaita Maharaja’s paper we would firstly like to apologise to the Jayadvaita Maharaja for any offence, he felt we made towards him in our last response. There were a couple of parts, which were perhaps insensitively worded, and it was certainly not our intention to offend. The remark about the BBT calendar was only meant to inject humour, but was clearly misjudged. We also never meant to imply that Jayadvaita Maharaja’s total understanding of Srila Prabhupada’s teachings on the parampara were imagined, merely those non-existent ones which his paper gave the impression contradicted post-samadhi ritvik. We had tried to remain respectful. Indeed right at the beginning we said his was the best-written attack on ritvik we had ever seen (it remains so). We also said his paper was thoughtfully written; that out of the six arguments he made we only disputed two; we thanked him for using the term p.s.ritvik rather than posthumous ritvik; and we ended with the following: [Read More…]

Hare Krishna Row

One more song based on the cadence of Bob Dylan’s Desolation Row.

Hare Krishna Row
They’re printing Gitas at the station
Built back in ‘eighty two
Dancing backwards to the holy names
In clown suits two by two
Here speaks the glass eyed whistler
He was recruited just by chance
One hand is busy as a talker
The other holds up his pants
And the steady crows they are flightless
Anxious for somewhere to go
As ladies and gentlemen look out tonight
From Hare Krishna Row. [Read More…]

https://www.facebook.com/100004132593051/videos/1311402889007452/?sfnsw=cl

Indradonkey Swami sits down on the floor during his Poland Festival at “Ratha Yatra” and plays the clown and is glorified by his followers. Extremely embarrassing, idiotic scene. It was always clear that the man by the name Indradyumna Swami is not the brightest crayon in the box. However, I was not aware just what an absolute fool he actually is. And such a disgusting insult to his spiritual master. Even at his age he has understood and realized nothing.

He still thinks that being the center of attention is the aim of life – with their Lordships on the Ratha Cart being merely a backdrop. Oh well, I am convinced that Their Lordships are not present in Their forms in this situation. Why should They?

Who needs satire when guru impostors are exposing themselves in such a way in real life?

IskCons Bridge Preaching?

IskCons Bridge Preaching

What is IskCons Bridge Preaching?

Some ISKCON leaders want to bridge the gap between “westerners” and ISKCON by teaching hatha yoga (butt-yoga) at our temples, thus building a bridge to the so called karmi world.

Some Problems WithBridge Preaching

Anyone who has read Srila Prabhupada’s introductory books for a few minutes can see he emphasized the fact that hatha yoga is not part of an effective spiritual process in this age. Obviously Srila Prabhupada felt this is something people really need to know. We must teach people in accordance with this. Our preaching style should demonstrate our foundational principal -the difference between material and spiritual. A “western” thing is spiritual if used in Krishna’s service, and a system of bodily exercise is material, in spite the fact that it comes from the east. Teaching hatha yoga at our Temples implicitly contradicts this. [Read More…]

DO KRISHNA CULTS BRAINWASH THEIR MEMBERS?

DO KRISHNA CULTS BRAINWASH THEIR MEMBERS
IMPRISONED AND BOUND BY THE CULT

DO KRISHNA CULTS BRAINWASH THEIR MEMBERS?
A MORAL PSYCHOLOGY PERSPECTIVE

BY: GAURARADER

The short answer is: Yes, and no.

People, and you might be one of them, assume that Krishna religions are not cults because the followers are clearly not brainwashed. They can clearly articulate their beliefs, they can defend them vehemently against criticism. In short they are able to think critically about their beliefs and if you speak with them it becomes clear they chose to believe everything they believe. You might believe that about yourself. And further you might believe that if a religion doesn’t brainwash its members then it is not a cult.

The truth is a bit more complicated than the above analysis indicates. It is true that Krishna cult members can articulately defend their beliefs, and in that sense they are not brainwashed. But there is no such thing as brainwashing. The term originally referred to prisoners returning from the Korean war who had supposedly been brainwashed into accepting communism and hating America. It turns out there were two distinct phenomena at play. Some prisoners didn’t believe what they were saying to their captors but just told them what they wanted to hear so they wouldn’t be subjected to torture. Some of the prisoner genuinely did believe that communism was superior to capitalism and that the United States was evil for participating in the war, but these people were liberals who already believed those things before they were captured. So, “brainwashing” isn’t a real phenomena. [Read More…]

Review of Siddhanta Ratnam

Review of Siddhanta Ratnam, an Introduction to the Govinda Bhasya. Originally written by Sripada Baladeva Vidyabhusana with commentary by Vedanta Vagisa. Translated by Dr. Demian Martin, Phd.

Sri Srimad Swami Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, the renowned author of over 75 books on Indology and Gaudiya Vaishnavism, commented on Baladeva Vidyabhusana’s Vedanta-Sutra commentary:

 “…. sometimes back, in Jaipur, there was a challenge that “The Gauḍīya Sampradāya has no commentary on the Vedānta-sūtra.” So, at that time Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura was requested… Because he was grand scholar, grand old man scholar, at that time living in Vṛndāvana… So, he was very old at that time; so, he authorized Baladeva Vidyābhūṣana, that “You do it.” There was no need, but people are demanding, “Where is your commentary on the Vedānta-sūtra? So Baladeva Vidyabhusana, with the order of Govindaji at Jaypur, he wrote the commentary on Brahma-sutra. That name is Govinda-Bhasya, So, the Gaudiya -Brahma-Sampradaya, they have got commentary on Brahma Sutra”: Bhagavad-gita Lectures: Bg 13: Lectures. Bhagavad-gita 13.8-12 — Bombay, India, September 30, 1973.

This recent translation of the Siddhanta-ratnam of Baladeva Vidyabhusana by Dr. Demian Martin is a rich mixture of scholarship, detailed research and modern rendering of complex dialectical and theological arguments. The Siddhanta-Ratna was a hidden an esoteric gem couched in terse Sanskrit for over 200 years.   The current edition brings the reader to the wonderful world of vedantic arguments with the detailed elucidations and explanatory commentary of Vedanta Vagisa, an associate of Baladeva.

ALL THIS WORLD NEEDS

All this world needs
Is Shrila Prabhupadas books
To most humbly read
To stop being crooks.

This is the most essential truth
Surrender to Krishna in all that you do
Jut try to understand God or Krishna
Always with us to fullfill our wishes.

We must awake our Krishna consciousness
Now dormant in everyone of us
Is eternal knowledge and eternal bliss
But unfortunately all have fallen into the abyss.

And so now only by Prabhupada’s grace
I am praying to help all out of this place
Of repeated births and deaths of only disgrace
Because all have forgotten holy rightous ways.

And so I beg you Prabhupada
Send your real disciples to me
Thus surround me with thy protection
So I may always serve thy plea. [Read More…]

LIBERATION

 

Note: this compilation is for understanding of what -exactly- liberation entails.

SB 1.9.27 P The Passing Away of Bhismadeva in the Presence of Lord Krsna
AS FAR AS SALVATION IS CONCERNED, ONE HAS TO CONQUER THE PRINCIPLES OF LUST, ANGER, UNLAWFUL DESIRES, AVARICE AND BEWILDERMENT. To get freedom from anger, one should learn how to forgive. To be free from unlawful desires one should not make plans. By spiritual culture one is able to conquer sleep. By tolerance only can one conquer desires and avarice. Disturbances from various diseases can be avoided by regulated diets. By self-control one can be free from false hopes, and money can be saved by avoiding undesirable association. By practice of yoga one can control hunger, and worldliness can be avoided by culturing the knowledge of impermanence. Dizziness can be conquered by rising up, and false arguments can be conquered by factual ascertainment. Talkativeness can be avoided by gravity and silence, and by prowess one can avoid fearfulness. Perfect knowledge can be obtained by self-cultivation. One must be free from lust, avarice, anger, dreaming, etc., to actually attain the path of salvation.
As far as the women class are concerned, they are accepted as a power of inspiration for men. As such, women are more powerful than men. Mighty Julius Caesar was controlled by a Cleopatra. Such powerful women are controlled by shyness. Therefore, shyness is important for women. Once this control valve is loosened, women can create havoc in society by adultery. Adultery means production of unwanted children known as varna-sankara, who disturb the world.

750705rc.chi Conversations
Devotee: Srila Prabhupada, because you are presenting this knowledge so purely, then it’s possible for the common man to understand this knowledge without chanting and following the four regulative principles.
Prabhupada: That is not possible. That is not possible. Ceto-darpana-marjanam. You have to cleanse the mirror of your consciousness, then the reflection will be properly viewed. If you keep it dirty, then it is not possible. Therefore we require first-class men to understand this philosophy, not the fourth-class man. If you keep him fourth-class man, it is not possible.
Devotee (2): We are giving these books to so many common men. Then the books will attract them to perhaps chanting and following the regulative principles.
Prabhupada: Yes, if they read. Even if they touch. That is the difference between this book and ordinary book. Even they touch and they read one line and says, “Oh, it is very nice,” he makes a step forward. If he simply says this word, “Oh, it is very nice,” that is sufficient to bring him. Therefore I am trying to push. He has paid some money. He will then say, “What these nonsense have written. Let me see.” (laughter) And if he sees and says, “Oh, it is very nice,” then the beginning is immediately. Therefore we are trying to push. At least let him say, “It is very nice.” The Kartikeya’s mother, the practical experience… The Kartikeya, when he used to go to see his mother, the mother was going to dance, ball dance, and she would not speak: “All right, sit down. I am coming.” She used to go out. The same mother gradually, in the association of her son, became Krsna conscious. So at the time of death she asked Kartikeya, “Is your Krsna here?” and she died immediately. This is the effect. So anta-kale, she remembered Krsna, so her life was successful. She inquired like this, “Is your Krsna here?” And immediately died. So she got the benefit of her son’s Krsna consciousness. You can ask Kartikeya also. She said that. [Read More…]
