Where Did Prabhupada Come From?

September 27, 2011 |

Question: About Srila Prabhupada, we hear devotees quoting Caitanya Mangala where Lord Caitanya says "I will send my senapati bhakta"; (there is also the prediction of Bhaktivinoda Thakura).

Question:

About Srila Prabhupada, we hear devotees quoting Caitanya Mangala where Lord Caitanya says "I will send my senapati bhakta"; (there is also the prediction of Bhaktivinoda Thakura).

On the other hand Srila Prabhupada says about one astrologer who told him that he was a physician in his previous life; his inclination to play a physician in a children's play; and the reason of coming back (not BTG) – the killing of the snake in order to make a medicine from its poison.

The 2 info we reconciled but we need also the opinion of other devotees.

Namely, just as Drona and Dhara went into the bodies of their source the nitya sparsadas Vasudeva and Devaki, similarly Srila Prabhupada should have had an expansion that became one with its origin, the senapati bhakta predicted by Lord Caitanya.

Question:

I am writing to Your Holiness to ask a question about a discussion that I had with a person who knows both ISKCON and eastern paths of philosophy and metaphysics. He was making comparison and criticism. He said for instance that ISKCON temples are a mess, dirty, noisy with lots of fighting amongst devotees and budhist, taoist temples are very clean, organized, quiet, peaceful, sattvic. He said that many ISKCON devotees don’t have basic manners, culture, education, etiquette whereas budhist, taoist, astanga yoga practioners are educated, well mannered people. He also said that these people seems to have much more sense control than the devotees. He said that ISKCON doesn’t have organization, planning, structure, stability whereas these groups are very well organized, structured with years, decades, centuries or more of work and tradition. His point is that you judge something or someone by the results and symptoms, so if the devotees are the topmost transcendentalists and if ISKCON and the Sankirtana movement is the most elevated spiritual movement than there should be example, results and symptoms of such superior position. His reasoning is that these eastern paths and their followers seems to be more advanced,self controlled etc. than the devotees. I know his thinking comes from a neophyte understanding but I want to know what I could say to him. Could Your Holiness, tell me what I can say to him?

Grain Prasada Distribution on Ekadasi at Guruvayur

This is offered as "Prasadam" to devotees. Iskcon follows vedic scriptures, but why there is a difference… Expand>

This question has been answered by His Grace Gokula Candra Prabhu, a senior disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj upon Maharaj's request.

Condemn Modern Civilization, But Use Modern Amenities

August 29, 2011 |

Question: My question is that Srila Prabhupad used to blaspheme for all new developments but we are utilizing all the modern items for our day to day use nowadays like — staying in a big building, travelling through airplane, using modern equipments for our health… how we do counteract when people ask that one way you are condemning modern civilization but in other than you are using the modern utilities…
