  1. You have the intelligence, Primate, sifting the chaff from the grain.
  2. My point here is that the Santo Nino de Cebu isn`t a demigod but God himself. Why the Catholics call the Holy Child of Cebu saint confuses me. The Catholic Church maybe have found it difficult to deny Krsna is the Santo Nino least she denies Jesus is the Christ. To solve this problem the Vatican may have commissioned ISKCON to look for scribes who`ll do research quoting verses from the Bible and Srimad Bhagavatam with identical contexts. I know because I was one of the few recruited by ISKCON. Trikalajna Prabhu of ISKCONDC sent me in the early 2000 a copy of this confidential syncrethization plan. This was when ISKCONDC knew from my post in her website`s discussion forums that my eldest son, Matthew have decided to enter the priesthood which later became moot and academic not going through with it when I found Matthew have lost the desire to continue his studies in the seminary.
  3. So, Vaishnavism and Christianity are simultaneously one and yet they differ. While both play, for example, the same song say, God consciousness, it`s Krsna who is the composer while Christ is the singer.
  4. Catholics worship saints for material benefit, except the Santo Nino de Cebu, who is worshiped by transcendentalists to achieve liberation and non-transcendentalists for material gain.The Holy Child of Cebu is God Himself and yet Catholics call Him a saint. There must be a reason why.
  5. I guess that`s what you call TWO SIDES OF THE COIN.
  6. There`s no Krsna-Prasadam available here in Cebu City. There used to exist a Govinda restaurant in the heart of the city. But it disappeared. There used to be a Hare Krsna temple in Mandaue City, the city next to Cebu City, but it can nowhere be found. I know because I used to go there and partake the delicious Krsna Prasadam which the devotees at the temple offer to the public during Sundays. All we have now is the Host we take during Holy Communions inside the Catholic Church every Sunday.
  7. Oh, you mean Krsna is everything. Yes, I believe, Theist, Krsna is everything. It`s because I have faith in what He says in the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam. Krsna`s credibility is beyond question. But tell that to an atheist. Primate, I believe, has the expertise to tell the atheists that God does exists. By explaining to them according to his scientific views on the nature of the Absolute Truth. Once the atheists are convinced with Primate`s explanation. We blast them to smiteerens with Krsna consciousness.
  8. Those were from the lyrics of the song, I BELIEVE, Primate. Hope we could sing that song in duet.
  9. Primate, I believe, too, that somewhere in the darkest night, a candle glows.
  10. That`s why I said sorry. I still eat meat after taking Prasadam or Holy Communion.
  11. You should, Bhaktajan, try your luck staying in prison from 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. The Governor of Cebu assigned me, from May 15, 2007 up to the present, as the physician of 1000 or more dancing inmates confined in CPCRC. Maybe, you will get to know what real suffering is.

  12. Yes, Krsna is everything. But the things He created are subject to the modes of material nature. Even a brahmana is subject to the mode of goodness. We are all subject to the modes of material nature. Only the Supersoul(Krsna) and Time( Kalpataru) are not subject to the modes of material nature.
  13. I believe, Primate, for every drop of rain that falls a flower grows.
  14. The Supersoul and Time are not subject to the modes of material nature. That doesn`t include everything.
  15. Krsna is within everyone as the Supersoul and without as Time.
  16. Where does belief come from? Does it come from knowing? Or knowing comes from believing? Even without seeing? How can a blind man distinguish the real from the unreal? Does he have to touch it to know and believe it`s real? What if the blind man has Hansen`s disease(leprosy)? How will he know what the object is when the blind man can`t even feel if what he`s touching is rough or smooth, hot or cold? When Sukadeva Goswami preached Srimad Bhagavatam to Maharaja Pariksit everyone who heard Sukadeva were enlightened about God. The audience didn`t see or touch God to know God after hearing Sukadeva Goswami yet they believed what they heard. Similarly, you have to believe the drug your doctor gives you if you want to be healed of a disease. If you don`t take the drug, both you and your doctor will never know what your disease was. Knowldege is obtained from the results of the drug you took. If you got well, then your doctor`s impression was correct. If not, then it`s time you have to look for a new one. The bottom line, Primate, is whether if you believe or not what your informant tells you. We only believe what the informant says if it`s authorized. It`s a matter of being credible or not. If not then the informant`s views is simply incredible.
  17. Yes, Theist. There was once upon a time I felt so inadequate why I can`t memorize and quote verses from scriptures like the others do. Or why I can`t simply interpret an ECG tracing. Maybe I didn`t study well when I was in med school or maybe I just couldn`t understand what our teacher in cardiology taught us. Until I read in the Bhagavad-gita that Krsna is the cause of our forgetfulness, remembrance and intelligence.
  18. It can be found, Theist, in the book, Teachings of Lord Caitanya, Chapter 18 Conversations with Prakasananda page 203. ( 1974, 1981 Bhaktivedanta Book Trust) Philippine Copyright 1981.
  19. A pure devotee of Krsna, Theist, doesn`t care for any public opinion about himself. Because his only business, by Srila Narada`s example, is teaching others how to finally go home Back to Godhead. In the Narada Pancaratra it is stated: That all Vedic rituals, mantras and conclusions are compressed into just 8 words, Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare. Having reached this level of knowledge, a pure devotee like Narada Muni if you happen to see him chanting Hare Krsna, is a person who`s impervious to all sorts of things that surrounds him.
