  1. That was me, sorry, I did not sign in. Thanks for the source but I do not think that the Church has anything to do with this. This is about scientific theory. They don't even think it is true, they don't even say its a fact. Also, Nowadays... no scientist cares about religion. And Happy birthday prabhu /images/graemlins/smile.gif
  2. Priita:" Our temples and communities, our entire movement should be for Krishna consciousness only. This is what Prabhupada started and desired. I can't imagine Prabhuapda being pleased we use his communities for seminars and therapy, or even authorizing it in the first place. If someone needs a medical or psychology type of doctor, they should go to a licensed one outside the community. " A devotee can't make progress into KC unless he gets rid of his "mental disorder" then why isn't getting rid of that mental disease krishna consciousness work or related work?Why would prabhupada object to this?
  3. "How can we develop the desire to reach the desired state if we think we are already there?" However, I do act and imitate their actions so that I might rise to their level /images/graemlins/smile.gif If we think we are already there, there is a problem, but if we plan to be there... whats so wrong in that?
  4. Priitaji: " No. He doesn't even want them, but accpets them so WE will make spiriutal advancement. " Yes, this point was quite clear to me as I read more about this monument, also, I do apologize for such an immature question. It was due to the newness to his books which made me question such a great entity. The website however, provides great help. /images/graemlins/smile.gif
  5. We cannot just say, I won't eat, krishna shall give me energy, it does not work that way. We have limited freedom no matter how much we try to crave for more of that omniscience, it does not happen and that is a fact. I am not trying to bash this story please forgive my words and do not take them in a negative way, but in my view, this story is a bad example of krishna's mercy in this age of kali. Reason for this : The person is begging. It may have been sattvic to beg in the other yugas because they used to beg and take their 'sinful karma' away from the giver, but in this age, one only begs for one reason : He is too lazy to do his Job. So, begging in this case is a very bad example and will deceive an unintelligent seeker who is like me, anytime. Moreover, Krishna did not tell him to just sit and do nothing. He told him to do his job, which is ofcourse in this case begging. He should go beg and if he surrenders to krishna and does his job knowing that krishna will take care of him no matter what the circumstances then krishna will come to his rescue in his time of need. This is clearly shown in the story. Our Job is to serve , not to be served. There is a big difference. /images/graemlins/grin.gif Thank you for posting it here, but I still think that begging is a bad example for action in this kali yuga. Also, Please tell Yugal prabhu that I said Hi /images/graemlins/smile.gif
  6. Hare krishna mantra is = Krishna himself And krishna = Above every duality in this world and is beyond everything. So : you cannot offend him = you cannot offend his mantra. This is something that krishna himself says when Duryodhana wants to bind him in chains (in the middle of mahabharatha) . That is, You cannot offend krishna and if you try to offend krishna you will humiliate yourself. Therefore, we can conclude that they are offending themselves by trying to misuse hare krishna mantra /images/graemlins/smile.gif So dude, Calm your mind... make it sit comfortably in a chair called equaminity and make it think about what it wants to do for krishna. /images/graemlins/grin.gif
  7. The truth is that we truly don't love krishna, but we don't admit it. It is time that we admit that we don't love krishna and start loving him , through devotional service. Sigh, if it were only that easy to do 'devotional service'.
  8. I will not study! I will not go to class!, I will not form study groups! he better take my test and give me a 4.0 gpa! /images/graemlins/smile.gif
  9. I agree that common man is almost completely unaware of the one reality of which vedas speak. However, the hindu stories about Gods are very important because they promote bhakthi. Bhakthi is essential and is a necessity for a true spiritual seeker. If there is no bhakthi, there is no true happiness and that is a fact. I think once you gain bhakthi, then you don't need anything else. The reason we learn about the "one reality" is to promote loving kindness toward that principle, if this does not develop then what is the use of such knowledge? So, I think these stories are more important than upanishads which are really long and boring.
  10. There are many vaikunta planets as there are many material planets in this material world. I think they say that Vishnu comes to you in the form you worship him. As far as I know, Narayana is one of those forms. That is all.
  11. But I think we have to wait until modern science finds a cure to make new islet cells from embryonic stem cells . I don't think there is a cure for it through ayurvedic means. If there was, then probably every one would have been rushing toward it, which is rare anywhere in the world.
  12. According to webmd, the water from the foods we eat is taken care of that way. The excess water will just make our body throw it away by urine, because we don't need that much.
  13. " IT was fun as we were like "hari bol pass" they were like "huh"" You won because you spiritualized the soccer! /images/graemlins/smile.gif /images/graemlins/laugh.gif Haribol!
  14. Thanks, I was wondering what exactly is dvitam philosophy. But I do have a question : You say: "The devotion which is love and affection in God gradually grows stronger and stronger in proportion to the seeker's contemplation of His virtues. Ultimately he will become fit to meditate upon Him continuously." But then again you stress the importance of service to society, but then again you say that God is different from society and completely independent of it. So, how do you serve the entity "Krishna" who is completely different and independent of this world , through service in this world example: community service etc.
  15. "I know only that Krsna is Syamasundara and Yasodanandana. That's all I know. The only purport of the holy name of Krsna is that He is dark blue like a tamala tree and is the son of mother Yasoda."-purport posted here by anadi. that is all there is to know.
