  1. Yes,


    Amala Bhakta dasa, has done the audio of Full Gita with Purports. Althought right now at present it has to be purchased (i don't have it yet,).


    I did convert Bhagavad-gita to audio..







    But what i forgot to do, was to make it so you can stream Full Chapters. :eek2: I'd have to combine a LOT of m3u. files into a txt file to make 1 chapter. Anyway, next time I do it, will be better.




    Lotus, essentially it is the same as chanting one's bija and gayatri. You basically start at the second digit of your ring finger and move toward your palm to the first digit of your ring finger (not using the lines but the digit itself). You then move in a clockwise direction on each subsequent digit till you reach the first (closest to palm) digit of your index finger. This will provide you with 10 counts. When you reach your 108th count your hand will be in its jnana mudra for japa. Your left hand can be used to tally your counts. The other 2 digits of one's middle finger are not generally used to count on (you are one exeption). I've considered the mathematical efficiencies of counting the way you do it, but that was not the way delivered to me.


    I hope I've assisted :pray:


    I think it has something to do with the index finger.(critisizing) So i think your way is right. My way is def NOT authorized.


    A new movie is also available for free to youse folks only. Geisha Warriors, a story of non-violent warfare and spiritual practice. Short, so I may be able to download, but copyright issues are at stake, both mine and who I plagarized. I also make good movies from what others got, see above e-mail for info, consultation, etc.


    Also, if anyone would like to give me (donate) $20,000,000, we could do an indi film of the Kipuka dis-soul-ution. Ill give contributors all the profits and only take my expenses.




    (PS Last time, I asked for $200,000,000, but only god bids for $20,000,000, so I went to the drawing board and decided that Miriam Stokley and noreena McKennett dont have to do the music, and theres other actors out there besides johnny depp and Morissa Tomai.)


    Its Marrisa Tomai, and she was in My Uncle Vinny.:rolleyes:

  4. Having Guru is not just for 'few years or days' it is for Life, no for Eternity. Don't just think 'i have Guru now I am saved', you have to follow what Guru says. And if you decide later that 'oh i don't want to anymore'. If you have taken harinama or diksha, then you have to PAY IT BACK. There is no going back and crying to Krishna, its not like you asked for a pot of water. Be very careful. Just because you heard somebody 'hare krishna' or whoever say Guru is essential., he is. But you have to know the facts, if after accepting Guru you don't follow or even try, Krishna or God will make you crazy...


    You may think I am trying to scare you. But YOU have to pay for the diksha, NOT with money, but your soul.:)

  5. • What are Krishna Cookies?




    Krishna Cookies look just like regular cookies--round, flat, toasty brown, yummy smelling, crunchy and chewy at the same time. They taste like toasted coconut, butter and oats... but there's also something undefineable that makes them better than any cookie you have ever had in your life. It's our secret ingredient, and you won't find it in any recipe book you've ever seen.







    • How do you get a Krishna Cookie?




    You can only get them once a year.




    Come to the Haribol Krishna camp at the National Rainbow Gathering, which is held out in the woods every year around the Fourth of July. Which woods? Well, that we never know until the time comes to get in the car and go. It's held in a different national forest every year.




    You don't have to be a hippie to get one. Just show up and we'll give you one, for free.



    made me smile


    The universe seems to be about 13.7 billion years old, and the age of the earth is about 4.5 billion years. Earth was formed from space debris attracted by a black hole that resulted from the collapse of a large star (supernova). This black hole is now the centre of our galaxy (the Milky Way). It attracted/attracts all matter that formed/forms our own solar system, along with hundreds of millions of other solar systems within our galaxy.


    The early formation of the earth was quite chaotic. By coincidence a lump of matter had formed orbiting our sun, which was large enough to capture enough debris (dust, asteroids, etc.) in its gravitational field to become a planet. Initially, planet Earth was very hot as a result of the energy of the impacting debris. But gradually debris locally run out and the earth cooled. First life may have appeared as early as 4.0 billion years ago. So, I would say 'it took Lord Brahma' about 0.5 billion years 'to create the earth'.



    I was thinking, maybe when Earth was created, (we see creation in the material sense right), so was it created for the process of being 'alive' for 2Billion years? and ending at 2Billion years (Brahma day/night). So would'nt the Earth be 4Billion Years Old, already from its Birth? (aproxx calculations of course)


    Bhagavata Purana states that humans have lived on earth for a period of time called the Day of Brahma (i.e., 4.32 billion years, or a thousand yuga cycles, where each yuga cycle lasts 12,000 years of the gods and each year of the gods equals 360 earth years). Could it be that this mustn't be taken literally? Scripture may then simply refer to our ancient evolutionary lineage, starting with our microbial ancestors that lived a few billion years ago.



    Yes, I have read this. But according to kulapava prabhu theres a night of brahma, included in this. I always thought night was within the 311 trillion years Lord Brahma lived in? Maybe i need to read again! (i forgot about how complicated this can get)


    There is no such direct information in the Puranas. But one could say that since we are half way through Lord Brahma's day (which is about 4.32 billion years) and since our earthly world exists only during his day, the Earth is at least 2 billion years old. That is a lot closer to the scientific theories than what the Bible says (less than 7000 years).


    So everything is destoryed during Lord Brahmas night? So it cycles? Is when the night happens things are destroyed? How long is the day and night?


    Most stories in the Puranas also incorporated final rites for dead human bodies. There are many Asian cultures where the body is destroyed after life leaves. I am not saying this is authoritative; I'm sure there is capacity for this to not have been the case 100%. However, dinosaur remains have not been 100% consistent either and scientists are constantly finding newer information even displacing previously accepted theories. The Puranas also point to a personal embodied Brahma, Chandra, Indra etc. which will naturally lead toward a discussion of what the term "embodied" infers Puranically.

    So your saying people used to burn bodies so no remains can be found?



    I've heard before, that dinosaurs were a product from the previous Kali Yuga (attributed to Prabhupada).:

    Yes, Prabhupada said the 'birds' came from other planets, to stay here and then died. Maybe that could answer why their lifespan is so high (people on higher planet).


    The mistake you are making is, you are taking Puranic stories and trying to align them with the real world. It does not work. You cannot have both, so pick one of these.


    1) Brahma created the earth, man was existing on the planet from day #1 and scientific evidence does not matter.


    2) Modern Man has been around on the planet only for 200000 years. Purana stories are allegorical and are not to be interpreted literally.


    Option #2 is not atheistic, by the way.




    Books : Srimad-Bhagavatam : Canto 4: "The Creation of the Fourth Order" : SB 4.30: The Activities of the Pracetas : SB 4.30.49 : PURPORT :

    The word jagad-aṇḍa-nātha means Lord Brahmā. There are innumerable jagad-aṇḍa-nātha Brahmās, and thus we can calculate the many Manus. The present age is under the control of Vaivasvata Manu. Each Manu lives 4,320,000 years multiplied by 71. The present Manu has already lived for 4,320,000 years multiplied by 28. All these long life-spans are ultimately ended by the laws of material nature. The controversy of the Dakṣa-yajsha took place in the Svāyambhuva manvantara period. As a result, Dakṣa was punished by Lord Śiva, but by virtue of his prayers to Lord Śiva he became eligible to regain his former opulence. According to Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, Dakṣa underwent severe penances up to the fifth manvantara. Thus at the beginning of the sixth manvantara, known as the Cākṣuṣa manvantara, Dakṣa regained his former opulence by the blessings of Lord Śiva.





    Pasted from www.prabhupadabooks.com (very good search facility!).


    I'm not a mathmetician, but:4,320,000 years multiplied by 28. is 120 960 000 (120 Million)




    Books : Srimad-Bhagavatam : Canto 6: "Prescribed Duties for Mankind" : SB 6.10: The Battle Between the Demigods and Vrtrasura : SB 6.10.16 : PURPORT :

    The words prathame yuge mean “in the beginning of the first millennium,” that is to say, in the beginning of the Vaivasvata manvantara. In one day of Brahmā there are fourteen Manus, who each live for seventy-one millenniums. The four yugas—Satya, Tretā, Dvāpara and Kali—constitute one millennium. We are presently in the manvantara of Vaivasvata Manu, who is mentioned in Bhagavad-gītā (imaṁ vivasvate yogaṁ proktavān aham avyayam/ vivasvān manave prāha [bg. 4.1]). We are now in the twenty-eighth millennium of Vaivasvata Manu, but this fight took place in the beginning of Vaivasvata Manu’s first millennium. One can historically calculate how long ago the battle took place. Since each millennium consists of 4,300,000 years and we are now in the twenty-eighth millennium, some 120,400,000 years have passed since the battle took place on the bank of the River Narmadā.




    Books : Srimad-Bhagavatam : Canto 3: "The Status Quo" : SB 3.14: Pregnancy of Diti in the Evening : SB 3.14.2 : PURPORT :

    As referred to previously, the boar incarnation was manifested in two millenniums—namely Svāyambhuva and Cākṣuṣa. In both millenniums there was a boar incarnation of the Lord, but in the Svāyambhuva millennium He lifted the earth from within the water of the universe, whereas in the Cākṣuṣa millennium He killed the first demon, Hiraṇyākṣa. In the Svāyambhuva millennium He assumed the color white, and in the Cākṣuṣa millennium He assumed the color red. Vidura had already heard about one of them, and he proposed to hear about the other. The two different boar incarnations described are the one Supreme Personality of Godhead.
