  3. Actually, only the planets up to the Svargaloka or the heavens are destroyed after the day of Brahma is over. Above the heavens are Tapa, Jana and Satyaloka. So, they survive. But, on the Tapaloka planets the heat is too much so they transfer to Janaloka to wait out the destruction and then return after it's over. But, all the planets up to Indraloka are destroyed. Beyond the heavens are the planets of the great yogis and jnanis. Those planets are only destroyed at the time when the whole universe is withdrawn back into the body of MahaVishnu at the end of Brahma's lifetime.
  4. Your arms are not you. Your eyes are not you. Your mouth is not you. But, they are all part of you. The gods of this world are not God, but they are all a part of Him.
  5. No it's not. It is hosted and provided by Tirtharaja das (TKG) with the permission of the BBT. It is vedabase.net not krishna.com
  6. It is a web site, but it is not MY web site as you said it was MY web site. I have nothing to do with the web site. I just use it. I didn't make the web site.
  7. There are no bits and pieces Melvin. Krishna is the Supreme Absolute Truth. That is not a bit or a piece, it is the complete truth.
  8. There are no bits and pieces Melvin. Lord Krishna taught the same thing again to Arjuna and it is all in the Bhagavad-gita. What he taught to the Sun god millions of years ago and lost was again revived on the battlefield of Kurukshetra and Arjuna was the recipient. You can get the same benefit that Arjuna received if you just study the Bhagavad-gita as it comes down in the disciplic succession from Lord Krishna.
  9. It's not my web site. It is there because the BBT has authorized it. It has some errors, typos and mistakes so sometimes I have to turn to the books if something doesn't sound right. I have found quite a few errors, mainly missing sentences and sometimes missing paragraphs. But, for convenience it is ok.
  10. Well........... no......... you are quite wrong. In fact the Gaudiya sampradaya is very strict about not taking theories and ideas from outside. What you have said cannot be supported by any evidence such as the written teachings of any Gaudiya acharya. In fact it is mental speculation, a fabrication. Sorry, but your statement is incorrect.
  11. You can read all the books online free. here: http://vedabase.net/
  12. That is not from the teachings of Srila Prabhupada or the Gaudiya tradition. If you want to go outside the Gaudiya teachings and pull up something to support your point, you should not expect that the Krishna devotees will accept it.
  13. ISKCON has observed Sivaratri from the very early days. Anybody that knows much of anything about ISKCON would know that ISKCOn has always celebrated Sivratri. That means that Gaudiya Vaishnavas have always observed Sivaratri. Sivaratri is found on all the Gaudiya Vaishnava temple calenders and is observed regularly.
  14. No. I have never heard of those terms in the books of Srila Prabhupada. Ego is one's conception of oneself. False ego is the conception that the living entity is the material body and mind. When the living entity becomes situated in proper spiritual life of devotional service then he becomes freed from false ego and he is established in his real ego of being a part and parcel of the Supreme Absolute as an integrated component. I have never heard Srila Prabhupada refer to any thing as you say the "super-ego". There is false ago of material identification and there is real ego of realizing oneself as an eternal part and parcel of Krishna, the supreme absolute. There is no "superego". There is false ego and real ego. Krishna's ego is that he is a cowherd boy the lover of Srimati Radharani. Real ego is all a part of the spiritual character of the liberated souls and devotees. Some are parents of Krishna, some are friends, lovers etc. Ego is the spiritual identity of the soul as an eternal devotee of Krishna in one rasa or another. False ego is some illusory self-conception of being something other than a servant of Krishna. That is an illusion. That is false ego.
  15. Obviously, you have read some in the books of Srila Prabhupada, but as well it is obvious that you need to study a LOT more. It appears that you need to be studying more and spending less time on the internet posting in large colored fonts.
  16. Transcendental does not mean inconceivable. It means spiritual. Krishna can be understood if he chooses to let you understand. Otherwise, by your own mind you cannot know him.
  17. deva-deva — O Lord of all demigods; BG 10.15 deva-deva — O Lord of all demigods; BG 10.15 deva-īśa — O Lord of all lords; BG 11.25 deva-īśa — O God of the gods; BG 11.37 deva-īśa — O Lord of lords; BG 11.45 deva-deva — O Lord of lords; SB 1.7.26 deva-deva — O Lord of lords; SB 1.7.26 deva-deva — the worshipable of the worshiped; SB 1.8.9 deva-deva — the worshipable of the worshiped; SB 1.8.9 deva-devaḥ — the Supreme Lord of the lords; SB 1.9.24 deva-deva — O god of the demigods; SB 3.15.4 deva-deva — O god of the demigods; SB 3.15.4 It goes on an on. If you don't understand this, there is nothing more I have to say.
  18. Obviously, you seem to have some idea that ego in itself is a derogatory term. It is not. It is Latin for "I" and also means "self". Don't get ego confused with false ego. False ego is the illusory conception that the body is the self or that the mind or intelligence is the self. Real ego is to know oneself as spirit soul - part and parcel of Krishna. If Krishna didn't have an ego he would not exist as the ego is the self. Look at the dictionary definition and try to understand, then you won't be asking for some shastric proof that Krishna has an ego. If you can just understand the meaning of the word it will all be clear to you. It is so elementary that the idea of requiring shastric proof that Krishna has an ego is ridiculous.
  19. Well, for example, God in the Bible is the creator. In Vedic lore the creator is Brahma who is a guna avatar of Vishnu. Creation of this particular universe in terms of engineering the planetary systems and life forms is the work of Brahma. So, Vishnu is the plenary portion of the plenary portion of Krishna. Not only is Krishna the Lord of Brahma, but even Vishnu or Narayana considers himself the servant of Govinda. So, Krishna is the God of millions of Gods. Krishna is even the God of Narayana. Even Lord Balaram, the first expansion of Krishna considers himself a servant of Krishna and all the Vishnu expansions come from him. Lord Balaram is the original Vishnu and partakes of the nature of a servant of Krishna. According to expert opinion, Balarāma, as the chief of the original quadruple forms, is also the original Sańkarṣaṇa. Balarāma, the first expansion of Kṛṣṇa, expands Himself in five forms: (1) Mahā-sańkarṣaṇa, (2) Kāraṇābdhiśāyī, (3) Garbhodakaśāyī, (4) Kṣīrodakaśāyī, and (5) Śeṣa. These five plenary portions are responsible for both the spiritual and material cosmic manifestations. In these five forms Lord Balarāma assists Lord Kṛṣṇa in His activities. The first four of these forms are responsible for the cosmic manifestations, whereas Śeṣa is responsible for personal service to the Lord. Śeṣa is called Ananta, or unlimited, because He assists the Personality of Godhead in His unlimited expansions by performing an unlimited variety of services. Śrī Balarāma is the servitor Godhead who serves Lord Kṛṣṇa in all affairs of existence and knowledge. Lord Nityānanda Prabhu, who is the same servitor Godhead, Balarāma, performs the same service to Lord Gaurāńga by constant association. So, Krishna is even the God of Balarama who is the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
  20. yes. But, on the battlefield of Kurukshetra Krishna is alone. He is not having lila with Radha. Gaudiyas don't like to worship Krishna without Radha. Same Krishna, but his names are different according to his lila and the aspect of himself that he is showing.
  21. First, we must understand the name because the diacritics are missing. Vasudeva and Vaasudeva can be easily confused. Vasudeva is Krishna's father. Vasudeva is also Krishna. Vasudeva as Krishna's father has a soft (a) and is pronounced like the u in but. Vasudeva as Krishna has a long (a) and is pronounced as Vaasudeva. So, Vaasudeva is Krishna in his all pervasive feature as the indwelling spirit of all souls. Krishna of Bhagavad-gita is Vasudeva because he is not worshiped with his shakti Radha as in Radha-Krishna. In the beginning we worship Krishna of Bhagavad-gita on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. There he is not with his shakti Radha. In Vrindavan, Krishna is worshiped along with his shakti Radha. This is the Gaudiya Vaishnava worship. Gaudiyas worship Radha-Krishna. In the Gaudiya temples you always find Krishna being worshiped along with the deity of Radha. The idea of worshiping Krishna without worshiping his shakti Radha is actually Vasudeva worship. Gaudiyas do not worship Krishna without simultaneously worshiping Radharani. So, that is why Gaudiyas are known as suddha-shakta because the worship of Radha is the pure form of shakti worship.
  22. Krishna has an ego - a spiritual ego. There are two kinds of ego; real and false. In illusion we all have false ego. In Krishna consciousness we have our real ego as servants of Krishna. We have ego because Krishna has ego, but that ego must be purified for it to be spiritual.
  23. If you think your are Krishna you are IN illusion. You seem to be saying that with your forum nik.
  24. Actually........both. Krishna is beyond God. Krishna is the God of God.
