  1. western people have not started yet .Now you want to cristise Krishna also who are you to be so intelligent.?This kind of intelligence dooms one
  2. Guruvani Srila Prabhupada did not like waisting time on endless orgin debates to continue to do so is useless.To aquate the words of the acraya as fairy tales will not help you in your progress to reawaken your dormate Krishna Consciousness.It seems you walk on thin ice and are about to fall in.
  3. Srila Prabhupada has said that once going back to Godhead one will not again fall back to the material world .His Divine Grace's example was that of placeing ones hand in fire ,once we understand what is fire we will not place our hands in into fire again. So whom here will place thier hand in fire to be burned ,we certianly all advoid that, we have the abilty to but no one would do it willfully. Once we go back Home Back to Godhead we do not willfully return back to the material world .To serve Krishna tho if ordered the devottee will whatever is His pleasure
  4. Srila Prabhupada never ONCE said that any devotee has ever fallen from Goloka or become in illusion in Goloka. It is simply absurd to even propose that he was saying that. <!-- / message -->Agreed
  5. This was the statement of His Holiness Bhakti Vaibava Puri Maharaja as told to me by my godbrother Guru Kripa Prabhu .
  6. Only if one follows the previous authority transparently can they have any power to present the message of his authority .To the degree that they surrender to the spiritual master that much impowerment will manifest within them or not so. Srila Bhaktisiddanta is Gaura Vani impowered by Lord Chaintaya and by Srila Prabhupada's surrender to Him was His impowerment possible.
  7. As the jiva is at one point placed at the point between spiritual and material relems the "tata" Back Home Back to Godhead is not incorrect postion. The jiva is the eternal servant of Krishna so Back to service is also correct as eternal has no beginning . Sancrit and Bengalli Scholars do not have the power to spread Lord Chaitianya Mission so we do not care for thier intrepretations.One has to observe if they even chant japa or follow a regulative life and serve under the authority of a bonifide devottee. Shree Ballaba Acarya approched Lord Chaitanya with his comentary of Srimad Bhagavatum saying that his translation was superior to Sridhar Swami's. Lord Chaitanya did not acceapt his comentary and refused to read them. It was my understanding that Back to Godhead was under the authorship Srila Bhaktisiddanta's Prabhupada's and not my Srila Prabhupada. This material world is the fariy tale prabhuji and the Acarya is the way out of the quicksand of this place Bhaktivendanta Purports will become the law books for the next 10,000 years regardless of what the GM devottees preach or how the sancrit and Bengalli scholars understand sastra. ISKCON must constantly reform itself back to Srila Prabhupada or it will fade . In the absent of a Mahabhagavat devottee on the planet even fire flies seem very brillant.
  8. yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado yasyaprasadan na gatih kuto 'pi dhyayan stuvams tasya yasas tri-sandhyam vande guroh sri-caranaravindam By the mercy of the spiritual master one receives the benediction of Krsna. Without the grace of the spiritual master, one cannot make any advancement. Therefore, I should always remember and praise my spiritual master and at least three times a day I offer my respectful obeisance’s unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master. I was born in the darkness of Ignorance but then by the wonderful Benediction of Lord Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Lord Nityananda Prabhu I came in contact with Your Divine Grace and your devotees. I offer my humble obeisance’ to you Srila Prabhupada, again and again. The world I was born into was just a constant place of suffering… from childhood to boyhood to youth, I suffered greatly just like I was drowning in a breathless struggle . Where was there real truth? Where was there real loving kindness? Where was there real friendship? That was my need and hope to find., Being taught untruths as truths I took shelter in Maya more and more deeply drowning I could not for see a long life for myself ,certainly I thought death would come at 35 to 40 years at the most. Totally frustrated I met your Divine Grace’s devotee representatives, saw the Deity form of Lord Jagganatha on His cart and my suffering was at check. A few years past with even more intense suffering until I again met your devotees ,they appeared to me the same as angels within the nightmare of my life then leading out of that nightmare and to Your Divine Grace. I did not know at the time Srila Prabhupada that it was you that was extending your hand to me. I just sensed, the few moments of time I had with your devotees ,the hint of the truth ,loving kindness and friendship that I so desperately longed for and needed. I can remember the actual moment that your Loving Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada poured down upon me, at that moment my life changed. I was given a flower to offer to your Lotus feet and I was perplexed . The mind spoke: What was this? Offer a flower to a man and bow to him? Why? Then …by Your Divine Grace I could understand that it was you ,my savoir who was extending me your hand and shelter out of my life of suffering by some grand luck I placed my small offering at Your Lotus Feet bowed down to you ,offering my first obeisance’s and my life then changed, at that moment I came under the shelter of your Lotus Feet Your loving kindness has blessed me for 33 years now. Srila Prabhupada you told us your Divine Grace was the teller in the bank of Krishna and that by offering our prayers to you ,Your Divine Grace was safely placing them within the Lord’s Bank. Thank You Srila Prabhupada for your constant attention to me. Memory of your words and actions one’s life becomes purified. I bow down at your Lotus Feet Srila Prabhupada.
  9. The devottees explained that they only offered a thali of ffod to Lord Jagganath .If they do not beleave that Lord Jaggantha is real then the remaining food which we consider parasad is boga to them. I dont think Musliums would acceapt any food cooked by the devottees if that was so it should not be forced.
  10. News to me too.I wonder why it is not in Krishna Book? Im sure Krishna has every kind of animal pet whenever He desires. Shivanada Sena dog did go back home back to Godhead on a flower airplane.
  11. I personally just chant with Srila Prabhupadas japa tape .To me all is there ...chanting while listening to my chanting and Srila Prabhupadas as well.How much more forgenate can it be to be able to chant your rounds with a maha bhagavat.There has to be great spiritual progress made. I personally only find this helpful in my chanting . If I make some kind of offense I also find it hard to chant nicely so I am allways struggling to chant better.
  12. ISKCON is not disturbed by how many disfunctional persons may be serveing within as mangers...there is an Inner and Outter circle in ISKCON . The outter circle the disclips of Srila Prabhupada formally ...within ISKCON such as Jayaadwaita Swami or outside of it such a Tripurai Swami Jagat Guru Narasimha Swami are still ISKCON .Jahnavi Nita Prabhu's Bhaktivedanta Ashram is ISKCON . The disinfrancized menber whom can not find a place of service within ISKCON are still part of the International society for Krishna but preaches the glories of the holy name is ISKCON,The Ritvik section is still ISKCON the GM which is now filled with Former ISKCON menbers is also ISKCON the Hari Bol International society is still ISKCON From Srila Bhaktisiddanta's branch Gaudiya Math all is ISKCON. All of these devottees will join in kirtian together with Lord Chaitanya leading the kirtian . ISKCON will remain as long as one person is still reading Srila Prabhupadas books and want to surrender to him.
  13. Lalita Prasada Thakura was a highly controversial person in the Saraswata sampradaya circles, yet Prabhupada accepts him as his guru and demands his disciples show proper respect. That is true respect not some fake lip service and attitude. Srila Prabhupadas meeting with Srila Lalita Prasada was because Srila Lalita Prasada had many volumes of unpublished writings of Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakur and Srila Prabhupada met with him asking him if he would alow ISKCON to preserve them or at least photograph them. I do not think these were allowed to be photographed some maybe>? Guru Kripa who was with Srila Prabhupada when His Divine Grace meet with Srila Lalita Prasada .Srila Prabhupada told Guru Kripa Yasoda Nanada Prabhu that He was a pure devottee Srila Prabhupada never said he aceapted Lalita Prasad as Guru.He Told them Srila Lalita Prasad had diffrences with His Guru Maharaja. When Guru Kripa and Yasodananda continued to visit Srila Lailita Prasada Srila Prabhupada at frist did not object.It was only when Srila Laitla Prasada spoke to them of points not in line with Srila Bhaktisiddanta Prabhupadas teachings that Srila Prabhupada told GuruKripa 'I dont know why Srila Lalita Prasada has told you such and such ,it is best you do not go there." Srila Lailta Prasada when they met him alone at once told Guru Kripa and Yasoda Nanda what thier eternal rasa with Krishna is. Guru Kripa told me as soon "as Srila Prabhupada told me better not to go back I never did.And the point of telling us what our relationship with Krishna is ,yes he has told us ...but that will not take place for millions of births."
  14. Well I dont know how many of you were in His Divine Grace room when Srila Prabhupada met with HH Naranya Maharaja and HH Bon Maharaja. I was ,Srila Prabhupada told them in a very humble way ,not tearfully but his humble way. "Because I am an Acarya I have had to criticise your mistakes as examples to my disclips so they do not make them.( It was His Divine Grace duty to do so)I am sorry if I have offened you" That was the compelte statement by Srila Prabhupada made to His God brother HH Bon Maharaja and his god nephew HH Naranya Maharaja.(In English) At that point at once NM said "You can never offend because you our Guru". Then Srila Prabhupada began converstion with the two in Hindi I could understand that Srila Prabhupada was speaking the Hindi Lanuage which meant to me that Srila Prabhupada had some desire to speak to privately, so I at once offered my Obeiances to Srila Prabhupada and left the room. Srila Prabhupada continued to meet with these two devottees for 15 to 20 minutes more I estamate as I then remenber HH Tamal Krishna Maharaja outside of Srila Prabhupada's room speaking to HH Bon Maharaja escorting him to the gate of Sri Sri Krishna Balarama Mondir on the side of the temple by Srila Prabhupadas room.HH Naranya Maharaja may of still have been with Srila Prabhupada.Most likey he was. HH Bon Maharaja told Tamal Krishna Maharaja and myself as I went over to them and listened to what HH Bon Maharaja was telling TK Maharaja. Bon Maharaja told us "dont hate Krishna for takeing srila Prabhupada,Srila Prabhupada was preparing to reenter Radha Krishna Nitya Leela." He also told us that "now at the passing of Srila Prabhupada all of us would now be tested by fire." Bon Maharajas words are very real to me more and more than less . Every time I visit our Atlanta Temple so many ways the fire is burning me.
  15. my humble opinion is that in ISKCON the siska of Srila Prabhupada is most vauleble and important for ISKCON'S health the diksa of whom is connecting the new devottee with Srila Prabhupadas instructions is a formality . Because ISKCON has it the other way around there has been much suffering. To quote my godbrother Teajeas Prabhu "when you have 100% purity why be intrested in 5 to 10 %".
