  1. Good observations Prabhu. Please find my comments below: Sure. It is an eternal NOW. No yesterday, no tomorrow. As it is stated in Brahma-Samhita: [...Nimeshaardhaakhyo Va Vrajati Nahi Yatrapi Samayah... "...here there is eternal existence of transcendental time, who is ever present and without past or future and hence is not subject to the quality of passing away even for the space of half a moment...." - BS 5.56 - http://vedabase.net/bs/5/56/en ] There is no yesterday and today. Eternally the time is NOW. It is the NOW that only exists. Therefore it is stated in Brahma-Samhita: "...hence is not subject to the quality of passing away even for the space of half a moment..." In the Spiritual world, the space will be absolute in the sense that the space is also fully spiritual entity serving Krishna. Spiritual world means that there is no matter and hence everything is eternally dynamic in nature always rendering loving devotional service to Krishna. Hare Krishna!
  2. Good reply Thiestji. Also, Srila Prabhupada did mention that there was only one flag, one religion (Vedic religion) even during the time of Parikshit Maharaja. The coming of different people cultures can be explained by the fact that each and every individual is unique, but at the same time there are some characteristics which are similar between the individuals and they tend to gravitate together due to those similarities, thus forming their own small groups. Earlier in Satya yuga the influence of material energy was not that strong and hence there was no segregation into different groups of non-vedic ideas. But as the influence of material energy grew stronger the fractions and innumerable groups began to emerge.. Hope this helps. Hare Krishna!
  3. Sometimes when I visit this site I do read your posts Theist and it surely does have a Krishna conscious element to it. So, please do not think that you are not involving in Krishna conscious discussions. You are indeed doing it!!! Hare Krishna!
  4. Marginal potency is not a place as the name suggests -- it is a potency of the potent Supreme Person. But because the potency is marginal it can either be based in the spiritual or material world. When it is purely serving Krishna, it is based in the Spiritual world and when gratifying it's own senses it is in the material world. Therefore it is called tatastha (something like the sea-shore area). In the sea-shore sometimes there is water and sometimes not, therefore the marginal potency of the Krishna is sometimes with Krishna and sometimes not! If any mistakes in my statements please forgive me. Hare Krishna!
  5. Very nicely condensed Theist Prabhuji!!! Jai! Hare Krishna!
  6. I tend to agree with the Guest as I have seen Srila Prabhupada's original translations of the verses in many of the translations done by Disciples of Srila Prabhupada in Srimad-Bhagavatam.
  7. Your points are well taken. But for a person who acts as if s/he is sleeping, none can wake them up. If someone is really sleeping you can wake them up. But, if someone acts then you cannot. Therefore, there is enough logic to prove the existence of soul. The body is the same while living and dead, then what is missing in the dead body that it starts to decompose and remains static? Similarly, the airplane cannot move by itself. There has to be some person behind it. Therefore, all the planets cannot move by themselves in the orbit -- there is a Supreme Person controlling their movement. All this is very very simple logic, but if a person has made up his mind not to accept God, then whatever you do to them they will not accept. That's the reason Krishna says: [ Na Maam Dushkrtino Mudha Prapadyante Naraadhamaha Mayayaapahrta Jnaana Aasurim Bhaavam Aashritah "Those miscreants who are grossly foolish, lowest among mankind, whose knowledge is stolen by illusion, and who partake of the atheistic nature of demons, do not surrender unto Me." - BG 7.15 - http://www.asitis.com/7/15.html ]
  8. Hello Guest! Krishna is present everywhere in each and every atom [Paramaanu Cha Ayaantarastham], in the form of His energy and at the same time He is present in His abode (Goloka Eva Nivasaty Akhilaatma Bhuto - BS 5.37 - http://vedabase.net/bs/5/37/en). As stated in Brahma-Samhita: [ Eko'pi Asau Rachayitum Jagad Anda Koti Yac Shakitr Asti Jagad Anda Chaya Yad Antah Andaantarastham Paramaanu Cha Ayaantarastham Govindam Aadi Purusham Tamaham Bhajaami "He is an undifferentiated entity as there is no distinction between potency and the possessor thereof. In His work of creation of millions of worlds, His potency remains inseparable. All the universes exist in Him and He is present in His fullness in every one of the atoms that are scattered throughout the universe, at one and the same time. Such is the primeval Lord whom I adore." - BS 5.35 - http://vedabase.net/bs/5/35/en ] Please try to understand. Hare Krishna!

    You have applied a very Krishna-conscious logicc for replying. Seems to be quite convincing :-) Hare Krishna!
  10. Which Ramayana is the basis for this? Valmiki's Ramayana or Tulasidasa's Rama Charit Manas?
  11. Ìn Chaitanya Charitamrta there is mention about so many branches (Shakha) and sub-branches (Upashakhas) of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's followers. And finally the message is to chant "Hare Krishna" Mahamantra. Then why do we want to engage in unneccessary comparisons???
  12. September 3, 1971, England [Conversation with Srila Prabhupada]: Indian Lady: How does one contact the spiritual master? Through a book can you contact the spiritual master? Srila Prabhupada: No, you have to associate. Shyamasundara: "Can you associate through a book?" she asked. Srila Prabhupada: Yes, through books, and also personal. Because when you make a spiritual master you have got personal touch. Not that in air you make a spiritual master. You make a spiritual master concrete.
  13. Well said Guruvaniji. It is very aptly mentioned in Srimad-Bhagavatam: [ Smaashrita Ye Pada Pallava Plavam Mahat Padam Punya Yasho Muraarer Bhavaambudhir Vatsa Padam Param-Padam Padam Padam Yat Vipadaam Na Teshaam "For those who have accepted the boat of the lotus feet of the Lord, who is the shelter of the cosmic manifestation and is famous as Murari, the enemy of the Mura demon, the ocean of the material world is like the water contained in a calf's hoof-print. Their goal is Param Padam, Vaikuntha, the place where there are no material miseries, not the place where there is danger at every step." - SB 10.14.58 - http://vedabase.net/sb/10/14/58/en] Hare Krishna!
  14. Unfortunately not everyone among them knows that Krishna is present in all the atoms in the form of His energy.. Andaantarastham Paramanu Cha Ayaantarastham Govindam Aadi Purusham Tamaham Bhajaami
  15. In Brahma-Samhita, Lord Brahma mentions this about Sun: [Yac Chakshur Esha Savita Sakala Grahaanaam Raajaa Samasta Sura Murtir Ashesha Tejah Yasajnyayaa Bhramati Smbhrta Kala Chakro Govindam Adi Purusham Tamaham Bhajami "The sun who is the king of all the planets, full of infinite effulgence, the image of the good soul, is as the eye of this world. I adore the primeval Lord Govinda in pursuance of whose order the sun performs his journey mounting the wheel of time." - BS 5.52 - http://vedabase.net/bs/5/52/en ]
