  1. There is Lies than there is Bloody Lies than there is Stats. This is from the mouth of one of the professional statistician at the MBA Unit where I am studying. But it makes life a little interesting to have numbers that gives some sort of indication or Trend of what you are interested in. Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  2. The movie was a made by a Bengali Movie Production house in the 1940's or 1950's. A beautiful recreation of the life of a TRUE MAHATMA. The film was entitled Haridas. The movie had English subtitle and I saw the movie about 5 years ago at Rathayatra. Unfortunately at that time the devotees who screened it did not have distribution rights. I was told that the reason the movie was not distributed at that time in India was because it was based on the life of a Muslim who became a great "Hindu" Saint. Just to put it in perspective....At that time/era India just gained Independence and there were many Hindu/Muslim clashes. The movie also includes scenes where Lord Chaitanya Chastises the Muslim Ruler Chand Khazi because he interrupted the Congregational Chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord. Some would probably say why would a film about someone who was born a "Muslim" then became a Great "Hindu" Saint cause rioting?? There are unfortunately many fanatics who belive that if you are born a Muslim you cannot convert to other Religion. That is also the reason why Sirla Haridas was Punished at that time by the Muslim ruler of Bengal Chand Khazi. He was whipped in 24 market places but Lord Chaitanyas Love for his most beloved devotee was such that Lord Chaitanya took the beating on his own back. At that time Sirla Haridas was also not accepted by the Brahmin Class and even today the same Brahmin type will not allow any non-Indian to enter some temples in India. So Lord Chaitanya showed these Brahmins that in the Eyes of the All Merciful Lord All Are Equal But He favours his devotees more than most. All Glories to Lord Chaitanya All Glories to Sirla Haridas:pray: All Glories to Vaishnava Devotees of The Lord:pray: All Glories to Sirla Prabhupada:pray: Hare Krsna
  3. All Glories to Naam-Acharya Sirla Haridas Thakor I hope someone can help me. I am looking for an old Bengali movie of Hridas Thakor in a DVD/VCD format. If someone can give me the website it will be greatly appreciated Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  4. The question you have posed is not an easy one and I do not have an answer for it. The only way I can try to answer it is by asking: How do you control any persons actions which are manifestation of their desires born out of ideologies of hatred?? Do You think that by putting a gun to their heads will change the way they think?? We cannot even controll our own minds let alone controll others minds and desires. The only way is to first get your own house in order before trying to go out there and try to fix the world. It is natural for people persuing spiritual practise to feal empathy for their fellow humans. My only answer is to first rescue yourself before trying to rescue another. This may sound selfish but remember you are held responsible for your own actions. The best way is to mould your life in Krsna Conciousness (always conciouss of Krsna/God) so that it can manifest into positive actions which can impact positively on not only your life but that of others around you. You may say that it sounds like ostrich mentality or an immature bhakta. But I live by the following words:- Raghe Krsna Mare Kaun?? Mare Krsna Raghe Kaun?? Translation: If Krsna wants to protect me who can kill me? If Krsna wants to kill me who can protect me?? Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  5. The post by Suchandra makes a lot of sense. As Sirla Prabhupada states in one of his purport to Bhagavad Gita:- "Book Knowladge without realization of the Supreme Truth is useless." Just to back it up, the following is a verse from Padma Purana: atah sri-krsna-namadi na bhaved grah yam indriyaih sevonmukhe hi jihvadu svayam eva sphuraty adah. Translation: No one can understand the transcendental nature of the name, form, quality and pastimes of Sri Krsna through his materially contaminated senses. Only when one becomes spiritually saturated by transcendental service to the Lord are the transcendental name, form, quality and pastimes of the Lord revealed to him. Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  6. "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful and so are we.They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people and neither do we." Nuff said

Please keep up the amazing work and show those Pandas that Lord Jaganath is the Lord of ALL and not a Select few. May Lord Narsimha protect you so have NO FEAR!!! I will definitely try and make a stop over and pay my obesiance to the Lord when I come to India next month Can you please direct me on how to get to the Temple?? I will also visit Jaganath Puri but will not enter the main temple but I will pay my obesiance to the Lord from outside. Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  8. Was the Krukshetra war waged on a designated battelfield??? Or was it waged in towns and cities? Was the soldiers and Great Generals firing arrows and missiles at civilian targets??? I was under the impression that the war was fought in a clearly demarcated areas. Kshatriya meant persons who give protection to the unarmed citizens/civilians??? Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  9. Yes it is possible to learn Sanskrit. (As Sirla Prabhupada said "Impossible is a word in a fools dictionary"). But will it equip you to better understand scripture?? Well...it will depend. Firstly you have to allighn what you read to the thoughts/understandings of a BONAFIDE SAMPRADAYA or lineage of previous Great saintly personalities coming from Sirla Ved Vyasa the original author of Bonafide Scriptures. You or anybody may ask "Why do I have to Allighn?" The reason I say this is because Sanskrit is also known as Devangari or Language of the Gods and also one Sanskrit word may have different meanings. Great scholars have studied Sanskrit But have they truly appreciated the language in understanding Scriptures?? I highly doubt it. As the saying goes they are licking the outside of the honey jar. That is why I say no problem study Sanskrit but allighn your understanding with a Bonafide Sampradaya to truly taste the sweet honey inside the jar. So enjoy studying Sanskrit because it is a beautiful language which is not a spoken language but a poetic language that is sung. So go ahead and study the Language and use it to sing the Glories of the Supreme Lord and taste the Nectar. Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  10. I have never heard such highly convoluted English. I hope the guest can bring his English down a notch or two. A bit of plain English might make some sense I Hope. Maybe it is just meanderings of a very confused mind:confused:
  11. Mistake corrected. If only life could be corrected this easily
  12. I forgot to also ask What do you want the Mantra to do for you?? Is it... To gain a beautifull wife/husband Gain richess beyond your wildest imagination Gain fame throughout the three worlds Become a powerfull warrior I forgot the others But I am sure there is someone out there who can help me complete the list of One of the things most wanted from a Mantra before leaving this material abode. On my travels through India I am sure for good couple of quids/bucks I can get you a Mantra. I will send you my account details. (As the saying goes for everything else there's mastercard) But Alas I think for my own miserable condition I don't see any hope Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  13. Oops sorry pressed wrong button: It seems like you already have a mantra. So why are you seeking do you want to free your mind or gain some knowladge, power, prestige??? If you are seeking some material benefits then yes you should not ask the Hare Krsnas because they will lead you on a path of material destruction. Just look at me I have been cursed by this little Blue Boy who sent an Old Man to the West and made my material life a living Hell. So if you find that Mantra that can free me from this "Misery" please help!!! Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada
  14. the meaning of the word Vaikuntha? I read it somewhere but forgot. Hare Krsna Jay Sirla Prabhupada:)
