Are scriptures valid ?

As far as what I have heard in scriptures, they say wherever Hari Katha goes on, the atmosphere is surcharged with spirituality, Krishna takes charge, etc, etc. and Yogakshemam Vahamyaham.

Why can't the Food For Life program reach the poor class who are struggling to get their food for 2 times and can't pay off their farming loans ?

Why is there a cheater class who is exploiting these poor farmers who are illiterate ?

Why are some areas on this planet affected with famines and droughts ?  What do scriptures say about their rehabilitation or how can they worship Krishna in their conditioned state of life ?

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    Scriptures are right prabhu, the atmosphere changes whereever there is Hari katha.

    Food for Life program is essentially for the poor class only. You will appreciate that there are more poor than the program can sustain. And food is such a thing that one is satiated....... until the next mealtime. So it is much more continous than comfortable. For the Food for Life program to reach villagers, we need volunteers like you who would like to help the poor.

    This is Kaliyuga prabhu. The only way to combat the effects of Kali are To Always Remember Krsna and Never Forget Krsna. The cheater and the cheated, both, are not doing this. Then how can they escape the effects of kali as well as their past karma.

    Same reason prabhu - the world is dukhalayam ashaswatam - full of miseries and temporary. Nature shows its discontent by giving famines and floods. THis happens when the land is not filled with devotees (mainly) and most people are doing all kinds of sinful activities. It is also the effects of Kali that people are not able to lead a pious lifestyle.


    YOur servant,

  • Devotional service doesnt depend on status in society, economic situation, material struggling....

    Every living being gets what they deserved from previous life, besed on their desires and qualification.Therefore ,nobody can blaime anyone for such material situation.

    Sri Shiva said that human society is society of cheated and cheaters, someones enjoys someones effort and struggle.

    In next life cheated and cheaters are likely to change the sides, but all will get out of such circle by serving brahmanas, cows, vaishnavas and Lord.
