I'm not going to respond to all the questions, just group them together or something
1. Well Krishna is definitely mentioned in the Vedas
I suggested these posts http://www.iskcondesiretree.net/forum/topics/where-in-the-4-vedas-i...
2. Lord Krishna does worship Lord Shiva, but Lord Shiva is immersed in meditation of Lord Rama. One of the names of Lord Shiva is Gopeshwar Mahadev (which is fantastic story); Lord Shiva himself wanted to become a Gopi to take part in Lord Krsna's Raas Leela. He stands guards to allow only those who are qualified to enter ...
Does it really matter who is a servant and who is a master? The Leelas of Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva are beyond the comprehension of the material world. Lord Shiva is always thinking about Lord Krishna, and Lord Krishna is always thinking about Lord Shiva; each consider themselves to be the servant of the other, so who are we to judge who is the servant and who is the master FROM OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING (the statements of the Vedas, etc. serve as to establish who is the supreme personality of godhead, because these leelas of our beloved Lords always confuse us :) )
3. The material world is cyclical, we have limited knowledge of the past ... so who is this author to say that no one has worshiped Krsna before...
4. Srimati Radharani is the topmost servant of Krsna, she is the hladini shaki (or the pleasure giving potency). To understand or even know of Srimati Radharani, you must be extremely pure... that is one reason why She is not mentioned anywhere. Another reason given by Radhanath Maharaj is that Sri Sukhdev Goswami, when reciting the Srimad Bhagavatam did not mentioned her name. I'm not qualified to speak about Srimati Radharani thus I suggest reading this:
5. To end it all, the author's lack of research is clearly seen in the following link:
Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is predicted in both shruti and smriti texts. His teachings are anti-Vedic only because the Vedic principles cannot be applied in this sinful age. The Vedas are all about sacrifices, dharma, etc .. and who in this sinful age of Kali is qualified to perform such sacrifices or who can withstand the costs or even stay sitting the length of one Vedic sacrifice ... you simply can't!
Lord Kalki's purpose is to shift the world from Kali Yuga to Satya Yuga, but does this mean that God has no intent on liberating those who are unfortunate enough to be born in Kali Yuga? He himself comes in the mood of Srimati Radharani to teach us something better than the Vedas - to teach us how to go straight to Goloka Vrindavana, His home ... something which only the most fortunate can do. It is stated that the yogis after meditating for millions of years got the opportunity to take birth as Gopis when Krsna was performing his leelas and thus they went to Goloka... In other words, it's not easy to go to Goloka, yet Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (who is Krsna himself) welcomes all to Goloka with the simple process of Bhakti-Yoga ... which Krsna himself stated in the Bhagavad Gita as raja vidya. Thus to say that Lord Chaitanya's teachings are anti-vedic means that Bhagavad Gita is also anti-Vedic...
My humble apologies to if I have offended you or any other devotee in any way. Think of me as a humble servant and forgive me.
Hari Bol Prabhu jee! PAMHO, AGSTP!
Won't it be a good idea to put this thread as sticky and list out such websites for the general caution of devotees in general? I came across one such website by Arya Samaj few years back. It will help to know who are non devotess pretending to be one.
Also, can someone guide me what were Srila Prabhupada's thoughts on Arya Samaj? They seem to take stand against everything we believe. How are they so misled in Maya?
Forgive me if I sound angry at Arya Samaj, but I am just not able to control myself on what I see they do.
Aspiring to be your sevant,
Many other so-called spiritual organisations, some of them very pseudo and false, become jealous seeing the fast spreading power of krishna consciousness movement, which is fully krishna-centric and krishna-targeted..no other movement in the world is so purely krishna-centric..hence lakhs and lakhs of people throughout the globe are attracted to true messages and qualities of krishna, which is spread by iskcon..
Hare Krsna to all,
All Glories to Srila Prabhupad!!
I have attached the transcribed lecture of HH Indradyumana Swami Maharaj titled- "Attack on ISKCON"
This will help us to be more faithful for ISKCON.
There are lot of pros and cons and this document is critically analysed.. We can go through the following article
.doc format of the above article
Dandavat Pranam to all devotees
Nice document send by mataji.
I like these statements very much
"So what about the mistakes ISKCON is making? That means the individuals within ISKCON.
Well, the British sometimes say, "England, with all thy faults, I love thee." This is a mentality of the loyal Britishmen. ISKCON has mistakes, we're not denying that. Why? Because so many different types of people come to this movement. There's devotees coming who are just finishing up their Kåñëa consciousness, it is their last birth. There're devotees who're, you know, this will be their second-to-the-last birth. There're devotees who're coming for the first time. And there's even materialists who take temporary shelter of this movement. And in some cases there's even demons posing as devotees. Prabhupäda said that in Caitanya-caritämåta, that demoniac people take shelter of this movement, pose themselves as devotees, and create so much chaos. But even the demons can become purified in Kali-yuga (chuckles).
So it means there's no surprise that there're problems in ISKCON because we have all different types of devotees. We've materialistic devotees, we have kaniñöha-adhikärés, we have madhyama-adhikärés, and we also have uttama-adhikärés. So you have to expect that there's going to be problems. But that doesn't mean we should leave, because Prabhupäda said one time also, "Better to rectify than remove." He was talking about one temple president who wasn't acting properly. So the GBC wanted to throw him out. But Prabhupäda said, "Better than throw him away is to correct him."
Thats absolutely corrrect...but the bad and wrong people cannot taint the divine spirit of krishna consciousness movement, which is very divine-inspired and ultimate goal of one's life, to understand the ultimate god of everyone.
