Connecting Devotees Worldwide - In Service Of Srila Prabhupada
I'm in need of help. I will ask bluntly but respectfully and I wish to offend no one with this question, especially Krsna. Hare Krsna. Was His Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada murdered or poisoned?
I found some disturbing audio in this video.
Bhakta Dean prabhu,
Vaishnava pranam. The quotes you mention are certainly applicable to conditioned souls like you and I, but are not relevant at all when trying to understand the life of Srila Prabhupada. He is not a conditioned soul and certainly is not experiencing the reaction to "his own past work". Srila Prabhupada is a nitya siddha devotee. There was never a time that he was not fully Krishna conscious. He came here to this world to pull us out, and coming here never implicated him in the snares of maya that the rest of us are prone to become entangled in.
Karma does not exist for the eternal associates of the Lord, nitya-siddhas, as we experience it ourselves to some degree. For the nitya-siddha devotee like Srila Prabhupada, all the events of his life are orchestrated by the Lord Himself. Also, if there is no karma and no disease as you propose, then will a nitya-siddha devotee live forever? Of course not, his/her body is also perisihable, but under the direction of the Lord.
Nitya siddha live forever, because body is transcendental and eternal.
All members of Vaikuntha Lokas and Goloka Vrindhavana are nitya siddhas, because their mind are always occupied with Lord.
Dear Leon Prabhu,
This is the most disturbing question . You know why ? Because this is such a controversy where strong logic is given both ways. We will never know the truth . But how to get over it is the most important part.
The basic thing in devotional life and the most important part : One must not do any ninda or hear any ninda . It gradually pollutes the heart.
Just think by having a look at the youtube video you must have been affected. If you will see their's other video where they are promoting hatred and ninda , your mind will be more affected. So kindly ignore them.
There are good and bad in every institution . One must act like a swan and take the good else so called devotional life is of no use.
One should not forget the below at any cost.
trnad api sunicena
taror api sahisnuna
kirtaniyah sada harih
One should chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw in the street; one should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige and should be ready to offer all respect to others. In such a state of mind one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly.
No, Srila Prabhupada was not poisoned. And also no, you cannot receive diksha from him either. He said clearly that he did not accept any disciples after October 19, 1977.
You guys were all great! These past few days have been troublesome for me in many ways and now I know that I can always count on Krishna to teach me any and everything and He was in all of your minds and fingers when you all responded those wonderfully intelligent and bold statements which have taught me so much. Yes, I am a conditioned soul but like the bound seeking the unbound for freedom I also seek Krishna in that way and this website must be transcendental because I received different responses, yet they were all correct. Thank you all again so much! Hare Krishna. After work I shall reply to each of you personally.
as mysterious as netaji files and lal bahadur shastri demise:)
that's the first time i read this...As far as I know,the11 GBC members was to manage the Society after his demise. Not as Acaryas,but as managers...They decided to be Acaryas....
The duty of a students is to protect and glorify the teachers the best they can.
Because respect and affection toward teacher, one may become blind follower who cant accept any critics, even based on scriptural reference.
Therefore one should not try to speak in a such way to disturb or offend in any way, because Lord arrange the teacher according to ones qualifications.
