pamho, HK,

Is that society existing what Prabhupada wanted ?

Reply I received at Mira Road Temple:

1.  Indian Devotee at Book Stall:  Yes, it is existing.  What is the problem ?  I didn't understand your question.

2.  The same devotee directed me to an old Western devotee (probably a direct Prabhupada disciple) and he asked me some questions based on which I had some discussion with him.  Then I asked him why should we worship Krishna ?  He told me because He is the Supreme.  Whom else would you worship ?  Your dog, your bike ?  He stressed the importance saying, you need to discuss this with devotees.

Reply I received at Juhu Temple:

1.  One Bengali devotee said Prabhupada went to Goloka.

2.  Another South Indian devotee at Book Stall having scientific preaching books told me the differences will always be there.  Devotees are following 4 regulative principles.

Are devotees alert enough in working towards this cause ?

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    I am sure you know hindi - so the basic meaning of the words you would know. For imbibing, you may need to take time.

    Krsna wants variety, thats why there is so much variety in the world,  so many types of flora and fauna, animals, birds, aquatics, human beings, even devotees. 

    Cultivating Krsna Consciousness means to consciously work towards making KRsna the centre of our lives. How to do that? By following the ABCD of devotion - Associating with devotees, Book reading, Chanting 16 rounds of mahamantra everyday and Diet of only Krsna prasadam. This has to be done everyday, not once in a while. Thats why its called practise. By doing this practise, one gradually becomes cleansed of material contamination and starts to enjoy the spiritual bliss experienced in relationship with KRsna. The more one experiences this bliss, the less one is attracted to maya. Of course, it clears all our doubts, calms the mind, trains it to be focused on Krsna. 

    Krishna exists in all the planets simultanenously, at the same time, lives in HIs eternal abode in the spiritual world. Thats why He is God, He can be everywhere and nowhere at the same time.

    Arent these limitations enough? All limitations are a factor of these 4 only.

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

    I am trying to understand what is your purpose in asking?

    Let us go through both the options - suppose such a society does not exist. What will you do? Will you create a society on the same lines, or go and join some other society? 

    Suppose such a society does exist - what will you do? Will you join?

    In both situations, Without joining, how will you know?

    The society Prabhupada created was called International Society for Krsna Consciousness - please note the word consciousness. It is not a physical society. The temples, congregation are physical manifestations of the consciousness that Prabhupada sought to inculcate in all of us. It is international because it has devotees from practically every single country in the world. 

    Now, is it possible for you or for anyone to get into each devotee's consciousness and see whether it is as per what SP wanted or not? My point is - what will you achieve? 

    Isnt our limit we ourselves? If we cultivate our consciousness on Krsna and become Krsna Conscious, then isnt that the biggest gift to Srila Prabhupada, our gurudev and the parampara? In the process, we can try to take people along, but atleast I consider myself insignificant that anyone will follow me. 

    Instead of being bothered whether devotees are alert towards this cause or not, why dont you ask whether you are alert or not? 

    There is a bhajan in hindi which I am sure you will understand - humko man ki shakti dena, man vijay karein, dusro ki jaya se pehle khud ko jaya karien....

    I have replied to so many posts of yours, but you have never reverted to any. I wonder why?

    Hare krsna,

    All glories to Srila Prabhupad!!!

    Is that society existing what Prabhupada wanted ?

    This society is not as per what Prabhupad wanted. Infact he doesnt want us here. He wants us to take krsna conscious and go back to Godhead. so why would he be happy with the current society?

    Are devotees alert enough in working towards this cause ?

    Not many are in the same consciousness as Prabhupad would like his followers to be. But this is Kali yuga, it is not easy to be God conscious. But please note, Prabhupad has made many devotees all over the world and that itself is a victory. Now its upto the devotees to take it up seriously in the mood of serving their respective guru and in turn Prabhupad and in turn previous acharyas.

    Hare krsna.
