I have a question on the purport of the verse in the book of 'Teachings of Queen Kunti', the verse S.B. 1.8.34.
For whoeever read that book, on the last page of the purport on this vers (page127 last sentence)
"The whole world is now overburdened by such rascals and demons, and therefore the atom bomb is waiting for them by the will of the Supreme."
This purport was writen befor the end of the Cold War agreement, yes in the 80's in Europe was a lot to do around the waponery of both superstates US and USSR. Yet it was not happening...
Conclusion of mine; I love to read the origional texts but the comments are highly flavoured by the time being I assume.
However a few days ago both superstates ripped open the agreement of disarmor. Why? They want a new one with China included. But by breaking it open the treath of the atom bomb might be real again.
I wonder how Krsna Conciousness people react on this all.According to the scriptures wars are to wipe out the burdenof the Earth si the repeating 'mantra' of all revealed scriptures.
In that light with a member of a Krsna-devotee wanting to be president of US, she might have to clean up the mess of this president.
Normally I am not very intrested in politics anymore, but this situation triggered me to ask a question.
In short; How does a Krsna Conciousness focused person deals with the purports even when it is written in other times, while the current situation might be so different?
Other question for you all; Milk.
Krsna demands milk to be offered. I do live in a place surrounded by milk farmers and factories for milk products.
Dayli I see how cows be treaten badly, also get hormons and stuff. Calves after 2 weeks get or the bullit or go to a calve farm to be fed into26 weeks and go to slaughterhouse to serve the tongeu of many people. Yes I did talk to them on many ways, no they won't listen.
Once a devotee told me; "It is not your karma, just ignore them this is how Krsna wnated it, you can do nothing"
Wait, is that correct?
Sadly I am highly allergic to many foodstuff, include milk.
Even if I was not getting sick of milk I kindly refuse, why? I know where it comes from.
I like to show you pictures or videos of how thigs are, but I do not do that.
I respect your way of living and do not want to disturb your bhakti process.
Long ago 4 devotees out of Amsterdam&Germany came to my place and one was totally stressed/emotional and wanted to attack the farmer who was responsible for the mess of a death calve... yes the inwards sometimes comes out and some calves look very bad...
I keep chanting Hare Krsna, all I can do...
So second question;
Like Lord Buddah (also Krsna in disguise) came to put away the vedas and preach ahimsa to in the end restore the vedas(as I understood) perhaps now the time to avoide milk to do the same?I am shure lots of devotees do not know what happens with calves in Europe. The 2 farms near me have 6,000 calves and they go to slaughter after 26 weeks. They come from all over Europe male and female in small spaces. After they come mature they go to slaughterhouse, means many buuls take often one pink/young cow. A massacre of sexual explosions... So if a cow is the gate to human birth, no wonder many kids are born with dissorders and sexual dissorders like transgenders and homo/lesbian feelings. Think about that! As the scriptures reveals; you start where you ended.
I hope devotees will think about this before they comment.
Comments are appreciated, altough keep in mind that what I posted is very disturbing to many of you. But the truth. Cows never see bulls here and the cinderella of Vridavan gopis is far far from here. Cows are after 4 years of giving milk slaughterd by the thousands here where I live! The Netherlands is the biggest meat producer in Europe and export to 220 countires cow meat... just saying. I live in hell, ther is no lower place on this planet. Therefore I am very fortunate to live here, because my Krsna Conciousness will only be stronger by the day.
