I have heard from a Brahmacari Prabhu of ISKCON that "ROBOT" is a Snaskrit word and it[ROBOT] is already predicted in Vedic Sastras but he can not tell me in which Vedic Scripture the concept of "ROBOT" is predicted and the specific verse which shows that it is predicted, actually he is senior devotee and had read this news in a newspaper in time of invention of "ROBOT", so he has asked me to post a discussion about this subject for more confirmation about the prediction of "ROBOT" in our Vedic literature.


               So, I ask all devotees that  " Is ROBOT a Sanskrit word ? " and  " Is the concept of ROBOT already predicted in our Vedic Sastras ? "

               Pls post your valuable reply.

    my most humble obeisances Dwipayan Prabhu, yes Your intentions are very nice.

    That You want to present Krishna Consciousness in a scientific way... it is very good. 

    But sometimes to give direct bhakti is better than other ways. For example, i also gave such like question to of of senior Devotees asking him if i preach to my friends about ayurveda ...will it be nice. 

    He became bold with his answers and told that please better directly say to them about bhakti nothing else. Other things are by products of bhakti. 

    For example, on eof my questions was why we wear Vaishnava clothes. I wanted to explain to my friends about the benefits of wearing such like cloth in goodness. that it is clean, etc....

    But he told we wear it because Krishna loves it. We wear it just to please Krishna and Guru. 

    Hope i could explain to You properly what i meant to say.

    And please do not be offended!

    my humble obeisances,

    i do not know why this word of "robot" is so important???????

    Sometimes this robot means human without feelings, emotions...no heart, only programmed as like computer "yes" "no" or "1" "0".

    When we eat GMO food, when we eat plastic, when we use much plastic...then our heart also will be like plastic.

    Why in western countries families are not so connected? Why children want to leave parents and parents after children reach 18-20 years they start to take money for rent their own house :O

    yes i heard it.

    Children pay money and rent their rooms at their own home.


    This the robotism! Without any human or even animal feelings!!!!!!!!!! :((((((((((((

    They kill animals and push that bloody meat into their mouth or even eat them alive :(((((((((((((((((((((((( this is robotism :(((((((((((((((((((

    After some years they will start to give birth to children not for having a child but for eating them. :'(((((((((((((((((((

    Cows will become small like dogs, and women will eat too much.....no milk no grain but only plastic...ha ha this is robotism.

    Don't You think so Krishna's servant Prabhuji?!


    Your servant,

    • From a scientific point of view a robot is an imitation of the physical body which even Krishna describes as a machine or a Yantra. Hear this verse 18.61 from the Bhagavad Gita:

      The supreme Lord is situted in everyone's heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy.

      A human body is made of material energy and so is a robot. In that sense Bhaktin Maral is right. The difference being that the wanderings of the living entities is directed by the Supreme Lord and the wanderings of the robot are directed by the living entities who made them.

      The question of artificial intelligence as raised by Prabbu K.A. It remains to be seen how intelligent the robot can become.

      The question is not just of intelligence however, it is of control. God has given certain independence to the living entities and if man gives certain independence to the robots then perhaps they too will act towards man like man acts towards God.

      Krsna's servant Prabhu i hope this satisfies you!

      but in India for our happiness that culture of unrobotism is still there. 

      Mothers take nice care of their children, relatives, husband...

      And such like culture will be maintained only if Krishna is in the center. 

      Only the Holy Names melts hearts.

      But the endeavors to gratify the dead senses make our heart a stone.

        Hare Krishna. Dandavat Pranam. All glories to Srila Prabhupada

        Yes Mataji, you are true the loving culture is still surviving like slowly dying a patient of cancer.Since the rampant westernization of our culture that has been started around mid 90's ,This Tv, media , newspaper very fastly and systematically changing culture of India, which is evident prominently in metro cities and also spreading in rural and subrural area. We need to counter attack it through rapid spreading of Krishna consciousness within , without, else really one day this earth will be an inhabitant of heartless robot in the body of flesh.

  • Hare Krsna Pr, PAMHO:

    The very purpose of Lord Kalki's advent is to kill all these robots, but there is lot of time for this to happen. If you keenly observe the photo of Lord Kalki using His sword on the entities, one can see that they are not humans, but humanoid. As the artificial intelligence progresses, so does the technology and there is a definite threat to God made robots i.e., The Humans.

    When the technology progresses to that extent where this whole planet is inundated with artificial living beings, then Lord Kalki descends to protect this world from Man made Robots and re-establishes the Dharma with few actual humans who are left over at that time.

    This is the reason that Prabhupad says we are living in the time of emergency and we need to get out of this place asap.  Certainly I don't want to see the Rise of Machines. Hare Krsna.


    • Is Lord Kalki subject to time so as to appear at a later date?

      Robotic technology can become it's own master only in a movie like Terminator. As an electrical engineer i can understand that much.

      • HK,

        Certainly not, Krsna is not subject to time, place, and material nature.

        Right now the nature is allowing us to progress materially and technologically just like it did to Ravana, Hiranyakashipu, Kamsa, Hiranyaksha, and other asuras.

        The more we progress materially and technologically, we start to believe that everything is part of big bang theory and God never existed; when this happens, it's called Height of atheism. The Lord is certainly disturbed to see that His created objects are no where to be seen and they are all lost in time, so He descends to set things on right track again.

        In all the 22 avatars, the education of His existence was proved at different levels to different population at the time of His appearance beginning with Matsyavatara, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, ..... finally Krsna is the last hope for revival. This was the main reason that Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam is presented to the entities of Kaliyuga, so that they can understand what Krsna is and go to such a place from where they'll never have to return again.

        When Lord Kalki appears, there is no preaching and there is no Krsna Prasadam or association of devotees, it's simply being killed if we live to see that.

        Hare Krsna....

    Hare Krishna Prabhuji, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    Mostly about the age of Kali talks the 11th and 12th Cantos of Bhagavatam. Also Bhavishya Purana as You already might know that it is all about predictions.

    Your servant,
