    Hare Krsna 

    Why mahamantra is called transcendental chanting ?

    Because Krsna is non-different from His names. Krsna is transcendental so His names are transcendental.

    How transcendental vibrations arise in material creation ?

    Krsna can manifest from anywhere by His will. There is no restriction for Krsna in material or spiritual world. Just like Narasimha dev manifested from Pillar, Varaha dev manifested from nose of Brahma. Krsna can manifest from anywhere. So Krsna's holy names being Krsna can manifest in material creation by His mercy or will. 

    because transcendental vibrations arise in spiritual world then how they are compatible with material world ? 

    Krsna's names are Krsna. Krsna is perfectly compatible in material and spiritual world. It is the living entity that is not compatible in material world. So holy names are compatible everywhere.

    as water and oil can never mix . spiritual and material vibrations can mix together ?

    nama cintamanih krishnas
    purnah suddho nitya-mukto
    ‘bhinnatvan nama-naminoh

    The holy name of Krishna is transcendentally blissful. It bestows all spiritual benedictions, for it is Krishna Himself, the reservoir of all pleasure.

    Krishna’s name is complete, and it is the form of all transcendental mellows.

    It is not a material name under any condition, and it is no less powerful than Krishna Himself. Since Krishna’s name is not contaminated by the material qualities, there is no question of its being involved with maya. Krishna’s name is always liberated and spiritual; it is never conditioned by the laws of material nature. This is because the name of Krishna and Krishna Himself are identical.
    Padma Purana

     Krsna's holy names are always pure transcendental. They cannot be contaminated by anything.

    Hare Krsna

  • Hare Krishna!

    Material energy is considered to be different from the lord when it is used by the Jiva for the benefit of Jiva (wanting to independently enjoy from the lord) but when the same energy is used in the service of the lord then it becomes transcendental.

    Bg 7.4  Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego – all together these eight constitute My separated material energies.
    Bg 7.5  Besides these, O mighty-armed Arjuna, there is another, superior energy of Mine, which comprises the living entities who are exploiting the resources of this material, inferior nature.
    Bg 7.6  All created beings have their source in these two natures. Of all that is material and all that is spiritual in this world, know for certain that I am both the origin and the dissolution.

    Sarvam Sri Krishnaarpanam!

    Bg 7.4
    The science of God analyzes the constitutional position of God and His diverse energies. Material nature is called prakṛti, or the energy of the Lord…
  • Nope no one is having any mistake.  Listen to me. We can get to Lord in many ways. You hold the nose directly or hold the nose from turning his hand all over and hold is from back of ur head.

    Finally all that matter is holding nose  that is God. Which ever way you take.

    You want to find the truth. you are just like a child. A mother says...Child this is fire  don't go near it u will get hurt. A child listens to its mother.  another child of the same mother will go ahead touch the fire get burned and learns the truth. 

    Its just that you don't want to believe in what scripture, elders and gurus say who have traversed the path and found the easiest way for kaliyug.  As time is less in Kaliyuga.  You want to try the path which the spirutual gurus tried do meditation finally u will reach the same conclusion. God is one.  U many hold many mirrors to see the sun. Different mirrors show same sun in different angles. Just thats it.

    Pls. go on the path which u find it easy. Try the harder way.

    We believe in what Sri Krishna said in Gita.

    tad viddhi pranipatena
    pariprasnena sevaya
    upadeksyanti te jnanam
    jnaninas tattva-darsinah

    It means that .. we have to serve guru and question HIM ( not useless question to test the knowledge of guru) question him to know about Lord. and then do seva to him to know from him the truth. and then the gyani who have traversed the path of self realization will reveal themselves to us. This is only way mentioned in Gita.

    Now u may take guru guidance or u may change dharma and go to another dharma or u may even traverse the path taken by gurus the hard path. and get to same conclusion. 

    Gurus and teachers have and great sages have undergone several yugas of tapasya and got self realization its not a simple process. You and me talking simply wont help.

    IF you are really interested to Know what is self you must be a full time meditating not simply questioning others. 

    I wont answer you anymore. You seem to have lot of knowledge you self. You are trying to find truth in the sages fashion. meditation and self realization is not recommended for this age of kali but still u want to take up that. Pls. do it. If you are able to do meditation and understand self You will be a great teacher to the world. abhi na toh tum pakke hue ho poori tarah se na hum. We are all in the process.

    Instead of degrading other process of bhakti you implement you process realize self let us know.

    Hare Krishna.

  • Follow the Scriptures. Told by Great sages. Shuk dev ji gave excellent description of how He looks like.

    SB 4.24.45-46  The Lord’s beauty resembles a dark cloud during the rainy season. As the rainfall glistens, His bodily features also glisten. Indeed, He is the sum total of all beauty. The Lord has four arms and an exquisitely beautiful face with eyes like lotus petals, a beautiful highly raised nose, a mind-attracting smile, a beautiful forehead and equally beautiful and fully decorated ears.
    SB 4.24.47-48  The Lord is superexcellently beautiful on account of His open and merciful smile and His sidelong glance upon His devotees. His black hair is curly, and His garments, waving in the wind, appear like flying saffron pollen from lotus flowers. His glittering earrings, shining helmet, bangles, garland, ankle bells, waist belt and various other bodily ornaments combine with conchshell, disc, club and lotus flower to increase the natural beauty of the Kaustubha pearl on His chest.
    SB 4.24.49  The Lord has shoulders just like a lion’s. Upon these shoulders are garlands, necklaces and epaulets, and all of these are always glittering. Besides these, there is the beauty of the Kaustubha-maṇi pearl, and on the dark chest of the Lord there are streaks named Śrīvatsa, which are signs of the goddess of fortune. The glittering of these streaks excels the beauty of the golden streaks on a gold-testing stone. Indeed, such beauty defeats a gold-testing stone.
    SB 4.24.50  The Lord’s abdomen is beautiful due to three ripples in the flesh. Being so round, His abdomen resembles the leaf of a banyan tree, and when He exhales and inhales, the movement of the ripples appears very, very beautiful. The coils within the navel of the Lord are so deep that it appears that the entire universe sprouted out of it and yet again wishes to go back.
    SB 4.24.51  The lower part of the Lord’s waist is dark and covered with yellow garments and a belt bedecked with golden embroidery work. His symmetrical lotus feet and the calves, thighs and joints of His legs are extraordinarily beautiful. Indeed, the Lord’s entire body appears to be well built.
    SB 4.24.52  My dear Lord, Your two lotus feet are so beautiful that they appear like two blossoming petals of the lotus flower which grows during the autumn season. Indeed, the nails of Your lotus feet emanate such a great effulgence that they immediately dissipate all the darkness in the heart of a conditioned soul. My dear Lord, kindly show me that form of Yours which always dissipates all kinds of darkness in the heart of a devotee. My dear Lord, You are the supreme spiritual master of everyone; therefore all conditioned souls covered with the darkness of ignorance can be enlightened by You as the spiritual master.
    SB 4.24.53  My dear Lord, those who desire to purify their existence must always engage in meditation upon Your lotus feet, as described above. Those who are serious about executing their occupational duties and who want freedom from fear must take to this process of bhakti-yoga.
    SB 4.24.45-46
    After the scorching heat of the summer season, it is very pleasing to see dark clouds in the sky. As confirmed in Brahma-saṁhitā, barhāvataṁsam asitā…
