What is Heaven on Earth ?

Matthew 6:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

I saw the following statement written on the back glass of car outside a Church "Thy will be done."

Can someone quote any verse from BG, SB, or CC that is similar to this Bible teaching ?

    Hare Krsna prabhuji,


    We believe what the revealed scriptures tell us. Specifically, that there are 14 planetary systems in the material world and that there is a spiritual world apart from the material world where there are Vaikuntha planets and Goloka planets. 

    Regarding getting goat's yoni for eating a tulsi leaf, even modern science is saying that it is better to swallow a tulsi leaf rather than chew it - some chemicals get generated while chewing which takes away the goodness of eating tulsi. We are logical people in today's world, so will believe anything any scientist says, but will keep on questioning what our scriptures say. 

    Regarding bridge falling due to bad stars, this is humbug. People will give different excuses to hide the culprits. 


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD

  • The entire essence of BG, SB, CC is this very teaching : "Thy will be done" or "Let Lord's wish be done" 

    BG : 

    Bg 18.57  In all activities just depend upon Me and work always under My protection. In such devotional service, be fully conscious of Me.
    Bg 18.58  If you become conscious of Me, you will pass over all the obstacles of conditioned life by My grace. If, however, you do not work in such consciousness but act through false ego, not hearing Me, you will be lost.
    Bg 18.59  If you do not act according to My direction and do not fight, then you will be falsely directed. By your nature, you will have to be engaged in warfare.
    Bg 18.60  Under illusion you are now declining to act according to My direction. But, compelled by the work born of your own nature, you will act all the same, O son of Kuntī.
    Bg 18.61  The Supreme Lord is situated 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.
    Bg 18.62  O scion of Bharata, surrender unto Him utterly. By His grace you will attain transcendental peace and the supreme and eternal abode.

    SB 1.2.13 — 

    ataḥ pumbhir dvija-śreṣṭhā
    svanuṣṭhitasya dharmasya
     saṁsiddhir hari-toṣaṇam

    O best among the twice-born, it is therefore concluded that the highest perfection one can achieve by discharging the duties prescribed for one’s own occupation according to caste divisions and orders of life is to please the Personality of Godhead. 

    CC ADI 4.165
    ātmendriya-prīti-vāñchā--tāre bali 'kāma'

    kṛṣṇendriya-prīti-icchā dhare 'prema' nāma
    The desire to gratify one's own senses is kāma [lust], but the desire to please the senses of Lord Kṛṣṇa is prema [love]. 
    All scriptures of all religions including BG, SB, CC are meant to awaken this 'prema' 
    Other religions are not inferior to the Vedic system. They all give the same knowledge to varying extents. Even the Christian & Muslim religions accept re-incarnation, contrary to what many people think. 
    Here "heaven on earth" refers to the situation where whole population is focussed on pleasing the Lord, so there are no fights, poverty, corruption etc.. Then all people will be happy & this world will be a part of the Kingdom Of God. This can happen anytime if all people agree to change, not necessarily only in Satya Yuga
    Bg 18.57
    When one acts in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, he does not act as the master of the world. Just like a servant, one should act fully under the direction of th…
  • "Thereafter, at the conjunction of the two yugas, the Lord of creation will take His birth as the Kalki incarnation and become the son of Visnu Yasa. At this time the rulers of the earth will have degenerated into plunderers." [SB 1.3.25]

    0 Kesava, O Hari, who have assumed the form of Kalki! You appear like a comet and carry a terrifying sword for bringing about the annihilation of the wicked barbarian men at the end of the Kali-yuga. 
    [ Sri Dasavatara Stotra, 10th Sloka]

    "Lord Kalki, the Lord of the universe, riding His swift horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, will travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic powers and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequalled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves and rogues who have dared dress as kings." [SB. ]

     we can understand that Lord Kalki will simply chastise by killing all of the evil kings and rogues and thereby bring in a new era of enlightened beings, a race whose minds will be as clear as crystal. They will produce offspring that will follow the tendencies of real human beings as found in the age of Satya-yuga.

    Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.2.21-24) further describes that after all of the devious and fake kings have been killed, the remaining residents of the towns and cities will smell the breezes that carry the sacred aroma of the Lord's sandalwood paste and decorations, and their minds will then become spiritually purified. When the Supreme Being appears in their hearts in His form of pure goodness, the remaining citizens will abundantly repopulate the earth. With this appearance of Lord Kalki, Satya-yuga will begin again and the remaining humans will produce children in goodness. Thus, when the moon, the sun, and Jupiter are in the constellation Kartaka, Cancer, and together enter the lunar mansion of Pusya, that is when the age of Satya-yuga will begin. Therefore, as related in the Bhagavatam(12.2.34), after one thousand celestial years of Kali-yuga, Satya-yuga will again manifest. At that time the minds of men will be self-effulgent.
