What is the destiny of others?

Hare Krishna,

Every religion or faith says that their scripture is ultimate path to the Supreme Lord.

Some say Lord Krishna is the Supreme, some say Lord Shiva, Some Durga devi,

Islam say Quran and Allah, Bible say it is Jesus etc. Sanatana dharma is known to

the limited part of the world. If Sanatana Dharma is  so strong and deep then how does

it is lost. Why Majority of the world follow Islam or Christianity? I read little about Islam to

find if there is any similarity or link with Sanatana Dharma but couldn't find any. Most part

of our scriptures is inconceivable and hard to explain self and others about its validity.

What happens to devotees after death and what happens to devotees of other religions.

Does Lord differentiate between devotees? If so, do you think it is fair?

Why Srimadbhagavatam is considered to be the ultimate truth and why not other scriptures?

    Hare Krsna 

    Why Majority of the world follow Islam or Christianity?

    When Hiranyakasipu was king the whole universe was practising and worshipping Hiranyakashipu as god. But only son his was devotee of Lord Vishnu. Guess who won ? Majority means nothing.

    There are different paths to god for different people at various level. People are motivated by different things

    Motivation by Fear : If you don't follow this process you will burn in Hell 

    Motivation by desire : If you follow  this process you will go to heaven

    Motivation by duty : You should follow this process as gratitude to our well being

    Motivation by love : This is the highest process of all religious principle. The Bhagavata Dharma. We are part and parcel of Krsna and we have an eternal loving relationship with Krsna.Our constitutional position is to love and serve Krsna. 

    Majority means nothing, or less than nothing.

    Most part of our scriptures is inconceivable and hard to explain self and others about its validity.

    Which part of which scripture have you read ? Which have you tried to explain to others without understanding yourself ?

    What happens to devotees after death  ?

    anta-kāle ca mām eva
    smaran muktvā kalevaram
    yaḥ prayāti sa mad-bhāvaṁ
    yāti nāsty atra saṁśayaḥ

    And whoever, at the end of his life, quits his body remembering Me alone at once attains My nature. Of this there is no doubt. (BG 8.5)

    and what happens to devotees of other religions.

    yaṁ yaṁ vāpi smaran bhāvaṁ
    tyajaty ante kalevaram
    taṁ tam evaiti kaunteya
    sadā tad-bhāva-bhāvitaḥ

    Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, O son of Kuntī, that state he will attain without fail. (BG 8.6)

    Does Lord differentiate between devotees?

    No 

    samo ’haṁ sarva-bhūteṣu
    na me dveṣyo ’sti na priyaḥ
    ye bhajanti tu māṁ bhaktyā
    mayi te teṣu cāpy aham

    I envy no one, nor am I partial to anyone. I am equal to all. But whoever renders service unto Me in devotion is a friend, is in Me, and I am also a friend to him. (BG 9.29)

    If so, do you think it is fair?

    Yes

    Why Srimadbhagavatam is considered to be the ultimate truth and why not other scriptures?

    dharmaḥ projjhita-kaitavo ’tra paramo nirmatsarāṇāṁ satāṁ
    vedyaṁ vāstavam atra vastu śivadaṁ tāpa-trayonmūlanam
    śrīmad-bhāgavate mahā-muni-kṛte kiṁ vā parair īśvaraḥ
    sadyo hṛdy avarudhyate ’tra kṛtibhiḥ śuśrūṣubhis tat-kṣaṇāt

    Completely rejecting all religious activities which are materially motivated, this Bhāgavata Purāṇa propounds the highest truth, which is understandable by those devotees who are fully pure in heart. The highest truth is reality distinguished from illusion for the welfare of all. Such truth uproots the threefold miseries. This beautiful Bhāgavatam, compiled by the great sage Vyāsadeva [in his maturity], is sufficient in itself for God realization. What is the need of any other scripture? As soon as one attentively and submissively hears the message of Bhāgavatam, by this culture of knowledge the Supreme Lord is established within his heart. ( SB 1.1.2)

  • Hàre Krsna

    All glories to Sri Guru,srila Prabhupāda,Sri Gaurānga Nityānanda,Sri Rādha Krsña,to all Vaisnavas and devotees.

    The every religion ,faith, schools of spirituality directly or indirectly teaching the path of liberation and ultimate supreme being. dharmam tu sāksād bhagavat-pranītam ,the word  dharma refers to the order given by God,An Individual citizen cannot manufactured the state laws since laws are given by government, similarly  Islam , Christianity , Hinduism etc the such religions appeared by the order of the supreme lord according to time and circumstances,as some of the point Radha Rasamayi Mataji  have explained very well

     

    The vedic religion( Sanatan Dharma) is the first religion which is the topmost and perfect science this knowledge has been manifested from the intelligence of the supreme lord

    In the first three age of satya ,treta ,dwapara yuga the most of the population of the entire earth was Vedic but in the 4th age of iron (kali yuga ) which starts 5000 yrs ago or we can say 3000 yrs before the birth of Christ

    So,in the starting of Kali yuga population of low class people like Māllechas (white peoples),yāvanas(Arabic peoples),chāndalas (meat, dog eaters )etc has  certainly increased over the globe who have  no knowledge of self and God, nothing about aim of human life who cannot understand the High vedic philosophy so for that representatives of the supreme lord Sri krsnã   like Jesus Christ , Prophet Muhammad had appeared to atleast make to know them about that their is something like a controlling supreme entity which is known as God,yahova, Allah who is supreme father 

    The understanding given in different religion is just like difference between  the knowledge to 1st standard students and 12 th standard students .

    Hare Krsna Aakash Prabhu,

    PAMHO.

    Sanatan dharma is the oldest religion. In your research, you would have arrived at the same conclusion. If you didnt, pls research more.

    Like a small child is called by different names by different family members, same way God also has different names. So what is the problem?

    If you have done research, you will know that Jesus Christ never called himself God, he called himself "Son of God". Prophet Mohammed called himself Paigambar - meaning messenger. So self proclaimed - htey were both not God - one was son of God and one was messenger of God. So where is the dispute? 

    Regarding Durga and Shiva - Durga is mahamaya - who is responsible for Durg - fortress - thsi material world. Siva is unborn - another form of lord. The analogy given is of milk and curd. Curd comes from milk, but is not milk. Same way, Shiva comes from Krsna, but is not Krsna. 

    All these things are already known to you - you have been in the movement long enough to know the basics.

    What happens to devotees after death and what happens to devotees of other religions. 0 mentioned in Gita - prapya punya krtiam lokan.....sucinam srimatam gehe, yoga bhrashtobi jayate and the next shloka of Ch 6. I am sure you are aware.

    Does Lord differentiate between devotees? If so, do you think it is fair? - Mental speculation. Lord sees the heart of the deovtee, thats all.

    Why Srimadbhagavatam is considered to be the ultimate truth and why not other scriptures? Because it is. Any doubts - read Srimad Bhagawatam. Your doubts will get cleared.

    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD

  • Krishna and His devotees Avatar into every Spiritual Religion on the planet, and have created them and continue to maintain them. Muhammed, Buddha, and Jesus are taught to be full Shaktyavesa-avataras of Krishna by Prabhupada. Similarly the same Spirit is prevalent in Sikhism. Sanatana Dharma is prevalent in every Spiritual Path on the planet, because it encompasses the rendering of Transcendental Loving Service in Spiritual Devotion to God. Every religion, to some extent, maintains the Holy Name in this Yuga, and we as Hare Krishnas tend to be a pillar in it's chanting. Hari Sankritan is such a precious gift, so keep chanting! Hare Krishna.
