  • hare krishna....

    ur question seriously awesome and it is to be sorted out to everyone.....

    first of all the supreme has taken 10 incarnations, they are vamana,narasimha,matsya,kurma,varaha,parashurama,rama,balarama,krishna,kalki and buddha.All these incarnations were for certain cause and meaning. all the incarnations were took by mahavishnu so that he can kill the evil and serve the purpose, but sri ramchandra avtar is not like that ,lord vishnu himself promised to the world that he will be taking birth as a normal human being and lead a human life for 11,000 years and preach the world that how can a person reach the height of perfection and save the pious from the hands of the evil. 

    RAMA means- RA+MA,(RA and MA BOTH ARE BIJA AKSHARAS)

    where, RA= IS FROM THE NARAYANA ASHTAKSHARI MANTRA (OM NAMO NARAYANAYA)

               MA= IS FROM THE SHIVA PANCHAKSHRI MANTRA (OM NAMAH SHIVAYA)

    RAMA is the name which has the power of both lord vishnu and lord shiva.rama namam is enough to achieve all the desitinations of ur life.how a son should behave,how a brother should behave, how a responsible citizen should behave,how a master should behave,each and rama sets an role model at every stage of person's life.

    once before sri rama's incarnation in krutha yuga godess paravathi devi asks lord shiva that, which is powerfull amongst the vishnu names so that just by chanting the name it  kills all the evils inside and outside the world and to become pure for the inside of the to a common man what should be done? whom should the living entity worship?which vishnu  name should chanted?

    PARVATHYU UVACHA:

    " KENO PAYENA LAGUNA VISHNURNAMA SAHASRAKAM 

      PATYADER PANDITAIRNITYAM SHROTUMICHYAM MAHAYAM PRABHO"

    the lord shiva says

    ESHWARA UVACHA:

    " SRI RAMA RAMA RAMETI RAME RAME MANO RAME

      SAHASRANAMA TAT TULYAM RAMA NAMA VARNANE"

    lord shiva says ,paravathi rama is the only powerful name amogst the vishnu's 1000 names,and just by chanting it,it becomes equal to all other names of vishnu and it is only name through which a person can easily attain the moksha.

    u know what, rama is the only name amongst all the vishnu names which has BIJA AKSHARAS in it. to attain anything in a spiritual way bija akshras are more helpful as they are powerful ,as  the vedas says these letters(bija aksharas) and generated from the lord shiva's damruka dvani(sound of damarukam).

    RAMA NAMAM OR IT IS MAY BE LORD RAM HIMSELF BOTH ARE MORE POWERFUL AND PERFECT ROLE MODEL FOR A HUMAN LIFE

    RAMA HAS TAKEN BIRTH TO SHOW HOW A MAN SHOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.......................

    and coming to KRISHNA ,he is the causes of all causes he was born with four hands hold shanka,chakra,gadha,padma(i.e., the conch,discus,mace and lotus)so only KRISHNA is called as KRISHNA BAGHVAN.

    vedas said,

    KRUTHOU NARASIMHAYA

    TERTAYA RAGHUNANDANAHA

    DWAPARE VASUDEVASCHA

    KALAOU SRI VENKATANYAKAHA

     which means ,in kruta yuga he was narasimha,in treta yuga he was sri ramachandra ,in dwapara he is lord krishna and in kaliyuga he is lord venkateshwara srinivas govinda who is standing on the padma peetam in the ananda nilayam on seven hills at tirupathi.

    the material is same only the medium and view of accepting it is been changed.

    see,vishnu took narasimha avtar  not only to kill hiranyakashipu,but to preach and set an example to all the that even a devotee calls the lord with all the devotion,love and affection by surrendering unto him he will cum for sure to rescue.

    and rama avtar , as i said it was to preach how a man should behave with his responsibilities and with the world so that he will be a shining star the pages of the history .always dont study rama's story as a god's story insteady study and listen it as a human being's story then u will understand what should be done exactly in life...

    krishna avatar was taken to prech everyone that what is mother's love , the avatar preached that everything in this world is born for some purpose,krishna was born born to preach the dharma.as he the causes of all causes.

    and now lord srinivas govinda is incared to to save all the living entity from the kali purusha's evil hands,he stands on the padma peetam and take cares of each and everyone in this world.

    it may be ram or krishna the power is the one and the same.............as iskcon is founded on the basis of krishna bakthi.....so we have only krishna in our consiousness..............love and affection is one and the same.....

    its my opinion and suggestion,hopefully i have helped u in finding out the answer,any more queries u can ask me.

    yours friendly,

    vinay

  • Indeed Sri Ram , Sri Krishna and Sri Narayan are one but due to bhav or say anannyata in Bhakti a Bhagat sees Lord in his favoured form . Sri Hanumanji will never aspect Sri Krishna as his saviour but will always say "Jay Sri Ram" and indeed Sri Meera baiji will never aspect Sri Ram as her saviour . One thing to remember is all the three as mentioned as परम ब्रह्म in scriptures as: for Krishna : स कृष्ण पर ब्रह्म .......( sikshapatri ) . For Sri Ram : राम ब्रह्म परमार्थ रूपा ......( रामचरित मानस) .for Lord Narayan : नारायणम पर ब्रह्म तत्वन नारायणह परह...... ( श्री नारायण उपनिषद)
  • Dear Sinful,

    Hare Krishna,


    There are three types of devotees. Kanistha Adhikary, Madhyma Adhikary and Uthma Adhikary as we find in nectar of instruction.

    "A person who is very faithfully engaged in the worship of the Deity in the temple, but who does not know how to behave toward devotees or people in general is called a prākṛta-bhakta, or kaniṣṭha-adhikāri." They sometimes argue with others that this is correct and that is wrong.


    A madhyama-adhikārī has received spiritual initiation from the spiritual master and has been fully engaged by him in the transcendental loving service of the Lord. The madhyama-adhikārī should be considered to be situated midway in devotional service.


    The uttama-adhikārī, or highest devotee, is one who is very advanced in devotional service. An uttama-adhikārī is not interested in blaspheming others, his heart is completely clean, and he has attained the realized state of unalloyed Kṛṣṇa consciousness. According to Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, the association and service of such a mahā-bhāgavata, or perfect Vaiṣṇava, are most desirable.


    Each devotee should try to elevate himself to the level of Utama Adhikary and should not Blasphemy others irrespective of whatever he is saying.


    Without doubt Krishnaraj Melvin and Dr Melvin Mabalay are introducing new concepts in this forum which has not been said by Srila Prabhupada and in his books. In such a situation one has to simply reject such concepts and remain faraway from such concepts. Whatever is said in scriptures alone one should accept.

    I am mainly posting for the neophyte devotees who are joining this forum to make sure that, posts made by Krishnaraj Melvin and Dr Melvin Mabalay, don't misguide them.


    Haribol,
    S.Balaji.
  • My dear Hare Krishna devotees,

    There is something I want to confide. I love Srila Prabhupada. In fact, I consider him my Vani Guru. I can not recall how many times I cried whenever I remember His Divine Grace in his book Prabhupada written by Satsvarup Dasa Goswami. There is a page there where Srila Prabhupad stayed in a home in Philadelphia. In that decent home where His Divine Grace stayed, a little girl who observed Prabhupada seating in the sofa chanting silently with his beads. Never saying a word until this cute little girl called to her mommy pointing at this old man and said, " Mommy! Look..It's Swami Jesus! " With those words, Srila Prabhupad was hit by a thunderbolt. His Divine Grace smiled at them and said, " And a little child shall lead them. " This is very significant because he is giving us a hint as to who he really is. I even tell jokingly to my friends that if one is waiting for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Lord has already arrived and left! Can't you see in your heart? Srila Prabhupad is Swami Jesus. If you dont know this by now then you have missed the boat.

    Haribol always,

    Krsnaraja Melvin
  • balaji yeh gadha paagal ho chukka hai. aap mat uljho. mujhe sirf itna batao ki issay main kaise deal karu. main jahan bhi jaata hoon yeh wahan heehaw karta rehta hai. moderator bhi koi madat nahi kar raha hai

  • Hare Krishna ,

    Dear Dr Melvin Mabalay,


    Whenever we have a doubt in physics we take a physics book and try to clarify the doubt. If we are not able to understand the physics book we approach a physics teacher and he clarifies our doubt. The physics teacher never adds or deletes anything in the physics book. He simply explains the concepts in physics book such that we can understand it.

    As far as Srila Prabhupada is concerned he happens to be perfect spiritual teacher. He never added anything to Bhagavad gita or Bhagavatam or deleted anything from scriptures. He simply explained scriptures to common man such that they can understand it without adding or deleting anything from them.

    Which scripture says Balaram Charaka as Jesus Christ. Is it said in Gita or Bhagawatam. As far as iskcon is concerned we go as per Srila Prabhupada and his books. Anything else we reject. Has Srila Prabhupada ever said Balaram Charaka as Jesus Christ. If Srila Prabhupada has not said it, then nobody in iskcon is going to accept Balaram Charaka as Jesus Christ.

    Apart from that I am student of Sankarshan Das Adhikary who is a direct disciple of Srila Prabhupada and is an initiating Spiritual master in iskcon. As far as jesus christ is concerned my gurudeva Sankarshan Das Adhikary has replied number of times about jesus christ and here is what he learnt from his spiritual master Srila Prabhupada. Here are the following links

  • Basically Krishna's Mercy is Greatest, Rama's mercy is in the mood of Goodness, however, that lifestyle standard is difficult to qualify for, where as Krishna being the Head God's of all the GUNAS-goodness passion & ignorance He alone can meet anyone & everyone where they are. Rama/VISHNU can't won't & don't provide the benediction of His consciousness & energie's in supporting everyone-Like Krishna does.
  • Yes demands are hear in this world, in great congregations.
    So don't be upset with them.

    Sri Rama-rasa-krida
    Lord Balarama’s Rasa Dance

    Text 1

    duryodhana uvacha muni-shardula bhagavan balabhadro naga-kanyabhir gopibhih kada kalindi-kule vijahara.

    Duryodhana said: O tiger of sages, when did Lord Balarama enjoy the rasa dance on the Yamuna’s shore with gopis that had been snake-girls in their previous birth?

    Text 2

    shri-pradvipaka uvacha ekada dvaraka-nagarad dhi talankam ratham asthapya suran didrikshuh param utkantho nanda-raja-gokula-go-gopala-gopi-gana-sankulah sankarshana agatash chirotkanthabhyam nandaraja-yashodabhyam parishvakto gopi-gopala-gobhir militva tatra dvau masau vasantikau cavatsit.

    shri Pradvipaka Muni said: One day, eager to see His devotees, Lord Balarama mounted His chariot bearing a palm-tree flag, left Dvaraka, and, yearning to see the gopas, gopis, and cows, went to Gokula. Yashoda and King Nanda embraced Him when He arrived. Later He met with the gopas and gopis. He stayed there for two months.

    The previously described snake-girls became gopis and, in order to attain Lord Balarama’s association, on Garga Muni’s advice followed the five methods of worshiping Lord Balarama. In this way they became perfect. Pleased with them, Lord Balarama enjoyed a rasa-dance with them on the full-moon night of the month of Caitra (March-April), a night when the red moon reddened the whole of Vrindavana forest.

    Cooling, gentle, delightful, lotus-pollen filled breezes pushed the Yamuna’s waves and blew to the splendid shore. Then the land of Vraja became very splendid, its many forest groves and courtyards filled with the fragrant pollen of playfully and gracefully blossoming flowers, with the cooing of cuckoos and peacocks, and with the sweet humming of bees.

    Decorated with tinkling ankle-bells, glittering gold and jewel necklace, armlets, belt, crown, and earrings, and with many lotus petals, dressed in blue garments, and His eyes like glittering lotus petals, Lord Balarama was splendid with the gopis in the rasa-dance circle. He was like Kuvera surrounded by a host of beautiful yakshis.

    Then, sent by the demigod Varuna, Goddess Varuni, in the form of honey oozing from the hollows of trees filled with the humming of bees made greedy by the sweet scent of the flowers, made the entire forest very fragrant. Eager to drink that honey, His eyes now red lotus flowers, His limbs weakened by enjoying amorous pastimes, perspiration born from the fatigue of His pastimes now streaming down His cheeks and washing away the pictures and designs drawn there, walking like an elephant king, decorated with mighty arms like the trunks of elephant kings, as if intoxicated, sitting on a throne, relinquishing His plow, His club still in His hand, splendid like ten million full moons, His jewel anklets, bracelets, and other ornaments tinkling, His gold earrings, necklaces, finger-rings, and jewel crown glittering, and surrounded by beautiful gopis, their cheeks decorated with graceful pictures and designs and their black braids mocking the beautiful snake girls, Lord Balarama, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the master of the worlds, shone with great splendor, and enjoyed transcendental pastimes.

    His lotus face covered with perspiration born from the fatigue of wandering along the Yamuna’s shore and enjoying many pastimes, Lord Balarama called for the Yamuna to come to Him so He could bathe and enjoy water-pastimes. When the Yamuna did not come, Lord Balarama became angry and began to drag it to Him, scratching its shore with the tip of His plow. Lord Balarama said:

    Text 8

    “Today you have no respect for Me. Even though I call, you ignore My order and go your own way as you wish. Now I will divide you into a hundred tiny streams.” Rebuked with these words and now very afraid, the Yamuna came before Lord Balarama, fell at His feet, and said:

    Text 9

    “Rama! Rama! Sankarshana! Balabhadra! O mighty-armed one! I did not know Your great power. The entire earth is seen resting like a single tiny mustard-seed on one of Your many heads. It is proper for You to release me, who have now surrendered to You and who did not know Your true glories. You should release me because You are always affectionate to Your devotees.

    Text 10

    Begged in this way, Lord Balarama released the Yamuna. Then He enjoyed in the Yamuna’s waters, as an elephant enjoys with its many wives. When He returned to the shore the Yamuna approached and gave Him gifts of many blue garments and many ornaments of gold and jewels. Lord Balarama divided the gifts among the girls, giving some to each gopi. Then He dressed in one of the blue garments and decorated Himself with a necklace of gold and nine kinds of jewels. Then He enjoyed with the gopis as the king of elephants enjoys with its many wives.
