Hare Krishna !

Dandavats to all the great devotees of the Lord.

We Iskconites are the only people who are not seriously praying for the welfare of others.

HAre Krishna Prabhus and Mathaji's, we all claim to be pure devotees of the Lord and yet turn a blind eye to the suffering of others. We should strive to take care of others.

Afterall  we all claim to be vaishnavites and don't try to live by the true spirit of a Vaishanava, ( Atleast I don't)

According to Narasinh Mehta's Bhajan VAishnava Janato :-

 "One who is a true devotee of Krishna ( Vaishnava)

Feels the pain of others
Helps those who are in misery
But never lets ego or pride enter his mind
Respects the entire world
He does not belittle anyone
He  keeps  his words, actions and thoughts pure
sees all equally, renounces greed and avarice
Views others as extensions of his family
Their tongue might get tired, but he will never speak falsehood
His hands would never touch the property of another
does not succumb to worldly attachments
Detached from worldly pleasures
encompasses the absence of greed and deceit
Renounced all types of lust and anger
The author of this poem (Narsi) would be grateful to meet such a soul
By who's virtue, liberates their entire lineage"
We should all strive to live by this spirit and become true Vaishnavites and serve the World.
May Krishna bless us in this endeavour.
All glories to Shri Guru and Gauranga for giving me the Opportunity to express my views.
Hare Krishna
Your Humble Servant

    Hare KRsna Prabhuji,

    Dandvat pranam.

    Where did you get this idea from that ISKCON people don't pray for anyone? We are forever praying for everyone around, for any and every natural and unnatural calamity that occurs around us, even in the news if we hear. The only difference is - our prayers are chanting the mahamantra and doing haribol.

    Yesterday, you have been part of praying in chat - when everyone was chanting mahamantra once for one devotee.

    The most powerful of medicines for all diseases, material and spiritual is the mahamantra. We distribute books, which is making devotees. We distribute prasadam, which is spreading the mercy of the lord and making devotees. We distribute harinaam through nagar sankirtan, again so many people are attracted and their hearts melt.

    Our philosophy is itself saying - Vaishnava is one who is para dukkha dukhi - sad at the sorry plight of others.

    Where did you get this idea from prabhuji?

    There is no flaw in our philosophy. Application of the philosophy depends on individual sadhaka.

    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
