  • Hare Krishna!

    I am totally aware of the fact that meat-eating is a violation of 1 of the 4 regulative principles and I don't support such activities in the following question below.

    In Islam, they are encouraged to eat meat as they justify from the Koran that Allah has allowed them to do so by following a procedure of Halal in
    which an animal is humanely tortured in the slaughterhouse. As a permissible procedure of the Islamic method of Sacrifice, it's not a sin as per Islam.
    Therefore, will Muslims eating meat get Karma for this even though they are sacrificing the meat to their God?

    The original question was asked here-

    Hare Krishna!

  • Dear Devotees, 
    I am writing to you on behalf of Food for Life Vrindavan. 

    Every year at FFLV we celebrate Srila Prabhupada's Appearance day by hosting a special feast for 1500 children at our schools. The feast includes Rice Pulao, Poori, Sabzi, Choley & Gulab Jamun (Srila Prabhupada’s Favourite). 

    This would cost Rs 60/- per person which is equivalent to Rs 90,000 (approx $1400 USD)

    This year the feast will be hosted on 16th of August, 2017 at the Sandipani Muni School, Vrindavan. 1500 Brajwasi kids will enjoy the Prasadam & remember Our Dear Srila Prabhupada!

    If you would like to sponsor this feast partially or fully and receive the blessings these brajwasis, please write to us at info@fflvrindavan.org or call/message/whatsapp at (0091)7895002907.
    You are welcome to personally attend the feast with your family if you are in Vrindavan.
    If you are unable to, we shall send you the photos. 
    Let us know your thoughts.
    Your Servant

  • Hare Krishna Manisha mataji! First of all I like your question which is a common complain among us. With my small fund of knowledge I would try to answer your question.

    - we need to find out what is the underlying reason why someone behaving unexpectedly. 

    - we have to avoid anger and should not jump to the conclusion from his/her behaviour at a certain situation

    - Someone's prejudiced behaviour is not based on reason or actual experience. That means the person is acting only to hurt you because somehow he/she was hurt from your direct or indirect behaviour or action. 

    - Instead of becoming angry or upset for his/her behaviour, we should openly ask him or find out what is the cause of misunderstanding. 

    - Once the reason is known, it would be easy to explain him/her that what was perceived from your unwanted action/ behaviour was baseless. 

    - it is most important to talk to the person openly in a humble manner avoiding anger and make the person understand your actual position. 

    - in any situation, we have to act/react sensibly and make other person understand our honesty, sincerity and openness. Nothing wrong asking to forgive if he/she got hurt because of my unintentional behaviour.

    -if you can make the person understand you then his/her anger will go away and will become a friend again. 

    I understand it is a difficult situation to overcome. However, if you handle the situation in cool brain, you will  not only be able to avoid further consequences, but also help him understand that prejudiced actions are not always appropriate. 

    Hope it helps.

    Hare Krishna and accept my pranam.
