  • Jai Sri Radhakrishna
    Respectful obesiences to Srila Prabhupada.
    I have a question actually, this thing has been troubling me for a long time now.
    I feel suffocated and my OCD makes it worse, so i need help with this.

    I was just listening to some lectures on Lord Krishna on YouTube after 12 a.m. and i had this sudden urge to search “do people actually blaspheme Lord Krishna? I did it, being sleepy and i was devastated and cried a lot later and not i do not feel like a devotee of Lord Krishna because i read on a website that said that when a devotee hears Lord Krishna being blasmphemed he must either leave that place, which in my case is YouTube i guess but i cannot do that because im a student and get study material from there and there is no temple anywhere near my place so I listen to bhajans there because i do not have any other sources, it may also be that i should not search that again but i have OCD so i have been thinking about this continuously so i wanted to ask, i cannot die because i have made serving Lord Krishna my aim in life and i cannot leave that because i really want to go to Him and i cannot fight back because i just read the title and was devastated, i cried a lot after that. Please help me. Am i still a devotee of Lord Krishna or do I have to start over? I am willing to do anything i have no problem even if i have to die but please answer this question fo mine. Im 16 years old right now. Also, i came across a blasmphemous question today and after answering it, i searched on youtube for how to deal with blasphemous content online. I came across the same video from earlier, i did have a strong hunch that that would happen and i shouldve covered the titles or paid attention somewhere else but without usnig much brain and ignoring it i just read all the titles and just like last time (i never watched the video, only read title and left) i read the title and scrolled so that it wasnt on my screen anymore. Have i committed the sin and am i still even a devotee anymore or have i lost my devotion and pious activities? If i have, can i start over?

  • Hare Krishna & Namaste,

    I am a beginner and am learning many new things. One thing I wonder is how Shiva relates to Brahman/Paramatma. I know that Brahman and Paramatma are features of the Supreme Lord, but when yogis feel /realize "Shiva" or say "Shivoham" are they bowing to a transformation of Brahman/Paramatma or something else? I know Shiva is like yogurt and Krishna is milk, but I would like to know the specifics on this if possible. Thank you, Haribol.

    • Brahman means we souls.paramatma (super soul) accompanied with soul to guide him,fulfilled the desire,and protect him.
    • Is Brahman the sum total of all souls then? Thanks. Haribol.

  • Rama Setu is 100 Yojan long and 10 Yojan wide, as mentioned in Sri Valmiki Ramayana, which is 800 miles long as Srila Prabhupada has accepted one Yojan equals to 8 miles,so how do we reconcile this scriptural quote with current distance between India and Sri Lanka , which is only about 30 KM of Indian Ocean?
    • continental drift, we do not know if the distance between India and Sri Lanka was same in Treta yuga as it is now.
    • Dandavats Hare Krishna,
      We dont have geographical map of treta yuga the period in which Ramayana took place. Please note that there is a hypothesis called as continental drift. So taking into consideration the scientific aspect of it, its possible in treta yuga, India and Lanka were separated by a larger distance. Hope this answers your question.

My question is little weird but i hope anyone gives me the perfect answer...

It is said that when we are in krishna consciousness and remember krishna at time of our death...we go back to the kingdom of Godhead...and we are free from birth and death.That means our soul goes back to Shri Krishna...instead of entering other body.Therefore i wanted to know that if our soul enters the kingdom of Godhead and never returns from where does the bodies at this material world gets another soul?Is it so that Shri Krishna , our eternal father sends new soul to this…
