Tukaram Das replied to Jj's discussion Family life
" You could find another aspiring devotee and assist each other. Or you could stay single. There is certainly nothing wrong with staying single. Marriage has its own set of difficulties. Breaking free of maya has its own set of difficulties.  It is…"

Tukaram Das replied to Sangam Pandey's discussion Does every soul has three gunas by default?
"I mean no disrespect to any sages or demigods, but... Lord Chaitanya came after, and said chanting Hare Krishna is all anyone needs for this age.  Anyone. That is the new rule. If there was an older rule, it was for a different time. So when I say…"

"Totally bogus.  Krishna would never discourage bhakti.  Chanting and bhakti are what liberates a soul... but the OP says some souls are not allowed to practice bhakti?  Bogus. "

"In my opinion, I would say to remove the beads and offer them. A mistake made in excitement to serve is understandable. We try not ot make mistakes, but accidents happen, especially while we are learning.

"Taking your list one item at a time.
1. Krishna. Krishna says chant Hare Krishna and go back to godhead. 
According to the Bhagvatam the guru is worth the sum total of all the demigods. If we worship guru and Krishna, that is all we need.  Even the…"

"If you want to be a devotee, and you want to marry, it would be best to marry a devotee wife.  A non-devotee wife would be a problem with your sadhana or your marriage, likely both. Marriage is certainly not a requirement, but some people are…"

"There is a course to take?  When did that start?  It is not a bad idea, but that must be relatively new.
My guru asked me if I had been following the regs and chanting 16 rounds for at least 6 months. I said yes. Actually a course would have been a…"

Tukaram Das replied to Hosein Geraili's discussion brghu-samhita astrologer

"I have never read any of his teachings, so do not know what he did or did not say.  But... Lord Chaitanya, Srila Prbhupada, and our entire line of disciplic succession never said it (to my knowledge).  They say the maha mantra and bhakti allow…"

"They have some of the best quality pictures I have seen. I have many of those pictures, but not at that high qualty.
