Thought Of The Day

Everyone is falsely thinking independent, but he is dependent. But he is depending on false platform. That is the mistake of this material civilization. They are thinking of protection from a tiltering platform, material world. So we have to take shelter of Krsna. Krsna is very friendly to all of us. Therefore he comes down from Vaikuntha to inform this, that is Bhagavad-gita.

Question: A Tendency Non-Existent in God?

 

 

Srila Prabhupada states in the Sri Caitanya-caritamrita, Adi-lila, 5.89:

"The tendency to lord it over material nature, or maya cannot be a feature of the Supreme Personality of Godhead."

But we have also learned from the verses:  "janmadyasya yatah" and "aham sarvasya prabhavah" that any tendency possessed by the living entities must have originated from the Supreme Lord, otherwise it cannot exist in us. How to reconcile this?

Thought Of The Day

So for that eternal position, you have to make krsna-devatah, Krsna as the worshipable Deity. Krsna is eternal, and if you fix up your service to Krsna, then Krsna will accept you as servant. Naturally, you become eternal.

Thought Of The Day

So there is a version by Krsna that one who is anxious to take Krsna consciousness, but he is entrapped by this binding -- nice wife, nice children, nice home, nice bank balance -- so Krsna, in order to give them, give such devotee, facility, He takes away. Just like he did with the Pandavas. The Pandavas were devotees, but at the same time, they were king. There was attachment. So therefore Krsna took away their everything -- their kingdom, their wife, their position, their honor -- test…

Is there any hope of Krishna’s loving protection for a falling down devotee ?

Topic : Hope Is there any hope of Krishna’s loving protection for a falling down devotee ?

 

 

My dear Uddhava, if My devotee has not fully conquered his senses, he may be harassed by material desires, but because of his unflinching devotion for Me (Lord Krishna), he will not be defeated by sense gratification. …But even though one’s senses are not fully conquered, one who has unflinching devotion for Lord Krishna does not run the risk of being separated…

The “law of gravity” is imaginary

Posted on April 20, 2012 Filed under BVKS Sanga

 

…the hundreds and thousands of stars and the great planets such as the sun, the moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter are not clustered together because of the law of gravity or any similar idea of the modern scientists. These planets and stars are all servants of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Govinda or Krsna, and according to His order they sit in their chariots and travel in their respective orbits. The orbits in which…

Sri Sankaracarya wanted to establish the predominance of one's spiritual identity; therefore he…

Celebrate India - Holi

By Krishna-kumara Dasa I’m out traveling again, and yesterday our party visited the University of Santa Barbara in California. After a full day of sankirtan, it was time to go back to the van. So, praying to do something to please my spiritual master and Krsna, I decided to try to distribute one more book. As I passed by a young couple, I didn’t even seriously approach them because they appeared to be stereotypical athlete-cheerleader people. At this point I was just hunting for an obvious…
