All glories to Srila Prabhupada,

I have a friend who is downright atheistic.He posts all kinds of material and not nice spiritual things(like Mayavada etc).How to deal with such people?(ignore/unfriend/explain KC philosophy).

It is my humble request that any Vaishnava can answer this question.

Hari bol,

Your aspiring servant,

Sasank (a servant of Krishna and His devotees)

  • i think you should first try to know whether he is innocent or grossly envious of Krsna..If innocent he may accept the philosophy of KC if properly presented-for this Prabhupada's books are very helpful, e.g. Perfect Questions Perfect Answers; but don't ever let him feel that he is being preached by you. For this you have to show your smartness...also devise means to bring him in contact with the Holy Name-Let the Holy Name act on him-he will surely change...association of devotees will also change him. So in short give him as much association as possible in the so many available forms such as Holy Name, Devotees, Prashad, Kirtans, Photos etc.

    If he is grossly envious of Krsna, then give him prashad and pray for him...Prashad never fails...

  • Hare Krishna

    Have a peaceful chat with him, and tell why we see disparities in human beings (Poor, Rich, Handsome, Ugly, Handicapped)

    Give examples like:

    Sometimes children from same parents are not the same, one is mentally and physically strong and other is physically and mentally handicapped.(Who is deciding this? If there is no god) If he calls it luck, ask who is deciding this luck.

    Ask him what is the reason for someone to be a prodigy? did they parents teach things when they are in the womb?

    Ask him whether if he can see air/ soul, and this doesn't mean air/ soul is not there.

    Ask him why doctors are not able to make a dead person alive, despite there is so much technology?

    Ask him why some human beings die, before they complete 60/70 years? and some live till 90 years?

    Who is controlling all these? Its none other than the Supreme Powerful Omnipotent Omnipresent Lord Shri Krishna.

    Some quotes from great scientists

    • “This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being.” – Issac Newton (Discovered gravitational force)
    • “There is a perfect brain behind all the natural physical laws.” – Albert Einstein (Discovered about Energy)
    • “If you think strongly enough, you will be forced by science to believe in God.” – Kelvin (Invented thermometer)
    •  “I think only an idiot can be an atheist. We must admit that there exists an incomprehensible power or force with limitless foresight and knowledge that started the whole universe going in the first place.” - Christian Anfinsen (Nobel Laureate in chemistry)
    • To the Lord, whom I worship and thank, That governs the heavens with His eyelid To Him I return tired, but full of living.” – Galileo (Founder of experimental physics)

    Some people cannot change there behavior, so easily; Try to help him as much as you can;

    Devotion is also a great blessing from Lord Krishna, and to enjoy it one should be a lucky soul.

    So try to help him, have pity for his ignorance, and pray Lord Krishna that he should become a enlightened soul.
