Caste-Brāhmaṇa Guru (04/13/19)

Caste-Brāhmaṇa Guru (04/13/19) Dear _______, Śrī Śrī Guru Gaurāṅga jayate. My opinion is that the so-called _______ Swami is a rascal. Although he is supposed to be a disciple of our Śrīla Prabhupāda, he does not actually follow his guru or his parama-guru, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta. He was rejected from iskcon due to his having several illicit affairs with women when he was an iskcon Read more...

Bhakti-aṣṭāṅga-yoga (04/17/19)

Bhakti-aṣṭāṅga-yoga (04/17/19) Daṇḍavats _______ Prabhu, All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. Yoga or bhoga, that is the question! My āśrama in South India is located on the outskirts of Mysore, the present day capitol of ashtanga-yoga in India. The so-called aṣṭāṅga-yoga taught in Mysore that has spread around the world is certainly nothing more than a little haṭha-yoga. It is simply a cheating business in Read more...

Please Guru and Kṛṣṇa! (04/18/19)

Please Guru and Kṛṣṇa! (04/18/19) Dandavats _______ Prabhu, Śrī Śrī Guru Gaurāṅga jayate! Thank you for your email. I agree wholeheartedly. Prabhupāda has said that if we please Kṛṣṇa, others will be pleased automatically. Therefore, we do not have to endeavor to please anyone independent of Kṛṣṇa. All our endeavors should be to please guru and Kṛṣṇa. When and where there is real Kṛṣṇa Read more...

Garbhadhana Saṁskāra (05/05/19)

Garbhadhana Saṁskāra (05/05/19) Dear _______, Śrī Śrī Guru Gaurāṅga jayate. I have been very busy the past four days and did not see your email until this morning. My field of service is to guide devotees in the proper conception of the Absolute Truth. Although I do have other fields of interest in preaching such as ancient history, archeology and so on, I do Read more...

Coming in Contact with Kṛṣṇa (05/07/19)

Coming in Contact with Kṛṣṇa (05/07/19) Dear _______, Hare Kṛṣṇa! An interesting email. You must have the quality of compassion to do what you are going, trying to benefit those who are about to die and having had no realization or connection to Kṛṣṇa. In anyway that one comes in contact with Kṛṣṇa or His pure devotee is beneficial for the conditioned souls. What Read more...

Lalitā Prasāda (05/12/19)

Lalitā Prasāda (05/12/19) Dear  ______Maharaja, I did not say that Lalitā Prasāda was not qualified. I said he was inclined toward the solitary life of a bhajanānandī and not the preaching life. So he was given siddha-praṇālī.  Those with siddha-praṇālī and the sannyāsīs have the same rāga-mārga mantra. It is two ways of approaching the same goal, kṛṣṇa-prema. Otherwise, I am not qualified to Read more...

What are we actually preaching? (5/15/19)

What are we actually preaching? (5/15/19) Dandavats ________ Prabhu, All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. See the attached photo. It is _________’Swami'. He is an initiating guru and this kind of behavior goes unchecked. It is actually seen as progressive. So when Gurudeva does this, just imagine in future what low standards his disciples will have??? Did you know that there are no living disciples of Read more...

The ‘Good Old Days’ (05/15/19)

The ‘Good Old Days’ (05/15/19) Daṇḍavats ________ Prabhu, All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. What to say? The world has changed and the Hare Kṛṣṇa Movement with it. Maybe not for the best, but what can be done?? The institution has gone wonky/yampy/bonkers!!! The chances of reverting back to what devotees called the "good old days" is nil. In small groups or individually, YES, but Read more...

Preaching Means Fighting with Māyā (05/22/19)

Preaching Means Fighting with Māyā (05/22/19)Dandavats __________,Śrī Śrī Guru Gaurāṅga jayate!Thank you for your question and your appreciation of our Let's Talk videos.Those verses from Bhāgavatam are meant for the bhajanānandīs, not the gosthyānandīs (preachers of the madhyama-adhikārī class). A preacher, a guru, a sannyāsī and even a brāhmaṇa should show proper discrimination, and for an ācārya it is most important to point out the Read more...

Trying to Prove the Unprovable (06/06/19)

Trying to Prove the Unprovable (06/06/19) Dear ________ Prabhu, All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. I appreciate very much that you are reading and thus quoting Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja. Please continue in that way and you will find many more things of interest and of even greater value than arguing over that which can never be perceived perfectly. As Śukadeva Gosvāmī has stated: "My dear Read more...
