Thought For The Day: The Appearance Day of Lord Nityananda

Austin, Texas USA

Here in Austin, 17 February is this year the appearance day of Lord Nityananda. In a letter dated 21 January 1970 Srila Prabhupada very nicely describes a most wonderful pastime of Lord Nityananda in which we can see how merciful he is:

"Lord Nityananda, when passing on the street, saw a crowd of people howling at some incident, and on inquiry it was found that there were two rascals of the name Jagai and Madhai. They were always disturbing people in drunken condition. Nityananda Prabhu thought it wise that these two brothers may be delivered so that Lord Caitanya’s mercy could be well-known all over the world. When Lord Nityananda approached them He was immediately hurt by violent attack. On this incident Lord Caitanya became very angry and He called for His Sudarsana cakra to kill these debauchees. Lord Nityananda then implored Lord Caitanya not to kill Jagai and Madhai but to save them. By this time, Jagai and Madhai came to their senses and immediately they surrendered unto both the Lords and were delivered by the mercy of Lord Nityananda. So Lord Nityananda or Baladeva is the original Spiritual Master, and such a pure devotee sometimes takes the risk of life in order to reclaim a person who might have otherwise been rejected by the Lord. The devotee knows that the Lord wants all the fallen souls to come back to home, and therefore the devotees always try to induce the conditioned souls to take to Krishna Consciousness by various ways and means. Therefore the conclusion is that a devotee is more kind than the Lord Himself."

Question: Is God Playing Hide Seek?

God is playing hide and seek, and the countless people all over the world are paying the price with suffering and agony. Is this what's really happening?

Ahmad Hamama

Answer: We Are Foolishly Hiding from God

Ahmad,

It is the just the opposite. God is offering Himself to us, “Here I am, take Me,” but we are hiding from God. We are refusing to accept His most magnanimous offer.

Thought For The Day: There Are No Real Atheists

Austin, Texas USA

We talk about atheists and there are truly millions of them. But in a higher sense there are no real atheists because everyone, even the most stubborn atheist, will sooner or later bow down to God. How is that? Krishna, who is God Himself, declares in the Bhagavad-gita that He is death. So show me one atheist who is not going to die. All of them will accept God in the form of death. They will all bow down to Him. But we devotees have a nicer form of God with whom we associate.

Question: Is God Ignoring Us?

Answer: We Are Ignoring God

He is doing everything to rectify the situation, but we are so stubborn and foolish that we refuse to listen to Him or accept the solution that He is giving us. It’s like someone has a health emergency and the medics and the ambulance have come to save him, but he is so foolish that he refuses to unlock the door to allow the medics to come in.

Thought For The Day: Does the Universe Come From Nothing?

Austin, Texas USA

Dr. Stephen Hawking (see the video below) presents the theory that the universe came out of nothing. And he is supposed to be one of the world's leading scientists. But where is the evidence that even one thing can be created out nothing? Can the scientists produce even one grain of rice out nothing? No, they cannot. But now we are expected to have blind faith in the words of Dr. Hawking that everything has come from nothing. We are supposed to think that he has discovered the secret of the origin of the universe. This reminds me of the saying, "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread." If the people in general want to be fools, that is their business. I prefer to use some common sense and be at least a little intelligent.

Thought For The Day: Attracting All Living Entities

Austin, Texas USA

From the very beginning of my spiritual path in 1968 I have always had the desire to attract the whole world to the spiritual platform. So when I discovered in my reading the Srimad Bhagavatam in the summary study of the 25th chapter of its 5th Canto Srila Prabhupada's explanation that "Sankarshan" is a name of God which means "one who attracts all living entities" I was very, very happy. Of course I am not Sankarshan. I am Sankarshan Das, the servant of Sankarshan. But still that the particular Lord who I am named after has this specific quality of attracting all living entities is very encouraging to me. So now I am praying to my beloved Lord Sankarshan that He kindly bless me that I can now attract the whole world to His most glorious and auspicious Krishna consciousness movement.

Thought For The Day: The Whole World is Waiting

Austin, Texas USA

The whole world is simply waiting to be awakened from the sleep of maya or illusion into pure love of God, Krishna consciousness, because this is the only thing that will truly satisfy the self. Everything else is simply a state of mental agitation. Therefore those who take up the service of awakening the sleeping souls will experience the greatest joy and happiness as they compassionately engage themselves as messengers of the Supreme Lord. Such dedicated souls are especially recognized by the Lord as heroes and are given all protection and benediction as they engage in the topmost welfare activity of awakening the dormant Krishna consciousness, which is currently sleeping in the hearts of all beings.

So if you want to live the most satisfying, adventurous, exciting, heroic, and fulfilling life possible dedicate your life fully for awakening your Krishna consciousness and the Krishna consciousness of all. You will be riding at the every minute the crest of Lord Caitanya's mercy tidal wave for the unlimited benefit for all the suffering souls of this age.

Thought For The Day: There Are No Atheists

ISKCON Austin, Texas, USA

God is defined as the Supreme Being. And in this material world everyone, even the dog, considers himself to be the Supreme Being. Therefore atheists do not actually exist. Simply people have the wrong conception of who is God. That is the difficulty. But if one is honest, not in a cheating mentality, it is not difficult to know who is God. According the great Vedic authority, Parasara Muni, God is that person who excels all in possessing these six opulences: power, beauty, renunciation, knowledge, wealth, and fame. Anyone who claims to be God must demonstrate that he surpasses all others in the possession of these six opulences. This is the specific qualification of Lord Sri Krishna and the reason that we accept Him as God. We do not blindly accept Him as the Supreme Being. We only accept Him as the Supreme Being because He far surpasses all others in the possession of these opulences.

Thought For The Day: Atheists Have Got It All Wrong

ISKCON Austin, Texas, USA

The atheists would have us believe that everything comes from nothing or from hydrogen, which comes out of nothing. But this is complete rubbish. Everything comes from something. Nothing comes from nothing. And that original something is Krishna or God. When the global population wakes up and understands this simple, basic truth, the entire earth planet will experience the greatest era of peace and happiness that has been experienced on this planet in many thousands of years. Therefore our lives are fully dedicated to waking up the world until our last dying breath and even beyond that. If Krishna wants we are willing to take birth after birth until the whole world becomes Krishna conscious.

Thought For The Day: Turn On Your Real Self

Austin, Texas USA

In this material world we are programmed from the minute we come out of the womb with a false conception of the self. The first thing we hear when coming out is, "It's a boy," or "It's a girl." We are immediately being programmed into a false bodily conception of what is the actual self. But when one is fortunate enough to come into contact with a bona fide spiritual master, he gets the knowledge that he is not his body, that he is instead the eternal spiritual being who just happens, according to his karma, to have taken a particular type of body here in this material world. The bona fide guru then teaches you how to live your life in such a way that you will never take birth again here in this material world. He teaches you how to regain your original form and identity you once had in the spiritual world before you fell into this problematic material existence.

Thought For The Day: Atheism Solidly Defeated

ISKCON Austin, Texas, USA

Just as Sir Issac Newton scientifically deduced the law of gravity by seeing an apple falling from the apple tree, we can also scientifically deduce by seeing thousands and millions of machines that have operators that every machine therefore must have an operator. Thus it is logical and indeed scientific to deduce that the gigantic cosmic machine, the whole in which we currently live, also requires an operator. To conclude that it does not is descending into sheer dogmatism. It is not at all being logical and scientific. Thus atheism is solidly defeated.

Thank you very much for kindly and compassionately answering my question, taking time out from your busy schedule. I am very grateful for your daily sending such wonderful Krishna conscious mails.

I see that you are so eager to spread Krishna consciousness that, even though at such an advanced age, your determination to spread this movement is not reduced. For this purpose, you travel all around the world, following in the footsteps of Srila Prabhupada. This clearly shows your love and commitment towards him.

Although I am flawed in so many ways, my burning desire is to see that the powerful Krishna consciousness movement so mercifully given to us by Srila Prabhupada now becomes accepted as the world religion in every town, village, and city all over the world.

For this purpose I have launched a website:

Thought For The Day: You Are What You Eat

ISKCON Austin, Texas, USA

If you kill a cow or pay someone to kill a cow by purchasing meat in the marketplace, your karmic reaction will be to become a cow and be eaten for every single cow who provided you with their meat during your lifetime. Even eating a carrot is killing and will give a karmic reaction. However if you will offer all of your food to Krishna before eating (no meat, fish, eggs, onion, or garlic allowed), by such eating you will not incur karma and you will become free from karma and make solid, steady advancement towards the perfection of spiritual realization, which will liberate you from the cycle of repeated birth and death. So now it's your choice what you will eat.

Answers According to Vedic Wisdom

Question: Proof of God's Existence?

Is there any unbiased proof foe existence of God that does not rely on what a few thousand year old books say?

Phil Smith

Answer: Here It Is!

Absolutely! The proof is that nothing comes from nothing, everything comes from something. This fact can be scientifically, empirically verified. Every something comes from something, which comes from something, which comes from something, etc, etc. So when you trace the line of causality back to the original something, you have found God. The atheist counter argument against the existence of God is that there is an infinite chain of causality. But this argument can easily be defeated. Consider a row of dominos that are standing up. Even if there is an infinite row of dominos, one of them has to fall over on its own in order to set off the chain reaction of falling dominos. In theology this is called the unmoved mover.

(And by the way, what do you have against thousands of years old scriptures, which come from a time when the entire earth planet was peaceful, prosperous, and happy, a time when everyone lived long, healthy lives and there was interplanetary travel that did not depend on fossil fuel?)

Austin, Texas USA

The whole world is full of materialistic propaganda mongers who consider gratifying the material senses to be the sole purpose of our existence. Kindly do not allow yourself to be misled by these fools and rascals. Following them will take you to the animal kingdom in your next birth. Take your guidance instead from those who are enlightened with transcendental knowledge. Such illuminated souls are your most genuine friends and well-wishers. Their compassionate guidance will liberate you back to original identity you once had in the spiritual world before you made the most foolish mistake of trying to enjoy separately from Krishna or God.

Thought For The Day: Realizing the Highest Truth

Austin, Texas USA

I was recently asked, "How do you plan to attain spiritual enlightenment this lifetime?" When answering I remembered a conversation that my spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada, had with a lady reporter on 5 March 1975 in New York. She asked him "Swami, is there a chance that all your followers can realize the highest truth?" Srila Prabhupada replied, "They have already done. Otherwise, I am Indian, I am poor man. Why they are after me? You Americans, you are rich men. So I have not bribed them. These young boys, they are educated, qualified. Why they are after me unless they have realized?"

So I told this person that by the grace of my spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, I have already attained spiritual enlightenment 48 years ago.

Question: Highest State of Enlightenment?

Which version of spirituality do you follow?

AJ Kposowa

Answer: The Authoritative Version

There are the speculative versions of spirituality, which lead nowhere, in which one simply imagines that he has become spiritually enlightened. Such versions are simply a useless waste of valuable time. And then there is the authentic version of spirituality, which is given by God Himself in all of the authoritative scriptures of the world. The original scriptures are the Vedas, some of which go back millions of years. These most authoritative scriptures describe the spiritual awakening process in precise details breaking it down into a step by step system, which can easily be followed by anyone who sincerely desires spiritual awakening. It is this most authoritative system that I have been practicing and teaching for the last half a century. I have 31,968 people presently enrolled in my e-course who are learning from me how to become spiritually awakened. It’s a free course. Everyone is invited to join it at: www.JoinCourse.com

Question: Highest State of Enlightenment?

What is the highest state of enlightenment?

Dylan Henry

Answer: Pure Devotion in Krishna Consciousness

It is confirmed in the Padma Purana as follows: "Pure devotional service in Krishna consciousness is the highest enlightenment, and when such enlightenment is there, it is just like a blazing forest fire, killing all the inauspicious snakes of desire." The example is being given in this connection that when there is a forest fire the extensive blazing automatically kills all the snakes in the forest. There are many, many snakes on the ground of the forest, and when a fire takes place, it burns the dried foliage, and the snakes are immediately attacked. Animals who have four legs can flee from the fire or can at least try to flee, but the snakes are immediately killed. Similarly, the blazing fire of Krishna consciousness is so strong that the snakes of ignorance are immediately killed.

Thought For The Day: Why Does Love Exist?

Austin, Texas USA

Love exists because Krishna is so kind. And we exist so that Krishna will have someone to love. Therefore the purpose of our existence is simply to love Krishna. There is no other purpose for our existence. Just like a fish cannot be happy out of the water, we cannot be happy unless we love Krishna or God. So what are we waiting for? Let us all now, everyone all over the world, fully give our love to Krishna by following the instructions He gives us in the Bhagavad-gita regarding how we should love Him. This will be the perfection of our existence and the perfection of our entire global society. So let's do it now and convince everyone else to also do this.

As a fellow person of faith, what is one thing about your religion that you secretly think is problematic?

Elle Thedyn

Answer: Nobody Wants It

There is no such as “my” religion. Religion is one, to reconnect with the source of our existence. Just like a lamp has no illumination unless it plugged in, we remain dull and practically lifeless unless and until we reconnect with the source of our existence. The biggest problem I have is no secret. My problem is that 99.99% of the present day human civilization is disconnected from its source and that nobody is interested in being reconnected with the very ground and source of their being. This is the root cause of the myriad of problems and catastrophes that are torturing our modern day so-called civilized society.

Thought For The Day: Conquer Your Mind, Conquer the World

Austin, Texas USA

Sometimes it is said that if one conquers his mind, he can conquer the world. What does this mean?

Conquering the mind is not child’s play. In the Bhagavad-gita Lord Sri Krishna states that it is more difficult to conquer the mind than it is to conquer the raging wind. But one who becomes highly spiritually elevated to the point of absolute spiritual perfection becomes such a powerful influence on this planet that the whole world will follow him. Such a person is known as a saktyavesa-avatara, a living entity who is empowered by God. Such a person can make the whole world Krishna conscious. In other words, he can turn the whole world into a spiritual paradise.

Answer: No Such Thing as "My" Religion

There is no such as “my” religion. Religion is one, to reconnect with the source of our existence. Just like a lamp has no illumination unless it plugged in, we remain dull and practically lifeless unless and until we reconnect with the source of our existence. The biggest problem I have is that 99.99% of the present day human civilization is disconnected from its source. This is the root cause of the myriad of problems and catastrophes that are torturing our modern day so-called civilized society. Therefore my life is fully dedicated to bringing about the complete, total respiritualization of the entire human society. Another aspect of my biggest problem is that nobody is interested in being reconnected with the very ground and source of their being.
