Thought For The Day: Make the Whole World Krishna Conscious Now

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

Srila Prabhupada writes in his purport to Srimad Bhagavatam 5th Canto, Chapter 18, Verse 9 as follows:

"...we should pray to Lord Nrsimhadeva to sit in our hearts. We should pray, bahir nrsimho hrdaye nrsimhah: 'Let Lord Nrsimhadeva sit in the core of my heart, killing all my bad propensities. Let my mind become clean so that I may peacefully worship the Lord and bring peace to the entire world."

This prayer is so wonderful. In it we are begging Krishna to make us pure devotees and to empower us that we can make the entire world Krishna conscious. Everyone is suffering greatly without Krishna consciousness so now let us do our duty to Krishnize ourselves and the entire world.

If you will regularly chant the Hare Krishna mantra in a mood of full surrender to the will of Krishna or God, you will be able to perform the greatest of all miracles. You will be able to break through the coverings that entrap us here in the material world and enter in the spiritual world where life is eternal, full of bliss, and full of knowledge.

Thought For The Day: Make Your Mind Your Best Friend

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

The mind is either our best friend or our worst enemy. If it is filled up with rubbish, it is our worst enemy. And if it is pure, it is our best friend. Therefore we should always be very careful to immediately weed out any thoughts that are based on lust, greed, anger, madness, illusion or envy. This will enable us to live wonderful, happy lives free from all kinds of unnecessary disturbances, allowing us to quickly and easily advance along that most wondrous pathway which takes us back to home, back to Godhead.

Answers According to Vedic Wisdom

Question: Why No Japa With Index Finger?

Guru Maharaja,

Hare Krishna! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I beg pardon for any offense.

Can you tell me why we do not hold japa beads with the index finger?

Many thanks for your patience.

Jane

Answer: It Should Protrude from the Bead Bag

From: ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

My Dear Jane,

Please accept my blessings.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Since Srila Prabhupada taught us that while chanting japa the index finger (as seen in the photo below) should protrude out of the bead bag, we do not use the index finger for chanting japa. All bead bags are made with a special hole from which to protrude the index finger.

I hope this meets you in the best of health and in an ecstatic mood.

Come out of your slumber and celebrate the awesome reality of your beautiful relationship that you have with Krishna or God as His eternal servant and with His devotees.

Answers According to Vedic Wisdom

Question: Who is Rama?

Dear Guru Maharaja,

Why do we chant Hare Rama along with Hare Krishna? Who is this Rama?

Thank you for your precious time in answering our questions.

Pooja Seh

Answer: Krishna, Balarama, Ramacandra, or Parasurama

From: ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

My Dear Pooja,

Please accept my blessings.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Rama means "the Supreme Enjoyer.” Since Krishna is the Supreme Enjoyer, "Hare Rama" is another way of calling out to Krishna begging for His mercy.

Rama can also refer to Balarama, Ramacandra or Parasurama. So when you chant "Rama" the specific Lord that you address will depend on which Lord you choose to call out to.

My mood is to call out to Krishna when I chant "Hare Rama."

I hope this meets you in the best of health and in an ecstatic mood.

Your ever well-wisher,

Thought For The Day: Why Does Love Exist?

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

The simple and profound answer to this question is that love exists because Krishna is so kind. Why is He so kind? He is kind because He relishes unlimited happiness by having sweet loving relationships with each and every one of His devotees. Who are His devotees? That's everyone. Some of us realize that we are His devotees, and some of us have forgotten that we are His devotees. Because of Krishna's love for those of us who have forgotten that we are His devotees, He has come to this material world and spoken the Bhagavad-gita to bring us back to our original loving relationships with Him. If we don't take advantage of His most merciful teachings we are simply fools and rascals.

Answers According to Vedic Wisdom

Question: Relationship Between Krishna and Shiva?

Dear Guru Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

What is the relationship between Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva? Who is God and who is the devotee?

Thanks for giving this clarification.

Kind regards,
Amit K.R. Gupta
Dwarka, New Delhi

Answer: Like the Difference Between Milk and Yogurt

From: ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

My Dear Amit,

Please accept my blessings.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Lord Sri Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and Lord Shiva is the greatest of His devotees. Lord Shiva is the topmost Vaisnava.

In this connection Lord Brahma states as follows:

ksiram yatha dadhi vikara-visesa-yogat
sañjayate na hi tatah prthag asti hetoh
yah sambhutam api tatha samupaiti karyad
govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

"Just as milk is transformed into curd by the action of acids, but yet the effect curd is neither same as, nor different from, its cause, viz., milk, so I adore the primeval Lord Govinda of whom the state of Sambhu, Lord Shiva, is a transformation for the performance of the work of destruction."

I hope this meets you in the best of health and in an ecstatic mood.

Thought For The Day: Srila Prabhupada's Amazing Arrival Prayer

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

On September 18, 1965, as the Indian steamship Jaladuta nears Boston's Commonwealth Pier, Srila Prabhupada prays to Lord Krsna in a moving Bengali poem (rendered below in English prose): "I am simply praying for Your mercy so that I will be able to convince them about Your message."

My dear Lord Krishna, You are so kind upon this useless soul, but I do not know why You have brought me here. Now You can do whatever You like with me. But I guess You have some business here, otherwise why would You bring me to this terrible place? Most of the population here is covered by the material modes of ignorance and passion. Absorbed in material life, they think themselves very happy and satisfied, and therefore they have no taste for the transcendental message of Vasudeva. I do not know how they will be able to understand it.

But I know Your causeless mercy can make everything possible, because You are the most expert mystic. How will they understand the mellows of devotional service?

O Lord, I am simply praying for Your mercy so that I will be able to convince them about Your message.

All living entities have come under the control of the illusory energy by Your will, and therefore, if You like, by Your will they can also be released from the clutches of illusion.

I wish that You may deliver them. Therefore if You so desire their deliverance, then only will they be able to understand Your message.

The words of the Srimad-Bhagavatam are Your incarnation, and if a sober person repeatedly receives them with submissive aural reception, then he will be able to understand Your message.

It is said in the Srimad Bhagavatam (1.2.17-21): "Sri Krishna, the Personality of Godhead, who is the Paramatma [Supersoul] in everyone's heart and the benefactor of the truthful devotee, cleanses desire for material enjoyment from the heart of the devotee who has developed the urge to hear His messages, which are in themselves virtuous when properly heard and chanted. By regular attendance in classes on the Bhagavatam and by rendering of service to the pure devotee, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving service unto the Personality of Godhead, who is praised with transcendental songs, is established as an irrevocable fact. As soon as irrevocable loving service is established in the heart, the effects of nature's modes of passion and ignorance, such as lust, desire, and hankering, disappear from the heart. Then the devotee is established in goodness, and he becomes completely happy. Thus established in the mode of unalloyed goodness, the man whose mind has been enlivened by contact with devotional service to the Lord gains positive scientific knowledge of the Personality of Godhead in the stage of liberation from all material association. Thus the knot in the heart is pierced, and all misgivings are cut to pieces. The chain of fruitive actions is terminated when one sees the self as master."

He will become liberated from the influence of the modes of ignorance and passion and thus all inauspicious things accumulated in the core of the heart will disappear.

How will I make them understand this message of Krsna consciousness? I am very unfortunate, unqualified, and the most fallen. Therefore I am seeking Your benediction so that I can convince them, for I am powerless to do so on my own.

Somehow or other, O Lord, You have brought me here to speak about You. Now, my Lord, it is up to You to make me a success or failure as You like.

O spiritual master of all the worlds! I can simply repeat Your message, so if You like You can make my power of speaking suitable for their understanding.

Only by Your causeless mercy will my words become pure. I am sure that when this transcendental message penetrates their hearts they will certainly feel engladdened and thus become liberated from all unhappy conditions of life.

O Lord, I am just like a puppet in Your hands. So if You have brought me here to dance, then make me dance, make me dance. O Lord, make me dance as You like.

I have no devotion, nor do I have any knowledge, but I have strong faith in the holy name of Krishna. I have been designated as Bhaktivedanta, and now, if You like, You can fulfill the real purport of Bhaktivedanta.

Signed -- the most unfortunate, insignificant beggar
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami,
on board the ship Jaladuta,
Commonwealth Pier,
Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
dated 18th of September, 1965

------------------------------------------------------------

It is greatly amazing and inspiring to see the sincerity and humility of Srila Prabhupada. We should adopt a similar mood in our own hearts for successfully making the whole world Krishna conscious as per his order to us, his followers.

Answers According to Vedic Wisdom

Question: Why Is Shiva Considered to Be a Demigod?

If God is one then why in Hindu society somebody says Shiva is the only God who can give us final liberation of our soul and as per Krishna Consciousness Lord Krisna is the God who give us final liberation? Why there is so much differences in set of beliefs? If all gods, as according to Hinduism (i.e Brahma,Vishnu and Mahadev (Shiva) are equal, then why in the Bhagavad-gita is Shiva is considered to be demigod?

Sushant Langthasa

Answer: Because He Is Subordinate to Krishna

From: ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

My Dear Sushant,

Please accept my blessings.

In Hindu society people are totally confused about who is God because they are being grossly misguided by so many bogus gurus. Some of these rascals have even gone so far to say everyone is God, even the beggar in the street. To understand things as they are we must not listen to all these cheaters. We must simply hear submissively from the Supreme Authority, Lord Sri Krishna, who is the source of existence including all of the gods or goddesses, because it is only when we hear from Lord Sri Krishna that we can get the proper understanding of reality.

Your ever well-wisher,

Thought For The Day: Who is God?

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

According to the great Vedic authority, the great sage Parasara Muni, God is that person who possesses unlimited power, beauty, renunciation, knowledge, wealth, and fame. In this connection Srila Prabhupada states:

"We have seen many rich persons, many powerful persons, many famous persons, many beautiful persons, many learned and scholarly persons, and persons in the renounced order of life unattached to material possessions. But we have never seen any one person who is unlimitedly and simultaneously wealthy, powerful, famous, beautiful, wise and unattached, like Krishna, in the history of humanity. Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is a historical person who appeared on this earth 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled. From the very moment of His appearance to the moment of His disappearance, every one of His activities is unparalleled in the history of the world, and therefore anyone who knows what we mean by Godhead will accept Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. No one is equal to the Godhead, and no one is greater than Him. That is the import of the familiar saying 'God is great.'"

So our acceptance of Krishna as God is not sentimental. It is scientific.

Thought For The Day: Celebrate Your Eternal Identity

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

Why be morose when you can instead be relishing unlimited bliss within your heart at every moment? Even in the beginning stages of Krishna consciousness when your bliss is only partial because your spiritual life has not yet matured, it is still far, far more thrilling and enlivening than any of the so-called happinesses of this material world, even sex. So if you have not already done, do yourself the ultimate favor of surrendering right now to Krishna, fully accepting Him as your eternal lord and master. Try it. You will be unlimitedly blessed with bliss!!

Thought For The Day: Do Not Cheat Yourself

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

Do not cheat yourself by focusing your life on material sense gratification, which is the mentality of an animal. Human consciousness means Krishna consciousness or God consciousness. In other words to truly be a human you must focus your life on self realization, not sense gratification. This is the only way that you can truly be happy. The so-called happiness of material sense gratification is illusory happiness. It is not genuine happiness. It does NOT satisfy the self within. It only titillates the senses, which are a covering of the self.

Thought For The Day:Problems, Problems, Problems

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

At the present moment our modern day world is drowning in ocean of problems on all levels: individual, national, global, environmental, etc. Unfortunately none of our modern day leaders have even the slightest clue of how to actually solve this myriad of problems. Therefore every day our world is becoming more and more of a hell. This is why the Krishna consciousness movement is of the utmost importance for every man, woman, and child on this planet. We, the Hare Krishna people, do in fact have the solution for all problems. But in this regard the biggest of all problems is that no one is willing to hear and learn from us. This must now be changed. We must immediately find the ways and means to attract the entire world or at least the world's leaders to hear our message and follow our instructions. If they do so, this will mark the beginning of the most glorious era in all of human history.

Friends in this material world sometimes neglect us because they have their own separate self-interest. But Krishna is our best friend because He always acts as our well-wisher in all times, places, and circumstances. He never neglects us. And He has been doing this for all of eternity. So it is time now for us to acknowledge and appreciate our best friend. We must now stop neglecting Him and learn how to perfectly reciprocate with His loving friendship. This will be the perfection of our existence.

Thought For The Day: Be Kind to Yourself

ISKCON Austin, Texas USA

Don't torture yourself by continuing to focus your life on serving your material body. Your material body is simply a costume that you are temporarily wearing. It is not you. Of course, you should not neglect your costume. You should take proper care of it. You should keep it in good health. But you must never think that it is you. Your main focus should on serving the needs of the actual self, the eternal spiritual self who is seated within the temporary material body. And what is that need? The need of the actual self seated within is to have a pure loving relationship with that person who is the Supreme Self, the source of all existence. That Supreme Person has unlimited names, pastimes, and qualities. His name "Krishna" is especially potent because this name includes all of the other millions and billions and trillions of His other names within it.
