-Srila Jiva Goswami disappearance

Srila Prabhupada presents nectar from Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhupada Mo

So far as my taking botheration in coming to your country, I must take  this so-called botheration for Krishna. But what botheration I have  taken? You know that the Goswamis were ministers in the government’s  service and they left their posts for going to Vrindaban and living  there just like paupers. Read the rest of this entry →

“Rascals are concerned with grammar. Actual workers are concerned with thoughts.”

Prabhupada: “Rascals are concerned with grammar. Actual workers are concerned with thoughts.” by Ajit Krishna Dasa 

The thoughts and the effects of such revolutionary literature are required. Not the grammatical. The so-called rascals, they are concerned with the grammatical. But those who are actually worker, they are concerned with the thoughts…

Room Conversation, including discussion on SB 1.5.11  Jaipur, January 19, 1972

Prabhupada: These people or this revolution is meant for killing the sinful resultant actions of the people. This revolution. Janata agha, agha means resultant action of sinful life. Janata agha viplavah. Viplavah means revolution, this very word is used. Tad-vag-visargo janatagha-viplavo yasmin prati-slokam abaddhavaty api[ SB 1.5.11]. Such revolutionary literature, even they are not properly composed. Yasmin prati-slokam abaddham. Not according to the grammatical rules and other rhetorical rules, but the, I mean to say, thoughts and the effects of such revolutionary literature is required. Read the rest of this entry →

The Glories of Sri Govardhana Sila-taken from Sri Caitanya Caritamrta‏

January 3, 2014 in Damaghosa Dasa by KHD

**newrule

Antya 6.292 The stone from Govardhana was always moist with  tears from His eyes. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu would say, “This stone is  directly the body of Lord Krsna.”
Antya 6.293     For three years He kept the stone and  garland. Then, greatly satisfied by the behavior of Raghunatha dasa, the Lord  delivered both of them to him.
Antya 6.294    Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu instructed Raghunatha  dasa, “This stone is the transcendental form of Lord Krsna. Worship  the stone with great eagerness.”
                                PURPORT
   Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura writes in his  Anubhasya that in the opinion of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the  govardhana-sila, the stone from Govardhana Hill, was directly the form of  Krsna, the son of Maharaja Nanda. Read the rest of this entry →

REFUTATION OF VEDAVYAS’S “REBUTTAL OF THE RITVIK PHILOSOPHY”

January 3, 2014 in Hari Nama Dasa, Narasimha Dasa by KHD

**newrule

REFUTATION OF VEDAVYAS’S “REBUTTAL OF THE RITVIK PHILOSOPHY”

The author misunderstands the subject of his rebuttal of “Prabhupada Siddhanta” as so-called ritvik philosophy, when actually Srila Prabhupada himself in his July 9, 1977 letter to all GBC and temple presidents in ISKCON worldwide is the basis for the so-called ritvik philosophy vis-à-vis initiating new diciples on his behalf. So the author’s own lack of understanding and/or ignorance of the ritvik subject matter disqualifies his entire rebuttal as mere strawman arguments missing the real point. However, the author’s thinking is so distorted from vaissnava philosophy that I will point out his own mistatements delusions of the collective.

Contrary to Vedavyas’s belief, the parampara is a line of uttama adhikaris exclusively that cannot be rubber stamped, voted in, or self appointed.. Anyone less than uttama adhikari is insufficient in knowledge and guisdance and thus not complete and subject to maya. Think on this as much as you can for it is an absolute truth regarding how Krishna tattva descends in this material world from the beginning of creation to the end. mahajana yena gatah sa pantha Read the rest of this entry →

750509rc.per                 Conversations                 380176/530501 Paramahamsa: Yes. The Christians always say that Christ was  eating fish and drinking wine, so what problem have we got? Drinking a  little alcohol, eating a little meat? Prabhupada: Then how did he say that  “Thou shall not kill”? Srutakirti: That was actually the Ten Commandments.  That was given by God. Ganesa: Given to Moses. Srutakirti: That was  given to Moses by God. The Ten Commandments. Prabhupada: That is not Christ  has said? Srutakirti: Well, Christ enforced it. Paramahamsa: It was  accepted by him as one of the rules. Srutakirti: Christ’s greatest  commandment was to love God above all things. So if one is to love God, one  must follow His instructions. Prabhupada: Who is following the  instructions? Srutakirti: We are. Prabhupada: But supposing Christ  distributed fish, but did he say that we shall maintain regular  slaughterhouse for killing animals? Srutakirti: He was against that. He  threw the men out of the temple, because they were selling lambs in the  temple to be offered at the altar. So he kicked them out, saying this temple  is not a place for Read the rest of this entry →

Foodoffered to bogus gurus does not produce Krsna Prasadam-proof from Prabhupada‏

January 3, 2014 in Damaghosa Dasa by KHD

**newrule

Hare Krsna to all
Pranams
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
Below we have a concise analysis (from Prabhupada’s  quotes) that food offered thru bogus iskcon gurus-is not Krsna  Prasadam. Sound alarming? Then please read further…..
Over the years, we have all seen a lot of damage to the once prestigious  worldwide Iskcon organization. Now, it is only a mere shadow of its past glory.  And here below is one key reason. The present leaders of iskcon have minimized  the actual instructions of Srila Prabhupada, and created their “own” version of  Bhakti Tattva.
Starting every day with the offering of bhoga to turn it into Krsna  Prasadam thru the un-authorized gurus of iskcon, everyone there is eating sinful  foodstuffs, and not Krsna prasadam. See the proof below.
Hare Krsna,
Damaghosa das

760613mw.det                 Conversations                 Prabhupada: Who is my disciple? First of all let him follow  strictly the disciplined rules. Devotee (2): As long as one is  following, then he is… Prabhupada: Then he is all right.
69-07-11.Jay               Letter:  Jayapataka             Master.  Out of the ten kinds of offenses, the number one offense is to disobey the  orders of the Spiritual Master. The instructions given to the disciple by  the Spiritual Master at the time of initiation should be strictly followed.  That will make one advance to the spiritual path. But if one deliberately  defies such instructions, then his advancement is hampered from the very  beginning. This defying means to disconnect the relationship with the  Spiritual Master. And anyone who defies and therefore  disconnects the relationship with the Spiritual Master can hardly  expect the assistance of the Spiritual Master life after life. I  hope this will clear up this question sufficiently for you.’

Guru-tyaga by the Prabhupada-anugas

Guru-tyaga by the Prabhupada-anugas.
 
Srila Prabhupada explains: Who is Bali maharaja?
Books : Srimad-Bhagavatam : Canto 4: “The Creation of the Fourth Order” : SB 4.24: Chanting the Song Sung by Lord Siva : SB 4.24.51 : PURPORT :
Lord Śiva is one of the twelve great authorities mentioned in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (6.3.20). These authorities are Svayambhū, Nārada, Śambhu, Kumāra, Kapila, Manu, Prahlāda, Janaka, Bhīma, Bali, Vaiyāsaki, or Śukadeva Gosvāmī, and Yamarāja.
Books : Srimad-Bhagavatam : Canto 1:”Creation” : SB 1.12: Birth of Emperor Pariksit : SB 1.12.25 : PURPORT :
Bali Mahārāja: One of the twelve authorities in the devotional service of the Lord. Bali Mahārāja is a great authority in devotional service because he sacrificed everything to please the Lord and relinquished the connection of his so-called spiritual master who obstructed him on the path of risking everything for the service of the Lord. The highest perfection of religious life is to attain to the stage of unqualified devotional service of the Lord without any cause or without being obstructed by any kind of worldly obligation. Bali Mahārāja was determined to give up everything for the satisfaction of the Lord, and he did not care for any obstruction whatsoever. He is the grandson of Prahlāda Mahārāja, another authority in the devotional service of the Lord. Bali Mahārāja and the history of his dealings with Viṣṇu Vāmanadeva are described in the Eighth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (Chapter 11-24).
