Question:

Maharaj, most of the ISKCON centers have custom to chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra for devotees who sponsor prasadam, or perform any important service, or if they are sick. Recently I heard from a lecture that this system which is been followed in even most of the important ISKCON centers is wrong and this is a namaparadha and offense since it's a misusage of Holy name! And also I heard in that lecture since the meaning of Hare Krishna Mahamantra is please engage me in your (Krsna's) service, How can we chant for somebody else?

Maharaj please clarify this doubt? Is anything wrong if we chant in public for some others for their service to encourage them ?

How to React to Christian Preaching Against Krishna?

Question: However, this particular preacher was speaking out against the worship of Krishna.

Question:

For about five months now I have been engaged more actively in book distribution. Every Thursday I go around knocking on doors at different apartment buildings with another devotee, and I also try to distribute books every day at Krishna Lunch on the university campus. One day when I was walking back by myself to the preaching center from the campus, I saw this man preaching in the plaza. It was obvious that he was from some kind of church, and he was speaking out against all other religions with the exception of his own. There were many students gathered around him asking questions. Usually, I ignore these kinds of preachers and just keep walking. However, this particular preacher was speaking out against the worship of Krishna. He was saying that Krishna cannot be God because he was killed in a hunting accident and left a material body. When I saw him preaching like this I felt very disturbed that all of the students around him were misled into thinking that Krishna was a human and could be killed. Since I have gained more confidence and desire to speak about Krishna due to book distribution, I wanted to say something to try and clear up this misconception, but I started to think that he would not understand what I had to say. So, I ended up just walking away. I would like to know, what is the best thing to do in these circumstances? Is it better to kindly say something or walk away? If it is not too much trouble for you, I would appreciate any advice you could give me.

Question:

During the Sri Sri Gurvastaka Meditation. Should we meditate on our Guru or on Srila Prabhupada?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami:

Gurv-aṣṭaka meditation. Should we meditate on our guru or on Śrīla Prabhupāda?

You can meditate on both, as suitable. Yeah, as suitable means that not everything may be applicable to your own guru. Śrīla Prabhupāda said that this Gurv-aṣṭaka, it doesn’t apply to all gurus. At least the part of verses five and six specifically refer to those who in their form as a gopī assisting the… Well, especially number six applies to a gopī who is engaged in the direct service of Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa. Therefore I say you can meditate as is suitable. Not everything may be applicable.
