Question: After coming to Mathura, Lord Shri Krsna could not go back to vrindavana to perform Rasalila with His dear Gopis and Radha Rani. So from that time, Ratha Yatra was performed hoping that Lord will come back to Vrindavan. My doubt is what Krsna wants to teach us by this? Can you please clarify my doubt Gurudeva?

Difficulty in Judging Between Nitya and Sadhana Siddha

Question:

How do we really make a distinction between nitya siddha and sadhana siddha jivas?

Despite them being two different by definition obviously, their pastimes on the earth, their qualities and potency, is there any difference, are those things the same?

Could you say, those who are Sadhana Siddha do not exercise/expose as much spiritual potency as Nitya Siddha jivas, or that sadhana siddhas do not have as much extent of spiritual influence?

Generally, Prabhupada has said the previous acharyas (Bhaktisiddhanta, Bhaktivinode) are Nitya Siddha, therefore, is it correct to deduce only those who are acharyas are nitya, and everyone else is sadhana siddha?

Sometimes, with an acharya we know is nitya siddha, Bhaktvinode Thakur for example, it may appear he was formerly materialistic then by Sadhana became Siddha, Prabhupada has stated otherwise so we accept that as the truth, therefore it is difficult to distinguish between the two, as even if they are actually sadhana siddha they have pastimes appearing as if they were worldly.

Why The Lord Need to Put Tilak

January 9, 2014 |

Question: Why is it necessary for The Lord to put on tilak? Tilak is a symbol of The Lord's lotus feet and Tulasi, so why is Krsna also wearing tilak like us. Is there any sasta praman of Krsna's tilak in the scriptures. If he is wearing tilak just as a decoration then why is he wearing it in the same way as we wear it.

On Worshipping Virgin Mary

Question:

I saw an article on Dandavats.com titled "Parusurama and Virgin mary" [ http://www.dandavats.com/?p=26584 ]

This article about Virgin Mary appears to be on more of a sentimental platform conveying the message that you can pray to even Virgin Mary or any demigod to come to Krishna Conciousness. They also have included "portion" of "portion" of one of Srila Prabhupada's correspondence to Sivananda on Virgin Mary to substantiate their "belief".

Guru Maharaja, my question is:

1. Is such method of prayer to attain Krishna conciousness valid from the sastric viewpoint?

2. Can we equate such prayers of us to the prayers of Gopis to demigoddess to attain Lord Krishna?

3. In my experience, as this article seems to also indicate, that even after attaining Krishna conciousness, devotees who have attained Krishna Conciousness through such method seems to have attachment to the demigods or virgin mary in the form of affection however mild it might be. Is this still considered okay or pure devotional service to Lord Krishna?
