ASK BVKS | January 7, 2014 |

English; Salem, Tamil Nadu, India

Question:

Srila Prabhupada often mentions in his lectures that his mission would be complete if he could make one pure devotee. Is this statement used out of humility by Srila Prabhupada? What is the definition of a pure devotee? Does it mean that there is no pure devotee in ISKCON? Please can you kindly throw some more insights on this topic.

Question:

Sometimes Srila Prabhupada says that Krishna will arrange a big war and all the contemporary demons will be killed. At other times we hear that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu kills the demons by killing their demoniac heart through Nama sankirtan. How do we understand this seemingly different procedures? Can we expect a third world war because everything has become so sinful or will the sankirtan movement avert such a catastrophe by turning all the demons into devotees.

This question has been answered by His Grace Gokula Candra Prabhu, a senior disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj upon Maharaj's request.

No Taste for Chanting

Question:

I have been practicing for several years but when recently asked by another young devotee regarding when one gets the taste for chanting I had to frankly admit that I hadn't got it yet. I can understand that it is due to offences and inattentive chanting. If it is not too impertinent to ask, may I request you to share your personal experience about chanting. I have heard from your lectures that you were chanting 16 rounds from the day you joined. Of course it depends on the devotee's level of sincerity and one cannot put a timeline on when one gets a taste from chanting and consequently other things such as waking up early, but hearing from you will definitely inspire those of us who are struggling.
