Do We Need to Spend Time on Introspection?

May 1, 2016 |

Question: When it comes to spiritual life, as a sadhaka, I am busy on constant survival mode, trying to chant, read, hear etc. Between this, do I need to spend time to self-introspect? For example, I was listing to a lecture of Jswami. In his lecture he was talking about how lust or desire is the cause of material bondage. Am I supposed to self-introspect myself and change this desire aspect or is this hovering over the mental plane?

Collecting Funds and Living Luxuriously

February 23, 2012 |

Question: We see in our society (ISKCON) that sometimes devotees are forced to collect large sums of fund for temple in various festivals we celebrate in temple and for the normal functioning of the temple. The collected fund of the public is used by many devotees in temple to live luxurious lifestyle. Is that correct? When we say that devotees should remain detached from luxary, name, fame, and designation, where this kind of devotees will go?

Deviation of Jainism

November 15, 2011 |

Question: We know from Srimad Bhagavatam that Rsabhadeva is an incarnation of Lord Visnu. My question is then why that Jains follow the teachings of Lord Rsabhadeva as separate religion and set of practices distinct from Vaisanava principles. How did teachings of Lord get misinterpreted to such an extent that a new religion was born?

Partnership Among Vaisnava Sampradayas

Question: You have made frequent contacts with acaryas of various Vaisnava sampradayas. I feel very inspired by your preaching in this area. Gaura Keshava Prabhu (a disciple of Prabhupada, who has a home at Sri Rangam) mentioned to me: "Before coming to the West, he (Srila Prabhupada) wrote to Visvambhara Goswami(his friend, Radha Ramana Temple Goswami and former Vrndavan mayor)… Expand>

Question:

You have made frequent contacts with acaryas of various Vaisnava sampradayas. I feel very inspired by your preaching in this area. Gaura Keshava Prabhu (a disciple of Prabhupada, who has a home at Sri Rangam) mentioned to me: "Before coming to the West, he (Srila Prabhupada) wrote to Visvambhara Goswami(his friend, Radha Ramana Temple Goswami and former Vrndavan mayor) that he wanted to start an organization wherein Vaisnavas from all sampradayas could cooperate to push on Krsna consciousness.Of course ultimately ISKCON was born out of this desire. We do not know exactly how inclusive or exclusive of other types of Vaisnavas and their philosophies and traditions ISKCON will eventual become."

I wanted to know if you envisage any form of strategic partnership among all the Vaisnava sampradayas, since at present, we just have issue-specific or individual-level contacts.
