Question:

What is role of jivatma in this universe as I am a jivatma could you please guide me on characteristics of jivatma and how to live in this universe. Also please let me know the disadvantages of jivatma.

Answer:

Well, there’s no disadvantage of being a jīvātmā. Even if there is, there’s no way not to be a jīvātmā. Because acchedyo ‘yam akledyo ‘yam aśoṣya, jīva… You can’t destroy the jīva. The role of the jīvātmā in this universe is to… We’re in this universe to forget Kṛṣṇa. But it’s not a good thing to do. So, the best thing is to become Kṛṣṇa conscious and get out of this universe. The characteristics of the jīva: jīvera svarūpa haya kṛṣṇera nitya-dāsa. The characteristic of the jīva is that he is an eternal servant of Kṛṣṇa. How to live in this universe? Gṛhe thāko, vane thāko, sadā ‘hari’ bole’ ḍāko. Whatever situation you’re in, chant the holy name of Kṛṣṇa. For more guidance, read Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books. Read all of his books. And for practical guidance on how to be Kṛṣṇa conscious, see that Beginner’s Guide to Kṛṣṇa Consciousness.

Question:

I am currently listening to your lecture "Some Concerns About ISKCON." I also heard a lecture recently from my spritual master HH Tamal Krishna Goswami. He said, "originally, Srila Prabhupada wanted ISKCON to consist solely of brahmacaris and sannyasis, but then Jadurani came, what was Srila Prabhupada to do? He couldn't reject her."

It seems that since we do not discriminate who joins ISKCON in terms of their varna or ashram, ISKCON will continue to face these sorts of issues (i.e. Ksatriya Initiative).

My question: Although I understand that we are ultimately only concerned with becoming Vaishnavas, but do you forsee that ISKCON as a society will gradually evolve into strictly a brahminical body as Srila Prabhupada wanted or will the brahminical class be forced to create a seperate body to offer guidance to society? Thank you for maintaining the standard.
