Material Difficulties, Sufferings and Failures for Devotees

August 29, 2011 |

Question: 1) Some devotees say that Reading Srimad Bhagavatam and Chanting Hare Krishna will award only spiritual benefits and will not remove any material difficulties that a devotee undergoes.

Question:

1) Some devotees say that Reading Srimad Bhagavatam and Chanting Hare Krishna will award only spiritual benefits and will not remove any material difficulties that a devotee undergoes. Whereas some devotees say when Srimad Bhagavatam and Chanting Hare Krishna take you out of material world by giving Krishna Prema- why temporary material difficulties cannot be removed (if Krishna wishes). Please advise.

2) If someone utters the holy name for making fun of others his sins get washed away. If someone goes around Tulsi even sin like killing a brahmana can be removed. If someone pulls rath when Lord Jagannath is on the cart-all the sins are washed sway.If some one takes Lords remnants all the sins are washed away. Then why still devotees are suffering?

3) Many times we sincerely pray to guru, deities to remove anarthas, to award steadiness in Krishna consciousness, to protect us from all kinds of fall downs ( which happens again and again due to past conditioning) etc. Even we cry our heart out-but still results are not coming! How do we understand this?

Because of repeated failures we tend to think "may be it is not possible in this life" and frustration overcomes us.

Are We Favored Than People of Other Yugas?

June 26, 2011 |

Question: It is said in the Caitanya Caritamrita that Lord Caitanya doesnt come as an Avatara in every Kali-Yuga, but comes extremely rarely, so how is harinama sankirtana (Kali Yuga Dharma) implemented when he isn't personally descending here in the form of Caitanya Mahaprabhu? Does this mean we are favored to other people in other chatur yuga cycles, or do they get some extra mercy in another way?

Why Channa Avatar in Kali-yuga

July 10, 2011 |

Question: Prahlada Maharaja mentions in his prayers to Lord Narsimha Deva that the Supreme Lord is called triyugi becuase He appears in three yugas except kaliyuga and in Kaliyuga He appears as channa avatar. What is the reason that the Supreme Lord does not reveal His identity as the Supreme Personality of Godhead in Kali-yuga. Can someone shed some light on this with proper pramana?

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?
