Books by Fallen Sannyasis

Question: What is the status of books written by sannyasis who have either fallen since writing them, or else left ISKCON? I'm thinking in particular of Harikesa Swami's "Varnasrama Manifesto for Social Sanity," or the books of Bhaktipada Maharaj. Is it still acceptable to take guidance from them?

Glorification Turns to Blasphemy …

January 1, 2011 |

Question: Could you please speak something regarding the verse and purport of CC Madhya-lila 10.182, in which Srila Prabhupada writes that "The Lord herein confirms that if one is overestimated, glorification is just another form of blasphemy." It seems like a very deep statement, and significant, but it is difficult to understand properly.

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.

Gita Press Editions of Bhagavad-gita

Question:

1) I once saw a visiting devotee who was reading Gita Press edition of Bhagavad-gita. When I asked why he was reading that not Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita, he said that because his guru said it was good for word to word translations. And then again I saw this with an initiated Indian lady devotee. She was from Delhi but based in Dar es salaam. When I queried her about this, she said the same thing, that the word to word meanings are good (or better? I can't remember exactly what she said).

This didn't seem right, but I wanted to ask your holiness. Are we meant to be referring to Gita Press's Bhagavad-gita at all for any reason?

2) I was in an ISKCON temple here in Africa and saw a compact, one inch size Bhagavad-gita which was from Gita Press and which has slokas in devanagari only and no commentary. I thought that this would be good for carrying around and for chanting Bhagavad-gita slokas as that would be the same anyway in all versions of Bhagavad-gita. Is it OK to just chant the slokas only from this compact Gita Press's Gita or other any other non-ISKCON Bhagavad-gita?
