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?

Third World War or Sankirtana

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.

Promoting Gurukula in America

July 28, 2011 |

Question: I have been teaching in ISKCON schools in the USA for the past 30 yrs. Some of these schools (in the past) had boys' ashrams, which I believe is a good thing provided there are qualified teachers. Most (if not all) of the present ISKCON schools in America are day schools. Do you think ashrams or gurukulas will ever be revived here in America in the near future? What can those of us who still believe in that system do to promote the idea?

What is the Urgency of This Human Birth?

Question:

While preaching I have come across several persons who doubt the cycle of birth and death and when the point comes up about having to go through millions of births in the animal realm, (or any realm for that matter) before coming back to the human platform, I often hear; "Well I was born in this human body and don’t remember my other births, so if this same chance will happen again someday what is the urgency of this human birth?

So basically they are saying they do not remember the suffering of other lives, yet all of a sudden they were born in this human form where things are pretty nice, and they are wondering, what need is there to change. What does it matter if they take so many animal births as long as they don’t remember, since one day they will just be back in a human form again?

So I am wondering how to defeat this argument.
