Start With Basics

May 6, 2011 |

Question: After coming to Mathura, Lord Shri Krsna could not go back to vrindavana to perform Rasalila with His dear Gopis and Radha Rani. So from that time, Ratha Yatra was performed hoping that Lord will come back to Vrindavan. My doubt is what Krsna wants to teach us by this? Can you please clarify my doubt Gurudeva?

On Worshipping Virgin Mary

May 1, 2016 |

Question: I saw an article on Dandavats.com titled "Parusurama and Virgin mary" [ http://www.dandavats.com/?p=26584 ] This article about Virgin Mary appears to be on more of a sentimental platform conveying the message that you can pray to even Virgin Mary or any demigod to come to Krishna Conciousness. They also have included "portion" of "portion" of one of Srila Prabhupada's correspondence to Sivananda on Virgin Mary to substantiate their "belief".… Expand>

Question:

I saw an article on Dandavats.com titled "Parusurama and Virgin mary" [ http://www.dandavats.com/?p=26584 ]

This article about Virgin Mary appears to be on more of a sentimental platform conveying the message that you can pray to even Virgin Mary or any demigod to come to Krishna Conciousness. They also have included "portion" of "portion" of one of Srila Prabhupada's correspondence to Sivananda on Virgin Mary to substantiate their "belief".

Guru Maharaja, my question is:

1. Is such method of prayer to attain Krishna conciousness valid from the sastric viewpoint?

2. Can we equate such prayers of us to the prayers of Gopis to demigoddess to attain Lord Krishna?

3. In my experience, as this article seems to also indicate, that even after attaining Krishna conciousness, devotees who have attained Krishna Conciousness through such method seems to have attachment to the demigods or virgin mary in the form of affection however mild it might be. Is this still considered okay or pure devotional service to Lord Krishna?

Question:

Once when Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati Thakur coming out from temple with few grihast disciples and he saw none of them gave anything to beggars' sitting out side. So he instructed them to give something. And he told that, if you will not sacrifice in this way than you will loose your mentality of sacrifice. And then you will not sacrifice for Vaishanava or deity. BSST himself also distributing to raw material on auspicious day.

What shall we do? Shall we give charity to beggar?

And if we do so, then is there any karmic reaction in case beggars' misuse it?
