When a Guru Deviates

September 27, 2011 |

Question: If a disciple is seeing that the guru is deviating from the original path and not following the words of Srila Prabhupada (for e.g. by promoting philanthropic activities), then what is the duty of the disciple and who should correct the guru? And, if at all, a disciple thinks that the guru is deviating, is it an offence towards his guru?

Is Srila Prabhupada Tri-kala jna?

Question:

Is Srila Prabhupada tri-kala jna?

Srila Prabhupada has been described as a saktyavesa-avatara (by Srila Sridhara Maharaja). It has also been described, I believe by Srila Prabhupada himself, that he was a very pious doctor in his previous life. This devotee was thinking that all saktyavesa-avataras are descending from the spiritual world, from their previous life and that they would not have had a previous birth here. It may be argued that some of Caitanya Mahaprabhu's closest assocaiates, like Murari Gupta were Ayurvedic doctors, so this type of occupation or birth does not minimize their divinity in any way. Any comments on this?

If You Are Struggling in Practice of Brahmacarya

February 27, 2011 |

Question: I am practicing brahmacarya, but I sometimes find it a struggle. I find the night time most difficult, I can’t control the dreams, and I end up masturbating in the dream. I read that after 12 years of perfect brahmacarya, one develops super memory, clairvoyance etc., and atma-tattva, but does this also mean no wet dream for the entire 12 years = 365*12 more than 5000 dreams that have to be controlled!

pancaratra-vidhim vina

aikantiki harer bhaktir

utpatayaiva kalpate

Is varnasrama considered part of “sruti-smrti-puranadi-pancaratra-vidhim”? Speaking of myself, I really don’t fall in any asrama and of course varna is the lowest. Is any devotional service or other activities performed by me an unnecessary disturbance in society?
