Why Does ISKCON Do Not Accept Evolution Theory?

August 3, 2011 |

Question: I have a question and I would be grateful should you be able to answer it for me. Why does ISKCON not accept Evolution which has withstood criticism for over 150 years? I have read some of the works of Cremo & Thompson yet I cannot but be surprised at how evolution is not accepted within ISKCON?

Question:

I have a doubt in my mind, and you could most likely solve it.

Sannyasa is the highest ashram and generally the sannyasis are respected as being; as good as God by other sections. I hear stories about Prabhupada offering sannyasa to many of his devotees, and many of them could not maintain it.

During the early stages of the Krishna Conscious movement, was Prabhupada very careful in choosing candidates for Sannyasa? I hear stories that sometimes many of the devotees were given Sannyasa on a single day and were asked to go out and preach (please correct me if I am wrong).

Is the spiritual master supposed to understand the possible frailties of his disciples very carefully and give instructions only according to the disciple’s capacity? I hear this argument that the strength to carry on the instruction is imparted with the instruction itself.

Is it possible that the spiritual master may give an instruction, but if he is not very helpful to the disciple then the disciple has to take a simpler instruction for himself after the failure?

How does giving instructions work in the current context? We have many madhyama bhaktas acting as leaders, so are we supposed to check with others when there are strict instructions (other than chanting and regulative principles) and strong ideas presented that are directly not in Prabhupada's books - like preaching, program building etc.?

Question:

Presently I am working in a company and my qualification is Diploma. Now whenever I chant my rounds, in the early morning, my mind speaks to me to study further (material studying-degree) rather than chanting, so that in future it will help my career. Now i am of age 33 and married & I have twin children (of age 6yrs, both boys-Pramod & Pradyumna). Because of this I cannot concentrate on chanting. Please advise which is best for me – either to chant & work for personal care (or) to focus on further material studies and work. Please note my working schedule is hectic and I cannot do all the three things (i.e. to chant 16 rounds, work & study) and working is compulsory as I don’t have any other source of income.
