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?

Question:

I am currently listening to your lecture "Some Concerns About ISKCON." I also heard a lecture recently from my spritual master HH Tamal Krishna Goswami. He said, "originally, Srila Prabhupada wanted ISKCON to consist solely of brahmacaris and sannyasis, but then Jadurani came, what was Srila Prabhupada to do? He couldn't reject her."

It seems that since we do not discriminate who joins ISKCON in terms of their varna or ashram, ISKCON will continue to face these sorts of issues (i.e. Ksatriya Initiative).

My question: Although I understand that we are ultimately only concerned with becoming Vaishnavas, but do you forsee that ISKCON as a society will gradually evolve into strictly a brahminical body as Srila Prabhupada wanted or will the brahminical class be forced to create a seperate body to offer guidance to society? Thank you for maintaining the standard.

Why Bhakti Is Independent of Other Forms of Yoga

August 2, 2011 |

Question: Did Prabhupada name his version of the Gita, As it is to give a sub meaning to tat tvam asi-that thou art, and aham brahmasmi. Why is it that bhakti can be attained without necessarily taking part in other forms of yoga? Narada Muni explains in the bhakti sutras that bhakti is the fruit of all yoga paths. My real question is Where is the tree or vine in relation to this metaphor?

Question 2: I have a query from one of my students: “If Mahabharat really happened, why is Srila Vyasa given credit for writing it.” Please answer with references if possible as I do not wish to give him a speculative answer.
