Is Everything Predecided?

November 28, 2011 |

Question: Krishna says in Bhagavad-gita that He knows past, present, and future. If everything is predecided then why we should try to get Krishna. In other words, if everything is already predecided then what is the point of trying to become Krishna conscious. When my time will come, then I will automatically become Krishna conscious.… Expand>

Question:

Krishna says in Bhagavad-gita that He knows past, present, and future. If everything is predecided then why we should try to get Krishna. In other words, if everything is already predecided then what is the point of trying to become Krishna conscious. When my time will come, then I will automatically become Krishna conscious. Before that, even if I would try still I can't become Krishna conscious because everything is already predecided, like Ramayana is written before Lord Rama descended. Please clarify my doubt.

Questions About Rejecting a Guru

Question: My question is as follows. How can we distinguish between these (what appear to my understanding) two different outlooks regarding the matter of rejecting a guru.

Question:

My question is as follows. How can we distinguish between these (what appear to my understanding) two different outlooks regarding the matter of rejecting a guru.

One point of view is represented by the verse from Mahabharata (guror apy avaliptasya..) and another point of view could be find in CC Antya 3.11 in Srila Prabhupada´s purport where he says:

"Damodara Pandita was a great devotee of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Sometimes, however, a person in such a position becomes impudent, being influenced by the external energy and material considerations. Thus a devotee mistakenly dares to criticize the activities of the spiritual master or the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Despite the logic that "Ceaser´s wife must be above suspicion," a devotee should not be disturbed by the activities of his spiritual master and should not try to criticize him. A devotee should be fixed in the conclusion that the spiritual master cannot be subject to criticism and should never be considered equal to a common man. Even if there appears to be some discrepancy according to an imperfect devotee´s estimation, the devotee should be fixed in the conviction that even if his spiritual master goes to a liquor shop, he is not a drunkard, rather, he must have some purpose in going there. It is said in a Bengali poem:

yadyapi nityananda sura-badi yaya
tathapio haya nityananda-raya


"Even if I see that Lord Nityananda has entered a liquor shop, I shall not be diverted from my conclusion that Nityananda Raya is the Supreme Personality of Godhead."
