Seminars on Ramacharita Manasa

October 31, 2013 |

Question: How can we understand that Srila Prabhupada said that Ramacharita Manasa should not be printed in ISKCON and yet we find senior devotees giving seminars on the same? NB: In this recording, Maharaj is referring to a lecture on Ramacharita Manasa that he had given previously. You can hear to that lecture here: About Ramacaritamanasa.

Krishna Conscious Paintings and Dolls

October 24, 2011 |

Question: I am sorry to bother you, but I have some questions about painting and drawing Krsna consciousness themes. 1) Srila Prabhupada said that Krsna is never alone, but some of the pictures in BBT books shows Krsna with flute (beautiful painting by Pariksit das,1981) with peacock, cow, calf, parrot, holding Govardhana, Damodara tasting butter etc. Should cow, flute etc. be considered… Expand>

Question:

I am sorry to bother you, but I have some questions about painting and drawing Krsna consciousness themes.

1) Srila Prabhupada said that Krsna is never alone, but some of the pictures in BBT books shows Krsna with flute (beautiful painting by Pariksit das,1981) with peacock, cow, calf, parrot, holding Govardhana, Damodara tasting butter etc. Should cow, flute etc. be considered as Krsna`s devotees, so actually He is not alone on painting, or such scene is not bonafide. I started to paint Lord Krsna holding Govardana hill, but composition of painting don`t allow me to paint no one else but peacock or cow.

2) You said once that early paintings, untill 1977, have much lighter tones then paintings made later. I am doing portraits of Srila Prabhupada in charcoal, and pastel, and I saw this drawing (made by Dridha Mataji). It`s rather dark, but i like it.I would like to try that white chalk on black paper. Is it too dark? http://www.drdhaarts.com/portfolio/images/port/sp9.jpg

3) Is it OK to put miniature clay dolls representing Krsna, gopis, cowherd boys, pecocks etc. on halava made Govardhana hill, during Govardhana puja celebration, or should that hill be made of rice with eyes and mouth (like traditionally).

4) Is it OK to let children play with such dolls representing Lord Nrisimhadeva, Prahlada Maharaja, characters from Krsna lila, although they might break them, throw them or step on them.

5) Sometimes when drawing Srila Prabhupada with charcoal or pastel I need to blow on the picture to remove extra charcoal dust. Should I use some small ventilator instead?

Question:

If Krishna is the source of all incarnations why include him in the list of incarnations in the first place? And why does Bhagavata say that in the “beginning” Purusha form was there? In fact Vedas use the word “Purusha” to signify the Godhead. In the Purusha Sookta (the Creation Hymn) it is said that the Purusha creates this world. We come to know that he is Vishnu since it is mentioned that Laskhmi is his consort (hreeshcha te lakshmeeshcha patnyau). Why don’t Vedas say Krishna is the root, and Radha is his consort? Why “Purusha” and his consort is “Lakshmi”?
