Can Christianity be Accepted as a Part of Vaisnava Life?

October 31, 2013 |

Question: How has Christianity come to be accepted as part of Vaishnava life? There are several devotees I know who also claim to be Christians, how can this be? I do not see how these two can go together since they worship different gods. The biblical father god encouraged blood offerings for sin, that is NOT Krishna consciousness or at least not as I see it. I may be wrong about this so I decided to write to you for an answer.

Condemn Modern Civilization, But Use Modern Amenities

August 29, 2011 |

Question: My question is that Srila Prabhupad used to blaspheme for all new developments but we are utilizing all the modern items for our day to day use nowadays like — staying in a big building, travelling through airplane, using modern equipments for our health… how we do counteract when people ask that one way you are condemning modern civilization but in other than you are using the modern utilities…

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.?

Response to Incidence of Falldown of a Sannyasi

October 31, 2013 |

Question: Please clear our doubts regarding the fall down of His Holiness Mahanidhi Maharaja. (1) When people in general see these events they may question why we criticize others, when some of our own leaders fall down, how do we answer them? (2) We want to go out and boldly to speak what Srila Prabhupada taught us, but fear that if someone raises this issue we will not know how to answer him back? By events like these our confidence gets weak.
