Question:

If a karmi sees a picture of Radha Krsna and feels an emotion of joy, admiration, and appreciation of the picture, can this be called bhava-bhakti?

If a kanistha devotee who has faith in the supreme position of Krsna feels an emotion of joy love and appreciation when seeing the deities, can this be called bhava-bhakti?

Basically how can we define bhava-bhakti and can you experience it even when you have a mundane material consciousness?

More importantly how can a devotee transform his bhava-bhakti to suddha-bhakti?

Promoting Gurukula in America

July 28, 2011 |

Question: I have been teaching in ISKCON schools in the USA for the past 30 yrs. Some of these schools (in the past) had boys' ashrams, which I believe is a good thing provided there are qualified teachers. Most (if not all) of the present ISKCON schools in America are day schools. Do you think ashrams or gurukulas will ever be revived here in America in the near future? What can those of us who still believe in that system do to promote the idea?

Question: As far as, your very straight forward and strict (uncompromised) preaching mood is concerned, myself sometime feels a tinge of confusion as to what we should be necessary following – either we should go with a mood of not to compromise as far as philosophy, principles and instructions are concerned or in case of preaching neophytes and in mood of compassion if we are lenient at certain places, then that is alright?
