Vedas Mention Purusha As the Source

ASK BVKS | May 21, 2011 |

English;

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”?

Get Rid of Sexual Desire

February 27, 2011 |

Question: My question is, why in the material world is things so disgusting like sex life so attractive? Why does sex life start of so sweet but end bitter, and why is it so hard to get out of? In essence my question is about me being attached to masturbation. Part of that might be because I am not feeling ecstasy in Krishna consciousness or I am not losing the lower taste and acquiring the higher taste. Please tell me with your mercy how to gain the higher taste and lose such dirty habits such as masturbation. How to be ecstatic in Krishna Consciousness?
