The Meaning of Phalena Pariciyate

ASK BVKS | August 30, 2011 |

English;

Question:

In Vedic literatures we see an emphasis of judging by the results, palena parichiyate, and this idea is more specifically highlighted in the biblical passage of Luke 6:44, where the first line states "A tree is identified by its fruit" This concept seems to be very deep, yet I do not properly understand it… Could you speak something on how to understand this principle? And how can we actually apply it, sometimes the result or fruit is hard to judge, or this process can give wrong results

This question has been answered by His Grace Gokula Candra Prabhu, a senior disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj upon Maharaj's request.

Question:

About Srila Prabhupada, we hear devotees quoting Caitanya Mangala where Lord Caitanya says "I will send my senapati bhakta"; (there is also the prediction of Bhaktivinoda Thakura).

On the other hand Srila Prabhupada says about one astrologer who told him that he was a physician in his previous life; his inclination to play a physician in a children's play; and the reason of coming back (not BTG) – the killing of the snake in order to make a medicine from its poison.

The 2 info we reconciled but we need also the opinion of other devotees.

Namely, just as Drona and Dhara went into the bodies of their source the nitya sparsadas Vasudeva and Devaki, similarly Srila Prabhupada should have had an expansion that became one with its origin, the senapati bhakta predicted by Lord Caitanya.
