Learning to Produce Films for Preaching

ASK BVKS | February 1, 2012 |

English;

Question:

I have a doubt about usage of making films in Krishna conscious preaching. I have a desire to become a nice filmmaker and make some good films to entertain and enlighten people. But after knowing philosophy of Krishna consciousness, I am in a great confusion of how to live my rest of life. So can you please kindly clear my doubt.

Can a devotee learn to produce films or animation techniques and try to preach through media by making films like Ramayana, Mahabharata etc. in large scale productions, making nice devotional documentaries, biographies of elevated devotees? or doing such thing is just sense gratification for achieving my personal goal?

Question:

As per ISKCON, Ekadasi fasting means not to eat any food grains at all. But, in the very famous Guruvayoor temple of Kerala, on Ekadasi cooked broken wheat is offered to Lord Guruvayoorappan, who is none other than Sakshath MahaVishnu. This is offered as "Prasadam" to devotees. Iskcon follows vedic scriptures, but why there is a difference in sampradaya?

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:

I have had a desire to become a wealthy businessman for some time and then heard a Prabhupada lecture where he said making money for Krishna is welcome so I started to think that making money for the movement could be my service. I read Prabhupada's books, attend weekly sangas most weeks and have distributed Prabhupada's books on an ad hoc basis but am now taking this service up regularly every Saturday (door to door). I chant 16 rounds daily and am starting program's once a month at my house to preach Mahaprabhu's mission. If I pray for Krishna to empower me to make money for the movement (if he pleases) through my business (as my service along with my other service's), is it OK? Can you clarify please?
