Question:

One devotee from Brazil doubted the floating rocks in your pictures that they actually float. He told that these stones are not actually heavy. They are pumice stones and that is why they float. Please clarify the doubt.

No Taste for Chanting

Question:

I have been practicing for several years but when recently asked by another young devotee regarding when one gets the taste for chanting I had to frankly admit that I hadn't got it yet. I can understand that it is due to offences and inattentive chanting. If it is not too impertinent to ask, may I request you to share your personal experience about chanting. I have heard from your lectures that you were chanting 16 rounds from the day you joined. Of course it depends on the devotee's level of sincerity and one cannot put a timeline on when one gets a taste from chanting and consequently other things such as waking up early, but hearing from you will definitely inspire those of us who are struggling.

Material Difficulties, Sufferings and Failures for Devotees

Question:

1) Some devotees say that Reading Srimad Bhagavatam and Chanting Hare Krishna will award only spiritual benefits and will not remove any material difficulties that a devotee undergoes. Whereas some devotees say when Srimad Bhagavatam and Chanting Hare Krishna take you out of material world by giving Krishna Prema- why temporary material difficulties cannot be removed (if Krishna wishes). Please advise.

2) If someone utters the holy name for making fun of others his sins get washed away. If someone goes around Tulsi even sin like killing a brahmana can be removed. If someone pulls rath when Lord Jagannath is on the cart-all the sins are washed sway.If some one takes Lords remnants all the sins are washed away. Then why still devotees are suffering?

3) Many times we sincerely pray to guru, deities to remove anarthas, to award steadiness in Krishna consciousness, to protect us from all kinds of fall downs ( which happens again and again due to past conditioning) etc. Even we cry our heart out-but still results are not coming! How do we understand this?

Because of repeated failures we tend to think "may be it is not possible in this life" and frustration overcomes us.

Why Bhakti Is Independent of Other Forms of Yoga

August 2, 2011 |

Question: Did Prabhupada name his version of the Gita, As it is to give a sub meaning to tat tvam asi-that thou art, and aham brahmasmi. Why is it that bhakti can be attained without necessarily taking part in other forms of yoga? Narada Muni explains in the bhakti sutras that bhakti is the fruit of all yoga paths. My real question is Where is the tree or vine in relation to this metaphor?
