Question:

I listened to your lecture tonight and It was very nice. I liked it. But at a point you said "Parents are busy giving 'So called Higher Education' to their children. I do not agree with it. I feel education is very important. Most of the Devotee's in ISKCON are from institutions like MIT,IIT etc… According to me the education plays a important role in understanding the spiritual science. Please make me understand this point.

Question:

During the Sri Sri Gurvastaka Meditation. Should we meditate on our Guru or on Srila Prabhupada?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami:

Gurv-aṣṭaka meditation. Should we meditate on our guru or on Śrīla Prabhupāda?

You can meditate on both, as suitable. Yeah, as suitable means that not everything may be applicable to your own guru. Śrīla Prabhupāda said that this Gurv-aṣṭaka, it doesn’t apply to all gurus. At least the part of verses five and six specifically refer to those who in their form as a gopī assisting the… Well, especially number six applies to a gopī who is engaged in the direct service of Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa. Therefore I say you can meditate as is suitable. Not everything may be applicable.
