Chaos in Today's World

ASK BVKS | July 28, 2011 |

English;

Question:

All that has happened in the world during the financial crisis has made me feel a kind of hopelessness that I have never experienced before. I talk to many people during the day, and so many seem to feel lost as I do, because of the recent (3 years) kaos of seemingly collapsing economies around the world.

I have always had some kind of hopefulness depite all that the world churns out. But this time, its as if all the goodnesss that people have tried to do has been stamped on and negated by the tremendous greed and lawlessness of the various ruling elites including governments and corporations and political so called leaders.

I feel I have been aimless since this series of "events." and its hard to make sense of how to live in the world. I am not prone to depression and I have had a lot of "success" in life, but somehow, its hard to ignore what is happening in the world today–it feels a lot more kaotic than in the past. I feel that
somehow I need to be involved in organizing a response to what is happening and help to be part of making it better. What can I do to get grounded again and help somehow?

Different Shades of Saffron

January 6, 2014 |

Question: Why do different saffron renunciants wear different shades of saffron in different temples even if they are initiated by the same Guru (for example, Pune and Chowpatty)? I am not even sure why different sannyasi gurus wear different shades of saffron either. The question I wanted to ask is that since we are all one family; why don't we have one standard?

Question: Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu personally sang while Vakresvara Pandita danced. How come that Vakresvara Pandita then desired that "O Candramukha! Please give me ten thousand Gandharvas. Let them sing as I dance, and then I will be greatly happy." (CC Adi 10.19) and not desired for the Lord to sing on and on and he would dance continuously?
