Condemn Modern Civilization, But Use Modern Amenities

Question:

My question is that Srila Prabhupad used to blaspheme for all new developments but we are utilizing all the modern items for our day to day use nowadays like — staying in a big building, travelling through airplane, using modern equipments for our health… how we do counteract when people ask that one way you are condemning modern civilization but in other than you are using the modern utilities…

Question:

In the Nectar of Devotion, Part1 Chapter 9, Further Consider of Devotional Principles, Srila Prabhupada says and I quote–The Padma Purana also mentions, “A person whose body is decorated with the pulp of sandalwood, with paintings of the holy name of the Lord, is delivered from all sinful reactions, and after his death he goes directly to Krishnaloka to live in association with the Supreme Personality of Godhead.”

Does this authenticate tattooing our body which I have seen is prevalent in Iskcon on North America?

Question: Prahlada Maharaja mentions in his prayers to Lord Narsimha Deva that the Supreme Lord is called triyugi becuase He appears in three yugas except kaliyuga and in Kaliyuga He appears as channa avatar. What is the reason that the Supreme Lord does not reveal His identity as the Supreme Personality of Godhead in Kali-yuga. Can someone shed some light on this with proper pramana?
