Question:

In Vedic literatures we see an emphasis of judging by the results, palena parichiyate, and this idea is more specifically highlighted in the biblical passage of Luke 6:44, where the first line states "A tree is identified by its fruit" This concept seems to be very deep, yet I do not properly understand it… Could you speak something on how to understand this principle? And how can we actually apply it, sometimes the result or fruit is hard to judge, or this process can give wrong results

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:

Once when Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati Thakur coming out from temple with few grihast disciples and he saw none of them gave anything to beggars' sitting out side. So he instructed them to give something. And he told that, if you will not sacrifice in this way than you will loose your mentality of sacrifice. And then you will not sacrifice for Vaishanava or deity. BSST himself also distributing to raw material on auspicious day.

What shall we do? Shall we give charity to beggar?

And if we do so, then is there any karmic reaction in case beggars' misuse it?

If Every Devotee is Satisfied in Their Level of Service, Why Does Laksmi Desire to Join in the Rasa-lila?

Question:

If every devotee is satisfied in their level of service, why does Laksmi desire to join in the rasa-lila? 

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikāśa Swami:

Well, maybe that’s an exception. But that’s the general rule.
But, then She couldn’t neither, because She is Lakṣmī.
It is not that She is dissatisfied to serve Lord Nārāyaṇa.

But, seeing the ecstasy of the gopīs, how they are serving Kṛṣṇa, then She also desired that.
But, it is not that She is dissatisfied. She is very happy to serve Lord Nārāyaṇa.

If You Are Struggling in Practice of Brahmacarya

February 27, 2011 |

Question: I am practicing brahmacarya, but I sometimes find it a struggle. I find the night time most difficult, I can’t control the dreams, and I end up masturbating in the dream. I read that after 12 years of perfect brahmacarya, one develops super memory, clairvoyance etc., and atma-tattva, but does this also mean no wet dream for the entire 12 years = 365*12 more than 5000 dreams that have to be controlled!

Question:

When reading Srila Prabhupada’s instructions through letters, how should one tell to himself that the instructions hold good for him too (with abject humility I say here that I am not questioning Srila Prabhupada, his instructions are very much relevant to the jivas, to the every atom in the universe) and not just to the said person in question. Sometimes if someone says, ‘oh, that was between Srila Prabhupada and the said person’ how should we reply that 'no, that also holds good for us too.’ Is there a quote from Srila Prabhupada to answer this question? I heard Srila Prabhupada talked about an analogy of sun in this context.
