In a lecture at the philosophical camp 2011, Baroda, Your Holiness gave a lecture titled "Path to hell is paved by good intentions". I have two questions related to this lecture:
1) Your Holiness said that one may think that his intentions are good, but it may not be good enough and one may not even know that. So how to ensure that one's intentions are good enough? Is that possible one may try his best to be good intentioned still his effort is not good enough?
2) Your Holiness mentioned that there are some main points that one must understand, then other misunderstandings can/will be cleared in a course of time. But Your Holiness didn't describe these main points. So if I can know which are these main points that one should understand?

Question: Srila Prabhupada states, that the ascending approach ends up at the realization of brahman and paramatma but not the Personality of Godhead. Could you please explain how is it that one can realize these two aspects by this process and why does it stop there?… Expand>

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: I'd like to ask you which of these variations is correct (I've heard both of them being recited): Sri Sri Radha-Krsna, go-gopinatha /or/Sri Sri Radha-Krsna gopa-gopi-go? What did Srila Prabhupada recite? In our songbook we have sri sri radha-krsna, go-gopinatha … but the translation of gopa-gopi-go (All glories to Sri Sri Radha and Krsna, to the cowherd boys and girls and the cows of Vrindavana …).

Question: In Rigveda(RV 7.59.12) is given the Mahamrtyunjaya mantra which states that Lord Siva can award liberation just as a gardener frees a ripened cucumber from its creeper. However Srila Prabhupada in Bhagavad-Gita As It Is very clearly states that Lord Siva is under the influence of maya so it is not possible for him to release the conditioned soul from the clutches of maya (Chap 7 Verse 15 purport). How can this be reconciled?

Question: 1) As you know we have our Swarupa in the spiritual world and we can change that too. So, do you think there is one Srimati Radharani or many? Is there one Nanda Maharaja or many? One Yashodha Mataji or many? 2) So, do we have one Lord Shiva or many? We have many Brahmas and many universes and many Rudra manifestations. So what do you known about that?

Question: My question is in two parts. One, what is the mechanism which allows a devotee to overly criticize the activities of another devotee when they are also doing the same. (petty household matters). My understanding is that we should avoid blaming vaishnavas as Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur explains in His book Bhajana Rahasya as it is the first offence and the most serious offense against the name. Secondly, how do we deal with persons who are senior to us but making the first offense due to lack of knowledge about
