Blowing on a Boil Compassion

ASK BVKS | February 27, 2011 |

English;

Question:

As far as, your very straight forward and strict (uncompromised) preaching mood is concerned, myself sometime feels a tinge of confusion as to what we should be necessary following – either we should go with a mood of not to compromise as far as philosophy, principles and instructions are concerned or in case of preaching neophytes and in mood of compassion if we are lenient at certain places, then that is alright?

Question:

One devotee in our community started a business with prasadam and developed a whole company. The prasadam is widely distributed in whole country in shops and devotees themselves sell it on farmers’ markets. The company is source of money for several families of devotees and presently it is main economical pillar of our community.

Although we produce large quantities of prasadam the process is not mechanized – everything is hand-made and offered to Krishna by initiated devotees. We use just pure natural and bonafide ingredients – no chemical stuff etc. We are very strict in this regard and do no compromises.

The company has professional image. It is not directly advertised that it is Hare Krishna company although we do not hide it in any way that we are devotees and the food we distribute is prasadam.

We are sometimes criticized by some devotees that it is questionable if the food we produce is really prasadam and that whole company has nothing to do with devotional service and it is simply karmic work. It is mainly because of the professional look of the company and because we produce big quantities of food packaged in the way the karmi food is packaged.

 

I would like to ask you what is the proper understanding of the topic of "prasadam business" and our situation.

How to Identify Namacarya?

November 19, 2011 |

Question: In Sri Bhaktisiddhanta Vaibhava, volume 3 – Genuine and False Gaura Bhajana, Page 81, Srila Sarasvati Thakura makes a point that namacarya free from namapradha and namabhasa can give the Holy Name. And further that one should take shelter of a "pure namacarya". How does this apply in today's context within ISKCON, how does one know who is a namacarya to receive the Holy name from or approach for shelter?
