Success is to make One Pure Devotee

January 7, 2014 |

Question: Srila Prabhupada often mentions in his lectures that his mission would be complete if he could make one pure devotee. Is this statement used out of humility by Srila Prabhupada? What is the definition of a pure devotee? Does it mean that there is no pure devotee in ISKCON? Please can you kindly throw some more insights on this topic.

August 3, 2011 |

Question:

Presently I am working in a company and my qualification is Diploma. Now whenever I chant my rounds, in the early morning, my mind speaks to me to study further (material studying-degree) rather than chanting, so that in future it will help my career. Now i am of age 33 and married & I have twin children (of age 6yrs, both boys-Pramod & Pradyumna). Because of this I cannot concentrate on chanting. Please advise which is best for me – either to chant & work for personal care (or) to focus on further material studies and work. Please note my working schedule is hectic and I cannot do all the three things (i.e. to chant 16 rounds, work & study) and working is compulsory as I don’t have any other source of income.

September 18, 2011 |

Question: What is the status of books written by sannyasis who have either fallen since writing them, or else left ISKCON? I'm thinking in particular of Harikesa Swami's "Varnasrama Manifesto for Social Sanity," or the books of Bhaktipada Maharaj. Is it still acceptable to take guidance from them?
