Anthropocentric View of God

ASK BVKS | May 27, 2011 |

English;

Question:

It looks like punishments inflicted on living entities as per Srimad Bahagavatam, fifth Canto, chapter 26 are cruel, unusual & disproportionate punishment. Since God is the creator of this system (aham sarvasya prabhavah), is he to be blamed. Even so called mlecchas' law (English Bill of Rights, US Constitution) have laws against cruel and unusual punishment. So is the human law apparently superior(less cruel) to GOD's law.

Question:

Certain individuals in ISKCON believe that women can offer dandavat pranams (fully prostrate on ground in a rod like fashion). To support the argument they quote SB 8.17.5 where in Aditi fell to the ground like a rod to offer the Lord her respectful obeisances. Also cited is a video clip wherein a mataji is seen offering dandavat pranam to Srila Prabhupada.

Please comment on the above two instances in the context of the proper way of offering obeisances for women.

Two Similar Questions

April 30, 2011 |

Question: 1) My question is that why god Krishna is coupled with Radharani in every temple and in every poster. What about his wives Rukmini and Satyabhama. Did Krishna loves only Radharani? What is that reason if my question is wrong? Please pardon me. 2) Why is it that only Lord Krishna in a deity form is worshiped with Srimati Radharani? Lord Balaram an immediated expansion of Lord Krishna, is not with a deity form with his wife in spiritual world?
