Question:

Like my previous mail regarding entering temple during period, this also I have heard from wife. And she says as others are putting 13 tilakas, so she is.

In any of Krishna lila or Chaitanya lila pictures, it is visible on forehead of any female character like Yashoda mataji or gopis, but it is not visible on their necks or hands.

Also up till before last 2-3 years, I did not see or hear matajis putting all tilakas. But now since 2-3 years, I hear from my wife.

Is it that traditionally all devotee matajis were putting 13 tilakas? What is Srila Prabhupad's and Guru Maharaj's instruction in this regard? In 'Beginner's Guide to Krishna Consciousness' it is not mentioned whether matajis should also put all 13 tilakas.

Conflict Among Devotees – Part 1

June 26, 2011 |

Question: I have experienced that there is conflict between devotees serving under different leaders: many devotees consider their own service or approach to bhakti as the most authentic, and associating with different genres of devotees sometimes creates confusion in my mind. Why does this conflict emerge although all devotees are engaged in service of Krishna? How can we overcome conflict and instead cooperate to fight against our common enemies, impersonalism and materialism.

Frivolous Recreational Activities

August 16, 2012 |

Question: I heard a lecture today by a current GBC Sannyasi. At the end he mentioned that we have to maintain our body and that he exercised daily to achieve that. He then mentioned that it's necessary for devotees to engage in recreational activities, including sports etc. to keep their body maintained. I was very confused about that instruction, considering Srila Prabhupada mentions many times in his books that devotees should avoid frivolous sports.
