Are We Favored Than People of Other Yugas?

ASK BVKS | June 26, 2011 |

English;

Question:

It is said in the Caitanya Caritamrita that Lord Caitanya doesnt come as an Avatara in every Kali-Yuga, but comes extremely rarely, so how is harinama sankirtana (Kali Yuga Dharma) implemented when he isn't personally descending here in the form of Caitanya Mahaprabhu? Does this mean we are favored to other people in other chatur yuga cycles, or do they get some extra mercy in another way?

Could you comment on this statement and explain how it is to be understood? Srila Prabhupada mentions material senses and then speaks about transcendental senses. Why does he not continue to say that devotees engage their material senses in the service of the Transcendence?

Anthropocentric View of God

May 27, 2011 |

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.

Is Srila Prabhupada Tri-kala jna?

Question: Is Srila Prabhupada tri-kala jna? Srila Prabhupada has been described as a saktyavesa-avatara (by Srila Sridhara Maharaja). It has also been described, I believe by Srila Prabhupada himself, that he was a very pious doctor in his previous life.

Question:

Is Srila Prabhupada tri-kala jna?

Srila Prabhupada has been described as a saktyavesa-avatara (by Srila Sridhara Maharaja). It has also been described, I believe by Srila Prabhupada himself, that he was a very pious doctor in his previous life. This devotee was thinking that all saktyavesa-avataras are descending from the spiritual world, from their previous life and that they would not have had a previous birth here. It may be argued that some of Caitanya Mahaprabhu's closest assocaiates, like Murari Gupta were Ayurvedic doctors, so this type of occupation or birth does not minimize their divinity in any way. Any comments on this?
