Question:

I am a experienced composer/performer with my own studio and I am looking for a project/subject (I was thinking along the lines of something from Bhagavatam , but I am open to anything ). Could you suggest something?

I have written in many styles i.e. classical, jazz, rock , ethnic etc. since 1970s. I am in London, England. I was thinking of 5th canto…. 28 hellish planets.

VCD: I forwarded him the following transcript of the anecdote narrated by Caruatma Prabhu of Srila Prabhupada.
——————————————————————————————————————————————-
Caturatma das:

One night there was a darsana with one musician. I never got the understanding whether this was a person coming to Krsna consciousness or whether this was already a devotee. I always thought it was someone coming to Krsna consciousness that wanted to use their western rock and roll guitar style in service to Lord Caitanya, and Prabhupada was very adamant, and the guy kept bringing the point up two or three times and finally

Prabhupada said "No!" and he pointed, there was this beautiful picture of Panca-tattva on the wall of his room. He said "You see Mahaprabhu; kartalas and mrdanga, that is all.

Memories of Srila Prabhupada, DVD 51.

And Marc replied that what about George Harrison whom Prabhupada allowed or even asked to produce Krsna conscious musical albums in his presence. Will you please let me know how to understand this?

Question: I listened to your lecture tonight and It was very nice. I liked it. But at a point you said "Parents are busy giving 'So called Higher Education' to their children. I do not agree with it. I feel education is very important. Most of the Devotee's in ISKCON are from institutions like MIT,IIT etc… According to me the education plays a important role in understanding the spiritual science. Please make me understand this point.

Question:

I have had a desire to become a wealthy businessman for some time and then heard a Prabhupada lecture where he said making money for Krishna is welcome so I started to think that making money for the movement could be my service. I read Prabhupada's books, attend weekly sangas most weeks and have distributed Prabhupada's books on an ad hoc basis but am now taking this service up regularly every Saturday (door to door). I chant 16 rounds daily and am starting program's once a month at my house to preach Mahaprabhu's mission. If I pray for Krishna to empower me to make money for the movement (if he pleases) through my business (as my service along with my other service's), is it OK? Can you clarify please?

A Society Made of Brahmanas

Question: I am currently listening to your lecture "Some Concerns About ISKCON." I also heard a lecture recently from my spritual master HH Tamal Krishna Goswami.

Question:

I am currently listening to your lecture "Some Concerns About ISKCON." I also heard a lecture recently from my spritual master HH Tamal Krishna Goswami. He said, "originally, Srila Prabhupada wanted ISKCON to consist solely of brahmacaris and sannyasis, but then Jadurani came, what was Srila Prabhupada to do? He couldn't reject her."

It seems that since we do not discriminate who joins ISKCON in terms of their varna or ashram, ISKCON will continue to face these sorts of issues (i.e. Ksatriya Initiative).

My question: Although I understand that we are ultimately only concerned with becoming Vaishnavas, but do you forsee that ISKCON as a society will gradually evolve into strictly a brahminical body as Srila Prabhupada wanted or will the brahminical class be forced to create a seperate body to offer guidance to society? Thank you for maintaining the standard.
