Shall I Allow Muslims to Stay at the Next Door?

May 6, 2011 |

Question: What is our responsibilities to our dharma, our society, our country and our own self? Can we (being a member of ISKCON) allow any other dharma person (say muslim) to live nearby us, as our neighbor, in our property, only because of money he pays? And importance only given to the MONEY? And forget the responsibility to our surroundings, and other neighbours?

Gita Press Editions of Bhagavad-gita

Question:

1) I once saw a visiting devotee who was reading Gita Press edition of Bhagavad-gita. When I asked why he was reading that not Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita, he said that because his guru said it was good for word to word translations. And then again I saw this with an initiated Indian lady devotee. She was from Delhi but based in Dar es salaam. When I queried her about this, she said the same thing, that the word to word meanings are good (or better? I can't remember exactly what she said).

This didn't seem right, but I wanted to ask your holiness. Are we meant to be referring to Gita Press's Bhagavad-gita at all for any reason?

2) I was in an ISKCON temple here in Africa and saw a compact, one inch size Bhagavad-gita which was from Gita Press and which has slokas in devanagari only and no commentary. I thought that this would be good for carrying around and for chanting Bhagavad-gita slokas as that would be the same anyway in all versions of Bhagavad-gita. Is it OK to just chant the slokas only from this compact Gita Press's Gita or other any other non-ISKCON Bhagavad-gita?

Shall I Become an IAS Officer?

August 3, 2011 |

Question: If a devotee wants to become an IAS officer, should he become? Will it hamper his devotional service and preaching services? I think by becoming an IAS he can help a lot in preaching and reduce hurdles for iskcon. Also it will be good for common masses.
