Questions About Rejecting a Guru

December 6, 2011 |

Question: My question is as follows. How can we distinguish between these (what appear to my understanding) two different outlooks regarding the matter of rejecting a guru.

Question:

My question is as follows. How can we distinguish between these (what appear to my understanding) two different outlooks regarding the matter of rejecting a guru.

One point of view is represented by the verse from Mahabharata (guror apy avaliptasya..) and another point of view could be find in CC Antya 3.11 in Srila Prabhupada´s purport where he says:

"Damodara Pandita was a great devotee of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Sometimes, however, a person in such a position becomes impudent, being influenced by the external energy and material considerations. Thus a devotee mistakenly dares to criticize the activities of the spiritual master or the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Despite the logic that "Ceaser´s wife must be above suspicion," a devotee should not be disturbed by the activities of his spiritual master and should not try to criticize him. A devotee should be fixed in the conclusion that the spiritual master cannot be subject to criticism and should never be considered equal to a common man. Even if there appears to be some discrepancy according to an imperfect devotee´s estimation, the devotee should be fixed in the conviction that even if his spiritual master goes to a liquor shop, he is not a drunkard, rather, he must have some purpose in going there. It is said in a Bengali poem:

yadyapi nityananda sura-badi yaya
tathapio haya nityananda-raya


"Even if I see that Lord Nityananda has entered a liquor shop, I shall not be diverted from my conclusion that Nityananda Raya is the Supreme Personality of Godhead."

Chanting Holy Names for Benefit of Others

January 9, 2014 |

Question: I am listening to one of your lecture and an inquiry is made about chanting rounds or the Holy Name etc. for others.

Question:

I am listening to one of your lecture and an inquiry is made about chanting rounds or the Holy Name etc. for others.

In the Gita mahatmya there is one section where a bull is dying and all the people come and promise to give some of their accrued punya to the bull including a prostitute - she did it because she didn't want be the one who didn't because she thought she had no punya to give. But because the blessing from the prostitute alone the bull was born as a high brahmana and traced her out to find out what was her punya etc. She confessed that she was a prostitute and actually had no punya. But after some thought it was revealed that she had some parrots who used to belong to someone who chanted a specific chapter of the Gita daily and she used to listen to that and for this reason she had punya etc. So it seems that one can gift one's own punya to others. How would you explain this?

Women Shouldn't Be Trusted

Question: Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu rajkulesu ca. Every one in India they know this verse of Chanakya Pandit including our foundar-acaraya Srila Prabhupada. So this instruction is only for one lady or in general or for all ladies?… Expand>

Question:

Srila Prabhupada sloka (selected verses) page no:442

Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu raja-kulesu ca

One can never trust a politician or a women. (Chankya Pandit)

It is only info available in Purana and Srila Prabhupada's selected verses.

My point is due to what reason this thing is written in Purana and Chankya Pandit also written in his book nowadays all over India and world this verse is very famous. Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu rajkulesu ca. Every one in India they know this verse of Chanakya Pandit including our foundar-acaraya Srila Prabhupada. So this instruction is only for one lady or in general or for all ladies?
