Controversy Theory













 

KrishnaPath.org is an apolitical website devoted to the free transmission/download of transcendental wisdom as given to us by Srila Prabhupada.
Recently a friend asked me to read the following very well written article and as I read it it practically brought tears to my eyes and rang the clear bell of truth in my heart. It is written by a very advanced senior direct disciple of Srila Prabhupada (pictured below on Srila Prabhupada’s right side). Often times when Srila Prabhupada’s disciples would him questions he would simply say “consult Rupanuga”.  So in this case I think KrishnaPath.org can make this rare exception of posting such a controversial article as this for the reflection of the devotee community.

Brahma-bhutah prasannatma













Because the education was very high, Vedic education. Satisfied with Brahman realization. Brahma-bhūtaḥ prasannātmā [Bg. 18.54]. Not very long ago, say about 300 years ago, there was a brāhmaṇa, a very rigid brāhmaṇa, in Kṛṣṇa-nagara, near our Māyāpura. And brāhmaṇa’s business, he was teaching. So the king of that place, means a big zamindar, Rājā Kṛṣṇa-candra … By his name, that place is Kṛṣṇa-nagara. So he heard about the brāhmaṇa, very learned brāhmaṇa, but very poor. So he one day came to him and asked him, “Brāhmaṇa, can I help you any way?” So he said, “No, I don’t require any help from you.”
“No, I see you are so poverty-stricken. You have no sufficient means.” “No, I am not poverty-stricken. My students, they get some alms of rice. So my wife boils the rice, and here is a tamarind tree. So I take some leaves and boil it, and that’s sufficient. Why I am poverty-stricken?” He’s satisfied, whatever is coming automatically, that’s all. He doesn’t require any higher standard of life, any botheration. He is satisfied, little rice and tamarind juice. That’s all. So in each and every home, formerly, this independence was very much valued. So at the modern education this independence is being killed. People are becoming unemployed, machine. Machine … High technologist means he must find out a job where technological machines are there. Otherwise he will starve, and he will have to go round, factory to factory: “Will you give me some service?” “No vacancy.”
(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 2.3.18-19 – Bombay, March 23, 1977,  At Cross Maidan Pandal)

 

So we see here how nicely Srila Prabhupada puts it, what is real success in life – Brahma-bhūtaḥ prasannātmā. This is happiness! It is there within us always. We do not have to go anywhere, chase after anything or any one, we do not have to do anything. We must simply see what happiness is there waiting within.

Jesus In The Vedic Scriptures













 

Once upon a time the subduer of the Sakas went towards the  and in the middle of the Huna county (Western Tibet), the powerful king saw an auspicious man who was living on a mountain. The man’s complexion was golden and his clothes were white (Bhavishya Purana 19.22)

“I Love You” or “I Lust You”?













We all want love and to be loved. This is the most natural thing in the world. It is the purpose of our existence. Lets see what Srila Prabhupada has to say about what real love is and where we can find it. And then let us hear from a beautiful professional prostitute on true love (now that I got your attention read on).

 

Prabhupada: The…just the opposite word of kama is prema, love.

So in the material world there cannot be prema. Prema means love. The prema is only possible in the spiritual world. Here, what is going on as love, that is not love, that is lust. A boy loves a girl, a girl loves a boy. That is not love, that is lust. As soon as there is some disturbance in lusty affair, they divorce. So therefore that is not love. So we should note it, that so-called love is bogus in this material world. Love cannot be possible. This very word love, prema, is specially reserved for Krsna. Prema pum-artho mahan. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s preaching, that the highest perfection of life is to evoke one’s dormant love for Krsna.

The love is there. It is reserved for Krsna, but due to our foolishness, we are distributing that love in so many ways, up to the dog. This is called illusion. We do not know where to apply love. If you see, all these words is touched with the word kama, kama. Kama means lust. There is no question of love. And love … Prema and kama is described in Caitanya-caritamrta. What is prema and what is… prema and kama. Atmendriya-priti-vancha tara bali kama [Cc. Adi 4.165]. Kama. What is lust? Atmendriya-priti, to satisfy one’s own senses. That is kama. Here, a boy and girl love. They say “love,” but no, it is not love. The boy wants to satisfy his senses, and the girl wants to satisfy her senses. That’s all. Therefore, atmendriya-priti-vancha. Everyone is trying to satisfy her own senses. That is kama. Lust. And then, what is prema? Krsnendriya-priti-iccha dhare prema nama. When the same propensity is transferred for satisfying Krsna’s senses… just like gopis.
