Have Lunch With Krishna and ALL His Friends and Like Them.













TRANSLATION
All these devotees are undoubtedly magnanimous souls, but he who is situated in knowledge of Me I consider verily to dwell in Me. Being engaged in My transcendental service, he attains Me.

PURPORT
IT IS NOT THAT OTHER DEVOTEES WHO ARE LESS COMPLETE IN KNOWLEDGE ARE NOT DEAR TO THE LORD. THE LORD SAYS THAT ALL ARE MAGNANIMOUS BECAUSE ANYONE WHO COMES TO THE LORD FOR ANY PURPOSE IS CALLED A MAHATMA OR GREAT SOUL. (Bg 7.18)

So wait a second, it seems like Krishna loves everyone. So why do I hate certain people? Even some devotees

The Myth of the Aryan Invasion of India













 

 

Below you will find a very nice article written by David Frawley and after that we see what Srila Prabhupada our Acharya says in the matter. I think you will find that it will make for a very nice read!

One of the main ideas used to interpret—and generally devalue—the ancient history of India is the theory of the Aryan invasion. According to this account, India was invaded and conquered by nomadic light-skinned Indo-European tribes from Central Asia around 1500-1000 BC, who overthrew an earlier and more advanced dark-skinned Dravidian civilization from which they took most of what later became Hindu culture. This so-called pre-Aryan civilization is said to be evidenced by the large urban ruins of what has been called the ‘Indus valley culture’ (as most of its initial sites were on the Indus river). The war between the powers of light and darkness, a prevalent idea in ancient Aryan Vedic scriptures, was thus interpreted to refer to this war between light and dark- skinned peoples. The Aryan invasion theory thus turned the ‘Vedas’, the original scriptures of ancient India and the Indo-Aryans, into little more than primitive poems of uncivilized plunderers.

This idea – totally foreign to the history of India, whether north or south – has become almost an unquestioned truth in the interpretation of ancient history. Today, after nearly all the reasons for its supposed validity have been refuted, even major Western scholars are at last beginning to call it in question.

In this article we will summarize the main points that have arisen. This is a complex subject that I have dealt with in depth in my book ‘Gods, Sages and Kings: Vedic Secrets of Ancient Civilization’, for those interested in further examination of the subject.

Quantum Physics came from the Vedas: Schrödinger, Einstein and Tesla were all Vedantists.













How does quantum physics work, you may ask, what is it, and where does it come from?

In this article we discuss a very brief and simplified history of Quantum Mechanics and will quote what the founding fathers of this branch of science had to say about Vedic influence on the development of their theories.

We are not interested in new age mumbo-jumbo. We are interested in understanding what is real and what is false. This is why we, along with all other great minds, consult the Vedic texts. Please read on…

Currently Krishna Path is on the vans warped tour. A punk rock music festival that travels across the country setting up in a different city every day and Krishna Path distributes at least 200 of Srila Prabhupada’s original books a day and  sometimes even 300 or so! It is wonderful! The Kids on the tour are so happy to get this transcendental wisdom!

This tour lasts about for about two month.

Thus one can become a spiritual master













 

Nowadays there are so many Guru’s. It seems everyone wants to become a guru. In the following few texts of the Sri Caitanya Caritamrita we can read how the Lord Him self has instructed everyone to become a spiritual master.

As you read these texts you will find out what is meant by becoming a spiritual master. The very important parts are in bold and are underlined.

 

Madhya 7.126

TRANSLATION

The brahmana begged Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, “My dear Lord, kindly show me favor and let me go with You. I can no longer tolerate the waves of misery caused by materialistic life.”

PURPORT

This statement is applicable for everyone, regardless of how rich or prosperous one may be. Narottama dasa Thakura has confirmed this statement: samsara-visanale, diva-nisi hiya jvale. He states that the materialistic way of life causes a burning in the heart. One cannot make any provisions for the troublesome life of the material world. It is a fact that one may be very happy as far as riches are concerned and one may be very opulent in every respect, yet one has to manage the visayas to meet the demands of the body and of so many family members and subordinates. One has to take so much trouble to minister to others. Narottama dasa Thakura therefore prays: visaya chadiya kabe suddha habe mana. Thus one must become freed from the materialistic way of life. One has to merge himself in the ocean of transcendental bliss. In other words, one cannot relish transcendental bliss without being freed from the materialistic way of life. It appears that the brahmana named Kurma was materially very happy, for he expressed his family tradition as janma-kula-dhana. Now, being glorious, he wanted to leave all these material opulences. He wanted to travel with Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. According to the Vedic way of civilization, one should leave his family after attaining fifty years of age and go to the forest of Vrndavana to devote the rest of his life to the service of the Lord.
