Krsna versus Lord Ramachandra!

PAMHO AGTSP

 When I was watching  Brghu Patis Prabhus lecture on ISKCON LA webtv, he discussed the attachment to Lord Ramachandra versus to Lord Krsna. The point is this Lord Caitanya even showed His form of Krsna to Murari Gupta ,who is the incarnation of Hanuman. So though Murari Gupta knows the glories of Krsna and Lord Caitanya as is very clear from his Caitanya Caritra.His mood is eternal service to Lord Ramachandra this is his Sthiya bhava his nitya svarupa, in the pastimes of…

Text 22   vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro ’parani tatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi

Respecting your elders but do call 911

One elderly gentleman from South Korea is taking interest in Bhagavad Gita as it is and in ISKCON, due to my facebook page.I have encouraged him to take this knowledge serious and try to kindly  learn this knowledge and help spread it to his countrymen.    One thought that came to mind was about how Koreans respect their elders: In Tae kwondo I learned the 10 commandments of this ancient martial art:   1.  Be loyal to your country. 2.  Be a good son or daughter to your parents. 3.  Be…

All glories to Srila Prabhupada Sri Sri Gaura Nitai ,Krsna Balarama and Radha Shyam

"All glories to some of the devotees " versus "All glories to the Assembled Devotees "

PAMHO
AGTSP
I sometimes listen to mangal artik at ISKCON  (Mayapur) TV .Today one devotee that lead mangal artik said :"All glories to some of the devotees "
And sometimes it just sounds like that also (whatever was the case), because of the person saying the Prema Dvani fast
This is sometimes done ,this is a mistake and actually vaisnava aparadha. So no one should say::"All glories to some of…

Why ISKCON needs the DOM !

http://www.harekrsna.org/pada/documents/dom.htm

 It limits the power of individual Gurus and sannyasis etc so Srila Prabhupada remains the center of ISKCON...and TP's so there can be no salary system, no…

The headache excuse

the headache excuse  



One older devotees was showing much hatred towards me when he heard about my article about fasting 
on Janmastami and Gaura Purnima.The reason is because he later claims he gets migraines from fasting.

Arya-siddhanta Dasa the foolish speaker

PAMHO AGTSP
Danavir Swami has a very foolish disciple called Arya Siddhanta, he thinks that chanting 16 rounds is superior to 64 rounds.
This philosophy is shared by many lazy persons. The GBC in the past had chastised the biggest Guru in ISKCON that you are not chanting your 16 rounds, we want to see you chant.
  16 rounds is a bare minimum, but…

PAMHO

 But to hell with those enemies, Sudarshan Chakra can cut their heads in  a minut if Krsna wants.But the real enemies are the ones within.

PAMHO

AGTSP

   As a child sometimes my dad used to slap me.
 And on sankirtana ,  bookdistribution, 2 times ,somone just came out of envy and punched me.I never retaliated.
But took it as Krsnas mercy, that what have I said wrong that would make someone that angry with my preaching.That was long ago in 1981 -82.
 But once in Vrindavana , around holi I had visited Srila Prabhupadas quaters at Radha Damodara temple maybe…
