"Is the world heading for a financial crash ?"
Please accept my humble obaisences
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
There has been a lot of "speculations" that in 2012 there will be a worldwide crisis of proportion. I have addressed this previously .
The financial difficulties of the US and some other countries are very serious,with a national depth of 14 trillion and rising, the question is when will
US default?With the cut of taxes for many companies and even tax exemptions from some companies that makes billions and even take their production
out of the US, USA is in serious trouble, with a lots of wars that is done to promote democracy , or really to boost US economy according to some ,which
does not seem be the case.Srila Prabhupada promoted self sufficiency and more natural forms of energy.The fact is the world wide
globalization is complex and KC is really needed, advance more if KC can be presented without selfish motivation on the leadership level, and empower
individual devotees to stand on their own feet and not just be institutional zombies to empower pseudo Gurus.Is it all so dark or do we just have
to remember the wise words of Queen Kunti?
SB 1.8.23: O Hṛṣīkeśa, master of the senses and Lord of lords, You have released Your mother, Devakī,
who was long imprisoned and distressed by the envious King Kaḿsa, and me and my children from a series of constant dangers.
SB 1.8.24: My dear Kṛṣṇa, Your Lordship has protected us from a poisoned cake, from a great fire, from cannibals,
from the vicious assembly, from sufferings during our exile in the forest and from the battle where great generals fought.
And now You have saved us from the weapon of Aśvatthāmā.
SB 1.8.25: I wish that all those calamities would happen again and again so that we could see You again and again,
for seeing You means that we will no longer see repeated births and deaths.
SB 1.8.26: My Lord, Your Lordship can easily be approached, but only by those who are materially exhausted.
One who is on the path of [material] progress, trying to improve himself with respectable parentage, great opulence, high education
and bodily beauty, cannot approach You with sincere feeling.
SB 1.8.27: My obeisances are unto You, who are the property of the materially impoverished. You have nothing to do with
the actions and reactions of the material modes of nature. You are self-satisfied, and therefore You are the most gentle and are master of the monists.
SB 1.8.28: My Lord, I consider Your Lordship to be eternal time, the supreme controller, without beginning and end, the all-pervasive
one. In distributing Your mercy, You are equal to everyone. The dissensions between living beings are due to social intercourse
If US defaults on august 2th ,how will it affect the rest of the world?Doomsday? Stay tuned ,if it happens a lot of devotees will be forced to take chanting
very serious out of desperation ....and forced to surrender to Krsna....and more non devotees may turn to Krsna?
