Have you ever tried evoking Ganesha ? He is so real what the fuck. I don't need to see him Physically, to know he is there. If I easily feel Ganesha . why cant I feel the Christian god or any other abrahamic religion god?
>>17274649 Senpai, it doesnt matter. Just, never go full iscon amd say that krishna is the only real one - the form that you worship doesnt matter at all. Its the fact that all is god and the nonduality. Also idk about this but ive heard that hanuman was a devotee of rama/krsna (butbi got this info from a hare krsna guy so you never know)
Ganesha however is definetly not a devotee of krsna.
Anyhow, theres a saying in india that says to not be a whore - choose one god and stick to it otherwise youll be all over the olace and confused. Look at ganesha, look at rama, look at shiva, and choose the one that immedietky catches your attention, the one that makes you feel good when you think about him, the one that simply feels right. Dont research which one prays to which one etc, just the way they make YOU feel.
Everyone who desires to be free from all anxieties should always hear about, glorify and remember the Personality of Godhead, who is the supreme director of everything, the extinguisher of all difficulties, and the Supersoul of all living entities." (SB 2.1.5)
>>17274696 Keeping a diety or a lingam carries responsibility. You are inviting the presence of Lord Shiva to stay at your house. Do not neglect your honored guest.
>>17274699 Hanuman is a devotee of Rama, and AFAI heard refused to accept anyone other than Rama as Supreme (though, considering the source, he acknowledged Krishna as prime in the story).
>>17275070 You will not convince him, and unless you (and I, by extension) agree to stay out of impersonalist threads, I would ask you tolerate and stay civil.
>>17275842 Oh you really should. I think you would like the symbolism of Ravana and his ten heads.
>>17275865 Lord Rama also prayed to Lord Shiva. Can we not emulate and try to at least here turn the rift between our respective schools into spiritual competition rather than mundane enmity? Look for the Supersoul in each other's hearts, and just be happy the other is endeavoring for perfection.
(And screw you both for making me feel like a roleplaying peacemaker faggot, but there's no need for a thread to get deleted over flame wars.)
>>17275920 Sorry senpai im addicted to arguing woth you guys. The truth is - you guys are in a sense right. Maybe not in world view but in conduct. Most of you are true devotees, no matter what ill say you are sure of krsnas superiority and that is true bhakti - to the point of fanaticism. Any argument with a bhakti never ends, which is why i love doing it. Im addicted to arguments.
I may read the narayana one day but rn im going through atharva veda and the vedas for a homa i could preform, as a way for bhuta shuddhi through purifying the fire element.
>Bhakti Bhakti comes from the root word "bhaj" which means to love.
The bhakti-movement was meant to give someone the ability to love God in the present day.
>ISKCON If you guys want to look into the conspiracy you should, but Swami Prabhupada writes really decent books about God and the present day, and aside from the conspiracy around the group, these are still very highly informative books on how to love God.
If you are concerned with the purports in the book, saying "join our group" know that the "group" is also with you.
All beings are part and parcel to God and He is the ultimate destination.
>Bhagavad Gita Basically, the Bhagavad Gita is the central text of the movement, for Krsna's Message to Arjuna is the revealed word of God to us. It explains many aspects of yoga, and it is simple.
It explains how karmic actions bring us where we are, love and understanding God (Krsna) and also helps us understand the role we play in our lives.
Krsna tells Arjuna he has to fight, it is his role and his dharma to be a warrior.
>>17281761 >Cc Adi 12.51: “When one’s mind is polluted, it is very difficult to remember Kṛṣṇa, and when remembrance of Lord Kṛṣṇa is hampered, one’s life is unproductive.
>A devotee should always be alert, keeping his mind in a sanguine state so that he can always remember Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The śāstras state, smartavyaḥ satataṁ viṣṇuḥ: in devotional life one should always remember Lord Viṣṇu. Śrīla Śukadeva Gosvāmī also advised Mahārāja Parīkṣit, smartavyo nityaśaḥ. In the Second Canto, first chapter, of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Śukadeva Gosvāmī advised Parīkṣit Mahārāja:
>“O descendant of King Bharata, one who desires to be free from all miseries must hear about, glorify and also remember the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is the Supersoul, the controller and the savior from all miseries.” (Bhāg. 2.1.5) This is the summary of all the activities of a Vaiṣṇava, and the same instruction is repeated here (kṛṣṇa-smṛti vinu haya niṣphala jīvana). Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī states in his Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, avyartha-kālatvam: A Vaiṣṇava must be very alert not to waste even a second of his valuable lifetime. This is a symptom of a Vaiṣṇava. But association with pounds-and-shillings men, or viṣayīs, materialists who are simply interested in sense gratification, pollutes one’s mind and hampers such continuous remembrance of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu therefore advised, asat-saṅga-tyāga — ei vaiṣṇava-ācāra: a Vaiṣṇava should behave in such a way as to never associate with nondevotees or materialists (Cc. Madhya 22.87). One can avoid such association simply by always remembering Kṛṣṇa within his heart.
>>17281864 Sanguine is an interesting word to use. "Optimistic or positive, especially in an apparently bad or difficult situation." If you're following along with the story, Advaita Acarya is talking on how a person who was forbidden from seeing Lord Chaitanya has been shown more favor in this punishment than his own time he was beaten for espousing impersonalist teachings.
Add to this Prabhupada's last sentence in the purport, and I feel that it is saying association is a matter of where you are placing your heart, not your physical location or daily interactions, and that the banishment of Kamilakanta burned that association into his mind.
But then who am i? > CC Ādi 12.54 — Only Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu could understand the intentions of Advaita Ācārya, and Advaita Ācārya appreciated the grave instruction of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
Here, /x/ should like this. Ever do an astrological reading on an Avatar?
>Cc Adi 13.89: Thus in the year 1407 of the Śaka Era [A.D. 1486], in the month of Phālguna [February-March], in the evening of the full-moon day, the desired auspicious moment arrived.
>Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, in his Amṛta-pravāha-bhāṣya, has presented the horoscope of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu as follows:
śaka 1407/10/22/28/45* dinam
7 11 8
15 54 38
40 37 40
13 6 23
>The explanation of the horoscope given by Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura is that at the time of the birth of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu the planets were situated as follows: Śukra (Venus) was in Meṣa-rāśi (Aries) and the nakṣatra (lunar mansion) of Aśvinī; Ketu (the ninth planet) was in Siṁha-rāśi (Leo) and Uttaraphalgunī; Candra (the moon) was in Pūrvaphalgunī (the eleventh lunar mansion); Śani (Saturn) was in Vṛścika-rāśi (Scorpio) and Jyeṣthā; Bṛhaspati (Jupiter) was in Dhanu-rāśi (Sagittarius) and Pūrvāṣāḍhā; Maṅgala (Mars) was in Makara-rāśi (Capricorn) and Śravaṇā; Ravi (the sun) was in Kumbha-rāśi (Aquarius) and Pūrvabhādrapāda; Rāhu was in Pūrvabhādrapāda; and Budha (Mercury) was in Mīna-rāśi (Pisces) and Uttarabhādrapāda. The lagna was Siṁha.
