1. The materialists towards the devotees of the Supreme Personality of Godhead

“Look at those fools. They sit around and worship all day. It’s an excuse, if you ask me. They couldn’t make it in life so they’ve convinced themselves that this alternative lifestyle is superior. They think they are better than everyone else.

“I understand now why parents within that tradition keep the books hidden from their children. One look at a verse from Bhagavad-gita or Shrimad Bhagavatam and a person is…

[Shri Krishna]“Devotees solely engaged in the devotional service of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Narayana, never fear any condition of life. For them the heavenly planets, liberation and the hellish planets are all the same, for such devotees are interested only in the service of the Lord.” (Shrimad Bhagavatam, 6.17.28)

“I often hear His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada warn against mental speculation. Basically, don’t do it. It will sometimes be lumped in with the four regulative principles: no meat eating, no gambling, no intoxication, and no illicit sex.

“But are we not supposed to use our brain? I thought this wasn’t supposed to be based on blind faith, like the other traditions. Bhakti is for the most intelligent. Athato brahma-jijnasa. Now is the time…

“Are you not worried in the slightest by the threats from members of competing faiths? You know, the ones about eternal damnation. That we are following false gods, that it is satanic-like to make these statues, color them in a certain way, prostrate before, and read out Sanskrit names.

“I know there is not much we can do about dogmatic insistence. People will stay firmly in their respective corners, afraid to venture out. The mind is made up. No convincing otherwise. No changing of ways.

“Not that we are trying to get people to convert to anything. This is simply to push back on the challenge that we are practicing a religion specific to a region. Hinduism. A dirty-word, with the followers considered satanic by the least…

1. Devastated dreams

“It occurred to me as I was driving around town, while others immediately noticed the drastic change in density of people. These streets used to be bustling. There were large crowds moving about, from home to work, from work to lunch, returning home, on the way to the theater, ready for a night out on the town, and so forth.

[Govardhana Puja]“As the director of different kinds of clouds, Indra called for the samvartaka. This cloud is invited when there is a need to devastate the whole cosmic manifestation. The samvartaka was ordered by Indra to go over Vrindavana and inundate the whole area with an extensive flood. Demonically, Indra thought himself to be the all-powerful supreme personality.” (Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vol 1, Ch 25)

“What is the actual role of science within the Vedic culture? I am speaking in terms of advancement in the discipline that is based on observation and experiment. The accompanying therapeutic treatments. Injections administered to prevent disease. Surgery to keep vital organs functioning properly.

“It is certainly a great contradiction. That probably contributes to the popularity of the work. Mankind tends to find contrast appealing. For instance, the rags to riches story. Someone started with nothing. They grew up in poverty. The family barely had enough money for food and clothing.

[Vasudeva crossing the Yamuna]“While Vasudeva was carrying his son Krishna in the falling rain, Lord Shesha in the shape of a serpent spread His hood over the head of Vasudeva so that he would not be hampered by the rainfall. Vasudeva came onto the bank of the Yamuna and saw that the water of the Yamuna was roaring with waves and that the whole span was full of foam. Still, in that furious feature, the river gave passage to Vasudeva to cross, just as the great Indian Ocean gave a path to Lord Rama when He was bridging over the gulf.” (Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vol 1, Ch 3)

Friend2: You mean like a meeting of professionals? Where they present new ideas and an outline for the future?

Friend1: Yes, and it also serves as a place for vendors and potential customers to gather. The conferences take place all over the world, but this city seems to be the most popular destination. I guess it is because they can more easily attract attendees.
