Four Ways Krishna Would Manifest In Dvaraka

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna in Dvaraka]“When Krishna was residing in Dvaraka, some of the elderly members of the Yadu family would occasionally put some important matter before Him. At such a time, Krishna would carefully give attention to those matters. And if there were some humorous topics mentioned, Krishna would immediately respond with a smiling face. Sometimes when Krishna was executing His duties in the assembly known as Sudharma, He would ask the elderly members for good advice. By such activities He is manifest as the supreme spiritual master, the supreme executive head, the superior intelligence, the supreme power, protector and maintainer.” (The Nectar of Devotion, Ch 39)

The city of gates. Built within the water, taking advantage of the expert engineering ability of Vishvakarma, whose name means “work of the entire world.” The entire Yadu family coming along, ready for protection against the annoying and persistent attacks…

Five Ways The Soul Is Amazing

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna's lotus feet]“Some look on the soul as amazing, some describe him as amazing, and some hear of him as amazing, while others, even after hearing about him, cannot understand him at all.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 2.29)

Take the tip of a piece of hair. Now divide that tip into ten thousand parts. Choose one of the parts and you get an accurate representation of what is known as atma in Sanskrit. This is the individual spirit soul, which Shri Krishna reveals in the Bhagavad-gita to be amazing.

At such a granular level, only a microscope could detect the presence. The naked eye probably wouldn’t notice; at least not without outside help. There are so many dust particles in the air, but they are not perceived at the microscopic level until sunlight pours into the…

Five Questions To Ask If We Had Surveillance Footage Of The Creation

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna's lotus feet]“For one who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, I am never lost, nor is he ever lost to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 6.30)

One side insists on proof. The scientific term is “empirical evidence.” That which can be shown to an audience and accepted with a high degree of certainty. No doubts. Something like the weather reports on the news. Written accounts, not interspersed with descriptions of the amazing.

For instance, we can believe the history books about the Revolutionary War. The language is essentially the same, though the English was a little more proper. Nevertheless, by reading other accounts from the same time period we can even learn the terms that are unfamiliar to us.

Produce something similar for the creation. Not just blind faith. Not simply a belief because someone says so. Hard evidence. Then the doubters will…

Five Feats Of Engineering Attributed To Vishnu

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna's lotus feet]“It should be understood that all species of life, O son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed-giving father.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 14.4)

“What amazing vision. Who could see into the future like that? From an idea in their mind to a finished product. So many component parts. Then there is the production on a massive scale. Purchasing the glass from this area of the world. Getting a certain kind of antenna. Then finding a factory to put everything together at a decent price, with predictable output to meet the overwhelming demand. This person deserves so much credit.”

Inventors of innovative technologies like smartphones, televisions, and automobiles receive such praise. Though used for increasing convenience in everyday life, in one view the resulting objects are works of art. There is tremendous intelligence…

Radhashtami 2018

Krishna's Mercy

[Shrimati Radharani]“To perform devotional service means to follow in the footsteps of Radharani, and devotees in Vrindavana put themselves under the care of Radharani in order to achieve perfection in their devotional service. In other words, devotional service is not an activity of the material world; it is directly under the control of Radharani. In Bhagavad-gita it is confirmed that the mahatmas, or great souls, are under the protection of daivi prakriti, the internal energy – Radharani. So, being directly under the control of the internal potency of Krishna, devotional service attracts even Krishna Himself.” (The Nectar of Devotion, Ch 1)

Five Ideas Where Speculation Is Resolved Through An Authority Figure

Krishna's Mercy

[Lord Vishnu]“Vishnu impregnated Maya or material nature simply by glancing at her. This is the spiritual method. Materially we are limited to impregnate by only one particular part of our body, but the Supreme Lord, Krishna or Maha-Vishnu, can impregnate any part by any part. Simply by glancing the Lord can conceive countless living entities in the womb of material nature.” (Teachings Of Lord Chaitanya, Introduction)

One definition for the Absolute Truth is “that which is beyond the understanding of the human being.” It must be acknowledged that understanding is limited, for the very senses are not infinitely capable. I can only see what is in front of me. I can’t hear a sound produced thousands of miles away. I can smell what is in the vicinity, and that’s it.

Surely technology has helped to artificially expand the reach, but still there are limitations…

Saving Your Work

Krishna's Mercy

It’s your first day at the new job, one that took a while to land. In truth, it was through someone you knew. Graduating college isn’t a guarantee for employment. It was a struggle to find something, but the wait was worth it. It looks like you will enjoy working here.

They give you something complex to work on. No problem. The day should be occupied in a meaningful way. Challenge the brain. Exercise the muscle that wasn’t utilized much in the past year. Video games and television show marathons don’t really count. This is the time to show your stuff, to prove that the company didn’t…

Three Kinds Of Payback Ravana Received From Hanuman

Krishna's Mercy

As Shri Krishna explains in the Bhagavad-gita, there are some people who think that this world came together randomly. Not much intelligence behind the amazing nature, with intrinsic properties so exact that they can be studied and relied upon. Rather, the mental speculation is that sex desire, kama, was the lone cause.

“They say that this world is unreal, that there is no foundation and that there is no God in control. It is produced of sex desire, and has no cause other than lust.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 16.8)

The body is a bag of chemicals; there is no difference between a living one and a dead one, except in…
