Certainly A Trustworthy Son

Krishna's Mercy

[Vishnu]“Although Prahlada is only five years old, even at this young age he has given up his affectionate relationship with his father and mother. Therefore, he is certainly untrustworthy. Indeed, it is not at all believable that he will behave well toward Vishnu.” (Hiranyakashipu, Shrimad Bhagavatam, 7.5.36)

viṣṇor vā sādhv asau kiṁ nu
kariṣyaty asamañjasaḥ
sauhṛdaṁ dustyajaṁ pitror

The Varaha avatara previously took care of the asura named Hiranyaksha. This battle was necessary, as once the bad guys of this world gain any power they cause unnecessary havoc. They should be happy with what they have, but they instead look down upon others, especially those who are not like them.

The saintly class, the bhusuras, the demigods on earth, appear to be weak in terms…

Three Early Indications That Hiranyakashipu’s Boons Weren’t Perfect

Krishna's Mercy

[Narasimha]“Indignant and angry, his reddish eyes like molten copper, Hiranyakashipu said to his servants: O demons, take this boy away from me! He deserves to be killed. Kill him as soon as possible!” (Shrimad Bhagavatam, 7.5.34)

आहामर्ष-रुषाविष्टः
कषायी-भूत-लोचनः
वध्यताम् आश्व् अयं वध्यो

āhāmarṣa-ruṣāviṣṭaḥ

That he had to conjure up so many tricks, thinking of this situation and that, should have been the first sign. What Lord Brahma was offering could not be perfect. Otherwise, there would have been only one request coming from the worshiper, Hiranyakashipu.

“Immortality. Let me live forever. No one will be able to kill me. I will remain in whatever post I choose, free of outside interference. The strongest beings in the world, combined into a singular attacking force still will not be able to penetrate my coat of armor…

Three Ways Your Family Might React To Your Choosing Bhakti

Krishna's Mercy

[Narasimha]“Indignant and angry, his reddish eyes like molten copper, Hiranyakashipu said to his servants: O demons, take this boy away from me! He deserves to be killed. Kill him as soon as possible!” (Shrimad Bhagavatam, 7.5.34)

It seems like a rather innocent decision. Not that you are aiming at perfection at the outset. The finish line is way in the distance, perhaps not even attainable. This is your analysis at present, anyway. Nevertheless, you accept the promise from Shri Krishna that a little effort along the path goes a long way.

Is Faith In Krishna The Only Way To Win Redemption

Krishna's Mercy

[Shri Krishna]“Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. Do not fear.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 18.66)

Friend1: The concept of salvation is certainly not exclusive to any one religion.

Friend2: Explain what you mean by “salvation.”

Friend1: The idea that everyone in this world is a sinner. That is the reason for being here, in the first place. Not through work alone does the situation change. Not through knowledge, sacrifice, penance, austerity, or any other specifically designated effort.

Friend2: Then what is the solution?

Friend1: Born-again faith.

Friend2: Oh. In a particular person?

Friend1: Sure, or a sacred book. The idea is that you must have faith. Otherwise, everything…

Narasimha Chaturdashi 2019

Krishna's Mercy

[Prahlada thrown off cliff]“Hiranyakashipu could not kill his son by throwing him beneath the feet of big elephants, throwing him among huge, fearful snakes, employing destructive spells, hurling him from the top of a hill, conjuring up illusory tricks, administering poison, starving him, exposing him to severe cold, winds, fire and water, or throwing heavy stones to crush him. When Hiranyakashipu found that he could not in any way harm Prahlada, who was completely sinless, he was in great anxiety about what to do next.” (Shrimad Bhagavatam, 7.5.43-44)

Three Moments Of Distress To Remember Shri Hari

Krishna's Mercy

[Draupadi_Sari]“Once Bhima was administered poison in a cake, once they were put into the house made of shellac and set afire, and once Draupadi was dragged out, and attempts were made to insult her by stripping her naked in the vicious assembly of the Kurus. The Lord saved Draupadi by supplying an immeasurable length of cloth, and Duryodhana’s party failed to see her naked.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Shrimad Bhagavatam, 1.8.24 Purport)

For proper professional development others advise to not remain at one job for too long. It is something like the game with car insurance. Once you sign up, they won’t really offer any discounts moving forward. The only way to get a substantial rate reduction is to shop around for a different vendor. They will make an extra effort to lure you away, a means of attracting your business.

Three Reasons A Father Might Be Disappointed In Their Son

Krishna's Mercy

Shrimad_Bhagavatam_seventh_canto“After Prahlada Maharaja had spoken in this way and become silent, Hiranyakashipu, blinded by anger, threw him off his lap and onto the ground.” (Shrimad Bhagavatam, 7.5.33)

A brand new life headed your way. Boundless potential. They can end up being anything they desire in adulthood; at least that is the consideration prior. If the baby is a boy, the father may have certain expectations or hopes. To that end there is also the possibility of great disappointment later on.

1. Doesn’t share the same interests

The father is into sports. They love both playing and watching. Baseball, football, tennis, basketball – you name it and they spent a significant portion of their youth involved in that activity. The son will hopefully follow in the…
