Thank you Message – H.D.Goswami

Jaya Prabhupada! During my preaching career, I have several times taken a break from giving classes. I have done this for two basic reasons: health and writing.
In fact, nothing gives me more pleasure than trying to serve Prabhupada and his devotees by teaching Krishna consciousness. Thank you Message – H.D.Goswami

Srila Prabhupada, ŚB 1.5.22 purport:
"Human intellect is developed for advancement of learning in art, science, philosophy, physics, chemistry, psychology, economics, politics, etc. By culture of such knowledge the human society can attain perfection of life. This perfection of life culminates in the realization of the Supreme Being, Viṣṇu.”

"When advancement of knowledge is applied in the service of the Lord, the whole process becomes absolute.”

🌞Please note that tomorrow the Srimad-Bhagavatam lecture will start at 11am EST, instead of our regular 10am EST time. SB 1.11.9 #hdg #hdgoswami #krishnawest #iskcon #prabhupada #bhaktiyoga

Krishna is not breaking anyone’s heart. Everything depends on point of view. For example, Bhakti Caru Swami came to this world to preach, but that means he left another world. Pankajanghri Prabhu is going to a better place, and he will help many devotees in this place. Of course we lament, but Lord Krishna also expects us to take His teachings seriously and realize that we are all eternal. Lord Krishna is doing what is best for every living being. #hdg #hdgoswami #shastra #vedas #iskcon #prabhupada #krishnawest

To avoid an infinite regress of present states predetermined by past actions, and in accord with out philosophy, we recognize that even as we receive reactions from past deeds, we retain the ability to make new choices. For example, a person who boards a flight, cannot leave the plane once it takes off. However that person still exercises free will on board the flight, even within a general context, ie being on the flight, which the person’s choices have predetermined.

Clearly, the lower one’s modes, the less one’s scope for free will. A human who thinks and behaves like an animal has no more free will than an animal. Free will increases as one ascends the gunas, and then transcends them. #hdg #hdgoswami #karma #feeewill #gita #shastra #vedas #prabhupada
