Questions answered in this episode: 1. The Bhagavad Gita clearly states that the soul retains its individuality. When the soul merges into Brahman seems to forget his individuality. What cause that forgetfulness? And what determines when they become bored and come back down to the material platform? (Asked by Ranjan from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India at 01:31 min) 2. How did Parshurama exist at the same time as another avatar Lord Rama? Why did he oppose Rama? (Asked by Neha from Bhubaneshwar, Odisha, India at 06:08 min) 3. In Srimad Bhagavatam Lord Shiva is considered as the topmost Vaishnava - vaiṣṇavānāṁ yathā śambhuḥ but why do our acharyas state that Srimati Radharani is the greatest Devotee of the lord? (Asked by Rahul from Pune, Maharashtra, India at 11:48 min) 4. Srila Prabhupada condemns the Mayavadis as muddhas because they want to become God. The Brahmavadis accept Krishna’s form but consider the impersonal aspect superior. They also want to become one with God, yet their position is not condemned in Bg. Is the reason that Mayavadis consider Krishna’s form to be material the main reason of their being condemned (Bg 9.11)? I cannot visualize the Brahmavadis. Have they not read the Bhagavad Gita? Have they not heard about Krishna? Since the Mayavadis are considered offenders because they misinterpret the BG, why are the Brahmavadis not condemned? They accept Krishna’s form to be transcendental, yet they reject devotional service. Why? Is that not some form of envy? (Asked by Mukesh from Udhampur, Jammu and Kashmir, India at 14:47 min) 5. If all four bonafide Vaishnava sampradayas lead to the perfection of life then why their philosophy or Tattvas varies from one another? (Asked by Vijay Patel from Surat, Gujarat, India at 22:58 min) If you have any spiritual questions then kindly send your questions as audio or video clips by WhatsApp to +91 9987060606 or by email to To get the answers to more of your questions please click on below link and watch Ask a Hare Krsna series: LIKE | COMMENT | SHARE | SUBSCRIBE ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ** Website : ** Facebook : ** Twitter : ** Soundcloud : ** Donate : __ ISKCON Desire Tree started in year 2002 ,With purpose of spreading Krishna Consciousness movement Worldwide which is now grown as online community devoted to give a warm and friendly environment for all people interested in spirituality, compassion, meditation and wisdom.
