CHRISTUS- KRISTO- KRISHNA

Christus - Kristo - Krishna

Christus Krischtos Krishna Christ

Christ - Krischto - Krishna  The Name is the same

Jesus ist the son of Krishna
Jesus (the son of Christ) talks about his father in heaven: "All things are delivered unto me by my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him." (Matthew 11:27) "No One Comes to the Father than through me."
One should go through Jesus through, to the father Christ or Krishna!

SEXUAL ENERGY ON THE RIOT (A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE ON THE TEJPAL SCANDAL)

By Chaitanya Charan das

The accusation of sexual abuse leveled against Tarun Tejpal, former Tehelka editor, highlights the dangerous riot of sexual energy in today’s culture. Irrespective of the truth of the allegation, the undeniable tragic truth is that sexual abuse, even if under-reported, is widespread in our society. But as long as such abuses happen in remote villages, mainstream India tends to ascribe it to the backwardness of those people.
However, as happened in the Nirbhaya gangrape case, when sexual abuse happens in the heart of mainstream society, in a bus on the streets of the national capital, and to someone who is very much a part of the forward-looking society – a medical student returning after watching a movie, that makes India sit up in alarm and take notice, in fact, march up in anger and demand action. The Nirbhaya case provoked national outrage and rightly so.

FEW WORDS ABOUT NELSON MANDELA









By Bhakti Caitanya Swami
In 1992, shortly after coming out of prison, but before he became President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela visited our Sri Sri Radha Radhanatha temple in Durban, South Africa. I got to show him around.
On the whole he was very nice, but the most interesting thing was when we went into the temple room. We took him over to see Srila Prabhupada, and he offered obeisances. Then he and I sat down on the other side of the temple room and spoke a little. I was explaining about our movement and what Srila Prabhupada did to establish it – how he travelled single handed from India and got everything started.
At one point Mr Mandela asked me, in a very pointed way, “how did he do it?” he was really struck by Srila Prabhupada and his achievements in the face of adversity. So I explained further about how Srila Prabhupada was spiritually empowered, and he appreciated that.
He also liked prasadam a lot.
Mr Mandela came to our temple again in 1994, when he was President, on an official visit. I was not there at the time, so I don’t know the details of that visit, but I understand it went very nicely.
Then in 1997 our Durban Food for Life devotees put on a large scale programme for 40,000 school children in a stadium, and Mr Mandela attended. He was only meant to stay for an hour or so, but he ended up staying for maybe four or five hours, and afterwards said it had been the happiest day of his life. That day he interacted no numerous occasions with different devotees, and saw very clearly that it was a Hare Krishna programme, so it certainly must have also made a great impact on his heart.
Now he has moved off to his next lifetime, but I’m sure there are significant benefits there on the transcendental platform for him

THE PERSONIFICATION OF CHANTING SUKADEVA GOSWAMI



Sukadeva Gosvami Speaks Srimad-Bhagavatam



"So sravanam is so perfect also. Pariksit Maharaja attained perfection simply by hearing seven days. Similarly, Sukadeva Gosvami, he also attained perfection by speaking seven days to Pariksit Maharaja. Sravanam kirtanam visnoh smaranam."

THE PERSONIFICATION OF REMEMBERING



Lord Nrsimha Blesses Prahlada Maharaja



"Prahlada Maharaja, he was put into so many difficulties by his atheist father, Hiranyakasipu, but he was simply remembering Narayana, Krsna. Because he was a child, five years old, how he can fight with his father? His father was the greatest demon, powerful, and he was against the child. So he used to simply think of Krsna, smaranam."

THE PERSONIFICATION OF FRIENDSHIP WITH THE LORD



Arjuna and Lord Krsna on Battlefield of Kuruksetra



"....Krsna-sakha, Arjuna, is related with Krsna eternally. Eternally as friend. How eternally? What is the proof? There is in the Bhagavad-gita. When Arjuna inquired... When Krsna said that "This system of yoga I explained to the sun-god millions of years ago,"imam vivasvate yogam proktavan aham avyayam, at that time, to clear the idea, Arjuna, for our sake, he inquired, "My dear Krsna, we are contemporaries. You are born the other day along with me. How can I believe that millions of years ago You spoke this philosophy to the sun-god? So what is the answer?" The answer is, "My dear Arjuna, both you and Me, we take so many incarnations, but you forget. But I do not forget. I do not forget." Therefore Arjuna is always with Krsna. It is not that in this age, this millennium, Arjuna is friend of Krsna. No. He is eternal friend. He has made friendship with Krsna. It is never to be broken. It is never to be broken. So if you want to relish the rasa, the mellow, the taste of friendship, make friendship with Krsna. Krsna is prepared to make you friend. Therefore He comes: "Please come. Become My friend." But we are denying. Make Krsna your friend."
