Ukraine: “Our business is entirely with God and His devotees …” — Srila Giri Maharaja

BKMrdanga

Today (7/2/14) I received an email from a friend of mine in Ukraine. A portion of it is reproduced below along with my reply.

A Devotee Writes:

Dear Maharaj,

Just today devotees of your Math, ? who live in Eastern Ukraine Lugansk area, called me to explain the horrible civil war situation there. You can talk with them directly to find out the truth and I can help in interpreting. He seeks from senior devotees guidance what to do now because he fears for his children, wife and parents as well as for other devotees of his town.

They destroyed hospitals, Read More...

“Communism is a Movement of Sudras” – Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 4.11.03 AM

?At present, human society is specifically cultivating the mode of ignorance (tamo-guna), although there may also be some symptoms of passion (rajo-guna). Full of kama and lobha, lust and greed, the entire population of the world consists mostly of sudras and a few vaisyas, and gradually it is coming about that there are sudras only. Communism is a movement of sudras, and capitalism is meant for vaisyas. In the fighting between these two factions, the sudras and vaisyas, gradually, due to the abominable condition of society, the communists will emerge triumphant, and as soon as this takes place, whatever is left of society will be ruined. The only possible remedy that can counteract the tendency toward communism is the Krsna consciousness movement, which can give even communists Read More...

On translating original works.

BKG folded hands

What follows are portions of a letter with my comments related to maintaining the accuracy of original works when translating them into other languages.

One thing I noticed in your translation is that you translated this:

Dear Govinda Maharaja,

as:

Dear Srila Govinda Maharaja,

In doing so, you added “Srila” which was not in the original letter.

By posting these letters I am trying to present a historical record which must be as accurate and as authentic as possible. If we make changes to these documents to suit current tastes, opinions, or for any other reason, it may be seen as an improvement over the original, but it is a distortion of the facts, the history and, possibly, the truth.

When these distortions or misrepresentations are discovered, we will lose credibility. It Read More...

“Not to be followed by blind faith, but on the basis, basis of comparative ontological study.”

SGM_SSM1

In the Upanishad there is a line [urukradeva purushottamatha??] ?In the province of Utkala, and from the place Purushottama, Jagannatha, some flow of higher truth will come, will spring up from there.? And the personalities of higher thinking, they understand that Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati, he appeared there in Purushottama. And what sort of nectar he flowed in Orissa, in Bengal, in India and afterwards in the whole of the world? Uh? Whole of the world? The clue of the highest attainment of fulfillment of our life has been given by him. Not to be followed by blind faith, but on the basis, basis of comparative ontological study. Eliminating all possibility of doubts and suspicions about the highest goal of all the jivas. Not only a few handful of human beings, Read More...
