Suicide

Posted by on Jan 22, 2016 in Ask BRS | Comments Off on Suicide

suicide_2439218fQuestion from the website..

My cousin brother committed suicide yesterday night. It is very unfortunate that we couldn’t preach him or save him. Somehow the incident happened on ekadasi night.
My question is – will he be given any exempt as it was ekadasi? Does suicide also come under Krishna’s will? Can we do anything so he gets a higher birth where he can practice Krishna Consciousness ?

Resources for study of Jyotisa, Vastu, and Ayurveda

Posted by on Sep 20, 2014 in Ask BRS | Comments Off on Resources for study of Jyotisa, Vastu, and Ayurveda

0_0_0_0_229_230_csupload_50789620I am a resident aspiring devotee at Sri Sri Kishore-Kishori Mandir in Chicago, USA. I was hoping you might suggest resources for the study of jyotisa, vastu, and ayurveda.

Recently one young student was asking about Vedic astronomy / astrology, so I would like to share some resources with him to encourage his inquisitiveness.

I also appreciated very much your point from Science of Daiva Varnasrama that in the future we will be greatly benefited if devotees are competent in these areas so that Vaisnava communities can be self-sustained.

The Concept of God

Posted by on Nov 13, 2013 in Ask BRS | Comments Off on The Concept of God

Greetings, I am a lifelong Orthodox Christian and have recently been invited to ISKCON temple in Detroit, and have been attending and studying. Am struggling with reconciling the concept of God The Father (YHWH) and Jesus Christ with something that appears so foreign, so different. Is Krishna/Vishnu the same as YHWH/Jehovah/God the Father? Did God perhaps reveal Himself in 2 totally different manifestations in different times and cultures, one to India and one to the Hebrews? And if so then is Brahma somehow the same as Jesus?

As you know, we believe in one God The Father, who created everything by His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, the Word of God (the Logos) made flesh, who died and rose again for the sin debt and salvation/redemption of the whole world.

Thank you,

Andrew Kevorkian

No one has any right to end another person’s life

Question
The medical world is now very advanced. We can see the growth of a embryo in the womb in very detail from time to time. In some cases, we can see the early abnormal growth that can cause miscarriage and/or birth of a baby who is physically or mentally handicapped. This examination can usually be done in 1-2 months of age womb. If we find abnormal embryo like this, can we suggest to do an abortion?
