    She also said this:

    What if "God" is made out of Oreo's? You gonna go eat him??
    What a knuckleheaded argument .

    Hey Dasa, while your at it, do you think you could tell me why you dont call yourself a 'Hare Krsna' and distance yourself from ISCON?

    On the one hand you say that Prahbudda is the most important modern spiritual person, on the other you assert that all the HARE stuff is tainted and does not support your religious views adequately. (Prahbudda started ISCON and the Hares. It is his direct work (that you seem to be shunning).

    All I have said in the past about the hare Krsnas is that they were going through some political turmoil and I did not want to associate myself with them until they had soughted it out........That does not mean anything else but that.

    I was in the Hare Krsnas for 10 years.

    They are still preaching exactly the same Vedic knowledge that Srila Prubhupada had given them in the beginning.........and that is their sole purpose for existing as the Hare Krsna movement today and into the future.

    I give all blessings to the Hare Krsnas.

    This may be incorrect.......but I think you have mixed up what I have said about the Vedas.

    I have said that unless a person knows where to get authentic Vedic knowledge then they should stick with the books of Srila Prubhupada.........and that's a positive endorsement right there for Prubhupada.

    There are many pseudo Vedic teachers out there and many pseudo Vedic web-sites as well out there in the world that must be avoided.

    Srila Prubhupada is the only person the bring pure devotional service to the West in the form of the Vedic teachings.

    Others have tried but they have all failed due to their corruptable and impure ways and their lack of pure devotion to God and their poor fund of true knowledge.

    Could you identify what you would regard as the best English language version (or translation) of the most appropriate work of Srila Prubhupada for a complete novice such as myself?

    Many thanks

    These two literatures by Srila Prubhupada which he translated from Sanskrit and gave elaborate purports are all you need to acquire to understand true relgion.

    The "Bhagavad Gita As It Is."

    The Srimad Bhagavatam (18 volumes)

    Purchased from the Bhaktivedanta Book trust......in most capital cities or any Hare Krsna Temple or the Hare Krsna Store on-line.

    If you want to get reading right away then go to [ www.veda.harekrsna.cz ] and type in the search box "Srimad Bhagavatam"

    Also go the www.the harekrsnas.veiws on science.com.au

    So you strive for pure devotion to your god. What about the part that you are alive now, does not living now have any importance to you?

    In the here and now I am living my religion 24/7 so I may acquire a reasonable level of devotion towards God.

    I have been working for 50 years..................like most people.

    In my spare time I study the Vedas and chant the names of God.

    My days are filled with wonder and happiness.

    Living ones life in God consciousness is normal........because I am a spiritual being.

    Not living ones life in God consciousness is abnormal.
