Is Kṛṣṇa Superior to Nārāyaṇa?

Recently I was approached by devotees who requested that I write a review or refutation of a blog written by a Śrī Vaiṣṇava scholar in which he refutes the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava understanding of the famous kṛṣṇas tu bhagavān svayam verse from Bhāgavata Purāṇa (1.3.28). I, personally, am not in favor of such dialogues, which only fuel up enmity among

No Real Relation Without Bhagavān

There is an important sūtra of Purva-mīmāṁsā (3.1.22): guṇānāṁ ca parārthatvāt asambandhaḥ samatvāt syāt. Its translation is very technical, so I will explain it in a simplified manner. The word guṇa here refers to objects and actions that are meant for the main yajña, which is referred to by the word para, primary. The sūtra is in relation to the action of the ādhāna and pavamāna-havis used for the saṁskāra of fire, agni. Here agni is

Śrī Rādhā in Bhāgavata Purāṇa 

Question: Why is Rādhā’s name not mentioned in the Bhāgavata Purāṇa? Answer: This is a big mystery. Śrīmad Bhāgavata is primarily a book about Śrī Kṛṣṇa. There is no other book that describes Kṛṣṇa-līlā in such detail. Out of 335 chapters, the Tenth Canto contains 90 chapters that are only about Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The Eleventh

Beginningless Avidya—Coupled with Vidya

The jīva is conditioned by avidyā, which has no beginning—anādi-avidyā-yuktasya puruṣasya (SB 11.22.10). There was never a time that the jīva was not under the influence of avidyā. The interesting fact is that like the conditioning of avidyā, the jīva also has vidyā without a beginning. Vidyā here means the awareness of being a conscious

The Effects of Karma – Individual and Collective

According to modern science, the world is made of matter, which follows certain natural laws. One of the most important natural laws is the cause-and-effect relationship. A cause is that which must exist before the effect comes into existence. Causes are of two types, namely, the ingredient or material cause, upādāna kāraṇa, and the instrumental cause, nimitta

Memory and Imagination—Boon or Curse?

Human beings are special because of their inner senses which have the ability to function in the past and future. Progress in humanity, material or spiritual, is due to these two capabilities. First, we have memory which enables us to learn from the past. Second, we have the power to imagine, which enables us to
