Call to Sankirtan

Someone has commented that the Krishnas and the Hindus will need to get involved in politics at some point, presumedly to counter legislation and/or court judgments that affect their communities, but the protests of a few minorities go unheeded, and more especially so when big commercial lobbyists snuggle in bed with government. Besides, miscarriage of justice and trouble with government regulation (too much or too little) are rampant across the country and encroach on so many areas of our lives. We devotees need to think beyond “Krishna/Hindu” religious rights concerns; all of society is affected when government is run by people who are unqualified and misguided. Srila Prabhupada’s solution is the wholesale solution: loudly vibrate Krishna’s holy names, and at the same time work to enlighten people. This alone will rectify the situation.

Bull judgment

If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull shit.


Wisconsin: No Right to Produce or Eat Food

Infowars – NONAIS.org – Sep 27, 2011

“This court is unwilling to declare that there is a fundamental right to consume the food of one’s choice without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments on both sides of the issue.”

…To quote from the main points: 1) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd; 2) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow; 3) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer; 4) no, the Zinniker Plaintiffs’ private contract does not fall outside the scope of the State’s police power; 5) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume foods of their choice.

By hook and crook they get some votes and get the responsible chair in government. Naturally they can whimsically enact any law which is against the interest of the people in general.

excerpt from Letter to Madhudvisa Maharaja, Kenya, September 15, 1971:

Regarding the government injunction, that is the worst situation of this age. The so called democratic government means some of the sudras, rascals without any knowledge of the highest aim of life. By hook and crook they get some votes and get the responsible chair in government. Naturally they can whimsically enact any law which is against the interest of the people in general. According to the Vedic literature, the government’s first duty is to see whether people are following the rules and regulations of varnasrama dharma. That is explained in Bhagavad-gita also. Without coming to the system of Varnasrama dharma there is no question of human society. So our Krishna Conscious movement is supposed to be representative of Krishna. Krishna, when He appears on this earth, He has two fold business to execute. One business is to give protection to the devotees for advancing in Krishna Consciousness and the other side is to kill the demons. Although we are representing Krishna, we are very much poor in strength. Our only strength is chanting Hare Krishna Maha-mantra. So if we stick to the principle of chanting Hare Krishna Mantra, following the rules and regulations, that will give us strength to work on both sides—namely to enlighten people in Krishna Consciousness and cut down the bad government full of atheistic people. Our only hope is to chant Hare Krishna and rectify the whole situation. I think this is possible. It has been proved in Calcutta that the Naxalites were very much against us holding our Hare Krishna Festival, but still later on they became sympathetic and did not cause any harm for us. If we follow the same principles everywhere, I think the bad government all over the world will come forward sympathetically for advancing this movement.
