Krishna will come

Krishna is not bound by time & space but 911 and other multitude support services which include friends and family are bound by time & space. They cannot come in time of need. But Krishna can come whenever, wherever.

Therefore, the most practical solution to all problems of life (as He is not bound by any law) is to seek the help of Krishna whole heartedly and cry out His names with love. He will surely come and save us from our problems. Lord Narasimhadev came when His most beloved devotee Prahlad was harassed. Similarly the Lord will come for us too if we cry out in love.

Lord Narasimha Bhagavan ki jay!

Truth awakens Love

Whatever your way of life may be, whether a businessman or a doctor or a lawyer, or whether it is housewife or a student or whether you have wife and children. And it is not that you must necessarily give up your responsibilities in this world; because there is a need for all these various professions for human society to function. But the greatest need for the people who are engaging in these activities are; doing it with the understanding of truth. Because truth awakens love, mercy and selfless service to all others, and that is the greatest need. In this world, there is not enough love, compassion and truth. In this world if that was there, everything else would have been provided. All shortages are due to greed and envy if you examine the situation of our planet today. So therefore to perform your duty in this state of divine consciousness, the consciousness of love, which is within you, that is the great gift, which is available in your life. So please we are not concerned with converting a person from one religion to another, we are not concerned with recruiting members. We are simply concerned with enlightening the persons to truly take advantage of the opportunity to realize the principles of universal truth and love; that is within your own heart. Thank you very much!

The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason what so ever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs. - Makes Perfect Sense!!

Life & Probability Statistics


To give some idea of what exactly is involved in supposing that life could have emerged by random combination of chemicals in a primordial soup, let us imagine that this soup covered the entire surface of the earth to a depth of one mile. We shall divide this volume into tiny cubes measuring one angstrom unit on each side. (An angstrom unit is about the size of a single hydrogen atom.) Let's also assume that the soup is extremely concentrated, so that reactions are taking place within each of the cubes within the soup.

Now, in the expectation of obtaining the simplest possible self-reproducing organism, let the reactions take place abillion times per second in each cube. And let's further assume that the reactions have been going on for 4.5 billion years, the estimated age of the earth.

As we have seen in the acompanying article, scientists Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe have estimated that the chance of obtaining the simplest self-reproducing system by random combination of molecules is at best somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 1040,000 attempts. But if out of extreme generosity we reduce the required number of proteins from 2,000 to only 100, then the probability is still 1 in 102,000.

Now, if you add up all the possible attempted billion-per-second combinations in our hypothetical promordial soup, you wind up with only 1074 throws of the chemical dice. That means the odds of getting the required self-reproducing system out of our soup would be in 1 in 101,926. We wouldn't expect that to happen in the entire course of the earth's history!

Of course, a diehard gambler might say it's highly unlikely but it just could happen by chance. But this is a completely meaningless use of the word chance. In order for a statement about an event with a nonzero probability of happening to be meaningful, we would have to observe enough repetitions of the event to establish a statistical pattern. Only this would allow us to say, "This event has probability p of happening."

For example, we say that when we toss a coin there is one chance in two that it will turn up heads. This probability is established by examining the behavior of the coin over several hundred trials. Now, if you have an event with a probability of one ina million, it would take hundreds of millions of trials to establish this. And if the event has an estimated probability of 1 in 102,000, you would need many times that number of trials. The basic point is this: What is meant by a probability of 1 out of 102,000 is that a certain statistical pattern corresponding to this figure will be observed over the required vast number of trials. If there is no possibility of performing these trials (as is certainly the case here), then there is no meaning to saying an event happens with that very small probability.

On this planet, as we have seen, you can only have a maximum of 1074 trials. Now, we can be extremely generous and grant the chemical evolutionists that the trials can be taking place in primordial soups on as many planets as there are atoms in the entire universe - about 1080. Then you get a grand total of 10154 trials - still an infinitesimal number compared to 1020,000. The conclusion is simple.

It's meaningless to talk about the origin of life in terms of chance. To say it happened by chance is just the same as saying it happened, and we already know that.

In that case, all we can say is that life is a unique event.

Krishna has a plan for us

There is so much suffering and pain afflicted to the body and mind. When we witness such apparent injustices and suffering, it indeed feels sad and difficult to digest such incidences. In fact, we try our best to justify an unjustified act. When we cannot find justice legally, morally and spiritually is when people lose it. But the truth is no matter how much we try to justify, the suffering of a living entity has no bounds. Witnessing such suffering is even more suffering. Therefore this world is nothing but exploitation and suffering.

This suffering although painful to experience and witness is actually sanctioned by the Supersoul. So the solace we can take from our suffering or others’ suffering is that ultimately Krishna has a plan, a plan that is like Him – Inconceivable and Just and for one’s own ultimate benefit. Think of it like this, a doctor cutting the abscess caused by infection caused by wrong contact. In other words, due to our misbehavior we contract infection which needs to be cut open by a knife and cleaned. Although the operation of cutting the wound is painful…still it needs to be done for protecting the body. For an ultimate good, an immediate and painful incision is paramount for the well-being of the patient.

Using this same logic, we may endure lot of difficulties in our own lives but we can take consolation and peace of mind by knowing that there is a Supreme All Perfect and Just doctor who is operating every aspect of our life so that in the ultimate sense we come out hail and healthy. Therefore although there is pain and exploitation, we can cross over such reversals by taking shelter of Krishna that He will not abandon me for He promises kaunteya pratijānīhi na me bhaktaḥ praṇaśyati - O son of Kuntī, declare it boldly that My devotee never perishes (BG 9.31)

Please take shelter of Krishna with the faith that He has a plan for us and is always looking after our ultimate benefit and in that shelter seek peace and happiness.
