The Law of Biogenesis: Life & Matter come from Life

Science and Religion, Science of Krsna Consciousness Comments Off on The Law of Biogenesis: Life & Matter come from Life

By Bhakti Madhava Puri, Ph. D., & Krishna Keshava Das

Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada showed his scientist disciples that life comes from life, and matter comes from life, and Srila Prabhupada further explained that these principles support a theistic conclusion regarding the origin of life. The Bhaktivedanta Institute, founded in 1976, was established to formally present these empirically verifiable truths to the scientific community at large. This article is a humble attempt at presenting the most up-to-date information showing that life and matter come from life, and what the implications of this are.

Sri Mahanet – April 2023

Science of Krsna Consciousness, Sri Mahanet Comments Off on Sri Mahanet – April 2023

The realization of the nature of unconditional devotion—


O Supreme Lord, if our devotion for You were more steadfast, Your adolescent form would naturally arise (appear) within our hearts. Then (there would not be the slightest necessity to pray for the triple pursuits of religiosity, gain, and sensual desire [dharma, artha, kama], and their negation in the form of liberation [mukti], because) mukti will personally attend us (as a concomitant subsidiary fruit of devotion, in the form of deliverance from ignorance), her hands cupped in prayer (like a preordained maidservant); and the fruits of bhukti (transitory pleasure culminating in attainment of heaven) will eagerly await their orders (from us, should any necessity arise for them in the service of Your lotus feet).

The aspiration to attain to the perfection of becoming an associate servitor of the Lord —


O my Lord, please lead me into the glance of those great devotees who, in their heart’s aspiration to only once behold Your divine form, consider sense enjoyment and liberation to be like straw, and whose separation is unbearable for even You.

— Sri Yamunacaryya

An earnest aspiration to achieve perfection in devotional service

When will I bloom in a life of servitude as Your eternal devotee, my heart pacified due to all other desires being consumed by engagement in Your uninterrupted service?
