- A God-brother brought up that he heard that Srila Bhaktivinode was at one time an impersonalist. Was he ever?
- And if he (Blitz) was Krsna before, how is it he's disagreeing with what the Bhagavad-gita says?
- And Mayavadis, they do not attain that impersonal realization?
- And when I have been doing some other saguna puja, another is seen always... Suppose I am doing... Sankara pure puja then I am seeing er, Devi.... Like that it is happening. Secondly, so how to go to nirguna state? That is my difficulty
- Are the impersonalists better than the gross materialists?
- Are we not all one?
- Are you God?
- But does He not say that "Whatever or whoever does it, it comes to Me" (the Mayavadi philosophers, they say that "We can chant anyone's name, either I chant of any demigod's name or any name")?
- But just because you have two different kinds of energies, why do you have to differentiate them (you cannot say that, that the temperature of the sun and the temperature of the sunshine is the same)?
- But Krsna means... Who is He? Is He a personal or impersonal?
- But sometimes the impersonalists, they say, Prabhupada, that this Krsna consciousness is just the beginning platform, that after Krsna consciousness then one can come to impersonal realization
- But who sees all these things (mayavadi says zero, just like the sky. The sky is there, but it is zero. You cannot see the planet)? That is what...
- I want to know how I can see you as a person. What is the cure? What is the remedy? What is the solution?
- I want to know how I see someone as a person and not as an object. How do I do that? What is... You say that you can tell me how to see someone as a person
- I want to see everyone as a person, not as an object. So how do I do that?
- I was wondering if it is within every conditioned soul's heart to be an impersonalist. Is it.... Does every conditioned soul have the propensity for impersonalism?
- Identification will remain always (yes, param pada is just like you fly in the sky, go very high. So from here we cannot see that you are separately existing. But you are separately existing. It is my deficient eyes that I see that you are not separate)?
- If one realizes the impersonal Brahman, what progress can be made here from this?
- If the Mayavadi accepts the principle that bhakti is good, but at the end he throws it away, will he have a change of heart?
- If we save the common people by giving them prasadam, how can we save the impersonalists?
- In the spiritual bodies aren't there also individualities?
- Instead of just seeing black, white, this or that, I look for individual propensities, so I appreciate those individual propensities?
- Is that (in the morning, as soon as you get up, you remember that you have to do so many things. That means it was already there) just like the impersonalists? They go up into the brahma-jyotir, but they have desire. So they have to come back down
- It seems that he believes in the Paramatma present within all beings but does not believe in the jiva along with Paramatma. Is this a typical impersonalist position?
- Many translations of the Bhagavad-gita and the Upanisads that professors or students have read are all impersonal. What is the best way to convince them that the Mayavada philosophy, or monism, is not the original Hindu tradition of understanding?
- Mayavadis, sir, have been proved that if everything is zero, who sees the zero? Who sees the zero?
- Mayavadis, they say you can worship anything and it is all the same?
- Prabhupada, in this Vedic verse, tat tvam asi, is this where the Mayavadis, have begin their impersonal philosophy, "Thou art that," or...?
- Prabhupada? Buddha was the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the incarnation of Krsna, right? Then why he has preached the impersonal form of God?
- Prabhupada? How do we explain to impersonalists inductively the existence of the Personality of Godhead?
- So by observing someone's individual propensity, then I can see him as a person?
- So Mayavadis artificially think that (everything is spiritual, but due to our ignorance, we think it is material)?
- Sometimes I forget, I cannot remember the scriptures, so what would be the best clue to always defeat them (the impersonalists)?
- Srila Prabhupada, how is it that they describe the soul, the impersonalists?
- That is right, Prabhupada, that the impersonalist is devoid of the Supreme Personality of Godhead?
- The impersonalist in the brahma-jyotir, is his will in a dormant state also?
- The impersonalists improperly emphasize tat tvam asi over the original omkara. I was wondering what are the significance of these two vibrations and what is their relationship to Krsna? What is tat tvam asi?
- The jivas inside the atom, are they like impersonalists who are in the Brahman?
- They say something like "I am God." Some young people our age, they talk like that. Does this mean that we should become angry at them?
- This way, if I understand what is personal and impersonal?
- Well in this sense Fichte is closer to Krsna consciousness than most impersonalists, because most impersonalist advocate inaction and meditation on the void, but,... how can you have action without action directed toward a person or toward...?
- What class of impersonalists are worshiping the universal form?
- What is the difference between an impersonalist and a Mayavadi?
- What is your view of Sri Aurobindo? (loud laughter) Or should I have left well enough alone? He is not an impersonalist, he's not a Mayavadi
- When you try to realize Para-brahman, that is personal God; Brahman is impersonal God. Right, sir?
- Why is it seen that they (impersonalists) are making spiritual advancement?
