If I understand this correctly Prabhu then would it be correct to say that a brahmana can also have a black skin color and a sudra can also have a white skin color because this determinant is one among the many other determinants? What about the skin colors of personalities beyond the three gunas?
Thank you for replying Prabhu but my original question was about Prabhupada’s argument. I am actually trying to understand his argument. The problem I have is that I feel it is inorrect to extend our common experiences to a hypothesis like Big bang. In his argument Prabhupada takes the experience of a time-bomb explosion and extends it to the hypothesis of Big bang. I have problem in understanding that argument. Sorry to disturb you with my inability but if you like then please explain it Prabhu.
Thank you for your answers Prabhu. I will begin with completing “Scientific Foundations of the Semantic View“ as you have suggested. Thank you for guiding me. I will try to put in as much efforts I can.
And Prabhu I found some exact verses from Vayu purana where Krishna speaks to Brahma about His future appearance as Mahaprabhu – http://www.veda.harekrsna.cz/encyclopedia/caitanya_vayu_purana.txt
I have added spaces in the link because with the link my reply was not posting. If you like I will like to have your opinion on these verses. If not then also it is completely fine. Thank you so much again Prabhu. Hare Krishna.
Hare Krishna Prabhu. Thank you for kindly associating with me by answering my unnecessary questions.
Prabhu you said “It is open competition even in the spiritual realm.” Please kindly explain more on this point.
I knew about the references that you have given Prabhu but I was doubtful because the exact location of these verses was not avaialble suggesting that they probably do not exist now. I am doubtful because there are so many other people who claim to be God or whose followers claim the same thing. They also cite from scriptures to show that. Mahaprabhu also said that the incarnation is accepted according to the scriptural references. In such a situation how are we different than all those other people who claim the same thing? Followers of Swaminarayan are one example.
Apart from this I have something more important to ask to you. After I asked this question to you I thought about it lot. I thought that I am doubtful of Mahaprabhu’s position as Krishna Himself but there is no end to such doubts. Some people even say that Krishna is not a Vedic deity and is a recent deity something like that. Some people say that about Radha-rani too. Then there are people who reject the Vedic system itself. Basically one can go on doubting everything forever this way and never reach a conclusion at all. Then what to do? What should a person like me do in this situation?
I am sorry if I am asking the bad questions again. Please forgive me.
I am sorry but I am having a problem in understanding the principle behind this criteria that the system that unites will be accepted as superior. Please explain a bit more on this.
And sorry for asking again Prabhu but my initial doubt still remains which is that what scriptural references do we have to support that Mahaprabhu is Krishna Himself. Sb 11.5.32-34 are there but because different interpreatations are done by other scholars of Sb therefore it is creating a doubt for me. Therefore I request you to kindly explain on these verses too Prabhu. Please forgive me if I am asking the wrong questions.
