Re: Bhagavata Purana

I chant Hare Krishna all day, as well as some Buddhist Mantras because Krishna is Buddha according to the Vedic Line . You mean like Narasimha, Rama etc. Buddha is considered in the lineage of avatars? In the Bhagavatam Purana itself, it says so: Then, in the beginning of Kali-yuga, the Lord will a...

Re: Bhagavata Purana

Because ISKCON is what got me into Krishna Consciousness I generally stick to their framework when it comes to the Vedas, or earlier precepts in the Disciplic Succession such as Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati's works who was His Spiritual Master, or Bhaktivinoda Thakur's writings.

Re: Major Hindu Gods And Goddesses

This is a nice list. I would like to point out that in modern Vaishnavism those Deities that are the administrative servants of the Supreme Lord, Krishna, are technically referred to as demigods. In Vaishnavism encouragement of worshipping Krishna as the Source of all Incarnations is pursued, and He...

I do believe however that Buddha accepted who Brah...
