    Modern day life is all about:

    The result of Modern day life is depression, divorce, disease, and ignorance.

    Did you know that our great grand parents had nothing compared to what we have, but they were a lot happier than us.

    Did you know that people are more depressed today then ever before? We actually have drugs specially made for people who are depressed, to help them overcome depression.

    Did you know that many marriages end in a divorce? Divorce was extremely rare in the days of our great grand parents.

    Did you know that we have more diseases today then ever before? Fifty years ago there was no such thing as AIDS, today millions are dying from AIDS. Cancer is a common disease today. In was very rare in the days of our great grand parents.

    Our great grand parents lived on freshly cooked foods, they never ate food cooked the day before or even several hours before. Modern man can only dream of the taste our grand parents tasted.

    We want our children to go to the best Universities. To learn what? Does any educational institute teach anything about us? Who we are? Where we come from? Where we are going after this life? Why we suffer? How to truly advance in life? etc…

    The truth is that Modern Man is more uncivilized than ever before.

    Modern day mentality.

    Modern Day Mentality – Ignorance and Foolishness

    The fate of modern man.

    We are 5000 years into Kali Yuga, we still have another 427,000 years to go before Lord Krishna appears on a white horse as Lord Kalki to end this age.

    The following statements are from the Srimad Bhagavatam canto 12, which was written more than 5000 years ago. These are the predictions for the current age of Kali Yuga. Having read the predictions you will see that the Vedic scriptures are infallible. Every prediction is becoming a reality. The recent Tsumani, and Katrina natural disasters, and global terrorism is just the beginning of a long period of pain and suffering for the sinful man. As predicted, mankind is engaged in sinful activities like meat eating, intoxications, illicit sex, gambling, and irreligiosity. The result is that man will suffer more and more. Only those who are fortunate enough to realize this will stop engaging in sinful activities and thus be saved. For them the cycle of birth, old age, disease and death will end after this life. The others will take countless births to face the wrath of nature and evil man.

    The Symptoms of Kali Yuga

    Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength and memory will all diminish day by day.

    The Qualities of Men and Women in Kali Yuga

    In the Kali age people tend to be greedy, ill behaved and merciless, and they fight one another without good reason. Unfortunate and obsessed with material desires, the people of Kali-yuga are almost all barbarians.

    The women will freely wander from one man to the next.

    Women will become much smaller in size, and they will eat too much, have more children than they can properly take care of, and lose all shyness. They will always speak harshly and will exhibit qualities of thievery, deceit and unrestrained audacity.

    Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one’s expertise in sex.

    Servants will abandon a master who has lost his wealth, even if that master is a saintly person of exemplary character. Masters will abandon an incapacitated servant, even if that servant has been in the family for generations.

    Family ties will extend no further than the immediate bonds of marriage.

    In Kali-yuga men will be wretched and controlled by women. They will reject their fathers, brothers, other relatives and friends and will instead associate with the sisters and brothers of their wives. Thus their conception of friendship will be based exclusively on sexual ties.

    In Kali-yuga men will develop hatred for each other even over a few coins. Giving up all friendly relations, they will be ready to lose their own lives and kill even their own relatives.

    Men will no longer protect their elderly parents or their children. Thoroughly degraded, they will care only to satisfy their own bellies and genitals.

    The occupations of men will be stealing, lying and violence.

    People will be tormented by quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease and severe anxiety.

    The maximum duration of life for human beings in Kali-yuga will become fifty years.

    The humans will gradually come to appear like ghostly, haunted creatures.
    The Future Food of Humans

    Harassed by famine and excessive taxes, people will resort to eating leaves, roots, flesh, wild honey, fruits, flowers and seeds.

    The Environment in Kali Yuga

    The citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain and snow. By the time the age of Kali ends, the bodies of all creatures will be greatly reduced in size. Most plants and herbs will be tiny, and all trees will appear like dwarf trees. Clouds will be full of lightning. Struck by drought, they will become completely ruined.

    Western culture is demonic.

    There are many divine qualities in the western people. Including honesty, cleanliness, self-confidence, leadership, courage, justice, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion.

    But unfortunately the demonic qualities are dominant. What is worse is that the whole world is copying the demonic western values and totally ignoring the good values of the west.

    Killing of Unborn Children

    Before the birth of a child, there is good chance of being killed within the womb of the mother, by the mother herself. The abortion rate is highest in the Western countries.

    Sexual Relationships Start Early

    For the children who make it out of the womb alive, at age 14, the boys and girls start their sexual relationships, what they call girl friend, boy friend. In Vedic culture, a girl with a boyfriend is called a prostitute.

    Partying To Find Mates

    The partying habit that starts from birth with birthday parties grows into partying for real at age 16. The main aim for partying is to find mating partners. In parties, suitable mates are found and utilized.

    Drugs and Alcohol

    While partying they pick-up the habit of intoxications, alcohol, and drugs.

    Bellies are Graveyards for Animals

    They are brainwashed into thinking that meat eating is needed for good health. Their nutritional knowledge is very limited as they think that flesh is the only source of protein.

    Sex With Multiple Mates Before Marriage

    Most marriages are based on sex impulses only. Like a hunter who hunts in the forest for meat, they hunt for mates in parties. Most of the time, the catch turns out to be rotten, so they keep hunting.

    Sex Outside Marriage

    After a test drive with several mates, they think they have found a suitable mate for marriage. So then there is marriage, but the habit of hunting for mates is hard to get over. Some of them keep hunting after marriage. There are extra marital affairs in many marriages. After a few years of marriage, one or both of the couples find another mate, and then there is divorce. The Western countries have the highest divorce rate.

    No Discrimination Between Sexual Partners

    God made men and women for each other. But the West is very creative. Some think that men are made for men and women for women, gay and lesbian relationships. Thousands of gays and lesbians are officially married in western countries.

    As soon as they become young adults, earning money. They leave home and fend for themselves. The children visit their parents on annual occasions. This they call keeping in touch. When the parents are old and are unable to take care of them selves, they are sent to nursing homes. The children are unwilling to look after their own parents.

    It is very difficult to stop yourself from being influenced by the demonic customs of the West. Even a man of discrimination can be captured by the satanic values.
    Lord Krishna states in the Bhagavad-Gita 2.67

    “As a strong wind sweeps away a boat on the water, even one of the roaming senses on which the mind focuses can carry away a man’s intelligence.”
    “While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the material pool.” Bhagavad-Gita 2.62-63

    The Result of Western Culture

    A westerner says “I am very happy partying, mating and living a very comfortable life to the full, I don’t need restrictions and rules to follow.”
    What is the use of this so-called comfortable life, if after this life, you become an animal?

    Bollywood is demonic.

    Most Bollywood Movies are filled with lusty and materialist scenes. These lusty and demonic scenes do not represent India, her culture or religion. The aim of Bollywood is simply to destroy morality and India. Please don’t support this rape on morality and righteousness by watching Bollywood Movies. Every time you watch a demonic Bollywood Movie, you unknowingly sink deeper into ignorance and the result will be a hellish life, even in this life. Please stop watching Bollywood Movies from today.

    Would you allow your wife or daughter to perform a silly dance, half naked on the street?

    No? Well then, why do you watch the daughters and wives of others dancing silly and half naked?

    According to Vedic culture, only a prostitute would dance half naked on the street? And those watching a prostitute are promoting prostitution.

    If you want to keep your righteousness values, avoid Bollywood Movies. Until around the late 70’s, Bollywood movies portrayed good values and promoted righteousness. The old Bollywood movies used to literally make everyone cry. But now, Bollywood movies have become stupid, silly, and demonic. The theme of most Bollywood movies is lust. Boy going after girl, and girl going after boy.

    The Bollywood movies of today promote irreligion, meat eating, drinking, gambling, materialism, partying, discoing, lust, and greed. These are the qualities that lead to hell.

    What is Western culture?

    Partying, discoing, meat eating, drinking, having relationships before marriage (boy friend/girl friend), having relationships after marriage, having no respect for the elders and no responsibility for ones actions. Enjoy today and forget about tomorrow, as though this is the only life.

    The Vedic culture is the richest and most peaceful of all cultures, but people watching Bollywood movies truly believe that they portray Vedic values, but this is completely false. Bollywood movies are nothing but demonic (anti-Vedic). The makers of Bollywood movies are taking part in destroying India, her culture and true identity.

    Bollywood promotes marriages based on lust. The simple fact is that many marriages end in a divorce today, because it was based on lust.

    What are the Qualities of Demoniac People?

    In the Bhagavad-Gita, Lord Krishna defines the qualities of demonic people:

    “Pride, arrogance, conceit, anger, harshness and ignorance, these qualities belong to those of demoniac nature, O son of Påthä.” (Bg. 16.4)

    Modern lifestyle of meat eating, drinking, partying, discoing, visiting gambling cities, sexual lust, lust for material things, greed, ego, arrogance, desires, and relationships before marriage and outside marriage turns a righteous and intelligent person into a person full of lust, greed, anger and ignorance. A demon.

    Western culture, slowly and unknowingly drains away the righteousness qualities in a person.

    Lord Krishna states in the Bhagavad-Gita (2.67) “As a strong wind sweeps away a boat on the water, even one of the roaming senses on which the mind focuses can carry away a man’s intelligence.”

    “While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the material pool.” (Bg. 2.62-63)

    So what causes one to engage in sinful acts?

    This question was asked by Arjuna to Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna said: “It is lust only, Arjuna, which is born of contact with the material mode of passion and later transformed into wrath, and which is the all-devouring sinful enemy of this world.” (Bg. 3.36-37)

    What are The Gates to Hell?

    Lord Krishna answers this question in the Bhagavad-Gita (16.21) “There are three gates leading to hell. Lust, anger, and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul.”

    What are the Alternatives to the Demonic Bollywood Movies and Serials?

    Everyone needs some entertainment; simply give up demonic Bollywood for devotional CDs, DVDs, and channels.

    Here are some recommendations:

    • Chopra’s Mahabharata DVDs, just search on the Internet. There are many vendors. My family and I have seen these DVDs many times and my kids just love them.
    • Vishnu Puran DVDs. Just excellent.
    • Abhhay Charan. The story of Srila Prabhupada, excellent.
    • Devotional movies on DVDs, the top most spiritual knowledge. I love Harishchandra, Malik with Rajesh Khanna, and That’s Life with Sanjeev Kumar. Available from www.krishna.com
    • Srila Prabhupada’s MP3 CD set. Listen to his excellent lectures. Available from www.krishna.com

    Devotional TV Channels

    Aastha TV

    This channel has 24/7 devotional programs in mainly Hindi and some in English. Bhagavad-Gita lectures and discourses, Krishna katha. Live devotional programs from India and so on. This channel is available on Direct TV in the USA.

    Conclusion

    The message of the Bhagavad-Gita is very clear. Give up the demonic qualities of meat eating, gambling, partying, discoing, boy friend/girl friend business, drinking, and take up Bhakti Yoga (devotional service onto Lord Krishna). Or you will take birth in the plant and animal kingdom after this life. Then for 8 million births, you will wonder from one species of plant and animal body to another. Only a complete fool would waste this rare human birth.

    Modern education - breeder of demons.

    “Modern Education – Making them Demons, That’s All.” Srila Prabhupada

    Having myself studied in the West and coming across so many Indian origin children who are western educated. I totally agree with Srila Prabhupada.

    I was very fortunate, I did not join the crowd, as I was given the Bhagavad-Gita at a young age and that’s what saved me from becoming a demon. I got modern western education and also the highest spiritual knowledge from the Bhagavad-Gita and utilized my education for self-realization and helping others, rather than engaging in a materialist and non-sense life.

    The following are quotes from Srila Prabhupada.

    Indeed, it seems that the more educated one becomes, the less he believes in God, in God’s law, in the next life, and in sinful and pious activities. Thus modern education is simply preparing men to become animals. If there is no education to teach a human being what he is and whether or not he is this body, he remains no better than an ass. (MG 3)

    Unfortunately, human beings, although they have the bodies of men, are becoming less than animals in their behavior. This is the fault of modern education. Modern educators do not know the aim of human life. They are only concerned with how to develop the economic condition of their countries or of human society. (Cc. Adi 9.42)

    By the modern education we have become so dull-headed, we cannot understand the simple truth that we have to change this body. (750702SB.Den)

    The modern education, they think this body is everything. No. (730722Bg.Lon)

    After changing this body, I will have to accept another body. This is the fact. But the modern education, they do not know it, neither they believe, even the practical example is there. (740418pc.Hyd)

    The purpose of education is to make man the highest of the mankind, but modern education is teaching lowest of the mankind. (661126Cc.NY)

    So therefore the modern education system is to create dogs. He will never be happy unless he gets a good master. (731215SB.LA)

    We accept one kind of body and struggle for existence, suffer so much, again we get another body, and new chapter of suffering begins. This knowledge is lacking in modern education. And they are very much proud of becoming advanced in knowledge. What is the advancement of knowledge? (750625SB.LA )

    So-called modern educators claim that the purpose of education is to solve the problems of life. But in actuality they are teaching their students how to increase sense gratification more and more, thereby creating more and more paths to degradation. (JSD 4.2)

    You become animal. That’s all. More or less, you become animal. The modern education is like that, preparing so many animals. (710724SB.NY)

    This life is preparation for the next life. That they do not know. The modern education and its universities are completely in darkness about this simple knowledge. (PQPA 9)

    Therefore the cow is also our mother. Just as we drink breast-milk from our mother, we drink milk from mother cow. You must not kill your mother; that is a great sin. Therefore meat-eating is prohibited. But people have become so sinful that they do not consider, when I was young this cow supplied her blood in the form of milk to feed me, to keep me alive. But now that I am grown up, I am so ungrateful that I am going to kill her and eat her flesh. This is the advancement of modern education: that people have learned how to kill their mother. (N98:TQE 7)

    What is the problem of our lives? That we do not know. Modern education never gives enlightenment about the real problem of life. (SSR 5)

    The solution to all our modern day problems.

    The problems in the World today are: Drugs, alcoholism, terrorism, violence, cancer, poverty, divorce, AIDS, conservation, global warming, droughts, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and financial ruin.

    A Krishna conscious person follows the following principles; Krishna consciousness, No Intoxication, No Meat eating, No elicit sex, No gambling, Accepting the law of karma and reincarnation:

    1. Krishna (God) consciousness.

    Do you follow a God with no name, unknown address, unknown description, and unknown history, not seen, or not proven?

    In the Vedic religion (Hinduism) God is a real person with a name, address, description, and history dating back to the beginning of creation (billions of years), seen by millions of humans (the forefathers of all of us), and proven. Lord Krishna is the Supreme Being (God) who last appeared in his original form, only 5000 years ago. He declared himself and proved that he was the Supreme Being, God, to millions of humans.

    The life of a Krishna conscious person (a devotee) is centered on God (Krishna), which results in liberation from the cycle of birth, death, and re-birth after this life. The life of non-devotees is centered on materialism, lust, attachments, greed, or illusion. Which only result in bondage to material life for countless lifetimes. Material life is conditioned with misery, old age, disease, and death. There are 8.4 million bodies in which the soul keeps circulating. Out of these, only 400,000 are human species in various conditions of life. Not all the species are present on this planet. Thus human birth is rare, and one should utilize the higher consciousness to the fullest potential to break free from the wheel of birth, death, and re-birth, by becoming Krishna conscious.

    When ones life is not centered on God, then it becomes centered on lust and materialism, which leads to anger and hatred as desires are unlimited and thus can never be satisfied. Couples should first love God, which will automatically lead to love for one another. If they just center their life around each other then their desires will never be satisfied and their relationship will end in misery, divorce.

    Krishna consciousness people are totally non-violent (vegetarian), not materialist (simple), don’t behave like dogs on the street (no elicit sex), drug free (no intoxications), and don’t gamble with their life. The result of which is no mentality of violence, no AIDS, no druggies, and no financial ruin.

    If you are serious about stopping terrorism, drugs, and AIDS. Then become Krishna conscious now.

    2. No intoxications.

    Drugs are the biggest worry for parents of children. In the US alone, millions of people are addicted to drugs.

    Millions of people are addicted to alcohol. Alcohol causes health problems and human suffering due to un-controlled consciousness.

    Cigarettes cause diseases like cancer and lung disorders.

    Tea and Coffee are intoxicants, which are addictive and can affect the consciousness in a negative way.

    3. No Meat Eating.

    A man works all his life and gets a pension to live out his remaining days. The cow gives milk all her life, and then people kill and eat her. It’s wrong. Man does not need to kill to live but he kills by the millions each day.

    Animal killing, destruction of forests, and pollution is killing nature, which takes revenge in the form of droughts, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. In this age (Kali Yuga) things will only get worse by the day.

    Scientific research has shown that eating meat can seriously damage your health. Meat eaters are much more likely to suffer from cancer, heart disease, and other diseases than vegetarians.

    Killing animals is inhumane and uncivilized. They too are God’s creatures.

    Meat eaters have a mentality of violence, a person who kills animals is much more likely to kill people too. Than a person who is a vegetarian. The most violent humans on Earth are animal killers. In this time of terrorism, it is important to know that all terrorists are meat eaters. It would be extremely rare to find a vegetarian terrorist. If everyone in the world were a vegetarian, there would be no terrorism.

    It makes no economic sense to produce meat for human consumption. It takes at least 16 lbs of grain and many gallons of water to produce just 1 lb of meat. The 16 lbs of grain can feed at least 16 people while the 1 lb of meat can only feed 1 person. If everyone in the world were a vegetarian, there would be enough grain to feed twice the number of people in the world; there would be no poverty.

    The forests of the world are being decimated by conversion to grazing lands, ruining the lungs of mother earth- that convert the carbon- di-oxide in the air back to oxygen. Global warming would be reduced considerably if there were no meat consumption. The contribution to global warming by automobiles is insignificant compared to the damage caused by breeding animals for meat consumption.

    4. No Illicit Sex.

    Millions of people around the world are dying from sexually transmitted disease like AIDS. Which is caused by humans behaving like dogs on the street.

    In this age, relationships and marriages are often based on sex impulses only. This can be proven by the fact that most marriages end in a divorce. It is the children that suffer the most, all due to the lusty parents. Marriage often end due to one or both the partners wanting to move onto another mate. Just like the dogs on the street.

    If there was no sex before marriage, and if humans did not behave like dogs on the street then the number of divorces and thus single parent families would dramatically reduce. Sexual lust only leads to misery.

    Marriage beak-ups are costly in terms of human suffering and financially to both the partners.

    5. No Gambling.

    Millions of people gamble in various ways. Often most are losers. Gambling destroys the financial well being of many families and causes suffering. Mostly to women and children.

    The gamblers don’t realize that it’s the bookies who win and not them.

    6. Accepting the law of karma and reincarnation.

    If a person kills and soon after dies himself. How can be punished unless he takes birth again? If a sinner is sent to hell forever then how can God be merciful unless he is given another chance? Reincarnation and karma explain why some people are born into misery and others into good fortune. Why some are born healthy and some diseased and so on.

    By knowing that we are responsible for all our actions, one does not take actions, which causes suffering to others. This makes one very compassionate to all living beings. The law of karma makes one realize that by engaging in violence against other living beings will result in punishment, in equal proportion to the action.

    Giving charity now will result in receiving charity in the future. If you give today to the needy, then in the future when you are in need, you will receive.

    At death, all our actions taken during in life are taken into account to determine our next body (human or animal) and it’s conditions of life (rich, poor, healthy, diseased).

    If all humans accepted that this life isn’t the only one and that for every action there will be a reaction, there would be no terrorism, violence, and criminals in the world. Also, if all humans were charitable and shared their wealth (take pious actions), there would be no poverty in the world.

    People say “I want peace’. If you remove the ‘I’ (ego) and the ‘want’ (desires), you will be left with peace. Men and women must give up false ego, attachment to material objects, desires, and lust. This will result in everlasting peace and happiness.

    Reincarnation and Karma are scientific facts.
