My vaccine mandate exemption request. Jaya Sri Krsna !!!
Hare Krsna Prabhupadanugas Webmaster !! please accept my ecstatic obeisances ! All Glory to Srila Prabhupda !!!
just wanted to share my “vaccine exemption accommodation” per my current employer and being employed as a R.N. Kali-yuga is pretty interesting right ? as is provided below my explanation of why i can’t take this injection, non devotees of God are deciding whether one is sincere in their faith or not. That is copied and pasted from the form where i had to sign…. How is that even possible ?
Actually we know it’s not. It’s completely impossible to determine from the demonic side of view. Only a devotee, and one who would see the actions of the other could pass any relevant judgement on the situation if that particular persons’ faith or actions were that of a favorable disciple of Srila Prabhupada and favorable devotee of Sri Krsna. But i did get to share Srila Prabhupada’s and Sri Krsna’s Instructions, and The Maha Mantra with this particular personality who is going to review my request. That is perfect anyway it is looked at. Anyway if this explanation of an aspiring favorable disciple and devotee of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Krsna can help any of the nice disciples/aspiring disciples of Srila Prabhupada and favorable devotees of Sri Krsna it can certainly be shared with them.
Praying all is well with you and yours in Krsna Consciousness.
As a disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, and a member of The Hare Krsna Movement, I strictly follow the four regulative principles of freedom. These are 1. No ingestion/use of meat or meat byproducts such as organs, gelatin, sinews, stem cells, rennet etc. from their killings and also, no ingestion/use of fish or eggs or any of the byproducts from their killings, 2. No intoxication including stimulants like tea and coffee, downers like alcohol, or non Vedic medicine, i.e medicines that use non sattvic, non herbal, ingredients, 3. No gambling and, 4. No illicit sex.
As a member of the Hare Krsna Movement and disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada since 2016, I offer consumables/topicals according to Sri Krsna’s direction in the Bhagavad-gita As It Is Copyright 1972. In the 9th chapter, The Most Confidential Knowledge, 26th verse, the Lord states, “If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.” Srila Prabhupada states in His Purport of this Verse, “ If one wishes to engage in devotional service to The Supreme in order to be purified and to reach the goal of life–the transcendental loving service of God–then he should first find out what the Lord desires of him. One who loves Krsna will give Him whatever He wants, and he avoids offering anything which is undesirable or unasked for.” The devotee then honors what is known as Prasadam, or the mercy left by Sri Krsna for the devotee to utilize either internally or externally on their body.
This verse stated by The Lord Sri Krsna is the very foundation for the participants in The Hare Krsna Movement, pleasing The Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krsna by following His Requests or Instructions. Any activity defying the above mentioned verse or other Vedic Injunctions is explained by Sri Krsna in the 16th Chapter, The Divine and Demoniac Natures, Text 7 of Bhagavad-gita As It Is Copyright 1972, “ Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in them.” Srila Prabhupada elaborates upon this position of defying Sri Krsna’s Requests/Instructions in His Purport to the Text.
“ In every civilized human society there is some set of scriptural rules and regulations which are followed from the beginning, especially among the Aryans, those who adopt the Vedic civilization and who are known as the most advanced civilized peoples. Those who do not follow the scriptural injunctions are supposed to be demons. Therefore it is stated here that the demons do not know the scriptural rules, nor do they have any inclination to follow them. Most of them do not know them, and even if some of them know, they have not the tendency to follow them. They have no faith, nor are they willing to act in terms of the Vedic injunctions. The demons are not clean, either externally or internally.
One should always be careful to keep his body clean by bathing, brushing teeth, changing clothes, etc. As far as internal cleanliness is concerned, one should always remember the holy names of God and chant Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. The demons neither like nor follow all these rules for external and internal cleanliness….
The demons, therefore, do not accept any instruction which is good for society, and because they do not follow the experience of great sages and the rules and regulations laid down by the sages, the social condition of the demoniac people is very miserable.”
Sri Krsna goes on to elaborate more about these personalities in the same 16th Chapter, Text 19, stating, “Those who are envious and mischievous, who are the lowest among men, are cast by Me into the ocean of material existence, into various demoniac species of life.”
Srila Prabhupada describes this mentality in the Purport to the verse.
“ In this verse it is clearly indicated that the placing of a particular individual soul in a particular body is the prerogative of the supreme will. The demoniac person may not agree to accept the supremacy of the Lord, and it is a fact that he may act according to his own whims, but his next birth will depend upon the decision of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and not on himself. In the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Third Canto, it is stated that an individual soul, after his death, is put into the womb of a mother where he gets a particular type of body under the supervision of superior power. Therefore in the material existence we find so many species of life-animals, insects, men, and so on. All are arranged by the superior power. They are not accidental. As for the demoniac, it is clearly said here that they are perpetually put into the wombs of demons, and thus they continue to be envious, the lowest of mankind. Such demoniac species of life are held to be always full of lust, always violent and hateful and always unclean. They are just like so many beasts in a jungle.”
Therefore as a member of The Hare Krsna Movement and disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, it is my obligation, my duty, to exhibit my eternal divine nature, by following the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Sri Krsna’s Instructions/Requests, in this life and/or any other. As His devotee I cannot put anything in or on my body that cannot be offered to Him per His Eternal Instructions. As a devotee of Sri Krsna, it is sacrilegious/atheistic/demonic to the Hare Krsna Movement’s philosophy to defy His existence by disregarding or rebelling against His sublime Instructions/Requests.
