Avoiding Jealousy and Mayavadic Concepts – Practical Tips!
This Post has the replies to three questions:
(1) How to escape from Mayavadic Philosophy?
Actual Question: “hare krishna dandawat pranam prabhu ji how to escape from mayawadis philoshophy like ………….. and his followers? and how to deal with them?? plz help me??plz help me,my mind is disturbed due to this.”
You can not escape. They are not criminals. They are preaching a type of concept for those people who are destined to follow such concepts.
Only the people who are attaching themselves with the plenty of philosophies get confused with different concepts.
The philosophies will always exist in this world because every concept attracts a section of people.
In the spirituality, if any concept has strict rules, the takers will be less.
If the rules are less and the followers have freedom to do anything as they wish, the takers will be more.
Similarly, there are different puranas that glorify different gods to be read by the followers having different modes (Gunas).

Different sampradhayas are followed by the people according to their bhava and guna in their life.
For example, Gaudiya vaishnavam is followed if a devotee has the desire to worship the Supreme Lord in His topmost and confidential lila form – as Radha Krishna.
SRI Vaishnavam encourages revered way of approaching the supreme Lord.
There are some ‘out of sampradhaya’ mutts, cults and spiritual bodies that promote any personality as God himself that is the offensive way of devotion.
In this world now, Mayavadic concepts and pure devotion concepts are existing as two primary choices for different people.
As far as the religions are concerned, there are many religions that are mostly embraced by birth.
Therefore, there is no point of escaping from them.
You have to take a philosophy in which you are given opportunity to take part naturally. Do not bother about hundreds of concepts available in this world.

The Supreme Person Paramathma is sitting within the heart as a witness to all your thoughts and actions. If he observes that you like to get mayavadic concepts, he directs you there. If you like Krishna Himself and nothing else, He directs you to the good vaishnavas to learn about Krishna.
Therefore, the choice of our ‘way of life’ depends on our inner desire that is read by Krishna within the heart. Then, we are directed to the places accordingly.
It is endless and will increase in numbers year after year as more and more new concepts are created in this world.
Fortunate people like us will desire and get the topmost concept that can take them to the ultimate destination of Krishna.
Those followers of mayavadic concepts will come to the pure devotion stage by stage after some births.
So, we need not discourage those who preach mayavadic concepts now. Let us just give the nectar of Krishna to all. One fine day, they will become good devotees of Krishna.

(2) I am jealous even on closely related people. How to overcome it?
“Hari bol ! Prabhuji i need to ask very important thing. One mata ji asked me about this that why we are jealous of some people even they are very close to us and how can we overcome it ?”
Jealousy is the cause of our inability to perform like others.
When others perform better than us, we should learn how they performed so and follow their efforts in our life also.
Instead of doing so, we develop jealousy on them.
(Also read the serious effects of jealousy HERE: Why and How did we fall down from Goloka? How to avoid it?)
Jealousy is a weakness that takes our peace away.
This demotivates us and wastes our time and health too.
Just because we have a desire to acquire more and more things in life, we are affected when others achieve those things.
To come out of jealousy, we should desert expectations and desire to add more and more things in life.
Everyone will be given something according to his karma. Therefore, there is no need for jealousy when others get something.
Just think of the blessings the Lord has already given to you. You have been given many blessings. Be happy with them.
Others get different set of blessings. Let it be.
You entrust yourself in the hands of Krishna. Accept whatever He offers you that will do good to you.
This mindset will be good to avoid jealousy on others.

(3) How to be a vegetarian in cold countries where only meat is possible?
ACTUAL QUESTION FROM A MALE DEVOTEE:
“can Einstein relativity theory be applied in religion case also. Every religion claims that their religion best but other religion not good. so here prabhu ji theory of relativity can be taken as true in religion case. i want to know the truth for knowledge.
prabhu ji another question; in north pole place almost all people are non veg bcoz in icy land there is no vegetables and they took animal flesh, so are these people right according to karma dharma doing so and does they can cultivate vegeteble item for existence for surviving or not!! thank u,hare krsna.
In 1905, as part of his Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein made the Relativity theory that a large amount of energy could be released from a small amount of matter. This was expressed by the equation E=mc2 (energy = mass x the speed of light squared).
The atomic bomb is the product that is based on this theory.
I don’t know why you are comparing the issues among religions with this theory.
(Why Cultural India is not wealthy, but, meat eating countries are wealthy? READ HERE!)
I can take this theory like this:
“Religion is a small matter. If wrongly handled, it can release large amount of reactions from the people that can ruin the peace in the society”.
If it is the meaning, yes, religion should be handled very carefully as the religion is a sensitive matter of everyone’s faith. If wrongly handled, it may create clashes in the society.
Religion is just a way of life and different religions are like different syllabus.. Do not give more importance beyond this.
And, in Antartica, the human population is nil or very less (mostly the researchers). In all other cold regions of this world, there are some vegetables that can withstand their climate. The devotees can cook and eat them.
There is no place in this world where there are no vegetables except the regions where the entire land is covered with ice and hence humans can’t live.
So, become a vegetarian without looking for excuses. Anyone can be a vegetarian anywhere in this world
