True Religion is Eternal with a Seen and Proven God
Use Posters and Signs with Bhagavad-Gita Teachings to Promote the Truth
Sanatan-Dharma is the only religion that is universal, eternal, with a real, seen, and proven God, and personal service to God with Deity worship. Unfortunately due to lack of preaching it has diminished and the other religions which are not eternal, not universal, and with God completely unknown, unseen, and unknowable are flourishing due to preaching. Using a strategy of false hopes, false knowledge, and instilling fear of hell if they didn’t follow. Those who are intelligent will see the truth and realize that God is real, seen, proven, and eternal. His religion is also eternal, Sanatan-Dharma.
Providing a Place for Just Bowing Dow to Deities is not Good Enough Now – Temples Must Give Vedic Knowledge To Every Visitor Always
It is Vedic spiritual knowledge that can purify every soul.
“Knowledge is the cause of liberation and ignorance is the cause of bondage to material life.” (Lord Krishna, Uddhava-Gita)
“Salvation does not come from the mere sight of me without strenuous yogic practices. Whoever thoroughly understands my law, is released from the net of suffering even though he may never see me.” “Just as man cannot be cured of a disease by the mere sight of a physician without taking the prescribed medicine, similarly the one who hears my Dharma but does not put it into practice, he cannot be liberated by mere sight.” (Lord Buddha, BC 25.78)
“Now we have got so many students and so many temples but I am fearful that if we expand too much in this way that we shall become weakened and gradually the whole thing will become lost. Just like milk. We may thin it more and more with water for cheating the customer, but in the end it will cease to be any longer milk. Better to boil the milk now very vigorously and make it thick and sweet, that is the best process. So let us concentrate on training our devotees very thoroughly in the knowledge of Krishna Consciousness from our books, from tapes, by discussing always, and in so many ways instruct them in the right propositions.” (Letter dated June 22, 1972 by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, founder acharya of International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON)
Use Walls to Preach
The walls are there, why keep them empty? Everything is Krishna’s energy (Bhagavad-Gita 9.10), including the walls. Use His walls for preaching His instructions, mainly the Bhagavad-Gita.
What You Can Do to Promote the Real Religion
Please download unique charts/posters with Vedic knowledge and distribute them to others and help promote the truth. Please do something good for the benefit of others, ask your local Temple to place signs and posters with Bhagavad-Gita teachings. You can use the posters and signs created by EternalReligion.org and/or create your own.
I have personally placed some of these posters in some Temples. Please do the same and help to promote the truth, Sanatan-Dharma.
All Temples Must Distribute Vedic Knowledge
There are 3 no brainier ways all Temples can distribute Vedic spiritual knowledge to all visitors.
1. Distribute printed copies of booklets with Bhagavad-Gita teachings.
Some booklets are below:
2. Place posters on walls with Bhagavad-Gita teachings.
Some posters are below:
3. Place links to booklets on your web site so the visitors can learn something. The booklet pdf files are available from this site, at no charge.
EternalReligion.org will place posters in your Temple free of charge, if you are poor. Otherwise donations are welcome to support the work of EternalReligion.org.
Temples can create their own booklets provided it’s written by knowledgeable and practicing Vedic followers or they can simply take the booklet files created by EternalReligion.org, and get them printed and then distribute. Or EternalReligion.org can send you the printed booklets, and you just pay the cost. You can also customize the booklets created by EternalReligion.org with your Temple name and details.
The Temples should use the money donated by the public to benefit the public and not misuse it by doing nothing to help elevate the public. Providing a place for people to just come, bow down and go home, is not good enough these days. Knowledge is very important. Lord Krishna in His form as Ved Vasya compiled millions of verses in the Vedic scriptures. He didn’t do this for His own pleasure. He did this for us, so we can learn and become elevated via knowledge.
The founder of ISKCON, His Divine Grace Swami Srila Prabhupada wrote more than 80 books, so that people will read and learn something. Knowledge distribution was his important instruction. We also have to preach appropriately using the appropriate material according to the audience, time, place, and circumstances.
Today the people are much degraded than 50 years ago and thus new preaching methods and materials have to be developed and used. We can’t give all patients the same old medicine, use the latest medicine. The old medicine will not work for new diseases. The newest diseases among the humans is complex mentalities, constant meditation on social media sites and constant hearing of cell phones. Basically people have surrendered to their senses instead of the master of the senses, Rishikesh (Lord Krishna).
People now days have complex and variety of mentalities. A variety of preaching has to be deployed to make everyone understand the truth.
“Although God is one, sages have described Him in different manners. For this reason, one may not be able to gain a complete understanding of God from one ordinary spiritual master.” (Lord Krishna, Uddhava-Gita 3.31)
People have to learn from Gurus on a regular basis by listening to their Kathas. Thus all Temples must have regular Kathas by genuine Gurus. If too few people come, it’s because people have gone to Temples many times and learned nothing and so they now don’t bother going to Temples. It’s not their fault. The Temples will have to work hard to bring back the people.
“Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized souls can impart knowledge unto you because they have seen the truth.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.34)
Preaching is the Highest Bhakti
“For one who explains the supreme secret to the devotees, devotional service is guaranteed, and at the end he will come back to Me. There is no servant in this world more dear to Me than he, nor will there ever be one more dear.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.68-69)
“One who liberally imparts these instructions to My devotees is the bestower of the Absolute Truth, and to him I give My very self. (Lord Krishna, Uddhava Gita 23.26 (Chapter titled ‘Bhakti-Yoga’))
Many ISKCON and non-ISKCON Temples around the world are using the preaching material created by EternalReligion.org. Please give up your personal false ego and join them for the benefit of Sanatan-Dharma and humanity.
Lord Krishna has made the distribution of Bhagavad-Gita knowledge the highest service unto Him, because He knew that otherwise the fools will not do it.
