I had no idea this book as part of the religious group called the Hare Krisnas I had no idea who they were , so I was able to read this book without really judging its source. Hare Krishna! There was a problem filtering reviews right now. I would recommend this book but with the mindset that one should not simply believe everything written but instead be very skeptical, however not from a scientific perspective but from the perspective that all religions hold truths and if one were to practice their religion as a monk they would find the same results for any religion. If he could have stopped being a sexist ass for one second I might have liked this book more. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

This book is my last remaining hope for falling in love with God again? Christianity has destroyed my image of anything related to spirituality- this book is the only comfort I have left.
I believe it may very well hold the only true message humanity ever needed to know of God.

One year at the Warped tour I was approached by a man with who was wearing really strange pants and he had this funny top-knot haircut.
He called himself a monk and had a back pack full of these books 'The Science of self-realization'. I was touched by how he insisted that the book was free with any donation I would make to whatever church, but in There was an interesting story to how I came to own this book which is the only reason I was actually able to struggle through the half of it I read. I was touched by how he insisted that the book was free with any donation I would make to whatever church, but in the end I did give him five bucks, the printed cover price.
I trusted that for this Spiritualist to invoke the word of Science, he might have something new to say. As chance would have it I was soon to depart on a crazy journey to a foreign, non English speaking country and I choose this as the one and only book to bring with. I struggled through it waiting to find something that would reflect my idea of scientific method being applied to religion in some way What I did find was His Divine Grace insisting that the only path to enlightenment was to recite his chants and invoke the words in his language to 'Praise God'.
Why must it be vocalized. My creator is so advanced he can see right into my through my thoughts, into my true intentions.
He also tended to claim many crazy things were a proven fact and offered very few sources that were not in a language I didn't understand. Basically I'm just a bit upset because I was sold an incredible story by a self proclaimed monk in clown pants. Then I took this book to a place were I had nothing else to read and I was stuck with it. There were some amazing hints on the cover that could have averted this confusion, like the size of the text used for the word Science being so small and 'His Divine Grace''s Self-Realization being so big.

You could never be God, so don't even fool yourself as if anyone would want that kind of responsibility anyway!
As opposed to the Golden Age, which of course took place millions of years ago where humans had a lifespan of , years, no less! The solution: The end. Dec 23, Jacob Senholt rated it really liked it Shelves: Finally managed to get around to finishing this after being on hiatus for quite some time.
I am still a 'fan' of Prabhupada and his way of taking rather complex philosophical points and managing to present them to a broader public without compromising the message.
I look forward to dive deeper into the more esoteric of his writings, having now read most of his introductory books.
Of particular interest will be his commented translation of Srimad Bhagavatam and Caitanya Caritamrta. Nov 04, Zaki rated it did not like it. Can you explain everything in life with an analogy? I think not. This book is mumbo jumbo. Dec 29, MonkOnAcid rated it did not like it Shelves: Any human with respect worthy critical faculties would find this book a waste of thought.
Majority of the arguments are based on the authority of texts from some ignorant ages or made with the help of analogies, either way failing to convince, to say the least. Regardless of the worthless content per se, this book did introduce me with a puzzling dilemma.
As I am writing this sentence, I cannot forget how I came about this book. I was approached by a friendly looking girl, an art student, as it s Any human with respect worthy critical faculties would find this book a waste of thought.
I was approached by a friendly looking girl, an art student, as it soon turned out. I had a lovely discussion with her on the matters of religion.
Thus I allowed myself to be convinced by her to take this book for a small tip, of course. As we were parting our ways, she shouted very convincingly, too, that this book has changed her life.
Now, the dilemma lays in how should I judge such a way of living that is preached in the book.
On the one hand, I cannot unsee the miserable argumentation that justifies such ways of living and, at the same time, I know one too many stories of how credulous believers of such texts benefit wicked leaders not to forget the car the leader of this organization was driving. On the other hand, however, remembering the seemingly sincere emotion of the girl towards such a way of life, I can imagine how it might bring some comfort, even if with the price of critical faculties.
It seems to me, that this organization is not the worst imaginable to have credulity of some explored. If one can be convinced by such arguments, one can be convinced by some far worse ideologies than, nonetheless, a life respecting one, even if not a critically assessed life. Oct 04, Ryan rated it it was ok. I had great expectations for this book and for this famous "guru".
But then I did not like either much at all. A couple examples of the deal breakers: Any person in any mom I had great expectations for this book and for this famous "guru". Any person in any moment can find God, with, without, or even despite any spiritual leader. Like the Pope to Christianity, I think he is hiding or missing the point of the spirituality.
Then after somewhat legitmately criticizing major religions for accidentally steering people away from God, and criticizing other gurus for letting their followers worship them like a God which is where all religions end up wrong if they are not vigilant against it , a reporter is questioning him about the flash and opulance in which he sometimes travels. He responds, "God travels in a golden car.
If the disciples offer the spiritual master an ordinary motorcar, it would not be sufficient, because the spiritual master has to be treated like God. If God comes to your home, will you bring Him an ordinary motorcar - or will you arrange for a golden car? The book is a total mess.
My understanding of Hinduism and Bhagavad Gita is contradictory to the teachings of this book. The author stresses on few points all over the book. They are 1 The only way to reach God is to chant the mantra. These points are redundant all over thee book. The only good point I took from this book is "We live in a materialistic world.
We should get away from The book is a total mess. We should get away from it". View 2 comments. Aug 07, Shala rated it liked it. If he could have stopped being a sexist ass for one second I might have liked this book more.
I could resonate with much of what he said but he basically thinks women are twits that need a man to guide them. I yelled, "kiss my ass! Nov 29, Ciprian rated it really liked it Shelves: I love the strong, cutting, definitive tone of Prabhupada when he is making his points, even if his use of English might not be palatable for Westerners such as ourselves.
You can see that he is a devotee that has dedicated his life to his cause and, for amateur spiritualists such I myself, I of course cannot relate to his dedication, but I just kept an open mind, digested what I could at the time and left the rest to hang in suspense until further insights would come if ever Prabhupada, in I love the strong, cutting, definitive tone of Prabhupada when he is making his points, even if his use of English might not be palatable for Westerners such as ourselves.
Prabhupada, in his series of presentations, cuts right through all our wishy-washy, relativistic mentality about spirituality, in which we want to have our cakes and eat them too. We want to be spiritual, but we don't want to have to do to much with God, unless we come to believe that We are God, like some charlatan gurus try to flatter us, quoting partial understandings of Indian philosophy.
We don't want to DO anything for God and rationalize it by saying that he doesn't need anything, he's God, duh!
But then Prabhupada very nicely explains in the book how our senses, if not used in connection with spiritual purposes, will definitely used in materialistic ones, polutting our mind which in turn pollutes our soul. And doing stuff for God is not for his benefit, but for ours. Prabhupada, like in all his books, is giving it to us straight, and, although I was struck by some very strong statements, upon reflections I found truth in them, like the way we treat animals for instance.
I especially liked when he started a lecture given at MIT with the rhetorical question: Where is the department for the study of the soul? Not that takes some gall: After all, when you come from India to the West at something after suffering 2 heart attacks on the ship and have very little time to spread your message you'd want to get right down to it. Apr 12, Yash rated it really liked it. I really like how Prabhupada, always comes with a practical approach when trying to solve material problems such as the world hunger problem.
He also uses very strong vocabulary in his effort to explain how getting a spiritual master and obtaining a love for god can help you in the long run. What I like is that before he became a yogi,he was a chemist who had a small business and everything.
But when his business failed and all he had was taken away from him. He took shelter of a spiritual maste I really like how Prabhupada, always comes with a practical approach when trying to solve material problems such as the world hunger problem.
