Dharma or Religious Principles: Morality

                                                                  Q. If the same "detachment" perspective on moral values can be used both by the demon Kamsa (in justifying his killing of the sons of Devaki) and a divine avatar, it is hard to accept that such an approach could represent a true basis for morality. Is detachment a way to by-pass dharma/karma for a demon?

                                                                  Q. Why did Arjuna, a great devotee of the Lord approach Lord Indra a demigod for help? Does this not contradict the teachings of Srila Prabhupada that intelligent men worship only Krishna?

                                                                  Q. It is said that Buddha is one of the incarnations of Lord Krishna. If this is so, how is it that Buddha has proposed a totally different path for salvation rather than Bhakti Marga?

                                                                  Q. "In short, sinful activity cannot be brought under the purview of 'offering everything to Krishna.'" (Narada Bhakti Sutra 35)

                                                                  Could you please elaborate on the above? Because so many devotees say that whatever you do, you should offer it to Krishna. For example, suppose I am a software engineer, if I develop some software and it is used for something sinful in the first place, then how can I offer it to Krishna? But devotees recommend offering it.

                                                                  Q. Are we mis-interpreting our books by giving a physical form to the concept of Brahman, the supreme source of energy? Krishna and Rama are characters in a story written by ancient philosophers who wanted to bring some standards for living, stories written to explain the concept of good living. Are Hindus losing their scientific acumen by worshiping their texts instead of really understanding the concepts? Isn't it enough that I lead a good life, helping others, being honest?
