Attributes of Krishna: Supremely Independent Krishna

                                                                  Q. If Krishna can perform His hearing with His eyes, for example, then what is the purpose of His having eyes and also ears? Do jivas have the same capabilities?

                                                                  Q. Was it destined when I was born that I would one day become associated with ISKCON and do all these spiritual activities? If yes, then why do we preach? Won't people destined to join ISKCON join it, and those not destined to join ISKCON not join it? If no, then does it mean that joining ISKCON is outside the influence of destiny?

                                                                  Q. I was just going through the Bhagavatam and came across this section -- 8.7.21 to 8.7.35 where the Prajapatis glorify Lord Siva as being the Supreme. This was a bit disturbing to my mind because I used to think that there is no ambiguity in the Bhagavatam regarding who is Supreme. Similarly, when the trinity of Lord Brahma, Lord Siva, and Lord Vishnu appear before the father of Dattatreya, they say that all three of them are same.

                                                                  Q. In the Bhagavad-Gita, last verse of the second chapter, Krishna says that "... If one is thus situated even at the hour of death, one can enter into the kingdom of God". Also the purpose of all the practice that we do is to remember Krishna at the time of our final exam - The DEATH. Regarding Ajamila's deliverance, is his previous karma also involved in this or is it just purely because he chanted Krishna's name?

                                                                  Q. I was wondering if our spiritual relationships or relationships in general carry on to the next life or the spiritual world. Let's say my significant other and me have a loving relationship that is also in the realm of Krishna consciousness, does this mean that we will be always connected in some capacity in future lifetimes? What about brother, sister, mother, father or friends?
