Why accept someone else's opinion?
You do it all the time. In fact, you don't have so much as one single
independent thought floating around in that meat-head of yours. If you
didn't have TV, newspapers and magazines to tell you what to think and
believe, you'd be in deep shit.

I guess lazy or tired are two possibilities... any other suggestions?
Krishna is without a doubt the best version of the Supreme. The Vedic
Version of God is the oldest and most thoroughly documented version of
God available on the planet.
Hare Krishna offers the most original, consistent, comprehensive,
systematic, ingenious, advanced and detailed system of knowledge to
explain the world we live in. Note, I'm not expressing an opinion
here. It is an indisputable fact, verifiable by anyone who takes time
to investigate it with an open mind. There are no philosophical,
existential, social, religious, meta-physical or theological questions
in the world, that are not answered in depth in the Vedic tradition
followed by Hare Krishna.
Jiva Goswami, a Hare Krsna from the 1500s, had this to say about
understanding God - the first thing you have to understand, to know
God - Krishna, is to understand that He is inconceivable.
Krishna is as far away from the materially conditioned mind of modern
man, as a computer is from, say, George Washington. You don't have the
slightest way of understanding God before and unless you accept that
God is inconceivable, that He can act in mysterious, inconceivable
ways. To maintain that every experience - the sum total of reality,
can be expressed entirely in physical, scientific terms is just so
amazingly dumb that it's a great wonder, most educated and so-called
intelligent people buy into it. What it shows is that the modern
propaganda machine is very effective, indeed.
The prapaganda-machine conditions and indoctrinates everyone into
thinking that the present Coca-cola civilization is the pinnacle of
all human knowledge and progress. Everyone is brainwashed into the
idea that they are the enjoyers, and that they can be happy by
gratifying their bodily senses. In fact, there are no other goals in
the global culture except getting an education in order to get a job
to make money so you can spend it. There is nothing beyond that. How
hopeless is that? It may seem OK for the successful people, who due to
good karma are getting their desires fulfilled, but for the vast
scores of people who live in poverty and suffering, how is it
beneficial to tell them that this life is the only chance you'll ever
get to have your desires fulfilled? After that - nothing. It's a
depressing world-view that conditions one to a life in misery and
My dear Arjuna, because you are never envious of Me, I shall impart to
you this most confidential knowledge and realization, knowing which
you shall be relieved of the miseries of material existence. (Bg. 9.1)
This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all
secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct
perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of
religion. It is everlasting, and it is joyfully performed. (Bg. 9.2)
Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My
transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be. (Bg 9.11)
Those who are thus bewildered are attracted by demonic and atheistic
views. In that deluded condition, their hopes for liberation, their
fruitive activities, and their culture of knowledge are all defeated.
(Bg 9.12 )
