| Eight Points of Krishna Conscious Philosophy
of the Hare Krsna movement (a monotheistic tradition) is summarized in the following eight
1. By sincerely
cultivating the authentic spiritual science presented in the Bhagavad-gita and other Vedic
scriptures, we can become free from anxiety and achieve a state of pure, unending,
2. Each of us is not
the material body but an eternal spirit soul, part and parcel of God (Krsna). As such, we
are all the eternal servants of Krsna and are interrelated through Him, our common father.
3. Krsna is the
eternal, all-knowing, omnipresent, all-powerful, and all-attractive Personality of
Godhead. He is the seed-giving father of all living beings and the sustaining energy of
the universe. He is the source of all incarnations of God, including Lord Buddha and Lord
4. The Vedas are the
oldest scriptures in the world. The essence of the Vedas is found in the Bhagavad-gita, a
literal record of Krsna's words spoken five thousands years ago in India. The goal of
Vedic knowledge-and of all religions-is to achieve love of God.
5. We can perfectly
understand the knowledge of self-realization through the instructions of a genuine
spiritual master-one who is free from selfish motives, who teaches the science of God
explained in the Bhagavad-gita, and whose mind is firmly fixed in meditation on Krsna.
6. All that we eat
should first be offered to Lord Krsna with a prayer. In this way Krsna accepts the
offering and blesses it for our purification.
7. Rather than living
in a self-centered way, we should act for the pleasure of Lord Krsna. This is known as
bhakti-yoga, the science of devotional service.
8. The most effective
means for achieving God consciousness in this Age of Kali, or quarrel, is to chant the
holy names of the Lord: Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare
Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
