1) a poison giver
2)one who sets fire to the house 3) one who attacks with deadly weapons 4) one who plunders riches, 5) one who occupies another's land, and 6) one who kidnaps a wife.
Such aggressors are at once to be killed, and no sin is incurred by killing such aggressors....... For example, Lord Rama was so saintly that people were anxious to live in his kingdom.(Rama-rajya) but Lord Rama never showed any cowardice. Ravana was an aggressor against Rama because he kidnapped Rama's wife, Sita,, but Lord Rama gave him sufficient lessons , unparalleled in the history of the world.

"People who are averse to Hari are naturally inclined to oppose the devotees of the Supreme Lord and are always intoxicated by their unethical, barbarian activities. The scriptural recommendation for dealing with them is pasunam lagudo yatha, or "the stick is the best remedy for taming animals." When the atheists are not checked, their animalistic propensities increase more and more so that they behave with Vaishnavas just like animals. It is not advisable for a Vaishnava to show indifference to the atheists on the plea of being simple-minded. This indifferent attitude encourages atheism. If, at any time of an attack on a Vaishnava, one keeps quiet like a gentleman, he has to face maya's punishment."

~Therefore I will be to them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them: I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her cubs, and will tear the fat of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.~

Radhagovindas Amit Raajput courtesy;
HDG A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada said;

"We should never sit idly and ask Krishna to do everything. That is the teachings of the Bhagavad-gita. It is clearly said in the Gita: "Yuddhasya ca mam anusmara [Bg. 8.7].'' So ordinarily, we have to try our best to our best capacity to achieve something, and by Krishna's Grace, all of a sudden we shall see everything is there. This sort of help from Krishna is transcendental happiness. "

Sambhu Das quotes Srila Prabhupada;

"The first teaching of Bhagavad-gita should be taken by the persons who are going to be elected in the government service. The public should be aware of this. If somebody comes to canvass for votes, you should first inquire, “Have you have read Bhagavad-gita? Mahatma Gandhi read Bhagavad-gita. Why shouldn’t you? Do you know what is Bhagavad-gita? If so, then I will give you my vote. Otherwise, get out.”… It is a great necessity that government men must study Bhagavad-gita. Otherwise, don’t give them vote."

(Lecture in Bombay, 22 March 1974)

Similar To Morphine: The Best Natural Painkiller that Grows in your Backyard. November 8, 2017 - by jani123-admin - Leave a CommentPeople have used wild lettuce as a sedative and painkiller for millennia. This plant is similar to thistle and dandelion, but it has potent properties which can replace synthetic painkillers. Namely, it has been used as an opium replacement since the 19th century, when it was known as “poor man’s opium. Even nowadays, the distilled water from this plant is used as a…See More

Kali's agents expertly introduced karma, jnana, and anyabhilasa in the Vaisnava sampradaya

"After the time of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, those faithful to Him kept apart from nondevotees, to avoid contamination. Seeing this, the personality of Kali sent his representatives in disguise to pollute the Vaisnava sampradaya. Posing as Vaisnavas, they spread their wicked doctrines, and appeared so intelligent and devoted that only pure devotees could detect their real identity. Most devotees -- not only the most neophyte – were enchanted by their tricks. In this way Kali's agents expertly…See More
