A major nuclear accident is being termed as a nuclear meltdown in order to blur the understanding of the general public. This is a tactic used by cheaters, who use their skills of sophism to mislead the public. They make simple things difficult so that the common man may not understand. If they say in pure simple terms that a major accident has occurred, then their misdeeds and mistakes will come under public eye. However, if they term it as a nuclear meltdown, then people will think that it is something technical and thus being unable to understand it, they will not bother to think or discuss much about it. This is what they tried to do for the first three days thinking that they would be able to hush up the matter but unfortunately things have gone out of their control.
The accident in the nuclear power plant of Japan has resulted in major radiation leaks which will affect the health of millions of people in the region. This is all due to the so-called great thinkers of the modern world, the scientists who have caused this catastrophe due to their imperfect and deficient knowledge.
The sanskrit term for science is vijnana, which means vishisht jnana or special knowledge. Thus the knowledge that puts an end to all sufferings can be termed as real science. However, we find that the knowledge of the modern scientists is simply resulting in more and more sufferings and therefore it cannot be termed as real science.
Only Krishna consciousness can be termed as real science as it can put an end to all sufferings. The chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra can stop the sufferings of repeated death, old age and disease. Although the imperfect scientists cannot do this, but still they are very proud of their knowledge.
It is being said that electricity is in short supply and the only solution is nuclear power generation. “After all, electricity is essential and therefore nuclear power plants are required”, they aver. When I brought this to the knowledge of my mother, she countered it, “It will do, even if there is no electricity; at least people will not die due to lack of electricity. But these nuclear plants will result in un-timely deaths of so many people.”
Even if there are no accidents, they can be soft targets for the terrorists or even the insiders. Recently, a disgruntled scientist of a nuclear research center in Mumbai, vented out his displeasure with the management by planting radioactive material in the water cooler of the premises. His colleagues, who drank water from it, became sick.
Please note that such sickness is not benign like natural ailments since it can cause severe lifelong damage to the body.
It is mentioned in the Bhagavad gita (15.6) that the abode of Krishna is self-illumined and thus there is no need of electricity on His planet. The sun and the moon are also conspicuous by their absence in the spiritual sky. One who reaches the abode of Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, does not come back to this dark material sky.
Since the material world is dark, we need luminaries such as the sun and the moon as well as electricity. In the material sky, only the sun is self-illumined but in the spiritual sky, all the innumerable Vaikuntha planets are self-illuminated. Since there is no need of
electricity in Krishna’s abode, there would be no need of dangerous nuclear power plants. Therefore the Hare Krishna Revolution advises everyone to go back to the spiritual abode of Krishna in order to live an eternally blissful life, free from miseries such as birth, old age
