The NFL
By Ram Prasad dasa

Dear Prabhus:

I don't think there's any question about whether or not it's spiritual to watch NFL football; rather, the question is what team you root for.

Obviously, devotees want the Rams (St. Louis) to kill the Ravens (Baltimore).

The following devotees responded to the controversial "Sports" article by Danavir Maharaja posted on CHAKRA. Click on a name to read the response.

Manjari dd
Panca-tattva
Anandini dd
Dharma das
Madhava Gosh das
Sadhusanga das
Prananatha das
Atma-nivedana das
Janaki-Rama das
Krsna-chitra dasa
Madhava Gosh dasa
Gaurav Mittal
Krishna Seva dasa
Ram Prasad dasa
Bhojadeva dasa

And, I don't see what's wrong with rooting for the Saints (New Orleans) or the Colts (Indianapolis).

Conversely, rooting for the Titans (Tennessee), or those who overthrew the demigods, would be Maya.

It also doesn't seem right to root for the Jets (NY) or the Steelers (Pittsburgh), since that's ugra-karma, but rooting for the Cowboys (Dallas) seems to be appropriate.

You have to watch out for the teams with animal names--the Bears, Lions, Panthers, Jaguars, Falcons, Broncos, Dolphins, and Eagles -- rooting for them could put you into animal consciousness. I left out the Bengals because I think it's all right to root for them since Prabhupada and Lord Chaitanya are Bengals.

I have a couple of friends named Jayanta, so I think I'll root for the Giants (NY) today.

Haribol, see you at the Sunday Feast.

Ram Prasad
