Hindu philosophy misunderstood: ISKCON chief

By Our Staff Reporter

VISAKHAPATNAM, MARCH 11. "There is no greater philosophy than Hindu philosophy, but unfortunately it is misunderstood and misinterpreted by most," the head of the world headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in India, Tridandi Goswami Jayapataka Swami, told reporters here on Thursday.

He said Hindu philosophy was much more than science. It had answers to all unanswered questions irrespective of the faculty hidden in its ancient literature like the Vedas, Bhagvad Gita and the Upanishads. One had to read and interpret them in the right sense.

The ISKCON chief also plans to tour Rajahmundry, Vijayawada and Tirupati, a few places in Karnataka and Puri. He said an ISKCON temple would be coming up shortly in Rajahmundry on a three-acre land given by the Government, `bhoomi puja' for which was slated on Friday.
