Title: Do Angels exist?
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-10-25 16:10:00
Question from Amiya Gauranga dasi: Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! my humble obeisances to the lotus feet to Shri Gurudeva Gaurangapada, Shri Gauranga Krishna and all the devotees.I was wondering if beings like angels exist? Lots of religous traditions seem to believe in them and some people refer to them as íspirit guidesí. I always thought this was just the Chaitya Guru within all souls and just the Lord helping you out when you need it most, but a lot of people seem to think that we all have guardian angels- are they for real?

† Answer by Krishna: "http:///"]Swami Gaurangapada: Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare [URL="http:///"! Jaya Guru Parampara! In the Vedas, there are two kinds of angelic beings, the material angelic beings called as the Demigods, Siddhas etc. who reside in the upper material planets in this universe and the spiritual angelic beings who are our the pure devotee Acharyas or the Eternal Associates of the Lord in the spiritual world. The material angelic beings help us by giving material benefits in return for the pious credits performed and the Acharyas, the spiritual angelic beings, help the soul (if the soul desires for it) in all ways especially spiritually to enter into the spiritual world where there is no birth, old age, disease and death.
