Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.
This is a humble effort to transcribe the class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.4 in Rajkot on 05 December 2008
śṛṇvataḥ śraddhayā nityaṁ gṛṇataś ca sva-ceṣṭitam
kālena nātidīrgheṇa bhagavān viśate hṛdi
Persons who hear Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam regularly and are always taking the matter very seriously will have the Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa manifested in their hearts within a short time.
"It’s very easy you know. viśate, you know, viśate – what is the equivalence for viśate? Becomes manifest, this becomes manifest, He is there already. Do you follow me? That is the speciality of Prabhupada’s equivalents. He gives correct idea you know. He was always telling that, “please let me have solitude, so I have to meditate on each word.” This is his meditation. Otherwise viśate means, “to enter”. But here he doesn’t give that meaning. He gives appropriate meaning - 'Manifest'.
So manifestation means, “He is already there.” “Sometimes He manifests, sometimes, unmanifests.” So this gives us the idea that the soul and Supersoul always exist in our heart. But only when the covering of the modes of material nature, vanishes and our life becomes pure. Most pure, you know. 100 % we cannot be, because we are body. But it should be purest. If it is pure, then Bhagavan manifests. He is already there. But then we can see Him. The only thing is we have to be away from the modes."
Krishna willing we shall continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Divya Rupa devi dasi
