Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.
This is in conclusion of the transcription of the class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 2 Chapter 8 verse 4 in Rajkot on 05 December 2008. In the previous offering, we heard Maharaj as to how we suffer because of seeing duality and failing to see that everything belongs to Krishna. Now we shall hear further.
Devotee: Maharaj, saṁsṛtir bandhaḥ, yesterday we did this Maharaj,
tad asya saṁsṛtir bandhaḥ pāra-tantryaṁ ca tat-kṛtam
bhavaty akartur īśasya sākṣiṇo nirvṛtātmanaḥ
Material consciousness is the cause of one's conditional life, in which conditions are enforced upon the living entity by the material energy.
Maharaj: This is the fact, What is the number?
Devotee: This is 3.26.7 Maharaj
Maharaj: This is a nice verse. Go through Bhagavatam Please. And go through atleast the verses which we are done. Everything is there. Very nice selection is it.
Devotee: Maharaj, which one is that? you were saying pareshanubhavam, is that the same one that you gave us?
Maharaj: bhaktiḥ pareśānubhavo viraktir, SB.11.2.42,
bhaktiḥ pareśānubhavo viraktir
anyatra caiṣa trika eka-kālaḥ
prapadyamānasya yathāśnataḥ syus
tuṣṭiḥ puṣṭiḥ kṣud-apāyo ’nu-ghāsam
Devotion, direct experience of the Supreme Lord, and detachment from other things — these three occur simultaneously for one who has taken shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, in the same way that pleasure, nourishment and relief from hunger come simultaneously and increasingly, with each bite, for a person engaged in eating.
Our heartfelt thanks to Maharaj for his sublime and instructive class on the ways in which we can experience Krishna and particularly the importance of leading a regulated life.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Divyarupa devi dasi
