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 from Maharaj about the different energies of Krishna and how nature's cure is the best for us . Now we shall hear further.
Devotee: Allopathy is the creation of the misdirective civilization?
Maharaj: Really, but now, sometimes it is useful you know. Particularly when the fractures are there, they can repair with the clip or something. they can have operation with something. Otherwise, before these things were there? People had fractures, and automatically they cured. But now we want everything instant. So some things are good. But the thing is, the best thing is to go to the root of the body. Root of the body is 3, bhumi aapah tej. bhumi is there, earth is there. In any manufacture, these 3 elements are there. Bhumi aap and tej - fire, these 3 things are there. So these 3 things, if they can purify, then the bodies are alright. And apart from these 3 things, which are gross energy, superior energy, fine. So fine energy must have a free passage in the body, then there is no disease. And to cultivate this body, ginger is useful, cinnamon is useful and particularly for the air, the black salt is very useful. Black salt is the best medicine. That's all. Best medicine. It regulates your air. 2 types of airs we have.
Devotee: And what does honey do Maharaj?
Maharaj: Honey clears the body. Yes, read further.
Devotee: (from Purport of SB 1.8.9) - "In the dual world everyone is falsely trying to become the master of the world, whereas in the absolute world the Lord is the absolute Lord, and all others are His absolute servitors. In the world of duality everyone is envious of all others, and death is inevitable due to the dual existence of matter and spirit. The Lord is the only shelter of fearlessness for the surrendered soul. One cannot save himself from the cruel hands of death in the material world without having surrendered himself at the lotus feet of the Lord."
Maharaj: This is very short, very clear you know. First He has given the duality. And we saw, in duality also, there is oneness. There is no duality. That is knowledge. Because we have bit of knowledge, Prabhupada's mercy. That's why we saw oneness. We don’t think that earth is earth. We thing it is the energy. That's why we pay obeisances to earth, before we sit, or we do anything. This how our worship is going on. So we don’t think that anything else is there. - 'mattaḥ parataraṁ nānyat kiñcid asti dhanañ-jaya' - That is the conclusion. Then second half, ignorance, out of ignorance, we try to master the duality. Material things, we try to master that, "This piece of land is mine. This building is mine. Frankly speaking, nothing."
Krishna willing we shall hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Divyarupa devi dasi
