Nectar from Maharaj's Diary - Part 1

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

Today we would like to share a few nectarean points we collected from our spiritual master H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj's diary. 

1. Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur states that a Vaishnava exists eternally packed up with the Lord in transcendental sound vibration.

He reasons ill who tells that Vaishnava die
When thou art living still in sound!
The Vaishnava die to live, and living try
To spread the Holy name around!

2. A beautiful verse from the shastras:

तार्केषु कर्कशधियो वयमेव यावत्
साहित्ये कोमलधियो वयमेव यावत्
तांत्रे निरन्तरधियो वयमेव यावत्
कृष्णे निवेशितधियो वयमेव तावत्

taarkeshu karkasha dhiyo vayameya yaavat
sahitye komala dhiyo vayameva yaavat
tantre nirantara dhiyo vayameva yaavat
krishne niveshita dhiyo vayameva taavat

Only when our minds are absorbed in Krishna, do we have unsparing thoughts in arguments, sensitive thoughts in literature and incessant thoughts on our duties.

3. Maharaj has written the verse Srimad Bhagavatam 1.5.32, word-word meaning and translation in his diary and then he has written a few important lines from the purport with the remark "important to refer": It does not matter what one is...If one is administrator, statesman, warrior, politician etc..then one should try to establish the Lord's supremacy in statesmanship...if one is a businessman, an industrialist, an agriculturalist etc. then one should spend his money for the cause of the Lord. 

Then Maharaj has written the following words as his comments: 
Comments: We, in Krishna consciousness, have to show how to solve problems by actually solving them in ISKCON and by sharing our solutions with the world. We have to show, "Why things fail without Krishna" by ourselves not failing and by ourselves never being without Krishna. And this work is to be carried out by every Krishna conscious devotee, not only by a few leaders or few writers.

4. "Any living entity who lives only to satisfy the Lord is a demigod." - Krishna Book, 1st Chapter, "Advent of Lord Krishna". 

5. Goethe: "Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it....begin it now." [We have practically seen how Maharaj was so bold in everything he did and he has practically lived this statement].

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Kalacakra Krsna das
