We are Puppets of Krishna - Part 2

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

This is in continuation of the transcription of one of the nectarean classes given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.6.7 in Rajkot on February 1st 2009. In the previous offering we heard the below point from Maharaj.

1. Everything is alright.

Now we shall see further.

2. Contaminated intelligence leads to anxiety:

Maharaj: fāvse, gamse, chālse, In Gujarati three words are there. fāvse, gamse, chālse. fāvse means - "for me everything is good" fāvse, gamse - "I like everything",  chālse - "everything I feel is alright." This is the way. That is viśuddha buddhi , otherwise buddhi is contaminated. If you don’t have this type of intelligence, depending on this verse īśasya hi vaśe loko, yoṣā dārumayī yathā. Any other buddhi is contaminated. And contaminated buddhi will unnecessarily cause anxiety to us. That is nature of contaminated intelligence. Contaminated intelligence means personified anxiety. Anxiety. And the whole world including us, we are just completely misled, misdirected you know regarding these things. The more and more contamination is there day after day. Nobody tries to purify it. Contamination, we increase and that’s why the anxiety never leaves us. And as soon as the anxiety has a grip on our whole being, our being gets diseased. Our body gets diseased. The anxiety has taken grip over this.

Whatever we are doing here I don’t know, but at least to some extent we are out of anxiety. And because we are out of anxiety our sleep is unbroken. Our behaviour is not that fanatic you know. We are not running after anything, or we are not doing anything. Nothing is done during here. That is the way that we are becoming anxiety free. Whatever little we can put into practice, the immediate result is there, immediate. You, you may stop the material activities. Please, don’t do anything, just read Bhagavatam, read Bhagavad Gita. Don’t do anything else. Somehow or the other, 12’o’clock… something will come in front of you. If it doesn’t come, so much has already come. So it doesn’t matter.

Please, somehow or the other we have to come to this viśuddha buddhi. Otherwise the contaminated intelligence create the hell for all the living entities around us. And buddhi is always contaminated in general. So the hell is let loose. Since this hell is let loose, we have to be clear, we have to steer clear. Every living entity, knowingly or unknowingly, will try to harm the other living entity. Because the buddhi is contaminated. And particularly we harm the living entities more when there is no opposition. Where there is no opposition, we harm more. This is our tendency. Mother has, mother can’t oppose you. As it is she is getting to her age or whatever, she cannot do anything. So we are very angry at her, don’t care for her. The living entity, by whose causeless mercy you have seen the sunlight and then you say, "hai, she is trash." No, this is not the viśuddha buddhi. This buddhi is highly contaminated buddhi. And as soon as you disrespect that pious living entity, you are going to be covered by the innumerable anxieties. By their blessings your life becomes sublime. And whether you serve them or not, parents, they will bless you. But those who serve, they get special blessings. So, service must be there.

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,
Vaikunthanath Krishna das
