Everything Auspicious is Krishna - Part 2

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

This is in continuation of the previous offering titled, "Everything Auspicious is Krishna" - which is transcription of one of the nectarean class of our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.14.10 in Rajkot. In the previous offering Maharaj explained 

1. Touch of Krishna helps us to do our duties nicely. 

Now we shall hear further.

2. Power of Ginger and Cow's Milk
Maharaj: The thing is that unless the remedy is same, it applies everywhere. You know this ginger in Sanskrit, in medical books, in our Sanskrit books, it is known as vishva-bheshaja. Vishva-bheshaja means, the medicine for the whole of universe. So any ailment and ginger will work. So anything, so any disturbance, any inauspicious that you see around, and we should inspect ourselves, whether we are in touch with Krishna or not. Touch of  Krishna will remove all the difficulties, like ginger. Krishna has given one medicine only and that is vishva-bheshaja. That is known in Sanskrit. This, Germany people, Germany ayurvedic doctors, they come here and they told in India, that ginger is vishva-bheshaja - universal medicine and we want to bring that medicine from Germany to this place. Please, this is how. This one medicine works everywhere and this one touch with Krishna works everywhere. That is the point. He quotes that verse Bhagavad Gita verse 7.14

daivī hy eṣā guṇa-mayī mama māyā duratyayā 
mām eva ye prapadyante māyām etāḿ taranti te

Insurmountable, you cannot conquer. mām eva ye prapadyante māyām etāḿ taranti te. This advancement is all māyā. It is not required, but we are just running after it. And now our societies, houses and malls are so very adjusted, to this long driving. Formerly, no one was staying in Kalawad road. Yagnik road was also clean. The original Rajkot is very small. These are all farming lands around. Now on Yagnik road, if you want to buy one square foot of land, you require Rs 50000 for one square foot. And here also, when we came, it was square yard, Rs 600 per square yards. And now it is Rs 4000 square yards. And day by day it is increasing. And there is no production. Land is there, but there is no production. The value is going up. It is all modern advancement.

Cows - this land belongs to cows, they were roaming out here very freely. This belongs to dogs, they are also moving freely. It belongs to snakes, they are also getting nourished. But now we have acquired. So occasionally we see snakes and kill it. Cows are also killed. In big cities, cows are not moving at all. No cows, that is our advancement (indistinct). Again celestial influence or the disturbances and bodily pains etc... Milk is not available. So bodily pains are increasing. Just cow’s milk is full food. But that is not available. And what to talk of, if it is available, it is illusion again that at Ramkripa (name of some shop in Rajkot) you can go and buy cow’s milk. No. It looks like milk, but it is not milk. Because cow’s milk, its speciality is that it should be drunk within 15 minutes after milking the cow. It is known as dhaaroshya because of that milk coming out, it is warm. From the body of the cow, that warm milk should be drunk. Then it is lost. As soon as you process the milk, it's lost and after half an hour, milk is not milk. Looks like milk. And no milk is available within half an hour. See our condition. That is why formerly, every house has a cow ready and we boys were standing in a queue when the cow was being milked. See, as soon as it is milked we drink.

Devotee: Directly Maharaj?

Maharaj: No, not directly, somebody was milking and pouring in our glasses.

Devotee: Without heating?

Maharaj: Without heating. No, no we didn’t know that it has to be boiled, it is warm.

Devotee: (indistinct) Now we get skimmed milk.

Maharaj: And (now) it is skimmed, modern advancement. Then again bodily trouble and pains are there. We have completely destroyed ourselves and we want white colour, that’s it. That is milk.

Devotee: Powdered milk.

Maharaj: May be we get powder from America, and it is mixed in Bombay and nice bags are available. People pay Rs 20 per bag and that is American milk. Arre man, it cannot be American milk at all (laughs). Modern advancement, dry powder comes, don’t know from where, whether it is cow powder or goat powder or camel powder, that we don’t know, everything is mixed, and that is sent from America. Oh beautiful, American, everything is beautiful, this is how we are completely blind to the facts and because we are blind, the result is bodily pains and diseases are increasing.

Krishna willing we shall continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offerings.

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