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.
2. Power of Ginger and Cow's Milk
Now we shall hear further.
3. No Medicine is the Best Medicine:
Maharaj: We are completely blind to the facts and because we are blind, the result is bodily pains and diseases are increasing. And there is no solution. They don’t have any medicines. They don’t have medicines. No disease has (indistinct) medicine. They just concoct that this maybe the disease and this be maybe the medicine. This 'may be' is there. Even though, the greatest doctor, big famous doctor, he also does not understand. Diagnosis is not there and because incorrect diagnosis is there, how can the correct medicine be there? He concocts, that this maybe the disease. So then again 'may be' the medicine. And we think that, 'I have paid doctor so much sum, he is very highly educated cardiologist from this and that.' They don’t understand.
(Referring to nurse's reaction on seeing Maharaj's cardiogram, Maharaj says) My heart’s cardiogram came and you were there and she jumped. Isn’t it? And then the result came to the doctor’s hand. He said, "Since your heart is good, but some wrong somewhere." I told, "She jumped (upon seeing the cardiogram results)." (Doctor replied) "No, no. she didn’t understand." What do you mean she doesn’t? She is seeing daily may be thousands of hearts. So why should she jump? It was not rasa dance (laughs). She jumped. And it (the result) was quite alright. So she was surprised that why I was sent there.
And as soon as doctors came, I told them, "Everything is alright, you are checking everything. So even then I am suffering (something is wrong)" Then I told them that I need some place to sit, time will definitely recover the body. The doctor concocted. He said, "Your heart may be having water. So we will give you the pinch for removing the water." (Then Maharaj said refering to his son) Shyam was very adamant that, "You should take medicine." I told, "They are concocting. They don’t know whether water is there or not." Man, heart has to have the water. Isn’t it? What is new that it doesn’t have water. Nothing is new in it. Man, I am drinking water. Whole body has the water. Heart also has millions of cells which have water. So what is new that they told and why the medicine should be there? "Your heart has water." Arey, man, water is going to be there. Without water, how the heart can function?
Devotee: 70% of our body has water.
Maharaj: That you know. (laughter) The dull man also knows, 70% of body has water. How our heart have no water? 'Your heart has water.' And maybe it is the excess water, maybe." "I agree, maybe", means "this medicine maybe help you," Again may. It’s nothing definite and we like mad persons take this, take this and that and destroy our cells. There is no water, but the tablets will create the water there. So, no medicine is the best medicine, is the way, because nobody knows.
Devotee: What to do ?
Maharaj: Our vaidyas were very sane. They will just put their fingers on our pulse and they feel the pulse. And they say "Alright, what is the trouble?" “I have headache”, "All right, take this with peda." Medicine with sweet, he will give. When we want to eat sweet, then we go to the Vaidyaraj. And we will cry before the mother. So mother says, "Go, and tell uncle (Vaidya) that you have headache." So we immediately run. I was the first in the line there (laughs). He said, "Why have you come?" (mimmicks) "Oh, I have a severe headache", and he looks to the pulse, "Alright. Two days, you take this in sweet." But I was not satisfied in two days. "No, no, headache is very severe" (laughs). "Alright, you take it for seven days." I was very happy. Because seven days sweet will be there. This was the system. No 'maybe', 'maybe nothing'.
Devotee: Maharaj, in Japan, there was strike of all the doctors for salary. For one week they didn’t work!! (indistinct) For that period, rate of death decreased (laughs).
Maharaj: You are doctor, telling these things. Man this is a fact. Once, there was, in London, Oxford street, there is a big Middlesex hospital nearly 1000 beds are there and by the side of the hospital, there is a cemetery. So there was once, nurses strike there. So nobody was admitted to the hospital. They were sent out. So the cemetery man was really fed up. He said, "What is this? This hospital is closed. Nobody dies (laughter). Otherwise, every day", he said that, "there is a queue here." So I don’t know, whether the hospital is for forcing them to die or to cure. The fact is, all this modern advancement, they are very expert in killing and not curing. Doctors means, he must have machine, x-ray, cardiogram, this gram, that gram, every gram except our channa gram (laughter)
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,
Swarnangi devi dasi
