Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.
This is in continuation of the previous offering titled, "Sense Gratification Leads to Destruction" which is transcription of one of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 5.13.19 in Sri Sri Radha NeelMadhav dham, Rajkot on 6th August 2008. In the previous offering we heard the below point.
1. Our attraction to sense gratification.
2. Sense Gratification steals our intelligence.
3. The nasty whirlpool of material existence
4. Sense Gratification is not permanent.
5. Give the taste of Krishna consciousness to children.
Now we shall hear further.
6. Propagate Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavatam:
Gurudev: So this is how this things have got to be propagated. And before we propagate we should think about it, we should be clear. We have done two, three verses, and nice verses are there in Raghugan (referring to 13th chapter of 5th canto of Srimad Bhagavatam), and there are eighteen thousand verses and so many, much more better verses are there. So please try to concentrate. We leave you to prepare you know, Jai! Srila Prabhupada ki
Devotees: Jai!!! Srila Gurudev ki Jai !
Gurudev: Any questions son?
Devotee: In this translation (SB 5.13.19) Jada Bharat is telling Rahugana, "if the conditioned soul somehow or other gets out of his dangerous position, he again returns to his home." - This line is very interesting Maharaj as to how one may go to pilgrim places - like a vulture flying very high - but still if focus is not there - we go back to the modes.
Gurudev: And everyone of us will do that. Because we don't have touch of these things. Only in Indian families some traditions were there. So they may think in the later stage. But then because of the ill health and all our material conditions, they become lunatics in old age. That is the thing. Or we have come as lunatics.(Gurudev laughs) Because we don't fit into their cultural position. Cultural lag - it is known as cultural lag. But if you stick to Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita there is no cultural lag. This is above the lag. It's always same, human values don't change. Everything changes. And values, because it is coming from Kṛṣṇa, they never change. They are same. All the time, they are same. You can go on thinking about it and propagating it. And the more older you are the more you will be respected in this position. In the material world you are not respected. And the less you speak, you will be respected more. If you go on yup, yup, yup, yup, then children will reject you really. They will definitely reject.
Krishna willing we will continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Krishnarati devi dasi
