Transcendental Pills - Part 4

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

This is in continuation of the topic, "Transcendental Pills" which is transcription of Bhagavatam class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj, 

1) The importance of taking the transcendental pill in the form of hearing the glories of Supreme Lord. 
2) The qualities of the soul as described in Gita and Bhagavatam.

Now we shall hear further.

If you take these material possessions minus God, then it is all zero. No value at all. Everything belongs to God. That is why it is very beautiful to understand these verses and try to take permanent lessons from them. Otherwise our life is completely useless. As it is without God, we are suffering a lot. The invalidity goes away as soon as you remember Lord and if you daily remember God, then in old age also, you will be young. That is the beauty of it. That is why our saints and sages, guru and scriptures are not wrong. They are very correct and if you follow them sincerely, you will have definite results. You will not require the doctors, you will not be frustrated. You will not feel alone. This is the medicine for the lone moments. Those people who cannot tolerate the lone moments, they are never satisfied. They are always frustrated. And because of this frustration our health goes bad. We don't know that there is a relationship between the frustration and our own well-being. We don't know that and that is why we are just wandering about in the world without any anchor. If the ship does not have any proper anchor, it will go on any way. The anchor must be there and that is remembering God. We must always be connected to God. Otherwise we are just moving according to the winds of life. As soon as the wind blows ship goes in that direction. Without anchor, there is no use. As soon as the ship has an anchor, however hard the storm may blow, then it won't move at all. It will be completely fixed in one place.

This is the most important thing - to understand about the soul, to understand about the God. If you understand, then only you can love God. Just like in marriage, when you know the person, activities - then you love. Without knowing the person how can you love? It is impossible. Without these scriptures, we cannot do anything. This is a very simple thing. If you want to love a person, you must know about them. If you want to love God, you must know about God. Knowing about God through the scriptures is perfection of our life because that will lead you to eventual devotional service. Devotional service will cure all your diseases. Not only that, but in any situation it will give nice looking body - It doesn't matter whether you are young or old. This is the medicine for eternal youth. 

Krishna willing we shall hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

Today is the auspicious occasion of Sri Rama Navami - the appearance day of Lord Sri Sitarama. Our prayers at the lotus feet of Sri Sri SitaRama Lakshman Hanumanji that we always remember Him and be connected to Him.

Hare Krishna. 

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