Simple Devotion - Part 11

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

This is in conclusion of the transcription of Bhagavatam class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj in London. In previous offerings Maharaj was explaining,

1. The importance of studying Srimad Bhagavatam by explaining the SB 12.13.18 verse.
2. About the wonderful senses - the eyes and ears which are helping us to recite the verses.  
3. How he personally regained his lost speech, simply by chanting.

Now we shall hear further.

The pronunciation of the verses should be very clear and it should go right to your heart. This is relates directly to your heart. The classical music in which we sing these verses, relates to your heart. All other material talk deal with our mind. But these spiritual vibrations touch the heart. Just like how we feel relieved when we have darshan of the Deity of the Lord, when we chant these transcendental vibrations, when we chant Gita we can experience the same thing. So when we engage in devotional service of any form, chanting or kirtan or hearing about Krishna, immediately it relates to our heart. Other things bother our mind. If we don't understand these things, and waste this human life then we are foolish of the highest order. We may be murakh, foolish - but we should be limited in foolishness also - murakh limited (laughter), just like how we have Barclays Limited, we can be murakh limited. +Please don't be unlimited murakh. That's why these verses have to be sung daily in a very palatable way. For example we have Bhishma's prayers which can be sung nicely in 'namāmīśvaram' tune. 

In Gita Krishna says 'hṛd-deśe ’rjuna tiṣṭhati '- 'Arjuna, I am situated in every one's heart'. So He hears when we sing. So please recite shlokas daily -12th and 15th Chapter of Gita, at least one chapter from Gita or at least one verse. There is so much to be told, but we are controlled by time. So we stop here. Hare Krishna. Jai Srila Prabhupada ki Jai!"

Our heartfelt thanks to Maharaj for his practical and sublime class explaining us the importance of Bhagavatam, and the proper usage of wonderful senses eyes and ears which Krishna has bestowed us. 

Hare Krishna.

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