    The vice-chancellor of Benares University, a very famous man of his time, named Madan Mohan Molaviya came to the Gaudiya Matha to ask Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati (Spiritual Master of Srila Prabhupada) some very intricate questions.

    Sri Narada Muni plays on his instrument to glorify the transcendental activities of the Lord and to give relief to all miserable living entities of the universe.

    After all these verses were given by Gurudev, he said that each verse in Bhagavatam has the potency to purify our sinful existence the moment we hear and chant and study the verse.

    As Gurudev always puts 'devotional service is simple - we should not unnecessarily complete it.' Over the last few days he has shown us how straight forward the message of Bhagavatam is.

    When asked why this translation and verse had no purport, Gurudev replied because the translation had no room for ambiguity! Envy, subtle or gross will cause us to lose our advancement in bhakti immediately.

    My dear King, Bali Maharaj donated all his possessions to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vamanadeva, but should certainly not conclude that he achieved his great worldly opulence in bila-svaga as a result of his charitable disposition.

    There is no need to worship any deity but the Lord. The Lord is all-powerful, and if He is satisfied by ourobedience unto His lotus feet, He is competent to bestow upon us all kinds of blessings for the successful execution of both our material and spiritual lives.

    There is a wonderful Sloka in Queen KuntiDevi's prayers that Guru Maharaj often quotes. It has a very simple lyric, glorifies the Supreme Personality of Godhead very nicely and is very easy to remember Sri Krsna.

    Srimad Bhagavatam is known as Maha Purana - Purana means historical accounts. It does not mean mythology. Unfortunately because of our limited mind we cannot comprehend some things, which we then regard it as mythology.
