    Don't Miss this Bumper Prize

    Kapila Muni is so merciful that He has given such simple ways for us to practice devotional service and perfect our lives even though we are the most fallen living entities of this most degraded age of kali. Actually this is like a bumper prize for us, which 100% we don't deserve at all. Just like we are so careful to utilize the best available opportunity to earn and save wealth in our life when the market is good, we should also take full advantage of this simple process.

    One should not be puffed up because he is entrusted with certain executive work. Fortunate is he who is so entrusted, and if he is always fixed in the sense of being subordinate to the will of the Supreme, he is sure to come out successful in the discharge of his work Anyone who takes pride in doing responsible work but does not give credit to the Supreme Lord is certainly falsely proud and cannot execute anything nicely

    .Maharaj emphasises that material sound vibrations always create disturbance and spiritual sound vibrations are meant to create peace. This is because this sound vibration helps us to revive our dormant consciousness

    Feeling Permanence In This Temporary World

    Kalacakra Krsna das
    Permanency feeling is always there. But every page of Bhagavatam teaches us the temporary nature of this material existence. We only waste our time looking at others - 'Oh - He is very much attracted to illusory energy - but I am not.'  Reality is we are more attracted to illusory energy. Never compare or find faults with others. You do your sadhana individually.

    Krishna is the only supreme truth to whom we can surrender. This is completely stamped. It is decided for us that Krishna is the only one who can give some benediction to us. In the whole of the material and spiritual manifestation, He is the only supreme autocrat. We have to surrender to Him

    Purified Intelligence

    Vaijayanthimala devi dasi
    Everything animate or inanimate helplessly follows the order of Krishna. This buddhi is visuddha buddhi or purified intelligence. Those who understand this transcendental fact of the full control of the Supreme Personality of Godhead are not stuck anywhere in the material world because in any situation they think that it is under the control of Krishna. If He wants, what can we do? That is how we are completely out of anxiety – out of petty differences. That is the purpose of Bhagavatam- to clear our intelligence.

    We all know the story of Ajamila that although Ajamila was referring to the small child and not to the original Narayana, the name of Narayana is so powerful that even by chanting his son’s name he was becoming purified. Although calling for his son, he was unknowingly chanting the name of Narayana, and the holy name of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is so transcendentally powerful that his chanting was counted and recorded.

As far as happiness derived from sense enjoyment is concerned, it can be obtained automatically in course of time, just as in course of time we obtain miseries even though we do not desire them."

    Maharaj was emphasizing on the word "ikshanam" in this verse which Srila Prabhupada translates as "audience". Maharaj explained in detail how this specific word has been chosen in this verse instead of the normal usage of the word "pashya" which means "to see". Maharaj said that "pashya" means seeing from a material point of view whereas "ikshanam" means "seeing beyond" or perceiving. Maharaj revealed the essence behind Srila Prabhupada's translation of this word as "audience".

    Srimad Bhagavatam gives us the real opulence and in the midst of miseries also, we are seeing Krishna and we are not worried. It makes us accept the facts of life. We have our foundation very strong. That foundation does not allow us to quit Prabhupada and roam here and there. As soon as you commit that offence of quitting prabhupada, even Krishna will not tolerate and it is the bankruptcy of our devotional service.

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead is certainly not known to everyone, but He is very powerful and influential. Therefore, although the serpent of eternal time, which is fearful in force, endlessly chases everyone, ready to swallow him, if one who fears this serpent seeks shelter of the Lord, the Lord gives him protection, for even death runs away in fear of the Lord. I therefore surrender unto Him, the great and powerful supreme authority who is the actual shelter of everyone.

    Within the material world, one’s material body is always subject to birth and decay. Similarly, the life air [praana] is harassed by hunger and thirst, the mind is always anxious, the intelligence hankers for that which cannot be obtained, and all of the senses are ultimately exhausted by constant struggle in the material nature. A person who is not bewildered by the inevitable miseries of material existence, and who remains aloof from them simply by remembering the lotus feet of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is to be considered bhaagavata-pradhaana, the foremost devotee of the Lord

    He does not speak of anything but the topics about Krishna; therefore he is called silent. Silent does not mean that one should not speak; silent means that one should not speak nonsense. One should speak only of essentials, and the most essential speech for the devotee is to speak for the sake of the Supreme Lord.
