    Everytime we go into the pages of Srimad Bhagavatam we are always reminded of our beloved Gurudev, H H Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj because he lived, breathed and survived on Srimad Bhagavatam. It was his life and soul and never he has forsaken it at any time. I was just going through one of the favourite verses of Maharaj in Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.6.26

    The parents are always worried about the younger generation, particularly considering the kali yuga atmosphere prevailing everywhere. At a certain stage, the children have to leave the protective shelter of their parents, either for their studies or employment etc. At that point it is very important that the younger generation remember the following wonderful instructions given by our beloved Guru Maharaj, in reply to a question by a devotee in Singapore.

    Those who have developed that eagerness, faith, that "I must see Krishna in this life..." This life is meant for seeing Krishna. It is not meant for becoming dogs and hogs. Unfortunately, the whole civilization is going on, they are being trained to become dogs and hogs

    It is said, 'shabdaadin vishayaams tyaktva'. Shabda means sound. Sound is a sense object. We enjoy the sound. Newly married couple, the husband enjoys the talking of the wife in the beginning at least. I do not know later what happens. But this is shabda. This is sound we enjoy. We enjoy bhajans - Transcendental sound.

    The point is we must purify our consciousness. We must know the existence of the soul and you have to go to the third chapter of Bhagavad Gita and therein in the last verses it is very nicely described how soul is the next door neighbor to our intelligence or buddhi.

    So long there will be a pinch of a desire for sense gratification, surely there will be fight between brother and brother, father and son, nation and nation and so on. The process of unity does not stand on the plane of enjoyment or renunciation, the real unity stands on the plane of service which is transcendental to all mundane enjoyments or renunciation. That is the plane of spirit.

    The feeling of 'being loved' actually gives us real happiness and confidence in life. It actually gives us the impetus to love that beloved more and more. It is not possible from a material perspective to keep loving someone who does not reciprocate in kind.

    Many a times we falsely think that our relatives will protect us, friends will protect us etc. But Narada Muni is giving us the reality of life. How much ever we are affectionate/loving to some-one, we all are dependent on Lord. We can not save our own selves. Then what to speak of protecting others ?

    An opulence of an individual is not measured by how many houses one has, how many cars one has, or by the count of family members and friends one has. It simply depends on how satisfied we are with whatever the Lord has blessed us with. But unfortunately most of the times we keep craving for things which we don't have and miss out to be happy and thankful for whatever we are blessed with.

    Just like how dust gets accumulated in our house on a daily basis, our mind is prone to so many anarthas. So much so we become spiritually blind and fail to see Krishna, who is very much present within our hearts. The above verse teaches us the simple and sublime method to purify ourselves.

    And it is said in the shastras that those who do not chant the holy names and fame of the Lord are considered dead bodies.Our spiritual master would say that without performing devotional service, our faces look like rotten bananas. If we perform devotional service our faces will become bubbly like water melon.

    In this material world we always struggle hard to find the fault of others, and we try to take revenge in one way or other. We never admit our mistakes and always point out others blaming the opponent for any issues faced by us. We encounter people who harm us, insult us, plot against us, whose action seem calculated to thwart the successful achievement of our goals.

    Prajapati Daksha, with an intention of insulting Lord Siva, fails to invite him to a sacrifice for which all the other demigods are invited. Due to maternal affection, Mother Sati goes to the sacrificial arena and when Daksha fails to welcome her properly, being insulted by his offensive attitude to Lord Siva, she quits her body.

    In Bhagavad Gita verse 5.22, Lord Krishna says ye hi samsparsha jaa bhogaa / duhkha yonaya eva te aady antavantah kaunteya / na teshu ramate budhah An intelligent person does not take part in the sources of misery, which are due to contact with the material senses. O son of Kunti, such pleasures have a beginning and an end, and so the wise man does not delight in them.

    Without Krishna we are completely lost. How to explain, I don’t know really. I don’t know how to explain the importance of bhakti. We are not devotees. We are not bhaktas and that is the reason of all our miseries. The root cause of the misery is that we are not attracted to the Supreme Lord.
