    As soon as the ease vanishes, you are suffering from disease. Because you are not at ease, then you are diseased. Then one thing you understand from this is that medicines cannot cure our disease

    Arjuna didn't know really what is happening. So he immediately went to Krishna for guidance. This is the way to stop the reverses. Reverses are bound to come. But we have full faith as we saw in the first seed verse.

    "There is nothing to be lamented, when a matter is beyond the control of any human being." We are all conditioned souls. There are few conditions we cannot avoid. For example birth is a condition. And those who are born, they have to die.

    Please, we are self-sufficient to understand Bhagavatam with the help of Prabhupada. How can we neglect such a highly merciful soul? Please don't fall prey to the misguidances. Please come to this realisation and dig into your own heels.

    We have the bones in our body, flesh in our body, blood in our body. All this are His energy in the form of water and earth. All this are His energy in the form of water and earth. But we know that apart from the water inside the body, there is great mass of water outside the body.

    Our bodies, buildings, hills etc are all created and at the moment they are being maintained. But time is running out. Time is working on every body in the material world.

    In the material world, the process and goal are different. In spiritual world the process and goal are same. Our goal is to know about the Supreme Lord, the Supreme Absolute Truth Krishna and re-establish our own relationship with Him.

    Our beloved spiritual master H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj says that the root word of shaastra comes from shaasan which means to rule. If we let scriptures rule our life, then our life will be glorious.

    Lust includes all kinds of unwanted desires. The lives of demons like Ravana, Hiranyakashipu, Hiranyaksha, Kamsa etc all show how when their unwanted or undeserving desires were the seed for their downfall

    Maharaj always saw good in everyone and never liked criticism. Whenever someone criticize about others to him, Maharaj just cut them off and thereby stopped the idea of finding faults.

    We are all from different backgrounds and different nature. But Maharaj never hated us. He never wanted us to be with whatever this mterial body would have given to us. Maharaj wanted us to rise above all material designations, material things and material ideas. He was very particular about this. Very particular

    Usually in beginning of Krishna consciousness, we are attracted by either seeing the devotees or listening to kirtans or prasadam or reading books. And in the beginning, when we chant the holy names, we get lot of bliss and taste and this makes us enthusiastic to take the process seriously.
