Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,

Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev!

This is the concluding part of the previous mails transcribing the lecture by our beloved Guru Maharaj, HH Mahavishnu Goswami spoken in Durban, South Africa on 19th December 1994. In the last mails the following five points were explained.

1. Our eager search for the reality
2. The importance of hearing to clear our consciousness.
3. The basic underlying spiritual unity among all.
4. We should not increase the unnecessary demands of the body and create complicated situations.
5. Hear from Srimad Bhagavatam and that is the only way to purify our polluted goal of existence.

Maharaj was explaining that we should be able to carry on our life under any circumstances by simplifying our life and that is the way to be unflinchingly attached to Krishna.

6 .Get attached to the anti material:

Come to the simple life and your life should be maintained in any circumstances. Today you have a very nice circumstance. But tomorrow the circumstances may change and even then your life should go on. In India there are millions of families. They go early in the morning to the river. They take bath, wash their clothes, dry them and within one hour everything is ready. That habit will carry them in any situation. So far as the river is there, and they have life, they will maintain and the beauty of it is that Krishna does not send you the bill after one month that you have taken 30 buckets of water. No. It is only man made. Go to the current of the river and take out as long as you want and even then no bills. This is the chief thing to be understood. That our life in any situation it should go on and then only you can chant unflinchingly

And then maya will not have any effect on you because you are completely attached to Adhokshaja- one who is beyond all experimental knowledge.

You cannot experiment in laboratory and find out Krishna there. You can’t do it. Avyayam-inexhaustible. He completely always remains the same and always fresh. Our body being material is always dirty. If you want to keep the body very clean, you have to get attached to Krishna who is always fresh and who is anti material.

The material things are putting us into different situations. You touch a car. Suppose you think you are buying a Mercedez car. By buying the car, you are not buying comfort. With the Mercedez car, the whole responsibility is on your shoulders. If tomorrow there is a puncture, you are dead. If there is something wrong in the car, you have to get it repaired. You have to pay the tax; you have to have the driving license. All these inebrieties come because we have the vehicle As soon as you take any material thing, you have to follow these things and when you want to go to some place, suppose you are travelling alone, how many seats you want? You want only one seat; you want only one wheel and steering is enough. We don’t want the whole paraphernalia. But you have to take the whole car. You can’t take one seat and go. You can’t. As soon as you take the car, fans, wheels, eight tyres, spare tyres this and that and something goes wrong, instead of sitting above the car, you have to go under the car. These are the inebrieties. We have to come out of this. As soon as we come outo f this, then nobody can touch us, then we can go on
