Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.
I wish to share an article given by HH Satsvarupdas Goswami Maharaj. He quotes that the biggest mistake of mordern society is the forgetfullness of Lords very basic teaching. Lord Krsna says in Bhagavad Gita that, "You are not this body". We are spirit soul part and parcel of Krsna and our nature is to serve Him. jivera swarup hoi nitya krishna das
Just like in normal arithmetic, if we make any mistake in the beginning itself, then the same mistake will be carried out till the answer. Even if we take enough care, we will never get correct answer. Similarly if we do not understand the ABC of spiritual life that we are not this body, we are spirit we can not achieve perfection. Srila Prabhupada explains in one of his lecture that Perfection means -"to remain fixed in devotional service" of the Lord.
Further to this I wish to extend my heartiest thanks to HG Kalcakra Prabhu for writing such a nice pastime of Lord Damodar.
Thank you very much,
Radha Madan-mohan Das
