Time is Fearful - Part 14

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

This is in continuation of the transcription of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.14.3,

kālasya ca gatiṁ raudrāṁ viparyastartu-dharmiṇaḥ
pāpīyasīṁ nṛṇāṁ vārtāṁ krodha-lobhānṛtātmanām

He saw that the direction of eternal time had changed, and this was very fearful. There were disruptions in the seasonal regularities. The people in general had become very greedy, angry and deceitful. And he saw that they were adopting foul means of livelihood.

In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj how we can please Krishna by following MSC described in Srimad Bhagavatam 4.31.19 - M for mercy, S - Satisfaction in any condition of life and C for Controlling senses. Now we shall hear further.

Maharaj: This is how by pleasing Krishna, one can secure happiness. The teachings of Bhagavatam could be put into practice by anybody and the benefits will be best. So that's why we are calling it very nicely SB - that it's simple and basic. This is basic and very simple. You have to be kind to all the living entities including animals. You don't cut anything. We don't eat or we don't harm anybody that is dayayā sarva-bhūteṣu. And we have to be satisfied. We have booked rooms, its alright. We don't have any rooms, alright. We are sitting in open, so far, so good. We have so much oxygen. So we are ready for anything. Today we have money. Tomorrow we may not have anything. These possessions, situations changes all night. Today we may possess the whole thing. Tomorrow we don’t know. May be we have ten houses in kalawad road, but tomorrow something happens, we have to leave Rajkot. And ten houses, you can't take one brick with you.

Devotee: Maharaj - Srimad Bhagavatam 4.31.19 is Narada's instruction,

Maharaj: Narada's instruction? oh jai. Wherever narada speaks, please study. The thing is that these basic things are the settling our differences. And unless we try to settle in our mind, we will not be able to become a devotee. Then you will be always hovering around the difference always. And not only this differences, but rich and poor, sick or healthy, short or long - there are so many differences. Our complexion, fair complexion and black complexion so many differences. At every where there is bodily level. So these differences we have to settle once for all. Otherwise devotional service is difficult. Otherwise you will be hovering around these things.

Krishna willing we shall hear further nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Srilakshmi devi dasi
