Save Yourself from Hell - Part 5

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

This is in conclusion of the offering, "Save Yourself from Hell"  wherein we are transcribing one of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Bhagavad Gita verse 16.16 of Bhagavad Gita in Sydney on June 1 2003. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj

1. Way to Hell.
2. Art of thinking about Krishna.
3. Elevate from the lower modes
4. Be with Krishna - Be at ease

Now we shall hear further.

5. Real Medical expense:
Gurudev: All these anxieties, there is no need of it. We are not supposed to be (anxious). We just have to recognize the authority of our Father through the saints like Prabhupada. And there's no cheating in this, There’s no cheating. It's all open. The cards are open. We want to have more beautiful places and why? Because the population at large should be liberated from this all wave of intricacy of these different anxieties. And anxieties are our own concoctions. Frankly speaking, there is nothing. Nothing touches our soul. It's all body. And how long we are going to, going to be on the bodily level? The time is running out, āyur harati vai pumsām, udyann astaṁ ca yann asau (Srimad Bhagavatam 2.3.17) - by rising and setting of the sun a day is decreased from our life. How many days are already gone? When are we going to be awake about these things? And waking means, we ourselves should devote some time for chanting, reading, coming to the temple and see that what is happening and to the best of our ability, we just cooperate thinking that this is medical expense. You know we don't think about our medical expense. As soon as we are sick, all our treasuries open. (Gurudev and devotees laugh) You know for what? For cutting our own body! 

Recently there was that Aditya Birla from India you know. Birla is a big businessmen there. So he must have millions of dollars here also. So he had a backache and so many people have backache, in India, here also. They are just carrying on you know doing something, exercise or whatever or some alternative medicines or whatever. But Aditya Birla had so much reservations maybe, reserved riches here. So he wanted to come to America and perform the operations or whatever, and get cured you know. So he came here and they have for this backache, they have a horrible way to have the diagnosis what is happening in the spine. They call it lumbar puncture. So they put big needle through the spine. And the graph is there and then they know what is happening. And then they operate and something. After operation also nobody gets cured really. But we think that, "Oh! I have this and that and instead of killing life, diagnosis itself is killing." This man might have experienced and might have some operation and some how or the other he succumbed to the operation. And he died really. This is the end result of the excess riches.

Krishna willing we shall continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering .

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Krishna Rati devi dasi,
Singapore.
