Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.
This is in continuation of the previous offering titled, "No Counteraction is the Best Counteraction" which is transcription of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 7.6.2 in Sri Sri Radha NeelMadhav dham, Rajkot. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that we must be obedient. Now we shall hear further.
10. Be suhrt to all:
Gurudev: Please, these things are very clear but the, the Bhagavatam always insists that everybody should be grateful to anybody else. Man, to that extent Parikshit Maharaj wanted to die than to punish the young brahmin boy. He just accepted it as the will of the Lord. He didn't see the boy. He thought that it is the Lord's wish. Immediately he quit everything. It is the prime example in our Bhagavatam. And we cannot tolerate even a single thing. We have our own notions and our own concoctions. And because of concoction, we destroy the whole thing. There is nothing but we concoct. And we create the atmosphere which is not there. Really it is not there, but the concoctions create the atmosphere. They should never be there and why? Because we don't know that every living entity has a very intimate connection with Krishna. (Gurudev smiles.) That is our ignorance. And that's why this intimate relationship, the word is there in this verse also and other verses also. It is suhrt. suhrt, hrt means hrdaya, we are connected to hrdaya, very intimate connection.
Man! Wife is really another girl that we didn't know. But as soon as she got related to us, she becomes really suhrt, heart to heart connection. (In a joking mood Maharaj says how after marriage some people ignore the mother and is always after the wife.) Man! Mother you keep quiet (laughter). Man! My wife is my demigoddess (laughter). Mother has to be away. (Gurudev and devotees laugh). That is suhrt. And Krishna is suhrt to any and every living entity. So all living entities are very intimately connected. Somebody's relationship may be covered, but every living entity has an intimate connection with Him. And intimate connection means, He is ready to do anything for you, provided you obey. You go to Him. And that's why chanting is very much needed, coming to the temple is also very much needed. In this atmosphere, we can't borrow that you know, you can't buy. You go to the first class hotel, pay so much money, but this (spiritual) atmosphere will not be there, sanga will not be there. This is the meaning of suhrt, intimate relationship.
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
