No Counteraction is the Best Counteraction - Part 12

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 not concoct. Now we shall hear further.

12. Don't be egoistic:
Gurudev: If you are not suhrt, then you destroy the relationships. And we do the same thing regarding Krishna also because (He is) unseen by eyes, personified by time, by sound. This is His qualification, but most wonderful. And we forget about these things. Because we forget this suhrt relationship, so our whole life is spent in concoctions, concoctions. You please avoid. No concoctions. Whatever he is, he is quiet good. (Gurudev speaks in Gujarati) fāv se, gam se, chāl se they say in Guajarati.fāv se means "everything is alright."  "I like it." In English, gam se means, "I like it." That's it. chāl se means, 'So I don't worry about it."  Please escape these things. Little things. But I only catch the one point that why didn't he do. (Gurudev laughs). I only catch one point. And I, I spoil the whole relationship. (Gurudev laughs) He has done so much for me, that I don't remember. "But today why he did not ring ME?" (Gurudev laughs and jokes with devotee who had come without informing.) "Now, come on reply why or you will not get prasadam. You just go as you have come.". (Gurudev and devotees laugh) Man! Please this is how we are just destroying the whole thing here, because Bhagavatam is not in our life. We, we cannot be suhrt because we are not having intimate connection with the Lord. Because you do not know that Lord is suhrt. So we feel egoistic and ask why? And why means, we forget everything. 

 This concocting and egoistic attitude destroys the suhrt in us. Please try to understand this and one word if you can remember please, then you can put into practice. Then you will be very happy. And the egoistic activity will be completely destroyed. That's why that ego is known as false ego. It's not a real ego. Real ego is that, "I am devotee of Krishna and I am servant of Krishna." That is real ego. But we have the false ego, that, "I am master of every thing." And master means, "Why he did not ring me (before coming to meet Maharaj)? Finish. (Gurudev laughs). This destroys our relationships because suhrt is absent. 

One, one point only from this, this verse that Krishna has intimate connections with all the living entities. So everything belongs to Him really. We are not the reason. He's cause of all causes. If you can only realise this that He is sarva karana karanam then it keeps us sane. Sanity is there. Otherwise we are insane (Gurudev laughs). And most of the time, we are insane. Very, very seldom, we are sane. The sanity must prevail. Otherwise there is always bhūtānāṁ yan mithaḥ kaliḥ. Already there is dissension due to social intercourse. The dissensions must be avoided. Otherwise Bhagavatam is absent from our life. And if Bhagavatam is absent only dissension remains. And dissension causes more dissension. So this is how we are destroyed completely

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

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
