The Greatest Achievement - Part 3

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 "Greatest Achievement" which is transcription of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.19.5 in Sydney on 6th July 2003. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj as to how

1. Demigods are also eager to be born on earth planet, so that they can engage in devotional service nicely.
2. Krishna is inconceivable.

Now we shall hear further.

3. Chant Krishna's Names and Dance for Him:
Either we run after some living entity, some bushy man, not worth looking at. And the whole world is running man! I don't understand. Simply ridiculous. Our, one of the very nice devotees, Prabhupada's disciple, married one Chinese origin lady and in the end she, she found out that she is  Bangalore woman - origin in Bangalore (Gurudev and devotees laugh). And then there was a fighting really. Because this one, Prabhupada's disciple running after Kṛṣṇa, "Your Kṛṣṇa is in Bangalore. He is situated in Bangalore. If you want to stay with me, then come to Bangalore", she said. He had to go there and when he went in, he couldn't find (Gurudev laughs) and the man is not worth looking now because he was getting old now. (Gurudev laughs) 

Please, please these are the completely misguiding currents on this planet. And not only this we are in the habit of somebody to worship, except  Kṛṣṇa. Because we don't see. We don't think about Him, inconceivable. The meaning is inconceivable. And because He is inconceivable, we don't want to think about Him. Anyway even if you think, as soon as the mind comes in, He runs away. So we think, "yes, what He is like? umm! Umm! Umm!umm!"  And nothing comes in. "Ah! Forget about it. No, no I can't meditate." Please, for our own convenience He comes in the deity form and that is prescribed form of Kṛṣṇa. Those carvers they are Muslim in Jaipur. Muslim carvers are the best carvers on the deities. And they study Narada pancharatra. Because Narada muni we know that everyday he wanted, he wanted, he wanted to see Kṛṣṇa. And He was longing to go to Dwaraka and stay there for three months, four months. All the time he was in Dwaraka, all the time. Otherwise, because he couldn't stay, anywhere more than two days. So he had to live in Dwaraka, if he wanted to take rest. Annual holiday was in Dwaraka.  

Our annual holiday is in Mayoka, somewhere in the hotel, eating all the skins and eggs and what not and dance without any... Dancing is very good, provided you are in front of, dancing in front of the (Lord). gitāsu mama nāmāni nartayed mama samvido - gitāsu mama nāmāni - "Those who sing My names" and  nartayed mama samvido - "dance in front of Me," krito 'ham te arjuna - "Arjuna, I am bought by him." So please the more you dance here, the more you bind the Supreme Absolute Truth. Those who want to bind, please dance here only. He is in your pocket. (Gurudev laughs). Take out any time, yes! Haribol!!! (Gurudev and devotees laugh) gitāsu mama nāmāni nartayed mama samvido and now we are pleased to see devotees run from one corner to the other corner you know. This is gitāsu mama nāmāni and this is vedic. This is bingo hall, Kṛṣṇa's bingo hall. 

Krishna willing we will try to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

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