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, "Pass on the Bhagavatam Tradition" wherein we were transcribing one of the nectarean Bhagavatam class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.3.11. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that we should realise the truth that Krishna is the Supreme controller.
Now let us hear more from Gurudev.
9. Seeing Krishna in everything:
Gurudev: As soon as our drshti, our eyesight is completely trained into this (seeing Krishna's hands everywhere) then no living entity, we don't love. We really like every living entity. We don't discriminate. Anybody comes, same thing. That's why Prabhupada was able to establish 108 temples because he didn't discriminate. Otherwise not a single Indian birth, Indian man was with him really. He took all the, this job was done by the foreigners whom he didn't know. But he didn't discriminate. He thought that these are also spiritual sparks, mamaivāṁśo jīva-loke (BG 15.7).
We have eyeballs. Eyeballs have the capacity to discriminate. But we have eyesight. Eyeballs have no value. It's all charma chakshu. It's all made of skin, bone and blood, and what not. The eyeballs have no value at all. But behind eyeball, there is a trained eyesight. If you run after the eyeball, you will be kicked out. If you run by the sight, if you are guided by the sight, you will be worshipped. This is how. How can we forego this? And for this eyesight and eyeball, the majority of the public is running after eyeball. That's why they see some women, they run after her. Some beautiful things they will see, they'll run after that. These, we are following the eyeball.
You forget about this, foolish eyeballs. Remember that drshti and drshti is the manifestation of the soul inside. And the Super-soul is guiding it. As soon as you hand over yourself to the Super-soul, for you, there is nothing else except Super-soul and soul. And this is vāsudeva sarvam iti sa mahātma sudurlabhah. Otherwise, why Anasūyā, Anasūyā has Lord as her child. Why not we? Because we are discriminative. As soon as you come to this fact from the pages of Srimad Bhagavatam then in toto, we understand tattvatah. What is it? janma karma ca me divyam, evam yo vetti, those who know this, evam yo, those people. Vetti, they know. tatvatthah, this is tattva. Nothing else.
As soon as you come to a non-discriminative attitude, you'll be loved by everybody.
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,
Krishnarati devi dasi
