Everything Happens According to His Will - Part 2

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

This is in continuation of the transcription of one of the nectarean class by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj at Sree Sree Radha NeelMadhav dham, Rajkot, on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 1.7.31-32, in the year 2005. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that subtle nuclear energy is more powerful than the gross nuclear energy. Now we shall hear further.

Gurudev: Seeing and hearing is same. Please! Remember this. And the 2nd point is that every planet has a population. And this point Parikshit maharaj knew. So when he was cursed by that rishi's son to die after seven days, so he left immediately all things. To leave is very difficult. To leave anything is very difficult. Even my pen, I misplace somewhere and I am disturbed. Our mobile placed somewhere, "It's my mobile" (not clear) "Where's my mobile?" (not clear) See I am disturbed. (Gurudev laughs) So to leave anything is very difficult. Very difficult. So how Parikshit Maharaj left everything? Tell them, to leave everything. To leave means is very very difficult. (Referring to a devotee Gurudev said) He loses his bead bag and he is disturbed. You don't have your bead bag and you search for it. You are disturbed. Ah! Anything we lose we are disturbed.Parikshit Maharaj was the king of the whole planet. How much money and gold he must be having? How much money? How much gold he may have? You cannot leave your bead bag, how can you leave the whole thing? You cannot forego your bead bag. Devotee at the time of death is not disturbed because we know that īśāvāsyam idam sarvaṁ, that's it. (Gurudev laughs) So we leave and go. We are peaceful. Materialistic man cannot be peaceful, cannot be peaceful. Those who are thinking about the material things, they will always think material. For the whole of lifetime you are thinking about the material things. At the time of death also you think material.
 
There is nice story to remember you know. There was one goldsmith. Always he was remembering gold you know. For the whole of life time he knew the gold prices. Gold price price, what is it?  80 rupees, 100 rupees, 110 rupees, you know like these. Daily he was remembering gold. So when he became old he had a fever you know. So children were worried that now father will pass away (Gurudev laughs). So children, his children were worried. Gurudev: this is nice, so kuttigal worried you know. ( Gurudev and devotees laugh). So they thought to bring doctor you know. They wanted to call the doctor. So the doctor took out the thermometer you know and put the thermometer in his mouth. And then after sometime he took out and he saw you know. He said, " Aye, 106 degrees" He said, "very hot" he said. And "he has fever, 106 degree." The old man heard 106 degree, 106 he heard. And he thought it was the gold price. (Gurudev and devotees laugh)

So please, he thought that it was the gold price. He was very angry with the children. "Why are you sitting here in,  ( not clear), go to the shop, (Gurudev laughs) we have bought it for 80 Rd, now it is 106, sell it, sell it, sell it, ah....." ( Gurudev and devotees laugh) He passed away. (Gurudev laughs). But the point is whatever you do whole life, you remember at the end. So if we chant, chant your rounds then you will be chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa at the end. If you chant rupaya, rupaya, rupaya you will chant rupee (Gurudev laughs). If you chant wife, wife, wife, (Gurudev and devotees laugh) then children, children, children (Gurudev laughs). Please!  So please rememember this and that's why regularly we have to attend mangala arati. Regularly we have to attend tulasi arati. Regularly we chant siksatakam or whatever. Regularly we chant. Regularly we are sitting for Bhagavatam. Then for the whole day we are doing nothing really. Whole day is meant for service or study. Either you should do service or study. Again in the evening Bhagavad Gita class, arati. The people who are staying in the temple should be always present in mangala arati.

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

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
