Everything Happens According to His Will - Part 4

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

1. Subtle nuclear energy (from brahma-astra) is more powerful than the gross nuclear energy (atom-bombs). 
2. Whatever we do whole life, we remember that at the end. 
3. There are living beings in every planet.

Now we shall hear further.

prajopadravam ālakṣya loka-vyatikaraṁ ca tam
mataṁ ca vāsudevasya sañjahārārjuno dvayam

Gurudev: Now we go to the equvivalents.

prajā — the people in general; upadravam — disturbance; ālakṣya — having seen it; loka — the planets; vyatikaram — destruction; ca — also; tam — that; matam ca — and the opinion; vāsudevasya — of Vāsudeva, Śrī Kṛṣṇa; sañjahāra — retracted; arjunaḥ — Arjuna; dvayam — both the weapons.

Thus seeing the disturbance of the general populace and the imminent destruction of the planets, Arjuna at once retracted both brahmāstra weapons, as Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa desired. (SB 1.7.32)

Gurudev: Hear the purport. Please hear. (Gurudev reads the purport and devotees hear.) The theory that the modern atomic bomb explosions can annihilate the world is childish imagination. (laughter)  Because the man who will release the bomb will also be killed. So they don't release. They have nuclear weapon but they are afraid to release. Because the whole thing will be annihilated here. It's an imagination. They are imagining, imagining. Somewhere there, some some mad person may have tried to start and that was the doubt you know about that Saddam Hussain. That's why, he was invaded, they couldn't find nuclear weapons there. This is how. We are afraid really. That some man, mad, mad man may have the button in his hand. And he will just press it and 'dhubh' the whole thing will blow. (Gurudev continues to read the purport) The theory that the modern atomic bomb explosions can annihilate the world is childish imagination. First of all, the atomic energy is not powerful enough to destroy the world. See Prabhupada knows. (Gurudev and devotees laugh) (Gurudev continues to read the purport) the atomic energy is not powerful enough to destroy the world. And secondly, ultimately it all rests on the supreme will of the Supreme Lord because without His will or sanction nothing can be built up or destroyed. This is the thing. Prabhupada is very clear. Two reasons he has given. Which is the first one?

Devotee: The atomic energy is not powerful enough to destroy the world.

Gurudev: cannot destroy the world. And they think that they can destroy. So it is imagination. The 2nd thing is Kṛṣṇa's will. Everything is under His control. īśasya hi vaśe loko, yoṣā dārumayī yathā, you know that puppet master who pulls the strings and dolls dance. We are like that. He pulls and we dance you know. Ultimately it all rests on the Supreme will of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Because without His will or sanction, nothing can be built up or destroyed.  

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

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
