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 the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 13.3 in Sri Sri Radha NeelMadhav dham, Rajkot in the year 2006. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that
1. Inorder to get out of the miseries we have to take guidance from higher source.
2. If there is disturbance in celestial influence, then there are earthly reactions, which inturn affects our body and mind.
Now we shall hear further.
Maharaj: You told (referring to Murali Prabhu) that in Hungary, Sivaram Swami has started a project wherein there is no electricity or no artificial needs. That is really worth following. The good should always be followed from whichever corner it is coming. If we can, we should really stop the electricity in this compound also. We have to, if we want to flourish. If you want to have the moonshine, we must stop that. It requires a bit of courage, but people will just come to see the moonshine here. But we are not ready to follow. So, we are allured by this material advancements. And the resultant are that the reactions are there and at the same time, the body pains, and mind pain increases. And when mental balance goes away, there are misunderstandings – fightings. We can’t get along with anybody. And the reason is, material advancement. And the result of the material advancement is that we want to get rid of our conditions, which is not possible. This is what, Prabhupada is very genuine in his thinking. He wants us to become primitive in the modern society. You have told once, and it is a fact, isn’t it? (Maharaj referring to Murali Prabhu) that Christian group. They are completely separated group. This is the reason. They are following Prabhupada. With everything available, they are fed up. So, doctors, engineers, they become farmers. That’s how. This is - sanity is there, but how many sane people are there when we consider the population of the whole planet? It is few, very negligent percentage.
The whole thing should be propagated, and this material condition, I mean to say the so-called advancement, should be completely abolished by all the countries. There is no need of extensive travelling also. Traveling is so very increased now, that how much petrol we are consuming. Daily flights are there, from here to America and from here to South America, far away countries which are on the other side of the planet. How much of petrol we should be consuming. This is our modern advancement. And it should have the celestial disturbances. Because that substance which is in the planet, inside our planet, should be making a balance of our planet. Millions of barrels we are sucking out, so there must be some disturbance. So, the attraction is disturbed, everything is completely disturbed. This is celestial influence. And resultant are the earthly reactions. So, this is a combination. (Loud fireworks going on at the background) (laughter – Hare Krishna!!)
Murali Prabhu: They want to disturb the whole planet.
Maharaj: They want to forget the misery. This is non-stop going on. (Referring to the fireworks in the background) And lakhs of rupees are gone. Gone to the sky. Anyway, just come to our point. The disturbance, the earthly disturbances result in bodily pains, and disturbances in the mind.
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 Gurudev
Dinavatsala Krishna das
