Scriptures Strengthen our Faith in Holy Names - Part 8

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 discussion by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj in Auckland on 15th July 2003. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that without getting distracted, we should chant the Holy Names, study Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavatam. Now we shall hear further.

Maharaj: kahata kathaa aneka udhau loka lobha adhikayi, they attract us with different attractions. Come here we are giving this, come here Prabhupada did not give this and come here this. Man, everything is here, even blind Surdas can see, with all the eyes we cannot see. I really pity such crowd. Our line is very clear sons and daughters, we don’t follow any other thing. Those who come in between us and the names of Krishna, they are our enemies. They come here, we are chanting, please take part, take prasadam and Haribol, no other talk. This should be our clear cut way. Otherwise, the Naamhat doesn’t have any meaning. Then it becomes unnecessarily some criticism, talking and this and that. We don’t have any time.

This niḥśvāse, means we take breathing in and out is known as niḥśvāse. niḥśvāse nāhi viśvāsaḥ, we cannot trust it. When it will stop kadā ruddho bhaviṣyati, when it will stop we don’t know. kīrtanīya mato bālyād, that’s why young and old together should perform kirtan of the names, harer nāmaiva kevalam. The holy name of Lord Hari is surely all that be, we have learnt, we have learnt this. And as soon as you fix your mind on this, nobody can disturb you. Anybody comes to disturb us, please excuse. We have heard so many people, kahata katha aneka udau loka lobha dikhaai, these are all different attractions, enough of different attractions we had. This is a clear cut. It is very difficult to understand?

Please daughters remember these things and you put your sons on the right line. What stops us from putting our sons to take this one idea only? So they will also not be misguided, because they are very strong. Please. Mangal Arati we are doing. These sons are the product of Mangal Arati as you see. Since last 10 years, I know the family, since then they are performing (Mangal Arati), and these are the product of Mangal Arati. Why can’t we not repeat this? No need of distraction. Anybody tries to distract, please stop him with the strong terms. No distraction. Yes. 

nandanandana achata kaiyse urumei aniye aur calata chitavata dhaus jaagat supan sovan raati. hrdaya te vaha madana murati chinna itavati jaati kahat kathaa aneka udhau loka lobha dikharaayi 

Please kick in their teeth, that is how we should behave. Otherwise your bhajan is distracted. Don’t do that. Then second line. Kaha karu cita prema purati ghatana sindhu samaayi, it is very nice. He says, "what can I hear from them, because my whole jar is full of love of Krishna. So, what can they do. And in my that small jar, all the ocean of the material existence doesn’t come in. Our jar is full with the Krishna Prem, so I don’t want this sindhu – the ocean." This should be our look out.

Krishna willing we shall hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva
Dinavatsala Krishna das
