Ingrates are Rejected by Everyone - Part 3

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.The following is a humble effort to transcribe one of the nectarean Bhagavad Gita class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on BG 6.35 in Houston on 15th June 2003. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that

1. Krishna is telling BG 6.35 that mind is flickering and unsteady and to bring it under control we should try to perform austerities.
2. The stones thrown by Lord Ram sank in the ocean whereas when Hanuman and others wrote Lord Ram's name on it, they floated.

Now we shall hear from Maharaj.

 Maharaj: We are all thrown away and that’s why we are in America (laughter). Greatest punishment, I think. Those like us who had already settled in the Western countries, they are really punished. Krishna selects that “I must punish this living entity – go to America” He says. Please, America is also best, if on your mind at least Lord’s Ram name is written. Otherwise this stone will drown anywhere. We are just stone-like. And this transcendental vibration of the name, nāmnām akāri bahudhā nija-sarva-śaktis - "in Your names You have invested all Your energies." He says. niyamitaḥ smaraṇe na kālaḥ, "there is no regulation when you can remember Him through the names". Being non-different from the names, names are equally powerful. And He says, etādṛśī tava kṛpā, "such a nice kṛpā You have done, You are so merciful to us, that You have given Your name to us," durdaivam, "but I am unlucky ihājani nānurāgaḥ, I am not interested in these things."

Please don’t be victimized by this durdaivam. Understand the transcendental message. That’s why Prabhupada writes here that- (Maharaj continues to reads the purport) In the present age, any other method is not working. By the practice of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, however, one engages in nine types of devotional service to the Lord. The first and foremost of such devotional engagements is hearing about Kṛṣṇa. 

 We are very busy, (even then) please try hear, try to crowd around this place. Fortunately, the authorities here, the boys are building a nice temple now. Please cooperate with them and it will be a very gorgeous place, and so many living entities will be able to take advantage of it. One temple I think in Huston is not enough. So we may not be able to build another temple soon. But instead, we may have groups around Houston where in this Krishna Katha is going on. You don’t have to do much, we call it naamhatta programs. You all are equally powerful, you all are part and parcel of Krishna, you have the same capacity as everybody has. Please, please, whatever engagement you may have materially, doesn’t matter at all. On Saturdays and Sundays you may be free, or somewhere, call your friends and read Bhagavad Gita, try to understand, it is very simple English language, and try to discuss whatever Krishna helps you to discuss. And this is how this transcendental movement must increase so that it may give the correct medicine for the suffering humanity at large. 

This is the supreme medicine. Other medicines don’t work, or if they work they have reactions. Please save yourself from the reactive medicines. This medicine works definitely – Ram Baan, the arrow of Lord Ram will exactly hit the target. This medicine will hit the target. Acyuta, Ananta, Govinda- these are Krishna’s names, namochharana beshajaat, just by pronunciation, is this medicine.

Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare
Hare Rāma, Hare Rāma, Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare

This is the effective medicine. Please try this before you are victimised by the hospitals or so-called advancement.

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

Thank you very much.
