Doing Work without Proprietorship is Renunciation - Part 5

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

This is in continuation of the transcription of one of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Bhagavad Gita verse BG 5.2 in Sri Sri RadhaNeel Madhav dham Rajkot on 16th May 2009. In previous offering we heard from Maharaj that

1. Sannyas means to stop enjoying the fruits of karma.
2. Renunciation attitude will help us to be unaffected by miseries. 
3. Renunciation should not make us lethargic, but more immaculate in our duties.
4. The more you work and the more you renounce, the more you are elated. 

Now let us hear from Maharaj.

Maharaj: Then, tayos tu karma-sannyāsāt karma-yogo viśiṣyate. But even then, tayos tu karma-sannyāsāt, accepting karma-sannyās, karma-sannyās means not to do anything. We better engage ourselves in karma yoga, then your time is well spent, you will not get fed up.

Otherwise, Krishna consciousness, is a lifelong process. Lifelong and in this, two things are definitely required – Patience, you cannot be impatient, you have to have patience. Because Krishna is non-different from His chanting, or sound vibration, we saw. So we have to always enjoy the sound. We have to always enjoy the service, because He is non-different from service. You do any service here, and He is nondifferent. So, we must be very patient to experience Him. And the reward is that you are completely peaceful. If you are patient, then you are peaceful. Then nothing can disturb you. Because we are not on the material platform. We have only cut our relationship with the material world by forsaking the results. By forsaking the fruits, we have severed our connection with the material world. And because you have severed your connection with the material world, you are completely patient, come what may, and the result is you are very peaceful.

And this double P is the secret of having a good body, in a working condition and mind. Mind is peaceful, there is no disturbance. Only disturbed mind creates sinful activities. Peaceful mind enjoys Krishna’s association. tayos tu, therefore, karma-sannyāsāt, don’t touch karma-sannyās, don’t stop your activities. Do it for Krishna. That’s it. So far, we are doing activities for ourselves. Now, do it for Krishna. That’s all. And everything will be yours. As soon as you do activities for yourself, the limit comes. Then you are locked up in a 10x10 room – there is a limit. You are working for yourself, fruits. As soon as the fruitive mentality is there, the limitation creeps in. Then you have to buy the house, you have to stay in that house, maintain, pay, everything comes. But as soon as you are ready to forsake, you are in the unlimited world – that is Krishna’s world.  

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 Gurudev,
Dinavatsal Krishna das
