Never Leave the Bhagavatam Shelter - Part 2

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 instructive nectarean initiation class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj, in Sri Sri RadhaNeel Madhav dham Rajkot on 8th January 2005. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that

1. even in difficult situations, if we take shelter of brahminical culture, religion and Krishna, then we will be saved.

Now let us hear from Maharaj.

Maharaj: In transcendence, there is no matter. So, there won’t be any misunderstanding. There won’t be any fight, nothing, we have crossed over all such things because of transcendence. We are not attracted to wealth at all. We require, as I told you, complete detachment is not possible. Till you have body, complete detachment is not possible at all. If somebody says that I am completely detached, he is nonsense. Some detachment has got to be there, but we don’t have that mad attraction. That is the thing. We are completely crossing over these things. And because we are completely crossing over these things, the difficulties, to that extent reduce. Because these are the three sources of miseries. If the excessive attachment is there, the difficulties are bound to be there. The source of the difficulties is excessive attachment to these three things. If we reduce that attachment sanely, then there is no difficulty. Then there is only one difficulty we have to endure and that is our body. Additional difficulties are not there. 

 And you just continue preaching. The doctor says anything we believe, we really believe. So, I don’t know how, but you should increase this idea of Transcendence. They may call it Krishna or something else, but this idea has got to be preached. 

(Maharaj enquires about a devotee if he is back or not) 

There is one nice doctor here, he is serving in hospital, very nice hospital. I think he is a neurologist? One family went to him (the doctor), wife was very sick. So he saw that nothing really is wrong. So he said to her – she stays in front at the government colony, in front here, we have government colony here, so they stay here, so they went. Now if there would have been any greedy doctor, he would have misdirected her. But he very frankly told her that you don’t have any disease, you just do one thing Mata, in front of you, there is a temple, daily visit the temple and forget about the sickness. 

And she was really very happy to hear that, because everybody was telling, "you are suffering from this, you are suffering from this." She was very happy to hear that. She said, ‘Are you telling the truth? I don’t have anything?" He said, "nothing is there, you just go to Krishna, chant His names and you will be alright." And now that family is so very atrracted to the temple. And they are happy, their two kids are coming here. This is how. Many times if the misdirection is absent in your profession, people will be really very, very much helped. Because everybody is suffering. Pollution is there. Even if the man is healthy, what can he do about the pollution? Pollution here in the city is hell really. Everywhere it is bad, particularly in India. In addition to the pollution, there is dust also, so many things are there. Everyday people will be coming to you.

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,
