Power of Vedic Vibrations - Part 1

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 in Sri Sri Radha Neel Madhav dham, Rajkot on September 28 2007 on BG 2.51.

Maharaj: In Vedic literatures, whichever verse you sing from Bhāgavatam or Bhagavad-gītā or any other Puranas or whatever, any lyric you sing, it will be classical music. It will never be cheap music. That is the quality of our literatures. They are coming from higher source. They are not the mundane creation. It is known as apauruṣeya. No conditioned living entity has written these literatures. As we saw in the morning, conditioned living entities have four defects. They can’t write like this. These are from higher sources. And recently because of Prabhupada’s hard labour, it is available now in very simple English language. There are other languages also. Please try to sing. All these vibrations, they are transcendental, divya dhvani. dhvani, it is known as dhvani, you sing any verse and it is dhvani. 

ṣāntākāram bhujaga śayanam padmanābham sureśam
viṣvādhāram gaganasadṛśam meghavarṇam ṣubhāngam
lakshmīkāntam kamalanayanam yogibhir-dhyāna-gamyam
vande vishṇum bhava-bhaya-haram sarva-lokaika-nātham 

ṣāntākāram - this is dhvani. ṣāntākāram (Maharaj repeats twice) this is dhvani. This dhvani is non-different from Krishna, because it is divya dhvani, it is transcendental. It doesn’t have anything to do with the mundane world. It takes you immediately from the mundane miserable conditions to the eternal blissful conditions. Very easy. In Kali Yuga no other process works. This is the only process. You please learn the verse, one verse, and in this verse, there are nine oṁs. And oṁ is non-different praṇavaḥ sarva-vedeṣu (BG 7.8), He says that “I am the praṇavaḥ, oṁkara in all the Vedas. śabdaḥ khe, I am the sound vibration in the space, pauruṣaṁ nṛṣu, ability in man”. Out of this, oṁkara is here.

ṣāntākāram bhujaga śayanam padmanābham sureśam Again in sureśam, su is long and sham there is oṁ. In this one line, there are three oṁs . ṣāntākāram bhujaga śayanam padmanābham. There is a Padmanābha temple in Trivandrum. padmanābham sureśam, four oṁs. This one line gives you four transcendental seed of the vibration. oṁkar is the seed of the vibration - au and ma. All the languages are included in this. Everything is included in this – that is Krishna. ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo (BG 10.8)– “I am the source of everything, mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate, from Me everything emanates. Those who know this perfectly, they engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts”.

Our children sing this verse. Please, it is our pious duty to give our children these eternal seeds. Our life is going somehow or the other, but for them, the time is very difficult. Unless they have this transcendental seed with them, they will not be able to tolerate the time. Money will not help them. We may have our wealth or whatever, don’t know really what happens. Everything is very temporary here and full of misery. Only one thing helps and that is this transcendental vibration. Otherwise, there is no ease. You learn the verses nicely with love, you chant – that’s the worship of Krishna. That drags you out of all the miserable conditions of the material existence. How nice.

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
Dinavatsal Krishna das
