Power of Vedic Vibrations - Part 3

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

This is in contination of the transcription 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. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that

1. Everything is miserable in this material world. The best gift we could give to next generation is the transcendental sound vibration.
2. We should devote sincerely to Krishna - whole heartedly.

Now we shall hear further.

Maharaj: The thing is, fruitive activity – we have to have it. Opposite to karma, karma-jaṁ, is akarma, the karmas which don’t produce results. From time immemorial, we had so many species of existence. We were dogs, we were cats, we were snakes, we were mouse, everything we were. And every time we behaved in karma-jaṁ (consciousness)Always we performed some activity and wanted some results. So, in the human form also, we are habituated to get the fruits. That’s why our selfish interest is that I will only work if I get the result. That is our way, nothing new, it is coming from our body. We have to maintain our body, we have to maintain our family, maintain our responsibilities, there must be returns. Then these returns how it is to be converted to no-returns – that we have to learn in this human existence. This is the main goal of having the human existence.

Since time immemorial we are habituated to have the fruits of the karmas. Now this is the time when scriptures insist that ours should be instead of karma-jaṁ, it should be akarma. So how is it to be done, that is described in this verse. Please, Bhagavad-gītā being directly spoken by Krishna is fully pregnant with meaning. Don’t waste your time, every breath should be invested in Bhagavad-gītā. This one verse gives us so many thoughts to chew that even lives are short. Our life is nothing – 100 years it is regarded, but we know that nobody survives for 100 years. May be 50,60,70,80. For example 80, even then 40 years we sleep, so 40 remaining. In the 40 years of which is remaining also in the beginning years we don’t have anything, up to 20 years, 30 years we are just in youth and madness. So those 20 years are gone, 20 remain. The end years are useless, can’t see, you can’t talk, can’t walk, nothing happens. So, end 10 years gone, 10 years are there. In 10 years, we have to produce children, educate them, earn money, build houses, buy land and this and that. Where is the time? How are you going to invest the time in Bhagavad-gītā?

Unless you please steal time from your so-called busy life, you will not be able to do this. That’s why these groups are very much needed. Prabhupada is very merciful to us to give us the facility for these groups. Please increase this and always try to find out some time in the train or wherever and try to go to the pages of Bhagavad-gītā. As I told you, it is our words. karma-jaṁ buddhi-yuktā hi, by devotional service. By devotional service our fruits are purified. And that is our tradition – we are doing all activities, we are buying bhoga, we are buying stores, we are buying houses, we are buying lands and everywhere we put Krishna first – that is our culture. We know that everything belongs to Him. buddhi-yuktā hi, devotional service is there.

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
