Power of Vedic Vibrations - Part 9

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

This is in continuation 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 if we stick to Prabhupada’s books, we will never go wrong. If we leave those books, then we will do all wrong. Choice is ours.

Now we shall hear further

Maharaj: Now the things are completely different. Please, that’s why community – you should think how much you can spare. And try to donate to the cause if it is really real. If not, in your own place, in your own house, we are buying the bhoga daily, please buy it for Krishna, that’s it. Just change of consciousness is needed. At least minimum we can do is this, that we can change our consciousness. In every buying, Krishna should be there. We buy cloth, we buy for Krishna, we offer everything to Krishna. This can very easily be done. Those who have meagre earning, they may not be able to donate, but they always buy. So, change your consciousness.

Whenever you can, please invite the devotees. Don’t think any bad of anybody. We commit this offence unknowingly. We should always see good. Once Prabhupada was asked by a devotee that you always tell to find out the pure devotee and associate, so how to find out the pure devotee, I don’t see that they are pure. So Prabhupada said that except you rascal, everybody is pure. (Laughter) This is the way. Please find faults with your own self and don’t blame any others. nāsya tat pratikurvanti (SB 1.18.48), we don’t retaliate, we don’t criticise. If you want to criticise, we criticise ourselves. We are full of defects. We are also having body, we also have our own necessities, criticisms and blame is always to us. If you blame yourself, you criticise yourself, then there is no harm. The matter ends there. But if you blame others or criticise others, then the matter lingers on and our valuable time for this body is wasted. So, don’t do that.

Whatever you can do with your income, you are free to do it. But please try to change the consciousness at least. And if you can donate, so far so good, because the public at large will be definitely helped. If somebody did not donate for this building, we will not be able to sit here. How many people are taking advantage of this building. Whoever had donated, they told me, all of them who have donated here, they have told me clearly that our name should never be mentioned. That is their greatness. What are you going to give? I am a thief; you are a thief. What one thief can give to the other thief? (Laughter)

We are nonsense! Please, have a sensible attitude. Don’t see bad anywhere. You see good, good, good, good, good, good, eventually you become good. You see bad, bad, bad, you will become bad. So, why to become bad. Always try to learn the eternal truths from the pages of Bhāgavatam. Unfortunately, we do not have much time with you, otherwise I would have shown practically how to do it. This is how we people should enter into Bhāgavatam and unfold Prabhupada. Prabhupada has explained very nicely. It is our duty now to unfold Prabhupada and show how Prabhupada is very essential for our existence. Please, these are the practical points. I hope and pray, you all are intelligent, much more than me, please continue the search in the pages of Prabhupada’s literature and try to find out some eternal things to propagate to the younger ones or whoever you associate with.

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
