Power of Vedic Vibrations - Part 10

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 blame ourselves, we criticise ourselves, then there is no harm. The matter ends there. But if we blame others or criticise others, then the matter lingers on and our valuable time for this body is wasted. So, we should not do that.

Now we shall hear further

Maharaj: Don’t waste your time in petty things. No, we clear everything. We don’t have time. Very limited time we have. Whatever you decide is good, for you are the master of your fruits. Whatever work you have done, you are getting, don’t worry about it at all. As I told you, if you can do something, (that’s good), otherwise you go to Vrindavan or anywhere, find out monkeys, buy bananas and let them eat. That is also Krishna Conscious activity. That is also donation. Cows should be fed, put grass to the cows. You can’t maintain the cow, wherever cows are there, you should donate. This is how. Otherwise, even then you are the master of your money, please keep it and let it reduce (laughter). But please don’t stop your devotional service and Prabhupada’s association. If you associate with Prabhupada, eventually you will be intelligent enough to organise your own things. So, I will leave it to you really and to Prabhupada to guide you. Jai, Srila Prabhupada Ki Jai.

Devotee: It is said that literatures’ authenticity can be just based on logical analysis or by śabdaḥ brahma. Our Bhagavad-gītā is based on śabdaḥ brahma, based on sound. How is Srimad Bhāgavatam based on?

Maharaj: It is based on śabdaḥ, vibration, vibration.

Devotee: Can you distinguish these three things out - śabdaḥ, vision and logical analysis.

Maharaj: See, as I told you dhvani, dhvani is the main thing, śabda. Krishna says in Bhagavad-gītā, that “I am śabdaḥ khe, in the space, I am the sound”. Nowadays it is very difficult to hear the sounds because of plenty of electricity at night. Electricity vibrations are there, so the real dhvani is not heard. Maybe sometime you may go to a remote village where there is no electricity or something, there are śabda, different śabdas, different sound vibrations are there. One sound vibration is of our planet, because it is moving around the axis and near the equator the speed of this movement is 25,000 miles per hour. It is moving very fast. That sound is there. Then this planet as a whole is moving around the sun, there is again śabda, and it is every second 16,000 miles.

We are sitting in a merry-go-round. We are here in one hour, we have gone 16,000 miles, that śabda is there. And again, the original śabda is there. These three sounds are very clearly heard. But because of the electricity, magnetic field, this electricity has an artificial magnetic field and that’s why the original dhvani is disappearing. That is the reason for our misery. We don’t hear the original things. In the morning I told that when you chant or when you hear Bhāgavatam or read, we should avoid the electronics. Please, this real śabda must be heard. At least try to hear your own words without any aids. Electronics must be avoided. Any modern development must be avoided. That is the thing needed.

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
