Moment of Transcendence

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

Everyone of us is always craving for the highest benediction by which we can become happy and live a comfortable life in this world because we are basically ānanda-mayo ’bhyāsāt (hankering for pleasure). But we think that material assets, wealth, position are all the real benediction and even though we know they are temporary we do not want to leave them because we are so much conditioned and attached and we think with our puny mind that they are eternal and ever lasting. We therefore do not know what is the highest benediction for us in this age of kali and we go searching for it all over the world and also in various species of life.

Srimad Bhagavatam is enlightening us about the highest benediction.

SB 4.30.35
yatreḍyante kathā mṛṣṭās tṛṣṇāyāḥ praśamo yataḥ
nirvairaṁ yatra bhūteṣu nodvego yatra kaścana

Whenever pure topics of the transcendental world are discussed, the members of the audience forget all kinds of material hankerings, at least for the time being. Not only that, but they are no longer envious of one another, nor do they suffer from anxiety or fear.

The three things happens while reciting SB:
1) No Fear
2) No Envy
3) No Dissatisfaction

H G Devakinandan Prabhuji gave a nectarean class in Abu Dhabi and was emphasising a very important point during the Srimad Bhagavatam class that we are all very fortunate to Partake in the wonderful moment of transcendence. The presence of the above three things denote it is Vaikunta atmosphere and therefore it is the highest benediction given to us inspite of our unqualified position. This is possible only by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and therefore we should sincerely surrender to Srila Prabhupada and scrutinisingly study his literatures to make wonderful moments into hours and days and thereby purify our existence. Our Mangala arati and Srimad Bhagavatam spreads vibrations that purifies the whole world (jagat pavitram).

I therefore pray sincerely to Gurudev and Lord Sri Krishna to shower their mercy for an errant soul like me to take advantage of this highest benediction and participate continuously in the wonderful moment of transcendence.

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
