The Ultimate 4G Network - Part 1

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

Now usage of mobile phones is very common and its difficult to find a person not having mobile. Now smart phones have come and people use internet via mobile itself and watch movies. This is all possible because they are using advanced frequencies called spectrum. First there was 2G spectrum and 3G spectrum came by which people can use more advanced services in mobile. Now lot of advertisement is made about 4G spectrum and certain mobile service providers say that they use 4G network and hence its more reliable and one can get connection even if they are in a desert or in a dark forest. But none of these networks will work, if there is power failure due to a natural disaster or when mobile towers go down. However, the Mahabharata talks of a 4G which can connect us to the Supreme Lord and take us out of this material world and which will never fail. At the end of the Bhagavad Gita, the following verse is recited by Vaisampayana in glorification of the Bhagavad Gita in (Mahabharata, Bhishma parva, 040.078)

gaṅgā gītā ca gāyatrī govindeti hṛdi sthite
caturgakārasaṃyukte punarjanma na vidyate

One who installs in his heart the four things namely the holy river Ganga, the Gita, Gayatri mantra and Lord Govinda, these four things starting with 'ga' kara(4 G), there is no more birth for him.

Ganga:- The river Ganga has washed the lotus feet of the Lord and also held in head of the greatest Vaishnava Lord Shiva and hence it's most purifying. One can get relieved of many sins by bathing in Ganga. One who does not have the chance to bathe in Ganga can drink the water or at least think of the river and receive benefits. And not only Ganga, many rivers revive their purity when devotees bath in them and give their association to the rivers. So even if one does not get a chance to come in contact with Ganga water, one can derive the same purifying effect by associating with devotees of the Lord. The association of devotees not only destroys the previous sins but also removes the tendency to commit sinful acts and hence makes us free from committing sins in the future also. Srila Prabhupada created this movement so that people can come and associate with devotees and give up their sinful tendencies.

G​ita:- Bhagavad Gita is an emanation from his lotus mouth and hence non-different from Him. The essence of Gita is to understand the Lord's greatness and surrender to Him. If one applies this principle in life, then he can be promoted to the spiritual world. So Srila Prabhupada gave the commentary on Gita with special emphasis on bhakti-yoga in a way even common people can practice the principles of bhakti-yoga and attain pure love of Godhead. He also preached it all over the world.

Krishna willing we will meditate on the remaining 2 Gs (Gayatri and Govinda) in the subsequent offering.

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
