"There Is Another Nature"

66/11/18 New York, Bhagavad-gita 8.20-22

Prabhupada punch:

So everyone should try to go there. God Himself comes to call you, He sends His son to call you, and the literatures are there, the scriptures are there. We should take advantage of this. This is meant for human body, human life, not for the cats and dogs. So we should take advantage of it. Human life is meant for that achievement. When we finish all this trouble... This trouble of repeating birth and death, the cycle of birth and death, this should be stopped. This is the information of Bhagavad-gita. This is the perfection. Any system, either yoga system or jnana system or bhakti system -- anything, if you... Whatever you like, you can accept, but the ultimate goal is this paramam gatim. If this is not achieved, then all yoga exercise and all philosophical speculation -- all nonsense, simply waste of time, simply a waste of time. Aradhito yadi haris tapasa tatah kim. If you can achieve this stage, that there is no other necessity of philosophizing or yogic practice or anything, if you receive that, if you reach that perfection. And if you do not reach that perfection, then it is all useless.

So aradhito yadi haris tapasa tatah kim. Naradhito yadi haris tapasa tatah kim: "One who reaches there, for him, all kinds of penances, austerities -- no more required. And one who does not reach that place, all these austerities, penances -- useless, simply waste of time." So this should be the aim of human life. Human civilization, human society, should be so formed that they should have the opportunity. The human form of life is the opportunity to get this boon. So it is the duty of the state, duty of the parents, duty of the guardians, duty of the husband, duty of the father -- everyone's duty is how to elevate a living creature who has got this fortunate human form of life to understand this paramam gatim, highest perfection of life. That should be the mode of thing. Simply have some eating and sleeping and mating and some defense and quarreling like cats and dogs -- this is not civilization. The human civilization is this, that he should properly utilize this human form of life and take advantage of this knowledge and prepare himself in Krsna consciousness so that always, twenty-four hours, cent percent, he will be absorbed in Krsna and at the time of death at once transferred there. This should be the process of life. Therefore we have taken this movement, Krsna consciousness. Join us. Cooperate with us. You'll... Yourself will be benefited, and the world will be benefited, this Krsna consciousness.

Just like if there is electric energy, you can light up any lamp from anywhere, similarly, if we are progressive, if we are advanced in devotional service, we can see God everywhere, anywhere. We require to be qualified. Premanjana-cchurita-bhakti-vilocanena santah sadaiva hrdayesu vilokayanti [Bs. 5.38]. Those who developed that love of God, they are constantly, twenty-four hours, seeing God before him. Santah sadaiva. Sadaiva means twenty-four hours, constantly. Not that "Oh, I have seen God yesterday night. Now He is not." No. He is always with you. God is everywhere. You can see Krsna everywhere. But we have to develop that eyes.

Your fallen servant,
Murlidhara das
