He is Serving - Part 2

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 of the nectarean class given by HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Bhagavad Gita verse 11.47 in Rajkot Sri Sri Radha Neel Madhav temple:

śrī-bhagavān uvāca
mayā prasannena tavārjunedaṁ
rūpaṁ paraṁ darśitam ātma-yogāt
tejo-mayaṁ viśvam anantam ādyaṁ
yan me tvad anyena na dṛṣṭa-pūrvam

The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear Arjuna, happily have I shown you, by My internal potency, this supreme universal form within the material world. No one before you has ever seen this primal form, unlimited and full of glaring effulgence.

In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj how in reality we are not serving, but we are being served by Krishna. Now let us continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj.

2. Service is His mercy: As devotees we are in complete illusion that, "I am serving Krishna". You are not serving Krishna. Only by getting up at 4'o clock, He serves you a little bit in the later lives. This is the way to be happy, healthy, wealthy and wise. And in order to be happy, healthy and wise, you have to give up this ahankār because it is Krishna's will. So please remember this. Unless we don't get puffed up that 'I am doing, I am doing', this ahankār - this false-ego that, "I am serving", we cannot go near Him. This false-ego should be avoided completely. We are not doing anything. Everything is being done for us.

You just have bit of inclination to Krishna and see He is immediately serving. A bit of inclination to chanting and then devotees welcome you and they say, "You are chanting. Come, come. So please clean this hall." You clean and then you think, "I am serving". But you are not serving. Krishna is helping you to do the service. The menial service also is Krishna's mercy. Otherwise as it is services, plenty of services are there. Menial services are available. When we ignore it, we suffer. He is the integral part of the whole entourage. If yo are cleaning the bed room, it means that He has allowed you to clean the bed room. If you are cleaning the sitting room, it means that Krishna has allowed you to clean the sitting room. Krishna has allowed us to enter here and clean. His allowing is the most important thing. He is allowing us through His internal potency. Otherwise He will kick us and we will be sitting outside and then nobody can sleep over here. This is power of internal potency.   

Krishna willing we shall continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Sudarshana devi dasi.
