The following is in conclusion of the previous offerings transcribing the wonderful and practically instructive class delivered by our beloved Gurudev HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj in New Vrindavana USA
"Wealth, lands, farms, cattle, spouse will not accompany us in our final journey. Friends and relatives will accompany us only till the grave. Body will be with us only till funeral pyre. Whatever you have heard or remembered about Krishna will accompany you. Otherwise nothing accompanies us."
Few months ago, we went to Jagannath Puri. There we happened to see couple of people in the temple who were physically blind. Looking at them, I was simply amazed by their eagerness and sincere devotion with which they have come to the temple inspite of this difficulty
In the last offerings we saw:
1. The attitude of humility by the exalted devotee Uddhava
2. The attitude of unmotivated devotional service leads to uninterrupted devotional service
3. The attitude of service that never slackens
4. The attitude of being mature and complete in service
5. There is no fatigue in transcendental service
6. Intense and intact remembrance of Krishna makes us pacified and purified
This is in continuation of the previous offerings transcribing the class by HG Devakinandan prabhuji on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 3.2.3 wherein he shared the points spoken by our beloved Gurudev HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj.
When a fruit is not ripe, it will not taste nice. Mature service means the service that Uddhava did. Despite the breaking down of the body, his mood for service increases more with the progress of age.
"Uddhava thus served the Lord continually from childhood, and in his old age that attitude of service never slackened. As soon as he was asked about the message of the Lord, he at once remembered all about Him."
In the last offering we saw the attitude of humility by the exalted devotee Uddhava. Now we continue with the other points.
The following is a humble effort to transcribe the class by HG Devakinandan prabhuji on Srimad Bhagavatam verse 3.2.3 wherein he shared the points spoken by our beloved Gurudev HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj.
In the last offering on this topic we saw how Hiranyakashipu was considering Lord Vishnu and His servants as his deadly enemies and how beautifully Prahlad Maharaj pointed our that other than our uncontrolled and misguided mind there is no enemy in this entire universe.
Many a times we perform devotional service for show and we think that we are deceiving others. But reality is we are deceiving our ownselves by that action and loss is only for us as we would simply have to continue with the painful cycle of birth and death again and again by our sinful actions
About a year ago on 12th Feb 2011, H G Devakinandan prabhu gave a class in the residence of H G Vaishnava seva prabhu in Rajkot. This was a class on BG 1.45-46 and Prabhuji shared with us a recollection of the original class given by our spiritual master H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj several years ago in Dwaraka on this verse.
Day in and day out we are involved in so many kinds of activities in this material world. The nature of these activities, the type of people with whom we have to interact all vary and they have a gross and subtle effect on our consciousness. Sometimes we have very good experience and sometimes we have difficult situations.
Recently we celebrated the most auspicious day of Narasimha Jayanthi (appearance day of Bhagavan Narasimha). The glories of Bhagavan Narasimha are infinite and one such glory is that His form is very wonderful being a fusion of lion and man. We all have heard about the 7 wonders of the world and recently one organization in Swiss has brought out "New 7 wonders of the world" where some of the items from the old list have been removed and new ones have been included and some have been retained from the Old list like Taj Mahal
This is in conclusion of the transcription of the nectarean, thought provoking class given by our beloved spiritual master H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on June 2008 in Govardhan Kunj, London on Bhagavad Gita verse 7.28.
Today is the auspicious day of appearance of Lord Nrisimhadeva. Lord Nrisimhadeva appeared only to keep the words of His beloved devotee Prahlad Maharaj. Otherwise He has already protected Prahlad in number of occasions from his father's attempt to kill him

We have been meditating on glorifying the Lord in the offerings titled, "108 Ways of Glorifying the Lord". In the last few offerings, we were seeing few of the glories of Lord mentioned in verse 8 of Isopanishad. Now we move on to verse 16 of the Isopanishad.
