According to Niti sastra, one should not speak an unpalatable truth to cause distress to others. Distress comes upon us in its own way by the laws of nature, so one should not aggravate it by propaganda
His Divine Grace has really put his heart and soul for each verse and word to word translation. His commitment to the service is so marvellous that he simply continued it even when he was lying on his death bed.
The established rule is that whatever we do, whatever we eat, whatever we sacrifice or whatever we give in charity must be done to the full satisfaction of the Lord. No one should do anything, eat anything, sacrifice anything or give anything in charity against the will of the Lord.
This vedic literatures have, give the eternal values. And those eternal values cannot be changed by anybody. All the, religious literature in the world, they have to include Bhagavatam in it. Whatever is good is always Bhagavatam
This Bhagavatam creates very nice atmosphere in our own house, in our own life. That's why Bhagavatam should be life and death for us. Otherwise we are nowhere. Krishna will (not clear) become. Please try to put into practice. Don't look. But behave.
This concocting and egoistic attitude destroys the suhrt in us. Please try to understand this and one word if you can remember please, then you can put into practice. Then you will be very happy. And the egoistic activity will be completely destroyed
We cannot tolerate even a single thing. We have our own notions and our own concoctions. And because of concoction, we destroy the whole thing. There is nothing but we concoct. And we create the atmosphere which is not there.
as I told you in this whirlpool of material existence we should try to put Bhagavatam into practice. So we should always be krtajna. You know our parents have done so much for us. Why can't we show our gratefulness? Our teachers have done so much, community has done so much, saints and sages have done so much, how can we not be grateful?
I remember in our town,there were rich persons, there were poor also. But never envy was there. Envious nature was not there. It was his lot, that he had ten fields. Our lot is we only have two fields, doesn't matter.
Whether you collect, just with thousand hands, if He gives or takes with thousand hands, how much can you hold with two hands? And if He gives you with thousand hands, how much you can collect with two hands? So our endeavours are really, really not very useful.
If you follow, definitely He will be kind, knowing that you are obedient son. He will never, never punish you. He will really be with you always. And if He is with you, then whatever material situation may come to you, He's there definitely with you
fāv se, gam se, chāl se - Just go ahead. That's it. Please these are the few things to be remembered. Then the whole, the main values of Bhagavatam will definitely sink into our mind. Because you are obeying Krishna, the more you obey Krishna through Bhagavatam, the more He will come to you.
If somebody comes and beats us then we can catch his hand. But some one talks about us what can we do? (Gurudev laughs). We have to bear with that. So the Bhagavatam says that you should be kind to him.
Two people come they always talk about the third one. And again we happened to talk to him we'll criticize the one ( not clear). So everytime the criticism is in our mind. So we are not afraid to criticize. Because we are not attracted to these higher values.
To honour the boons of Lord Brahma, I need to tolerate this for sometime." Honouring the weapon of Brahmaji, the two sons of the venerable Dasaratha, allowed themselves to be knocked down by the missiles of Indrajit.
The Supreme Lord is situated everywhere, and wherever He is situated is His temple. We even offer respects to a temple from a distant place, and all living entities should similarly be offered respect.
The arrows that we have already shot, they have gone through our hands. We cannot control it now. You could have thought before the arrow is shot. Now once the arrow is shot, you should wait for the consequences. Whatever activities we have done, it cannot be changed to 'not done'. But it has to be suffered.
Devotees, when they start criticising each other, they start losing interest in mangala arati, then they start losing interest in Bhagavatam, they start losing interest in chanting and one day they just go out of the door. Finish. Atleast for one's own self interest and peace of mind, we should not disrespect others. But just offer all respect to them
