    Without Bhagavatam, we can never survive, as without oxygen our health goes completely bad. And that’s why we want to avoid the pollution. The lesser pollution is there, the more healthy you are. This mind is polluted completely and in order to clear the mind, Bhagavatam is required day and night.

    Control your eating to a very simple food; kichari is the best. Just you mix rice and dhal and put it on a gas fire and within ten minutes it will be ready. And whatever you can put inside you put otherwise take it nicely with butter or ghee. And it is a full food, whole meal, it is a whole meal.

    As you go to Krishna, He will reciprocate. Please, please come to your senses as soon as possible. And this is liberation.

    . If the weeds grow, then weeds consume the water and there is no sufficient water for the main growth. So, those weeds we have to uproot, and there are five in number. Please remember these weeds, so that our live become completely without the weeds. And then the creeper of bhakti grows very fast. And it goes on, goes on, goes on growing till it reaches Goloka Vrindavan at the lotus feet of Krishna

    Our body is under His control also. Our mind is also under His control. Nothing we have to do, we just have to do one thing, that somehow or other we have to get attached to Him, that’s it.

    We many times commit mistakes that we are discussing Bhagavatam and then Krishna is somewhere else. No, Krishna is situated here (Maharaj refers to Bhagavatam). Please be serious about this. This scripture is completely non-different from Krishna. And being non-different from Krishna, it has the full capacity to make you at ease. So, if you are really diseased, then this is the medicine. You are not at ease, so you come here, and you are at ease, so you are not diseased. This is the main remedy, please try this remedy, no after effect.

    So, if you want to be at ease, then have a nice verse. Why to visit the doctors and go mad after them and they become mad after you. They cut your purse and then cut your heart. (laughter).

    Don’t mow, your bad qualities, don’t mow. Or your miseries don’t mow, you uproot them; unmūlanam, tāpa-trayonmūlanam. śrīmad-bhāgavate mahā-muni-kṛte kiṁ vā parair īśvaraḥ, why are we running about anything else, this is the main thing.

    And these transcendental verses, they are not the dead material, please take it. Why we are wasting our time, I don’t know. Why can’t we learn, why can’t we cultivate some love. Why are we running after so many other things. If you run after Him, He will arrange everything. He does everything. We don’t do anything.

    The devotee, however, is not disturbed by such desires, because of his fullness. A Kṛṣṇa conscious man is not in need of anything, because the Lord fulfills all his material necessities. Therefore he is like the ocean – always full in himself. Desires may come to him like the waters of the rivers that flow into the ocean, but he is steady in his activities, and he is not even slightly disturbed by desires for sense gratification.

    O Lord, the conditioning of one’s personality in material life is very strong, and therefore it is very difficult even for learned men to tolerate the offenses committed against them by ignorant people. Only Your devotees, who are fixed in Your loving service and who have achieved peace by residing at Your lotus feet, are able to tolerate such offences

    Kṛṣṇa is independent svarat, he is nija-lābha-pūrṇaḥ, always complete in Himself. So when we imitate Kṛṣṇa, we want to be complete in ourselves without the help of Kṛṣṇa, this is called māyā. Māyā means that we want to imitate Kṛṣṇa

    When we take darshan of the Deity, when we chant the holy names, meditate on the different prayers of exalted devotees in Srimad Bhagavatam, study the scriptures, etc, if we can somehow or other try to fix our mind exclusively on Krishna, that is when Krishna’s grace flow into us and thereby release us from the clutches of our māyā manah.

    The saintly brāhmaṇa said: Everyone considers certain things within the material world to be most dear to him, and because of attachment to such things one eventually becomes miserable. One who understands this gives up material possessiveness and attachment and thus achieves unlimited happiness.

    So wherever we go, may be don’t know really according to our karma, we may have to accept some bodies here and there. But even then the tendency will be there. That even if you are a horse, you will be a good horse. Even if you are pig you will be a good pig. This good tendency should be there. Otherwise whatever we have, we have to carry

     You don't know where are you going, why we are doing, because we are completely ignorant of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita and Bhagavatam, completely ignorant of so much treasure our saints and sages have left. And fortunately Prabhupada has chewed  it and presented it into semi-liquid form so that we can swallow it. But we are so very lazy that semi-liquid is in the mouth, but we can't open the jaws.
