So today we will recite 1st chatur Sloki Bhagavad Gita, can anybody recite ***11.8***

         

 ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo
mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate
iti matvā bhajante māṁ
budhā bhāva-samanvitāḥ
                                                                                                                    

mac-cittā mad-gata-prāṇā
bodhayantaḥ parasparam
kathayantaś ca māṁ nityaṁ
tuṣyanti ca ramanti ca

teṣāṁ satata-yuktānāṁ
bhajatāṁ prīti-pūrvakam
dadāmi buddhi-yogaṁ taṁ
yena mām upayānti te

teṣām evānukampārtham
aham ajñāna-jaṁ tamaḥ
nāśayāmy ātma-bhāva-stho
jñāna-dīpena bhāsvatā

ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo
mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate
iti matvā bhajante māṁ
budhā bhāva-samanvitāḥ

I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who perfectly know this engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts.

mac-cittā mad-gata-prāṇā
bodhayantaḥ parasparam
kathayantaś ca māṁ nityaṁ
tuṣyanti ca ramanti ca

The thoughts of My pure devotees dwell in Me, their lives are fully devoted to My service, and they derive great satisfaction and bliss from always enlightening one another and conversing about Me.

 

In Bhagavad Gita this is the only verse which describes the characteristics of the devotees, so this is very very important you know, you see the translation, how should we devotees should behave, the thoughts of my pure devotee dwell in me always, we don't think anything else but Krishna their life's are surrendered to me and they derive great satisfaction and bliss enlightening  one another and conversing about me. Lord, is a personal Lord me me he always says and we people, we are surrendered our life to him, that's why we derive great satisfaction and bliss enlightening one another about him, otherwise natural tendency is that, if we two people come together we talk about the 3rd person and always without fail we talk nonsense about him. So this should stop and we should follow this, the amount we are surrendered our life's to him, we derive great satisfaction and bliss enlightening one another and conversing about him, whom?

teṣāṁ satata-yuktānāṁ
bhajatāṁ prīti-pūrvakam
dadāmi buddhi-yogaṁ taṁ
yena mām upayānti te

In this verse dadāmi word is very important. Again we have the roots different verb, verbal roots in Sanskrit and dadā is one root and dadāmi is be 1st person singular, every every verb has 3 persons, 1st person, 2nd person and 3rd person. 1st person he who talks start talk, the 2nd person is he who hears, that is 2nd person and Iam talking and iam the 1st person, and thats why iam using i, iam talking to you that is 2nd person you, you are hearing. So you are the second person, we are talking about Him may be Krishna 'H' capital, so there is a 3rd person, this is how every verb have three person 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each person we have 3 numbers, as i told you, noun has 3 numbers the same way verb also having three numbers, there is singular number, then ***18.01*** for two and last one is plural for many. So each person is three forms, three numbers. So 3 multiplied 3, 3 persons multiplied by 3 numbers, so gives as 9 forms of the verb and out of the 9 forms this is the one form dadāmi,***18.26*** these are the 9 form and as i told you that we must know these things so we can know why this verb is used he there and dadāmi being the 1st person singular, person singular that is the speaker promise you and He says dadāmi i definitely give, i will give not i shall give, i will give. You understand the difference not i shall give is not future tense ordinary but he may stress on it dadāmi and he is promising and who is promising, Krishna is promising. I will cheat you, you may cheat me, but Krishna will never cheat us and he says the condition is teṣāṁ satata-yuktānāṁ those who are satata-yukt always engage in my devotional service and  bhajatāṁ prīti-pūrvakam and lovingly worship me. These are the two condition, then he says, if you do that dadāmi i give and what does he give ***19.33*** Knowledge very nice Bhudhi yoge, linking process with in that our own intelligence we link with him and that is that increases and then  yena mām upayānti te by which ***19.54*** this is the result, but conditions are, that we should be satata-yuktānāṁ and same time bhajatāṁ prīti-pūrvakam. ***20.04*** repeat the translation 

 

To those who are constantly devoted to serving Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me.

 

then we go to the last one

teṣām evānukampārtham
aham ajñāna-jaṁ tamaḥ
nāśayāmy ātma-bhāva-stho
jñāna-dīpena bhāsvatā

Out of compassion for them, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance. 

Now with this as i told you we have to be careful about 2.9.33 i.e. 33, 34, 35 and 36 four verses from Srimad Bhagavatam and these are the chatur Sloki Bhagavatam, so these four verses from Bhagavat Gita and four verses minimum from Srimad Bhagavatam, should be eight verses with us, you know ***21.50*** siksastakam and you daily recite siksastak, astak means eight , eight verses given by chaitanya mahaprabhu, the same thing the same way these 8 verses by Srila Vyasa Bhagavan should be ***22.06*** Please try to learn did i come next, so will see so recite 

 

with me...

 

om namo bhagavate vasudevaya 

om namo bhagavate vasudevaya

om namo bhagavate vasudevaya

 

SB 2.9.33

 

aham evāsam evāgre
nānyad yat sad-asat param 
paścād ahaṁ yad etac ca
yo ’vaśiṣyeta so ’smy aham 

Please repeat the translation

Brahmā, it is I, the Personality of Godhead, who was existing before the creation, when there was nothing but Myself. Nor was there the material nature, the cause of this creation. That which you see now is also I, the Personality of Godhead, and after annihilation what remains will also be I, the Personality of Godhead. 

SB 2.9.34

ṛte ’rthaṁ yat pratīyeta
na pratīyeta cātmani 
tad vidyād ātmano māyāṁ
yathābhāso yathā tamaḥ

 Now repeat the translation please

O Brahmā, whatever appears to be of any value, whatever appears to be of any value, if it is without relation to Me, has no reality , and it is true ***27.43*** Lord says,  O Brahmā, whatever appears to be of any value, if it is without relation to Me, has no reality, suppose this is a building, this was the building own somebody. Nobody look to it, we might have pass from this road we might have pass 1000 of times we never looked at to it. There are so many other buildings 100's of building we never stop and admire the building, no expect its historical value or something, otherwise we don't pay attention at all. That is the meaning and now every particularly Indians if they pass from here " O it's a mandir" this is natural, is it not natural ? you pass through any one, even Buddhist you know ***28.56*** this is temple, this is Buddhist temple and at least  a bit of ***29.01*** Krishna mandir, it is 100 year old O...O...  ***29.05***in our childhood it was a Muslim town you know we were staying and there was a nice krishna mandir in middle of the town, very opulent mandir and very humble ***29.20*** around you and that is the vedic way that we have a very opulent mandir ***29.25*** very simple, so these Muslim used to pass from mandir you know every time and they will take out there scandals , they will stand there turn around you know and ***29.39***, so this was the fact, otherwise they were the rulers they didn't do that, they didn't do that they were not allowed to the Temple, being the rulers they will not allowed into the Temple. Nobody objecting and at the same time everybody reveled Krishna that is the meaning of the verses " 

ṛte ’rthaṁ yat pratīyeta
na pratīyeta cātmani

whatever is valuable, you know
