Prabhupada’s instructions

Monday, 28 June 2010 / Published in Blog thoughts / 2,455 views

Krishna kirtana dasi: Dear devotees, Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and his enthusiastic servants!

We are today sending more excerpts of Srila Prabhupada’s lecture, given on August 1973, in London, on verse 9 of the second chapter of Bhagavad-gita.

“… To serve Him, not to help Him. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu doesn’t require anyone’s help. But if we try to associate and try to serve Him, then our life becomes successful…

So these rascals should stop all this nonsense business. ‘Sarva-dharman parityajya': ‘Give up all this nonsense; simply just become surrendered unto Me’. This is religion…

Religion means ‘dharmam tu saksat bhagavat-pranitam’, the order of the Supreme Lord. If we do not know who is the Supreme Lord, if we do not know what is the order of the Supreme Lord, then where is religion? That is not religion. That may go on in the name of religion, but that is cheating…

Bhagavata begins, ‘dharmah projjhita-kaitavah atra': ‘Now, in this shrimad-Bhagavatam, all cheating type of religions are rejected, ‘projjhita’. So there is a link. Real religion means to love God; that is real religion. Therefore Bhagavata says:’sa vai pumsam paro dharmo yato bhaktir adhksaje’. That is first-class religion… But you have to test…

One must see whether he has learned this art: how to love God. That’s all… Only ‘nirmatsaranam': ‘Those who are not envious of God’…

‘Why shall I love God? Why shall I worship God? Why shall I accept God?': they are all demons. For them only, ‘Shrimad-Bhagavatam’, for them only those who are actually serious to love: ‘ahaituki apratihata yenatma samprasidati’.

So real success of life is that when you learned how to love God. Then your heart will be satisfied… If you want real satisfaction, then you must love Krishna, or God. That is the whole philosophy of …, Vedic philosophy…

Therefore, that religion is first-class which teaches, which trains the candidate how to love God. That is first-class religion. ‘Sa vai pumsam paro dharmo yato bhaktih’… and that love not with a motive…

‘Ahaituky apratihata… no motive. Anyabhilasita shunyam: all other desires making zero. Zero… So, bhakti is transcendental… Not tinted by all these contamination… Similarly, if you are thinking of Krishna… immediately ‘tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti kaunteya’. This is Krishna consciousness: how to train the mind to die thinking of Krishna. Then your life is successful. Therefore, we have to chant ‘Hare Krishna’, always think of Krishna: ‘Man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru. Then your life is perfect. Thank you very much.” (end)

I humbly beg to serve you eternally Krishna kirtana dasi
