“It is said, asya mahato bhūtasya niśvasitam etad yad ṛg-vedo yajur-vedaḥ sāma-vedo ’tharvāṅgirasaḥ. “The four Vedas – namely the Ṛg Veda, Yajur Veda, Sāma Veda and Atharva Veda – are all emanations from the breathing of the great Personality of Godhead.” (Bṛhad-āraṇyaka Upaniṣad 4.5.11) The Lord, being omnipotent, can speak by breathing air, for as it is confirmed in the Brahma-saṁhitā, the Lord has the omnipotence to perform through each of His senses the actions of all other senses. In other words, the Lord can speak through His breathing, and He can impregnate by His eyes. In fact, it is said that He glanced over material nature and thus fathered all living entities. After creating or impregnating the conditioned souls into the womb of material nature, He gave His directions in the Vedic wisdom as to how such conditioned souls can return home, back to Godhead”

Surrender is the Basis

Published on Jun 28, 2013

Srila Bhakti Sadhaka Muni Maharaja reads and comments on the book of Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Gosvami Maharaja – “Loving Search for the Lost Servant” in Sridham Mayapur, February 2013

The topics of the discourse are the following: Faith in the higher plane * The foundation of devotion is self-surrender * A devotee depends wholly on Krsna * Selfishness and extended selfishness * Our false ego must be finished * Enjoyment and renunciation are abnormal * Everything is for Krsna’s pleasure – nothing is for our pleasure * See the environment with proper vision * We can be in Krsna’s lila wherever we are * Connection with Krsna means life – disconnection means death * I’m moving according to His desire * The ticket to that plane is whole self-sacrifice * As long as I don’t forget Krsna, I can accept everything * May we never be separated from pure devotee * The example of Bharata Maharaja * Without association of Krsna

In the first paragraph of Chapter 35 of Krsna Book (The Gopis’ Feelings of Separation) Srila Prabhupada writes:

“The gopis of Vrndavana were so attached to Krsna that they were not satisfied simply with the rasa dance at night. They wanted to associate with Him and enjoy His company during the daytime also. When Krsna went to the forest with His cowherd boy friends and cows, the gopis did not physically take part, but their hearts went with Him. And because their hearts went, they were able to enjoy His company through strong feelings of separation. To acquire this strong feeling of separation is the teaching of Lord Caitanya and His direct disciplic succession of Gosvamis. When we are not in physical contact with Krsna, we can associate with Him like the gopis, through feelings of separation. ”

Krishna is not an ordinary boy. He is an incarnation of lord vishnu-the supreme personality of godhead. Krishna has no birth and no death. Some people are mistaken, they think “how can krishna be god? He has taken birth from the womb of mother devaki, so why is he called god? He is a human"The answer to this is explained in ‘bhagvad gita- as it is’ by A.C.Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada , krishna is infinite, he is eternal, he has no birth and no death. Krishna isn’t actually born, he appeared in the form of a child, to mother devki and father vasu, who were caged by his uncle kansa in 'Mathura’. Krishna was misunderstood to be a normal child by his uncle kansa, and he tried to kill krishna. And at the end krishna killed his demonic uncle kansa.

Hare Krishna! “As It Is”
We might take the “As It Is” in our Bhagavad-gita title for granted. All authors want to be different and original. With many versions of Bhagavad-gita already available, Srila Prabhupada’s “As It Is” addition was a very bold and provocative one. He is saying, “this is it, how it should be, the definitive and genuine Bhagavad-gita”. Who else can claim this with confidence? Considering that there are many ways of looking at Krishna’s song of wisdom, and studying it from different angles of vision, it is all the more brazen to say, “As It Is”. What confidence Srila Prabhupada had. It was not blind confidence that sought to be different and original for the sake of it. Though “As It Is” appeared to be different and original, his conviction was such that he could say how God spoke Bhagavad-gita. This chimes with his ability to say, “this is a fact, and that is a fact”.

So there may be disturbances, rather we may say there should be. Disturbance must come, because my most beloved guru has withdrawn from amongst us. Should we like to live peacefully? Such a great curse, as it may be called, is thrown on my head, and should I like to live peacefully? In its retinue, disturbance must come, and we are to undergo them. But we must remain sincere, and we must face the difficulty in a proper way. That has come to train me to go in the right direction.

Excerpt from “The Environment is Your Friend”

Hare Krishna! The Government’s Duty: To Teach Krishna Consciousness
Krishna conscious government leaders and educators should be tolerant and compassionate. For example, a Krishna conscious leader should encourage the Muslims to become better Muslims and the Christians to become better Christians, all the while understanding that different spirit souls influenced by various combinations of the modes of nature may need more time to come to the platform of pure devotional service, the true religion of the soul. As Srila Prabhupada explains, we should encourage everyone in their particular faith, making sure that they are at least following the tenets laid down by their particular prophets. This would undoubtedly lead to a peaceful situation in the world.
