Jadurani dd: Yes, Srila Prabhupada was given poison ...




[PADA: Unfortunately, Narayana Maharaja then became the darling of Tamal's guru bhoghi party, and he supported the idea that the 11 GBC are gurus. There are also a group of bone heads out there who say "no one listens to PADA," well maybe at least some folks do. We are the original persons who published the 1977 poison tapes audio and transcripts publicly, and it seems many other people are now catching up to speed on this issue. ys pd]

Belfast Deities Stolen (Update)


Demons were always trying to steal Krishna from Mother Yasoda



Belfast Deities Stolen

BY: MADHAVA DAS

This is in response to "Radha Madhava are welcomed to ISKCON Leicester" from the Dandavats website managed by Pragosh das.

[PADA: Right, the GBC's front man and web site manager is really one of their worst agent provocateurs, namely Praghosa dasa. This is the same guy who teased the little Mayapura children that he was building them a playground, then he said this was a joke, and so they all started crying. The local Bengalis also wanted him removed from Mayapura for all sorts of reasons. Praghosa is also a big defender of the GBC's illicit sex, drugs and criminality guru sampradaya. Right, Krishna's successors are often debauchees, who knew! Lovely!] 

May I first say that I feel disgusted that Pragosh (the GBC member who stole the Deities) is stating that he has known Sri Sri Radha Madhava since 1983. Pragosh in 1983 was working as a postman in London and it was not until 1985 that he traveled back to Ireland and joined the Hare Krishna movement full-time prior to helping out in Govinda's Restaurant in London.

Pragosh aka Paul Murphy is also claiming, according to this article, that "In an exchange of love, ISKCON Leicester has given their Panca Tattva Deities to ISKCON Belfast, in a solid expression of gratitude." This is simply nothing but lies and spin to convince the reader that this act took place without any argument. The Leicester Temple did not wish to part with their bas relief of the Pancha Tattva, which they had for a long period of time. Pragosh forced the temple authorities to hand Them over to Belfast as some sort of a consolation prize to pacify the disappointed devotees for forcing the Belfast community to surrender their Deities.

[PADA: Right, so both communities were attacked. Of course the Philadelphia devotees had to fight the GBC to get rid of Ravindra; the NYC temple is kicking out people for protesting the sale of that building; the Phoenix temple has been fighting the GBC for kicking out 30 people; the Vancouver temple kicked out their best kirtana people and they had to make their own program; and there are communities up in arms over the GBC in Australia and etc. OK, this is all really good news, the citizens are finally taking action to defend themselves from these exploiters. (A little late in the game, but something is better than nothing).] 
The Belfast Deities were not however exchanged. The Belfast community did not want to let Them go and had an awaiting court order about to begin which would have prevented Them from being taken. 

[PADA: Take the GBC to court, excellent idea.]

Hence Pragosh and his useful idiots had to sneak into the temple under the cover of darkness and steal Them while the temple devotees were sleeping and when the congregation were not around. When the pujari awoke and alerted the other resident devotees nothing but screaming, crying and sobbing could be heard from most of the devotees living in the temple. 

[PADA: Yep, the Prabhupada devotees, the gurukulis, and their own disciples, are often screaming and crying at the atrocities the GBC engages in. That is what Srila Prabhupada says, wherever the demons are, the devotees are crying.]

Some were hysterical and unable to speak due to the fright of the Deities disappearance from the alter so suddenly. The police were summoned but it was too late to catch them. So to say that the exchange was "loving" completely insults the Belfast community, who did not want their beloved Sri Sri Radha Madhava to leave their care after 30 years. Using this phrase is a disgusting attempt to hide the actual reality and make it out to appear that all went well.

The biggest slap in the face to the community was by mentioning in the Dandavats article that "Praghosa Dasa, GBC for the UK said: "Having known Radha Madhava since 1983, I cannot remember a more auspicious and blissful event in Their association than today in Leicester."

Wow!!! This man, who is respected by so few in his own Yatra and who conveniently hides himself away from most of the Irish community like an absent landlord, rarely took the opportunity to ever come visit these particular Forms of the Lord. Pragosh has been known to come visit them every 5 to 6 years to simply bow his head and quickly disappear. 

He has been rarely seen or present in Belfast while most of the congregation have heard about him, but never seen him. So to claim that a relationship was in place is yet another form of spin to convince his innocent audience in Leicester that he is emotionally attached. This is simply condescending and further insulting to those who actually did develop a loving and tangible relationship with Them based upon Seva. Pragosh's desire to distract and take most of the credit for himself begs belief.

[PADA: That is also what happened here in San Francisco and other places. Swarupa Damodara was the guru, and he showed up here once every two years, so some of his disciples were smoking pot and etc. and no one was here to guide them. Its absentee managing, which never really works. You need to have local people doing local managing, not to have some "guru" or GBC who has a giant million square miles of "zone" that he simply cannot oversee due to its size ... of course its better that theses gurus and GBC never visit in many cases because then they create chaos when they visit. Gunagrahi's disciple for example told me that the worst times that they had in South America was when their guru would visit, and he would turn everything upside down and create mayhem, including breaking up marriages and destroying families.]

The Deities were taken not because Their standard of worship was in question. (I will write a further article later to dispute this allegation and have it endorsed by the community.) They were taken to appease a Hindu community who had the capacity of giving large donations to Pragosh's institution and as a catalyst to close down the Belfast Temple, knowing that after the removal of the Deities the temple could be wound down in view of selling (more on this point later.)

The Belfast community has also learnt from Leicester sources that when Pragosh and his obedient Belfast management team do eventually close the community of devotees temple here in Belfast, that the Pancha Tattva bas relief will also be going back to its original home in Leicester, which was also another form of deception. Hence the Leicester management agreed that their bas relief of Pancha Tattva may go to Belfast but only as a temporary measure, knowing someday they would have it returned, while the Belfast community would be left with absolutely nothing they have worked hard for in over 30 years.

This must be the greatest insult to any local Vaisnava community in recent years. Only the attempted sale of the New York temple saga in recent months takes precedence. The deception and the underhanded means of the GBC to achieve their outcomes in both cases is quite astonishing.

[PADA: Well the GBC has been kicking out devotees, and selling farms, houses and buildings for years together. I am glad some folks are finally catching on to this scam. Hansadutta closed the Seattle temple and stole those large Radha and Krishna deities, who are now residing under a carport, this has been going on for decades, wake up people! ys pd]

Celebrities who are Vegetarian ...

Kanhaiya by Farid Ayaz (video)


Srila Prabhupada's Vyas Pooja Worldwide

https://theharekrishnamovement.org/2016/08/27/vyasa-puja-2016/

[PADA: Yes, prabhu, Srila Prabhupada is more and more having the main -- or only -- Vyasa pooja programs in many ISKCON temples worldwide. We do not see that much of the GBC's gurus getting their Vyas poojas anymore, that program is clearly dwindling. So yes, our idea of emphasis on Srila Prabhupada is sort of happening through the back door. After all, how many people actually believe the GBC -- that the "guru successors" to Vyasa are often degraded debauchees, sexual predators, drug addicts, drunkards and criminals? 

The GBC will probably never fully admit that we were right all along to say that the real guru for ISKCON is Srila Prabhupada, but these festivals for Srila Prabhupada are clearly getting more emphasis and festivals for their living gurus are fading, dwindling, disappearing, and that's all there is to it. 

We hope the devotees in Belfast and other places like NYC temple where they are harassing the congregation, trying to more or remove their deities, sell their buildings etc. can get their own independent buildings, deities and programs going. As the GBC's false guru ship sinks more and more, we may see them sell more buildings, put more deities in storage or under carports, so they can pocket more money on their way out the door. 

We have already had to start independent programs in places like Bangalore, Vancouver, Montreal and many other places even though there is an ISKCON temple there, because they are still forbidding the exclusive worship of HDG Srila Prabhupada. We need to become more independent, and that process is also happening more and more as well. In any case, the GBC's illicit sex acharyas program is going to sink to the bottom of the ocean sooner or later, its just a question of time. ys pd]

Not A Good Time to Bother God

Birth of Lord Krishna (video)


Engaging Beautiful Women in Krishna's Service (NOD)




Nectar of Devotion

A devotee should try to engage all beautiful women in the service of Krsna. That is his duty. Not to enjoy them. That is sense gratification.The Nectar of Devotion -- Vrndavana, November 11, 1972:

As soon as we are in Krsna consciousness, our seeing, touching, smelling—everything become nirmala, purified. Then we can immediately see Krsna. These eyes, so long it is not purified, we cannot see Krsna. As soon as it is purified, you'll see Krsna. And you'll see Krsna, nothing but Krsna. So this is the process. So devotional service means purification.

sarvopadhi-vinirmuktamtat-paratvena nirmalamhrsikena hrsikesa-sevanam bhaktir ucyate (CC Madhya 19.170)

anyabhilasita-sunyam jnana-karmady-anavrtamanukulyena krsnasu-silanam bhaktir uttama (Brs. 1.1.11)

So Cupid, Cupid is one of the agents of this material, illusory energy, but if we are perfectly in Krsna consciousness, this Cupid cannot pierce with his arrows. That is not possible. As Yamunacārya says, that tadavadhi mama cetah krsna -pa..., yadavadhi mama cetah krsna - padaravindo... 

So to a devotee... Just like Haridasa Thakura. You know the story of Haridasa Thakura. Haridasa Thakura was young man, and the Maya, and a prostitute, they came, young prostitute, nicely dressed, and proposed her desire. Haridasa Thakura said, "Yes, please sit down. I shall fulfill your desire. Let me finish my chanting." Just see. At dead of night, a young man, Haridasa Thakura; in front, there is a beautiful young girl; there is nobody else; and she's proposing. 

But still, he's steady, chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare. So Cupid cannot pierce. This is the example. There may be thousands of beautiful women before a devotee, but that does not disturb his mind. He sees they're all energies of Krsna. "They are gopīs of Krsna. They are enjoyable by Krsna. I have to serve them. They're gopis. Because I am servant of the servant." 

Gopi - bhartuh pada-kamalayoh dasa-dasa-dasanudasah (CC Madhya 13.80). So a devotee should try to engage all beautiful women in the service of Krsna. That is his duty. Not to enjoy them. That is sense gratification. This is the position of a devotee. He's not pierced by the arrows of Cupid, but he sees everything, nirbandhe krsna - sambandhe. He sees everything in relationship with Krsna. Yukta-vairagyam ucyate. That is vairagyam. He does not accept anything for his sense gratification, but he engages everyone in the service of Krsna. Then we can get out of the influence of the arrow of Cupid. This is the process.

Advent of Lord Krishna (by Srila Prabhupada)



London, August 21, 1973

Prabhupada: (chants mangalacarana prayers) His Excellency, the High Commissioner; ladies and gentlemen, I thank you very much for your coming here and participating in this ceremony, Janmastami, advent of Krishna. The subject matter I’ve been ordered to speak on is advent of Krishna. Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita,

janma karma me divyam yo janati tattvatah tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti kaunteya

This fact, that we can achieve such a stage of life when we can stop our birth and death… Sa ’mrtatvaya kalpate. This morning, I was explaining this verse:
yam hi na vyathayanty ete purusam purusarsabha sama-duhkha-sukham dhiram so ’mrtatvaya kalpate

Amrtatva means immortality. So the modern civilization, they have no idea, either the great philosopher, great politician or great scientist, that it is possible to attain the stage of immortality. Amrtatva. We are all amrta. In the Bhagavad-gita it is said, na jayate na mriyate va kadacin. 

We living entities, we never die, never take birth. Nityah sasvato yam, na hanyate hanyamane sarire Every one of us, we are eternal, nityah sasvato; Purana, the oldest. And after annihilation of this body, we do not die. Na hanyate. The body is finished, but I have to accept another body. Tatha dehantara praptir dhiras tatra na muhyati. Dehino ’smin yatha dehe kaumaram yauvanaṁ jara.

This simple thing, at the present moment, they are lacking knowledge, that we, all living entities, part and parcel of Krishna, we are eternal, we are blissful, and we are cognizant. Krishna is described in the Vedic sastras:
īsvaraḥ paramaḥ Krishnah sac-cid-ananda-vigrahah anadir adir govindah sarva-karana-karanam

Sac-cid-ananda-vigrahah. God, Krishna, when I speak Krishna, that means God. If there is any important name… God, it is sometimes said God has no name. That’s a fact. But God’s name is given by His activities. Just like Krishna accepted the sonhood of Maharaja Nanda, or Yasodamayi, or Devaki, or Vasudeva. Vasudeva and Devakī were Krishna’s real father and mother. 

Nobody is real father and mother of Krishna, because Krishna is the original father of everyone. But when Krishna comes here, advents, He accepts some devotees as His father, as His mother. Krishna is the original, adi-purusam. Adyam Purana- purusam nava-yauvanaṁ ca He is the original person. 

Then must be very old? No. Adyam purana purusam nava-yauvanam ca. Always fresh youth. That is Krishna. When Krishna was on the battlefield of Kurukṣetra, you have seen the picture, He’s just like a boy of twenty years or, at most, twenty-four years old. But at that time, He had great-grandchildren. Therefore, Krishna is always youth. Navayauvanam ca. These are the statements of Vedic literatures.

advaitam acyutam anadim ananta-rupam adyam purana-purusam nava-yauvanam ca vedesu durlabhaṁ adurlabham atma-bhaktau


So, to understand Krishna, simply if we read as a formality the Vedic literature, it will be very difficult to understand what is Krishna. Vedesu durlabham. Although all the Vedas are meant for understanding Krishna. In the Bhagavad-gita, it is said, vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyo. Aham eva vedyo. What is the use of studying Vedas if you do not understand Krishna? Because the ultimate goal of education means to understand the Supreme Lord, the supreme father, the supreme cause. 

As it is said in the Vedanta- sutra, janmady asya yatah. Athato brahma jijnasa. Brahma-jijnasa, to discuss about the Supreme Absolute Truth, Brahman. What is that Brahman? Janmady asya yatah. That Brahman means wherefrom everything emanates. So science, philosophy, means to find out the ultimate cause of everything. That we are getting from the sastras, Vedic literature, that Krishna is the cause of all causes. Sarva-karana-karanam . Sarva-karana-karanam.

isvarah paramah Krishnah sac-cid-ānanda-vigrahah anadir adir govindah sarva-karana-karanam


Cause of all causes. Just like try to understand. I am caused by my father. My father is caused by his father. He is caused by his father, his father… Go on searching, then you’ll ultimately come to somebody who is the cause. But He has no cause. Anadir adir govindah I may be cause of my son, but I am also result of the cause, my father. But the sastra says that anadir adir, He is the original person, but He has no cause. That is Krishna. Therefore, Krishna says that janma karma ca me divyaṁ yo janati tattvatah . The advent of Krishna, it is very important thing. 

We should try to understand Krishna, why He advents, why He comes on this material world, what is His business, what are His activities. If we simply try to understand Krishna, then what is the result? The result is tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti kaunteya . You get that immortality. The aim of life is to achieve immortality. Amrtatvaya kalpate.

So in the advent of Krishna, we shall try to understand the philosophy of Krishna. His Excellency was speaking of peace. The peace formula is there, spoken by Krishna. What is that?

bhoktaram yajna-tapasam sarva-loka-mahesvaram suhrdaṁ sarva-bhutanam jnatva mam santim rcchati

If the politicians, diplomats, they are trying to establish peace in the world… The United Nation is there, and there are many other organizations. They are trying to have real peace and tranquillity, no misunderstanding between man to man, nation to nation. But that is not happening. That is not happening. The defect is that in the root is wrong. Everyone’s thinking “It is my country. It is my family. It is my society. It is my property.” This “mine” is illusion. In the sastra it is said, janasya moho ’yam aham mameti.

This “I and my” philosophy is illusion.

So this illusion means maya. Maya… If you want to get out of this illusion, maya, then you have to accept the Krishna’s formula. Mam eva ye prapadyante mayam etam taranti te. Everything is there in the Bhagavad-gita for guidance if we accept the philosophy of Bhagavad-gita as it is. Everything is there. Peace is there, prosperity is there. So that is a fact. Unfortunately, we do not accept it. That is our misfortune. Or we misinterpret it. Krishna says in the Bhagavad- gita, man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru. Krishna says that “You always think of Me,” man-mana bhava mad-bhakto. “Become My devotee.” Mad-yaji, “You worship Me.” Mam namaskuru, “And offer obeisances unto Me.” Is it very difficult task? Here is Krishna’s Deity. If you think of this Deity, Radha-Krishna, is it very difficult? 

Man-mana. You come into the temple and, just as a devotee, offer your respect to the Deity, man-mana bhava mad- bhakto. As far as possible try to worship the Deity, patram puspam phalam toyam yo me bhaktya prayacchati. Krishna does not want your whole property. Krishna is open to the poorest man for being worshiped. What He is asking? He says, patram puspam phalam toyam yo me bhaktya prayacchati: “With devotion, if a person offers Me a little leaf, a little fruit, a little water, I accept it.” 

Krishna is not hungry, but Krishna wants to make you devotee. That is the main point. Yo me bhaktya prayacchati. That is the main principle. If you offer Krishna little things… Krishna is not hungry; Krishna is providing food for everyone. Eko yo bahunam vidadhati kaman. But Krishna wants your love, your devotion. 

Therefore He is begging little patram puspam phalam toyam. Man-mana bhava mad-bhakto. There is no difficulty in understanding Krishna and to accept Krishna consciousness. But we’ll not do that; that is our disease. Otherwise, it is not difficult at all. And as soon as we become devotee of Krishna, we understand the whole situation. Our philosophy, Bhagavata philosophy, is also communism because we consider Krishna the supreme father, and all living entities, they are all sons of Krishna.

So Krishna says that He is the proprietor of all planets, sarva-loka- mahesvaram. Therefore whatever there is, either in the sky or in the water or in the land, they’re all Krishna’s property. And because we are all sons of Krishna, therefore every one of us has the right to use (the) father’s property. But we should not encroach upon others. This is the formula of peace. Ma grdha kasya svidhanam, isavasyam idam sarvam. Everything belongs to God. You are sons of God. You have got the right to use father’s property, but do not take more than you need. 

That is punishable. These things are stated in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. Stena eva sa ucyate, in the Bhagavad-gita, “he’s a thief.” If anyone takes more than he needs, then he’s a thief. Yajnarthat karmaṇo ’nyatra loko ’yam karma-bandhanaḥ. If for the satisfaction of Krishna… Yajna means Krishna’s another name is Yajnesvara. So you act for Krishna, you take prasada Krishna. 

That what we are teaching here. In this temple, we are residing Americans, Indians, Englishmen, Canadians, Africans, different parts of the world. You know that. Not only in this temple, all over the world. [break]

…when we forget this philosophy, that Krishna is the supreme father, Krishna is the supreme proprietor, Krishna is the supreme enjoyer and Krishna is the supreme friend of everyone. When you forget this, then we come into this material world and struggle for existence, fight with one another. This is material life. 

So you cannot get… The politicians, diplomats, philosophers, they have tried so much, but actually nothing has become fruitful. Just like the United Nations. It was organized after the second great war, and they wanted that peacefully we shall settle everything. But there is no such thing. The fighting is going on between Pakistan and India, between Vietnam and America, and this and that. It is not the process. The process is Krishna consciousness. Everyone has to understand this fact, that we are not proprietor. 

Proprietor is Krishna. That’s a fact. Just like America. Say two hundred years ago the Americans, the European migrators, they were not proprietor—somebody was proprietor. Before them, somebody was proprietor or it was vacant land. The actual proprietor is Krishna. But artificially you are claiming that “It is my property.” Janasya moho ’yam aham mameti. This is called maya.
So Krishna advents for give us lesson. Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata. Krishna says, “My dear Arjuna, I come when there is discrepancies in the process of religious life.” Dharmasya glanir bhavati. 

And what is dharma? The simple definition of dharma is dharmam tu saksad bhagavat- pranitam. This is dharma. Dharmam tu saksad bhagavat-pranitam. Just like what do you mean by law? Law means the word given by the state. You cannot make law at home. That is not possible. Whatever the government gives you, that “You should act like this,” that is law. Similarly, dharma means the direction given by God. That is dharma. Simple definition. You create dharma. I have created this dharma, another man creates another dharma; these are not dharma. Therefore, where the Bhagavad-gita ends, that sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam , this is dharma—to surrender to Krishna. Any other dharma, they are not dharma. 

Otherwise, why Krishna asks sarva-dharman parityajya: “Give up”? He said that dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge: “I advent to establish the principles of religion.” And at last He says, sarva-dharman parityajya. That means the so-called dharmas that we have manufactured, man-made dharmas, they are not dharmas. Dharma means what is given by God. But we have no understanding what is God and what is His word. That is the modern civilization defect. But the order is there, God is there—we won’t accept. Where is the possibility of peace? The order is there. Krishna says, the Supreme, bhagavan uvaca. Vyasadeva writes bhagavan uvaca. One should know what is bhagavan. Vyasadeva could have written Krishna uvaca. No. He says… 

If one may misunderstand Krishna, therefore he writes in every stanza, every verse, sri bhagavan uvaca. So Bhagavan is there. Bhagavan is speaking. Bhagavan is accepted by all the acaryas. Ramanujacarya, Madhvacarya, Visnusvamī. Latest, Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu also, even Śankaracarya, he also accepts Krishna—sa bhagavan svayam Krishna. So the verdict of the modern acaryas, and in the past also, Vyasadeva, Narada, Asita, everyone accepted Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Arjuna, who heard from Krishna, after understanding Bhagavad-gita, he said, param brahma param dhama pavitram paramaṁ bhavan purusam adyam sasvatam.

So everything is there. Especially in India, we have got so much asset for understanding God. Simple thing. Everything is there ready made. But we won’t accept. So what is the remedy for such disease? We are searching after peace, but we won’t accept anything which is actually giving us peace. This is our disease. So this Krishna consciousness movement is trying to awaken the dormant Krishna consciousness in everyone’s heart. Otherwise, how these Europeans and Americans and other countrymen, they never heard of Krishna four or five years ago, how they are taking Krishna consciousness so seriously? Krishna consciousness is there in everyone’s heart. It has to be awakened only. That is described in the Caitanya-caritamrta.

nitya-siddha Krishna-bhakti ‘sadhya’ kabhu naya sravanadi-suddha-citte karaye udaya

It is awakened. Love for Krishna, devotion for Krishna, is there within everyone’s heart, but he has forgotten. So this Krishna consciousness movement is simply meant for awakening that Krishna consciousness. This is the process. Just like when you are sleeping, your, I have to call you loudly—“Mr. such and such, such and such, get up. You have got this business.” No other senses will act when you are sleeping. But the ear will act. Therefore, in this age, when people are so fallen they will not hear anything, if we chant this Hare Krishna maha-mantra, he’ll be awakened to Krishna consciousness. This is practical.

So actually if we are anxious for peace and tranquillity in society, then we must be very serious to understand Krishna. That is our request. Don’t take it neglectfully, the Krishna consciousness movement. This movement can solve all the problems of life, all the problems in the world. Social, political, philosophical, religious, economical—everything can be solved by Krishna consciousness. Therefore, we request those who are leaders—just like His Excellency is present here—you should try to understand this Krishna consciousness movement. 

It is very scientific, authorized. It is not a mental concoction or sentimental movement. It is most scientific movement. So we are inviting all leaders from all countries: try to understand. If you are sober, if you are actually reasonable, you’ll understand that this Krishna consciousness movement is the sublime movement for the welfare of the whole human society. That’s a fact. Anyone may come. We are prepared to discuss this subject matter. Krishna bhuliya jiva bhoga vancha kare. We should not…

Our human life, the ultimate goal of human life is to achieve immortality. Tyaktva dehaṁ punar janma naiti , This is our…, we have forgotten this. We are simply leading the life of cats and dogs, without any knowledge that we can achieve that perfection of life when there will be no more birth, no more death. We do not understand even that there is possibility of amrtatvam. But everything is possible. Amrtatvam. Nobody wants to die. That’s a fact. Nobody wants to become old man, nobody wants to become diseased. 

This is our natural inclination. Why? Because originally, in our spiritual form, there is no birth, no death, no old age, no disease. So after evolutionary process down from the aquatics, birds, beasts, plants, trees, when you come to this form of human form of body after… Asitim caturas caiva laksams tad jiva-jatisu. This is evolutionary process. We come to the human form of body. Then we should know what is the goal of life. The goal of life is amrtatvam, to become immortal. 

That you can become immortal simply by becoming Krishna conscious. Krishna says. It is a fact. We have to simply understand. Janma karma me divyam yo janati tattvatah. If you try to understand Krishna in truth, tattvatah, then, tyaktva deham punar janma naiti, after giving up this body, you don’t accept any more material body. 

And as soon as you don’t accept any material body means you become immortal. Because by nature we are immortal. So Krishna advents, Krishna advents to teach us this lesson, that “You are immortal by nature. As spirit soul you are part and parcel of Me. I am as immortal. So you are also immortal. Unnecessarily, you are trying to be happy in this material world.”

mamaivamso jiva bhuto jiva-loke sanatanah manah sastanindriyani prakrti-sthani karsati

Simply struggle for…, unnecessarily. The best thing is that you have enjoyed sense life in so many varieties of life, as cats, as dogs, as demigods, as tree, as plants, as insect. Now, in this human form of life, don’t be captivated by sensuous life. Just try to understand Krishna. That is the verdict of the sastras. Nayam deho deha-bhajam nrloke kastan kaman arhate vid-bhujam ye . 

To work very hard like dogs and hog for sense gratification is not the ambition of human life. Human life is meant for little austerity. Tapo divyam putraka yena suddhyet sattvam. We have to purify our existence. That is the mission of human life. Why I shall purify my sattva existence? Brahma-saukhyam tv anantam. Then you get unlimited pleasure, unlimited happiness. That is real pleasure. Ramante yogino ’nante satyananda-cid-atmani iti rama-padenasau paraṁ brahmabhidhiyate.

So, at least in India, all the great personalities, saintly persons, sages and ācāryas, they have cultivated this spiritual knowledge so nicely and fully, and we are not taking advantage of it. It is not that those sastras and directions are meant for the Indians or for the Hindus or for brahmanas. No. It is meant for everyone. Because Krishna claims


sarva-yonisu kaunteya sambhavanti murtayah yah tasam mahad brahma yonir aham bija-pradah pita

Krishna claims that “I am everyone’s father.” Therefore, He is very much anxious to make us peaceful, happy. Just like the father wants to see his son is well situated and happy; similarly, Krishna also wants to see every one of us happy and well-situated. Therefore He comes sometimes. Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati This is the purpose of Krishna’s advent. So those who are servants of Krishna, devotees of Krishna, they should take the mission of Krishna. They should take up the mission of Krishna. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s version.

amara ajnaya guru hana tara ei desa yare dekha, tare kaha, ‘Krishna’-upadesa
Krishna-upadesa. Just try to preach what Krishna has said in the Bhagavad-gita. That is the duty of every Indian. Caitanya Mahaprabhu says.

bharata-bhumite manusya janma haila yara janma sarthaka kari para-upakara.
So Indians, Indians are meant for para-upakara. Indians are not meant for exploiting others. That is not Indians’ business. Indian history is all along for para-upakara. And formerly, from all parts of the world, used to come to India to learn what is spiritual life. 

Even Jesus Christ went there. And from China and from other countries. That is history. And we are forgetting our own asset. How much we are callous. Such a great movement, Krishna consciousness, is going on all over the world, but our Indians are callous, our government is callous. They do not take. That is our misfortune. But it is the Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mission. 

He says any Indian, bharata bhumite manusya janma, if he’s human being, he must make his life perfect by taking advantage of this Vedic literature and distribute the knowledge all over the world. That is para-upakara. So India can do. They are actually appreciating. These Europeans, American young men, they are appreciating that how great… I get daily dozens of letter, how they are benefited by this movement. Actually, that is the fact. It is giving the life for the dead man. So I shall specially request the Indians, especially His Excellency, kindly cooperate with this movement, and try to make successful your life and others’ life. That is the mission of Krishna, advent of Krishna.
Thank you very much.
