Srimad Bhagavatam 11-11-5
Boston, MA - 06-09-2005
atha baddhasya muktasya
vailakṣaṇyam vadami te
Thus, My dear
Uddhava, in the same material body we find opposing characteristics,
such as great happiness and misery. That is because both the Supreme
Personality of Godhead, who is eternally liberated, as well as the
conditioned soul are within the body. I shall now speak to you about
their different characteristics.
In verse 36 of the previous chapter, Uddhava
inquired about the different symptoms of liberated and conditioned life.
Srila Sridhara Svami explains that the characteristics of bondage and
liberation may be understood in two divisions — as the difference
between the ordinary conditioned soul and the eternally liberated
Personality of Godhead, or as the difference between conditioned and
liberated living entities in the jīva category. The Lord will first
explain the difference between the ordinary living entity and the
Supreme Personality of Godhead, which may be understood as the
difference between the controlled and the controller. [End of Purport]
unmiltam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah
So, when I was first looking over this verse, I was
seeing these comparisons happiness, misery, the Personality of Godhead
in the jiva and that there was some comparison that made it seem like
that the jiva is in a position of misery and Krishna was in a position
of happiness. But then, it goes on to explain here, it’s also the
difference between a conditioned and a liberated living entity. So there
is hope for us. It’s not that the jiva is condemned to a life of misery,
as the Christian conception tells us that, “You will burn in Hell
Here, we have a
very nice understanding that if we come to this position of liberation
then we can experience great happiness. This is the wonderful mercy of
this Krishna Consciousness Movement. It is offering the living entities
of this world who are indeed sufferings in unlimited ways, the
opportunity to truly become happy. Of course, most people are thinking
“I am happy. I am quite satisfied, thank you.” But if we ask them, “Are
you always happy? Are you experiencing the greatest possible happiness
at every moment?” Then they will hesitate. They will have to think, “Well
maybe I am not really as happy as I think I am.” And everyone has to
admit that they have moments, so many experiences in their life of great
of Krishna Consciousness brings us to a position, brahma-saukhyam tv
anantam where we can always be happy in all times, all places and all
circumstances. Nobody has this anywhere in this material world, even on
the highest planet Brahmaloka. This is confirmed in the Bhagavad-gita,
"from the highest planet down to the lowest, everywhere is a miserable
place." We may think ourselves happy by making very nice facilities, but
that facility cannot give us actual happiness. We must remain in
a position of unhappiness as long as we are in this material existence.
Our great acharyas, they
have passed down this wonderful, wonderful formula of how to unlock that
happiness which is actually there, because constitutionally we are
qualitatively one with the Supreme. Krishna is eternal. He is full of
knowledge. He is full of bliss. We have the same nature, sachit-ananda-vigraha. But we have foolishly traded in
sat cit ananda
vigraha for asat acit nirananda. Why? Bad propaganda! Bad education!
We’ve taken the greatest thing and foolishly walked away from it.
So, our great acharyas, Srila
Prabhupada, Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura, Bhaktivinoda Thakura,
they have so mercifully dedicated every ounce of their energy, at every
moment of their eternal existence, for waking us up from this
conditioned consciousness which is causing us to suffer unnecessarily.
It’s actually just foolish for us to remain in this impure state of
consciousness. it is utter foolishness. Actually, we are doing nothing but
torturing ourselves to remain in this conditioned state of
consciousness. If we have any brains at all, we will discipline
ourselves very strictly and carefully, carefully follow this process
with every thought, with every word, with every deed, so that quickly we
can come out of our suffering condition and come to the platform of pure
devotional service gives great happiness to the living beings. There is
no limit to the happiness and satisfaction that one derives in that
state of pure devotional service. As that purification of consciousness
unfolds or develops in the sincere aspirant of pure devotional service,
then they have the fringe benefit of satisfaction of being more and more
potent as they progress along the path of purification to help others
become purified in their consciousness. To the extent that we are pure,
to that extent we can help others to become pure. We become potent to
the degree of our own purity.
It is not that potency is based on, “Well, he is a
good singer, he is a good speaker, he dresses very nicely.” There is no
material qualification for spiritual potency. It is simply based on the
purification of that person; how much they are actually pure. It is quite
amazing. Prabhupada explains... it never ceases to amaze me his statement
in Caitanya caritamrita. There he says, “A person who purely chants the
holy name of the Lord without any offense becomes jagad-guru and under
his influence the whole world takes up the chanting of Hare Krishna.”
So, what does Prabhupada
wants us to do? Does he want us to become pure chanters or remain impure
chanters? Prabhupada wants us to become as potent as possible in our
ability to deliver others by becoming as absolutely as pure as we
possibly can be. So, this is a great responsibility. Each and every one
of us has to become completely pure in our Krishna Consciousness. As far
as we possibly can, we have to beg for the mercy of the Vaishnavas, beg
for the mercy of our spiritual master, beg for the mercy from Srila
Prabhupada and all the acharyas, that we may become completely, solidly,
totally fixed in pure devotional service as soon as possible.
We have to overcome all the
anarthas that have been lingering in our hearts for countless lifetimes
and causing us untold sufferings and anxieties. Enough is enough! Why do
we go on in this way holding on to our material attachments? Is this
an intelligent thing? It’s foolish. We have to give up holding on to
these attachments which are tormenting us. This is the real nectar, to come to
this platform of pure devotional service.
We may think that we can make facilities for
ourselves in this world, but what will these facilities give us? Simply
a false sense of happiness. That’s all. Any so-called happy arrangement
we make here is simply illusory, maya sukhaya. The only arrangement that
will satisfy us is to come purely to Krishna Consciousness. Someone might
think, “Well, I need to be married, I need to have this position. I have
been asked to do this service which is not according to my nature,” but
actually making these adjustments are not the real solution. Those
adjustments may be made but they won’t really solve the problem of why
we are not experiencing the nectar that we are supposed to be
experiencing. There is only one adjustment that will bring us to the
point of actually tasting that nectar and that is when we come to the
platform of pure devotional service completely free of any desire for
profit, adoration, distinction, wealth, woman or followers. That’s the
So, we have to
pray for that mercy, we have to beg Krishna to bring us to pure
devotional service and what is that prayer begging for pure devotional
Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare,
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
And so many wonderful prayers of our great acharyas
are there. Recently one of my disciples asked me if she can make her own
prayers or “you just have to repeat the prayers.” One time Prabhupada
said, “You should not make your own prayers, you should just repeat the
prayers,” but then other times he said, “You can make your own prayer.”
So the idea is that one must study the prayers of the great acharyas.
One has to understand the mood of pure devotional service. Then when you
understand that mood by studying the beautiful prayers in the Bhagavatam,
Nectar of Devotion, etc. then one can actually compose their own prayers
to the Lord, as long as it’s in the line of pure devotional service. Not
that I am praying, “Please give me this, please give me that, give me,
give me, give me, me, me” but rather “How can I serve you, Krishna? How
can I get free from this foolish tendency I have to try to lord it over
the material nature, trying to squeeze one last drop before I really get
serious about this pure devotional service? Let me have one last drop of
sense gratification, punah punas carvita-carvananam and then tomorrow
I will take up the pure bhakti."
No, we really have to realize that Krishna
consciousness is actually here and now. Mayavadis misuse that. But
actually Bhaktivinoda is the original propounder of the ‘Here and Now’
philosophy. He says, “Forget the past that sleeps and act in times that
eith you and ne'er the future dream at all.” In this way he says,
“progress we shall cause.” So in our philosophy this is where the real
nectar is, right here and right now. We are thinking, “Well, it’s
going to be later on when I get this position, later on when I get
married or later on when I get free from marriage.” We are thinking it
is somewhere else. We are not realizing it is right here and it is right
now. We just have to really tune in and really purify our consciousness.
We have to be very
introspective. Prabhupada said, “A gentleman thinks twice before
speaking anything.” We have to very introspectively observe what's going
on in my mind right now. Just like sometimes there was one person and he
put one camera in front of himself on the holder and he put himself on
the Internet 24 hours a day. But just imagine if there could be an Internet
broadcast of your thoughts that the whole world could see or all the
devotees in ISKCON could see, every one of your thoughts at every
minute, 24 hours a day. Would you be totally devastated and embarrassed?
Could you actually stand up to that scrutiny that, “Yes, I am Krishna
Conscious.” So this is a kind of purification of consciousness we
seriously have to develop that we can stand up to that kind of scrutiny
of having every one of our thoughts observed by all the devotees of our
society and not have to hide our head in shame in a closet for all of our
dirty, lusty, angry, envious thoughts.
In this way, we have to be very, very introspective
and very serious to really kick out the crud. What does Bhaktisiddhanta
say? Give that rascal mind a beating every morning a hundred times, take
that dirty old shoe and beat it, wham, wham, one hundred times. And if
that wasn’t enough, before you go to bed then go to the broom closet,
grab that broom and give it again one hundred times. This is the program
of Krishna Consciousness. Knock the living crud out of that rascal mind;
really give it a good beating because this mind is really, really the
cause that gives me so much difficulty lifetime after lifetime. The
gross body is not a big deal. You automatically get rid of it. At the
time of death it’s gone, it is finished. The problem is the subtle body,
the mind, that’s what is keeping us caught up here.
The real problem is the mind.
But I remember reading in our books that one who has advanced in Krishna
Consciousness makes progress just by associating with his mind. So
alss we read that the mind is the best friend and the worst enemy. We really have to bring the mind from the position right now where it’s
such an enemy of our progress and bring it to the point where it’s
really our best friend; when it’s always Krishna Conscious. From the
mind we have thinking, feeling, willing and acting. The thoughts that
are going on in your mind is your thinking and then if you are thinking
long enough, then you start feeling like doing or saying whatever you’re
thinking about. You start feeling that that would be a good idea, then
you will to actually say that or do that and then you actually do that.
There is a Hindi saying
that, “if you can conquer your mind, you can conquer the world.” So it’s
a big fight but if we can be successful in conquering over the mind then
there’s no limit to how much we can become happy in Krishna
Consciousness and how much we can impact others also to become happy on
this path of back to home, back to godhead, and the wonderful shelter of
the lotus feet of His Divine Grace Om Vishnupada Paramhamsa Pravijakacarya
Astotara-sata Sri Sriman A.C. Bhaktivedanta Tridandi Gosvami Maharaja
So we have
a very nice help from the poet, Govinda Das. He is saying, “bhajahu re mana
sri-nanda-nandana abhaya-caranaravinda re”. So, he’s giving us a
very nice demonstration on how to bring that mind under control. “O my
dear mind, you just engage yourself in the devotional service to the divine
son of Nanda”. Prabhupada wonderfully expands on these writings of our
great acharyas. In the final verse where the nava vidha bhakti is
expounded by the poet Govinda Das, Srila Prabhupada explains that this is
the answer of Govinda Das because the mind will complain. Prabhupada
says, "The mind will complain to Govinda Das, 'You are taking away all my
happiness and you are leaving me with nothing, what will I do?' And then Govinda
das answers the mind, 'sravana, kirtana, smarana, vandana,
pada-sevana, dasya re'." So this is a very nice program to follow, the way
of our great acharyas, to charm the mind.
There are two different approaches.
Bhaktisiddanta’s teaching is to take the approach of beating: “You
rascal mind here you take this.” But Govinda Das, he has given us another
tactic, “ O My dear mind, you just engage yourself in the service of the
divine son of Nanda Maharaja.”
So there are different techniques and methods given
by our acharyas and you can take which method works best for you in a
particular time, place or situation. Just like a powerful ksatriya, he
has so many types of weapons for so many different types of situations.
We’ve been given many astras to conquer over the mind by our great
acharyas. We just have to study very carefully all the different
techniques and methodologies of conquering the mind and build up nice
So when we have this kind of attack from the mind we can
conquer it, and if we have that kind of attack from the mind we can
conquer that one. Any kind of attack... The mind can never throw an astra
at us that we don’t have an astra to counteract it with. Prabhupada
actually explains that to take up Krishna Consciousness is to declare war on Maya. This is actual warfare. We have to be very enthusiastic
to conquer the mind. Actually, it’s fun. When you take it
enthusiastically that, "here is an opportunity to show my spiritual
master, to show Srila Prabhupada, to show the acharyas, to show Krishna
that I’m very serious to be actually your devotee and receive your
blessings for sincerely doing everything I possibly can to surrender at
your lotus feet." If we have this mood, then it becomes a great
adventure, a great exciting pastime to bring this mind under control. To
just subdue it becomes a very wonderful exciting adventure and expanding
the consciousness beyond the limited, imprisoned situation within the
three modes of material nature - sattva guna, raja guna, tamo guna.
Krishna gives all help.
Even one little step towards Krishna, He reciprocates ten times.
Where do you find that kind of investment? I see here in Boston, you
have your financial district. Fidelity Investments has now invaded Commonwealth
Pier, where Prabhupada landed. So, we can see this is also
an investment. We’re investing our time and our energy. So, where is
that investment that you can put one dollar down and get ten dollars
back? Just imagine if there were such an investment then everyone would
be running. You put one dollar down and you get ten back, you put ten
down you get a hundred back, you put hundred down you get a thousand
back and very quickly you will become the wealthiest person in the whole
universe and your wealth would exceed the wealth of Kuvera, the treasurer
of the demigods by this method. This is the investment opportunity that
Srila Prabhupada has given us. Whatever we endeavor towards Krishna, ten
times reciprocation is coming from Krishna. So there is no greater
investment opportunity. Then, you may say, where is the opulence?
Normally investment means opulence. Successful investment means you
become very, very opulent.
But do you think a pure devotee of the Lord is not
opulent? He may appear to be a mendicant. Prabhupada presented himself
as a beggar. He may appear to be a mendicant. But, actually the real
fact is that when you fully surrender yourself unto Krishna, then what do
you possess? You give up all false conceptions of possession. There is
one thing that you possess. You possess Krishna. When you have totally,
wholly given yourself to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, then He
becomes your personal possession. You may say how is that possible? We
see here Mother Yasoda, she is tying up Krishna. We see Arjuna he is
instructing Krishna , “You drive my chariot here and drive my
chariot there.” When you give yourself completely to Krishna, then
Krishna becomes your property and if you own that person who owns
everything, who controls everything, then is it ever possible for you to
be in any difficulty?
may appear that a pure devotee is sometimes in difficulty but actually,
he is never in difficulty. He is absolutely never in any difficulty.
Everything is there just as the arrangement of Krishna to glorify His
pure devotee more and more, that’s all. A pure devotee is never in any
difficulty. So, now we are thinking that we are experiencing so many
difficulties, but the only difficulty is our lack of Krishna
Consciousness. There was one householder and he wrote a letter to
Prabhupada that he wanted to change his asrama. He was a brahmacari
and he wasn’t happy there. “If I get married then I can become happy."
next thing, he is thinking, "Well, I am not happy as a householder. Now I
need to be a sannyasi then I can be happy.” The 'grass is greener on the
other side of the fence' syndrome. (laughs). Srila Prabhupada told him,
"Actually your anxiety is not due to an external situation, but it is
simply due to your lack of Krishna Consciousness. That is your anxiety."
I always remember that because it not only applies to him but it
applies to every single situation that we may face in this sojourn
in material existence; it applies to everything actually. Kunti was going
through the greatest distress and difficulty during those years of
exile. When it was all, over she said, “I want more of that. That was
actually great. Give me more Krishna. Give me more calamity, more
calamity. I don’t like this comfortable position because I don’t feel as
Krishna conscious now. Give me more difficulty.”
Prabhupada advised one gentleman who was coming to
him for advice and he said, “Do not to seek security, seek opportunity
instead.” Our tendency in this world is to make a nice comfortable nest
for ourselves in this material existence, some secure position. But
there is no such thing as security. You may think you have security here
but there is absolutely no security in this material existence.
Therefore, instead of seeking security, we should seek the opportunity
how to completely conquer the impurities in our hearts and become pure
devotees and spread this as far as possible to everyone that we possibly
can. Prabhupada was very much pushing us again and again to make a
revolution on this planet.
One time, he gave the definition of the word of
digvijaya, conquering pandita. Of course in the Caitanya
lila, we know
there is Kesava Kashmiri the digvijaya pandita, who was conquering all the
panditas all over India. Prabhupada told us that actually we should
become digvijaya. He described what this digvijaya is. He said you go
village to village, town to town and you make digvijaya, "There is
God and I can prove there is God.“Who are you to say there is no God? Come on!" That is
digvijaya. Prabupada wanted us to go head to head with
these atheistic rascals and to establish the existence of God. So he
encouraged us like that to become digvijaya pandita.
You can go anywhere and
everywhere and establish Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mission. Then in one
lecture he was saying, "In the present time, the world is being managed by
rogues and demons." He says, “Now, you just make your life successful and
you take the management.” He is not talking about political management
here. He’s talking about the actual leadership of the world. In the Vedic
culture, the brahmanas are the actual leaders of the world. Of course, he
also wanted that political leaders should follow but the first principle
of leadership is the brahmanas. We should become so pure and so fixed in
our Krishna Consciousness that the leaders of the world would come to us
to know how to rule the country. President Bush would call up Jayadeva
Swami and say, “Maharaja, how can I run this country? Please come to the
White House and guide me.” We should come to that standard in our
Movement. Our leading scholars and realized devotees like Jayadeva Swami
would be sought after by the world leaders. “Will you please come to my
country and guide me how to run this country in Krishna Conscious way?”
So, in this way we have to very seriously take up our duty as followers
of Srila Prabhupada to become very, very pure and very, very fixed to
actually become realized in Krishna Consciousness. Not just sit on the
surface but actually go very, very deep into the ocean of Krishna
Consciousness. Prabhupada was pushing me to become like that because
previously I’d been a song-writer before coming to our Movement. One
time I asked Prabhupada about song writing. He actually encouraged me to
come to the level where I can write songs like Bhaktivinoda Thakura. He
said, “Now you just qualify yourself to see Krishna face to face then
you can actually write songs about Krishna.” So, that’s a very high
standard. I wasn’t talking about going back to Godhead, I was asking
about writing songs now in this body and Prabhupada was telling me that
you should come to the point where you can actually see Krishna face to
face and then you can really write realized songs.
Prabhupada is actually wanting
us to come to that level of pure devotional service not to remain mixed
devotees, still having material desires, just basket cases, mercy cases
that are allowed out of kindness to go back to Godhead. Of course, it’s
not so easy actually. Prabhupada does say that you have to become
completely pure. Because if there is even one tinge of material desire
left you have to take birth again. Absolute purity is there. So we
really should push for it. We should take inventory of our own Krishna
Consciousness and lack thereof. Every day we should be inventorying our
heart of how much Krishna Consciousness is there and how much are we are
lacking in it and fill up the warehouse. Get rid of all those empty
shelves in our heart where Krishna consciousness is not manifest. And you
know what the position is when Krishna Consciousness is not manifest? You know who fills up the missing gaps?
None other than Srimati Mayadevi.
She very happily comes into the empty places where we don’t have Krishna
consciousness in our hearts and sits there very nicely. Once Prabhupada
was speaking with Vishnujana Maharaja in his quarters in Los Angeles and
he pointed to his harmonium, he said, “No gaps for maya, if I have
nothing else I can sing some bhajans.” This is how we have to discipline
ourselves, that our 24 hours at every minute we are connected with
Krishna every second. It’s not that my few gaps here and there are okay.
It’s not. We have to close all the gaps. Just like now the Department of
Homeland Security is trying to close all the gaps in the US to keep the
terrorists out. Good Luck! (Laughs) So, we have to be a better Homeland
Security Department than the US Homeland security to keep all the
terrorism out of our hearts. We were sent to this material world because
we were terrorists actually. We had a terrorist mentality and
immediately we were gone. Actually that mentality of a terrorist, coup
d’état mentality does not exist in the spiritual world. As you have that
mentality come, you are already gone. Spiritual world is completely
pure. So that impure tendency to want to lord it over, to rebel against
the Supremacy of Krishna is there. As soon as it is in your heart you
are already here, there is no doubt, instantaneous. So, now we have to
get back to our original position, back to home, back to Godhead. We
have to realize that if we can come to pure devotional service then we
will taste the sweetest nectar at every minute. Actually every single
instance of our eternal existence will be absolutely delicious. We
simply have to come to the position of pure devotional service.
If someone offers you two plates...
there is a plate full of nice prasada and there is a plate of
stool. Right now we are eating from both plates. We’ve taken up Krishna
consciousness, we are thinking this is great but stool is pretty good
too and I’ll have some of that along with my meal. We’re still eating
the stool. Can you imagine how foolish we are? Prabhupada has given us a
pure devotional service. Mayadevi has given us a plate of stool and we
are still sampling the stool, “Well, it’s pretty good; it kind of mixes
well with the prasadam”. Common! Time to get out of this psychotic
condition that stool tastes good. It doesn’t. It’s horrible. It’s
abominable. But still we are thinking, “Ah, yes.” See the mentality of
the hog, “That stool is very nice... yummy, yummy into tummy”. Time to give
it up, Prabhus and Matajis and Maharajas. Of course, Maharajas are already
there. But we have to give it up.
So, we can ask now if there is any question.
Devotee: I like what you said
about the mind. In the story pastime of Jada Bharata I think it is in
11th chapter of the 5th canto in the last verses, Prabhupada talks about
controlling the mind. In the purport he says there’s another way to
control the mind. He says, “neglect.”
SDA: Ah, some of the other astras, neglect.
Devotee: We have to learn to
neglect the demands of the mind instead of giving in, responding to it.
SDA: Yes. That is also a
very good technique. The mind is screaming and screaming; just don’t pay
any mind to the mind.
Devotee: A little child he is tugging on to your dhoti. You just have to
neglect, after a while don’t pay any attention to it.
SDA: It is very good. That’s a fact. That’s a very
good technique. The urges of the senses are there and just like an itch.
Prabhupada said you tolerate that itch, you don’t scratch. The mind is
nagging, nagging, just let it sit there and nag until it gets tired of
nagging. If you just let it sit there long enough without paying
attention to it then it will stop. That’s a fact, because we have that
higher taste in Krishna consciousness. We have some engagement as Govinda Das and
Prahlada Maharaja are giving us. We have that alternative
pleasure of higher taste. So, it’s a do-able thing to conquer the mind.
Devotee: But how do we
beat our mind with shoe every morning and broom in the evening?
SDA: Literally, no. Actually I just recently read
the description of that. I forget who wrote that. I think it was Bhaktisiddhanta. It means you just have to... I forget the exact description.
point is you just have to tell the mind, “it is nonsense and I don’t
want to take any more of this distracting business that you are engaging
me in.” I forget the exact description but it’s a philosophical point.
The point is that we are not literally doing that. I am sure the media
would really get excited, they would come to the temple and film the
broom and shoe rituals to show that we are indeed the most crazy people
in the whole world. It is actually allegorical. Basically you chastise
your mind, “You rascal, stop bothering me. Stop it! You are just
nonsense.” It is allegorical thing.
Devotee: "Do not seek security but seek opportunity."
This is wonderful. I am thinking particularly preaching. I tend to err
for the security when it comes to preaching rather than opportunity.
Could you give your thoughts on that?
SDA: It’s a very enlivening statement coming right
from the lotus mouth of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. If we stretch
our comfort zone for the sake of preaching then we reap incredible
results. That’s a fact.
Questions more? So everybody’s realized in pure devotional service.
Devotee: There’s a very
nice point also, just a comment: security seems to be very static and
closed but opportunity is open and dynamic.
SDA: And ecstatic. Actually we have a great
opportunity here. The real fact is that this is the most opportune
moment in history; right now! Prabhupada has just come here and he has
planted these seeds for complete transformation of world history. He has
given us everything we need to actually to do the greatest service to
Lord Caitanya by revolutionizing the planet. We have all the tools. He
has given us everything we need. He’s given us the temples, Deities,
books, Hare Krishna Mantra, each other, prasadam... all the tools for
completely changing world history and bringing spiritual renaissance on
this planet. He’s given us everything and now we just have to go with
Bill Gates was once
asked about his own material success and he said. “If you find yourself
in the right place at the right time, take massive action.” That’s what
he did. He was a dropout from Harvard College, and he got a contract for
an operating system for the IBM PC, a very opportune position when the PC
revolution was taking off. So, he capitalized on that.
So we have an even greater
opportunity now. The whole world is actually dying for Krishna
Consciousness and His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada has devised a
formula of how the whole world can be made Krishna conscious and he left
us with it. He said, “Here now, you do it and make the world Krishna
conscious. This is my order to you; spread Krishna consciousness all
over the world and inundate this planet with Krishna bhakti.”
So is there any greater opportune moment in the history of the world if
we can give pleasure to the Srila Prabhupada and the great acharyas
and Lord Caitanya? This is the greatest moment in the world history and
we are here right now, so let’s capitalize on it by taking massive
action, going after opportunity instead of security.
So, we’ll stop here. We thank you very much for
your kindness upon us.
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada! Hare Krishna!
