Hare Krsna-

Below is three different classes given by Srila Prabhupada explaining three different things, yet they are all tied together as one. The first one he is encouraging us to continue fighting with the atheistic or demoniac forces now present almost everywhere on this planet.  The second one he tells us that if we keep ourselves constantly engaged in Krsna Consciousness activity and to be careful and attentive, then going back to Godhead is assured. The last one explains why we will only suffer if we continue to serve anyone but Krsna-and that nobody will appreciate our service, like Krsna can. Therefore the best thing is to transfer all our actions to Krsna seva , for Krsna will be happy, we will be happy and the entire world will be happy.

Hare Krsna

So you have very kindly joined this movement. You have not joined this movement for your poverty. You are not poverty-stricken. Sometimes people join this movement for poverty-stricken. But you are not belonging to that. You have voluntarily joined. So don’t be disappointed. There is now opposition, but don’t be disappointed. Kṛṣṇa will give you protection. Try to go on with this para-upakāramovement. Maybe because it is a fight against atheism, so some of our soldiers may fall down. But that should not discourage us. We must go on fighting with this atheistic civilization and try to push (this) Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement.

So our life…We should consider this human form of life, especially Kṛṣṇa conscious life, is very important life. We should not be inattentive. So we should be very careful. Kṛṣṇa will, of course, protect you, but at the same time, we have got consciousness. We should also take care that before the next death comeswe must be fully prepared for being transferred to Kṛṣṇa loka. And it is very simple thing. If you keep yourself constantly in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, that’s the only thing. Then you are sure to be going, transferred next life. As I was explaining last night, simply by understanding Kṛṣṇa…

 We are all engaged in some sort of service. There is no doubt about it. But we are suffering. By rendering service to māyā, we are suffering. The māyā means the service which we offer to somebody, that somebody is not satisfied; and you are also offering service—we are not satisfied. He is not satisfied with you; you are not satisfied with him. This is called māyā. Just like recently there was postal strike. This is most important department of the state. The state is offering them salary to the best capacity; still, the postmen, they are not satisfied. And they are offering service to the state; the state is also not satisfied. So māyā‘s service is like that. You go on throughout whole life. There are many examples.

Just like in your country, in our country, President Kennedy, he wanted to give service to the country, but the people were not satisfiedSomebody killed him. Gandhi, whole life he engaged himself to the service of the country, but he was killed by his countrymen. This is called māyā, that you offer service somebody—he is not satisfied; you are not satisfied. Nobody is satisfied. Therefore one should be intelligent, that “What kind of service I am rendering?” The man who I am… In the family, suppose a gentleman—throughout his life he has served the family—asked his wife, “Are you satisfied?” “Oh, what you have done for me?” Asked the son. Oh, he is not satisfied. So this is called māyā.

So one should be intelligent that “Why I am wasting my time in this way, where there is no satisfaction? Therefore I must render service to Kṛṣṇa. If I render service to Kṛṣṇa, then Kṛṣṇa will be satisfied and everyone will be satisfied. And I shall be satisfied because I am also part and parcel of Kṛṣṇa.” The same example: If you supply foodstuff to the stomach, then stomach is Kṛṣṇa. Then you are satisfied. Suppose you means individual parts. This hand is supplying sweetballs to the stomach. So this hand is satisfied; this hand also satisfied. And this head is also satisfied; the leg is also satisfied. You see? Similarly, anyone who serves KṛṣṇaKṛṣṇa, being satisfied Tasmin tuṣṭe jagat tuṣṭam. Just (like) I pour water on the root. The branches, the leaves, the flowers, the fruits and everything, they will immediately… Pay tax to the government, central government. The tax is distributed—the education department, municipal department, this department, that department. 
Therefore the people are missing the center. They are trying to satisfy one another, but nobody is satisfied. And by illusion they cannot understand this mistake. Everyone is very much proud: “Oh, I am serving my country.” And he does not know what somebody, his countrymen, will come and kill him. You see? He does not know that. This is māyā. So one should be intelligent to serve Kṛṣṇa. This prayer Hare Kṛṣṇa means “Kṛṣṇa, I am so much harassed by this service of this māyā. Now please engage me in Your service.” This is our prayer. And as soon as I am engaged in Kṛṣṇa’s service, then I will be satisfiedKṛṣṇa will be satisfied, and the whole world will be satisfied. …..
