Think of Krsna's Lotus feet-- and never be disturbed-SP

Hare Krsna to All Pranams Glories to Srila Prabhupada

"This is the process"-several times in this lecture Srila Prabhupada used this phrase.

If one wants tobe peaceful, not  feeling stressed out, and never shaken in any sort of calamity-"This is the process"

Pradyumna: Translation: "Suta Gosvami said, Thus being deeply absorbed
in thinking of the instructions of the Lord
, which were imparted in
the great intimacy of friendship, and in thinking of His lotus feet,
Arjuna's mind became pacified and freed from all material
contamination."
Prabhupada:suta uvaca
                        evam cintayato jisnoh
                         krsna-pada-saroruham
                         sauhardenatigadhena
                        santasid vimala matihThis is our Krsna consciousness movement, that if constantly our mind
is engaged in thinking of the lotus feet of Krsna... Thinking begins
from the lotus feet, not all of a sudden
... (child makes sounds)
(aside:) Stop this child. You cannot think of Krsna all of a sudden on
the top. This is the process. In the Second Canto you'll find we have
to think of Krsna's lotus feet. Srimad-Bhagavatam, First Canto and
Second Canto are the lotus feet of Krsna. Then you gradually rise.
When you are accustomed to think of Krsna, that is called
transcendental meditation. At any time, at any moment, if you
immediately meditate, you'll see the lotus feet of Krsna. That is
transcendental meditation. Then gradually rise to think of this
portion, this portion, this portion and, at last, the smiling face.
That smiling face is compared with the Tenth Canto, Tenth Canto of
Srimad-Bhagavatam. This is explained.....
   So Arjuna was disturbed in so many ways, but as soon as he began to
think of Krsna's lotus feet, (Sanskrit), immediately everything became
pacified. This is the process
. This transcendental consciousness or
transcendental meditation, immediately, without any delay, for a
moment you'll feel completely pacified
. Therefore Krsna advises
(Sanskrit). "Always..." Man-manah, "Always engage your mind upon Me."
This Deity worship means to train the neophytes devotees how to
concentrate upon the form of Krsna, especially His lotus feet. That
will make our life pacified always
, santa, santa, pacified, peacefulKrsna is not different from His words. That is absolute. What Krsna
said five thousand years ago, if you catch up those words again you're
immediately connected with Krsna, immediately. This is the process
.
Just see Arjuna. He says, evam cintayato jisnoh krsna-pada-saroruham.
When he began to think of Krsna and His instruction as..., in the
battlefield, immediately he become santa, peaceful. Immediately
pacified. This is the process. We have got intimate relationship with
Krsna, eternally. It is not artificial. Therefore if you keep ourself
always connected with Krsna, there will be no more disturbance.
Peaceful. Yam labdhva caparam labham manyate nadhikam tatah. If you
get that position, then that is the highest benefit, highest gain, yam
labdhva ca, then you will not desire for any other gain. You'll
perceive that I have got the highest gain. Yam labdhva caparam labham
manyate nadhikam tatah, yasmin sthitah... And if you keep yourself
fixed up in that position, then gurunapi duhkhena na, even the
heaviest type of calamities, you'll not be disturbed. That is peace.
That is peace. Not that little pinching, you're disturbed. If you're
actually fixed up in Krsna consciousness, you'll not be disturbed in
the greatest form of dangerous condition. That is the perfection of
Krsna consciousness.

Thank you very much (end)
