Hare Krsna To AllPranamsGlories to Srila Prabhupada Well its raining it out this morning so I have time to do this and not the garden work..Below is 4 segments from one lecture given by Jagat Guru Srila Prabhupada. All tiny bits of supreme nectar for those who follow in his footsteps.Damaghosa das-----------------------
Prabhupada: ... enlightening or enthusing the whole
universe. How? Mandam jahasa. Little smile. If Krsna is pleased and
smiles little, then the whole universe will be pleased. Akhilodayah.
Tasmin tuste jagat tustah. If Krsna is pleased, satisfied, then the
whole universe will be satisfied, because the whole universe means
part and parcel of Krsna.
But if His devotee offers Him something with
love and affection, then He accepts. So do not think that "We have
made such nice, sumptuous plate for Krsna. Krsna must eat." No. There
is no such thing, "must." You cannot make Krsna must. That is not
possible. So Krsna will see how much you have love for Him. Then He
will accept. Otherwise He'll reject. Therefore, it is forbidden, those
who are nondevotee, those who are not initiated, those who are not
chanting regularly, their offering to Krsna will not be accepted. We
must be very careful. We must know our position, whether I am
sincerely following the principles of devotional service. Then Krsna
will accept. Yo me bhaktya prayacchati. The real thing is bhakti. So
either you offer Krsna prayers or you offer foodstuff, everything must
be along with bhakti, devotion, love. Then Krsna will accept.
"...your son is dead.' " But Yudhisthira Maharaja hesitated: "Oh, I never
spoken lies. How can I say it?" You see?
So this was a mistake by Yudhisthira Maharaja, because the
so-called truthfulness or untruthfulness of this relative world is not
applicable to Krsna. Krsna has got a plan. If we execute the plan of
Krsna, that is the highest truth. But we should not imitate unless we
are actually ordered to do such thing. Just like Krsna was personally
asking. So unless we are ordered by Krsna or Krsna's representative,
we cannot violate the morality of this world. That is not possible. It
is a great philosophy. It requires little brain to understand. So man
nimitte krtam papam punya eva kalpate(?). So if sometimes we have to
do something which is sinful for the sake of Krsna, not for others,
not for me... For me, even if we do so-called pious activities, that
is also impious. And if we do something for Krsna which is in the
estimation of the world impious, that becomes pious. That is Krsna
So that is our Krsna consciousness movement. We are trying to
dovetail everything in connection with Krsna. Make Krsna center, and
all your activities will be spiritual. That is distinction. Sa gunan
samatityaitan brahma-bhuyaya kalpate. As soon as anything is done for
Krsna, the bhakti... So the beginning you cannot do so, that anything
you can dovetail. No. In the beginning you have to learn first of all
how to become Krsna conscious. You are, we are in the training period.
We are in the training period. We should not imitate: "Oh, Yudhisthira
Maharaja was ordered to speak lies, so let us go on speaking all
lies." No, not that. You cannot do so. First of all, be trained up.
For being trained up, you have to follow the regulative principles,
the orders of spiritual master. In this way, sevonmukhe hi jihvadau.
When your all parts of your limbs will be engaged in Krsna's service,
hrsikena hrsikesa-sevanam, in this way when you are actually advanced,
then whatever you do in Krsna consciousness, that is good.
Thank you very much. (end)
