HARE KRSNA TO ALL
GLORIES TO SRILA PRABHUPADA
Prabhupada explains below that he cannot swim, but that the real yogic power isfinding Paramatma sitting within his heart-of which there is not doubt he did, and does. A side point would be that if one has uncovered his relationship with Paramatma, then other mystic powers side by side, will also be there as well. So if one has no mystic power,(which is much different than charisma) then the conclusion is he still has not uncovered his eternal relationship with the indwelling Supersoul... (see below). And if he has not done this, then how can he guide one as guru? One must be liberated to become initiating spiritual master.Hari bol Damaghosa das------------------- 730509mw.la Conversations
Prabhupada: Yes. Mystic yogic power means the same acintya-sakti,
dormant potency which is within everyone. That can be awakened. The
same example, as I have given, that everyone has got the potency to
swim, but it has to be practiced. I cannot swim. For me, if one is
swimming, it is inconceivable power. But I have got also that power.
By practice, it has to be awakened.
Svarupa Damodara: That is a yogic process.
Prabhupada: That is yogic process. Real yogic process is to find out
Paramatma, but side by side many other dormant powers become awakened.
Another example, that tree is producing chemicals. So every living
entity has got dormant potencies, more or less. So God, Krsna, is the
supreme living entity; therefore He has the full potency. God means
full, complete. Nityo nityanam cetanas cetananam. The best living
entity, that is God. (pause) Is there any difficulty to understand the
best living entity?
Svarupa Damodara: The best living entity?
Svarupa Damodara: No.
Prabhupada: Yes. So that best living entity is God. Isvarah paramah
krsnah. That means the best controller, the supreme controller. Justlike this man is controlling his dog, and that man is controlled by
somebody else. In his office or where he works, he is controlled by
his boss. And the dog is controlling the cat, the cat is controlling
rat. In this way, one after another, there are controllers. I control
you, he controls me, another controls him. In this way, you go on
searching. When you find out somebody who controls but is not
controlled by anyone, He is God. Where is the difficulty to
understand? Everyone here we see that although a person is controller,
at the same time he is controlled. Therefore the ideal living entity
is, he controls but he is not controlled by others. That is supreme
