"When He's pleased, then He reveals"..-SP

■760912SB.VRN                   Lectures                 
They are all sudras. Therefore it is said, kalau sudra-sambhavah.
There is no training. It is very very difficult to train them to
become purified by training. These statuses of life were different
status of training so that ultimately one can become brahmana, and
when he's fully trained up as a brahmana then he transcends the
brahmana's position, and he becomes a Vaisnava
.
   So to become Vaisnava is not so easy thing. One has to become
brahmana, then when he surpasses the stages of becoming brahmana then
he becomes a Vaisnava.
Suddha-sattva. Sattvam visuddham
vasudeva-sabditam. Then Krsna is born. When one comes to the Vaisnava
stage, then he can understand what is Krsna. ...
.... So we have to wait for that opportunity when Krsna reveals. How
that revelation is possible
? Atah sri-krsna-namadi na bhaved grahyam
indriyaih. By sense perception or sense speculation you cannot.
Namadi. Even the chanting of Hare Krsna mantra you cannot understand.
Atah sri-krsna-namadi. Nama, rupa, lila, parikara, vaisistya...,
everything. You cannot understand with these blunt senses. Then how?
Sevonmukhe hi jihvadau svayam eva sphuraty adah. When you engage your
senses, purified senses. Sevonmukhe. Purified senses means when the
senses are engaged in the service of the Lord--everything--then you
can understand Krsna
. Sevonmukhe hi jihvadau svayam eva sphuraty adah
Krsna is not your servant: "Krsna, I want to see You." No. That you
cannot see. Svayam eva sphuraty adah. When He's pleased, when He sees
that "Here is a pure devotee," then He reveals
.

Prthivite ache yata nagaradi. That is His mission. It is not that
"Become a big Vaisnava and sit down and imitate." This is all
rascaldom. So don't follow this thing. So at least we cannot advise
you in that way. We have learned from our Guru Maharaja that preaching
is very, very important thing
, and when one is actually an experienced
preacher, then he is able to chant Hare Krsna mantra without any
offe
nse
. Before that, this so-called chanting ... .. And giving up all
other business to make a show of a big Vaisnava, that is
not required. Thank you very much. (end)
