El Temor se Debe a la Preocupación por el Futuro

“El temor se debe a la preocupación por el futuro. Una persona con conciencia de Kṛṣṇa no tiene temor, porque por sus actividades es seguro que irá de vuelta al cielo espiritual, de vuelta al hogar, de vuelta a Dios. Así pues, su futuro es muy brillante. Otros, sin embargo, no saben lo que el futuro les depara; ellos no tienen conocimiento de lo que la siguiente vida les depara. De manera que, por eso, se hallan en un estado de ansiedad constante”.

El Señor es Especialmente Amistoso con su Devoto

“El Señor es amigo de todos, pero es especialmente amistoso con el alma entregada. Por lo tanto, se trata de un proceso sencillo, en el cual el alma condicionada debe permanecer entregada al Señor; entonces, el Señor le brindará plena protección y la mantendrá fuera de las garras de la contaminación material”.

-El Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 4.7.30, significado.

No Satiation

When the ladies of the city of Dvārakā got up on the roofs of their palaces, they never thought that they had previously many times seen the beautiful body of the infallible Lord. This indicates that they had no satiation in desiring to see the Lord. Anything material seen for a number of times ultimately becomes unattractive by the law of satiation. Keep Reading

The Soul Transmigrates To Another Body

Prabhupāda: And this girl is psychologist?

Hṛdayānanda: (asks her what her speciality is)

Lady Psychologist: (Spanish)

Prabhupāda: If you have studied about the subtle body of living entity?

Avanzando En Conciencia De Krishna

“Cuando perdemos el gusto por esas cosas abominables (el placer material) es cuando podemos saber que estamos avanzando en conciencia de Kṛṣṇa. La prueba está en nuestras manos. No tienes que preguntarle a nadie: “¿Crees que se está incrementando mi conciencia de Kṛṣṇa”. Tú mismo lo puedes entender”.

We Do Not Know When Death Is Coming

We do not know when death is coming, especially in these days. We are moving in the street, we are moving by plane, we are moving… Every step, there is danger. Padaṁ padaṁ yad vipadām. It is a place of danger. 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 comes, we must be fully prepared for being transferred to Kṛṣṇaloka. 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.

Whatever We Offer to the Lord, it is Actually Enjoyed By Us

The example is given in the Srimad-Bhagavatam that the decoration on the face of a certain person is not seen by him, but when he sees his face on the mirror he enjoys. In other words, whatever we offer to the Lord, it is actually enjoyed by us. Just like we prepare so many delicious foodstuffs for Krsna, but we eat the Prasadam remnant of foodstuff offered to Krsna. The whole idea is that everything should be offered to Krsna, and afterward we shall enjoy the effects. Keep Reading

The Whole Devotional Process is Purificatory Process.

Jñānagamya: It is the highest blasphemy.

Prabhupāda: Huh?

Jñānagamya: It is the highest blasphemy, isn’t it? If one says, “I am God.”

Prabhupāda: No, highest ignorance, highest rascaldom. (laughter) Yes. How one can become God? If one can become God, that means the such-and-such, he was God. Then how he has become dog? That is another rascaldom, ambition.

Jñānagamya: A devotee is only supposed to want service, and sometimes he very much wants to be liberated to be finished with all this difficulty, isn’t it?

The Condition Of The World Is Worse Now

Richard Webster: Do you think it’s worse now than it used to be? Can you say that it is worse, the condition of the world is worse now than it used to be or is it relatively the same or…?

Prabhupāda: Oh, yes, yes. Worse now in these days because people cannot eat even. The facility which is given to the birds and beasts… They have no problem of eating. But you have created such a civilization that people are facing the problem so acutely that they have no means to eat. Do you think it is progress?

The Spoken Language in the Spiritual World is….

Yes, Sanskrit is spoken not only on Krishna Loka but also in higher planets, of the demigods. It is called the language of God and the demigods. It was spoken also on this planet, when people were all godly, they used to speak in Sanskrit. Sanskrit is the origin of all languages of the civilized peoples. It is most perfect, not only descriptive; the word “Sanskrit” means “the most perfect”. Because not a single word you can pronounce without having a bonafide principle. It is not like the English language, “but, put” with irrational difference in pronunciation, no principles. Sanskrit isn’t like that. Keep Reading
