Those who chant the name of Krsna with strong attachment achieve the fruit of love of God very soon. This name liberates one from the fear of the material world, therefore it is known as tarak brahma. While offering their dues and presents in worship, the predominating deities of all planets touch the lotus feet of the Lord with their crowns.
Maya-saktithe shadow of the internal energy, acts through the three modes of nature, which are the cause of this material world. Under the shelter of Sri Krsna’s name the mirror of the heart is cleansed and the living entity gets krsna-prema very quickly.
Performing activities according to the Vedic injunctions, the living entities take birth again and again within this material world. When will providence give me Krsna’s association? Remembering the company of Radha, He soon quietly slips out of bed and leaves for the forest bower.
The devotees whose minds are fixed on hearing and chanting Krsna’s glories in pure love have no taste for other activities. They are pleased by the jokes of Lalita and the other sakhisand surrounded by these friends, They become eager to engage in sports like swinging, roaming in the forest, playing in the water, hiding Krsna’s flute, love-making, drinking honey and worshiping the sun-god.
What, then, is the use of fruitive activities, which are naturally painful from the very beginning and transient by nature, if they are not utilized for the devotional service of the Lord? The Mukunda-mala-stotra 37 says one must first give up his identification with the material body:.
You destroy the miseries of those who take Your shelter. Seeing Krsna come before My eyes has returned life to My body. Radha replied, O sakhiI don’t see any way He will come.
How will I get attachment for topics concerning You? This is called viparyayah asmrtih. The path given in the Vedas is the real path of bhakti. Be merciful and kindly hear my words.
One should not criticize a preacher of the glories of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra. It tolerates scorching heat and torrents of rain, yet it still gives shelter to others. Your beloved, the best of heroes, will come soon. It is offensive to consider chanting the Hare Krsna mantra to be a religious ritualistic ceremony. O Krsna, persons with fixed minds have hoped for a long time that Bhajaan will return to Madhupuri, which is filled with intense rahhasya.
I am therefore most fallen and poor. The cause of Krsna’s mercy is inconceivable, that is, His mercy is causeless.
The fifth offense is to consider the glories of the holy name to be exaggerations. Within the heart of one who is full of anger or pride, or lamentation on the state of his wife or sons, there is no possibility of Krsna being manifest.
These qualities are given in the Upadesamrta O best of Kings, if you want to achieve the highest knowledge by which you may attain the supreme abode, then perform Govinda kirtana with firm faith. Our hearts are burning with intense desires generated by Your beautiful smiling glances. Although the birds sang sweetly, the songs were not pleasing, as they woke Radha and Krsna from Their sleep. How can we go back to Vraja? Then within a short time, bhava transcendental emotions will be awakened.
The advanced devotee who is inclined to spontaneous loving service should follow the activities of a particular associate of Krsna in Vrndavana. As soon as irrevocable loving service is established in the heart, the effects of nature’s modes of passion and ignorance, such as lust, desire, and hankering, disappear from the heart.
The proficiency of the creator in making the form of Krsna is glorified in the following words of the Srimad Bhagavatam 3. In the Garuda Purana it is said:. While chanting, other methods of atonement are prohibited.
Symptoms of the development of unalloyed devotion are given in the Srimad Bhagavatam Simply by decorating ourselves with the garlands, fragrant oils, clothes and ornaments that You have already enjoyed, and simply by eating the remnants of Your meals, we, Your maid servants, will indeed conquer Your illusory energy. Even though the spirit soul and this material world are simultaneously one with and different from Krsna, still, Krsna in His eternal form exists separately. In the eyes of a devotee, the heavenly planets, the planet of Lord Brahma, sovereignty over the earth or the lower planets, and attainment of the eight or eighteen mystic perfections are all insignificant.
Devotion, direct experience of the Supreme Lord, and detachment from other things these three occur simultaneously for one who has taken shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, in the same way as pleasure, nourishment, and relief from hunger come simultaneously and increasingly, with each bite for a person engaged in eating. O Goddess, please rescue this unfortunate person drowning in the ocean of unhappiness. My dear Lord, when will my eyes be beautified by filling with tears that constantly glide down as I chant Your holy name?
I have no desire to take birth with the opulence of Lord Brahma in the house of one averse to You. It is not a material name under any condition, and it is no less powerful than Krsna Himself.
The Ganges waters do not become polluted. In this way one should give up the propensity for material sense enjoyment. Give up all other religious practices and all fruitive activities, for the holy name is the only essential practice.
