2266) Whether I know I need to protect Vedic Civilization! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————– Not only that. I think, from historical point of view, this whole planet was India, Bharata-varsa. This planet was called Bharata-varsa — not this portion of land. But because gradually the Vedic culture became diminished, they separated from this Vedic culture, as we have got actual experience, and within twenty years the Pakistan is taken away from India.

So if follow that policy that one who is born in India as brahmana, except him, nobody can become brahmana, then this Vedic civilization will be, in due course of time, lost. —————–————-

2265) Whether I know how important it to take care of low-grade families! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———————- Those who are born in low-grade family… The most regrettable fact is that in India the brahmanas and Vaisnavas, they did not take care of the fallen souls. Once one becomes, somehow or other, a Muhammadan, he has no more chance to come back to the Hindu society. This policy was being followed. And therefore the result is that these fallen souls, whom we call fallen souls, the Muhammadans, they partitioned. Now we are crying. ————————–

2264) Whether I know what paropakara is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——————— Krsna says, ye ‘pi syuh papa-yonayah. Never mind one is born in low-grade family, but he can go back to home, back to Godhead. Te ‘pi yanti param gatim. So who will take the initiative to elevate these persons? Unless one who is expert does take interest for elevating these fallen souls, then how they will be elevated? This is problem. But we are not careful about these affairs. Caitanya Mahaprabhu therefore indicated that,

bharata-bhumite manusya janma haila yara

janma sarthaka kari’ kara paropakara  [Cc. Adi 9.41]

This is paropakara. ———————-————-

2263) Whether I know the elevated should elevate low grade people! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————- So the problem is that at the present moment we are not taking care… I mean that our Indian brahmanas, those who are spiritual leaders, they are not actually taking care of the fallen souls. But in the Bhagavad-gita it is sanctioned, it is said clearly: mam hi partha vyapasritya ye ‘pi syuh papa-yonayah [Bg. 9.32]. Any person born of low-grade family, papa-yoni, striyo vaisyas tatha sudras te ‘pi yanti param gatim... So it is the duty of the elevated person, brahmanas and Vaisnavas, to take charge of this business. —————-

——————– One may question how he becomes purified. He’s born in a family of dog-eaters. How he becomes purified? It requires… According to Smarta consideration, he requires next birth. There are two processes of Vedic understanding, Smarta-vicara and Gosvami-vicara. According to Smarta-vicara, unless a person born in a low-grade family takes another birth, he cannot be eligible to become a brahmana. But according to Gosvami-vicara, if he’s properly initiated by a bona fide Vaisnava, then he becomes more than a brahmana. Svadyo ‘pi sadyah. Immediately he becomes eligible to perform sacrifices. ————-———————

———————- A devotee, although born in the family of dog-eaters, the lowest of the mankind, but if he’s Vaisnava, initiated, diksa-vidhanena, then he becomes eligible to perform sacrifice. That is officially accepted, that a Vaisnava, even born of dog-eaters’ family... Kirata-hunandhra-pulinda-pulkasa abhira-sumbha yavanah khasadayah, ye’nye ca papa [SB 2.4.18]. These are the list of low-grade human society, kirata-hunandhra. And there may be others also. (Hindi) There may be others. Ye ‘nye ca papa. Anye — any kinds of sinful man, sudhyanti yad-upasrayasrayah, if such men take shelter of a pure devotee, then he purifies him. Sudhyanti. ———————–

2260) Whether I know who can perform yajna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————-So the distinction is being made by Jiva Gosvami that a brahmana, son of a brahmana, awaits so many ritualistic ceremonies before he is competent to perform yajna. Not that because he’s born of a brahmana father, therefore he becomes eligible to perform yajna. He requires primarily so much purificatory methods. But a Vaisnava, one who has taken to devotional service, for him, it is said, sadyah savanaya kalpate. As soon as he becomes a devotee, he becomes eligible to perform yajna. Savanaya kalpate. That means preference is given to the devotee (more) than to the son of a brahmana. —-
