2223) Whether I know how important to accept responsibility! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————— The devotional service… The mind, being engaged on the lotus feet of Krsna, as Ambarisa Mahäräja did: sa vai manah krsna-padäravindayor vacämsi vaikunöha-gunänuvarnane… [SB 9.4.18]. Ambarisa Mahäräja was very responsible emperor of the world, but he fixed up his mind on the lotus feet of Krsna and he engaged his words simply: vaikunöha-gunänuvarnane, simply describing the qualities, the transcendental qualities of Krsna. ——————–

2222) Whether I know why one does suffer! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———————- Pradyumna: “There are many results of past sinful activities for which we are suffering at the present moment, and we may be suffering in the future due to our present sinful activities, but all of these reactions to sinful deeds can immediately be stopped if we take to Krsna consciousness.”

Prabhupäda: Yes.

Pradyumna: “As evidence for this…”

Prabhupäda: Krsna consciousness, if we take to Krsna consciousness, automatically we become immune from sinful activities. ————-———-

2221) Whether I know what samala means! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——————————- But so long I stick to this designation, I am not nirmala, I am samala, “with dirty things.” So we have to be relieved from these dirty things and come to the original position of Krsna consciousness. Then our sinful activities and its reaction will be counteracted. ———————–

2220) Whether I know what nirmalam means! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

2220) Whether I know what nirmalam means! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——————- That is liberation. Sarvopädhi-vinirmuktam tat-paratvena nirmalam [Cc. Madhya 19.170]. Nirmalam means liberation. That nirmalam means sarvopädhi-vinirmuktam. The Vaisnava process is to become nirmalam. Tat-paratvena. A real, pure Vaisnava simply identifies himself as a servant of Krsna; therefore he’s nirmalam, he’s liberated. He does not identify himself as a ksatriya, brähmana, American, Indian. No. That is not his position. ——————————

2219) Whether I know I am eternal servant of Krsna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————— So… And when we come to this knowledge, that “I am eternal servant of Krsna,” then I am liberated. Muktir hitvä anyathä rüpam svarüpena vyavasthitih [SB 2.10.6]. Hitvä anyathä rüpam. I am accepting a different type of body and different type of position, and I am identifying what myself with that particular position. That is my ignorance. Although I am acting just like a perfect brähmana or perfect ksatriya or perfect vaisya, still, I am imperfect, because my perfection is not to act as a vaisya, brähmana, ksatriya, American, Indian, but to act as servant of Krsna. That is liberation. —————————-

2218) Whether I know what knowledge and ignorance are! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

2218) Whether I know what knowledge and ignorance are! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————- This is taught by Caitanya Mahäprabhu. Gopi-bhartur pada-kamalayoh däsa-däsänudäsah [Cc. Madhya 13.80]. He, Caitanya Mahäprabhu, says, “I am not a brähmana. I am not a südra. I am not a brahmacäri. I am not a sannyäsi.” In this way… Because we identify with the varnäsrama-dharma: “I am brähmana,” “I am sannyäsi,” “I am brahmacäri,” “I am grhastha,” “I am ksatriya.” These are our designations. But when we become designation-free, then “I am not brähmana, I am not brahmacäri, I am not this, I am not that. I am simply pure servant of Krsna.” This is knowledge. Our otherwise, anything we identify, that is ignorance. This is knowledge. ———————-

2217) Whether I know what perfect knowledge is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——————- Similarly, when we have perfect knowledge… What is that perfect knowledge? The perfect knowledge: to understand that “I am eternal servant of Krsna.” This is perfect knowledge. This is perfect knowledge. Jivera svarüpa haya nityera krsnera däsa [Cc. Madhya 20.108]. One has to understand this fact, that “I am not Krsna. I am not like Krsna. I am not equal to Krsna. I cannot become Krsna. I am Krsna’s eternal servant.” ——–————–
