2559) Whether I know faith is proof! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————- So Narada Muni inquired, “How do you believe this? The other person, the brahmana, he’s learned person. He did not believe. How do you believe it? What is your conviction?” He said, “Sir, I believe in this way, because I am sitting under this tree. This is a banyan tree. And so many,” what is called, “figs are falling down. And each fig there are thousands of small seeds, and in each seed there is a banyan tree. So if Narayana can keep thousands of banyan trees within this fig fruit, how it is not possible for Him to pull an elephant through the hole of a needle?”
So this is called faith. The faith is not blind. There is proof. ——-—–

————– So when he came back, the brahmana said, “Sir, you are… I offer my respectful obeisances unto you and Narayana. We cannot believe this, that through the needle or through the hole of a needle, a elephant is being passed, this side and that side.” And when it was informed to the cobbler, he began to cry. He said, “Oh, my Narayana is so powerful that He can do everything.” He believed immediately that “Yes, for Narayana it is possible to pull the elephant through the hole of the needle, this side and that.”  ———-——

————– So Narayana said, “The, this cobbler will be liberated in this life, and that brahmana will take some time, some many births.”
So Narada Muni became astonished that he, he was a learned scholar and brahmana, and he would take so much time, and the cobbler would be liberated in this life. “Oh, what is the reason, Sir?” So Narayana gave him one needle, and He requested him that “When they inquire what Narayana was doing, you can say that Narayana was pulling one elephant through the hole of the needle, this side and that side,” in this way.  —————

————- Narada Muni said, “Yes, I shall inquire.” Similarly, on the way, he met one cobbler. He also inquired Narada Muni where he was going, and he said, will you kindly inquire from Lord Narayana when he would be liberated? So when Narada Muni met Narayana, so he inquired — because he’s saintly person; he promised — that “Such and such brahmana inquired like this, and the, and a cobbler also inquired like this.”  ———————

2555) Whether I know my first duty is to become liberated! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———– As I explained yesterday, the potency is there in the seed. As Krsna says, bijo ‘ham sarva-bhutanam [Bg 7.10]. A big banyan tree is concentrated within a small seed, smaller than the mustard seed. There is the potency of a very big tree.
There is a story, it is very instructive story, that Narada Muni was passing to go to Vaikuntha, and on the way one very learned scholar, brahmana, met him, and he inquired from Narada Muni where he was going. Narada Muni said that “I am going to see Narayana, my Lord.” So the brahmana asked him, “Oh, you are going to meet Narayana. Will you kindly inquire for me when my…, when I shall be liberated.”  ——–—————

———— As soon as there is some thunderbolt strike, so they offer obeisances. As soon as they see a big sea, ocean, they offer obeisances. Offering obeisances to the great, that is natural. That is the gradual appreciation of the potency or energy of the Supreme Lord. Because whatever we see, whatever there is, they’re nothing but different manifestations of the energy of the Supreme Lord. Parasya brahmanah saktih. We can appreciate the potencies, the energies of the Supreme Lord, anywhere.  ———-———-

2553) Whether I know what Krsna consciousness is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————– Even the uncivilized men like the aborigines offer their respectful obeisances to something wonderful exhibited by nature’s law, and they appreciate that behind some wonderful exhibition or action there is something supreme. So this consciousness, though lying dormant in those who are materially contaminated, is found in every living entity. And, when purified, this is called Krsna consciousness.”
Prabhupada: So even in the minds of the jungle people, there is obedience to the Supreme.  ——————
