2474) Whether I know I don’t want anything other than the association of devotee! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————- Bahir-mukha-brahma-janma nahi mora asa. “And if I become nondevotee and take my birth as Lord Brahma, I don’t want it. Let me become an insect in the house of a devotee.” This is the aspiration… The same thing is explained here. Because without the benediction of a pure devotee, it is not possible to enter into the path of devotional service.   ——–————

2472) Whether I know what punar janma is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———– Because Krsna says, “The pure devotee, after giving up this body…” Tyaktva deham punar janma naiti [Bg. 4.9]. Punar janma means to take birth in one of the planets, or in one of the species of, out of eight million four hundred thousand species of life. That is called punar janma.  ————–———

2471) Whether I know a pure devotee never be offered material benefits! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——– A-brahma-bhuvanal lokah punar avartino ‘rjuna [Bg. 8.16]. Again we have to come back. Ksine ksine punye martya-lokam visanti [Bg. 9.21]. So this botheration is not very much liked by the pure devotee. Pure devotee does not… Even if he’s offered such… Of course, a pure devotee (is) never offered such material benefits.  ———-——-

2473) Whether I know I want to be with devotees  forever! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———– But the devotees who are following Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s instruction, they do not mind, even there is birth again. Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, janmani janmani bhavatad bhaktir ahaituki tvayi. So even there is birth… Just like Bhaktivinoda Thakura says, kita janma hao yatha tuya dasa.My dear Lord, if You like that I shall take birth again, so kindly give my birth in a place where there is Your devotee.” That is wanted.  ———————-

2469) Whether I know unless I become niskincana, I can’t enter into devotional service! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————- Niskincana means who has no more anything materially desires. He has finished. The, another verse:
tasmad gurum prapadyeta  jijnasuh sreya uttamam
sabde pare ca nisnatam brahmany upasamasrayam [SB 11.3.21]
One who has accept…, accepted the lotus feet of the Lord, brahmany upasama, he has finished the material desires — no more material desires. Niskin… That is called niskincana. Caitanya Mahaprabhu also said, niskincanasya bhagavad-bhajanonmukhasya. Bhagavad-bhajanonmukha, those who are actually desiring to be entered into the path of devotional service, must be niskincana.  ————————-

2468) Whether I know my Guru must be Niskincana! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———- Pradyumna: “In the Srimad-Bhagavatam it is also confirmed by Prahlada Maharaja that merely by personal efforts or by the instructions of higher authorities one cannot attain to the stage of devotional service. One must become blessed by the dust of the lotus feet of a pure devotee who is completely freed from the contamination of material desires.”
Prabhupada: Yes. Niskincanam, the devotee, the… You have to select a guru who is niskincana. ——————-

2467) Whether I know we have Vaisnava-sampradaya! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

2467) Whether I know we have Vaisnava-sampradaya! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———— Guru-krsna-krpaya paya bhakti-lata-bija [Cc. Madhya 19.151]. Therefore the process is, as recommended by Srila Rupa Gosvami, adau gurvasrayam. You must select, you must accept the guru who’s coming in parampara system. Evam parampara-praptam imam rajarsayo viduh [Bg. 4.2]. Sampradaya. That is recommended. We have got Vaisnava-sampradaya, four sampradaya: Ramanuja-sampradaya, Madhva-sampradaya, Nimbarka-sampradaya. So intelligent persons should select guru from these sampradayas and follow his instruction. Then the path of devotional service will be very easily opened. This is the way.  ———-———–
