BG-C 04-V 09—-“Cheater Leaders”—–29-03-1974, Bombay
419) Whether I know why I am meeting with so many problems! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————–Just like a rich man’s son. He has forgotten that his father is very rich, or his father has left immense property. But forgetting his real position, he’s loitering in the street, hungry. You can call him, “All right, you take some food.” That is not real benefit, that is temporary. But if you awaken his real consciousness, that he is the son of a very rich man, his father has got immense property, “Why don’t you go back to your father and be happy?” That is Krishna consciousness movement. That is stated here. Janma karma ca me divyam yo vetti tattvatah [Bg. 4.9]. One has to understand Krishna, tattvatah, in truth. Not superficially. What is Krishna? Krishna is the supreme leader. Nityo nityanam cetanas cetananam (Katha Upanisad 2.2.13). supreme leader, perfect leader, without any mistake, without any illusion, without any cheating, and without any imperfection of the senses. We have to take direction from such a leader, then our life will be successful. And because we are taking direction from imperfect leaders, cheater leaders, therefore we are meeting with so many problems. ———————
