PQPA—6. The Perfect Devotee———-February 29, 1972, evening

687) Whether I know what is samsiddhi! Taught by Srila prabhupada!

—— Srila Prabhupäda: Samsiddhi.

Bob: Yes.

Srila Prabhupäda: Sam means complete.

Bob: Yes.

Srila Prabhupäda: And siddhi means perfection. In the Bhagavad-gitä it is stated that one who goes back home, back to Godhead, has attained the complete perfection. So perfection comes when one realizes that he is not this body; he is spirit soul. Brahma-bhüta [SB 4.30.20]—that is called Brahman realization. That is perfection. And samsiddhi comes after Brahman realization, when one engages in devotional service. Therefore if one is already engaged in devotional service, it is to be understood that Brahman realization is there. Therefore it is called samsiddhi. –——————————–
