2042) Whether I know one life time is sufficient to go back home, back to Godhead! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————– You know the story of Yamala-arjuna. So they were given the place in the dhäma, Vrndävana-dhäma, as a tree, but they had to waste time for so many hundreds years. Although there is guarantee, anyone who is in dhäma, he’ll get the shelter of the lotus feet of Krsna, but not… Why should we waste your time to become a tree or a monkey or a hog or a dog? Don’t waste. You should be very careful. Don’t commit any offense in the dhäma. Then one life is sufficient to go back to home, back to Godhead. Tyaktvä deham punar janma naiti mäm eti kaun… [Bg. 4.9]. If you actually live in Vrndävana carefully, without committing any offense and sinful life, then in this life you are going to Krsna. Krsna says, janma karma me divyam yo jänäti tattvatah. To live in Vrndävana means to know Krsna—how He appeared there, how He played here, how He executed His pastimes here. Janma karma divyam. These are all celestial, all transcendental. ——————————
