Nectar of Devotion—Vrndavana, 30, October,1972—
2043) Whether I know if I have any attachment with anything of this world, I will have to take one more birth! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

So this is Vrndävana life of Krsna. So if we know Krsna, tattvatah… This tattvatah we discussed this morning.
manusyänäm sahasresu kascid yatati siddhaye
yatatäm api siddhänäm kascit vetti mäm tattvatah [Bg. 7.3]
So those who are living in Vrndävana, they should try to understand Krsna tattvatah. That is their business. Not that take advantage of Vrndävana and make some anyäbhiläsa, jnäna-karma. No. That means we are wasting time. You’ll get the chance because you have come to Vrndävana. Vrndävana’s so powerful. But if we commit offense and sinful activities, it will be delayed. My Guru Mahäräja used to say that “Don’t waste time. Don’t wait for another life. In this life, finish this business, to understand Krsna, and go back home, back to Godhead.” That is required. If one is businessman… Just like in business they want to execute business free, finish the business very quickly, similarly, because we see that such a devotee like Bhärata Mahäräja, because he was little attached to a calf, a deer calf... What is called?
Prabhupäda: Fawn. Yes. So he had to take the life of a deer next life. Just see. Such a great devotee, but because he was a little attached... Yam yam väpi smaran loke tyajaty ante kalevaram [Bg. 8.6]. So we should be very careful that even in Vrndävana, if we miss the point, if we are attached to something, then we have to accept another life, either as beast or tree. ————————-———————
