2188) Whether I know who a spiritual master is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
–————————- And sometimes we get the body of the King of Heaven, and sometimes we get the body of a hog for eating stool. This is going on. Nänä yoni brahman kare. We have to wander in different species of life and we have to eat all abominable things. Tära janma adhah-päte yäya.
So we should not spoil our life in that way, for creating another body. We should be very careful that we may not create another material body. And what is that safety position? Krsna says, janma karma me divyam yo jänäti tattvatah [Bg. 4.9]. If you simply try to understand Krsna, how Krsna takes His birth, how He becomes the son of Devaki, son of Nanda Mahäräja, how He becomes the son of Yasodä, these things, if we study, if we try to understand Krsna, if we don’t accept Krsna as ordinary man—avajänati mäm müdhä—then, in this way, if we understand the science of Krsna, yei krsna-tattva-vettä sei guru haya [Cc. Madhya 8.128], if one understands the science of Krsna, he is spiritual master. —————-—————
