2552) Whether I know devotional service is natural instinct! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———– This practice is not for developing something artificial. For example, a child learns or practices to walk. This walking is not unnatural. The walking capacity is there originally in the child, and simply by a little practice, he walks very nicely. Similarly, devotional service to the Supreme Lord is the natural instinct of every living entity.  ——————-

2551) Whether I know what devotional service in practice is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

2551) Whether I know what devotional service in practice is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——— Pradyumna: “Practice means employing our senses in some particular type of work. Therefore devotional service in practice means utilizing our different sensory organs in service to Krsna. Some of the senses are meant for acquiring knowledge, and some are meant for executing the conclusions of our thinking, feeling and willing. So practice means employing both the mind and the senses in practical devotional service.  —————–

————— So it is required. We have got so much treasure-house of knowledge. They should be, each and every book should be…, at least, Vaisnava literature, Bhagavata literature, should be translated into English and distributed all over the world. That is lokanam hita-karinau, to benefit the whole human society. Not to remain crippled within a boundary. That is not brahminism, that is not Vaisnavism. ———-——————-

——–——– Nana-sastra-vicaranaika-nipunau sad-dharma-samsthapakau lokanam hita-karinau. These Gosvamis, they compiled this… Rupa Gosvami compiled this Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu not for the study, a few selected persons. Lokanam hita-karinau: for the benefit of the whole human society. And actually that is happening. We have translated this Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu in English, and we have got the greatest sale of this book. Everyone is picking up. It is a study book in the Temple University of United States. They like it.  ——————————-

2548) Whether I know what statements are there in sastra! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————- So we have become crippled. Therefore we are talking this, that “This Krsna consciousness movement is killing our Hindu principles.” No. It is really, actually Vedic principle that one should be learned, and he should distribute the knowledge for paropakara. That is brahminism. Para-duhkha-duhkhi. Krpambudhir yas tam aham prapadye [Cc. Madhya 6.254]. Lokanam hita-karinau. These are the statements in the sastra.  ———–———

——— And brahmana’s duty is for paropakara. Pathana pathana yajana yajana dana pratigraha. Sat-karma-nipuno vipro mantra-tantra-visaradah, avaisnava-gurur na sa syat. A… One who is Vaisnava… Just like Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He becomes guru because He’s udara. Vaisnava means para-duhkha-duhkhi.
vancha-kalpatarubhyas ca krpa-sindhubhya eva ca
patitanam pavanebhyo…
[I offer my respectful obeisances unto all the Vaisnava devotees of the Lord. They can fulfill the desires of everyone, just like desire trees, and they are full of compassion for the fallen souls.]
Vaisnava is patitanam pavana. He can deliver all the fallen souls. —————————————————-

————— Therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu said,
bharata-bhumite manusya-janma haila yara
janma sarthaka kari’ kara paropakara [Cc. Adi 9.41]
It is the duty of the brahmana. Paropakara. And without being human being, how he can become a brahmana?  Cats and dogs cannot become brahmana. The perfect human being means brahmana, the first-class, perfect being. That is brahmana.  ———————
