Heaven Is Not Home

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Caracas, Venezuela
20 September 2009

 

Question: Can someone who is in heaven, svarga, commit some bad karma, bad activities and fall down to some hellish planet?

Anyone who is in heaven has to come down. Heaven is temporary.

Here [at the devotees' house] it is like heaven, but if somebody goes to some bad house, that is hell. Also, you have now come here to this house, but you will have to go back to your home.

Everybody has to go—even all thirty-three million of demigods—Kali, Durga, Laksmi, Ganesh... They are staying there now, but it is temporary and one day they have to come back from heaven.

You can say that Laksmi Devi is the wealth minister, Saraswati Devi is the education minister, Durga, Kali are the power minister—just as here in Caracas there is a prime-minister, an education minister, but any time they can go to some other place.

So, everybody has to go and change their position. It is said in the scriptures also that somebody who has a human body can become Kali, Durga, Laksmi Devi or some other demigod.

Practise and Believe
'If you remove material desires from your heart, you will get great happiness through that. If we practise, we will be able to believe, but our problem is that if we do not see something we do not believe in it.'

 

Ei-bara karuna kara
'In every birth I aspire for the dust of your feet. Be merciful to Narottam, considering him your own.'
এইবার করুণা কর

You think you will go to a secluded place to chant the Holy Name, but you will end up in a 'gita samsar'.
