Sweet Dreams

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

If Krishna calls, I am going, but those who are sleeping will sleep through the whole of their life. They will not be able to get there—they will come and go and will always sleep. It is a big problem.

Morning arati is called mangal arati, what does 'mangal' mean? 'Mangal' means good fortune, prosperity, benefit, auspicious. If you do not wake up at mangal arati, auspiciousness is ruined for you.

না লইনু সৎ মত অসতে মজিল বিত্ত
তুয়া পায়ে না করিনু আশ

na la-inu sat mata asate majila chita
tuya paye na karinu asa

I have never accepted the proper conception. My mind has been immersed in illusion, and I have never aspired for your feet.

Do you know how many hours Das Goswami Prabhu slept? One and a half hours. দেড় ঘন্টা (dera ghanta). Toilet, prasadam and sleeping—one and a half hours; and for the rest twenty-two and a half hours he did service. Both Jiva Goswami Prabhu and Das Goswami Prabhu lived like this. Think about it and remember it.

What will happen to you when you become 70 years old? You will not be able to come out of your hole the whole day.

জীব জাগ, জীব জাগ, গোরাচাঁন বলে ।
কত নিদ্রা যাও মায়া-পিশাচীর কোলে ॥
(আর কত কাল ঘুমাইবে ?)
(মায়া-পুশাচীর কোলে)

jiva jaga, jiva jaga, gorachanda bale
kata nidra yao maya-pisachira kole
(ar kata kal ghumaibe?)
(maya-pisachira kole)

Sri Gorachand calls, "O souls, awake! O souls, awake! How long will you sleep in the clutches of the witch Maya? How much longer will you sleep? How much longer will you sleep in the lap of the witch Maya?"

What does pisachi mean? It is petni (পেত্নী), a she-ghost, a witch. So, the souls are sleeping, attacked by a petni.

"Udila aruna purava-bhage": the sun arises in the East, and the mangal arati must be 1 hour 36 minutes before the sunrise. Remember it. It is a must. Before this time it is not necessary to rise.

Who is that witch? Your grandmother became a petni, a witch, and she is pressuring you. It is very clear. 'Maya pisachi' means your grandmother, grandfather always give you affection and when they die, they continue to give you so much affection, otherwise they cannot come to the Lord...

Step Forward
'Krishna is always waiting for our service, but the main thing that we must understand is that we must not only say we are disciples of Mahaprabhu, you will get the result when you follow His instruction, follow His advice.'

 

Samsara-davanala
'One who very carefully recites aloud this Sri Gurvastakam during the brahma-muhurta (the ninety-six minute period before sunrise) attains direct service to the Lord of Vrindavan at the end of life.'
শ্রীগুর্ব্বষ্টকম্

Through sadhu-sanga (good association) your senses and the mind will be controlled.
