Sincere Enquiry

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

Every day morning we sing this kirtan: "Jivana anitya yanaha sara tahe nana-vidha vipada bara: remember that life is temporary and full of all kinds of danger." Life is always temporary, but how can you during this temporary life attain something eternal? This is what we must all understand. You must search for the eternal things, you must find where the original source is.

We must ask honestly: Who am I? Why do I suffer? What is my benefit? What is the goal? How to attain that goal? We must ask ourselves these five questions. Sanatan Goswami asked Mahaprabhu these questions and got the answers for us—these answers are given in Chaitanya-charitamrita for our benefit. If we cannot understand it, we have no hope...

If we serve the Lord, we will get super benefit. Otherwise life is about janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi (birth, death, old age, and disease). If we do not understand these things and always hear the antithesis, it is bad for us...

Lacking Manpower
'If you do not have so much manpower, do not make a temple in that place. First you must make devotees through preaching, then you can start a preaching centre.'

 

Namo namah tulasi maharani
'O Tulasi, you shower mercy upon one who offers you incense, lamps, foods, worship, and flowers.'
নমো নমঃ তুলসী মহারাণি

Everything comes from Krishna, and He also gave the solution, the siddhanta—if we follow
that, we can overcome maya, we can overcome all problems.
