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...

Sri Sri Gurvastakam
'I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, the ocean of goodness who assumes the form of a cloud of mercy to deliver the souls burning in the blazing fire of material existence.'

 

Ki-rupe paiba seva
'Maya, this witch, has put a noose round my neck, and, becoming blind and forgetting myself in the pleasures of the material world, I pass day and night.'
কিরূপে পাইব সেবা

Have we become a Vaishnav or do we only wear the dress of a Vaishnav? Do we practise
properly or do we pretend and show false renunciation? We must ask ourselves.
