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...

Leap Forward
'Everything must be used for the service to the Lord. In this world everything is created not for you, you are not the enjoyer, Krishna is the only enjoyer. You must remember this always and follow this.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord Damodara, I first of all offer my obeisances to the brilliantly effulgent rope which binds Your belly. I then offer my obeisances to Your belly, which is the abode of the entire universe. I humbly bow down to Your most beloved Srimati Radharani, and I offer all obeisances to You, the Supreme Lord, who displays unlimited pastimes.'

We cannot renounce anything. Whose property are you going to renounce?
Nothing is yours, so you cannot leave what is others'.
