Devotees' Love

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
30 April 2013

 

Question: Why did Mahaprabhu preach that prema (love) is the goal of life?

In this age of Kali, people's lifetime is very short, it is not like in Satya-yuga or Treta-yuga. In Satya-yuga, the lifetime is 100,000 years, in Treta-yuga the lifetime is 10,000 years, in Dvapar-yuga the lifetime is 1,000 years, and Kali-yuga's lifetime is 120 years. That is why Mahaprabhu taught that you can conquer others with love and affection, not by making others your enemy.

In this age of Kali, if you give people some love and affection, you can easily convert them. In this age, people live in family life, they love each other, but this is false love and affection because in this world when somebody loves somebody, it is for their own selfish interest. Mahaprabhu's interest, Mahaprabhu's love and affection is not like that.

Actually, the love and affection that pure devotees give is not false—through their love and affection you can easily conquer others' hearts. We are fallen souls, and those who are fallen souls do not know anything, so through love and affection Mahaprabhu conquered the whole world.

This is the process that Krishna Himself teaches, and this is what we teach too.

Glorious Parama Karuna
'It is such a glorious and happy day! Gaura Nitai wanted to come but They were searching who They would come with. When They finally got Gurudev's good association, They suddenly caught Gurudev's hand and came to Caracas.'

 

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'By Krsna's association, Brahma became devoted to Krsna's service. By Brahma's association, Narad Muni became devoted. After Narad came Krsna Dvaipayan Vedavyas. Purnaprajna Madhva Acharya declared he was Vyasa's servant. He was Padmanabha Tirtha's Guru.'
