Science of Krsna Consciousness Comments Off on Sri Mahanet – November 2019

Only surrendered souls can properly distinguish substance from form; those who disregard Lord Hari to seek happiness on the empirical paths based on yoga and karma are simply on a suicidal course –

“O lotus-eyed one, the swans (topmost pure devotees, paramahamsas) take refuge in Your ecstasy-yielding lotus feet. O Universal Lord, those who do not accept the joy of the shelter of Your lotus feet and pursue the paths of abstract liberation and mundane acquisition – such persons are devastated by Your deluding potency.”[Bhagavatam, 11.29.3]

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar, Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam 2.24]

Only Sri Hari is capable of delivering the living being in all circumstances –

“”Persons such as those belonging to the races known as Kirata, Huna, Andhra, Pulinda, Pulkasa, Abhira, Sumbha (Kanka), Yavana, and Khasa – nay, persons of each and every sinful birth are perfectly purified without a doubt, by taking shelter of the devotees surrendered to Lord Visnu, the Almighty. I do offer my respectful obeisances unto Him.”” [Bhagavatam, 2.4.18]

One should take refuge in the fully self-satisfied Supreme Lord Hari; the shelter of ‘other gods’ yields a lamentably inferior result –

“Lord Krishna is perfectly replete in everything desirable, fully self-sufficient, poised and tranquil. Nothing can be astonishing for Him. Only a fool disregards Him to take shelter in any demigod whose propitiation may be prescribed for the accomplishment of worldly benefits. Such a person may be compared to one who seizes a dog’s tail in order to cross the ocean.” [Bhagavatam, 6.9.27]

The various tribulations of the unsurrendered souls are simply due to their obsession with the unreal –

“O Lord, as long as the people of the world do not take the safe and sound shelter of Your lotus feet, they remain full of anxiety about their wealth, their bodies, and their friends; overwhelmed with lamentation, hankering, obsession, and intense greed, they cannot obtain relief from the suffering which is deeply rooted in their imaginary conceptions of I and mine.”

[Bhagavatam, 3.9.6]

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar, Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam 2.21]

For persons devoid of a relationship with the Supreme Lord Hari, prevention of suffering cannot but be transitory –

“O Nrsimha, O Almighty Lord, precautions and remedies are only short-lived when attempted by the suffering embodied souls who are not favored by You. Parents are not the guardians of their child, medicine is not the cure for the diseased, and a boat is not the savior of a man drowning in the ocean.” [Bhagavatam, 7.9.19]

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar, Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam 2.20]
