May 12

Reading from Srimad Bhagavatam
http://srimadbhagavatam.com/1/1/20/en

Maharaj discusses the confusion surrounding the incarnation of the Personality of Godhead.  Concocting an “incarnation” is now an ordinary business.  Those with little intelligence claim everyone is a God.  However, when God actually comes, He does not claim to be God, but makes himself to be an ordinary son of devotees, that He might enjoy filial relations.  There is no question of man becoming God through meditation or sacrifice.

In the second sloka, we see that the conditions within the present age of Kali make it impractical to attain self-realization by prolonged meditation or great sacrifices.  Chanting the holy names and remembering the pastimes of the Lord in the association of genuine devotees are the recommended activities for this age.

Here is the recording of 12 May 2009 satsanga.
