May 05

To honor the appearance of Lord Nrsimhadev, Sripad Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja read a discourse given by Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaja.

  • Nothing happens without the sanction of the Lord. Whether expressed for good or bad, all power comes from Him.
  • Scientists try to explain the world’s phenomena by various “forces” — gravity, electromagnetic force, strong force, weak force — yet they have no idea where such forces come from.
  • Scientists try to claim that force has a material origin. Yet, material objects have no power to move on their own. Thus matter cannot be the source of the forces that we observe.
  • Life is animate, life can move on its own. Life cannot be material because it is endowed with willpower or free will — it can move by itself.
  • Willpower is a strong force. Many wonderful things have been erected in this world, not by man per se, but by the force of willpower within him. Yet, scientists are neglecting this kind of power.
  • The Will of God is another force which is manifested throughout the universe, especially by the stability of planetary orbits. If Newton’s Law was the active force controlling the position of the planets over the billions of years the universe has been in existence, the planets would have already been dispersed throughout the universe.
  • Sripad Puri Maharaja then read from the Catuh Sloki of Srimad Bhagavatam 2.9.33, concluding with: “These scriptures make it very clear what we are supposed to understand, what we are supposed to do with our lives, what is the purpose of it all, and what is the secret of it all.”
