Discussion with Sriman Devashis Prabhu and Vishakha Devi Dasi, 14 October 2018.
"Karma means action. It is the law of this material world, 'To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction'. This is Newton's third law. As yet, no one has broken that law. And there is good karma and bad karma."
“There are many things that we may not understand in our young age, but when we get experience and old age, then many things will become clear in front of us. Time can give us some consciousness.”
“They want to know how many hands Mahavishnu has, they want to know how many legs Nrsimhadev has, they want to know how Nrsimhadev is eating ... someone is telling, “This scripture said this, this scripture said that”—but nothing will come for my spiritual benefit!” Srila Gurudev speaks with humour and caution on the knowledge-seeking attempt.
In this interview Braja Mohini Devi Dasi of USA discusses Srila Gurudev’s love and affection and all-accommodating nature, and of a life consecrated to the service of His Divine Grace.
“When Mahaprabhu said that there is no alternative other than chanting the Holy Name of the Lord, then it is not necessary to go left or right or anywhere else. Be steady, be faithful, and try, and success must come to you.”
“You went to the ocean of ecstasy but you did not receive even one drop of that ecstasy. You went there but came back empty handed, therefore I consider you to be very foolish.”
