The things that we see and take to be real all around us from the wall of our Facebook page to the words of our career counselor is not.
The reality is that there is God, who is the Supreme Controller, the Supreme Enjoyer and the Supreme Protector. His name is Krishna. He lives in his eternal abode of Goloka Vrindavan. His father is the king of this place named Nanda and his mother is the queen. All the living entities are his servants and for our own good we all should realize it.
They say that the current philosophy is BE POSITIVE and those who follow the ‘BE NEGATIVE’ philosophy hide behind the term practical. The reality is that we are not getting any younger, we are getting old. We are getting diseased and we are going to die.
Do you know? What is the MOST AMAZING THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD? It is that people are being devoured by death in flocks. Not one or two, they are flocking in the mouth of all feared death. But everyone thinks that he is immortal.
Now why are we reading about such a thing nowhere but here? It’s because that everywhere if they start spreading this FACT, we will stop spending. We will realize that all that we are doing, working hard day and night to get to a good university, working hard for years to maintain a family and bank balance is nothing but just a stupid waste of time. And when so will happen then THE WHOLE ILLUSION OF CONSUMERISM WILL COLLAPSE.
What will we be doing then? We will then become inquisitive about the right thing. We will wonder, at least, if THERE IS A GOD, if WE HAVE A SOUL INSIDE US.
We don’t have a soul inside us. We are the soul and according to Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. The soul is that part and parcel of the supreme personality of Godhead Shri Krishna. God is a person and he is very much anxious about our welfare that’s why we find evidence in classic Vedic texts like Shrimad Bhagavatam and Garuda Puran that He, Krishna came to us in the form of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to deliver us from this place in which there is danger at every step.
So BEING POSTIVE and thinking that we all will remain young, financially and physically stable is foolishness. BEING POSITIVE about the fact we are the spirit soul whose welfare and is to remain in the service of the supreme whole, Shri Krishna.
And how do we serve him? We serve him starting with the tongue as instructed by Shri Rup Goswami, one of the closest associates of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. By tongue you can chant Krishna’s holy names and taste the sanctified prasadam.
We here at ISKCON Ujjain have all the facilities available for all those who are seriously concerned about these most important questions of life. You don’t have to change your residence, job or looks. Just visit have prasadam, chant Krishna’s name and dance is ecstasy.
