Connecting Devotees Worldwide - In Service Of Srila Prabhupada

1. We are NOT these Bodies

2. We are Spirit Souls

3. Spirit Souls are parts and Parcels of the Supreme Lord , and are ETERNAL , FULL OF BLISS , FULL OF KNOWLEDGE

4. All of Us ARE Pure in Consciuosness By Nature , But currently we are conditioned

5. As Spirit Souls, Our Existence is for The Pleasure of the Lord

6. All of Us Have an Eternal Constitutional Position in the Spiritual Kingdom

7 . We are meant to Serve the Lord in that Constitutional Position

8. We can be Blissful and Satisfied , ONLY and ONLY when we Serve the Lord in that Constitutional Position

9. The Supreme Lord Has Gifted each Soul with a Free Will

10. The Free Will is to either SERVE Him , Or Try to ENJOY separate from the Lord

11. For Those Souls , who Opt to enjoy separate from the Lord , He facilitates that Enjoyment by Creating this Material World

12. Such Souls is transferred to this Material world

13. 8.4 million types of Bodies are Created for the Soul to enjoy differently ( each body offers a unique type of sense gratificatory pleasure)

14. For the Soul to be able to enjoy this Material World , it is important that It forgets it's real Identity

15. Hence there is an Illusionary Energy of the Lord , which Covers the Pure Consciuosness of the Soul

16. The Soul is given 2 types of coverings : Gross ( Body and Senses) and Subtle ( Mind , Intelligence and False ego)

17 .The Soul then begins it's Journey through various Species , always getting attached to the facilities in that Body

18. Like Different dreams that we see on different nights , The Soul experiences the Pleasures and Sorrows of this Material World , Thinking that That is the Only Reality

19 . The Soul Identifies itself with the Body that it is in , And believes in its Gender ( Male , female) , Nationality( US , Indian ) , Qualities ( Intelligence , Strenght , Beauty etc), Relationships( Mother , Father , Wife, Son, Daughter , Brother , Sister)

20. Moving around in the Material World , The Soul totally Forgets It's Eternal position in the Spiritual Kingdom

21 . But the Lord , Being the Supreme Merciful Father , wants His Children Back with Him

22. Hence , He has designed This Material World as a Place where everything is temporary and always interspersed with Miseries

23. The Soul Tries to search for and runs after Happiness in different Things of the Material world , just as a Deer Runs after a Mirage , but finally dies of thirst .

23. When The Soul gets a Human Form of life , that is the ONLY opportunity to regain the Pure Consciuosness , to Wake up from the Dream , to put an end to This Aimless journey and Go

Back Home , Back to Godhead

24. Belief in the Lord does Not mean Devotion to the Lord. Devotion to the Lord means desiring to get back to our eternal position of Service to the Lord as quickly as possible .

25. Devotion to the Lord Means Learning to unwind ourselves from the cocoon of silk that we have woven around ourselves( Like a Silk worm, who eventually dies in that Cocoon)

26. Devotion to the Lord means being able to give up things which we are attached to , but are not good for Progress in Bhakti

27. We have to use all our Will power to break free from this network of senses and the sense objects , which pull us back , If we need to start Understanding the Lord

28. For This Iron Age of Kali , The Chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord is a Sure Method of Regaining our Pure Consciuosness

29 . Association of People who have Faith and Purity , Will give us Faith and Purity

30 . The Best Mantra in this Age , for Developing our Love for the Lord , is
" Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Ram Hare Ram Ram Ram Hare Hare "
