*Yamaraj's Greatest Concern*
Yamaraj is the demigod who records all of our pious and evil deeds.The servants of Yamaraj approached him and complained aboutsomething they were very concerned about. Here is the conversationbetween Yamaraj and his Yamaduta servants.
Yamaduta 1: How are you Prabhuji?
Yamaraj: I am doing well. But you look a little tense.
Yamaduta 1: Yeah Prabhu. We are little held with few matters.
Yamaraj: Oh. Let me know your issues.
Yamaduta 1: I am worried about this hell.
Yamaraj: Why? What has happened?
Yamaduta 1: Hell is getting empty by each passing day and if this situation will continue then we need to close hell down.
Yamaraj: But why, what is happening?
Yamaduta 1: This is just because of a devotee of Krishna.
Yamaraj: Devotee? How come a devotee is doing such miracle?
Yamaduta 1: This devotee is a representative of Krishna and although he has already left his material body and returned tothe spiritual world his magic is still working like anything.
Yamaraj: About whom you are talking about?
Yamaduta 2: Prabhuji - It is obvious - Srila Prabhupada. I don't know what he told his followers but they are preaching andpreaching and preaching, and because of their preaching - Noone is coming to this hell.
Yamaraj: Yes, you are right this is a concern.
Yamaduta 1: Even we cannot touch them or take them to hell.
Yamraj: Why? They would have done some mistakes and for certain mistakes take them to my hell.
Yamaduta 1: We can't take them. Everyone is going to Krsna loka because they know a transcendental secret.
Yamaraj: Which transcendental secret?
Yamaduta 1: They know that "In whatever state you will quit your body; in your next birth you will attain the same body."That's why every devotee keeps chanting Krsna's name andnever stops chanting. They practice to chant the Lord's holyname so at the time of death they are able to attain the Lord.
Where ever they go - they keep on chanting Hare Krsna mantra which is so powerful that these devotees are very sharp and smart- They always chant loudly so that people around themcan also hear. The sound is everywhere . Some senior devotees are totally renounced and are travelling from country to country giving classes on Krishna consciousness. There are others that sent regular weekly wisdom emails in order to give spiritual guidance. What shall we do? We are in big trouble if hell isto close. We will all lose our jobs.
Yamaraj: This is a big issue and problem for hell. But at least I am happy that we still have a lot of prisoners in hell.
Yamaduta 2: No Prabhu. These devotees are very cunning. Srila Prabhupada has revealed every secret to them. These people are observing ekadasi to give benefits to their forefathers, so we don't have much population in hell.
Yamaraj: Oh no.
Yamaduta 1: Especially because of Indira ekadasi. Due to Indira ekadasi - lot of souls have been released from hell. Asstated in garuda purana, someone who is suffering in hell cannot practice Krishna consciousness, because this requires some mental peace, which the reactionary tortures of hell makes impossible. However if a relative of a sinner suffering in hell gives some charity in the name of the sinner, he can leave hell and enter the heavenly planets. But if the sinner's relative observes Indira ekadasi fasting for his suffering kinsman, the kinsman goes directly to the spiritual world.
Yamaduta 2: and Moreover - They observe every single ekadashi as per directions by Srila Prabhupada and giving comforts to their forefathers in this hell.
Yamaraj: Oh my Krishna. I am getting concerned with these devotees.
Yamaraj: Why don't you put these devotees in some turbulence so that they will be afraid and will forget to chant Hare Krsna?
Yamaduta 2: Prabhuji - It's not easy- whenever we create some problems for these devotees - They start chanting Hare Krishna mantra and thank Krishna for giving a test for their purification. They are not afraid of any problem. They think that whenever Krsna sends some problem this means that Krsna loves them and is testing their sincerity. They are not afraid of anything. They know that Krishna is everywhere. They sing Hare Krishna mantra in every situation. They are making us mad. We are really sitting idle just because of these devotees.
Yamaraj: Oops. We are really in troubles.
Yamaduta 1: Even One more problem is there.
Yamaduta 1: They are making every place as Vrindavana.
Yamaraj: How come?
Yamaduta 1: They are building new temples and spending money in Krsna's service. They have installed so many deities in every one's home. I can't tell you that these devotees are making such a big mess in this material world. I am sure - If they will work with this speed - They will make everyone to go from this world to KrsnaLoka.
Yamaraj: Oh my Krsna!! Save us from these devotees.
Yamaduta 1: Yeah. Better to request Krishna to give us another job.
Yamaraj: What is their mantra?
Yamaduta 1 & Yamaduta 2 (In Chorus): Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama - Rama Rama Hare Hare. And suddenly Yamaduta 1 and Yamaduta 2 become invisible and Yamaraj understood they were going upwards to thespiritual plane.
Then Yamaraj started chanting ----
"Hare Krsna Hare Krsna - Krsna Hare Hare , Hare Rama Hare Rama – Rama Rama Hare Hare.
Suddenly - I heard my clock “ring, ring, ring “- It's 4:00 am. It's 04:00 am - It was a dream. But yeah never stop preachingeven in dreams.
