(Compiled from notes on lectures of H. H. Mahavishnu Goswami)
Gurudeva continued the lecture today morning, on the same verses from Srimad Bhagavatam 3.32.34-35-36, for the third consecutive day.
Maharaja said that only the Vedic literature can provide us the true knowledge. Putting this knowledge into practice is Srimad Bhagavatam Vedic culture which will save us from all kinds of miseries. Any touching sensation is the womb of miseries. Gurudeva gave an example of a pillow. As long as we touch it we find it soft and it also gives us nice sleep. But on the contrary sleep stops us from reading and chanting. Every material thing is a womb of miseries unless used for the service of Krishna. People of Western culture and their idea of unwanted men-women relations call our scriptures a mythology only because it is impossible for them to imagine the cycle of 8.400.000 births. Nowadays women are exploited in the name of liberation. Western clothing is a nasty idea. Distinction between men and women is a natural way, it cannot be changed. First of all women, should be given protection more than liberation. Unless women and children are protected the whole society cannot progress, and when there is no progress you loose faith in the real process which is only Krishna bhakti.
Today's societies are shameless. Even a thought of building relationship with women other than wife is similar to doing it. These bad thoughts should be stopped and the only process is doing continuous Harinam Kirtan. Especially this young age is for learning the scriptures and not going behind men and women. There is nothing in the material body except bags of stool and urine. Only because of the presence of our Parmatama in our heart do we not stink bad when sitting together. Why are you proud of this filthy material body? Open your eyes and use your brain Maharaja said, “Honor the scriptures. Read the Bhagavad gita and Srimad Bhagavatam. The nectar is already there, the only the thing is to use your intelligence. Pay attention to scriptures rather than food. Nothing remains in the stomach for long but everything remains in the brain at some corner for ever. Therefore fill your brain with these unique scriptures which will stay with your soul eternally. Everything is possible if you have the will, Kali yuga is just an excuse. Even in this age of Kali yuga nothing stopped Prabhupada from spreading this Krishna consciousness movement throughout the world. When there is no sincere desire, Kaliyuga works because we permit. Please, please, please - stop all nonsense activities and read as much as possible. And with reading research is necessary. Mere study of phenomena is wrong, real knowledge is to search the original cause. Everything takes time, read, read and read. The more you read about Krishna the more He reveals.
