Kapila Muni instructs Devahuti

How a living entity takes birth?

Take out the last page. Yes it is from Third canto and it’s the first verse.


[Maharajji leads recitation of SB 3.31.1 twice]
śrī-bhagavān uvāca

karmaṇā daiva-netreṇa

jantur dehopapattaye

striyāḥ praviṣṭa udaraṁ

puṁso retaḥ-kaṇāśrayaḥ

[The Personality of Godhead said: Under the supervision of the Supreme Lord and according to the result of his work, the living entity, the soul, is made to enter into the womb of a woman through the particle of male semen to assume a particular type of body.](SB 3.31.1)
This verse destroys all our ignorance about the living entities’ birth. It is said wrongly, that there is no jīva from the first day of the conception. And so they can carry on the abortions. It is completely refuted by Vyāsa Bhagavān in this scripture. From the first day, and the first second of the conception, there is a growth involved, and thats why the jīva is already present. reta-kaṇāśraya he is always with the semen of the father. It’s already there, and then only the semen can work out. Otherwise semen can’t do anything. As it is semen doesn’t have any capacity to create. aha bīja-prada pitā [BG 14.4], Kṛṣṇa says that I am there to inject the jīva’s; it’s already put on the semen. And then as soon as the semen is injected in the female womb, the growth starts. This is given idea here. I’ll leave it to you to study.
śrī-bhagavān uvāca

karmaṇā daiva-netreṇa

jantur dehopapattaye

striyāḥ praviṣṭa udaraṁ

puṁso retaḥ-kaṇāśrayaḥ


[The Personality of Godhead said: Under the supervision of the Supreme Lord and according to the result of his work, the living entity, the soul, is made to enter into the womb of a woman through the particle of male semen to assume a particular type of body.](SB 3.31.1)
kalalaṁ tv eka-rātreṇa

pañca-rātreṇa budbudam

daśāhena tu karkandhūḥ

peśy aṇḍaṁ vā tataḥ param

[On the first night, the sperm and ovum mix, and on the fifth night the mixture ferments into a bubble. On the tenth night it develops into a form like a plum, and after that, it gradually turns into a lump of flesh or an egg, as the case may be.] (SB 3.31.2)

These verses about seven verses they give the idea about how the embryo grows. And where there is a growth, the atma must be there. And the Supersoul also must be there. It’s very sinful, just to disturb the living entity, in that delicate stage. He already develops his head and delicate limbs. And he tries to make himself safe, in his own house, mother’s womb. And suddenly the knife is pierced from somewhere and his body is cut and sucked out, that is abortion or some poisonous liquid is thrown on the delicate lady, the delicate living entity. Please in dream also, don’t do. And those who are already victimized please continuously chant, for living entity whom you have killed. The most disastrous effect is on the ladies. Man may forget. But lady looses her sanity if this is created. Please, please, all the miseries start from this sinful activity. And then in that stage he is fully conscious and he prays. {aside: Our mataji know the prayers, you know, are they here, please let them hear, are the ladies here who know the prayers? No? }

The prayers also we have given you, I think, which number verse? Prayers of the living entity. Some eleven verses are there. All the verses we have given you. I am sorry, the time is up, we will have to stop here.


Chapter 21

Prayers of the unborn child


The following is the third part of third day of Bhagavata Saptaha given by His Divine Holiness Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj recorded on 1st Oct 2001 in Sydney, Australia.

 

 



Om namo bhagavate vaasudevaaya

Om namo bhagavate vaasudevaaya

Om namo bhagavate vaasudevaaya

 

 Please hear them and if you can repeat please.



[Prayers of the unborn child: SB 3.31.12 to 21 – recited by mathaji’s and everyone repeated after them.]

 

jantur uvāca



tasyopasannam avituḿ jagad icchayātta-

nānā-tanor bhuvi calac-caraṇāravindam

so 'haḿ vrajāmi śaraṇaḿ hy akuto-bhayaḿ me

yenedṛśī gatir adarśy asato'nurūpā         

[The human soul says: I take shelter of the lotus feet of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who appears in His various eternal forms and walks on the surface of the world. I take shelter of Him only, because He can give me relief from all fear and from Him I have received this condition of life, which is just befitting my impious activities.](SB 3.31.12)

 

yas tv atra baddha iva karmabhir āvṛtātmā

bhūtendriyāśayamayīm avalambya māyām

āste viśuddham avikāram akhaṇḍa-bodham

ātapyamāna-hṛdaye 'vasitaḿ namāmi


[I, the pure soul, appearing now bound by my activities, am lying in the womb of my mother by the arrangement of maya. I offer my respectful obeisances unto Him who is also here with me but who is unaffected and changeless. He is unlimited, but He is perceived in the repentant heart. To Him I offer my respectful obeisances.](SB 3.31.13)
yaḥ pañca-bhūta-racite rahitaḥ śarīre

cchanno 'yathendriya-guṇārtha-cid-ātmako 'ham

tenāvikuṇṭha-mahimānam ṛṣiḿ tam enaḿ

vande paraḿ prakṛti-pūruṣayoḥ pumāḿsam

[I am separated from the Supreme Lord because of my being in this material body, which is made of five elements, and therefore my qualities and senses are being misused, although I am essentially spiritual. Because the Supreme Personality of Godhead is transcendental to material nature and the living entities, because He is devoid of such a material body, and because He is always glorious in His spiritual qualities, I offer my obeisances unto Him.](SB 3.31.14)

 
yan-māyayoru-guṇa-karma-nibandhane 'smin



sāḿsārike pathi caraḿs tad-abhiśrameṇa

naṣṭa-smṛtiḥ punar ayaḿ pravṛṇīta lokaḿ

yuktyā kayā mahad-anugraham antareṇa

[The human soul further prays: The living entity is put under the influence of material nature and continues a hard struggle for existence on the path of repeated birth and death. This conditional life is due to his forgetfulness of his relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Therefore, without the Lord's mercy, how can he again engage in the transcendental loving service of the Lord?](SB 3.31.15)

jñānaḿ yad etad adadhāt katamaḥ sa devas

trai-kālikaḿ sthira-careṣv anuvartitāḿśaḥ

taḿ jīva-karma-padavīm anuvartamānās

tāpa-trayopaśamanāya vayaḿ bhajema

[No one other than the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as the localized Paramatma, the partial representation of the Lord, is directing all inanimate and animate objects. He is present in the three phases of time -- past, present and future. Therefore, the conditioned soul is engaged in different activities by His direction, and in order to get free from the threefold miseries of this conditional life, we have to surrender unto Him only.](SB 3.31.16)
dehy anya-deha-vivare jaṭharāgnināsṛg-

viṇ-mūtra-kūpa-patito bhṛśa-tapta-dehaḥ

icchann ito vivasituḿ gaṇayan sva-māsān

nirvāsyate kṛpaṇa-dhīr bhagavan kadā nu

[Fallen into a pool of blood, stool and urine within the abdomen of his mother, his own body scorched by the mother's gastric fire, the embodied soul, anxious to get out, counts his months and prays, "O my Lord, when shall I, a wretched soul, be released from this confinement?"](SB 3.31.17)
yenedṛśīḿ gatim asau daśa-māsya īśa

sańgrāhitaḥ puru-dayena bhavādṛśena

svenaiva tuṣyatu kṛtena sa dīna-nāthaḥ

ko nāma tat-prati vināñjalim asya kuryāt

[My dear Lord, by Your causeless mercy I am awakened to consciousness, although I am only ten months old. For this causeless mercy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the friend of all fallen souls, there is no way to express my gratitude but to pray with folded hands.](SB 3.31.18)

paśyaty ayaḿ dhiṣaṇayā nanu sapta-vadhriḥ

śārīrake dama-śarīry aparaḥ sva-dehe

yat-sṛṣṭayāsaḿ tam ahaḿ puruṣaḿ purāṇaḿ

paśye bahir hṛdi ca caityam iva pratītam

[The living entity in another type of body sees only by instinct; he knows only the agreeable and disagreeable sense perceptions of that particular body. But I have a body in which I can control my senses and can understand my destination; therefore, I offer my respectful obeisances to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, by whom I have been blessed with this body and by whose grace I can see Him within and without.](SB 3.31.19)
so 'haḿ vasann api vibho bahu-duḥkha-vāsaḿ

garbhān na nirjigamiṣe bahir andha-kūpe

yatropayātam upasarpati deva-māyā

mithyā matir yad-anu saḿsṛti-cakram etat

[Therefore, my Lord, although I am living in a terrible condition, I do not wish to depart from my mother's abdomen to fall again into the blind well of materialistic life. Your external energy, called deva-maya, at once captures the newly born child, and immediately false identification, which is the beginning of the cycle of continual birth and death, begins.](SB 3.31.20)
tasmād ahaḿ vigata-viklava uddhariṣya

ātmānam āśu tamasaḥ suhṛdātmanaiva

bhūyo yathā vyasanam etad aneka-randhraḿ

mā me bhaviṣyad upasādita-viṣṇu-pādaḥ

[Therefore, without being agitated any more, I shall deliver myself from the darkness of nescience with the help of my friend, clear consciousness. Simply by keeping the lotus feet of Lord Visnu in my mind, I shall be saved from entering into the wombs of many mothers for repeated birth and death.](SB 3.31.21)

 

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa

Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare

Hare Rāma Hare Rāma

Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

 

Before we disperse I would like to draw your attention to the verse number 17. All the verses are important because, in the helpless condition the soul against his desires according to his karma and under the supervision of Kṛṣṇa, he is squeezed in the womb of the mother.



 

karmaṇā daiva-netrea [SB 3.31.1] – if you want the best life, hence forth let us try to make this life as the last material life. You should intensely desire about it. Again why should we put ourselves again into the same obnoxious condition? Gives us nice idea and we let Srila Prabhupāda to take the class now because nice purport is there. Please recite the verse with me.

[Maharaji leads recitation of SB 3.31.17 twice]


dehy anya-deha-vivare jaṭharāgnināsṛg-

viṇ-mūtra-kūpa-patito bhṛśa-tapta-dehaḥ

icchann ito vivasituḿ gaṇayan sva-māsān

nirvāsyate kṛpaṇa-dhīr bhagavan kadā nu

[Fallen into a pool of blood, stool and urine within the abdomen of his mother, his own body scorched by the mother's gastric fire, the embodied soul, anxious to get out, counts his months and prays, "O my Lord, when shall I, a wretched soul, be released from this confinement?"](SB 3.31.17)

 

Before we go to this verse I would like to complete the live symptoms of the society.
