Lord is Always Fully Satisfied



avismitaḿ taḿ paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ / svenaiva lābhena samaḿ praśāntam

vinopasarpaty aparaḿ hi bāliśaḥ / śva-lāńgulenātititarti sindhum
[Demigods said to Indra who was fighting with Vrtrasura: Free from all material conceptions of existence and never wonder-struck by anything, the Lord is always jubilant and fully satisfied by His own spiritual perfection. He has no material designations, and therefore He is steady and unattached. That Supreme Personality of Godhead is the only shelter of everyone. Anyone desiring to be protected by others is certainly a great fool who desires to cross the sea by holding the tail of a dog.](SB 6.9.22)
avismitaḿ, He is never surprised. We are always surprised. There was terrorist attack on America, and we were surprised. They retaliated, we were surprised. The war broke out, we are surprised. Sickness broke out, we are surprised. We are all limited living entities. We are always surprised. He is never surprised. Everything goes according to His own plan. And this idea doesn’t sink into our mind. We think that we are the controller. avismitaḿ taḿ parip
ūrṇa-kāmaḿ. paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ, he does’nt depend upon anybody. For His happiness, He does’nt depend on anybody. That he showed in His pastimes in Vrindavana. avismitaḿ taḿ paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is a beautiful literature. Please don’t leave it for a single second, atleast in Puruṣottama māsa, if not always. This jnana yagna should continue always in your life. We pray Kṛṣṇa that please, please give us this intellect.

How to behave with others?

Unnecessarily we are wasting our time in mental concoctions about other living entities. You please stop for good. Don’t concoct anything. The living entities have different natures.

tulsi ye jagat mein / bhaant-bhaant ke log

hil mil ke sab chaliye / nadi nau sanjog
Very nice Tulsi das says, that in this world there are different types of people. Don’t worry about them. No, never. Be very friendly to everybody. And just go on, hil mil kar chaliye, just you mix with them. Everybody has his own ways. We are all different in our mentalities. But one common thing we have, that we have to have the unflinching attitude, unflinching devotional service, to the Supreme Absolute Truth who is correctly known in the Vedic literature as Kṛṣṇa. There is no name for the Supreme Absolute Truth comparing Kṛṣṇa over all other so-called spiritual literatures.

Run after the completely satisfied


Please be sure about it. And we are fortunate enough to be heir apparent to Kṛṣṇa. avismitaḿ taḿ paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ, those who run after Him, they also become paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ and that is our quality, and because we are completely satisfied without depending upon anybody, our life becomes sublime. We don’t have any misery at all. No misery touches us. Why? Because we are running after paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ. And if you decide for good that you will always remember Him, you will always chant about Him, you will always talk about Him, You will always hear about Him, you will never take any other shelter other than Him, then you are running avismitaḿ taḿ paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ, svenaiva lābhena samaḿ praśāntam. svenaiva lābhena, by His own internal potency, He is always param, transcendental, and param shantam, completely peaceful. Because we don’t expect anything from anybody. We don’t depend upon anybody. So where lies the disturbance? Always the disturbance is because we expect from living entities something. Don’t expect. What are the living entities going to give? They themselves are suffering. So we should not expect anything from the living entity. And as soon as we learn this eternal lesson from the pages of Bhāgavatam, that we don’t expect anything, there is no misery. The miseries only touches to those souls, those who are expecting something. And we always knowing or knowingly we expect something. If you expect then you are bound to be morose, because you are not getting that and no living entity can supply you everything. Please don’t run after the living entities, instead of, just catch the source of everything. mattaḥ sarvaḿ pravartate. ahaḿ sarvasya prabhavo[BG 10.8], svenaiva lābhena. Because He does’nt depend upon anybody, that’s why He is known as Supreme. And because He is Supreme, as soon run after Him, you are completely satisfied.

How can you become completely satisfied without anything?

oṁ pūrṇam adaḥ pūrṇam idaṁ pūrṇāt pūrṇam udacyate

pūrṇasya pūrṇam ādāya pūrṇam evāvaśiṣyate
[The Personality of Godhead is perfect and complete, and because He is completely perfect, all emanations from Him, such as this phenomenal world, are perfectly equipped as complete wholes. Whatever is produced of the Complete Whole is also complete in itself. Because He is the Complete Whole, even though so many complete units emanate from Him, He remains the complete balance.](Iso Upanishad Invocation)
How clearly it is, in the invocation verse of Iso-Upanishad, He gives us the definition, what am I. Try to understand please. All these are stories just giving us just the definition of the Supreme Absolute Truth Kṛṣṇa. He says, this is pūra, complete, that is pūra complete. Complete is not the very correct translation of pūra. Pūra is the best word. That is completely perfect and perfectly complete. And out of these pūra, so many pūra units come out, and even then what is remaining is also pūra. This is the meaning of Pūra. Pūra never deteriorates. One plus one is equal to one in the spiritual world. And one minus one is also equal to one. The whole thing is there, and that is svenaiva lābhena samaḿ praśāntam. And as soon as we understand Kṛṣṇa in this way, that has got to affect your life and you become completely satisfied without anything.

This body is on lease, don’t break the lease conditions

What are you going to take from this world? Our body we are not going to take. This body also, He will snatch from us, because this also doesn’t belong to us. He says that I have given you flesh, bones, blood and what not. It all belongs to Me, and this is just I have given you on lease. And lease means you have to pay the rent, isn’t it? And you have to behave according to His conditions. You can’t just go into the property and try to build something here and try to... Eventually the owner will catch you, because you are on lease. So here also all these things are on lease. And He has given the direction, how to use our hands, how to use our brain, how to use our eyes, everything is directed by Him. And if you break the lease, you will have to attend the court. He will sue you. This is the meaning of lease. And ordinary material lease could be renewed, may be the rent will go high. But this lease is non-renewable. It just finishes. So till you have this, make best use of it, according to His instruction. And that is we are, following the, svenaiva labhena samam prasantam. As soon as you obey the leaseholder, the owner, then you are quite at ease in that property. As soon you break your promise then you are in difficulty, and that is what we are doing. Every step of our existence, we are completely, nonsensically breaking everything. Smashing really. And He gets angry then, and then He drags us to the court. And He hands it over to the illusory energy, and illusionary energy punishes us like anything. And then we scream and shout, “Where is Kṛṣṇa, where is Kṛṣṇa”. Arre man, you are reaping your own, whatever you have sown you are reaping. This is the … svenaiva labhena param prasantam …And to such Supreme authority, vinopasarpaty, you don’t surrender, vinopasarpaty aparaḿ hi bāliśaḥ[SB 6.9.22], you are bāliśaḥ, you are foolish.

Don’t catch dog’s tail

avismitaḿ taḿ paripūrṇa-kāmaḿ / svenaiva lābhena samaḿ praśāntam

vinopasarpaty aparaḿ hi bāliśaḥ / śva-lāńgulenātititarti sindhum
[Demigods said to Indra who was fighting with Vrtrasura: Free from all material conceptions of existence and never wonder-struck by anything, the Lord is always jubilant and fully satisfied by His own spiritual perfection. He has no material designations, and therefore He is steady and unattached. That Supreme Personality of Godhead is the only shelter of everyone. Anyone desiring to be protected by others is certainly a great fool who desires to cross the sea by holding the tail of a dog.](SB 6.9.22)

Bhāgavatam calls us living entities as the foolish. And because we are fools, what we do in this foolishness? śva-lāńgulenātititarti sindhum. We want to cross the ocean may be. This is Pacific ocean? We can swim from here to Fiji, isn’t it, it is not very far. How long Fiji two hours by plane? Two three hours… you can swim! So you go to the sea coast and there are dogs swimming, the dog goes ten feet and comes back ten feet, so we think “Oh, this is nice to go to Fiji, let us not spend money.” So you hold the tail of the dog and go to Fiji. And what happens, you get drowned and the dog also gets drowned. This is how, anybody’s tail you catch, apart from Kṛṣṇa, then you are just, that is catching the dog’s tail. How can you cross the ocean by catching the dog’s tail? There are plenty of dogs around. Please don’t touch the dogs. Catch the tail who can cross over. Then you have to go through the customs, you have to have the valid passport, you have to have the ticket, air ticket or streamer ticket, whatever it is. There is a process to cross over the ocean. You can’t just go [and catch] dog’s tail … “Come on go…bushy tail. Come on go…this tail …I go… that tail … I go.” And you drown, those gurus so called gurus, they also get drowned and they drag their followers also to the ditch. Please save your self from this. And this is the instruction of the pages of Bhāgavatam. And in this also, then because we are victimized by the three modes of material nature, so we insult each other, here and there, again and again totally lower modes.
