Listen and learn everything

Then you can sing Kunti Prayers 4, 5 verses [SB 1.8.18 to 1.8.22].

kunty uvāca

namasye puruṣaḿ tvādyam īśvaraḿ prakṛteḥ param

alakṣyaḿ sarva-bhūtānām antar bahir avasthitam

[Srimati Kunti said:  O Kṛṣṇa, I offer my obeisances unto You because You are the original personality and are unaffected by the qualities of the material world.  You are existing both within and without everything, yet You are invisible to all.](S.B 1.8.18)

māyā-javanikācchannam ajñādhokṣajam avyayam

na lakṣyase mūḍha-dṛśā naṭo nāṭyadharo yathā
[Being beyond the range of limited sense perception, You are the eternally irreproachable factor covered by the curtain of deluding energy.  You are invisible to the foolish observer, exactly as an actor dressed as a player is not recognized.](S.B 1.8.19)
tathā paramahaḿsānāḿ munīnām amalātmanām

bhakti-yoga-vidhānārthaḿ kathaḿ paśyema hi striyaḥ
[You Yourself descend to propagate the transcendental science of devotional service unto the hearts of the advanced transcendentalists and mental speculators, who are purified by being able to discriminate between matter and spirit.  How, then, can we women know You perfectly?](S.B 1.8.20)
kṛṣṇāya vāsudevāya devakī-nandanāya ca

nanda-gopa-kumārāya govindāya namo namaḥ
[Let me therefore offer my respectful obeisances unto the Lord, who has become the son of Vasudeva, the pleasure of Devaki, the boy of Nanda and the other cowherd men of Vrndaavana, and the enlivener of the cows and the senses.](S.B. 1.8.21)

namaḥ pańkaja-nābhāya namaḥ pańkaja-māline

namaḥ pańkaja-netrāya namas te pańkajāńghraye
[My respectful obeisances are unto You, O Lord, whose abdomen is marked with a depression like a lotus flower, who are always decorated with garlands of lotus flowers, whose glance is as cool as the lotus and whose feet are engraved with lotuses.] (S.B. 1.8.22)

In Kunti prayers, there is again one nice verse from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.  Srimad Bhāgavata maha puran ki jai!

 

śṛṇvanti gāyanti gṛṇanty abhīkṣṇaśaḥ smaranti nandanti tavehitaḿ janāḥ



ta eva paśyanty acireṇa tāvakaḿ bhava-pravāhoparamaḿ padāmbujam
[O Krsna, those who continuously hear, chant and repeat Your transcendental activities, or take pleasure in others' doing so, certainly see Your lotus feet, which alone can stop the repetition of birth and death.] (SB 1.8.36)
Fortunately our all languages are very near to Sanskrit and whenever the verse comes in front of us half of the verse we may know already.  śṛṇvanti gāyanti gṛṇanty abhīkṣṇaśaḥabhīkṣṇaśaḥ word, we don’t know, we know śṛṇvanti – [Hindi] suniye, sunte rahiye, aur sune se hi hum sab seek jate hai. [listen, keep listening, and by keep listening we learn everything].  We learn so many things by hearing.  Before we got to kindergarten or school or whatever we learn so many things from our mother.  Mother teaches half of the education, which we have.  After mother stops teaching we always learn nonsense.  Mother is the real teacher. And that’s why in the pages of Bhāgavatam it is clearly said

 

gurur na sa syāt sva-jano na sa syāt pitā na sa syāj jananī na sā syāt


daivaḿ na tat syān na patiś ca sa syān na mocayed yaḥ samupeta-mṛtyum
[Lord Rsabhadeva said to his sons: One who cannot deliver his dependents from the path of repeated birth and death should never become a spiritual master, a father, a husband, a mother or a worshipable demigod.](SB 5.5.18)


Two types of knowledge of Vedic mother

Mother always teaches us how to get rid of this janma mrtyu jara vyadi. Vedic mothers are trained in this direction.  They only have two [types of] knowledge at their disposal.  One is they are expert in cooking. It’s not that for a week or one week we cook and then stuff it into our refrigerator and then eat junk every day.  No! That is not Vedic mother. She immediately cooks very nice, never sits with husband, serves him. If you are not attached to your man, one man, then you will have to obey hundreds of persons. That is the constitution Kṛṣṇa [has] given.  Always the mothers must be protected.  It is better to be, good or bad, have one man with her and cooking must be very immaculate. Somehow or other the times are very precarious, we don’t know really, may be wife is working husband is not working so somebody has to cook.  So equally the men also must learn cooking and the women also, but by their own constitution they are expert in cooking because the service is the main quality of mataji’s.  They serve without any discrimination. Always there is some service they will do that.  So, this is, as soon as they learn cooking then whoever their dependents are they are very happy.  Their health is quite alright and nothing goes wrong generally. 

 

Then second thing they learn is the Vedic traditions.  They always remember when ekadasi is there and how to make delicious dishes on ekadasi also. So that you will be tempted to carry on further with ekadasi. Srila Prabhupāda is used to call ekadasi feast.  He was not able to starve; he said there is no need of that.  We may have ekadasi feast.  So mothers are very expert and they cook very nicely. Our mataji from Singapore, Devaki’s mother-in-law she cooks rasagulla so nice, that for rasagulla we always visit Singapore [laughs mildly]. Very nice cooking and side by side the Vedic traditions are there.  Prabhupāda said now it is other way. The daughters will become Kṛṣṇa consciousness first and then mother will [Maharaj laughs].  So please this should not be the case.



 

It is very easy to have purified consciousness

It is very easy to have this purified consciousness.  Extra purified consciousness is correctly known as Kṛṣṇa consciousness. And as soon as we accept grinanti, srnvanti, gayanti, as soon as you hear you are going to sing or you are going to talk.  Even talking about Kṛṣṇa is also singing. In Vaikunta nobody talks they sing. Nobody walks they dance because they are always in bliss.  There is no anxiety, mental anguish is completely absent and that is the main gift of Kṛṣṇa consciousness.  It is very easy as soon as you pronounce maha mantra I don’t know somehow or the other subtly your anguish vanishes till that time atleast.  So please it’s your duty to accept the authority of Kṛṣṇa in this age it is very difficult for us, for young people particularly, our young one’s are lost completely.  They don’t have any idea of this root culture. This root culture has got to put into the practice and as soon as you follow this culture the same way, at the same moment, you will become very simple and as soon as the simplicity and the culture goes hand in hand, then no way you are going to suffer.  Even sufferings will also become very easy.  We can just carry on.  Those who are always with Kṛṣṇa, remembering Kṛṣṇa, seeing Kṛṣṇa, visiting some places where Kṛṣṇa pastimes are told or making their own houses Kṛṣṇa consciousness then their ocean of misery becomes like of hoof print. You know calf, cow has hoof and during the rainy season cow walks in the mud so there are hoof prints there and sometimes water fills in the hoof print.  So this ocean becomes like a hoof print full of water and then just cross over.   It is so easy. And this is nothing to be doubted every syllable in the sentence is very correct. I’ll tell you one the secret of [what] the misery is. That there is no factual existence for our misery. 

[Hindi] Ye hakikat nahi hai.  Hamare jo dukh hain o humare mann se sochke nikale hain, ye hakikat nahi hai.

[This misery is not factual. This is our mental concoction. It is not factual.] 

There is no factual existence of the misery and with Kṛṣṇa consciousness the whole house will become very lively just because they accept Kṛṣṇa. 

Today we got a nice phone call from Brisbane our Murali Manohar son’s, grandson’s and they are all speaking. How nice? Congratulations Murali.  You have converted the whole house into Vaikunta really.  They are all 3 sons, 3 daughter-in-laws they all spoke and that 5 year old boy Prahlada and the young one Vrajasundar, what is his name Sundar, he also pa pa pa doing.  He knows that dada does pa pa so he also does. [laughs] So, please it is so easy and then so easy to control under roof 6+2=8 plus Murali Manohar and his wife and mother (9,10,11), how many 11, 12 people under the same roof.  It is impossible; it is not possible at all without Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Please somehow or the other as soon as you come to Kṛṣṇa, this, all these things which look in this age as impossibility they become very easily possible and everybody is happy.
