Krsna is creator, maintainer and destroyer of everything. He is the Absolute Truth. He is the goal of life. We should take shelter of Him through devotional service. All kinds of knowledge, all kinds of austerities we may perform; the conclusion is that if we do not take shelter of Krsna, (then) it is all simply a waste of time. Just like a devotee; a devotee may work very hard to make money and with that money he decides that they are going to cook a wonderful feast and work for days to prepare the preparation but then he never offers it to Krsna, he does everything but does not bring it to the alter and never offers it, (then) it is a waste of time. Once you offer it to Krsna then everything else you have done, the process, is glorious; it is devotional service. Materialistic people, they are performing so many activities which are simply ugra karma, just foaming in the mouth, working so hard, waste of time. Sometimes devotees do the same activities but in the end they offer it to Krsna and therefore everything are auspicious from the beginning to the end because the conclusion is right. So the final conclusion of understanding everything about this material existence, God and the living entity is to take shelter of Krsna whole heartedly.

Illusion

There is one Supreme Eternal Being, Krsna, and there are innumerable living beings, the jivas. The jivas are always eternally dependent on the mercy of Krsna, it is our constitutional position. And knowledge means to always remember that and act with that understanding. And the source of all ignorance is to forget that principle and act according to that forgetfulness. So the liberated soul is the person who never forgets that I am the humble dependent servant of Krsna. And the conditioned soul forgets, thinks I am the doer, I am the controller, I am the enjoyer, by my strength, by my intelligence, by my wealth and influence, I will find the real solution to my sufferings – impossible ! This is illusion!!.

die before you die

Die before you die..

For a devotee, death is not the end, for a devotee, death is the beginning, death is begging of entrance into a realm of eternity, knowledge and bliss. But for a materialist, death is simply the end of everything that we identify with, the end of our entire existence. So therefore a devotee doesn’t mind getting old. Because he knows he is utilizing this body, this mind and this intelligence in Krishna consciousness. As the body gets older the soul is getting closer and closer to that eternal spiritual youthful form, therefore it is said, die before you die. If we do that before we die we can attain eternal life. Devotees do not fear death. A sincere devotee only fears forgetting Krishna, forgetting Krishna means spiritual death.
