Everything Will Be Null and Void When There Is No God - 0838
07:14 minutes from a lecture on SB 01.15.21 in Los Angeles
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Tad abhūd asad īśa-riktam (SB 1.15.21). Everything will be null and void when there is no God. That's it. The modern civilization has got everything, but without God consciousness, that any..., any..., any moment it will be finished. There are symptoms. Any moment. At the present moment, this godless civilization, as soon as there is declaration of war, the America is prepared to drop atom bomb; Russia is... The first nation who will drop the atom bomb, he will be victorious. Nobody will be victorious, because both of them are ready to drop. The America will be finished and Russia will be finished. That is the position. So you may make advancement of civilization, scientific improvement, economic development, but if it is godless, at any moment it will be finished. At any moment."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Here, the human being, in ignorance they are serving the kāma, lust, greediness, moha, anger—so many things they are serving. They are serving. A man is killing another body by lust, lusty desires. Or by illusion. So many other reasons. So we are serving. There is no doubt about it. We are serving. But we are serving our kāma, krodha, lobha, moha, mātsarya—lust, desire, avarice, like that. Now we have to learn that we have been frustrated by serving so many things. Now we have to turn that service attitude to Kṛṣṇa. That is Kṛṣṇa's mission. Sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja (BG 18.66): "You are serving already. You cannot be free from service. But your service is misplaced. Therefore you just turn your service unto Me. Then you become happy." That is Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement."
731203 - Lecture SB 01.15.24 - Los Angeles


Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The injunction is, "Thou shall not kill," but he will kill and kill and kill and kill, and still, he wants to be satisfied. Just see. The Bible says, "Thou shall not kill," and they are simply engaged in killing business, and still they want to be happy. Just see the fun. Therefore Kṛṣṇa says, "Yes, you be killed by occasional world war. You must be killed. You have created this situation. You must be killed. You may be American or Englishman or German or this or that. You may be very proud of your nationality. But you must be killed." This is the position. Īśvarasya viceṣṭitam (SB 1.15.24). "You have killed so many animals. Now wholesale killing, one bomb, one atom bomb. Be killed."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Human civilization is meant for tapasya, tapasya. You should know what is my responsibility. Tapasā brahmacaryeṇa śamena ca damena ca (SB 6.1.13). One should learn how to practice tapasya. Tapasya. This is tapasya, little tapasya. No illicit sex, no gambling, no meat-eating and no intoxication, this is tapasya, little tapasya. Who is dying without meat-eating? We have got so many students. There are so many Vaiṣṇavas, they do not eat meat. Are they dying? This is only bad habit. But if you practice little... In the beginning it may be little troublesome. It is not troublesome. I am thinking... Just like one gentleman came, 'We cannot give up meat-eating. I want, but I cannot'. The practice. Abhyāsa-yoga-yuktena cetasā (BG 8.8). Anything you practice, habit is the second nature. So in association of the devotee, if you try to practice this tapasya... Tapasā brahmacaryeṇa, not to have sex life without any purpose, that is called brahmacārī."

Hṛdayānanda: They say that God should have created us so that we...
Prabhupāda: Why "should have created"? He has created already perfect. Because you are perfect, therefore you have got the independence to misuse. You are not a dead stone. That is perfection. Ye yathā māṁ prapadyante (BG 4.11). You can go anywhere, sarva-ga. You can go to the Vaikuṇṭha. Yānti deva-vratā devān (BG 9.25). You can go to the higher planets. You can go to the hell. When you go to the hell, it is your choice. God has given you all perfection. Pūrṇam idaṁ pūrṇam adaḥ pūrṇāt pūrṇam udacyate (Īśopaniṣad, Invocation). Everything is complete, perfect.

"Man means mind. We are on the chariot, and the mind is the driver and the senses are the horses. So we are being driven here and there by the char... This chariot is this body. The mind is the coachman, or the chariot driver, and the senses are the horses. So in this way we are being forced to wander in so many planets, in so many species of life. This is our material condition."

"Nowadays it is the days of vote. Any rascal, if he gets vote somehow or other, then he acquires the exalted post. That is also written in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, that in the Kali-yuga there will be no consideration who is fit to occupy the exalted post of presidentship or royal throne. Simply somehow or other, by hook and crook, he'll occupy the seat. Therefore people are suffering. It is not... Nowadays, in democratic days, the government by the people, government for the people. So if the government is by the people, yes, you select your representative. If you are a fool, then you will select another fool."

"If you can control your mind, then you can control your words. There are kāya, mana, vākya. Three things are... We have got this body, and we have got our mind, and we have got to talk. Talking is very important. You can talk nonsense all day and night, and you can talk about Kṛṣṇa and chant Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, the same thing, vibration. So if you talk nonsense, then you can go to hell. And if you talk about Kṛṣṇa and the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, chant, then you go back to home, back to Godhead. Just see how much this talking is important."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Kṛṣṇa says that 'Anyone who is completely dependent upon Me', yoga-kṣemaṁ vahāmy aham (BG 9.22), 'I personally bring whatever his necessity is'. That is the promise of Kṛṣṇa in the Bhagavad-gītā. So renounced order means no more dependence on father, mother, husband, or... No. Completely dependent on Kṛṣṇa. Ekānta. That is perfection. One who is fully convinced that 'Kṛṣṇa is with me...' Īśvaraḥ sarva-bhūtānāṁ hṛd-deśe 'rjuna tiṣṭhati (BG 18.61)—'I will not have to search out Kṛṣṇa anywhere. He is within me, within my heart'."

"Go-rakṣya, cow protection is very, very essential in human society because it gives the milk, the miracle food. You can prepare hundreds and thousands of preparation, all not only delicious, but brain-maintaining. You can get good brain. Therefore go-rakṣya, cow protection, is especially recommended, not that animal protection. If you want to eat meat, you can eat many other animals, there are. But don't eat the cows. This is Vedic civilization."
