You Cannot Become Happy in a Place Which is Meant for Miseries - 0779
05:39 minutes from a lecture on SB 06.01.19 in Denver
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Our attachment is so strong, that even it is duḥkhālayam... Just like some hogs, they are living in filthy place and eating stool. And if you say that 'I will take you somewhere else, a good place,' then they will not go there. This happened. It is stated in the Bhāgavata that once the king of heaven, he was cursed to become hog. And he was living amongst the hog society. And when Lord Brahmā came to call him back, that 'Mr. Such-and-such, for your bad behavior you became hog. Now come back to heaven,' so he refused, 'No, I have got so much responsibility. I cannot go'. You see? This is material... It is called māyā, illusion. Even you are in the most abominable condition of life, we will feel, 'Now we are very happy'. So that is our position. We do not want to leave this place."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Human civilization should be to raise the fourth-class man to the first-class man. That is human civilization. But there is no idea who is first-class man. Everyone is a drunkard, everyone is illicit sex hunter, and everyone is gambler and everyone is meat-eater. Where is first-class man? There is no first-class man. All fourth-class man. And they are being taught simply how to manufacture big, big skyscraper, and every year, new model of car. Is that civilization? That is not civilization. You may be advanced in technology. So technology means technician. Suppose a man knows how to work in electricity, so many things. Does it mean he is a learned man? No. Learned, first-class man, that is given in the Bhagavad-gītā: śamo damaḥ satyaṁ śucis titikṣā ārjavaṁ, jñānam vijñānam āstikyam brahma-karma svabhāva-jam (BG 18.42). These are the first class. There is nothing mentioned that 'electrician' or a 'motor mechanics' and a... (laughter) So you are misled. Therefore you are facing this crisis, that 'Crimes, and Why and What to Do'."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"In the spiritual world there is no necessity of maintaining the body. The body is spiritual. As we have got here in this material world, to maintain this body I require to eat, I require to sleep, I require to satisfy my sense and I require to defend—the four necessities. Āhāra-nidrā-bhaya-maithunaṁ ca. And the spiritual body means these four kinds of bodily demands nil, no more. That is spiritual life. That means no eating, no sleeping, no sex and no defense. That Gosvāmīs, six Gosvāmīs in Vṛndāvana, they practiced. Nidrāhāra-vihārakādi-vijitau. They conquered over sleeping, eating, mating and defending. Nidrā means sleeping, āhāra means eating, vihāra means sex. Nidrāhāra-vihārakādi-vijitau. Conquered. So this is the advancement of spiritual life. When we conquer over these things, that means we have come to the spiritual platform."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
Prabhupāda: You can serve Kṛṣṇa in any capacity—provided you want to serve. And if you want to engage Kṛṣṇa for your service, that is blunder. Then it is blunder. You cannot engage Kṛṣṇa to your service. The everyone is trying to engage Kṛṣṇa for his service. They are going to the church, "O Kṛṣṇa, give us our daily bread," that "You serve me. You give us our daily bread and serve me." And our proposition is, Yaśodāmayī, "Kṛṣṇa, You are playing all day. Come on! Take food first of all." This is service. They are going to Kṛṣṇa for asking daily bread. And here Yaśodāmayī is commanding, "Come here! If You don't eat, You will get lean and thin. Come on." This is Vaiṣṇava philosophy.

Devotee: Jaya. Jaya, Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa.

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The living entity, the spirit soul, is by nature happy. There is no question of disappointment. You see Kṛṣṇa's picture anywhere, how they are happy. The gopīs are happy, the cowherd boys are happy, Kṛṣṇa is happy. Simply happiness. Where is disappointment? So you come to that platform. Then you will be also happy. You come to Kṛṣṇa. Dance with Kṛṣṇa. Eat with Kṛṣṇa. And that is information we are giving. Where is the question of disappointment? Come with Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa therefore comes personally to show how He is happy in Vṛndāvana, and He's inviting, 'Come to Me'. Sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja (BG 18.66): 'You just come to Me. I shall give you all pleasure'. But we are not going. So that is not Kṛṣṇa's fault or Kṛṣṇa's servant's fault. One who will not come to that platform, that is his fault. We are canvassing everywhere that 'Come to Kṛṣṇa consciousness and be happy'."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"God orders nature that 'This living entity wants something like this. You give him a machine'. So the prakṛti, or the nature, gives us different types of machine. Prakṛteḥ kriyamāṇāni guṇaiḥ karmāṇi sarvaśaḥ (BG 3.27). I am neither driving the machine, neither I have made the machine. I have been given as gift to work on, or to fulfill my desire. This is the position. So śāstra says that 'You have got now a very good machine'. Nṛ-deham. The human form of body is very good machine. Nṛ-deham ādyaṁ sulabhaṁ sukalpam. It is very rare. With great difficulty you have got this machine, because we have to come through so many machines—the aquatics, the plants, the insects, the trees, and the serpents, reptiles, then birds, then beast—millions and millions of years. Just like you have seen this, the trees are standing there, maybe standing for five thousand years. So if you get that machine, you cannot move, you have to stand in one place. So we had to go through this. Foolish people, they do not know. Therefore this machine is sulabham. Sulabham means very fortunately we have got this machine."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Īśvaraḥ sarva-bhūtānāṁ hṛd-deśe arjuna tiṣṭhati (BG 18.61): 'My dear Arjuna, the Lord is situated in everyone's heart'. Why He is situated there? Because He is the suhṛdaṁ sarva-bhūtānām (BG 5.29). We are sons of God. He is very sorry that unnecessarily we are wandering within this universe and suffering in different types of bodies, and this is going on. So īśvara, He is very well-wisher, friend. He is simply trying to turn His face towards you. That's it. Īśvaraḥ sarva-bhūtānām (BG 18.61). He has given little freedom, so do whatever you like. But He is simply taking the chance, 'When this rascal will turn towards Me?' That is His business. That is stated in the Vedic śāstra, that two birds are sitting in the same tree. One is eating the fruit, and the other is simple witnessing. So the eating bird is the jīvātmā, individual soul, and the witness bird is God, Paramātmā."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"If I do not know what is the destination and try to drive my car in full speed, then what will be the result? The result will be disaster. We must know why we are running. Running means... Just like the river is running in great tide, flowing, but the destination is the sea. When the river comes to the sea, then its destination gone. So similarly, we must know what is the destination. The destination is Viṣṇu, God. We are part and parcel of God. We are... Somehow or other, we are fallen in this material world. Therefore our destination of life will be to go back to home, back to Godhead. That is our destination. There is no other destination. So our Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is teaching that 'You fix up your goal of life'. And what is that goal of life? 'Back to home, back to Godhead. You are going this side, opposite side, toward the side of hell. That is not your destination. You go this side, back to Godhead'. That is our propaganda."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So the spirit soul, individual soul, is part and parcel of Kṛṣṇa. Therefore it is his duty to remain with the whole. Just like a mechanical part, a screw in a typewriter machine: If the screw remains with the machine, then it has got value. And if the screw remains without the machine, it has no value. Who cares for a small screw? But when that screw is wanting in a machine, you go to purchase—they'll charge five dollars. Why? When it is fixed up with the machine, it has got value. There are so many example. Just like sparks of the fire. When the fire is burning, you will find small particle of spark, 'fut! fut!' with this, It is very beautiful. It is very beautiful because it is with the fire. And as soon as the spark falls down out of the fire, then it has no value. Nobody cares for that. It is finished. Similarly, so long we are with Kṛṣṇa, being part and parcel of Kṛṣṇa, we have got value. And as soon as we are out of Kṛṣṇa touch, then we have no value. We should understand that."
