Now, if we want to be happy eternally, we have to repeat in Kali yuga. It is the age of wrangling. There are 4 yugas. One is Krita yuga, Satya yuga and 2nd is Treta yuga, 3rd is Dvapara yuga and 4th is Kali yuga. This is Kali yuga. Here, people are not pure. Their minds are not clear. They are suffering physically, mentally and........ financially they are suffering. And without suffering, if we want every men rid here wherefrom we think not come back to this world of suffering. It is called the heavens, Vaikuntha. In Bhagavad Gita taught by Sri Krishna to Arjuna.
"Arjuna this world is full of suffering and one who surrenders to me, he will be free from suffering."
If you understand:
daivi hy esa guna-mayiThis world is full of suffering due to the deluding potency maya.
mama maya duratyaya
mam eva ye prapadyante
mayam etam taranti te
"It is my potency"
and that potency deprives all ours due to fight with that nectarian thought. To cultivate nectarian thought, it is the price of it. So we are mourning, we take birth, we die, take birth
punar api janmaAgain and again we take birth. Again and again we die. So again and again we enter into the womb of mother. And so we are not happy. As long as we are unhappy we never try to give up how to achieve happiness. It is told: if we surrender to the Supreme Lord Krishna, he is the Supreme Lord, and we surrender to him, then he will save us from suffering. He will save us. And how to surrender? Surrender is easy.
punar api maranam
"Oh Lord. You are the master of the universe. You are the creator of this universe. You are the protector of this universe. You are the savior of the universe."
Not only human beings. Even the birds, even the beasts, even the insects. Those who are under water. Those who are in the air, ether, and those who are on life from this earth or this air. All of them. None in this world of suffering, none can say that I am happy warrior, I am, don't suffer. Any of you? Can you declare that I am happy? Any of you? Is there anybody in this world who is a happy warrior? Who can say that I am happy warrior? Wars were, will return. Who is the happy warrior? Who is he? Who is that happy warrior? One who can enjoy the happiness, he should be a devotee. He should be a surrendered soul. Because if we surrender, definitely Krishna will protect us. In Gita the Lord says:
sarva dharman parityajyaGive up all your readiness and directly come to me, surrender to me. And you will be free from all the sins you have committed. Why we are suffering? Because we have done such deeds in our past lives. The results of those deeds we now suffer in this life. It is called prarabdha karma. And here in this life these are our debt. We will follow the dictations of our past life, the results of past life. Now if we want to destroy our prarabdha, we cannot destroy. We have to suffer. Even the great sage, even the great yogi, even the great, the charity or donators, donators, they are also suffering. But if one
mam ekam saranam vraja
(verse 11:28) ...... prithivite api abhai...... prarabdha karmeti virodhe ...A person who surrenders to the Lord, the Divine name, and repeats that name often and often, then he can able to conquer the prarabdha. He should not undergo prarabdha. There will be no prarabdha for him. Because he has surrendered. The moment he surrenders and repeats the namam then he will be free from suffering. Suffering eternally. Not for the present only. Eternally he will be free from the suffering. And he will go to a place wherefrom he need not come back.
yad gatva na nivartanteIf you reach that stage once, it is not forgone. We have, we are ..... We are falling down on this earth. This earth is transitory. It is moving. It is moving. Everything is moving. Culture is moving. Seasons moving. Day and night are moving. And suffering and enjoyment moving. Everything. The dignitary, this is a building, and the nations and their governments and their countries. The are moving, they are shaking. The definition of the world is:
tad dhama paramam mama
(verse ? 13:30)........vasotithi jagatIt is moving. You are all moving. Relatively you say I am sitting. But actually you are moving. You are sitting on there, earth is moving around the sun. Both moving, not sitting. Jagat's moving. And you sit in airplane, it is(break of tape)
So many qualifications. We can meet a man worldly great. But he cannot understand: one who surrenders to me, devotee, then the Lord who has the supreme power. That supreme power will deliver this power to the devotees. And if the devotees surrender then we can able to understand about the truth, absolute truth.
yasmin vijnate sarvam evam vijnatam bhavatiNow if we know that, if we know that absolute truth we can know the whole sight, the whole sight regarding this world or other worlds, and he begets Brahma being in this, we call, in this world. So that, if we want to know that, we then we have to repeat the Divine name often and often. Divine name will purify you. We have got number of things. Our heart is not pure. We are following our past dictations, the past karma. The result of our past karma now we are following. Though we know the truth, but our past karma. If we'd ...(?) that, then we can move it. If we reject that then we cannot follow. So, he knows that truth, yet he depends upon the blessings of the God. If the God blesses you then you can have the faith. The Lord must bless you. That faith, the strong faith, that strong faith can be achieved only through the unconditional surrender to the Lord and the causeless mercy of the Lord. If the Lord wants to take me, I have no such qualifications that I can achieve, only the Lord must bless me and give me sufficient faith. The required faith also you must give me. He must be ...(?). Then only I can practice, I can repeat the namam. Without his blessings I can not. Then you may ask:
"What is the qualifications to have God?"
Then I must say the truth. I have no qualifications. I am quality less. I have no qualifications. But:
(verse 17:15) aho hi guna ...suka kori...abhicarIf you take me. I have no qualities. Which is, which quality can make me approach you? No quality. I do not know that: everything. I am ignorant. I am ignorant. Now I am helpless. As the mother looks after the helpless child. The child's cannot get it. The child cannot clean his body. And he cannot do any service to this body, though it has got limbs, it has got hands. Then if he ...(?) it cannot ...(?). He pass urine, he cannot clean the cloth. He pass dung he cannot do it. Others must help. The mother must help. The mother serves the child because child has no other. Helpless. It is helpless. Nobody will help it if we cannot rid (?) him and go to the superior authority and appeal.
