Thrill At Every Moment Part 3 - Krishna Temple Talk

  1. 1. Life: A Thrill at Every Moment
  2. 2. Based on the teachings of International Society for Krishna Consciousness Founder Acharya: A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada His Divine Grace
  3. 3. <ul><li>Enjoy a Relationship with Him </li></ul><ul><li>Experience Meaningful Relationships with Others </li></ul><ul><li>Develop Maturity of Character </li></ul><ul><li>Express Ourselves thru Abilities </li></ul><ul><li>Fulfill our Mission </li></ul>Five Purposes
  4. 4. <ul><li>Because he remains satisfied </li></ul><ul><li>in the loving service of the Lord, </li></ul><ul><li>he can remain steady, like the </li></ul><ul><li>ocean, and therefore enjoy full </li></ul><ul><li>peace. Others never attain peace. </li></ul><ul><li>The fruitive workers, the salvationists, and the yogis who are after mystic powers are all unhappy because of unfulfilled desires. </li></ul>4. Unearned Pleasure
  5. 5. His Divine Grace
  6. 6. <ul><li>&quot;My dear sons, there is no reason to labor very hard for sense pleasure while in this human form of life; such pleasures are available to the stool-eaters [hogs]. Rather, you should undergo penances by which your existence will be purified, and as a result you will be able to enjoy unlimited transcendental bliss. &quot; </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>By the result of the work in which one is engaged, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna, should be worshiped. If one thinks always in this way, in full Krishna consciousness, then, by the grace of the Lord, he becomes fully blissful. That is the perfection of life. The Lord says in Bhagavad-Gita (12.7), He takes charge of delivering such a devotee. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>“ It is a natural psychology in every individual that a person likes to hear and enjoy his personal glories enumerated by others. That is a natural instinct, and the Lord, being also an individual personality like others, is not an exception to this psychology because psychological characteristics are but reflections of the same psychology in the Absolute Lord. The only difference is that the Lord is the greatest personality of all. If, therefore, the Lord is attracted by the pure devotee's chanting of His glories, there is nothing astonishing.” SB 1/6/33 </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>“ Lord Sri Krishna, is the reservoir of innumerable enchanting pastimes, and </li></ul><ul><li>thus He is the source of innumerable varieties of pleasure. In fact, He is the ocean of eternal pleasure.” </li></ul><ul><li>SB 11/7/4 </li></ul>5. Unending Pleasure
  10. 11. <ul><li>na tv evaham jatu nasam </li></ul><ul><li>na tvam neme janadhipah </li></ul><ul><li>na caiva na bhavisyamah </li></ul><ul><li>sarve vayam atah param </li></ul><ul><li>“ Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.” Gita 2/12 </li></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>“ That supreme abode of Mine is not illumined by the sun or moon, nor by fire or electricity. Those who reach it never return to this material world.” </li></ul>Goloka Vrndavan
  12. 13. That is the transcendental lila, or pastime of the Lord. The basic principle for all transcendental exchanges between the Lord and His devotees is exhibited to enjoy a transcendental bliss for which there is no comparison. SB 1/10/32 The Lord plays the part of a subordinate in His transcendental sporting, and thus sometimes He puts Himself in the care of Yasoda.
  13. 14. <ul><li>This is the transcendental position of spiritual life. One who hears the Gita from the right source, directly from Krishna, attains full Krishna consciousness. The result of Krishna consciousness is that one becomes increasingly enlightened, and he enjoys life with a thrill, not only for some time, but at every moment . </li></ul>
  14. 15. <ul><li>“ O King, as I repeatedly recall this wondrous and holy dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna, I take pleasure, being thrilled at every moment” Gita 18/76 </li></ul>
