Love, Lust, and Rust

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Bengali evening class in Sri Puri Dham
11 July 2018, part 2

 

When you drink sugar cane juice, you throw the pulp away, and if some madman can come and suck that dry pulp—will he get any sweetness from that? We are also like this. Time after time we get birth, time after time we live a material life—some time you may leave the material life and come to the temple, but then you get another birth again and you again become bound by material life.

Listen to what I am saying. We only keep on repeating the message of Chaitanyadev.

So, today we first went to Jagananda Pandit's place, he is the author of Prema-vivarta. Actually, what is called prema (love)? He teaches this in this book.

The love between a man and a women that is commonly known in our days is not love, it is lust. Lust is darkness. Two people fall in love, get married and what happens after that is what they call love, but if that is love, then how can the husband kill his wife? Is this love, tell me? If you read the newspapers, you can see that this happens every day...

There is a saying in Bengali that literally says "even if you wash coal a hundred times, the dirt will not come off" [কয়লা শত ধুইলেও ময়লা যায় না; black will take no other hue]. If you associate with a good person, you will become good, and if you associate with a bad person, you will also become bad. We all know that magnet always attracts iron, but if the iron is covered with rust, then it will not attract it any more. Because of our ignorance, we have become rusty and Krishna does not attract us.

Love Your Service
'Those of you who have some service, do not leave it! You get service by fortune, remember it—your mercy, your connection with mercy is there. Your mind always disturbs you, but you must not leave your service.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'To the Supreme Lord, whose form is the embodiment of eternal existence, knowledge, and bliss, whose shark-shaped earrings are swinging to and fro, who is beautifully shining in the divine realm of Gokula, who [due to the offence of breaking the pot of yogurt that his mother was churning into butter and then stealing the butter that was kept hanging from a swing] is quickly running from the wooden grinding mortar in fear of Mother Yasoda, but who has been caught from behind by her who ran after Him with greater speed—to that Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, I offer my humble obeisances.'

What are you afraid of? Sometimes Gurudev may chastise us, but it is for our benefit
because we do not know what is good and what is bad for us.
