This process of bhakti is not a process of tapsya, ..a little tapsaya in the beginning but there is so much bliss as one is advancing in Krishna consciousness. So much taste and therefore it is the process which is joyfully performed. That is the reason why bhakti is far superior than the teachings of mayavada…..
Therefore our mission is to drive out the influence of nirvesesa and sunyavada in this world and to establish the supremacy of Krishna bhakti everywhere. This must be done very forceful, very strongly, we can not be soft in this matter.
Yesterday I was reading on the plane, it was a long flight so I did a lot of reading:
There was a description where Prabhupada was asked:
“What about RamaKrishna?”
Prabhupada said: ‘He is a rascal” …
Prabhupada was not at all careful about it, he was adamant.
Prabhupada spoke very strong, he said that:
“He engaged in so much sexual activity, that he became impotent”
Prabhupada had no good words for him at all. And for Vivekenanda Prabhupada also said: “a woman monger”
He said it so strongly.
One might say how can he speak so strong but it is a fact that this is the situation in this age of kali.
Those who won’t take to the process of bhakti, they can not maintain – they can not maintain because there is no satisfaction in any other path, no lasting satisfaction – Therefore there is the greatest risk that one will fall prey to the material energy, but if one fully absorbed in serving Krishna, then one will only want more and more service to Krishna and this is the perfection of life.
