(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 March 2013, Cape Town, South Africa, Srimad Bhagavatam 8.12.7) Why are the gopis classified as the top most devotees? Because they gave up everything. These gopis, they … more
So due to our ignorance we are now being slaughtered in the dentist chair voluntarily – we go there on our own and let them mutilate our body! – because we have sunk into deep dark ignorance and we don’t even know which herb can actually cure the tooth –and there we go with all our progress in knowledge.
So this whole path of trying to scientifically develop more and more knowledge, will not bring us any progress.
We get a little knowledge and we lose a little knowledge. Therefore we stay with Prabhupada’s mathematics:
5 + 5 is 10,
2 +2 is 4
and everything plus Krishna is Vrndavavan
