(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Mayapur, November 2011) Lecture - Caitanya-caritamrta part 8 In the Adi Lila, it is said that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared under the astrological sign of Leo – the … more
Little by little let’s push it out of life and establish more and more the glorification of Krishna in every possible way – for example in the form of worshipping the Deity.
Just see in the temple how much effort is put into Deity worship – there’s so much running around for the Deities where ever you look you always see people running around:
Bowls, and trays and you see people cleaning, a special cleaning team, hosing down the whole thing right!..pro’s they are, proffessionals in looking after after the Deities – In the end it shows right?
It shows a high fine standard of Deity worship.
Where else outside of India do you get three pujari’s but here it is still going on – it has survived.
So that is the spirit, the spirit is to make it better, make it nicer then we will see a Golden Age and more it will manifest.
The world is going to go on, we see those who are into degradation, they are going full steam ahead, you have to be determined, you have to take charge, we have to push this mission, we can not just sit here and start knitting – we need the spirit, we need to start doing something to focus the conciousness.
Knitting isn’t the top priority ,the top priority is giving people Krishna Conciousness, if we want this Golden Age to come, if we want this Kali to go down we are not just sitting here waiting, getting ourselves in the temple to make the wall a little higher and put some security guards to keep them out. Keep chanting:
“ Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare”.
I came from South Africa, well Australia is kind of a safe place compared to South Africa where the walls are a lot higher and there are electric fences on them – I wouldn’t touch one cause I know I wouldn’t survive it and people live in security complexes, big walls guards on the gates with high electric fences, then in the security complexes every house also has a wall with electric fences on it and there is a sign on the wall saying ” armed response” there are constant security patrol cars riding around, if you have money you can link up your house with an electronic control system – “armed response” – so how can people live like this?.. In this age of Kali Yuga you can expect sooner or later that we are going to dig ourselves in more and more.
So this isn’t what devotees are supposed to do – devotees are meant to go out.
