(Kadamba Kanana Swami Govinda Valley, Australia, 2011) Lecture – S.B.3.25.27
I was at the temple in France, where they had a TV with a video player but no antennae. I happened to be there for the world cup final in soccer, and it was the year that France was playing against Brazil. Can you imagine that was big – Brazil is huge and France were at home playing with Brazil! There were big TV screens all over the city and on big squares. Certain devotees would put on their jeans and sort of went for a japa walk a few hours before the match….okay, but some might have had tickets etc etc. But then they would have tried hard to have stayed at the temple for it:
“It’s maya! It’s just maya! I’m not going to fall for it!”
But then as the match was approaching, some devotees tried to get the TV going with the coat hangers and they couldn’t get it going. But anyway, then they were at the match and suddenly at one point the city of Paris roared:
Heavy news, one zero for France!………………………………So there it is, just get rid of your antennae. To start off just rip it out – done!
