The spiritual strength

Why does Kṛṣṇa say, “the ripened fruit of bhakti yoga is transcendental knowledge”? Real transcendental knowledge is not just theoretical knowledge or academic knowledge. It’s applied, realized spiritual knowledge, knowledge which we believe in, which gives us fearlessness, which gives us spiritual strength.

The transcendental Science*

*

When we mentioned earlier was that transcendental science is beyond the range of human experience that transcendental science is revealed to us from the Vedas so any spiritual movement should be according to the Vedas , according to the vedic literatures it should actually lead us to the absolute trurh so any given time we may find it is better than what i have now so we go to that but we still not satisfied we find that there is some deffciency we find that better Idea we go vedic philosophy is based upon our progress until you reach the absolute truth.

Even with so many obstacles, how do I preach with determination?

Spirtual Revelations

Question: Even with so many obstacles, how do I preach with determination?

HH Jayapataka Swami: Even if one has many obstacles, how can one still preach? You see, obstacles, we expect in the material world. And if there are no obstacles, then we will have less service. So even if there are obstacles, we still try to give Krsna. And there may be obstacles that, when the going gets tough, the tough get going! So if one is shaky, then naturally if there is some obstacle, they lose their determination. But if one is TOUGH, obstacles, so what! Lord Nityananda was beaten by Madhai, blood was pouring from His forehead. Because you caused Me to bleed, does that mean I won’t give you love of Godhead? So if there are obstacles or no obstacles, we still are determined to give out Krsna. And if there were no obstacles, then Krsna wouldn’t say that those who preach are the dearest to Him in this world! Because the devotees face obstacles therefore Krsna is very appreciative of the devotees, for spreading Krsna consciousness. And when it is more difficult, Krsna gives more mercy.

When Hiranyakasipu glorified Brahma he says that Brahma is the Supersoul of all beings. We read from the Bhagavad-gita that Krsna is the Supersoul. We see the same glorification of Lord Siva also when He drank the poison.

HH Jayapataka Swami:
Hiranyakasipu glorified Brahma as the Supreme Person. Hiranyakasipu is considered a demon. Now having a demon recognize you as the supreme person, what is the use of that? Prahlada maharaj, he said that Nrsimhadeva or Krsna is the Supreme Person. His father said, accept Siva or accept Brahma, but both of them are vaisnavas or devotees. And so, a demon like Hiranyakasipu accepts anyone but Visnu as God. We know that Visnu is actually the Supreme Personality of Godhead. And Siva Himself was asked by Parvati, what is the best form of worship? And He said aradhana nam sarvesam, Visnu aradhanam param. Tasmat parataram daivi tadiyanam samarthanam. Of all the types worship, worship of Lord Visnu is Supreme. But one exception. Worshipping those who are connected to Visnu is better yet. So if you worship someone as a vaisnava, like Prahlada, that pleases Lord Visnu, Nrsimhadeva more. But Lord Siva Himself says that the Supreme form of worship is Visnu, or those connected to Visnu. So why should we have doubt? Don’t listen to Hiranyakasipu. He says he is God! He told Prahlada, worship me. And in some other pastime, he may say, worship Lord Siva. But Siva Himself says worship Visnu. So who do you follow? Hiranyakasipu or Siva?
