So if you want to get out of this entanglement, there is complete arrangement, facility, complete facility. Teṣāṁ satata-yuktānāṁ bhajatāṁ prīti-pūrvakam
There is another verse, that "Those who are
engaged in devotional service," Kṛṣṇa
says, yoga-kṣemaṁ vahāmy aham
"I take personal charge for their maintenance." This is complete arrangement. Just look to the karmī
world. Now, so far we are concerned, we have to pay installment, two thousand dollars for this house, and we have
to spend another two thousand dollars for our maintenance. So four thousand, five thousand dollars we are spending. Can any karmī
depend like that? Take practical example. Can they depend for paying five thousand dollars bills without any arrangement? They will have
no sleep at night. And we are freely moving, because we are sure that Kṛṣṇa
will provide, and
He is providing. Go anywhere in the karmī's
world. Find out such nice place, just like our temple. There is none. Whole Los Angeles city, you cannot find. Such beautiful faces,
such bright faces, you cannot find anywhere. So this is complete facility. If you want to take advantage of your life, Kṛṣṇa
consciousness, then there is complete facility. Come to the practical point. There is no theoretical. It is practical, experimented.
So therefore there is complete facility for the small complete units. We are complete units, small. God is great and we are small. So small... Just like a big machine, and there is a small screw.
So the complete facility, completeness of that small screw, is to become fitted in the particular place. Then it has got value. And if it is out of touch of the machine, falls down, it has no
value. So complete facility is there. Just yourself dovetail into that hole and the screw is placed there, oh, it has value. When a screw is lost, you have to purchase from the store at the cost
of two dollars. And when it is fallen down, it is not even worth one cent. The same screw. [break] So we are complete units so long we are attached toKṛṣṇa
. Otherwise useless.
Why India is fallen down? Because the so-called rascals, they are claiming that "I am brāhmaṇa.
" But what is our occupation, sir? "Oh, I am serving as a coolie." Is that brāhmaṇa's
business? Actually I have seen,
India, a person, telawalaji
(?), born of a brāhmaṇa
he's pulling hand cart with great labor. And some foolish person also offering respect, and he is offering blessings while drawing the cart. (laughter) I have seen it. You see? These things are
going on. He does not know that "Now I am fallen. Why should I claim as brāhmaṇa?
I am cheating."
So one should keep in his own position. If you want to become a brāhmaṇa,
keep your position as the mouth of the Lord. Simply if you take thread ceremony and become something else, no, then you don't take the advantage, facility. Mouth of the Lord is
speaks from His mouth. He spoke the Bhagavad-gītā
from His mouth. So if you keep yourself to the business of His mouth, then you have to preach. Then you are
a brāhmaṇa. Mukha-bāhūru-pāda-jāḥ.
As we have got divisions in this body—this mouth, the arm, the belly, and the leg—similarly, the gigantic body of Kṛṣṇa
His mouth is
His arms are the kṣatriyas,
His belly is the vaiśyas,
and the legs are the śūdras.
the brahmacārī, gṛhastha, vānaprastha, sannyāsa.
have got different position in the different parts of the body of the whole, complete whole. So if you keep to your position and act like that, take the facility, then you are complete.
Otherwise, like the screw, you are thrown away. You have no value.
So here it is stated, "There is complete facility for the small complete units, namely the living being, to realize the complete." To realize the complete, what is my relationship with the
complete. "And all forms of incompleteness are experienced only on account of incomplete knowledge of the complete." We are thinking that "I am equal to God. I am God." This is incomplete
knowledge. But if you know that "I am part and parcel of God," that is complete knowledge. The Māyāvādī
philosophers, the atheists, they are claiming that "Who is God? I am God." That is incomplete knowledge. "The human form of life is a
complete manifestation of the consciousness." Now, this complete consciousness you can revive in this human form of life. The cats and dogs, they cannot understand. So if you don't take the
facility, then you are ātma-hanaḥ janāḥ.
You are killing yourself, committing suicide. As it is said, ātmā andhenatamasāvṛtāḥ tāṁs te pretyābhigacchanti ye ke cātma-hano janāḥ.
After death, pretyābhi... Pretya
means after death. So don't be ātma-hano janāḥ.
Utilize your life in complete
facility. That is our business.
Thank you. (end)
