Hare Krishna Maharaja!

Please accept my respectful obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!

Today in FMP you said the following instruction: "listen a class given by Srila Prabhupada and write to the blog about it". So, here we go.

I listened through youtube a class about SB 3.25.43


bhakti-yogena yoginaḥ

kṣemāya pāda-mūlaṁ me

praviśanty akuto-bhayam

The yogīs, equipped with transcendental knowledge and renunciation and engaged in devotional service for their eternal benefit, take shelter of My lotus feet, and since I am the Lord, they are thus eligible to enter into the kingdom of Godhead without fear.

Now, I will share an abstract about what I understand in regard to what Srila Prabhupada said:

If you want to be not fearfulness, no more fear, you have to take shelter of the Lotus Feet of Krishna.

We are suffering because we forgot Krishna.

Srila Prabhupada talked about there are differents styles of gymnastic yoga that rascals like to practice. But the real procces is to concentrate the mind upon the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You can do it but meditation or do it 24 hours a day by practical application of your activities for Krishna. We just must to concentrate the mind on Krishna, and then naturally you become reluctant to the materials activities.

HpS - We must jump ahead here because so many more letters to answer. Your summary is very nice. Just a little more concentrated for this forum.

Srila Prabhupada also talked about every vaishnava must to become guru, and said that you become guru simply by advising everyone the instruction wich Krishna has given; and is not a difficult thing. Then you become fearless, "yes, I'm now under the protection of Krishna. I have no more fear."

Bhakti means surrender. Krishna is simple for the devotees, but not for the rascals.

Everybody is working day and night so hard only for obtain sense gratification. Finally their only happines is sexual intercourse. But, you can be free of this attachments only when you are perfectly Krishna conscious. Otherwise is not possible.

Woman is mad after man, and man is mad after woman. But when you really see Krishna, then there will be no more suffering of the piercing arrow of the cupid. And that is called Akuto-Bhayam, no more fear. And this way begins renunciation of the material world.

Finally, after listen this class I realized that I'm so fool, because after my last romantic relationship I was very hurt during a long time (even affects my relationship with Abhirama TD because I went to his home with this woman, so I know their don't like me anymore, and it's ok, I deserve this, it's my fault, but I'm still suffering because of this), and always it have been the same to me, but I still desiring women and sexual activity, even knowing that I will suffer, even knowing that one moment of material pleasure and that kind of sense gratification pays with a long time of suffering.

Please Maharaja, forgive me. I feel so tired of this. I've got less energy and less intelligence than before. Anyway, I keep trying to do my best and trying to follow you, because you are my only hope.

I read your letter to Srila Prabhupada on His Vyasapuja, and it's so beautiful, so inspiring.

Thank you very much for your words, each time you say some direct word to me, something magic happens. This is real.

Your aspiring servant,

Carlos Rold.

HpS - Why are we attracted to sexual relations? It must be the emotions mostly. What is the emotional attraction? It is perverted. While we are smoking Marajuana, engaging in sexual relations with donkeys or devatas, chant Hare Krsna, and with that little perspective we will see things as they are VERY quickly and move to the real life.

Thank you for your efforts.
