One fails to understand the greatness of the Supreme Lord. 04/20/14 From Germany.

My dear devotees, receive my affection today .

Today I want to share a very important verse  with you all so that we can all meditate on it together. It is a verse from Bhagavad Gita Chapter 9, called the most confidential knowledge.

mahatmanas tu mam partha
bhajanty ananya-manaso
jnatva bhutadim avyayam

The translation says:
"O son of Pritha, those who are not deluded, the great souls, are under the protection of the divine nature. They are fully engaged in devotional service because they know Me as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, original and inexhaustible."

In this verse the words " bhajanty ananya- manaso " mean : do service without deviation of the mind.

"jnatva bhutadim avyayam" so you can know the Lord is inexhaustible.

"avyayam": that is, He is inexhaustible. The Lord which is inexhaustible.

And there is another verse that is complementary and very important: (B.G. 9.11):

paraḿ bhāvam ajānanto
mama bhūta-maheśvaram

"Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be."

Krishna makes it clear : " Fools ignore me when I appear in human form because they do not know My transcendental nature.

And this following verse is also very important (B.G. 9.10):

mayādhyakṣeṇa prakṛtiḥ
sūyate sa-carācaram
hetunānena kaunteya
"This material nature, which is one of My energies, is working under My direction, O son of Kuntī, producing all moving and nonmoving beings. Under its rule this manifestation is created and annihilated again and again."

It is very important to learn verses. The Vedas are very powerful. The Bhagavad Gita tells us of many things. It is important here to point out that Krishna's material nature is created by Him and is under His control. That means that all living entities in this material world are created by Him- birds, snakes, crocodiles, rabbits, trees, all created by Him. And so this creation is created and annihilated again and again by His order.

So, effectively the Bhagavad Gita clearly tells us how things are. No room for speculation. Today I share with you many verses that speak for themselves (B.G. 9.2):

pratyakshavagamam dharmyam

"This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting, and it is joyfully performed. "

These verses are very important ...
One should not only memorize them, but learn the translation and read attentively the commentary of Srila Prabhupada on each verse, so that one can understand them well.

A preacher must be very qualified and must learn verses of scripture so that your message becomes consistent. So that is why the devotees in Seva work to compile the book " Pracaramrta" so that all of you can as good preachers have all the tools on hand.

This is another very powerful verse, where the omnipresence of Krishna is confirmed (B.G. 9.4):

na cāhaḿ teṣv avasthitaḥ

"By Me, in My unmanifested form, this entire universe is pervaded. All beings are in Me, but I am not in them."

A very powerful statement, and thus, the Bhagavad Gita is full of very powerful statements. The Lord says: "All beings are in Me, but I am not in them":
But, also, the Lord is at the heart of each soul, as the Paramatma ... So that is His infinite qualities.

One fails to understand the greatness of the Supreme Lord, and then when some speak of Paramatma, some think that means that we are all God, but there is nothing more wrong than that. We are part and parcel of God ... we are NOT God.

It's like saying that a parent who has 1000 children and one of those children says: "I am also the father," that's not possible, it is just another child of the same father. Not the father. It makes no sense . The other 999 children would say, "How can you say that you are our father? You are our brother." We learn all this nectar from the Bhagavad Gita. I want you to learn this nectar, and share it enthusiastically in the temples ...

As you read these statements of Bhagavad Gita and one makes them a part of their life, you find all the information you need, and it can soothe all the doubts that may come ...

Krishna is our eternal well-wisher and He left us His Bhagavad Gita to clarify any confusion about it. And besides, He sent us His beloved Srila Prabhupada to explain every detail to us so that we have a proper understanding. Krishna also says:

"Everything you do, everything that you offer or give away, only do it as an offering to Me."

That's the conclusion of the Bhagavad Gita that everything should be offered to the lotus feet of the Lord.

With these words I say goodbye for today. I thank all of you who are present each week in the Sunday Chat. In the coming days I 'm going back to Miami, New York and then to Ecuador, happy to have shared with the devotees of Germany.

I leave all my affection.
Jay Srila Prabhupada

Your always well wisher,
B. A. Swami Paramadvaiti .
