BY HEARING FROM THE REALIZED SOUL,
HE WILL REALIZE EVERYTHING
All right, I shall become humble. Then how I shall make progress?" Now, namanta eva san-mukharitam bhavadiya-vartam. "Just hear the message of God." "From whom?" San-mukharitam: "through the mouth of the devotees," not professional, not gramophone, through the mouth of, through the lips of real devotee. "So then? Next. I will have to become sannyasa or grhastha or what?" "No." Sthane sthitah. "You remain wherever you are. Either you are a grhastha or a vanaprastha, or apart from that, either you are a medical man or engineer or politician or businessman or shopkeeper--something your position is there--so you remain in that." Sthane sthitah. "You remain in your position. Simply you have to hear the message of Godhead, Krsna, through the realized saintly person." This recommendation. "If you go on speculating, you will never be able to understand. Therefore give up this practice." Jnane prayasam udapasya namanta eva. "Be submissive." If you think, "Oh, I am so much advanced. I can speculate. Why shall I go to a devotee and hear from him?" No. You have to adopt this. Why? If you want to conquer the ajita. Ajita, ajita means Krsna, or God. Nobody can conquer Him. But you can conquer Him. How? By this process. Remain your process.., remain in your situation, in your occupation, but try to hear from the realized soul. Very simple thing. So this process is recommended to realize God. Yadi... If somebody follows this process without mental speculation and if he has got intelligence, by hearing from the realized soul, he will realize everything. Krsna will also help him from within. Guru means Krsna without, and Supersoul means Krsna within. So Krsna is so kind that He is ready to help us from within and without, both ways. We have to take advantage of this.
