SRILA PRABHUPADA LILAMTRA AS IT IS
"My Guru Maharaja was very kind upon me because I was very much interested to hear him. That you know. I hear him. I did not understand him, actually. In the beginning I could not understand him. He was speaking in so high philosophical way that it was not...
Still, I wanted to hear him. That was my only qualification."
So we have to increase our attachment, our love for Krsna. Mayy asakta-manah partha yogam yunjan mad-asrayah. The... This is also explained. Everything is there. Mayy asakta. We have to increase our attachment for Krsna, our love of Krsna. Then we shall see Krsna always.

These are the practical experience of mahajana, Brahma. The Brahma-samhita is written by Brahma. He's mahajana. Mahajana means the person who knows Krsna. The mahajanas are described, you know. Twelve mahajanas. Naradah svayambhuh sambhuh. Narada is mahajana, and Brahma is mahajana, Svayambhu. And Lord Siva is mahajana. Kapilah kumaro manuh prahlado bhismah. The mahajanas are there. So we have to follow. Mahajano yena gatah sa panthah. We should not remain mudha-drsa. We should follow the mahajanas and the sadhus, sastra. And they recommend... The most important process is sravanam. Srnvatam sva-kathah krsnah punya-sravana-kirtanah. If we don't hear about Krsna, then how we'll make advance? We have to hear. My Guru Maharaja was very kind upon me because I was very much interested to hear him. That you know. I hear him. I did not understand him, actually. In the beginning I could not understand him. He was speaking in so high philosophical way that it was not... Still, I wanted to hear him. That was my only qualification.
So the... It is the process. During lecture time, if we don't care to hear or we do other things or take rest, that is not very good sign. We should be very much careful. Then we shall remain mudha-drsa. Nato natyadharo yatha. We have taken the vow to see Krsna or to understand Krsna. We should be very, very serious and do the needful. Then our life will be successful.
Thank you very much. Hare Krsna. (end)
