Responsive In Prayer
Presentation
on ?

we don't

throw

it off so

is

this on
dear is

it
not safe to say this

on the
mind

is
way

better than a spark from
hell

i
don't
want

you to ever
come from
hell
dear
naturally i don't expect a

spark

from
hell
to be very
responsive
to

the
original personal sound of any

presentation
burning

with sub-conscious
leftover
knowledge

of that which is not

this and
nothing

more a spark
from

hell has

not
been

original

for

a
very very long

time

dear
yes
i

don't
want you to

ever come from
hell
dear that

would
not be

a very
nice presentation now

would it
so is this
presentation

scholarly

and patient as

yet
no pressure you

know

as well

as i do
certainly
there is no

harm
in

asking

in the middle of this as
one

wonders yes one

does

wonder
if this presentation needs to

be
more
reverent and awesome
already
from another
point
of

view

do you

feel as

though
this here
presentation

is coming through

the
middle
as
friendly
and
touching dear

nurturing

and
fulfilling

lovely

and sweet yes
i
wonder how at
any rate
and

you

do

you wonder about
this

presentation in the
middle
exactly

do you
wonder
if this presentation is timely
dear
certainly

one
must wonder
how

personal
this is

going

to get even

as
one and i know this
has to be

about

Sri Krsna Caitanya somehow or
other yes but

why

why oh
why can't

we
approach that

self

same Sri Krsna
Caitanya
Mahaprabhu
directly one
wonders

are we too

too spaced out like this
dear one

certainly

we
know

Sri Krsna Caitanya Radha Krsna nahe anya
and how

nice yes very

very

nice
They look together yes golden
nice
They are
sweet
and

lovely
yes just golden together dear
heart
but one
really

yes

really
really
one

can't

help but wonder
why can't
we

get
our

act
together
so
to speak
there

are actually
so

many

nice
presentations coming

directly
from the

simply wonderful most

attractive
Sri Krsna of course together
with the
dear most similarly
marvellous
Srimati Radharani and all yes

why
can't

we

better understand how

presentable

one
is

dear
when yes when

one

plus one makes
one
nice

presentation

or
one's

presentations nice
and
directly

about the

more

than a
little
charitable
Sri Krsna Caitanya
Mahaprabhu instead

of

worrying
about
who approaches Sri Krsna now

or
who in the

three

worlds comes
directly from
the
Supreme Personality of Godhead like
this

presentation or
that presentation
isn't

one
enough

really we know
for

example
Thakur Bhaktivedanta
yes we

know

a perfectly
presentable personality
like the most
gentle
H.D.G. A.C. Bhaktivedanta
Swami Srila Prabhupada
is

one via

medium

one
is

enough to set us straight
in the middle
of

this

certainly

there does
tend to
be
wonder
but no

worries really there

is

a mighty fine example each of us
really would love

to sustain again

and
again
that's

all

and
one can
only wonder

how
at
times

like this yes so please

forgive

me
kindly you know

how

i
am

really

trying

to get this
presentation
together in the

middle

of
one

more without

approaching
all
the nonsense

directly

from one

perspective
already
but
yes here
i
go
in
a nut

shell
now

getting a
little more personal

in

the middle of this very
presentation
dear so

why

why oh why oh why would one
stop

and

think
of one
yes why

would

one
think

of one
as

one
originally

being from what you and
i know

as nothing
other

than
the

popping

hell of being now and again
a bad

acting
impersonal

spark
of lighter knowledge

than
necessary
for this presentation
that is
no

way
to be

directly

certain
about

one
and one

won't

have to

worry
about one approaching in full
knowledge only

to

surrender
at
once like
that
smoke

and

mirrors
presentation dear

Hare Krsna !

yes

Gaura-hari

Gaura-hari
jaya jaya Sacinandana Gaura-hari !
chant and
again
come on now and chant
Hare Krsna again
yes
please
and again
please chant
again
and
be happy chanting

Hare Krsna
yes

yes
this

is

getting

too
personal for no

one

really
no

one at all so long

as
one

still
has senses this is never going
to
get
too

personal for us
in
a

timely fashion

no

pancha-tattvatmakam krishnam
bhakta-rupa-svarupakam
bhaktavataram bhaktakhyam
namami bhakta-shaktikam
"I bow down to Lord Krishna,
who appears as a devotee (Lord Caitanya),
as His personal expansion (Sri Nityananda),
His incarnation (Sri Advaita),
His devotee (Sri Srivasa),
and His energy (Sri Gadadhara),
and who is the source of strength
for

the
devotees." (Cc.Adi.1.14)

yes Hare Krsna !

jaya Srila Prabhupada !

Hari-bol
how

would i make
you

out

to

be impersonal
do
you

do

you ever get the feeling
one
has

to
start

all
over again i

have
yes i

have

this

i

have
this sneaking

suspicion

that
is

starting all over again whatever

that

was
all

about yes whatever
whatever

i

know

whatever i know i am

whatever i

know

i

am
not

interested
to start making

this all

about

false

ego
like this okay we can

we

can

we
can make this

all
about one
getting
closer
to
Sri Krsna or

forget
it

okay

no false ego

'kay

one can just
start

over

from
where one left off okay ?

i know

she

will

and

so will he
whomever
they are

why should one make them

out

to

be

impersonal now

and
again no one

would
get

away

with
it

anyhow

Hare Krsna !

yes
jaya

Radhe !

" This song was sung by
Rüpa Gosvami.

He is the real person, actual person, to
understand
Radha and Krsna.
So he says, All glories to Radharani.
Radhe jaya jaya madhava-dayite. She's so dear to
Krsna.

Krsna, everyone is trying to love
Krsna, but
Krsna
is trying to love somebody. Now how great
She is.
Just try to understand.

Everyone, the whole
world, the whole universe, all
living entities, they are trying to
love Krsna.

Krsna-prema.

Lord Caitanya describes,
prema-pumartho mahan. And Rüpa Gosvami described
that You are distributing krsna-prema. So krsna-prema is
so valuable, but Krsna
is after Radharani. Just see how
Radharani is
great. Just try to understand
the
greatness of
Radharani. Therefore She
is so great, and we have to offer
our respect.

Radhe jaya jaya madhava-dayite."

jaya Srila Prabhupada !
Just A Second
whomever doesn't kill
one
crow

like

mentality makes one stronger than that which is
not
it somehow or other it
just
now seems like
it in a way mind
you it is
relatively

easy to understand
there

is murder in your heart if you

eat

crow dear or otherwise indulge in the end
of
one
everything
with a beginning and an end not
worth remembering or in other words lacking
the revolvingly memorable aspect of transcendental
occurrence
is

a perverted reflection of itself take it

or leave

it
stuff
yes
you can't do that with spirit
no you can't

take

or leave your spirit as easily as that
is
to

understand

how

the
absolutely memorable transcendental
occurrence revolves spiritually

is

the spirit yes that's the

spirit
dear nothing is easy too you know
take
it or leave it stuff is easy
to

forget but it is not
just
as easy to remember what

all
that which is

not

was all about in a

pinch like it
or

not the transcendental aspect of
occurrence

smiles in the middle of
your

confused state of mind such

that it is
certainly

it is not

mine to control or savour like
one
who is ultimately
going
to save you the trouble

of sorting it

out
that goes with the territory
dear the insurmountable territorial imperative
indicates you
won't
be able to follow along in a

daze you have
got
to get with
it
and
let it go that is the nature of it yes

hold on

tight

now
let
go it is
not
for everyone obviously but for
some

it is immensely confidential that's

all like spelling
is

for me i can't spell worth a
toot

and a holler dear no i
have to

keep
back checking the spelling as
much
as that
which is not
this and for that i need help so similarly
one

for whom it is just somehow
or

other as immensely confidential there

is the necessary

help !

so yes don't tell
me
you haven't got a prayer
write
as if one's life depended on it yes
write me

a
prayer

write

yourself
one
too

we'll all pray together in
Krsna consciousness and get a
life
demons
think

too
too

positive

about
a weak state of mind you know yes in a
way they are
in the way of one another because they
think
too

positive

like a man struggling to make ends
meet
by main force in a weak
state
of mind
there is a weak state of mind dear

heart that one can overcome but is it

not better to live a
life
of prayer with a full

bodied

personality in the balance like

this we pray

together is it
not
that
we
are rather pessimistic about one's weak
state
of mind and don't wish to
be

bothered

with
how it can be overcome so much
like
that

which

is not this

i personally support a strong state of mind as i

say
jaya Srila Prabhupada yes jaya Srila Prabhupada !
i say this

is the life

praying

for a weak state of mind to continue manipulating the
demoniac so effectively
i want them occupied to the max with their ability to

overcome a weak

state
of
mind
dear it helps me to concentrate on
Krsna
consciousness yes haribol now haribol !

i am listening and will respond in kind so to speak

yes

to demons and devotees alike in case

you are interested so suddenly

dear
hold on tight now let
go
yes let
them

think

again
deja-vu is good for what ails one in
a weak state of mind to a
great extant so long as one has the tendency to
overcome
one
another it is a weak

state of mind that one is

actually

in yes being overcome with the
desire to overlord no one else but themselves until
they remember Krsna and how
He
is

held

in high esteem no matter what state of mind
is
overcome with the desire to overlord
one
another yes let
them
think

again we have
enough

to support and yes worship the eternal
spiritual
master in mind
body
and words one's own words
are indicative of

that
yes

yes
pray that one
remembers

that in reality the inevitable i do
wish
that all kinds of character assassination would
stop
at any rate but one

knows what

one
is

doing dear heart until we meet
again on the banks of the Godavari River there
is a time
and a
place for all
kinds
of character assassination don't you
know

how

i
wish though i wish no

one
would concentrate on where one
is
from or where to go
and
escape

it
let's build character anyway we can as
one knows what
one
is

doing

yes being responsive in prayer one
must have known
what
one was doing everywhere time
is

one
way

time isn't yes

time
isn't everything you

know

nor is it

everything
you

don't

know dear but don't get me started
on that it is more
or less time
as you

know
there
is the ghost

of a chance one will
be
recognizable as an easy
listener in no time at
all

still there

in the Chandogya Upanisad (5.1.15) it is
said,
na vai vaco na caksumsi
na srotrani na manamsity

acaksate prana iti evacaksate
prano hy evaitani sarvani bhavanti:

"In the body of a living
being neither the power to speak,
nor the power to see,
nor the power to hear, nor the power to think is
the prime factor; it is life
which is the center of all activities."
Similarly Lord Vasudeva, or the Personality
of Godhead, Lord Sri Krsna, is the prime entity in
everything.

In this body there are powers
of speaking, of seeing, of hearing,of mental
activities, etc.
But these are not important if
not related to the Supreme Lord .And because
Vasudeva
is all-pervading and everything
is Vasudeva,
the devotee surrenders in full knowledge

i don't
imagine any of you all want to
be seemingly covered
over in an unseemly relationship
only
to have one

personality at a time burst

out
at the seams like one but one
will at any time realize that
there
is no time
like the present to be
that way
yes be
that

as
it

may i personally

don't
imagine any of you becoming God
all the same yes all
the same there
is the
ghost
of a chance one will be
recognizable as an easy listener in no time at all
still there

yes yes still there so
are you

still there all and all
there is the sound of one there
is that you there that sounds like
one is listening to the Hare Krsna
mahamantra in no time at all
is that you listening to God so suddenly
and listening and listening all
over again to the Lord's own
mantra
listening to
Sri Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu's own
maha mantra
Hare Krsna Hare Krsna
Krsna Krsna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
all and
all
are you all

there

sounding
like one is

listening

to the Hare Krsna mahamantra in no
time at all
there

is the ghost

of
a chance one
will be
recognizable as an easy
listener in no time at all still
there
you know

yes as this is next that is of course

all that

this
sounds like in no time
now so do
you
as we
do

know

the sound of
more

than one of us listening to
Srila Prabhupada
simultaneously
being
one and different in reality
the inevitable all and all

listening yes all
and all we

know
about

vāsudevaḥ sarvam iti

being

put into perspective
yes listening
in the context of the

Bhagavad-gita as it is
we know

how
we are

being

put into perspective

bahunam janmanam ante
jnanavan mam prapadyate
vasudevah sarvam iti
sa mahatma su-durlabhah

The living entity, while executing devotional
service or transcendental rituals after
many, many births, may actually become situated
in transcendental pure knowledge that the Supreme
Personality of Godhead
is the ultimate goal of spiritual realization.
In the beginning of spiritual realization, while one is trying
to give up one’s attachment to materialism, there
is some leaning towards impersonalism, but when one
is further advanced he can understand that there are
activities in the spiritual life and that these activities
constitute
devotional service.
Realizing this, he becomes attached
to the Supreme Personality
of Godhead and surrenders to Him. At such a
time one can understand that Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s mercy
is everything, that He is
the cause of all causes and that this
material manifestation is not independant from
Him. He realizes the material world to be
a perverted reflection of spiritual variegatedness
and realizes that in everything there is a
relationship with the Supreme Lord Kṛṣṇa.
Thus he thinks of everything
in relation to Vāsudeva,
or Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Such a universal vision
of Vāsudeva precipitates one’s full
surrender to the Supreme Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa
as the highest goal.
Such surrendered great souls are very rare.

vāsudevaḥ sarvam iti
sa mahātmā sudurlabhaḥ

jaya Srila Prabhupada !
All and All
are certain

personality
traits always as

elusive or

quite

simply
as academic

as

can be

innocence ?

pure volition ?
wit ?

alacrity ?
affection ?
depth ?

loyalty ?
one will

read

and read to

find

out

yes
one has

decided
to

be

like this as
well
as one

makes do with

this

personality

trait so to

speak
yes

so

can a

personality

trait

just

be

something

of
a

lifestyle in
mind

made up
the

state

of society so

to
speak

or purely
a

segment

of it

decadence?

grace ?

poor taste ?

neutrality ?
preeminence ?

confusion ?

how rarely

is
one

known to

be

mixed

or

undefeated
at

any

rate
and forgiven

or
unforgiven of one's

own

volition

fooled ?

forgetful ?

eccentric ?

lonely?
forgetful ?
lusty?

endless ?

psychopathic?
dumbfounded ?

responsible ?

untouchable ?
callow ?
creative ?

wise ?
submissive
forgetful ?

impersonated ?

is
there

any

question
one

wonders

in many ways whether or

not

one's
personal
reality is

less

than
representative in one

way

or another
or just plain

conditioned
to

a

kind

of spin
no

matter how one

expresses

oneself
rare

is the instant

road

worthy

aid like
this
at
any
rate yes because
why ?

because we

know
there

is hardly

anyone else where

this

is

going
with this yes

hardly

anyone else but

one
finding
time
answering
life

is
no

doubt the

prime

factor

at any rate yes original
and

sound one

knows

the
character

of the living

force

in
eternity

chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa like there

is never a

gain

that is

one's

loss

as
such yes and

how

nothing falls

just through

one
lending

even

a
sub-conscious ear to

life

where the experienced

are

an

experience
experienced and

remembered

as feeling
free to

go

last
or next in

mysterious

ways
and

at first who

said

at first
who
i mean to say who at

first

said

one

not
far

away from
being an experience
in more

than
one

place at once is too

vulnerable like
it

or

not  ?
Too Vulnerable ?
unless
one hears the sound one

never

would

miss
how can one be responsive

but beautiful
we

are i remember

as
peacefully

as one

can be still
there

are

ways even

this

introspection
misses

you that
way

do you want me to

explain

i can be

still

somewhat

still
you

might
say

passive
yes but why

should
one be

impersonal there

is

no
reason
naturally one

can
find

no reason to
be

impersonal like this

introspection never

could

have
been

all inclusive

unless

one hears the sound one

never
would

miss

how can one be responsive
yes
but beautiful

we

are i remember

and

one listens to
one

yes

so
there

is

no question
about

it

one is listening
to

one

unless
one hears the sound one

never
would

miss

and shares with
us
time

and

time again

all
we have

is

each

other
so

where

is the

sound

one

never

would miss you
might

as well ask

now
yes

now
we
might

as well

ask
one

remembering
Krsna always and

never forgetting

how He is

most

attractive in body

and
in mind yes we might

as well
ask
now

since
there

is

one

that
sounds like one

is
listening

that

way

right now right ?
Listening Right Now
Contempt and Contempt
So

far

as one can tell one

is not

all
that familiar

with
it but it

is

said familiarity breeds

contempt and contempt

is the

road

to

hell
the
road
to false
ego
one

had

better chant Hare Krsna
without

it
all

the
same knowing one

had better
chant
Hare Krsna

yes
all

acts

are mysterious as

mysterious
as they
are

honorable as honorable

certainly

as
life

one

discovers
life is

mysterious
honor

mystery

and you
discover

life yes
that

is

easy

enough for one
to say

like this so
far

as
one
can tell
one
is

not all that

familiar

with it but

it
is

said
familiarity breeds
contempt
and
contempt

is the road

to hell
the

road to false
ego
so

one
had better yes

one

had

better
chant Hare Krsna
dear shadow
of the former self one

sees

the inspiration
to
meditate in peace
there
can be

no

disgrace leaving
aside

one's
undesirable place in
the war
between demons and
ghosts

there

are so

many
relationships
even as feeling

the
presence of
the eternal

spiritual
master isn't immediately
evident
like this without
the
prospect of harmony

yes there
are
so

many that
are

like that
between

a demon and a ghost
dear
shadow of the

former

self
let

us meditate on the kind
of harmony one
can

relate to so
suddenly
Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Harmony
