Krishna House, I was asked to speak from the Bhagavatam verse 1.8.28.
There is merit to sharing words of wisdom, so I would then like to
extract from its purport the following: “It is no use saying that we do not
know why and for what we are suffering.
We may forget the misdeed for which we may suffer at this present
moment. We must remember that Paramatma (Supreme Soul) is our constant
companion. And therefore, He knows
everything, past, present and future.
And because the Paramatma feature
of Sri Krishna destines all actions and reactions, He is the supreme controller
also. Without His sanction, not a blade
of grass can move. The living beings are
given as much freedom as they deserve, and misuse of that freedom is the cause
of suffering… Everyone here wants to
lord it over material nature, and thus everyone creates his own destiny under
the supervision of the Supreme Lord. He
is all pervading and therefore, He can see everyone’s activities. And because the Lord has no beginning or end,
He is known also as the eternal time, Kala.”
comments on the topic of kala (time)
based on the teachings and practices of our guru, Srila Prabhupada are as
Time is the
most powerful representation of God in the material sphere.
We may be
governed by the movements of the sun and the moon, but it is the Supreme who
buy back a moment of time past with tons of gold. (Chanikya)
tide wait for no man.”
might consider this beautiful phrase regarding the process of nature “Yesterday
is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift.”
I would like
to thank Kelly for her hospitality and her home for a memorable sangha in the evening.
Source be with you!
