Jyotish Inspirations and Contemplations

To all the devotees at VNN. Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Keep up the good work at VNN Web site. Freedom of press and speech
is the right of all living entities. Just as love and service
to Lord Krsna is every spirit-souls freedom of choice.
At the same time, here on planet earth, this freedom of press
and speech is both a blessing and a curse, depending how you exercise
your freedom. Please continue to pray for Srila Prabhupada's guidance
in these matters and he will guide you from within. Those at VNN
have a right to freedom of speech. Use your constitutional position

I have written a Jyotish article that I wish to share with you.
You may do as you wish with this article. This writing was created
under a moment of deep Jyotish inspiration and contemplation in
relationship to Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya.
Perhaps we can call this essay "Jyotish Inspirations and Contemplations".
Before I begin I would like to take a moment to make a point very
clear in the eye's of the readers. I am a Vedic astrologer. I've
been studying and practising various forms of astrology for most
of my life. Jupiter and Mercury are two of the most important
planetary blessings that a Jyotishi must have to enhance astrological
abilities. My Jupiter and Mercury are in a proper position. Similarly,
for a person to find their way to the door of a good astrologer
they must have a well placed Mercury and Jupiter in the chart.
One or both of these planets must be in a good place in the horoscope.
I have been read by some of the best astrologers on the planet
over the past 25 years. I used to personally seek them out. Out
of all these I can only boast of two very profound readings. One
came from a 9th generation astrologer and Shadow reader in India,
the other from an astrologer in south America.
Some seekers of jyotish insights find themselves cheated and disillusioned
by their astrological experience. Some have a most wonderfully
rewarding and enlightening horoscope reading. Srila Prabhupada
taught us the we live in a society of the cheaters and the cheated.
It appears that the law of karma has a place for everyone. As
with any thing else in this age, there are good astrologers, there
are bad astrologers. In every department of life there is the
good, the bad and the ugly. The bad and ugly may disturb the good
that is astrologically available, but, it does not negate astrology.
One bad doctor does not negate the need or good that doctors do.
It's a matter of personal karma who the seeker ends up consulting.
In the past 20 years I have studied and read hundreds and hundreds
of horoscope. Every chance I could I would acquire the birth data
of devotees. I have studied charts of Iskcon authorities, sannyasi,
various Gurus, leaders, presidents, Iskcon Inc, house holders,
brahmachari, mothers and children. In the near future I will be
writing a book called "Jyotish, Three modes of Material Nature
and Yoga". The book will be based on jyotish conclusions after
studying hundreds of charts of various devotees, yogi's, sages
and mystics. The horoscope examples in this book will bear "no
name" in order to protect one from any necessary embarrassment
or glorification. The intention of the book is not to embarrass
or glorify but to enlighten through the Eyes of Jyotish. The only
chart I presently wish to glorify is Srila Prabhupada's.
I will take only a moment more to say that after study of so many
charts over the years I have certainly formed some Jyotish conclusions.
Because I'm an astrologer my favorite chapter in the Bhagavad-Gita
is "Three Modes of Material Nature. Srila Prabhupada teaches us
that the 14th chapter of the Bhagavad-Gita is the most important
chapter of all. Refer to the first page of chapter fourteen in
this matter. The three modes of material nature work under stringent
control laws. Through the three modes of ignorance, passion and
goodness the laws of karma play itself out. The laws of karma,
the laws of material nature are very powerful and stringent. In
fact these laws are so stringent that few people become released
from them in one mere life time. We understand from the teachings
of the Bhagavad-Gita that out of thousands who practise yoga only
a few maintain life long practise. Out of those few perhaps "ONE"
attains the goal.
After many, many life times of spiritual endeavor does the living
entity acquire the necessary astrological positions in the birth
horoscope to reach Godhead. For all intensive purposes the living
entities can consider themselves in a maximum security situation.
I have noted the charts and read in the Bhagavatam of yogis who
have risen to great spiritual heights. Upon study of the horoscope
it is noted that the planetary positions in the horoscope are
exactly in the proper place to achieve these spiritual goals.
When Srila Prabhupada was born the astrologer predicted from the
planetary positions in the horoscope, that Srila Prabhupada was
a great Guru and he would spread Krsna consciousness all over
the world. Srila Prabhupada's Guru was a master Jyotishi, a brilliant
mathematician and pure devotee. Upon the study of Lord Caitanya's
horoscope His true identity as the Supreme Lord was revealed.
When Krsna was born the planets arranged themselves to accommodate
His past times. It is obvious that planetary arrangements at the
moment of birth play an important role our lives.
Similarly I have studied the charts of yogi's who after rising
to a great spiritual position, after years and years of sadhanna
and mantra meditation, fall down into deep sense gratification
and degradation. At the time of spiritual adversity the birth
chart and the present planetary periods and transits through the
horoscope, were right in position and timing for this occurrence
to take place. Some times the aspiring yogi may come into a Saturn
period of life and is drawn toward greater renunciation. The yogi
may even take deeper vows due to the Saturn influence. However,
if Saturn is not in a strong position for such commitment trouble
will come in due course. In due course when the unfortified Saturn
influence has subsided, the yogi falls from his position. A well
placed Saturn is absolutely necessary for complete ease and success
in renunciation. This knowledge can save the yogi from making
a wrong decision in these matters which can cause spiritual havoc
to themselves or those who depend on the yogi for spiritual inspiration
When the planets are in the correct position for rise in spiritual
life the living entity attains this position during the proper
planetary periods. The transits also are predictive tools to show
the timing of event. When the planets are not in a supportive
position in the birth chart it only becomes a matter of time when
these weakened planets become active by planetary period and/or
transits through the chart. At this time the aspiring yogi experiences
difficulties. Depending upon the strength and purity of the yogi
he/she may even give up spiritual life. It has been concluded
that the rise and fall of everyone can be determined through jyotish
mathematics. There is over-whelming evidence that yogi's and devotees
of all wakes of life are not exempt from the stringent laws of
material nature upon their horoscope. The yogi has declared war
upon the laws of nature. The yogi struggles against the dictates
of their horoscope until reaching a top most position in yoga.
Living entities who are not on any conscious spiritual path are
subject to the laws of their horoscope like puppets on a string.
The planetary positions in the horoscope is their particular combination
of the three modes of material nature. Those who take to spiritual
enlightenment through various forms of sadhanna and meditation
are not as easily effected by the pushing of their chart. This
much depends on the spiritual strength of the yogi and mercy of
Krsna. Every day that the yogi forces the pushings of the modes
into spiritual activities becomes another day when the aspirant
does indeed interfere with their chart. They do not allow the
modes any mundane expression thus burning off or slowly dissolving
their accumulated karma. Every day, every hour, year and decade
the battle of the modes continues. The practising yogi or yogini
may last in their spiritual battle against the modes for a life
time, or, they may not! This will be indicated in the horoscope.
For most spiritually aspiring living entities it only becomes
a matter of time when the right planetary period comes along and
they fall from their spiritual platform. They did not have the
chart reinforcement to with stand the onslaughts of karmic conditioning,
debts and credits. Few are astrologically qualified. Hundreds
of charts and lifes experiences have indicated just this.
If the living entity wants to achieve some of the highest levels
of spiritual development Saturn becomes the primary planet of
choice. Saturn gives the ability for true renunciation. For true
spiritual detachment and manifestation of the highest spiritual
qualities expressed in human form, Saturn must be in a first class
position in the horoscope. If Saturn is not in the proper position
there will be no question of life long renunciation. In Srila
Prabhupada's horoscope Saturn was exalted in the 10th house of
status, integrity and worldly recognition. Not only was Srila
Prabhupada's Saturn in a stately position. Saturn became the most
powerful karmic controlling planet in His life. Saturn rules His
Capricorn lagna. This lagna represent's Prabhupada's over-all
destiny. Saturn is Rahu's karmic controlling planet in Srila Prabhupada's
chart. Saturn/Rahu were the supreme controlling planets in the
life and times Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada indeed displayed
the highest qualities and spiritual assets of Saturn. He was totally
renounced and free from the dictates of this material world. Srila
Prabhupada displayed qualities and character traits typical of
Saturn. He was grave, serious, sober, patient, persevering, responsible,
dedicated, disciplined, wise, humble, thrifty, practical, spiritually
ambitious, honest, sincere, non-attached to results, ascetic,
perfectionist, display of high human qualities, organized, grounded
in Krsna and a spiritual leader amongst men. These are all Saturn
qualities that are needed and displayed by a yogi who has Saturn
in a first class position in the horoscope. Every serious yogi,
sannyasi or person seeking to maintain celibacy needs Saturn on
their side for long lasting results. Srila Prabhupada had this
Saturn position in His chart. I will be writing more Jyotish articles
regarding the glories of Srila Prabhupada's horoscope in the near
future. Stay tuned.
If there are any astrologers who still questions the prominence
of Capricorn lagna and Saturn in Srila Prabhupada's life and personality,
take a moment to browse through the hundreds of photographs of
Srila Prabhupada. The grave, serious and sober nature of Srila
Prabhupada reveals itself time and time again. Only a few pictures
show Prabhupada's lighter nature hidden under the Saturn external
influence of His lagna.
As an astrologer I want to maintain a certain standard of ethic
and moral. I do not pass personal judgement upon any horoscope
or any one. I have studied enough charts to know that all living
entities are struggling under the three modes of material nature
as depicted by their horoscope and taught by Srila Prabhupada.
It is not my position to judge any one based on personal feelings.
My duty as an astrologer and devotee of Lord Caitanya is to see
everyone as spirit-soul and develop compassion for the living
entities position. Through the eyes of jyotish and the teachings
of the Bhagavad-Gita I try and give material and spiritual guidance
to my clients. I never give a reading without informing the living
entity of his constitutional position as spirit-soul and his/her
eternal relationship with Krsna. In this way I serve my spiritual
At the same time I must speak about my horoscope findings as it
appears or becomes inspired within. I must act without personal
bais influence, sticking to the astrological data that is before
me. In this way I remain spiritually detached and judge each chart
according to the laws of Jyotish. I believe in divine justice.
The law of karma brings every thing to balance. I need not waste
my time with concerns of revenge or reward. Srila Prabhupada showed
me that this law of karma exists. Srila Prabhupada taught me that
the three modes of material nature are all prevading, stringent
and powerful. Jyotish study and practise has taught me factually
that Srila Prabhupada was right. In this way, in this mood, I
serve my spiritual master. God Bless you all.
"Jyotish Visions and Contemplations"
THE FLOWER OF HOPE:
Due to the immense mercy of Lord Caitanya, disciples of Srila
Prabhupada are eligible for instant transferal to the spiritual
world upon death. I don't doubt this tremendous possibility for
one moment. To doubt this would be a gross limitation upon the
mercy of Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya.
Another way to say this would be " We have transcended the three
modes of material nature by the unlimited mercy of Guru and Gauranga.
All glories to His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
All glories to Lord Caitanya Maha Prabhu.
As far as the cosmic laws of Jyotish are concerned we made a contract
with Srila Prabhupada. Until we fulfill that contract in full
we are bound, nay, were obligated to fulfill this contract until
perfection. We made an extremely transcendental contract with
a group of pure devotees. We made a contract with Lord Caitanya
Maha Prabhu. It's not a question of will we fulfill our deal with
Srila Prabhupada? Indeed we will!
As far as the laws of Jyotish are concerned it appears to be a
matter of life times in service of our spiritual master. Do not
be disillusioned into thinking that our misgivings are so many,
so great that we can break a contract with Maha Guru and walk
away? At the same time let us not be naive enough to think that
we can cause trouble or embarrassment to our Guru in the name
of being a devotee. This action may or may not prevent you from
receiving Lord Caitanya's mercy but it certainly could delay it.
Offense to a pure devotee is a very serious transgression of religious
principles. We could earn a serious chastisement by Lord Caitanya
that were not apt to forget. There is no mercy available like
the mercy of Lord Caitanya. Similarly there is no wrath like the
transcendental anger of the Lord. It is our duty to glorify Srila
Prabhupada not to embarrass or interfere with His divine integrity
and position. Make Srila Prabhupada proud of you. Be a good example
and represent Srila Prabhupada nicely. Please do not make Him
ashamed of your actions. Behave like a nice Vaisnava devotee and
represent Srila Prabhupada well. In this way you remain eligible
for Lord Caitanya's mercy.
As long as we have this material body we are bound to the stringent
laws of the three modes of material nature. We are bound to our
past and present actions. As long as one has to take any material
form in this universe, on this earth planet, the earthly form
becomes subject to the laws of nature. We must work within the
confines of these three modes of nature.
The horoscope represents our personal entanglement in these three
modes. The combinations are unlimited. Due to our particular type
of chart, our unique type of entanglement can be understood in
terms of these three modes. Our charts reveal our mode entanglement.
In this present state of our planet, our universe, most living
entities have quite a mixture of modes in their chart.
Very rarely will you get a horoscope that has all the 9 planets
in constellations representing the mode of goodness. Any one born
with such a chart at this time must be a special incarnation of
some kind. In Satya yuga we could bare witness to charts of this
superior nature. In Kali Yuga this is not so. In Kali yuga astrology
has been cursed to lose 20% of its potency. This does not disqualify
Jyotish as a bonafide science. Even at 80% this divine science
becomes highly useful in the hands of a competent Jyotishi. Jyotish
can help guide the aspiring yogi on how to best serve Krsna and
maintain a good spiritual platform. Jyotish can reveal every ones
capacity in devotional service. This is important and vital information
if the yogi wants to last in devotional service a life time. We
understand in the Nectar of Devotion that one should perform their
yoga according to natural capacity. Over endeavor will result
in fall down in due course. The yogi must be honest with himself
and fight maya from an honest platform. The yogi must learn to
pace himself just as a long distant runner or athlete would do.
The history of our movement has taught us these lessons quite
well. Krsna consciousness is not cheap nor easily achieved. We
must use our intelligents in these matters. The Guru's position
is to guide the disciple in a practical way so that the disciple
does not fall away from spiritual endeavors. The Guru must understand
the nature of the disciple. The Guru must be aware of the nature
of the disciples difficulties and guide accordingly. The Guru
must capture the heart of his disciple. The disciple must feel
loved and safe under the Guru's guidance and protection.
One remains in the repeated cycle of birth and death until the
living entity purifies each and every one of these modes, raising
them from ignorance to the platform of passion, then from passion
unto goodness, then goodness to pure goodness. When the living
entity attends to some form of strict sadhanna, to yoga, to the
process of chanting Hare Krsna, to serving Srila Prabhupada, you
begin the process of purifying your particular combination of
modes. As they become purified the personality and character of
the person begins to transform from less lethargy to more passion
then from passion to more goodness. The bodily complexion changes
from pale to effulgent. Once having situated all his/her planets
in the mode of goodness the living entity can understand the nature
of the soul and the purpose of human life. Until one is firmly
situated in goodness there is no question of fully understanding
the nature of the soul in relationship to Krsna. Until the yogi
is situated firmly in pure goodness there is no question of self-realization.
The yogi begins to show sign's of steady and comfortable spiritual
advancement as the purification process takes place.
Bhakti yoga and regulated sadhanna begin the process of controlling
these modes so that they only can perform according to the standards
that the yogi is demanding upon them. The better your sadhanna,
the more attentive your japa, the more safe you are in spiritual
life. The control upon your modes burns, purifies and ultimately
dissolves your karma and all mode connections and combinations.
IN the yoga process the devotee struggles against the pushings
of the horoscope modes, which are a combination of past and present
karmic conditions indicated in your horoscope. Until the yogi
is very advanced, he or she will always be combating their particular
combination of the three modes of material nature. These modes
never give up until the most advanced stages of purification.
The most stringent yogi, the most serious yogi walks a razor edge
in later and advanced stages. If the yogi slacks off for a minute
the three modes can bombard him beyond control. We cannot under
estimate the power of our particular combination of the three
modes of nature in our horoscope. The horoscope is our fight against
our maya. Our maya is a very powerful influence already developed
over life times of accumulated actions and re-actions.
One can perform strict celibacy and other practices for many,
many years while holding back the awesome pushing's of the modes
within the chart. Then one day the yogi lets go. The modes cause
the senses to run crazy. The yogi becomes dizzy and confused while
being controlled by his mode combination. The dictates of his
horoscope flood down upon him/her like thunder and lightening.
This is why it is often seen that the aspiring yogi becomes intensely
absorbed in sense gratification upon quitting strict religious
practices. The devotee may become like an indulgent child set
free in a candy store or something even worse.
This process of bhakti yoga can be compared to declaring war upon
your earthly inclinations. Once the aspirant begins serious sadhanna,
his particular combinations of modes begin to attack. They attack
because these modes are craving for attention as dictated in the
horoscope. But the strict yogi does not allow the pushing their
mundane form of expression. He hourly, daily, monthly, yearly
forces them to do an act of spiritual purification, which in turn
purifies these modes. Yoga practise puts them through the fire
of purification. Slowly but surely, bhakti yoga purifies the devotees
actions and reactions. Ultimately this process dissolves all your
karma, good and bad, until there is nothing left but your spirit-soul.
For most living entities on the conscious spiritual quest this
means life times of spiritual practice and purification. In other
words the yogi must earn his spiritual merits.
Barring the unlimited mercy of Guru and Gauranga the stringent
laws of material nature indicate that many if not most of us will
re-incarnate and link once again to this movement. Our present
horoscope most often indicates just this. We must at least continue
to incarnate into this movement until we get a birth in which
we follow our original vows, our contract to Srila Prabhupada
without fail. In order to fulfill our contract properly we must
be pure in heart. Our heart as well as the emotions and intellect
must all be in perfect awareness and peace with the absolute truth.
The heart must soften and change in harmony with our knowledge.
Until then there will remain a feeling of impersonalism due to
compassion acting in an unrealized or heart felt way. The state
of one's heart is a very important factor in determining one's
level of true advancement. It is also an important factor in determining
Lord Caitanya's mercy upon you. If your heart is in the right
place, if you remain sincere regardless of your present conditioning,
time, place and circumstance you continue to be protected by Lord
Caitanya and His mercy is yours to have. Reflect upon the story
of the Brahmin and the prostitute. The Brahmin condemned the prostitute.
The prostitute glorified and yearned to be the Brahmin. Do to
conditioning, time, place and circumstance the prostitute was
entangled in a very difficult position. She held great sorrow
in her heart due to her degraded position. In her heart she sincerely
wanted to be a nice devotee. At the time of death the Brahmin
took birth in a prostitute family. The prostitute took birth in
a Brahmin family. This story shows us that any one can be put
into a position of deep conditioning that interferes with our
spiritual progress. This story reveals to us the importants of
a good heart and sincere nature. If the heart remains true under
such conditions the devotee is protected and never forgotten by
Guru and Gauranga regardless of frailties and misgivings. The
mother and father make this sacrifice to their children through-out
their lives. Guru is none different except that His mercy is far,
far greater than earthly love. When the Guru looks at His disciple,
what does He see? He see's spirit-Soul. That's what He sees! The
Guru has true vision. He sees the spirit-soul in everyone. He
sees Krsna every where.
In due course we all will reach a birth where we can follow all
the principle's that are necessary for greater advancement. When
one has the tools, the qualifications, the task becomes easy.
We all could very well meet again and again throughout the next
5000 years. Many lives, many forms will come and go. The various
scenarios, different body forms and past times that we will yet
pass through until perfection is absolutely astounding. Do not
mistake the scaffolding for the building. WE are not a finished
product. We are in the making.
Family life, wife and children form some of the strongest karmic
ties. We will connect again with our past wives and children.
Krsna consciousness is one big family. We will all play this out
in various roles. In due course everything is brought to balance
by the stringent laws of material nature. We all will walk this
earth as a pure devotee still in service of Srila Prabhupada.
We will again continue to work for Srila Prabhupada until Lord
Caitanya's mission is complete.
Believe in the strength and mercy your Guru. He is very powerful
and His influence upon the Supreme Lord is without question. Lord
Krsna is His servant because of the love and devotion of Srila
Prabhupada. We have become connected to such an incredible spiritual
heritage of pure and merciful devotees. This unlimited mercy of
Guru and Gauranga has never been available before to human kind.
We connected to Maha Guru. He connected you to His spiritual master
His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sidhanta Sarasvati Goswami Maharaja.
He in turn connects you to every other pure devotee in the line
of succession. Prabhupada connected you to Lord Caitanya and all
of His entourage. Try sitting down one day and list the lineage
of personalities we connect to upon initiation by Srila Prabhupada.
There are demigods who are very envious of our position. To become
initiated by Srila Prabhupada we had a small window of opportunity.
Srila Prabhupada did not stay with us a long time. His presence
took up a very short span of our life. You or I may not be able
to really fully comprehend the spiritual implications of this.
But were all smart enough to know! This is "BIG TIME MERCY." This
is cosmic connections of rare occurs in the scheme of the cosmos.
Perhaps we should become spiritually detached! Chant and be happy.
During all this never forget. Lord Caitanya's mercy can come upon
us at any time, any moment, in the twinkle of an eye, we shall
never die again!
The most powerful Guru to walk this planet has also made a deal
with us. Srila Prabhupada made a deal to take us home, Back to
Godhead. The deal did not specify that we would necessarily go
home in this lifetime. Srila Prabhupada agreed that if His disciples
chant 16 rounds every day and follow the four regulated principles
He would take us Back to Godhead. Any one who agreed to this contract
is stuck with this commitment like it or not. In this life or
the next we must fulfill our part of the bargain. You might argue
that unless you follow all your principles the Guru is not necessarily
bound to His contract. I understand this. This makes sense as
far as universal laws are concerned. This is morally right. Why
should any one be bound to a broken contract? The bigger the contract
the more binding it becomes. If you borrow money from a friend
or family and can't pay it back, they may say never mind, forget
it. If you borrow from the Mafia and don't pay it back they may
very well kill you. Different contracts have different repercussions.
Obviously there are contracts that can't be broken very easily.
I believe his contract with Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya
is such a contract.
As long as you are trying to serve Srila Prabhupada to the best
of your capacity, regardless of the size of capacity, Srila Prabhupada
will never forget you. Sincerity of heart is a top notch requirement
for Srila Prabhupada's mercy. In this age of Kali Yuga the state
of the heart is most important. The present age of Kali, our material
condition, time, place and circumstance is always taken into consideration
by Guru and Gauranga. Let us clearly understand that Srila Prabhupada
is no ordinary Guru. Lord Caitanya is a mercy incarnation of Krsna
for this age of Kali. Actually He is Radha and Krsna combined.
One day we will swim in the ocean of ecstasy that is being felt
between Radha and Krsna while encased in Lord Caitanya's body.
The laws of material nature dictate what we can't complete in
this life we get opportunity to work on that next life. The Bhagavad-Gita
proclaims this also. Life time after life time Srila Prabhupada
will give us opportunity to improve until perfection. Just as
the school system continues developing the students education
year after year until success is reached, we must continue with
our spiritual education. This is a stringent law of the cosmos
that is well under stood by the practising astrologer who has
read hundreds of horoscopes.
We are ever-progressing spiritually with each birth reconnecting
us to this movement. The first generation of devotees in the western
world planted a transcendental Banyan tree from Lord Caitanya's
seed of mercy. The beginning of this tree in North America was
Srila Prabhupada's western disciples. They gave birth to a 2nd
generation. During the growth of this 2nd generation the 1st generation
will all die eventually. During this 2nd generation a 3rd generation
is born . Many of us will recycle back into these 2nd, 3rd generation
of families. Then the 3rd generation gives birth to a 4th. Each
generation offering the 1st or previous generation opportunity
to take birth again for more purification and further service
to Lord Caitanya. These 3rd-4th and 5th generation of devotees
will start to give birth to more advanced devotees. We can expect
to see some very advanced devotees taking birth in generations
to come. At least some of these more advanced devotees will be
the result of 1st generation devotees reincarnating since this
movement began. Each incarnation becoming more purified, steadily
developing strong spiritual assets and qualities. This internal
process of transcendental recycling makes this movement a very
powerful and unstoppable force to contend with. In truth it cannot
In this way Srila Prabhupada's movement in the west is a self-regenerating
and self-sustaining spiritual force under the arrangement of Lord
Caitanya's Supreme potency. Lord Caitanya's movement can re-generate
itself internally while still working within the laws of material
nature, regardless of external appearances.
We need to do nothing except remain sincere and do the best we
can according to individual capacity. We need to pass through
time. Time is relative. One lifetime on earth is one blink of
Lord Brahma's eyelash. One mere life time is but a small frame
in Lord Caitanya's pasttime. In this way Lord Caitanya's mission
can not be stopped. It can only be played out in a variety of
forms and pastimes. There will be 5000 years to peak 5000 years
to decline. When Lord Caitanya's mission is complete and the whole
world is flooded in Love of Godhead we will meet in eternal kirtana
on Lord Caitanya's planet.
We must be very careful to not offend each other in this life
or the next. In this way we can feel assured that we will meet
on good terms during future transcendental adventures with Lord
Caitanya. Let us pray that we continue to get along with each
other and serve Srila Prabhupada well. Let us pray that we don't
commit the worst offense of all and embarrass Srila Prabhupada.
In this way we'll meet in a wild and ecstatic kirtana at the peak
of Lord Caitanya's prophecy. By Lord Caitanya's mercy please let
this be so!
Srila Prabhupada already knew that most of His disciple's would
not be able to maintain all the time. Yet Prabhupada initiated
thousands of living entities even though He knew that His body
would suffer due to sinful activities of His disciples. Only Lord
Caitanya's movement offers such a compassionate Guru. The available
mercy is unsurpassed in the history of our world.
Srila Prabhupada knew one thing for sure. He knew that He was
giving us the unbelievable mercy of Lord Caitanya. This special
mercy is justly deserved by His first generation of devotees,
let alone the mercy available to every one else. Those 1st generation
of devotees, rightly referred to as "His Miracles " helped break
ground and pioneer this mission in the western world. These devotees
are eligible for the transcendental medal of honor! They are in
a top notch position for Srila Prabhupada's mercy. If Srila Prabhupada
wants His devotees to go Back to Godhead then thats where they
will go regardless of our external vision. If Srila Prabhupada
wants His devotees to reincarnate and continue with Lord Caitanya's
mission, then it's already done. Srila Prabhupada has taken us
all on a mission for Lord Caitanya. He knew, now we know, that
this mission and all it's servants are on a path of no return.
It's a one way ticket prabhu. Like it or not, crawl, walk, run
or be dragged all the way. We are all have become part of Lord
Caitanya's pastimes. We will continue to be part of His pastimes
for many, many births to come. We all get opportunity to work
through our negative karma in service of this mission while still
working within the laws of material nature. We will all pay for
any wrong doings while in Srila Prabhupada's service, as well
as receive any credits for our sincere effort and service. Lord
Caitanya's justice and mercy will come to us all. If we try and
cheat, misuse or abuse our opportunity we are very foolish indeed.
This will result in personal chaos beyond your imagination.
Love of Godhead will come to us all regardless if we crawl, walk,
run, gallop or attain warp speed. Some will whine and whimp, some
shout, laugh or scream. Some times appearing like a bad dream,
funny dream, victorious one, drama, love and romance. All part
of Lord Caitanya's eternal dance.
Those first initiated disciples of Srila Prabhupada are working
through their difficulties under the special jurisdiction of Lord
Caitanya's pastimes. Due to lack of spiritual qualification and
purification there will be many casualties during the pioneering
stages of Lord Caitanya's movement. During war time the foot soldiers,
the grunts who pushed into enemy lines, always suffered the greatest
loss. These foot soldiers were given the metal of honor for their
immense courage and loss on the front lines. In essence each 1st
generation of devotees are eligible for Lord Caitanya's mercy
that breaks all boundaries and laws of the universe. Each devotee
is playing out his dream as he or she sees fit. Each devotee is
accountable for his actions and justly so. Yet each devotee has
one very basic and vital common denominator with all other devotees
of Srila Prabhupada. This common denominator is Lord Caitanya.
We are going to pay or receive for our actions in this movement
within the confines of Lord Caitanya's pastimes. Believe me this
pasttime of Lord Caitanya encompasses the whole world and all
it's laws. There are millions of roles in which to play out our
good and bad karma while still remaining under Lord Caitanya's
potency. Ultimately Lord Caitanya will dissolve all karma. There
is no question of failure! Only time! With time comes purification.
With purification come greater spiritual births and astrological
assets to go along with it. One day, within the next 5000 years,
you'll be a pure devotee and you can read in the archives revealing
your original identity during the time of Srila Prabhupada's appearance.
During the peak of my spiritual inspiration as a long time sankirtan
devotee I prayed to Srila Prabhupada that I keep reincarnating
into this movement. My desire is to be on the planet during the
peak years of Lord Caitanya's prophecy. For some reason beyond
my wildest imagination I've been caught in Lord Caitanya's net.
Now I want to see it to completion. Any thing less than this would
be a disappointment to me. I want to dance in a wild and ecstatic
kirtana 5000 years from now and bath in the glory of the results
Srila Prabhupada's mission. During this kirtana I hope to see
dancing in ecstasy each and every devotee that Srila Prabhupada
ever initiated. I hope to reunite with all my God brothers and
sisters on the kirtana dance floor supremely enjoying the most
amazing transcendental ecstatic kirtana to take place on this
planet. Srila Prabhupada will be there. Lord Caitanya and all
His entourage will be attending this "kirtana of all kirtanas".
I want to be present during the celebration of Lord Caitanya's
prophecy that the whole world be flooded in Love of Godhead. I
wait for this day with intense anticipation. Hopefully only 50
or so more life times to go.
I was born with Rahu in the 3rd house of adventures. My life has
been one adventure after another due to this Rahu placement. Many
of these adventures were way beyond my control as Rahu does these
things. Being caught up in Lord Caitanya's pasttime is the absolute
adventure of my life time. WE are all caught up in Lord Caitanya's
past times of flooding this world with Love of Godhead. Where
ever Lord Caitanya goes ... His entourage follows. Where ever
Lord Caitanya is you'll find Srila Prabhupada. Upon initiation
by Srila Prabhupada we became part of this fulfillment. WE are
duty bound to see this one to the end. Life times mean nothing.
All glories to Lord Caitanya's devotees.
