HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja live from ISKCON Ujjain, 11/10/2014

Today HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja gave a wonderful Srimad Bhagvatam Class at ISKCON Ujjain, which was broadcasted live on Mayapur.tv.

Following are the notes from HH Bhakti Charu Swami Guru Maharaja's class on SB 4.25.56 given today(11/10/2014) , 11th October 2014, at ISKCON Ujjain.
Two types of souls:
1. Liberated soul
2. Conditioned soul
Criterion to become liberated is surrender to Krishna
Independent souls cannot stay in spiritual world. Therefore they are sent to the material nature so as to act independently but then material nature functions over these souls according to guna and karma.
In goddness – one enjoys
In passion – one suffers
In ignorance – one becomes unconscious – bewildered, being intoxicated. Ex. Animals
Conditioned soul is he who acts independently.
Being in mode of goodness (like being obeidient) is close to spiritual life.
More one tries to enjoy (in mode of passion), the more Maya punishes.
Spirtual awareness spread in the world as :
Jare dekho tare kaho Krishna upadesh
Ex. Srila Prabhupada preached and those who heard from him, they told others
Ex. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu preaching to everyone coming in his way during his south India tour.
Krishna Consciousness cures us from material disease. How you accept it, it doesn’t matter. It will cure your disease.
Ex. No matter how to take medicine, medicine works. Like mother gives medicine in sweet.
Material nature is making you think that you can get anything by money.
But you can’t get spiritual needs fulfilled by money. Spiritual need is love. This knowledge is given by a Vaishnava. Ex. American boys left their homes and became hippies – in the search of happiness.
Krishna Consciousness takes you HIGH and you never come down. Whereas drugs may take you high but you have to come down again.
So, devotees in initial days had a slogan – “STAY HIGH FOREVER”
Immediate result of following four regulative principles is that one becomes:
· Physically healthy
· Mentally agile
· Intellectually alert

Through your materialistic endeavor have you became really happy?
You can’t be happy.
Endeavour to become happy in material world is like looking for water in mirage. Can you quench your thirst in mirage?
In order to be happy, you have to change your course – from material life to spiritual life.
Ex. A wise man helps the man searching water in mirage. He advises to go to real water and not to mirage. Then he even give some water from his bottle so that the latter person trust on him.
Spiritual life will give you ocean of water, where you can drown in water of joy.
Krishna is the ultimate lover. He will give us all love of which we are looking for.
Chant Hare Krishna. Follow four regulative principles. And remain in the association of devotees in ISKCON. Then your life will become successful and you will drown in the ocean of ecstasy.
Spiritual life is the matter of surrender. You may surrender to one devotee then he introduces you to all other devotee and thus surrender increases more and more.
If you want to act according to your nature then you make sure that you offer all results to Krishna. That is karma yoga.
If you just surrender to authority and devotees and just do what is told to you without considering your own likings, nature, etc. then it is devotional service.
To avoid offenses to devotees try to see their good qualities and genuinely appreciate them.

Notes of class given by HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja, 08-09-2014

On 08-09-2014 HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja took a question-answer session in gurgaon.
Some notes from the session:

Que- How to break the cycle of birth and death?
Ans- firstly proper understanding is required, What is death?- soul's departure from body and birth is soul's acceptance of new body; and duration from birth and death is lifetime.  
-We turned our face from lord, revolted with him, but he always stay with us. 
-Example: A child want to play with the friends, father created a park and takes him there, child plays with his friends, father sits there and watch his child, when it becomes dark, all his friends go to their houses, the child being fearful calls out his father, his father comes there and takes him away. 
-Actually we are those children, father created this field , here we are playing completely, we have forgotten him, sometimes in fear we call his name, there he comes.

Que.: While preaching how to balance our state of consciousness to do as a service?
Ans- KC gives us ultimate benefit to the ultimate problem that is death. Nobody wants to die, KC will make you conquer death. 
-Prabhupada gave Music, Prasad and love to the people in US. 
-Consider it like that preaching is for my own purification and pray to krishna and offer all credit to Srila Prabhupada who is the actually creaditable. 

"When you can identify the mistake then only you can rectify the mistake " 

Que.: Sometimes it happens that I have to force myself to chant and read SP books, it doesnt comes automatically.
Ans- Devotional service can be practised in association of devotees.

Que.: How can one give up attachments?
Ans- Spiritual attachment is good but not the material attachment. 
-By getting the higher taste lower taste can be given up  
-By getting the higher taste of krsna prasad you don't think of food.

Que.:  we become angry, do wrong with others.
Ans- Paramatma is watching us.
-gets carried away by your emotions.
-If someone is watching you, uou'll stop. Krishna is always watching you.
-Its a matter of being aware. Always remember that someone is watching you.

Que.: How to reduce offence commiting  tendency.
Ans- Ultimate solution is Krishna Consciousness. We are doing it from lives and lives. It is good that you are realising this thing.
- ultimately its a matter of love, attachment wont come artificially. Because of our attachments and impurity, we are not developing love for krishna.
- We are spiritually diseased and materially immature.


- Mind is the receptical of senses. mind is the basis through which we connects to lord.
-Mind is taking us away from krsna, think of krsna from mind.
