Be Very Strict; Sincerely Chant. Your Life is Saved, Your Next Life is Saved
- Prabhupāda 0762


Lecture on SB 6.1.30 -- Honolulu, May 29, 1976:

Prabhupāda: So our Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is just to educate man that you believe or not believe, it doesn't matter. There is God. There is the proprietor. But He is coming personally and He's saying, bhoktāraṁ yajña-tapasāṁ sarva-loka-maheśvaraṁ suhṛdaṁ sarva-bhūtānām (BG 5.29): "I am the proprietor, I am the enjoyer, and I am everyone's friend. If you want to be delivered from this miserable condition of material life, I am your best friend." Suhṛdaṁ sarva-bhūtānām. Kṛṣṇa. Because He's the father. Although He's the... Who can be better friend than the father? Hah? Father always wants to see that "My son is happy." That is natural. There is no begging, "Father, be kind upon me." No. Father is already kind. But if you revolt against the father, then you suffer. Similarly, God is our father, God is our friend, naturally, and He says that suhṛdaṁ sarva-bhūtānām, ahaṁ bīja-pradaḥ pitā (BG 14.4): "I am the seed-giving...," not only for the human being—all species of life, they are living entities; then according to your karma, therefore different dresses. Just like we have got in this meeting different dresses. So every one of us human beings; the dress may be different. That is another thing. Similarly, the living entity is part and parcel of God, but someone has become human beings, some has become cats, someone has become tree, some as insects, some as demigods, some as Brahmā, some as the ant—varieties. Because they wanted to become like that, and God has given him the chance, "All right. You want to become like this and enjoy life? All right, you become like this." So this is arrangement, that God is there, and He is everyone's father. He is everyone's friend. He is always ready. He's coming personally to canvas. He's so kind. Just hear, immediately.

niśamya mriyamāṇasya
mukhato hari-kīrtanam
bhartur nāma mahārāja
pārṣadāḥ sahasāpatan
(SB 6.1.30)

God has sent so many order carriers. "Just see if one is inclined to come to Me." Just see. So as soon as the order carriers—they're travelling everywhere—so "Here's a person, he's chanting 'Nārāyaṇa.' Come on. Take him." Just see. "Here is a person, he's chanting 'Nārāyaṇa.' Yes." Bhartur nāma mahārāja niśaṁya. "Oh, it is wonderful. He's chanting 'Nārāyaṇa.' " Immediately Yamadūtas wonder, "Why they are disturbing him? Stop!"

So take this chance of chanting harer nāma harer nāma harer nāma eva kevalam (CC Adi 17.21). You are always safe. The Yamadūtas, the order carriers of Yamaraja, will not be able to touch you. It is so efficient. So take this opportunity, chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa. I'm very glad that you are doing, but be very strict; sincerely chantyour life is saved, your next life is saved, everything is all right.

Thank you very much.

Devotees: Jaya.
