We have to learn to say "Yes" to Kṛṣṇa or His representative. Then you will be all right. If you say "No," then it is māyā. But you have got the liberty to say "Yes" or "No." (indistinct) If we say "No," then it is our misfortune. If we say "Yes," it is our fortune.


Prabhupāda: . . . just like Arjuna said: "Yes." In the beginning he said: "No," then after learning Bhagavad-gītā he said: "Yes." So we have to learn to say: "Yes" to Kṛṣṇa or His representative. Then you will be all right. If you say: "No," then it is māyā. But you have got the liberty to say: "Yes" or "No." . . . (indistinct) . . . if we say: "No," then it is our misfortune. If we say: "Yes," it is our fortune.

Icchā-dveṣa. What is that verse? Sarge yānti parantapa. You have got icchā and dveṣa—two things there. Icchā means either you have desire for sense gratification or you can desire to serve Kṛṣṇa. And dveṣa means averse. You may not like to serve Kṛṣṇa, or you may not like to serve māyā.

icchā-dveṣa-samutthena
sarge yānti parantapa
(BG 7.27)

So we have come here to this material world by two propensities, icchā and dveṣa. Icchā, we wanted to enjoy this material world; and dveṣa, we try to avoid Kṛṣṇa. You see?
