New Prabhupada Hindi Classes — High Quality MP3s

CT77-017We have about seventy recordings of Srila Prabhupada preaching in Hindi which have never been presented nicely in MP3 format. Which means many Hindi-speaking people are unaware that we have so many wonderful recordings of Srila Prabhupada preaching in Hindi.

Many of them were released in the Prabhupada MP3 set but the Hindi recordings were presented in an unorganized and unsystematic way and in poor quality audio. Now we have organized them properly and tagged them with the proper MP3 tags so they will play nicely on iPods and other portable players. And the sound quality is very nice. So if you know Hindi yourself or if you know anyone else who understands Hindi these Prabhupada Hindi recordings will be very enlivening for them to hear.

You can listen to and download them at:

http://krishna.tv/index.php?jz_path=Hindi+Lectures+and+Conversations&ext.html

We have discovered 10 completely new Prabhupada Hindi recordings and they are just labeled as “New Hindi Class.” So I would very much appreciate it if some Hindi speaking person could listen to these new classes and let me know what each one of them actually is so we can properly label the MP3 files.

    I am very sorry I could not find the verse. I went through the lecture 4-5 times but could not find it, possibly because it was incomplete lecture. However, we can get to know that the location is Vrindavan and the year is 1975/76.

    Thus by Srila Prabhupada’s mercy and by the grace of Krishna we have been successful in deciphering most of the Hindi classes. I have enjoyed doing this service and have to admit that I never knew that service was so enjoyable. In school, whenever I render service, all I get is only scoldings and a headache. Here I got immense peace and satisfaction as well a wonderful opportunity to listen to SP’s transcendental lectures.(inspite of many difficulties and maya’s obstacles)

    I have only one request. In future if there is anything I can do to serve Srila Prabhupada, please tell me, whether it is Hindi or English. For the time being I may be busy in some “”important”” exams, but as SP said, nothing is more important than service to spiritual master and Sri Krishna.

    Hare Krishna. All Glories To Srila Prabhupada.

    • Hare Krishna Divine

      Thank you very much for this wonderful service.

      I will update the names of the classes with this new information.

      Yes. It is always very blissful, being engaged in the service of Srila Prabhupada and Krishna. So we have to continue and increase our service. That is the main thing. Krishna consciousness is called also ‘devotional service’. So actually Krishna consciousness means engaging all our energies in the service of Krishna under the direction of the bona fide spiritual master. So without practical devotional service actually there is no meaning to “Krishna consciousness”.

      So it is very wonderful.

      All glories to your service.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    Hare Krishna Guruji,

    In this post I want to talk about two people close to me.

    1. Recently, one friend of mine asked me about what SB tells about the human body. My misfortune is that from what I have read till now, I only know that our body is a ‘city of nine gates’
    (Puranjana) and we have gross and subtle body(and soul) and from where we can be born(egg,sweat etc). Somehow I want to make him interested in SB as he belongs to innocent category and asks about SB quite often(scientific doubts). I know very little and lack the capability to explain anything spiritual. Therefore, I humbly request you to tell about the body and at the same time how to somehow make him read the SB pdf found in your website.

    2. Someone very close to me(i.e my sis) on my request read the entire BG in one and half months and is reading SB. She is telling that she is not feeling very interested as she was before. Guruji, how shall I keep her interested? Frankly speaking, I have felt a bit of ecstasy of chanting and reading(1%) but I am too fallen and incapable to make her feel how beautiful KC is. Neither are there any Sankirtan parties which can immediately attract people towards KC like during Srila Prabhupada’s times. What should I do??????

    Later in the day, I would send a summary of the verses on which each Hindi class is based.

    Eagerly waiting for your reply.
    Hare Krishna.AGTSP

    • Hare Krishna Divine

      The way you can help others become Krishna conscious is by becoming more Krishna conscious yourself. The more you read Srila Prabhupada’s books and listen to his classes automatically you will begin to know so much more about Krishna consciousness and automatically you will find that you know the right answers to your friends questions.

      So do not worry. Just keep on reading and chanting Hare Krishna yourself and you will find that all the answers to these questions are in Srila Prabhupada’s books.

      As far as the material body the main point to understand is that we are not the material body. We are the spirit soul who is within and controlling the material body in the same way that there is a driver in a motor car controlling and directing the car. So as the motor car is moving under the direction and control of the driver, similarly, these material bodies are moving and being controlled by the spirit souls, the individual living entities who are within the material bodies and who are driving the material bodies around…

      So the material body is just a vehicle and is not very important. As the motor car has no purpose without the driver to control and direct it, similarly the material body has no purpose except to be driven by the spirit soul.

      So we should not be very concerned about the material body. We need to maintain the material body in good health as far as possible, as we have to maintain the motor car by changing the oil and supplying it with petrol, but we have to remember that we are not the material body, we are the driver of the material body, and as the petrol and oil are not enjoyable by the driver of the car, they are not the food for the driver of the car, the objects that satisfy the senses of our material body are no more our food than the petrol is the food of the driver of the car. The food of the car is petrol but the food of the driver of the car is different.

      So we have to realize this. That we have misidendified ourselves with our material bodies. And this misidentification of the body as the self is the cause of all of our problems in the material world. I am thinking “I am an Australian,” “I am a man,” etc. But actually that is my body. I am actually something completely different. I am the spirit soul who is driving this material body, and my needs, the spirit soul’s needs are completely different from the needs of my material body.

      So we have to realize this point, that I am not the material body, I am the spirit soul. And we should be therefore more interested in inquiring about the nature of the spirit soul and the needs of the spirit soul. We know what are the needs of the material body and we have to minimize these as far as possible while still maintaining the material body in good health so we can utilize it to render service to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna.

      But we are not aware of the nature of and the needs of the spirit soul. This is the really important question…

      As far as your sister loosing a bit of interest while reading Srimad-Bhagavatam, this is quite natural. Actually Srimad-Bhagavatam is completely spiritual but because we are contaminated by the material disease, thinking that we are the material body, in this diseased condition we can not fully appreciate the transcendental knowledge and spiritual bliss that is present in Srila Prabhupada’s books and in the Hare Krishna maha mantra. This is a very important point for us neophyte devotees to understand. Srila Prabhupada explains this situation with the analogy of a man with the jaundice disease. In this disease the patient looses his taste for sweet things. Actually when a jaundice patient tastes some sweet thing it tastes bitter to him and he does not like to eat it because it tastes bitter. But actually the sweet thing is not bitter, it only tastes bitter to the jaundice patient because of his disease. So there is incredible transcendental bliss in Srila Prabhupada’s books and in the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, but we can not taste that bliss in the beginning, even it sometimes seems to be distasteful, like the sugar tastes bitter to a jaundice patent. But for the jaundice patient the only cure for his disease is for him to take the sweet things. So you see the situation. The sweet things of course are sweet but due to the disease the jaundice patient tastes sweet things as bitter and does not like to eat them. But eating these sweet things is the only way that his disease can be cured. So you see the jaundice patient has to understand this, and he has to eat the sweet things, even though they taste bitter to him, knowing that they are not really bitter, knowing that they only seem to be bitter to him because of his disease, and knowing that eating these sweet things is the only cure to his jaundice disease.

      So we are in the material world and we have a very bad case of the material disease of misidentifying our selves with our bodies and the only cure for this disease is Krishna consciousness, reading Srila Prabhupada’s books, chanting Hare Krishna, hearing Srila Prabhupada’s classes, etc. But, like the jaundice patient, because of our material disease, we have no taste for chanting Hare Krishna, and we have no taste for reading Srila Prabhupada’s books. There is great transcendental ecstasy in the Hare Krishna mantra, but we can not taste it because of our material disease, actually sometimes because of our material disease the Hare Krishna mantra can seem to be not very nice. But we have to know that the Hare Krishna mantra is full of all transcendental potencies and the only reason we can not perceive that is becasue we have an acute case of the material disease of misidentifying our selves with our bodies… And we have to know it for sure that the only cure for the material disease is chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books.

      So this point is very, very important for anyone who wants to make advancement in spiritual life to understand. Because of our material disease we can not experience the real transcendental nature of the Hare Krishna mantra and Srila Prabhupada’s books. But the only cure to the material disease is chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books….

      So it is like that. We have to keep chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books even if we are not feeling any transcendental bliss, even if we have no attachment at all. Because this Hare Krishna mantra is the cure for our material disease. If we actually keep chanting Hare Krishna, even if we have no taste at all for chanting Hare Krishna, that chanting will purify our hearts and reduce and ultimately completely cure the material disease. And to the extent that we are free from the material disease we will be able to appreciate the true transcendental nature of Krishna and His holy names…

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

  4. Divine says:

    I had gone through new Hindi class 9/10.

    It is based on the verse:

    namnam akari bahudha nija-sarva-shaktis
     tatrarpita niyamitah smarane na kalah
    etadrishi tava kripa bhagavan mamapi
     durdaivam idrisham ihajani nanuragah

    Padyavali Text 31(by Rupa Goswami)

    Actually I could not find this verse in prabhupadabooks.com . I got it by browsing in Google. Could you just check whether it is missing or whether Srila Prabhupada never spoke about it?

    Some other verses are

    brahma bhuta prasannatma na socati na kankshati samah sarvesu bhuteshu

    nityam bhagvata seva

    pandita sama darshina
    bramha bhuyaya kalpate
    brahma-bhūyāya kalpate

    sri vigrahara dhana nityanana

    yathā kāñcanatāṁ yāti
    kāṁsyaṁ rasa-vidhānataḥ
    tathā dīkṣā-vidhānena
    dvijatvaṁ jāyate nṛṇām

    tat-prayāso na kartavyo
    yata āyur-vyayaḥ param
    na tathā vindate kṣemaṁ
    mukunda-caraṇāmbujam
    ānanda-cin-maya-rasa

    So, except new Hindi class 5, almost all others have been deciphered.

      That verse namnam akari… is in PrabhupadaBooks.com, it is a verse from Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s Siksastakam. Lord Caitanya, although He was a great scholar, only wrote these eight verses of Siksastakam, in these eight verses He has packed the essence of His mission and the essence of Krishna consciousness. They are very important verses.

      This verse is in PrabhupadaBooks.com in various places but one place is:

    I went through new Hindi class 4.

    The main verse is
    sa vai puṁsāṁ paro dharma
    yato bhaktir adhokṣaje
    ahaituky apratihatā
    yayātmā suprasīdati

    The supreme occupation [dharma] for all humanity is that by which men can attain to loving devotional service unto the transcendent Lord. Such devotional service must be unmotivated and uninterrupted to completely satisfy the self.(SB 1.2.6)

    Other verses used are

    Also Srila Prabhupada stresses on controlling the tongue – sarira abidya jal……………………..Moreover He said that devotees always worried about upliftment of non devotees.(nivritti dharma is followed by devotees, whereas others follow pravritti dharma)

    By Krishna’s mercy the task is nearing completion.

  6. Divine says:

    Hare Krishna Guruji,

    I also went through new hindi class 1. The lecture is on the verse:

    sarvātmanā mahi gṛṇāmi yathā manīṣam
    nīco ’jayā guṇa-visargam anupraviṣṭaḥ
    pūyeta yena hi pumān anuvarṇitena

    Therefore, although I was born in a demoniac family, I may without a doubt offer prayers to the Lord with full endeavor, as far as my intelligence allows. Anyone who has been forced by ignorance to enter the material world may be purified of material life if he offers prayers to the Lord and hears the Lord’s glories.(SB 7.9.12)

    Some other verses used are:
    kṛṣṇa-bhakta–niṣkāma, ataeva ‘śānta’ bhukti-mukti-siddhi-kāmī–sakali ‘aśānta ‘( Madhya 19.149), ahaṁ mameti , sravanam kirtanam visnoh, etc

    In this lecture, Srila Prabhupada once again focuses on Bhakti-yoga. In one part, He talks about karmis. He says that actually everything belongs to Krishna and the only competition between them is who steals more from Krishna! If one steals 2 houses, the other tries to steal 10 houses !!!!!!!!!!

    Srila Prabhupada’s lectures are so beautiful, hillarious and at the same time so deep that anyone would fall in love with such lectures.
    ALL GLORIES TO SUCH A GREAT PERSON AS HIS DIVINE GRACE A C BHAKTIVEDANATA SWAMI PRABHUPADA

  7. Divine says:

    I had gone through the new Hindi class 7 before. The verse it is based on is

    sukham aindriyakaṁ daityā
    deha-yogena dehinām
    sarvatra labhyate daivād
    yathā duḥkham ayatnataḥ

    Prahlāda Mahārāja continued: My dear friends born of demoniac families, the happiness perceived with reference to the sense objects by contact with the body can be obtained in any form of life, according to one’s past fruitive activities. Such happiness is automatically obtained without endeavor, just as we obtain distress.

    Some other verses are nūnaṁ pramattaḥ kurute vikarma yad indriya-prītaya āpṛṇoti, mayy āsakta-manāḥ pārtha, sravanam kirtanam vishnoh,etc

    The essence of the lecture is that we should not work too hard to maintain our body. On the contrary we should save time and engage in Krishna consciousness.

    ——————————————–
    After listening to the lecture I am wondering that is it ok that I am a student and stay at home. Actually, I am able to chant 16 rounds and read SP books almost everyday. However, during days of exam I am only able to chant 16 rounds and not able to read the books. Of course, the only thing left is honouring Krishna prasadam I hope soon I would make some arrangement for that.
    At the end of lecture Srila Prabhupada says that Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said that there is no need to change one’s position. So anyway I would love to have conformation on that?

    Hope to give updates on the remaining 3-4 as soon as possible.

    • Hare Krishna Divine

      Very nice to hear from you and your realizations.

      Yes. It is best to make an arrangement when in our lives we have plenty of time for chanting Hare Krishna, reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and serving Krishna. Our life has to be centered around serving Srila Prabhupada and Krishna. That is Krishna consciousness. And Lord Caitanya many times advised his followers to just stay where they were and practice Krishna consciousness in their current situation. Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu traveled all over India and everywhere He went many people wanted to join Him, travel with Him, follow Him, etc, but almost always He told them not to, but instead instructed them to remain where they are and become Krishna conscious there and then teach Krishna consciousness to the people in the place where they are. He instructed them to stay where they are and become Krishna consciousness and then become the guru for that place.

      So there is no need to change our situation in life. We can become Krishna consciousness wherever we find ourselves.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    Hare Krishna Guruji,

    Maya had trapped me for the last two weeks in some mundane examination but now I am free. I went through new Hindi class 5 and found it to be very nice. However, Srila Prabhupada has spoken so many verses that I am confused on which exact verse He is talking abou t!!!!.
    Some of the verses are:

    yasyāsti bhaktir bhagavaty akiñcanā
    sarvair guṇais tatra samāsate surāḥ
    harāv abhaktasya kuto mahad-guṇā
    mano-rathenāsati dhāvato bahiḥBhāg
    . 5.18.12)

    eṣāṁ tvanta-gataṁ pāpaṁ janānāṁ puṇya-karmaṇām
    te dvandva-moha-nirmuktā bhajante māṁ dṛḍha-vratāḥ 
    Bg 6.45

    sarvātma-snapanaṁ paraṁ vijayate śrī-kṛṣṇa-saṅkīrtanam
    [Cc. Antya 20.12]

    mayy āsakta-manāḥ pārtha
    yogaṁ yuñjan mad-āśrayaḥ

    manā bhava mad-bhakto mad-yājī māṁ namaskuru

    harer nāma harer nāma harer nāmaiva kevalam
    kalau nāsty eva nāsty eva nāsty eva gatir anyathā. 
    [Cc. Ādi 17.21]

    daivī hy eṣā guṇa-mayī
    mama māyā duratyayā
    mām eva ye prapadyante
    māyām etāṁ taranti te 
    Bg 7.14

    Therefore I am not sure about exact verse. Another important point is that Srila Prabhupada mentions that He is 78 years old. Also, the audio recording is not complete.

    Hope to give updates on the remaining 4-5 as soon as possible.

    Hare Krishna. AGTSP

    • Hare Krishna Divine

      I am very happy you are free from the exams now.

      If you are confused do not worry. Just chant Hare Krishna and listen to the class again and it will become less confusing. Gradually it will become completely clear. The nature of Krishna consciousness is that we are currently covered by maya and because we are covered by maya we can not understand Krishna conscious very clearly. But the actual process of hearing from a pure devotee of Krishna like Srila Prabhupada is a very effective way to remove this covering of maya. So simply the process of hearing Srila Prabhupada is very powerful and that purification will happen even if you can not understand what Srila Prabhupada is saying, and as a result of that purification the next time you hear from Srila Prabhupada you will understand it more clearly… That is how it works. So just keep on hearing and if you do not understand it then hear it again…

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    Srila Prabhupada speaks this in literally every Hindi class(new). By Krishna’s mercy and search button in prahupadabooks.com I found what the actual verse is

    śrī-bhagavān uvāca
    mayy āsakta-manāḥ pārtha
    yogaṁ yuñjan mad-āśrayaḥ

    “Now hear, O son of Pṛthā [Arjuna], how by practicing yoga in full consciousness of Me, with mind attached to Me, you can know Me in full, free from doubt.”(Bg 7.1).

    Thus it is a very important verse,as you said.

    Anyway i heard new Hindi class 7. Srila Prabhupada talks about karmis and their mentality of sense enjoyment 24 hours a day, whereas they would not even spend a single millisecond for Krishna consciousness, citing that they are too busy. Infact the karmis by whom I am always surrounded exactly fit the description given by Srila Prabhupada. I would try to find the exact verse on which Srila Prabhupada is speaking about as soon as possible.

    Kindly bless me so that I get the determination and strength to face the many obstacles in the path of Krishna consciousness.

    A few doubts in SB.
    1. Is Dhruva loka eternal or is it dissolved during complete dissolution?

    2. I read in SB 4.22 that Ravana’s kingdom was in Brazil.However Lord Rama lived in Ayodhya and he also built a bridge from Ayodhya to Lanka, So how is it possilbe that Ravan lived in Brazil?

    Hare Krishna. AGTSP.

    • Hare Krishna Divine

      Dhruva loka is eternal and it is not dissolved during a complete devastation.

      There are different descriptions and sometimes it appears to us, in our conditioned state, that there are contradictions in the scriptures. But there are not contradictions in the scriptures, it is simply our inability to realize the subject matter being described in the scriptures. As we advance more in spiritual life we will be able to understand these things more deeply. But in our neophyte condition we can not expect that with our small conditioned brains we have the capacity to intellectually understand and comprehend all the details of everything that is described in Srimad-Bhagavatam.

      Some spiritual things are very difficult for us to understand and comprehend because in our material conditioned existence we have not got the spritual experiences that would allow us to understand these things. We are in the material world, so we project all our material misconceptions onto Krishna and onto everything we read in the Srimad-Bhagavatam so we see apparent contradictions.

      So the thing is to actually have faith in Srila Prabhupada, to have faith in the Srimad-Bhagavatam and to hear submissively Srila Prabhupada and the Bhagavatam and to have faith that what you are hearing is correct but to also realize that our brains and powers of comprehending are tiny and we can not expect to immediately comprehend everything. That is our inability, that is not contradictions in the sastras.

      So you need to concentrate on hearing everything submissively. It is that hearing process that is powerful. Krishna consciousness is achieved through hearing and chanting. So you have to actually chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day, we have to actually follow the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication] and we have to submissively hear from Srila Prabhupada by hearing his lectures and reading his books. If we actually surrender to all of these things gradually all the dirty things will be cleared away from our hearts and we will be able to see Krishna ultimately…

      Anyhow as far as Ravana the understanding is that Ravana had a subway, a tunnel from Lanka to Brazil and he got the gold which he used to build his golden palace in Lanka from Brazil. So Ravana was a powerful demon. He could travel by a subway between Lanka and Brazil so I am sure that Ravana also had some grand palaces on the Brazil side as well as on the Lanka side.

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Sri Krishna on this auspicious day of Vaikuntha Ekadashi.

    After going through some of these new classes I found that:
    new Hindi Class 8(first) +new Hindi class 6(next) = Hindi Bg 7.2 Vrindavan 1973-10-30

    Following are the timings when the same words are repeated
    new Hindi Class 8 Hindi Bg 7.2 Vrindavan 1973-10-30
    5:00(there is Jaya Radha Madhava) 0:25(there is no Jaya Radha Madhava)

    15:44 10:08
    17:37 11:48

    new Hindi class 6 Hindi Bg 7.2 Vrindavan 1973-10-30
    0:05 12:23
    20:57 31:05

    Everything looks fine but there is a slight variation between the time gaps after which the same word is said. For example in new Hindi class 6, a particular word comes after a gap of 20 min 52 sec. However the time gap between the same two phrases of words in “Hindi Bg 7.2 Vrindavan 1973-10-30 ” is less than 19 min.

    In other words in either of the audio recordings, there may either be some addition or some subtraction. Therefore, it is my humble request that you look into whether either of the videos and somehow check if there is some addition or subtraction. It may also be possible that I am wrong, I am not sure.

    I will try to get some idea of the other recordings as soon as possible. Kindly lend me your further guidance so that I can do some service to Srila Prabhupada. By the way Srila Prabhupada’s Hindi lectures are superb!!!!!

    Hare Krishna. AGTSP.

      It is very nice you are doing this service Divine.

      Realistically I can not speak or read Hindi so I can not do anything with it and can not help you very much with it. But in the beginning some things will seem a little confusing but as you hear the Hindi classes more and more everything will become very clear and you will gradually be able to see everything clearly and understand everything very well. That is the way Krishna consciousness works. Things appear somewhat cloudy and indistinct in the beginning but as we continue serving Srila Prabhupada and Krishna and continue chanting Hare Krishna the clouds clear away and we can see everything nicely.

      So just keep on working on the Hindi tapes and I guarantee that everything will become clear to you soon. Let me know how you are progressing with this.

      All glories to your service.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    I went through new Hindi class 2. It is also on SB 1.2.6 verse

    sa vai puṁsāṁ paro dharma
    yato bhaktir adhokṣaje
    ahaituky apratihatā
    yayātmā suprasīdati

    However I later checked with one lecture on the same verse and found that the first 30 min 15 sec of ” SB 1.2.6 Calcutta 1975-03-21.mp3 ” corresponds with new Hindi class 2.
    Thus New Hindi Class 2.mp3 is a repetion of Hindi ” SB 1.2.6 Calcutta 1975-03-21.mp3 ” .

    As you said, this class(class 2) is a repeated one.

    I am also waiting for a reply on the doubt I had asked in the previous post about the verse
    ” mayyah sattanamm asvasam yogam ninyanamalah “(in which book?)

    Hare Krishna. AGTSP

  13. Divine says:

    Guruji,

    ” mayyah sattanamm asvasam yogam ninyanamalah ”

    Srila Prabhupada has spoken this verse twice, once in new class 8 and once in new Hindi class 5. Could you tell me from which book this verse appears as I was unable to find the source of this verse?(The spelling or words may not be exactly same but more or less similar)

    After knowing the source, I may be able to tell on which book Srila Prabhupada is speaking.

    Anyway, in new Hindi class 8 Srila Prabhupada talks about Bhakti-Yoga and how to make progress in it(eg.sadhu-sanga) and what are the sins we should avoid.

    Eagerly waiting for your reply.

  14. Divine says:

    have a lot to tell about new hindi class 3.

    New Hindi class 3 is on SB 1.2.6 where Srila Prabhupada talks about parodharm. However I later checked with one lecture on the same verse and found that 11:53 of this lecture corresponds with the last 11 mins 53 sec of the lecture “”Hindi SB 1.2.6 Calcutta 1975-03-21.mp3 “”.
    So as you have said this class is a repeated one.

    However we must note that after 11:53 of class 3, Srila Prabhupada gives another lecture for 4 min 17 sec. So somehow the ending part of “”Hindi SB 1.2.6 Calcutta 1975-03-21.mp3 “” has been clubbed with another lecture where Srila Prabhupada talks about impersonalism and compares it with sunglobe, sunshine, sunrays,etc. Unfortunately, as the lecture is very short, it is hard to trace which verse Srila Prabhupada is exactly talking about. But it is for sure that the topic is impersonalism.

    I will try to find what the remaining lectures are about as soon as possible. Kindly give me further instructions so that I can serve Srila Prabhupada as much as possible though the fact is that howmuchever service I do, I will never reach the level of service you have done.

    Hare Krishna. AGTSP

    • Hare Krishna Divine

      It is very good news. Try and work out all these things with Srila Prabhupada’s Hindi lectures so we can sort them out.

      Anyone can serve Krishna, anyone can become a ‘great’ devotee. But ‘great devotee’ means actually great servant. No real great devotee thinks he is a great devotee. You know, it is a very subtle thing. But any one of us can choose to surrender to Srila Prabhupada and follow his instructions and if we do this we will become pure devotees of Krishna and Krishna will guide us what to do, how we can serve Him.

      So I have not done any great service. Only occasionally, in between the times I am in maya, I surrender to Srila Prabhupada and serve him to my best ability. So I have experienced Krishna guiding me and know how it works. When we really surrender to Srila Prabhupada then Krishna directly guides us what we should do to please Him. Of course then if we go back to serving maya we get covered again and forget everything.

      So the idea is to become constantly engaged in serving Srila Prabhupada and Krishna 24 hours a day. Anyone can do this, and in this way anyone can become a pure devotee of Krishna and do wonderful service for Srila Prabhupada and Krishna.

    I have made an attempt to translate New Hindi Class 3 so that you can get an idea of what Srila Prabhupada is speaking.Translation for first 2:50 mins. After reading this, kindly instruct me on what I should do further. 

    Note: I have left blanks at places where I was unable to translate. 

    New Hindi class 3 Translation

    Curious.intelligent,——–,———, these people worship the Lord, go to the lord to attain something such people have been called in the shastras (sanskrit verse containing sukrutin) . They go to the Lord and ask something which is their foolishness even then it is (). And one who never approaches the Lord, he is called duskritin. That is called sukritin.
    But one never approaches the Lord for any reason, he is called
    duskritin. Mahapaapi(very sinful).Duskritin.Kriti means one who does
    good work. Kriti means medha—-, that is intelligent. One who uses his
    knowledge for nefarious/sinful purposes, he is called duskritin. And
    one who uses his intelligence for good/pious purpose, he is called
    sukritin. Whenever sukritin approaches the Lord to ask something,
    eventhough he is not a pure devotee, he is called sukriti (baan). And
    one who never approaches the Lord ,one who never believes in God, he
    is called duskritin .(sanskrit verse containing the word
    mudhah). So a duskritin has also been given another name- mudhah.
    Mudhah means ass/donkey.(sanskrit verse containing the word mudhah
    and naradham) So he is also called naradham(meaning of naradham)————————– (sanskrit verse) which means one
    whose knowledge has been destroyed by maya.(san verse)So if he want
    to attain happiness, (san verse)if we want to make the soul happy,
    than we have to follow this (instruction). And what is it? It is
    parodharm. Not materialism. Not voidism.Not——- It is bhagvata
    dharm.— God is there, God is master, we are His servants, and how He
    has ordered us, that we should follow. This is called dharm. Other
    than this, all that we consider dharm is not dharm, it is atheism.
    Nothing else. Shastras have said that(Sans verse dharma projita hoitava )

      Sorry for the delay in answering you on this.

      Actually what we need is not a translation but we need to identify what is the book and the verse that Srila Prabhupada is speaking from.

      I think from what you have written this sounds like it may be a Bhagavad-gita class on that verse that says there are four types of people who surrender to Krishna, catur viddha bhajanti mam jnana sukritino arjuna… I think you can locate this verse in the Gita and let me know. So what I would suggest is you please listen to all of the Prabhupada Hindi lectures and read Srila Prabhupada’s books in English and hear his English classes also and gradually you will become familiar with the verses Srila Prabhupada is speaking on and you will be able to identify exactly what these classes are.

      Ideally we want to know what it is that Srila Prabhupada is preaching on, what book and verse, and the location and date he is giving the class. It is probably not possible to know the location and date by listening to the class in most cases, also it would be nice to have a single sentence summary of the class to use as the title.

      So if you try for this it would be very good. We do not actually need English translations of the Hindi classes at this point, we just need to accurately identify what they are. You could also check that the new classes are not duplicates of other Hindi classes that we already have.

      Of course the main thing is that you submissively hear all these Hindi classes from Srila Prabhupada and try to understand what Srila Prabhupada is preaching and try to apply his teachings in your life.

      Thank you very much. All glories to your service.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna."I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can.That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental!That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
