Nitya-lila-pravishta Om Vishnupad Shri Shrimad
What is truth? Truth is truth. Truth has no future, and no past. Truth is only in the present. The three tenses aren´t present in truth, only the present; always the present. The present has no future, it is eternal. Everything else you see that´s not the truth is material and transitory, existing only for a moment. Our bodies are born, and then grow up to be six or seven feet high. Our weight also increases. Then gradually we decay, and eventually will perish. However, this is not what anyone wants to believe. Our motto is: I want to be eternal.
There is a Creator, which has created the whole universe. It´s under His guidelines that we are able to sit here and talk. Well, who is that? He is the Truth. He is the most powerful One and cannot be understood by our puppy brains. Our knowledge is limited knowledge. Like our mental, intellectual and physical strengths, which are also limited.
Our ability to know Truth is limited by the capacity of our senses. We cannot understand the truth unless we have unconditionally surrendered. In the Bhagavat-Gita (18.66), it is written: sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja aham tvam sarva-papebhyo moksayisyami ma sucah “Give up all so-called religions taught by humans and just surrender to Me. Surrender to Me!” Whatever you think is good, do it immediately, don’t delay. Krishna will help you. If you are not able, Krishna will help you to know how to adopt and select the process. He will give the remedy and the blessings. There is always Krishna. In the beginning, in the middle and at the end there is Krishna. Without Krishna nothing can be done. This is the devotee’s conception and this is called Krishna consciousness.
