Kapila-Devahuti Samvad Volume-3 | Rajesh Haldar

Respected Devotees, PAMHO! Today this Volume-3 is going to be the last part of Kapila-Devahuti Samvad of Srimad Bhagwatam. Devotees, who haven’t yet read the last 2 volumes, for them here goes the links as follows—

The Kapila-Devahuti Samvad Volume-1

The Kapila-Devahuti Samvad Volume-2

Q: Mata Devahuti asked Lord Kapila to explain about the risks involved in the process of repeated Birth & Death cycle so that people can start following the path of devotion after understanding the intolerable pain that he goes through during the entire life cycle.

Ans: Then the merciful Lord Kapila replied as – there are 8.4 millions of species of life which is also known as 84 Lakhs Yonis, according to the past karma, each soul enters into a specific types of Yoni or body, but among those, the Human form of Life is most precious as one can follow the Bhaktimarg (path of devotion) only in the form of human body, still every living beings do feel happy in whatever form of the body that they have got. This is because of the illusory power of God which is known as Maya Shakti. Though, a pig survives on stool and lives an inferior quality of life, still he is happy with that. A dog which tries hard to break through a bone & fails, eventually blood comes out from his own teeth, but he thinks that this is the juice, which is coming out of the bone, so he cheers for that.

Repeated Birth and Death

Similarly, humans too are going through the same situation in life, but as their eyes are covered with the dust of Illusion, so they have gone blind and are wasting their precious life by running after the Maya. Though, people have got a temporary material body, temporary society, temporary relation, yet they are deeply engrossed in it & as a result they are experiencing different types of pains and year after year, taking birth and dyeing again through different forms of material body. Yet, people are happy. They easily get fascinated to see the smiley faces of their wife or easily fall in love with the childish words, pronounced by their children. The head of a family goes through a lot of troubles to run his family, sometimes he also commits sins just to satisfy his family and relatives. And, at the end of his life, when he becomes incapable to earn any further, then he lives the life of an aged bull in his own family where no one takes care of him. Yet, the rascal doesn’t get displeased with his family life, rather his addiction towards family increases further with the age. Other family members’ starts disrespecting him, he loses his charming look because of age factor, and then he starts waiting for his death. Gradually, he loses appetites, because of internal air pressure his eyes seem to come out, because of cough his voice gets choked, he finds it difficult to breath even. A typical sound comes out of his throat. When, during his young age people told him to chant the Hari name, then he had no time for that, but now, even if he will try to pronounce the Hari name, he won’t succeed as his material body won’t allow him to do that. He remains completely in bed ridden condition, he feels helpless, even can’t convey his messages to his near and dear ones. He accepts the death in a very pathetic condition. During death, he urinates & poops on bed upon seeing the scary look of messengers of Lord Yam. And during that moment no one tries to rescue him, rather they simply keep on crying. The messengers first ties his throat with hard binding, then covers his subtle body and drags it roughly to take him to the hell for punishing him hard. No way he can escape the punishment in hell; no one will give him company during his final journey. Though he did a lot for his friends & families including committing sins too to make them happy, yet no one will come to see him in suffered condition. After spending a long time in hell when he gets a chance to come on this earth, then again he makes family and friends & again goes through the same cycle of birth & death.

Though I am simply narrating what Sage Kapila told to her mother Devahuti, yet I am feeling sad for those who are not ready to chant the Hari Naam & get back to his real adobe at Baikuntha. 🙁

Q: After hearing such painful explanation Mata Devahuti asked Lord Kapila – this world is nothing but the house of all types of sufferings, but I think, a person stays happy & fearless only when he is within the womb of his mother, isn’t it?

Ans: After hearing this Lord Kapila smiled and said NO. Rather, mother’s womb is also a place where the child goes through intolerable conditions. While writing this suddenly I have remembered about a recent quote which I wrote in “My Quotes” section.

rajesh haldar quotes on repeated birth and death

Repeated Birth & Death Quote

Anyways, coming back to the point, Lord Kapila then started explaining Mata Devahuti regarding the conditions that a baby goes through staying within the womb; it is something like this—

  1. Under the supervision of the Godhead the soul according to his past karma can have access to the womb of a woman.
  2. On the very first night the sperm mixes with ovum, then on the 5th day a bubble is formed which turns into a flesh or an egg like structure on the 10th
  3. In the very first month, the head is formed and in the 2nd month, the hands & feet get formed. During 3rd month, eyes, mouth, ears & anus are formed.
  4. At the end of the 5th month the baby starts feeling hungry & thirsty, if the woman is consuming foods which are spicy, pungent, sour or bitter, then the child suffers through immense pain, because the delicate skin of the baby can’t accept it.
  5. The baby remains within the pathetic place of urine, stool & blood where many worms also reside. They bite again and again to the baby & it pains like anything.
  6. By the end of the 6th month when the complete body is formed, then as per the gender the baby turns, if it’s a baby boy then it turns to the right & if it’s a baby girl then it turns to left.

However, during this condition the shape of the body becomes like a bow which also looks like a bird confined within the cage. Then the baby starts praying to the supreme personality of Godhead and repeatedly requests to make him free from that condition. He also makes a promise to Lord that after becoming free from that painful condition, when he will take birth then will start doing the Bhajan and will devote himself at the pious service of Lord Krishna for entire life. But, right after the birth, the Maya makes him forget everything and the baby gradually starts feeling happy with the company of his parents, then toys and gradually get more & more engrossed in material life.

We suffer in life as we have forgotten about our eternal relation with Godhead and we have also cheated him by breaking our promises that we made to him before coming out from womb. So, it’s the duty of every parent to create a situation or ambiance for their children so that they can re-establish the relation with Godhead. Otherwise, again there life will be aimless, so people who follow the path of devotion & remember the Godhead irrespective of any condition, they remain on the right track of the life and eventually make spiritual progress. One, who is firmly engaged in the pious service of Lord Krishna is known as Krishna conscious and after this life he will surely meet the Godhead. So keep chanting the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra –

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare. Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. 🙂

The Kapila-Devahuti Samvad Volume-2 | Rajesh Haldar

Respected devotees, please accept my humble obeisance. Today I am going to narrate the remaining part of Kapila-Debahuti Samvad in this Volume-2. I felt extremely blessed to see the warm response for the Volume-1 of Kapila Devahuti Samvad, so let’s start with the remaining questions of Mata Debahuti.

Q: Mata Devahuti asked how to fix the mind?

Ans: In reply to that Lord Kapila said, if one can control his breath, then mind can be controlled. Regarding this, personally I would like to add that, few days back when I was listening to the Bhagwat Katha from Kirit Vai Maharaj, then he too said the same thing, the longer you can stop your breath, the more you will be free from all the negative energies like Lust, Anger, Greediness & many more. And, this is something which you need to practice regularly.

Lord Kapila then also asked his mother regarding one other way out to control the restless mind, i.e; during the problematic situations one should recall the beauty of God which is divine & very nice. God is always ready to shower his blessings & do mercy to all his devotees unconditionally. Being human, we should always chant his name; imagine his divine form, recall the past glories etc. One should keep on meditating the beauty of God until his mind is not getting settled.

Q: Mata Devahuti asked how to meditate the beauty of God?

Ans: Then Lord Kapila answered that—

lotus feet of krishna

Lotus feet of Krishna

  1. First, one should meditate his Lotus-feet which hold the pious signs of Flag, Thunderbolt, and Lotus etc. This is the feet from which the sacred river Ganga has appeared & Lord Shankar is holding this very river in his head. Goddess Laxmi always keeps on serving these pious feet with extreme care. After waking up in the morning, one who imagines the Lotus feet of God, all his sins gets vanquished instantly.
  2. Next, one should meditate on his 2 knees which are the base of all the powers. Then think of his Pitambar & his waist line.
  3. Next, imagine his Naval where from the Lotus has appeared, this is the Lotus which is the abode of Lord Bramha.
  4. Then, think of his chest & aureola which are covered by the precious gem named as “Markat”.
  5. Then think of his entire chest which is covered with the milky white Pearl necklaces & chains. Goddess Laxmi resides in his chest in the form of a Golden line. The chest of God is the actual source of all divine pleasures and renders full satisfaction to our mortal eyes.
  6. Next, we should imagine his throat which is decorated with the jewel named as Koustav.
  7. Next, we should imagine both the hands of God which are the sources of energy of all demigods.
  8. Next, think of his Lotus Face, his ears which are decorated with earrings. His pointed nose is making his face look more beautiful. Then, his curly hairs which are the source of clouds, his lotus like eyes, the divine eyebrows that can enchant the hearts of thousands of cupids. His eyes which are always full of mercy, his lips that chuckles. One who imagines God in this way with full of devotion in heart, gets relieved from all the sufferings of this material world. A distressed person, who imagines God in his smiling form, instantly all his tears get absorbed by the grace of Lord.

Kapila & Mata Devahuti Samvad

Q: Next, Mata Devahuti requested her son to guide her regarding the path of devotion or Bhaktimarg.

Ans: Lord Kapila answered as – Mata, the path of devotion has separate forms according to the separate qualities present in different individuals—

  1. One, who is performing the bhakti or devotional services, but feels very proud of himself, boasts about his devotion towards Lord, feels jealous to others, angry in nature, one who considers himself as the best devotee, is actually possessing the impure form of devotion within himself. This is also known as mixed devotion or Tamas or Tamasik devotion. This form of devotion is very inferior in quality. These types of devotees also think that one day they too will be like God.
  2. One, who is not bothered about the happiness of God, but only focussed in getting boons that will eventually make him famous in material world, is also a kind of devotion which is influenced by the Rajas or Rajasik guna.
  3. Devotees, who wish to free themselves from all types of fruitItive activities, perform rituals and worship God and put all the fruit of their acts at the lotus feet of God, is also a kind of devotion which is known as Satwik Devotion.
  4. When a devotee worships God out of his pure love where he has no expectation at all, is the purest form of devotion. A pure devotee, will always do things to please Krishna only, behind any of his acts, there will be no selfishness. These types of proactive services towards Lord are fully transcendental in nature & it never gets contaminated by the effect of material world.

Q: Mata Devahuti asked to Lord Kapila about the signs of a devotee and the duties to be performed by them.

Ans: Lord Kapila answered that a devotee should regularly visit to temples where he will see the idol or the Arch-bigraha form of deities, will worship God and will join the prayer too. Devotees should also consider everyone as the part & parcel of super soul, he will respect every words of Sadguru (his bonafide master) and carry out all the duties suggested in shastras. Regularly one should join the Satsang & listen to the devotional kathas like Bhagwad Maha Puran, Ramayan Katha & study the slokas of Bhagwad gita. A devotee will always engage himself in chanting the divine name of Hari or the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra.

I would like to stop the Volume-2 here as 2 very important discussions to be covered in Volume-3 where Lord Kapila will explain to Mata Devahuti about the repeated birth & death cycle. And, that explanation is directly related to the contemporary world and many of you will see direct resemblance of your life in Volume 3. Even, you all will come to know about the astonishing facts regarding the pains of a new born baby that he suffers for long 9 months staying within the womb of mother.

If you have liked reading this pious piece of information then help others too in your circle to read about this by sharing the article in your Facebook or Google+ platforms. Thank you and Hare Krishna. 🙂

The Great Kapila-Devahuti Samvad of Srimad-bhagavatam- Volume 1

Before I start explaining the “Kapila-Devahuti Samvad” of Srimad-Bhagavatam, let me tell you who is Lord Kapila & a brief history about his advent, he is also known as Kapil Muni, according to Bhagwat Mahapuran, Lord Kapila was the advent of Lord Krishna himself. His parents Mata Devahuti & the great Kardama Muni both were very much aware of the divinity of their son as the fact was revealed to them by Lord Brahma himself many years ago about Lord Kapila’s advent. Lord Brahma also told to Devahuti that her son will enlighten her with spiritual wisdom. This Kapiladeva was one of the Mahajanas. The word Mahajana means “authority”, and according to the Vedic Sastras there are 12 authorities. They are Swayambhu, Narada, Sambhu or Lord Shiva, Kumara, Kapila, Manu, Prahlada, Janaka, Bhisma, Bali, Sukadeva Gosvami & Yamaraja.

According to Varnasrama-dharma if one has born as Brahmana, he is nicely trained as Brahmachari, and then  he becomes a Grihastha, a house holder. When he gives up his home, he is called a Vanaprastha and after that he may take Sannyasa. Being a Yogi, Kardama Muni strictly followed these principles; therefore as soon as Kapiladeva was grown, Devahuti was placed in his charge. Kardama Muni then left home. After his departure, Devahuti, remembering the words of Lord Brahma, approached to her divine son and humbly expressed her desire for spiritual enlightenment. A person who is interested in inquiring about transcendental subjects, Krishna-katha makes him very glad, therefore Kapiladeva was very glad to hear that his Mother was eager to receive information on how to be delivered from material bondage. Now the conversation between them takes place as follows:

Mata Devahuti told her son Kapil Muni that, may be I am holding a very respectable position in the eyes of this world being the wife of Kardama Muni & the mother of you who is none other than Lord Vishnu. However, I am too much engrossed in this illusory world, I am highly addicted in satisfying my senses. Please guide me now, how should I live & what should I do.

Then Kapilmuni said, by discussing the leela or past deed of God with pure devotees, your heart will be purified & you will feel contented within yourself. By discussing the Bhagwat kathas gradually you will proceed towards salvation and your heart will be filled with respect & love for God. When someone engages himself in devotional work, then he can control his heart, if heart seems to be out of control then be rest assured that the person is not performing any devotional work.

Then Mata Devahuti told, I’m a halfwit, how shall I practice devotion? How shall I serve the lotusfeet of God? How shall I perform the Bhakti Yoga?

In reply to that Lord Kapila gave her certain instructions to be followed-

  1. Possess the equal feelings towards all, it means never differentiate any living being through mere material body or it’s sex, rather consider all living beings as souls, because we all are parts of Paramatma (Supersoul).
  2. Never possess the hatred feelings for anyone.
  3. Don’t get too close or intimate with anyone, it means, you will have the hatred feelings for none, that’s fine, but at the same time it also does not mean that you will start getting mingled up with everyone. Being a devotee you shall always try hard to progress in the path of devotion & get accompanied with devotees only. Don’t consider anyone as your rival, but mix with people or do satsang with people who are engaged in god’s service.
  4. One should carry out the Brahmacharya vrat sincerely, it means, it’s good to stay away from the sex life totally, or else a devotee should marry by following all the vedic rules properly & live a peaceful married life, a couple should come close only with the intention to give birth to a Krishna devotee.
  5. It’s better not to speak, a devotee should remain busy in devotional work only, he should not get indulged himself in meaningless discussion. A true devotee will participate in discussions related to Krishna only.
  6. A devotee should devote all the fruits or results of his karma at the service of Krishna only, it means whatever he will arrange or eat or earn, will utilize the same at the pious service of Krishna only to please him, devotee will do nothing to satisfy his own senses.
  7. One should not waste his precious time of his life by running after the wealth. It means, one should be happy with the earning that comes easily, it’s quite obvious that in order to survive we need wealth, but it also does not mean that one should work 24/7 just to earn the livelihood. Most of the time one should be engaged in devotional work only. And starting from Rich to Poor, anyone can practice the devotional service for Krishna.
  8. One should avoid overeating. It means, you should eat only that much which will be required to survive, you should not overeat in order to satisfy your tongue. And being devotee, one should accept the Krishna Prasadam only, so whatever you wish to eat, first offer the same to Krishna, then accept the same as Prasadam.
  9. A devotee should be thoughtful, he should constantly think of the past glories of Lord Shri Krishna & should also try find out ways to improve himself further at the service of Krishna.
  10. One should not live in a place where there will be the crowd of materialistic people, because people who are under the influence of material nature & it’s charm, will always run after the materialistic development, they have nothing to do with the spiritual development, thus it will have it’s negative impact upon the devotee.
  11. One should remain calm. It means, live your life in a very simple way, neither you should get excited, nor you should react to incidents which are taking place in the material world, rather think how to get the mercy of Lord Krishna & of your Sad Guru (Bonafide Spiritual Master).
  12. Be friendly with everyone. It means, people who are following the path of devotion, be respectful to them & always try to serve them. But, people who are atheists, be patient & spend time with them until your job is not getting done.
  13. People who are simple & innocent by nature, be merciful to them. It means, people who are simple, but not atheist & at the same time who do not have enough spiritual knowledge, be merciful to them and inspire them to become Krishna conscious.
  14. Self realization is must. It means, devotees will never consider themselves as mere material body or mind. Our real identities are that we are the servants of Lord Krishna & we are souls too. If we will always remain careful about this concept then we will become successful in devotional path.
Lord Kapila Muni

Kapil Muni

Next, Mata Devahuti asked “He Bramhan, will the material nature ever allow a person to remain free of it’s influence? Because, it’s quite normal that the materialistic people & the material nature will always attract to each other. Whatever a person does, it’s not possible for him to avoid the influence of material nature as long as the Maya(Illusion) is not setting him free from her great Maya Shakti or illusory power. So, how the problem can be solved from root?

In response to this Kapila Muni replied – “One who is sincere in the Bhakti Marg(Path of devotion) can easily avoid the effect of material nature. When one is sleeping then he might not be conscious & can see many inauspicious aspects while dreaming, but when he wakes up & become conscious, then nothing can create illusion for him. A person who is Krishna conscious, the Maya will never influence him.

Next, Mata Devahuti asked, why sometimes we see devotees do get attracted by the Illusory power & consequently they give up the the Bhaktimarg (path of devotion)?

Kapila Muni replied, devotees who have been serving the Godhead since births after births, they never get attracted by any material aspect of this universe, they are fully conscious. They never get detracked from the path of devotion. Only devotees who are not sincere in Bhakti Marg, they only get attracted or influenced by the Illusion or Maya. People should perform their duties sincerely and will refrain from any activity which is prohibited by the Shastras. According to the shastras, one who is satisfied or content with his present condition, should be treated as rich person, so, we should not think only billionaires & millionaires are the real reach people, dear friends, they are not rich at all, because they are not satisfied with the wealth that they have, they want to acquire more and more money, so one who is never satisfied and aspiring something or the other all the time, should be treated as actual Poor, this is the reason Lord Kapila told to her mother that one should remain satisfied in life with anything that God has given to him and he should constantly engage himself in serving his SadGuru (spiritual master) and worship the God Head.

Here I would like to end this volume 1 of “Kapil-Devahuti Samvad”, in Volume 2, Mata Debahuti will ask how to control the mind, because this is a problem which we all want the solution of, be we are devotees or students or Teachers or CEOs, we all have this problem, so in next volume we will hear the solution direct from Lord Kapila or Kapil Muni. So just stay tuned and pray for me so that Krishna allows me to complete the Volume 2 very soon. In the mean time please don’t forget to share your precious feedback regarding this article & if you will like it then please share in your circle so that others too get to know about “Kapil Debahuti Samvad”. Thank you. Hare Krishna. 🙂

Mahabharat: Reason for which Pitamah Bhishma had to suffer on the Bed of Arrows

Dear Devotees, till date all the posts which I have made in rajeshhaldar.com, you have found that behind each situation or incident there was past karma involved of the concerned persons. Similarly when we will try to know for what reasons a true devotee of Krishna and respectable person Pitamah Bhishma had to suffer through the pain of thrones like arrows then we will see his past karma is responsible for this. During the war of Kurushetra when Bhishma was struck down by Arjuna with his arrows then he had fallen down from his chariot, as his whole body was pierced through many arrows so his body could not touch the ground, rather those pierced arrows became his bed on which his body was lying. Later when he requested Arjuna to arrange pillow so that he can rest his head then Arjuna made a support like pillow with help of arrows, even when Pitamah Bhishma asked for water then Arjuna struck one more arrow to the earth and Mata Ganga appeared with her cold water. He had the boon of dyeing at his own will, so he was lying on the bed of arrows till the moment the war did not end and he saw the Hastinapore in a safe hand. Later when Krishna went to meet him with all Pandavas then after offering pranama Bhishma asked him – “He Madhav, you say that Karmanye Vadhikaraste, Ma phaleshou kada chana, it means, this Mrityuloka or earth is the land of Karma and this is place where we receive the result or fruits of our past karmas. I know about all my past 17 births, but never I caused any pain to anyone, then why I have received so much pain through this bed of arrows?”, listening to this question Krishna smiled & asked him -“you do remember all your past 17 births? What about the 18th?”, then Pitamah said -“I don’t remember about my 18th birth”. Then Krishna told him that “in your 18th birth you were a prince and committed a sin by throwing off a snake with your arrow, when you had thrown it away then it had fallen upon a place which was full of thrones, many thrones got pierced through the body of that snake, it was causing great pain to him, later all family members of that snake tried to help him to get rid of those thrones, but they failed, then before dyeing the snake cursed you “He Rajan, I don’t know your identity, but the way you have caused me pain of thrones similarly one day you too will experience the same, you too will have a huge family, but no one will be able to uproot those thrones from your body and in this way you will die.”, then Krishna added more “as you followed the path of devotion in all your births so it was protecting you till date from the sin you committed, but as now you have fought from the side of Adharma (Duryodhan) so the dormant sin has ripened now.”. After listening to that Pitamah Bhishma was satisfied and he wished to die, then a divyajyoti (soul) came out of his body and found it’s place at the lotus feet of Shri Krishna.

mahabharat bhishma on the bed of arrowsLesson: So dear friends, never commit any sinful activity in life, always try to perform good karma and never boast about it. I have seen many of my friends who easily get frustrated to see dishonest people who are earning more and reaching the pinnacle of success very easily, but friends, never compare your condition with those who are dishonest in life, because you are not the Paramatma, so you have no idea about their previous lives and karmas, one thing you all just be rest assured, if something good or bad happens to you then your past karma is responsible for that, it’s not necessary to get the fruits of karma in the same birth itself, like in above incident you have already seen Pitamah Bhishma to suffer the pain of his karma which he did in his previous 18th birth. Just make sure that in this present birth you are causing no pain to others, not committing any injustice or any type of sinful activity. Because, you might think that no one is seeing you, but the Paramatma or Shri Krishna is present in every molecules of this universe, he is watching all our karmas at the same time he is also watching the demigods and their activities too, so we all are mere children of him, he counts all our activities and accordingly we get the fruit of the same. Regarding this I would like to share one small story with all of you.

A small story: Once upon a time there were 2 brothers, one was dishonest but very rich, he was living very happily as he had all the luxurious goods, but the other one was very poor and back to back 3 days he had no food to cook at home, he was surviving on mere alms, then the rich brother mocked upon him and told, “see, you follow the path of devotion and through out the day you do the bhajan only, this is the reason your god has given you no foods, and see me, I don’t do bhajan, but I am having everything. So better join me, work for me & I shall give you foods”, but the poor brother went on continuing his bhajan. One day the rich brother told the poor one to accompany him to a journey, then while walking the rich brother suddenly slipped off and fallen on ground, then he marked that place where he had fallen, when the poor brother asked him why did he mark that place then he said that whenever and wherever he falls on ground, on digging that place he gets a pot full of gold, then the poor brother said “okay” and continued to walk, after a certain time the poor brother slipped off and fallen on ground, but the place where he had fallen were full of thorns, he got wounded, to see this the rich brother again mocked upon him and said “see, where I fall on ground, I get the gold, but as you do the bhajan so you receive the thorns only on falling on ground”, listening to that the poor brother got hurt and started crying and asked god “why this is so? Why even after serving him through Bhajan he receives thorns only?”, then to see his condition god himself appeared in front of him and told “your brother is enjoying his luck because of his past karma, in his past birth he was a benevolent and used to do a lot of charity, this is the reason though he has become dishonest now or not doing any pious work, still enjoying everything and he will continue to enjoy it until his good karma of past life ends up, but Oh my dear devotee, you are dearest to me as you do the bhajan & living your life in ethical ways, actually you were to die when you had fallen, because of your devotion I have given you a new life and beaten your death with those thorns, nothing else”. In this way God blessed him with a happy and new life and disappeared.

So friends, hope you got your answers now why few people are earning more than you even after not following the honest path, don’t worry, once there good karma will end up then they too will start experiencing the misfortune. Just engage yourself in good karma with the feelings of duty and at the end of the day before going to sleep just pray to God and say “Oh My Lord, I am putting all my works and it’s fruits at your lotus feet, please don’t give me any Paap or Punya, just bless me with pure devotion and unconditional love at your lotus-feet so that I can serve you more efficiently & selflessly”, this is what I myself pray to god everyday, because Bhagwat Gita has taught me this which today I have shared with all of you. 🙂 Actually by not expecting or asking for any fruit of your karma you will remain free of any types of bondage and after death you can go back to Krishna, you need not to born again and die again, you will become free of this eternal cycle of birth & death. This is what Nishkam Karmayog is. May Krishna bless you all. Hare Krishna. 🙂
