Mysticism can be interesting or relevant before understanding that there is an Absolute Truth and that we are an integral part of it; that this Supreme Source, Krishna, offers us perfect love, perfect protection and enlightenment. In the absence of the sun, lamps can be useful. But in the full presence of the sun, these lights are no longer relevant.

SB 2.9.10
pravartate yatra rajas tamas tayoḥ sattvaṁ ca miśraṁ na ca kāla-vikramaḥ
na yatra māyā kim utāpare harer anuvratā yatra surāsurārcitāḥ

I believe the non-fall argument fails because it misinterprets, and ignores, the literal meaning of the words. This occurs because non-fall advocates equate a desire to visit the material world with the functioning of material modes. in fact, we have to separate objects here:

1. a jīva’s desire to experience the material world;

2. the functioning/operating/existing of the three modes of nature.

The first fact, the jīva’s desire, comes from the jīva’s free will, and not from the guṇas. When the jīva thus exercises his or her free will, Kṛṣṇa then brings that jīva into contact with the three modes which exist only in the material world.

Thus the three guṇas do not operate in Vaikuṇṭha and the jīva falls from Vaikuṇṭha. The jīva must now go BACK to home, BACK to Godhead. #hdg #hdgoswami #prabhupada #shastra #vedas #bhagavatam #gita

The main rule is to accept what is favorable for our Krishna consciousness, and to reject what is unfavorable. So, with this ‘person of interest’, you should intelligently observe the effect of this association, that is to say whether his company helps or impedes your Krishna consciousness. You did not mention whether that person knows Krishna consciousness. For a devotee, a partner is first and foremost a partner on our spiritual path. In this world, there are people who are good traveling companions, and others who spoil the trip. #hdg #hdgoswami #krishnaconsciousness #relationships

Srila Prabhupada, ŚB 1.5.22 purport:
"Human intellect is developed for advancement of learning in art, science, philosophy, physics, chemistry, psychology, economics, politics, etc. By culture of such knowledge the human society can attain perfection of life. This perfection of life culminates in the realization of the Supreme Being, Viṣṇu.”

"When advancement of knowledge is applied in the service of the Lord, the whole process becomes absolute.”

🌞Please note that tomorrow the Srimad-Bhagavatam lecture will start at 11am EST, instead of our regular 10am EST time. SB 1.11.9 #hdg #hdgoswami #krishnawest #iskcon #prabhupada #bhaktiyoga
