We cannot go back in one life?

Postby anuj0ue » Sun May 16, 2010 12:18 pm

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

In SB 3.15.24 purport Srila Prabhupada states the following:

ü It is not possible to go back to Godhead in one life, but in human one should at least understand the goal of life and begin KC.

What does it mean? I would be grateful for your reply.

Thank you,
Anuj Agrawal

Hare krishna prabhu,
pamho:agtsp;

please read detail purport line "human form of life because it is specifically meant for the living entity who can attain transcendental knowledge and religious perfection" :geek: that shows if we follow process nicely then we can go back home back to Godhead but It is very difficult.

As i read that part i understood it is to give importance to the process and mercy of great souls .definately we don't deserve to go back in one life.i want to mention something.
1) IN MIllions of life we have not gone that is sufficient to understand that it is difficult task.
2) Bhakti is causeless there is no reason for it no cause , means even one does nice service that doesn't mean krishna will call him to Godhead.krishna has complete free will.krishna may call us in next movement :lol: or after million of life times :lol: , main thing is really we want to serve him just imagine how our mother is attached to us, how chast wife is attached to her husband , in pure love partner doesn't axpect anything in return.
3) Chaitanya mahaprabhu says in sikshashtakam " mam janmani janmani ishware bhavatad bhakti ahetuki ....." means birth after birth you please give me your uninterrupted and unmotivated devotion.that shows there should not be any motivation other than serving krishna (even place can be material or spiritual world)




SB 3.15.24
TRANSLATION

Lord Brahmā said: My dear demigods, the human form of life is of such importance that we also desire to have such life, for in the human form one can attain perfect religious truth and knowledge. If one in this human form of life does not understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead and His abode, it is to be understood that he is very much affected by the influence of external nature.

PURPORT

Brahmājī condemns very vehemently the condition of the human being who does not take interest in the Personality of Godhead and His transcendental abode, Vaikuntha. The human form of life is desired even by Brahmājī. Brahmā and other demigods have much better material bodies than human beings, yet the demigods, including Brahmā, nevertheless desire to attain the human form of life because it is specifically meant for the living entity who can attain transcendental knowledge and religious perfection. It is not possible to go back to Godhead in one life, but in the human form one should at least understand the goal of life and begin Krishna consciousness. It is said that the human form is a great boon because it is the most suitable boat for crossing over the nescience ocean. The spiritual master is considered to be the most able captain in that boat, and the information from the scriptures is the favorable wind for floating over the ocean of nescience. The human being who does not take advantage of all these facilities in this life is committing suicide. Therefore one who does not begin Krrishna consciousness in the human form of life loses his life to the influence of the illusory energy. Brahmā regrets the situation of such a human being.
