This is impossible! impossible!

In Vrndavana Radha-Govinda are separate and here in Navadvipa They are combined. More power! Combined! And They had made their mind up to loot – “Take as much wealth as you can. We are giving it to you all.” This is impossible! impossible! What does Prabodhananda Sarasvati say?

kaivalyam narakayate tridasa-purakasa puspayate
durdantendriya-kala-sarpa-patali protkhata-damstrayate
visvam purna-sukhayate vidhi-mahendradis ca kitayate
yat karunya kataksa vaibhavavatam tam gauram eva stumah
(Caitanya-candramrta 5)

Kaivalyam narakayate – if one can get a taste of the dish that is distributed in Navadvipa, if one can get a slight taste of that dish then, kaivalyam narakayate – permanent emancipation will seem to him to be like hell which has been so much preached and admired in so many sastras. Kaivalya-mukti means eternal emancipation from this world of exploitation. The trouble is the tendency to exploit – that is the trouble found by the experts of those areas. What is the trouble? The exploiting tendency forces us to connect with the environment and we have to suffer severely from the reactions. So how to successfully get out of the action-reaction problem? Prabodhananda Sarasvati says, “Oh, you talk so much about kaivalya that you will have no possibility of coming into connection with the exploiting tendency, action-reaction – that is like hell to those that come to see Sri Gauranga-deva’s lotus feet.”

Tridasa-purakasa puspayate – you talk so much about heaven, but that is just like akasa-puspa – an illusory conception, a flower which is produced from the sky. That is the most negligible type of imagination. Your heaven is just like a flower in the sky – it is impossible!

Durdantendriya-kala-sarpa-patali protkhata-damstrayate – when you feel so much difficulty from your senses, they become your master and force you against your will to do so much mischief. Durdantendriya-kala-sarpa-patali – like so many serpents that cannot be controlled. Your senses are like venomous serpents and they are running hither and thither and the reaction is that the poison is coming and making you suffer. But don’t be afraid – protkhata-damstrayate – the venomous teeth have been broken off. The senses will become like that. All your senses will play like so many serpents whose venomous teeth have been removed – so no apprehension from them.
Visvam purna-sukhayate – whatever you will see, hear or touch in the whole environment will only carry waves of happiness to you. Every incident will carry some good news to you always. All the waves from outside will only carry good news to you.

Vidhi-mahendradis ca kitayate – are you afraid of Brahma the creator and Siva the wholesale destroyer of this world? Are you afraid of them? For you they will become like an insect or a worm. Their power and authority against you will not be of any use. Your position will be unassailable if you attain Mahaprabhu’s merciful glance.
Yat karunya kataksa vaibhavavatam tam gauram eva stumah – Mahaprabhu is very benevolent, very magnanimous. If you get His kataksa, His glance – even if you get a glimpse from that glance, if you can attain a point of a ray of the glance of that magnanimous Lord Gauranga, then you will get such a position in the world. This has been described by Prabodhananda Sarasvati.

Gauranga is such – all joy, ecstatic joy. There is no problem –His mercy is of such a type. All difficulties will go far, far away. You will be in the zone of ecstatic joy. No, do not complain! You are in a normal position. Everything else is more or less suffering from the influence of an abnormal stage. You are at such a high degree of normality – you have attained a normal existence to the extreme. More or less all outside is abnormal – so how can it venture to approach you? You have attained the full surrendered stage of Krsna Consciousness to Radha-Govinda and Mahaprabhu. You need not care for anything in this world. No apprehension. Such is the thing we have to conceive and we have to have.
