Notes of class given by HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja, 08-09-2014

On 08-09-2014 HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja took a question-answer session in gurgaon.
Some notes from the session:

Que- How to break the cycle of birth and death?
Ans- firstly proper understanding is required, What is death?- soul's departure from body and birth is soul's acceptance of new body; and duration from birth and death is lifetime.  
-We turned our face from lord, revolted with him, but he always stay with us. 
-Example: A child want to play with the friends, father created a park and takes him there, child plays with his friends, father sits there and watch his child, when it becomes dark, all his friends go to their houses, the child being fearful calls out his father, his father comes there and takes him away. 
-Actually we are those children, father created this field , here we are playing completely, we have forgotten him, sometimes in fear we call his name, there he comes.

Que.: While preaching how to balance our state of consciousness to do as a service?
Ans- KC gives us ultimate benefit to the ultimate problem that is death. Nobody wants to die, KC will make you conquer death. 
-Prabhupada gave Music, Prasad and love to the people in US. 
-Consider it like that preaching is for my own purification and pray to krishna and offer all credit to Srila Prabhupada who is the actually creaditable. 

"When you can identify the mistake then only you can rectify the mistake " 

Que.: Sometimes it happens that I have to force myself to chant and read SP books, it doesnt comes automatically.
Ans- Devotional service can be practised in association of devotees.

Que.: How can one give up attachments?
Ans- Spiritual attachment is good but not the material attachment. 
-By getting the higher taste lower taste can be given up  
-By getting the higher taste of krsna prasad you don't think of food.

Que.:  we become angry, do wrong with others.
Ans- Paramatma is watching us.
-gets carried away by your emotions.
-If someone is watching you, uou'll stop. Krishna is always watching you.
-Its a matter of being aware. Always remember that someone is watching you.

Que.: How to reduce offence commiting  tendency.
Ans- Ultimate solution is Krishna Consciousness. We are doing it from lives and lives. It is good that you are realising this thing.
- ultimately its a matter of love, attachment wont come artificially. Because of our attachments and impurity, we are not developing love for krishna.
- We are spiritually diseased and materially immature.

- Mind is the receptical of senses. mind is the basis through which we connects to lord.
-Mind is taking us away from krsna, think of krsna from mind.
