Questions and Answers
Kshatriya will fight with Kshatriya with Dharmic codes. Duryodhana comes in category of Atatai ( an aggressor, who burns home or tries to molest women or unsurps the land or plans to murder using some treachery, steals cows etc. ). Duryodhana did all these irreligious actions. He himself broke many codes of fight either at the time of murdering Abhimanyu or fighting at night. As well as trying to kill Pandavas in so many immoral tactics viz Lakshagrah, sending Durvasa Muni etc. Therefore, to break rules of fighting while engaged with Duryodhana is not a serious crime.
Also in some commentaries of Mahabharat, Duryodhana is cursed by a sage ( he was patting his thigh as a sign of displaying arrogance towards the advice of sage ). Bhimsen whirled his mace while they were low but Duryodhana rose up and the mace hit his thighs. Sage curse can’t be undone.
Duryodhana showed his thigh as a vulgar sexual invitation to Draupadi. That time Bhimsen vowed to break his thighs. We see that if someone’s speech is very offensive, it is said to cut an offender’s tongue; if someone steals, hands are chopped off. Similarly, seeing the gravity of offense when Duryodhana is showing naked thigh to Draupadi fairly justifies the punishment given by Bhimsen, her husband who has full right to tackle matters concerning disgrace to his beloved wife.
This theme will be covered exhaustively in the upcoming sessions. ( Bhagavad Gita chapter 3,4,5,12,16,17 & 18 talks very much about Karma related things )
How do you feel, walking alongside the PM of India or President of the United States ? Do you feel somewhat secure in the vicinity of a Indian Army Commander/ officer? We feel elated and safe. Similarly, as soon as we realise that Supreme God, who is the most powerful , who is the most loving is constantly with us. We feel safe physically, mentally, emotionally and also spiritually. That’s what we learn in Gita, Arjuna was in great anxiety due to weakness arising in his heart but as He realised the divine plan and causeless mercy of Lord Krishna. All fear disappeared as darkness is dissipated in the presence of Sun ( Chapter 4,5 & 14 of Gita, deals with this subject matter.)
This is a very genuine query of a sincere seeker of the Absolute Truth. Let us try to understand this in the thematic flow of Bhagavad Gita. In the first chapter Arjuna is very much troubled by material issues pertaining to the body and people related to this body. Why ? Because he has no idea of anything beyond his material body. Then in the second chapter Krishna expounded knowledge of something beyond this body i.e mind, intelligence, soul and supersoul. Therefore, we observe that Questions of Arjuna in later chapters get more refined and spiritually oriented.
Same is here my dear friend. Not many know what is spirit ? Then how come they understand anything spiritual ? There is no point in the audience for appreciating spiritual happiness. But, the good news is , in the Second session ( based on the second chapter of Gita ), we have to discuss the types of happiness and supremacy of Spiritual bliss ( because, that’s all Sri Krishna said in that chapter ). Please do come for next session, I hope that you will be very pleased this Saturday.
Understand the analogy from 4th session, like if farmer does not purchase seed and rainfall comes , will the results come? Though rainfall may come unless we endeavour, crop will not grow. Though many events in our life happens as a result of previous lives but at the same time if we do not endeavour now, we may not get the results which we are destined. Today’s actions will create future’ destiny.
Will discuss more in the 7th session coming Sunday.

Knowledge is calledn jnana and application of knowledge is called vijnana. We can get jnana – understanding by reading ourselves but ability to apply that jnana and change our life and experience God in our life comes by the mercy of one who has experrienced God and controlled his senses. that is why we need a Guru who has realized God and by his mercy , we can apply the knowledge.

In Kali Yuga we are not punished for our thoughts but still we need to watch our thoughts so they do not turn into actions.
Yes, neither can we know nor it is very useful. therefore, by taking shelter of Krishna in form of chanting his Names and reading Gita, we should uproot the very tendency to commit mistakes and sins.
We will discuss this elaborately in sessions. Our authorities are all the Acharya like Shankaracharya, Ramanuja Acharya, Madhva Acharya, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu etc. all the Vedas, Upanishads and puranas.
Depends on mantra. one cannot chant any mantra whimsically but it has to be in Vedic scriptures. you can chant Om Namo Narayanay and other Vedic mantra for Lord Vishnu and Lord Rama.

Yes, why not ? Krishna protects anyone who takes his shelter. this is promise of Lord Ram “Anyone even Ravana will say only once” Oh Lord I m yours, and takes my shelter ” in any circumstance as my eternal vow, I will protect him ” Krishna also promises in 9 th Chapter of Gita. we will discuss this more in sessions.

Lust or this hormonal change sits in our senses, mind and intelligence. Intelligence can be controlled and purified by hearing the wisdom of Gita. Mind will come out of this problem by keeping away from temptations and chanting “Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare” 108 times every day. Senses can be controlled by engaging in the service of The Lord and eating the food offered to Lord.
Simple, your desires will be fulfilled.
Yes, great souls like HH Bhakti Charu Maharaj are beyond birth and death. Such pure souls are under the will of the Lord. Lord can call his loving servants back to Him by using corona as an excuse. eg – Krishna called for Parikshit Mj by a young brahamana cursing Parikshit mj to die in 7 days and then Srimad Bhagavatam came out.
This is not correct, Dara Singh was vegetarian. Deepak Kochari, Mr. India is vegetarian. It is myth that one can be healthy by eating non veg. Though in long run it very much complicates the health. Protien present in non vegetarian food stuffs may give some inital sense of health but as time passes, they cause horrible diseases. Eat healthy fresh food like fruits, cow milk, vegetables and if you offer them to Krishna, what ever else sin is present will be thoroughly removed. How can one eat non veg ? Can we touch raw flesh ? Can we hear the scream of animal being slaughtered ? Can we see that horrible scene of chopping up an innocent creature ? Can we smell that ? Then, how can we eat such a filthy thing. Chanakya pandit has said as well as it is proved in the researches that pound worth of meat energy can be substituted by one spoon of pure ghee from cow milk. So, please be fearless in being a vegetarian.
The cause of our stress and misery in life because we have separated ourselves from God. The moment you start connecting yourselves to God with knowledge – you will see you will develop a lot of positivity in your life. Best way is to connect to God is to chant His holy names. Please chant “Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare”.
Yes , as we go on surrendering by remembering the Lord, following Lord’s teachings in Bhagavad Gita – our sin gets diminished. Just by taking shelter of Krishna through bhakti yoga all sins and karma are burnt.
People become rich by giving charity to vaishnavas who are genuinely dedicated to God because they will use such donation only for serving God . That is why anywhere in the world the custom of giving charity for serving God and propagating knowledge about Krishan Consciousness is there. But we can receive much more by directly connecting to God by chanting His holy names.
When results do not come according to our endeavours , we can understand it is due to our destiny and accept it and go ahead with our duty.
If we chant holy name in Brahma muhurta it helps a lot to chant attentively, also We need to hear glories of attentively chanting holy name from devotees that is the best way but apart from that, we should be at least intellectually convinced that best way to to carry out anything or to get rid of worry is to take shelter of Krishna and chanting is the best way to do so. If we make determination to ch?ant attentively and consciously hear holy name then Krishna also helps us to so. so we need to put honest endeavor to chant , and try to chant one mantra at a time, forget about whole world just think that you have to hear this one “Hare Krishna” and that is my goal in life.
As devotees we need not worry much about kundilini but if somebody practices KC over a decade and follow proper brahmacharya , it happens over decades automatically for a devotee.
God is not playing with us but he is a loving father who is trying to fulfill our own desire to enjoy separately from Him,. If you remember the example of the boy who wanted to drive father’s car but father out of love gave him a peddling car. In the same way God gives us facility to enjoy in this world but the soul’s nature is that it can enjoy with God. In the same way when we realize it – Lord has made arrangement to give Gita in which he tells the way to come to us.
Any non-grain items like fruits, singada atta.
Srila Prabhupada once said, “You just follow the process, we will train your eyes to see God”? It just requires training to see God. Even Duryodhana saw Lord Krishna but he could not understand Him. So we need to first purify our heart and develop love for him by chanting His names and by reading scriptures like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam then we will be able to see Him with eyes of love. He is sitting right there in our heart.
|ABCD – Have regular association of devotees, read Srila Prabhupada books regularly, Chant daily a fixed no , Offer whatever you are cooking to the Lord, Engage in some service of the Lord – Keep Krishna photo in the altar and offer him flower everyday. You can also hear beautiful kirtans by great devotees of the Lord especially “Hare Krishna” kirtan.|
In Spiritual World there is thirst, hunger but you can enjoy any type of food you want, at any time. There is no influence of time there- so no day and night. It is completely divine place beyond our experience of this world but by following the process of bhakti yoga , you can experience spiritual world right in this material world before you can actually reach there.
Because many souls are coming from animal species to earth and human beings are not graduating to higher forms due to lack of piety in Kali yuga.
Early morning especially before sunrise.
Pandavas never went to hell but when Yudhistira Maharaj went to hell , even the punishments of other people in hell were stopped. So they were kind of shown hell. They actually went to heaven and from there they went to Lord Krishna’s abode.
f we remember our past life then we will be very miserable and all our near and dear ones also, our family members will send us to psychologist and get lot of medicines, it is not just collection of previous information but emotions of that life also will come and we will be troubled more, so that is why mercifully krishna allows us forget, moreover we don’t remember what we had in breakfast one year before on the same day?, so then what to speak of past life.
Any vegetarian food cooked with devotion except eggs, meat, onion garlic can be offered to the Lord.
Actually if you see what Jesus teachings were – “I have lot to tell you but you cannot digest” but Krishna says – I have told you full knowledge in complete detail. So Lord has sent this messengers and this religion according to time, place and circumstance and according to the level of those people. That some way or other people remain connected to God even though some other way.Jesus is called the son of God and Mohammed is called the messenger of God.
Yes, Rama may refer to Lord Rama, Balaram, Radha Raman.
David Hoey in last life practiced Krishna Consciousness only for 1 year and died in an accident but Krishna protected him by giving him chance to again practice Devotional Service.
Vyasadev had predicted it, who was a literary incarnation of God.
Unlimited and we cannot track it.
Depending on their karma – pious or sinful they will get an animal body, human body or a demigod body.
Purpose of even increasing the age by slowing breathing is to meditate on Lord Vishnu and go back to Vaikuntha which we are doing by chanting Hare Krishna.
Remembering Krishna 24 hrs is a very high platform but we begin our spiritual life by regularly chanting our rounds in morning. Read regularly Srila Prabhupada books, eating food offered to Krishna, Connecting everything we are doing in our life to Krishna. Slowly slowly as keep on hearing about Krishna and chanting, our attachment to Krishna will develop and our heart will get purified. Main thing is to stay connected with devotees.
Nobody gets moksha by having a baby boy, only thing the male child can do sraddha by which if parents are suffering in hell, they will be relieved from that suffering. But Lord Narsimhadev says that anybody who becomes a pure devotee can deliver his ancestors so even as a girl you become devotee of Krishna, your parents will also get benefit.
Does your parents say you to follow their advice, take them seriously what they are saying. Yes or no. Same way God is telling us to worship Him so we will come out of this cycle of birth and death. But actually He just wants to love us like a friend just like Krishna loves Arjuna. He is fully satisfied but out of love for us , He is giving the knowledge of Bhagavad Gita. He loves more than anyone else in this world.
This world is made in such a way, the more you will have expectations from this world it will give you more frustration. Rather devleop gratitude what God has given to you then you can always be happy. Just like we never pray for distress but still distress comes in this world, in the same way happiness will also come without looking for it.
Yes, that is what Lord Krishna assures in Bhagavad Gita. Proof is when Srila Prabhupada went to west so many people who became devotees in the west were from families who will regularly eat meat, drink wines, roam with girls but they got purified and became great souls. We only need ABCDE- association of saintly people and chanting the Holynames.
BG 9.34 Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, become My devotee, offer obeisances to Me and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me. How to apply – ABCDE formula.
Even Ajamila was released by Yamadutas because He chanted the holyname of Lord Narayana, The whole purpose of creation and the account of sin and piety is actually to bring a person to bring him to the path of devotional service to God. So when somebody comes on that path, he is no longer under the jurisdiction of Yamaraj and protected by the Supreme Lord Himself. But that does not mean that somebody can chant holynames and keep doing sinful activities knowingly. This is offensive mentality , in such cases Lord may not protect. But in case of Ajamila he did not chant to avoid punishment for his sinful activities.
We need to follow the process of bhakti only to come out of karma, we need to understand karma to take responsibility of our actions. I i do bad today it will bring bad to me only, also if some suffering is coming, it is due to my past misdeed so i need not to blame others but at the same time protect myself if someone is harming.
we suggest devotees to chant 108 times in the morning itself while trying to hear the mantra after bath, other times as such there is no hard and fast rules to chant this mantra, anytime you can chant or even sing during your activites.
The purpose of rules and regulations is to bring to the stage of spontaneous devotion. Generally we may have spontaneous devotion for Krishna and also attraction for material objects in this world. But when we follow the rules and regulations of devotional service while fulfilling our material desires in a proper way through dharma our attraction for material objects will go away and full attraction for Krishna will get awakened. So we need guidance of Guru to perform bhakti to achieve liberation.
yes that is why Srila prabhupad said that in every ISKCON temple there should be a. Holy Darshan of lord, b. Holy books to read c. Holy association d. Holy Name should be chanted and e. Holyprasdam should be distributed to all guest.
Our duty is to follow four regulative principles of freedom about which you will learn in future sessions and perform loving devotional service to Krishna by chanting holyname by reading scriptures and by associating with devotees. for more details please read BG 9.34 , 9.26, 9.27.
No, its not OK , yo may through them out of house but please don’t kill them , also if we maintain high cleanliness then cockroaches will not come to such places.
Purusa-avataras and their expansions Krsna first incarnates as the three purusa-avataras, namely the Maha-Visnu or Karanodakasayi avatara, the Garbhodakasayi avatara and the Ksirodakasayi avatara.
This is confirmed in the Satvata-tantra: visnos tu trini rupani purusakhyany atho viduh ekam tu mahatah srastr dvitiyam tv anda-samsthitam trtiyam sarva-bhuta-stham tani jnatva vimucyate “
For material creation, Lord Krsna’s plenary expansion assumes three Visnu’s. The first one, Maha Visnu, creates the total material energy, known as mahat-tattva. The second, Garbhodakasayi Visnu, enters into all the universes to create diversities in each of them. The third, Ksirodakasayi Visnu, is diffused as the all-pervading Supersoul in all the universes and is known as Paramatma. He is present even within the atoms.
Anyone who knows these three Visnus can be liberated from material entanglement.”
(Satvata-tantra quoted in Bg. 7.4 purport) Krsna is the original Personality of Godhead. His expansion is Balarama, who expands the original catur vyuha or quadruple expansions. 1) Vasudeva 2) Sankarsana 3) Pradyumna 4) Aniruddha.
These original catur vyuha expansions reside in Mathura and Dvaraka. From them twenty four forms of Visnu expand. They are named differently according to the arrangement of the conch, disc, lotus and club in Their hands. All of these twenty four forms reside in each Vaikuntha planet with the predominating Deity of that planet.
From the original catur vyuha the second catur vyuha expands.
In this second catur vyuha the form of Sankarsana is also called Maha Sankarsana. It is from Maha Sankarsana that Maha Visnu becomes manifested.
KRSNA Original Personality of Godhead, BALARAMA is First expansion. ORIGINAL CATUR VYUHA Vasudeva, Sankarsana, Pradyumna, Aniruddha | | SECOND CATUR VYUHA Vasudeva, Sankarsana,¿ Pradyumna, Aniruddha (each expand into three and then another two expansions) | | (Maha Sankarsana) | | MAHA VISNU 1) MAHA VISNU lies on the Causal Ocean which appears in one corner of the spiritual world. He manifests the mahat tattva (or the sum total of material energy). It is into this mahat tattva that He exhales all of the seedlike universes through the pores of His skin. These seedlike universes then expand as the different material elements form coverings around them. Each of the coverings is ten times thicker than the previous covering and form a shell-like covering. When Maha Visnu impregnates the living entities by His glance into the material nature it begins to manifest its various energies. 2) When the universes have thus developed in the womb of material nature, Maha Visnu expands as GARBHODAKASAYI VISNU, Who enters into each universe with the living entities of that particular universe and thus activates each universe by His presence. He lies down on Ananta Sesa who lies on the Garbha ocean, which is the perspiration from the Lord’s body and half fills the universe. From His navel comes a lotus bud which is the total form of the living entities’ fruitive activity. The lotus grows dissipating the darkness of the universe. On top of the lotus Brahma, the first living being appears. Situated on the lotus, Brahma could not understand anything. He began entering the stem and climbed down to find its origin. Not finding anything, Brahma again returned to the top of the lotus where he heard the word ta-pa (austerity). Hearing the sound Brahma underwent penance for one thousand celestial years; Being very pleased with Brahma’s tapasya, the Lord manifested the Vaikuntha planets to him. Seeing Vaikuntha, Brahma became very happy and bowed to the Lord. Being very pleased with Brahma the Lord shakes his hand and reveals how to create the universe. 3) To maintain the universe Garbhodakasayi Visnu expands as KSIRODAKASAYI VISNU, Who is the all-pervading Supersoul (Paramatma). By His entering into every atom He maintains the whole universe. His abode is Svetadvipa, an island in the ocean of milk.
Krsna’s energies can also be divided into three: His energy of thinking feeling and acting. When He exhibits His thinking energy, He is the Supreme Lord; when He exhibits His feeling energy, He is Lord Vasudeva; when He exhibits His acting energy, He is Sankarsana Balarama. Without His thinking, feeling and acting, there would be no possibility of creation. Although there is no creation in the spiritual world – for there the planets are beginningless – there is creation in the material world. In either case, however, both the spiritual and material worlds are manifestations of the energy of acting, in which Krsna acts in the form of Sankarsana and Balarama.

Please read BG 7.15 purport.
if chanting is done early in morning specially in Brahma muhurta (1.5 hour before sunrise till sunrise ) is most effective apart from this if you chant with some other devotees who are already chanting that also helps us not to get disturb, prayers are ultimate shelter to chant holyname attentively so if we request to krishna that please help me I want to become a sincere devotee and want to chant attentively , krishna will help. It is good sign that you are able to recognise that mind is difficult to control same problem Arjuna had in BG 6.34 and krishna answers it is next sloka you can read these two slokas. You can also read “Japa” book by HG Bhurijana pr , it will help you a lot. Also if you read srila prabhupad books everyday 3-min-1hour it will improve your chanting.
Time management is easy when we have controlled mind. there is GIGO principal which says that if for prolonged period of time if we put GOOD IN then GOOD OUT else if we do GARBAGE IN then GRABAGE OUT. So when we come to mode of goodness the automatically mind control will be easy and best way to do it is by chanting early in morning and also regulated in our habits(please read BG 6.17 ).
Yes many of the thoughts of previous life are saved in our subconscious mind and we may remember in this life. Also some times mind mixes things and presents new thoughts to us eg we may see gold in day and we may see a mountain so in night we may get dream of golden mountain. Also seeing ghostly beings in dreams may be because of ghost haunting us in our dreams and all of them are in mode of ignorance so as soon as you start chanting none of these creatures will be able to harm you. You are becoming Krishna conscious that is why you are getting dreams of Krishna which is very rare and very nice.
Jesus said that he is son of God and never claimed to be God.
That is why Krishna told Arjuna that you just become instrument in my hand means Krishna wanted to glorify his devotee Arjuna so this is the magnanimous nature of Krishna ,Also this has a great significance in our life — if we just follow the order of God for sure success is going to be there. Also through battle Krishna wanted to teach that those who do Adharma their situation will be like that of kauravas.
Our goal is to please Srila Prabhupad and our achryas and krishna by book distribution but for know for sure that it will never go in vain, I can tell you thousands of stories that how krishna helped some eg one man was in drunkard state and was eating watermelon and some how his watermelon piece fell in a bin and he puts his hand to take out but he gets a BG in turn(Some one has thrown it there)this person opened BG as it is and read it and a full krishna conscious devotee. So now if we think about the person who threw in dustbin was useless but he became instrument in getting BG for this devotee so we dont know what plan Krishna has we do not know. So have faith in Krishna and go on with enthusiasm Krishna will be pleased with endeavor and that is what we want.
This Bhāgavata Purāṇa is as brilliant as the sun, and it has arisen just after the departure of Lord Kṛṣṇa to His own abode, accompanied by religion, knowledge, etc. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the Age of Kali shall get light from this Purāṇa.
It is kind of senction that lord gives beacuse he gives free will to the jiva. When living entity is not turning towards krishna then as paramatma he acts like judge to senction based on previous karma. Also krishna gives us free-will so that we can act piously or impiously , if he doesnt give that choice then we will become like robots.
Please read BG 3,16 purport, BG 4.31
In tree life realizing our mistakes is close to impossible that is why human form of life is very rare because to understand God in human life is very easy. SB 5.5.1 says Lord Ṛṣabhadeva told His sons: My dear boys, of all the living entities who have accepted material bodies in this world, one who has been awarded this human form should not work hard day and night simply for sense gratification, which is available even for dogs and hogs that eat stool. One should engage in penance and austerity to attain the divine position of devotional service. By such activity, one’s heart is purified, and when one attains this position, he attains eternal, blissful life, which is transcendental to material happiness and which continues forever.
please read the purport also.
Krishna says in BG that one should do once duty and if Arjuna neglects his duty of punishing the miscreants than what will happen to the society, it is like some one goes to police complaining the misbehaviour of some politician with some ladies and the police says that we want peace so we will not involve in such work of punishing some one, now what do you think the police should do? punish the miscreants right. Same thing was told by Krishna to Arjuna.
At least we have never heard like this , kali yuga started by the misbehavior of a Brahmana boy called sringi who cursed Parikshit to die in 7 days for doing a small mistake(Parikshit mhj kept a dead snake over the neck of his father who did not welcome king).
Yes many of the thoughts of previous life are saved in our subconcious mind and we may remember in this life. Also some times mind mixes things and presents new thoughts to us eg we may see gold in day and we may see a mountain so in night we may get dream of golden mountain.
This world is made in such a way, the more you will have expectations from this world it will give you more frustration. Rather develop gratitude what God has given to you then you can always be happy. Just like we never pray for distress but still distress comes in this world, in the same way happiness will also come without looking for it.
Krishna says in BG 10.8 “ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo
mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate
iti matvā bhajante māṁ
budhā bhāva-samanvitāḥ” I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who perfectly know this engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts. So here krishna is saying that he is source of all material and spiritual energy. Also in SB 1st canto chapter 3 Suta gosawmi explains 28 different incarnations including krishna but intrestingly in 28th verse(ete cāṁśa-kalāḥ puṁsaḥ
kṛṣṇas tu bhagavān svayam
mṛḍayanti yuge yuge—) he says All of the above-mentioned incarnations are either plenary portions or portions of the plenary portions of the Lord, but Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the original Personality of Godhead. All of them appear on planets whenever there is a disturbance created by the atheists. The Lord incarnates to protect the theists. So that means krishna is source of all other incarnations. Like this there are many more references.
Also in dasavatar the sequence of appearance of incarnations of lord are given but it is not said that the previous incarnation is source of next incarnation.
Krishna has all six oplences in full, others also may have but not in full.
So in essence, try to not get cheated by others. Even soemthing like this happens, rather than thinking of takign revenge from others find out what best yuo can do in this situation to take your career ahead. You will see the people who were making fun of you will apreciate your hard-work eventually. We can be good man without getting fool and cheated by others. Do good to others but those who try to cheat you, use your intelligence to not get cheated. God protects those who protects themselves.
After the battlefield Ashwatthama was left as a chiranjeevi – He was left with his wound. Now people say he is still doing tapasya – every soul has a chance to reform and again engage in the service of Lord.
Nalakūvara and Maṇigrīva were great devotees of Lord Śiva, but because of material opulence they became so extravagant and senseless that one day they were enjoying with naked girls in a lake and shamelessly walking here and there. Suddenly Nārada Muni passed by, but they were so maddened by their wealth and false prestige that even though they saw Nārada Muni present, they remained naked and were not even ashamed. In other words, because of opulence and false prestige, they lost their sense of common decency. Of course, it is the nature of the material qualities that when one becomes very much opulent in terms of wealth and a prestigious position, one loses one’s sense of etiquette and does not care about anyone, even a sage like Nārada Muni. For such bewildered persons (ahaṅkāra-vimūḍhātmā), who especially deride devotees, the proper punishment is to be again stricken with poverty. The Vedic rules and regulations prescribe how to control the false sense of prestige by the practice of yama, niyama and so on (tapasā brahmacaryeṇa śamena ca damena ca). A poor man can be convinced very easily that the prestige of an opulent position in this material world is temporary, but a rich man cannot. Therefore Nārada Muni set an example by cursing these two persons, Nalakūvara and Maṇigrīva, to become dull and unconscious like trees. This was a fit punishment. But because Kṛṣṇa is always merciful, even though they were punished they were fortunate enough to see the Supreme Personality of Godhead face to face. Therefore the punishment given by Vaiṣṇavas is not at all punishment; rather, it is another kind of mercy. By the curse of the devarṣi, Nalakūvara and Maṇigrīva became twin arjuna trees and remained in the courtyard of mother Yaśodā and Nanda Mahārāja, waiting for the opportunity to see Kṛṣṇa directly. Lord Kṛṣṇa, by the desire of His devotee, uprooted these yamala-arjuna trees, and when Nalakūvara and Maṇigrīva were thus delivered by Kṛṣṇa after one hundred years of the devas, their old consciousness revived, and they offered Kṛṣṇa prayers suitable to be offered by demigods. Having thus gotten the opportunity to see Kṛṣṇa face to face, they understood how merciful Nārada Muni was, and therefore they expressed their indebtedness to him and thanked him. Then, after circumbulating the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, they departed for their respective abodes.
yes krishna says work is worship, but which work is worshipable(we will cover in chapter 17) , and what you should do while doing that work BG 8.7 (Therefore, Arjuna, you should always think of Me in the form of Kṛṣṇa and at the same time carry out your prescribed duty of fighting. With your activities dedicated to Me and your mind and intelligence fixed on Me, you will attain Me without doubt.)
Krishna also says in BG 9.34 (man-manā bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yājī māṁ namaskuru
mām evaiṣyasi yuktvaivam
ātmānaṁ mat-parāyaṇaḥ, Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, become My devotee, offer obeisances to Me and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.)
also krishna says about happiness of this world in BG 8.15 (mām upetya punar janma

But those who have surrendered unto Me can easily cross beyond it.)
