“What Is The Eternal, Constitutional Function Of The Jiva?/Soul?”
Making A “Case” for the Reconstitution of Srila Prabhupada’s “Mission”
Segment 054: Chapter 6,
“Then how can there possibly be no difference between Aryans and Yavanas from the Absolute point of view?”
The scriptures have affirmed this lucidly.
“O best of the Bhrgus, sri-Krishna Nama (Name) delivers all men.”
According to this verse, Yavanas and all other human beings have an equal opportunity to attain the supreme goal of life. Those who are devoid of nitya-sukrti are known as two-legged animals, because they have no faith in Krishna-nama. Such people have no human qualities, even though they have attained a human birth. It is said in the Mahabharata:
“O King, one whose past pious deeds are very meager cannot have faith in maha-prasada, in Sri Govinda, in sri-Krishna Nama, or in the Vaisnavas.”
Nitya-sukrti is great sukrti that purifies the jiva.
Naimittika-sukrti is insignificant sukrti that does not have the power to awaken sraddha toward transcendental objects.
In this material world there are four transcendental objects that awaken spiritual consciousness;
- Maha-prasada (the remnants of food and other articles offered to Krishna),
- Krishna, Himself,
- Krishna-nama (chanting the Holy Names of Krishna),
- and Vaisnavas.
