H.H Bhakti Charu Swami gave Evening class in Brisbane at HG Janakraj Prabhu's residence on his birthday on 26th December, 2012

Excerpts from the class.
  • Krsna consciousness should be exciting, enriching, enlivening. 
  • How many come to listen to classes is not important how receptive they are is more important.
  • energy + energetic together: Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
  • energy and energetic separate: Radha & Krsna.
  • In Goloka Navadwip they are singing the glories of Krsna, they are always doing Nama Sankirtana.
  • Srila Prabhupada created Iskcon for us so that we have the perfect situation to practice our spiritual lives.
  • Wherever we go we have devotees to associate with, worship alongwith, to read, chant and dance with. Therefore because of Iskcon we have these facilities.
  • When spiritual master leaves, the family is still there, this is a family of Iskcon, we are never alone.
  • Never think that Srila Prabhupada has left, he is always there. He is there in vapu and vani. Real aspect of spiritual master is vani or his instructions. 
  • When you are following spiritual master's instructions you are with him.
  • When you are serving his vani then you are actually serving your spiritual master.
  • Then someday if we become eligible to enter into the spiritual world then we will again be with the spiritual master. 
  • Spiritual master actually allures us to the spiritual world. When you serve the vani aspect, then you become qualified to enter the spiritual world.
  • Death can come at any time, we must always be prepared. No regrets for the past always looking forward. 
  • A devotee's prayer is, "O my dear Krsna, please never let me forget you."
  • Point from Nectar of Devotion which struck Guru Maharaj and he accepted Srila Prabhupada as his spiritual master.
  1. Five kinds of liberation and Guru Maharaj knew only the negative one.
  2. God is a person.
  • Generally a devotee doesn't want to come back. Once bitten, twice shy.
  • But to be a devotee also means to be surrendered to Krsna's will. I don't have any preference, or desire. If Krsna wants I will come back. 
The class was followed by a staging of Ujjain DVD and then a sumptuous feast cooked by Sripati Prabhu, Vrindavaneshwari Mataji and others constituting Pizzas, Pastas and loads of ice cream.
