Thinking No One An Enemy

Posted on September 29, 2013 by admin-vasanti

Ai??If anyone is insulting you, if anyone is beating you or abusing you in any way, donai??i??t think him an enemy. Your activities are your enemy. So, how should your activities be from now on and in the future? Do not criticize, do not offend, do not do anything wrong. Otherwise, your activities will return and cause you suffering. In this world, no one is your enemy.

AsrAi?? NA?rada GosvA?mAi?? used to go to Kaa??sa MahA?rA?ja, and Kaa??sa used to think, ai???He is my guru.ai??? After that NA?rada would to go to Vasudeva MahA?rA?ja, and he also used to think, ai???He is my guru.ai??? NA?rada a?sa??i once went to Kaa??sa and said, ai???Oh, why are you waiting? Why are you not killing all the sons of VA?sudeva? When they will come collectively, what will you do? I went to KailA?sa, and I was present in the council of all the demigods when they were making a conspiracy and planning how to kill you. The demigods have now taken birth in the Yadu and Va?i??a??a?i??i dynasties, and they will kill you if you are not alert.ai??? After this, when he went to Vasudeva MahA?rA?ja, he said, ai???Oh, donai??i??t worry. Your bad times have gone. Now, very soon, the eighth son of DevakAi?? will kill Kaa??sa. So wait a little; wait a little. Donai??i??t feel so weak.ai??? NA?rada a?sa??i knew everything. So, try to do bhajana always, not thinking, ai???He insulted me. He is my enemy. He is my friend.ai??? Donai??i??t be like this. [See Endnote]

The only friends are Ka?i??a??a?i??a and guru. It is very hard, very rare, to find a real devotee, who is a real friend, and who, without any desire for personal gain, will do good to you and always think of your welfare. Your wife, sons, and friends will always bluff you, and they will try to enjoy their own sense gratification ai??i?? not for you, not so that you will be happy. Try to know these truths.

Wealth also cannot save you. Be one-pointed to AsrAi?? Ka?i??a??a?i??a, and then try to be very happy, without any problem. The only problem is, ai???Oh, how can I attain Ka?i??a??a?i??a? Oh, where is Vrajendra-nandana (AsrAi?? Ka?i??a??a?i??a, the son of the King of Vraja)? Where is Vrajendra-nandana? Where is RA?dhikA??ai???

Endnote: [ “ If there is some incident and I claim that no one is cooperating withAi??me or no one will work with me, that is my defect, not theirs. The Vaia??a?i??avaAi??devotee must think like this. We should not find fault with others andAi??criticize and go away, that is not the Vaia??a?i??ava way. Better we should alwaysAi??be willing to offer all respects to others, and consider them as our superiorsAi??always.”

    Its true. By this way we can inquire ourselves more and hence will be helpful for self realization.
