The hammer to immediately finish everything

    Posted on July 15, 2017

The blacksmith's method and the goldsmith's method. The goldsmith, he has got a small hammer — tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk,-tuk-tuk. And the blacksmith has a big hammer — dumh, finish. [laughter] So our is blacksmith method. We take the big hammer of bhakti-yoga and finish all, everything. You see? We won't have to undergo so many tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk.

And there is no possibility. If I say, "Now you have to become completely brahmacari. You have to sit down in the forest and stay at right angle and press your nose for six months," who will follow? There is no possibility. This tuk-tuk method, there is no possibility. We have to get this hammer, blacksmith hammer of Krsna consciousness, and immediately finish everything. This is Kali-yuga. Simply one... Who can do this? This one hammer, finishing all sinful reaction, who can do this? Vasudeva-parayanah. Bhaktya vasudeva-parayanah. By devotional service one has to become vasudeva-parayana, devotee of Lord Vasudeva. That's all. That is being taught here: how to become lover of Vasudeva.
