1. How to be free from Yamaraja’s judgment

    Yamaraja’s business is to see how much sinful this living entity is, and he is offered a similar body. Karmana daiva-netrena [SB 3.31.1].

    You will be judged after your death, every one of us. Of course, if he takes Krsna consciousness seriously, then the path is automatic. Automatically you go back to home, back to Godhead. There is no question of judgment. Judgment is for the criminals, the rascals, who are not Krsna conscious. But if you become Krsna conscious, even if you cannot finish the job in this life, even if you fall, still, you will be given another chance of human body, to begin where you ended, to begin from the point where you fell down.

    Therefore svalpam apy asya dharmasya trayate mahato bhayat. If you have taken to Krsna consciousness, try to execute it very seriously, means to follow the rules and regulation and chant Hare Krsna. That’s all. Five things: no illicit sex, no gambling, no meat-eating… We don’t prohibit sex, but illicit sex is most sinful. Most sinful. Unfortunately, they are so rascals, one sex to another, another sex to another, another sex… That is maya’s illusion, influence. But if you stick to Krsna… Mam eva ye prapadyante mayam etam taranti te [Bg 7.14].

    If you catch up Krsna’s lotus feet very tightly, then you will not fall down. But if you make a show of so-called brahmacari, so-called grhastha or so-called sannyasi, then you will fall down. We are experiencing that. Then you must fall down. Krsna will not tolerate a defaulter, a pseudo devotee. Maya is very strong. Immediately capture him: “Come on. Why you are here? Why you are in this Society? Get out.” That is Yamaraja’s duty.

    But if you remain in Krsna consciousness, Yamaraja will not touch you. Your death is stopped from the point where you begin Krsna consciousness. Your death is stopped. Nobody is prepared to die. That is a fact. You may say, I may say, “No, I am not afraid of death.” That is another rascaldom. Everyone is afraid of death, and nobody wants to die. That is a fact. But if you are serious about that thing, that “I shall stop my process of death, dying process,” then it is Krsna consciousness.
