1. Perfection in one minute

    (Melbourne, 1975) Madhudvisa das:  We have been here for many lifetimes performing sinful activities. So is it possible to counteract all those sinful activities in one lifetime or does it require many lifetimes?

    Srila Prabhupada:  One minute. That is Krishna consciousness movement. One minute. You are not reading Bhagavad-gita? What Krishna says? Sarva-dharman parityajya, mam ekam saranam vraja, aham tvam sarva-papebhyo, moksayisyami. “You surrender to Me, give up your all business. I will give you relief from all sinful reaction immediately.” So it requires one minute. “My dear Krishna, I was forgotten, now I understand. I fully surrender unto You.” Then you will become immediately free from all sinful reactions. Without any reservation, without any politics. If you fully surrender, Krishna is assuring, aham tvam sarva-papebhyo, moksayisyami ma sucah. He reassures, “Don’t worry whether I will be able to give you relief from all reactions.” Ma sucah. “Finished, guaranteed. You do this.” So how much time it requires to surrender to Krishna? Immediately you can do that. Mam evaisyasi asamsayam, “Then you come to Me without any doubt.” Everything is there. Krishna has given everything fully. If we accept it, then life is very simple. There is no difficulty.
