The Honourable MALCOLM TURNBULL MP
29 th PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA.
Part of the headline of The Australian, the national Australian newspaper, dated Friday February 16th 2018, reads:
“……PM IMPOSES SEX BAN”.
In human society, sex life is strictly meant for procreation, within the ties of the institution of marriage! Marriage and child rearing are very serious business lasting a very minimum of twenty years, if properly executed. Why should there not be a contractual arrangement, like any other business in life? The alternative is lust only, as the ruling principle and the devastating consequences, as we see in modern society. This is demoniac! And why should the state have to come to the rescue?
Sex life is NOT meant for whimsical, recreational enjoyment or otherwise. So the creator, Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, has ordained and decreed! The animals naturally and intuitively follow this regulation. So should the human animal and, with his higher intellectual faculties, devote his recreational time for the pursuance of self-realization instead. “Athato brahma jijnasa.” Sanskrit for: Now, in this human form of life, the opportunity for enquiry into the Supreme Absolute Truth presents itself. Please take advantage of the opportunity or you may come to regret such neglect, just as the criminal regrets his misbehaviour as soon as the prison cell door shuts on him.
Prime Minister Turnbull has imposed an immediate and total ban on sex between ministers and staffers. Thank you very much Mr. Turnbull, for your bold, loud and straightforward stance in these matters! I am confident that Shri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, has noticed your no-nonsense move with satisfaction. Please make this a rule for ALL Australian citizens to follow. At least in this particular respect, ALL Australian citizens deserve the same degree of respectability as government ministers. As a direct consequence, Australia will greatly advance on the path of strength, economic efficiency, morality, health, family stability, innocent children’s happiness and divine life. Australia will become a great world leader in divine life! Hare Krishna!
The last verse 18.78 of Bhagavad-Gita As It Is reads:
yatra yogeshvarah krishno
yatra partho dhanur-dharah
tatra shrir vijayo bhutir
dhruva nitir matir mama
yatra—where; yoga-ishvarah—the master of mysticism; krishnah—Lord Krishna; yatra—where; parthah—the son of Pritha; dhanuh-dharah—the carrier of the bow and arrow; tatra—there; shrih—opulence; vijayah—victory; bhutih—exceptional power; dhruva—certain; nitih—morality; matih mama—my opinion.
Wherever there is Krishna, the master of all mystics, and wherever there is Arjuna, the supreme archer, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. That is my opinion.
This is private secretary Sanjaya speaking to King Dhritarastra.
All glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of the international Hare Krishna movement (ISKCON), Institutor of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT) and Founder in 1944 of the Back to Godhead magazine (BTG)!
Strictly speaking, to be the world leader in divine life, one must follow three additional live style rules as follows:
2) No meat, fish or egg eating.
3) No gambling.
4) No intoxication. Includes abstention from coffee, tea and cigarettes etc…
These are the rules of brahminical life. These are the rules of the most advanced Aryan civilisation, originating in India, the land of spirituality par excellence. Anyone, from any ethnic background is welcome to join, provided he / she is willing to follow these four regulative yogic principles. Advancement of civilisation is not a matter of advancement in material sophistication. All material manifestation systematically undergo six kinds of changes: they appear or they are born, they grow, they stay for some time while producing by-products, they dwindle and ultimately disintegrate and disappear. Finished! All gone for ever! Why concentrate on the impermanent- ASAT? It will only bring frustration, nothing more. Why not concentrate on the permanent-SAT- instead? Advancement of civilisation is a matter of advancement of consciousness. Advancement of consciousness culminates in the development of spiritual consciousness. The ultimate spiritual consciousness is full God or Krishna consciousness.
Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, uses this word “arya” in Bhagavad-Gita As It Is 2.2. Under the circumstances, He uses the negative form of the word-anarya- best translated in English as non-aryan or as per the following word for word translation “persons who do not know the value of life”:
kutas tva kashmalam idam
Shri-bhagavan uvaca—the Supreme Personality of Godhead said; kutah—wherefrom; tva—unto you; kashmalam—dirtiness; idam—this lamentation; vishame—in this hour of crisis; samupasthitam—arrived; anarya—persons who do not know the value of life; jushtam—practiced by; asvargyam—which does not lead to higher planets; akirti—infamy; karam—the cause of; arjuna—O Arjuna.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear Arjuna, how have these impurities come upon you? They are not at all befitting a man who knows the value of life. They lead not to higher planets but to infamy.
In this age of Kali, or age of quarrel and hypocrisy, spiritual consciousness is best developed and cultivated through the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra as in:
HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA
KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE
HARE RAMA HARE RAMA
RAMA RAMA HARE HARE.
His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, New York City, 1965, the very best expert in the matter of self-realization, recommends the daily chanting of a minimum of 1728 mantras or “sixteen rounds” on japa mala beads. This takes about two hours. This represents two hours of one single person Krishna meditation. Krishna meditation can also be practiced in groups with melodious tunes and musical instruments, such as cymbals, in Sanskrit, “kartals”, and drums, in Sanskrit, “mridungas”. Other instruments are welcome. There are plenty of illustrations of the congregational chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra on youtube.com. A note of warning though: This form of congregational Krishna meditation is highly addictive and tends to be very, very blissful, very quickly. For the serious follower however, the latter cannot replace the former. It will represents the best investment of your time and energy you will ever make. Invoice value is zilch, nothing, zero. Please read His Divine Grace’s books for further information.
