His Holiness Sri Bhakti Vichar Vishnu Maharaj (Jt. Secretary – All India Sree Chaitanya Gaudiya Math (regd.)) finished his 24 day long tour to Europe, to spread the message of Transcendental Universal Divine love across Europe. He was invited by Sri Lemoine Guillaume (Willy) of Dijon. Accompanied by Sri Hariballabh Das, Maharaj ji is at present in Berlin, after successful programs at Paris, Rouene and Dijon (all in France).
Sri Lemoine Guillaume organized to public seminars at Dijon. People and devotees attended these seminars in large number to listen on topics ‘Attaining peace in the present times of chaos’ and ‘Successful life’. All were enchanted by the divine revelations by Sri Vishnu Maharaj.
Maharaj ji explained that in this material world everyone is working hard to attain peace and become successful. Everyone thinks that one will attain peace if one is successful in life. What is the measurement of success? Many people judge the success by the amount of wealth accumulated, by the number of residences, magnitude of business turnovers, etc. But has these given real peace to all? One spends his/her precious moments of life indulging in various activities to attain these. Many are able to attain those levels and many keep on trying.
One attain these levels of material success, because of ‘punya’ (good deeds) done in previous times. More and more ‘Punya’ we have, more and more it is easier to accumulate wealth, luxuries, etc. Therefore, we must keep on doing good deeds by helping others, showing compassion, etc.
Although some are able to attain high levels of luxuries of material world, but the real peace remain a distant dream for them as well, what to say of people who struggle to attain these luxuries. So, where to attain this eternal real peace.
Supreme Personality of Godhead is reservoir of peace and bliss. If we go to him, if we work hard to attain Him, if we spend our time to bring His attention upon us, then there is an absolute chance of attain the real eternal peace. Moreover, Supreme Personality of Godhead is Omnipotent. If we become successful in attaining Him, then we will not only get eternal peace but will get material luxuries alongwith.
In Sreemad Bhagavad Geeta, Supreme Personality of Godhead explains how can one attain Him. He says ‘Mam – ekam sharanam vraj’. i.e. surrender unto Me.
His Holiness Bhakti Vichar Vishnu Maharaj will bless the people of Berlin till 14th February. From Berlin he will be leaving for Prague, followed by Vienna.
