Bhagavad - Gītā – 18:65



man-manā bhava mad-bhakto
mām evaiṣyasi satyaḿ te
pratijāne priyo 'si me

SYNONYM

mat-manāḥ - thinking of Me;  bhava - just become;  mat-bhaktaḥ - My devotee; mat-yājī - My worshiper; mām - unto Me; namaskuru - offer your obeisances; mām - unto Me; eva - certainly; eṣyasi - you will come; satyam - truly; te - to you; pratijāne - I promise; priyaḥ - dear; asi - you are; me - to Me.

TRANSLATION

Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend.

PURPORT

The most confidential part of knowledge is that one should become a pure devotee of Krishna and always think of Him and act for Him.

One should not become an official meditator. Life should be so molded that one will always have the chance to think of Kṛishṇa.

One should always act in such a way that all his daily activities are in connection with Kṛishṇa.

He should arrange his life in such a way that throughout the twenty-four hours he cannot but think of Kṛishṇa.

And the Lord's promise is that anyone who is in such pure Kṛiṣhṇa consciousness will certainly return to the abode of Kṛishṇa, where he will be engaged in the association of Kṛishṇa face to face.

This most confidential part of knowledge is spoken to Arjuna because he is the dear friend of Kṛiṣhṇa. Everyone who follows the path of Arjuna can become a dear friend to Kṛiṣhṇa and obtain the same perfection as Arjuna.

These words stress that one should concentrate his mind upon Kṛiṣhṇa — the very form with two hands carrying a flute, the bluish boy with a beautiful face and peacock feathers in His hair.

There are descriptions of Kṛiṣhṇa found in the Brahma-saḿhitā and other literatures. One should fix his mind on this original form of Godhead, Kṛiṣhṇa.

One should not even divert his attention to other forms of the Lord. The Lord has multi-forms as Viṣṇu, Nārāyaṇa, Rāma, Varāha, etc., but a devotee should concentrate his mind on the form that was present before Arjuna.

Concentration of the mind on the form of Kṛiṣhṇa constitutes the most confidential part of knowledge, and this is disclosed to Arjuna because Arjuna is the most dear friend of Kṛiṣhṇa, the Lord.

15 Most Amazing Predictions for Kali Yuga

15 Most Amazing Predictions for Kali Yuga from the Bhagavata Purana


The following 15 predictions about the present Kali Yuga, written 5,000 years ago by sage Vedavyasa, are amazing because they appear so accurate. Prophecies of Kali Yuga.

In the last canto of the Bhagavata Purana there is a list of predictions and prophecies about the dark times for the present age of Kali Yuga. The following 15 predictions, written 5,000 years ago by sage Vedavyasa, are amazing because they appear so accurate. Despite the negative tone of these prophecies, there is still one bright spot for all of us, which is mentioned at the end.

Prediction 1:

Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength and memory will all diminish day by day because of the powerful influence of the age of Kali.

Prediction 2:

In Kali Yuga, wealth alone will be considered the sign of a man's good birth, proper behaviour and fine qualities. And law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one's power.

Prediction 3:

Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one's expertise in sex, and a man will be known as a brahmana just by his wearing a thread.

Prediction 4:

A person's spiritual position will be ascertained merely according to external symbols, and on that same basis people will change from one spiritual order to the next. A person's propriety will be seriously questioned if he dos not earn a good living. And one who is very clever at juggling words will be considered a learned scholar.

Prediction 5:

A person will be judged unholy if he does not have money, and hypocrisy will be accepted as virtue. Marriage will be arranged simply by verbal agreement, and a person will think he is fit to appear in public if he has merely taken a bath.

Prediction 6:

A sacred place will be taken to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a distance, and beauty will be thought to depend on one's hairstyle. Filling the belly will become the goal of life, and one who is audacious will be accepted as truthful. He who can maintain a family will be regarded as an expert man, and the principles of religion will be observed only for the sake of reputation.

Prediction 7:

As the earth thus becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of their social classes shows himself to be the strongest will gain political power.

Prediction 8:

Harassed by famine and excessive taxes, people will resort to eating leaves, roots, flesh, wild honey, fruits, flowers and seeds. Struck by drought, they will become completely ruined.

Prediction 9:

The citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain and snow. They will be further tormented by quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease and severe anxiety.

Prediction 10:

The maximum duration of life for human beings in Kali Yuga will become 50 years.

Men will no longer protect their elderly parents.

Prediction 12:

In Kali-yuga men will develop hatred for each other even over a few coins. Giving up all friendly relations, they will be ready to lose their own lives and kill even their own relatives.

Prediction 13:

Uncultured men will accept charity on behalf of the Lord and will earn their livelihood by making a show of austerity and wearing a mendicant's dress. Those who know nothing about religion will mount a high seat and presume to speak on religious principles.

Prediction 14:

Servants will abandon a master who has lost his wealth, even if that master is a saintly person of exemplary character. Masters will abandon an incapacitated servant, even if that servant has been in the family for generations. Cows will be abandoned or killed when they stop giving milk.

Prediction 15:

Cities will be dominated by thieves, the Vedas will be contaminated by speculative interpretations of atheists, political leaders will virtually consume the citizens, and the so-called priests and intellectuals will be devotees of their bellies and genitals.

Despite all of these dark prophecies, there is one good quality in this age of Kali yuga:  Although Kali-yuga is an ocean of faults, there is still one good quality about this age: simply by chanting the names of Krishna, one can become free from material bondage and be promoted to the transcendental kingdom."

So let us take advantage of this special spiritual gift given during the dark times of Kali yuga to quickly raise ourselves spiritually through chanting of God's holy names.
