What is bhava-roga? It is punarapi-jananam punarapi-maranam, punanapi janane jatare gamanam. Taking birth and dying and repeatedly entering the womb of another mother to suffer in this material world, is called bhava-roga. So, the glories of Krsna are the topmost medicine for these conditioned souls. Listen to the pastimes of Krsna from such Mahapurususas who don’t have any trsna, or desire for this material world. The hari-katha they speak is the best medicine for curing this disease of material existence. This medicine is unfailing. Who will not listen to the hari-katha spoken from such personalities? Those, who have a desire for samsara should listen. Those, who have developed detachment to samsara should also listen. Those, who have developed pure devotion at the lotus feet of Krsna will also listen. The liberated personalities will also listen. Even those who have attained Goloka Vrndavana listen to the pastimes of Krsna. But, who doesn’t listen? Those who are atma-ghati don’t listen. Atma-ghati means one who kills himself.

Still, the advertisements are being presented, and the foolish people who are captivated by them smoke cigarettes to become cool. This is māyā. One who is a little intelligent, however, will immediately see the contradiction in the advertisement: "This advertisement is claiming I can become cool by smoking cigarettes? What is this nonsense?" Similarly, an intelligent person can understand māyā's tricks and see the contradictions in all her allurements...
What I speak is a very , very serious, deep and subtle philosophy. It is not superfluous. This sisyatva, discipleship, is eternal. I should be disciplined eternally. The guru inflicts discipline on me. To remain a disciple means to remain under discipline. Unless he catches hold of my ear and slaps me, how can I become humble? How can I surrender or dedicate myself?"
