‘So why is it so important?  Golokera prema dhana.  Because it is coming from Goloka Vrndavana.  This transcendental sound, Hare Krsna maha-mantraBhagavad-gitaSrimad Bhagavatam, they are coming from Goloka Vrndavana.  Just like you receive through radio machine news from a distant place, thousands and thousands of miles away.  Now the instruments have improved.  They are trying to get information from other planets also.  That’s nice.  But there is another machine which can give you information of the Goloka Vrndavana.  That machine is nothing manufactured by the manterial scientists.  But there is a machine what is that machine?  That machine is the guru-parampara.  Evam parampara-praptam imam rajarsayoh viduh.  If you receive the message by the guru-parampara.

The first guru is Krsna.  Next guru is Lord Brahma.  Next guru is Narada.  Next guru is Vyasadeva.  Next guru is Madhvacarya.  And so many others.  And their branches.  in this way, Caitanya Mahaprabhu.  Then the Goswamis.  then Srinivasa, Srinivasa Acarya, Narottama dasa Thakura.  In this way, the parampara is coming.  So this is the machine.  How can I understand this machine is correct?  Yes, it is correct.  How is it correct?  You can corroborate.  The Bhagavad-gita says, the original machine, Krsna, says, sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja.  So the same message is being broadcast in the Krsna consciousness movement.  What are we speaking?  We are speaking, “Give up everything.  Just surrender to Krsna”.  Is not that the same machine?  If you keep the words, the vibration of the machine the same, then it is the same machine.

You get the correct information.  Krsna is speaking – about Himself, about His abode, about the spiritual world, the activities.  Krsna is speaking everything in the Srimad-Bhagavata, in Bhagavad-gita.  And we don’t require to change unnecessarily.  if we present the same thing as it is, as we are presenting Bhagavad-gita as it is, then the machine is there.  You can get all the information.  There is no difficulty.  Just like you are getting by the present machine, radio machine, message from far, distant place.  Similarly, you can get all the information of the spiritual world by the proper machine.  The Bhagavad-gita received through the parampara, disciplic succession of bona fide spiritual masters.  It is not difficult’ – A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, Festival Lecture on Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami
