Can't make it to the hospital in time ...

[PADA: Yep, as a matter of fact, Krishna makes amazing miracles -- like this one -- happening full time all the time. Its also a little sobering to realize that we all went through this process ourselves many, many times. That is why the message of Srila Prabhupada is so important, if we are to become freed of this process of repetition of birth and death, we need to surrender to Krishna. ys pd]

Beyond birth and death ....

srnvatam sva-kathah krsnah
hrdy antah-stho hy abhadrani
vidhunoti suhrt satam
[SB 1.2.17]

When you begin to hear about Krsna, srnvatam sva-kathah krsnah, so Krsna is within your heart. He immediately becomes alert. Oh, this man, this human being, is now hearing." Srnvatam sva..., punya-sravana-kirtanah. If you simply hear, even if you do not understand what it is being spoken...

Just like the children. They do not understand anything, but they are hearing. They are sitting. They are hearing. Or some woman, they do not understand I am speaking in English. But because they are hearing, it is punya-sravana-kirtanah, they are acquiring it piety. Acquiring. 

This is called ajnata-sukrti, piety acquired without knowledge, ajnata-sukrti. Punya-sravana-kirtanah. Srnvatam sva-kathah krsnah punya-sravana-kirtanah. Sravana-kirtana. One is hearing and one is chanting. Both of them becoming pious. Punya-sravana-kirtanah. Hrdy antah-sthah... And the more you become pious in this way, then all the dirty things within your heart will be cleansed. Ceto-darpana-marjanam [Cc. Antya 20.12].

Therefore Krsna here says, te 'pi ca atitaranti eva mrtyum. He can also conquer over mrtyu. What to conquer over mrtyu, he can conquer over Ajita, who is never conquered by anyone. Ajita jito 'py asi.

So these things are there. We should take advantage of the sastras, Vedic knowledge. It is India's property. Everything was cultivated in India, but because andha yathandhair upaniyamanah [SB 7.5.31], our rascal leaders, they are leading these andhas, they are not interested. They are not interested. They are now interested how to eat meat and drink wine. Very horrible condition of India. Those who are responsible persons, they should take note of it and try to spread Krsna consciousness movement as far as possible. That will be beneficial for all the people in general and the preachers preachers also. This is our movement. Thank you very much. Hare Krsna. (end)
