Be Self Satisfied Keeping Krishna in the Centre

Srimad Bhagavatam 10.52.31-32 - Be Self Satisfied Keeping Krishna in the Centre (download mp3)
by Jagannath Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty

SB 10.52.31
santusto yarhi varteta
 brahmano yena kenacit
ahiyamanah svad dharmat
 sa hy asyakhila-kama-dhuk

When a brahmana is satisfied with whatever comes his way and does not fall away from his religious duties, those very religious principles become his desire cow, fulfilling all his wishes.

SB 10.52.32
asantusto ’sakrl lokan
 apnoty api suresvarah
akiƱcano ’pi santustah
 sete sarvanga-vijvarah

An unsatisfied brahmana wanders restlessly from one planet to another, even if he becomes King of heaven. But a satisfied brahmana, though he may possess nothing, rests peacefully, all his limbs free of distress.

Those who are unsatisfied feel distress throughout their body, becoming subject to many diseases. A satisfied brahmana, however, though he may possess nothing, is peaceful and calm, and there is no distress within his body or mind.
