Srimad Bhagavatam 11.06.17 - Importance of Hearing Hari Katha (download mp3)
by Deen Gauranga Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty

 SB 11.6.17
tat tasthusas ca jagatas ca bhavan adhiso
 yan mayayottha-guna-vikriyayopanitan
arthaƱ jusann api hrsika-pate na lipto
 ye ’nye svatah parihrtad api bibhyati sma

O Lord, You are the supreme creator of this universe and the ultimate controller of all moving and nonmoving living entities. You are Hrsikesa, the supreme controller of all sensory activity, and thus You never become contaminated or entangled in the course of Your supervision of the infinite sensory activities within the material creation. On the other hand, other living entities, even yogis and philosophers, are disturbed and frightened simply by remembering the material objects that they have supposedly renounced in their pursuit of enlightenment.

The Supreme Lord Krsna is within the heart of every conditioned soul and guides the living entity in the pursuit and experience of sense gratification. The disappointing results of such activities gradually convince the conditioned soul to reject material life and surrender again to the Lord within his heart. Lord Krsna is never affected by the futile attempts of the living entities to enjoy His illusory energy. For the Personality of Godhead there is no possibility of fear or disturbance, because nothing is ultimately separate from Him.
