Srimad Bhagvatam 11.15.15 - How Krishna's Mystic Potencies is all Powerful (download mp3)
by Krishna Chandra Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
visnau try-adhisvare cittam
sa isitvam avapnoti
One who places his consciousness on Visnu, the Supersoul, the prime mover and Supreme Lord of the external energy consisting of three modes, obtains the mystic perfection of controlling other conditioned souls, their material bodies and their bodily designations.
We should remember that mystic perfection never enables a living entity to challenge the supremacy of the Personality of Godhead. In fact, one cannot obtain such perfections without the mercy of the Supreme Lord; thus one’s controlling power can never disturb the plan of Lord Krsna. One is allowed to exhibit mystic control only within the confines of the law of God, and even a great yogi who transgresses the law of God by his so-called mystic opulences will be severely punished, as revealed in the story of Durvasa Muni cursing Ambarisa Maharaja.
