Srimad Bhagavatam 11.10.30 - Healthy Fear Which Help us to Come Closer to Krishna (download mp3)
by Radha Gopinath Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
mad bhayam kalpa-jivinam
brahmano ’pi bhayam matto
In all the planetary systems, from the heavenly to the hellish, and for all of the great demigods who live for one thousand yuga cycles, there is fear of Me in My form of time. Even Brahma, who possesses the supreme life span of 311,040,000,000,000 years, is also afraid of Me.
There are many statements throughout Vedic literature proving that even the great demigods fear the time potency of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Even in the heavenly planets there is no relief from the miseries of material life. No conditioned soul can live eternally, as clearly demonstrated by the deaths of Hiranyakasipu and other demons. Since even the demigods fear the time potency of the Personality of Godhead, one may easily conclude that Krsna is the Absolute Truth and that He is eternally the supreme controller of everything and everyone. Lord Krsna is the only real shelter.
