The Meaning of Phalena Pariciyate

ASK BVKS | August 30, 2011 |

English;

Question:

In Vedic literatures we see an emphasis of judging by the results, palena parichiyate, and this idea is more specifically highlighted in the biblical passage of Luke 6:44, where the first line states "A tree is identified by its fruit" This concept seems to be very deep, yet I do not properly understand it… Could you speak something on how to understand this principle? And how can we actually apply it, sometimes the result or fruit is hard to judge, or this process can give wrong results

This question has been answered by His Grace Gokula Candra Prabhu, a senior disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj upon Maharaj's request.

Question:

I have a doubt about usage of making films in Krishna conscious preaching. I have a desire to become a nice filmmaker and make some good films to entertain and enlighten people. But after knowing philosophy of Krishna consciousness, I am in a great confusion of how to live my rest of life. So can you please kindly clear my doubt.

Can a devotee learn to produce films or animation techniques and try to preach through media by making films like Ramayana, Mahabharata etc. in large scale productions, making nice devotional documentaries, biographies of elevated devotees? or doing such thing is just sense gratification for achieving my personal goal?

The Meaning of Pure Heart and the Source of Happiness

Question:

I have a small doubt can you just elucidate me what is the meaning of pure heart. What is inner soul and from where do we get real happiness?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikāsa Swami:

The meaning of a pure heart is one which is not covered by contamination. The nature of the soul is pure, but we come in contact with material energy due to our wrong desire to enjoy separately from Kṛṣṇa. Therefore we become… Yeah, that desire, that original desire (kāma), from that comes kāma, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, mātsarya – lust, anger, greed, pride, illusion, envy. These are various coverings on the soul. When these are removed, the soul is stated to be in a pure state, although by nature the soul is pure. So, when you say the inner soul, that means the soul not covered by these contaminations. Where do we get real happiness? Real happiness is Kṛṣṇa. So, in the pure state we can appreciate Kṛṣṇa. Real happiness is in Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
