jo bhi aye jaye vah govind radhe, mayadheen mayateet sab hi bata de
Part - 1
There are two kinds of people in the world – those souls under the bondage of maya, mayadheen and Saints who are beyond maya, mayateet. Saints are very few and mayic souls are more than 99.9% of the total. Whether Saint or soul, whoever comes into this world, one day must go.

A Saint leaves according to his own will. A maya-bound soul is a prisoner and is taken away. You don’t remember from your previous birth how much pain you experienced when you left your body at the time of death. A person thinks, “Oh! My father! My son! My daughter! My house! I have to leave all this? And I’m going alone? What is happening to me?” This pain cannot be explained. So one must leave this world and this applies to everyone. 

Even the time when Supreme God descends on this Earth is fixed. When that time arrives, Yamaraja, the god of death respectfully approaches the Lord and says, “My Lord, Your time has come. I am only reminding You. If You wish to remain longer, please do so. I am only doing my duty.” In the same way, Yamaraja also appears before a Saint at this time and says, “If it is your wish, please stay longer. I am just reminding you that the time fixed for your leaving has come.”

Saints do not violate God’s laws.  We see that Jagadguru Shankaracharya left this world at the age of thirty-two.  Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu left at the age of forty-eight. Some leave at the age of fifty; some at the age of eighty. There is no fixed age for a Saint to leave, rather a Saint’s prarabdha or destiny due to his past actions also determines the time of his leaving.

So just as souls are bound to undergo their destiny, Saints also undergo their destiny. The difference is that if the Saint’s son dies or all his wealth or property is stolen, he remains ever blissful, “My Lord! This is only your desire. Please do as you wish!” We on the other hand, mourn these losses with great pain, “Oh! My son left this world!” Yes, but everyone knows that whoever comes into this world must leave this world.  Don’t you also know this?

You may not have studied the Vedas and scriptures, but just have a look at the world around you. You see a child dying before his father. You see these things daily, so why don’t you accept it? This is the state of our intellect. We see these things but we do not accept them. We think, “I’m not going to die. I’m only fifty years old!” But now you have become eighty years old. “So what! I’m not going to die now.” If you pretend you are going to wring the neck of a person who is so elderly he can no longer sit up, or a person who is terminally ill, they would both shout, “Hey! What are you doing? I don’t want to die!” If you say, “But I want to put you out of your misery,” they will say, “So what! Let me suffer.”

So those who come into this world must leave. Saints leave according to their own will and souls who leave must return to this world. As long as a soul has not been liberated from maya, he must return to this material jail. What kind of form one receives is a separate point. The one who has practiced devotion and wholeheartedly rendered service to God and Saint will obtain a human form. The one who has merely satisfied his senses and wholeheartedly absorbed himself in the world will go into a lower birth. So whoever comes into this world must leave, regardless of whether it is a soul, a Saint or even Supreme God when He descends. 

Shri Krishna remained on this Earth for 125 years, Lord Rama remained on this Earth for 11,000 years and Lord Narsingh remained for only ten minutes! But no matter how long anyone remains on this Earth, he will have to go eventually. You should keep remembering this philosophy and be prepared. Do not look to your age and think you are still young. Remain alert all the time. A person is driving in the city. On the road there are also many other vehicles. He remains extremely alert – what is behind him, what is ahead of him, what is happening to his left, what is on his right. He also has to remember the way and his destination. He keeps all this in mind because if he makes the smallest mistake he will have an accident.

Remain ever vigilant because you could go at any moment. And what we receive after death is determined by what we are emotionally attached to at the time of our death. If you have your father in mind at the time of your death, you must go to that father afterwards. If that father is reborn as a dog, that will also be your destiny.
