Kala Pangeni @ Jhankar Sangeet Sambad by Subas Regmi

It is said: asya mahato bhutasya nisvasitam etad yad rg-vedo yajur-vedah samavedo 'tharvangirasah. "The four Vedas- -namely the Rg Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda--are all emanations from the breathing of the great Personality of Godhead." (Brhad-aranyaka Upanisad 4.5.11) The Lord, being omnipotent, can speak by breathing air, as it is confirmed in the Brahma-samhita, for the Lord has the omnipotence to perform through each of His senses the actions of all other senses. In other words, the Lord can speak through His breathing, and He can impregnate by His eyes. In fact, it is said that He glanced over material nature and thus fathered all living entities. After creating or impregnating the conditioned souls in the womb of material nature, He gave His directions in the Vedic wisdom as to how such conditioned souls can return home, back to Godhead. We should always remember that the conditioned souls in material nature are all eager for material enjoyment. But the Vedic directions are so made that one can satisfy one's perverted desires, then return to Godhead, having finished his so-called enjoyment.
It is a chance for the conditioned souls to attain liberation; therefore the conditioned souls must try to follow the process of yajna by becoming Krsna conscious. Even those who cannot follow the Vedic injunctions may adopt the principles of Krsna consciousness, and that will take the place of performance of Vedic yajnas, or karmas. TEXT 16 evam pravartitam cakram nanuvartayatiha yah aghayur indriyaramo mogham partha sa jivati SYNONYMS evam--thus prescribed; pravartitam--established by the Vedas; cakram-- cycle; na--does not; anuvartayati--adopt; iha--in this life; yah--one who; agha-ayuh--life full of sins; indriya-aramah--satisfied in sense gratification; mogham--useless; partha--O son of Prtha (Arjuna); sah-- one who does so; jivati--lives. TRANSLATION My dear Arjuna, a man who does not follow this prescribed Vedic system of sacrifice certainly leads a life full of sin, for a person delighting only in the senses lives in vain. PURPORT The mammonist philosophy of work very hard and enjoy sense gratification is condemned herein by the Lord.
