Responsibility – Freedom – Love (Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj)

Gurumaharaj in Berlin (April 2014) about freedom. And a particular fruit even higher than that. And the premise for both.

"Freedom is something like a fruit. You have like a very wonderful papaya fruit called Freedom. It's totally ripe and somewhere out there, but you don't know how to get there. How will I get this papaya? How will I deserve to get this Freedom? – Freedom... Libertad... Freiheit... It's a word that makes your chest enlarge. So this big Freedom papaya which is so high up, it has a certain restriction. What is the restriction to freedom? What do we have to accomplish in order to be able to deserve freedom? And is there a fruit even higher than Freedom? The key connection between yourself and Freedom, that is something called Spiritual Realization. It's called Responsibility."

"What's the fruit of responsibility? – Freedom, yes. And after freedom? – Love! You cannot get love if there is no freedom. You cannot get freedom if there is no assuming responsibility."
