” Bhakti Charu Swami giving a Srimad Bhagavatam lecture in the Dallas temple. This is a brief overview of the story of the demon Hiranyakasipu, some memories of Srila Prabhupada, and how Krishna loves you.
Apologies for the spotty audio at times, my close mic recorder ran out of power and so I had to rely on the camera’s audio. Also, since this is a long lecture, the video is blocky due to compression.

Sri Närada Muni continued: After speaking these words to Hiranyakasipu, Lord Brahmä, the original being of this universe, who is extremely powerful, sprinkled transcendental, infallible, spiritual water from his kamaëòalu upon Hiranyakasipu’s body, which had been eaten away by ants and moths. Thus he enlivened Hiranyakasipu.
Lord Brahmä is the first created being within this universe and is empowered by the Supreme Lord to create. Tene brahma hådä ya ädi-kavaye: [SB 1.1.1] the ädi deva, or ädi-kavi—the first living creature—was personally taught by the Supreme Personality of Godhead through the heart. There was no one to teach him, but since the Lord is situated within Brahmä’s heart, Brahmä was educated by the Lord Himself. Lord Brahmä, being especially empowered, is infallible in doing whatever he wants. This is the meaning of the word amogha rädhasä. He desired to restore Hiraëyakaçipu’s original body, and therefore, by sprinkling transcendental water from his waterpot, he immediately did so.
