Watch this video on YouTube.

Lecture given by Gunagrahi dasa Goswami on Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 7, Chapter 10, Texts 36-38.  The video starts with about 2min 30sec of the end of Guru Puja kirtan.  The lecture covers preaching in ways that attract people to Krishna Consciousness.  Some devotees share their initial reaction to meeting the devotees for the first time.

The audio of the other speakers is a bit quiet.  I did my best to increase the volume, but it is still hard to hear.  You may wish to listen with headphones to hear those sections better.

TRANSLATION

Being cursed by the brahmanas, the same two associates took birth again as Kumbhakarna and the ten-headed Ravana. These two Rakshasas were killed by Lord Ramacandra’s extraordinary power.

Text 37

TRANSLATION

Pierced by the arrows of Lord Ramacandra, both Kumbhakarna and Ravana lay on the ground and left their bodies, fully absorbed in thought of the Lord, just as they had in their previous births as Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakasipu.

Text 38

TRANSLATION

They both took birth again in human society as Sisupala and Dantavakra and continued in the same enmity toward the Lord. It is they who merged into the body of the Lord in your presence.

tav ihatha punar jatau
sisupala-karusha-jau
harau vairanubandhena
pasyatas te samiyatuh

TRANSLATION

They both took birth again in human society as Sisupala and Dantavakra and continued in the same enmity toward the Lord. It is they who merged into the body of the Lord in your presence.

PURPORT

Vairanubandhena. Acting like the Lord’s enemy is also beneficial for the living entity. Kamad dveshad bhayat snehad. Whether in lusty desire, anger, fear or envy of the Lord, somehow or other, as recommended by Srila Rupa Gosvami (tasmat kenapy upayena), one should become attached to the Supreme Personality of Godhead and ultimately achieve the goal of returning home, back to Godhead. What, then, is to be said of one who is related to the Supreme Personality of Godhead as a servant, friend, father, mother or conjugal lover?
