The Story of the Cooked Frog

08/09/2020 1 0

It is the story of a scientific experiment they did with some frogs. It was to test their reflex reactions on heat, so they took one frog, and they have thrown it into hot water. It immediately jumped out as soon as it touched the hot water. So, then they lowered the temperature, and they have thrown him again inside, so it also immediately jumped out. So they repeated this experiment and every time they lowered the temperature of the water a little bit, so on end, the frog remained in the water.

      Next part of the experiment was they put the frog in one big glass container. The water in the container was very cold, So the container had lovely green leaves, nice humidity, etc. So the frog jumped into the water and out, it was too cold, then when they increased the temperature the frog became happy Then when it was sitting in the water they increased the temperature of water and air. The frog still felt comfortable. They increased more and more so then the frog became nervous, it jumped in and out. The water and air became hotter. So the frog felt more distress and first was trying to find relief in the water and then outside on the air. So finally he was so exhausted that it just remained in the water and was cooked to death.

        The moral of this story is that when Maya vigorously attacks the devotees, they react immediately, she may attack more and more. Still, the devotee can react immediately again and again. So then sometimes Maya is causing severe distress as the frog fell in the cold water and the devotee is trying to find some shelter. Maya is providing a pleasant environment for all kinds of material sense gratification.

        Hmm, then we think I was fighting against Maya, so let me accept just a little bit of Maya, so that she will be happy and she will not push more, I am still a fixed up devotee, and I am still chanting, I will only watch tv, some excellent movies. Then I will also associate with some lovely people and talk about mundane topics since they are also devotees only they dont know yet. I will go to cinemas and disco, since there I can also met people for preaching, and I can still think of Krishna. When the lady sings:" I need you, I love you!" I will think she is singing this for Krishna, so no problem. I can eat some excellent vegetarian food, pizza in a restaurant or some lovely cake. I eat all the years prasadam, and I am a big devotee so I can also offer this to Krishna.

       I will instead chant with taste then just 16 rounds mechanically. I will not be a beginner devotee and look at sadhana; I will start to love Krishna. I will practice spontaneous sadhana. I will read Radha Krishna's pastimes. Also here and there I can have some terrible activities since this is normal for a human.

       Like this we feel very comfortable in the shelter Maya is providing. The temperature of lust, greed, material desires is increasing, and we are trying to satisfy them jumping here and there like the frog was jumping from water to the land. But the material energy is expanding her influence, and so the bewildered devotee tries to find the shelter in so many material things. Due to attachment to material things and forgetfulness of his real cover, he suffers exceedingly. Completely bewildered of his purpose of life, he starts to criticise his well-wishers his spiritual master and the Vaishnavas and the pure philosophy of Krishna Consciousness. He becomes angrier and angrier and cultivates the hatred towards those who want to help him. He rejects his guru and takes shelter of duplicity and insincere. Finally, the poor fellow finds his end cooked in the fangs of Maya in the same way the frog was cooked due to his foolishness.
