    Sri Gurvastakam

    I want to give an explanation of Sri Guru – what are the symptoms of a bona fide guru – and to show you examples that have been given in the epics [Vedic scriptures]. You can apply this to your own guru. Our Sri Guru is akhanda-guru-tattva, Sri Baladeva Prabhu or Sri Nityananda Prabhu, so all teachings should be applied to him and to others who are following this... Read More

  • Our Master - His Life

    A most endearing hallmark of his preaching was the heart-stealing affection he showed to all. As an uttama-bhāgavata, he entered the deepest recesses of the heart to give the unmistakable reassurance that he is one's eternal well-wisher. The depth of his affection is a tangible reality for all who have experienced it, and this in itself bears subjective testimony to the fact that he was a true emissary of the Supreme Lord.

  • Namah

    As long as Śrīla Gurudeva, the beloved of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, is physically manifest, it is wise to render intimate service to him, and thereby attain perfection. But if we are not able to attain perfection because we have failed to develop attachment to him, attachment wherein we consider him to be the lord of our heart; if we have failed to serve him by giving him our full heart in complete sincerity and selflessness, then we have certainly been deprived...

  • The Most Compassionate

    Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is certainly more intelligent than each and every one of us, and He knows how to make the fallen souls of Kali-yuga best understand His high-level teachings. Indeed, His teachings are comprehensible by all. Still, our misfortune prevails. First, we do not accept His teachings. Second, to impress others with our prowess we mix something of our own with them...

tn srila bv narayanaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Māhārāja

You are supremely fortunate, and therefore, you receive ample opportunity to hear hari-kathā in sat-saṅga everywhere. But you are not satisfied with that. There is a reason for this: without a heartrending longing, one cannot progress on the path of bhakti. ...

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

It is first of all necessary to sit at the lotus feet of śrī guru and obey his commands. It is recognized that to obtain the capacity for all kinds of work or knowledge, or to fulfillany desires unrelated to Kṛṣṇa that can be fulfilled in this world – one must submit to a teacher. ...

Featured: Sri Upadesamrta

Upadesmrta 200

This unprecedented edition contains the commentaries Srila Radha-ramana dasa Gosvami, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada. Translated from the Hindi edition of Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, Sri Upadesamrta gives instructions indispensable for practitioners of the devotional path. Without following these instructions, entering the realm of pure devotion and especially following the intricate and elevated path of spontaneous devotion (raganuga-bhakti) is not only difficult, but impossible.

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

First, we must think that guru is our ātmā, our life and soul. Being totally surrendered to him, we must depend solely on him... If we serve Kṛṣṇa under the guidance of sad-guru, then certainly, like magic, we will be out of māyā...

Harmonist

It is with a desire to propagate the sublime glories of the concluding transcendental pastimes of our most worshipful Srila Gurudeva, nitya-lila pravista om visnupada Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, that we humbly present Entering Nitya-lila, a special on-line edition of the Rays of The Harmonist (No.24) in honour of the New Braja (Badger) puspa-samadhi ceremony, 2011.

Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami

In this world we have a guru and we are his disciples, but in raganuga-bhakti (internally) the guru is like a friend. Visrambhena gurau seva. In the spiritual realm, there is no formal relation of guru and disciple as there is in this world. Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami used to address Srila Rupa Gosvami as guru, and he respected him as such. Inwardly, however, he saw him as a sakhi, as Rupa-manjari, as he will further reveal in the third verse...

Morning Walk

Transcendental greed is very sacred and exalted. It must therefore be kept concealed within the heart, as burning camphor is kept in a closed room so that its fragrance will not evaporate but instead become more and more condensed. If you have any realizations, it is best to conceal them. Do you understand the word yara-mata?

This Kartika, The Rays of The Harmonist team humbly presents the printed edition of "Entering Nitya-lila", the concluding transcendental pastimes of Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja.

This year, 2011, the annual Vraja Mandala Parikrama began on October 11th, under the divine guidance of nitya-lila pravista om visnupada astotara-sata Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. At first there was some apprehension in many devotees' hearts regarding exactly how this parikrama would take place – the first year without the manifest presence of our beloved Srila Gurudeva – but then they became peaceful and joyous with the experience that Srila Gurudeva is as present as ever...
