    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].

  • 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.

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Those who want to remove their desires by means of enjoyment hanker for emancipation. But the devotees of God hanker neither for enjoyment nor for emancipation. When, because of a lack of exact knowledge about the truth, we rely only on relative knowledge, our desires are not removed therewith, and all of our acts evaporate like camphor...
