    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.

    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 bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

If a man desires to see God’s form, or beauty, he should know that it is not visible to the material eye. Form or beauty that can be perceived by the material sense of vision is an object of enjoyment. But it is God, Kṛṣṇa, who is the enjoyer and not an object of enjoyment...

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...

Featured: The Butter Thief

butter thief

This small book, “The Butter Thief,” is a summary study of one of the most remarkable and illuminating pastimes of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This pastime is found in the venerable Bhāgavata Purāṇa, considered by self-realized authorities and scholars as the ripened fruit of the vast tree of Vedic literature.



Some Western devotees in Vrindavan have been going to Dr. Munish Bhagirath, DDS, in Delhi for their dental care. I heard that he was Gurudeva's dentist and so also went myself. Dr. Bhagirath has much affection for Gurudeva and has been visiting him regularly at the math in Delhi.  He also came to Govardhan during Kartik 2010 to take care of his dental needs.

When I left my job in the US, my dental insurance became nil. I asked my dentist who was the head of the local American Dental Association in the San Francisco Bay area what to look for in a dentist in India. He said he saw a lot of patients coming from India so he was experienced with the quality of dental work migrating into his office. He was also recently invited on teaching trip to India as a guest lecturer.

His advice was to look for a dentist trained in Germany or UK as they are the best. I lucked out because Dr. Bhagirath was trained in Germany and has German dental equipment in his office which looked better than what my top notch American dentist had.

My experience was pleasant. He is very professional and gentle person and I see how Gurudeva captured his heart. I have been serval times over the past 3 years and have recieved excellent care.

His office is in Neru Place area of Delhi. From Vrindavan I would arrange a taxi and coordinate appointments with a couple of other devotees to share the taxi expense. So it is a day trip to Delhi which can be used to do other things also.

If you are flying into Delhi you can make an appointment via email ahead of time ( This email address is being protected from spambots.

You can take the bus or metro to his office. Once at the matha just walk across the park in front of the math towards the Agrawal sweet shop, and catch bus #724 to Neru Place. There are red and green buses. I suggest waiting for a red one because they have AC and thus keep the windows shut. Cost is 30 rupees, no transfer necessary. The bus travel time is about an hour. Ask to get off at the Neru Place Flyover at the Outer-Ring Road, Chitranjan Park, and then take a right on that road, walking about eighth of a mile. His office is on the left side opposite of Neru Apartments cross road ISU Darshan Munjal Road. I haven't taken the metro as a transfer is involved and I like the simplicity of just getting on and off one bus.

Other devotes found a lady dentist closer to the Janakpuri matha. After having comparing experiences with them, I decided I would rather the extra travel to see Dr. Munish Bhagirath.
