    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...

  • Do Vedic Brāhmaṇas Know the Truth? Part 2 of 2

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...

Men become confused about the spiritual deity they worship in the midst of their attempts to acquire the three main objects of human pursuit (tri-varga). These three are dharma, or virtue; artha, or wealth; and kāma, or desire...

The many neighbours of Śrī Advaita Ācārya were high class brāhmaṇas. But among them, he could not find one single brāhmaṇato whom he might offer the śrāddha-pātra – the oblation meant for his ancestors...

Some devotees may decide to visit Vrindavan during their visit to India for Navadvipa parikrama, so the information for traveling to Mathura or Vrindavan may be useful. Otherwise a trip to Navadvipa will require an onward internal flight or train. Due to the high cost of flights, most devotees will be traveling by train to Navadvipa.

Taxis to Vrindavan can be pre-booked by calling a taxi company in Vrindavan, or e-mail Mani-mati dasi at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

    The time difference to India is GMT + 5.30 Hours all year long. Fix the price when you call. The last time I went it was Rs 1800, but that fluctuates a bit according to the season and government price for diesel. Make sure to give your name and flight details and have them read them back to you.

    Arriving at the New Delhi airport can be disorienting for the first-time visitor. There are the immigration, baggage claim and customs formalities to deal with. Though tedious, this is not normally a problem.
