On August 13-14, 2005, Srila Narayana Maharaja gave classes at the
Sri Radha-Krsna temple in East of Kailash, Delhi. Over 500 devotees
and guests came to hear his hari-katha and receive his blessings.
His talks were filmed by Indian National Television, which is viewed
by hundreds of thousands.
On the first night of the program, Srila Narayana Maharaja spoke about
sanatana-dharma, and on the second night he discussed the five relationships
with Sri Krsna, and an example of an associate in each relationship.
He explained the five rasas and their successive excellence. He explained
how, as we go from one rasa to the other, the prema (transcendental,
ecstatic love of God) becomes thicker and thicker. The more mamata
(sense of possessiveness) one has for Sri Krsna, the higher their
prema will be. Srila Narayana Maharaja gave the examples of Prahlada
Maharaja in santa-rasa (neutral love), Hanuman in dasya-rasa (love
with service), the cowherd boys in sakhya-rasa (fraternity), Mother
Yasoda in vatsalya-rasa (parenthood), and the gopis and Srimati Radhika
in the highest, madhurya-rasa (conjugal love). After the classes there
were dance performances, kirtanas and delicious krsna-prasadam
