East of Kailash, Delhi

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
