 Full Version

 

Śrī Bhagavān and His non-different manifestation, śrī gurudeva, are not under the control of material time. The potency of time (kāla-śakti) in the form of the cycle of material birth and death can have no influence over them. The pastime of Śrī Bhagavān – the transcendental visaya- vigraha (object of worship) – in which He descends from the transcendental world to this material world is termed avirbhāva, or divine appearance, and the pastime in which He abandons this material world to return back to the transcendental abode, Goloka, is termed as tirobhāva.

Rays_entering

 Full Version

It is with a desire to propagate the sublime glories of the concluding transcendental pastimes of our most worshipful Srila Gurudeva, nitya-lila pravista om visnupada Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, that we humbly present Entering Nitya-lila, a special on-line edition of the Rays of The Harmonist (No.24) in honour of the New Braja (Badger)  puspa-samadhi ceremony, 2011.

This special edition of Rays of The Harmonist includes:

  •  an article entitled "The Real Significance of the Pastime of Illness Manifested by the Maha-bhagavata" written by the disciples of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada, in order to help bound souls further comprehend the pure devotee's real nature:

The illness enacted by the maha-bhagavata is not to be equated with suffering due to the threefold worldly miseries. While manifesting the perfect ideal of vipralambhamaya-bhajana, or bhajana suffused with a mood of separation, the maha-bhagavata deceives those who are extremely antagonistic to Bhagavan and who are offenders. At the same time, they confer the opportunity to serve upon those who are sevonmukha (inclined to render service). They demonstrate the living ideal of following the instruction to serve Sri Hari with intense endeavour and enthusiasm, even amidst worldly tribulations.

  • a report on Srila Gurudeva's concluding transcendental pastimes in this world, which is based on an article written by two devotees who closely attended him from September until his entrance into nitya-lila on December 29, 2010. This report was first published in the Hindi magazine Sri Sri Bhagavat Patrika:

During this period of ill health, Srila Gurudeva remained absorbed in deep transcendental moods. Sometimes he would utter indistinct words, and other times he would chant his ahnika or stava-stutis (devotional prayers) for hours on end. Only upon his servants' repeated efforts to offer him food or medicine would he slowly return to external consciousness, sometimes fully and sometimes only partially. Thus Srila Gurudeva would constantly remain in an internal state (antara-dasa).

We sincerely pray that these articles enhance our conception of the maha-bhagavata Srila Gurudeva's wondrous pastimes, and that they stimulate loving feelings of separation from him, thus nourishing our inner connection with him.

Dear Readers, Please accept our dandavat pranam.

On the day of Srila Gurudeva's vyasa-puja, 2nd February 2011, a special edition of Rays of The Harmonist

was published and presented in honour of him. It features 188 pages of valuable articles by our guru-varga regarding the glories of sri guru, as well as affectionate offerings to him by senior Vaisnavas from other sangas and from our own sanga.

We would like to ensure that you and the devotees in your area receive a copy, if you so desire. Therefore, to organize the transportation of the magazine to Sri Navadvipa-dhama, we require that you inform us by February 16, 2011, as to how many you need, and we will put them aside for you. We have a limited quantity of this edition. Since we do not want to transport more copies than required, we need to get some idea of how many will be purchased there. They are retailing at Rs 300 each. You can place your order with Vaijayanti mala dasi at vyasapuja.edition@gmail.com
