We trust various persons of authority to inform us about material subject matters, but whom shall we trust in regard to transcendental subject matters and the transcendental world? We cannot experience transcendence with any of our material senses. How then, can we have an idea of that pure reality? We can see the body, but not the soul. How can we verify that there is a soul beyond matter? Though God is everywhere, we don't see Him. How then, can we determine who is God? Although it is evident that we cannot control the world, how can we trust that there is a God from whom this creation has come, and how can we be confident that it is He who controls it? Millions of people are born daily, and millions also die. Who controls this overwhelming tide of birth and death? Sea waves come on schedule, the sun appears on schedule, and new days come with continuous regularity. We do not control those rhythms, yet somehow, everything is maintained.
The groundbreaking spiritual novel by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura Jaiva-dharma reveals the ultimate development of the path of pure devotion to the English-speaking world.
In the year 1991, Srila Gurudeva led four discussions on Raga-vartma-candrika by Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, who is considered to be the incarnation of Srila Rupa Gosvami and who came to further illuminate Rupa Gosvami's mission. This book is a compilation of those discussions.
Harmony is a compilation of excerpts from the discources by our beloved Gurudeva, Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. His purpose was to give us tools and keys to create an ideal society in which everyone is happy, as well as to inspire in us a longing to achive the ultimate goal of our lives.
The theme of these excerpts is basically centered around the following verses:
"The symptoms of one who chants the Hare Krsna maha-mantra are as follows. He is actually very exalted, but he thinks himself lower than the straw in the street. His tolerance is like that a tree, which does not protest when it is cut down and does not ask anyone for water when it is drying up. The tree gives its own wealth of fruits, flowers, and so on to anyone who asks. It gives shelter to others, even while tolerating scorching heat and torrents of rain itself. A Vaisnava is the most exalted of all, but he does not think that he is better than others. On the contrary, he gives all respect to others, knowing that Krsna resides in the hearts of all." Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Antya-lila (20.21-25)
The power of the transcendental holy name of the Lord: "When a qualified person chants harinama, this light diffuses, thus keeping the darkness of illusion away from the soul."
The second volume of Hari-katha, translated from the Hindi and Bengali lectures of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, is another exquisite selection of lectures filled with the deep siddhanta of Gaudiya Vaisnavism.
Hari-katha is the life-giving elixir for anyone on the path of devotion. This book is a compilation of sweet hari-katha given by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja in the Kesavaji Gaudiya Matha in Mathura.
The futility of material enjoyment. "Everyone wants to be happy, but generally we can find only a little happiness and affection in this world."
