Jaiva_dharma

Woven into the story are penetrating philosophical questions that are commonly pondered and eternally relevant. The depth of the answers gives clarity and direction to the quest to establish ourselves in our jaiva-dharma, our soul's constitutional function.

guru-devata1tma.jpg

A series of seven discourses on guru-tattva, in which Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja discusses the importance of accepting a bona fide guru as more dear than life itself and the absolute necessity of receiving initiation from such a guru. These discourses were based on verse 11.2.37 from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. “Therefore an intelligent person should engage unflinchingly in the unalloyed devotional service of the Lord, under the guidance of a bona fide spiritual master, whom he should accept as his worshipable deity and as his very life and soul.”

GopiGita

Gopi-gita is part of Rasa-panca-adhyayi, the five chapters of Srimad-Bhagavatam that relate rasa-lila. The body has five kinds of life-airs (panca prana) residing in the heart, and among these five, one is most vital. The twelve cantos of Srimad-Bhagavatam are likened to twelve parts of a body. The Tenth Canto is the heart of that body. Within that heart, the five chapters that constitute Rasa-panca-adhyayi are its five life-airs, and among them, Gopi-gita is the foremost.

We begin our discussion of Gopi-gita by remembering the chapter in Srimad-Bhagavatam that describes the gopis' worship of the goddess Katyayani-devi to attain Krsna as their husband...

Descriptions given tell how, having recently arrived in Sri Vaikuntha-dhama, the most desirable of places and which entrance into is sought after by unlimited saintly persons, Gopa-kumar is feeling despondent and cannot even ascertain the cause of his own dissatisfaction. At that time he is approached by Sri Narada Rsi, who becomes his siksa-guru (instructing spiritual master) and enlightens him with the tattva necessary to complete his spiritual journey and thereby attain the fulfilment of all his long cherished internal desires  in the transcendental land of spontaneous loving devotion to Sri Sri Radha-Govinda, Sri Goloka-Vraja.

An excerpt from a lecture entitled "The Jewel Book":

"Sri Gita-govinda is a "jewel book" brought by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. We all know that Sri Jayadeva Gosvami has written this beautiful Gita-govinda, but without Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu it would have remained locked like a pearl in the oyster shell or a jewel in a locked case. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu manifested the glories of Sri Gita-govinda. Just as without Srila Rupa Gosvami no one would have known the inner moods of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, similarly, by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu relishing the moods of Sri Gita-govinda its glories became manifest for the whole world. I have explained this very high-class philosophy, but only rare devotees in this world can understand it. I have called you here only to give you this."
