tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Those who may hesitate to accept the above view of the real nature of the dance of Sri K???a Caitanya should find it impossible to explain the occurrence of the corresponding activity in our present life, and also the extraordinary value that is attached to it, especially by those who are most anxious to deny its propriety in the conception of the Absolute Personality...

The Dance of Sri Krsna Caitanya

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam declares that the loving devotee of Kṛṣṇa is maddened by the ecstasy of joy. Oblivious of the salutary conventions of theistic society that provide the performance of worship in the most dignified manner and with all due solemnity, the devotee laughs, cries, dances and sings in ecstasy...

Uniformity - Part Two

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The waving of the light before the emblematic figure of the Divinity is as much an activity of the soul as the exposition of the Bhāgavatam when each is performed by the pure devotee of Kṛṣṇa. But the performance of apparently identical versions of these activities by conditioned souls possesses no spiritual value whatsoever...

Saranagati Depends on Sambandha-jnana

tn srila bv vamana thumbby Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Vamana Gosvāmī Mahārāja

Only he whose mind and heart have become attached to Śrī Hari, śrī guru and the Vaiṣṇavas will feel an anxiety and eagerness in his heart to have direct audience of them (darśana). Certainly, all these subjects are realized only according to one’s qualification in sādhana-bhajana. Śrī Bhagavān will someday mercifully bestow upon you the qualification to realize all of this. Who can foretell in what form the drops of His divine mercy will be showered upon someone?...

The idea of an organised church in an intelligible form, indeed, marks the close of the living spiritual movement. The great ecclesiastical establishments are the dikes and the dams to retain the current that cannot be held by any such contrivances...

Uniformity - Part One

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The sentiment that supplies the seat of love in the undeveloped stages of spiritual endeavour is that of reverence and faith in the transcendental truth of śāstric revelation. It is, however, only a distant glimpse of the Truth that remains unavailable...

Opposing Dharma as a Business

Businessmen normally deal in rice, paddy and so on; but these unlawful tradesmen have used the pretence of serving the deities to turn the deities’ home, a temple made of stone, into their object of trade

Associates of Sri Caitanya – Part Three: Bhaktas, Avataras, Manifestations and Sakti

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The next category of Divinity is the bhakta, or devotee... While the guru has the distinctive function as master, the servant has no such distinctive function... The mercy of the bhakta enables the dissociable soul to receive the mercy of the guru. The guru and the bhakta are the inseparable divine counterparts of one another....

The Compassion of Sri Caitanya-candra

Gaura-NitāiThe living entities bound in the ocean of material existence misconstrue the meaning of the word ‘compassion’ (dayā), as a result of their own exploitive conception of the word. Their supposed compassion is entirely different from the compassion of Svayam Bhagavān Śrī Caitanya-deva...
