The Holy Name - Part Two

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Only when the jīva attains transcendental knowledge, and is therefore freed from every non-spiritual pre-occupation, does he employ himself in serving the transcendent Supreme Godhead. Loving service to the Supreme Godhead is the only means and the only end of renouncing the activities of the external world...

The Holy Name - Part One

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Chanting the holy name with knowledge of one’s relationship with Him is the only service to Kṛṣṇa that is available to the fallen jīvas, and by it, they are able to attain the sole object of their existence: love for Kṛṣṇa...

Religious Views - Part One

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

In a like manner, most philosophers or religious sects conceive of the undifferentiated Truth – because it the opposite of differentiated matter – as the ultimate object of attainment. Thus they endeavour to approximate that undifferentiated Truth with the help of their personal experiences, which in turn are a product of their material senses...

The Dance of Sri Krsna Caitanya - Part 2

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...

Jivas Enthralled and Emancipated

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The very act of remembering his free, natural condition – that he is meant for serving Krsna – restores the soul to his unalloyed senses and frees him from the bondage of fruitive work and cures him of the disease of illusion. As he has been in bondage from before his coming under the domain of divisible time, his bondage is called eternal and he is said to be eternally fettered...

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...

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?...
