The Finite Servant

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

...Simply by breaking the external frame we must not conclude that we will all of a sudden become immeasurable. We are decidedly always measurable things. This measurement, or the very platform of finitude, is quite sufficient for us not to consider ourselves to be the Oversoul...

What is the result of engaging in sri nama-bhajana?

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Sri nama is Sri Krsna Himself. Not just Sri Krsna Himself, but indeed sri nama is directly the form of the supremely original Sri Krsna Himself (svayam-rupa Sri Krsna). There is no other means to dispel our misfortune than engaging in sri nama-bhajana. Only the ecstasy of chanting the holy names of Sri Krsna can...

There is no place for malice and envy on the path of spiritual practice

tn srila bv vamana thumbby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Trivikrama Gosvāmī Mahārāja

Our debt to sri guru and the Vai??avas for their unlimited compassion and supra-mundane affection can never be repaid. When a person performs hari-bhajana, he gets an understanding and appreciation of that debt, and his life becomes blessed...

Oneness, the Senses and Learning

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

There are many obstacles in the way of the search for the Truth. Those obstacles serve to eclipse the real nature of the seer of the Truth, of the search, and of the object of the search. It is the enlightening potency of words that alone is able to destroy all those obstacles...

Artificial and Genuine Svarupa Siddhi

tn srila bhakitsiddhanta thumbby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

...those who conceive of this subject matter while their consciousness is riddled with anarthas do not conceive what it truly is. All those esoteric truths that are revealed solely through one’s advancing practice of chanting the holy names are to be considered the introduction to one’s svarūpa, one’s true spiritual identity...

We Cannot Rely On the Mind

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The outward feature is not to be trusted. Lime-water outwardly resembles milk. The apparent face is not identical with the immanence, the soul or the substratum. In determining the self, it is necessary to find our real position. Are we products of material things? Are we the Oversoul? This problem requires solution as we shall leave the external body after a time...

A Humble Letter

tn srila bv trivikramaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Trivikrama Gosvāmī Mahārāja

Although we have no qualification for offering or remembering such an exalted personality as Srimad Trivikrama Maharaj, we pray fervently with our utmost sincerity, however meagre, that he please accept this dedication for our benefit and thereby bestow His Divine Shower of innumerable Maha-Bhagavata Blessings on us fallen souls...

When the Transcendental Sound Makes His Appearance

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

If we were to examine Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya using any one or the whole group of the above subjects, all our labour would be fruitless and take us not an inch nearer to the Supreme Lord. It is transcendental rasa which alone will enable our transcendental finite ego to approach the Transcendental Blissful Infinite...

What becomes of an atheist?

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The healthy soul’s single most prominent inclination is solely to satisfy the senses of the transcendental cupid, Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Surrender to Śrī Kṛṣṇa and rendering service to Him is the only way to destroy the seed of mundane kāma and the only means to get rid of it for good...

The Word Krsna Is Not an Allegory

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The word ‘Kṛṣṇa’ points to the real Truth. The Truth Himself is not the same as the secondary meaning of His name. The word ‘Kṛṣṇa’ is not used to convey any allegorical sense. The word ‘Kṛṣṇa’, when uttered by a soul who desires the supreme goal, has no room for any meanings that lead to ignorance....

We Study What We Wish to Acquire

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

We know that this procedure also has its difficulties. The mixed aptitude is really opposed to the quest for the truth. It is opposed to absolute emancipation, to the supreme function, the supreme need and the supreme goal. Its nature as well as its language is equally opposed to the quest for the truth....

Jesus Christ is Jagad-guru

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

If someone accepts such a great soul from the past – in this case Jesus Christ – as jagad-guru and wishes to follow in his footsteps in the present but considers that there is no need for any mahānta-guru, it is questionable to what extent he will be able to properly follow the views of Jesus...
