Serve Cooperatively Under the Guidance of Sri Guru

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Everything is the compassion of He who is the embodiment of compassion. “It is all for the best.” Everything Bhagavān does, He does for our welfare, only. Wherever the embodiment of compassion may place someone, and whenever He may place them there, that person should stay there at that time with a smiling face and accept the gift or the chastisement of the Lord...

Transcendence Is At Sri Guru's Lotus Feet

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

This world is a perverted reflection of the original world, which is our real home. Instead of passing our time here, we want to go back to our eternal abode. We are now very busily engaged in pursuing pleasant sensations from phenomenal objects. We firmly resolve to eradicate the root cause of our presence in this world of delusion: so-called pleasure, and endless misery and strife....

Calling God's Name

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Only Śrīla Gurudeva, who is the personal associate of Śrī Gaurāṅga, can protect me from the clutches of this material existence, which is like death. However, I will have to carefully consider who is guru (heavy, or profoundly significant) and who is laghu (light, or insignificant)...

One Must Correctly Identify a Vaisnava

tn_srivp_kesavaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja

If the qualities I detect in a Vaisnava, like affection and patience, do not inspire me to engage in the service of Sri Visnu and the Vaisnavas, and do not lead me to become attracted to his Vaisnavata, then it should be understood that I have been unable see their true aspect. In other words, I have simply been trying to satisfy my senses.

The Speciality of Sriman Mahaprabhu’s Dance at Ratha-yatra

tn_srila_bv_trivikramaby Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Trivikrama Gosvami Maharaja

Mahaprabhu moved with such speed, that He appeared to be simultaneously present at every point of His circumambulation. Such a sight is certainly astonishing, but our amazement should not stop there. What bhava was manifesting in Sriman Mahaprabhu at a given moment, and what internal transformations was He undergoing as a result? This was the foundation of His dance.

Taking Care of God

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

When the Absolute wants something, we are morally bound to offer our services to Him and to attend to His needs. If He thinks that He is the Husband, all should be His wives. The soul should attire her body according to the taste of her Husband; she should apparel herself in such a way as to please her Master....

Sri Hari, Guru and Vaisnavas Certainly Accept Our Offerings

tn_srila_bv_vamanaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Vāmana Gosvāmī Mahārāja

Entities of the same clan naturally unite with one another. As such, the unborn, eternal soul gradually attains proximity to Adhokṣaja Śrī Bhagavān by performing sādhana and becomes immersed in the bliss of pure service....

Do Not Take God's Name in Vain

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

God is the best judge of how to look after us. We do not know how good shall come to us. We cannot examine the merits and demerits of things with our present faculties. It is not possible. We should always be ready to submit to Him unconditionally. All ideas apart from this are not regarded as bhakti by true religionists....

"O Sādhaka, Come To Know This In Your Life"

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

...The moment we consider ourselves actually healthy, we in fact enter into a state of aversion to Kṛṣṇa. And as a result we begin to imagine that Vaiṣṇavas who are more advanced than we are, are actually inferior to us. On account of this, Kṛṣṇa keeps us in various states of distress...

Śrī Guru Is Present In All Things

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhanta by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

The transcendental reflection of the āśraya-jātīya aspect in all the conscious cosmic manifestation is the manifestation of my gurudeva alone, in diverse forms. He who teaches us at every moment that we should engage in serving Bhagavān for our entire life is certainly śrī gurudeva. This very same gurudeva is reflected in the heart of every living being. He is present in every single entity in his āśraya-jātīya aspect....

Offerings Unto the Lotus Feet of a Vaiṣṇava

tn_srila_bp_puri by Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja

Śrīla Bhakti Pramoda Purī Gosvāmī Mahārāja also came and stayed in Mathurā Maṭha many times... and on many other special occasions I received the association of Śrīla Mahārāja. In this way, I had the great fortune to hear about the precious treasure of bhajana that I mentioned before, directly from the lips of the associates of Śrīla Prabhupāda, and to store the glory of this precious treasure in the core of my heart by virtue of rendering service to them and receiving their mercy....
