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...

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...

Personality of Godhead - Part Two

tn_srila_bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

There is an old quarrel between those who assert that God has a material form and those who assert that God is the void – both of which are quite off the mark.
