• Our Master - His Life

    A most endearing hallmark of his preaching was the heart-stealing affection he showed to all. As an uttama-bhāgavata, he entered the deepest recesses of the heart to give the unmistakable reassurance that he is one's eternal well-wisher. The depth of his affection is a tangible reality for all who have experienced it, and this in itself bears subjective testimony to the fact that he was a true emissary of the Supreme Lord.

    As long as Śrīla Gurudeva, the beloved of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, is physically manifest, it is wise to render intimate service to him, and thereby attain perfection. But if we are not able to attain perfection because we have failed to develop attachment to him, attachment wherein we consider him to be the lord of our heart; if we have failed to serve him by giving him our full heart in complete sincerity and selflessness, then we have certainly been deprived...

  • The Most Compassionate

    Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is certainly more intelligent than each and every one of us, and He knows how to make the fallen souls of Kali-yuga best understand His high-level teachings. Indeed, His teachings are comprehensible by all. Still, our misfortune prevails. First, we do not accept His teachings. Second, to impress others with our prowess we mix something of our own with them...

    Sri Gurvastakam

    I want to give an explanation of Sri Guru – what are the symptoms of a bona fide guru – and to show you examples that have been given in the epics [Vedic scriptures]. You can apply this to your own guru. Our Sri Guru is akhanda-guru-tattva, Sri Baladeva Prabhu or Sri Nityananda Prabhu, so all teachings should be applied to him and to others who are following this... Read More

Rays of The Harmonist

  • Śrī Guru’s Heartly Wish
  • Nāma-bhajana and the Mercy of Śrī Hari, Guru & Vaiṣṇavas
  • Śrī Nāma-sevā in Śrī Dhāma

tn srila bv narayanaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Māhārāja

I am concerned about you – how your life can be happy and peaceful and how it, can be like a lamp-post, an ideal, that rises somewhat above standard of the common masses. Then thousands and lakhs of people can accept you as a role model and gain inspiration in their lives. Your life shouldn’t just be about taking birth, passed in full of gratification and dying. May your life be like the greatly learned Gārgī, Maitrāyī, Arundhatī, Anusūyā and Mīrā, and you may be able to spread the rays of [transcendental] light in the world. ... ❞

tn srila bv vamana thumbby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Vāmana Gosvāmī Māhārāja

❝You must put all manner of worldly tasks aside and chant one lakh daily, perform pūjā and arcana of the deity, study various sacred texts, and go to the maṭha to take advantage of hearing śrī hari-kathā. This is the special purpose of Kṛṣṇa’s saṁsāra, Bhagavān’s saṁsāra. Many believe that one lakh (lakṣa) of nāma means setting one’s lakṣya (focus) and chanting. But that is a one-sided notion. Chanting a fixed amount of śrī nāma means chanting with a steady heart, crying and weeping anxiously. One must complete one’s fixed number of rounds in that manner [with absorption].❞ ...

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

❝Within this world, only those who attend to Śrī Bhagavān’s holy name (nāma), His abode (dhāma) and His desires (kāma) are truly worthy of adoration. No being can extricate himself from misunderstanding, which arises from māyā, without serving śrī nāma. The result of serving śrī nāma is that one will be freed from all forms of prejudice and will become settled in serving Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s desires (kāma).❞ ...
