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.

Namah
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 Guruvastakam

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...

Wait for His Mercy to Manifest

tn srila bv narayanaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Māhārāja

❝What then is the responsibility of one who is the bestower of that viraha or who has caused that viraha? That supremely clever (vidagdha-śiromaṇi) Śrī Kṛṣṇa is well aware of that responsibility. At times His cleverness is not comprehended even by those who are rasika. You should therefore wait for the proper time to comprehend it and for His mercy to manifest. There may be some delay in His bestowing mercy, but there will be no denial of it. How is it

Not Attained by Our Own Effort

❝As long we do not possess that qualification, ekāntika devotion is not possible. So, what do we have to do? Our attempt only will not be helpful in this regard; the ascending process will not be helpful for us. We must follow the descending process.❞...

You Are Not to Leave Before I Do

tn srila bv vamana thumbŚrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Vāmana Gosvāmī Māhārāja

❝Are you enacting such sickness again and again just to test our composure? Once last year also you enacted such an illness. I do not know what Śrī Śrī Guru-Gaurāṅga Śrī Rādhā-Vinoda-bihārījī have written in our fortune, but I say there is no way you are allowed to leave before I do. If Śrī Guru and Gaurāṅga do not fulfil our heartfelt prayers, I will consider myself utterly bereft of good fortune.❞...
