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...

The Science of the Attractive Reality

tn srila bhakitsiddhanta thumbby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

❝We are now interested in the acquisition of all kinds of worldly facilities. We find it useful to study those sciences that deal with the objects we wish to acquire. But we need not remain confined to such investigation. We are fit to be attracted, also, by the science of supra-mundane reality. We are attracted by One who is existence, knowledge and bliss. He attracts us in different degrees, for He has given us the fitness to be attracted in different measures....❞

What is Real Independence?

tn srila bhakitsiddhanta thumb thumbby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

❝No matter how many difficulties we must face, we pray that we may always be able to follow in the footsteps of the devotees of Bhagavān. When we realize our own ineptitude, humility (dainya) arises. That humility is the root of accepting guidance from Bhagavān’s devotees. Only when I truly admit my own incompetence shall I become capable of perceiving the beauty and the glories of the lotus feet of Bhagavān’s devotees...❞

A Collection of Flowers

tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja

❝O ocean of compassion and foremost of ācāryas! The specialities of your mercy are blossoms of divinity – infinite and innumerable. Never could they be counted! I have plucked but a few petals from them and, in a childish effort, attempted to worship your feet in the way that one makes oblations of Gaṅgā water to the Gaṅgā herself. Kindly reveal a glimpse of your transcendental message within my heart and grant me the

  • Guru-sevā Is Essential

    Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja

    If we accept only guru and not guru-paramparā there will be problems [in our spiritual life] and divya-jñāna will not manifest. Therefore we also worship guru-paramparā on the day of Vyāsa-pūjā. Nityānanda Prabhu was waiting for Mahāprabhu...

  • You May Speak Further

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    Sri Ramananda Raya then suggested sva-dharma-tyaga, giving up one’s occupational duty. Ultimately, even if one wants to offer the fruits of ones worldly activities to Krsna, since Krsna actually owns everything, what can one actually offer to Him? Everything belongs to Krsna, and therefore one should simply renounce and leave one’s material designation in varnasrama. One should be very careful to avoid anything that is against bhakti...
