  • After The Walk - Darsana

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    Those who are more advanced can remember Sri Krsna's asta-kaliya-lila (His pastimes throughout each twenty-four-hour period), and those who are still more elevated can remember something more. There is no single instruction or meditation that applies to all. The devotees' remembrance accords with gradation and qualification in bhakti...

  • Fortune Through Association

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    If you are helping and serving the pure Vaisnava, or doing parikrama of Vrndavana or a Tulasi plant, even unknowingly, or you have taken any maha-prasadam remnants which devotees are distributing somewhere and which has been sincerely offered to Krsna with tulasi leaves - that will surely have a great effect. This is called sukriti, pious credits that create impressions on the heart for the gradual attainment of bhakti. When much sukriti is amassed by someone, that person attains sadhu-sanga...

  • Morning Walk - Badger 2010, June 11th

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    This verse tells the process. The devotee will be in Vrndavana, the place of Krsna's pastimes. Tan nama – He will always chant the holy names. And smarana – he will remember the pastimes connected with these particular names – such as Damodara, Rasa-bihari, Radhanatha. Under the guidance of a raganuga-bhakta he will remember these important names that are connected with Radha,. This is the process. If one cannot physically reside in Vrndavana, then he should think, "I am in Vrndavana...

  • Morning Walk in Miami - May 24, 2008

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    I am asking a question. Do you know why and how Brahmaji stole the friends and calves of Sri Krsna? Who will answer? Do you know?

  • On Prabhupadanuga

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    You should not think that Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Prabhupada has discovered something new - and that we are "Prabhupadanugas". Some think that "Just as there are Rupanuga Vaisnavas, so we are Prabhupadanuga." Persons who think like that are nothing - they are completely ignorant...

  • This Ignorant Boy

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    If you plant a seed in the ground, it will take three, four, five or six days to sprout. After four, five, six or ten months, leaves and creepers will come, and then flowers, and then fruits will manifest. You will have to give this process at least fifteen years. This is "asu". This is the meaning of "immediately". If you can attain a taste in bhakti, then one life may be sufficient...

  • To Transcend The Iron Age

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    You are very lucky to be in the line of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Srila Rupa and Sanatana Gosvamis, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada, my Gurudeva Srila Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja and Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja. And I am helping you to remain in line. Give importance to bhajana, to Krsna consciousness. This is not the first or last human form that Krsna is mercifully giving you...

  • Was Krsna's Promise Broken?

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    How are we to reconcile this? Krsna is the Supreme Lord. Everything is possible for Him. He performs all His pastimes under the direct shelter of His yogamaya potency, His trancendental spiritual deluding potency. So how should we understand this pastime?
