  • Criticize and Lose the Holy Name

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    This is our dilemma. We are doing hari-nama, staying in the holy place and hearing Bhagavatam, but we are not really hearing. Sometimes, some of us only act as if we are following. We speak publicly on the Bhagavatam and give instructions to others, but we do not protect ourselves from offense to Vaisnavas. Joking and laughing, we somehow disrespect or criticize Vaisnavas. The holy name (who is God Himself) cannot tolerate this. Therefore, we deceive ourselves and we are deprived of the real fruit of chanting the holy name. In this way, many lifetimes are wasted...

  • More Important Than Srimad Bhagavatam

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    The Siksastakam slokas are authentic, and they are more important than the Vedas, Upanisads, and other sastras. I think that they are even more important than the Srimad Bhagavatam. We can say that Srimad Bhagavatam is the bhasya, commentary, of the Siksastakam...

You know, if you have so much money and you go outside, anyone will come and shoot you and take your money. Money brings many problems...

  • The Origin of the Living Entity

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    By constitution, everything about the mango tree is present in the mango seed. All the potencies of the tree's leaves, branches, and fruits are present there. The number of leaves and the sweetness or sourness of the fruits are already in the seed, but they have not yet manifest...

  • Yes, It Applies To US

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    If bhakti is performed to the lotus feet of Vrajendra-nandana Syamasundara, causeless knowledge and detachment follow. Ahaitu means causeless. Bhakti comes, then vairagya (renunciation or detachment), and then tattva-jnana (knowledge and realization of all established philosophical truths) manifests in the heart. They are sure to come...
