  • We Are One Family

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    We should not always remain in the kanistha-adhikari stage. There should be a way to go up to something superior, but our minds will not go there. We should try to make advancement through someone who is superior, through those who are practically serving, whose minds are there, who know Prabhupada’s mood, and who know the very deep process of Srila Rupa Gosvami and Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami that Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja has written about in his books. We should try to go very deep...

  • Morning Walk -Sadhu Sanga is Essential

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    Anyone who has as his stayi-bhava (permanent transcendental emotion or relationship) a relation with Krsna in Vraja, in Mathura, in Dvaraka, in Ayodya, in Vaikuntha or anywhere in the spiritual world, and they look towards the spiritual world from the tatastha region, they do not have to come to this world in order to perfect their bhajana.

  • Taste

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    The fourth yam (stage or period) of sadhana is ruci, taste. In this stage of ruci, especially the second kind of ruci, it does not matter whether or not the Deity is decorated, or whether or not His face, mouth, hands, and so on are complete. Even though Jagannatha has only two round eyes and no hands, Caitanya Mahaprabhu saw Him as Krsna and cried out to Him, "O Vrajendranandana, I want to meet You. My heart is breaking...

  • The Constitutional Position Of Gadadhara Pandit

    Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

    Srimati Radharani was like a guru. In the form of Gadadhara Pandit, She was watching Krishna in the form of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, to see whether He was playing Her role properly or not...

  • The Glories of Hanuman

    Now we are coming to our subject - where we left off in Badger. Why do we prefer Ambarisa Maharaja over Prahlada Maharaja? Prahlada Maharaja is a siddha-bhakta and parama-mahabhagavata (a perfected devotee situated at the stage of prema, love of God), and Ambarisa Maharaja is a sadhaka-bhakta (a practitioner at the stage of bhava-bhakti) So why do we want to follow Ambarisa Maharaja?
