  • By what means can one receive the complete mercy of Kṛṣṇa?

    tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

    ❝When Śrī Vārṣabhānavī-devī (Śrīmatī Rādhikā, the daughter of King Vṛṣabhānu) accepts someone as one of Her own – as a rūpānuga, or one of the followers of Śrī Rūpa Gosvāmī – then, only, is the full mercy of Kṛṣṇa accessible to him. He can only attain this fortune if he can become the kiṅkara of śrī guru, who is himself the best of the followers of Śrī Rūpa Gosvāmī.❞ ...

  • Śrī Nāma-sevā in Śrī Dhāma

    tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

    ❝Within this world, only those who attend to Śrī Bhagavān’s holy name (nāma), His abode (dhāma) and His desires (kāma) are truly worthy of adoration. No being can extricate himself from misunderstanding, which arises from māyā, without serving śrī nāma. The result of serving śrī nāma is that one will be freed from all forms of prejudice and will become settled in serving Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s desires (kāma).❞ ...

  • The Highest Vaisnava Sees Himself as the Lowest of All

    tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

  • Who Is a True Disciple?

    tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

    “It is incumbent upon me to submissively accept whatever arrangements śrī gurudeva makes for my well-being.” This is truly the attitude of a real disciple. Without it, inauspiciousness is inevitable. Real disciples are those who constantly serve the Supreme Lord under the guidance of the spiritual master, without becoming enjoyers – that is, without trying to use their senses to enjoy the sense objects. ...

    tn srila bhakitsiddhantaby Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

    Who is a true guru? It is he who is constantly engaged in the service of Śrī Hari. And who is the truly learned man? It is he who, in the words of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, is well conversant with actual knowledge of the jīva’s bondage and his deliverance from it (C.f. Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, 11.19.41). ...
