Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

by Seva Audio Team

This Kartika may be different and we may not be able to come together in Vraja physically due to current travel restrictions, but we shall not let that become an obstacle in observing Kartika like we do - being immersed in prayer for Radha-dasyam and the moods of Vraja while remaining in constant association of our beloved Srila Gurudeva throughout this month! In fact, we can actually instensify our absorption in Srila Gurudeva, Sri Vraja dhama & the pastimes of Sri Sri Yugala-Kisora!

The Audio Seva Team is here to serve you, to enable just that.

From tomorrow, we will begin the pre-Kartika series:
🔹How to observe Kartika vrata, Why perform Parikrama, Instructions for Karika, etc.

Coming this Kartika (Oct 31-Nov 30, Vrindavan Calendar - please refer to calendar for you location):

🔹Vraja Mandala Parikrama Videos
🔹Sri Damodarastakah Lecture series (H-1994, E-1996, Audio)
🔹Sri Bhajana Rahasya Lecture series (H-2004, E-1996, Audio)
🔹Tithi Lectures (Audio)

❣️Adding Some More Sweetness: Music Video of Sri Damodarastakah sung by Srila Gurudeva ❣️

🙏PLEASE DO SHARE this with others. Offer your friends, relatives and associates the good fortune to hear Srila Gurudeva’s unparalleled and bhava-imbued hari-katha.

  • Please note:
    🌳 🍃 VRAJA MANDALA PARIKRAMA SERIES:
    - Videos will be released on WhatsApp and Facebook as per the Parikrama schedule for this year.
    - We have not cut portions of the video with just devotees walking, kirtana etc, because some devotees may like to go back in time while watching these. If you wish to only hear Srila Gurudeva speaking, we request to to skip forward to that part.
    - We could not find footage of Srila Gurudeva for some of the pastime places. For those places, we have produced the video using Srila Gurudeva's audio harikatha and footage/pictures of the place mixed with pictures of Srila Gurudeva.
    - This year, due to acute shortage of time, we could not add subtitles etc. We hope to be able to do this next year.

    🛑 If you are already in Srila Gurudeva Harikatha (1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8) WhatsApp group, please DO NOT join the WhatsApp group again. The same hari-katha will be sent on all the groups.
