Kripa Daily: Glories of Diksa and Siksa Guru

Who understands the glories of Śrīla Gurudeva? If someone sends a poor helpless person to school, maintains him in every way, and takes care of him attentively, then when he becomes a post graduate, and thereafter a minister, he thinks, “This person was so kind to me.

He therefore became Ekadasi-tithi. Ekadasi-tithi is like a time period. How did he become this tithi? All transcendental time is Krsna Himself, and therefore this transcendental time is also Him.

Kripa Daily: HOW SRILA TRIVIKRAMA MAHARAJA GLORIFIED SRILA GURUDEVA

Śrīla Trivikrama Mahārāja raised the question, “How can we attain bhakti? Even if we end all our time with sādhus, if we have no faith in them, then we can never achieve bhakti. By feeding or giving money to sādhus, or even by following sādhu’s instructions, one does not achieve bhakti. Faith and respect for Vaiṣṇavas is crucial!
