Srila Sri Rupa Siddhanti Gosvami Maharaja

They used to keep their lives in their hands for their gurudeva, as my gurudeva did for Srila Prabhupada at the time of Navadvipa parikrama. At that time disciples did not quarrel among themselves, whereas nowadays we see the opposite. A guru has to be very careful that, “How can I fulfil all the desires of my disciples so that they may not give up bhakti…?”

What is the real fruit of sadhana?

What is the real fruit of sadhana?

Many people do sadhana in this world, but what do they want? They only want material facilities and the various objects of material enjoyment. However there are those who perform sadhana-bhakti only with the goal of entering the spiritual world. This is the real qualification of exiting this world and entering the spiritual world…

The True Nature of Parakiya-Rasa

The True Nature of Parakiya-Rasa

Through the method of worship in the mood of parakiya performed in Vraja-mandala, Gauda-mandala, and Ksetra-mandala, living entities are attracted to the Supreme Person, Krsna. Srila Gurudeva established the super-excellence of parakiya-rasa. Srila Gurudeva taught: in this worldly life we have mother, father, siblings, relatives, and friends—yet affection for them binds us to material existence. The essence and goal of all knowledge and rules and regulations of scripture is to develop love for Krsna and to serve Him. A person who possesses this love and can give this love to others is the best teacher. In this world, love for Krsna manifests as parakiya-rasa. When we are amidst all our worldly relations and affairs, bound by so many social duties and customs, and yet we develop the sentiment that this material display is worthless, and love and relationship with Krsna is the supreme purpose of life, and we live every moment as an offering to our Eternal Beloved, we approach the true nature of parakiya-rasa. For although there are others who have claims to our love and attention, our mind is attracted at every moment to Krsna. Those who think that this world and its people and responsibilities are superior and that Bhagavan and loving service to Him is secondary can never achieve the highest goal of life—pure love in parakiya-rasa…

Kartika-vrata and Disappearance day of Param Gurudeva – Acarya Kesari

Kartika-vrata and Disappearance day of Param Gurudeva – Acarya Kesari

Krsna plays His flute on Sarad Purnima. He had promised the Gopis after Katyayani vrata, “After one year, on Sarad Purnima, I will call you.” When Krsna played on His flute, no one hesitated to run to Him. Whether they were cooking, cleaning, distributing prasadam, or milking the cows, as soon as they heard the flute call of Krsna, they ran to Him.

Vinoda had been present in this world for a long time, but when Prabhupada needed him for service, he called him to the eternal world. Then, Param Gurudeva disappeared in the evening. The Guru-varga then came, and arranged the viraha mahotsava. They said, “He is now in the eternal world. Here is his memorial place.” Where will we offer respect? Where will we go to pray? Where will we cry? Anything that was used by Guru-pada-padma is spiritual, even his fingernail or cloth. He was with this body for a long time, and he has given that to you as a gift. The place where this body is present will be a holy dhama. It will be surcharged with spiritual power. Therefore, Guru-pada-padma is given samadhi. This place is called the samadhi pitha stana…

Srila Sanatana Goswami

Sanatana Gosvami opened the storehouse of bhakti-rasa that is laced with renunciation, along with the associates of Radha-Krsna, like Lokanatha dasa Gosvami and Bhugarbha Gosvami. If one desires to relish the transcendental nectar of devotion, then Sanatana Gosvami should be eternally remembered.

Srila Rupa Goswami

One who remembers and follows the instructions of Srila Rupa Gosvami, taking shelter of his lotus feet, will certainly achieve spiritual perfection, or anuragamayi-seva in eternal Vraja. He can thus be a Rupanuga-Vaisnava. Fortunate souls can perceive the specialty of Rupa Gosvami and the pricelessness of his teachings. One who approaches Srila Rupa Gosvami through prayer and by adopting his method of spiritual practice will understand and be empowered by Mahaprabhu’s karuņa-sakti, mercy potency.

Sri Guru Darsana

This book, Sri Guru Darsana, is a revelation or darsana of the life of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, an eternal associate of Radha-Krsna sent from Vraja, as well as his darsana or teachings to the world. He came in an unbroken succession of divine masters, descending from the Supreme Lord Himself, the original Divine Master. Such a spiritual lineage is considered a prerequisite for a bona fide guru by religious authorities throughout India…
