Devotional Transformation
"When the Pancha-Pandavas lost their kingdom, they had no house, no food, nothing, but even at that time they were happy. This is the mood of Krishna consciousness, this is the mood of devotion. Whatever situation comes, we must have chastity to our Gurudev."

In honour of the worshippable appearance day of Sri Lalita Devi:

Divine Guidance, Chapter 4
"We are in the group of Lalita Devi. Our prayer is that she will take us and engage us in service. We are very hopeful because Lalita Devi's mood is very open, something like that of Nityananda Prabhu. She is very affectionate with all, and she is the head of all the sakhis."

 

Sri Lalita Devi
"This is Uchagaon, Guru Maharaj's dearmost place. He said, 'First go to Uchagaon, then you can enter Varshana.' He explained that if you do not get the mercy of Lalita Devi, you cannot get the mercy of Srimati Radharani."

Published in previous years:

Our Lord's Beloved Power [a chapter from Affectionate Guidance]
"Today is Sri Radhastami, the Appearance Day of Srimati Radharani. The Rupanuga Sampradaya gives some special, unique appreciation of Srimati Radharani. They feel that without the merciful connection of Srimati Radharani, they cannot approach towards Krishna at all. Only if the order is coming from Her will they move towards Him. They are extremely fanatical about Srimati Radharani, and that is their foremost qualification."

Krishna's Dearmost
"Without service to Radharani's lotus feet, no service can be possible. If, however, we can serve the associate servitors of Radharani, we can get the supreme benefit. And Gurudev is non-different from Srimati Radharani, therefore it is necessary to serve the Guru."

Pure Hearts Run Behind Krishna (6 September 2019)
"If you have ego, you will never get any result. We must sweep and wipe and clean these things out of our hearts, and this does not happen externally—this dirt is removed by hearing Hari-katha. If someone poses as a Vaishnav but talks gramya-katha, then they can never be a Vaishnav."

 


In honour of Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu:

yah sankhya-pankena kutarka-pamsuna

"With his nectarean teachings, Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu revealed the Supreme Lord, Krishna, whose effulgence had been hidden by the quicksand of calculation, the dust storm of fallacious logic, and the ditch of illusionism. May he be my shelter."
—Sri Baladev Vidhyabhusan

 

Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu
"I have no power to say what kind of devotion to his Guru Jiva Goswami had. Jiva Goswami's service cannot be compared to anyone's service. Whatever order he would get, he would place it on his head and do it all the time—his mind never went to any other place."

"শ্রীপুরীধামে এসে মহাপ্রভু হরিদাস ঠাকুরকে তাঁর সঙ্গে শ্রীপুরীতে এনেছিলেন আর তাঁর নিজের ঘরের পাশে একটা ঘর দিয়েছিলেন । শ্রীলহরিদাস ঠাকুর বলতেন, 'আমার জগন্নাথ দর্শন করবার অধিকার নেই । আমি অতি পাপী, যবন, নিচু জাতি, তাহলে আমি কি করে জগন্নাথ মন্দিরে যাব ?' তাই মহাপ্রভু নিজে প্রত্যেক দিন জগন্নাথদেবের মন্দিরে মঙ্গলারতিতে যাওয়ার পরে হরিদাস ঠাকুরের কাছে আসতেন ।"

SONG: Ye anila prema dhana | যে আনিল প্রেমধন
"I will break my head on a rock, I will enter into fire. Not finding the association of Sri Gauranga, who performed His Pastimes with all these associates, Narottam Das weeps."

SONG: Ei-bara karuna kara | এইবার করুণা কর
"O worshippable Vaisnava, be merciful to me this time. O saviour of the fallen, without you there is no one. In every birth I aspire for the dust of your feet."

SONG: Ohe Vaisnava Thakura | (ওহে) বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর
"O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet. You can give Krishna, you have that power. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you."

SONG: Ki-rupe paiba seva | কিরূপে পাইব সেবা
"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!"

SONG: Dhana mora nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs' name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated hearing the name of Vaishnavs."

Your Fortune, My Fortune
"You have assembled here today for this occasion to give mercy to a fallen soul like myself. I feel humbled and very fortunate. It is very difficult to get the darshan of Vaishnavs. When I am giving initiation, do you know what I am remembering?..."
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

Be Conscious and Cautious
"To live eternally in Vraja, you must enter a relationship with your Guru, after that if you practise, you can understand your destination. How can we make Gurudev happy? If we can understand it step by step, then we will be able to understand the main teaching."
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

Greatness Is Not Measured by Cloth
"Religion means we must bring the jiva souls to Krishna consciousness. Gurudev gave this duty to me, and this is not only my responsibility, it is your responsibility too. Gurudev said, 'One does not become a sannyasi just by wearing a sannyasi's clothes.'"
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

Surrender: Eye-Opener
"'Do you not know who this is? Can you not recognise Him? He is the Guru of all, He is Lord Krishna Himself! He has come to this world to awaken the souls. He took sannyas from Keshav Bharati.' Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya did not believe it."
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

Mercy Means Anugatya
"It is necessary to always think about the order of your Guru. Guru's mercy means following the order of the Guru—if you follow the order of your Guru, then you get his mercy. You can go to the market, buy chanting beads and chant on them—but it is not the same."
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

Neither Cry nor Laugh
"You must ask yourself first, 'Do you love yourself or your Guru more? Do you love the Lord or yourself more?' Examine yourself. How long will you sleep in the lap of Maya? How long will you choke and struggle in the waters of Maya?"
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

Pure Current
"This Name was chanted in many villages, but with offence, and Bhaktivinod Thakur, holding the current of devotion, preached the pure Holy Name to this world just as Maharaj Bhagirath brought the Ganges to this world."
(Spoken on the adhivas of His Divine Grace's appearance on 12 October 2015)

"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! It is not possible to conquer maya by engaging in maya. I see no other way to get relief except for the mercy of sadhus."

 

 

Sri Rupa-manjari-pada | শ্রীরূপমঞ্জরী-পদ
"The lotus feet of Sri Rupa Manjari are my wealth, my bhajan (service), my puja (worship), the wealth of my life, and whatever ornaments I may have. Her lotus feet are the very life of my life."

 

 

Amara jivana | আমার জীবন
"My life is always engrossed in sin. There is not a trace of piety within it. I have caused others so much anxiety and trouble. Such a sinner as I is shunned by devotees, and is a constant offender."

 

 

Gurudev bada krpa kari | গুরুদেব! বড় কৃপা করি’
"When, O master, will you mercifully grant this servant the qualification to do this? Then my heart will become steadfast, I will tolerate everything, and I will serve the Lord sincerely."

Remembering Early Days
"Today's day is accepted as the day of my birthday. I do not know by what pull I have come here. "Krishna is my mother, Krishna is my father"—I knew that from my childhood, I had such sukriti. Since my childhood I have always been inspired to read Srimad Bhagavad-gita."

Spiritual Guidance:
Rules and Regulations
What is favourable and what is unfavourable to devotion? What are the offences to the Holy Dham and service? What activities are considered to be devotional? How to behave and practise to please Srila Gurudev?

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Those who chant the Name and sin commit offence. What greater obstacle is there than such 'devotion'?”

Those who depend upon Krishna, who are surrendered souls,
they have no fear: only Krishna can kill.
