Sri Govardhan Puja (2): Seva-Adhikar

Eternal Stumbling Block

"I offer my obeisance unto the divine form of the devotee-avadhut Srila Gaura Kisor Das Babaji Maharaj, who is a honey-bee at Sri Gaurasundar's lotus feet and a servant of Srimati Radharani imbued with deep loving attachment."


Srila Gaura Kishor Das Babaji Maharaj
The transcendental pastimes and character of a great Vaishnav of our sampradaya: "'Why are you staying here in Radha Kunda? You must come to Nabadwip. My lila is not in Vrindavan, now My lila is going on in Nabadwip, so you must come here.' And he came here...."

Srila Gaurakishoradas Babaji Maharaj
(An article written by Bhagavan Sri Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad and published in the Harmonist in honour of the disappearance day of Srila Gaura Kishor Das Babaji Maharaj:)
"We cannot be eligible for the discipleship of Srila Thakur Bhaktivinode, whom we may be disposed to honour on account of his display of scientific scholarship, unless we are cured of all our scholastic vanities through the realisation of the knowledge of transcendence by unconditional submission to the feet of Srila Gaurakishoradasa Babaji."

Sri Srimad Gaura-Kishor-Namaskar Dasakam | শ্রীশ্রীমদ্­গৌরকিশোরনমস্কারদশকম্
"O Divine Master of my Divine Master, my most venerable preceptor, you are supremely worshippable in the group of the foremost associates of Sri Gauranga. Although I remain deep in the mud of offenses, I (a fallen soul) am begging you for your causeless mercy. O Gaura Kisora, again and yet again do I make my obeisance unto you."

 


 

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: Vaisnava thakura dayara sagara | বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর দয়ার সাগর
"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. Mercifully give me a drop of faith and bestow upon me the wealth of Krishna's Name."

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! 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."

"One day, Gaurahari left the Gundicha Temple and sat in the Jagannath Vallabha garden. It was pure Ekadasi, and the Lord spent the whole day and night chanting the Name of Krishna..."

SONG: Suddha-bhakata | শুদ্ধ ভকত-চরণ-রেণু
"I carefully observe the holy days related to Madhava, they are the mother of devotion."

Disciple's Dedication
"You will get so many gurus in this world, but you will not find a proper disciple so easily. If you only wear a dhoti, put tilaks, wear the kanthi-mala, these are external things; initiation is about devotion and it comes from the heart."

Mind's Trap
"You do not know whether your life is getting better or worse, that is why whatever the situation is, it is always safe to follow the Guru's instruction. Devotional life is another world—you cannot get any devotional property without the Guru."

Ekadasi: Main Focus Is Service
"We always observe Ekadasi. One time, when somebody asked Gurudev about the glorification of Ekadasi, Gurudev showed that it is not necessary to hear the explanation or glorification of Ekadasi—Gurudev tells you to follow Ekadasi, and we must do that."

On Chastity and Rules

Thirst for Service
"Our duty in this life is to as much as possible be surrendered to Gurudev's lotus feet and preach Gurudev's message. The main thing is what kind of service Gurudev wants and to what extent you can make him happy, to what extent you can make Vaishnavs happy."

Service Relation
"The relation between a Guru and a disciple is not like the relation between a shopkeeper and a customer. We think that since we have taken the mantra we have become a disciple, but it is not correct. It is necessary to take initiation, but it is more important under whose guidance you are doing service after that."

Sanatan-Dharma: Universal Religion
'Everything in this world is born and exists for the service to the Lord, and the sanatan-dharma (your religion) is to use everything for the service to the Lord. It is not only my religion, or your religion, everybody's religion should be one.'

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Krishna mercifully frees souls from samsara if they even once earnestly call out to Him.”

You must understand what you should do and what you should not do.
