Sincere Enquiry

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

Every day morning we sing this kirtan: "Jivana anitya yanaha sara tahe nana-vidha vipada bara: remember that life is temporary and full of all kinds of danger." Life is always temporary, but how can you during this temporary life attain something eternal? This is what we must all understand. You must search for the eternal things, you must find where the original source is.

We must ask honestly: Who am I? Why do I suffer? What is my benefit? What is the goal? How to attain that goal? We must ask ourselves these five questions. Sanatan Goswami asked Mahaprabhu these questions and got the answers for us—these answers are given in Chaitanya-charitamrita for our benefit. If we cannot understand it, we have no hope...

If we serve the Lord, we will get super benefit. Otherwise life is about janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi (birth, death, old age, and disease). If we do not understand these things and always hear the antithesis, it is bad for us...

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.'

 

Samsara-davanala
'I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is very expert in the arts performed by the sakhis to fulfil the Forest Couple's Love Play, and is thus very dear to Them.'
