Tue, 16 July 2019 (Sri Guru Purnima)
Lying and Bribing
"We have made a promise to the Lord that we will serve Him, but we have not been able to keep our promise. Instead, we always want something from the Lord, we always expect the Lord to serve us, but we do not want to serve the Lord."

Sri Bhakti Siddhanta Vani
A quote of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad that is printed and hung on the wall at the veranda of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj and many of the temples: "If someone does not consider it necessary to faithfully follow their Guru and the Vaishnavs, their endeavour to serve the Lord is not service to the Lord—it is service to maya."

Sri Guru-Tattva: The Captain of Your Boat
"If you serve your Guru properly, if you have devotion to the Guru, then you will be able to remove the bondage with the modes of material nature, and through that relationship with your Guru you can get service to the Lord and finally reach your destination."

In honour of Srila Sanatan Goswami Prabhu's disappearance:

Sri Sanatan-Siksa
The first lecture in the cycle of lectures given by His Divine Grace Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj in 2015, dedicated to the teachings of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu and Srila Sanatan Goswami Prabhu.

Sri Rupa-Sanatan Siksa (EPUB file, 0.5 Mb)
"Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Sri Rupa-Satana Siksa, read and expounded by His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj." An electronic version of the published previously online matter available now for download, reading and worshipping on phones, tablets, eBook readers, etc.

 

SONG: Sri Sad-Goswamy-Astakam | শ্রীশ্রীষড়্­গোস্বাম্যষ্টকম্
"I offer my respectful obeisances unto the Six Goswamis, namely Sri Rupa Goswami, Sri Sanatan Goswami, Sri Raghunath Bhatta Goswami, Sri Raghunath Das Goswami, Sri Jiva Goswami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Goswami, who are always engaged in chanting the Holy Name of Krishna and dancing. They are just like the ocean of love of God, and they are popular both with the gentle and with the ruffians, because they are not envious of anyone. Whatever they do, they are all-pleasing to everyone, and they are fully blessed by Lord Chaitanya. Thus they are engaged in missionary activities meant to deliver all the conditioned souls in the material universe."

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."

SONG: Ye anila prema-dhana | যে আনিল প্রেমধন
"Where has Advaita Acharya gone? Where are my Svarup, Rupa, Sanatan? Where is my Raghunath? Where are the saviours of the fallen souls?"

One-Pointed Hearts
"There is no scarcity of visaya-vistha (stool of material world). If you eat all those other things, do you think you will get the taste for the Lord? If you eat outside food, listen to outside kirtans, this is hodge-podge devotion (panchmisali bhakti)! We do not want to behave like prostitutes—we do not go this side, that side, that side; our conception is one direction, our heart must be one-pointed otherwise we can never get the Lord."

In honour of Sripad Ajita Krishna Brahmachari:

A Miracle and Wealth of Our Mission [Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj]
"Ajita Krishna Brahmachari was an ideal servitor of Srila Guru Maharaj. I am surprised to see his mood of service. I did something, no doubt, but he used ten times more energy for the service of Guru Maharaj! That was his peculiarity. That type of all-rounder brahmachari was the wealth of our mission."

 

The Tireless Servitor [Sri Gaudiya Darshan]

শ্রীপুরীধাম মাহাত্ম্য-মুক্তা-মালা: শ্রীরঘুনাথদাস গোস্বামীর শ্রীপুরীধামে আগমন ও ভজন
"আপনারা রঘুনাথদাস গোস্বামীর কথা নিশ্চয় শুনেছেন । যখন রঘুনাথ দাস গোস্বামী খবর পেয়েছিলেন যে, মহাপ্রভু সন্ন্যাস গ্রহণ করে কাটোয়া থেকে শান্তিপুরে এলেন, তিনি তখন শীঘ্র করে মহাপ্রভুর কাছে গেলেন । তিনি অল্প বয়স থেকে মহাপ্রভুর কাছে চলে যেতে চেষ্টা করলেন । তিনি বারবার মহাপ্রভুর কাছে যেতেন কিন্তু মহাপ্রভু তাঁকে বারবার ফিরৎ পাঠিয়ে বললেন, 'বাড়ি ফিরে যাও! বাতুল হইও না !'"

শ্রীপুরীধাম মাহাত্ম্য-মুক্তা-মালা: পরিশেষ
"কালকে আমাদের রথযাত্রা সম্পন্ন হয়ে গেল । আপনারা গুরু-বৈষ্ণবের কৃপায় রথযাত্রা খুব সুন্দর ভাবে, সুষ্ঠু ভাবে কাটিয়ে দিলেন । বহু কষ্ট করে এসেছেন, বহু কষ্ট করে যাচ্ছেন—কিন্তু কষ্ট না করলে ভগবানকে পাওয়া যাবে না । এই অল্প দিনের জন্য এসে আপনারা কষ্ট করে ভগবানের জন্য ভগবানের প্রসাদ গ্রহণ করে ছিলেন । সেটা তো খুব বড় ভাগ্যের ব্যাপার ।"
