Sacrifice Your Life
"People will not listen to you because they have too much attachment to materialist life—they cannot sacrifice anything; but you must sacrifice your life for your guru, Vaishnavs and Bhagavan. That is called surrender."

Keep Sankirtan Fire Ablaze

উলুবেড়িয়ায় হরিকথা (First Programme at New Uluberia Temple)
ওঁ বিষ্ণুপাদ শ্রী শ্রীল ভক্তি নির্ম্মল আচার্য্য মহারাজের পদ্মমুখনিঃসৃত শ্রীহরিকথামৃত: "যাঁরা এখানে উলুবেড়িয়ায় সিনিয়র ভক্তরা আছেন, তাঁরা অনেক দিন ধরে চেষ্টা করছেন, অনেক দিন ধরে আপনাদের গ্রামে গ্রামে, দরজায় দরজায় গিয়ে বলেন, ‘বল কৃষ্ণ কহ কৃষ্ণ কর কৃষ্ণ শিক্ষা’—এই কথা ভিক্ষা করছেন আপনাদের জন্য । যাঁর ভাগ্য হয়েছে, যাঁর পূর্ব্ব পূর্ব্ব জন্মের সুকৃতি ছিল, তাঁরা এই সাধুসঙ্গের প্রভাবে এসে সাধুসঙ্গ করেন, তাঁদের হৃদয়টা একটু পরিষ্কার হয়েছে, হৃদয়টা নির্ম্মল হয়েছে । ওই সিনিয়র ভক্তরার এখন অনেক বয়স হয়ে গিয়েছে, কিন্তু তাঁরা আপনাদেরকে নবদ্বীপ, পরী, বন্দাবন, অনেক জায়গায় জায়গায় নিয়ে যান যাতে আপনি সত্যিকারের কৃষ্ণপথে আসতে পারেন—তার জন্য তাঁরা প্রাণ চেষ্টা করে গিয়েছেন ।"

Sat, 18 January 2020 (Disappearance of Srila Lochan Das Thakur)
Main Goal
"We are fallen souls, but on the other hand we are also very fortunate because we have got connection with Mahaprabhu's line, Srila Rupa Goswami's line—we have taken shelter of a bona fide guru and we are trying to follow his order."

In honour of Srila Lochan Das Thakur:

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: 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."

Composed by Srila Lochan Das Thakur:

SONG: Akrodha paramananda | অক্রোধ পরমানন্দ
"The anger-less, prideless, supremely joyful Nityananda Ray wanders throughout the towns. Going from door to door to the homes of the lowly and fallen souls, He distributes the Hare Krsna mahamantra."

SONG: Nitai gunamani amara | নিতাই গুণমণি আমার
"Nitai, the jewel of all good qualities, my Nitai, the jewel of all good qualities, brought a flood of divine love and inundated the earth. Lochan Das says, 'Anyone who did not serve Nitai knowingly committed suicide.'"

SONG: Parama karuna | পরম করুণ পহুঁ দুই জন
"Nitai and Gaurachandra are the two most merciful Lords, the crest-jewels of all Avatars, the only source of joy. 'Fallen into samsara, I never aspired for Their feet. Now Yamaraj subjects me to my karma,' says Lochan Das."

SONG: Ke yabi ke yabi bhai | কে যাবি কে যাবি ভাই
"The Lord's Names are the ferryboat, Sri Guru is the captain, and the outstretched arms in the sankirtan are the oars. All souls have been delivered by the winds of divine love, only Lochan Das has remained behind..."

 

vaisnavera guna-gana karile jivera trana
suniyachhi sadhu-guru-mukhe
"Singing the glories of the Vaishnavs rescues and protects the jiva soul. I heard this from the mouth of sadhus and my Guru."
"If we give some honour, give some glorification to the Vaishnavs, it is actually for our benefit. It is for our own benefit that we do some ceremonies, some festivals, glorifying the Vaishnavs. It is necessary for our spiritual life, and it is one of the bhaktyanga, one of the practising processes. That is why we make Vaishnavs' disappearance and appearance festivals."
(Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj)

Monthly Preaching in Malaysia
(14 January 2020 | 17 photographs, 1.5 Mb)
To support and spread the mission of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math in Malaysia, devotees participate in monthly preaching programmes in downtown Petaling Jaya (Kuala Lumpur). Sharing photographs from the latest event.

 

In honour of Sriman Mahaprabhu's sannyas:


Today:
"According to solar calculation, it was on the day of Makara-sankranti, an auspicious conjunction of the stars, that Nimai Pandit went to Katwa to take sannyasa, the renounced order of life. The ordinary public was very much enraged, and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu began performing kirtan, chanting Hare Krishna and dancing madly. And the angry mob grew, sometimes creating a disturbance. In this way, the whole day passed with no decision. The night passed in sankirtana. And the next day, Nimai's will prevailed, although there was still some opposition. Next afternoon, the sannyasa function began..." (Continue reading >>>)

Sri Nimai Sannyas (English, Bengali, an audio recording)
Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj's poem expressing the grief-stricken hearts of the residents of Nabadwip: "Vishvambhar, the son of Jagannath Mishra, who resides in Nabadwip, Sachi's Nimai, has taken sannyas. A tumult of cries filled the sky—Sachi's Nimai has taken sannyas!"

From Sri Sri Prema Dhama Deva Stotram:
laksa-lochanasru-varsa-harsa-kesa-kartanam
koti-kantha-krsna-kirtanadhya-danda-dharanam
nyasi-vesa-sarvadesa-ha-hutasa-kataram
prema-dhama-devam eva naumi gaura-sundaram

"Sri Gaurasundara departed from Nabadwip and went away to become a sannyasi (monk), leaving behind his family members and friends whose eyes were filled with tears. He accepted the staff and waterpot as his only possessions, the emblems of a renunciate. When his long hair was cut off and his head was shaved, thousands of voices sang the holy names. The devotee's eyes shed rivers of tears, since they knew he was going into the world and leaving them behind. From that time, whoever saw him in the red garments of a sannyasi cried out loud in grief. I sing with joy the unending glories of my sweet Lord, my golden Gaurasundara, the one and only divine abode of pure love."

In honour of Sripad Yadavendu Bhakti Chandan's disappearance:

Sripad Yadavendu Bhakti Chandan [GaudiyaDarshan.com]
"...He was a senior man, he was very experienced and honourable, but he treated me with humility and all his other good qualities. Later, I was his servant for one month in Vrindavan. Sometimes Srila Guru Maharaj told me, 'In the evening, give him a garland.' Guru Maharaj gave him the title 'Bhakti Chandan'."

In Remembrance of Sri Bhakti Chandan Prabhu [GaudiyaDarshan.com]
"Today, being separated from the direct affection of Srimat Yadavendu Bhakti Chandan Prabhu, we are bearing jewel-less hearts. Personally, I received so much of his auspicious association. When we have teeth, we do not understand their value. Today, if I could meet him again, then, just by getting a touch of his good association, I would attain even greater good fortune."

“The Name is everyone's natural wealth, and chanting the Name is not difficult: simply by moving your lips you can chant the Name. If you cannot do even that, then you can remember the Name.”

      

Jar, Stool, and Banana Skin
'Why do we not get energy? Why do we not get happiness through our service? Because we have some material desire inside—desire for something else. This material desire is like stool, discard it and you will get happiness.'

THE TEN OFFENCES TO
THE HOLY NAME:
1) Criticise sadhus, Vaishnavs
2) Consider Lord Siva and gods to be independent of Lord Krishna
3) Consider Guru to be an ordinary mortal man
4) Criticise scriptures
5) Interpret the Name with the help of a dictionary, etc.
6) Consider the Name imaginary.
7) Sin and chant to remove the sin.
8) Consider chanting equal to pious activities.
9) Instruct faithless people in chanting, inattentive chanting.
10) Remain attached to things, your body, etc.


 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Supreme Godhead, I offer my obeisances unto You. O Damodara! O Ananta! O Visnu! O Master! O my Lord, be pleased upon me. By showering Your glance of mercy upon me, deliver this poor ignorant fool who is immersed in an ocean of worldly sorrows, and become visible to my eyes.'
শ্রীশ্রীদামোদরাষ্টকম্

 

When some material things come to your mind, you must remove them immediately because if you give food to your mind, your mind will become strong and it can take you away from the service.
