Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta

 

Published in March 2015, this book has been prepared at the express request of Om Visnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. It is his desire that Srila Jagadananda Pandit's bright and concise instructions guide devotees in their practice and preaching.

 

"Serve Gora! Serve Gora! Serve Gora! Brother, there is no Guru in this world other than Gora. If you want to serve Gora, make your heart sincere. Give up deceit and serve Gora's feet. Gora knows your thoughts, so how will you cheat Him? When you are sincere, you will understand Gora's teachings. If you go to satisfy the minds of others, you will only cheat yourself. Gora knows your thoughts, so how will you hide your heart from Him? Gora says, 'Behave like Me and follow My instructions if you want good fortune.'"

"...The Name is all-powerful, grants all desired ends, and naturally makes the world joyful. The Name is the shelter of the shelterless, the saviour of the fallen. The Name should be served everywhere and always. The Name gives all types of liberation, entrance into the spiritual world, and love for the Lord."
