His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
22 December 2011

 

Emana durmati. What does durmati mean? What kind of 'bad' is it? Mind always goes towards bad things, always does bad things. Samsara bhitare padiya achhinu ami: I have already fallen into family attachment. Tava nija-jana kona mahajane pathaiya dile tumi. Prabhu, You sent here one person, a Guru. Kahila amare giya. What did that Guru tell me?

Tomare tarite navadvipe avatara. You do not know but Krishna Himself has come to this world, appearing in Nabadwip under the name of Sri Krishna Chaitanya. Toma hena kata dina-hina jane karilena bhava-para. He came to rescue us—to rescue the souls like you and me! We have to cross the river, but without His mercy we cannot do it, and He has come to take us across.

Vedera pratijna rakhibara tare. He promised, "I will come in the Age of Kali." Rukma-varna. Whose varna (colour) is rukma (golden)? Rukma is Radharani's color—He hid His own colour and took the color of Radharani. Vipra-suta. Vipra means a brahmin, suta means a son: He came as a son of a brahmin. 'A brahmin' means who? Jagannath Mishra.

Nanda suta yini chaitanya gosani. He who is the son of Nanda Maharaj became now Chaitanya Gosai. Nija-nama kari' dana. What did He donate to us? He gave everybody His own Name (nija Nama)! Bhagavan Krishna's Name, Beauty, Pastimes are nondifferent from the Lord.

Se katha suniya asiyachhi, natha "I heard that, so I have come to You, Prabhu. I am surrendering at Your lotus feet." Bhakti Vinod Thakur is telling his own story... If we tell it, Krishna will give His mercy—if we cry to Lord Nityananda, He will give His mercy, so Bhakti Vinod Thakur is crying...

 


 

(prabhu he!)
emana durmati samsara bhitare
padiya achhinu ami
tava nija-jana kona mahajane
pathaiya dile tumi [1]

O Lord! I am very wicked-minded and have fallen into this material world, but You have sent a great soul, Your associate (to rescue me).

daya kari more patita dekhiya
kahila amare giya
ohe dina-jana suna bhala katha
ullasita ha'be hiya [2]

Seeing me so fallen and being merciful, he came to me and said, "O humble soul, listen to this wonderful message and your heart will rejoice.

tomare tarite sri-krsna-chaitanya
navadvipe avatara
toma hena kata dina-hina jane
karilena bhava-para [3]

"Sri Krishna Chaitanya has appeared in Nabadwip to deliver you. He has brought many humble souls just like you to the shore of the ocean of material existence.

vedera pratijna rakhibara tare
rukma-varna vipra-suta
mahaprabhu name nadiya mataya
sange bhai avadhuta [4]

"To fulfil the prophecies of the Vedas, He has appeared with a golden complexion as a brahman's son bearing the name 'Mahaprabhu' and driven all of Nadia (all the world) mad with divine love in the company of His brother Nityananda.

nanda suta yini chaitanya gosani
nija-nama kari' dana
tarila jagat tumi-o yaiya
laha nija paritrana [5]

"Sri Chaitanya, who is Krishna Himself, has distributed His own Name and delivered the world. Go also and accept your deliverance."

se katha suniya asiyachhi, natha!
tomara charana-tale
bhakati-vinoda kandiya kandiya
apana-kahini bale [6]

O Lord, hearing this message, Bhakti Vinod has come to the soles of Your feet. Crying, he tells his story.

Abhidheya:
the Main Practice
'Why do we do kirtan? Why do we do service? We must understand it, then we will get happiness through our service.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord, although You are able to give all kinds of benedictions, I do not pray to you for the boon of impersonal liberation, nor the highest liberation of eternal life in Vaikuntha, nor any other boon [which may be obtained by executing the nine processes of bhakti]. O Lord, I simply wish that this form of Yours as Bala Gopala in Vrndavana may ever be manifest in my heart, for what is the use to me of any other boon besides this?'

We keep desires inside, we do not show them at first, but it is like a dormant fire
inside ash. It will slowly, slowly grow, and will eventually come out.
