Full Service Sway

"Sri Ekadasi" (Sri Sri Prema Vivarta)

SONG: Suddha-bhakata | শুদ্ধ ভকত-চরণ-রেণু
"I carefully observe the holy days related to Madhava, they are the mother of devotion."

SONG: Sri hari-vasare | শ্রীহরি-বাসরে হরি

Parental Sacrifice

Today in the calendar: Gaura Dashami. Vijay Utsav of Sri Ramachandra. Appearance of Sri Madhva Acharya.

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj: "Even if you do not know anything about the Vaishnav mentioned in the calendar, you must still give them 'jay' on this day."


 

In honour of Srila Madhva Acharya:

"Madhva Acharya also stayed here with his disciples for some time as a resident of the Nabadwip Dham. Gauranga-sundar mercifully revealed His most enchanting form to Madhva Acharya in a dream. Smiling, Gaurachandra said to Madhva Acharya, 'Everyone knows that you are My eternal servant. When I appear in Nabadwip, I will follow your lineage. Now, carefully eradicate illusionism and false scriptures from all regions, and establish the glory of the Lord's Deity form. Later, I will develop your pure conception.' Saying this, Gaurachandra disappeared. Madhva Acharya awoke and then fainted. Madhva Acharya then cried, wondering, 'Will I ever see that beautiful golden form again?' Then a divine voice came from the clear sky, 'Serve Me secretly, and you will come to Me.' Madhva Acharya became resolute and defeated the mayavadis in all directions."

Sri Nabadwip Dham Mahatmya, Chapter 15

 

Foundation of Surrender
"It is a very auspicious day today—the holy appearance day of Sri Madhvacharya, also today is vijaya maha-mahotsav of Lord Ramachandra. It is a very auspicious day, and we are getting some chance to speak some Hari-katha, to practise sravanam, kirtanam."

Sri Ekachakra Temple
"It was Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur's desire to establish a temple in Sri Ekachakra Dham, but he did not live a long life—he only stayed in this world for sixty-four years—and he did not live to fulfil his desire. Yet, by his mercy, by the mercy of Param Gurudev and by Gurudev's desire, we managed to acquire this land here in 2008."

About Nityananda Prabhu

Forging Your Destiny
"Not everybody comes to practise Krishna consciousness. Some come to goggle, some come for entertainment. There are different kinds of desires. Everybody does not have the same desires. That is why, we cannot bring everyone to this path. Those who have such fortune, who are destined to come, they come."

Sri Ekachakra Dham: Our Fortune To Be Here
"We have come here by a great fortune. If you only think about the dust of this holy dham, then you will think that you must circumambulate this holy abode walking on your head. The Lord Himself wandered in this land. Nityananda Prabhu is non-different from Mahaprabhu, the Lord Himself."

Jaya 'guru-maharaja'
'You are endowed with inconceivable genius, affection, gravity, and magnanimity. You are a thunderbolt atop the mountain of mundane knowledge, and the conduit for divine revelation.'
জয় ‘গুরু-মহারাজ’
