Gauḍīya Goṣṭhī Pati Śrī Śrīla Bhakti Siddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvami Ṭhākura Prabhupāda–Paramahaṁsa- Jagat Guru has given a statement in his Bhagavata-tatpary (The purport of Śrīmad-bhāgavataṁ) lecture about Śrī Kalki-avatār that –“Śrī Kalki Deva is the expression of utsāha (enthusiastic mood) rati vira rasa. With full enthusiastic mood Kalki Deva will kill those impious populations. To destroy impious population need a strong effort (enthusiastic mood).
Gauḍīya Goṣṭhī Pati Śrī Śrīla Bhakti Siddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda Paramahaṁsa Guru said that— “You have already left the way of praṇipāt –paripraśna to avoid connection with the absolute truth and you have accepted the way of tarka path (logic) to get lost forever in the ocean of Maya. What we can do for you!”
Śrīla Gurudeva is antaryāmī, we can never make fool of him, rather he can make fool of us by watching our interest for collecting lābha, pūjā, pratiṣṭhā .
Bonded souls — they are bound to have some material conception about pure Guru-Vaiṣṇava, this is their chronic disease
We cannot say that my Gurudeva has no knowledge about English or mathematics, or Sanskrit, this kind of conception is totally wrong. Rather we should think that it is there, but I am unable to see. If we think that Śrīla Gaura Kishore das Baba has no knowledge about English and mathematics, then our darśana is incomplete.
“‘My dear Vaiṣṇava, seeing a person like you is the perfection of one’s eyesight, touching your lotus feet is the perfection of the sense of touch, and glorifying your good qualities is the tongue’s real activity, for in the material world it is very difficult to find a pure devotee of the Lord.’ ”
Those mātājis they cannot act as ācārya to give dikṣā or sannyāsa but can give śikṣā if at all they are tattva –vettvi-viduṣi realized souls (Part 3)
According to the following Vedic śāstra females are prohibited from being dikṣā gurus or forming disciplic successions. So to concoct and fabricate that females can accept sannyāsa and females can give sannyāsa and accept sannyāsa is totally condemned and bogus insulting all four Vaiṣṇava sampradāyas.
To run Gauḍīya Maṭha by the kṛpā of our previous Gauḍīya guru-varga and to run a society is not the same
Those who want to proclaim that I am the disciple of such and such Sad Guru-Vaiṣṇava; be sure that they want just to use the name and fame of that Vaiṣṇava for their own enjoyment. Most of us want to utilize Gurupadma for our own sevā to get lābha, pūjā, pratiṣṭhā etc. Many of them coming to Gauḍīya Maṭha with the motive to enjoy taking prasādaṁ three or four times in a day very easily without any trouble and stay there very safely without any problem. Some of them coming with the motive to get honour and position in Gauḍīya Maṭha because of their material qualification.
So, all over the world we should circulate this guru tattva if you want to satisfy Prabhupāda. Don’t be busy with rāgānugā-bhajan right now. If there is no strong foundation of guru-Vaiṣṇava tattva then all our so-called rāgānugā-bhajan is one kind of drama. Nothing else. Even one cannot start hari-bhajan without realizing guru-Vaiṣṇava tattva—this is the siddhanta vichar of Śrīla Prabhupāda.
Proficiency in performing activities is not a symptom of devotion to the guru, or guru-bhakti. Bhakti means to remain subordinate and submissive to the Lord’s loving servants, the Vaiṣṇavas.
Gaṅgā Devi, having taken her birth from the Lotus Feet of Viṣṇu, is no other than a Vaiṣṇava, and as such is an object of our worship. Therefore, to try to wash away the filthy dirt of a sinner by engaging her services will be adding more sins to his credit. A Vaiṣṇava should always be the object of our worship and devotion.
So, from all those incidents we can understand that pure devotees never feel any fear or anxiety in any situation, rather they see everything as the arrangement of the Supreme Lord. Without having this kind of feeling how will it ever be possible to do bhajan.
Gauḍīya Goṣṭhī Pati Śrī Śrīla Bhakti Siddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda used to say that— “The Lord Śrī Gaurasundar, puts his devotees in various difficulties and association to test their patience and strength of mind. “He also said that— “This material world is a place of painful testing.” Further Śrīla Prabhupāda told that— “When our desire matching with the desire of Bhagavan, then we can feel happy in true sense.”
Those mātājis they cannot act as ācārya to give dikṣā or sannyāsa but can give śikṣā if at all they are tattva –vettvi-viduṣi realised souls (Part 2)
Gaṅgāmātā Gosvāmīnī, Hemalata Ṭhākurāṇī , or Śrīmatī Janava Ṭhākurāṇī —they all are eternal pārṣada of Bhagavan, I mean svarūpa śakti vilāsa vigraha of Bhagavan. They are completely beyond the limit of deha dharma (dharma of material body) or mano dharma (dharma of material mind). The question or judgment of man or woman is surely only applicable in this material world (on this material platform), but still, we know that all jivattmas are śakti tattva of Bhagavan (taṭastha-śakti), though originally, they are beyond Māyā (śuddha attma tattva).
