Trap of Emotion

Trap of Emotion

There is a simple self test; try to think like this: I, my mind, body, soul, house, husband, children are His property. I am like a trustee appointed by Him and obliged to see that His property is kept well and prospers. – We must stand with both legs in this world of bitter realities and try to make it fragrant with Krishna’s fragrance.

Once Śrīla Bhakti Vedanta Vaman Gosvāmī Mahārāja went for a preaching tour to North-24 Parganas. There was one Brahmachari in the party who wanted to make a close relationship with a household wife by addressing her as boudi (wife of elder brother), which is surely...

Any sevā done, for that –how much kṛpā one can get- this lies in the hand of Bhagavan

The true meaning of loving, affectionate service to Śrī Kṛṣṇa is to engage in His service according to His direct advice, moods and innermost desires. No one else can know this subject matter better than His anukūla-śakti, Śrīmatī Rādhikā. She is the embodiment of pure love for Kṛṣṇa, always absorbed in the mood of serving Him, and She is thus the topmost among all sādhus.

We Gauḍīya Devotees must shout like lion to preach this aprākṛta siddhānta vichar of Śrīla Prabhupāda the Great– without any fear or compromise.

The Highest Conception of Conduct

So Arjuna, you take advantage of this and boldly declare to the public that My devotee who gives himself wholly unto Me can never come to ruination. Even if he may be seen to be outwardly doing something wrong – he will be saved. His successful life is assured. By this declaration, you will get the benefit of becoming righteous and have the chance of attaining eternal spiritual peace. Whoever can understand this and has the courage to declare that My exclusive devotee is never subject to ruination – he, in turn, gets his chance to come to this path of exclusive devotion, and he will attain eternal peace.”

The Multitude of Divine Realms of the ONE

Man’s comprehension has access to the idea of different infinite Divine realms only in a successive manner, not simultaneously. In its totality it is inconceivable (acintya). According to the bhakti-shastrams and the lila-bibliography, above all the works of Sanatana, Rupa, Raghunatha and Jiva Gosvami of the Caitanya school, one should think of the infinite realm of eternal being-knowledge-joy (sat-cit-ananda) as a sphere, having no end in any of its dimensions, neither inwards, nor outwards, but with an infinite number of cross sections.
