THE ULTIMATE REALIZATION IS BHAGAVAN NOT THE IMPERSONAL BRAHMAN

Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

REALIZING THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH
Factually, one who has got real realization, he knows the Absolute Truth is realized in three features, according to one’s capacity. The Absolute Truth is one. The example may be given: just like the sun-god, the sun planet, and the sunshine. They are one. But according to the capacity, we are, generally, we can realize the sunshine only. But sunshine is not the perfect realization of the sun. It is partial realization. Brahmeti paramatmeti. The full realization is sac-cid-ananda-vigrahah. Isvarah paramah krishnah sac-cid-ananda-vigrahah [Bs. 5.1]. Person. Vigraha means person.

The Purpose of Lord Caitanya’s Descent

 

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja

Excerpts from Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja’s “Necar Sprinkles on Australia”

We shall continue our reading from Caitanya-caritamrta, Third Chapter, which explains who Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is, and how and why He came to this world.

Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu

Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja tells us that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Sacinandana Gaurahari, is Krsna Himself, Svayam Krsna. He is not only Bhagavan, but Svayam Bhagavan 1, Vrajendranandana Krsna. This Krsna is eternally situated with all His attributes, and with His power, which is personified in the form of Srimati Radhika. Even if the sun could be separated from its heat and light, Radha and Krsna can never be separated.
