“The great scripture Srimad-Bhagavatam, compiled by Maha-muni Vyasadeva from four original verses, describes the most elevated and kindhearted devotees and completely rejects the cheating ways of materially motivated religiosity. It propounds the highest principle of eternal religion, which can factually mitigate the threefold miseries of a living being and award the highest benediction of full prosperity and knowledge. Those willing to hear the message of this scripture in a submissive attitude of service can at once capture the Supreme Lord in their hearts. Therefore there is no need for any scripture other than Srimad-Bhagavatam.” Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Adi-lila, 1.91

The Vedic culture is considered to be the most ancient and mysterious in the scholarly circle. The great spiritual dictator Sri Krsna Dvaipayana Vyasadeva is known to be the deliverer of the Vedic message in its present form as such the great Vyasa is held in uncommon reverence in all authentic various schools of Vedic interpreters.



THE WORD ‘KRISHNA’ IS NOT AN ALLEGORY

Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda


By Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda

Through words, as with their other senses, ordinary men gain knowledge. The languages derived from Brāhmī, Kharoṣṭhī, Sānkī, Puṣkarāsādī and so on are the sources of that knowledge. But such men are guided by secondary meanings, which are more or less different from the primary meanings of words. The desire to attain any manifest object of this world by means of these words should be deemed to be in opposition to the supreme.
 



KALI YUGA THE AGE OF QUARREL AND HYPOCRISY

 

From the translations and purports of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

The age of Kali is the most condemned age due to its quarrelsome features. Kali-yuga is so saturated with vicious habits that there is a great fight at the slightest misunderstanding. Those who are engaged in the pure devotional service of the Lord, who are without any desire for self-aggrandizement and who are freed from the effects of fruitive actions and dry philosophical speculations are capable of getting out of the estrangements of this complicated age.

The leaders of the people are very much anxious to live in peace and friendship, but they have



THE ENEMY EGO AND REAL EGO

Excerpted from “Loving Search for the Lost Servant – Chapter Two”

By Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj


Here, everything is but a reflection of the perfect world. Originally everything is there, including all types of service, but here we have only a perverted reflection. Leaving this variegated world behind, we should not attempt to merge into non consciousness so that we won’t be able to feel any pleasure or pain. At present we are under the influence of our enemy ego. Real ego exists in the spiritual world. All experience is found there, but it is full of beauty and charm.

This year on the 5th of March 2015 is Lord Caitanyas appearance day. This is a talk by Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja. Given at Sri Keshavaji Gaudiya Matha, on the divine birthday of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in Navadvipa, India: March 14, 2006 pm

After the completion of Lord Sri Krsna's pastimes in Vrndavana and Dvaraka in Dvarapa-Yuga, He was thinking very deeply. He considered, "I went to the material world and tasted the moods and relationships of dasya (servitude), sakhya (friendship), vatsalya (parental affection) and madhurya-rasa (conjugal love). Although I did so, however, I was not completely satisfied."



CAN YOU SHOW ME GOD?

From the booklet Beyond Liberation.

Based on the wonderful teachings of Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja.

CAN YOU SHOW ME GOD?

Once, in India, there was a king who desired to see God. Calling for his chief minister, he asked, "Can you show me God? Can you clearly tell me what God is doing?" The minister, although highly learned, could not immediately think of an appropriate answer to the king's question, so he requested that the king grant him three days to determine a suitable reply. The king agreed but cautioned that an unsatisfactory answer would drastically reduce his faith in him as a minister. The minister returned to his residence and, with much intensity, researched all of the books in his library with the hope of finding an acceptable answer to the king's question.
