Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


Prabhupada: Sa amrtatvaya kalpate [Bg. 2.15]. Amrtatva. Here, in this material world, we are put into mrtatva, subject to birth, death, old age and disease. But there is another position where there is no birth, death, old age and disease. So which position we should like — birth, death, old age and disease, or no birth, no death, no old age, no disease? Which one we should like?

WHY WE DONT EAT MEAT

Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

The Vaishnava philosophy teaches that we should not even kill plants unnecessarily. In the Bhagavad-gita (9.26) Krishna (God) says: "If someone offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit, or a little water, I will accept it."

The Peacocks Dance to Kṛṣṇa’s Flute Melody

After preparing lunch for Kṛṣṇacandra and Baladeva, Yaśodā along with Nanda Bābā follows Them for a great distance as They take the cows out to graze for the day. Finally, after bidding Them farewell for the day, they return home. After cooking for Kṛṣṇa, Śrīmatī Rādhikā and Her sakhīs return to Yāvaṭa. As Rādhikā’s sakhīs sit near Her, each of them in their own specific parties as taṭastha (neutral), svapakṣa (belonging to Rādhikā’a own group), and suhṛda (friendly), they all begin to meditate on Kṛṣṇa. They become deeply spellbound, and when He sometimes appears to their internal vision, they become enthralled in viraha-rasa. Seeing how Rādhikā is especially immersed in viraha-rasa and oblivious to all external considerations, the sakhīs call out to Her and bring even more remembrance of Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes to Her by speaking this verse:



THE TINY WORLD OF MODERN SCIENCE

1untitled

During a morning walk in April of 1973, at Venice Beach, Los Angeles, Śrīla Prabhupāda discusses modern science and its high priests:

Śrīla Prabhupāda: “They claim to have millions of dollars’ worth of knowledge, but if you ask them a question, they simply give you a post-dated check. Why should we accept it? They cannot even produce a spear of grass through their biological or chemical experiments. Nonetheless, they are claiming that the creation is produced by some chemical or biological method. Why does no one question all this nonsense?”

Srila Prabhodananda Saraswati Thakura writes in his Sri Vrindavana Mahimamrta 14th chapter 4th verse.

“Śrī Rādhā Ṭhākurāṇī is the embodiment of mahābhāva. (mahabhava. adhirūḍha-mahābhāva — highly advanced ecstasy; CC Madhya 23.58.) She is the repository of all good qualities and the crest jewel among all the lovely consorts of Lord Kṛṣṇa.”



THE CREST JEWEL OF INQUIRY

The Origin of the Living Entity

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja

Friday, 2000, Badger (New Braja) California, USA

In his discourse below, Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja discusses a conversation between Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Sanatana Gosvami, from Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami's book, Sri Caitanya-caritamrta. Srila Sanatana Gosvami is playing the role of a conditioned soul who is seeking divine self-awareness and freedom from material miseries. He has inquired about his own true identity, beyond the body.

 

Crest Jewel of Enquiry

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja: Srila Sanatana Gosvami inquired from Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, "I have come to this world, but I do not know who I am. Who am I?"
