Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

Forty-six years before the beginning of Kali-yuga, Vishnuchittha, one of the twelve great Alwar Vaishnava saints of the Sri Sampradaya predicted: "There will come a race which will tread the Earth with raised hands and vertical tilaka on their foreheads, who will chant the names of Hari; this will destroy the influence of Kali." (Divyaprabhanda 1:10).

Jaya Sri Radhe!

Appreciation and service of a Divine Peron's elevated Rasa is the eternal religion of the jivas.

"Each and every living entity is originally attached to a particular type of transcendental service, because he is eternally the servitor of the Lord". - Srimad Bhagavatam 3.9.11, purport

"According to the laws of nature, whether at the time of Paraśurāma or at the present, if the government becomes irresponsible and sinful, not caring for brahminical culture, there will certainly be an incarnation of God like Paraśurāma to create a devastation by fire, famine, pestilence or some other calamity. Whenever the government disrespects the supremacy of the personality of Godhead and fails to protect the institution of varṇāśrama-dharma, it will certainly have to face such catastrophes as formerly brought about by Lord Paraśurāma." [Prabhupada from Srimad Bhagavatam 9.16.18-19] .

. Prabhupāda: So this instruction of Ṛṣabhadeva is very, very important. Try to understand. Our this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is a protest to the modern way of civilization. "

"So here is the thing, you see, that Krsna does not say that "You become a nonviolent." No. Never says that. When there is a question of fighting for the right cause, you must fight. There is no question of becoming nonviolent. You see?"

Srila Prabhupada

"If one simply comes to that platform of spontaneous love for the spiritual master, then very quickly he will get love of God, or Krishna, and his all hankerings and lamentations of life will be finished. That is the process. Just like when two friends meet and, if the friend is also with his dog, the gentleman pats his dog first, is it not? So the friend becomes automatically pleased, his dog being patted. I have seen it in your country sometimes when I used to walk in the Regents Park early mornings. So it is like that, the spiritual master is the pet dog of Krishna, and if he is pleased so Krishna is also pleased. That is the process.

Srila Prabhupada Letter Bombay 4 January, 1973

William Arz ; Srila Prabhupada: "So Kṛṣṇa has enemies. Arisudana. And He has to kill them. Kṛṣṇa has got two businesses: paritrāṇāya sādhūnāṁ vināśāya ca duṣkṛtam [Bg. 4.8]. Miscreants... They are miscreants. The demons who challenge Kṛṣṇa, who want to compete with Kṛṣṇa, who want to share with the property of Kṛṣṇa, they are all enemies of Kṛṣṇa, and they should be killed.....So real guru is never to be killed, but the so-called guru has to be killed. The so-called, pseudo guru, false guru, he should be killed." Bhagavad-gita 2.4-5 -- London.

"Unfortunately, when the acarya disappears, rogues and nondevotees take advantage and immediately begin to introduce unauthorized principles ............The acarya, the authorized representative of the Supreme Lord, establishes these principles, but when he disappears, things once again become disordered."

(Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.28.48, purport)

Quote -From SB-By His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami-Srila Prabhupada ----

  "Even if one is not situated in such a transcendental position, if he simply approves of such a transcendental life, he also becomes very dear to Krishna." (Teachings of Lord Caitanya, Chapter 14) .

Krishna Consciousness Movement is for training men to be independently thoughtful and competent in all types of departments of knowledge and action, not for making bureaucracy. Once there is bureaucracy the whole thing will be spoiled. There must be always individual striving and work and responsibility, competitive spirit, not that one shall dominate and distribute benefits to the others and they do nothing but beg from you and you provide. No. - Letter to Karandhara, 12/22/7 .

"I prefer to represent Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's creed in an extremely contaminated place...
"The East is captured by the glamour of Western civilization, so Western civilization must first be crushed. Then its glamour will vanish, and the whole world will come to join the campaign of divine love of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu."
(Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Prabhupada)

In this age,it is more important to create devotees then to construct temples.
Srila Prabhupada


Janardan Das Thats true prabhu, you are among the few who I can see that is not compromised and who is indeed preaching Srila Prabhupadas true potency. Brace for impact...the purge is coming.
"In direct proportion to how elevated one ascends in one's understanding of Truth (satya), the smaller one's circle of associates naturally becomes. While the most general of truths are easily accepted by the majority of people with little difficulty or resistance, the more particularized, esoteric and breathtaking the degree of Truth is, the fewer are the number of people fully capable of appreciating it. The greatest truths are known only by the very few. Thus, Patanjali terms the state of liberation kevalam, or distinctiveness. The rarest of those very few are the sad-gurus, the true spiritual masters. It is these liberated beings especially whom we must approach in our pursuit of the most elevated Truth." - Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya

Lord Caitanya says that "Every one of you become the spiritual master, every one of you. Why one, two? Every one of you." "Oh, spiritual master is very difficult job." No. No difficult job. Caitanya Maha... Amara ajnaya: "Just try to carry out My order. That's all. Then you become spiritual master." And if you interpolate, if you put something nonsense, rubbish, to show your so-called rascal's education, then it is spoiled. Immediately spoiled. And if you present as it is, then it is pure. amara ajnaya guru hana tara' ei desa
yare dekha, tare kaha ‘krsna'-upadesa
[Cc. Madhya 7.128]

Srila Prabhupada: “Somebody was criticizing me that “Swamiji, you are introducing this Hare Kṛṣṇa movement. People are becoming coward. They simply chant Hare Kṛṣṇa.” So I replied that “You will see the power of Hare Kṛṣṇa movement in due course of time.” He required… Because there were two battles in India: the battle between Rāvaṇa and Rāma, Rāma-Rāvaṇa, the battle of Rāmāyaṇa; and another battle was Battle of Kurukṣetra. And in these two battles the hero was Vaiṣṇava and Viṣṇu. In the Rāma-Rāvaṇa battle Lord Rāmacandra was there and His devotee Hanumān, Vajrāṅgajī. Similarly, in the Battlefield of Kurukṣetra, Kṛṣṇa was there and His devotee Arjuna was there. So Vaiṣṇavas, they do not simply chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. If there is need, they can fight under the guidance of Viṣṇu and become victorious. A Vaiṣṇava’s one qualification is… Out of the twenty-six qualifications, one qualification is dakṣa,expert. If there is need of fighting, they can fight like very expert. That is also needed. Kṛṣṇa consciousness does not mean one-sided. Kṛṣṇa as all-pervading, the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement also should be all-pervading. It should touch everything, even politics, sociology, everything, if required. That is the aim. Because Kṛṣṇa’s mission is: yadā yadā hi dharmasya glānir bhavati bhārata [Bg. 4.7], paritrāṇāya sādhūnāṁ vināśāya ca duṣkṛtām [Bg. 4.8].

Srila Prabhupada has told us:

"Machines mean unemployment for the many. The tractor they're using means unemployment for bulls and plowmen. Then the bulls must be killed. This is going on. Unemployment, then kill them. Send all the men to fight in Vietnam and kill them. As soon as there is overpopulation of unemployed, they declare war so that people may be killed."
(Morning Walk, Mayapur, February 12, 1976)

So these wars are not right wars, righteous wars. No. They are play of the diplomats, politicians--they engage. When they cannot manage things very nicely, they engage people into war. That's all. Divert the attention. But war is not meant for that.

[Bhagavad-gita Lecture 2.32 London, September 2, 1973]

"The Krishna Consciousness movement can solve all the problems of life, all the problems in the world. Social, political, philosophical, religious, economic—everything can be solved by Krishna consciousness. It is very scientific and authorized. It is not a mental concoction or a sentimental movement. It is a most scientific movement. If you are sober, if you are actually reasonable, you'll understand that this Krishna consciousness movement is the most sublime movement for the welfare of the whole human society. If we are actually anxious for peace and tranquility in society, then we must be very serious about understanding Krishna consciousness."

Excerpt from a lecture by Srila Prabhupada (Founder - Acharya, ISKCON)


His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada once remarked to his disciples, "You must become a general like me. I cannot be defeated."

Srila Prabhupada was commissioned by another undefeated general, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Thakur, who against all opposition established the legitimacy and influence of the Gaudiya Vaisnava siddhanta in India. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta met resistance from every quarter: professional gurus, prakrta-sahajiyas, caste goswamis, ecumenists, eclecticists, et al., but anyone who dared to sally forth and meet his challenge was ultimately trounced.

Srila Prabhupada: "Ritvik. Yes" ;

Padmagarbha Das "One should not become a spiritual master unless he has attained the platform of uttama-adhikari [the highest stage of spiritual realization] " (The Nectar of Instruction, text 5,

"There is no possibility that a first-class devotee will fall down,
even though he may mix with non-devotees to preach. Conviction and
faith gradually increase to make one an uttama-adhikari, a first-class
devotee." (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 22.71, purport]

"When one has attained the topmost position of maha-bhagavata, he is
to be accepted as a guru and worshipped exactly like Hari, the
Personality of Godhead. ONLY such a person is eligible to occupy the
post of a guru." (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 24.330,

"It is to be understood that the conditioned soul is tightly tied by
the ropes of illusion. [...] Because the bound cannot help the bound,
the rescuer must be liberated. Therefore, only Lord Krishna, or His
bona fide representative the spiritual master, can release the
conditioned soul." (Bhagavad-gita As It Is 7.14, purport, 1972 ed.)

"A bona fide spiritual master is in the disciplic succession from time
eternal, and he does not deviate at all from the instructions of the
Supreme Lord [...]"
(Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 4.42, purport)

"A spiritually advanced person who acts with authority, as the
spiritual master, speaks as the Supreme Personality of Godhead
dictates from within. Thus it is not he that is personally speaking.
When a pure devotee or spiritual master speaks, what he says should be
accepted as having been directly spoken by the Supreme Personality of
Godhead in the parampara system."
(Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Antya-lila 5.71, purport)

"You are correct when you say that when the Spiritual Master speaks it
should be taken that Krishna is speaking. That is a fact. A Spiritual
Master must be liberated."
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, June 10th, 1969)

".... such an acarya, or spiritual master, should be considered
non-different from Krishna, that is, he should be considered the
incarnation of Lord Krishna's potency. Such a personality is
krsnalingita-vigraha, that is, he is always embraced by the Supreme
Personality of Godhead, Krishna [...] He is the guru, or spiritual
master, for the entire world, a devotee on the topmost platform, the
maha-bhagavata stage, and a paramahamsa-thakura, a spiritual form only
fit to be addressed as paramahamsa or thakura." (Sri Caitanya-
caritamrta, Madhya-lila 25.9, purport)

"Unless one is a resident of Krishna Loka, one cannot be a Spiritual
Master. That is the first proposition. A layman cannot be a Spiritual
Master, and if he becomes so then he will simply create disturbance
[...] So to summarize the whole thing, it is to be understood that a
bona fide Spiritual Master is a resident of Krishna Loka." (Srila
Prabhupada Letter, June 10th, 1969)

"One should understand the Spiritual Master to be as good as I am,
said the Blessed Lord [...] `the Spiritual Master is the sum total of
all demigods. That is, the acarya has been identified with God
Himself." (Srila Prabhupada Lecture, February 1936)

"The spiritual master, or acarya, is always situated in the spiritual
status of life. Birth, death, old age and disease do not affect him
[...] therefore, after the disappearance of an acarya, his body is
never burnt to ashes, for it is a spiritual body. The spiritual body
is always unaffected by material conditions." (Srimad-Bhagavatam
10.4.20, purport)

"The conclusion is that a spiritual master who is authorized and
empowered by Krishna and his own guru should be considered as good as
the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself. That is the verdict of
Visvanatha Cakravarti: saksad-dharitvenasa. [...] As Hari is free to
act as He likes, the empowered spiritual master is also free. As Hari
is not subject to mundane rules and regulations, the spiritual master
empowered by Him is also not subject." (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta,
Madhya-lila 10.136, purport)

"Unless one takes shelter of a bonafide, fully Krsna conscious spiritual master,
there is no chance of understanding Krsna... ....Only one who has surrendered to a pure devotee of Krsna can understand Krsna." [SB 7-5-32]

"Unless one is initiated by a bonafide spiritual master, ALL his devotional activities are USELESS.
A person who is not properly initiated can again descent into the animal specie." [Madhya Lila 15 .

"One should take initiation from a bonafide spiritual master coming in the disciplic succession, who is AUTHORIZED by his predecessor spiritual master. This is called dikshan-vidhana. [SB 4.8.54]

"A siksa guru [instructing guru or priest] who instructs against the instructions of the spiritual master
he is not a siksa guru. He is a demon! Sometimes the diksa guru [initiating guru] is not present
always. Therefor one can take learning, instructions from an advanced devotee. That is called siksa-guru.
But siksa-guru does not mean he is speaking something against the teachings of the diksa-guru. He is not a siksa-guru. He is a rascal. Because that is offense. Guru avjna, defying the authority of guru.
This is the first offense. So, one who is offensive, how can he make advance in chanting? He cannot make. Then everything is finished, in the beginning!" [Bg. 17:1-3, 07-4-74, Hawaii]

"Guru cannot be self-made. No. There is NO such single instance throughout the whole vedic literature.
And nowadays, so many rascals they are becoming guru without any authority. That is NOT guru.
You MUST be authorized!" [Bg. 4.2]

"As for your next question, can only a pure devotee deliver others,.......anyone
if he is a pure devotee he can deliver others, he can become spiritual master. But unless he is on that platform he should not attempt it. Then both of them will go to hell, like the blind man leading the blind." [letter to Tusta Krsna dasa, 12-14-72]

"Therefore, having a bonafide spiritual master and serving him, and pleasing him, and getting his mercy is essential. Otherwise there can be NO advancement in Krsna consciousness. And unless the spiritual master is a pure devotee of Krsna, then he has no potency to give Krsna. He is simply a cheating rascal!
So, in fact, above all the rules and regulations and offenses I have mentioned, the most important thing, the essential thing, which is required, if you want to come to the stage of purely chanting the Hare Krsna mantra,
is, you MUST have a bonafide spiritual master, who is a pure devotee of Krsna. Without having a bonafide spiritual master you can chant Hare Krsna forever, but will not be able to advance, because Krsna does
not reveal Himself in this way. He ONLY reveals Himself to those devotees who surrender to, and serve, and please His pure devotee!" [letter to his London disciples, July 1969]

"Unless one takes shelter of a bonafide, fully Krsna conscious spiritual master, there is no chance of understanding Krsna.... Only one who has surrendered to a pure devotee of Krsna , and has taken the dust of his lotus feet can understand Krsna..... One must take shelter of a self-realized spiritual master, that is the way to return home, back to Godhead." [SB 7.5.32 purport]

"It is illegal to become a spiritual master if one is unable to deliver the disciple". [S.B. 28.7]

May 28, 1977, Vrndavan
Satsvarupa Maharaja:"Then our next question concerns initiations in the future, PARTICULAR AT THE TIME WHEN YOU ARE NO LONGER WITH US . We want to know how initiations would be conducted."

Srila Prabhupada:"Yes, I shall recommend some of you to act as officiating acarya." [ 'Officiating' is the performance of a function on behalf of another]

Tamal Krsna Maharaja: "Is that called ritvik-acarya?"

Srila Prabhupada: "Ritvik. Yes".

Prabhupada: No, no, I can understand. The thing is that everyone can take advantage of this statement that "I am perfect." Just like so many rogues and bogus persons come. But it is your duty to know whether he is perfect. It is your duty to test whether he is perfect. That requires intelligence. If you unintelligently accept some bogus person as perfect, that is your fault. You must be assured that "The person from whom I am asking, he is perfect." Then you take it. Otherwise don't take. Caracas, February 19, 1975 Heidi Lipis; "Based on this quote, defend the perfect! Defend Srila Prabhupdada! Do not waste your time defending the imperfect. We show compassion to vicitms, to the innocent, but not to those who take positions of leadership and wrongfully mislead innocents."

SBSSP; “We should not become subordinate (nicata) to non-devotees, but to devotees, from whom we should beg mercy and show respect. The mahajanas instructed us not to display humility before everyone. To show humility towards envious atheists like Ravana and the pretentious brahmana is not vaishnave-seva or trnad-api-suhisnuna. If we transgress this instruction we will never become qualified to chant the holy name or attain name ruci; rather, our actions will result in becoming envious of them. Rama bhakta Hanumans burning of lanka is real trnad-api-suhisnuna." ( Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati - Sri Bhaktisiddhanta Vaibhava 2.222 ).

SP; Tṛṇād api sunīcena does not mean that if a Vaiṣṇava is insulted or Viṣṇu is defamed, you remain silent, "I am tṛṇād api sunīcena." No. At that time you should become fire. That is the teaching of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Just like Hanumānjī, he's Vaiṣṇava. But when there was need for the service of Lord Rāmacandra, he set fire in the Lanka. So when there is viṣṇu-vaiṣṇava-ninda,defamation, you should not remain tṛṇād api sunīcena. You should take steps. This is the instruction. Anyway, Vaiṣṇava is never angry, but that does not mean that you tolerate insult to Viṣṇu and Vaiṣṇava. No. He should be angry. Bhakta-dveṣi. Just like our student Govinda dāsī in Hawaii. In a meeting she became very angry when the so-called incarnation of God and God... Perhaps you know this incident. And the people did not say, of course, Govinda dāsī, but they heard her husband, Gaurasundara. But she became very angry, that "These rascals," and so many things she spoke. (chuckles) So she did right, like a heroine. I very much liked it. So we should be very much angry. When? When there is anything against God and God's devotee." Srila Prabhupada Lecture on SB 1.3.26 -- Los Angeles, October 1, 1972
"... in the absence of a suitable king to curb irreligious tendencies, educating the people systematically in the teaching of Srimad-Bhagavatam will clear up the hazy atmosphere of corruption, bribery, blackmail, etc." – Srimad Bhagavatam (1972 edition, original and unedited).

prema dhana vina vyartha daridra-jivana
dasa kari vetan more deha prema dhana

Life without Love is useless and poor they say,
Appoint me in Thy service, Oh Lord with Love as my pay.



 "Similarly, we must find out the essential part of a living being which is always companion with him. That part of constant companion of the living being is his eternal quality, and the eternal part of the living being's quality is his eternal religion."



Lord Shiva has a very unique and significant position in the cosmic manifestation. In fact Lord Shiva is the most powerful, second only to Lord Vishnu. Shiva is an expansion of Lord Krishna. Revealed scriptures explain that Krishna has 64 qualities.  Lord Brahma posses 78% of these qualities and Lord Shiva possesses 84% of these qualities. Since living entities are also like Brahma so they also possess 78% of these qualities but in lesser extent. None of them possess all 100%.  


Srila Prabhupada explains, “The living being can never possess attributes like Shiva, Vishnu or Lord Krishna. A living being can become godly by developing the seventy-eight-percent transcendental attributes in fullness, but he can never become a God like Shiva, Vishnu or Krishna. He can become a Brahma in due course: - Srimad Bhagavatam 1.3.28 purport


Lord Shiva has connection with the material nature but Lord Vishnu (or Lord Krishna) is transcendental to material nature.The position of Lord Shiva is very beautiful explained in Brahma – Samhita (Verse 45),”Just as milk is transformed into curd by the action of acids, but yet the effect curd is neither same as, nor different from, its cause, viz., milk, so I adore the primeval Lord Govinda of whom the state of Shambhu is a transformation for the performance of the work of destruction”.

>(Srila Prabhupada Evening Darsana February 15, 1977, Mayapura) Don't be disappointed. Kṛṣṇa will act through His movement and kill them, these demons. How it will be done, that you cannot know now, but it will be done. Let us remain true soldiers. That's all. And if it is a fight, suppose we die in the fight. The fight means with vow, with determination either to gain victory or die. Because it is fight against māyā, why we shall be afraid of being killed? Where there is fight, one must know that "Either I am going to be killed or gain victory." Jīvo vā māro vā. Those who are devotees, either they live or they die—the same thing. While they live they are serving Kṛṣṇa; when they die they will serve Kṛṣṇa. Jīvo vā māro vā. Tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti mām eti (BG 4.9). He goes to Kṛṣṇa. (laughs) So what is the loss? We are working for Kṛṣṇa, and if we die we go to Kṛṣṇa. So what is the loss? Same business.


Srila Prabhupada

 " Make your own field and .... act on my behalf." - Śrīla Prabhupāda: July 31, 1977.


 Journalist: I think an awful lot of our readers, and an awful lot of people in the United States, are terribly confused with the many people who claim to be gurus and gods and who pop up in this country, one after the other after the other, and they say that—

Srila Prabhupada: I can declare that they are all nonsense.

Journalist: I wonder if you could elaborate on that a little bit.

Srila Prabhupada: I can say, furthermore, they’re all rascals.

Journalist: For example, the famous one who sells meditation mantras?

Srila Prabhupada: He is rascal number one. I say it publicly.

(1968 Magazine Interview, Los Angeles)


""Human society, however, has artificially created a type of civilization which makes one forgetful of his relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead.""

SB. 4.14.20
The Supreme Personality of Godhead is worshiped by the great demigods, controllers of universal affairs. When He is satisfied, nothing is impossible to achieve. For this reason all the demigods, presiding deities of different planets, as well as the inhabitants of their planets, take great pleasure in offering all kinds of paraphernalia for His worship.

All Vedic civilization is summarized in this verse: all living entities, either on this planet or on other planets, have to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead by their respective duties. When He is satisfied, all necessities of life are automatically supplied. In the Vedas it is also stated: eko bahunam yo vidadhati kaman (Katha Upanisad 2.2.13). From the Vedas we understand that He is supplying everyone’s necessities, and we can actually see that the lower animals, the birds and the bees, have no business or profession, yet they are not dying for want of food. They are all living in nature’s way, and they all have the necessities of life provided—namely eating, sleeping, mating and defending.

Human society, however, has artificially created a type of civilization which makes one forgetful of his relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Modern society even enables one to forget the Supreme Personality of Godhead’s grace and mercy. Consequently modern civilized man is always unhappy and in need of things. People do not know that the ultimate goal of life is to approach Lord Visnu and satisfy Him. They have taken this materialistic way of life as everything and have become captivated by materialistic activities. Indeed, their leaders are always encouraging them to follow this path, and the general populace, being ignorant of the laws of God, are following their blind leaders down the path of unhappiness. In order to rectify this world situation, all people should be trained in Krsna consciousness and act in accordance with the varnasrama system. The state should also see that the people are engaged in satisfying the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This is the primary duty of the state. The Krsna consciousness movement was started to convince the general populace to adopt the best process by which to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead and thus solve all problems.

The Supreme Lord says:

"I have arranged so much misery, pain, trouble and danger, not to make you suffer, but to teach you that all this misery is unnecessary; so you will search for that happiness which is eternally desirable, the joy that is eternally adorable". 
- Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura


syaika-nisvasita-kalam athavalambya

jivanti loma-vila-ja jagad-anda-nathah
visnur mahan sa iha yasya kala-viseso
govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

"The Maha-Vishnu, into whom all the innumerable universes enter and from whom they come forth again simply by His breathing process, is a plenary expansion of Krishna. Therefore I worship Govinda, Krishna, the cause of all causes."
Therefore one should conclusively worship the personal form of Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead who has eternal bliss and knowledge. He is the source of all forms of Vishnu, He is the source of all forms of incarnation, and He is the original Supreme Personality, as confirmed in Bhagavad-gita."(Brahma-samhita 5.48)

Also in Brahma Samhita Lord Krishna is described as the "original candle" from which many candles are lit, and they appear the same, but the original is Lord Sri Krishna!
translated by Srila Prabhupada.

4 defects  are bhrama (the tendency to commit mistakes), pramāda (the tendency to be illusioned), vipralipsā (the tendency to cheat) and karaṇāpāṭava (imperfect senses). 

Narayana. Narayana is what has happened, what is happening and what will happen.

Maha Upanisad:

eko vai narayana asin na brahma na isano napo nagni-samau neme dyav aprithivi na naksatrani na suryah

"In the beginning there was only Narayana. There was neither Brahma, nor Siva, nor water, nor fire, nor sky, nor earth, nor the stars, nor the sun."

Jay Gau Guru Gauranga Gandharvika Giridhari

"It is said in the śāstras that by once uttering the holy name of the Lord, the sinner gets rid of a quantity of sins that he is unable to commit. Such is the power of uttering the holy name of the Lord. There is not the least exaggeration in this statement. Actually the Lord's holy name has such powerful potency. But there is a quality to such utterances also. It depends on the quality of feeling. A helpless man can feelingly utter the holy name of the Lord, whereas a man who utters the same holy name in great material satisfaction cannot be so sincere. A materially puffed up person may utter the holy name of the Lord occasionally, but he is incapable of uttering the name in quality. Therefore, the four principles of material advancement, namely (1) high parentage, (2) good wealth, (3) high education and (4) attractive beauty, are, so to speak, disqualifications for progress on the path of spiritual advancement. The material covering of the pure spirit soul is an external feature, as much as fever is an external feature of the unhealthy body. The general process is to decrease the degree of the fever and not to aggravate it by maltreatment. Sometimes it is seen that spiritually advanced persons become materially impoverished. This is no discouragement. On the other hand, such impoverishment is a good sign as much as the falling of temperature is a good sign. The principle of life should be to decrease the degree of material intoxication which leads one to be more and more illusioned about the aim of life. Grossly illusioned persons are quite unfit for entrance into the kingdom of God."

Waves crash upon the beach

Broad sea ever shining stretching out to infinity

Her waves crash producing ripples in the sand

A ripple the life of every man

So precise, so obscure, so soon to disappear

Sky and sun, on they shine, "Never mind! " they cry, "Never mind" !

You man! You thing of clay

Rest lightly upon the earth today

You time here short, like a man-child's play

You may tarry long, but soon enough your time will be gone

And other rows of ripples dawn on distant shores

And tho the crow calls "Nevermore!"

Yet still we cling to our dream within a dream.

and though we die, our heads were held high

as we searched for Love never ending,

a Radha-Krsna-love Supreme.

"You should also distribute our books as far as possible. If you do this sincerely, then you will be successful." SP.

Madhusudana Dasa SRILA PRABHUPADA SPEAKS OUT!!! "Therefore our movement is being checked in the Western countries that this is a brainwash movement. Brainwash movement, that we are injecting some ideas by psychology, mental control, and our people they are taking to it, and it is spreading like epidemic. How to check it? Therefore they are now taking action how to stop this Hare Krsna movement in Europe and America. They are trying. Of course, we are not afraid of this attempt. They will never be successful, rest assured, because we are pushing Krsna consciousness. Krsna was attempted to be killed from the very beginning of His life. That is the nature of this material world, "How to kill God," "God is dead." This is their attempt. So from the life of Krsna we can understand that so many attempts were made by the demons and the raksasas to kill Krsna, but actually Krsna killed them all. So if you are sincere, if you follow the principles and push on this Krsna consciousness movement, nobody can kill you. You'll go forward, rest assured. We are not going to be killed. That they are perceiving, that this movement is spreading like epidemic, and the young men of Europe and America, they're taking seriously. Professor Stillson Judah already has given his conclusion that "This movement is not going to stop. It will go on." That's a fact. Krsna cannot be killed, neither His movement cannot be killed. Rather, those who are attempting to kill, they will be killed. But we must be very sincere, serious, follow the regulative principle and chant Hare Krsna mantra as you have been taught. Follow this principle boldly, and there is no fear." HARE KRSNA!!! JAI SRILA PRABHUPADA KI JAYA!!! HARI BOL!!!

“GBC does not mean to control a center. GBC means to see that the activities of a center go on nicely. I do not know why Tamala is exercising his absolute authority That is not the business of GBC. The president, treasurer and secretary are responsible for managing the center. GBC is to see that things are going nicely but not to exert absolute authority. That is not in the power of GBC. Tamala should not do like is a fact that the local president is not under the control of the GBC.” (Srila Prabhupada letter to Giriraj, August, 1971)

. . “When the atheists, after being well versed in the Vedic scientific knowledge, annihilate inhabitants of different planets, flying unseen in the sky on well-built rockets prepared by the great scientist, Maya, the Lord will bewilder their minds by dressing Himself attractively as Buddha and will preach on subreligious principles.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam, tr. by Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, ISKCON, Los Angeles, Canto 2, Ch. 7, p. 63).

One's aim of life should be to serve the ācāryas. Ācārya upāsanam. So our ācārya in the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava Sampradāya, the śrī-rūpa sanātana bhaṭṭa-raghunātha, śrī-jīva gopāla-bhaṭṭa dāsa-raghunātha, the Six Gosvāmīns, and if we associate with them... this book, Nectar of Devotion, Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, if you read regularly, try to understand, this means you are associating with Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī directly. And if you act accordingly, then you are serving their lotus feet. Tāṅdera caraṇa-sevi-bhakta-sane vāsa. And unless you are associated with devotees, you will not be able to understand the import of the writings of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī.

The Nectar of Devotion -- Vrndavana, October 20, 1972:


Karma-yoga means karma mixed with bhakti. And bhakti-yoga means pure bhakti. Somebody is attached to some kind of work, so he is advised karma-yoga.
Lecture -- Los Angeles, December 4, 1968:


Because we have to see whether Kṛṣṇa wants it, Kṛṣṇa wants it. Kṛṣṇa wants Arjuna that "You become victorious in this battlefield and kill all of them." "Yes, I shall do that." Kariṣye vacanaṁ tava (BG 18.73). If Kṛṣṇa would have asked him, "What is this fighting? You give up. Come with Me. Go to the forest," Arjuna would have done that. So our policy is not bhoga-tyāga. Our policy is satisfaction of Kṛṣṇa. That is pure bhakti.

The Nectar of Devotion -- Bombay, December 26, 1972:

.it is a fact that the local president is not under the control of the GBC.” (Srila Prabhupada letter to Giriraj, August, 1971)

Here is injustice, so you should fight;

Śrīla Prabhupāda Says -

"The God says that "Here is injustice, so you should fight." God says that. God never says that "I am God, Kṛṣṇa. I am your friend. You sit down idly and I shall do everything." He never said that. He said that "You must fight." That is our duty, not that God has given us hands and legs and you sit down idly and let God do it. This is not devotion."

[SB: Lecture 1.2.6 - Mauritius 5 Oct 1975]


Jaya Murari Dasa quotes; >>Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead
..........."Although the demons who take possession of the government are dressed like men of government, they do not know the duty of the government. Consequently, by the arrangement of God, such demons, who possess great military strength, fight with one another, and thus the great burden of demons on the surface of the earth is reduced. The demons increase their military power by the will of the Supreme, so that their numbers will be diminished and the devotees will have a chance to advance in Krsna consciousness."… SB 9.24.59

"Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you." — St. Augustine

SPIRITNET ; A meeting place for devotees to express themselves, share Radha-Krsna culture, plan and perform seva, learn, educate, and grow their love.

"SB 2.6.43-45: I myself [Brahma], Lord Siva, Lord Vishnu, great generators of living beings like Daksha and Prajapati, yourselves [Narada and the Kumaras], heavenly demigods like Indra and Candra, the leaders of the Bhurloka planets, the leaders of the earthly planets, the leaders of the lower planets, the leaders of the Gandharva planets, the leaders of the Vidyadhara planets, the leaders of the Caranaloka planets, the leaders of the Yakshas, Rakshas and Uragas, the great sages, the great demons, the great atheists and the great spacemen, as well as the dead bodies, evil spirits, satans, jinn, kushmandas, great aquatics, great beasts and great birds, etc. -- in other words, anything and everything which is exceptionally possessed of power, opulence, mental and perceptual dexterity, strength, forgiveness, beauty, modesty, opulence, and breeding, whether in form or formless -- may appear to be the specific truth and the form of the Lord, but actually they are not so. They are only a fragment of the transcendental potency of the Lord."

Jaya Sri Krsna !

"Make your own field... and continue to be Ritvik... and act on my behalf." - Śrīla Prabhupāda: July 31, 1977.


One thing I received one letter from Gurukula regarding the Krsna Bowl contests, and I want you to know that nothing new should be added. Whatever I have introduced should remain. Nothing new should be added. New things means their brain is not clear. Carefully manage things what I have established.

Letter to: Rupanuga:

4 September, 1974
Washington D.C.

In a Dec 31 1976 press interview, Srila Prabhupada explained:

"We never compromise. All my students, they will never compromise. Why shall I compromise? If I am confident that I am speaking the truth, why shall I make compromise? Those who are not confident of his position, they will make compromise. One who does not know where he stands, he will make compromise. And if I know where I am standing, why shall I make compromise? Let others do whatever he likes. This is our position."

In a letter to Brahmananda, September 9th, 1969 Srila Prabhupada wrote:

"Our point should be that we shall take all steps for self-protection, depending on the results on Krsna. We should NOT idly sit down simply depending on Krsna. Arjuna had to fight in the battlefield, but at the same time he heard Bhagavat Gita. Our Motto shall be like that! Neither we shall fight alone, without Krsna consciousness, nor we shall give up all possible facillities".

- courtesy Padmagarbha Prabhu

Prabhupāda: So this instruction of Ṛṣabhadeva is very, very important. Try to understand. Our this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is a protest to the modern way of civilization.


"So to us everything material, without connection to Krsna, is to be rejected as stool,..." Srila Prabhupada, letter May 20, 1976.


"Yes. Anyway, follow the intruction. That is required. Follow the instruction. Wherever you remain, it doesn't matter. You are secure. Follow the instruction. Then you are secure anywhere. It doesn't matter. Just like I told you that I saw my Guru Maharaja not more than ten days in my life, but I followed his instruction. I was a gṛhastha, I never lived with the Maṭha, in the temple. It is practical."

"So there was a whole big splash of political ideology going around ISKCON (74/75). There was a book about a conspiracy from The John Birch Society that made a big hit. And Prabhupada had confirmed that yes, it's a fact, there are conspiracies and the whole material society is being manipulated by a handful of vested interest groups, demons, raksasas, who take birth on this planet just to control and manipulate." (Ramesvara Interview - page 58)

"I joined ISKCON in 1971. I know this movement.. I noticed the erosion of ISKCON about a year after the departure of Srila Prabhupada. The leaders of ISKCON are deemed as criminals by many. Srila Prabhupada once made a statement in the early seventies; many of you are here in the garbs of a devotee, but you are here to destroy - demons from the lower planetary system have taken birth on this planet just to destroy this movement. We were all bewildered by this statement of Srila Prabhupada - We wondered who were these people? Well, now we know." (Jivadhara Dasa ACBSP. New York USA - BTP Issue 42)

Maybe some of the 100's of missing tapes contain Prabhupada saying similar things? They are probably hidden or destroyed alongside tapes of Prabhupada talking more about 'ritvik' system.


"His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness"

Tamala Asura : Only you are that powerful, Srila Prabhupada. We're like...

Prabhupada: Why you are not?

Tamala Krsna: We're like the bugs.

Prabhupada:You are my disciples. "Like father, like son." You should be. Gaurangera bhakta-jane. Everyone. Therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, amara ajnaya guru hana tara' ei desa [Cc. Madhya 7.128]. He asked everyone, "Just become guru." Follow His instruction, you become guru. Amara ajnaya. Don't manufacture ideas. Amara ajnaya. "What I say, you do. You become a guru." Where is the difficulty? "And what is Your ajna?" Yare dekha tare kaha krsna-upadesa. Bas. Everything is there in the Bhagavad-gita. You simply repeat. That's all. You become guru. To become a guru is not difficult job. Follow Caitanya Mahaprabhu and speak what Krsna has said. Bas. You become guru."


Jaya Sri Krsna Caitanya, Prabhu Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Gadadhara, Srivasadi, Gaura-bhakta vrnda!

Jaja Jaya Sri Caitanya, Jaya Nityananda! Jaya Advaita Candra ! Jaya ! Gaura-bhakta-vrnda!


Hare Krişna, Hare Krişna,

Krişna Krişna, Hare Hare,

Hare Rama, Hare Rama,

Rama Rama, Hare Hare.


"...Strictly speaking, when chanting the names of the Panca-tatttva, one should fully offer his obeisances: sri-krsna-caitanya prabhu nityananda sri-advaita gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-chakta-vrnda. By chanting one is blessed with the competency to chant the Hare Krsna maha-mantra without offense. When chanting the Hare Krsna maha-mantra, one should also chant it fully: Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare."................(CC Adi Chapter 7)

"If one commits offenses in chanting the Hare Krsna mantra, he does not achieve love of Godhead even after chanting for many years....One should seriously and sincerely continue to chant the Paca-tattva names sri-krsna caitanya prabhu nityananda sri-advaita gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-bhakta-vrnda. All these acaryas will bestow their causeless mercy upon a devotee and gradually purify his heart. When he is actually purified, automatically he will experience ecstasy in chanting the Hare Krsna maha-mantra......"CC Adi Intro to Chapter 8

 "Yes. Anyway, follow the instruction. That is required. Follow the instruction. Wherever you remain, it doesn't matter. You are secure. Follow the instruction. Then you are secure anywhere. It doesn't matter. Just like I told you that I saw my Guru Maharaja not more than ten days in my life, but I followed his instruction. I was a gṛhastha, I never lived with the Maṭha, in the temple. It is practical."

om ajnana-timirandhasya jnananjana-salakaya

chakshur unmilitam yena tasmi sri-gurave namah

I was born in the darkest ignorance, and my spiritual master opened my eyes with the torch of knowledge.  I offer my respectful obeisances unto him.

nama om vishnu-padaya krishna preshthaya bhu-tale

srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine

I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who is very dear to Lord Krishna, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.

namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracharine


Our respectful obeisances are unto you, O spiritual master, servant of Sarasvati Goswami.  You are kindly preaching the message of Lord Chaitanyadeva and delivering the Western countries, which are filled with impersonalism and voidism.



Ongoing revolution is the Lord's way of breaking the containing vessels we try to trap Him in. Our attempts are like Yasoda's ropes. Hare Krsna.


“tesam evanukampartham aham ajnana-jam tamah nasayamy atma-bhava-stho jnana-dipena bhasvata”
“To show them special mercy, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.” (BG 10.11).


Mac-cittah sarva-durgani Mat-prasadat tarisyasi Atha cet tvam ahankaran Na srosyasi vinanksyasi
“If you become conscious of Me, you will pass over all the obstacles of conditional life by My grace.   If, however, you do not work in such consciousness but act through false ego, not hearing Me, you will be lost.” (BG 18.58)


Sakti buddhi hina ami ati dina

jogyate vichare kichu nahin pahi tomara karuna sara

“The Guru is not an erring mortal whose activities can be understood by the fallible reason of unreclaimed humanity. There is an eternally impassable line of demarcation between the Saviour and the saved. Those who are really saved can alone know this.” ( Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Srila Prabhupada)


We sing the following prayers everyday in front of Srila Prabhupada.  It is related to the same verse that is in Srimad Bhagavad Gita 10.11.

Cakshu dana dilo jei janme janme prabhu sei divya jnana hrdaya prakasito

prema bhakti jaha hoite avidya vinasha jate vede gaya jahara charito


Yasya deve para bhaktir

Yatha deve tatha gurau

Tasyaite kathita hy arthah

Prakasante mahatmanah
“Only unto those great souls who simultaneously have implicit faith in both the Lord and the Spiritual Master are all the imports of Vedic knowledge automatically revealed.”  Svetsvatara Upanisad 6.23



The organizational structure here at SPI;  loosely moderated anarchy;

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati;
The church that has the best chance of survival in this damned world is that of atheism under the convenient guise of theism. The churches have always proved the staunchest upholders of the grossest form of worldliness from which even the worst of non-ecclesiastical criminals are found to recoil.

It is not from any deliberate opposition to the ordained clergy that these observations are made. The original purpose of the established churches of the world may not always be objectionable. But no stable religious arrangement for instructing the masses has yet been successful. The Supreme Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, in pursuance of the teachings of the scriptures enjoins all absence of conventionalism for the teachers of the eternal religion. It does not follow that the mechanical adoption of the unconventional life by any person will make him a fit teacher of religion. Regulation is necessary for controlling the inherent worldliness of conditional souls.

But no mechanical regulation has any value, even for such a purpose. The bona-fide teacher of religion is neither any product of nor the favourer of, any mechanical system. In his hands no system has likewise, the chance of degenerating into a lifeless arrangement. The mere pursuit of fixed doctrines and fixed liturgies cannot hold a person to the true spirit of doctrine or liturgy.

The idea of an organised church in an intelligible form, indeed, marks the close of the living spiritual movement. The great ecclesiastical establishments are the dikes and the dams to retain the current that cannot be held by any such contrivances. They, indeed, indicate a desire on the part of the masses to exploit a spiritual movement for their own purpose. They also unmistakably indicate the end of the absolute and unconventional guidance of the bona-fide spiritual teacher. The people of this world understand preventive systems, they have no idea at all of the unprevented positive eternal life. Neither can there be any earthy contrivance for the permanent preservation of the life eternal on this mundane plane on the popular scale.

"Simply by reading about glorification of the Supreme Lord and the devotees, all our needs will be fulfilled. Do not be impatient for the result, but rather always chant the holy names of Krishna with patience and tolerance. The Supreme Lord will certainly not sit quietly. According to the degree of one’s sādhana, Śrī Gauraharī certainly awards one auspicious results . Service to Hari is called bhakti. You will realize that chanting of the names of Krishna is in itself bhakti. You may touch your chanting beads to the lotus feet of Śrī Gaurasundara within your mind and chant the holy names of Krishna on those beads." Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada

Posted by Rasa Manjari DD 


BG 6.30: For one who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, I am never lost, nor is he ever lost to Me.
BG 7.6: All created beings have their source in these two natures. Of all that is material and all that is spiritual in this world, know for certain that I am both the origin and the dissolution.
BG 7.7: O conqueror of wealth, there is no truth superior to Me. Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread.
BG 7.8: O son of Kunti, I am the taste of water, the light of the sun and the moon, the syllable om´ in the Vedic mantras; I am the sound in ether and ability in man.
BG 7.9: I am the original fragrance of the earth, and I am the heat in fire. I am the life of all that lives, and I am the penances of all ascetics.
BG 7.10: O son of Pr?tha, know that I am the original seed of all existences, the intelligence of the intelligent, and the prowess of all powerful men.



Chapter 9: The Most Confidential Knowledge


Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Bhagavad-gītā As It Is


A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupadas 108


BG 9.1: The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear Arjuna, because you are never envious of Me, I shall impart to you this most confidential knowledge and realization, knowing which you shall be relieved of the miseries of material existence.


BG 9.2: This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting, and it is joyfully performed.


BG 9.3: Those who are not faithful in this devotional service cannot attain Me, O conqueror of enemies. Therefore they return to the path of birth and death in this material world.


BG 9.4: By Me, in My unmanifested form, this entire universe is pervaded. All beings are in Me, but I am not in them.


BG 9.5: And yet everything that is created does not rest in Me. Behold My mystic opulence! Although I am the maintainer of all living entities and although I am everywhere, I am not a part of this cosmic manifestation, for My Self is the very source of creation.




BG 9.6: Understand that as the mighty wind, blowing everywhere, rests always in the sky, all created beings rest in Me.


BG 9.7: O son of Kuntī, at the end of the millennium all material manifestations enter into My nature, and at the beginning of another millennium, by My potency, I create them again.


BG 9.8: The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end.


BG 9.9: O Dhanañjaya, all this work cannot bind Me. I am ever detached from all these material activities, seated as though neutral.


BG 9.10: This material nature, which is one of My energies, is working under My direction, O son of Kuntī, producing all moving and nonmoving beings. Under its rule this manifestation is created and annihilated again and again.


BG 9.11: Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be.


BG 9.12: Those who are thus bewildered are attracted by demonic and atheistic views. In that deluded condition, their hopes for liberation, their fruitive activities, and their culture of knowledge are all defeated.


Fotó: Radha, miért valaha szeretlek? Nézze meg, hogyan szenvedek így eltekintve a illatos fürtök. Látod, hogy sírok, hogy megfeleljen a szerelmes részeg szemét. Lásd, hogyan fájdalmat megérinteni E virág-tender kezet. Radha miért szeretlek Mert annyira gyötrelem?



BG 9.13: O son of Pṛthā, those who are not deluded, the great souls, are under the protection of the divine nature. They are fully engaged in devotional service because they know Me as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, original and inexhaustible.


BG 9.14: Always chanting My glories, endeavoring with great determination, bowing down before Me, these great souls perpetually worship Me with devotion.


BG 9.15: Others, who engage in sacrifice by the cultivation of knowledge, worship the Supreme Lord as the one without a second, as diverse in many, and in the universal form.


BG 9.16: But it is I who am the ritual, I the sacrifice, the offering to the ancestors, the healing herb, the transcendental chant. I am the butter and the fire and the offering.


BG 9.17: I am the father of this universe, the mother, the support and the grandsire. I am the object of knowledge, the purifier and the syllable oḿ. I am also the Ṛg, the Sāma and the Yajur Vedas.


BG 9.18: I am the goal, the sustainer, the master, the witness, the abode, the refuge, and the most dear friend. I am the creation and the annihilation, the basis of everything, the resting place and the eternal seed.


BG 9.19: O Arjuna, I give heat, and I withhold and send forth the rain. I am immortality, and I am also death personified. Both spirit and matter are in Me.


BG 9.20: Those who study the Vedas and drink the soma juice, seeking the heavenly planets, worship Me indirectly. Purified of sinful reactions, they take birth on the pious, heavenly planet of Indra, where they enjoy godly delights.


BG 9.21: When they have thus enjoyed vast heavenly sense pleasure and the results of their pious activities are exhausted, they return to this mortal planet again. Thus those who seek sense enjoyment by adhering to the principles of the three Vedas achieve only repeated birth and death.


BG 9.22: But those who always worship Me with exclusive devotion, meditating on My transcendental form — to them I carry what they lack, and I preserve what they have.


BG 9.23: Those who are devotees of other gods and who worship them with faith actually worship only Me, O son of Kuntī, but they do so in a wrong way.


BG 9.24: I am the only enjoyer and master of all sacrifices. Therefore, those who do not recognize My true transcendental nature fall down.


BG 9.25: Those who worship the demigods will take birth among the demigods; those who worship the ancestors go to the ancestors; those who worship ghosts and spirits will take birth among such beings; and those who worship Me will live with Me.


BG 9.26: If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.


BG 9.27: Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer or give away, and whatever austerities you perform — do that, O son of Kuntī, as an offering to Me.


BG 9.28: In this way you will be freed from bondage to work and its auspicious and inauspicious results. With your mind fixed on Me in this principle of renunciation, you will be liberated and come to Me.


BG 9.29: I envy no one, nor am I partial to anyone. I am equal to all. But whoever renders service unto Me in devotion is a friend, is in Me, and I am also a friend to him.


BG 9.30: Even if one commits the most abominable action, if he is engaged in devotional service he is to be considered saintly because he is properly situated in his determination.


BG 9.31: He quickly becomes righteous and attains lasting peace. O son of Kuntī, declare it boldly that My devotee never perishes.





BG 9.32: O son of Pṛthā, those who take shelter in Me, though they be of lower birth — women, vaiśyas [merchants] and śūdras [workers] — can attain the supreme destination.


BG 9.33: How much more this is so of the righteous brāhmaṇas, the devotees and the saintly kings. Therefore, having come to this temporary, miserable world, engage in loving service unto Me.


BG 9.34: Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, become My devotee, offer obeisances to Me and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.


 Varna Das Prabhu said; 2015, Thank you for your sincere words and greetings, Prabhu...I hope you will have a nice life performing this wonderful spiritual work for our Srila Prabhupada...I am proud of such devotees as you are...always doing the best for the inspiration of other devotees of The Lord.

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing...".

The suras (pure devotees) always behold the supreme abode of Bhagavan Sri Visnu, just as the unobstructed eye sees the sun within the sky. (Rg Veda)

"A chanter of the kirtana of Hari is necessarily the uncompromising enemy of worldliness and hypocrisy. As a chanter of the kirtana of Hari, it is his constant function to dispel all misconceptions by the preaching of the truth in a most unambiguous form, without any influence of person, place or time. That form has to be adopted which is least likely to be misunderstood. It is his bounden duty to oppose any person who tries to deceive and harm himself or other people by misrepresenting the truth either due to malice or genuine misunderstanding. This will be possible if the chanter of kirtana is always prepared to submit to be trodden on by thoughtless people if any discomfort to himself will enable him to do good to his persecutors by chanting the truth in the most unambiguous manner. If he is unwilling to chant the kirtana under all circumstances due to consideration of self-respect or personal discomfort, then he is unfit to be a preacher of the absolute truth." Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati,

Śrīla Prabhupāda Says - The God says that "Here is injustice, so you should fight." God says that. God never says that "I am God, Kṛṣṇa. I am your friend. You sit down idly and I shall do everything." He never said that. He said that "You must fight." That is our duty, not that God has given us hands and legs and you sit down idly and let God do it. This is not devotion. [SB: Lecture 1.2.6 - Mauritius 5 Oct 1975]


SB 4.27.24, Purport: Thus jarā, the effect of old age, does not harass a devotee. This is because a devotee follows the instructions and the determination of Nārada Muni. All devotees are in the disciplic succession stemming from Nārada Muni because they worship the Deity according to Nārada Muni's direction, namely the Nārada-pañcarātra, or the pāñcarātrika-vidhi. A devotee follows the principles of pāñcarātrika-vidhi as well as bhāgavata-vidhi. Bhāgavata-vidhi includes preaching work—śravaṇaṁ kīrtanaṁ viṣṇoḥ (SB 7.5.23)—the hearing and chanting of the glories of Lord Viṣṇu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The pāñcarātrika-vidhi includes arcanaṁ vandanaṁ dāsyaṁ sakhyam ātma-nivedanam. "

 "Simply by reading about glorification of the Supreme Lord and the devotees, all our needs will be fulfilled. Do not be impatient for the result, but rather always chant the holy names of Krishna with patience and tolerance. The Supreme Lord will certainly not sit quietly. According to the degree of one’s sādhana, Śrī Gauraharī certainly awards one auspicious results . Service to Hari is called bhakti. You will realize that chanting of the names of Krishna is in itself bhakti. You may touch your chanting beads to the lotus feet of Śrī Gaurasundara within your mind and chant the holy names of Krishna on those beads." Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada

"“You cannot tolerate this misleading. People are innocent. It is our duty to become merciful upon them, to give them real knowledge. And these people are misleading. There must be strong protests against these rascals.”
(Srila Prabhupada Morning Walk, 19/4/1973

Real bhakti… that is raganuga-bhakti. This raganuga-bhakti, we have to come after surpassing the vaidhi-bhakti [regulative process]. In the material world, if we do not try to make further and further progress in devotional service, if we are simply sticking to the shastric [scriptural] regulation process and do not try to go beyond that...
The shastric process is kanishtha-adhikara, lowest stage of devotional service… This is nice beginning, but one has to go above this… If I become satisfied only with these regulative principles for worshiping… but if I have no other idea, then sa bhaktah prakrtah smrtah. Prakrta means on the material platform.
…So any devotee can fall down if he remains prakrta-bhakta. So he has to raise himself above this in the madhyama-adhikara [intermediate stage]…
Therefore, if we do not associate with the advanced devotees, uttama-adhikari, if we simply want to remain in the lowest stage of devotional service, then we are not making progress. Then we shall simply enjoy the material field, without entering into the spiritual platform.
Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam lecture, 1.2.33, Vrindavan, 12 November 1972

courtesy Visvambhara Priya dd, (SNM)

Prabhupada: "What is religious fight? Religious fight means you have got right to kill your aggressor. If somebody takes your property, if somebody sets fire in your house, if somebody kidnaps your wife, or somebody is trying to kill you, they are called aggressor. So aggressor should be killed immediately. It is not that somebody has become an aggressor, and if I say, "Now I have become a Vaishnava, I'll not be violent. I shall tolerate. Caitanya Mahaprabhu has taught us to be tolerant like the tree or the grass. So I shall become tolerant. Let him do." Just like Gandhi used to say. Somebody questioned him that "If somebody comes and violates the chastity of your daughter in your presence, what will you do?" He said, "I shall remain nonviolent." But that is not shastric injunction. This is foolishness."

anyābhilāṣitā-śūnyaṁ jñāna-karmādy-anāvṛtam ānukūlyena kṛṣṇānu śīlanaṁ bhaktir-uttamā Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu (1.1.11) “The cultivation of activities that are meant exclusively for the pleasure of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, or in other words the uninterrupted flow of service to Śrī Kṛṣṇa, performed through all endeavours of the body, mind and speech, and through the expression of various spiritual sentiments (bhāvas), which is not covered by jñāna (knowledge aimed at impersonal liberation) and karma (reward-seeking activity), and which is devoid of all desires other than the aspiration to bring happiness to Śrī Kṛṣṇa, is called uttama-bhakti, pure devotional service.”


"Most of you will fall. Actually I haven't given any of you sannyas, but I am in a war with Maya, the material energy and I need leaders. It is called in wartime Battlefield commission. There are no qualified leaders but someone has to lead the charge. So you take every fifth man, now you are lieutenant of the squad. He really is a private but we make him lieutenant for the day and he leads the charge. It is to be understood that you are not sufficiently equipped for this fight and most of you will go down"

(Srila Prabhupada Conversation with Tamal Krishna 1976 after Mayapur festival)


So this is Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's mercy that you are becoming Krishna conscious. Otherwise, it is not so easy thing; very, very difficult. Kecit kevalaya bhaktya [SB 6.1.15]. So stick to this principle.


Chant sri- Krishna -chaitanya prabhu nityananda sri-advaita gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-bhakta-vrnda. By their favor, by their mercy, we can chant Hare Krishna. And as soon as we chant Hare Krishna, we are vasudeva-parayanah.


There is no more fear. That is required. So you stick to this principle, do not forget. We have already given our ways and instruction. So don't deviate from it. Then everything is perfect and your life is successful.
(Srila Prabhupada)


"These, my disciples they are part and parcel of me. Whole mission is going on with their cooperation. But if he says that I am equal to my Guru Mahārāja, then that is offense."
Srila Prabhupada Room Conversation with Life Member, Mr. Malhotra December 22, 1976, Poona.


 "“You cannot tolerate this misleading. People are innocent. It is our duty to become merciful upon them, to give them real knowledge. And these people are misleading. There must be strong protests against these rascals.”

(Srila Prabhupada Morning Walk, 19/4/1973)

"One should never submit to another to an extent that may furnish a rascal with an opportunity of really doing harm. It is inexplicable how those gurus who live in open sin contrive nevertheless to retain the unquestioning allegiance of the cultured portion of their disciples. Such being the case, can we blame any person who hesitates to submit unconditionally to a preceptor, whether he is good or bad? It is of course necessary to be quite sure of the bona fides of a person before we accept him even tentatively as our spiritual guide. A preceptor should be a person who appears likely to possess those qualities that will enable him to improve our spiritual condition.

But the good preceptor claims our sincere and complete allegiance. The good disciple makes a complete surrender of himself at the feet of the preceptor. But the submission of the disciple is neither irrational nor blind. It is complete on condition that the preceptor Himself continues to be altogether good. The disciple retains the right of renouncing his allegiance to the preceptor the moment he is satisfied that the preceptor is a fallible creature like himself. Nor does a good preceptor accept anyone as his disciple unless the latter is prepared to submit to him freely.

A good preceptor is duty bound to renounce a disciple who is not sincerely willing to follow his instructions fully. " 

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada 
THERE IS NO ONE LIKE MY GURU - from a class on Srimad Bhagavatam 2.4.92 Bhubaneswar   Srila Gour Govinda Swami

"The Gaudiya sampradaya, the parampara of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, is a bona fide Vaisnava sampradaya. One should accept the instructions with a simple heart, which are coming from the acaryas in this parampara as it is, and practice them in one's life. Then you will get the mercy of Sriman Mahaprabhu. 

We are not speaking anything pseudo-sampradayist. We should not hear the words of pseudo-sampradayists. When Mahaprabhu ordered, "You become guru and deliver this world," that instruction has come unto my guru, Srila Prabhupada, and my guru gave me this same order. So I will never develop any duplicity or crookedness in executing this order. That means I will never come in murkha-sampradaya or kapatya-sampradaya or phalgu-sampradaya, the schools of fools, hypocrites and pretenders. I will never teach duplicity or crookedness to anybody. Those who are visayis, materialistic persons, are duplicitous, crooked and envious; they come under pseudo-sampradaya. They are selfish persons. 

Those who are under the bona fide sampradaya coming from Sriman Gauranga Mahaprabhu, they are so powerful that they kick all such sampradaya. They are always, twenty-four hours, day and night, engaged in loving service to the lotus feet of Radha and Krishna, executing the order of their guru. They never desist from rendering pure service without duplicity (niskapata seva.) An Acarya is natural, not pretending, he is not pretentious. He is not pretending as acarya. He is a natural acarya, not artificial. He is more humble than a blade of grass lying on the street and as tolerant as a tree. He gives respect to one and all, seeing Krsna in everybody and never demands respect for himself. 

Our teachings, which are coming through our parampara are true, coming from Mahaprabhu. They are our sadacara, our regulative principle. They are law for all humanity. And this law, this sadacara, has come down to us through parampara. If we disrespect it, if we don't execute in our life, if we add any deliberation, if we twist it, then we will become offenders. We will commit offence by not obeying the orders of guru. Yes, namaparadha. Then we will be far away from the lotus feet of our guru. Guru will never keep us at his lotus feet. If, in order to execute, to obey the order of my guru, it is needed to become very proud, I will never hesitate to become very proud. If it is needed to become an animal, I will never hesitate to become an animal. If it is needed to go to hell for my guru, I will never hesitate to do it. Do you follow me? That is how to execute the order of the guru. That is how to become a true follower of guru. 

I will never hesitate to do it. I will never hear from anyone but my guru. Those who are saying something different from this teaching coming through bona fide parampara, coming from Sriman Mahaprabhu - we will never listen to them. If somebody says something different, then like Bhimasena, with my fist, I will crush it. I will destroy it. I will defeat it. I am so proud. With just one speck of dust from the lotus feet of my guru, crores and crores of people of this world will be delivered. You should understand how powerful one little speck of dust of my guru's lotus feet is. There is no such a scholar as my guru. I will never accept anyone else as a scholar. There are no such teachings as those that my guru has imparted, to be found in any human being, or in any demigod, I know it very well. No one else can give such teachings. There is nothing in this world that is as heavy as a tiny speck of dust from the lotus feet of my guru. This is the follower of true parampara. I am following such parampara. This is the teaching; one should understand it very well. 

…He (Srila Prabhupada) is empowered! Can't you understand this thing? Why couldn't they (Srila Prabhupada's god brothers) do this thing? Why do they come at this time and do now, when the atmosphere is created, the platform is there, foundations are already laid, some construction is there? Now they are coming. Now you are going there, leaving ISKCON camp. Such foolishness! You are such a fool! Can't you understand this thing? Thereby they are committing such offense. [Srila Prabhupada's god brothers say] He has given only elementary knowledge ABC, nothing higher. You can't understand what he (Srila Prabhupada) has said. When a tiny seed is there, it contains, like the seed of a banyan tree, so tiny, but it contains a great banyan tree inside. You, fool, cannot understand this thing. So intolerable. As a disciple of my Guru Maharaja and as a member of his founded society ISKCON, it is our duty to keep up the prestige. Yes, it is our duty now. 




 "To deliver the devotees and annihilate the miscreants, ... I descend."




All living beings are dependent upon others in some fashion. The oysters need the water, the water needs the sun, the sun needs Godhead, and in this way, we can trace every being, and we find that not one is independent.

Relationships therefore count for a lot! Relationships are the eternal dharma of the living beings. By remembering relations with temporary persons or states, we fall subject to... lamentation as the vision comes and then goes again. To find lasting relationships, one must look to the Eternal Beings.

Out of joy and kindness, elevated persons sometimes come even to the Earth for the sake of helping us and pleasing Lord Krsna. These pastimes are those of the eternals, the liberated souls, and those engaged in Krsna's services. Simply by hearing and repeating and remembering thier pastimes, we gain entrance into relationships that are also eternal, we become again part of a much greater family.


"Each and every devotee has a certain type of transcendental mellow in relation to Kṛṣṇa. But in all transcendental relationships the devotee is the worshiper [āśraya], and Kṛṣṇa is the object of worship [viṣaya]." [Madhya 8.141]

"The transcendental goddess Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī is the direct counterpart of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa. She is the central figure for all the goddesses of fortune. She possesses all the attraction to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead. She is the primeval internal potency of the Lord." [Madhya 23.68]

Fotó: Radha, miért valaha szeretlek? Nézze meg, hogyan szenvedek így eltekintve a illatos fürtök. Látod, hogy sírok, hogy megfeleljen a szerelmes részeg szemét. Lásd, hogyan fájdalmat megérinteni E virág-tender kezet. Radha miért szeretlek Mert annyira gyötrelem?

whey did the CIA/NSA/NWO use dupes to poison Srila Prabhupada? the answer is here;

Satsvarupa Gosvami: The opposition is claiming that joining Krishna consciousness is not an exercise of freedom of religion, but that we are guilty of “mind control.”

Srila Prabhupada: Him whose mind is already in Krishna consciousness the “deprogrammers” want to control by force. They are guilty of mind control, not we. They kidnap him and force him to think like them.

Satsvarupa Gosvami: Many times our opposition consists of businessmen and parents of devotees. They are very alarmed.

Srila Prabhupada: They should be alarmed. If the Hare Krishna movement goes on, their culture is finished. Now we are being recognized as the enemy of maya [illusion]. A fight is a fight. They are using their tactics; we are using ours. We will prove that they have no intelligence. As long as they don’t know Krishna, they remain fools.

Satsvarupa Gosvami: One man was challenging, “What if everyone became like you devotees?” He was worried. He thought the economy would collapse if everyone took to Krishna consciousness.

Srila Prabhupada: Well, anyway, he will not take to Krishna consciousness, and the materialistic economy will go on. As long as there is a class of men like him, there is no problem—the economy will go on. “If the prisoners become reformed, how will the prison continue?” Is that a very intelligent question? Their thinking is like that. We are giving up meat, and the slaughterhouse proprietors are sorry—”How will the business go on?”—as if that were a very wonderful business. The sooner you close that business, the better. That will be good for you. Liquor shops, breweries, cigarette factories-they are all worried how business will go on. Cow slaughter is the greatest sinful activity. They don’t know what they are doing. Therefore, a thorough overhaul is required; otherwise their stool-bound brains can’t be cleansed. Yes, we are washing your brain, because you have so much stool in your brain. We are sweepers engaged on behalf of God to wash the stool from your brain.



"One should know that everything in the world other than the jiva and the holy name, are without substance."

Parallels between what is happening in the material world and what is happening in the devotee world suggest a sinister conspiracy

Nothing is as it seems. Lies are accepted as the truth and truth speakers are treated as criminals, or shunned as heretics. Enmity is fostered while real crimes are hidden. We could be talking about present day ISKCON, or we could be talking about present day USA. The parallels are eerie. In fact the parallels are so pronounced that it is almost as though the events are following some sort of master plan. Is it possible that some sort of Sinister Movement is controlling events both ISKCON and the material world ? This article will examine the parallel events and explore the possibility that there are actual demons working behind the scenes in an effort to create the maximum discord while minimizing genuine spiritual pursuits.

Before we examine the parallel events, what did Srila Prabhupada say about the present existence of actual…


Lord Krsna is equal to every living entity

Ranganath Das quotes Srila Prabhupada ;

Lord Krsna is equal to every living entity (cf Srimad Bhagavatam 3:5:38 by Srila Prabhupada).....

The Lord is equal to every living entity, just like the flowing Ganges. The Ganges water is meant for the purification of everyone, yet the trees on the banks of the Ganges have different values. A mango tree on the bank of the Ganges drinks the water, and the nimba tree also drinks the same water. But the fruits of both trees are different. One is celestially sweet, and the other is hellishly bitter. The condemned bitterness of the nimba is due to its own past work, just as the sweetness of the mango is also due to its own karma.

The idea that one must approach or take shelter of a “living” guru is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most damaging of lies within the Krishna consciousness movement. This lie was started by a few deviated disciples after Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance in order to support their claim that Srila Prabhupada had appointed them to begin accepting disciples of their own and thereby become full-fledged diksa gurus.

If you take away the need for a living guru lie, what is left unclouded in the minds of so many bewildered people is the July 9th 1977 Directive issued by Srila Prabhupada (via his secretary) wherein Srila Prabhupada’s ongoing acceptance of disciples even after his disappearance is expressed in legal form. Moreover, the hundreds of quotes by Srila Prabhupada which the ritviks have continually presented over the years may also become unclouded to the minds of thousands…


If you want to forget Kṛṣṇa

If you want to forget Kṛṣṇa

"If you want to forget Kṛṣṇa, He'll give you opportunity of māyā that you can..., you'll never remember Kṛṣṇa. You'll forget for good. And that is His kindness. 'You want to forget Me? All right. I give you so much facility that you'll never be able to remember Me.' Therefore the staunch atheist, however you argue with him, however you defeat him... Matir na kṛṣṇe parato svato vā. They cannot. They will not. Because Kṛṣṇa is arranging within: 'Forget. Don't accept it. Don't accept it.'

So this is going on. Sarvasya cāham hṛdi sanniviṣṭaḥ (BG 15.15). So for the nondevotees, He's giving facilities to forget. And for the devotees, who are sincerely seeking Kṛṣṇa's favor, Kṛṣṇa's service, He's giving memorization: 'Yes, you do like this. Do like this.' Why does He so? That is also explained, ye yathā māṁ prapadyante: (BG 15.15) 'As you want Me... If you want Me, to forget, I give you facility to forget. And if you want Me, to serve, I give you facility to serve.' That is neutrality. That is God. The rascal says, 'Why God has made one devotee and another nondevotee?' No. Not God has made. You wanted to become nondevotee? He has made you nondevotee: 'All right, you become rascal number one nondevotee.' And if you want to be devotee? 'All right, I'll make you first-class…


Tamohara dasa's bold synopsis

Posted by Tamohara d co-tp. Editor Bh.S on September 19, 2017 at 22:59 0 Comments

Tamohara Dasa said; "The nwo Luciferian elites did this (poisoning of Srila Prabhupada) with CIA and Sabbatean Iskcon-jew conspiracy. The world uberrich used the CIA to remove many back in those days, whom they did not want growing in power. So they used Tamala etc as their dupes to kill Srila Prabhupada. Eight out of eleven phony zonal acaryas were Jews... The poison used is classical CIA, and the death of their agent by car crash is also clasical CIA. Then theres Adi Kesava, CIA etc. There is a tape of agents discussing us, and saying we are no longer a threat, being too disorganized. Illuminati ie nwo elites fund both Mayapura and Bangalore, so divide and conquer.

If you follow the chain of command, you will realize that we are at war with demons, this world and others, as it always was. So our fight is with the demons, who want to stop Krsna."

An Amazing Story!

An Amazing Story!

Srutakirti: "We were on an airplane from Mexico City to Caracas and Prabhupada started taking his puffed rice, puffed rice and peanuts. He ate for about 10 minutes or so, and then he just looked and said, "OK." So I moved the puffed rice over and I gave half to Paramahamsa, the other half I had in front of me. After a few minutes, there was this stewardess, she was walking down the aisle and she stops right in front of us and she reached over, put her hand in my plate and grabbed a handful of puffed rice and threw it in her mouth. She says, "Oh, this is wonderful. What is it?" I said, "Puffed rice." She said, "Why are you eating this?" I said, "We have our own diet and we're vegetarian." She said, "Oh, is there anything else I can get you?" I looked at Prabhupada and he looked at me, he said, "Hot milk." She said, "Fine." So after about 10 minutes she comes back with three plates. She left and I turned to Prabhupada, I said, "Prabhupada, that's amazing, isn't it?" Prabhupada said, "No, women, they have a natural propensity to serve." Of course, I was thinking it was amazing that she took Prabhupada's mahaprasadam right off of my plate. Somehow or other, she got what all of us were mad after was Prabhupada's remnants. So when I travel, it's always one of my favorite stories.

One day I was giving class and I told this story, and after class a devotee boy came up to me and he said, "That's an amazing story. Can I tell you a sankirtan story?" I said, "Yes." He said, "We would go out to the villages far from all the cities in Brazil in different places. You have to go by four-wheel drive. One day we were in the rain forest really far away from everywhere, and we found this village and we did our Harinam. Then we began going door to door to distribute books. Then I went to this one house and I knocked on the door and a woman answered and tried to distribute…

We have compiled some interesting comments and questions from (and answers to) those who watched the films from the Truth Committee regarding the evidence and logical conclusions about Srila Prabhupada having been poisoned with cadmium at levels about 250 times above the normal average person. The response has been generally very positive and that the evidence has largely spoken for itself, and that the scientific proof from hair tests and audio forensics is conclusively convincing. Of course, there are those who have blocked minds or strong emotional hostility, and they invariably have not even understood what the evidence is, and they appear to have no desire to look at it openly. However, judging from the aftermath and responses, it seems the facts and evidence that Srila Prabhupada was indeed poisoned is profoundly changing the way devotees look upon many things, and especially as to what has happened since Srila Prabhupada physically departed forty years ago.

The truth will do whatever it will do. No one has created an agenda to push from manufactured or contrived allegations. The evidence speaks for itself. We should always remember that Srila Prabhupada himself stated three times that he also thought he had been poisoned. And now modern science has confirmed that his statements are accurate and prophetic. What else would we expect from Srila Prabhupada? To say something we should not take seriously, as Tamal suggested?

Preaching is the essence

Image may contain: 1 person, text

"An acarya who comes for the service of the Lord cannot be expected to conform to a stereotype, for he must find the ways and means by which Krishna Consciousness may be spread...
Therefore it is a principle that a preacher must strictly follow the rules and regulations laid down in the shastras yet at the same time devise a means by which the preaching work to reclaim the fallen may go with full force." Chaitanya Charitamrta A.L. ch. 7, purport of verses 32 and 38

''Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in them.
They say that this world is unreal, that there is no foundation and that there is no God in control. It is produced of sex desire, and has no cause other than lust.
Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world.''

[Cc. Madhya 7.128]…

"The Krishna Consciousness movement can solve all the problems of life, all the problems in the world. Social, political, philosophical, religious, economic—everything can be solved by Krishna consciousness. It is very scientific and authorized. It is not a mental concoction or a sentimental movement.  It is a most scientific movement. If you are sober, if you are actually reasonable, you'll understand that this Krishna consciousness movement is the most sublime movement for the welfare of the whole human society. If we are actually anxious for peace and tranquility in society, then we must be very serious about understanding Krishna consciousness."

Excerpt from a lecture by Srila Prabhupada (Founder - Acharya, ISKCON)

"Each and every living entity is originally attached to a particular type of transcendental service, because he is eternally the servitor of the Lord". - Srimad Bhagavatam 3.9.11, purport

"A person in ignorance of the principles of religion—who, therefore, does nothing in the matter of religion—is far better than a person who misguides others in the name of religion without reference to the factual religious principles of devotional service". - Srimad Bhagavatam 3.9.10, purport

PRABHUPADA: If you create an artificial God, it is better that He is dead so that He cannot inflict more injuries.

SRILA PRABHUPADA: Still fight must go on. Fight cannot be stopped. So fight like brave soldiers, Kṛṣṇa will help you. Don't make any compromise . .....Devotee: The outcome of the battle is already decided. Just like in Bhagavad-gītā, we've already won. We just have to keep, keep fighting. Prabhupāda: They are now feeling the pressure of the opposite party. So fight is fight. When there is fight, my Guru Mahārāja used to say, "Some of our soldiers will die. It doesn't matter." You don't expect that not a single soldier of your party will not die. No, some of them will die. Still fight must go on. Fight cannot be stopped. So fight like brave soldiers, Kṛṣṇa will help you. Don't make any compromise." Srila Prabhupada Room Conversation February 3, 1977, Bhuvanesvara:

"You are also one of the members of the GBC, so you can think over very deeply how to save the situation. It is a fact however that the GREAT SINISTER MOVEMENT is WITHIN our Society. I have not heard anything from Krsna das or Syamasundara., so all of you may try to save the Society from this dangerous position." Prabhupada´s letter to Hamsadutta. 2 september 1970 .


Rasa are of different variety. 1) raudra (anger), (2) adbhuta (wonder), (3) srngära (conjugal love), (4) häsya (comedy), (5) vira (chivalry), (6) dayä (mercy), (7) däsya (servitorship), (8) sakhya (fraternity), (9) bhayänaka (horror), (10) bibhatsa (shock), (11) sänta (neutrality), (12) vätsalya (parenthood). The sum total of all these rasas is called affection or love.



Kṛṣṇa Kṛpā Srī Mūrti

The Embodiment of Kṛṣṇa's Mercy

 in glorification of Śrīla A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda 
by Śrīla Gour Govinda Swami  on Śrīla Prabhupāda's disappearance day
6th November, 1994, Bhubaneswar, India.

We should understand a Vaiṣṇava never dies. A Vaiṣṇava has no birth and no death like an ordinary jīva. He is no ordinary jīva, he is beyond birth and death. As the Supreme Lord appears and disappears, similarly His dear devotee, Vaiṣṇava Thākura, appears and disappears.

na karma-bandhuna janma vaiṣṇavānāṁ ca vidyate
viṣṇur anucaratva hi mokam āhur manīṣia

“A Vaiṣṇava does not take birth under the jurisdiction of karmic law. His birth and disappearance are transcendental. The wise have declared that the servants of Viṣṇu are eternally engaged in the liberated service of the Lord and hence are free from the laws of material nature.” (Hari-bhakti-vilāsa, 10.113)


" serving the Absolute is the eternal function of the soul, and the only virtue."  SBSST


"Look at the beauty of Vrindavana forest!
Touching each other with moving hands of splendid twigs and buds, gazing at each other with anjana-anointed eyes of flowers embraced by black bees, and the glory of their crowns moving to and fro, the trees and vines sweetly talk with maddened cuckoos' words like a treasury of honey."



Krishna will deliver. 

We are HERE in Maya, because we wished to be here.  

It is our choice to serve Krishna, or serve ourselves. 

Best to know that serving Krishna IS serving oneself !

The Devotees’ Only Cherishable Hope

All the scriptures loudly sing that the form of divinity, the personality of Godhead, is the actual object of worship. Other than Him, no one can be worthy of the word ārādhya (the object of loving adoration). Due to being covered by ignorance for the time being, we have given up our loving quest to find Him and have cheated ourselves out of attaining love for Him. The very moment that we became covered by ignorance, anarthas* emerged, which led us to mistakenly perceive Him, the Supreme Lord, as some other entity. Our ultimate goal is to attain artha (meaningfulness), the antithesis of which lays in anarthas. If we do not take up a service attitude and pursue those goals, or perfections, available to us, which are most meaningful to us and dear to our hearts, and if we do not gain an understanding of the principles of service, then, swayed by our own arrogance and ego, we shall end up serving something other than He who is truly meant to be served.  - SBSST


The gist of the advice given in Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu by Srila Rupa Gosvami is as follows: “We are to associate with those superior to us but in the same line of Krsna consciousness. They carry the same conception of the spiritual Truth, but they are superior to me. If I engage myself even as a sweeper in that camp, it will be highly valuable for my future spiritual life.”  Srila Sridhara Goswami





"Sri Sri RadhaVallabha Ki Jaya ! Srimati RadhaRani Ki Jaya.

he krsna karuna-sindho
dina-bandho jagat-pate
gopesa gopika-kanta
radha-kanta namo ‘stu te

O my dear Krsna, You are the friend of the distressed and the source of creation. You are the master of the gopis and the lover of Radharani. I offer my respectful obeisances unto You.

radhe vrndavanesvari
vrsabhanu-sute devi
pranamami hari-priye

I offer my respects to Radharani, whose bodily complexion is like molten gold and who is the Queen of Vrndavana. You are the daughter of King Vrsabhanu, and You are very dear to Lord Krsna."


Bhaktivinoda Thakura: Sri Krishna-samhita:

"The provisional character of scriptural texts is evident, but the authors of the scriptures do not explicitly indicate this because those qualified to discard the scriptural bindings naturally become independent of scripture with the help of the hidden indications of the scriptural authors and also by their own purified knowledge.

Such persons carry on sinless activities with the help of their own intellect as well as by the advice of the scriptures. In that stage the scriptures do not have any binding power over them, but only serve as their guides.

On the other hand, those who are unable to understand their own spiritual path for want of self-evident knowledge may not be able to ascertain their duties and so may fall into misery due to sensuality; for such people the scriptural rules are imperative.

Such persons should not know that there is any way for them apart from the bindings of the scriptures. When they become authorized due to their advancement, they will be able to know this secret by the suggestions of the scriptures.



Srila Prabhupada; "As it is said that one who drinks the water of the Ganges, he also gets salvation, then what to speak of Bhagavad-gita? Bhagavad-gita is the nectar in the whole Mahabharata, and is spoken by Visnu. Lord Krsna is the original Visnu. Visnu-vaktrad vinihsrtam. It is coming out of the mouth of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. And gangodakam, the Ganges is said to be emanated from the lotus feet of the Lord, and Bhagavad-gita is emanated from the mouth of the Lord. Of course, there is no difference between the mouth and the feet of the Supreme Lord. Still, from neutral position we can study that Bhagavad-gita is even more important than the Ganges water.

sarvopanisado gavo dogdha gopala-nandana partho vatsah su-dhir bhokta dugdham gitamrtam mahat

Just… This Gitopanisad is just like a cow, and the Lord is famous as cow boy, and He was milking this cow. Sarvopanisado. And it is the essence of all Upanisads and represented as the cow. And the Lord being expert cow boy, He is milking the cow. And partho vatsah. And Arjuna is just like the calf. And su-dhir bhokta. And learned scholars and pure devotees, they are to take this milk. Su-dhir bhokta dugdham gitamrtam mahat. The nectar, the milk of Bhagavad-gita, is meant for learned devotees."


"ekam sastram devaki-putra-gitam eko devo devaki-putra ev eko mantras tasya namani yani karmapy ekam tasya devasya seva

Now the world should learn from the Bhagavad-gita, the lesson. Evam sastram devaki-putra-gitam. There is one scripture only, one common scripture for the whole world, for the people of the whole world, and that is this Bhagavad-gita. Devo devaki-putra eva. And there is one God for the whole world, is Sri Krsna. And eko mantras tasya namani. And one hymn, mantra, one hymn only, one prayer, or one hymn, is to chant His name, Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. Eko mantras tasya namani yani karmapy ekam tasya devasya seva. And there is one work only, that is to serve the Supreme Personality of Godhead. If one learns from Bhagavad-gita, then the people are very much anxious to have one religion, one God, one scripture, and one business or one activity of life. This is summarized in the Bhagavad-gita. That one, one God, is Krsna. Krsna is not sectarian God."



verse 11 of Sri Isopanisad explains,

“Only one who can learn the process of nescience and that of transcendental knowledge side by side can transcend the influence of repeated birth and death and enjoy the full blessings of immortality.”




An old Sufi tradition advises to speak only after our words have managed to   pass through four gates. At the first gate, we ask ourselves, "Are these words true?" If so, we let them pass on; if not, back they go. At the second gate we ask; "Are they necessary?" At the third gate we ask; "Are they beneficial?" and at the fourth gate, we ask, "Are they kind?" If the answer to any of these is no, then what you are about to say should be left unsaid.
 Good thing there's no Sufis around here!

" The Great Sinister Movement has come to be within our ISKCON Hare Krishna Movement..." SP paraphrased

In a July 9, 1971 letter to Umapati Das, Srila Prabhupada wrote:
"GBC members are simply to see that things are going on. Other centers have got president, secretary, etc. and they are managing separately. That is the formula. So how is it that the GBC are the final authority? They are simply to examine that things are going on nicely, that is all."

“GBC men should not dictate very much, simply supervise and see that the

standards are maintained.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, February 14th, 1972)

“What will happen when I am not here, shall everything be spoiled by GBC? So for the time being, let the GBC activities be suspended until I thoroughly revise the whole procedure.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, April 11th, 1972)

“I made the GBC to give me relief, but if you do like this, then where is the relief. It is anxiety for me. This is the difficulty, that as soon as one gets power, he becomes whimsical and spoils everything.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, September 12th, 1974 )

“I am training some of my experienced disciples how to manage after my departure. So if instead of taking the training, if in my lifetime you people say I am the Lord of all I survey, that is dangerous conspiracy.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, October 8th, 1974)

“But the difficulty is that our GBC men are falling victim to maya. Today I trust this GBC and tomorrow he will fall down. That is the difficulty. If the GBC men are so flickering then what to speak of the others. Unless this problem is solved whatever we may resolve it will not be very useful. “
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, December 16th, 1974)

“The GBC should all be the instructor (siksa) gurus. I am the initiator (diksa) guru, and you should be the instructor guru by teaching what I am teaching and doing what I am doing. This is not a title, but you must actually come to this platform. This I want.”(Srila Prabhupada Letter, August 4th, 1975)

“The GBC (Governing Body Commission) has been established by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to represent Him in carrying out the responsibility of managing the International Society for Krishna Consciousness of which He is the Founder-Acarya and supreme authority. The GBC accepts as its life and soul His divine instructions and recognizes that it is completely dependent on His mercy in all respects. The GBC has no other function or purpose other than to execute the instructions so kindly given by His Divine Grace and preserve and spread his Teachings to the world in their pure form.”;(GBC Resolution No.1, 1975)

“Now has the GBC become more than Guru Maharaja? As if simply GBC is meant for looking after pounds, shilling, pence. The GBC does not look after spiritual life. That is a defect.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, November 10th, 1975)

"It is now evident that some of our top men are very much ambitious and there has been so many fall-downs.”
(Srila Prabhupada
Letter, January 27th, 1975)

"Our mission is to serve bhakta-visesa and live with devotees. Not that you take the place of the guru. That is nonsense, very dangerous. Then everything will be spoiled. As soon as you become ambitious to take the place of guru—gurusu nara-matih. That is the material disease.”( Srila Prabhupada Conversation, April 20th, 1977)

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura;  

To the Saragrahi Vaishnava, the temple has such thrilling charms which the ordinary Rationalist can never understand. We do not mean to say that Reason is a foolish principle. On the contrary we do not find better admirers of Reason than our humble selves. We hold that man's superiority amongst all created beings consist in man's possessing the noble gift of Reason.




What we maintain in this, that independent of this noble principle there is another higher gift in man which goes by the name of Love. Reason helps Love to maintain its proper bounds in the Spiritual world. Love often tends to degrade itself by exercising its functions on objects other than God and converts itself into lust for woman, wine, meat and gold. Here Reason advises her to rise higher till she reaches her proper sphere above. Thus we find that the object of Reason is to help Love and not to create it. Reason may be properly styled as the servant of Love and must always be subject to her in all her hopes, aspirations and holy works.







The Rationalist on the contrary considers Reason as all in all. This is degradation of humanity. The progressive Rationalist, on the other hand, believes in the principle of love, but attempts to make her the maid-servant of Reason. This is another error. He makes spiritual love sometimes a prisoner in the Jails of Reason. Love wants to soar on her spiritual wings to a realm where the Jailer (Reason) cannot go and the latter is sure to tie up her wings for fear lest she goes to an unworthy place. Love utters sounds of a spiritual character peculiar to herself, but Reason, having no previous experience of it, mistakes it for a disease and administers medicines for her cure. Thus it is that the natural strength of the Queen of our Soul is crippled by artificial administrations of the dry principle of Reason and she rests in us as if a bird taken in a cage.



 O Lord of lords, O master, please grant us pure devotional service at Your lotus feet, life after life. SB 12.13.22





There are abhideyas or processes to achieve our goal of establishing our sambhanda, realtionship, with Krsna, that we  should adopt for the purpose of achieving our objectives. That is the meaning, and there are many 
abhidheyas. They are classified by some authorities into sixty-four categories; by some, into nine categories; and by others, five. Though there are a multitude of courses that we may adopt by means of which we can love the All-love, the Absolute, these methods are classified into sixty-four, nine or five categories. Of the sixty-four categories, five are principal and it is with those five categories that we are to deal. These are:


bhāgavata śravaṇa,
kīrtana, and 
smaraṇa (hearing, chanting and remembering the topics of
aṅghri-sevanam (serving the lotus feet) of Śrī Hari
mathurā-vāsa (residence in Śrī Mathurā-dhāma)
sat-saṅga (association with saints)
śrī harināma saṅkīrtana (congregational chanting of the holy names)

From Sri Brihad-Bhagavatamirta
"The Nectar of the Supreme Personality of Godhead"

of Srila Sanatana Gosvami

Chapter One

1 Glory to He who is a great ocean of many sweetnesses, who is scented with the fragrance of youth, and who, in the form of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, descended (to this world) to give pure love for His own lotus feet and to personally taste the perfect eternal love felt by the gopis.

2 Glory to the gopis headed by Srimati Radharani, who are famous as the beloveds of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and the sweetness of whose intimate relationship with Lord Hari no one will ever have the slightest power to describe.

3 Glory to Lord Hari who, seeing the very sweet love His dear devotees bear for Him, eagerly descended (to this world) in the form of a devotee, who is now splendid as gold, who is dressed as a sannyasi, who is the son of Srimati Saci-devi, and who bears the name Sri Krsna Caitanya.

4 Glory to Goddess Mathura, the best and most beautiful of cities, dear to Lord Krsna, beautified with His birth-pastime, the place where His pastimes are narrated eternally, the place that, because it removes all sins and grants liberation and devotional service, is eternally glorified in this world.

5 Glory, glory to Vrndavana forest, the place dearer to Lord Krsna than the transcendental realm of Vaikuntha, the place where Lord Krsna eternally protects the surabhi cows, and where, sweetly playing the flute, He arouses the pure love of the gopis in the arena of the rasa dance.

6 Glory to the Yamuna River, which is the daughter of the sun-god, the sister of Yamaraja, the friend of Mathura, superior to Ganges, and very dear to Lord Krsna, and which flows with what seems to be water but is actually the nectar of the lotus flower of Lord Krsna's feet.

7 Glory to Govardhana Hill, the king of mountains, the hill the gopis declared was the best servant of Lord Hari, the hill personally worshipped by Lord Krsna when He stopped the Indra-yajna, the hill that for seven days rested on Lord Krsna's lotus hand.

8 Glory, glory to devotional service in pure love for Krsna. Rejected by the devotees, finally understanding the confidential secret of all Vedic knowledge, and abandoning all trust in mantra chanting, Vedic sacrifices, and severe austerity, liberation now worships the feet of devotional service. Liberation now yearns to take shelter of the feet of devotion.

9 All glories, all glories, to the all-blissful holy name of Sri Krsna, which causes the devotee to give up all conventional religious duties, meditation, and worship. When somehow or other uttered even once by a living entity, the holy name awards him liberation. The holy name of Krsna is the highest nectar. It is my very life and my only treasure.*

10 Obeisances to boundlessly merciful Lord Sri Krsnacandra who, appearing as Sri Caitanya, distributed the nectar of pure love of God in the age of Kali.

11 This book is bhakti literatures' essence, which was revealed by the Lord who is dear to the heart.

Note: The Lord who is dear to the heart is Nanda's son, who plays the flute and whose handsome form gracefully bends in three places. By his mercy He appeared in the heart and revealed the truth of devotional service.

Another interpretation is "Caitanyadeve" is "Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu" and "rupa" is "Srila Rupa Gosvami". Then the phrase becomes: "which was revealed by Srila Rupa Gosvami, who is dear to Lord Caitanyadeva."

12 May the saintly devotees hear this confidential book, the Bhagavatamrta (the nectar of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and His devotees), which Jaimini Rsi affectionately spoke to Maharaja Janamejaya.

13 Hearing the wonderful story of Mahabharata from Jaimini, the king of sages, and becoming very eager to hear more, Maharaja Janamejaya, the son of Maharaja Pariksit, asked:

14 Sri Janamejaya said: O brahmana, the sweet nectar I found in your narration of Mahabharata I did not find in Vaisampayana's version. Please now sweetly finish that story.

15-17 Sri Jaimini said: Of Sri Pariksit, who was the best of kings, and who by Sukadeva's instructions had become free of all fears, wise in all spiritual knowledge, and plunged in love for Sri Krsna, and who at that moment was about to ascend to his desired destination (in the spiritual world), his mother, Uttara, who was a great devotee of Lord Krsna, who was flooded with love, and who was first distressed, and then, encouraged by her son, had become cheerful, asked:

19 Sri Jaimini said: Maharaja Pariksit, who was both affectionate to his mother and eager to repeat the very wonderful nectar history of Lord Govinda he had heard, respectfully said:

20 Maharaja Pariksit said: Mother, although at this time I wished to follow a vow of silence, the sweetness of your question makes me eager to speak.

21-3 Bowing down, by my guru Srila Sukadeva Gosvami's mercy, to the infallible Supreme Personality of Godhead, who gave life to both you and your son, by the power of his mercy I will speak the beautiful Bhagavatamrta, the nectar of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and His devotees, which the great devotees extracted with great effort, which is the great conclusion of the assembly of sages, and which is a great secret. Please listen with great attention.

24-5 Once, during the month of Magha, at Prayaga, the best of holy places, many great sages bathed in the morning, happily sat down near the Deity of Lord Madhava and, thinking how to attain spiritual success, praised each other, saying "You are dear to Lord Krsna."

26 O mother, then a great brahmana devotee of the Lord came there to Dasasvamedha-tirtha.

27 A wealthy landowner, he and his associates had come to feed the brahmanas.

28 That great soul performed his morning duties, set aside a large area, and brought many wonderful things.

29 He quickly fashioned a charming courtyard, set up many open tents, and anointed the ground with his own hand.

30 Then he placed Lord Krsna, in His Salagrama-sila form, on a beautiful golden throne. Filled with happiness, and carefully following the proper rituals, he devotedly worshipped the Deity.

31 He offered delicious foods, costly garments and many other valuables to Lord Hari. Then he celebrated a great festival wherein he himself danced to the accompaniment of singing instrumental music.

32 Then he bowed down to offer respects to the brahmanas, who could eloquently speak on the Vedas, Puranas, and other scriptures. He bowed down to the sannyasis, householders, and brahmacaris.

33 Then with sweet words and polite behaviour he pleased the many Vaisnavas, who were always eager to taste the bliss of chanting Lord Krsna's glories.

34 He placed on his head the water that had washed their feet. He worshipped them by giving them the food and valuables that had been offered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

35 Then he respectfully fed the poor and the outcastes, and he satisfied even the dogs, jackals, birds, and insects.

36 When everyone was satisfied in this way the saintly persons requested that he also eat. He and his associates then happily ate the remnants of the nectarean feast.
18 Sri Uttara said: Son, as nectar was taken from the ocean of milk, please extract for me the essence of Sukadeva's teachings.

38-40 Then he put the Lord to rest and was about to go home when Sri Narada, who is always eager to serve the Lord, and who had been observing all his actions from far away, suddenly stood up in the assembly of sages, again and again said, "This person is very dear to Lord Maha-Visnu", quickly went to the brahmana and, proclaiming to the world that this person is the object of Sri Krsna's great mercy, said:

41 Sri Narada said: O king of brahmanas, Lord Krsna is very merciful to you. I have seen how in this sacred place you (have given) your money, property, generosity, and power.

42 The learned brahmana then said to sage Narada: It is not true. My lord, what signs of Lord Krsna's mercy do you see in me?

43 I am insignificant. Who am I? How much can I give in charity? What power do I have? Where is my devotion to the Supreme Personality of Godhead?

44 In the south is a great king in whose country are many temples of the Lord. This king is the real object of Lord Krsna's mercy.

45 Sustained by eating food offered to Lord Krsna, many sannyasis, pilgrims, and others comfortably travel through his country.

46 Near the royal palace is a deity of the Lord. It is as if the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, whose spiritual form is eternal and full of knowledge and bliss, has, out of His great kindness, personally come there, and is deliberately standing still without moving even slightly.

47 In that place is always a newer and newer festival where are every moment many newer and newer valuable presentations are made to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

48 He respectfully feeds all the residents of his kingdom, as well as many visitors from foreign lands, with prasadam offered to Lord Visnu.

49-50 Because they are very eager to see the Deity of the lotus-eyed Supreme Personality of Godhead, because they are filled with happiness by tasting the remnants of food offered to the Deity, and because in this place they may meet many saintly persons, many devotees of Lord Visnu come from foreign lands and permanently reside in his country.

51 The king worships the Supreme Personality of Godhead and the brahmanas, and he has given his country to them as their property. For this reason, in his country there is no calamity, no suffering, and no fear.

52 In his country the ground produces crops even without being plowed. The rain falls as much as one could desire, and excellent fruit, roots, and garments are very easy to obtain.

53 Righteously engaged in their various occupational duties, and completely devoted to Lord Krsna, all the people of his country are very happy. They all follow their king as if they were his sons and daughters.

54 Prideless, and always humbly engaged in the service of the Lord, he pleases everyone. He is very dear to the infallible Supreme Personality of Godhead.

55-6 In the presence of the Deity regularly chanting the Lord's holy names with his brothers, wives, children, grandchildren, servants, government ministers, priests, and other associates, and in that sankirtana personally dancing, singing transcendental songs, and playing musical instruments, he always brings great happiness to the Lord.
37 Then he approached Lord Krsna, and with folded hands offered the fruits of all his actions to the Lord.

57 A host of good qualities follow his great devotion to Lord Krsna. How many of them can I enumerate? Of how many of them am I aware?

58 Sri Pariksit said: Then Narada went to see that great king. As he was travelling in that king's country he noticed that the people were intently and happily engaged in the worship of the Supreme Lord.

59 Happily playing his vina, Narada entered the palace and could see the king there. Impelled by the brahmana's words, Narada approached him and said:

60 Sri Narada said: You have great royal power, saintly subjects, a host of good qualities, piety, wealth, learning and devotion to the Lord. You are certainly the object of Lord Krsna's mercy.

61 Sri Pariksit said: Narada Muni, the best of Vaisnavas, played his vina and glorified the king's good qualities in song. Narada embraced the king again and again.

62 His head bowed down with embarrassment to hear so much praise of himself, the humble king worshipped the great sage Narada and then spoke the following words:

63-4 Devarsi Narada, my life is short. My power is very circumscribed, I have very little to give in charity. I am not independent. I am governed by fear. I remain under the dominion of the three-fold miseries. Why, without considering all these points, do you consider me, who am so unqualified, to be the object of Lord Krsna's mercy?

65 The demigods have effulgent and very powerful bodies. They are always worshipped by human beings. They are the actual object of Lord Visnu's mercy.

66 The demigods are sinless. They are situated in the mode of goodness. They never suffer. They are always happy. They are completely independent. They have the power to fulfill all the desires of their devotees.

67 Whenever they wish they can drink nectar that satisfies all their hunger and thirst and frees them from old-age, disease, death and all distress.

68 My lord, by the power of their great good fortune these demigods reside in Svargaloka. The human beings who reside in Bharata-varsa may enter that Svarga realm only by performing many pious deeds.

69 The most important of these demigods is Maharaja Indra. He has the power to reward or punish. It is he who nourishes the world with rain.

70 For 71 yugas he is the master of the three planetary systems. If a human king performs 100 asvamedha-yajnas he will not obtain such a post.

71 His horse is Uccahisrava, his great elephant Airavata, his cow Kamadhuk, and his garden the Nandana.

72 In the Nandana garden are parijatas and many other flowers that fulfill all desires, and there are also many kalpa-druma trees and kalpa-lata vines that also fulfill all desires.

73 A single flower from that garden fulfils all desires. Indra's abode is filled with very wonderful singing, dancing, instrumental music, colourful garments, delicious food, and a host of other opulences and pleasures.

74 Ah! What more can I say about his good fortune? The Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Visnu became his younger brother Vamana.

75 Lord Vamana brings Indra great happiness. Lord Vamana protects Indra from all calamities. Lord Vamana personally accepts the opulent worship Indra offers. You know all this. What more need I say?


My advice to you under the circumstances is that at least for one hour you must all go to have sankirtana outside on the streets or in the park. That is your life and soul, first business. The next business is completing the chanting of 16 rounds every day. The next business is your editing. And if you find extra time then you can attend the temple ceremonies. Otherwise you can stop these activities. But outdoor kirtana, your editing work, and chanting of 16 rounds must be done. Outdoor kirtana must be done, even at the cost of suspending all editorial work. That is your first and foremost business. Temple worship is not so important. If need be, the whole temple can be locked. But the outdoor kirtana cannot be stopped.
 (Letter to Rayarama, 17 May 1969)

The cycle of four ages -- Satya, Treta, Dvapara and Kali -- continues perpetually among living beings on this earth, repeating the same general sequence of events.

My dear King Pariksit, all these kings I have described, as well as all other human beings, come to this earth and stake their claims, but ultimately they all must give up this world and meet their destruction.

Even though a person's body may now have the designation "king," in the end its name will be "worms," "stool" or "ashes." What can a person who injures other living beings for the sake of his body know about his own self-interest, since his activities are simply leading him to hell?

[The materialistic king thinks:] "This unbounded earth was held by my predecessors and is now under my sovereignty. How can I arrange for it to remain in the hands of my sons, grandsons and other descendants?"

Although the foolish accept the body made of earth, water and fire as "me" and this earth as "mine," in every case they have ultimately abandoned both their body and the earth and passed away into oblivion.

My dear King Pariksit, all these kings who tried to enjoy the earth by their strength were reduced by the force of time to nothing more than historical accounts."

Prabhupada: Who thinks we are Krsna? We do not think. We do not think like that.

Devotee: Belong to Krsna.

Devotee (2): We are Krsna's.

Prabhupada: We are servants of Krsna. We are Krsna's. Just like you are son of your father, similarly, we are servants of Krsna. We are not Krsna. Who says that we are Krsna? We do not say. We are servants of Krsna.

Indian: (indistinct)

Prabhupada: [break] ... and chant Hare Krsna. Where is the difficulty? This is the short cut. This is the shortest cut.

'"So, my dear boys and girls, about six years ago I came to your country single-handed, with this pair of cymbals. Now you are so many chanting Hare Krishna. That is my success. It was the prediction of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu: prthivite ache yata nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara hoibe mora noma. Lord Caitanya desired that 'In all the towns—in as many towns and villages as there are on the surface of the globe—My name will be broadcast.' He is Krishna Himself—svayam krsna, krsna caitanya-namine — simply changing His name as Krishna Caitanya. So His prediction will never go in vain. That's a fact. So my plan was that T shall go to America... If I can convince the younger generation of America, they will take it up.' If you kindly take this Krishna consciousness movement seriously, your country will be saved, and the whole world will be saved." - (Lecture, May 18,1972, Los Angeles)

Thank you very much!

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati; 422.How does a genuine disciple think?(p.338)

For the genuine devotee of a spiritual master, the genuine disciple, the spiritual master is his entire life, his ideal. His vow is to serve the spiritual master, and though he adores both Krishna and the spiritual master equally, he gives special preference to his spiritual master.

Letter to Lalita Priya devi

"We should follow in the footsteps of Lord Caitanya and the six Goswamis of Vrndavana.
They were always serving Krishna in the mood of separation. They never said that "now I have seen Krishna" or "last night I danced with Krishna" - no. They were crying where is Krishna, and they were always searching after Him, wondering when they would finally be able to see Him.
We should also desire intensely to see and be with Krishna, but first thing is to become purified through devotional service.
It is not possible otherwise. So, keep on helping me to spread this Krishna Consciousness movement, following the rules and regulations very carefully,
 and your life will be perfected and you will see Krishna."

"Pamho Tamohara Prabhu, agtACBSP!

Thank you for keeping me engaged in this wonderful krsna katha which is our best medicine to overcome the material disease. This (above) is a proper article prabhu, because HDG Gour Govinda Maharajah used to say that this mood of separation is the last limit of bhakti, called bhakti naipunya.

HE say: but when there is separation it is very acute,very painful burning like poison. two opposites are there poison is there and nectar is there.....outside burning but inside immense pleasure..... like the karmi they are feeling separation from material enjoyment therefore the blazing fire is finished them to ash. But the fire of Krsna consciuosness burn everything including the desire for enjoyment, one cannot understand how krsna is eternally brahamacari. HE has more then sixteen thousand wives in Dvaraka and produced so many sons. HE is a great grhastha,is HE a brahmacari ? SRILA GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJ used to say this as the most deep point of our kc philosophy.

We have not love for SRI KRSNA yet because if we had that we were already all dead, like maharaj ugrasena, HE fell flat to the ground dead when HE heard that SRI KRSNA left the planet. Like all the members of the yadu dynasty, they could not live without the separation of SRI YADUNANDANAji.

All the brahma gaudiya vaisnava sampradaya acharyas done the spiritual revolution by saving a lot of fallen souls by this mood of separation from SRI KRSNA in vani seva, because all the vapu forms that we are using at the moment are all temporary, but the vani seva is eternal. In this immense pleasure coming from vipralambha rasambhode service in separation from our lost spiritual bodies, thank you for your sat-sanga" agtys ys

"So we should associate by vibration, and not by the physical presence. That is real association.". Srila Prabhupada lecture, Srimad Bhagavatam, August 18, 1968

Real association means hearing the teachings of the spiritual master, not physically associating with him. Srila Prabhupada speaks about some of his god brothers, who had extensive physical association with Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, but have become USELESS due to their NOT following the orders of their spiritual master:

"So far as personal association with Guru is concerned, I was only with Guru Maharaj 4 or 5 times, but I have never left his association, not even for a moment. Because I am following his instruction, I have never felt any separation. There are some of my God brothers here in India, who had constant personal association with Guru Maharaja, but who are neglecting his orders. This is just like the bug who is sitting on the lap of the king. He may be very puffed up by his position but all he can succeed in doing is biting the king. Personal association is not so important as association through serving."

"I went to your country for spreading this information of Krishna Consciousness and you are helping me in my mission, although I am not physically present there but spiritually I am always with you." - Srila Prabhupada letter to Nandarani, Krishna Devi and Subala, October 3, 1967

The real blessings of Srila Prabhupada can be obtained by hearing his teachings, reading his books, hearing his audio lectures, and so on. There were many people who may have had Srila Prabhupada’s physical association, but the real connection with Srila Prabhupada comes when one hears his teachings by reading his books hearing his audio lectures. To judge one’s relationship with Srila Prabhupada on the basis of how much or how little physical association they may have had with him is a material conception. A spiritual conception of the relationship with Srila Prabhupada is judged by how deeply one has imbibed his teachings within one’s heart. - Kanhaiya prabhu. 2012.

"I am always with you. Never mind if I am physically absent."
 - Srila Prabhupada letter to Jayananda, September 16, 1969

"So far as your question about controversy amongst the disciples . . . that is a fact. But this controversy is not material. Just like in a national program, different political parties are sometimes in conflict and make propaganda against each other, but their central point is always service to the country. Similarly, amongst the disciples . . . there may be some controversy, but the central point is how to preach the mission of His Divine Grace. If the central point is fixed up then there is no harm in such controversy. Every individual being must have his opinion; that is the significance of individuality, but all such differences of opinions must coincide in Krishna. In the battlefield of Kuruksetra were Arjuna and Bhisma who were fighting with one another, and because Krishna was on the side of Arjuna, sometimes Bhisma pierced the body of Krishna also with arrows. But still they remained the greatest devotees of the Lord.'"

(Srila Prabhupada's Letter to Mandali Bhadra, July 28, 1969)

From now on unless I order you do something change or in addition, go on with the usual standard way..."
Srila Prabhupada

You are not expected to do it all or understand much at first. In the long run, we hope you will in fact renounce all personal claims to the world and surrender your life word deeds and everything you possess in His service, as according to your heart's understanding of Srila Prabhupada's directions to you. That is pure devotional service, so the standards are the world's highest in that sense. But there is otherwise no material qualifications for developing love of Godhead! Any and all have this right and inherent capacity. We the disciples have done so, have committed to the group of devotees eternally serving Godhead under the directions of Srila Prabhupada. So it is not a cheap internet site thing. But as you take, it is up to you, take more or less, we are giving it freely. Srila Prabhupada uses the example of an electric current; the current is there, but the electric light bulbs use according to their capacity. - your servant tdv

From Srila Prabhupada’s June 22, 1972 letter to Hamsaduta
“So especially you must encourage the students to read our books throughout the day as much as possible, and give them all good advice how to understand the books, and inspire them to study the things from every point of view. In this way, by constantly engaging our tongues in the service of the Lord, either by discussing His philosophy or by chanting Hare Krishna, the truth is that Krishna Himself will reveal Himself to us and we shall understand how to do everything properly.

Now we have got so many students and so many temples but I am fearful that if we expand too much in this way that we shall become weakened and gradually the whole thing will become lost. Just like milk. We may thin it more and more with water for cheating the customer, but in the end it will cease to be any longer milk.
Better to boil the milk now very vigorously and make it thick and sweet, that is the best process. So let us concentrate on training our devotees very thoroughly in the knowledge of Krishna Consciousness from our books, from tapes, by discussing always, and in so many ways instruct them in the right propositions.”

"Lord Ṛṣabhadeva told His sons: My dear boys, of all the living entities who have accepted material bodies in this world, one who has been awarded this human form should not work hard day and night simply for sense gratification, which is available even for dogs and hogs that eat stool. One should engage in penance and austerity to attain the divine position of devotional service. By such activity, one’s heart is purified, and when one attains this position, he attains eternal, blissful life, which is transcendental to material happiness and which continues forever."

"Bala Krsna !, Bhaja Krsna !, Lala Krsna Nama !
Krsna Mata, Krsna Pita, Krsna dharma prana."
These are the first words used in Harinam sankirtana of Mahaprabhu, by Lord Nityananada and Srila Haridasa Thakura, whom were sent door to door in Navadvipa.

Who is Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī?
Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī is an eternal associate of Bhagavān. He is the spiritual master of the whole world (jagad-guru) and the emperor among the devotees. In śrī kṛṣṇa-līlā, he is the maidservant of Śrīmatī Rādhikā named Śrī Rūpa Mañjarī. Śrī Rūpa Prabhu is an intimate associate of Śrī Gaurāṅga.
 His existence does not stem from jīva-tattva (the existential principle of the atomic living soul), but from svarūpa-śakti-tattva (the existential principle of the supreme, internal potency of reality), which is the master of jīva-tattva. He is the beloved associate of Śrī Rādhā, the daughter of Vṛṣabhānu Mahārāja.

Srila Prabhupada Lecture
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.3.15
“Advancement means… But we don’t change our Vedic knowledge. We do not say, “Now, Kṛṣṇa, five thousand years ago, said like this. Now we are advanced. We change this line.” Of course, others are doing. In the scriptures… Just like the Christians, they are changing the words. But you cannot do that. Then where is the authority? If you change the word of the scripture, then where is the authority of the scripture? Just like in lawbooks, there is some law made already. Whimsically you cannot, I mean to say, erase the words and put something that “It should be changed like this.” That will not be accepted. Law, if there is change… Actually, there is no change. There cannot be change. Real law means there is no change. Just like day and night, it is coming. The fortnight, the dark period and the light period, it is coming for millions and millions and time immemorial. The same law is going, going on. You cannot change. So as soon as you change, that means it is imperfect. You change.
So Vedic laws are not like that. You cannot change. Five thousand years ago Kṛṣṇa said, sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja: [Bg. 18.66] “You give up all other religious principles. Simply surrender unto Me.” We are preaching the same thing. No change. No change. There is no possibility of change. Then how Kṛṣṇa is authority? So change means imperfect knowledge."

I am so inspired by your effort there. I will definitely go there for the nectar.

RRdasa's comment; "This site is supremely great. Krsna`s blessings is with this site. Haribol."

"AGTSP. One day Prabhu and I were talking about Krsna consciousness networks on the internet, so he said that he saw a network with lots of people and over a hundred groups, but very little action, but your network has just just a few groups but very inspiring and the blogs are packed with knowledge and spiritual food for thought. So I told him that I heard about it sometime ago but did not check it out. So I had a look recently and I was amazed at what I saw. I agree with him. This site has everything. It is marvellous. Thank You Tamoharadasa Prabhu. Srila Prabhupada and Krsna will be very pleased with you. Take care. Hare Krsna."

(7): No, but do we offer the prayer first to Śiva...?
Prabhupāda: That you do. There is no harm. Lord Śiva is also called Mahādeva. Amongst the demigods, he is the chief. So if you worship Lord Śiva... We also worship Śiva. It is not that we disrespect Śiva. We offer our utmost respect to Lord Śiva. But that does not mean that he is the Supreme Lord.
There is no harm. There is no harm. But you should understand what is Śiva and what is Viṣṇu. If you offer first prayer to Lord Śiva, there is no harm. It is good. He is... Vaiṣṇavānāṁ yathā śambhuḥ. He is our spiritual master. He is Vaiṣṇava. Why not offer first respect to him? But if you take Lord Śiva as the Supreme, that is insult.

Srila Prabhupada is describing that when the Kazi tried to stop the Sankirtan Movement, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu organized a protest march on the Kazi, rallying hundreds of thousands of people to come and put pressure on the Kazi because he was doing the wrong thing by mistreating the Vaisnavas who were on sankirtan. Srila Prabhupada says:

"This incident shows clearly that the Lord was not a so-called timid Vaisnava. A Vaisnava is a fearless devotee of the Lord, and for the right cause he can take any step suitable for the purpose. Arjuna was also a Vaisnava devotee of Lord Krsna, and he fought valiantly for the satisfaction of the Lord. Similarly, Vajrangaji, or Hanuman, was also a devotee of Lord Rama, and he gave lessons to the nondevotee party of Ravana. The principles of Vaisnavism are to satisfy the Lord by all means. A Vaisnava is by nature a nonviolent, peaceful living being, and he has all the good qualities of God, but when the nondevotee blasphemes the Lord or His devotee, the Vaisnava never tolerates such impudency."

In his purport to Caitanya-caritamrta Adi 17.141, Srila Prabhupada further states:

"In the present day also, people all over the world may join together in the Krsna consciousness movement and protest against the present degraded governments of the world's godless societies, which are based on all kinds of sinful activities. Srimad-Bhagavatam states that in the Age of Kali, thieves, rogues and fourth-class people who have neither education nor culture capture the seats of governments to exploit the citizens. This is a symptom of Kali-yuga that has already appeared. People cannot feel secure about their lives and property, yet the so-called governments continue, and government ministers get fat salaries, although they are unable to do anything good for society. The only remedy for such conditions is to enhance the sankirtana movement under the banner of Krsna consciousness and protest against the sinful activities of all the world's governments.

The Krsna consciousness movement is not a sentimental religious movement; it is a movement for the reformation of all the anomalies of human society. If people take to it seriously, discharging this duty scientifically, as ordered by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the world will see peace and prosperity instead of being confused and hopeless under useless governments. There are always rogues and thieves in human society, and as soon as a weak government is unable to execute its duties, these rogues and thieves come out to do their business. Thus the entire society becomes a hell unfit for gentlemen to live in. There is an immediate need for a good government -- a government by the people, with Krsna consciousness. Unless the masses of people become Krsna conscious, they cannot be good men. The Krsna consciousness movement that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu started by chanting the Hare Krsna maha-mantra still has its potency. Therefore people should understand it seriously and scientifically and spread it all over the world."

SP said, letter to Hansadutta; "Regarding the poisonous effect in our Society, it is a fact and I know where from this poison tree has sprung up and how it affected practically the whole Society in a very dangerous form. But it does not matter. Prahlada Maharaja was administered poison, but it did not act. Similarly Lord Krsna and the Pandavas were administered poison and it did not act. I think in the same parampara system that the poison administered to our Society will not act if some of our students are as good as Prahlada Maharaja..."

"Our only strength is chanting Hare Krishna Maha-mantra. So if we stick to the principle of chanting Hare Krishna Mantra, following the rules and regulations, that will give us strength to work on both sides - namely to enlighten people in Krishna Consciousness and cut down the bad government full of atheistic people." Letter to Madhudvisa Maharaja 15 September, 1971

verse 11 of Sri Isopanisad explains;

“Only one who can learn the process of nescience and that of transcendental knowledge side by side can transcend the influence of repeated birth and death and enjoy the full blessings of immortality.”

"From now on unless I order you do something change or in addition, go on with the usual standard way."


His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada once remarked to his disciples, "You must become a general like me. I cannot be defeated."


Śrīla Prabhupāda Says - [On leadership in his ISKCON society]

"...after you, who will take the leadership?" And "Everyone will take, all my disciples. If you want, you can take also. (laughter) But if you follow. They are prepared to sacrifice everything, so they'll take the leadership. I may, one, go away, but there will be hundreds, and they'll preach. If you want, you can also become a leader. We have no such thing, that 'Here is leader.' Anyone who follows the previous leadership, he's a leader. 'Indian,' we have no such distinction, 'Indian,' 'European.' "

Brahmānanda: They wanted an Indian to be the leader?

Prabhupāda: Yes. (laughs) "Everyone, all my disciples, they are leaders. As purely as they follow, they become leader. If you want to follow, you can become a leader. You are Indian. But you don't want." I told them that.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes, they probably wanted to propose somebody who would take over our movement.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Leaders. All nonsense. Leader means one who has become first-class disciple. He is leader. Evaṁ paramparā-prāpta... One who is perfectly following... Our instruction is ara na kariha mane asa **. You know this? What is that? Guru-mukha-padma-vākya, cittete kariyā aikya, ara na kariha mane asa **.

Who is leader? A leader, to become leader, is not very difficult, provided one is prepared to follow the instructions of a bona fide guru.

[Room Conversation: Vṛndāvan 2 Nov 1977]


 NOTE ; Srila Prabhupada had no written authorization to be guru, but was sent by his spiritual master alone to the West with a few books, to preach, and instruction to preach in English. General authorization implied. Srila Prabhupada told us his spiritual master ordered him, just as did Gour Govinda Swami.

Roupa Manjari Devi Dasi courtesy;

"In our society everyone, either a brahmacari or sannyasi or grhastha, who has dedicated his life and soul for this movement, they are all on the same level of sannyasi. For the present moment, nobody can claim an extra honor from his Godbrothers. Everyone should treat his Godbrothers as Prabhu. But nobody should try to claim any extra honor on account of an official position."

Roupa Manjari Devi Dasi @ Yuga Avatar Das :

"GBC members are simply to see that things are going on. Other centers have got president, secretary, etc. and they are managing separately. That is the formula. So how is it that the GBC are the final authority? They are simply to examine that things are going on nicely, that is all."

“The most important factor in this Age of Kali, which is an ocean of faults, is that one can be free from all contamination and become eligible to enter the kingdom of God simply by chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra. The self-realization that was achieved in the Satya millennium by meditation, in the Tretā millennium by the performance of different sacrifices, and in the Dvāpara millennium by worship of Lord Kṛṣṇa can be achieved in the Age of Kali simply by chanting the holy names, Hare Kṛṣṇa.”


Indian man: When did you become spiritual the leader of Krishna Consciousness?

Srila Prabhupada: What is that?

Brahmananda: He is asking when did you become the spiritual leader of Krishna Consciousness?

Srila Prabhupada: When my Guru Maharaja ordered me. This is the guru parampara.

Indian man: Did it…

Srila Prabhupada: Try to understand. don’t go very speedily. A guru can become guru when he is ordered by his guru. That’s all. Otherwise nobody can become guru.

(Srila Prabhupada Bg. Lecture, 28/10/75)


“I am very poor and fallen, a disgrace to the name of a devotee and not at all qualified for serving the Lord. But if you are merciful upon me, I can become all-knowing.”

“yasmin vijñāte sarvam evam vijñātam bhavati” (Mundaka Upanisad 1.3)

“By knowing Him, everything becomes known.”

caraṇe sadā vāsa diyo, jo bhakatira sadma
bhakti habe kṛṣṇe mora, supuṣpita padma

“Please give me a place of residence always at your lotus feet, which are the abode of pure devotional service. I know that only then I will develop devotion towards Krsna, just like a beautifully bloomed lotus flower.”

āmi śuniluń prabhupāda, tava hate kṛṣṇa
śuniluń koṭi-koṭi-janme, na habe kṛṣṇe tṛṣṇa

“Prabhupad, I have heard that Krsna is in your hands. I have also heard that even after many crores and crores of births, one does not attain the greed to have Krsna.”

e mora prārthanā prabhu, diyo tat tṛṣṇa
goloka gamanīye jata, e pāpī pābo kṛṣṇa

“This is my prayer O master, please give me that greed to have Krsna. That greed, I know, will help me go towards Goloka, and thus even this sinful person will attain Krsna’s shelter.”

"All my disciples will take the legacy. If you want, you can also take it. Sacrifice everything. I, one, may soon pass away. But they are hundreds, and this movement will increase. It is not that I give an order, 'Here is the next leader.' Anyone who follows the previous leadership is the leader.... All of my disciples are leaders, as much as they follow purely. If you want to follow, you can also lead. But you don't want to follow. Leader means one who is a first class disciple. Evam param parapraptam. One who is following is perfect."
(Srila Prabhupada, Back to Godhead magazine, Vol. 13, No. 1-2)



There is no one who can compare to our Srila Prabhupada, except our Grandfather Gurudeva, HDG 108 Sri Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami Maharajah Srila Prabhupada.
SBSS; "The only way to attain bhagavad-bhakti is by associating with those devotees who are engaged in serving the Supreme Lord. The devotees have accepted that rendering service to Śrī Bhagavān is the essence of life, and that this is conclusive. They always engage in discussing the name, form, qualities and pastimes (nāmarūpa,  guṇa and līlā) of the Lord and consider this the sole substance of their very lives. Only by associating with devotees who perform service to the Lord simply to please Him can one attain spiritual welfare."


We jivas are really poor, no doubt. We are poor jivas but we are not poor Narayanas. (To identify Narayana Who is the permanent Possessor of all wealth, with a poor jiva, is an absurdity.) Our poverty should be diminished. And to that end, wealth should be accumulated. Wealth of what kind? It is wealth of Krishna-prema, i.e. causeless love for the Absolute Truth-Krishna. And for this, we should pray to Him in the same way as a Vaishnava mahajana prays, in the following lines:

prema dhana vina vyartha daridra-jivana
dasa kari vetan more deha prema dhana

Life without Love is useless and poor they say,
Appoint me in Thy service, Oh Lord with Love as my pay.




We have perfect, eternal, perfect loving relationship with Krsna. One who is budhä, pandit, learned, he understands this thing and does his bhajan in that mood, loving mood. Do you understand? He does his bhajan, serves Krishna in loving mood, offers loving service, prema-mayé-sevä. Not mere service, loving service. And we have loving relationship, eternal, perfect loving relationship with Krishna. And we should establish ourselves in that relationship. Then there will be no trouble at all, no suffering at all. All happy, all joyful, all blissful. You’ll see and find.

—Recollections of Gour Govinda Mahārāja by Guṇārṇava dāsa


It was one year to the day, after leaving family life and travelling the length and breadth of India in search of a bona fide guru to take shelter of, that in 1975, on the occasion of Rāma-navami, during the opening of the Śrī Śrī Kṛṣṇa Balarāma temple in Vṛndāvana, that Śrīla Prabhupāda awarded Gour Govinda Swami sannyāsa, thereby fulfilling the desire he had cherished his whole life, to take sannyāsa and preach the mission of Śrīman Caitanya Mahāprabhu all over the world.

When Śrīla Prabhupāda gave sannyāsa to Gour Govinda Swami he said to him, “You have understood.” Srila Prabhupāda at different times said of his disciple Gour Govinda Swami, “…Kṛṣṇa has sent him…”, “…Gour Govinda Swami is a devotee from birth…”, and that, “…O, Gour Govinda Swami, he is so sincere…”

Vṛndāvana 1975 (by Swami BV Bhāgavata (Bhāgavata dāsa) : After Gour Govinda Swami took sannyāsa, many sannyāsīs and Governing Body Commissioners started complaining, “How has he taken sannyāsa? He’s a new man!” then Prabhupāda told them,

He is a devotee from his birth, you are new men!”

The prominent astrologer from Orissa, Tīrthananda Dasa said of His Divine Grace:

He is from the eternal abode of the Lord, Vaikuntha-loka”

The brāhmaṇa from Śrī Raṅgam Badri Nārāyaṇa dāsa said of His Divine Grace:

I could see immediately that he was a maha-bhagavata.”

The Ācārya of Śrī Raṅgam, Śrī Lakṣman Rāmānuj Jeeyer, Śrīla Ācāryadeva, of the Śrī-sampradāya said of His Divine Grace:

He is a maha-bhagavata,”

and paid him full daṇḍavats. Also on another occasion, referring to Śrīla Gour Govinda Swami, he said,

…he is a saktyavesa-avatara, a spiritually effulgent personality…”

The Vision We Should Develop When Guru Leaves

 Darshana, France 18 July 1986

Devotee: What happens when. . . .

Gour Govinda Swami: His instructions are there, vapu rūpavāṇī rūpaGuru means pure devotee, Vaiṣṇava. Guru means very, very intimate associate of Lord Krishna. He isguru, spiritual master. When he is physically present, that is his presence is here, but inaprakata līlā when he disappears, at that time one should not think that guru is not there. He is always there. Krishna is always there. If you have eye you can see Krishna,

santaḥ sadaiva hṛdayeṣu vilokayanti
yaṁ śyāmasundaram acintya-guṇa-svarūpaṁ
govindam ādi-puruṣaṁ tam ahaṁ bhajāmi

I have already spoken. If you have that bhakti-cakṣu, eye of devotion, and you have developed kṛṣṇa-prema, then you can see Krishna everywhere, yāṅhā yāṅhā netra pade tāṅhā kṛṣṇa sphure.  You look and see Krishna. How could Prahlad Maharaja see Krishna in a stone pillar whereas his father couldn’t?

tasyāhaṁ na praṇaśyāmi
sa ca me na praṇayśati

Bhagavad-gītā. 6.30

 Krishna says. “He always sees Me. I always see him. Spiritual master is always there. Don’t think that he is not physically present, that he is not there. He is there. He is always there. If you have developed love for the spiritual master, if you have developed that eye, you can see him, you can talk to him and he is also present in this form (banging the book), vāṇī–rūpa, his instructions are there. Don’t think so, when he is away.

Krishna Speaks Through Śāstra

Another thing is there: Krishna is always there, Krishna is always speaking, Krishna is always teaching. But how is He there, how is He speaking, and how is He teaching? One may put this question forward.

‘śāstra-guru-ātma’-rūpe āpanāre jānāna
‘kṛṣṇa mora prabhu, trātā’——jīvera haya jñāna

Cc. madhya 20.123

How does Krishna speak? ‘Śāstra-guru-ātma’, He speaks through śāstra, Veda, Vedic scripture, because the Vedas come from Krishna. He is the source of Veda. What He says in Veda is very difficult to understand. Especially it should be understood throughtattva–vicāra, not aparā-vicāra, apparent consideration. It is absolute consideration. Māyāvādīs do apparent consideration, quoting śāstra as Vedic truth.

Paramātmā Assumes the Body of Guru

Then comes the question of guruGuru comes, the spiritual master comes who is the representative of Krishna, very dear devotee of Krishna, who is as caitya-guru, who is seated in the heart of his body as Supersoul. He is known as caitya-guru. He comes.

nāyam ātmā pravacanena labhyo
na medhayā na bahudhā śrutena
yam evaiṣa vṛṇute tena labhyas
tasyaiṣa ātmā vivṛṇute tanuṁ svām

(Katha Upaniṣad 1.2.23)

You cannot know that paramātmā-tattvaīśa-tattva, through your own mundane scholarship, own mundane intelligence, medhayā, or listening to many pravacanas ofkarmisjñānīs and yogis. Those who never come under a bona fide disciplic succession are not devotees. You cannot know it. Katha Upaniṣad says, nāyam ātmā pravacanena labhyo na medhayā na bahudhā śrutena. Then how can you know? Yam evaiṣa vṛṇute tena labhyas tasyaiṣa ātmā vivṛṇute tanuṁ svām,  ātmāhere means Paramātmā, Supersoul, who is seated in everyone’s heart. Assuming a body He comes as spiritual master, Himself, because He is caitya-guru, to teachparamātmā-tattva. Unless He says you cannot understand. Where does he appear? Who meets him? That’s another question.

Ātmā here means Paramātmā, Supersoul. So Krishna teaches like that. The soul or individual person who is very, very inquisitive to know all these things, who is very eager to know, Paramātmā knows this, “Oh, now he is very eager to know Me so I must help him.” So he comes assuming the body of guru.

brahmāṇda bhramite kona bhāgyavān jīva
guru-kṛṣṇa-prasāde pāya bhakti-latā-bīja

(Cc. Madhya 19.151)

He is most fortunate, bhāgyavān. By wandering through so many planetary systems, undergoing so many species of life, one who is fortunate enough meets a bona fide spiritual master. It is Krishna’s mercy, kṛṣṇa kṛpāte guru mile guru kṛpāte kṛṣṇa mile it is by Krishna’s mercy that you will get the bona fide spiritual master and by the mercy of the spiritual master you will get Krishna. So Paramātmā arranges the meeting.

So this is Krishna’s mercy that you will meet the spiritual master, and by getting the mercy of the spiritual master you will get Krishna. So we must be very eager to know, and we must be very inquisitive like Dhruva Mahārāja was. He was very eager how to get the Lord. So Nārada Muni appeared before him. Paramātmā arranged it, “All right, he is very eager now. You go and show him the path, help him.”


He NEVER deviated an inch from his sannyasa vows, lived simply for Srila Prabhupada's service, and was jolly and unpresupposing, expecting nothing in reward and rejecting all honors except basic ashram of sannyasi unless I absolutely forced him; i begged him to accept honors or respect by accepting this small pillow on the floor vyasasana, for the sake of preaching to others! - sitting on a thin pillow on the dirt ground on a rice mat, only on Sundays before the crowd, when he gave his Sunday feast talks for our guests. He did not want this honor and rejected it twice, but i pushed, and as it was his revered Western Godbrother demanding he do it for sake of the ashrama of ours, our preachings' sake, he conceded and did it nicely thenceforth as required by us. He formerly never preached to us, as we were above him! Thus, by Krsna's will we may have dragged him down from Utthama Paramhamsa to more like a Madhyama Parivrajakacarya, and he started to preach more widely and with necessary aggressive force, but always in good humor, jolly, loving, selfless, austere, clean, devoted, renounced merciful, learned, grave, heartful.  Jolly , smiling, a delight to all! Best of the servants of Prabhupada, Gurudeva is One. He travelled the continents, but was banned in many places by jealous GBCists. Acting according to Srila Prabhupada 's explicit and strict instructions to him personally, he never left the bogus Iskcon, despite his Oriyan sanga begging him to do so, but rather sacrificed his all and was eventually martyred in Mayapura trying to reform the movement.


" HDG GGM is an amazing MAHA BHAGAVATA rasika bhakta of the Lord HE knows all the sastra by smrti memory.  I met him  in Soho temple. SRI DURGA DEVI  appeared to GGM in HIS room in BHUVANESVAR and told HIM," so at last you got rid of me !" then SHE left.  HH GGM called a devotee and told him, "call that girl that just left my room." - but that devotee could not find HER anywhere anymore. i considered myself lucky to had the chance to know who the real devotees are after SRILA PRABHUPADA, never mind we can still get the mercy of HDG GGM HDG ACBSP in vani seva  not in vapu , i think is better also because there is not the danger to offend the pure devotees of the lord by take THEM as ordinary people..." Abhaya Carana Seva dasa Prabhu


All Glories to his lotus feet!

I read with tears what you've sent about SGGM. I hope you are writing a book in this regard, and that this is an excerpt from it.


  I heard ONLY a FEW seconds of someone's playing a tape of SGGM. This was in Jan 1996. SGGM was shouting, "ANANTA, WHY ARE YOU IN MAAAAAAYAAAAAAA!!!???" I thought to myself, "WHO IS THAT??? He's a PURE devotee!!!," and I wanted to give up everything and go to that person and surrender to him. I found out the name of the speaker, and where to "find" him, so I wrote a letter to him.

Hare Krsna !


yes, this site is very nice for keeping always the ultimate goal in mind ... it's practical actually in this weird place we live in...



Krishna!  All Glories,  Sri Guru, Gauranga ! Please accept my humble obeisances at your feet.

"Those who witnessed the Lord’s pastimes saw Him dance and chant with ecstatic love for God, the likes of which had never been seen before. Lord Chaitanya encouraged everyone to follow this same process. He taught that anyone — regardless of background or spiritual qualification — can develop their innate love of God and experience great spiritual pleasure by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra."

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu ki Jaya!

From The Bhagavat, Its Philosophy, its Ethics and its Theology
By Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur

" Two more principles characterize the Bhagavata which is liberty and progress of the soul throughout eternity. The Bhagavat teaches us that God gives us truth as he gave it to Vyasa, when we earnestly seek for it. Truth is eternal and unexhausted. The soul receives a revelation when it is anxious for it. The souls of the great thinkers of the by-gone ages, who now live spiritually, often approach our enquiring spirit and assist it in its development. Thus Vyas was assisted by Narada and Brahma. "

This corroborates everything the "ritviks" and those following Srila Prabhupada without change have been saying! "The soul receives a revelation when it is anxious for it. The souls of the great thinkers of the by-gone ages, who now live spiritually, often approach our enquiring spirit and assist it in its development." The word "approach " is used. The spiritual masters approach the enquiring soul. This is active, this is ALIVE, this is now, this is the living words of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura our great great guru, and Lord Sri Krishna.



" When man admits the superiority of Love to God to all other systems of rule and ethics, he is not bound to work according to the Shastras intended for lower order of men. The common bonds of the inferior Dharma Shastras of Manu and Yagnavalkya have no influence on the free Vaishnavas who are God's own soldiers in the crusade against evil. The system of Mahaprasad is not only emblematic of the superior life of the Vaisnavas, but it is a part of the worship which ordinary theists cannot fully understand. The ordinary men are very much inclined to preserve the superiority of Reason over intuitive feelings of man towards the God of Love. "

Namaste Tamohara Prabhu;

Thank you for your kind encouragement in my spiritual life, as well as for the spiritual engagement in pure devotional seva. 

I am more than happy to help support your global outreach efforts and will be diligent in adding content to your wonderful site. A site that is purely and wholly dedicated to the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada's mood and movement. 

With affection and gratitude,

"Then the professor told me that he found each and every translation that Srila Prabhupada had made from Sanskrit into English. The professor told me that these translations that your Guru has made are the most obscure and brilliant explanations of these words from Sanskrit to English that he had ever seen. The professor admitted that with all of his education and training he could not have thought of these obscure and brilliant meanings that so perfectly expressed the inner truths of the mysteries of the Bhagavad Gita verses in a way that the usual words used in English would not have done. The professor then said having seen this translation work of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada he was convinced that Srila Prabhupada was the greatest Sanskrit scholar in the history of civilization and must have been directly enlightened by the Supreme Lord Krishna to accomplish this work." 

by BV Bhagavata and Srila Gour Govinda Swamis

The religion of elevating mundane men to the position of Acarya must end. Better one man following one pure devotee than thousands following fools. We have advanced saints among us, and in humility we worship them as great devotees, and that is right and good. But why do we need dozens of as-good-as-gods to be worshipped like God? That is a nonsense and produces nonsense. Tamohara dasa, 2015.

One prominent Vedic astrologer who did Tamal's chart, privately stated this

One prominent Vedic astrologer who did Tamal's chart, privately stated this:“Tamal’s chart is very clear as a low class, envious demoniac person who gets the best of all gurus, but who would use his guru for his own sense gratification, and illegally inherit his material assets. Intelligent people can ‘judge for themselves,’ although most devotees are very clear about what went on and who Tamal was, but there will still always be followers of rakshasas who just offend the pure devotee.

Srila Prabhupada's arrival to the USA

Several years after Srila Prabhupada first arrived in America, a disciple discovered the diary he had kept during his passage from India on the steamship Jaladuta. Inside was a poem, handwritten in Bengali, which Srila Prabhupada had written on board the ship just after it had arrived in Boston harbor. The poem beautifully captures Srila Prabhupada's first impressions of Western civilization and reveals his heartfelt…See More
