Vrinda Devi , Baladeva, and the Gopis, by HH Tripurari Swami acbssp

Started by Welcome Dec 24, 2011. 0 Replies

Q. The Srimad Bhagavatam describes Krishna's pastimes with the cowherd girls (gopis) and in one place says that Krishna's brother Balarama was romantic with the gopis as well. The text reads as though Krishna and Balarama were involved with the same gopis but the commentary to verse 10.65.17, which cites Sridhara Swami, Jiva Goswami, and Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, states that this was not the case. The question I have is why couldn't Balarama, being an expansion of Krishna and thus the…Continue

The Glories of Krsna's Flute

Started by Welcome. Last reply by Welcome Nov 23, 2011. 1 Reply

The Glories of Krsna's FluteThird-gender devotees especially relish hearing the pastimes of Lord Krsna’s venu or flute. In the spiritual world, all objects—both animate and inanimate—are fully conscious and possess personified forms. Thus, verses describing Krsna’s flute as male are not merely allegorical. In the Bhagavata Purana, the gopis exclaim among themselves as follows: My dear gopis, what auspicious activities must the flute have performed to enjoy the nectar of Krsna’s lips…Continue

Lord Caitanya's Ecstatic MoodsThe pastimes of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu are also completely spiritual and transcendental. They are elaborately described in several sixteenth-century Gaudiya Vaishnava texts such as Sri Caitanya-carita by Murari Gupta, Sri Caitanya-mangala by Locana dasa Thakura, Sri Caitanya-bhagavata by Vrndavana dasa Thakura and Sri Caitanya-caritamrta by Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami. As the divine incarnation of Radha and Krsna combined, Lord Gauranga tasted the ecstatic moods of…Continue

Loving Pastimes Between Radha and the Gopis

Started by Welcome Nov 23, 2011. 0 Replies

Loving Pastimes Between Radha and the GopisThe transcendental pastimes of pure love and affection between Sri Radha and the gopis are also very beautiful and wonderful to hear. Not all of the gopis are situated in madhurya-rasa. Many consider themselves to be dear maidservants and loving friends to Sri Radha alone, and they have no desire to unite with Krsna in conjugal love. This is described in the Ujjvala-nilamani by Srila Rupa Goswami, wherein he discusses the nitya-sakhis as follows:The…Continue

Of course He likes Chandravali too but the left wing gopi known as Srimate Radharani has Him wrapped around Her little finger and Sri Krishna stole Srimate Radharani's mood to taste the Highest manifestation of Radhabhava in His form of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. "The left wing and right wing of the gopis has been explained by Rupa Gosvami in his Ujjvala-nilamani. The left wing is described in this way: mana-grahe sadodyukta tac-chaithilye ca kopana
abhedya nayake prayah krura vameti kirtyate
"A gopi who is always eager to be jealously angered, who is very enthusiastic for that position, who immediately becomes angry when defeated, who is never under the control of a hero, and who always opposes Him is called a vama, or a left-wing gopi."
Srila Rupa Gosvami describes the right-wing gopis in this way:
asahya mana-nirbandhe nayake yukta-vadini
samabhis tena bhedya ca dakshina parikirtita
"A gopi who cannot tolerate womanly anger, who speaks suitable words to the hero, and who is satisfied by His sweet words is called a dakshina, or a right-wing gopi."

Beautyful sudevi plays the Sarangi in different ragas. Tungavidya playing the Kinnari Vina, showers nectar on the rasa mandala.. indulaka plays the Svara – mandala and easily manifests the different Svaras.

Guna manjari

In the northeastern part of Sri Campakalata’s kunja lies the beautiful Gunanandaprada Kunja, where Sri Guna Manjari always resides. Her complexion is bright like lightning, and she wears a fine silk dress the color of a red jaba flower. She is famous for her strong desire to make Rupa Manjari happy. She is three days younger than Sri Tulasi (Rati Manjari) and is the delight of Sri Krsna. She is described as being daksina-prakhara in nature. Her age is 13 years, 1 month and 27 days. In gaura-lila she is known as Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami. (SGGSP)

Pinch of Ashes

Prabhupada, London, August 20, 1973: [...] My Guru Maharaja used to say that if we pray to God for all these nonsense things, it is just like a man goes to a king and the king says, “Whatever you want you can ask from me,” and if the man says, “Kindly give me a pinch of ashes.” It is like that. If we ask from God for some material benefit, it means that I am asking from a king a pinch of ashes.…
