Kṛṣṇa is Everywhere

If one claims to be totally surrendered to Kṛṣṇa, but when any problem comes he takes shelter of others, it means he has not really taken shelter of Kṛṣṇa. We are not really surrendered.

The advancement of material education has produced many graduates, postgraduates, professors, and many other so-called enlightened people in this age of Kali, but most of them are being wrongly educated. The result is that the more people are educated, the more they become immoral and atheistic. Moreover, wrongly educated people have practically no faith in the scriptural injunctions.

We only eat a little bit of pasta, or a piece or two of pizza, or some bread or sandwich, but for that, we are slaves throughout our whole life, simply to maintain this dead material body. How can we come close to God? This Saphala Ekadasi is our helper. She does not disturb anyone. She helps so that when any disturbance comes to us, we will not be disturbed.

Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī is Vilāsa Mañjarī in vraja-līlā. He is also known as Bhānumatī-sakhī by some authorities. Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī’s real glory is that he is the disciple of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī. He is his true follower in this world and in the spiritual world as well. If a person listens to Guru and Vaiṣṇavas being criticized, and tolerates such insults, then his inclination to engage in bhajana and bhakti will be lost. He will lose taste in mantra and nāma...
“Do suicide of your material desires. If you commit suicide with your body, then this is not everything. Your soul cannot commit suicide. So you should throw your material desires and anarthas into the ocean. Bathe in the tirthas, and pray, ‘Please, help me renounce all my material desires.’ Then the holy tirthas will wash away all your desires, and when you are clean, you can really follow the instructions of Srila Gurudeva. Strength will come to those who follow...”
Rupa Gosvami Prabhu bestows his special teachings on the sadhaka in Sri Hamsaduta. How will the sadhaka become qualified to meet Krsna? How will he understand the desire of Krsna? Therefore Gosvami wrote this story in which Lalita-devi teaches the swan Hamsa. She told him, ”Go to Govardhana, Radha-kunda, Syama-kunda, Kaliya-dhana, and Bandhiravana. Offer pranama there, sit for a while, and pray, and then these holy places will help you. All types of anuraga are present there...
