THE HIGHEST DEVOTION

Now come with me to Dvārakā and see one of the two kinds of mādhurya-rasa, namely svakīya-rasa, the love of Kṛṣṇa’s lawfully wedded wives. In Dvārakā, svakīya is the best rasa of all, and Kṛṣṇa’s 16,108 queens are the excellent examples. Of these queens, eight are most prominent, among them Rukmiṇī and Satyabhāmā are prominent, and among these two queens Satyabhāmā is the most exalted...

Oh, I Cannot Do That

Then Yogamaya told her, “You cannot go to Vrndavana, because you are not qualified. First you would have to take birth from a gopi’s womb, associate with the gopis, and try to follow them. You would have to marry a gopa like Durmukha, Durmada, Abhimanyu, or Govardhana Malla. Then, when you have given up that husband, you would be able to go to Krsna and make Him your beloved. This is the only process.”

Admission in Love’s School – 09 Feb 2013 – Govinda-lilamrta

By the prayers of the mahā-bhāgavata rūpānuga guru-varga, Vṛndā-devī helps the sādhakas in this line. She distributes līlā-rasa, bhakti-rasa, vraja-rasa and arranges everything for one to attain prema-bhakti. If anyone follows this program they are very lucky. And if they don’t follow, if they collect many other things, what they think or understand is not my question or answer. Our question and answer now is how can we be present near līlā-śakti? If one is present near līlā-śakti, She will carefully help him progress in spiritual life. She will give treatment, medicine, food, diet, lodge and favorable association. We are very lucky. Our Guru-pāda-padma is glorified throughout the three worlds. He always thinks about us and our eternal spiritual welfare. If a disciple does not remember the causeless mercy of his Guru-pāda-padma he is ungrateful and selfish. Such a person is useless and contemptible. According to one’s own desire and idea he cannot meet with the Vaiṣṇavas and understand the holy dhāma. People like this will only come as tourists for recreation—they will come and go without attaining any benefit. They do not touch the dhāma; the glories and mercy of the dhāma do not manifest in their hearts. Even if they try again and again without following the correct process, they will become hopeless and sick and run away from the holy dhāma. It will be impossible for them to stay in the dhāma and to make relationship with the dhamavāsīs.

Aisvarya in Vraja?

Aisvarya was more powerful. Arjuna was overpowered by aisvarya and forgot that Krsna was his friend. Arjuna’s mood, as well as the mood of all other associates in Dvaraka-lila, is full of aisvarya. Sometimes there is madhurya, but it is always defeated by aisvarya...

DID SRILA GURUDEVA SAVE ISKCON?

The case caused quite a stir in India. After going to the Kolkata High Court, it was transferred to the Bombay High Court. In danger of losing all ISKCON properties and assets, ISKCON leaders begged Śrīla Gurudeva to testify for them in court. They remembered Śrīla Svāmī Mahārāja telling them, “If you have any difficulty, go to Śrīla Nārāyaṇa Mahārāja for guidance and help.”
