WHERE IS SRIMATI RADHARANI'S LILA-BHUMI?

We should vow to accept only what is favorable for the development of bhakti. We should go wherever there are sādhus; they are our good friends. There is no need for a big gathering; go to any place that is favorable. Where there is kṛṣṇa-guṇa-gāna, nāma-kīrtana, prasādam, and where bhakti’s rules and regulations are being followed—go to that favorable place. We should not go to a big gathering where there are politics. So many things are present there but there is no cultivation of devotion, bhakti-anuśīlana. Many people make a show that they are following bhakti, but this is actually only as a business. Their view, aim, and object is only business—body business, mind business, health business, and pratiṣṭhā, name and fame. They think, “I am Guru; I am Ācārya.” And they insult others. All this is unfavorable, pratikūla. If you need anything, pray to Kṛṣṇa, His associates, and to the Vraja-devīs. Pray to the holy dhāma. The followers of the Vrajavāsīs and Vraja-devīs reside here. Where is Śrīmatī Rādhārānī’s līlā-bhūmi? Where is Girirāja Govardhana? How can we meet with them? Gurau goṣṭhe goṣṭhālayiṣu sujane bhūsura-gaṇe: who is guru? He is always present in Vraja, goṣṭha. He is near the gopas and gopīs. Go and pray to them. Don’t go to anyone else. Have no other relationship. Fix your faith and relation. If you go today here and next day there, then one day it will be favorable and the next day unfavorable. If I run everywhere, then I will lose everything, because I won’t have any fixed relation.

VERSE 10: Who is Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s Dearmost Beloved?

First Part: Bhagavata Guru-parampara

In accordance with the needs of the times and for the welfare of the world, the supremely merciful Sri Bhagavan and His dear associates descend, bringing the gifts of their instructions. They drive far away all godless persons, whose atheistic thoughts are averse to dharma, and they establish sanatana dharma in the form of suddha-bhakti, which is the means for the eternal welfare of the jivas. In the present yuga with its powerful influence of Kali, Sri Gaurasundara, the munificent incarnation of Kali-yuga, saves the fallen souls by bestowing prema (love of God) which had not been given previously. His followers, who are themselves in the line of Sri Svarupa Damodara and Rupa Gosvami, have appeared on this earth as Sri Gaurasundara’s potencies in the form of acaryas. They appear in order to immerse the ignorant jivas, who are intoxicated by materialism, in suddha prema-dharma (pure love of God).

Bring Vrndavan in the Heart

1. Today is Pavitra-rupini Ekadasi & beginning of Sri Sri Radha-Govinda’s Jhulan-yatra. 2. We should try to bring Vrindavan in our heart. 3. To be pure, arrange a swinging seat in your heart for Sri Sri Radha-Krishna. Then they will come with their associates and play there...

Who is Srila Rupa Gosvami?
