Verse 8, Damodarastakam

“Sporting in the water, feeding each other, roaming about in the forest, drinking honey-liquor and dancing are all included in rāsa-līlā.” Moreover, by saying namo ’nanta līlāya, Śrī Satyavrata Muni is offering his obeisances to the performer of ananta-līlā, or to He whose pastimes have no end – Śrī Kṛṣṇa...”

Rupa Gosvami's Glories

One who remembers and follows the instructions of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, taking shelter of his lotus feet, will certainly achieve spiritual perfection, or anurāgamayī-sevā in eternal Vraja. He can thus be a Rupānuga-Vaiṣṇava. Fortunate souls can perceive the specialty of Rūpa Gosvāmī and the pricelessness of his teachings...

DON'T DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM GURU AND VAISNAVAS

Once, a boy stole a pen from his school and gave it to his mother. But his mother didn’t...

Gurudeva Appears to Devoted Disciples

Śrīla Gurudeva endeavored to bring everyone to Vṛndāvana. He wants to make us all Vrajavāsīs. He therefore gave us a place nearby Rādhā-Ramaṇa, Rādhā Govinda, Gopinātha, and Madana-mohana. Gurudeva gave us a place in the shelter of Rūpa-Sanātana. He told us to stay nearby them, but now, all want to run far away. The fire of this desire is disturbing everybody. This is not a good idea. My request is not enough. If it were, then I would catch hold of everyone’s feet and pray for the devotees not to follow this idea and mentality. I was with Gurudeva and saw what he did. I saw how he gave the jīvas of this world great strength and power to attain svarūpa-siddhi. Jīvas do not understand. Babies do not know the path of their welfare, but Śrīla Gurudeva knows everything. Out of causeless mercy, he tries to bring us forward on the path of vraja-bhakti, which will lead us to our eternal welfare. If you try to follow Śrīla Gurudeva’s mood from morning to evening, then you will surely see for yourself that you are not distant from Gurudeva. But if you do not follow his footsteps, then aṣṭa-kālīya-līlā, aṣṭayāma sādhana, and eternal vraja-riti will not come into your heart. Only māyā will come and you will run for the business of the body and mind. You will forget about the business of the soul.

Q & A: What is Real Compassion?

No one knows where compassion should be applied. Compassion for the dress of a drowning man is senseless. A man fallen in the ocean of nescience cannot be saved simply by rescuing his outward dress – the gross material body. One who does not know this and laments for the outward dress is...
