A discussion on Nama-aparadha – San Francisco 05 1996

If you have respect for Gurudeva and those who have given all these things, then you will be careful in this regard, as you will have sambhanda jñāna, a relationship with Śrī Guru and Vaiṣṇavas. In this way, there is very little chance to commit an aparādha to Gurudeva. One may think, “I am a Vaiṣṇava, he is a Vaiṣṇava, and all are Vaiṣṇavas.” In this way he will see everyone on the same level and he will care for none. So here, there is more chance to commit aparādha to the lotus feet of Vaiṣṇavas. This especially applies to those who have no clear vision when it comes to differentiating between a kaniṣṭha, madhyama, and an uttamā Vaiṣṇava. It is very essential to hear all these things. We have very little chance to associate with bona fide...

How to Honor Prasadam

Previously, all bhavas up to vatsalya (parental love) had been given, but not madhurya, and especially not manjari-bhava. Caitanya Mahaprabhu distributed manjari-bhava to the fortunate jivas, and for ordinary people He gave harinama sankirtana and the knowledge that we are all eternal servants of Krsna...

The gopis were not worried that Krsna may be harmed by Kamsa. That is not why they were distressed. They knew that Krsna’s heart was very soft and that as soon as Vasudeva and Devaki saw Krsna they would offer their affection and prayers to Him and not allow Him to ever return. They knew this would come to pass.  

Who Is Our Most Worshipable? – 24 Feb 1997 Bali, Denpasar

Caitanya Mahaprabhu has come to give only this thing, the gopis’ prema. He came and gave so many things, all rasas, but especially He came only for this. So if by hearing all these things a devotee will develop a greed for the highest topic of prema like the gopis, then he will come in the line of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Otherwise if he only wants to be in dasya then he will have to go in Ramanuja sampradaya, or to Madhva or Visnu Swami or Nimbaditya. They will not come in the line of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. So for this reason He came and gave nama prema [verse 10.00] Caitanya Mahaprabhu gave nama, plus this prema, only this prema. When He was going through the forest from Jagannatha Puri to Vrindavan, all the animals were crying and weeping and chanting Krsna and they received prema. What type of prema?

WILL MANTRA SHAKTI CONTROL YOUR MIND?

Mantra-śakti will control your mind and bring you to harināma, hari-bhakti and the dhāma. If you seriously chant the mantra given to you by Śrī Guru, then you will get strong relationship with the mahā-bhāgavatas, Guru-varga, Ṣaḍ-Gosvāmī, Dvadaśa-Gopāla, Cauṣatti-Mahānta, Aṣṭa-kavirāja, and all the ācāryas. How can it be understood that this is happening? A very sweet desire and greed for hearing hari-kathā and reading the books of the Guru-varga will increase in your heart. This greed will come first. After, you will become more enthusiastic to chant harināma. Then you will develop attachment to hari-dhāma and hari-jana and never want to leave them.
