Krsna Is Asat-sanga? The Loveful Test – Gita-Govinda

Those who have or practice strong ananya-sarana to Srimati Radharani see even Krsna to be asat-sanga. If you are not careful, He will trick you and take you to Dvaraka and say, “Isn’t this good?” So be careful. Even Krsna can be asat-sanga. He does this to separate those who are not serious and those who desire nothing else but the shelter of Srimati Radharani. He is Nagara-narayana. He goes everywhere and observes everyone...

WHAT WAS SRILA GURUDEVA'S SPECIALTY?

How many people have love for Guru-pāda-padma? How many have room for him in their hearts? How many like him? Who understands his specialties? Who is serious? Some people think that their nourishment can come from any farmhouse, where they will eat and become fat and healthy. But this is impossible. That food is not helpful for you. One who always drinks filtered, purified water will not and cannot drink drain water or ordinary tap water. The glories of the Vrajavāsīs are rarely available. Without a Vrajavāsī, the Vrajavāsīs cannot be glorified. What Śrīla Gurudeva explained to us is ve rare, and is the wealth of our lives, and the wealth of this line. Param Gurudeva said to him, “I am very fortunate. My paramparā will not stop. You are a Vrajavāsī, so you will continuously distribute vraja-rasa.” Many people follow bhakti, but mixed bhakti. They do not know what pure bhakti is. They have no idea. They perform worship, service, and do vratas, but all for the maintenance and prosperity of the body. They have no idea about the soul and how the soul is spiritually born. You cannot simply sow any seed in any place at any time of the year, give it some water, and expect it to grow. The expert gardener knows exactly when, where, and how to plant the many different seeds, and what care and nourishment they need. Śrīla Gurudeva came to distribute rāgānugā, rūpānuga-bhakti. He was sent by the Divine Couple to fulfill Their desire for this line of rūpānuga-bhakti to be spread throughout the world. This was Mahāprabhu’s desire when He appeared in this world.

What is Real Bhakti? – 26 Jan 1997 Kuala Lumpur

Caitanya Mahaprabhu tells that the soul is who I am. You should try to realize this soul. Don’t try to give pleasure to this body. You cannot save it anyhow. The doctors cannot save you, neither can the engineers. Scientists do so much labor to make this body happy. They are trying to invent ways that a new heart can be given, a monkey’s heart can be given to a dog and a dog’s brain can be given to you, but they cannot know what is the atma. They have invented so many strange things, this electricity, airplanes, computers, weapons that can kill lakhs of people, like they did in Japan. Yet, they cannot create even a leg of a small ant. They cannot invent the atma and what things makes one happy...

Gopastami

Everyone was greedy for Kṛṣṇa’s darśana. This is the love of Vraja. Everyone has the good fortune of Kṛṣṇa’s darśana. This is rasa. Only taking rasamalāi and drinks cannot make the mind and body peaceful and satisfied. You must take bhāgavata rasa. That rasa is necessary. His glories are unlimited. If anyone gets one drop of it, then he will not wait for anything else. Until we get this rasa, all will be running for this useless material love. Everyone is running for this love to hear one sweet word. But if once we get the darśana of Śyāmasundara, no desire to taste any other rasas will be there. We must have greed and enthusiasm for that.

Mādhavendra Purī, Advaita Ācārya, and the Glories of Śālagrāma

Mādhavendra Purī is the root of the tree of divine love. Our sampradāya of prema-bhakti stems from this root and is flourishing even now. Mādhavendra Purīpāda first gave mañjarī-bhāva, gopī-bhāva, and vraja-bhāva to the people of Kali-yuga. Mādhavendra Purī had a desire to turn everyone into a pure devotee. But not everyone followed his instructions. He tried again and again—but not everyone heard him. And those who heard him would not follow his instructions; they would not practice what they had heard...
