Verse 3. Six Vows Favourable for Bhakti

Enthusiasm to serve Śrī Kṛṣṇa, full faith and steadfastness in that service, ensuring that all endeavours are solely for Kṛṣṇa’s service, renouncing the company of all others except Kṛṣṇa’s devotees and following in the footsteps of Kṛṣṇa’s devotees – these six practices enhance bhakti...

Radha Dasi and Nothing Else

Sri Krsna always wants to serve Srimati Radhika, and Prabhodananda Sarasvati also prays to be Her dasi. This is the highest topic of the Gaudiya Vaisnavas. Srila Rupa Gosvami, Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, and Srila Gopala Bhatta took his view –'Radha dasi' and not anything else – they want that Krsna should serve Srimati Radhika...

Water This Seed Of Devotion With The Water Of Hari-kathā

...You should try to have a very regular and good association of bona fide devotees. The seed of devotion has been planted in your hearts, but if you don’t water this seed of devotion with the water of hari-kathā; it may dry and be destroyed. You should carefully and diligently tend to this seed of devotion. You should always be in good association and you must also sincerely study scriptures like Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā, and all other books of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, Śrīla Svāmījī, and our Guru-varga. Thus, we should gradually...

How to Receive Anuraga

The dust, or raja there is special. What is that? This does not mean some powder but a relationship of love for a special person. If you have anuraga for Krsna and His associates, then you are a Vrajavasi. An ordinary person cannot be a Vrajavasi. He may stay at the bank of the Yamuna, or live inside Radha-kunda as a fish or tortoise, but he will not receive this anuraga...

Vow to Please Sri Radha

In this month we don’t eat tomatoes, honey, eggplant, loki, parmal or sesame seeds. I think, however, that it is more important to take a vow to not have any desire for sense gratification. We should vow that our mind will not go anywhere except to please Krsna – to please Damodara. Also, we should try to follow what Srila Sanatana Gosvami has told in Hari-bhakti-vilasa regarding this month, what Srila Rupa Gosvami has told in Upadesamrta and what Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami has told in Manah-siksa. Urja means power. Srimati Radhika is the Urja-sakti, power, of Krsna. Urja-vrata (vrata means vow) means Radha-vrata. Although we regularly recite Sri Damodara-astakam in the morning and evening, we must keep in mind that this is Sri Radha-vrata. We are attending classes – to please Srimati Radhika. Both in the morning and evening we will sing kirtanas of Radhika, and we will also visit the places of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna’s pastimes – we will go everywhere in Vraja Mandala. Why are we performing Vraja Mandala parikrama? It is because Sri Krsna gave a blessing to Narada Rsi that if one meditates on the Lord's pastimes or visits His pastime places in the holy dhama, these very pastimes will manifest within his or her heart. The dhama has power like that of Krsna; it will fulfill all desires of the devotees. We will go to Radha-kunda, Syama-kunda, Govardhana, Bhandiravana, Bhandiravata, Varsana, Nandagaon, Visakha-kunda, Purnamasi ki Gufa, the place where Srimati Radhika sang Brahmara-gita in Uddhava-kyari, Ter-kadamba, Yavat and Kokilavana. We will also go to the three Carana-paharis; one in Kamyavana, one in Nandagaon and one near Baithana. We will also go to Rasa-sthali in Vrndavana, and to so many other places. We will pray to Srimati Radhika at all these places.
