Appearance of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Today is the appearance day of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura. Yesterday, we endeavored to hear the glories of Srila Jiva Gosvami. Today, I will repeat what I have heard about the glories of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura from the Guruvarga. For the pleasure of Guru and Vaisnavas, we will endeavor to hear the kirtana of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura. They have left this for us. A farmer plants seeds in a field and these seeds grow into trees and plants that bear fruits and vegetables respectively. A person who eats the seed eats poison. One should not harm the seed. The seed should be planted in the ground and then the plant should be nurtured. One can then obtain fruits, vegetables, and many grains from the plants. Those people who don’t follow the Avirbhava and Tirobhava tithis of the Guruvarga destroy themselves by the seed...

IS DOUBT THE ONLY REAL BONDAGE?

If you have absolute faith in your mother, father, friends, husband, wife, children,  society and others, then where is your complete faith in God? Unless you lose your faith in these material personalities, then you will continue to be in material bondage. On the other hand the only type of bondage for us is doubt. As long as we have doubt, we will remain in material bondage. So Srila Gurudeva would say; “If you have doubt you will go out.” When we maintain doubt in the Lord and the devotees, then we remain in the bondage of samsara. So how will we get this transcendental faith? Where will it come from? Who will give it to us? It is very easy to be doubtful and to have doubt towards everything and everyone. Many people are there who have so many good qualities and big position, what lacking did Rama have? He was maryada-purushottama, He followed all etiquette and rules and regulations, but what happened? People had doubt even in Rama, like the washerman. What fault did the Lord Ramacandra have? But the washerman still had doubt in him. And he also doubted Sita, who was the Mother of the whole world. He doubted Her chastity and who was he? He was just a simple washerman.  Parvati Devi, who is the associate of Siva Thakur and like the mother of the whole universe, also had doubt in Sita and Rama. When they went to Earth to see Rama's pastimes, she saw that Sita had been kidnapped by Ravana, and Rama was wondering in the forest lamenting. She asked Siva Thakur, "How can this be the Lord? Why is He lamenting like an ordinary man?" In this way, even Parvati had doubt in Rama and Sita. And what happened? We can see because of her doubt, Parvati had to perish. Her downfall was certain. Why? Because of her doubt in the Lord and Sita  later on she had doubt in her own husband. She did not follow his instructions and went to Daksa's yajna, and there she was burnt to ash. So it is said Krsna tests us. Krsna says, "If you want to come to me then I will test you. What will I do? I will make you wander in the forest like a beggar. You will have nothing to eat just grass and roots and fruits. If you still do not give up your desire to come to Me then I will test you again. I will make you the servant of my servant of my servant." je kare amara.... sarva nasa  "For that person who wants to come to Me, then first I will destroy everything they have. Then if they still want to come to Me then I will make them like a beggar wandering without any possessions, like animals eating only grass, roots and fruits. If they still do not leave Me then I will make them the servant of the servant of the servant of my servants. Then I will see if their desire is still there and if they still have faith in Me without doubt." We see Krsna may give such difficult circumstances to those aspiring for His shelter. He says, "If still you do not want to give up My shelter then I will make you the servant of my servants." Krsna will first test us to see if we have complete faith in Him or not. Why? If we become close to someone and have doubt in them then we can make great offences. (CLICK ON THE TITLE TO READ THE COMPLETE ARTICLE)

WHAT IS THE HIDDEN MEANING OF SNANA-YATRA?

Snāna-yātrā is the appearance day of Jagannātha, Baladeva, and Subhadrā in this form.

GET THE ASSOCIATION of VAISNAVAS WHO HAVE "Mañjarī-Bhāva"

The association of Vaiṣṇavas who have mañjarī-bhāva will grant us entrance into Vraja and a place in the feast of anurāga. By that association we will develop the mood of a servant of the servant of the servant of the Divine Couple, and will have not even a moment to waste in sense enjoyment or bad association.
