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.

Aisvarya in Vraja?

Aisvarya was more powerful. Arjuna was overpowered by aisvarya and forgot that Krsna was his friend. Arjuna’s mood, as well as the mood of all other associates in Dvaraka-lila, is full of aisvarya. Sometimes there is madhurya, but it is always defeated by aisvarya...

Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti and Aksaya-trtiya

“Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti was inaugurated on this very day in 1940. Paramaradhya Srila Gurudeva established Srimad-Bhagavatam as Gaudiya Vedanta, following the verse from Garuda Purana, ‘artho ’yam brahma-sutranam – Srimad-Bhagavatam is the purport of the Vedanta-sutra.’ Gaudiya-vedantacarya Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana also composed Govinda-bhasya following this same verse...”

Sweet Hari-katha and Darsana For Your Eyes and Ears

“The living beings have been circumambulating the universe for countless lifetimes in search of sense gratification, but the end result is always only distress and dissatisfaction. The jīvas do not realize that they suffer because they fail to develop their relationship with Kṛṣṇa, His associates, and their true home, Vraja-dhāma. A refugee, separated from his home and family, living in a desert-like existence, cannot relish happiness. Sri Sri Radha-Krsna sent the Guru-varga to collect souls and bring them to Vraja. They teach that if one develops even slight greed for Vraja-bhakti, and follows in the footsteps of the anurāgī-bhaktas on parikramā, then one’s life will be successful...
