Acaryas Quotes Gurudeva said today I Don’t Want To Meditate On You

I Don’t Want To Meditate On You

Śrīmatī Rādhikā said, “My mind is Vṛndāvana; My heart is like Vṛndāvana. They are not separate from Vṛndāvana. The minds of all other persons are not different from their hearts; their hearts and minds are one. But I am not like so. My heart is Vṛndāvana. I don’t want to meditate on You, that Your lotus feet should come into My mind like how the four kumāras, Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī, Śaṅkara, and Brahma meditate. I don’t want to meditate on You. I want Your lotus feet in My heart, but You should know that My heart is Vṛndāvana. If You place Your feet in Vṛndāvana, then I will know that You have entered My heart and set foot there. At once You should come to Vṛndāvana. Our chariots are quite ready. The minds and hearts of lakhs and lakhs of gopīs are like chariots. You should sit on the chariots and we will at once carry You to Vṛndāvana.”

Kṛṣṇa sat on the chariot and the gopīs pulled Him to Vṛndāvana, this is the mood of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu:

seī ta parāna nātha pāinū,
jāhā lāgi madane-dahane jhurī genu
Caitanya-caritāmṛta Madhya-līlā 13.113


[Now I have gained the Lord of My life, in whose absence I was being burned by Cupid and was withering away.]

The Lotus Feet of the Spiritual Master

If you are serving and obeying a guru like that, like Lokanatha dasa Gosvami, then sadhana-bhakti will manifest in your heart, after which bhava-bhakti, and then prema-bhakti will manifest – and after that all kinds of avidya (the ignorance of forgetting Krsna) will be destroyed. At that time you will attain the service of Krsna in Goloka Vrndavana. First prema-bhakti comes, and then ignorance goes. Guru first gives the seed of the desire to serve Krsna; this is called sraddha. That sraddha develops, and when anarthas somewhat leave, then nistha (steadiness), ruci (taste), asakti (spontaneous attachment), bhava or rati (spiritual sentiments), and then prema (pure love) comes. With the appearance of prema, this physical body will be totally gone. Thus, prema will come, and you will be free from all ignorance.
