How To Make Your Life Successful

“If you want to make your life successful, happy, and peaceful, then try to give all of your love and affection to Krsna, and sometimes partly to all living beings.

WHAT WAS GURUDEVA'S SPECIAL CONNECTION TO THAKURJI?

“What were you doing in Govardhana?” Ācarya Kesari asked. “Why did you leave Śrī Śrī-Radha-Vinoda Bihārī? The roof has cracks and rainwater has been leaking on Ṭhākurajī. The pūjārī has not changed Their dress in many days and proper offerings have not been made. Ṭhākurajī is not stone! They came to Navadvīpa and called me to come and intervene. You must always serve Rādhā-Vinoda Bihārī with loving care, like a father for his children. If Ṭhākurajī is unsatisfied with your service, then no one in the temple can ever be happy. Before going anywhere, be certain that their worship will continue properly.”

Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi, Keśava, and Yaśodā’s Śālagrāma

After performing austerities, Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi first had darśana of the Lord’s form as Madana-gopāla, and after that, he had darśana of Śālagrāma. Keśavadeva manifests His svarūpa from the Śālagrāma. Next, Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi saw how the universe, with everything in it, had the shape of a Śālagrāma as well, and from that universe, Jagannātha manifested. When you look closely at the Deity of Lord Jagannātha, you will see how He, also, resembles the form of a Śālagrāma.

Our Business is Not to Enjoy – But to Help Krsna to Enjoy

We are all prakrti. And because, being prakrti, we are trying to become purusa, that is called māyā, or illusion. Just like if a woman dresses like a man and wants to act as man, that is illusion, similarly, we are differently dressed in the material ingredient, bhumir apo nalo vayuh. Everyone’s body is mad for these five material elements of the mind, intelligence, and there are also the subtle material elements. And with this combination we have gotten this body, and I am the spirit soul. I am trying to enjoy. This is material world. We have forgotten that we are part and parcel of Krsna. Our business is not to enjoy but to help Krsna to enjoy. That is our business, part and parcel.
