Acaryas Quotes Gurudeva said today In Separation from Rūpa Gosvāmī

In Separation from Rūpa Gosvāmī

Śrīla Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura’s puṣpāñjali at the lotus feet of Rūpa Gosvāmī is unparalleled. In separation from Rūpa Gosvāmī, he is unable to maintain his life. Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī, Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī, Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī, Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura, Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, and the followers of their line feel intense pangs of separation from Rūpa Gosvāmī because, having offered their hearts to Rūpa Gosvāmī, they understand his glories. At present, we are not afflicted by feelings of separation from Rūpa Gosvāmī because we don’t understand his glories. If Rūpa Gosvāmī had not appeared in this world, then who would have opened the storehouse of vraja-prema? No one could have opened it. Why? Caitanya Mahāprabhu bestowed His mercy on Rūpa Gosvāmī at Prayāga and empowered him with all His potency.

VERSE 7: The Process of Performing Bhajana of Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s Names and Pastimes

If, however, one continuously takes the medicine of this sugar-candy of Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s names, form, qualities and pastimes with great honour and faith, the sweet taste of Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s name will gradually increase and the disease of material enjoyment, which is rooted in the desire to be aloof from Kṛṣṇa, will be...

We are One Family – San Francisco 04 July 1996

So you should try to be like this. We should know that we are in one family. Śrī Gaura Parivāra, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s family. Anyone who is taking Śrī Śacīnandana Gaurahari’s name, Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu’s name, must be honored. We should overlook any disqualifications on their part. Two persons are never of the same mood...
