If You Are Not Surrendered, You Will Fight and Make Mistakes

I told Svāmījī’s disciples, “You should continue to develop his mission after he goes to Goloka Vṛndāvana. I know of many instances where quarrels arise among disciples after their Gurudeva departs. These disciples fight for the post of their guru. All of you should not repeat these actions of quarrel and infighting. Be careful to not fight among yourselves and make every effort to collectively serve Svāmījī’s mission. Otherwise, you will commit mistakes.”

Sannyāsa Pastime of Śrīla Svāmī Mahārāja

A godbrother of Guru Mahārāja and Svāmījī called Sanātana Prabhu also took sannyāsa with Svāmījī. His age was 99 years. He told Svāmījī, “If you take sannyāsa, then I will also take sannyāsa, despite my advanced age.” And then Svāmījī became so energetic and he said, “Yes. I should take sannyāsa.” Then I made a very good sannyāsa-daṇḍa for Svāmījī. I also arranged the sannyāsa cloth for Svāmījī—the uttarīya and bahirvāsa. I showed

Verse 6: The Severity of Nāmāparādha

Sādhakas should remain thoroughly attentive to avoid committing all the offences mentioned in the previous section. Even a person who has committed all kinds of offences is redeemed by taking shelter at the lotus feet of Śrī Hari. If a most wretched and fallen person (a two-legged animal) who has committed severe offences at the feet of Śrī Hari ever takes shelter of the holy name of Śrī Hari...

Sri Gita-Govinda, Introduction – 15 Nov 2016 p.m.

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.

The Identity of the Soul

Once the sun arises the true color and nature of this world will automatically be seen. A sādhaka attaining svarūpa-siddhi is like the rising of the sun—prema suryaṁsu samyabhak. At that time everything, including the spiritual form and identity of the soul can be witnessed clearly. Yet before the sun of svarūpa-siddhi arises in the heart of the sādhaka, he may, according to his association, develop many attractions and identify himself with these attachments...
