Thunder Against the Holy

“When the Mayavadi impersonalist chants the Name of Krsna, our Vrndavana Dasa Thakura says that his praise, his taking the Name, and his devotional characteristics are just like thunder against the holy body of Krsna. There is no soothing effect from his chanting. In the Gaudiya Matha [the spiritual society founded by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupada], we are interested in Reality, not in appearances.

In this month Saradiya-rasa took place, but it did not last for only one month. Even Krsna Himself could not conceive how long it lasted, nor could the Gopis. Only Yogamaya knew.

Śrīpāda Narottamānanda Brahmacārī was a disciple of Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda.

Śrīpāda Narottamānanda Brahmacārī preached vigorously in the cities and villages throughout Bihar and Bengal, such as Paṭnā, Dumkā, Rājmahal, and Bhāgalpura.

True Dharma, From Darkness to Light – Rasa-pancadhyayi

You know all the secret dharmas and how one should act and not act, therefore we do not even need to say anything to You. Why? One should not be very talkative in front of seniors and speak big words. Instead one should humbly hear from them...

Whom Can You Trust?

In this world we trust various persons. In the transcendental world – in other words, regarding transcendental subject matters – whom should we trust? We cannot see the transcendental world by our eyes, and we cannot touch it with any of our senses.
