The Supreme God, Jesus Christ and Universal language

The Supreme God created man. He is beautiful and He also made man like that. In the Bible it has been written that the Supreme Lord has a form. It has also been written in the Koran of the Muslims and in other religious scriptures that God, or Allah, created man in His own image. No one can deny that these statements are in the Bible and Koran.

Jesus went to India when he was about sixteen years old, and he visited many places of pilgrimage like Vṛndāvana, Ayodhyā, South India, and Jagannātha Purī. In Purī he saw Jagannātha, Baladeva, and Subhadrā and he heard Jagannātha addressed as Kṛṣṇa. From this name came Krista, then Kroosta, then Kroosna, and then Christ. There are no separate Gods. In this entire universe there is only one Supreme God. There are many gods, but the Supreme God is not Russian, British, German, or Australian. He knows all the languages perfectly, and ultimately there is no need of knowing these languages. There is only one real language in the entire world, and that language is called love.

WHAT BHAVA DID MAHAPRABHU EXPERIENCE IN GAMBHIRA?

Mahāprabhu stayed in the Gambhīrā for eighteen years. He there relished the moods of Śrīmatī Rādhārānī. He carried Kṛṣṇa in His heart, just like Śrīmatī Rādhikā does, and He experienced the sentiments She feels when She serves Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa’s beauty and sweetness appeared in Mahāprabhu’s heart. How could He tolerate this? He entered transcendental madness and would be absorbed day and night in ecstasy and the agony of separation. Before Kṛṣṇa did not understand His own sweetness and beauty, so He appeared as Mahāprabhu to comprehend this, and He took shelter of Śrīmatī Rādhikā’s complexion and mood to do so. Mahāprabhu stayed in the Gambhīrā always absorbed in the moods of Śrīmatī Rādhikā. Sometimes He heard Kṛṣṇa’s flute, and He then ran out of the Gambhīrā, just like the Vraja-devīs’ left their homes and all their relatives. They ran to Kṛṣṇa in the forest and there Kṛṣṇa tested them to see how much love and dedication they had. If they became angry at Kṛṣṇa or left, then it would show that they had no pure love. Sometimes we are tested to see if we have love or if we are selfish. If any disturbance or obstacle comes, and we then become agitated and angry, it is a symptom that we do not have selfless love.

Developing Rādhā-niṣṭha

Pure renunciation is actually a natural distaste for material matters and a taste for the dust of Śrī Rādhā’s lotus feet. Sādhakas who possess exclusive faith in Śrī Rādhā (rādhā-niṣṭhā) are solely attached to the fragrance of Her lotus feet. Without Śrī Rādhā, they have no taste for Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Material happiness seems insignificant to such sādhakas, who have firm attachment for Her lotus feet and who are not slightly inclined toward any other transcendental practice and goal...

The Supreme Magician Yogamaya – France 25 June 1997

His wife climbed up on that rope and began to dance with so many vessels on her head, holding a bamboo stick in her hands and dancing, coming and going, like this and that. The king and his wife became so happy. Very good magic. When she came down, the queen herself took her very valuable necklace and gave it to that lady. The two young boys were standing there and said, “Mother give me that.” Both were quarreling and forcibly trying to take it. The mother took it off and was in the middle keeping it and they were quarreling to take it, but both the sons were equally powerful and strong, so they were pulling each other. In the meantime, one boy took his sword from his case, and the other did also, and at the same time, one took the head of his brother, and the other took the other’s. Both fell down; their heads were both cut off. The mother came weeping, “Oh my two sons, I have lost!” She took at once the sword and immediately cut off her neck. Then the father came and said, “Oh my two children and wife have been killed! How can I live?” Then he took one sword and cut off his head...

Verse 4: Association That Nourishes Bhakti

Bhakti appears by the association of Bhagavān’s devotees, but since one may not know how to associate with Vaiṣṇavas, this topic is explained in this verse. By the negative effect of maintaining affectionate relationships with the jñānīs, who desire liberation from material existence, with the karmīs, who desire to enjoy the fruits of their actions, and with gross sense enjoyers, one’s bhakti is harmed. One should not give these three types of persons any advice or any item...
