Acaryas Quotes Gurudeva said today Why I Have Called You

Why I Have Called You

We have called you all from so many places around the world. Why? In this way we will explain to you the moods of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and how He wanted to give rāgānuga-bhakti, and especially rūpānuga-bhakti, the service to Śrīmatī Rādhārānī.

We have no direct relationship with Kṛṣṇa. Our Svāminī is Śrīmatī Rādhikā. Our relationship is with Her, and Kṛṣṇa is Her most beloved. We will explain this principle for the next 15 days, and if you are qualified to accept a sprinkle of what Mahāprabhu wanted to donate, your life will be most successful. That is why I have called you.

Now there are terrorists all over the world, and they want to destroy all those who do not surrender to them and their conception of God. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu never killed anyone, and even when Kṛṣṇa and Rāma killed, They gave salvation and love and affection. But what can the terrorists give? They are in fact against religion. I pray to Kṛṣṇa to change them. We should pray to Kṛṣṇa to give love and affection to all; to every tree and every creeper.

Sweetly Auspicious – Govinda-lilamrta

Madhumaṅgala is always joyful. But he doesn’t reserve his happiness simply for himself. His name is Madhumaṅgala. Madhu means honey, and mangala means auspiciousness. He is very nectarful and sweet. He can alter the bitter or dark mood of anyone, making them joyful like himself. In Vraja-maṇḍala, no one has a bad mood. But, sometimes, if anyone has māna, depression or abhimāna, Madhumaṅgala changes their mood and gives Kṛṣṇa’s sweetness. He has this mādhurya reserved...

Our Relationship With Balarama

After two or three months, in order to protect Rohini from the atrocities of Kamsa, Vasudev sent her to Vrndavana to live in the home of Nanda Baba and Yasoda. Yogamaya had inspired him to do so. After Baladeva's plenary expansion had been in Devaki's womb for six months, Yogamaya took Him from her womb to Gokula, where she put Him in Rohini's womb, and both the plenary portion and original Balarama merged there. It appeared, and everyone thought, that Devaki had a miscarriage, but actually that plenary portion had been transferred to Rohini's womb. As a magnet attracts iron, so the original Baladeva attracted His own expansion. Eight months later, Rohini begot her son, and therefore, all in all, Sri Baladeva had been in her womb for fourteen months...


One day, Prāṇa Gopāla Gosvāmī gave a blanket to Śrīla Bābājī Mahārāja to protect himself from the winter. When Śrīla Bābājī Mahārāja wrapped it around himself during the night, he felt a little sleepy. On the next day, he took the blanket and while returning it to Prāṇa Gopāla Gosvāmī, he said, “Gaura Kiśora doesn’t have prema for your blanket. This blanket made me sleep for the entire night and didn’t let me do bhajana. Therefore, you should keep it with you.” On another day, a person gave Bābājī Mahārāja a shawl. Śrīla Bābājī Mahārāja folded the shawl and kept it hanging from his bhajana-kuṭīra. When someone asked him why he did so, he said, “By seeing that I have a shawl, the winter will not come near me. It will run far away...”
