This Is The Glory Of Srimati Radhika – 20 May 1996 – Radlett, U.K.

But yet, the kinkaris didn’t allow Him. They want Krsna to go and meet Srimati Radhika. But they restrict Krsna outwardly. They tell Him, “You cannot meet Srimati Radhika.” Who is He? Who is that black person? He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead and the Lord of lords...

IS GURU BHAKTI FIRST? Is Guru-sevā the only way?

If one forgets his identity as the servant of guru, he has not taken shelter of guru but, rather, stolen guru’s post. “Who is guru?” “I am guru.” “Then what is your Guru Mahārāja’s post?” “I am now jagad-guru.” If this position comes and one cheats others, then everything will be lost. “Dāso ’ham,” I am the servant. I am guru-dāsa, the servant of Śrī Guru. And anyone who comes, I will collect them and bring them to the shelter of Śrī Guru. This is my duty. If I don’t do this, I will lose everything and will fall prey to brahmavāda, bauddhavāda, or māyāvāda. Here it is written, guru pādāśraya, dīkṣā, then śikṣā, and viśrambheṇa guru-sevā. This means your guru-sevā must continuously go on, and anything that comes to you must be entirely offered to Śrī Guru. “My love, affection, desire, duty, property, wealth, health, and everything I possess is for guru-sevā.” Then everyone who is near you will come inside that channel and flow. If you are independent, then the flow of guru’s mercy will stop, and you will not be helpful to any jīva. Then you are not an authority; you are a cheater. This is called māyāvāda. Water is helpful for people to drink, but when it is very cold, the water becomes ice, hard like a rock and undrinkable. When guru’s śakti comes, a little power, then I think, “I am the master.” ‘Prabhuta pai, mada kahi nahi,’ all become intoxicated with position and authority. Where am I now? Have I crossed māyā? Visvāmṛta Ṛṣi tried to send his unqualified disciple to heaven upon his repeated requests, but the demigods kicked him out, shouting, “Get out! Rascal!” He shouted, “Gurudeva, Gurudeva, I am falling, save me! I will die.” Then Visvāmṛta Ṛṣi shouted, “Tiṣṭha!” (Be fixed where you are!) Then he hung in the sky, legs up and head down. This is like the position of the bogus disciple who tries to steal the post of his guru. Sad-guru always thinks of himself as guru-dāsa, and always performs viśrambheṇa guru-sevā. He continuously serves his Gurudeva, and he brings everyone and gives them to the lotus feet of Śrī Guru. If anyone came to Śrīla Gurudeva, he would offer them to the lotus feet of Rūpa Gosvāmī, saying, “Now you are a rūpānuga.” Guru-sevā is essential! If I try to steal and enjoy guru’s property, I will be a great demon. Gurudeva appears in his śrī-vigraha for the sādhaka. Gurudeva first appears in this world and helps the living entities in one body and then Guru-pāda-padma appears everywhere in thousands and thousands of bodies. If anyone serves him, worships and follows all rules and regulations of bhakti in front of him, then he will be connected to Śrī Guru, and vraja-bhakti-rasa, prema-rasa, and vraja-bhāva will flow to that person. This is the bhajana-rasa-dhara that comes to the sādhaka. The sādhaka will not think, “I am equal to Śrī Guru.” Uddhava asked Kṛṣṇa, “How can I protect myself from māyā when You go?” “Worship My Deity.” śailī dārumayī lauhī lepyā lekhyā ca saikatī manomayī maṇimayī pratimāṣṭa-vidhā smṛtā Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 11.27.12 The Deity, or arca-vigraha of Śrī Bhagavān, is of the following eight kinds: marble or stone, wood, iron, gold or any other alloy, clay, painted, sand, mentally conceived, and made of gems, pearls or jewels. If you have nothing, then you can even draw a picture of Śrī Guru on the wall and worship him there. The Deities of God and Śrī Guru are not different. If you don’t worship guru and perform viśrambheṇa guru-sevā, you will fall down. Prema-sevā is learnt from Guru Mahārāja. By serving Guru-pāda-padma, pure devotion will come in your life.

Lord Baladeva's Appearance Day

Krsna is sac-cid-ananda-vigraha. This word actually consists of three words: sat, cit, and ananda. Krsna Himself is considered to be the predominating Deity of cit. Cit means jnana, which, when condensed or intensified, converts into bhava; and this bhava goes up to the stage of mahabhava. Baladeva Prabhu is the predominating Deity of sat. Sat means existence, and all existence comes from Balarama Prabhu. Even the existence of Krsna's body is due to Balarama. Radharani is the predominating Deity of ananda, and all these three are toether sat, cit, and ananda in Krsna. Although all these three are in Krsna together, they are also separate. This is Krsna's inconceivable potency. Each and every potency of Krsna can take a separate form. His drsti, His sight, also becomes personified. His capacity to see is His potency, and it can also take a form. In our case, this potency is invisible, but in Krsna's case the same potency can take a form. Drsti, the potency to see, can also become personified. This is true also in the case of Radharani, Her rupa is Rupa manjari and Her sight is Nayana-mani Manjari. In this way, although the sac-cid-ananda potencies are in Krsna, when they take forms they become Balarama and Radharani. As Ananga Manjari Balarama serves Radharani in the conjugal mellow. In Radha Kunda the central and most important kunja is Svananda sukadha kunja. This kunja belongs to Ananga Manjari, and in this kunja she always arranges nice paraphernalia for the pastimes of Radha-Krsna.

We Are Not Masters To Chastize

Please don’t be disturbed by my strong words. I don’t want to create any problem or give you any trouble. You are free to accept or disregard what I am saying. You can accept more, or less. I have a shop here. You can come and take the goods in my shop, or you can leave without them. If you think my goods are all right, you may take them; if not, then don’t take them...
