DON'T FOLLOW THE DVARKA-VASIS' MOODS!

How can we obtain this sevā-vṛtti, service tendency? We will not serve anyone else. We came to this world to learn this service mood and to follow this. We will be the servant of the servant of the servants of the Vraja-devīs. Otherwise all activities will be karma and only give suffering in the form of pāpa and puṇya. Kṛṣṇa even left all His queens when He disappeared. For their protection, Arjuna came and said, “I’m taking everyone to Hastināpura and I will serve and protect you all.” But along the way, some cowherd boys came and beat Arjuna with sticks, took his Gāṇḍīva bow and stole all of Kṛṣṇa’s queens. Arjuna was hopeless, devoid of all strength, and crying like a child. Where did this power come from and where did it go? If one has relation with Kṛṣṇa, then all power will be present, but when He is gone then everything is lost. As long as Śrīla Gurudeva is present then we are all behaving like princes from the wealth of guru, but after he removes his external presence what do we do? Therefore, do not lose your relation with Śrīla Gurudeva! Do not go distance from him! If you do, you will understand what real suffering is. Śrīla Gurudeva is always protecting his own followers, but we must not cut ourselves off from him. Don’t follow the Dvārakāvāsīs or the moods of Dvārakā.

Increasing Kama – Bhagavad Gita

Kṛṣṇa came to increase the kāma of Vraja. So how much kāma do the entities of this world have? Only a little. The living entities enjoy, and then they have nothing left. Then when kāma next attacks them, they again...

Remembering My She-Goat – 20 May 1996 – Radlett, U.K.

“You are like my father. When you were explaining Srimad Bhagavatam, I couldn’t understand what you were saying. I was remembering my she-goat. She is very big and white. She has a beard like you. And when you were doing like this, I was always remembering my she-goat. Today, she has unluckily gone somewhere and I am not searching for her. So, I was weeping for my she-goat...”

Verse 12: Bhāva-bhakti

When bhāva-bhakti manifests in the heart of the sādhaka his hankering to obtain Śrī Kṛṣṇa increases day by day. The desire to serve Śrī Kṛṣṇa becomes the obsession of his heart. This is nicely expressed in...

Glories of Srila Rupa Gosvami

After Sriman Mahaprabhu disappeared from the vision of the world, the discussion of parakiya-rasa was not prominent. According to scripture, mundane rasa, this world’s love between those who are unmarried, is very immoral, illicit and sinful. However, in addition to manifesting the endless varieties and wonder of vipralambha and sambhoga, the meeting and separation pastimes of Radha and Krsna, Srila Rupa Gosvami also established the superiority of parakiya-rasa. By using evidence from many different sastras, he proved that Lord Sri Krsna is not an ordinary nayaka (lover) and Radhika is not an ordinary nayika (beloved). In other words, when there is meeting between a mundane lover and beloved in the parakiya mood it is very sinful, but Sri Krsna is a transcendental personality, god Himself, and everything is possible for Him. Therefore, if He is the object of the parakiya-bhava, there is no fault or defect in this. Rather this is the topmost supremely pure manifestation of madhurya-prema, the romantic mood.
