The Garden of Vrnda-devi

...The Vrajavasis shower one with nectar. When people come to Vraja, they will get this benefit. Radharani opens Her store and tells Vrnda-devi to distribute this nectar of Vraja-rasa to anyone who comes to her in this month...

Vow to Please Sri Radha

In this month we don’t eat tomatoes, honey, eggplant, loki, parmal or sesame seeds. I think, however, that it is more important to take a vow to not have any desire for sense gratification. We should vow that our mind will not go anywhere except to please Krsna – to please Damodara. Also, we should try to follow what Srila Sanatana Gosvami has told in Hari-bhakti-vilasa regarding this month, what Srila Rupa Gosvami has told in Upadesamrta and what Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami has told in Manah-siksa. Urja means power. Srimati Radhika is the Urja-sakti, power, of Krsna. Urja-vrata (vrata means vow) means Radha-vrata. Although we regularly recite Sri Damodara-astakam in the morning and evening, we must keep in mind that this is Sri Radha-vrata. We are attending classes – to please Srimati Radhika. Both in the morning and evening we will sing kirtanas of Radhika, and we will also visit the places of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna’s pastimes – we will go everywhere in Vraja Mandala. Why are we performing Vraja Mandala parikrama? It is because Sri Krsna gave a blessing to Narada Rsi that if one meditates on the Lord's pastimes or visits His pastime places in the holy dhama, these very pastimes will manifest within his or her heart. The dhama has power like that of Krsna; it will fulfill all desires of the devotees. We will go to Radha-kunda, Syama-kunda, Govardhana, Bhandiravana, Bhandiravata, Varsana, Nandagaon, Visakha-kunda, Purnamasi ki Gufa, the place where Srimati Radhika sang Brahmara-gita in Uddhava-kyari, Ter-kadamba, Yavat and Kokilavana. We will also go to the three Carana-paharis; one in Kamyavana, one in Nandagaon and one near Baithana. We will also go to Rasa-sthali in Vrndavana, and to so many other places. We will pray to Srimati Radhika at all these places.

The Glory of Sri Radha

Sri Krsna was present at Vamsivata, the place of the rasa dance, but He was not happy. He wanted to perform loving pastimes but He was all alone. Srimati Radharani then appeared from His left side, and Sankara (Siva), Sri Gopisvara, appeared from His right side as guru-tattva. Radha ran to Krsna with great pleasure. Ra is for anuragi, meaning ‘deep spiritual loving attachment,’ and dha is for dhavati, which means ‘to run very fast, with great eagerness...’

Memories and Dasya-prema – 03 July 1996

We cannot go directly to Vaikuṇṭha, first salvation will come, but not that impersonal kind of salvation—salvation from birth, death, and from all sorts of sense gratification. Then our heart will be pure and we will come to the stage of bhāva, and then prema, and then we can go there. Śrīla Rāya Rāmānanda Prabhu spoke this verse—yan-nāma-śruti-mātreṇa…

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...
