    Simply by associating with exalted devotees, anyone can attain perfection of knowledge and with the sword of knowledge can cut to pieces the illusory associations within this material world. Through the association of devotees, one can engage in the service of the Lord by hearing and chanting [śravaṇaḿ kīrtanam]. Thus one can revive his dormant Kṛṣṇa consciousness and, sticking to the cultivation of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, return home, back to Godhead, even in this life.

    Only a rare person who has adopted complete, unalloyed devotional service to Kṛṣṇa can uproot the weeds of sinful actions with no possibility that they will revive. He can do this simply by discharging devotional service, just as the sun can immediately dissipate fog by its rays.

    For one who is anxious to engage constantly in hearing such topics, kṛṣṇa-kathā gradually increases his indifference towards all other things. Such constant remembrance of the lotus feet of Lord Kṛṣṇa by the devotee who has achieved transcendental bliss vanquishes all his miseries without delay.

    As pouring water on the root of a tree energizes the trunk, branches, twigs and everything else, and as supplying food to the stomach enlivens the senses and limbs of the body, simply worshiping the Supreme Personality of Godhead through devotional service automatically satisfies the demigods, who are parts of that Supreme Personality.

  • Known as “Sourthern Kashi of India”, Pandharpur proudly hosts the “Kuladivat” of Maharashtra State- Shree Vitthal and Rukmini. Also known by the other names, Pandurang or Vithoba it is supposed to be The Supreme God of The Universe for all the Maharashtrians and an incarnation of Lord Shiva and Vishnu. It’s praises were sung and written by the most auspicious saints of Maharashtra- Saint Dnyaneshwar, Saint Tukaram, Saint Namdev, Saint Purandardas, Chikha Mela, Janabai and many others.

    In the temple of Vithoba, “Pad-Sparsha-Darshan” is a special ceremony. Irrespective of caste any devotee can enter the sanctum sanctorum and can place his/ her head at the feet of Vitthal. The Bhagwat Dharma sect is followed in Pandharpur, with full spirit.

    The river Bhima, better known as “Chandrabhaga” flows through the city. Large number of devotees walks from the whole of Maharashtra, to celebrate the “Ashadhi Ekadashi and Kartiki Ekadashi” twice every year. The palanquins (Palkhis) of various saints from different locations come together at Wakhri, 5 kilometers away from Pandharpur.

    Although not religiously very crucial, certain daily rituals do form the routine of Bhaghwat Dharma, at Pandharpur. These signify the devotedness of the followers towards it’s deity. These rituals include Kakad Arati (Early Morning Prayers) , Mahapuja (Mega-Worship), Mahanaivedya (Food offering), Poshakh (putting the robe) Dhoop Arati, Padya Pooja, etc. All this is performed in main Vitthal temple. As one enters from Namdeo-Payri (The Step in memory of Saint Namdeo) and comes out of the Westward Exit (the Paschim Dwar) one crosses various other temples- as many as 25, in the same premise.

    Ganesh Mandir, Garud Mandir, Ekmukh Dattatraya Mandir, Satyabhama Mandir, Kanhopatra Mandir to name a few.


    Geographical and Traveling Information
    From main Solapur city, Pandharpur is at a distance of 72 kilometers and is well connected by roads to practically every city in Maharashtra, railway track also exists. Pandharpur falls on Miraj-Kurduwadi-Latur track. From Solapur numerous local level transport buses commute to Pandharpur.


    Major Activities
    At Pandharpur, every Wednesday is regarded as an auspicious day and Ekadashi- auspicious day of the month. Four major festivals- Ashadhi Kartitki, Magh and Chaitra Ekadashis are yearly celebrated. Out of these, 1st two attract a crowd of about 8 to 10 lakhs.
    Apart from these, the temple premise also celebrates Gudhi Padawa, Ram-Navami, Dasehara and Deepavali festivals.

  • In the modern post-sexual revolution era, unrestricted sex pleasure is considered to be the platform of enjoyment. It is thought that the more you can stimulate your genitals, the more of a happy and fulfilled person you will be. But this philosophy grossly ignores the basic fact of life that we are not these bodies. If we focus our energies on trying to enjoy life by giving pleasure to something that is not really us, do you think it will possible for us to find lasting satisfaction? It will not be possible. This reminds me of the famous song "I Can't Get No Satisfaction." The person in the song was gratifying his senses without any restriction, but still he was completely miserable. If I am thirsty and dip my shirt sleeve in a glass of water will my thirst be quenched? Or course not. Why? Because I am giving water to the garment worn by the person rather than to the person himself.

    So this is exactly what we are doing in the act of sexual intercourse. We are simply giving pleasure to the garment worn by the person, not the person himself. This is why, even though sex gives a momentary sensation of heavenly pleasure as an incentive to encourage us to produce children, it ultimately leaves us feeling unsatisfied and unfulfilled because it is not us.

    So what should we do in order to find real, lasting satisfaction? The tendency for love union does become fulfilled when we reconnect ourselves through loving service with the Supreme Person. That connection is not enacted on the bodily platform. When the individual spirit-self engages himself in the transcendental loving service of the Supreme Self, he finds true happiness which does not diminish after a few minutes of intense pleasure. One is fully situated in devotional service the sensation of happiness unmistakably goes on increasing and increasing forever.

B H A K T I (DEVOTIONAL SERVICE). part 6.

In many places devotional service has been compared to a creeper.One has to sow the seed of the devotional creeper, bhakti-latā, within his heart.As he regularly hears and chants, the seed will fructify and gradually growinto a mature plant and then produce the fruit of devotional service,namely love of Godhead, which the gardener (mālā-kāra)can then enjoy without impediments. (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta).The Lord brought the desire tree of devotional service to this earth and becameits gardener.…

B H A K T I (DEVOTIONAL SERVICE). part 5.

The attitude of the disciple should be to satisfy the bona fide spiritual master.Then it will be very easy for him to understand spiritual knowledge.This is confirmed in the Vedas, and Rūpa Gosvāmī will further explainthat for a person who has unflinching faith in God and the spiritual master,everything becomes revealed very easily. (The Nectar of Devotion).In the Skanda Purāṇa it is advised that a devotee follow the past ācāryas andsaintly persons, because by such following one can achieve the…
