The Advent of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu

The Thirteenth Chapter describes Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's appearance. The entire Adi-lila describes Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's household life, and similarly the Antya-lila describes His life in the sannyasa order. Within the Lord's Antya-lila, the first six years of his sannyasa life are called the Madhya-lila. During this time, Caitanya Mahaprabhu toured southern India, went to Vrandavana, returned from Vrandavana and preached the sankirtana movement.

Thought Of The Day

So that is our real business. This requires little intelligence, that "We are eternal. Why we are put into this process of taking birth and death?" Krsna also says, "This is the real misery of life -- janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi-duhkha-dosanudarsanam [Bg. 13.9]." They are trying, the so-called scientists, trying to increase... If the scientists sees that a man was to die immediately -- now he has lived one hour more -- he thinks that his science is successful. That is their foolishness. If you…

5 - भज गोविन्दं

कहा जाता है कि "भज गोविन्दं स्त्रोत्र" के रचना की प्रेरणा, एक व्यक्ति के कई सारे प्रश्नों को सुनने के बाद, श्री शंकराचार्य को मिली। इस पाँचवें श्लोक की प्रेरणा उस व्यक्ति के कुछ इस प्रकार से प्रश्न करने पर कि, "आपके अनुसार संसार में दुःख-ही-दुःख है, किन्तु सभी वस्तुओं को कष्टदायक बताकर - इस शरीर को व्याधि-मन्दिर बताकर - आप मेरे जीवन के सुख को क्यों नष्ट करते है? मेरे स्वजनों को हीं लीजिए। वे मुझ पर कितना सारा प्रेम जताते हैं। इससे मुझे कितना आनन्द मिलता है। क्या यह सब मुझे सुखी करने के लिए…

Thought Of The Day

The same thing happened to Brahma. Because he had to create this whole universe -- so many planets, so many demigods, so many human societies, so many, so many... There is no limit. He is the creator of everything. He's called, therefore, "great-grandfather," prapitamaha [Bg. 11.39]. No, pitamaha. Prapitamaha is Krsna, great-grandfather, because He instructed Brahma. So the same thing: He can instruct you also. What is that instruction? Yena mam upayanti te. The instruction means how you can…

4 - भज गोविन्दं

मूल:

भज गोविन्दं भज गोविन्दं भज गोविन्दं मूढ़मते।

हिन्दी:

जीवन यह अत्यन्त चपल है, नलिनी-दल-जल-तुल्य तरल है।

दुःख-व्याधि-अभिमान-संकुलित, शोक-निहत यह लोक सकल है॥

पहले पांडित्य-मोह, फ़िर वित्त-मोह, उसके बाद स्त्री-मोह - इन तीनों का खण्डन करके इस चौथे श्लोक में श्री शंकराचार्य बताते हैं कि मनुष्य का सांसारिक जीवन किस प्रकार…
