We and Sri Krishna!!!

No desires are left after desiring Him;
No words are left after describing Him;
No doubts are left after trusting Him;
No fears are left after loving Him;
No relations are left after befriending Sri Krishna.

Unifying the Four Bonafide Disciplic Succession

While conducting the Mayapur Yatra we visited the HQers of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur's preaching mission, which included his main temple Sri Sri Gadharvika Giridhari. While circumabulating around the deities one sees on the 4 corners outside the mandir itself, along the parikrama marg, the murtis of the 4 vaisnava acaryas of the 4 bonafide disciplic successions (as decribed in Padma Purana.)



Below you will find Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura's decription of how Sri Caintanya… Continue

Sri Advaita Acarya relieves a brahmana from his Vaisnava-aparadha

In honor of Advaita Acarya's appearance day



(from Bhakti-ratnakara, Fifth Wave, by Sri Narahari Cakravarti Thakura)



Raghava Pandita continued: "A wise person once told me that Advaita Gosvami stayed in Mathura during His pilgrimage because of the beauty here. At that time there was a worthless brahmana in Mathura who invariably spoke ill of the Vaisnavas. That was his worst habit. He was a proud scholar and a wicked man, so the inhabitants of Mathura feared… Continue

Idolatry and Deity Worship

In this text from Ray of Visnu chapter 13, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati discusses the difference between Idolatry and worship of Sri Murti with an American Professor.

108: The Significance of the Number

It is amazing how much Western science has taught us. Today, for example, kids in grammar school learn that the sun is 93 million miles from the earth and that the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second. Yoga may teach us about our Higher Self, but it can't supply this kind of information about physics or astronomy.



Or can it? 



Professor Subhash Kak of Louisiana State University referred to the statement by Sayana, a fourteenth century Indian scholar. In his commentary…

Krishna and His Pearls!!!

In His service sweat drops turned to pearls of salvation;

In His devotion tear drops turned to pearls of purification;

In His sermons rain drops turned to pearls of inspiration;

In Sri Krishna's love Yamuna's drops turned to pearls of benediction.

Thought Of The Day

If you don’t cultivate positive habits, if you don’t cultivate positive philosophy then you will be forced to cultivate negative thoughts. If you don’t have good habits you are going to have bad habits. You have a choice, either you cultivate good habits or you cultivate bad habits.
