SPIRITUAL MASTER IS A REPRESENTATIVE OF SHRIMATI RADHARANI
I cannot glorify Shrila Guru Maharaj because it is infinite for me. Externally we will see Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur chosen him as a sampradaya acharya. It is external identity. But, actually, Saraswati Thakur’s comment is very sweet, he told, “Whose Guru’s what position – I do not know, but my Guru is an indifferent form of Radharani – that I know”.
You can ask me, “Today is Śrīdhar Mahārāj’s appearance day. Why are you talking about Rāmānanda Rāy?” But it was necessary, because you do not know what importance this has for the mission of Śrīla Śrīdhar Dev-Goswāmī Mahārāj. He was non different form with Rāmānanda Rāy’s divine form.
If you read Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita, there carefully to read Madhya lila, eighth chapter. Then you will understand everything, if carefully read under guidance of some spiritual master.
It is Impossible to Get Known about Krishna Consciousness without Mercy of a Devotee
Actually, a wave of Krishna consciousness overflowed Russia.
Because Krishna Himself wants to take you all.
And seeing it Krishna embracing otherwise it is not possible to get Krishna consciousness.
But it is happening through devotees. Mercy of the devotees gave that inspiration. And devotees easily go to Krishna consciousness.
About Guru Maharaj
(Appearance Day Of Shrila Shridhar Maharaj)
Today is appearance day of our Guru Maharaj, Shrila Bhakti Rakshak Shridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj.
Bhagavan Himsilf told:
janma karma cha me divyam evaṁ yo vetti tattvataḥ tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma nayti mām eti so ’rjuna
That means, really, we cannot understand what is the appearance day of Guru or appearance day of Krishna.
Who is Vedavyas in Gaura-lila?
Krishna Das Kaviraj – everyone tells he is Chaitanya-lila-Vyas. Vyas means who is spreading Chaitanya-lila widely.
But Kaviraj Goswami said, “No, I am not Vyas. Vyas is Vrindavan Das Thakur.”
And what I heard from Shrila Guru Maharaj that conclusion I gave in there two shlokas.
Shri Chaitanya Bhagavata on Russian
Krishna is so merciful first appear in Russia in Saint Petersburg in the form of Radha-Madhav. And now Shri Chaitanya Bhagavat form the most glorious form I cannot conceive it and appear to us.
What Happens During the Initiation
Shrila B. S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj: Here rasa meanings loving relationship with Lord. Loving relationship with full attachment with Lord. That is called nama-rasa. And with five kind of relationship what you have with that you will serve to Krishna and will get the ecstasy, joy in your heart. And more and more seva.
