DIKSA, THE TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE

14/07/2017
Brazil


Diksa-guru is Krsna Himself that manifested in this material world; a manifestation of Baladeva Prabhu or Nityananda Prabhu. There are many types of guru: diksa-guru, siksa-guru, vartma-pradarsaka-guru, mahanta-guru. Actually, mahanta-guru is Krsna Himself. As like Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, He is also acting the role of guru. 

Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krsna, but He is taking the mood of bhakta, bhakta-bhava, and as a bhakta, He is acting the role of guru; so Caitanya Mahaprabhu is also acting the role of mahanta-guru. And at the same time, Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krsna, so He resides in the heart of all the living entities; in the heart of the devotees. 

So, Caitanya Mahaprabhu is acting four roles: Krsna, devotee, caitya-guru and mahanta-guru.

The Paramatma, Supersoul, resides in the heart of all the living entities and His duty is just to witness; what the living entities are doing, He is just watching it. When the living entity’s sukrti is matured and accumulated and he has surrendered unto the lotus feet of guru, then caitya-guru who resides in the heart, Paramatma, gives us inspiration on how to develop our bhajana and sadhana. This is the process.

CAITANYA BHAGAVAT 2

January 11, 2017
Penha, Brasil

Audio here

gauranga-gunete jhure, nitya-lila tare sphure
(Gaurangera duti pada, 2)
One who is completely absorbed in the sweet pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Krsna-lila will automatically manifest in his heart, because Gaurasundara in non-different from Krsna. Krsna manifested in this Kali-yuga in the form of Sacinandana Gaurahari and took Srimati Radhika’s mood and complexion:
radhikara bhava kanti angikar kori
krsna avatirna hoila gauranga rupa dhari
“Antar krsna bahir gaura”, Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krsna on the inside, but externally He is Gaura. Gauranga-lila means separation mood (vipralambha-mayi-lila) and Krsna-lila is sambhoga-mayi-lila (meeting lila). Krsna’s many sweet pastimes are beyond our material conception; you cannot understand it. If you are not in a very high level, as like Sukadeva Gosvamipada, uttam-uttam maha-bhagavata, it is very difficult to understand some of Krsna’s confidential lilas. For example, Krsna steals the cloths of the gopis; He performs rasa-lila with them and He also do water-sporting and boat-sporting with the gopis and this is beyond the rules and regulations of the society. In this way, Krsna’s many confidential lilas, if you listen from Srimad-Bhagavatam, maybe your mind will be very disturbed, because it is very difficult to reconcile. But Gaura-lila, you may understand; Chaiyanya Mahaprabhu’s lila is very sweet. For this regard, our acaryas explain, if you absorb in Gaura-lila, then by the causeless mercy of Sacinandana Gaurahari, you may understand about Krsna-lila; all our acaryas explain that again and again you have to listen Gaura-lila.

SRI BRHAD-BHAGAVATAMRTAM - PART 1, 3RD CLASS

29 May 2015

Watch the class here


So continuing, I am discussing about Brhad-bhagavatamrtam, composed by Srila Sanatana Gosvamipad. Brhad-bhagavatamrtam is called the essence of Srimad Bhagavatam and here Srila Sanatana Gosvamipad explains two stories, one is the story of Narada Rsi and the other is the story of Gopa-kumar.

In the first part we discussed how Narada Rsi went to different places and he glorified the devotees. Narada Rsi first met with one brahmana in Prayaga, who used to worship his Thakurji Salagram-sila. Narada Rsi told him, “You are the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord”, and that brahmana told, “I am not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord, the king who lives in South India worships the Lord and engages all of his wealth and money in Thakura-seva, so he is the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord”. 

Then Narada Rsi went to South India and saw how the king served his Thakurji and then Narada Rsi  said, “You are the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord”, then the king told, “I am not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord, the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord is Indra, the king of the heavenly planets”.

Then Narada Rsi went to the heavenly planet and he also glorified Indra, who is the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord. Indra [being] very humble told, “I am not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord; Brahmaji is the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord”. Then Narada Rsi came in Brahma-loka and met Brahmaji, who told, “Actually I am not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord; Shiva is the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord (bhagavata-krpa-patra)”.

So continuing, I am giving classes about Brhad-bhagavatamrtam composed by Srila Sanatana Gosvamipad. There are two parts in Brhad-bhagavatamrtam: one is the story of Narada Rsi and the other, of Gopa-kumar. So we are discussing the first part of the book, the story of Narada Rsi and his enquiry of who is the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord (bhagavat-krpa-patra). For this regard he started [his search by] going to Prayaga, where the three holy rivers - Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati - merge together and he met with one old Brahmana who used to worship his Thakurji Salagrama-sila.

Then he also went to south India where there was a king living in his kingdom. That king also used to worship his Thakurji but the king told he was not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord, after that the king said, “If you want to see the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord, you should go to heaven (Svarga-loka) [to see] Indra”. So Narada Rsi arrived in Indra-loka which is called heaven or Svarga-loka and Indra also told that he is not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord. So then Narada Rsi went to Brahma-loka (Satya-loka) and Brahmaji also told that he is not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord. Then Narada came in the place of Shiva-loka, Shivaji also said he is not the best recipient of the mercy of the Lord and then he went to Suta-loka where Prahlada Maharaja is staying.

SRI BRHAD-BHAGAVATAMRTAM - PART 1, 2ND CLASS

19 May, 2015
Watch the class here

I have discussed the first part of Sri Sri Brhad Bhagavatamrtam composed by Srila Sanatana Gosvami, and I also explained that in the Brhad Bhagavatamrtam there are two parts, one part glorifies about the devotees of Lord, and that’s the history of Narada Rsi, and the other part glorifies the devotion (Bhakti), and that is Gopa Kumar katha.

I have also told in the previous class that Narada Rsi came in the very super excellent and auspicious place, Prayaga Tirtha, where three rivers meet together Ganga, Yamuna and Sarasvati, and at that time he saw one poor brahman that used to worship his Thakurji Salagram. Narada Rsi told him, “You are the best recipient of the mercy of Lord”, then the brahman told, “I’m not the recipient of the mercy of Lord; if you want to see the best recipient of the mercy of Lord you should go to south India, and you will see that there is a king which worships the Lord with all his wealth and money”, this is called royal seva (rajakiya seva). 

Then Narada Rsi arrived in south India where he saw the king and how he served his Thakurji with all of his wealth and money; this is called raja seva, royal service. Then the king told, “I’m not the best recipient of the mercy of Lord (bhagavat krpa patra), if you want to see the best recipient of the mercy of Lord, then you should go to heaven; Indra is the best recipient of the mercy of Lord”.
