CAITANYA BHAGAVAT 1


Penha, Brasil
10 January, 2017
Listen/Download here



I want to speak about Caitanya Bhagavat, the glorification about Lord Nityananda and Caitanya Mahaprabhu. 

Vrindavan Das Thakur, in Caitanya Bhagavat, very nicely glorifies Lord  Nityananda Prabhu. Who is Nityananda? In Krsna-lila, He is Baladeva Prabhu and now He has come in Gaura-lila in the form of Nityananda Prabhu. Baladeva means, who gives all kinds of transcendental strength, power, in our heart (cit-bal). 

Bala-hinena labhhyah, the Smriti sastra explains in this sanskrit verse, bala-hine na labhyah, who has no strength (power) cannot do anything. If you have no strength or power in your legs, then you cannot walk. If you have no power in your eyes, you cannot see. Bal means sakti, power, potency. In the same way, for you to practice the spiritual things, you need cit-bal, transcendental power, transcendental strength.

Srimad Bhagavat-katha

Penha/SC, Brasil
09 January, 2017


Last year, we did here the Bhagavat-saptah, seven days of bhagavat-katha. But this time it will be shorter, only four days of hari-katha. 

Actually, what’s the essence of Srimad Bhagavat-katha? How the ordinary conditional soul becomes free from maya and how to attain the highest divine love for Radha and Krsna. Especially in this kali-yuga, there is only one process to attain the highest divine love and the abode of Lord and that’s called nama-sankirtan. The scriptures explain that in this kali-yuga, there is no other way than the chanting of the holy names, not with karma, jñana, tapasya. The easiest way to attain the highest prem, divine love of Radha and Krsna, is the chanting of the holy names of Lord.

SRI BRHAD-BHAGAVATAMRTAM - PART 2, 5TH CLASS

Holland
November 27, 2016
Watch the class here


So, couple of months before I discussed about Brhad-Bhagavatamrtam, composed by Srila Sanatan Gosvamipad and I talked about the history of Gopa-kumar. 

Gopa-kumar told his own realization about bhajan and sadhan in front of his disciple, Mathura brahmana. When he chanted gopal-mantra, which he received from his guru Jayanta, then he proceeded from Vrindavan to Triveni, where the three rivers are meeting together (Ganga, Yamuna and Sarasvati) and he saw the brahman who worshiped salagram-sila and that brahman glorified about Lord. According to the instruction of the brahman, Gopa-kumar arrived in the South India temple, where he worshiped the thakurji. Then he came to Jaganath Puri, became the king there and worshiped Lord Jaganath very nicely. We also discussed these things, how gopal-mantra fulfilled all his desires.

Then he proceeded to Svargaloka (heavenly planet). Gopa-kumar heard the glories of Lord, who manifested in heavenly planet, that is called Upendra, and the demigods and demigoddess, how they worshiped to Him. So Gopa-kumar, by the chanting of his gopal-mantra, arrived in the heavenly planet and he saw how beautiful is there. 

In heavenly planet, Nandankanan, a very nice beautiful forest, many kinds of flowers are blossoming, sweet fragrance coming and there is also tira-basanta, that means the spring season is always going on, everybody’s heart is overjoyed and also amrta-bhojan, those who are the residents of heaven drink the sweet nectar. In heavenly planet no one become old and there are not any kind of diseases; they are all absorbed with their own sense gratifications. He saw theses things, how people were always absorbed with their sense gratifications. So, Gopa-kumar noticed these things, but by the causeless mercy of Lord, he came in the assembly house of devatas, deva-samad
