Sri Bhagavat Saptah, 4th Day
2nd May, 2015

Maharaj Pariksit asked, “Gurudev, always you tell, Lord Vishnu is equal to all the living entities but we see He killed all the demons and He took the side of the devatas, demigods. So, my doubt has come. How to prove that the Lord is equal to all the living entities ?”

Sukadev Gosvamipad: “Hey! Maharaj Pariksit, listen. Actually, The Lord is equal to all living entities. Samah sarve su bhute su……, I am equal to all living entities. No one is my enemy and no one is My friend. However, the Lord has one nature, sarva dharman, one who takes shelter of His lotus feet He gives protection.”
brahma-bhūtaḥ prasannātmā
na śocati na kāṅkṣati
samaḥ sarveṣu bhūteṣu
mad-bhaktiṁ labhate parām
One who is thus transcendentally situated at once realizes the Supreme Brahman. He never laments nor desires to have anything; he is equally disposed to every living entity. In that state he attains pure devotional service unto Me.
(Srimad Bhagavad-Gita 18.54)

Vraja Mandal Parikrama
Srila Rupa Gosvami Disappearance Day

Today is a super excellent, very auspicious day because it is the tirobhav tithi of Srila Rupa Gosvamipad, his disappearance day. Every year, Gurudev also used to glorify every night about Sri Rupa Gosvamipad.

Who will give mercy to us? Rupa Gosvamipad or Rupa Manjari? Actually, Rupa Gosvami will give us mercy. (verse).

There are two forms, sadhaka-rupa and siddha-rupa. As sadhaka, He was Rupa Gosvamipad, the eternal associated of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. And in his transcendental form He is the eternal associated of the Divine Couple Sri Sri Radha Krsna, Rupa Manjari.

In Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s lila, He is Rupa Gosvamipad and Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself glorifies Sri Rupa Gosvami also. When Caitanya Mahaprabhu met with Rupa Gosvamipad, Mahaprabhu gave him all the treasures of His heart.

Mahaprabhu Himself told to all His devotees. I gave all My mercy to Rupa and He can describe everything. And also when Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was dancing in front the chariot of Lord Jagannath, Mahaprabhu was thinking ‘I am Radha and now I am meeting My beloved Krsna’. (verse)

Q: You say to us to love who loves our Gurudev, but how to love who loves our guru?

A: As like [My] Gurudev: he loves Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaj, so all the disciples of Bhativedanta Svami Maharaj loves Gurudev. This is a simple way. Because everybody saw how he [Svami Maharaj] loves My Guru. This is the process: who loves my guru I love this person. And who has the same mood of my guru I am also with this person.

Why most of Svami Maharaj’s disciples came to Gurudev? Because they noticed this. How [My] Srila Gurudev gave so much love and affection and Svami Maharajin the same way, gave him so much love and affection too. Svami Maharaj in his last moment hold Gurudev’s hands: “oh, you have to take care of my disciples. And you have to give me samadhi…” It is all recorded in video. So, this is the thing.

And the same things Svami Maharaj told, [My] Gurudev also told, the same. What is written in the books of Svami Maharaj and in his commentaries, if you read carefully you will understand this. Everything is in there.

This is [what means] to have the same mood. This is the process.


Sri Rupa Sanatan Gaudiya Matha
Vrndavana, India

Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Svayam Bhagavan. For this regard, He is called the Supreme Enjoyer. All the living entities are called “enjoyed”. Other words [for this] are visay and asray. Visay means the object of divine love and asray is the shelter of the divine love. Srimati Radhika is called asray-vigraha, the shelter of divine love, asray-vigraha-srimati-radhika. Krsna is called visay-vigraha, the object of divine love. So Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupad explained that the aim and object of all gaudiya-vaisnavas is to serve Krsna, the visay-vigraha, object of the divine love, under the guidance of asray-vigraha-srimati-radhika.
Because without the guidance of Srimati Radhika we can’t attain Krsna. Srimati Radhika completely and absolutely controls Krsna with Her divine love. This is the process.
nirantaram vasi-krta-pratiti-nanda-nandane
kada karisyasiha mam krpa-kataksa-bhajanam?
(Sri Radha-krpa-kataksa-stava-raja, verse 3)
…Krpa katasha very clearly explains that Srimati Radhika feels and controls Krsna with Her divine love. If you serve Krsna, you have to take shelter in the lotus feet of Srimati Radhika. Without taking shelter in Srimati Radhika, no one can attain Krsna. According to the tattva-darsan (philosophy), Krsna is called aradhyo-bhagavan. Visvanath Cakravartipad very clearly explains:
aradhyo bhagavan vrajesa-tanayas tad-dhama vrndavanam
ramya kacid upasana vraja-vadhu-vargena ya kalpita
srimad-bhagavatam pramanam amalam prema pumartho mahan
sri-caitanya-mahaprabhor matam idam tatradaro nah parah
