Sri Bhagavat Saptah, 7th Day

Tonight is the last program in our Bhagavat-katha, we will be finished here. Actually Bhagavatam is ananta, unlimited, endless. 

We cannot finish. Nityam bhagavata sevaya.
śṛṇvatāṁ sva-kathāḥ kṛṣṇaḥ  
hṛdy antaḥ stho hy abhadrāṇi  
vidhunoti suhṛt satām 

naṣṭa-prāyeṣv abhadreṣu  
nityaṁ bhāgavata-sevayā 
bhagavaty uttama-śloke
bhaktir bhavati naiṣṭhikī
Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Personality of Godhead, who is the Paramātmā (Supersoul) in everyone’s heart and the benefactor of the truthful devotee, cleanses desire for material enjoyment from the heart of the devotee who has developed the urge to hear His messages, which are in themselves virtuous when properly heard and chanted. 

By regular attendance in classes on the Bhāgavatam and by rendering of service to the pure devotee, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving service unto the Personality of Godhead, who is praised with transcendental songs, is established as an irrevocable fact. (Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.2.17-18)

Gadadhara Pandit's Appearance Day 

Gadadhara Pandit is an incarnation of Srimati Radhika. In Krsna-lila, he is Srimati Radhika, and in Gaura-lila, She is acting the role of Gadadhara Pandit. And Gadadhara, he has so much love and affection with Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Even in Navadvip-lila, and also Jagannath Puri lila, He is always staying with Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Mahaprabhu’s lila is very sweet also. Krsna-lila, maybe some doubts will come, sometimes very difficult to reconcile by yourself. If you read Krsna-lila or listen Krsna-lila, sometimes you may be confused and very difficult to reconcile also. 

However in Gaura-lila, Mahaprabhu lila is very sweet because Krsna is Bhagavan. This is a fact. And He did not follow any rules and regulations, because He is Bhagavan, He is Supreme Personality of Godhead. Same Krsna has come in the form of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is acting the role as like bhakta, bhakta-rupa, bhakta-lila. That means, Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, He is showing to us how to chant holy names, how to do bhajan and sadhan. Everything step by step Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu had shown to us by His example. Brahmacari life, grhasta life, then sannyas life. 

Krsna-lila very difficult to understand. Especially Krsna in Vrndavan, if He is brahmacari, grhasta, vanaprastha or sannyasi, very difficult to understand. Krsna told to the gopis, “I am pukka brahmacari, pure brahmacari.” And Krsna has proven also. Understand?

Brhad-Bhagavatamrtam Class
Vilnius, Lithuania
May 26, 2016

So continuing the story of Brhad-Bhagavatamrtam, Gopa-kumara katha. Yesterday I told that Gopa kumara told his own life history, how he attained to Lord. Gopa-kumara told his life history to whom? Could you remember? To Mathura brahmana. He told: "Mathura brahamana" - just I remind to you - "I was born on the lap of Giriraja Govardhana, in the dynasty of Gopa (cowheard dynasty). Then, while I was herding the cows one day, I went on the banks of the Yamuna very close to Kesi Ghata and there I met with my Gurudeva, his name was Jayanta". Remember his guru's name: Jayanta.

"And that time my Gurudeva gave me the six-syllable Gopal mantra. But when Gurudeva gave me Gopal mantra, he fainted and I went to Yamuna to fetch some water for his eyes and mouth, but when I returned from Yamuna, that time Gurudeva had disappeared. And then I felt so much pang of separation from my guru and Gurudeva also did not explain how to chant this mantra and what is the meaning of this mantra. But I have faith in my guru so, for this regard, every day I chant this Gopal mantra."

Because guru is not ordinary things, yesterday I talked about guru-tattva. Guru is not ordinary thing. He is not as like puppet or toy. Innocent people don't know about guru-tattva, but you have to understand about guru-tattva. You have to understand what is guru.
