CAITANYA BHAGAVAT 1

Penha, Brasil
January 10, 2017



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, Brazil
09/01/2017



What is the essence of Srimad Bhagavat-katha? How the ordinary conditioned 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, jnana, tapasya. The easiest way to attain the highest prema, divine love of Radha and Krsna, is the chanting of the holy names of Lord. 

But in this Kali-yuga, maya, the external illusory potency of Lord, is very powerful. No one can conquer her. Krsna says this to Arjun in the Bhagavad-gita. But only one process can conquer maya: [the one in which] one person absolutely and completely surrenders [itself] unto My lotus feet.
