DIKSA, THE TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE

14/07/2017

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.
