Srila Giri Maharaja – “You should find such a guru . . . “

Date: 9/30/20

Dear Sriman D______,

On the 21st. of this month I sent you an email in response to your email to me dated the 19th. In my email to you I attached the email you requested from Bhakti Sudhira Goswami to me (Subject: An overdue apology). There were other points you raised which I also believe are deserving of attention but I could not do so and reply to you fully in the time at hand. Thus, the email I sent you on the 21st. was only a small section of a much longer treatment I hope to complete regarding the issues you brought up. Due to time constraints I will have to serialize my response in order to offer… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “You should find such a guru . . . “”

Dandavats dear Sripad BK Giri Maharaj –

Thanks so much for sending these books along – really appreciate it and how exciting! 😃

And I would love to see more publications in español… oh wait, was there supposed to be a Spanish book in here bc I don’t see one. All good!

Love the “old school” home comforts.… Read More... “Book distribution: “how exciting! 😃””

Srila Giri Maharaja – Why don’t you learn to speak Russian, Spanish… ?

Why don’t you learn to speak Russian, Spanish… ?

Many times while preaching in countries, where these are the local languages, I have been asked why I don’t learn to speak Russian, Spanish, etc. The requests were made due to affection in the hope of bringing our talks to a more friendly and intimate level. I generally appealed to the common sense point that there are many different countries, many with their own language, and it was not practical for me to learn the language of every country where I desired to preach. Sometimes, after much insistance by devotees that I learn their local language,… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – Why don’t you learn to speak Russian, Spanish… ?”

Srila Giri Maharaja – “What is consciousness?”

All gloríes to Guru and Gauranga

I am one of the Devotees of our Grace Govinda Maharaja, I currently am living in a small town in Iowa getting ready for college, and Guru Maharaja gave me my Spiritual name. I’m about to turn 42, because of my schizophrenia I had a misconception that consciousness had something to do with telepathy. The reason I’m asking you is basically you are one of the Acharyas, and a good one. I have seen you in videos and heard some podcasts. I really feel safe in my decision to take shelter of our Grace Acharya Maharaja and your holy… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “What is consciousness?””

Srila Giri Maharaja – “It will go away, like things go away.”

Dandavats.

I just heard this from Pres. Trump, speaking about the Wuhan virus: “It will go away, like things go away.”

Exactly! That was one of the wisest things I’ve heard anyone say to this point.

When will the rest of the world wake up to this fact:

mātrā-sparśās tu kaunteya
śītoṣṇa-sukha-duḥkha-dāḥ
āgamāpāyino ’nityās
tāṁs titikṣasva bhārata

O son of Kuntī, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata,… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “It will go away, like things go away.””

Dandavats Sripada Giri Maharaja,

Now I am not so sure about posting “Who is the ācārya of the present Gauḍīya-sampradāya.”?

The references to Srila Sridhara Maharaja may be misunderstood by those with a poor understanding of Srila Prabhupada’s transcendental relationship with Srila Sridhara Maharaja.

Maybe, I could omit the references?
