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


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
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.””

Srila Giri Maharaja – “Generally the cover-up is seen as being worse than the crime”

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?

Please accept my humble dandavat pranamas to each of you.

Who is “the ācārya of the present Gauḍīya-sampradāya.”?

I read something this morning that was very interesting, funny and provided a look “behind the scenes” as Srila Prabhupada discussed with his disciples how to deal with his Godbrother Sripada Tirtha Maharaja. Other Godbrothers were also mentioned, including Srila Sridhara Maharaja, in passing.

I pray this finds each of you in good health and spirits.

Dear B.K. Giri Maharaja,

Please accept humble obeisances.

I would like to apologise for my unthoughtful request, and thank you for your well-aimed response, giving me pause to reflect hopefully more deeply than before.

With gratitude,

Dear Sriman Tom,

To reply in the same coin as “your well-aimed response”, I thank you for your carefully calibrated one. Unfortunately, in my experience, most persons would have taken offense to my reply and run away rather than look deeper to find the validity in it. I am happy to see your… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “Confidential Knowledge” continued.”

Dear Sripada B.K. Giri Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I am writing to you with the hope that you may be able to help me find a particular commentary on the Bhagavad-Gita by your Gurudeva, BR Sridhara Maharaja, in which he describes the escalation of confidentiality shown by the word guhyam, which culminates in verse 18.66 with sarva-guhyatamam.

While I seem to remember him presenting this development by examining how guhyam was used in three different instances, I’m unable to remember in which of his books I read this, and cannot easily go through… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “Confidential Knowledge””

63 New Srila Sridhar Maharaja Transcripts Added!

We have added 63 new transcripts to the Srila Sridhar Maharaja Media Archive!

The new transcripts have been added to the 11/1/83-12/31/83 section.

Many thanks to Prabhu Paramananda for all his hard work on these transcripts.

We pray for the blessings of the vaishnavas to help us, as we find ourselves unable to keep up with the prolific output of Sriman Paramananda dasa, whose steadfastness in transcribing the recordings of Srila Sridhara Maharaja has yielded a tremendous body of work available to all those anxious to serve, absorb, utilize, taste and distribute the exquisite siddhanta of His… Read More... “63 New Srila Sridhar Maharaja Transcripts Added!”

Srila Giri Maharaja – “I welcome brutal honesty”

My dandavats to you Sriman Uddharan dasa.

To be brutally honest, Lilavati Devi and I think the article by Jagadananda Prabhu is a difficult read even with your corrections.

As Lilavati said “it is not succinct enough and doesn’t flow.”

A little “bombastic” I would add.

Then, following the line of being “brutally honest”, I don’t see how you could have written this to me just three days before (4/14/20), which pertained to the same article:

A few typos corrected otherwise okay.

Please explain how there could be such a vast disparity in your opinion.

Also, I had written to you:
