Srila Giri Maharaja – “Interest in ‘new transcriptions.’”

Date: 3.3.19

Dear Sriman Hrday Krsna das,

Please accept my dandavat pranamas in remembrance of our Divine Masters.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding new transcriptions of Srila Sridhara Maharaja’s audio recordings.

You wrote:

“Soy discípulo de Govinda Maharaj, vivo en Caracas Venezuela Me interesan las nuevas transcripciones de Srila Guru Maharaj” (“I am a disciple of Govinda Maharaj, I live in Caracas Venezuela I am interested in the new transcriptions of Srila Guru Maharaj”)

I am not sure about which recordings you are referring to as you were not specific on that point.

All our transcriptions are posted here: https://scsmathglobal.com/ssm/ along with audio and video recordings.

This morning we received 58 “new” transcripts which I asked our webmaster to post as Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja – “In My Timeline: Happiness Video”

“Happiness” from TrulyMind’s Video

Jivana Pavana put the video above in my Facebook timeline along with this comment “Award Winning Animator’s Short Film ‘Happiness’ is Absolutely Brilliant”

My comment—

The animation “Happiness” from “TrulyMind’s Video” is not “Absolutely Brilliant”. It is foolish.

For a thing to be “Absolutely Brilliant” it must accurately and fully represent the “Absolute”, which this video does not.

In addition, the predicate must follow a subject. The subject is “Krishna” because He is the only thing that can give happiness. The animator introduces the predicate “is not here, not here, etc.” but without the subject (Krishna).

Happiness cannot be found simply by illustrating what it is not. That Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja – “Twelve Hours to “Censored!’.”

Introductory notes:

In an effort to remove a great deal of junk that had accumulated on our Facebook sites I recently “unjoined” all the Facebook groups to which I had been joined. To the best of my knowledge I did not intentionally join any of these groups. One of the groups I “unjoined” was this one: “Srila Prabhupada’s Disciples, My Godbrothers & Godsisters.” I knew little about it except that within the last month or so I had a short exchange with Sripada Mahadhyuti Maharaja and, along other observations, developed a general opinion that the group was very similar to many others I have mostly avoided due to their being long on hyperbole and speculation, short on substance and discrimination.

Before you make me out to be the Grinch Read More...

Please accept my humble dandavat pranamas in remembrance of our Divine Masters.

We have received your service donation and I am very happy and heartened to hear the news of your program at our ashram there in the United Kingdom.

Srila Giri Maharaja – “Politics, parties, work, devotion.”

Dear Sriman Jagadananda dasa,

I do have one quick question. Yesterday I noticed Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has announced that she will be going after the presidency in 2020. As I’m sure your Divine Grace is aware, she is a devotee. What are your thoughts on this?

I was not aware she is a devotee. Who is her guru?

I noted when we were preaching in South India, that whenever any gentleman who was a renowned devotee in a particular place approached our guru maharaja, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada, he used to ask such men, “Under whose guidance does your devotional service to Krsna go on?” Generally they used to say, “No, no, I am directly concerned with Lord Krsna, and Lord Rama.” Then, when they went Read More...
