For your satisfaction we offer this link to an audio recording of Srila Govinda Maharaja’s talk on Sri Nityananda Prabhu’s Appearance Day from February 24, 1994.
nityanandam aham naumi sarvananda-karam param hari-nama-pradam devam avadhuta-shiromanim
“I bow down to the Supreme Lord Nityananda Prabhu, who is the awarder of the highest joy to all, the bestower of the holy name and the crest jewel of all paramahamsa mendicants.”
A phrase commonly heard from 2nd Amendment proponents/gun owners regarding the government taking their guns is “They’ll have to pry it from my cold dead hands.” It sounds good but the prying loose of guns from the hands has been going on for decades while the hands are still warm. As you know, in my opinion it will continue. So long as the guns are removed incrementally the government will get its way. In the end those who would resist to the point of death are few and far between, on the high side I would guess less than 5% of gun owners would fight to their… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “Dealing with the modern day Kamsas, Putanas, Kaliyas, etc.””

“She is my guru. Her devotional mood is worshipable by me.” — Srila Govinda Maharaja
Please accept my humble dandavat pranamas in remembrance of our Divine Masters.
I received both your recent emails with 62 new transcripts & quoted slokas.
I forwarded all to Sriman Gokulananda to post on our website.
Srila Sridhara Maharaja produced an amazing body of work in both quality and quantity.
Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura mentioned the theory that the Bhagavatam was the work of several “Vyasadevas” who each added to the text in succession rather than just one original Vyasa of 5,000 yrs. ago producing the entire work.
The new transcripts have been added to the 5/1/83-10/1/83 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... “62 New Transcripts for the Srila Sridhara Maharaja Media Archive!”
