Oh Giri Maharaj, I am suffering in such Hellish pain day in and out. I am in sheer terror, please pray that Krsna lets me leave my body!

My dandavats.

The material body is always giving us various pains and pleasures, sometimes great, sometimes small. These are temporary and we must try our best to tolerate them.

I cannot pray to Krishna to let you leave your body. That is like asking Krishna to let you commit suicide. Suicide is a sin because it is an attempt to deny Krishna control over our lives. Our bodies are not ours, they are His, to be used for His seva. During the course of our seva attempts there will be many obstacles; bodily pains and pleasures are two such obstacles. We must tolerate them with the knowledge that Krishna will decide what is best for us, whether Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “”As Their Hearts Melt, the Ocean of Mercy Expands …”

BKG St. Pete

Date: 5/13/16

Dear Sriman Jagadananda dasa,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes.

I pray all is well with you and the Math.

If you have time please let me know how you are and how everything at the math is.

By the grace of Sri Guru and Vaishnavas we are continuing our seva to Srila Gurudeva, as our capacity allows. During my life I have been very fortunate to have the association and confidence of faithful devotees who stand as examples of how to proceed along the path of Krishna Consciousness. I am most unworthy of such association and remain in constant awe that, despite my many shortcomings, I continue to be tolerated and accepted as their servant, friend and well-wisher. Standing so far distant from the ocean of causeless mercy of the Lord’s devotees, yet having been touched Read More...

Guru Maharaja: Chitragupta, he’s the record keeper of Yamaraja. What do you now want to say?

Devotee: Does he have some special connection with Paramatma? His recording system is so intricate he must have some connection with Paramatma.

Guru Maharaja: Some sort, because he must have eligibility of recording of reading all the movements in this mundane world. By the vibration, whatever is happening he can record it, his heart automatically, Read More...

Srila Sridhara Maharaja – “One day Achyutananda interviewed with me and asked some question about the Holy Name, Divine Name, and I replied; and he took notes and “Back to Godhead” sent an article that there is mention of Charaka, Charaka Rshi, the ancient doctor; the medicine of Charaka. His example I quoted there… His opinion about epedemic. He has written a book, that when, in the name of justice, the court pleaders, advocates, they are supposed to help the justice.

Srila Giri Maharaja “A Special Time”

Soquel Party

From: B.K. Giri
To: Ratan Krishna das
Date: 3/31/16

Dear Sriman Ratan Krishna dasa,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

It was very kind of you to write to me, expressing your appreciation for my humble attempts to serve Srila Gurudeva, his Mission, his devotees and those caught in the cycle of samsara.

Your visit with the other devotees you mentioned was very enlivening for me as well.

Whenever there appears an intensity to serve the Lord and His devotees, as we noticed among the devotees here at the time you mention, it must be accompanied by a very auspicious sphere of influence that affects all of those within it, or touched by it. Sankirtana, especially as it occurs through preaching the precepts of our Divine lineage, is the key to creating such an auspicious environment.

Great endeavors Read More...
