Thanks for your answer, help and information.

Respectfully I have to say that Srila Gurudeva didn´t named six acharyas to succeed him, He named six Acharyas to cooperate and Help Nirmal Acharya M. , For me is very clear the administrative issues stated by Gurudev Govinda Maharaja on His “Last Will”, related to the Trust and their members, on Govinda´s Maharaja own words: “They have to help and cooperate with Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “The Mystery of Transcendental Form… “

To: Gokulananda das

From: Srila BK Giri

Date: 1/13/15

Dear Sriman Gokulananda,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I read the wonderful report of your work with our website with great pleasure and pride.

Sometimes the Deity of Lord Jagannatha in Puri is hidden from public view and given some “nourishment” by touching up or repainting his features. When His devotees see Him again they are very happy. He, in turn, also becomes very happy.

It is a little difficult for me to describe a digital website as a Deity, a Deity must have form. The server housing the website has form, but it is not the form of the website itself. The Bhagavatam is a similar thing. It is worshiped as a Diety, but what is its actual form? It is a compendium of transcendental words and images, most of which were Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “A Study of Naradhamaologists, Asuraologists, and other Scientists”

Dear Sriman Vrndavan,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I am still struggling to find the time to reply to your last email regarding various means of acquiring knowledge.

From our talks in Odessa I got the impression that you have a good grasp of these subjects yourself. I think you have the capacity to provide satisfactory answers to most of the questions that arise on these topics.

In the final analysis, perfect knowledge can only be gained from a perfect man of knowledge by a perfect student in pursuit of perfect answers. That is the only viable process and it is one that ultimately entirely excludes the material senses, including the mind and intellect, as means by which to acquire perfect knowledge, of anything; be it material or spiritual.

All these subjects can be explained, Read More...

Dear devotees and friends: We humbly invite you to participate along with devotees of our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, New Jersey and our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math Global Center UK, in the grand appearance day celebrations of Sri Nityananda Prabhu.

The festivals include kirtan, discourses and other auspicious activities. Please RSVP via our contact page.

Srila Giri Maharaja “Srila Prabhupada’s Stance: Vedic Authority Above Empiricism”

bkgvyasa

Date: 1/16/15

Dear Sriman Vrndavan,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

You Wrote: “I will be grateful to you if you could dispel some doubts that local devotees have in comments by your Gurudev (Swami Maharaj) where he says that the diameter of the moon is bigger than that of the sun.”

The first thing to know is that Srila Prabhupada has perfect faith in the authority of our scriptures. If anyone says “Swami Maharaja said… “, one thing or another, it is a challenge to his own position, which is this, “I am simply repeating what Krishna says.” Then, if Krishna, Vyasa, Shukadeva, Mahaprabhu, the goswamis, etc. said something and Srila Prabhupada is repeating it, the real challenge is not to Srila Prabhupada, but to the Vedic authority and disciplic succession he Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “…a Siksha Guru Parampara, Not an Acharya Board Parampara”

From: Srila Giri Maharaja
To: Ranganatha dasa

Date: 1/6/15

Dear Sriman Ranganatha dasa,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I don’t know if I can answer each of your questions to your satisfaction. Please be assured, however, that Sri Sri Guru and Krishna, residing within our hearts as caitya guru and as Paramatma are eternally with us and always ready to offer all help to the sincere seeker:

brahmanda bhramite kona bhagyavan jiva
gurukrsnaprasade paya bhaktilatabija
(C.c. Madhya 19.151)

By the grace of Sri Krishna one gets the guidance of Sri Guru. And, by the grace of Sri Guru, one receives direction from Sri Krishna.

Sri Krishna is our dearest friend:

suhrdam sarva-bhutanam
jnatva mam santim rcchati

and promises that all those who serve Him exclusively will attain peace and relief from Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja: “Setting the Terms for the Discussion”

To: Vrajanath das
From: Srila B.K. Giri
Date: 12/30/14

Dear Sriman Vrajanath Das,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

Thank you for your reply.* At least I can see you have read Srila Gurudeva’s Last Will and Testament (“LWT”). Most of those discussing this topic seem to rely more on conjecture than Srila Gurudeva’s actual words as expressed in his Will.

While we may of necessity go outside Srila Gurudeva’s Will in order to understand it properly, for example to understand the definition of acharya, which is not defined in the Will; will you agree with me that we should accept and follow his Last Will and Testament as the single most important instrument he left us to guide our activities immediately upon his disappearance and thereafter, especially as it pertains to the acharyas Read More...
