“… Ты никогда не потеряешь Мою компанию.” — Шрила Гири Махарадж 

BKG, Russian TrainEnglish Version HERE

27 августа 2014 Свами B.K. Гири

Моя дорогая духовная дочь,

Пожалуйста, примйми мои благословения и добрые пожелания в память о моих Божественных Учителях.
Я беспокоюсь, потому что вы сейчас говорите очень редко со мной и когда вы это делаете, то очень коротко.  
 
Это мой страх, что вы стали забывать меня! 

Кришна является жестоким мастером. В связи с этим, Махапрабху чувствовал себя заброшенным Им и показал крайнюю степень чувства разлуки с Кришной. Это должно показать нам, как даже лучшие из слуг Кришны могут чувствуют себя покинутыми своим Учителем. Шри Чайтанья Дева

Dear Ratnanabha Prabhu,

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

I have studied your email carefully and, while I think I know what you want, it is not so clear.

I did not want to keep you waiting any longer for a response, however, so I will tell you what little I know from memory and what I can ascertain through some research.

Srila Sridhar Maharaj told us there are, I believe, 5 tattvas that are very difficult to understand. I don’t recall… Read More...

Sri Radha: “in charge of the domestic affairs of Krishna.”

Mala-5-.2K_8287Русская версия ЗДЕСЬ

Many years ago I was present when Srila Sridhara Maharaja was speaking with a small group of devotees about a high topic in which we were all keenly interested. One of his disciples interrupted. He needed a few rupees to pay a ricksha walla who had delivered something to the Math. Srila Sridhara Maharaja told the devotee to bring his money belt. Srila Sridhara Maharaja carefully and very deliberately examined the various rupee notes, extracted the exact amount needed, seven or so ( about twenty cents for us), and handed them over to his disciple. He then carefully put the money… Read More...

“… you will never lose My company.” — Srila Giri Maharaja

My dear spiritual daughter,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes in remembrance of my Divine Masters.

I am worried, because you now speak very rarely with me and when you do, only shortly.

It is my fear thet you have become forgetful of me!

Krishna is a cruel master. Because of this, Sriman Mahaprabhu felt neglected by Him and showed the extreme degree of feeling of separation from Krishna. This was to show us how even the best of Krishna’s servants may feel neglected by their Master. Sri Chaitanya Deva also showed us the extreme degree of devotion of Krishna’s

Dear Sriman Jayanta Krishna dasa.

Please accept my humble obeisances in remembrance of our Divine Masters.

I was hoping you might explain why you are promoting the teachings of the mayavadi, Sri Mahaswamigal, and disappointed that I did not find any satisfactory explanation in your comments.

In an obscure way you are saying it is my fault you took to this practice because, I was not offering good advise lately or not practicing what I preach. Therefore, you wrote to me “Maybe that’s why people feel the need to go and listen somewhere else.”

No, prabhu, that is not the reason.

You regularly … Read More...

My dandavats,

I was trying to figure out who this man is that occupies so much space on Prabhu Jayanta Krishna’s Facebook wall.

When I did, I was surprised to see how popular this man is:
