Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.27 – Mon 14 April 2014

Srimad Bhagavatam can be legitimately discussed only among the devotees of the Lord. Foolish interpreters unnecessarily tackle the Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam when they have no access to the subject matter and they misrepresent the transcendental knowledge and thus spoil one’s valuable time.

Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.25 – Sat 12 April 2014

The four defects: He must commit mistake, he must be illusioned, and he must cheat, and his senses are imperfect. But materialist are very puffed up and proud even with these defects. One should not be puffed up with this false knowledge and this little degree that one has received from the university.

Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.23 – Thu 10 April 2014

There are many people who, in spite of reading the unauthorised Bhagavad-gītā, misunderstand Kṛṣṇa because of imperfect knowledge and refusing association of devotees and conclude Him to be an ordinary historical personality. Unless understood through authoritative sources, Kṛṣṇa is misunderstood.

Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.22 – Wed 09 April 2014

The living entities are manifested of Kṛṣṇa’s energy and are divided into two classes, eternally conditioned and eternally liberated. Such living entities are innumerable, and they are considered fundamental parts of Kṛṣṇa. In his eternal conditioned existence the jīva is full of the desire to enjoy matter, while in his eternal liberated state he is full of the desire to render devotional service to the Lord.

Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.21 – Tue 08 April 2014

One can ply over the ocean of material existence by the grace of the Lord very easily, without any fear of storm or fog. It all depends on the will of the Lord; no one can help if there is some unfortunate danger in the state of conditional life. Simply by being attached to hearing and chanting Krishna’s glories, one can attain the highest perfectional stage of entering into spiritual world.

I guarantee it!

Deena Bandhu Prabhu recalls: Srila Prabhupada gave a lecture on his big vyasasana in Los Angeles and at the end he declared, “So… if you would just follow those 4 regulative principles… and chant 16 rounds… then you will go back to home, back to Godhead; I guarantee it!” Srila Prabhupada sort of posed and […]

Come down and write those books

Bhavananda Dasa recalls: Srila Prabhupada said, “I have so many palaces all over the world that I can stay in!  Practically speaking, there is no difference between me and the Goswamis, in terms of our lifestyle. They stayed under a different tree every night; I stay in a different palace every night. They wrote; I […]

mercy

He was such a mercy giver!

Yogesvara Dasa continues: Srila Prabhupada was such a mercy-giver! He never asked us to fill any questionnaires. He never asked your history, what’s your background. What have you done good? What have you done bad? There was never any such auditioning for becoming his disciple. Srila Prabhupada said, “Whatever you have done before that’s behind […]

disdain

Don’t try to find some formula for causeless mercy!

Yogesvara Dasa remembers: It was not a morning walk; it was a morning sit at Bhaktivedanta Manor. Sometimes we would sit around in a circle and chant japa. Sometimes we would ask Srila Prabhupada questions or sometimes he would ask us something. So one morning I asked: “Srila Prabhupada, there are two people…equally unqualified for […]

Bhurijana Prabhu’s Vyasa Puja

Yesterday we had a very sweet celebration of Bhurijana Prabhu’s Vyasa Puja. It was utterly inspiring to hear all the heartfelt homages of the devotees glorifying the numerous qualities of Bhurijana Prabhu. Indeed we are reminded on such occasions how fortunate we are to have such elevated personalities amongst our midst. It strengthens our faith […]

‘What is there in Krishna’s eye?’

Deena Bandhu Prabhu recalls: One time in Los Angeles, Srila Prabhupada came from the back door; he paid his obeisances to the Deities then he sat on the vyasasana. As soon as he sat he cocked his head slightly and asked, ‘What is there in Krishna’s eye?’ We only had little Deities at the time. […]

disdain

I was being more attracted to that than to Srila Prabhupada

Bhavananda Prabhu recalls: They used to pick 2 or 3 devotees in Los Angeles who could walk behind Srila Prabhupada during his morning walk. Usually not very much was said. However he did do one thing when I went along one day. This was the first time when he had this little house in Beverly […]

association

We’ll stop chanting without association!

Yogesvara Dasa recounts: In my very first letter, which was my initiation letter in 1970 in London, Srila Prabhupada acknowledged in my letter to him an appreciation for my senior godbrothers and senior godsisters. He said, “This is Vaisnava!”, in his reply to me. “This is very good that you understand the importance of taking […]

You can design a disco and go to hell

Bhavananda Prabhu recalls: When Srila Prabhupada came back to Los Angeles in 1970, I was appointed to design and decorate the temple’s altar. Suddenly Srila Prabhupada appeared while we were at work and asked me, “Oh very nice. You have done this?” I replied, “Yes Srila Prabhupada.” Srila Prabhupada exclaimed, “You see the difference: you […]

Harinama on Hollywood Boulevard

Deena Bandhu Prabhu relates: I remember we were doing harinama at ‘Diamond Jims’ in Hollywood Boulevard. Visnujana was there chanting the Hollywood melody. And suddenly his eyes just got big and he said: PRABHUPADA! And he hit the ground and we all turned around and there was Srila Prabhupada in this little Ford Pinto, a […]
