Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.31 – Thu, 05 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.31 – Everything in this world should be considered a product of the Lord’s energy, and therefore should be employed in the service of the Lord. This energy can be utilized for real self-interest if one is compassionate. Sannyāsīs show their compassion by traveling, preaching and awarding fearlessness. Householders do their part by holding classes at their home and by supporting sannyāsīs.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.28 – Tue, 03 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.28 – Only by God’s grace can one get a nice wife just as he desires. Similarly, it is only by God’s grace that a girl gets a husband suitable to her heart. Thus it is said that if we pray to the Supreme Lord in every transaction of our material existence, everything will be done very nicely and just suitable to our heart’s desire.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.26 & 27 – Mon, 02 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.26 & 27 – The duty of the parents is to find a suitable boy for their daughter to get married. The primary qualification of the boy is that he must be devoted to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Additionally the horoscope of boy and girl is also checked for compatibility. Girls were never allowed to choose their own husband for various reasons.

Lila Kirtan – Nimai Pandit teaching Sanskrit grammar

Lila Kirtan – After getting initiation from Sripad Madhavendra Puri Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu continued to teach Sanskrit grammar to His students. He taught different aspects of grammar in a devotional way by connecting them to Lord Sri Krishna.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.25 – Sat, 30 Apr 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.21.25 – The great Svāyambhuva Manu ruled the earth seated on Brahmavrata. He is elevated in every respect in the opulences of religious performances, ruling power, cleanliness and all other good qualities. Thats why he is called as Maṅgala. Brahmavrata is sometimes considered a part of Kurukṣetra or that Kurukṣetra itself is situated in Brahmāvarta. The specialty of Kuruksetra is that Bhagavad Gita was spoken there and the first Ratha Yatra started there. Lord Krishna is great in many ways but He is bound by the love of Vrajavasis.
