How wonderful is the influence of inevitable time

After the Battle of Kurukṣetra, Śrī Bhīṣmadeva described to King Yudhiṣṭhira his wonder at this:

yatra dharma-suto rājā
gadā-pāṇir vṛkodaraḥ
kṛṣṇo ’strī gāṇḍivaṁ cāpaṁ
suhṛt kṛṣṇas tato vipat

na hy asya karhicid rājan
pumān vetti vidhitsitam
yad-vijijñāsayā yuktā
muhyanti kavayo ’pi hi

“Oh, how wonderful is the influence of inevitable time! It is irreversible — otherwise, how can there be reverses in the presence of King Yudhiṣṭhira, the son of the demigod controlling religion; Bhīma, the great fighter with a club; the great bowman Arjuna with his mighty weapon Gāṇḍīva; and above all, the Lord, the direct well-wisher of the Pāṇḍavas? O King, no one can know the plan of the Lord [Śrī Kṛṣṇa]. Even though great philosophers inquire exhaustively, they are bewildered.” (Bhāg. 1.9.15-16)

Truth is above all

Truth is above all. And that should be ideal of our life, the beck and call, only truth. We should try to live the life of a surrendered soul with our eyes fixed on the goal that is truth. We shall live a life for the truth, and not for any amount of pleasure and comfort which may be proposed from this plane…We must trample down under our feet all the prospects proposed by this mundane world. The truth is the truth and we must aspire to be subservient to the truth and to the high ideal.

Srila B.R.Sridhar Dev Goswami

Lord Varaha Dev

All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga
Once long ago there lived a demon named Hiranyaksa. He was the younger brother of Hiranyakasipu and he caused the earth to fall more and more in the water at the bottom of the universe. Lord Brahma who created the universe felt helpless, he didn’t know what to do! Finally he went to Lord Vishnu and took shelter of Him. While lord Brahma was still meditating a tiny boar appeared out of his nostril. He was as small as the tip of his nose. The little boar grew and grew until He filled up the entire universe with His giant body. He roared and roared tremendously. All the demigods and saints were very terrified and very astonished.

Lord Nityananda distributed Lord Gauranga’s name


Day and night Lord Caitanya was intoxicated with the intense desire to taste the sweetness of Sri Radhika’s divine love for Sri Krsna. Sriman Mahaprabhu instructed Lord Nityananda and His associates to go out and profusely distribute the holy names of Lord Krsna. However, Lord Nityananda instead plentifully distributed Lord Gauranga’s name, the most precious fortune available to the living entities, with no impediment at all. Let us eternally worship that great personality Sri Nityanandacandra, who freely grants the association of Sri Gaurangadeva, who is none other than Lord Krsna.

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada
