“You reside at Sri Gaura Dham, the abode of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu, who is the only path for those who want to take shelter in Sri Vraja Dham. By the exclusive conclusions of the pure devotional scriptures, you put an end to all bad associations, removing all misery and pain. You are attached to Srila Rupa Goswami, subservient to Srila Sanatana Goswami, and emanate the luster of Srila Jiva Goswami. All glory to you, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, the master and protector of all Gaudiya Vaishnavs.”

“You have manifested Sri Chaitanya Math in the land of Gauda, on the bank of the Ganges, in Mayapur that stands in Nabadwip, non-different from Sri Vraja. Renowned among great Gaudiya Vaisnava teachers as Sri Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, you have appeared like a radiant sun rising in the morning sky and you are worshippable to all followers of Sri Rupa Goswami.”

naihati-nikate ‘jhamatapura’ name grama
tanha svapne dekha dila nityananda-rama

Near the town of Naihati, in the village of Jhamatapur, Lord Nityananda Rama appeared to me in a dream.

dandavat haiya ami padinu payete
nija-pada-padma prabhu dila mora mathe

I fell at His feet, offering my obeisances, and He then placed His own lotus feet upon my head.

‘utha’, ‘utha’ bali’ more bale bara bara
uthi’ tanra rupa dekhi’ hainu chamatkara

“Arise! Arise!” He told me again and again. Upon rising, I was astonished to see the beauty of His divine form.

My master, Prabhupad Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, established the religion of the age, Krishna-sankirtan, and is the chief minister of the universal assembly of leading Vaisnavas. His lotus feet are worshipped by millions of virtuous souls and fulfill the desires of those who dispel souls’ fears. Eternally I offer my obeisance to my master’s worshippable feet.

What Gaudiya Sampradaya doing?

The Shastra says, of all things the human body is the dearest to God; the human body is the giver of the ‘Paramartha’ ‘highest good’ and is very difficult to obtain; and therefore, while this body lasts, without being immersed in any other thing, not being deceived by supposing that any other method except sorrow-stupor-fear-killing ‘Bhakti’ is productive of good, it is our duty unceasingly to practice devotion.

Other form of devotion to God is weak, the devotion denoted by kirtan is strong. Once the protection of the strong ‘Bhakti’ is secured it gives to jivas the highest good with little effort on their part. Therefore, by preaching kirtan at all times to induce, by right of the highest kinship, the whole of the jiva to turn Homeward is true universal love, true help of others, true kindness and the true duty of life.

The Gaudiya Math embracing all without exception the inhabitants of the universe, in sadness calling upon all to turn their face towards God to be preachers of this Bhakti denoted by kirtan, says,—

 

he sadhavah sakalam eva vihaya durat /
chaitanya-chandra-charane kurutanuragam //
–Chaitanya-candramritam, 90

“Yes, the righteous, bidding good-bye to everything from a distance, offer the devotion of your hearts to the feet of Chaitanyachandra.”

About Sri Nityananda Prabhu

About Sri Nityananda Prabhu

Srila BR Sridhar Dev Goswami

O Nityananda Prabhu, emperor amidst the personal associates of Sriman Mahaprabhu! Kindly grant this fallen soul deep and resolute faith in that pure and divine figure of Sri Gauranga. Lord Gauranga’s personality exclusively embodies the sweet nectar relished deep within the devotional mellows of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna’s pastimes. But if Your lotus feet are overlooked, then all so-called devotional
orations and prayers meant for the highest worship become false, like a dream. I worship You, that great personality Nityanandacandra, who openly bestows shelter to the most fallen souls, freely granting the association of Sri Gaurangadeva

(From Sri Nityananda Dvadasakam sloka -12)

Vaisnava is Higher than sastra

Divine Words of His Divine Grace Srila B.R.Sridhar Dev Goswami

Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Maharaj

Practically, we should come in connection with the service of a Vaisnava. But where, whom to serve? I can’t come directly in connection with Him. Who can I serve? The Deity form of the Lord, the vigraha is there, the sastra is there—but in a sense these are superficial. The real substance we find in a Vaisnava, in his heart. Dharmasya tattvam nihitam guhayam. The Krsna conception, Krsna as He is, knowledge and love, we find living in the heart of a Vaisnava who directs all activities towards Him, towards His service.

What is Krishna consciousness?

Divine Words of Srila Sri Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev Goswami

Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Maharaj

What is Krishna consciousness?
Krishna consciousness means real love and beauty. Real love and beauty must predominate; not selfishness or exploitation. Generally, whenever we see beauty, we think that beauty is to be exploited, but actually, beauty is the exploiter. Beauty is the master, and beauty is the controlling principle.”

Whoever sincerely will help me to go towards Krishna, he is siksha guru.
