Sri Guru-Gauranga Radha-Modan-Mohan Jiu – New Temple Construction

The Kuliya gram of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu graciously wished to manifest himself through His dear devotee Srila Bhakti Prappan Tirtha Maharaj. Naturally and simply as the whole divine Holy place of Lila Sri Gaura-Sundara became available to our eyes.

Sri Madhava Das Bhavan, Aparadha-bhajan-path, a place where sinners, abusers and scoundrels like me have found not only forgiveness, but also unconditional Love for God, Krishna-Prema. Lord Chaitanya stayed in this place for some time, thereby making this blessed land worthy of special honors and worship.

Sri Prema-vivarta

Sri Jagadananda Pandit has written a beautiful description of the variegated conditions of the jivas in his book Sri Prema-vivarta (6.2-13).

krsna-bahirmukha hana bhoga-vancha kare
nikata-stha maya tare japatiya dhare

As long as jivas focus their attention on Krsna, they maintain reverence for Him. However, when they turn their attention away
from Krsna, they desire material enjoyment. Krsna’s deluding potency, maya, who is standing near them,
then binds them in her embrace.

pisaci paile jena mati-cchana haya
maya-grasta jivera haya se bhava udaya

The dharma of the jiva who has turned away from Krsna becomes covered, just as a person’s intelligence
becomes covered when he is haunted by a witch.

There are two types of entities: cetana, animate, and jada, inanimate. Animate entities are those that have desire and the power to experience, and inanimate entities are those that do not. There are also two types of animate entities: those who possess full consciousness (purna-cetana) and those who possess minute consciousness (ksudra-cetana). Bhagavan possesses full consciousness, and in His original feature He is Krsna.

Srimon Mahaprabhu and Sri Ray Ramananda

From: Sri Prema dhama Deva stotram

— Verse 23 —

godavarya-vama-tira-ramananda-samvadam
jnana-karmma-mukta-marma-raga-bhakti-sampadam
parakiya-kanta-krsna-bhava-sevanakaram
prema-dhama-devam eva naumi gaura-sundaram

The famous conversation of Lord Gaurasundar with Ramananda Ray on the banks of the Godavari River is known as the Ramananda-samvad in the Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta. In those discussions, the highest form of dedication is pure love of God in a heart free from fruitive aspirations and scriptural calculation. Also, Lord Krishna, who appeared as the son of Nanda Maharaj, was ascertained as the sole recipient of the sweetness relished in the mellows of parakiya-rasa. I offer my obeisances to that beautiful Golden Lord, Gaurangasundar, the divine form of Krishna prema.

A nice letter

Srila Bhaktivionda ThakurSaraswati!

People of this world who are proud of their own aristocratic birth attack the pure Vaisnava… Thus they commit offenses. The solution to the problem is to establish the order of daiva-varnāśrama-dharma—something you have started doing: you should know that to be the real service to the Vaisnava. Because pure devotional conclusions are not being preached, all kinds of superstitions and bad concepts are being called devotion by such pseudo sampradāyas as sahajiya and ativādi.

Please always crush these anti-devotional concepts by preaching pure devotional conclusions and by setting an example… Please try very hard to make sure that the service to Sri Māyāpur will become a permanent thing. The real service to Sri Māyāpur can be done by acquiring printing presses, distributing devotional books, and sankirtana-preaching. Please do not neglect to serve Sri Māyāpur or to preach for the sake of your own reclusive bhajana. When I am not present any, more, please take care to serve Sri Māyāpur dhāma which is so dear to you. This is my special instruction to you.

I had a special desire to preach the significance of such books as Srimad-Bhagavatam, Şat-Sandarbha, and Vedānta Darśana. You have to accept that responsibility. Sri Māyāpur will prosper if you establish an educational institution there. Never make any effort to collect knowledge or money for your own enjoyment. Only to serve the Lord will you collect these things.

May 3, 2022 Akshaya-tritiya!

The most favorable day of the year for spiritual and other endeavors.

The Kuliya gram of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu graciously wished to manifest himself through His dear devotee Srila Bhakti Prappan Tirtha Maharaj. Naturally and simply as the whole divine Holy place of Lil Sri Gaura-Sundara became available to our eyes.

Sri Madhava Das bhavan, Aparadha-bhajan-path, a place where sinners, abusers and scoundrels like me have found not only forgiveness, but also unconditional Love for God, Krishna-Prema. Lord Chaitanya stayed in this place for some time, thereby making this blessed land worthy of special honors and worship.

Far from the city highways, among fertile fields and banana groves, Sri Guru-Gauranga Radha-Modan-Mohanjiu lives in a small temple built by the joint efforts of local villagers and devoted followers of Srila Bhakti Prappan Tirtha Maharaj. They are sincerely served by all who feel a kinship with Goura-Krishna Lila and wish themselves eternal good.

Transcendental Knowledge

Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar MaharajHis Divine Grace Srila B.R.Sridhar Dev Goswami Maharaja

Sometimes we may be misguided to believe that we must not study the devotional books, thinking: “To analyze, to know, that is not part of devotion. That is not necessary; it is knowledge, jnana, and that is anti-devotion.” Thinking in this way we will go on taking the Holy Name, and wherever there is some explanation being given about the devotional school, we will try to avoid it. But that is not always best, because by hearing from the proper source we get the kind of knowledge that gives us impetus to go on in our sadhana.

In Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita Srila Krishnadås Kaviraja Goswami says: siddhanta baliya, we should discuss the siddhanta (perfect conclusions of devotion). Sanatana Goswami is the acharya of siddhanta.

One may say, “What is the necessity of knowing siddhanta, what is what? I shall go on chanting the Name and wherever there is any class being given to explain Srimad Bhagavatam or Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita I shall avoid it. That is all knowledge: jnane prayasam udapasya. “One should totally abandon the unnecessary endeavor of gaining knowledge by discussing empirical philosophical truths.” (Srimad-Bhågavatam 10.14.3)
