It is an offence to take grains on Nityananda Trayodasi , SEVAPARADHA

dear devotees

Please accept my humble obaisences

All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga all glories to Srila Prabhupada

Jaya Gaura Nitai

It is stated :

Harinam CONSIDERS offenses.

Gauranam FORGIVES offenses.

Nitainam IGNORES offenses.

So Lord Nityananda Prabhu is very merciful , but we should not underestimate His position as the Supreme Lord. Lord Nityananda Prabhu in His form as Baladeva killed Romaharsana Suta for not paying obaisences to…

Bhagavad Gita 18.42

Bhagavad Gita 18.42 came to mind now since Srila Prabhupada did not give a commentary I have put together the commentaries of our acaryas :

śamo damas tapaḥ śaucaḿ

kṣāntir ārjavam eva ca

jñānaḿ vijñānam āstikyaḿ

brahma-karma svabhāva-jam

Translation of Bhagavad Gita 18.42

Peacefulness, self-control, austerity, purity, tolerance, honesty, knowledge, wisdom and religiousness—these are the natural qualities by which the brahmanas work.

Commentary…

During the morning pūjā, or worship, the Deity or a śālagrāma is bathed in pure ghee. Śrīla Prabhupāda once explained the festival this way: "Kṛṣṇa was just a toy in the hands of the gopīs, so one day the Gopis decided…
