socalled Gaudiya vaisnava opposed to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada

Shyam Krishnadasov The irony is that the author of the post about Advaita Acharya uploads a photo of the murti of Advaita Acharya with long hair ��! Can the author write to Advaita Bhavan and teach them the correct way ... to take off their hair and present Acharya as bald?Advaita Acarya yes had long hair like Nimai and Nityananda Prabhu And he was wearing white Vaishnava robes and not red Baula like in GMLike · Reply · 7h · Edited Hide 53 RepliesView 18 more repliesShyam…See More

feast offered in my name on Guru Purnima

my student Miniketana Rama Prabhu offered a feast in my name today to Lord Krsna because he takes me as his Gurudeva I was very touched by his devotion on Guru Purnima, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada said I have 4 disciples 2 hands and 2 legs that was his humility he never thought look at me I have 60.000 disciples,So what to speak of insignificant souls like us what we should think while humbly chanting Hare Krsna 64 rounds daily ?ŚB 7.9.8श्रीप्रह्राद उवाचब्रह्मादय: सुरगणा मुनयोऽथ…See More

Vaisnava Amrta chapter 14 Srila Prabhupada chanted 64 rounds and this instruction is his Adi Vani

Vaisnava Amrta chapter 14 Srila Prabhupada chanted 64 rounds and this instruction is his Adi Vani Srila Prabhupada was introduced to chanting 64 rounds of the Hare Krsna mantra when he met Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada. One Brahmacari , Narottamananda would sometimes meet Srila Prabhupada in his house in Kolkatta and described that Srila Prabhupada chanted 64 roundsprior to his initiation in 1932. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada did not give diksa to anyone not chanting 64 rounds .When I…See More

Srila Prabhupada ,Jesus Christ offering obaisences to Sri Krsna in Garden of Gethsemane and Aquarian Gospel

Jesus Christ praying in the Garden of GETHSEMANEMatthew 26:36-46 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My…See More

Shri Saci-nandana-vijayastaka

Eight Prayers Describing the Glories of the Son of Saci

1

gadadhara yada parah sa kila ksacanalokito

maya shrita-gayadhavana madhura-murtir ekas tada

navambuda iva bruvan dhrta-navambudo netrayor

luthan bhuvi niruddha-vag vijayate saci-nandanah

One day, Gadadhara Pandita heard the following words: O Gadadhara! I saw the most extraordinary person on the road to Gaya.  His form was very handsome, and He roared just like a thundercloud.  His eyes rained tears as if they had become rain clouds, and He rolled about on the ground, His voice choked up in the ecstasy of love of God. All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

2

alaksita-carim harity-udita-matratah kam dasam

asav ati-budhagranir atula-kampa-sampadikam

vrajann ahaha modte na punar atra sastresv iti

sva-sisya-gana-vestito vijayate saci-nandanah

Oh, what kind of extraordinary state has He attained?  Although He is the leader of the scholars, He no longer delights in study.  When He holds class, surrounded by his pupils, if He hears the sound “Hari”, He begins to tremble.  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

3

haha kim idam ucyate patha pathatra krishnam muhur

vina tam iha sadhutam dadhati kim buddha dhatavah

prasiddha iha varna-sanghatita-samyag-amnayakah

sva-namni yad iti bruvan vijayate saci-nandanah

Once during class Lord Chaitanya interrupted a pupil and asked,‘What are you saying?  Instead of these verbs, you should constantly repeat the name of Krishna, the most famous of all worlds according to the Vedas.  O students, without Krishna, what benefit can verbs give?’  All glories to Lord Chaitanya, the son of Saci-devi, who chants His own holy name in that way.

4

navambuja-dale yad-iksana-savarnata-dirghate

sada sva-hrdi bhavyatam sapadi sadhyatam tat-padam

sa pathayati vismitan smita-mukhah sva-sisyan iti

prati-prakaranam prabhur vijayate saci-nandanah

No matter what the particular topic of study was, He would smile and instruct His astonished grammar students in this way: ‘O students, please place the two large eyes of Shri Krishna, which are as beautiful as two lotus petals, within your hearts, and please place His lotus feet within your hearts in the same way.’  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

5

kva yani karavani kim kva nu maya harir labhyatam

tam udisatu kah sakhe kathaya kah prapadyeta mam

iti dravati ghurnate kalita-bhakta-kanthah suca

sa murchayati mataram vijayate saci-nandanah

At other times, the Lord would say, ‘O friend, where shall I go, and what shall I do to attain Lord Hari?’ Who will show Him to Me?  Please tell me who will help me in this way’. Speaking thus, the Lord ran here and there and rolled about on the ground.  Their throats filled with grief, the stricken devotees called out to Him. In this way the Lord caused His mother Saci-devi, to faint.  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

6

smararbuda-durapaya tanu-ruci-chata-cchayaya

tamah kali-tama-krtam nikhilam eva nirmulayan

nrnam nayana-saubhagam divi-sadam mukhais tarayan

lasann adhi-dharah prabhur vijayate saci-nandanah

The reflection of the splendid beauty of the Lord is not attainable even by millions of Cupids, and with that splendour the Lord uproots the darkness of the ignorance of the age of Kali. Descending with the principal demigods, the Lord delighted the eyes of the residents of this earth planet.  All glories to that effulgent Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

7

ayam kanaka-bhudharah pranaya-ratnam uccaih kiran

krpaturataya vrajan abhavad atra visvambharah

yad-aksi-patha-sancarat-suradhuni-pravahair nijam

param ca jagad ardayan vijayate saci-nandanah

He is like a golden mountain that scatters jewels of pure love of God.  Because of His great mercy He wandered on this earth planet.  That Lord, known as Visvambhara, the maintainer of the universe, inundated His own universe with the currents of the Ganges river of tears of love of Godhead flowing from His eyes.  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

8

gato ‘smi mathuram mama priyatama visakha-sakhi

gata nu bata kam dasam vada katham nu vedani tam

itiva sa ni jecchaya vraja-pateh sutah prapitas

tadiya-rasa-carvanam vijayate saci-nandanah

Lord Krishna said to Uddhava: ‘What is the condition of Shrimati Radharani now that I have come to Mathura? Please tell me so that I may understand.’  In order to fulfil His own desire, Lord Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, has descended as Lord Chaitanya to taste the mellows of His own devotional service

9

idam pathati yo ‘stakam guna-nidhe saci-nandana

prabho tava padambuje sphurad-amanda-visrambhavan

tam ujjvala-matim nija-pranaya-rupa-varganugam

vidhaya nija-dhamani drutam uri-kurusva svayam

O Lord, O son of Saci-devi, O ocean of transcendental qualities, please place in Your abode all who read these eight verses and are full of faith in Your lotus feet.  Please accept those readers whose intelligence is pure and who follow in the footsteps of the great devotees headed by Shrila Rupa Govami, who are full of great love for You.

The Jiva issue ,why does it never get old ?

The Jiva issue ,why does it never get old ?

Recently I had a talk with Prema Sankirtana Prabhu once more about the Jiva issue.To me it is irritating because it really does not matter where we fell from Goloka or Brahman .Srila Prabhupada was very specific ,now you are not in Goloka or Tattastha Sakti in a Brahman position so FORGET about this issue .But every time I talk to Prema Sankirtana it is always on his mind I quoted this sloka :A soul's journey to the kingdom of God by Purushottam Nitai Das - Blog - ISKCON Desire Tree | IDT

Nectar about Lord Vamanadev !

Lord Vamanadeve is best worshipped by full Nirjala fasting as explained in Hari Bhakti Vilasa, and chanting 64 rounds, and reading the pastimes in Srimad Bhagavatam in relation to Him

SB 6.8.13: May the Lord, who assumes the body of a great fish, protect me in the water from the fierce animals that are associates of the demigod Varuṇa. By expanding His illusory energy, the Lord assumed the form of the dwarf Vāmana. May Vāmana protect me on the land. Since the gigantic form of the…
