The poison is personal ambition...

de Pushkaraksha Das, el miércoles, 23 de noviembre de 2011 a las 7:39

" These two things are always side by side - Maya and Krishna - Krishna is service and Maya is sense gratification. Our duty is therefore to be very, very careful. The poison is personal ambition. "

Potent preachers...

" When pregnancy fails, it is due to the weakness of the male partner generally. Similarly, if we are full with Krishna vitality, then wherever we go the audience will be impregnated with Krishna Consciousness. " 

Srila Prabhupada - Letter to Satsvarupa, October 31, 1969

S.B.11.12.1-2

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Domingo, 20 de noviembre de 2011 a las 7:01

The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear Uddhava, by associating with My pure devotees one can destroy one's attachment for all objects of material sense gratification. Such purifying association brings Me under the control of My devotee. One may perform the ashtanga-yoga system, engage in philosophical analysis of the elements of material nature, practice nonviolence and other ordinary principles of piety, chant the Vedas, perform penances, take to the renounced order of life, execute sacrificial performances and dig wells, plant trees and perform other public welfare activities, give in charity, carry out severe vows, worship the demigods, chant confidential mantras, visit holy places or accept major and minor disciplinary injunctions, but even by performing such activities one does not bring Me under his control.

"Those who claim themselves to be devotees...

MRADUKA USNA SUPAKVAN CA KURYAD VAI LAGHU BHOJANAM NA INDRIYANAM YATHA VRADDHIS TATHA BHUNJITA SADHAKAH

(HARI BHAKTI VILASA 17/46 from NARADA PANCARATRA)

 

If one claims himself to be devotee, he must eat a small amount of sweets, steaming hot deep fried preparations, and should avoid any food which agitates his senses.

 

Srila Sanatana Gosvami in his Digdarsini-tika quotes a verse from Saradatilaka, "Those who claim themselves to be devotees should eat their meal in the afternoon, consisting of vegetables and different kinds of fruits, roots and grains."

 



Singing and chanting with devotion to Krishna...

de Pushkaraksha Das, el sábado, 5 de noviembre de 2011 a las 7:59

" People should not misunderstand that we are a band of musical artists. They must know that we are devotees of Krishna. Our devotional practice and purity shall be so strong that whenever we chant there will be immediately an impression in the audience for devotion to Krishna. "

Srila Prabhupada - Letter to Tamal Krishna, October 30, 1969



na karma-bandhanam janma vaisnavanam ca vidyate

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Domingo, 30 de octubre de 2011 a las 8:51

na karma-bandhanam janma vaisnavanam ca vidyate

visnur anucaratvam hi moksam ahur manisinah

 

Vaisnava does not take birth under the jurisdiction of karmic law. His birth and disappearance are transcendental. The wise have declared that the servants of Visnu are eternally engaged in the liberated service of the Lord hence are free from the laws of material nature.

(Hari-Bhakti-Vilasa, 10,113, quoted from Padma Purana)

 


ata eva vaisnavera janma mrtyu nai

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Domingo, 30 de octubre de 2011 a las 9:00

ata eva vaisnavera janma mrtyu nai

sange aisen, sange yayen tathai

dharma, karma, janma vaisnavera kabhu nahe

padma-puranete iha vyakta kari' kahe

 

The Padma Purana says that vaisnavas do not undergo birth and deathlike ordinary people do. They appear and disappear within this world of their own accord. In this way, sometimes we get their association and sometimes

their association is withdrawn. The devotees are not subject to any worldly considerations of duty and karma. (Caitanya Bhagavat, Antya 8.173,174)


Lord Krsna's devotee, His representative, who is sent to the material world for preaching the glories of Lord Krishna...

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Domingo, 30 de octubre de 2011 a las 8:28

“So at the time of death... Of course, those who are devotees, their position is different. People may say, "The devotee is also dying, and the nondevotee, sinful man, is also dying. What is the difference?" So there is much difference. The example is given: just like a cat catching a rat in his mouth and at the same time carrying his cubs in the mouth. Superficially, we can see that the same mouth is being used, but one is feeling comfortable being carried by the mother, and another is feeling the death knell. Similarly, at the time of death, the devotee's feeling that they are being transferred to Vaikuntha, whereas the ordinary sinful man is feeling that the Yamaraja, the dutas, the constables of Yamaraja are dragging him to the hellish condition of life. So one should not conclude simply by seeing that he is dying. No. The process is different. Janma karma ca me divyam. As Lord Krsna's appearance and disappearance are all spiritual, transcendental, they are not ordinary things, similarly, Lord Krsna's devotee, His representative, who is sent to this material world for preaching the glories of Lord Krsna, their appearance and disappearance is also like Krsna's. Therefore, according to Vaisnava principles, the appearance and disappearance of Vaisnava is considered all-auspicious. Therefore we hold festivals. Just like yesterday we had the disappearance day of His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami Prabhupada. So we offered our respects and observed a festival, Avirbhava, Tirobhava. Tirobhava.”

Srila Prabhupada - Lecture on Srimad Bhagavatam 6:1:27-34, Surat

 



Entering into the pastimes of Krishna...

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Domingo, 30 de octubre de 2011 a las 8:13

" Renunciation is required, but when one makes further progress after renunciation towards spiritual life and enters into the Pastimes of Krishna, then things become perfect. " 

Srila Prabhupada - Letter to Kapiladeva, Oct. 24, 1969



Krishna is the Father of all living entities

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Domingo, 30 de octubre de 2011 a las 8:03

Krishna states: " I am the seed-giving father of all living entities. "

 

"It doesn't matter, in different forms. He does not say that " I am the father only of the white, not of the black"

Srila Prabhupada - Nairobi, Oct. 26, 1975



And the real, pure, eternal Vrindavana will be yours...

de Pushkaraksha Das, el jueves, 20 de octubre de 2011 a las 7:01

" Transcend the idea that I am Hindu, American, brahmana, brahmacari, sannyasa, whatever. In Vrindavana, the only identity is I am Krishna's servant. Live in that consciousness, and the real, pure, eternal Vrindavana will be yours... " 

Srila Prabhupada - Vrindavana days, page 311-2

The Divine Couple... Sri-Sri Radha-Krishna

The dust of the lotus feet of Srimati Radharani...

durad apasya svajanam sukham-artha-kotim

sarveshu sadhana-varesu ciram nirasah

“Abandoning Family and Friends, Material Pleasures, Wealth and all other Spiritual paths, finding them distasteful. I take on my head and worship the Dust of the Lotus Feet of Sri Radhika, which is shower of Wonderful Transcendental Bliss!!”

yathā hi skandha-śākhānāṁ

A Krishna conscious person must be seen by ears...

de Pushkaraksha Das, el Martes, 11 de octubre de 2011 a las 7:41

" A Krishna conscious person must be seen by ears and not by the eyes. This is the way one should try to knnow the depth of realization of a Krishna conscious person..."
