Again those SAFFRON PARTICLES
We must get up from this slumber and engage in the right service, for thus we can properly utilize the facility of this human form of life. As expressed in a song by Ṭhākura Bhaktivinoda, Lord Caitanya says, jīva jāgo, jīva jāgo. The Lord asks every sleeping living entity to get up and engage in devotional service so that his mission in this human form of life may be fulfilled. This awakening voice comes through…

No one can attain any mercy of anyone without staying in the dham because all advanced sadhus stay in the dham. The real mission is to bring others to the dham because only there can one chant the nam with realization. I have seen those devotees who don't come to dham for years upon years don't advance so much.
One is so away from our soul's home outside the dham that chanting the nam becomes so dry, hard and difficult for the conditioned souls. Only the siddhas can chant while being… Continue

Reporter: I'm sure that you're aware that to many people in the West, in America, in New York City specifically, that your disciples seem strange because of the way they act on the streets. What about that?
Prabhupāda: Yes, they must be strange because they are spiritual. You are all material. (laughter) So, for the material persons, we are surely strange people.
Reporter: Is this manifestation the only way to be spiritual, dressing in this fashion?
Prabhupāda: No, no, you cannot… Continue

"Sometimes some devotees think that worship of Nityananda is inferior because Nityananda is in the mood of sakya rasa, in the mood of a brother, elder brother...sakhya and vatsalya. "But I want Madhurya prema of Radha and Krishna. So why should I think of Nityananda?" But my dear sir Gauranga is the only way, Gauranga is the only hope for you to achieve any kind of love for Radha and Krishna. And to please Gauranga, there is NO OTHER WAY EXCEPT NITYANANDA. So please don't be under this illusion… Continue

Srila Narayana Goswami Maharaja:
After some days you will become old, at which time all your beauty and power will disappear. After that you will have to pass on from this world, and at that time you will not be able to take a single farthing with you. Moreover, your relatives, sons, daughters, wives, and husbands will not be able to go with you. Sri Krishna has mercifully given you this human body for the sole purpose of chanting His names and remembering Him. It is only in this form that… Continue

"I also used to be afraid of being controlled.
I never wanted to be controlled by anyone.
But when I was controlled by my Gurudeva, — Oh! then I changed completely.
Now I think, “I want to be controlled by my Gurudeva. I want to be controlled by Krishna and His friends in the spiritual world.“ I want to be controlled by them.
Even Krishna wants to be controlled by His friends’ love and affection for Him.
And His friends also want to be controlled by love and… Continue

BHISMA SPEAKS OUT: HOW TO DEAL WITH ENEMIES
Yudhisthira inquired, "How should one react to people who insult you by their rudeness and arrogance?"
Bhisma replied, "If one does not become angry when insulted by another, then he takes away all the pious merit that person may have accumulated by good deeds. In addition he transfers to the abuser his own sinful reactions. After all what is the value of praise or blame when uttered by a vulgar fool? A person who praises some… Continue

2. Bhagavat & Jaiv Dharma say that only the most intelligent & non-crooked accept & chant Gauranga mantra from shastra as it's hidden like Gaur
3. Nitai & Bhaktivinod awakened a rock like me to preach Nityananda & Gauranga Nam openly & widely. I hope more qualified preachers will do so.
4. As only Harinam may take billions of years to give us love, Balai & Kanai came as Nitai & Nimai with Their Names which give love in few days
5. Staunch… Continue

1. To the extent of your faith in Nitai, Gaur will accept you. And to the extent Gaur accepts you, the gopis will bring you to Radha Krishna. 2. It is futile to approach Radha Krishna without sufficient faith in Nitai Gaur. We can never attain Vraja if we don't aspire for… Continue
