Hare Krishna. All glories to Srila Prabhupada…


On Sunday, we are going to meditate on the divine qualities and mission of our Divine Master His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of International Society for Krishna Consciousness who has so kindly come to western contries to free them from the influence of voidism and impersonalism and give the highest gift of love of God to everyone. Without his coming to the West we would never know abou Krishna and our lives would be full of hopeless misery. Both his coming and his departure are glorious and an occasion to give ourselves more to His divine teachings and mission. Again we will have an opportunity to associate with Srila Prabhupada’s senior disciples His Grace Kurma Prabhu and His Grace Tulasi Priya Prabhu who will share their memories and realisations about Srila Prabhupada.Disappearance(2)

Deity Worship Seminar – 25-28.09.2015

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Dear Devotees and Friends. Hare Krishna.

We are very happy to announce the upcoming seminar on Deity Worship and invite you all to attend. It is a great opportunity to learn and deepen your knowledge and experience with Arca Vigraha – the Deity form of the Lord.

Srila Prabhupada:

“He has agreed to be seen by us through the arca-vigraha, the Deity. We should not think that the Deity is made of stone. Even if it is stone, we should think that Krsna has made Himself visible before us like a stone because we cannot see beyond stone. That is Krsna’s mercy. Because our eyes and other senses are imperfect, we cannot see Krsna present everywhere in His original spiritual form. Because we are imperfect, we see the difference between things spiritual and material, but Krsna, being absolute, knows no such distinctions. He can become spiritual or material, however He likes, and it does not make any difference to Him. Being almighty and omnipotent, Krsna can change matter into spirit and spirit into matter. Therefore we should not think, as the atheists do, that we are worshiping idols. Even if it is an idol, it is still Krsna. That is the absolute nature of Krsna. Even if we think that the Deity is a stone, or a piece of metal or some wood, He is still Krsna. The understanding of this requires bhakti on our part. If we are a little thoughtful and philosophical, and if we are at all inclined toward bhakti, we can understand that Krsna is present in stone.”

Sri Radhastami – appearance of Srimati Radharani. September 20th and 21st

Friday, September 11th, 2015


Srimati Radharani according to Srila Prabhupada

Adapted from a lecture by Srila Prabhupada given on Radhastami, the appearance anniversary of Srimati Radharani, on September 18, 1969, in London:

What is the position of Srimati Radharani? We should try to understand this today and offer our obeisances to Radharani. “Radhe vrndavanesvari:”

radhe vrndavanesvari

vrsabhanu-sute devi
pranamami hari-priye

Our business is to pray, “Radharani, You are so dear to Krishna. So we offer our respectful obeisances unto You:”

radhe vrndavanesvari

vrsabhanu-sute devi
pranamami hari-priye

Radharani is hari-priya, very dear to Krishna. So if we approach Krishna through the mercy of Radharani, then it becomes very easy. If Radharani recommends that, “This devotee is very nice,” then Krishna immediately accepts, however foolish I may be. Because Radharani recommends it, Krishna accepts. Therefore, in Vrndavana you’ll find all the devotees chanting Radharani’s name more than Krishna’s. Wherever you’ll go, you’ll find the devotees are addressing one another, “Jaya Radhe.” They are glorifying Radharani. They’re more interested in worshiping Her. This is because, however fallen I may be, if somehow or other I can please Radharani, then it is very easy for me to understand Krishna. Otherwise,

manusyanam sahasresu kascid yatati siddhaye
yatatam api siddhanam kascid vetti mam tattvatah

– Bhagavad-gita 7.3

If you go by the speculative process to understand Krishna, it will take many, many lives. But if you take to devotional service and you just try to please Radharani, then Krishna will be gotten very easily, because Radharani can deliver Krishna. She is such a great devotee, the emblem of maha-bhagavata (topmost level of devotion to Krishna). Even Krishna Himself, though He says vedaham samatitani (“I know everything”) cannot understand Radharani’s quality. Radharani is so great. Actually, Krishna knows everything, and in order to understand Radharani, Krishna accepts the position of Radharani in order to understand Her potency. Krishna thought, “I am full. I am complete in every respect, but still I want to understand Radharani. Why?” This propensity made Krishna obliged to accept the propensities of Radharani, to understand Krishna, Himself.

These are, of course, very transcendental topics. It is a great science. Only one who is advanced in Krishna consciousness and well conversant with the shastras can understand such things. But still, we can discuss from the shastra (scriptures). When Krishna wanted to understand Himself, He adopted the tendency of Srimati Radharani. And that is Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

Radha-bhava-dyuti-suvalitam: Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is Krishna, but He has accepted the propensities of Radharani. As Radharani is always feeling separation from Krishna, similarly, in the position of Radharani, Lord Chaitanya was feeling separation from Krishna. That is the teaching of Lord Chaitanya – feelings of separation, not meeting. The process of devotional service taught by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and His disciplic succession is how to feel separation from Krishna. And that is Radharani’s position: always feeling that separation.
