May 16

Sripad Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja read from Srimad Bhagavatam.

  • Maharaja Pariksit deeply regretted his apparent disrespect toward Samaka Rishi. A devotee never thinks of himself as being perfect. Therefore he engages in devotional service with humility, always hoping for the grace of the Lord.
  • A devotee does not mind his own suffering, but considers it to be mercy from the Supreme Lord — an opportunity for purification. The voluntary acceptance of suffering is known as tapasya. Because a devotee fully understands the laws of karma, he is not so concerned with happiness and distress, but automatically transcends the duality of the material world via devotional service.
  • Sripad Puri Maharaja discusses the on-going dialectic between the mundane materialistic ideologies and the potential for spiritual awakening. This global interplay proceeds according to the Will of God.
  • Maharaja discusses the progression from Spinoza to Hegel with respect to the dynamics of the Absolute as Personal, or Subject, and not merely Substance.
