Sripad Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja read from Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita.

To begin, we recited the Damodarastakam, which can be found at:

  • Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami explains why we should have faith in the Holy Name.
  • The Holy Name is so attractive that anyone, including the demigods, who chants it under the shelter of pure devotees becomes imbued with love of Krsna.
  • In the conclusions of Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Lord Sri Krsna instructs Arjuna to surrender with full faith on our eternal well-wisher Lord Sri Krsna. Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu taught the post Bhagavat Gita lesson: how surrender should be manifested.
  • While traveling through the forest to visit Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Sanatana Goswami contracted a disease which caused his skin to itch. Ashamed of his open, running sores, he resisted Lord Sri Chaitanya’s embrace. Thinking his body unfit for service to Mahaprabhu, Sanatana Goswami was planning to give up his body. However, the all-knowing and most merciful Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu not only removed Sanatana Goswami’s bodily sufferings by His loving embrace, but gave a most important teaching: Gurudev is the proprietor of everything a sincere disciple possesses, including his own body. Hence a disciple should take care of Gurudev’s property sincerely with the mood of devotion so that it will not incur any harm due to one’s own self-interest.
  • Sripad Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja explains that the three Goswamis each have special significance in the teachings of Krsna Consciousness. Sanatana Goswami is the Sambandha Acharya, who teaches us our fundamental relationship to Krsna. Rupa Goswami teaches us Abhideya, the path or process of devotional service. Raghunatha Goswami teaches us Prayojana, the ultimate goal, which is to become the servant of the servant of Srimati Radharani.
