Science of Krsna Consciousness, Sri Mahanet Comments Off on Sri Mahanet – April 2024

Serving the Holy Name in pure devotion (Nām-bhajan) in the pain of separation is favorable to achieve union with the Lord —

O Lord, when will my eyes be adorned with tears of love, flowing like waves? When will my words choke with ecstasy, and when will the hairs of my body stand erect while chanting Your Holy Name?


— the Supreme Lord Śrī Chaitanyachandra

A prayer to taste the nectar of devotion in Vrindavana (Vraja-rasa), nondifferent from serving the holy name in pure devotion (nama-bhajana) —

O Aghadamana, O Yasodanandana, O Nandasuno, O Kamalanayana, O Gopicandra, O Vrindavanendra, O Pranatakaruna, O Krishna — You have appeared in many divine forms, such as these. Therefore, O Lord, who are known by these holy names, kindly let my fondness for You flourish.

Science of Krsna Consciousness, Sri Mahanet Comments Off on Sri Mahanet – July 2023

The superexcellence of devotion in the mood of Vrndavana —
Of persons afraid of material existence, some worship the Sruti Scriptures (Vedas), some worship the Smrti Scriptures (supplementary Religious Codes), and others worship the Mahabharata. But as far as I am concerned, I worship Sri Nanda Maharaja, in whose courtyard the Supreme Absolute Truth is playing.

Science of Krsna Consciousness, Sri Mahanet Comments Off on Sri Mahanet – April 2023

The realization of the nature of unconditional devotion—


O Supreme Lord, if our devotion for You were more steadfast, Your adolescent form would naturally arise (appear) within our hearts. Then (there would not be the slightest necessity to pray for the triple pursuits of religiosity, gain, and sensual desire [dharma, artha, kama], and their negation in the form of liberation [mukti], because) mukti will personally attend us (as a concomitant subsidiary fruit of devotion, in the form of deliverance from ignorance), her hands cupped in prayer (like a preordained maidservant); and the fruits of bhukti (transitory pleasure culminating in attainment of heaven) will eagerly await their orders (from us, should any necessity arise for them in the service of Your lotus feet).


— Sri Bilvamangala Thakura

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev-goswami Maharaja, Sri Sri Prapanna-jivanamrtam 3.19]
