THE BONA FIDE GURU IS CONNECTED TO KARUNA SAGARA-THE OCEAN OF MERCY

Similarly, the mercy cloud, karunya, karuna,

ghanaghanatvam… So just like ordinary cloud is made possible by

evaporating water from the sea, similarly, Krsna has the sea of mercy,

karunayamaya, karuna-sagara. Krsna’s another name is Karuna-sagara. So

as the air evaporate or the heat evaporate from the sea, and the cloud

is formed in the sky, similarly, one who has connection or the power

to evaporate the mercy sea of Krsna, he can extinguish the samsara

davanala.(repeated birth and deathAnd that is guru. Guru is the cloud or he is the agent of

drying water from the ocean of mercy of Krsna and turn it into a mercy

cloud and pour water on the samsara davanala, and then it is

extinguished. Samsara davanala-lidha-loka-tranaya

karunya-ghanaghanatvam, praptasya kalyana.

The first cauliflower of this season-may not seem like a big deal to those who go to

some store and buy them , but for those of us who are trying to eat only what

we grow, this IS a big deal.  This particular plant (called needles cauliflower ) takes 220 days to produce the

cauliflower and basically over winters outside first in a cold frame, then around March

I put them inside the greenhouse where they can flourish.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Below is a short talk by Srila Prabhupada where he easily explains how Bhagavad gita is so often misunderstood, even by so called great scholars, or even devotees as well. He also gives the simple formula in three steps how to understand Bhagavad Gita.

Prabhupada: Yes, actually without listening, so many big, big men,
they have committed mistake about Bhagavad-gita

750615SB.HON                   Lectures
Nobody is free.Everyone is under the grip of material laws. Even if I think, “I am
free,” that is my foolishness. I will be forced to act. Even if I do
not want to become old man, I will be forced to become old man. And if
I, after this giving up this body, if I… Suppose nature is offering
me a dog’s body. If I say “No, no, I will not accept this,” no, you
will be forced to accept it. That is nature’s law
. But you can save
yourself if you follow conscientiously. That is Krsna consciousness.
If you keep yourself in Krsna consciousness and act accordingly, then
you will be saved. Otherwise there is no saving. Read the rest of this entry →

Hare Krsna

Pranams

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Last night before falling asleep I read this below in the conversation books. It is very instructive for devotees wishing for the blessings of God and Guru.  Hare Krsna is not a sit down do nothing spiritual movement. It is meant first of all for ourselves,individually, and then we give what we have  learned and assimilated to others.It comes in, and then goes out, but we feel invigorated by passing on this transcendental knowledge to all whom we meet.

If one reads with an impartial mind all of Srila Prabhupadas books, Read the rest of this entry →

1.) 770111tt.ida
According to Vedic civilization, you are actually untouchable. Now we have come to touch
you
; therefore wash you must first.
You are untouchable. In Indian
civilization, dog is untouchable, and that is your best friend
. So you
are not touchable. Therefore we have to wash you. And unless your
brain is washed, you cannot understand Krsna
. So it is necessary. Is
that all right? Dog is your best friend. In India dog is untouchable. So “Man is known by his company.” If your best friend is dog, then
what you are?
We can understand your position because you sleep with
dog, you eat with dog, your best friend is dog, so what you are? You
must be washed. It is a fact. Every woman, every man, has some dog. Read the rest of this entry →
