Question: When devotees pray in the line of mama janmani janmananisware – let me serve you birth after birth – I was wondering this maya’s world is filled with risks that could distract one from pure service. Please reveal the mood behind this prayer?

Guru maharaj: The mood is that as long as we are in this service of vaisnavas, guru and Govinda, or Gauranga, that we will be free from the contamination of maya. So we don’t mind going to the spiritual world, as long as we can serve the Lord there. But for being in...

Question: Hare Krishna. I am 23 years plus. I want to serve guru and Gauranga throughout my life. But I am not able to decide whether to be enter brahmachari ashram or grihastha ashram. Please help me.

Guru maharaj: What help should I give? Normally, if anyone said this to Srila Prabhupada, I am not able to decide whether I should get married or remain a brahmachari. Then Srila Prabhupada would say then you get married Ha! To stay a brahmachari is hard it is called...

Question: Why did Lord Chaitanya leave the planet at 44 years, why did He not stay here longer?

Guru Maharaja: Because He is independent, He can do whatever He likes. He left a lot of work for you to do, (laughter) but He is still here in the form of His order and His message and He has left you lots of service. Now you can get Lord Chaitanya's misericordia...

Question: What do we do for Akshaya Tritiya?

Guru Maharaja: Do something special. One time I asked Srila Prabhupada what we should do on some of these special days. He said like well, just like the store has a sale, to attract new customers. You are already a regular customer; you are there every day. This is...

THAT IS WHY I WEAR A MASK……..

(I ASK FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS) One person was from Singapore and the other from Kolkata. But both of them did not survive! If one has a sickness and is suffering, then there is always a doubt if they will survive or not. Since I have a new liver and kidney, we have to...

Question: We were reading Bhagavad-gita and Bhagavatam to a pregnant woman mother. Just two weeks before her delivery she lost her baby because of strangling of cord. People expect blessings for the baby and read. How to understand such unfortunate incidents?  

Guru maharaj: A child hears from the seventh month onwards. So maybe the child by hearing the Bhagavad-gita was already liberated! So why take birth? So much maya after you are born! Maybe the child was allowed to go back to Godhead right away. The child had prasadam...

Question: How to continue in devotional service in difficult situations?  

Guru Maharaj: You see, the devas they prayed to Lord Caitanya, they only have two problems, one is attack by demons and the second one they said, we have so much material happiness, that we forget to worship You. So difficulties are blessings. They help us to remember...

Question: Acute sensitivity to people and situation, could this be an obstacle to Krsna consciousness?

Guru maharaj: Yes. Next question. Being overly sensitive we want to please guru and Krishna. We are not trying to run a popularity contest. Some people may not be satisfied. Today our architect candidate, he said that scientists, they always criticize, we should reach...

Question: Rupa and Sanatan caused distress to their family members by leaving home. Why could they not keep their jobs and just add Krishna to their lives?  

Guru maharaj: The emperor Hussain Shah, he thought that Sanatan and Rupa are very intelligent. And that if they are not working for him, they may work for his enemy. So he arrested Sanatan Goswami, unless he would promise to continue this service toa work as his prime...

તમે નથી જાણતા કે કોણ તમારૂં ધ્યાન રાખી રહ્યું છે

"જ્યારે તમે આધ્યાત્મિક ગ્રંથોનું વિતરણ કરી રહ્યા છો, અને તમે કંઈક પરમ આનંદનો અનુભવ કરી રહ્યા હોય છે, તે સમયે તમે નથી જાણતા કે કોણ તમારૂં ધ્યાન રાખી રહ્યું છે. પરંતુ તમે ખાતરી કરી શકો છો કે શ્રીલ પ્રભુપાદ, આધ્યાત્મિક ગુરુઓ, ગુરુ-શિષ્ય પરંપરા, તેઓ તમારી સાથે હોય છે. આ...

એકમાત્ર નૈતિકતા છે…

"મનુષ્યે સંપૂર્ણ રીતે પ્રામાણિક, સ્પષ્ટવાદી હોવું જોઈએ. પછી મનુષ્ય ઉચ્ચતમ સ્તરે ભક્તિમય સેવામાં પ્રગતિ કરી શકે છે. અલબત્ત, શરૂઆતમાં, ભક્તિમય સેવાના કારણમાં કંઈપણ, કોઈ નુકસાન નથી, પરંતુ જેમ કે મનુષ્ય વધુને વધુ જવાબદાર બનતો જાય છે, પછી તેણે કૃષ્ણ સાથે વધુ ને વધુ...

સંસ્કૃતિ

"સભ્યતા માટે સભ્ય માનવામાં આવે તેવું તળિયાનું વાક્ય એ છે કે તેઓએ ઓછામાં ઓછું વર્ણાશ્રમ પ્રણાલીનું પાલન કરવું જોઈએ, અને ચોક્કસપણે, સભ્યતાની પૂર્ણતા ત્યારે છે જ્યારે તેઓ ખરેખર સંપૂર્ણપણે ઈશ્વર ભાવનાભાવિત હોય." શ્રી શ્રીમદ્ જયપતાકા સ્વામી ૨૮ મે, ૧૯૮૪ ન્યૂ ઓર્લિયન્સ,...

એક મહાન રહસ્ય છે

"પ્રભુપાદે જાહેર કર્યું કે કૃષ્ણ ભાવનામૃતમાં ઉન્નત બનવું એ એક મહાન રહસ્ય છે. આ એક મહાન રહસ્ય છે, તે રહસ્ય એ છે કે મનુષ્યએ આધ્યાત્મિક ગુરુ અને પાછલા આચાર્યોની દયા માટે શુદ્ધ ભક્તિમય સેવામાં આગળ વધવાની પ્રાર્થના કરવી જોઈએ. મનુષ્યએ પ્રાર્થના કરવી જોઈએ. તેણે મહાન...

ગુરુ મહારાજ તરફથી અક્ષય તૃત્રિયા સંદેશ

આવતી કાલે અક્ષય તૃત્રિયા છે. તમે કોઈપણ પ્રકારની કૃષ્ણ ભાવનામય પ્રવૃત્તિઓ કરો છો તે હંમેશ માટે રહે છે. તે તમારા શાશ્વત આધ્યાત્મિક ખાતામાં જાય છે. હું તારામંડળના ગુંબજ પર ધ્વજા ચઢાવવા જઈ રહ્યો છું. તમે શું કરવાની યોજના બનાવી રહ્યા છો? આપનો સદૈવ શુભચિંતક, જયપતાકા...

ડોક્ટરોએ મને ખૂબ કાળજી રાખવાનું કહ્યું છે

ડૉક્ટરોએ મને ખૂબ કાળજી રાખવાનું કહ્યું છે, પહેલા છ મહિના પછી એક વર્ષ, હવે છ મહિના થઈ ગયા છે. ૧૫ ઓગસ્ટના રોજ એક વર્ષ થશે. મારા પછી, હોસ્પિટલમાં બે યકૃતના પ્રત્યારોપણ થયા. એક વ્યક્તિ સિંગાપુરની હતી અને બીજી કોલકાતાની. પરંતુ બન્ને જીવિત ન રહ્યા! જો કોઈને રોગ છે અને તે...

કૃષ્ણ દ્વારા આત્માને સંતુષ્ટ કરી શકાય છે

"મન આ શરીરથી ક્યારેય સંતુષ્ટ ના થઈ શકે; અને ના તો મન આત્માને સંતુષ્ટ કરી શકે છે. પરંતુ આત્માને કૃષ્ણ દ્વારા સંતુષ્ટ કરી શકાય છે, કારણ કે આપણે કૃષ્ણના અંશ છીએ. તેથી આધ્યાત્મિક રીતે, એક શાશ્વત જીવાત્મા, શાશ્વત આત્મા, કૃષ્ણ ભાવના ભક્તિયોગની પ્રક્રિયાના માધ્યમ દ્વારા...

જો તમે જીવનમાં પાછા વળીને જુઓ છો

"જો તમે જીવનમાં પાછા વળીને જુઓ છો અને તમે જે પ્રગતિ કરી છે તેની સાથે તેની સરખામણી કરો, અને પછી આગળ જુઓ અને જુઓ કે તમારે કેટલી વધારે પ્રગતિ કરવાની જરૂર છે, તમે કેવી રીતે આત્મસંતુષ્ટ રહી શકો છો?" શ્રી શ્રીમદ્ જયપતાકા સ્વામી ૨૭ મે ૨૦૧૭ ડેટ્રોઇટ,...

એક શબ્દ વાંચીને

"શ્રીલ પ્રભુપાદે સમજાવ્યું છે કે પરલૌકિક સાહિત્યમાંથી માત્ર એક શબ્દ વાંચીને, આનાથી વ્યક્તિનું આધ્યાત્મિક જીવન શરૂ થાય છે. ભલે તેઓ એક શબ્દ પણ વાંચે, આ એક શરૂઆત છે. આનાથી તેઓએ કૃષ્ણ સાથેના જોડાણનો પ્રારંભ કર્યો છે. આનાથી તેમને પ્રથમ આધ્યાત્મિક પગલું મળ્યું છે." શ્રી...

आप नहीं जानते हैं कि कौन आपका ध्यान रख रहा है

"जब आप आद्यात्मिक साहित्य वितरित कर रहे होते हैं, और आप कुछ परमानंद महसूस कर रहे होते हैं, तो आप नहीं जानते हैं कि उस समय कौन आपका ध्यान रख रहा है, लेकिन आप सुनिश्चित कर सकते हैं कि श्रील प्रभुपाद, आध्यात्मिक गुरु, गुरु-शिष्य परंपरा, वे आपके साथ होते हैं। यह उनकी...

एकमात्र नैतिकता है…

"मनुष्य को पूरी तरह से ईमानदार, स्पष्टवादी होना पड़ता है। फिर मनुष्य उच्चतम स्तरों पर भक्तिमय सेवा में उन्नति कर सकता है। बेशक,शुरुआत में, भक्तिमय सेवा के कारण में कुछ भी, कोई नुकसान नहीं होता है, लेकिन जैसे मनुष्य और अधिक जिम्मेदार होता है, तब उसे कृष्ण के साथ अधिक...

सभ्यता

"सभ्यता के लिए सभ्य माना जाने वाली नीचे की रेखा यह है कि उन्हें कम से कम वर्णाश्रम प्रणाली का पालन करना चाहिए, और निश्चित रूप से सभ्यता की पूर्णता तब है जब वे वास्तव में पूरी तरह से ईश्वर भावनाभावित हो।" श्री श्रीमद् जयपताका स्वामी २८ मई १९८४ न्यू ऑर्लियन्स,...

एक बड़ा रहस्य है

“प्रभुपाद ने खुलासा किया कि कृष्ण भावनामृत में उन्नत बनना यह एक महान रहस्य है। एक महान रहस्य है, वह रहस्य यह है कि मनुष्य को वह आध्यात्मिक गुरु की दया और शुद्ध भक्तिमय सेवा में आगे बढ़ने के लिए पिछले आचार्यों को निरंतर प्रार्थना करे। मनुष्य को चाहिए की वह प्रार्थना...

गुरु महाराज की ओर से अक्षय तृतीया संदेश

कल अक्षय तृतीया है। आप जो भी कृष्णभावनामय कार्यकलाप करते हैं वह हमेशा के लिए रहता है। यह आपके शाश्वत आध्यात्मिक खाते में जाता है। मैं तारामंडल गुंबद पर ध्वजा चढ़ाने जा रहा हूं। तुम क्या करने की योजना बना रहे हो? आपका सदैव शुभचिंतक, जयपताका...

चिकित्सकों ने मुझे बहुत सावधान रहने के लिए कहा है

चिकित्सकों ने मुझे बहुत सावधान रहने के लिए कहा है, पहले छह महीने फिर एक साल, अब छह महीने हो गए हैं। १५ अगस्त को एक साल होगा। मेरे बाद, अस्पताल में दो यकृत प्रत्यारोपण हुए। एक व्यक्ति सिंगापुर का था और दूसरा कोलकाता का। लेकिन दोनों की जान नहीं बची! यदि किसी को बीमारी...

कृष्ण द्वारा आत्मा को संतुष्ट किया जा सकता है

"मन इस शरीर से कभी भी संतुष्ट नहीं हो सकता; और न ही मन आत्मा को संतुष्ट कर सकता है। लेकिन आत्मा को कृष्ण द्वारा संतुष्ट किया जा सकता है, क्योंकि हम कृष्ण के अंश हैं। इसलिए आध्यात्मिक रूप से, एक शाश्वत जीवित इकाई, शाश्वत आत्मा के रुप से, कृष्ण भावना भक्ति योग की...

यदि आप जीवन में पीछे मुडकर देखते हैं

"यदि आप जीवन में पीछे मुडकर देखते हैं, और आपके द्वारा की गई प्रगति के साथ इसकी तुलना करें, और फिर आगे देखें और देखें कि आपको कितनी अधिक प्रगति करने की आवश्यकता है, आप कैसे आत्मसंतुष्ट रह सकते हैं?" श्री श्रीमद् जयपताका स्वामी २७ मई २०१७ डेट्रायट,...

एक शब्द पढ़कर

"श्रील प्रभुपाद ने समझाया है कि पारलौकिक साहित्य से मात्र एक शब्द भी पढ़कर, इससे व्यक्ति का आध्यात्मिक जीवन शुरू होता है। भले ही वे एक शब्द पढ़ें यह एक शुरुआत है। इससे कृष्ण के साथ उनका संबंध शुरू हो गया है। इससे उन्हें पहला आध्यात्मिक कदम मिला है।” श्री श्रीमद्...

Question: How to develop vaishnava qualities?

GM: We should always be associating with the advanced devotees. We can do that by directly association or by reading. How the vaishnavas in the shaastra behaved in different situations. And we try to correct ourselves, we talk to our spouses or we talk to some guru,...

Question: You were saying that the smaartha brahmanas they follow the rules and regulations but they don’t have devotion. So what makes the difference if I follow the rules but I don’t have devotion. Won’t we develop devotion by following the rules and regulations consistently?  

Guru maharaj: They follow the rules which are given in certain scriptures, so that they can get good karma. So that is why they can enjoy material life. They don’t actually want to serve Krishna, and they don’t read or accept the vaishnava shaastras. So like in South...

Question: Dearmost guru maharaj, when bhakti yoga is the ultimate and topmost process, why is it kept rare/confidential? And why Lord Gauranga is gupt avatar if He is known in all the universes? Then all conditioned souls can easily be delivered but why He is rare?  

Guru maharaj: Lord Krishna goes to every universe. Sometimes after Krishna Lord Caitanya comes. So I would assume that He visits every universe, since Krishna does. But He doesn’t visit every day of Brahma. Sometimes. You see, most people they pray to God to give them...
