Simplicity means you can tell the truth even to an enemy

"Normally people in ignorance, when you preach to give them knowledge, they become angry. One of the factors of knowledge is known as simplicity. Simplicity means that you can tell the truth even to an enemy with straight forwardness and without duplicity. Like in...

Question: Hare Krsna guru maharaj. When we are trying to preach Krsna consciousness to others, in the process there is a chance that we get affected by recognition and a devotee gets caught in that position of fame and gets envious of other devotees. How should one do preaching without falling in these traps?

Guru maharaj: Lord Caitanya taught us that we should take out the weeds in our devotional service. Nisidachar, kuti nati, jiva himsa, labh, puja, pratishastasha joto upashako golo. Breaking the regulative principles, political dealings, being envious against others,...

Question: What is the importance of initiation and after initiation how do we serve guru and Krsna?

Guru maharaj: Initiation is the beginning of our spiritual life. We shouldn’t expect that someone after initiation is very advanced. Initiation is called the spiritual birth. So if you want to remain unborn, then don’t take initiation. But if you want to be born, then...

Question: PAMHO, AGTSP! How could we please you guru maharaj?

Guru maharaj: I asked this question to Srila Prabhupada. He said, I am very pleased if I see my disciples develop love of Krsna. Maybe that is a future goal, but we should try for that. And I am very pleased when I see the devotees trying very hard to spread the...

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...

સરળતાનો અર્થ એ છે કે તમે દુશ્મનને પણ સત્ય કહી શકો છો

"સામાન્ય રીતે અજ્ઞાનતામાં લોકો, જ્યારે તમે તેઓને જ્ઞાન આપવા માટે ઉપદેશ આપતા હો ત્યારે તેઓ ગુસ્સે થઈ જાય છે. જ્ઞાનના પરિબળોમાં એક સરળતા તરીકે ઓળખાય છે. સરળતાનો અર્થ એ છે કે તમે દુશ્મનને પણ સ્પષ્ટવાદીતાથી અને દ્વિભાવ વિના સત્ય કહી શકો છો. જડ ભારતના કિસ્સામાં, તેઓ જીવનની...

ભગવાનને તેમના મૂળરૂપે સ્વીકારો

"એવા ધર્મનો શું ઉપયોગ કે જે ભગવાનને તેમના મૂળરૂપે સ્વીકારે નહીં? પરંતુ મોટાભાગના કિસ્સાઓમાં, આજે લોકો જે ધર્મને સમજે છે, જેઓ મૂળરૂપે શુદ્ધ હતા તેમ છતાં, અસંખ્ય ગેરસમજણોને લીધે, તેઓ પણ વિકૃત રીતે સમજી રહ્યા છે." શ્રી શ્રીમદ્ જયપતાકા સ્વામી ૨૧ જાન્યુઆરી,...

દરેકમાં દિવ્ય ચિનગારી છે

"જ્યારે આપણે વિચારીએ છીએ કે દરેકમાં દિવ્ય ચિનગારી છે, દરેકમાં પરમાત્મા છે અને તેઓ સર્વ શુદ્ધ શાશ્વત આત્મા છે, ત્યારે તમને લાગે છે કે તમે તેમને મદદ કરવા માંગો છો. તેઓ શા માટે પીડાય છે? શા માટે તેઓએ આ બધાંથી વારંવાર પસાર થવું જોઈએ? " શ્રી શ્રીમદ્ જયપતાકા સ્વામી ૧૨...

માત્ર આપણા મનને મગ્ન કરી દો…

"આપણે માત્ર આપણા મનને ગુરુના, વૈષ્ણવોના ચરણ કમળના મગ્ન કરી લેવા માગીએ છીએ. તેઓ શુદ્ધ છે, તેઓ ભવ્યતાથી ભરપૂર છે કારણ કે તેમાં કૃષ્ણની કૃપા અને આશિર્વાદની ખાસ ગુણવત્તા છે." શ્રી શ્રીમદ્ જયપતાકા સ્વામી ૧૦ જૂન, ૧૯૮૧ સેન્ટ લૂઇસ,...

આપણે સમુદ્રના મધ્યમાં છીએ

"આપણે માયાના સમુદ્રની મધ્યમાં છીએ અને આપણે માયાના મોજા પર તરી રહ્યા છીએ. વિવિધ પ્રકારના મોજા, ભૌતિક પરિસ્થિતિઓ, ભૌતિક આકર્ષણો, ભૌતિક સુખની સમાન છે, પરંતુ જેવો મનુષ્ય તરંગ દ્વારા ઉન્નત થાય છે, આગલી મિનિટમાં જ તેને મોજા દ્વારા નીચે ફેંકી દેવામાં આવે છે, આ રીતે આપણને...

સમજણ ત્યારે આવે છે જ્યારે તેઓ હરે કૃષ્ણનો જપ કરે છે

"તમે કૃષ્ણ ભાવનામૃત વિશે કોઈને પ્રચાર કરવાની કોશિશ કરો છો - પરંતુ જ્યાં સુધી તેઓ હરે કૃષ્ણનો જપ કરતા નથી, ત્યાં સુધી તેમના માટે વાસ્તવમાં તે સમજી શકવું અશક્ય છે કે તમે શું વાત કરો છો. સૈદ્ધાંતિક રીતે કેટલાક લોકો વિચાર પ્રાપ્ત કરવામાં વધુ સક્ષમ હોઈ શકે છે, અને અન્ય,...

જે.પી.એસ. ઑફિસ તરફથી મહત્વપૂર્ણ સંદેશ

ગુરુ મહારાજની ઈચ્છા મુજબ જે.પી.એસ. ઑફિસ ડેટાબેઝને અપડેટ અને વ્યવસ્થિત કરવાનો પ્રયાસ કરી રહી છે જેથી અમે સંબંધિત સુધારેલ ડેટા મેળવી શકીએ જે ગુરુ મહારાજને શિષ્યો સાથે જોડાવા અને ઇ-કેર સિસ્ટમ બનાવવા માટે મદદ કરી શકે. કૃપા કરીને અપડેટ કરવા માટે નીચેની લિંકને ક્લિક કરો:...

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,...

सरलता का मतलब है कि आप दुश्मन को भी सत्य कह सकते हैं

"आम तौर पर अज्ञानता में लोग, जब आप उन्हें ज्ञान देने के लिए उपदेश देते हैं, तो वे क्रोधित हो जाते हैं। ज्ञान के कारकों में से एक को सरलता के रूप में जाना जाता है। सरलता का अर्थ है कि आप किसी दुश्मन को भी स्पष्टवादितासे और बिना द्वैधता के सत्य कह सकते हैं। जड भारत के...

भगवान को जैसे वे है वैसे स्वीकार करो

"एक धर्म का क्या उपयोग है जो भगवान को जैसे वे है वैसे स्वीकार नहीं करता? लेकिन अधिकांश मामलों में, आज लोग जिस धर्म को समझ रहे हैं, यहां तक ​​कि जो मूल रूप से शुद्ध है, इतनी गलत व्याख्याओं के कारण, वे भी विकृत तरीके से समझ रहे हैं।" श्री श्रीमद् जयपताका स्वामी २१...

सभी में दिव्य चिंगारी है

“जब हम सोचते हैं कि सभी में दिव्य चिंगारी है, सभी में परमात्मा है और वे सभी शुद्ध शाश्वत आत्माएं हैं तो आपको लगेगा कि आप उनकी मदद करना चाहते हैं। उन्हें क्यों सहना चाहिए? उन्हें बार-बार इन सबसे क्यों गुजरना चाहिए? श्री श्रीमद् जयपताका स्वामी १२ फरवरी, २०११...

केवल हमारे मन को अंतर्लिन करें…

"हम केवल अपने मन को गुरु के, वैष्णवों के चरण कमलों में अंतर्लिन करना चाहते हैं। वे शुभ हैं, वे भव्यता से सभर हैं क्योंकि उनमें कृष्ण की कृपा और आशीर्वाद की विशेष गुणवत्ता है।" श्री श्रीमद् जयपताका स्वामी १० जून १९८१ सेंट लुइस,...

हम सागर के बीच में हैं

"हम माया के सागर के बीच में हैं और हम माया की लहरों पर तैर रहे हैं। विभिन्न प्रकार की लहरें विभिन्न प्रकार की भौतिक स्थितियाँ, भौतिक प्रलोभन, भौतिक सुखों की तरह हैं, लेकिन जैसे ही मनुष्य लहर के द्वारा उपर उठता है, अगले मिनट में वह लहर द्वारा नीचे फेंक दिया जाता है, इस...

समझ तब आती है जब वे हरे कृष्ण का जप करते हैं

"आप कृष्ण भावनामृत के बारे में किसी को उपदेश देने की कोशिश करते हैं - लेकिन जब तक वे हरे कृष्ण का जप नहीं करते हैं, तब तक उनके लिए वास्तव में यह समझना असंभव है कि आप किस बारे में बात कर रहे हैं। सैद्धांतिक रूप से कुछ लोग विचार प्राप्त करने में अधिक निपुण हो सकते हैं,...

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,...

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...
