  1. many thanks for the photos... a very satysfying reportage of the event.. srila gurudeva ki jaya! sri gaura purnima mahotsava ki jaya!!
  2. oh.. my godbrother from the big apple! hare krishna... accept my obeisances.. jay gurudeva!
  3. suchandra: The question was raised if Srila Puri Maharaja has appointed a successor and how his mission will go on? i know that there's a successor... with some discussions going on (as natural in such situations). But i am out of this.. i like very much some advanced devotees of my gurudeva and i consider them possibile real spiritual masters, tattva darshinah.. i associete with them, taking advices and doing some service, but i do not partecipate so much in the math's life. I am siksa disciple of Srila Paramadvaiti Maharaja and my home is a World Vaishnava Association center (Gurudeva BVPuri Maharaja was one of the founders.. the president is Bhakti Vallabha Tirtha MRJ..) Srila Puri Maharaja is the head of Gaudiya MAth or what ? there's no one gaudya math.. gaudya sampraya is many branches.. iskcon, chaitanya mission (bvpuri mrj), sarasvata gaudya math and so on.. hare krishna!
  4. 2500 vaishnava songs http://www.mahamantra.it/ hare krishna to everyone!!
  5. "I dreamt about my Guru 2 days ago. It was in some house I never been in, strangly had my father in it too. I wanted to ask something of Gurudeva, so He called me over I said in his ear `I want to ask you some question [in my mind I thought and My Raskaldom [to reveal it]. Then the dream ended. Any clues what it could mean? Incites. " please prabhu tell me wich medicine you take to have such effects.. but i think it is mahamantra... the dream's meaning is simple.. you have a strong desire to ask valuable questions to gurudeva and krsna and to surrender your self to them.. in this way you show to be an advanced devotee hare krsna... vancha kalpa
  6. harekrsna prabhu, i apologize to have not remembered to answer to some your emails, but now i cannot avoid to try to help you ad your kind request acharya is not a sectarian word, acharya means "who teachs the behaviour" and "who teachs by behaviour"... so both Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva are acharyas. Our Guru Maharaja many times stated that Srila Prabhupada is an extraordinary saint and He is only a common human . I have heard that He, in Italy, refused to give class and remain in a devotee's home who had not a single picture of Srila Prabhupada: "you cannot make any spiritual advancement if you do not have a place in your house of Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja!!" Do you love Srila Prabhupada? Do you consider Him your saviour? In this way you are adopting the behaviour (achara) taught by our beloved Srila Gurudeva.. are you thinking in the same way of our Guru Maharaja? Well you are executing the instruction of Srila Prabhupada and Krsna who, in Bhagavad Gita as it is, state that it is impossible to advance spiritually without surrendering to a spiritual teacher who is tattva darshinah, who sees the absolute truth, Sri Krsna Bhagavan.. and our Srila Gurudeva Bhakti Vaibhava Puri Goswami Maharaja is a bona fide guru, an uttama vaishnava, an autentic friend of Krsna in Goloka Vrindaban So it is possible to develope a pure love for Prabhupada and Krsna only if we execute Their instruction, not if we superficially praise them, and the instruction is to surrender to a uttama adhikari vaishnava to understand all the whole spiritual reality, Prabhupada and Prabhupada's Books included.. Please do not feel separation between our fathers, in spiritual realm there's no exclusivism and competition, Srila Prabhupada has come in the west with great effort and extraordinary devotion to teach us mainly to surrender to vaishnavas.. if we do it, automatically we'll surrender to Him.. that's my opinion.. i do not see any conflict, i consider impossible to surrender to Prabhupada if i do not surrender to my Guru Maharaja.. let us wait for the opinion of expert devotees, do not be frustrated, until we do not reach the spiritual platform doubts will be forever with us...you are very sincere and you have a great faith in devotees association.. for this reason you are making such important questions here let us wait for the answers of real devotees... harekrsna!!! chant it and be happy!!!

  8. yes.. thanks to srila bhaktivaibhava puri maharaja and thanks to srila bhaktivedanta swami maharaja prabhupada who has brought vrindavan to the western world

  11. why are you saying like that? karthik is simply asking for a little procedural detail. Not "why i sing that song?" but "why we sing that song before srimad bhagavatam lesson?" and the prabhus have answered
  12. prabhupada's mood is " tad viddhi pranipatena. pariprasnena sevaya..." you have simply to accept guidance from someone who's "tattva darshina", one who sees the truth.. krishna if you do like that, even if apparently you will belong to a different institution, you will fulfill the prabhupada's will and you'll realize iskcon in the earth and in your heart other things are details... every guru changes something, or he's not a guru Circumstances changes and teaching changes..the essential thing is to accept the guidance of a pure devotee, there's not much time to live, death can come at any moment, there's only few pure devotees in this world, it is a real offence to let them go without having taken shelter in them imho
  13. ask to me whatever you want, but ask also to other devotees, i am not an authority i don't know if i have understood well.. but i try if you like to chant 64 rounds and you want to chant sri gur pranam and panchatattva mantra less times, or even only before starting to chant i do not find it wrong if you have heard the recordings of srila prabhupada and srila guru maharaja when they chant japa, they do not chant homages and panchattattva mantra at every start of the round so there's no problem for you, if you chant these mantras only at the start, or less than 64 times, if you remain convinced that mahamantra is given to you by guru and gauranga this is my humble opinion (you are a very good devotee if you chant all these rounds.. i do a great effort even to chant 16 of them) hare krishna
