How to get Lord Caitanya’s mercy!
Mukutesvara replied to kiranasa's topic in The Hare Krishna ForumHi kiranasa, I agree, the real way to get Lord Caitanya's mercy is by following his instructions. Thankfully He has given us complete instructions so that at whatever stage of consciousness we are at, we can become elevated to the highest platform of pure love of God, where we will have never-ending, ever-fresh experiences of ecstatic transcendental love. Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu is the culmination of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī's life's work assimilating Lord Caitanya’s instructions, systematically presenting them in writing, working with the other Gosvāmīs of Vṛndāvana and associates of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu to bring His ecstatic Kṛṣṇa-bhakti movement to the world. Unfortunately, many devotees get stuck at the platform of Vaidhi bhakti, because existing religious organizations promoting bhakti do not present nor implement the complete path of bhakti, but Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu gives complete instruction for attaining the higher stages. It is available in English for free (I posted a link in the recommended website forums and there is also a link in my profile). Please feel free to ask any questions, and let me know what you think, Mukuteśvara dāsa
Bhakti Master Class
Mukutesvara posted a topic in Recommended WebsitesBhakti Master Class?The Complete Teaching of Devotional Service The purpose of this site is to share the profound transcendental insights of uttama-bhakti from Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu with the worldwide devotee community. We have no interest in recruiting you or collecting donations. Our interest is presenting the complete Absolute Truth at the highest level of pure devotion, along with the process to realize it for yourself. The esoteric transcendental scripture Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu emanates from the heart and mind of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī heard it from the Lord for ten days on the bank of the Gaṅgā at Daśāśvamedha-ghāṭa in Prayāga. The complete Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu is available in English. This authoritative original text can help us correct our misunderstandings and realize substantial progress in rasa-tattva. Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu expertly tutors us in the real meaning and spirit of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. This esoteric spiritual knowledge is not available anywhere else. Therefore, without a deep understanding of Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, our knowledge of bhakti is insufficient to attain the higher stages of the path chalked out by Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Kṛṣṇa consciousness is more than a religion—it is a transformation of consciousness and meaning from the mundane to the transcendental ontological platform. Once we recognize this, then we easily overcome anārthas (polluted desires in the heart)—even subtle ones like pratiṣṭhā (attachment to religious honor and position)—and attain the stage of bhāva-bhakti (ecstatic pure devotional service described in the bhakti-śāstras like Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam). Śrī Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu reveals all the stages of spiritual progress, from ordinary material consciousness through the highest perfection of prema-bhakti. Therefore every devotee who sincerely wants to attain the highest perfectional stage of Kṛṣṇa consciousness must study this great transcendental literature. Please check out the site and let us know what you think.
