  1. i am wondering this question for a long time. In the Sri Caitanya Saraswata parampara if a aspiring devotee takes diksha from a acarya in the lineage like Srila Prabhupada or Srimad BVN Goswami Maharaj for example, can that person still cherish the works of other acaryas in that lineage who have left their bodies?
  2. I wrote a long reply but somehow there was a error. Thanks for sharing:) ill hit u back when i get back home
  3. Wow, Sri Krsna is so merciful, just by calling his name he takes control. I would guess that means he guides you and protects you and leads you to a Guru who can show a person the deep pathway to divine love.
  4. Ah, Thank you both for the wisdom and knowledge. not having a Gurudeva, im trying to chant naam so by the lords mercy he will send me one.
  5. Dear devotees, Im sure this question may have come up several times,but if you dont mind i would like to re-ask this question so that it may help me personally. I have been reading articles by a Vaishnav Guru who quotes Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur writings about ridding the offenses to the holy name by chanting Nitai Gaura naam mantras. I would like to know what other ways to remove offenses mentioned by the acaryas and shastra. please bash my ignorance with some knowledge:pray:
  6. discovered a temple in Atlanta!!!
  7. What i mean to ask is the teachings of "prevoious"Acharyas as presented in book form? is that also a type of siksha?
  8. Yes your words mean so much to me,by pointing out my misunderstandings i learn so much. I guess it is because i have no personal connections with any devotees,and for that reason i put so much importance of finding a Guru so i can be in proper association. But as you pointed out its not about "shopping" for a guru,i really need to take my time with this. I have 2 more questions now that this has been brought to my attention: 1)can a person who really wants to be a devotee of Sri Sri Radha Krsna chant the mahamantra on tulasi beads even though he hasn;t received initiation? 2) Is the teachings of Acharyas considered siska guru in the sense they instruct one on how to perform proper devotional service?
  9. Yeah i need to really figure everything out.
  10. The reason i proposed Swami Narasingha is because his articles helped me solidify my faith.I also proposed Swami BV Tripurari for that same reason.and I proposed Srila Narayana Maharaj because he is a rasika bhakta. But what i failed to realize is there are more Gurus in the lineage of Saraswata such as Srila B.B. Bodhayan Maharaj, and i feel safe to say that his soft spoken heart felt words attract me. Sonic yogi: thank you for telling me there is no rush, i always have the tendecy to get ahead of myself and become confused.I also first heard the mahamantra from Srila Prabhupada and i beleive my soul is constantly pulling me towards bhakti because of him. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!
  11. The reason im so attracted to the Saraswata parampara, is how Srila Bhaktisiddantha Prabhupada taught that sankirtan was the highest means to attain prema!! It is the same teaching of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu,and thae fact he was a genius:cool: . Sometimes trying to read his written works is mindboggling
  12. I realize how limited i was in the original questions, please excuse this mistake. stonehearted: thank you for that advice!
  13. Ah, thanks for the tips. so how does each Rs equal to us dollars?
