How Strict We Must Be

2011 62 我们必须达到怎样的严格程度


While a guest of the King of Kasimbazar for several days in March of 1912, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura ate nothing but one tulasi leaf because he considered the king’s associates to be pseudo-spiritual cheaters. During that visit he gave a lecture wherein he gave the following instruction:



“The activities of eating, sleeping, washing and the like are to be done far from the public eye.”



After his lecture the organizers banned him from speaking again. Hours later Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura left in the middle of the night, without even informing the king.




Memorable Moments




Did a wonderful program with Radhanath Swami last night in the Seattle temple. We both spoke and led kirtan. The temple room was packed. So nice to do such events along with godbrothers. This morning we do another program together and then take prasadam at a devotees home. Memorable moments.

“For those who have no devotion to the lotus feet of Yasoda’s son (Krsna), and have neither attachment nor taste for discussing the dear qualities of gopis like Sri Radha; for those who never lend a respectful ear to the delectable topics of Krsna’s pastimes – for them the mrdanga in the kirtana simply resounds, “dhik tam, dhik tam, dhig etan” ie: “To hell with this one, to hell with that one – to hell with all of them!”

对雅首达之子奎师那的莲花足没有奉爱之情的人; 对讨论像圣茹阿达这样的牧牛姑娘的可贵品质既不依附也没有品味的人;对那些从来没有愿望聆听奎师那令人向往的美丽逍遥的人——对于这些人,在克伊尔坦中敲击的密当嘎鼓仅仅回响着这样的声音:“dhik tam, dhik tam, dhig etan” ie:“让这个去见鬼吧,让那个去见鬼吧,让这一切都去见鬼吧!


yesam srimad yasoda suta pada kamale nasti bhaktir naranam
yesam abhira kanya priya guna kathane nanurakta rasajna |
yesam sri krsna lila sravana rasa katha naiva karnadaro ‘pi
dhik tam dhik tam dhig etan kathayati satatam kirtana stho mrdangah ||

[Traditional Wisdom](传统智慧)



In Preparation for Pandava Nirjala Ekadasi



“Hear it doubtlessly my son, what Lord Kesava, who beholds a club, disk, conch shell and lotus flower in hand, once told me, ‘The merits achieved by fasting on all Ekadasi’s in a year can verily be obtained by fasting on this Nirjala Ekadasi.’”



 [Hari bhakti Vilasa, 15:25, refering to a quote from the Padma Purana wherein Vedavyasa is speaking to Bhima]



Pandava Nirjala Ekadasi and Preaching



Prabhupada: [On] Ekadasi, simply you should chant. No other business. Nirjala!



Tamal Krsna Maharaja: No preaching work? Should they go out for preaching?



Prabhupada: No, those who are preaching, (it’s) not for them… A preacher is so exalted. He hasn’t got to follow any regulation. If one is busy in preaching work that is first-class. Madhava Maharaja, when he was a brahmacari, his name was Hayagriva. So he was to go somewhere. But he was sick. Guru Maharaja was informed that he was sick and that, “Today is ekadasi. He cannot take his regular meals.” So Guru Maharaja said, “No. Let him take immediately meals and go.”



Revatinandana: For preaching.



 [Srila Prabhupada room conversation]





“Appreciating the Power of the Holy Name” – Preparing for Pandava Nirjala Ekadasi

610 感激圣名的力量,为潘达瓦尼尔佳拉爱卡达西做准备


“The name of Krishna on the lips of the Supreme Lord [Sri Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu] had the power of making all persons who heard realize the Truth of whom they had been told by the scriptures. This was a most marvelous experience. In this Iron Age it is only the name Krishna appearing on the lips of a bonafide sadhu who can lift the conditioned soul to the plane of the Absolute. As a matter of fact, even the scriptures also can only faintly express the Personality of Godhead. The mere study of the scriptures can convey no full knowledge of the Absolute as a substantive entity, but the name Krishna has power to put a person on the Absolute plane and endow the words of the revealed scriptures with their living meaning.”



[Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati, in the Harmonist]




The Real Benefit: Promotion Back Home – Back to Godhead

611 实际的收益:提升至回归家园回归神首

“Oh Bhima, Lord Sri Krishna has said that whoever observes this Ekadasi should take a holy bath, give charity to a worthy person, chant the Lord’s Holy names on a japa beads, and perform some kind of recommended sacrifice, for by doing these things on this day one receives imperishable benefits. There is no need to perform any other kind of religious duty. Observance of this Ekadasi fast alone promotes one to the supreme abode of Sri Visnu. Oh best of the Kurus, if one donates gold, cloth, or anything else on this day, the merit one obtains is imperishable.”


[Srila Vyasadeva to Bhima, from the Brahma-vaivarta purana on the merits of Pandava-nirjala ekadasi]

(摘自Brahma-vaivarta purana,之潘达瓦-尼尔佳拉爱卡达西的美德,圣维亚萨戴瓦对彼玛讲述的话)



This Amazing Ekadasi!



“Furthermore, O best of beings (Bhima), any man or woman who observes this fast properly and worships the Supreme Lord Jalsayi (He who sleeps on the water), and who on the next day satisfies a qualified brahmana with nice sweets and a donation of cows and money – such a person certainly pleases the Supreme Lord Vasudeva, so much so that one hundred previous generations in his family undoubtedly go to the Supreme Lord’s abode, even though they may have been very sinful, of bad character, and guilty of suicide, etc. Indeed, one who observes this amazing Ekadasi rides on a glorious celestial airplane (vimana) to the Lord’s abode.



[Srila Vyasadeva to Bhima, in Brahma-vaivarta Purana]

(摘自Brahma-vaivarta purana,圣维亚萨戴瓦对彼玛讲述的话)    





From Impersonalism to Devotion!



“Commuters on the path of impersonal liberation worshipped us, as we were situated comfortably on the throne of one who is called atmarama, a person who takes delight only in the self. Yet some rascal lover of the gopis forcibly turned us into His maidservants.


[Sri Bilvamangala Thakura, quoted in Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, 3.1.44]



To Gain These Benefits



“Oh tiger among men, whoever fasts on this Ekadasi truly becomes a great person and achieves all manner of opulence and wealth, grains, strength, and health. And at the fearful moment of death, the terrible Yamadutas, whose complexions are yellow and black and who brandish huge maces and twirl mystic pasha ropes in the air for binding their victims, will refuse to approach him. Rather, such a faithful soul will at once be taken to the supreme abode of Lord Visnu by the Visnu-dutas, whose transcendentally beautiful forms are clothed in gorgeous yellowish garments and who each hold a disk, club, conch and lotus in their four hands, resembling Lord Visnu. It is to gain all these benefits that one should certainly fast on this very auspicious and important Ekadasi, even from water.”


[Srila Vyasadeva to Bhima in the Brahma- vaivarta Purana: explaining some of the benefits of observing Pandava Nirjala Ekadasi]





The Polish Summer Festival Tour Is just Days Away!.

613 波兰夏季节日旅行指日可待!


"Who will come, O brothers and sisters? At the bathing place of my Lord Gauranga, a boat is waiting, free of charge. The boat of the Holy Name, it is. Everyone is welcome, without restriction: the lame, the blind, the distressed. All are welcome, without exception."



 [ Srila Locana Das Thakura ]




"Was He Always Smiling Too?".

613 他也总是微笑吗?


This afternoon I was sitting on the grass in a park chanting japa when a young man came by jogging. He glanced over at me as he ran by. Minutes later he came jogging back in the opposite direction and looked at me again.  Twenty meters down the path he stopped, turned around, and came back to where I was sitting. 

今天下午我坐在公园的草坪上念诵,一个年轻人在附近慢跑, 每当他经过我这里的时候,他都会朝我这边看看,几分钟后,他从另一个方向经过这里,他又朝我这个方向张望了一下。沿着小路跑了20左右,他停了下来,又跑了回来,来到我坐的地方。


"Every morning I see you sitting here with a smile on your face." he said.  "You seem to content. What is your secret?"



"It's no secret" I said, "I'm chanting God's names on these beads. He is the reservoir of all pleasure."



"I see," he said, looking intently at my beads. "Who taught you this anyway?"



"My spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada." I said.



"Was he always smiling too?" he asked.



"Oh yes he was," I said. "It works for everyone".



"Interesting" he said. "Thank you very much!"



"You are most welcome." I said.



The young man then turned and continued with his jog throughout the park. 



"You are happy because you are chanting, dancing, reading Srimad-Bhagavatam and all the books. If you do these things regularly, then your life is a success. Anyone who chants and follows the rules and regulations, where is there room for anxiety for him?"



[ Srila Prabhupada letter to Satsvarupa, Johannesburg, 21 October, 1975 ]






Keep Chanting after Pandava Nirjala Ekadasi



 “O Brothers! Please constantly chant the holy names of Hari. If you do so, I will take the responsibility to deliver you from the ocean of material existence!”



[Sri Nityanandastakam, by Srila Vrindavana dasa Thakura]

《圣尼提阿南达阿斯塔卡姆》 ,温达文·达斯·塔库尔


“I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to Your name, O most high!”


[Psalm 9:2]《赞美诗》9.2


“The most beautiful names belong to Allah (God): so call on Him by them.”


[Koran 7:180]可兰经7180


All who sincerely call upon My name will come to me after death, and I will take them to Paradise


[Vows of Amida Buddha] (阿弥陀佛的大愿)



Even A Glimpse



“In religion, India is the only millionaire – the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined.”



[Mark Twain]马克吐温



A Fruitful Soul – More From Mark Twain

615 丰硕的心灵世界—来自马克吐温更多的至理名言


“India had the start of the whole world in the beginning of things. She had the first civilization; she had the first accumulation of material wealth; she was populous with deep thinkers and subtle intellects; she had mines, and woods, and a fruitful soul.”



[Mark Twain, American author and humorist, 1835 – 1910]




The Utmost Necessity



The dates for our next ‘Magic of India’ festival tour in Brazil have been confirmed for October 1 – November 7, 2011. Once again, we will flood Brazil with the nectar of the holy names on a grand scale. But it means for the first time in many years I won’t be in Vrindavan for Kartika. Though I will miss Vrindavan terribly, preaching is always the utmost necessity. I will serve and meditate on Vrindavan from a distance, and try to attract as many fallen souls as possible to the shelter of that transcendental abode.



“He who yearns to attain the sweetness of pure love in Vrindavan, but by destiny is forced to live elsewhere, laments and always remembers Vrindavan, beautiful with splendid groves where Sri Sri Radhika Krishna enjoy pastimes. He meditates on entering Vrindavan and thinks, ‘Now I am serving the divine couple.’”



[Srila Prabodhananda Sarasvati, Sri Vrindavan Mahimamrta, Sataka 1, text 75]

(圣帕博达南达·萨如阿斯瓦提,圣地温达文的甘露,Sataka 1, 诗节75)



12 days and Counting!



Our Polish summer festival tour begins on June 28. It will be the biggest and longest festival tour we have ever held; 48 festivals in all, throughout July and August. Three hundred devotees from around the world will be arriving in Warsaw over the next fews days to begin preparations. My greatest joy in life is to offer the results of these great yajnas to the lotus feet of my spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada. I live only for this. In preparation for the summer festivals, I meditate on his instructions:



“I am very glad to hear how our festival program is going on so nicely in Germany. These festivals will be successful all over the world. As GBC member it is your duty to carefully make a broad program for implementing Krsna Consciousness in every sphere of life, in this way we will become respected as the most important members of human society.



[Letter to to Hamsaduta das, 1973]



From the Bible in My Hotel Room

619 我酒店房间里的圣经


“I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.”


[Psalm 69:30]

赞美诗 69:30
