Vyasa Puja Offering From Gokulananda das

Dear Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja,

Dandavat pranams on the day of your appearance.

Srila Govinda Maharaja once said:

Everything depends on the mood of the devotee. Someone may go for collection, someone else may cook, another may clean, but everything depends on the individual’s mood whether it will be karma or bhakti. If someone will follow his Guru’s instructions in a surrendered mood, it will be bhakti, otherwise it will be pious karma. If anyone will follow the instructions of the Scriptures and Guru he will always receive a good result, but that is not necessarily bhakti. It is a big difficulty for everyone if they are not conscious of their purpose. Srila Guru Maharaja always emphasized the word ‘consciousness’-everything is living within Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “”As Their Hearts Melt, the Ocean of Mercy Expands …”

Dear Sriman Jagadananda dasa,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes.

I pray all is well with you and the Math.

If you have time please let me know how you are and how everything at the math is.

By the grace of Sri Guru and Vaishnavas we are continuing our seva to Srila Gurudeva, as our capacity allows. During my life I have been very fortunate to have the association and confidence of faithful devotees who stand as examples of how to proceed along the path of Krishna Consciousness. I am most unworthy of such association and remain in constant awe that, despite my many shortcomings, I continue to be tolerated and accepted as their servant, friend and well-wisher. Standing so far distant from the ocean of causeless mercy of the Lord’s devotees, yet having been touched Read More...

Srila Sridhara Maharaja – “One day Achyutananda interviewed with me and asked some question about the Holy Name, Divine Name, and I replied; and he took notes and “Back to Godhead” sent an article that there is mention of Charaka, Charaka Rshi, the ancient doctor; the medicine of Charaka. His example I quoted there… His opinion about epedemic. He has written a book, that when, in the name of justice, the court pleaders, advocates, they are supposed to help the justice. But when they, themselves, do injustice, Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “Aparadha-bija, The Seed of Offense”

BKG folded hands

Dear Srimati Krishangi Devi,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes.

Nothing you presented is authoritative.

You are not a spiritual authority and Wikipedia is not a spiritual authority. It is foolish to offer the statements of either to support your views. No one will accept them.

At one time you wrote that you “highly respect” Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami, but actually you have become an offender to Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, and his gurus. In fact, you have become an offender to all those in the line of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura.

Because of your offenses you have fallen again into a hellish mentality under the control of maha maya and now consider the mundane to be spiritual and Wikipedia to be an authority on spiritual matters.

The Vedas are spiritual authority. Read More...

Уважаемый ____________,

Пожалуйста, примите мои благословения и добрые пожелания.

Я надеюсь, что ваше здоровье улучшилось.

Много раз я чувствовал, что я был близок к смерти, как вы чувствовали,  когда вы позвонили мне вчера. Мои молитвы в те времена были очень просты: “Мой дорогой Господь Кришна, я знаю, что Ты очень милостив к падшим душам. Я являюсь одним из них. Мой Гурудев очень дорог Тебе и Шримати Радхарани. Хотя я падшая Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja: “Why Are You Contacting Me?”

On July 17, 2015, Sripad Tyagi Maharaja called Srila Giri Maharaja and told him, "I’m working under the direction of Sripada Acharya Maharaja and Sripada Janardana Maharaja."

Dear Sripada Tyagi Maharaja,

Please accept my humble dandavat pranams.

Maharaja, I will try my best to answer all your questions [from email dated: 7/16/15]. I am a servant of the devotees and I am open to everyone, with some special sympathy for the disciples and followers in the line of Srila Govinda Maharaja. Whatever small wealth I have collected belongs to him. I am only a trustee charged with distributing it on his behalf, in accordance with his Divine Will.

For now, I have a couple questions I hope you will answer for me. There are no wrong answers. I would simply like honest ones.

“You are a great preacher and I wish you success. The world is open for you: Russia, America, Ukraine, Africa.” — email to BKG, December 31, 2013.

Srila Giri Maharaja “Connecting the dots…”

The fun continues.

When Sripada Goswami Maharaja uses these dots “…” to indicate something more was written, do you wonder what it might be?

Do you wonder if the dots are used like the letter he posted on his blog “Dear Giri Maharaja…?”

Preceding that letter he announced “Here is the email; unedited, in its entirety.”, but did not include my letter to him, or the ensuing letters that followed, all of which would be necessary to understand the true context of the letter posted by BSG.

In other words, the dots and the letter indicate there is more to the story, but we are to trust him that it is irrelevant or unnecessary.

I would rather trust my readers to make that decision.

I hope by now all of you have read the rest of the letters which I believe are very relevant and are Read More...

Censure of Sripad BK Giri Maharaj
by the Acharya Board of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math

Dear Devotees,
Please accept our humble obeisances and dandabat pranams.

For the past year Sripad Giri Maharaj has conducted a disinformation campaign,
publicly criticizing Srila Acharya Maharaj, and the Acharya Board, established
by Srila Govinda Maharaj. With the hope that he might desist or correct himself,
we have not taken action against him. However, he refuses to stop. We now see
the necessity of protecting our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math family, and openly
express our unanimous disapproval.

During his time as acharya, we would not tolerate that anyone would criticize
