Guru Maharaja: Chitragupta, he’s the record keeper of Yamaraja. What do you now want to say?

Devotee: Does he have some special connection with Paramatma? His recording system is so intricate he must have some connection with Paramatma.

Guru Maharaja: Some sort, because he must have eligibility of recording of reading all the movements in this mundane world. By the vibration, whatever is happening he can record it, his heart automatically, 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 “A Special Time”

Soquel Party

From: B.K. Giri
To: Ratan Krishna das
Date: 3/31/16

Dear Sriman Ratan Krishna dasa,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

It was very kind of you to write to me, expressing your appreciation for my humble attempts to serve Srila Gurudeva, his Mission, his devotees and those caught in the cycle of samsara.

Your visit with the other devotees you mentioned was very enlivening for me as well.

Whenever there appears an intensity to serve the Lord and His devotees, as we noticed among the devotees here at the time you mention, it must be accompanied by a very auspicious sphere of influence that affects all of those within it, or touched by it. Sankirtana, especially as it occurs through preaching the precepts of our Divine lineage, is the key to creating such an auspicious environment.

Great endeavors

Буддха, “кто есть кто?” (Buddha, “Who is who?”) An Email Exchange


Уважаемый Шрила Бхакти Канан Гири Махарадж.
Примите мои смиренные поклоны и добрые пожелания.

Признателен вам за ответ на мой вопрос о Буддха Пурниме.
Именно в такой последовательности, как вы изложили ответ, я и принимал
знание о Господе Буддхе-аватаре.
Но из лекции Шрилы Шридхара Махараджа/о которой вы упомянули в ответе/ я впервые услышал, что есть Буддха-аватар и Буддха-настик/без-
божник/,но в самой лекции не понял кто

Srila Giri Maharaja “All Conceptions of Junior and Senior Lost Their Meaning… “


Date: 3/1/16

Dear Sripada Tyagi Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

Today I became lost in the ocean of jñāna. I was searching for some original materials that would delineate the lineage (parampara) of the other three principal vaishnava sampradayas. The ocean is filled by many tributaries and searching one and then another I happened to come to an old version I have of “Gaudiya Gitanjali” (from about 1986). Wanting to verify the authenticity of its origin & some passages therein, a further search took me to and searching there for “Gaudiya Gitanjali” I found it listed under “Publications Available” in your book Sri Sri Nityananda Mahimamrtam.

I had not read this book previously and thought to take a few moments to get some idea about Read More...

BKG Ukraine

Dear Sripad Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaj,

Please accept our humble obeisances on this most auspicious day.
Lilavati Devi and I are wishing you a very happy birthday and we hope there is some cake for you.

Your friends and servants,

Uddharan dasa & Lilavati Devi dasi

All Glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga,

I am certainly not qualified to say anything to the assembled Devotees, and disciples, what to speak of His Grace, who was the first Westerner to take Sanyasa initiation from Srila Guru Maharaja, BR Shridhar Maharaja.

Sripad Giri Maharaja has persevered in the “Search For Sri Krishna” while so many stalwarts have fallen by the wayside. All glories to him, and I wish him all the best. May Sri Sri Gaur-Nitai shower their Grace upon him.

Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja ki jai!

You Blather on With Your “Remembrance” (An Email Exchange)

Dear Sriman Jonathan,

Well as Govinda Maharaj was about to answer him, the other person who was already formally initiated by Govinda Maharaj interrupted Govinda Maharaj by asking ~ "(Govinda Maharaj, is it alright for a person who is not initiated to ask such a?)" Govinda Maharaj looked a little disdained at this disciple and said~ "before initiation one may ask anything, after initiation your are supposed to just do what i tell you." then He addressed the man.

Yes, you may ask anything.

You asked, I answered; and addressed your questions.

But I asked you nothing, because I don’t consider you an authority on Krishna Consciousness.

And yet you blather on with your “remembrance” of this or that, which you cannot apply in any practical way.

Dandavats Sriman Jonathan,

i have been making inquiries in regard to Srila Prabhupada`s directions for ISKCON Diety Puja. So far i have been quite disappointed with my correspondence with people in position~?~ as2how they seem to have never been personally instructed by Him and also have never heard from anyone that was~?~

I suspect they (“people in position”) are also quite disappointed with you, as I am.

In my opinion you should not be making inquiries into the matter of Deity Puja, nor should anyone respond to your inquiries.

Instruction about Deity Puja is for initiated devotees who get such instruction after receiving gayatri mantra. Without the mantra, received from a guru in a bonafide disciplic succession, there can be no Deity worship.

Therefore, I do not see that

Dear Sriman Jonathan,

My dandavat pranams to you.

How unexpected, and how kind it is that you took the trouble to remember me.

You must still be in Hawaii.

I listened to the audio file which I had not heard before. One portion of Srila Prabhupada speaking, beginning with “The human society cannot anymore be allowed to continue a Godless civilization at the risk of decreasing truthfulness, hygienic principles, forgiveness, and mercifulness.” and extending to:

“If somebody has no sufficient money, it is very hard for him to get justice from the court. And if anyone can simply bluff by so-called advancement of knowledge, he is offered the doctorate degree. If a man is poor, he is at once accepted as non-civilized. If a man is falsely proud, Read More...
