уважаемый шрила бхакти канан гири махарадж. примите мои смиренные поклоны и добрые пожелания. некоторое время назад я познакомился с концепцией шчсм. особенно меня впечатлила идея исключительной преданности, о которой я услышал в лекциях шрилы гуру махараджа. нет никаких сомнений, что шрила гурудэв – истинный наследник этой идеи. здравомыслие мне подсказывает, что вы единственный ачарья шчсм, кто достойно 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...

Srila Giri Maharaja “I Want to Be Utilized for His Cause”

SSM - BKG Sannyasa

Date: 2/12/16

Dear Srimati Krishangi Devi,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes.

As I have told you many times, the information contained on our website scsmathglobal.com is sufficient to answer all questions about Krishna Consciousness, if you will utilize it properly. How that is done has been explained repeatedly from many angles of vision by me and by the acharyas in the line of Sri Chaitanya Saraswati (the spiritual succession of Sri Krishna Chaitanya that is connected with Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura).

One must approach their gurudeva seeking spiritual wealth via the medium of pranipata, pariprashna and seva. It is a very simple process, as explained here by Srila Sridhara Maharaja:

tad viddhi pranipatena
pariprasnena sevaya

Sriman Jagadananda das “Our Spiritual Master, Our Guru”

Jagadananda das

All glories to my spiritual masters, Srila B.K. Giri Maharaja, Srila Govinda Maharaja, Srila Sridhara Maharaja and Srila Swami Maharaja.

Please accept my most humble obeisances.

We have all heard the popular saying “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” I’m not certain of the roots of this cliche, but it is one that has been repeated many times and is so commonplace most of its original meaning is lost. However, this is a powerful statement.

In  Elevation to Krsna Consciousness by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, we find the following in chapter six entitled “Taking to Krsna Consciousness”:

“If we are sincere, we will get a sincere spiritual master by the grace of Kṛṣṇa. If, however, we want to be cheated, Kṛṣṇa will send us a cheater, and Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “At Each Such Juncture…We Become Stronger”

BKG_CA_1996

Date: 1/27/16

Dear Sriman Dayardra Nitai dasa,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes.

I am very happy to hear you are engaging in sankirtana each week with at least one other person. You are acting as the expeditionary leader of one of our outposts in the new frontier known as Altoona, Pennsylvania. Such an adventure dictates that you first create a beachhead where you marshall men and supplies. As you gather strength you will be able to take more and more territory for the service of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga. So, first make yourself strong with perfect faith in the chanting of the Maha Mantra, avoiding the ten offenses and following the four regulative principals. As your strength and abilities increase, enlist as many as possible to help you, and gradually expand. pṛthivīte āche Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “Without…the Guru, the Disciple is Nowhere”

BKG-w.-SGM-Mos.-2001,-102-0240_IMG

Dear ____________ ,

Please accept my blessings.

Your view, as expressed through your so-called questions, is mundane. I cannot have a mundane relationship with my disciples. If you want to have a spiritual relationship with me then you must follow the spiritual path:

Bg 4.34

tad viddhi praṇipātena paripraśnena sevayā upadekṣyanti te jñānaṁ jñāninas tattva-darśinaḥ

Word for word: tat — that knowledge of different sacrifices; viddhi — try to understand; praṇipātena — by approaching a spiritual master; paripraśnena — by submissive inquiries; sevayā — by the rendering of service; upadekṣyanti — they will initiate; te — you; jñānam — into knowledge; jñāninaḥ — the self-realized; tattva — of the truth; darśinaḥ — seers.

Translation: Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized souls can impart knowledge unto you because they have seen the truth.

and:

yasya deve para bhaktir yatha deve tatha gurau tasyaite kathita hy arthah prakasante mahatmanah

"The key to success in spiritual life is unflinching devotion to both the spiritual master and Krsna. To those great souls who have full faith in both Krsna and the spiritual master, the inner meaning of the scriptures is fully revealed."

Verses such as those above describe the spiritual path to spiritual perfection. If you are really searching for Sri Krishna, there is no choice but to follow the directions given above, as I have continuously instructed you to do.
