My dear spiritual daughter,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes in remembrance of my Divine Masters.

I am worried, because you now speak very rarely with me and when you do, only shortly.

It is my fear thet you have become forgetful of me!

Krishna is a cruel master. Because of this, Sriman Mahaprabhu felt neglected by Him and showed the extreme degree of feeling of separation from Krishna. This was to show us how even the best of Krishna’s servants may feel neglected by their Master. Sri Chaitanya Deva also showed us the extreme degree of devotion of Krishna’s servants toward their Loving Lord.

Sri Guru is the manifestation of the mercy of Sri Krishna. But, because he represents Krishna fully, he may sometimes appear to be cruel and Read More...

Dear Sriman Jayanta Krishna dasa.

Please accept my humble obeisances in remembrance of our Divine Masters.

I was hoping you might explain why you are promoting the teachings of the mayavadi, Sri Mahaswamigal, and disappointed that I did not find any satisfactory explanation in your comments.

In an obscure way you are saying it is my fault you took to this practice because, I was not offering good advise lately or not practicing what I preach. Therefore, you wrote to me “Maybe that’s why people feel the need to go and listen somewhere else.”

No, prabhu, that is not the reason.

You regularly offer links to our website. Therein you will find enough material presented by our Sri Guru Varga to satisfy a lifetime of inquiry and study by any serious practitioner in the line of Srila Read More...

A Letter to My Friends: “The secret to popularity.” — Srila Giri Maharaja

A Letter to My Friends (from an email dated August 21, 2014):

My dandavats,

I was trying to figure out who this man is that occupies so much space on Prabhu Jayanta Krishna’s Facebook wall.

When I did, I was surprised to see how popular this man is:

Who is he?

“Detecting a Lie” – An Email Exchange With Srila Giri Maharaja

Dear _______,

You wrote:

I read the Gita and many other books written by men. …  (Karl Marx)

It seems you never tire of reinforcing my points, yet cannot grasp their meaning.

Again you are highly critical of sadhus who you see as nothing more than “men”, who write “books written by men.”

Of course you offer no proof to substantiate your claim that books written by Vaishnava Gurus were written by men and not Krishna, God.

Because you do not know God you have no way of knowing if something was written by Him or was written by someone else.

Is this true or false?

In addition, your argument seems to be Read More...

“Refreshments anyone?”

Our Webmaster, Sriman Gokulananda das

A couple days ago, during the early morning hours I generally use for writing and study, I noticed some anomalies while accessing our website.

Coincidentally, it occurred in the midst of writing an email mentioning the attack to our website that occurred almost exactly a year before (See: Attack on scsmathglobal.com— the evidence. All signs point to Radha Syam and Indra Bandhu.). The subject came up due to its relevance to a vast expansion of the Media Archives on our website that is soon to “materialize” thanks to the dedicated seva of our webmaster extraordinaire, Sriman Gokulananda.

Naturally, when the anomalies occurred, I wondered “Could these be the result of another attack?” The question was quickly followed by “It’s more likely Prabhu Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja “How Much Service is Sri Gurudeva Prepared to Give? There is no limit!”

ssmsgm1950

Dear Sriman — Prabhu,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

> My God how much trouble can Guru withstand on behalf of his disciple!

How much trouble can he withstand? I have not been informed of any limit.

Gurudeva sees his disciples as servants of his guru.

Guru is not the recipient of service, he is the giver of service. He is offering service to his Gurudeva, the disciples of his Gurudeva, to the Vaishnavas, etc.

How much service is Sri Gurudeva prepared to give? There is no limit.

I have personally seen my gurus tolerate so many things; ill health, injury, extremely stressful situations and so on. They never stopped their preaching and guidance. They accepted all these troubles for our benefit and, in some instances, specifically for my benefit. No doubt I was the cause of some Read More...
