Srila Giri Maharaja “They cannot remove the āchārya.”

Date: 4/22/17

Dear Sriman Devashis dasa,

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

I recently had a conversation with someone who seems to have some knowledge of the internal affairs of Acharya Maharaja’s London Math, of which, you are the president.

I have no right to interfere with such matters. However, as a matter of friendship, I would like to relate some of my thoughts to you.

Whether it is true or not, I do not know, but I heard that due to some improper behavior on the part of Sripada Acharya Maharaja, actually a lengthy history of such behavior, you were considering removing his photo from the parampara on the altar there. I strongly urge you not to take such an action. I base this advice on the following, among other things (emphasis added):

Srila Sridhara Maharaja Ki Jai!

письмо из Киева от самой пожилой преданной, Арундхати.

Dear Sriman Pada Tirtha dasa,

Please accept my blessings and well-wishes and please convey the same to your family and especially my dear disciple Srimati Arundhati Devi dasi.

I was very pleased, satisfied and happy to learn from you about the intense eagerness of Srimati Arundhati Devi to make progress in Krishna consciousness. I am very encouraged to hear such things and very pleased that you have taken the time to write to me about them.

Srimati Arundhati Devi is my disciple, but we see our disciples as representatives of our guru. I take it from your report of her activities that it is a message from my gurus that I should feel such intense desire to understand the direction of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga as she is attempting to understand through her devotional practices. I think you and Read More...

New and updated transcripts for the Srila Sridhara Maharaja Media Archive

Introduction

A few weeks ago we were blessed to receive, from Sriman Paramananda Prabhu (UK), 150 transcripts of Srila Sridhara Maharaja’s audio recordings. His email, notifying me of this auspicious presentation, along with my reply, are attached below.

Most of the transcripts I received are corrected forms of transcripts previously submitted by him and posted on our website. Others are new transcripts. All of them have now been presented in a universal type font making the characters with diacritics much more portable, as they can now be easily converted into a great number of fonts for use in a wide number of digital and print formats and devices.

A recent email sent to Srila Giri Maharaja –

Dear Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

Jai Srila Gurudeva!

Speaking of whom, did you intentionally avoid posting a notice of our observance today (now yesterday) of his disappearance?

To my shame I forgot to post it.

Lilavati Devi reminded me I hadn’t posted it but by then the day was almost over.

I checked if I had posted last year’s observance but it seems I had not done that either.

I am thinking that as well as a bad memory I have a mental block as I do not find it a happy day to remember.

I remarked to Lilavati Devi that I remember it as the day the world went mad and when the good sense, reason and sobriety of prominent devotees who were ordered by the spiritual master to become acharyas was lost due to the influence of illusion Read More...

“Na Hi Gopyaṁ Hi Sadhūnāṁ – Certainly, No Secrets are to be Kept by Saintly Personalities”

An email from Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja to Uddharan dasa –

Dear Sriman Uddharan dasa Adhikari,

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

I hope you will post your excellent email to Sripada Paribrajaka Maharaja, with or without his name. I lean in the direction of including his name because: 1. He is a sannyasi and a guru. As such, his is supposed to be a public life and he should not expect too much in the way of “secrecy”. “na hi gopyaṁ hi sadhūnāṁ— Certainly, no secrets are to be kept by saintly personalities… ”
