Radhastami

2 months, 2 weeks ago by Ramananda in Calendar Development

On Thursday, September 5, 2019, the appearance day of Srimati Radharani will be celebrated in Hawaii.

On that day His Holiness Hanumatpresaka Swami will give a special class on Her divine person. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura explains the unique position of Sri Radha in relationship to Nityananda Prabhu in an article entitled “Associates of Sri Caitanya,” from the book “Sri Kathamrita.”

There it is explained that the guru is a representative of Sri Nityananda Prabhu, whose distinctive function is to guide the jiva back to the service of Sri Krishna. However, Nityananda Prabhu does not directly instruct the soul in the confidential service of Krishna. It is Srimati Radhika Herself who is the guruvi of the inner circle of the servants of Krishna.

Srimati Radharani accepts the offer of service of only those souls who are specially favored by Nityananda and are deemed by Him to be fit for Her service. There is, therefore, a most intimate relationship between the function of Nityananda as the principle of guru-tattva and that of Srimati Radharani.

The function is supplementary in the sense that only by the guru’s grace can we hope to qualify for the service of the Lord, and it is inclusive in that by the service of guru, the representative of Nityananda, one can approach Srimati Radharani. Therefore, it is the guru who admits one to the service of Sri Krishna. 

In the Caitanya Caritamrita the very first verse describes 6-different manifestation of the Supreme Lord. The last manifestation is that of “shakti,” or divine power. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta describes this divine power as the Predominated Moiety [portion] of the Divinity, who is the Predominating Whole. In other words, Sri Radha is in fact non-different from Sri Krishna, the Supreme Predominator. They are one yet separated eternally, just as men and women are of the same species and are therefore one (man cannot exist without women), yet they are very different.

Sri Radhika is the predominated Counter-Whole of Sri Krishna. Sri Radhika has Her duplicates and constituents who are also of the nature of plenary powers of the Divinity. This means some are Her direct expansions and others are separated personal assistants, who can be jivas. She also directly serves Sri Krishna in infinite ways in Her countless distinctive plenary and secondary forms.

Please join us this Thursday to hear more of these divine topics.

HpS - Wow. If we just read what Ramananda Das wrote that will be enough! This Hawaii Sanga has such nice level of scholarship, devotion and artistry!

AGTSP, PAMHO

HARE KRISHNA GURU MAHARAJ

I hope you are VERY well. First of all I want to thank your association, your patience and tolerance in your last visit to BsAs. Your great service and association left a very good result for all the devotees. It is incredible to see how you get to communicate with each one and always finding Best of all, I'm sorry for not being able to help you more in your preaching, I feel very useless. I still can't find my way of preaching and I don't have a very interesting background to say. Anyway I will continue to strive to reach the standard of a good disciple. 

Yapa has been very good this week 25/round minimun every day. When Mangala Aratik starts y already have chanted the 16..(this saintly influence is very nice) .

Right now I am in Vrindavan and just today I went to pray to the Samadhi of Sri Rupa Goswami where 8 years ago I had also prayed strongly for the mercy of becoming a devotee. Today I see that my prayer has not changed and every day I feel less devotee but I will continue to pray. This first week in Vrindavan has been very intense, Janmastami was crazy the deities were changed clothes 5 times (very beautyfull) and SP Vyasa puja was very nice. All this week I was staying in Bhakti Damodara Swami asram doing some services and taking his association. I always pray to find advanced devotees to serve and learn.

 I already talked to the Prabhu Radha kunda Das of Eco Govardhan mumbai, I told him that I wanted to spend a few days while you were there and he told me that I would have to stay in a apartment and that I would have pay some price, he said that you are already In a room with someone else. Anyway it is still not very sure that I go but I have the desire later I will speak again with the devotee to be more concrete and when I organize to travel to mumbai I will let you know ...

Thank you very much for everything excuse me for anything ..

Nitay Gouranga!!!!!

Your servant ptd

HpS - Paoho. AgtSP. We are so happy to hear from you. We have been trying to communicate by Whasapp and everything. We want to thank you and all the devotees in Argentina for letting us join their Sankirtan and hope it had a lasting effect.

The plans for the content of our visits to GEV and NOIDA are developing slowly. Yes, we are sharing a room with Rama-giri-Dhari Das. Tell Radha-kunda Das that we would be very happy to share the room with three of us if that would be o.k. Eg. a mat on the floor.

Other option is NOIDA. That is in Delhi and Yugala Kishora and Gaura-Gadadhara Devi Dasis wanted to visit from Braja for a night. Maybe others such as Tungavidya Devi Dasi.

Be nice to see each other in India and even you participate in these educational development programs.

Hare Krsna. Respects to Damodara Swaami.
