All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!! All glories to Guru Maharaj HpS!!
Radha Krsna Ki Jay, Gourananga Mahaprabhu Ki Jay and Goura Bhakta Vrnda Ki Jay.
Dandavat Pranam Guruji Maharaj!
HpS - It is such a grand pleasure to hear from you. We are just returning to Lima from La Paz. In La Paz it is 4km altitude and no air. Wonderful preaching programs. Look at the letter we just posted about India tour! When shall we go to Manipur and the rest?
Please accept our humble obeisances ontu Guruji’s padmacharan that I am continuing reading of Bhagavatam Tenth Canto 2nd Chapter. In the purport of sloka 31 of this chapter it is clearly mentioned that after wandering throughout the universe, a fortunate person within this material world seeks shelter of such a Guru, or acarya, who trains the devotee in the suitable ways to render service according to the circumstances so that the Supreme Personality of Godhead will accept the service. This makes it easier for the candidate to reach the ultimate destination.
Likewise, a neofide bhakta needs Diksa Guruji’s or Shiksha Gurui’s guidance. Our main objective is to serve Sri Krsna after taking permission of Gouranga Mahaprabhu but without the help of Nityananda Prabhu we could not approach directly Sri Gouranga Mahaprabhu and without the help of Srimati Radha Thakurani we could not directly approach Sri Krsna. One more important thing is that without getting personal Sakhi, Manjari we could not enter Brindavan. Then how we will serve Sri Krsna? It is my strong eagerness. Guruji please highlight me in this confusion.
HpS - We personally heard from the lips of Srila Prabhupada when one reporter asked him, "Swamiji, what will happen to your movement when you die", and Srila Prabhupada answered firmly, "I will never die. I will live forever in my books!". So, if you are sincere you can get personal instruction from Srila Prabhupada's books and that will tell you how to get Lord Nityananda, the ant and me as Gurus.
In the song, "Gauranga bolite habe...", CC Adi 7.17, it explains that we can enter Vraja by the mercy of Lord Nityananda but to enter the confidential pastimes of Radha and Krsna within Vraja, more than relations to Gopas or Mother Yasoda, we need the mercy of the Manjaris. We can get thatn through Rupa and Raghunatha and then the same thing is there. We can get that mercy through service to Nectar of Instruction or Nectar of Devotion. Read the books with sincere desire to apply them.
Jitatmana prasantasya... BG ... when we become even Goswami's, control the six pushes, then we get solid inspiration from the Paramatma how to advance.
So, please look at the India Tour post here in the Blog and give us your suggestions. Maybe we pass Gaura-purnima in Manipura.
Yours fallen servant,
