It is difficult to find someone from the West that both understands and can elegantly express the theory behind an Eastern mystical tradition. It is even more difficult to find a modern mystic. In Swami Tripurari we have both: a traditional mystic who can articulate the teachings of an ancient spiritual tradition. A compelling speaker, to hear him and be in his presence is itself a spiritual experience. Swami Tripurari met his initiating guru, Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, in t ...

We heard how it was Radha Banbihari’s appearance day. Ten thousand miles away, they were and she had never been separated from them like this on this holy day, in very ill health, in a hospital in Bombay, Bhaktivedanta. But in her mind, with love and devotion and she included so many other young ladies in this seva, they were making preparations in…
 
Yamuna Devi was here and it was the greeting of the deities’ time and we were all sitting in front of the doors and the doors opened. Just as the doors opened, the electricity went out. So Govindam ädi-puruñaà didn’t play because there was no electricity. So, everyone looked at Yamuna Devi and I asked her please you chant, she said no, no and every…
 
Yamuna Devi, in Prabhupada’s service wrote the most incredible cook book in the history of Brahma’s creation. I think it was about eight hundred pages and it’s for the secular audience and she specifically glorifying Srila Prabhupada constantly. Who is Prabhupada? The nature of the Guru Disciple relationship and how Prabhupada you know taught her a…
 
Srila Prabhupada was asking why she wasn’t there? If she asked Prabhupada’s permission to sit in the front, it seems quite obvious he would have said, yes. But she didn’t because she understood from his silence that there were just certain etiquettes that people were concerned with around and she willingly accepted Prabhupada’s mission, Prabhupada’…
 
Yamuna told this beautiful instruction that Prabhupada gave, if you do not teach other people to know what you did, what you have learned, then you will become proud. And I heard Yamuna Devi repeat these things so many times over the years because she understood this is so important and she lived by it absolutely and it is crucial to our spiritual …

The song Govindam ädi-puruñaà and the album it was one of the biggest selling record albums in all of Europe. And at the time Srila Prabhupada was in Los Angeles, Srila Prabhupada wanted to hear the album specially Govindam in the L.A temple but the leaders they refused to play it because it was sung by a female and the brahmacaris might get offend…
 
When they were living with John Lennon and Gorge Harrison was becoming so serious about Krishna consciousness. Gorge heard them chanting and he was so enchanted by the chanting that he said you should make a record. So, they make a single forty five hour rpm record of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra and that went into the public. It was a sensational h…

And how she describes her first meeting with Srila Prabhupada, he was distributing prasad to some brahmacari’s or whatever they were in those days.

And he was serving the Krishna prasad and she was on a very very macrobiot…
 
Later on of course, I lived in Vrindavan and that is where I accepted the path of bhakti as my life and soul. I accepted Radha Krishna as the ultimate worshipable lords of my life and I accepted in my heart of hearts, Srila Prabhupada as my spiritual master who I wanted to dedicate my body, mind, life and words, everything to assist him. But I had …

God is mine with the higher understanding that God is everyone’s and inclusiveness and exclusiveness together creates a beautiful, loving community of human beings. Otherwise you know if we are just so inclusive that we lose appreciation for our own rue identity. And the specialness of wha…

then Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu revealed to Ramananda Ray, His true essence. Ramananda Ray was so humble, so humble, he said that Lord Chaitanya was praising him for giving Him so much nectar, and Ramananda Ray said, "I am just a parrot, I am just repeating what You make me to speak.

A little later in his life, he began his studies. He was given the sacred threads. And what a brilliant scholar he became! But his exclusive thirst was to study the scriptures. At that time when he was just a young boy, that great associate of Lord Caitanya, Narahari Sarakar, came from Srikhanda and met Srinivas in Jajigram. And he loved him like a…
 
Just outside of Puri while they were lamenting in this way; they both simultaneously had a vision. In that vision, they saw a beautiful young boy who had a dark complexion like a rain cloud.
