Balaramji, He is the source of all spiritual strength, He is the foundation of faith for all devotees.

In Goloka Vrindavan, we always see in pictures, Krsna always holds His flute. Balaramji always holds plough. This is very significant also. Why does Krsna carry His flute? To simply attract and charm the hearts of all living beings to His loving service. And why Balaramji carries plough? What do we do with a plough? We clear the road. Right? We pre…

As santa rasa, it is Balaramji Who expands Himself through His energy to create Goloka Vrindavan. The spiritual world of Goloka is the expansion of the energy of Balaram. A land which is and all of the surrou…
 
Lord Chaitanya explained to Rupa Gosvami, the highest limits of spiritual elevation is the love of the Gopis of Vrindavan. And how through cultivating devotion through the nine processes of bhakti, one can attain the elevated stages that He had explained.

Lord Chaitanya continued if the devotee continues watering the seed with the embroidery on nectarine shower of hearing and chanting, guarding against the offences and guarding against weeds, the bhakti lata beej grows.

There, they exhibited such an opulence of renunciation, alt…

Blind faith means faith which is not based on the principles of truth. Çréla Prabhupada has given us his books. His books are the authorized translations and commentaries of the original Vedas, which are the revelations of truth in this world. So, by understanding nicely his books in nice association, we can understand what is true and what is fals…
 
We should be humble to serve everyone but we must have, we have to have one direction, vyavasäyätmikä buddhir. That person who we are accepting as a personal link to Çréla Prabhupada in our own life, we should never feel that we need to have second opinions beyond his. That person, who you are speaking of, whoever it may be, was giving us Çréla Pra…

sometimes we find that devotees who are not properly cultured in what Vishnavism truly is in these higher realms of consciousness, sometimes they become proud and sometimes they think they really do not require to hear anything from anyone because they already know. ‘I’ve already read the books, I know so many slokas, I’m such a good preacher, I’m …

The first time I ever met His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj was in 1979. That was the first time he came to the United States of America.

I happened to be traveling and in the…
 
Bhakti Charu Maharaj was soon given the service of being Srila Prabhupada's personal servant, attendant. And this was during the time when Srila Prabhupad was closing his lila in this world.

Prabhupad came to America, he would sometimes say “people are trying to come from India to take what the west has, their material comforts and prosperity.

Therefore, if you surrender to Krishna, if you take shelter of Krishna, if you ask Krishna to come into your life and remove that mountain of false ego, with the little finger of His left hand he will lift it away. Aa jao Giridhari. why do we chant that song? Come Krishna, take away my false ego, please come into my life. I cannot do it, I cannot c…
 
There was a devotee, Prabhupada talks about him in the Chaitanya Charitamrita. He decided he wanted to imitate Haridas Thakur. He wanted to chant all day and do nothing else. He had the same question you did, exactly the same question “if we're supposed to chant all day, what is the use of eating and sleeping and performing all these other activiti…
 
Rupa Goswami explains what is Yukta Vairagya? That which can be utilized in Krsna’s service should not be rejected but it should be utilized in Krsna’s service. “To reject something that can be used in devotional service is incomplete renunciation but to dovetail all the gifts of God for the pleasure of god that is real renunciation. But we have to…
