keśa-prasādhanaṁ tv atra kāminyāḥ kāminā kṛtam tāni cūḍayatā kāntām upaviṣṭam iha dhruvam (SB 10:30:33)

prapadya vṛndāvana-madhyam ekaḥ
krośann asāv utkalikākulātmā
udghāṭayāmi jvalataḥ kaṭhorāṁ
bāṣpasya mudrāṁ hṛdi mudritasya

Intent upon attaining my cherished desire, I take shelter of Vṛndāvana-dhāma. All alone and loudly lamenting, I openly display the severe burns branded in my heart by scorching tears of separation.

tn sbss smSrila Sarasvati Thakura knew that he would soon be going to his Master, and therefore he gave some final instructions to his disciples. Our Guru-Maharaja was there, as were Gosvami Maharaja (a prominent disciple), Kunja Bihari Prabhu, Bhakti Vilasa Tirtha Maharaja and others. He told those in attendance, "I am unhappy. I have come for a mission – to give the things that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu came to give....

tn gurudeva rocking 400I pray to Rupa-Raghunath and all, he should sprinkle his mercy to you all, that you should have a very pure greed to understand who are gopis, who are especially manjaris. If you will be like Narottama, Srinivasa, Syamananda Prabhu traya, (these) three prabhus, then you can understand this bhakti, highest class of bhakti of manjari mood given by Caitanya Mahaprabhu, very high class of love philosophy....

tn Gurudeva ausomeThe Guru is supposed to be on a higher platform than the disciples. And, you should treat him like, “Saksat-hari.” You should always honor him. A disciple cannot sit on the same asana as Gurudeva. But, a Siksa Guru is also honored. Sometimes, he becomes like a bosom friend. You can embrace and joke with a Siksa Guru. But it is very hard to joke and laugh with your Diksa Guru. But you can joke and become a bosom friend of Siksa Guru; laughing together like Sridhama, Subala, and Krsna...

tn Gurudeva ausomeSrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura said, “If there is even a word of the mayavadis in this world, then it is very difficult to preach bhakti.

When our efforts and Krsna’s mercy meet, then we can have a bona fide guru, otherwise not. One more thing is essential—your past birth impressions. If you have done something devotional in your previous lives, then Krsna will automatically arrange for you to have a bona fide guru...

Therefore, Sukadeva Gosvami started speaking the Bhagavatam to Pariksit Maharaja.

Once, we were travelling with Guruji from Mathura to Bengal. We were going to the birthplace of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. On the way, a district magistrate of the railways got onto the train. The railway magistrate was conducting his routine check. He started a conversation with my Gurudeva.

He asked my Gurudeva, “Krsna is God—what is the evidence for this?”

These two ślokas are our Gurudeva’s heart and soul, and this mood he wanted to preach throughout the world.
