In honour of Sripad Ajita Krishna Brahmachari:

A Miracle and Wealth of Our Mission [Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj]
"Ajita Krishna Brahmachari was an ideal servitor of Srila Guru Maharaj. I am surprised to see his mood of service. I did something, no doubt, but he used ten times more energy for the service of Guru Maharaj! That was his peculiarity. That type of all-rounder brahmachari was the wealth of our mission."

 

The Tireless Servitor [Sri Gaudiya Darshan]
An article written by Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj in honour of the passing of Sripad Ajita Krishna Prabhu Seva Saurabh. It was first published in Sri Gaudiya Darsan on 19 September 1971.

The Best of All Servitors [Sri Gaudiya Darshan]
Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj's tribute to Sripad Ajita Krishna Das Brahmachari Seva Saurabh.

 

SONG: Ye anila prema-dhana | যে আনিল প্রেমধন
"Where are the saviours of the fallen souls? Not finding Sri Gauranga, who performed His Pastimes with all His associates, Narottam Das weeps."

SONG: Ohe Vaisnava Thakura | (ওহে) বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর
"O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet. You can give Krishna, you have that power. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you."

SONG: Ki-rupe paiba seva | কিরূপে পাইব সেবা
"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!"

SONG: Dhana mora nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs' name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated hearing the name of Vaishnavs."

Love, Lust, and Rust
"Magnet always attracts iron, but if the iron is covered with rust, then it will not attract it any more. Because of our ignorance, we have become rusty and Krishna does not attract us. If a madman sucks on dry sugar cane pulp—will he get any sweetness?"

Heal and Declutter

In honour of disappearance of Srila Svarup Damodar Goswami Prabhu:

"When Svarup Damodar heard that Mahaprabhu had disappeared—he had only heard about it, he had not seen Mahaprabhu disappear—he searched so many places, wherever it was possible to find Mahaprabhu, but he did not find him. It broke his heart and he also disappeared. However, Ramananda Ray was very strong and a very good administrator. He controlled the whole situation and the whole atmosphere after Mahaprabhu's disappearance and gave full nourishment to the devotees. Ramananda Ray stayed alive until finally, when everything had become peaceful and settled, he also disappeared..."

Prayers to Sri Vaishnav Thakur:

SONG: Ei-bara karuna kara | এইবার করুণা কর

"During the gundicha marjan Mahaprabhu gathered all the dust together and said that dust was dharma, artha, kama, moksa, or bhukti-, mukti-, siddhi-kami. As long as you have these in your heart, we will not be able to get Krishna-prema. I have told many times that we want Krishna-prema."

In honour of Sri Gundicha Marjan:

Gundicha Marjan: "Let Jagannath Come to My House"
"Another meaning of Gundicha marjan is cleaning the heart, and Mahaprabhu Himself was showing how to do it. At first He swept, then poured water and then with His own cloth, uttariya, He washed the temple. He was showing how thoroughly you must clean your heart..."

"Alas, alas! O Bhakti Vinoda Thakura, O Supreme Guru, for twenty-two years this world has been plunged into misfortune, long grief-stricken in your intolerable separation. You are the divine potency of Sri Gaura, and you graciously made your advent in this earthly plane, being attracted by the living beings' virtuous deeds performed throughout many lifetimes. Where am I, so lowly and fallen, and where are you, the great soul who delivers the universe!"

Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur
"If Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur had not come in this world, where, in whose lotus feet would we have found our shelter? He gave us all these things and he gave us Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur. If you think about it, you can understand how much he gave to the jiva souls..."

The Worship of Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur
[Sri Gaudiya Darshan, by Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj]
"Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur did so much seva for the sampradaya of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He lived during a very heavy time period. He was a very exclusive devotee of Mahaprabhu and specifically worshipped Deities of Sri Sri Gaura Gadadhar...."

 


In honour of Srila Gadadhar Pandit Goswami:

— { Pranam mantra of Sri Gadadhar Pandit Goswami } —

nilambhodhi-tate sada sva-viraha-ksepanvitam bandhavam
srimad-bhagavati katha madiraya sanjivayan bhati yah
srimad-bhagavatam sada sva-nayanasru-payanaih pujayan
gosvami-prabaro gadadhara-vibhur-bhuyat mad-eka-gatih

"On the shore of the broad blue ocean Gadadhar Pandit used to read Srimad Bhagavatam to Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who was suffering from the great internal pain of separation from Himself (Krishna). Gadadhar Pandit supplied the wine of Krishna-lila to intoxicate his afflicted friend and give Him relief. As he read, tears would fall from his eyes like flower offerings onto the pages of Srimad Bhagavatam. May the pleasure of that brilliant personality, Gadadhar Pandit, the best of the Goswamis, be my only object in writing this book."

Pandit Sri Gadadhar Goswami
[Sri Gaudiya Darshan, by Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj]
"Pandit Goswami's life is a special offering of silent and complete self-sacrifice to his beloved. Only those who can taste unprecedented joy by appreciating the wonder within the ornament of contradiction in seeing the bag of a beggar on Laksmi Devi’s shoulder are fit to appreciate the extraordinary glory of Srimat Pandit Goswami's unprecedented personality..."
