Forever By Your Side

Even after the disappearance of Sri Guru, if the disciple follows the instructions of his spiritual master and continues to chant the holy name, he can continue to associate with his divine master.

In Vāmana-kalpa [ quoted in Bhakti-sandarbha 237.8 ] Lord Brahma says:

“One’s mantra is identical with one’s guru.
One’s guru is identical with Lord Hari.
When the guru is pleased, Lord Hari is also pleased.”

yo mantraḥ sa guruḥ sākṣād yo guruḥ sa hariḥ svayam
gurur yasya bhavet tuṣṭas tasya tuṣṭo hariḥ svayam

Склоняясь к вашим стопам

Bowing At Your Feet – Paris, August 1973

My dear spiritual master, here my head touches the dust of your divine lotus feet, a rare and most cherished blessing. Though I can never repay my debt to you I promise to dedicate myself, now and forever, to sharing my good fortune with others.

“Remembering the small amount of water that was sprinkled on it as a sapling by a kind person, the coconut tree gives humans plentiful coconuts and sumptuous sweet water throughout its life. Similarly, a sadhu never forgets even a small favor and they dedicate their lives to repaying it.”

[ The sastra entitled: Subhāṣitaratnabhāṇḍāgāra ]

“O Goddess! In great distress I prostrate myself before You, falling on the ground, praying piteously unto You with faltering voice. O Gandharvike! After You bestowed Your mercy on this fool, count him (her) amongst Your own people!”

[ Sri Rupa Goswami In Stavamala ]

ha devi kaku-bhara-gadgadayadya vaca
yace nipatya bhuvi dandavad udbhatartih |
asya prasadam abudhasya janasya kritva
gandharvike nija-gane gananam vidhehi ||2||

Суть всего…

The essence of all …

“O Radhe, O Govinda-Vallabha, beloved of Govinda! I pray that Govinda understands me to be a maidservant who belongs solely to You.”

govinda-vallabhe rādhe
prārthaye tvām ahaṁ sadā
tvadīyām iti jānātu
govindo māṁ tvayā saha

[ Attributed to Hari-bhakti-vilasa ]

Услышав слог “ра-“…

«Слыша слог «ра», я, волнуясь, дарую воспевающему изначальное бхакти ,
и слыша слог «дха», лично следую за ним, чтобы услышать [ повторение имени “Радха” ]».
[ Кришна говорит в “Брахма-вайварта-пуране”, Кришна-джанма-кханда, 15.70]
 ******

“On hearing the syllable ‘rā’, I become anxious and bestow the most pristine bhakti upon the chanter, and on hearing the syllable ‘dhā’, I personally follow the chanter in order to hear [the chanting of the name Rādhā] “

[ Krsna speaking in the Brahma-vaivarta-purāṇa, Kṛṣṇa-janma-khaṇḍa, 15.70 ]

rā-śabdaṁ kurvatas trasto
dadāmi bhaktim uttamām
dhā-śabdaṁ kurvataḥ paścād
yāmi śravaṇa-lobhataḥ

Дорогой Шрила Прабхупада, я благодарен за то, что живу неподалеку от Вриндавана. Я благодарен, что читаю лекции о славе дхамы. Но на самом деле я не имею права ни на что. У меня нет любви к Кришне, я не пролил ни слезинки с тех пор, как нахожусь здесь. Надо сказать правду; мне бы вернуться в джунгли, с мрдангой в руках воспевать славу Господа, как ты меня наставлял. Тоскую по тем дням, плачу по тем дням….

 

 

 

Dearest Srila Prabhupada, I am grateful to be living near Vrindavan. I am grateful to be lecturing about the glories of the dhama. But in reality, I am not qualified for either. I have no love for Krsna and I’ve not shed a single tear since being here. The truth be told; I belong back in the jungle, mrdunga in hand, chanting the glories of the Lord as you instructed me. I long for those days, I cry for those days ….
