According to Śrīman Mahāprabhu’s intimate associate Śrīla Svarūpa Dāmodara, there were three unfulfilled desires, which were the main causes for Śrī Kṛṣṇa to accept the mood and complexion of Śrīmatī Rādhārānī and to descend as Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. It is thus described in Śrī Svarūpa Gosvāmī’s notebook: śrī rādhāyāḥ praṇaya mahimā kīdṛśo vānayair vā svādyo … Continue reading The inner reasons for Śrīman Mahāprabhu’s appearance and shastric reference for it

In this way, the Lord taught the sādhakas of the world by example, that the lotus feet of the Lord can`t be attained without taking shelter of a guru. In Caitanya Bhāgavata it is said – śikṣā guru … Continue reading Śrīman Mahāprabhu’s own example shows the necessity for dikṣā

…until we are there…

Without remembering God, the mind is lifeless and the dogs and jackals of lust and anger can freely play in it. The sweetest meditation is that of Śrī-Śrī Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes. One should not try to remember these pastimes according to a regular schedule. This is a dead and stale practice. The experience must be spontaneous.

Three replies really shocked me…
