Hare Krsna

"O, all-merciful spiritual master, representative of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, when will my mind completely surrendered unto your lotus feet? At that time, only by your mercy, I shall be able to get relief of all obstacles to spiritual life and I shall be seated in blissful life." Krsna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead

Ever afterward, though the dance of creation changes around me in the hall of eternity, I shall be the same.

—Anandamayi Ma (1896-1982), Bengali yogini and saint (via brahmaanda)

"So in this material world there is ādi, ādy-anta, beginning and ending. But Kṛṣṇa has no beginning or end. The material… Therefore Kṛṣṇa is not material. Urugāya. Kṛṣṇa is urugāya. Uru means He is exalted with nice, many, many ślokas, gāya. Gāya means songs, poetry. Uru. We cannot imagine. Uru-gāya. Just like in the Brahma-saṁhitā: yasyaika-niśvasita-kālam athāvalambya jīvanti loma-vilajā jagad-aṇḍa-nāthāḥ [Bs. 5.48]. Loma-vilajā jagad-aṇḍa-nāthāḥ. So this jagad-aṇḍa-nāthāḥ, mean Brahmā… Jagad-aṇḍa. Āṇḍa means egglike, egg-shaped, this Brahmāṇḍa or this universe. And there are jagad-aṇḍa-nāthāḥ, plural number. So in each universe there is a chief living entity. He is called Brahmā because Brahmā is created first. So that Brahmā, there are millions of universes, and there are millions of Brahmās and millions of Śiva and other demigods. Each Brahmā is full with all different types of living entities. But such Brahmās, where they are being born? Not only Brahmā, the brahmāṇḍa. Yasyaika-niśvasita-kālam athāvalambya jīvanti. Niśvasita-kāla. Just like we exhale and inhale. A minute… Or not minute even. A second. Within a second we exhale and inhale so many times. So similarly, Viṣṇu, Mahā-Viṣṇu, He is also exhaling and inhaling. But during that period so many brahmāṇḍas are coming and so many brahmāṇḍas disappear… Ādy-antavanta, beginning and… But this Mahā-Viṣṇu, who is this Mahā-Viṣṇu? Yasyaika-niśvasita-kālam athāvalambya jīvanti loma-vilaja jagad-aṇḍa-nāthāḥ, viṣṇur mahān sa iha yasya kalā-viśeṣo [Bs. 5.48]. This Mahā-Viṣṇu, from whose breathing so many brahmandas and Brahmas are coming and going, that Mahā-Viṣṇu’s one second just imagine, how many million millions of years. So this is the description of Mahā-Viṣṇu. Then Mahā-Viṣṇu is also partial incarnation of Sankarsana; the Sankarsana is also emanation from Nārāyaṇa; and Nārāyaṇa is also a emanation from the first Catur-vyūha Saṅkarṣaṇa. This Saṅkarṣaṇa is expansion of Baladeva, and Baladeva is the immediate expansion of Kṛṣṇa. Therefore come to the Kṛṣṇa. So ādy-antavanta."

ocean-of-nectar:


The Holy Name of Krsna cleanses the mirror of the heart and extinguishes the fire of misery in the forest of birth and death.
As the evening lotus blooms in the moon’s cooling rays, the heart begins to blossom in the nectar of the Name.
And at last the soul awakens to its real inner treasure—a life of love with Krsna. Again and again tasting nectar, the soul dives and surfaces in the ever-increasing ocean of ecstatic joy.
All phases of the self of which we may conceive are fully satisfied and purified, and at last conquered by the all-auspicious influence of the Holy Name of Sri Krsna.
Lord Gauranga, the golden saviour of kali-yuga sings these words, overwhelmed by divine emotion. All glories to this Krsna sankirttan, which is the cleanser of all toxic things from the mirror of the mind and it is the delight of the soul.
All glories to Krsna kirrtan it extinguishes the forest fire of material
existence and removes all trials and troubles.
All glories to Krsna sankirttan, it illuminates the heart like the full moon and makes the white lotus of the soul’s good fortune blossom and bloom.
Krsna kirttan is the bhakti-vilasa, the beautiful pastime of devotion.
All glories to Krsna sankirttan that awakens pure transcendental knowledge, which is compared to a young bride and is the real perfection of life.
All glories to Krsna sankirttan, for it also awakens one’s siddha-svarupa, our true inner spiritual form and function.
Krsna sankirttan is a flood of divine nectar, it expands the glories of the ocean of transcendental ecstasy.
All glories to Krsna sankirttan for it gives one a taste of nectarine rasa at every step then ultimately it bestows pure Krsna-prema.
Bhaktivinoda’s soul is bathed in this nectar of  Krsna sankirttan His soul is ruled by Krsna kirttan which is the giver of Krsna prema

The devotees of the Lord, who are all confidential servitors, are sometimes perplexed in the discharge of their respective duties, but they are never discouraged. They have full faith in the Lord, and He paves the way for the smooth progress of the devotee’s duty.

—Srimad Bhagavatam 3.13.37

middleeasternpoetry:

The people of this world are like the three butterflies in front of a candle’s flame. The first one went closer and said: I know about love. The second one touched the flame lightly with his wings and said: I know how love’s fire can burn. The third one threw himself into the heart of the flame and was consumed. He alone knows what true love is. - Rumi

"It is my duty to give protection and safety to all living entities struggling for existence. Certainly it is the duty of the master to protect his suffering dependents.
People in general, being bewildered by the illusory energy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, are always engaged in animosity toward one another. But devotees, even at the risk of their own temporary lives, try to save them.”
