Guest (3) (Indian man): …without taking diksa from the guru also utters the name of Lord Krsna with devotion and…
Prabhupada: There is no devotion unless you go to a guru. Forget it. Adau gurvasrayam. First thing is, first business, is to accept a bona fide guru. Otherwise there is no devotion. It is simply false imitation. This is the injunction of Rupa Gosvami in Bhakti-rasamrta sindhu. Adau gurvasrayam: “Your first business is to approach bona fide guru and take his asraya.” Otherwise there is no devotion. That has been the defect in the modern society. They imagine. This business should be given up. He must follow. Sadhu-marganugamanam, which is prescribed by the sadhu, guru, you have to accept that. You cannot manufacture your own way.

[S.P. Evening Lecture, Bhubaneswar, January 23, 1977]

As attachment can be invoked by the association of pure devotees, so attachment can also be extinguished by offenses committed at the lotus feet of pure devotees. To be more clear, by the association of pure devotees attachment for Krsna can be aroused, but if one commits offenses at the lotus feet of a devotee, one’s shadow attachment or para attachment can be extinguished. This extinguishing is like the waning of the full moon, which gradually decreases and at last becomes dark. One should therefore be very careful while associating with pure devotees to guard against committing an offense at their lotus feet.
Transcendental attachment, either shadow or para, can be nullified by different degrees of offenses at the lotus feet of pure devotees. If the offense is very serious, then one’s attachment becomes almost nil, and if the offense is not very serious, one’s attachment can become second class or third class.

I desire to fully surrender my life and soul to Srila Prabhupada. Then I can become instrumental in assisting him with his mission of delivering all the conditioned souls to the shelter of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai and Sri Sri Radha Krishna.

  1. Let me get something straight here, The Aryans (Ie Scots, Britons, Germanics, Picts, Gauls, Nords, Dorians etc) came from India, not the other way around.
    Proof

    And you will be surprised to know the ethnicity of a ((( Scholar ))) who staunchly opposes the fact that Aryans came from India, not the other way around.

  2. Some more proof
    http://www.oocities.org/ifihhome/articles/bbl002.html

    After all the (((people))) who are propagating the lie(ie AIT theory) are the same people who demonized the Great Hitler.

    No, the civilized man did not come from Monkey or Chimanpanzies.
    Swami Prabhupada even once asked if a man came from Monkeys why we can’t see today a man emerging from Monkey.
    All these nonsense theories are propagated by the same (((people))).
    Swami Prabhupada was totally right when he said the Germanic, as well as other European people, are of Aryan stock, the sad part here is the (((LYING-PEOPLE))) know about this truth, but (((they))) purposefully hiding it, but the European people are completely unaware of this truth.

    Spread the truth, break (((their))) lies.

  3. confidential to you

    not take initiation from ‘them’;
    etc.

    thank you

  4. O Ksatriya, some ksatriya soldiers fought on the backs of vultures, eagles, ducks, hawks and bhāsa birds. Some fought on the backs of timiṅgilas, which can devour huge whales, some on the backs of śarabhas, and some on buffalo, rhinoceroses, cows, bulls, jungle cows and aruṇas. Others fought on the backs of jackals, rats, lizards, rabbits, human beings, goats, black deer, swans and boars. In this way, mounted on animals of the water, land and sky, including animals with deformed bodies, both ksatriya armies faced each other and went forward.
