Bramha Vimohana Lila

On October 1, 2013, in 1992, Mumbai, SB 10.13, by Radhanath Swami

Srila Sukadeva Goswami, is addressing Maharaja Pariksit as most fortunate, because he has a great urge for hearing the glories of the Lord. He is perceiving that the names and the pastimes of the Lord they are growing newer and newer. In material life everything we do, has the nature of progressively leading towards satiation. We can enjoy something for some time but then we need something else.

Misdirected Love

On September 23, 2013, in 1992, Mumbai, SB 10.7, by Radhanath Swami

Nanda Mahäräja confirmed that by pious activities one can become a sädhu so that one will be happy at home and one’s children will be protected. In the shästra there are many injunctions for karmés and jïänés, especially for karmés, by which they can become pious and happy, even in material life. According to Vedic civilization, one should perform activities for the benefit of the public, such as constructing public roads, planting trees on both sides of the road so that people can walk in the shade, and constructing public wells so that everyone can take water without difficulty…..

Secret of detachment By Radhanath Swami

On September 16, 2013, in 1992, SB 3.25, by Radhanath Swami

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu playing the part the of perfect devotee, when He saw that His being a grhastha, was impeding people from hearing His message, He was going to give up, renounce His most loving, chaiste and faithful wife and His most loving mother. Such a wife and mother, nobody could possibly give up in this world.Generally, when a person is ready to take sannyas, he is pretty much frustrated with his family life. I have been so long, now I will be liberated from all of these anxieties, all of these demands, all of these entanglements.

As Krishna Descends

On September 2, 2013, in 1992, Adi Lila, by Radhanath Swami

We have information from the Bhagavad-gītā that the Lord appears at particular intervals to adjust a time-worn spiritual culture. Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa appeared at the end of Dvāpara-yuga to regenerate the spiritual culture of human society and also to manifest His transcendental pastimes. Viṣṇu is the authorized Lord who maintains the created cosmos, and He is also the principal Deity who makes adjustments when there is improper administration in the cosmic creation.

Becoming Servant Of Servant By Radhanath Swami

On August 12, 2013, in 1992, Mumbai, SB 1.2, by Radhanath Swami

The conditioned life of a living being is caused by his revolting against the Lord. The eternal natural condition of the soul , jivera swarūp hoy krishnera nitya dās, is to be the loving servant of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.. But when within our consciousness an exploitative motive comes into our life it is that, that creates the great illusion of māya. Māya the eternal material energy of the Lord is for those who want to exploit or lord it over the resources of material nature.

Teachings of Queen Kunti By Radhanath Swami

On July 26, 2013, in 1992, Mumbai, SB 1.8, by Radhanath Swami

Queen Kunti has served as a guiding light for innumerable aspiring devotees and great Paramhamsas for the past thousands of years. In this particular place, in the Bhagavatam, it is about what Kunti has gone through in life previous to offering these prayers. We read in the Mahabharat that when she was just a child, she was so loving, so charming, in all her mannerisms so much anxious to serve and to please even though she was a princess at that time.

Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur By Radhanath Swami

On July 1, 2013, in 1992, Adi Lila, Mumbai, by Radhanath Swami

Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur presents the same compassionate spiritual frame of mind. He was also an empowered incarnation of Godhead. He descended to this world only for purpose of establishing the true principles of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. But he could see all around him such a degraded and fallen condition in human society, such rampant materialism, such perverted understandings and practices in the name of religion…….

Story of Varaha Dev By Radhanath Swami

On June 18, 2013, in 1992, Mumbai, Other Festivals, by Radhanath Swami

In His various incarnations, the Lord appears, acts and leaves behind Him a narrative history which is as transcendental as He Himself. Every one of us is fond of hearing some wonderful narration, but most stories are neither auspicious nor worth hearing because they are of the inferior quality of material nature. Every living entity is of superior quality, spirit soul, and nothing material can be auspicious for him.

No Expectation in service By Radhanath Swami

On June 10, 2013, in 1992, Mumbai, SB 10.5, by Radhanath Swami

This is very good example for all of us. It is explained in the Srimad Bhagavatam that when one performs devotional service in material life karma yoga means to work without being attached to the fruit. But in spiritual life it is said in Bhagvatam that when you perform devotional service certain benefits, certain fruits will come from that action of devotional service you should not be attached to that, you should understand it is for Krishna’s enjoyment.
