Transcendental Writing

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

Observing that devotees are getting more and more interested in writing/sharing their realizations from Prabhupada's books, I thought of sharing this beautiful piece of purport from CC Adi Lila, 9th chapter, 5th verse, wherein Srila Krishna das Kaviraj Goswami submits the following prayer:

e-saba-prasāde likhi caitanya-līlā-guṇa
jāni vā nā jāni, kari āpana-śodhana

It is by the mercy of all these Vaiṣṇavas and gurus that I attempt to write about the pastimes and qualities of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Whether I know it or know not, it is for self-purification that I write this book.
 
Purport:
This is the sum and substance of transcendental writing. One must be an authorized Vaishnava, humble and pure. One should write transcendental literature to purify oneself, not for credit. By writing about the pastimes of the Lord, one associates with the Lord directly. One should not ambitiously think, "I shall become a great author. I shall be celebrated as a writer." These are material desires. One should attempt to write for self-purification. It may be published, or it may not be published, but that does not matter. If one is actually sincere in writing, all his ambitions will be fulfilled. Whether one is known as a great author is incidental. One should not attempt to write transcendental literature for material name and fame.

Srila Prabhupada ki Jai!!!

Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Kalacakra Krsna das.
