Srila Prabhupada has done labour for us. He has translated the whole thing word by word even from Bengali and Sanskrit and given us nice enlightening purports. Now we should come to this book and try to find out the importance of the pastimes of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
You had not changed, just become even more sweet and attractive, Laughing, smiling, puffing for breathe. A walking encyclopedia of Bhagavatam. You so much wanted that everywhere the holy name and Bhagavatam would be recited constantly. You knew this was the only remedy for the souls’ anomalies.
Maharaj spoke on the verse aham sarvasya prabhavo. When he spoke it was so good, so deep, so full of wisdom and devotion. I was feeling that Lord Krishna has come down again after 5000 years to speak this Bhagavad Gita verse through him.
One should give up the company of devils, demons and nondevotees and should always associate with devotees and saintly persons. One should always act piously, thinking that this life is temporary, and not be attached to temporary happiness and distress.
Otherwise [without being inspired by Lord Krishna] how is it that you have voluntarily appeared here, though you are moving incognito to the common man and are not visible to us who are on the verge of death?
Silent does not mean that one should not speak; silent means that one should not speak nonsense. One should speak only of essentials, and the most essential speech for the devotee is to speak for the sake of the Supreme Lord
My dear Lord, Your lotus feet are the cause of all auspicious things and the destroyer of all the contamination of sin. I therefore beg Your Lordship to bless me by the association of Your devotees, who are completely purified by worshiping Your lotus feet and who are so merciful upon the conditioned souls
Once our ignorance is dissipated, again what is our duty? Be merciful to the people who are rotting in the cycle of birth and death (saṁsāriṇāṁ karuṇayāha) and speak to them the mysterious Bhagavata purana (āha purāṇa-guhyaṁ).
It is said in shastras, we should not appreciate a disciple or a son on his face. We have to appreciate that person in front of another person. Maharaj always used to glorify a person to some other Godbrother.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: My dear sons of the King, I am very much pleased by the friendly relationships among you. All of you are engaged in one occupation—devotional service. I am so pleased with your mutual friendship that I wish you all good fortune. Now you may ask a benediction of Me
Prabhupada shouts that if you want to be happy propagate Srimad Bhagavatam widely and it should be read everywhere. Particularly Prabhupada’s Bhagavatam is very much needed. Day and night he has written.
We are not feeling anything wrong and even then we want check ups. We are addicted to check ups. We are not addicted to Krishna. If Krishna is completely occupying our minds, there is no room for check ups. If there is something wrong means, I will pass away. It is alright. Those who are ready to die, they do not die. Those who are not ready to die, they die.
One whose hand is decorated with nice flute, whose complexion is like the newly formed clouds, who is adorned with yellow clothes, whose lips are red like the bimba fruit ; whose face is like the full moon, whose eyes are like lotus flower, I know no truth greater than that Lord Krishna
Mind is the main thing and whatever goes on in the body, particularly in the heart and intelligence is revealed by our face. Mind is the controller of face also. You will have your face as the mind is. On our condition of mind, our whole being depends. This is the secret.
