Transzendentales Wissen

Transzendentales Wissen in Beziehung zum höchsten Herrn Hari ist Wissen, das zur völligen Beruhigung der Wellen und Strudel der materiellen Erscheinungsweisen führt. Solches Wissen stellt das Selbst zufrieden, weil es frei von materieller Anhaftung ist, und wegen seiner transzendentalen Beschaffenheit wird es von Autoritäten anerkannt. Wer wird sich nicht zu solchem Wissen hingezogen fühlen?

Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 2, Kap. 3, Vers 12

Uddhava Keyari

Vraj Mandala Parikrama with Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja

The place we have now arrived at is full of spiritual mysteries. It is a very unique and confidential location. Uddhava wanted to come to this place but he became so perplexed that he lost his way. When Krishna had gone to Mathura after being taken away by Akrura, the gopis spent months together in this place we are now. They did not eat or sleep or bathe or change their clothes, they were completely oblivious to all material considerations. They would not even return home to their families. They just laid around here totally shattered in utter despair. If there is any place in Vraja that could symbolize the most intense mood of separation, then this place is it. This place where we now stand within the boundaries of Nandagram exemplifies the highest mood of love in separation.

Der menschliche Körper

(aus einem Vortrag zum Jahreswechsel, Srila BV Narayana Maharaja in Hawaii)

Wir müssen das Neue Jahr in solcher Weise feiern, dass sich unsere Hingabe täglich steigert. Wir müssen wissen, dass wir nicht dieser grobe oder feine Körper sind – unser Verstand, unser Ego und unsere Intelligenz. Wir sind jenseits all dieser Dinge; wir sind geistige Seelen, Teil und Teilchen des Höchsten Herrn. Wir müssen hinter uns lassen, was letztes Jahr geschah und in diesem Jahr neu beginnen. Unsere Hingabe muß stärker werden.

Die Frage mag aufkommen: Wenn meine Hingabe stärker werden muss, wie erhalte ich mein Leben? Um dein Leben zu erhalten, führst du fort, was du eh tust. Ob du es wünschst oder nicht, du musst einiges Karma leisten.

Cakalesvara Mahadeva

Cakalesvara Mahadeva came near the bank of Govardhana. He is present there. Why?

If anyone gives Govardhana`s caranamrita to Caklesvara Mahadeva, he will very quickly take away their sins and past karma, and give them vraja-vasa and vraja-seva. Therefore, the devotees offer Govardhana’s caranamrita to Sivaji. Giriraja Govardhana’s caranamrita is present in Manasi Ganga. He bathes and stays in Manasi Ganga. It is Giriraja Govardhana’s caranamrita. If anyone offers that Ganga water to Sivaji, then even without bhajana, he gives everything. He makes the path to the soul’s welfare clear.

Does he give all worldly perfections? No. He will give perfection in bhakti. Srila Sanatana Gosvami stayed near Cakalesvara Mahadeva and daily performed Govardhana parikrama. After some days, Srila Sanatana Gosvami said, “I won’t come stay with you. Worldly people come and their hearts are very dirty, therefore, they make you dirty. They give sweets, milk, flowers, and leave everything very dirty, so then flies and mosquitoes come. Just by coming and throwing things, is this puja?”
