When we are doing seva, if the motive is to please Hari, Guru and Vaisnavas, even though it may take time, definitely the time will come when the name will appear on the tongue and make us fortunate. At that time it doesn't come by our efforts, but it comes automat...

But you took no credit. You gave all credit to your Gurudev and Krishna. This is the actual secret, because you are simply the humble messenger of Srila Bhakti Daiyita Madhava Maharaja and the rupanuga prampara.

When my eyes came in contact with his eyes then I got my Guru-maharaja’s darsana! Really! After ten long years from our last meeting, I again got the opportunity to see him! Then after a while, through the tears streaming from my eyes, I saw the lotus face of my dear S...

I just felt so much awe and respect for my Gurudeva. I was shown again how absolutely perfect he is. Although he is a pure devotee and can give anything, he is so completely surrendered to his Guru. He won’t do anything that isn’t in direct line with what his own Gurud...

Srila Gurudeva said, “I repeat the same words day on day, everyday. Yet I don't see any transformation in those around me.” It was like a jab in my heart, facing the hard reality. Yes, I was one of those who were not transformed, despite the ‘repitition’. The tithi...

Although you were amidst us for a very short time after you began your ācārya lilā, you left us an invaluable treasure in the form of your spotless precept (ācāra) and profound instructions through your books and hari-kathā (vāni). You also indicated how that [inexhaus...

One day Bhudara Prabhu called me to tell me that he had been having this dream every night for 3 nights where a Gaudiya Sannyasi was coming to him in the dream and telling him to contact me and tell me to come and visit him and he would take care of me. Bhudara Prabhu...

The first time we heard about Srila Maharaj was from our neighbor, Radhakanth Prabhu in 2010. He told us there is a hari katha broadcast from Pune from a senior Vaishnava; there are so few left now on earth like them, so you must listen to the broadcast. Then from 2011...

And then he looked at me, and in clear English said - "You must know your own adhikara." His words profoundly impacted me. Every day for a year, I could hear him saying this inside me, and I could feel his presence. And finally I understood. It became very c...

He respectfully backed up as if I was carrying something important even though it was only a garbage can. I gave him pranams and I got a huge wave of bliss that took over my entire body but also my mind and feeling in the heart was so sublime. What just happened to me?...

Hari-katha was the only service that he could outwardly perform in recent years. Sometimes I heard that Guruji complains that he can not do anything else. But he devoted himself entirely to this service with great love for his Guru-Varga and mercy and compassion for us...

Maharaj Ji told me to do Hari Naam Sankirtan with my family members and do Hari Naam more and more. I was just about to leave the room when Srila Maharaj called out my name and told me to sit once again. This time Srila Maharaj was very grave. He told me that something...

His lotus feet were bare and stood on the floor. It was the only time when being physically so close I was lucky to see His feet in such form. FurthermoreI had the opportunity to touch Them. I kissed Them and touched Them with my forehead. They were cool and very gentl...

What makes me most astonished is that one gets an immeasurable, endless, permanent spiritual auspiciousness only if one desired to associate with you even once, has gotten your association even once, has served you even once, has taken Prasad from you hands even once,...

at one point all the senior disciples of Bhakti Pramoda Puri Maharaj, Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja, Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja, Bhakti Vaibhava Puri Maharaja and many others had reunited at Gurudeva's lotus feet. Even though with many varieties of devotion; un...

Gurudeva, being omniscient and omnipotent, had been watching me out of the corner of his eye and saw my failure to properly follow Vaisnava etiquette in my sitting posture and he looked me dead in the eye and he waved his lotus hand while he shook his head in disapprov...

And in 2017, one week before Srila Guru Maharaja concluded his manifest pastimes, he mercifully accepted me and others as his diksa disciple. Since 2012/13, I only aspired from him and just see how he mercifully fulfilled my heart's desire, despite not being physic...

Through the blessings of Shyamarani Didi, Vasanti Didi and all the Vaishnavas from our Alachua Sanga, I had the good fortune at the age of 9 years old to receive Harinam from our Gurudeva, by His causeless mercy a few months before he entered Nitya Lila pastime. My mom...

Gurudev, you are non-different from Srila Nityananda Prabhu, I pray you to please make my heart as a lotus for you to sit on and never leave me, for I will never find such a merciful master again.

One time I saw how he held back tears when he requested in his katha to surrender to the Lord, as if begging us to finally cease to live separately from Krishna, considering ourselves independent.

She told me that when asked about Srila Maharaj, our Gurudeva had said, “He has the same mood as me.” And she shared how she and Krsna Mayi didi had left from Srila Maharaj’s darshan with the same rare feelings in their heart that they had felt with our Srila Gurudeva.

Gurudeva, please come and deliver me the reassurance that I am still under your protection; please come to accept my services; please come and show me - your rare, guileless, child-like, broad smile, the way you smiled while blessing me on my birthday!

Srila Gurudeva was always at the service of all the vaishnavas He came in contact with, one way or another He always worried for the needs and commodities they may require. If we take shelter in his books, we could understand the service mood by which Srila Gurudev se...

We three glanced through the door, and saw Gurudeva seated inside a mosquito net. He looks gentle and soft. I started speaking to his servant that I would like to take diksha from him, would you please kindly help us and seek his blessings?

As you always say, by glorifying vaishnavas our heart becomes clean, am just trying to clean myself by singing your glorification. You are just not a Guru or Father to me but a mentor and a most compassionate soul to all the vaishnava community. Your faith in Guru, Sad...
