I was still sick the next morning. After all the vaisnavas paid pranamas to each other, I asked you why you said I was a failure. You told me emphatically, “Because you’re not playing the mrdanga! You have overworked yourself to the point where you can no longer serve....

The moment he looked away I experienced an overwhelming feeling in my heart as I immediately started crying. "What was that?!" I thought. I then realized as the car slowly drove off down the road that I just received that thing which I had read about many tim...

Guru-ji, you have always emphasized importance of real-life communication with the sadhu. When, in 2015, I asked blessings on the website of your hari-katha in Russian, you very accurately placed priorities by saying: "This is good enough, as far as it will inspir...

In Chandigarh, 2011, we got to sit in his divine presence and hear with relish, him explain his seva as a young brahmacari to his Gurudeva, constructing mathas, even to the extent of heavy cement falling on his chest. This did not deter his service one bit. He also sha...

Gurudev spoke very high of him! He described Srila Bharati Maharaj ‘s great endeavour for the establishment of Sree Chaitanya Gaudiya Math organisation. His relentless volcanic efforts to build temples and Ashrams of the Math. How much hardship Undertaken by Srila Bha...

I was thinking “He’s heavy (one of the meanings of guru is ‘heavy’), and at the same time he looks so innocent, like a child. As soon as he begins to speak, he is really powerful. He is friendly and adorable and funny, but when he wants to be heavy, he’s heavy.”  I fo...

I still remember before I met Śrī Gurudeva , I did not know anything about bhakti and I did not believe that Krishna is the supreme personality of Godhead. I also remember very clearly the first time I saw Śrī Gurudeva, he was sitting in a room, it appeared like my hea...

On 27th december 2016 was our initiation day. We went into a room with Siddhanti Maharaj and he made a Skype call to India to Srila BV Vigyana Bharati Maharaj. The moment I saw him and he opened his mouth, where a very soft, gentle and sweet voice came out I got such a...

Śrīla Guru Mahārāja, since I am unqualified and unfit for any sevā directly at your lotus feet, the only way I may serve you is through your limbs [disciples]. I pray I never offend them, as this will result in an offense towards you. I pray I may learn from them how t...

So much inspiration is coming from those dear devotees who were so blessed to meet you, and they are so kind in sharing their love for you, their memories of you. I pray for their mercy also. My hope is that I may develop an ever-deeper relationship with you by followi...

To one disciple who is fully surrendered, Gurudev is not holding anything back, he will make that disciple also became guru (heavy). That’s why Gurudev also mentions that, One should not consider himself diksita (initiated), as long as divya-jnana (transcendental knowl...

A year has passed since you are no longer manifested to our material eyes. You have now "hid yourself" to observe all of us who have come in contact with you and admired you. We have made yourself the object of our affection and faith. You had the power to tu...

This soul had your unexpected darshan at the Matha in Mayapur outside your room while you were giving harikatha to several devotees. Your gentle and merciful face will forever be in my heart. The only offering this soul can give is to always follow Your instructions wi...

My dear Guru Maharaja, you disappeared from this mortal world one year ago, but you certainly did not leave me alone. By your transcendental presence and mercy, you never stopped guiding me, protecting me, inspiring me, and arranging so many miracles to nourish my re...

It was the brightest ray of light in my life, when I met Gurudeva's eyes, the clearest sound vibration, the moment I heard his voice. All ilusions I carried for so many lifestime collapsed at once and in that moment I realized, "I am yours eternel servent, so...

I remember one of the last times I met you in Faridabad, you did not have much strength to speak, you were lying in bed, and those sweet eyes that looked at me full of compassion and mercy remained impressed in my heart. That image is like a photo saved in my memory. I...

Guru seva was his whole life, he is the living example of how to serve guru, obeying and putting into practice his teachings. the great example of this was to have written three invaluable jewels 'Volcanic Energy' and 'My Beloved Masters', where you mer...

I remember my Gurudev used to speak very highly about Bharti Maharaj, it was pure transcendental loving relation manifest.  I have personally witnessed both of them interacting, it was out of this world communication. Many times, Gurudev wanted Bharti Maharaj’s opinion...

Maharaja was expert in this, he could derive sastric learnings from his various rich  life experiences There was no bhakti tattva which he didn’t elucidate without an example from his life experience; Maharaja could transform ordinary worldly Jnana information to Vijya...
