My heart was so soothed by Srila Bhaktivijnan Bharati Maharaja, who again blessed me with his sweetness, compassion and inspirational discourses and personal darshans! Again the opportunity to be by the side of a personality who knew me better than I know myself and wa...

Whenever Maharaja had free time I would go and sit at his feet and he would read about Sad-Gosvamis, Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha dasa Gosvami and as he read I saw tears would roll down from his eyes.

He was always very gambhir and peaceful with a natural sweetness which made us feel very much at Home in His Divine Presence. Maharaji was my confident in most difficult time. I could open my heart to Him without talking even and He could read in it like a book and pac...

Sri Nityananda Prabhu, who is the complete embodiment of Guru Tattva, has given us your association at the time for great need of harmony and ideal Vaisnavata among the assembly of sincere Vaisnavas.

Srila Maharaja deeply and frequently emphasised the importance of serving Vaishnavas. When we serve them, their hearts melt, and their mercy naturally flows towards us. This is the only way of advancing in devotional service. I want to offer some service to him, but it...

I miss his soft, loving, and reassuring voice filled with wisdom and hope. I miss his eyes full of love, his smile full of compassion, and the gravity of his demeanor, which imparted to us the seriousness of the calamitous position we were in called the material world.

Till this day Srila Maharaja is teaching me to become serious and not to become proud. I had serious accident while preaching in the West but Srila Maharaj always came to my rescue. One night he even came in my dream to console me, sent by Sri Radha at that time I was...

Through your harikathā, you reminded me again and again, just as our Gurudeva did, that bhakti is all about one’s inner intention and purpose, and an external show of devotion bears no fruit. Your even greater teaching was that you lived that, exemplified it.

“Guru-tattva is one. According to one’s development, a person accepts a guru. In your childhood you accept a teacher, and then another, and then another, and then another. Did you leave your guru? No. Guru-tattva is one. So, offering obeisances to the entirety of guru-...

You are always present with us; closer to us than the closest friend. Even though my friends might hold me in a tight hug still they cannot come as close to me as you. This Guru-sisya relationship is something that is meant to be our anchor.

This katha was like an eye opener for me because earlier to this I never knew this real meaning of attending the Rathyatra. Next day in morning I asked shrila Maharaj ji that we had planned to go to Sakshi Gopal and Kheera Chora Gopinath, should we go there or not? Mah...

Though I had opportunities to associate with Shrila Maharaj ji at Chandigarh, Mayapur and Puri yet I had never been with him in Vrindavan. My wish came true in 2015 when after Purshottam month Shrilla Maharaj ji visited Puri for Rathyatra and then to Vrindavan for Radh...

Shrilla Maharaj will never miss Managla Aarti, Madhyan Aarti and Sandhya aarti darshan. He was very punctual in attending these aartis and would also expect his followers to follow the same. Sometimes he would sit there around 4 pm alone watching towards main gate of t...

I realized that although he had become unmanifest from my external visioIt gradually became somewhat clear to me what Guru Maharaja had planted in my heart. How by his mere presence he had effortlessly transformed and purified my consciousness, and how he is continuing...

After I started to stay in Puri from the day, I started to come to your katha in the evening although I had no interest in it, but after the katha finished I touched your Lotus Feet and took prasadam from your Lotus hand, I don’t know I had felt a change in my mind and...

When Śrīla Maharaja started awarding harinama initiation – he used to tell the aspiring devotees that he preferred that they chant a certain number of rounds with attention and quality rather than to prescribing them a certain number of rounds because he didn’t want th...

I've prayed and prayed for a pure devotee guru and actually got one and I cannot even get it together to attend his Vyas Puja!" I didn't think I'd ever get an opportunity to do arati of my Gurudeva again.

Once in Puri Dham after a darshan I did thank him, I sobbed it through my tears, he asked what, like he didn’t hear me, so I had to awkwardly repeat “I know I’m not suppose to say thank you, the guys who distribute prasad in the Sea Palace told me not to... but thank y...

As it kept growing, I was and still remain amazed to see how both my Gurudeva’s are really managing everything and I am just a front-face to it. Whenever there is need for more attention for Guru Maharaja’s seva, Audio Seva issues simply resolve themselves and the othe...

The tip of his tongue was always touching his upper palate. I always got the impression that he was continuously chanting. When he spoke about the power of the holy name, he liked to quote Srila Rupa Goswami from Vidagdha madhava

I remember once when gurudev came in katha we were doing hare krishna kirtan and playing kartal, as soon as he came I stood up leaving kirtan and kartal aside to offer him pranam after which he asked us to continue kirtan. After kirtan he told us hari-nam kirtan is mor...

In my small opinion, in the small kingdom of my heart, You are Krishna Das Kaviraj Gosvami that came, not only to translate his Caitanya Caritamrta in the official language of India, or Hindi, but also to compile the precious and unedited “Vaisnava Caritamrita”, in oth...

I offer my unlimited dandavats to Srila Bhakti Vijñan Bharati Goswami Maharaja, who is the most prominent among Vaishnavas being the embodiment of vaishnava etiquette, because he is always enthusiastic for the service of the loved and unmatched commanders of Srila Prab...

On this day, your Divine Vyasa Puja, I pray to you with all my heart for the loving attachment to chanting the Holy Names, for all bad thoughts to go of others and for the constant yearning of sadhu-sanga and good association. I am fully aware that I have such a long w...

You are an Acarya... A perfect Guru... Strong follower of words and heart of your Guru and Guru parampara. I am not able to associate with you for long, but by reading about you is helping me surrendering to you more and more. I know I am not able to follow your words,...

In the beginning I did not know what to write. Then I was inspired by a class of a Vaisnava telling that Guru and Vaisnavas have the same qualities of the Lord, except of creation, maintenance, destruction and rasalila. Afterwards I read the Visnu Sahastra Nama and dec...

I write this for my gurudeva who if I never got the opportunity to meet I would still be swimming and swimming furiously in this ocean of disappointment and sadness which I was so used to being in.
