Sri Gaura Das Babaji (Nandagram)

Around the Bengali year 1300, Sri Gaura Das Babaji was performing bhajan in Sri Sanatan Goswami’s bhajan kutir at Pavan Sarovar, in Sri Nandagram. He came to be well known as a siddha purush. He used to bring flowers from Gazipur, near Prem Sarovar, and make garlands for Sri Lalaji. It was through this flower seva that he attained the grace of Sri Krishna. After five or six years of doing this seva, this feeling came into his heart, that, “Till now I have done flower seva for Sri Lalaji, but he has not shown any compassion toward me. Sri Krishnachandra’s heart is a bit hard. Srimati Vrishabhanunandini’s heart, however, is made of pure mercy. If I had been doing Sri Ji’s flower seva all this time, she definitely would have had mercy on me. Today I will go to Barsana. I won’t stay here anymore.” That afternoon he tied his patchwork blanket, etc. onto his back and just before sunset, he set out across the fields about a mile south of Nandagram. The cowherds were coming back into town - just then a dark, beautiful boy said to Babaji, “Babaji! Where are you going?”
Babaji: “Lala, I’m going to Barsana.”
Boy: “No, Babaji! Go back.”
Babaji: “No, Lala, I have lived in Nandagram for six years and haven’t gotten anything.”
Boy: “No, Babaji! You listen to me. Don’t you go.”
Babaji: “I won’t stay. Get out of my way.”
But the boy stetched out his arms and stood in Babaji’s way. Whichever way Babaji went, the boy blocked him with his two arms outstretched. Then Babaji got mad and said, “Hey kid! What’s with this monkey business?” Just then twilight set in. The boy said, “Babaji! But who will do my flower seva?” When he said that, Babaji said, “Kid, who ARE you?” Then he did not see the boy anymore, nor the cows and the calves. Babaji Maharaj, weeping in anguish, rolled his body back and forth on the ground. “Krishna! You cheated me like this? Ah! I didn’t recognize you at all; I didn’t understand what you were saying! Hey Dina-vatsal, lover of the wretched! I am vile among men. Have mercy on me!” In this mood, he returned to Nandagram at night, and cried all night long. The Pujari received the instruction, “Look here! Make sure Gaura Das does not abandon My flower seva.” (Gaudiya Vaishnav Jivan, pgs. 82-83)

GOVARDHAN CLASS Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Gosvami Maharaj

Spiritual Leaders - Gaudiya-Vaisnava Acaryas (gurus)

Srila Bhakti Promode Puri Maharaja  

His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj appeared on this earth at Ganganandapur village, Jessore district, presently named Bangaladesh on the 18th of October, 1898. Since his appearance he exhibited spontaneous attraction for The Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Sri Krishna. His father name was Tarini Charan Chakraborty and mother name was Ramrangini Devi. He appeared in a strict Brahmin family and started to follow the path of devotion as a young child by the influence of his neighbor Bhakti Ratna Thakur, theGodbrother of Srila Sacchidananda Bhakti Vinode Thakur. As per the instruction of Srila Bhakti Ratna Thakur he worshiped Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan and was encouraged to take shelter of the founder president of all Gaudiya Maths and branches around the world, His Divine Grace, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupada.
In 1915, the day after Srila Gour-Kisore Das Babaji Maharaj's disappearance day, he went to Mayapur and met with Srila Prabhupada. At that time Srila Prabhupada was wearing white cloth and following strict Brahmachari life. Pramode Bhusan Chakrabory (Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj) felt attraction to see the strict and sober nature of Srila Prabhupada. At that time his (Srila Prabhupada) name was Bimala Prasad Datta. After Pramode Bhusan attended the Samadhi ceremony of His Divine Grace Srila Gaura Kishor Das Babaji Maharaja he had chance to meet with Bimala Prasad. After this meeting Pramode Bhusan decided to take shelter of Bimala Prasad as his eternal Spiritual Master. Pramode Bhusan met with Bimala Prasad again in 1917, at Yogopith temple when he accepted Mahaprabhu's prasadam from the hand of Srimati Bhagavati Devi, mother of Bimala Prasad.
Once pujari, Pramode Bhusan forgot to offer a blanket in the winter time to Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan. That night Pramode Bhusan awoke with chills through out his body and soon realized the cause of the chills were due to his forgetfulness in the service of their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan. He immediately went to the house of Bhakti Ratna Thakur and explained the situation. As per the direction of Bhakti Ratna Thakur, Pramode Bhusand immediately took a cold bath in the pond nearby. After that he entered the temple for offering the blanket to Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan. As soon as he offered the blanket the chills in his body left immediately. So, since his early teenage childhood period Sri Sri Radha Krishna, our Divine couple were receiving service by Pramode Bhusan in various ways.
Srila Prabhupada, in 1918 on Gaura Purnima day, after accepting the order of Sanyasa, came to Kolkata to spread the message of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Radha Krishna. He would give Srimad Bhagawatam class every day at Bhaktivinode asan. Many intellectual persons came to attend his class. In 1920 Pramode Bhusan, after finishing his degree with honors in chemistry, took an office job in Kolkata. As soon as Pramode Bhusan heard the news that Srila Prabhupada was giving class daily he also began attending daily. Once a scorpion bit Pramode Bhusan, just before he started to attend the class of Srila Prabhupada. Although you can imagine the pain felt by the bite of the scorpion, still Pramode Bhusan went to the class without consideration. Due to Srila Prabhupada's transcendental vision he could understand the sound faith of Pramode Bhusan for attending his class, even though he was suffering from the bite of a scorpion. On that day, Srila Prabhupada called Pramode Bhusan after His class and invited him to stay in his Math. As per the order of Srila Prabhupada, Pramode Bhusan started to stay in the Math just few months after that order, on the day of Ramchandra's Lanka-Vijaya festival. Srila Prabhupada also allowed Pramode Bhusan to continue working at the office while staying in the Math for supporting his family.
In this way, Pramode Bhusan continued like this from 1921 to 1923 and simultaneously gave financial support to his family at Ganganandapur, Bangladesh. On the auspicious day of Sri Krishna Janmastami in 1923, Srila Prabhupada approached Pramode Bhusan and said, "Today I would like to give you initiation and also from today you have to quit your office job and fully engage your time to my publication department." Pramode Bhusan, hearing the order of Srila Prabhupada, became overwhelmed with joy and without reservation accepted first and second initiation along with saffron dress at the same time. He was given the name Pranabananda Das Bramhachari. After initiation, Srila Prabhupada gave a fountain pen to Pranabananda Das Bramhachari and told him to use this pen for your service from today forward. From that day Srila Prabhupada kept Pranabananda Das Bramhachari near him at all times to dictate new articles for the purpose of publication. Due to this most important service of Pranabananda Das Bramachari we are able to read Srila Prabhupada's articles and books. Nowadays these books are still available in Gaudiya Math at Bag-Bazar, Kolkata, and Sri Chaitanya Math at Mayapur. Due to his humility, he never allowed his name to be printed inside any of these books.
In 1926, he was put in charge of running Bengal's only daily Vaisnava newsletter, named Dainik Nadiya Prakash. He continued this service for three years, publishing all of his preceptor's daily discourses along with articles by fellow students and other contemporaries. At this time all books, magazines, and newsletters were all done manually. To see the sincerity and hard work of Pranabananda, Srila Prabhupada awarded him the title Maha-Mahopadesaka and Pratna-Vidyalankar.
Due to Pranabananda Das Bramachari's close relationship with Srila Prabhupada and out of Srila Prabhupadas affection he would sometimes make jokes with Pranabananda. Many times during prasadam, Srila Prabhupada, with smiling face and eyes wide open, would say, "Pranab belongs to Jessore and people of Jessore like to eat molasses so give him lots of molasses and make him happy." Also sometimes Pranabananda's mother would send distressful letters about family matters at home. Srila Prabhupada would come to the prasadam hall and explain the contents of the letters to all the devotees, in the presence of Pranabananda. Srila Prabhupada would say with smiling face, "Pranab's mother is writing such a distressful letter that after reading this even I'm feeling so much distress, so what will happen when Pranab reads the contents of this letter?"
In 1936, when Srila Prabhupada was at the inauguration ceremony in Bhubaneswar Tridandi Gaudiya Math, Pranavananda was offered by Srila Prabhupada to accept Sanyassa initiation. Pranabananda ,due to his extreme humility, thought himself unfit for taking the vow of Sanyassa and humbly declined the offer of Srila Prabhupada.
In December of 1936 at Bagh Bazaar Gaudiya Math in Kolkata, Srila Prabhupada, due to the condition of his heart, was being looked after by several intimate disciples. One morning while Pranabananda was serving Srila Prabhupada in his room, Srila Prabhupada placed his lotus feet on the chest of his dear Pranab. With tears in his eyes, Pranabananda, holding the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada to his chest said, "We are all so young so what will happen to your mission if you leave us now? We need you here to guide us." Srila Prabhupada softly replied, "Pranab, Krishna Krishna Krishna."
On the 1st of January, 1937 at 5:30 am, just two days later, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhantha Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupada physically departed from this world. That day they immediately took the transcendental body of Srila Prabhupada to Sri Mayapur Dham with Pranabananda Das Brahmachari and Srila Bhakti Gourav. Baikhanas Goswami Maharaj were both selected by all the devotees to perform the Samadhi ceremony of Srila Prabhupada. The Samadhi Temple of Srila Prabhupada, which was made by Kunja-Babu, later known as His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Vilas Tirtha Goswami Maharaj, can still be seen today at Sri Mayapur Dham. These type of intimate pastimes between Srila Prabhupada and Panabananda were going on from 1923 until the disappearance day of Srila Prabhupada.
In 1942, Srila Prabhupada appeared to Pranabananda in a dream and imparted to him the sannyas mantra, ordering him to accept the renounced order. Five years after this transcendental dream in 1947, he took the vow of Sanyassa from His Godbrother, Srila Bhakti Gourav Baikhanas Maharaj at Gour-Gadadhara temple in Champahati, with the help of Sat-Prasanga-Nanda Das Brahmachari who, after taking Babaji initiation from Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, was known as Nayananandadas Babaji Maharaj.
After the disappearance of Srila Prabhupada, Pranavananda Das Brahmachari continued his service of spreading the teachings of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu through the Gaudiya Magazine, first out of the Bagh Bazar Gaudiya Math, then at Yogapith temple, the birth palce of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu at Mayapur. Also he was engaged as temple president of Yogopith temple for almost seven years, as per the order of his senior Godbrother, Kunja-Babu.
After continuing seven years of service to Yogapith temple he relocated to Kalna, a Holy place where Gouridas Pandit and Suryadas Pandit, intimate associates of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu manifested their pastimes with Hriday-Chaitanya Prabhu at bank of the Ganga river. Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, remembering all these pastimes, stayed there on the bank of the river Ganga at Kalna in a small kutir worshiping his home Deity for the next three years. After that the King of Burdwan was extremely impressed by his saintly character and in 1958 the king offered Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj a three hundred year old Temple of Sri Ananta Vasudeva at Kalna.
In the same year, on the appearance day of Srimati Radharani, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj entered the temple to stay and serve the deities. After three years passed Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj felt separation from the service of publishing the message of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, given by Srila Prabhupada. After a short time, Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Goswami Maharaj approached Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj to take the service of the Chaitanya Vani Magazine editorial department, as well as taking care of his publication department for the service of Srila Gurudeva and Mahaprabhu. Finally, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj left the temple of Sri Anatna Vasudeva and gave the responsibilities for taking care of the temple to one of his intimate associates named Nani Gopal Prabhu. In this way, from 1961 to 1989 he undertook these various services in the department of Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Goswami Maharaj and also traveled to different temples of his Godbrothers for helping their publication department as well.
Once a Godbrother of Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, Pujjyapad Sri Madan Mohan Das adhikari, took all of his family members to accept initiation from Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaja. Starting in 1981 Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaja began accepting all the family members and gradually gave them initiation one by one. One of those family members was the grandson of Madan Mohan Dasadhikari Srila Bhakti Bibudha Bodhayana Maharaja, now the present Acharya and successor of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj.
It is a well known fact that Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj was the foremost expert in regaurds to Diety installation, Samadhi ceremony, and Temple foundation installation. Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, upon the request from his dear God brothers, actually installed almost all of the deities within the Gaudiya Math and also performed the Samadhi ceremony of most of his God brothers, including His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Rakshaka Sridhar Dev Goswami Maharaj and His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Goswami Maharaj. It should be noted that His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada also requested His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj to lay the corner stone foundation at Sri Mayapur Chandradaya Mandir. In this way we can see the magnanimous mood of Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, to engage in these services to all his God brothers without any reservation.
1n 1987, at the age of 89, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, at the request of the family members of Pujjyapada Sri Madan Mohan Dasadhikari, accepted a small piece of land in Ishodyan, Sri-Mayapur Dham. Amongst the family members; Sripad Gopinath Das Brahmachari, Vimal Krishna Dasadhikari, and Madhusudan Dasadhikari were so much eager to make one bhajan kutir for their Gurudeva, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj. After making one small bhajan kutir, gradually lots of devotees started approaching Srila Puri Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj for his shelter, siksha, and blessings. Finally he decided to install his ultimate Prayojana-Tattva deities, Sri Sri Gour-Gadhara, Sri Sri Radha-Gopinatha, and Sri Jagannath Dev. A few years later, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj ordered his disciple, Sripad Ramdas Prabhu, just after the time of initiation, to bring a Lakshmi Nrisimha Deva Deity to His Mayapur temple. In the following years he established other temples in Jagannath Puri Dham, Vrindavan Dham, Kolkata, and Midnapore.
Srila Bhakti Promode Puri Maharaja had outstanding love for his godbrothers and was inspired in his glorification to other Vaishnavas. He found richness in everyone he met. He had the quality of making one feel so much wanted and their life so much valued. At the same time, he paid the least attention to himself. He was an emblem of humility and simplicity, and his generosity of spirit and kindness touched the hearts of the whole Vaishnava community. Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaja set the example throughout his life how one can manifest the actual mood of how to be more humble than a blade of grass, more tolerant than a tree, and to be always ready to offer all respects to others irregardless of their backround. We are greatly indebted to His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj for his lifetime of pure devotion, spanning over a century, which we can aspire for, learn from, and discuss, for our own spiritual nourishment.
His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaja departed this world for the eternal abode in the predawn hours of Narayana Chaturdasi, October 21, 1999, one day before Rasa Purnima. His divine body was transported from Jagannatha Puri to the Gopinatha Gaudiya Matha in Ishodyan, Sri Dham Mayapur, and there he was placed in his eternal samadhi Mandir. Prior to his departure from this world, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaja appointed his intimate disciple, Sripada Bhakti Bibudha Bodhayan Maharaja as his successor to Sri Gopinatha Gaudiya Matha for the purpose of carrying on his instruction to spread the message of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu around the world.
In years to come, as more of his words and visions are translated, the world outside of Bengal and India will come to know the spirit of the true Vaishnava religion that he tirelessly made available through his editing and publishing service. May the gentle rain of nectar of his perfect teachings continue to bring auspiciousness into this world.

All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga
The following is a holy puspanjali at the lotus feet of Parampujyapada astottarasata Sri Srimad Bhakti Pramoda Puri Gosvami Maharaja in his divine remembrance:
In November of 1946, I left my home and came to Sri Devananda Gaudiya Matha in Sri Dhama Navadvipa. After a short time, in 1947, at the end of Sri Navadvipa Dhama Parikrama which was held on the occasion of the divine appearance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, I took shelter at the lotus feet of my most beloved om visnupada astottarasata Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja. He made my life successful by initiating me with harinama and diksa. After celebrating the holy festival of Gaura Purnima and Sri Dhama Parikrama, I accompanied Gurudeva to one of the branches of Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti, namely Sri Uddharana Gaudiya Matha in Chinchurah.
It was there, at Sri Uddharana Gaudiya Matha, that I had darsana of Parampujyapada astottarasata Sri Srimad Bhakti Pramoda Puri Gosvami's lotus feet for the first time. He had already accepted the renounced order on March 3, 1947 at Sri Gaura-Gadadhara Matha, Campahatti, from nitya-lila pravista om visnupada astottarasata Srila Bhakti Gaurava Vaikhanas Maharaja, one of the prominent sannyasa disciples of jagad-guru Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada.
I was very impressed by his darsana, and my most beloved Gurudeva, Sri Srila Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja, engaged me in his service. Every day I used to go with him to take bath in the Ganges nearby, carrying his outer garment, kaupin and kamandalu (water pot). After bathing I carried his wet clothes and kamandalu, now filled with water, back to our Matha, and then I fed him prasadam. Moreover, I obeyed the many instructions he used to kindly give me on various occasions. I submissively put so many questions (pariprasnena) before him, and he used to reply all my inquiries with great affection.
During our discussions in those days, he used to tell me some things about his life history. His name was previously Pramoda Bhusana. His parents were religious and from brahmana (Cakravarti) caste. He took birth on October 8, 1898 in the village of Gangananda Pura in the district of Jessore, in the present-day Bangladesa. From his very childhood he was fond of hari-kirtana. He felt so much pleasure in hearing hari-kirtana that sometimes he would become forgetful of his bodily condition.
During his student life he met a Gaudiya Vaisnava named Sri Bhaktiratnakara Thakura. Sri Bhaktiratnakara Thakura was the first person to introduce him to the books of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura. After receiving the books he studied them thoroughly, and then he began to read Sri Caitanya Caritamrta in the association of that Vaisnava.
After completing his B.Sc. degree at Calcutta University, he wanted to continue his education, but the burden of maintaining his family fell on his shoulders. He unwillingly left his studies and accepted employment at the Post Commission in Calcutta. It was during that period that he met jagad-guru nitya-lila pravista om visnupada Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada and was deeply influenced by hearing his powerful hari-katha. In 1923, on the auspicious occasion of Sri Krsna Janmastami, he received diksa from Srila Prabhupada at Uttadanga Gaudiya Matha and was given the name Sri Pranavananda Brahmacari.
Srila Prabhupada was immensely satisfied by his steadiness, full surrender, loving service endowed with bhava, and especially his art of writing. Therefore he was given the responsibility to manage sankirtana, preaching, hari-katha, brhad-mrdanga, the Dainika Nadia Prakasa, and the writing of articles for Sri Gaudiya Matha's journals. For the service of the brhad-mrdanga, he stayed at different places such as Calcutta, Krsna Nagar, and Mayapura. For the sake of preaching gaura-vani, the message of Gaurasundara, he traveled not only throughout Bengal, but also to so many different places throughout India, and he met with great success. He sometimes traveled with Srila Prabhupada and sometimes with the senior intimate sannyasa disciples of Srila Prabhupada. In this way he served his Gurudeva by internal, mano'bhista seva, fulfilling his innermost cherished desires.
After the disappearance of Srila Prabhupada, Srila Bhakti Pramoda Puri Gosvami Maharaja stayed for a few months with my beloved Gurupadapadma Sri Srila Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja, Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Gosvami Maharaja, Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridhara Gosvami Maharaja, and other god-brothers. I had a wonderful opportunity to serve him and hear his hari-katha during that period. He had so much affection for me that he used to consider me his disciple, and I used to respect him as I respected my Gurudeva. On numerous occasions he blessed me with abundant kindness.
Once, when we were at Chinchurah Matha, we went together for bathing in the Ganga. I was carrying his cloth and water-pot, and also my own lota (cup) that I still had from my purvasrama (previous home life). I put them down on the ghata and we both entered the water of Bhagavati Bhagirathi for bathing. After bathing I found that my lota was gone. It had been carried away by the waves of the Ganga, which was very near the ocean at that place. Pujyacarana Puri Maharaja smiled and said, "You left your home, family, wife, son and wealth to become an akincana-vaisnava, so what need is there to be attached to a lota?" I was also smiling. Taking his wet clothes and water-pot, we returned to the matha. As long as he was present, every time we met he used to remind me of this pastime, and I also cannot forget the mercy he showed to me throughout my life.
After a long time, Prapujya-carana Srila Puri Gosvami Maharaja was given the responsibility of serving the Deity of Sri Ananta Vasudeva of Kalna. The King of Vardhman was unable to serve this Deity. When he observed the pure disposition and devotion of Srila Puri Gosvami Maharaja, he was immensely impressed and offered the service of Ananta Vasudeva to him. Later, he took charge of the temple along with his disciples. I also went to have his darsana there many times at Kalna.
I always saw him busy in writing. His pen never stopped. He used to spend every moment in writing articles about suddha-bhakti, whenever a chance came after completing his fixed number of rounds of harinama, serving the Deity, and studying the sastras. He also used to submit many articles to the journals of different Gaudiya Mathas. Especially, he was the editor-in-chief of "Sri Caitanya Vani", the journal of Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Gosvami Maharaja's Matha.
In the last years of his life, he stayed in Sridhama Mayapura, where he established Sri Gopinatha Gaudiya Matha at Isodyana. In the last stage of his life he stayed at Bankim Muhana Cakratirtha in Sri Purusottama Dhama. Finally, he entered into nitya-lila on November 22nd 1999 at 2.07 am.
Whenever I used to go to Sridhama Vrndavana, Sridhama Mayapura or Calcutta, I had the good fortune to have darsana of his lotus feet. At that time I used to present to him whatever new publications we had produced from our Matha in the Hindi language such as Jaiva Dharma, Caitanya Siksamrta, the Teachings of Sriman Mahaprabhu, Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura's Bindu, Kirana and Kana, Upadesamrta, Manah Siksa, Raga Vartma Candrika and also some English publications. He was delighted to receive all these books from me, and in return he inspired and instructed me to publish more books of Gaudiya Vaisnava siddhanta. Whenever we would meet he would ask, "What new publications are coming in Hindi?"
He was present to pacify us at the time our beloved Gurudeva entered into nitya-lila and also when the Samadhi Mandira was established at Sri Devananda Gaudiya Matha. During his visit, he told us with a melting heart, "Vinoda Da (Srila Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja) was very affectionate to us. Whenever we knew that Vinoda Da was not in Mayapura, we would also cancel our scheduled program to visit Mayapura." He said that there was no one as warmly affectionate as Vinoda Da.
So Srila Puri Gosvami Maharaja was fully surrendered and one of the internal associates of Srila Prabhupada. At the time of performing kirtana and giving lectures he would close his eyes, which were brimming with tears, being incessantly immersed in the bhava of bhakti. He would express such deep realizations while discussing bhakti-tattva and rasa-tattva that his whole audience would be enchanted. He was the embodiment of Sriman Mahaprabhu's verse, "trnad api sunicena". He was a parama-bhagavata and guna-grahi (deeply appreciative of others' merit). Until this very day, I never saw him criticize anyone, and he even used to give inspiration and respect to this insignificant person who is thoroughly bereft of bhakti.
I always saw him walking with his danda, traveling barefoot in Navadvipa Dhama and eighty-four krosa Vraja Mandala Parikrama. Even in his advanced age, I saw him doing parikrama, without eating and drinking, always singing kirtanas and speaking hari-katha.
I went to see him almost one month and fifteen days prior to his divine disappearance. At that time he was not speaking at all and he kept his eyes closed. I caught hold of his lotus feet and said, "I am your most insignificant servant, Narayana Maharaja." Upon hearing this, he caught both of my hands in his and gave me his blessings. Then he ordered his servants to give me prasadam. I do not know if he spoke to anyone else again after that moment. He entered into nitya-lila at the age of 101 years.
He was expert in all siddhanta and a pure devotee in the line of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada, and I felt so much inspiration from his blessings and instructions. Now, after his entrance into the divine aprakata-lila, I am bereft of the touch of that hand which used to confer upon me profuse blessings and inspiration, and thus I feel a profound sadness in his absence.
In this way I am offering sri sri puspanjali at the lotus feet of such a parama-niscincana mahabhagavata, Sri Sri Bhakti Pramoda Puri Gosvami Maharaja. May he be pleased to shower his causeless mercy upon me.

Tridandi Swami Srimad Bhakti Promode Puri Goswami Maharaja appeared on October 8, 1898 during the auspicious hour of brahma-muhurta. Along with the study of Sanskrit, Promode Bhusan was engaged in worshipping family Deities of Sri Sri Radha Gopinath.

His reverent service mood was evident even as a young man. Once he forgot to cover the Lord with a blanket on a winter night. That night he shivered uncontrollably with chills and fever. The Lord appeared in a dream and showed him that he was without his blanket. The young Promode Bhusan woke up and only after he covered the Lord did the fever subside.

Promode Bhusan completed his education in Jessore then went to Calcutta where he attended Bangabasi College, graduating with honors in Chemistry. In 1917, he met his Guru, Prabhupada Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur. From the first meeting, an eternal bond was made. Sri Promode Bhusan accepted Prabhupada in his heart as his eternal master.

His strong attachment to spiritual life brought him regularly to his Guru's lectures at the Calcutta ashram of Sri Gaudiya Math. In 1923, on the holy occasion of Sri Krishna Janmastami, he surrendered at his Guru's lotus feet and simultaneously took Harinama and Brahmin initiations. He became known as Sri Pranabananda Brahmachary--a full-fledged member of Sri Gaudiya Matha.

Sri Pranabananda's service attitude was so exemplary that soon Prabhupada Srila Saraswati Thakur established him as the editor of Gaudiya Matha publications. Pranabananda Brahmachary synopsized Srila Saraswati Thakur's lectures, elaborated on them, and with Prabhupada's approval, they were published in various periodicals including the only daily spiritual newspaper, Dainik Nadia Prakash.

In recognition of his scholarship, Saraswati Thakur honored him with the title, Sri Pranabananda Brahmachary Mahopadeshak Pratna Vidyalankar.

Srila Puri Maharaja served in close association with his Guru for thirteen years. Srila Prabhupada requested that Sri Pranabananda Brahmachary accept Tridandi sannyasa. Humbly considering himself unfit, he declined.

At the time of Prabhupada's aprakatalila, Sri Pranabananda Brahmachary held his guru's lotus-feet to his chest so that they might remain forever enthroned in his heart. After Srila Prabhupada's disappearance Sri Pranabananda Brahmachary Mahopadeshak Pratna Vidyalankar began extensive traveling and preaching.

In 1942 Srila Prabhupada Saraswati Thakur appeared in a dream and gave his divine order that Sri Pranabananda accept Tridandi sannyasa. Sannyasa initiation and the danda were given by his Godbrother Srila Bhakti Gourava Vaikhanasa Maharaja in Champahati Sri Sri Gaura-Gadadhara temple.

For more than seven years, Tridandi Swami Bhakti Promode Puri Goswami Maharaja served as the head pujari and temple president of Sri Sri Yogapith, the birth place of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, discovered by Srila Bhakti Vinode Thakur. During that time, the Deities were internally urging him to take up scriptural research and deeper meditation.

He moved to a humble cottage on the banks of the Ganga in Kalna, living with his beloved Deities Sri Sri Radha Gopinath. During that time, the Kind of Burdwan (a district of West Bengal) was extremely impressed with his saintly character and on the appearance day of Sri Radhika, 1958, he offered his large temple to Srila Puri Maharaja. He engaged in service at that temple for several years.

Later, his Godbrother, Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhab Goswami Maharaja, requested that Gurumaharaj come to his Matha to edit spiritual periodicals and books. Gurumaharaja entrusted the temple in Kalna to his younger brother and went to Calcutta to take up his new service. Additionally, His Holiness Om Visnupada Tridandi Swami Sri Bhakti Dayita Goswami Maharaja requested that he take full charge of his monthly magazine, Sri Chaitanya Vani, as president of the editorial board. He also became editor-in-chief of the monthly magazine Sri Gaudiya published from Sri Chaitanya Math, Mayapur. At the age of 100, Srila Puri Maharaja continues to fulfill this role with great care and devotion.

Presently, Gurumaharaj is the senior most living disciple of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur. Additionally, he was the lifelong, intimate associate of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridara Dev Goswami Maharaja, who he considered the benign guardian of the celestial wealth of Srila Rupa Goswami.

Srila Puri Maharaja was well known as the best kirtana leader in the early days of Sri Gaudiya Math and often sang on radio programs. He is well known for his extensive knowledge and meticulous practice of deity worship and installation. His service to Srila Saraswati Thakur installing deities in new temples made him known as Pujapada.

In addition to his high position and qualifications, many are attracted to Tridandi Swami B. P. Puri Goswami Maharaja's divine personality. He emanates sweetness and love. He is seen as our well-wishing guide to the spiritual domain. The opening of the Gopinath Gaudiya Matha, during the 1989 Gour Purnima Tithi, provided a doorway to that spiritual domain.

Our humble prayer is that we may always be situated at his holy lotus feet which are our only access to the predecessor Acaryas and their divine teachings. We pray that we may be engaged in the eternal service of Sri Guru and Gauranga and Sri Sri Radha Gopinath under the divine direction of Srila Bhakti Promode Puri Goswami Maharaja.
(Reprinted from the Srila Bhakti Promode Puri Goswami Maharaja's 1996 Vyasa Puja Book)

Sri Caitanya Gaudiya Matha is a branch of the Caitanya tree that was established by Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Maharaja, a disciple of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. Srila Bhakti Promode Puri Gosvami, also a disciple of Sri Srila Prabhupada, resided in the Calcutta branch of the Sri Caitanya Gaudiya Matha for almost thirty years. He served there faithfully as a pujari and preacher. His bhajan kutir there is still maintained by his disciples.
The current president-acarya of this mission and Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Maharaj's successor is Srila Bhakti Ballabha Tirtha Gosvami.

Navaratri Festival 2011

Hari Govinda

Amanhã inicio do Navaratri...adoração as Devis

Navarátri é uma festa muito popular na Índia e, como toda celebração hindu, tem um simbolismo rico. São nove noites (nava = nove + ratri = noite) dedicadas às três Devis (deidades femininas) principais: Durgá, Lakshmi e Saraswati.

Durgá é uma forma feroz e destruidora de Párvatí, a esposa de Shiva. Contam os Puránas que Durgá surgiu da união de todas as forças dos Devas (deidades masculinas) que individual e coletivamente não puderam vencer o Asura (demônio) Mahisásura, que em forma de búfalo oprimia deuses e homens. Ela é representada montando um tigre ou um leão, tendo 8, 10 ou 12 braços e cada um empunhando uma arma. Durgá é forte, destemida e implacável, conseguindo destruir qualquer tipo de Asura. Os Devas simbolizam nossa natureza superior e nossas tendências positivas, e, os Asuras, nossa natureza inferior e nossas tendências negativas. Devas e Asuras estão em conflito permanente (as exigências da natureza inferior contra as aspirações da superior) e muitas vezes os Devas precisam unir suas forças para conseguir vencer. Mahisásura simboliza o pior inimigo: a ignorância, o ego. Para destruí-lo, só mesmo "a união de todos os Devas" (tendências positivas), ou seja, a Mãe Durgá, a força e a coragem de acabar (vairagya ou desapego) com todos os apegos e desejos. O veículo de Durgá, tigre ou leão, representa o "ego domado", ou seja, no seu devido lugar, a serviço dos Devas (forças positivas), despojado de sua arrogância e orgulho e investindo com a beleza da força.

Lakshmi simboliza a riqueza em todos os níveis, especialmente a espiritual. Contam os Puránas que ela surgiu do Oceano de Leite: os Devas e Asuras fizeram uma trégua para, num esforço conjunto, bater o Oceano de Leite e produzir o Amritam (néctar da Imortalidade). Escolheram uma montanha (Manthara) para servir de batedor e o "rei" das serpentes (Vásuki) para servir de corda. Devas de um lado, Asuras de outro, começa a batedura, que "produz" muitas coisas interessantes, bonitas e poderosas, dentre elas Lakshmi. O Oceano de Leite representa a mente sáttvica, que, quando "batida" (durante o questionamento, etc.), "produz" riqueza espiritual (valores positivos, discernimento, concentração, etc.), que culmina no Conhecimento do Eu.

Saraswati representa a Sabedoria, a meta de toda busca espiritual. Seu nome literalmente quer dizer "Aquela que dá a essência (Sara) do nosso próprio Ser (swa)". É representada com quatro braços, segurando numa das mãos um málá (colar de contas ou sementes) e numa outra um manuscrito (os Vedas). Com as outras mãos toca uma Víná (instrumento musical). Veste um sári branco e está sentada numa rocha ou lótus, à beira de um rio. Seu veículo é o cisne ou pavão. O sári branco simboliza a pureza do conhecimento, e o lótus também. O fato de estar sentada na rocha mostra que a sabedoria é a base sólida onde o sábio se senta relaxado enquanto a vida (o rio) passa com todos os seus acontecimentos. O málá e os Vedas representam os meios para se atingir a Sabedoria: o estudo das escrituras (escutar o ensinamento e refletir sobre ele) e a meditação. A Vína simboliza todas as artes, ofícios, estudos e todo tipo de conhecimento, e também a devoção, ou seja, o relacionamento com o Criador.

As nove noites dedicadas às Devis representam a escuridão da ignorância que precisa ser "destruída" e "transformada" em dia luminoso. O primeiro passo é atacar os desejos e apegos. Por isso, Durgá é invocada nas três primeiras noites. Depois dessa "luta", dessa "limpeza", começamos a "produzir" nossa riqueza espiritual, simbolizada pela veneração à Lakshmi nas três noites seguintes, e só então poderemos chegar à sabedoria que Saraswati representa, sendo por isso venerada nas três últimas.

Navarátri culmina com o décimo dia, chamado Vijayadasami (Dia da Vitória), ou Vidyárambha (início do conhecimento), quando um boneco é queimado ou lançado ao mar, simbolizando a destruição do ego. Durante as nove noites, cada etapa simboliza uma vitória na direção da Meta, e o nascer do décimo dia representa a vitória final, a luz do conhecimento que acaba com a escuridão da ignorância.

                                                                Jay Durgé ! Mata Di Ki Jay!

All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!!! All glories to Sri Sri Radha Vinode Bihariji!!!

Gurudeva Smaranamrtam


Questions and Answers with Srila Gurudeva

Questions and Answers with Srila Gurudeva

tradução eletronica

1) Por que você criar o Bhaktivedanta Trust International? Qual é o seu propósito?
Srila Gurudeva: Eu tenho pregado o vani de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu e Sri Rupa-Raghunath em todas as partes do mundo. Eu também tenho livros impressos e distribuídos em todos os lugares ao redor do mundo. Estas são as duas características principais da minha missão. Então, assim como a pregação ea impressão está acontecendo na minha presença, de uma forma similar, também depois de mim, eu quero o vani de Sri Rupa-Raghunath e Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu para continuar a ser pregado em todo o mundo, mas mais ainda - em proporção muito maior.

Tenho também estabeleceu Bhaktivedanta Trust International (bhakti) por outra razão, que é manter a minha missão unificada, agora e depois de mim. Eu quero que todos os Sannyasis qualificados e pregadores que estão pregando a minha missão será unidos por relações afetivo.

2) Quais são as responsabilidades da Trust?

Srila Gurudeva: A Confiança tem a responsabilidade de assegurar que a nossa missão no mundo de pregar o vani de Sri Rupa-Raghunath e Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu continua, e para garantir que meus livros são impressos e distribuídos, ambos pregando e distribuição de livros deve ir em um forma semelhante ao que está acontecendo agora. Além disso, o Confiança tem a responsabilidade de manter os nossos pregadores unificada e para manter a pregação passa muito tempo no futuro.

3) Quais são as responsabilidades do Conselho Consultivo?

Srila Gurudeva: Os membros do Conselho Consultivo são responsáveis ​​por aconselhar sobre os vários aspectos de como pregar a minha missão e distribuição de livros pode continuar sem interrupção.

4) E quais são as responsabilidades da confiança em relação à sociedade?

Srila Gurudeva: No caso de uma quebra de confiança dentro da Sociedade, a Confiança é responsável para dar aconselhamento adequado para a Sociedade e, se necessário corrigi-lo.

5) Qual é a relação entre o IPV e seu Sannyasis?

Srila Gurudeva: Deve haver comportamento amoroso e afetuoso entre o IPV e pregadores meu e sannyasis. O sannyasis deve ser respeitada. Eles são um dos membros principais da minha pregação, e sem a ajuda deles eu não posso pregar em todo o mundo. Como resultado, é adequada para todos a respeitá-los. Se os curadores ou alguém tiver sugestões, eles podem oferecê-los ao Sannyasis de forma adequada e respeitosa, para que a pregação do meu vani vai acontecer em todos os lugares.

6) Qual a visão que você tem para a Sociedade Internacional de Yoga Pure Bhakti?

Srila Gurudeva: Eu desejo que as pessoas em todos os lugares entender Bhakti pura como praticado e pregado por Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Bhakti pura é também chamada de Prema Bhakti. Prema Bhakti é encontrada somente nas atividades e vidas de nossos Rupanuga Acharyas e em nenhum outro lugar. É o desejo de nosso Acharyas Rupanuga que as glórias de bhava parakiya unnata-ujjvala das gopis, como exemplificado por Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, são pregados em todo o mundo.

Srila Rupa Gosvamipada estabelecida a grandeza do bhava parakiya das gopis através evidência bíblica e lógica. Ele afirmou que o relacionamento upapati (amante) entre homens e mulheres comuns é repugnante e é um caminho para o inferno. Em contraste, não há falha no bhava parakiya de relacionamento do Senhor Krishna com as gopis. Como Parabrahma Ele próprio é o herói e as gopis que são os prakash de Sua svarupa shakti são Suas heroínas impecável. Com esse entendimento, o propósito e objetivo de prema bhakti (bhakti suddha), como praticado e pregado por Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, é o objetivo e visão para nossa Sociedade.

7) Você vê os curadores como diretores ou gerentes de sua Sociedade?

Srila Gurudeva: Meu entendimento é que os curadores são Sevaks (servos) de todos. Eles devem se comportar humildemente e respeitosamente com os membros da Sociedade. Os curadores não são os controladores ou administradores de ninguém, mas eles são servos de todos. Esta é a minha visão. Desta forma, tornando-se humilde e manso, dando o devido respeito a todos sem esperar respeito em troca, e comportando-se com amor e carinho. Isso por si só é o dever de Curadores.

8.) Caso o Confiança fazem relatórios financeiros para a Sociedade?

Srila Gurudeva: Se você acha que é possível apresentar esta, então você pode fazê-lo.

9) Quem são os curadores responsáveis ​​perante, especialmente em sua ausência?

Srila Gurudeva: Se os curadores estão fazendo algo errado, então os membros da sociedade devem aconselhá-lo, seja através do Conselho Consultivo ou diretamente. A Sociedade pode dar conselhos ao afirmar que não é bom. E os curadores devem aceitar os seus conselhos.

10) Se eles relatam suas atividades publicamente aos membros da Sociedade?

Srila Gurudeva: Alguns assuntos exigem discrição e por isso deve ser mantida em sigilo, mas as questões que são benéficas para o público deve ser divulgado ao público.

11) Como você quer que os curadores de agir? Quais são os princípios orientadores para eles seguirem na execução de suas responsabilidades?

Srila Gurudeva: Eu já respondi a essa pergunta. (Veja a questão n º 7.)

12) Por que você escolheu esses curadores particular?

Srila Gurudeva: Para garantir que a minha missão (isto é, a vani de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, que foi praticado por ele) deve ser pregado em toda parte e que meus livros devem ser impressos e distribuídos, é por isso que eu selecionei estes curadores. Eu vi que estes curadores são entregue a mim, que eles se renderam tudo para mim e que eles não mantêm um mesmo paisa por si mesmos. Estes Brahmacharis e entrega Sannyasis tudo para mim, o que quer que coletamos de pranami (recolha, bhiksha) - até o último montante único, sem manter sequer um único paisa por si mesmos. Em vez disso, dar-lhes dinheiro para suas despesas. Depois de ver a sinceridade de seu dever e obrigação (kartavya parayanata) I nomeou como curadores.

13) Alguns dizem que eles são de alguma forma sobre o Confiança, porque eles têm dinheiro e bens? Isso é verdade?

Srila Gurudeva: Alguns dizem que eu nomeado esses curadores, porque alguns deles são ricos, ter dinheiro e bens. Isso é completamente falso. Só depois de ver seu atma samarpan (entrega a mim), seu guru nistha e todos os serviços, tenho nomeado como curadores. Eles me ajudaram e continuam me ajudando com Govardhan Matemática, Matemática Navadvipa, Bhavan Gopinath, Matemática Durvasa, e com minhas publicações. Eles também pregam e compreender nossa filosofia. Eles têm total confiança em mim.

14) Os curadores têm alguma influência sobre você Srila Gurudeva? Você toma decisões por causa do que eles dizem? Por favor, explique isso em detalhes Srila Gurudeva.

Srila Gurudeva: Dizer que os curadores influência minhas decisões é completamente falsa. Ao fazer as minhas decisões que eu não sou influenciada por ninguém. Eu só tomar decisões que sejam adequados e apropriados para Hari-Guru Vaishnava-seva. Tomo decisões que são favoráveis ​​e úteis para que seva e que é benéfico para o bem-estar do público.

15) Alguns devotos sentem que todo o poder e autoridade para tomar decisões para a sociedade é concentrada nas mãos dos Curadores IPV. Eles se preocupam com isso. Srila Gurudeva, que é o seu comentário?

Srila Gurudeva: Alguns devotos sentem que todo o poder e autoridade para tomar decisões para a sociedade é concentrada nas mãos dos Curadores IPV e não em minhas mãos. Mas isso é completamente falso. Os curadores IPV não tomar suas próprias decisões. Eles consideram uma questão e fazer recomendações para mim. Eles aconselham-me o que eles acham que é a decisão certa. Quando eles estão errados, digo-lhes isso e eu decido. Se algum ajuste for necessário, posso fazer uma mudança. Eles agem como servos, nada mais.

16) Por outro lado, alguns devotos segurar as suspeitas sobre o caráter ea integridade dos curadores. Eles acham que os curadores não são importantes em tudo e que eles só estão interessados ​​em dinheiro e prestígio que compra-lhes um tratamento de privilégio, e instalações especiais. Alguns devotos acho que sua nomeação é o seu truque de amor a envolvê-los, mas que não há necessidade de pensar nelas como tendo qualquer valor para os devotos em geral. Srila Gurudeva, que é o seu comentário?

Srila Gurudeva: Eu entendo que nenhum daqueles devotos que tenho nomeado como curadores têm mau caráter. Pelo contrário, a vida eo caráter de todos esses curadores são puros e sagrados. Eu tenho os nomeou como Curador somente depois testá-las em todos os sentidos. Errar é humano. Se eles estão errados ou cometer um erro, então como Guru eu corrigi-los. Eles aceitam a minha correção completamente. Eu envolvê-los em serviço e eles são entregues, por isso, se há alguma discrepância são perdoáveis ​​e sua vida e caráter deve ser entendido como sendo puro e sagrado. Senhor Krishna também disse no Gita (9:30) - "api cet suduracaro ..." o que significa que "Mesmo que um homem de caráter abominável se engaja em My ananya-bhajana, ele ainda está para ser considerado um sadhu, devido a estar situado justamente em bhakti. "Mesmo que por qualquer razão que devoto é fraco, se ele tem ananya (unidirecionado) bhava para Bhagavan, todos os seus defeitos vai desaparecer, ser corrigido em um futuro próximo. Como tal, ele deve ser considerado nada além de um sadhu.

Existe alguém no mundo que é impecável? Se aqueles que têm suspeitas ou questionar os motivos curadores, podem-se dizer que sua própria vida e caráter é completamente puro e sem culpa? Acho que não. Eu não acho que qualquer um pode fazer essa reivindicação. Pelo contrário, é o acusador, que tem tantas culpas, anarthas tantos, que não vêem em si mesmos, mas que eles vêem em outros. Só o Senhor Sri Krishna e eu saber sobre uma outra pessoa falhas e anarthas. Se alguns devotos acho que minha nomeação deles é o meu truque de amor a envolvê-los em seva Bhagavan - eles são completamente errados. Sim, eu quero envolver todos no serviço de Deus Supremo, sejam eles homens ou mulheres, grhasthas, brahmacharis ou sannyasis. E pensar que eu peguei-los para envolvê-los em seva Bhagavan não é verdade. Eu sei que todos os meus discípulos de alguma forma têm anarthas em seus corações. Isso não importa porque eu quero envolvê-los todos em seva, eu quero corrigir seus egos falsos e remover seus anarthas.

17) Você não acha que existem pessoas mais qualificadas para eleger a sua confiança? Pessoas que são devotos melhor e que são mais rendeu para você?

Srila Gurudeva: Quando eu fiz primeiramente o Confiança, na época eu os curadores selecionados foram os mais qualificado para assumir as responsabilidades de seus cargos. Pode ser que os outros estão agora mais qualificados, grhasthas, sannyasis ou outros pregadores. Ainda assim, os curadores aceitaram a responsabilidade. Eu disse que eles são servos de todos. Eu quero que todos se unem em amor, confiança e afeto. Todos e cada um deve respeitar uns aos outros. Isso vai me agradar. Além disso, eu sei que ter qualidades como ser um bom aluno, ser inteligente, qualidades muito ricos e outros - não são importantes. A menos e até que haja rendição ao Sri Guru, então todas as qualidades e atributos não têm valor. Se render ao Sri Guru está presente, então e só então fazer essas qualidades têm significado. Todas as coisas boas ou ruins são conciliados e ajustados por render-se a Sri Guru e da agência de sua krpa (misericórdia).
