Krishna Kirtan

While Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued to speak on the transcendental pastimes and characteristics of Lord Kṛṣṇa, King Parīkṣit, upon hearing him, became more and more enthusiastic and wanted to hear further. Śukadeva Gosvāmī next narrated the story of Dvivida, the gorilla who was killed by Lord Balarāma.

This gorilla was a great friend of Bhaumāsura's, or Narakāsura's, who was killed by Kṛṣṇa in connection with his kidnapping sixteen thousand princesses from all over the world. Dvivida was the minister of King Sugrīva. His brother, Mainda, was also a very powerful gorilla king. When Dvivida gorilla heard the story of his friend Bhaumāsura's being killed by Lord Kṛṣṇa, he planned to create mischief throughout the country in order to avenge the death of Bhaumāsura. His first business was to set fires in villages, towns, and industrial and mining places, as well as in the residential quarters of the mercantile men who were busy dairy farming and protecting cows. Sometimes he would uproot a big mountain and tear it to pieces. In this way he created great disturbances all over the country, especially in the province of Kathwar. The city of Dvārakā was situated in this Kathwar province, and because Lord Kṛṣṇa used to live in this city, Dvivida specifically made it his target of disturbance.

Dvivida was as powerful as 10,000 elephants. Sometimes he would go to the seashore, and with his powerful hands he would create so much disturbance in the sea that he would overflood the neighboring cities and villages. Often he would go to the hermitages of great saintly persons and sages and cause a great disturbance by smashing their beautiful gardens and orchards. Not only did he create disturbances in that way, but sometimes he would pass urine and stool on their sacred sacrificial arena. He would thus pollute the whole atmosphere. He also kidnapped both men and women, taking them away from their residential places to the caves of the mountains. Putting them within the caves, he would close the entrances with large chunks of stone, like the bhṛṅgī insect, which arrests and carries away many flies and other insects and puts them within the holes of the trees where he lives. He thus regularly defied the law and order of the country. Not only that, but he would sometimes pollute the female members of many aristocratic families by forcibly raping them.

While creating such great disturbance all over the country, sometimes he heard very sweet musical sounds from the Raivataka Mountain, and so he entered that mountainous region. There he saw that Lord Balarāma was present in the midst of many beautiful young girls, enjoying their company while engaged in singing and dancing. He became captivated by the beautiful features of Lord Balarāma's body, each and every part of which was very beautiful, decorated as He was with a garland of lotus flowers. Similarly, all the young girls present, dressed and garlanded with flowers, exhibited much beauty. Lord Balarāma seemed to be fully intoxicated from drinking the Vāruṇī beverage, and His eyes appeared to be rolling in a drunken state. Lord Balarāma appeared just like the king of the elephants in the midst of many she-elephants.

This gorilla by the name of Dvivida could climb up on the trees and jump from one branch to another. Sometimes he would jerk the branches, creating a particular type of sound, "Kila, kila," so that Lord Balarāma was greatly distracted from the pleasing atmosphere. Sometimes Dvivida would come before the women and exhibit different types of caricatures. By nature young women are apt to enjoy everything with laughter and joking, and when the gorilla came before them they did not take him seriously, but simply laughed at him. However, the gorilla was so rude that even in the presence of Balarāma he began to show the lower part of his body to the women, and sometimes he would come forward to show his teeth while moving his eyebrows. He disrespected the women, even in the presence of Balarāma. Lord Balarāma's name suggests that He is not only very powerful, but that He takes pleasure in exhibiting extraordinary strength. So He took a stone and threw it at Dvivida. The gorilla, however, artfully avoided being struck by the stone. In order to insult Balarāma, the gorilla took away the earthen pot in which the Vāruṇī was kept. Dvivida, being thus intoxicated, with his limited strength began to tear off all the valuable clothes worn by Balarāma and the accompanying young girls. He was so puffed up that he thought that Balarāma could not do anything to chastise him, and he continued to offend Balarāmajī and His companions.

When Lord Balarāma personally saw the disturbances created by the gorilla and heard that he had already performed many mischievous activities all over the country, He became very angry and decided to kill him. Immediately He took His club in His hands. The gorilla could understand that now Balarāma was going to attack him. In order to counteract Balarāma, he immediately uprooted a big oak tree, and with great force he came and struck at Lord Balarāma's head. Lord Balarāma, however, immediately caught hold of the big tree and remained undisturbed, just like a great mountain. To retaliate, He took His club by the name of Sunanda and began to hit the gorilla with it. The gorilla's head was severely injured. Currents of blood flowed from his head with great force, but the stream of blood enhanced his beauty like a stream of liquid manganese coming out of a great mountain. The striking of Balarāma's club did not even slightly disturb him. On the contrary, he immediately uprooted another big oak tree, and after clipping off all its leaves, he began to strike Balarāma's head with it. But Balarāma, with the help of His club, tore the tree to pieces. Since the gorilla was very angry, he took another tree in his hands and began to strike Lord Balarāma's body. Again Lord Balarāma tore the tree to pieces, and the fighting continued. Each time the gorilla would bring out a big tree to strike Balarāma, Lord Balarāma would tear the tree to pieces by the striking of His club. The gorilla Dvivida would clutch another tree from another direction and again attack Balarāma in the same way. As a result of this continuous fighting, the forest became treeless. When no more trees were available, Dvivida took help from the hills and threw large pieces of stone, like rainfall, upon the body of Balarāma. Lord Balarāma, also in a great sporting mood, began to smash those big pieces of stone into mere pebbles. The gorilla, being bereft of all trees and stone slabs, now stood before Him and waved his strong fists. Then, with great force, he began to beat the chest of Lord Balarāma with his fists. This time Lord Balarāma became most angry. Since the gorilla was striking Him with his hands, He would not strike him back with His own weapons, the club or the plow. Simply with His fists He began to strike the collarbone of the gorilla. This striking proved to be fatal to Dvivida, who immediately vomited blood and fell unconscious upon the ground. When the gorilla fell, it appeared that all the hills and forests tottered.

After this horrible incident, all the Siddhas, great sages and saintly persons from the upper planetary system began to shower flowers on the person of Lord Balarāma, and sounds glorifying the supremacy of Lord Balarāma were vibrated. All of them began to chant, "All glories to Lord Balarāma! Let us offer our respectful obeisances unto Your lotus feet. By Your killing this great demon, Dvivida, You have initiated an auspicious era for the world." All such jubilant sounds of victory were heard from outer space. After killing the great demon Dvivida and being worshiped by showers of flowers and glorious sounds of victory, Balarāma returned to His capital city, Dvārakā.

Sri Rupa Manjari Pada

Sri Rupa Manjari Pada

by Srila Narottama Thakur

Sri-rupa-manjari-pada, sei mora sampada,
sei mor bhajana-pujana
sei mora prana-dhana, sei mora abharana,
sei mor jivanera jivanasei mora rasa-nidhi, sei mor vancha-siddhi,
sei mor vedera dharama
sei brata, sei tapa, sei mora mantra-japa,
sei mor dharama-karama
anukula habe viddhi, se-pade hoibe siddhi,
nirakhibo e dui nayane
se rupa-madhuri-rasi, prana-kuvalaya-sasi,
praphullita habe nisi-dine
tuya adarsana-ahi, garale jaralo dehi,
ciro-dina tapita jivana
ha ha rupa koro doya, deho more pada-chaya,
narottama loilo sarana
Commentary by Srila Bhakti Rakshaka Sridhara Maharaja :
Sri-rupa-manjari-pada, sei mora sampada, sei mor bhajana-pujana- my everything is Sri Rupa Goswami’s holy feet. We are to discuss so many classifications and positions of rasa: santa, dasya, sakhya, vatsalya, madhura. And in madhura-rasa Radharani’s camp is special. Then again there are so many gradations of sakhis. Then there is the class of the manjaris, the younger girls, and they have more freedom to approach: when Radha and Govinda are in union in a private environment, the manjaris can still approach. They have such freedom to visit Them. If any materials of service are necessary, the sakhis send the manjaris to that place. The sakhis do not approach there. In that way the manjaris enjoy the best confidence. The most secret service of both can be supplied through the manjaris. In the highest position they have free entrance, and their leader is Rupa Manjari. She is understood to be the leader of the whole group of younger girls, the manjaris, therefore in madhura-bhajan she is all-in-all. This has been taught to us by Narottama Thakur. For us - and the younger batch - she is our highest resort.
Sei mora sampada- my wealth is there in her feet. Sei mor bhajana-pujana - my worship and service is also in her. Sei mora prana-dhana, sei mora abharana- the very wealth and gist of my life is there; and the ornaments of my life, if any there may be, that is within her grace. Sei mor jivanera jivana - indeed, the very life of my life, if there is anything, that is also her. I am for her pleasure.
Sei mora rasa-nidhi - if there is anything, the source of any and all desirable ecstasy is only to be found there. The mine, source, and fountainhead of all rasa is there in her feet. Sei mora vancha-siddhi - and if I am to expect any other fulfilment in life, that is also there in her feet. Sei mor vedera dharama - if any duty is recommended by the Vedas for me, I would like that such duty be at her feet.
Sei brata, sei tapa - if at all there is any desired accumulation from any penance or observance of vows, that is also to be found there - sei mora mantra-japa - and the continuous repetition of a mantra in japa all ends there: all things have only one end in my case, and that is that they all meet in different phases in the feet of Rupa Manjari. If she is satisfied then the variegated nature of all sorts of my devotional practices are satisfied. Sei mor dharama-karama - and any of my conceptions of duty or activity of any phases or form all have one end and meet in one point: the holy feet of Rupa Manjari.
Anukula habe viddhi, se-pade hoibe siddhi - I only pray to the controller who is at the root of all these arrangements of affairs in this world, "Please connect me there. Oh Absolute Manager, may you grant my prayer that all my tendencies may go to attain her favour. Nirakhibo e dui nayane - and it will be so very intense and concrete as if I can see it with these eyes. It will not be vague, abstract, or imagination, but I want the most concrete realisation by the grace of the Absolute Manager."
Se rupa-madhuri-rasi, prana-kuvalaya-sasi - what sort of high class beauty is there in her holy feet! I want to jump. Let my heart be a lotus. There are two classes of lotus: the white lotus came from the sun and the red from the moon. The kuvalaya is a mixture of the two. The lustre of her body will feed me day and night as the life of my life which is compared to a kuvalaya. The kuvalaya is fed and nourished by the lustre of the moon, and her holy feet are the moon, and my very vitality is likened to the lotus. May the lustre of her beauty maintain and nourish my heart of hearts. Praphullita habe nisi-dine - and the lotus of my heart will grow by that ray, and dance.
Tuya adarsana-ahi - this is my prayer, but what is my present condition? My present condition is in the negative side, my Mistress. My present position is such that without having a sight of you, Your Grace, my heart will burn into ashes. That is my present position. Garale jaralo dehi - this is just like the poison of a cobra which produces pain within my heart. I have been bitten by a snake, and what is that snake? It is that I am not getting any direct contact with you, Your Grace. The serpent’s poison has captured my heart and I am going to die. Ciro-dina tapita jivana - and this is not a sudden thing, but from the beginning I have been suffering this sort of pain of separation from such a beautiful and hopeful life of fulfilment.
Ha ha rupa koro doya, deho more pada-chaya, narottama loilo sarana - but I have now reached the extreme position and for the last time I am begging for your favour; otherwise I am going to be finished.
This was composed by Narottama Thakur in praise of Srila Rupa Goswami. In this way he has given us light of the higher quarter of bhajan life. This sampradaya is named as the Rupanuga-sampradaya, and our Guru-parampara and all these things are adjusted according to that. He wrote many songs and they are of very substantive firmament, very ecstatic, and of deep faith.

Srila Gurudeva en el Samadhi de Sri Rupa Gosvami (Subtitulado)


A semente de bhakti

O Senhor Caitanya ensinou que apenas raras e afortunadas almas obtêm a semente de bhakti através da misericórdia de um devoto puro.

brahmanda bhramite kona bhagyavan jiva
guru-krishna-prasade paya bhakti-lata-bija

“De acordo com seu karma, todas as entidades vivas estão vagando ao longo de todo o universo. Algumas estão sendo elevadas a sistemas planetários superiores, e outras estão descendo aos sistemas planetários inferiores. Dentre muitas milhões de entidades vivas que estão vagando, uma, que seja muito afortunada, recebe a oportunidade de se associar com um mestre espiritual bona fide pela graça de Krsna. Pela misericórdia tanto de Krsna quanto do mestre espiritual, tal pessoa recebe a semente da trepadeira do serviço devocional”. (Cc Madhya 19.151)

Pregar é o primeiro dever

Srimad Bhagavatam 7.13.9

"Para os Paramahamsas, ou Sannyasis da ordem Vaisnava, pregar é o primeiro dever. Para pregar, estes Sannyasis podem aceitar os símbolos de Sannyasa, tais como a Danda e o Kamandalu, ou às vezes podem dispensá-los. De um modo geral, os Sannyasis Vaisnavas, sendo Paramahamsas, são automaticamente chamados de Babajis, e não carregam um Kamandalu ou uma Danda. Tal Sannyasi tem liberdade de aceitar ou rejeitar as insígnias de Sannyasa. Seu único pensamento é: "Onde existe a oportunidade de espalhar a Consciência de Krsna?" Às vezes, o movimento da Consciência de Krsna envia os seus representantes Sannyasis a países estrangeiros onde a Danda e o Kamandalu não são muito apreciados. Enviamos, então, nossos pregadores vestidos em roupas comuns para que apresentem nossos livros e filosofia.
Nossa única preocupação é atrair as pessoas para a Consciência de Krsna. Podemos conseguir isto vestidos de Sannyasis ou usando as vestes de um cavalheiro comum. Nosso único propósito é infundir em todos o interesse pela Consciência de Krsna."

Krsna, a Fonte de Todas as Encarnações

No Srimad Bhagavatam 1.3.26 "Krsna, a Fonte de Todas as Encarnações", Srila Prabhupada diz:

"O Senhor Krsna e o Senhor Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu não são, portanto, encarnações, mas a fonte original de todas as encarnações..."

No Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 1.6, Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami diz:

"Desejando entender a glória do amor de Radharani, as qualidades maravilhosas nEle que só Ela aprecia graças ao amor dEla, e a felicidade que Ela sente ao compreender a doçura do amor dEle, o Supremo Senhor Hari, ricamente dotado com as emoções dEla, apareceu no ventre de Srimati Saci Devi, assim como a Lua aparece do Oceano."


A benção do guru

Prabhupada, Caitanya-caritamrta,Madhya-lila 17.15

"A disciple who has actual love for his spiritual
master is endowed, by the blessings of the spiritual master, with all
confidential knowledge."

Srila Prabhupada, Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 17.15

Um discípulo que tem amor sincero pelo seu mestre espiritual é dotado, pelas bênçãos de tal mestre espiritual, com todo o conhecimento de natureza confidencial. "

Liberdade absoluta

A necessidade da alma espiritual é que ela quer sair da limitada esfera da servidão material e cumprir o seu desejo de liberdade completa. Ela quer sair do cativerio do universo material. Ele quer sentir-se iluminada e livre espíritualmente.
Essa liberdade completa é alcançada quando ela satisfaz o espírito completo, a Suprema Personalidade de Deus.

- Srila Prabhupada

Padrão de humildade

Caitanya Mahaprabhu deixou apenas oito versos, chamados Sri Sri Siksastaka. O terceiro desses versos traz: “Aquele que se considera mais baixo do que uma palha, que é mais tolerante do que uma árvore, e não espera honra pessoal, mas, ao mesmo tempo, está sempre pronto para oferecer todo o respeito a outros, pode sem dificuldade alguma cantar o santo nome do Senhor constantemente”. (Manual Vaisnava, p 17)

Este verso não deixa dúvidas quanto ao padrão de humildade, respeito e devoção esperado de um Vaisnava de coração puro rendido ao Senhor Krsna. A designação “oferecer completo respeito a todos” pode se aplicar, sem nenhuma dúvida, diretamente às pessoas de outras fés. É compulsório para os devotos do Senhor oferecerem todos os seus respeitos especialmente às pessoas sinceramente se empenhando por amar e servir Deus. Tais respeito, tolerância e humildade formam a base dos relacionamentos Vaisnavas ideais.

Religião Sectária

Srila Prabhupada escreve:

“Não advogamos nenhuma religião sectária.

Estamos interessados em despertar nosso adormecido amor por Deus. Qualquer método que nos ajude a alcançar tal plataforma é bem‐vindo”.

Em seu comentário ao Upadesamrta de Rupa Gosvami, Srila Prabhupada itera o tema: “Em todas as partes do mundo, todavia, por mais oprimida que a sociedade humana possa ser, sempre há um sistema religioso [...] Quando um sistema religioso se desenvolve e se torna amor por Deus, ele é bem sucedido”. (Néctar da Instrução, verso 4, significado)

Nadiya Godrume em portugues


Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

nadiya-godrume nityananda mahajana
patiyache nama-hatta jivera karana

Na terra de Nadiya, na ilha de Godruma, o magnânimo Nityananda Prabhu abriu uma feira do santo nome para a salvação de todas almas caídas.

(sraddhavan jana he, sraddhavan jana he)
prabhura ajnaya, bhai, magi ei bhiksa
bolo krsna, bhajo krsna, koro krsna-siksa

Ali Ele clama: “Ó homens de fé, pela ordem de Sri Gauranga, ó irmãos, imploro apenas um só pedido: Cantem ‘Krsna! ' Sirvam e adorem Krsna, e sigam Seus ensinamentos.

aparadha-sunya ho’ye loho krsna-nama
krsna mata, krsna pita, krsna dhana-prana

“Livres de ofensas, cantem o santo nome de Krsna. Krsna é nossa mãe, nosso pai, e Krsna é o tesouro de nossa vida.

krsnera samsara koro chadi’ anacara
jive doya, krsna-nama – sarva-dharma-sara

“Executem seus deveres terrenos mas em relação com Krsna, e abandonem o comportamento pecaminoso. Mostrem compaixão a todas almas caídas mediante cantar alto o santo nome de Krsna – esta é a essência de todas formas de religião.”

Emona Durmati


Emona durmati, samara bhitare, padiya achina ami
tava nija-jana, kona mahajane, pathaiya dile tumi

"O Lord, I am so unfortunate that I have fallen into this material world, but one of Your pure and elevated devotees has come to deliver me."

daya kari more, patita dekhiya, kahila amare giya
'ohe dina-jana, suna bhala katha, ullasita habe hiya

"Seeing me so fallen and wretched, he took pity on me, saying, 'O humbled soul, listen to this good news which will bring joy to your heart.'"

tomare tarite, sri krsna caitanya, navadvipe avatara
toma hena kata, dina hina jane, karilena bhava para

"Sri Krsna Caitanya has appeared in the land of Navadvipa to deliver you. He has already safely conducted so many other suffering souls across the ocean of birth and death.

vedera pratijna, rakhibara tare, rukma varna vipra suta
mahaprabhu nama, nadiya mataya, sange bhai avadhuta

"Fulfilling the promise of the Vedas, the son of a brahmana, bearing the name Mahaprabhu and of a golden complexion, has descended with His brother, the avadhuta Nityananda. Together They have overwhelmed all of Nadiya with divine ecstasy.

nanda-suta jini, caitanya gosai, nija nama kori dana
tarila jata, tumi o jaiya, laha nija paritrana

"Sri Caitanya, who is directly Krsna, the son of Nanda, has saved the world by freely distributing His own holy name. Go also and receive your deliverance.'"

se katha suniya, asiyachi, natha! tomare carana tale
bhakativinode, kandiya kandiya, apana kahini bale

"O Lord, hearing those words, Bhaktivinoda has come weeping to Your lotus feet and tells the story of his life."
