Today is Srila Gurudev’s 93rd Appearance Day celebration. Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math has compiled a sweet selection of offerings here, and more here from the Soquel seva ashram. A partial compilation of his Bengali poems and articles with their English translations is now available here in pdf format.
“So many interpretation may be in Srimad Bhagavad-gita, but when I am opening the book I am seeing there how sweet and nicely adjusted every word [is] within bhakti-yoga. And that ideal given Srila Guru Maharaj, and it’s come from Bhaktivinod Thakur’s treasury.” Morning darshan, 1st April 2007, Nabadwip. (previously published here, now with podcast link)
“What Krishna [has] given me, in this age and in this position and in this atmosphere, climate, etc., I must be satisfied with that and I praise the present, not the past and not future.” Morning darshan, 30th March 2007, Nabadwip. (podcast link)
“We are always within worried-ness, but if we will understand it, then worried-ness not will come to us. But if worried-ness not will come to us, we will be lazy and stay in some one chair and not do anything. That’s also other problem.” Morning darshan, 26th March 2007, Nabadwip. (podcast link)
“Actually this mantram we have got, that is service. Serve Mahaprabhu, serve guru, serve Vaishnava, serve to the conditioned soul who is, like you, suffering from this illusory environment–serve to them also.” Classic morning darshan, 25th March 2007, Nabadwip (podcast link) (notes/slokas)
“Raga-marga means not random anything, there [is] also some system, there also some relation, everything, but with love and affection–that is the main thing.” Morning darshan, 24th March 2007, Nabadwip. (podcast link)
“We are hearing every day [these] songs. It is my prayer to everyone: give attention to understand the meanings.” Morning darshan, 23rd March 2007, (podcast link) and informal discussion with sannyasis, 22nd March 2007 (podcast link), Nabadwip. (ed. note: sound quality of 070323 improves after 2:21)
