Blog Description

This blog is for sharing one of the six loving exchanges between vaishnavas - bhajana katha sravanam alapa - sharing and discussing bhajan topics with devotees.

It is also my humble attempt to follow the instruction my gurudeva would give at the end of every class: take these pastimes and instructions into your heart. Therefore in the hopes that it will make some impression in my heart, I am sharing lecture notes, quotes, book excerpts, and other words from the brahma-madhva-gaudiya sampradaya and vaisnava/is around the world.

Hear, chant, study

Srila Bhakti Prajnana Keshava Goswami Maharaja

“"You should attentively study the spiritual magazines.
As you get time you must study and discuss Kalyäna
kalpataru, Prarthanä, Caitanya-caritämrta, and so on. You
will be able to attain all perfection by offenselessly chanting .
Sri Näma reveals Himself when one hears, studies
and discusses sastra. The anarthas that you have at present
will not become prominent if you intensely perform
sravana and kirtana.”"

 - from "Association of Sadhus in the Form of Sastras" by Srila Bhakti Prajnana Keshava Goswami Maharaja, Rays of the Harmonist, no. 9, Winter 2001
