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.

Jai Gauranga!!!

The auspicious occasion of Sri Gaura Purnima is coming up soon!

"I worship Sri Caitanyadeva, whose hair is intertwined with beautiful garlands of pearls, whose face is splendorous like a radiant moon, whose limbs are smeared with candana and aguru and who, adorned with wonderful clothes, garlands and transcendental, glittering ornment, dances while absored in ecstaties of sweet mellows. His body of golden complexion, being adorned with the ornaments of bhava, makes Him appear like an enchanting Cupid amidst the presence of His intimate associates."

- as quoted in Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur's book, Sri Bhajan Rahasya, commentated on by Sri Srimad Bhaktivednta Narayana Goswami Maharaja
