Sankirtan movement – Get your Ticket to Goloka

In kaliyuga there can be a time when the vast majority of people they all become practitioner of the sankirtan movement. when the sankirtan movement can be the predominate spiritual culture in the world at that time. At which time that makes everyone a peaceful, makes natural things very harmonious creates a whole new environment in the world. In any case if lord chaitanya’s movement is present that gives opportunity for people in the kaliyuga to take shelter of lord chaitanya’s movement and go back to the original position.

Why do we have to preach the message of mahaprabhu?

“why do you have to preach this message of CaitanyaMahaprabhu?
In Russia, If you preach Rama Krishna ism, if you preach impersonalism, we don’t mind. Why do you have to preach this chanting of Hare Krishna and this personal concept of real this is… we donot approve of this”, as if you know, we want their approval. He is trying to convince our Local President that you should stop preaching the message of CaitanyaMahaprabhu, this is very dangerous for us. We don’t anti-Russian or anti-American or approve of anybody for that matter. In one sense, I mean, we are actually working on behalf of Krishna, we see He is the ultimate proprietor, not America or Russia or anyone else, this are temporary designations over particular parts, so we want to see one united world. We know it is not going to happen simply due to some kind of material formula. One united world could happen due to a God consciousness.


The most merciful Avatar

Lord Caitanya is considered to be the most merciful incarnation of Visnu, of Krishna, whatever existed, because even Krishna did not do that, someone had to go and surrender to Krishna, then he would be delivered. What about the demons like Sishupal and others, they were never surrendered to Krishna, they are demons after all, they don’t care to surrender to Krishna. So therefore how they can get delivered? They may get some moksha by merging, again they can fall down. So upto Caitanya Mahaprabhu to some extent, a person who was in this material world, it was hard for them if they had the asuric bhava, it was practically impossible for them to get delivered. It would be very rare case of some special mercy, may be some mahapurush like Narada Muni or someone, they have purified some souls like that. That is the mood of the great acharyas that they purify these fallen souls. But this first time the Lord Himself came down in the mood of a devotee, therefore he wanted to deliver everyone to the last soul. In fact it’s described that His objective was to see that every soul in the universe is delivered. At least all of the human beings he wanted to get on this planet. So that’s why Lord Caitanya is glorified by this… Namo Mahavadanya Krishna Prema Pradaiyate That the great, most merciful avatar, the Lord has come as His own devotee giving Krishna prema pradayite, giving this Krishna prema which Krishna Himself did not give so freely as Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

The most merciful incarnation – Gauranga

Krishna when He came, Rama when He came, different avatars when They came, They killed the demons with Their arrows, with Their swords, Krishna killed Kamsa with His own hand. So in this way the demon was killed and delivered, and those demons also achieved moksha by the Lord’s blessings, but Lord Caitanya, He didn’t kill the body of anyone like that. Rather the part of us, that demoniac aspect of us, that asuric bhava which was discribed by the followers of the Madhava, that there are some of these asuric bhavas, they cannot get rid of it, they cannot achieve moksha or they cannot become pure. But the modern day followers, some of them have this idea but Caitanya Mahaprabhu, His power was that He would destroy that particular kalush, that covering, that avaran, that demoniac aspect of a soul and leave the purified soul, that is why Lord Caitanya is considered to be the most merciful incarnation of Visnu, of Krishna.

The rippen Banana – Kolavacha Sridhar

Kolavecha Sridhar was a very honest business man. He’d just charge exactly the market rate. He’d say, “you test the market rate, you buy wherever you like, you won’t get any cheaper than I am selling. This is the actual price.” But still Lord Chaitanya would buy only from him somehow or another. So, in this way, even what normally profit he’d make, Lord Chaitanya cut into that already taking his percent. So, he was giving more than 50%. Because Chaitanya Mahaprabhu would personally come as Nimai Pandit, he’d take a little tax, by taking some of the bananas and giving less money. So, ‘course Lord Chaitanya gave his mercy to Kolavecha Sridhar, gave him pure love for Godhead. After the ChandKhazi Samadhi, aahh… after Chand Khazi was approached and defeated by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, convinced, he gave an order to no longer disturb the Sankirtan movement of Lord Chaitanya. Then Chaitanya Mahaprabhu went with his followers and took rest at the house of Kolavecha Sridhar. So, after all the processions, talking and kirtan, Lord Chaitanya was very thirsty. So, He said, give me some water. Kolavecha Sridhar had no brass, he was very poor. He only had broken steal cup. Just the clay pot of water. Then, Lord Chaitanya saw his broken steal, cast iron mug, he went over and picked it up, poured himself a glass of water. Well, Kolavecha Sridhar had gone out trying to get another glass for Him. Cause his wasn’t … So, when he saw what Lord Chaitanya was doing, he ran back, he said “No! No! No! No! No! This is not fit for you. This is not suitable. I am giving you another glass. Don’t take from that glass. He even went to… He was so excited, he even went to take it from Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Lord Chaitanya held him back drank the water, and said, this is the sweetest water!” Lord Chaitanya, even used this broken vessel of His devotee. Giving His special mercy to Kolavecha Sridhar.

Retracing the root of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu

Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu had walked throughout India so now ISKCON has organized padayatra, retracing the root of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. And this is especially attractive for the Indians because sometimes they think well in the Western countries London, New York they are practicing devotional service in a very lavish style. But they could never practice it in a very humble way in India. When they hear that devotees are coming from all over the world and they are walking in padayatra with Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu immediately they become overwhelmed that this is something very exceptional and something very wonderful.

The real happiness is in transcendental exchanges with the Lord

Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Lord Krishna they came down to attract the living entities, to give them an opportunity that, “You are looking for happiness, this is where the real happiness is in transcendental exchanges with the Lord.” When Krishna came down, everyone in the entire world became Krishna conscious. Whenever Krishna is present it polarizes things. Devotees they immediately become attracted and they all want to discuss Krishna and the demons they also become immediately attracted, they also want to discuss Krishna but they are envious.

So all of the demons they came forward and those who became fully Krishna conscious they got the opportunity of being annihilated by Krishna materially and spiritually liberated which is what they wanted. But they didn’t have to go through any more birth. And the devotees they were able to leave this material world and to transfer themselves somewhere to Krishna’s pastimes and in this way also achieve liberation from the influence of the three modes of material nature in the association of the Supreme Lord.

Now many souls were there who did not get that opportunity, they were not humans or otherwise available for being liberated by the Lord. So again the Lord came as His own devotee, as Caitanya Mahaprabhu to attract and uplift and to send off these fallen souls back to home, back to Godhead.

A clandestine role.

when Lord Chaitanya appears also, the place that he appears is something very special. It’s not an ordinary place. That place is part of the spiritual world, it’s underneath the uh, protection of the internal energy. Just like when the Governor is coming, at that time he is not leaving his security up to us. He has got his own policeman, the government… even if he doesn’t care, the government doesn’t leave it up to us. They bring their people. They don’t want anything to happen, while he is there in their state. So the, spiritual energy, the place where Lord Caitanya is, although there is not a question of any danger, but nonetheless, the spiritual energy expands in that particular area just to accommodate the Lord’s pastimes. That, that area is permanently part of the internal energies uh, activities or jurisdiction. Just like the government have got their embassies all over the world and those embassies uh, fly the flag of that country under international law. For the holy dhama, the abodes of the Lord, in any part of the universe, wherever He appears, they are in their own ways, flying the flag of the internal energy. They are not under the domain of the material energy, you see.

Superficially it may appear that way on the crux of things uh, the material energy is maintaining. It’s like the road in front of the embassy might be maintained by the uh, municipality or they might be giving water, but technically, legally speaking, the actual embassy is underneath the jurisdiction of that specific government. So since the material energy is the expansion of the spiritual energy, there is not any conflict there, but superficially things on the dhama appear to be going on as usual in the material world, but actually the area of the holy dhama is under the spiritual potency’s jurisdiction and ultimately She reigns supreme there. And for those who have the eyes to see the spiritual vision, they can see the activities of the spiritual nature at work, they can see the pastimes of the Lord. So this is very important for us here in Hawaii, because we are living in New Navadvipa, which is uh, named after the original Navadvipa. So the Navadvipa, we should understand, what is the nature of the holy dham. Actually Navadvipa is considered to be gupta Vrindavana, or the hidden Vrindavana, it is the most uh, guarded secret in the Vedic literature, because Lord Caitanya was appearing in a disguise, He was coming in a, you can say a clandestine role. He was coming as a devotee. He wasn’t coming as a proclaimed way as the Supreme Lord. This is predicted in practically every Vedic literature, that in the Kali yuga, there’s a dozen places it predicts, the Supreme Lord comes as the devotee, not as a supreme lord. He comes in this Kali yuga after Krishna, in this uh, specific uh, covered role, where He covers His glory as a supreme personality of Godhead, and comes in the role as a devotee. Now if presently anyone was going to… any, you know… I don’t know who’d do it nowadays, but say, in the previous time the Kings, they do make spot checks amongst the citizens. You find in the Krishna book, that Krishna sometimes would dress Himself up as an ordinary citizen, and go out amongst His people to hear what they are speaking about the government, about the things, and really find out where things are at, you see. Of course now you have the newspapers doing it for you, but uh, in those times they wouldn’t, actually very intelligent not to have these kind of newspapers, so they would just have to know what the people were talking about, but if uh, in the corner they have the people with their bugles proclaiming (imitates trumpeting sound) that, “Here the King is coming in secret incognito at 5’ o clock today.” then everyone would be standing look… waiting. That would be completely ridiculous. So obviously, they don’t

So here, the Supreme Personality of Godhead… it’s given in the Vedas, that He’s coming in the Kali Yuga, so how is it that… how would it be a secret, everyone’s going to know, “Oh, here is the predicted Supreme Personality of Godhead avatara.” it would lose, its complete significance, if everybody knew that He was coming, He wouldn’t be able to act as a devotee, everyone would be calling Him out as the Supreme Lord.

The flying flag of the internal energy

We have seen in India, where many uh, ministers and Vice Presidents so on, they sometime visit our temple…the President of India, different people like… sometime visit our temple, and they tell their secretaries, uh, “You make arrangement, I am going to the Hare Krishna center.” and about a week ahead, the policeman come and say that, “So and so is coming here.” everything is ready, they check it out, where they are going to stay, the second day, the day before again some other officer comes and checks it out, then the day they come the morning, the police comes, stand in front of the main gate, in front of the temple, all around, and uh, then when they finally come, then they come with the pilot car in front, then they come, and then behind they got more police, you know, it’s like a whole thing.

Then when they come in, we have to feed them, five secretaries and their family and their attendants, and then all the six drivers for all the cars, and then another place they have to feed all the policemen. So big operation, we can see that how they simply tell their secretary, “Alright I want to go to this place, we will go and invite them”, he tells the secretary. From then on the police, and the district administration, and the state administration. One time the deputy… the Lieutenant Governor of Pondicherry, was coming to Mayapur, as a official State… Guest of the State. He was the head of the Union Territory, and he was coming as an official state guest, attending a function in Mayapur. So for 1 month before his arrival, they pa… they had repaired the road, and all… and there is a little demarcation on one side where… which, what is the roa…government road property and what is the public property, they have little white stones that sit in the side of the road. About 30 feet -40 feet from the road. So those they painted white, put those numbers on, and showing how many miles to Mayapur, things like that. They did so many things to prepare for this dignitaries arrival. So similarly Krishna, He just tells His uh, His internal energy, “I am going to appear in the material world, She or tells the material energy, everything is automatically arranged. They don’t have to uh, Krishna doesn’t have to do anymore. The thing that Krishna is coming like an ordinary living entity you see, forced by the laws of material nature, this is very big misunderstanding, which these slokas tend to educate us in, by saying that even Lord Brahma is completely underneath the uh, domain of uh, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Visnu.

So, when Lord Chaitanya appears also, the place that he appears is something very special. It’s not an ordinary place. That place is part of the spiritual world, it’s und human underneath the uh, protection of the internal energy. Just like when the Governor is coming, at that time he is not leaving his security up to us. He has got his own policeman, the government… even if he doesn’t care, the government doesn’t leave it up to us. They bring their people. They don’t want anything to happen, while he is there in their state. So the uh, spiritual energy, the place where Lord Caitanya is, although there is not a question of any danger, but nonetheless, the spiritual energy expands in that particular area just to accommodate the Lord’s pastimes. That, that area is permanently part of the internal energies uh, activities or jurisdiction. Just like the government have got their embassies all over the world and those embassies uh, fly the flag of that country under international law. For the holy dhama, the abodes of the Lord, in any part of the universe, wherever He appears, they are in their own ways, flying the flag of the internal energy. They are not under the domain of the material energy, you see.


The three features of Godhead

the Bhagavatam explains, that there are the three features of Godhead

vadanti tat tattva-vidas

 tattvaṁ yaj jṣānam advayam

brahmeti paramātmeti

 bhagavān iti śabdyate

That is Brahman, Paramatma and Bhagavan, so the personalists, the devotees of the Lord, they understand the personality of Godhead, and automatically they also know the Paramatma feature and the Brahman feature or the impersonal feature. There is no difficulty for them to understand all the features, but for the impersonalist, they are not able to understand the Personality of Godhead. Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, He appeared in this uh, material world also, on His own free will. He is Krishna Himself, and He came into the material world for His own purpose, you see. The difference that when Krishna in His expansion or directly, as Lord Krsna or as Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, come into the material world, They are not coming like an ordinary living entity, who comes under the dictations of karma.

The drop of ecstasy

hā hā prabhu nityānanda premānanda-sukhī kṛpāvalokaṇa koro āmi baḍo duḥkhī. “Give me Your mercy now Lord Nityānanda. Lord Nityānanda You are premananda sukhi, You are completely the personification of transcendental happiness, ecstasy and love for Godhead. Just like Miniketana Rāmdāsa, He is the devotee we find in Caitanya-Caritāmṛta, we find that even though he touched somebody with his flute he started becoming ecstatic. The fisherman when Caitanya Mahaprabhu ran into the ocean and was floating, he picked up Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, just he touched Him. And then all the associates of Caitanya Mahaprabhu were looking up and down the beach looking, “Where is Lord Caitanya?” for miles, and then they saw this man completely afraid,

“Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/

Hare Rama Hare Rama

Rama Rama Hare Hare”

“What is the matter?” they asked

and he said, “I have been possessed, There is a ghost there,

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna”

So then Swarup Damodar he could see that, “Where is this ghost? It must be Lord Caitanya.”

“No, no, I have seen Lord Caitanya,

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna Hare Rama

I have seen Lord Caitanya. This is some terrible thing about 9 feet long, skin is all loose, bones are all hanging everything and is going chuga chug chuga chug, is making this terrible sound.” They know that Lord Caitanya in ecstasy, He stretches out, says, “Jagannātha Jagannātha” just comes out as a gargling sound. So then uh, Swarup Damodar said “I know how to cure these things.” Just whack, whack, whack, slapped him three times. “Alright, the ghost is gone.”

Just cause the guy was so hysterical you see, he was overwhelmed with love for Krishna but he was ignorant so he was all afraid. So when he slapped him three times, then said, “Now you are alright. He was still chanting and anyone possessed by a ghost, they don’t chant Hare Krishna like that.” So then… like this, so… Of course then they bathed Lord Caitanya, chanted Hare Krishna and He came back together. So like that Lord Nityananda when He would meet someone, easily give them ecstasy. Ha Ha premananda sukhi. So that is the point if we get that drop of ecstasy, if it fills our heart, when the heart is filled with a lake of Krishna prema, Krishna bhava, ecstatic love for Krishna, you see, then the room for… the room for material attachment is not there, the room for falling into illusion is not there.

The Lord Chaitanya – a channa avatara

There are many proofs to prove that Lord Caitanya is actually the Supreme Lord. Of course, the most famous that we quote is from the Bhagavatam:

kṛṣṇa-varṇaṁ tviṣākṛṣṇaṁ

sāṅgopāṅgāstra-pārṣadam

yajñaiḥ saṅkīrtana-prāyair

yajanti hi su-medhasaḥ

So, Prabhupada has given us several proofs, and actually Bhaktivinoda Thakura did a little research on this, so did Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura and they’ve have come up with about uh, 50 slokas from the different puranas, upanisads from the Mahabharata describing that in the Kali yuga the Lord comes as yellow color, the avatara in Kali-yuga is known as Mahaprabhu, saying uh, that uh, the Lord comes, distributes the Harinama in the Kali-yuga. He comes as a sannyasi, as a channa-avatara, there are so many slokas, I did not memorize all of them. Mahaprabhu, ei yuga… So there are many, many proofs in the uh, Vedas that all indicate that Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself is the fulfillment of the prediction that Krishna would come as a sannyasi, as a hidden avatara, as a person giving out the sankirtana movement. There is no one else who has done that, there is no one else who fulfilled those qualifications. And Lord Caitanya when He was here, He actually did everything that was predicted and He did things which were extraordinary. Even Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya, he accepted that Lord Caitanya was Krishna Himself.

Make the whole world Krishna conscious.

Lord Caitanya’s time there was Maharaja Prataparudra, there was the great king Krishna Devaraya in South India, there was also the Hussain Shah who gave the… a complete licence to Lord Caitanya to go anywhere in his Mohammedan kingdom and preach. So that means during those times Lord Caitanya had put certain great rulers who all were somehow fitting in His master plan to make the whole world Krishna conscious. And simultaneously so many things were going on around the world. I don’t know the other things going on otherwise there may be some more. But we can understand that now with this International Society for Krishna Consciousness is spreading all over the… it’s spread all over the world.

The closeout sale of the Supreme Personlity of Godhead

Lord Brahma, he went back to his, Satyaloka, his planet, the planet of Satya, and then, of course he came down and he appeared as Haridasa Thakura, and assisted Lord Caitanya in His transcendental pastimes. So, this opportunity to be in the pastime of Lord Caitanya was received even by great great demigods like Lord Brahma and others. It’s something very special, so we should also take it like that there is a special opportunity. Somehow or another, this is the, closeout sale of the Supreme Personlity of Godhead. I noticed when I came to America, that are a lot of close out sales, selling to the bare walls. So this is the closeout sale. If you miss it, at this time if you are left over, then it’s a very unfortunate situation. Then it’s practically that person… and that means that in the close out sale, if you go there like after the sale, and whatever is left you know it’s gonna be really bad stuff, right? It will be really junk because of… after the end, if nobody bought it, it must be, not be any good, because everybody cleaning…, trying to pick out anything good at the… at a cheap rate. Of course here it’s all cheating, they jack up the price and then say “half off.” Business you know. But this is not like that. That actually, this is a real bargain. This is the only real bargain, where actually thing are sold below cost, it’s given out free. But somehow or another, even after this, if a person somehow avoided the mercy of Lord Caitanya… was so clever to avoid the mercy of Lord Caitanya, well that person is the most unfortunate. He is the dregs, unfortunate. Most misfortunate… Unfortunate. So, we should be very careful, not to be any one of those, and to take the mercy of Lord Caitanya and try to give it out to everyone. Everyone that can accept it, given the opportunity,

“Chant Hare Krishna.”

Appreciate the mercy of lord Chaitanya

We should try to appreciate how great is the mercy Lord Caitanya’s given, and how unqualified anyone in this material world is, and especially someone born in the modern world where spiritual life is practically nil. And this specifically His dispensation, and if we take that humble attitude, almost immediately, you can experience drops of pure ecstasy which will flood out your existence in pure love for Krishna, or ecstatic devotion for Krishna.

This is all possible because one pure devotee Srila Prabhupada brought this message to the West, and he was able to, you see, give us that mercy and give that mercy to so many other devotees that now those devotees are also going on preaching.

Intense mood of Lord Chaitanya

Nimai, when He came in, then He came in that place, devotees were there chanting japa, and reading, and Lord Caitanya, He came, and He uh, He saw the devotees and He saw this pillar, and He… lets se… actually the mood of Lord Caitanya at this moment is something, you can’t actually express it in words. His mood is so intense that when He manifests His pure love for Krishna, it melts even stone. There is no, no one had experience of this intensity of love of Krishna. It was so intense.

One example is practical… in real life, several occasions, He actually melted stone by His love for Krishna. So, none of the devotees of course had ever had this experience, or they knew Nimai Pandita was the greatest scholar, or he was very prominent in the city, but they never had any association of Lord Caitanya as more than a type of devotee who was a little materialistic. A karmi, like, very learned, but in that level, you see. They’re all seeing Him… for the first time, He’s coming to them… in this new mood. They’ve never seen this before.

Just like, when Jagannatha was closed, Lord Caitanya in Puri became so anxious to see the Lord, that He couldn’t see Him, He ran 11 miles to Alalanatha, which was far away, I mean, 11 miles. He ran the whole way before this Visnu deity. Beautiful deity, slender waist, broad chest. Beautiful, beautiful deity. There’s special pastime with that deity, how little child was able to get the deity to personally uh, eat prasada. It’s a whole other story. So, then, when Lord Caitanya ran and paid obeisances to that deity, His body was so hot in separation from Krishna, He melted His form, right into the rock, and that rock is still at that Alalanatha temple. In fact, when the Gaur… Gambhira temple does the daily puja to that rock, they have offered that if you wanted to do the puja of that rock, they would give it to us. It’s in Puri. It’s near Puri, 11 miles away in a city called Alalanatha, Alalanatha. Seven feet: A full form of Lord Caitanya and His arm, His chest, everything. That, the separation that Lord Caitanya feels for Krishna is beyond… is beyond… it’s the full… it’s the separation that Radharani feels, which is enough to even stop Krishna, cold, you see.

That is the level of uh, separation that Lord Caitanya many… because He’s a combination of Krishna and Radha. We can’t understand. It’s beyond anything material.

The spiritual inspiration

In fact, in Lord Caitanya’s pastimes are many… even in different parts of the world, He sometimes appears. Sometimes visibly and sometimes invisibly, and the devotees feel spiritual inspiration by His presence, but then, Lord Caitanya… How He was discovered as actually Krishna, Himself by the devotees.

After they were huddling and doing kirtan, they knew that He was… He’s a great devotee, and He was inspiration at everyone, and they could see that His love and devotion was so intense that it far outstretched anyones, so then immediately… in all humility, they immediately were coming around Him and they were even though they were an older position, and He would treat them very respectfully, but they knew that He was the one who could actually lead the whole sankirtana movement, you see. But they didn’t exactly understand that He was Krishna. That idea, few had, that He must… He can’t be some oridinary person.
