“The devotee should make it a regular practice to spend a little time alone in a quiet place and concentrate deeply on the holy name. He should utter and hear the name distinctly. It is impossible for the jiva to singlehandedly avoid and overcome the illusion of distraction. By the mercy of the Lord, however, […]

“I offer my obeisances unto the shoes of those devotees who are expert in extricating those sunk in the rotten muck in the bottom of the ocean of material existence, and who become blissful by hearing the pair of syllables, ‘Krsna’, impelled to dance with all their hairs bristling.” [ A verse by an Utkala […]31 авг 2014

Шива – Кришне / Such Happiness

Я вернулся домой, в Шри Вриндавана-дхаму – и я счастлив, принимая прибежище святых имен:

«Служу Тебе и поклоняюсь, молитвы предлагаю и воспеваю имена – и неизбывно счастье.
Лишь только прекращаю – и счастья тоже нет»

[Господь Шива – Господу Кришне в “Брахма-вайварта-пуране” 1.6.14 ]

 

I have arrived back home in Sri Vrindavan Dhama and am happily taking shelter of the holy names: “My happiness is uninterrupted while serving You, worshiping You, offering prayers to You and chanting Your holy names. When these activities are finished, my happiness is also finished.”
[ Lord Siva to Lord Krsna in the Brahma-vivarta purana ]

“Inattention arising from laziness prevents a person from relishing the nectar of the holy names while chanting japa. He is slow to chant and remember the holy names. Even after trying, he soon finds the effort unendurable and wants to sleep or otherwise engage himself in frivolity. “Advanced devotees are cautious against such an offense. […]

 

“The heavenly planets are more celebrated than the earth. But the celebrity of earth has defeated that of the heavenly planets because of Dwarka where Lord Sri Krsna reigned as a king. Three places, mainly Vrindavan, Mathura and Dwarka, are more important than the famous planets within the universe. These places are perpetually sanctified because […]

Даже ребенок / Even a Сhild

 “There is no need of understanding the language of the mantra, nor is there any need of mental speculation, nor any intellectual adjustment for chanting this maha-mantra. It springs automatically from the spiritual platform, and as such, anyone can take part in this transcendental sound vibration without any previous qualification and dance in ecstasy. We have seen it practically. Even a child can take part in the chanting, or even a dog can take part in it”.

[ Srila Prabhupada ]

A Thousand Lifetimes / Тысячи жизней

“Only one who has worshipped the deity of the lord for at least a thousand lifetimes, and in each life having taken proper brahmanical initiation, is able to vibrate the holy name of Lord.” [Vaisnava Cintamani]

Непостижимо / Marvelous

“The extraordinary result derived from chanting the transcendentally empowered and eternal name of Krsna just a few times cannot be satisfactorily described, even by persons like Lord Siva or Lord Brahma. So marvelous is the holy name that immediately upon chanting, the chanter attains the supreme destination.” [Brhad Naradiya Purana]

 

Sweetest of All

“Sweeter than the sweetest; the greatest good amongst whatever is beneficial for the welfare of all; the most delicious fruit of the wish-fulfilling vine that is the Vedic literatures and their corollaries; the very form of inherent, spiritual cognition. O best of the Bhargavas! If a human being even once sings the name of Krsna…

Испробованье вкусов

«Святые имена Кришны – дарователи всех духовных благословений и неотличны от Кришны, воплощения всей трансцендентной сладости. Связанные с Кришной трансцендентные вкусы человек ощущает просто благодаря повторению Его святых имен.  Распробовать трансцендентную сладость Кришны никаким иным способом невозможно».

[ Шрила Бхактисиддханта Сарасвати Тхакур, Шри Чайтанья-бхагавата, Ади-кханда 16.21, комментарий ]

Relishing The Mellows
“The holy names of Krsna are the bestowers of all spiritual benedictions and are nondifferent from Krsna, the embodiment of all transcendental mellows. Simply by chanting the holy names of Krsna, one relishes the transcendental mellows related with Krsna. There is no possibility of relishing the transcendental mellows related with Krsna by any other process.”
[ Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Sri Caitanya-bhagavata, Adi-khanda 16.21, Commentary ]

Из “Падьявали”

«Когда богатства или знанья из мириадов всех вселенных и стали б собраны все вместе,
то и тогда им не сравниться с крупицей славы Кришна-намы.
Святое имя Кришны – и жизнь моя, и предназначенье жизни.
Оно – то средство, которым я достигну цели жизни».

[ Шрила Рупа Госвами, Падьявали 23]

Из “Падьявали”

“Пусть же святое имя Кришны, источник всего трансцендентного счастья,

разрушение грехов Кали-юги, самое очищающее из всего очищающего,

пища святого, направляющегося в духовный мир,

сад наслаждения, в котором резвятся голоса святых, философов и поэтов,

жизнь благочестивых и семя древа религии, –

пусть же оно принесёт трансцендентное благо всем вам”.

 

[ Шрила Рупа Госвами, «Падйавали», текст 19 ]
