“In the midst of the age of quarrel, devotees of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu hear songs glorifying the bonefide spirtual master. With much enthusiasm they sing the maha mantra of Lord Hari’s names. They adore their spiritual masters and all saintly devotees of the Lord.”
[ Srila Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya, Sri-Susloka-sloka-satakam, sloka 81 ]


“В самый разгар века раздоров бхакты Чайтаньи слушают песни во славу их гуру.

Полные счастья, поют маха-мантру имен Шри Хари.

Так почитают они своих гуру, а также иных – всех святых преданных Богу”.

[ Шрила Сарвабхаума Бхаттачарья, “Шри-сушлока-шатакам”, шлока 81 ]

Воспевание из самого сердца / Heart Deep Japa

“Джапа должна идти из глубин сердца, а не просто сходить с губ, как нечто механическое;
другими словами, наша цель – это воспевание из самого сердца”.


[ Шрила Бхактисиддханта Сарасвати Тхакур ]

“Japa must be heart deep and not only with the lips like something mechanical –

in other words, chanting with the heart is our goal.”

[ Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura ]

Клятва Рамачандры / The Vow


“Вот мой обет: лишь только кто-нибудь однажды всерьез предается Мне, говоря:

“Мой дорогой Господь, с этого дня я – Твой” и молит о бесстрашии,

Я в тот же миг дарю ему бесстрашье, и с этих самых пор он в безопасности”.

[ Lord Ramacandra, Ramayana, Yuddha-kanda 18.33 ]

” It is My vow that if one only once seriously surrenders unto Me saying, ‘My dear Lord, from this day I am Yours,’ and prays to Me for courage, I shall immediately award courage to that person, and he will always remain safe from that time on.” [ Lord Ramacandra, Ramayana, Yuddha-kanda 18.33 ]

“All rituals and fasts associated with Vedic sacrifice, all bathing in holy places around the world, all penances and fasts within this world, thousands of recitals of Vedic literature, and hundreds of circumambulations of the entire surface of the earth cannot match even a sixteenth portion of the merit acquired by chanting the holy name […] 5 июн 2015

“In this dark age of Kali-yuga, sincere devotees of the Supreme Lord should leave aside all other means for liberation and take full shelter of the Holy Names.

“O Lord of the demigods, please quickly remove this useless material existence I am undergoing. O Lord of the Yadus, please destroy this vast, shoreless ocean of sins.
