Они могут явить эту высшую обитель

 

«Как всем видны солнечные лучи в небе, так мудрым и обученным преданным всегда видна высшая обитель Господа Вишну. Поскольку эти досточтимые, духовно пробужденные брахманы способны видеть духовный мир, они способны и явить эту высшую обитель Господа Вишну».

[Риг Веда 1.22.20]

“Just as the sun’s rays in the sky are extended to the mundane vision, so in the same way the wise and learned devotees always see the supreme abode of Lord Vishnu. Because those highly praiseworthy and spiritually awake brahmanas are able to see the spiritual world, they are also able to reveal that supreme abode of Lord Vishnu.”

[Rig Veda 1.22.20]

om tad visnoh paramam padam sada
pashyanti surayo diviva chakshur-atatam
tad vipraso vipanyavo jagrivamsaha
samindhate vishnor yat paramam padam

[ Painting by Mahaveer Swami ]

О Кришна, Ты сама весна

«О Кришна, Ты сама весна, что заставляет лозу мадхвики (Радху) цвести от счастья.

Пусть же те, в чьих сердцах уже зародилась преданность Тебе, кто, отворив свой слух,

боготворят капли чистейшего великолепного океана нектара Твоих любовных игр во Врадже,

достигнут царства трансцендентной сладости и плавают в его волнах чистой любви».

[ Шрила Рупа Госвами, Видагдха-мадхава 7.62 ]

 

 

“O Krsna who are the springtime that makes the madhvika vine of Radha blossom with happiness. May those persons, in whose heart devotion for You has already sprouted and who open their ears to and worship drops of the pure and splendid nectar ocean of Your loving pastimes in Vraja, attain that kingdom of transcendental sweetness and swim in its waves of pure love.”

[ Srila Rupa Goswami, Vidagdha-madhava 7.62 ]

The Perfection of Chanting Hare Krsna / Совершенство воспевания Харе Кришна

“The purification of one’s chanting hari-nama means as soon as you chant the holy name of Krsna you will see the form of Krsna, realize the qualities of Krsna, remember the pastimes of Krsna. That is pure chanting of Hare Krsna mantra. That is stated in the commentary of Srila Jiva Goswami: that a pure devotee who chants Hare Krsna mantra immediately realizes the nama, rupa, guna, lila – everything about Krsna, simply by chanting the names. You will feel the form of Krsna. You will remember all His qualities. ‘Oh, Krsna is so qualified – He is so magnanimous.’ Then you will remember His lila pastimes: ‘Oh, Krsna instructed Arjuna. Krsna played with His cowherd boys. Krsna had very nice talks with the gopis, with His mother, Yasoda.’ These things you will remember. That is the actual perfection of chanting.”

[ Srila Prabhupada quoted in ‘Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita’ Volume 4, Every Town and Village – Around the World. 1968 – 1971 ]

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 ]
