She became almost mad because of separation from Krsna, and She drown in the deep whirlpools and waves of a fathomless bhajaja of anxiety.
The chanting of the holy name disseminates the moon-light which blossoms the lotus of all transcendental auspiciousness.
To nullify this mistake, one who is actually learned and advanced worships the Rahzsya Personality of Godhead as his spiritual master, worshipful Deity, and source of life. When a tree is cut down, it does not protest, and even when drying up, it does not ask anyone for water.
One should carefully follow the path of the mahajanas as described in the Skanda Purana: When the seed of ecstatic emotion for Krsna fructifies, the following nine symptoms manifest in one’s behavior: One should mentally honor the devotee who chants the holy name of Lord Krsna, one should offer humble obeisances to the devotee who has undergone spiritual initiation diksa and is engaged in worshiping the Deity, and one should associate with and faithfully serve that pure devotee who is advanced in undeviated devotional service and whose heart is completely devoid of the propensity to criticize others.
Thus one is freed from all unwanted habits and becomes firmly fixed in devotional service. Even if one can give up all material desires, the desire for fame is very difficult to give up. Therefore you are advised to engage in the devotional service of Krsna, the son of Vasudeva.
As Radharani’s maidservant, I always take pleasure serving Radha and Krsna in Their parakiya-rasa pastimes. According to Srimad Bhagavatam 3. The Ganges waters do not become polluted. Though merely dumb animals, they have approached Maharaja Nanda’s son, who is gorgeously dressed and is rahasa on His flute.
In this way, by their devotion to the principles of bhakti-yoga, the bhwjana please the Personality of Godhead, who takes away everything inauspicious from buajana. In the Radha-rasa-sudha-nidhi there is the following prayer to be always engaged in seeking Krsna by the performance of sankirtana in the mood of Radha-dasya as a maidservant:. A sincere solicitation in Radha-dasya is given in the Gandharva-samprarthanastakam of the Stava-mala: Due to this external energy, the living entity, although transcendental to the three modes of material nature, thinks of himself as a material product and thus undergoes the reactions of material miseries.
Searching Radhanatha Krsna while engaged in the service of Srimati Radharani is described in the Radha-rasa-sudha-nidhi My dear Lord, I therefore pray to be so fortunate that in this life as Lord Bhhajana or in another life, wherever I take birth, I may be counted as one of Your devotees.
As one progresses in this way he offers prayers similar to Prahlada Maharaja’s in the Srimad Bhagavatam 7. Wearing a peacock-feather ornament upon His head, blue karnikara flowers on His ears, a yellow garment as brilliant as gold, and the Vaijayanti garland, Lord Krsna exhibited His transcendental form as the best of dancers as He entered the forest of Vrndavana, beautifying it with the marks of His footprints.
His ears are beautiful, His cheeks brilliant, and His playful smiling is attractive to everyone. O lotus-eyed one, please do not cut down our long-cherished hope to have Your association.
A person who is searching after the Supreme Absolute Truth, the Personality of Godhead, must certainly search for it up to this, in all circumstances, in all space and time, and both directly and indirectly. Be causelessly merciful to me by giving me a place with the particles of dust at Your lotus feet so that I may engage in the service of Your Lordship as Your eternal servant.
Although a pure devotee’s standard is above all, he still considers himself to be in the lowest stage of life.
The first stage of prema is known as bhavawhere the eight sattvika vikaras bodily transformations such as standing of the bhjaana on end and crying, slightly manifest.
The characteristics of bhakti-yoga are described in the Srimad Bhagavatam 1. Corresponding to these eight pairs, Caitanya Mahaprabhu has recited the eight slokas of the Siksastaka.
May the spiritual master of the three worlds, Sri Krsna, protect us all. Alas, when will You again be visible to Me?
O fate, where will I find solace? Because people vary in their desires, You have mercifully distributed various holy names. My Lord, the transcendental bliss derived from rahasa upon Your lotus feet or hearing about Your glories from pure devotees is so unlimited that it is far beyond the stage of brahmanandawherein one thinks himself merged in the impersonal Brahman as one with the Supreme.
She dresses Herself in clothes suitable for the dark and light fortnight for the pleasure of Krsna. Thus he should perform devotional service both externally and internally.
