Sadhu Sanga Notes–HH Giriraj Swami’s Class “Śrīla Prabhupāda's Kirtan World Revolution”


Giriraj Swami

Memorial Day weekend there is a Prabhupada Festival in Los Angeles.

“I hope you can change your plans.” – Indradyumna Swami

Prabhupada's Sanskrit editor, Pradyumna Prabhu said a Striking statement.

Śrīla Prabhupāda took the same principles. That most acharyas take it for personal advancement to the advancement of the world.

Purport of this verse refers to Cetah Darpana marjanam.

It shows his inner mood.  Śrīla Prabhupāda is telling us what is going on inside him. He wants the leaders of the world to take it. So Revolutionary

Reforming the world.   

Tamal Krishna Goswami had a hernia operation. There was no phone.

America phone story with Śrīla Prabhupāda “Is this the time to inquire”

They decided to the hospital. Śrīla Prabhupāda was so concerned about Tamal Krishna Goswami.

When he was wheeled out, he said. “I just I had a dream. You were reporting to previous acharyas on your preaching mission, you said on Earth they have:

No good qualities.

No knowledge

No background

But one good quality

What ever I tell them they do.”

That is the what Śrīla Prabhupāda is saying in this purport.

Did not care even if they were not Indian.

Smartas say. Greatest disservice by giving sacred thread.

What is more powerful Paapa or Naaama. .?

Tree of Lord Caitanya

Rupa and Sanantan, the best of all.

They spread Krishna Consciousness in pascyamdesha.

How does Kaviraja Goswami describe such residents,no good behavior or well educated and etc

And trained them

When Śrīla Prabhupāda returned to India he went to a Sadhu Mela on the sands of Chowpatty

Long winded dry talks by impersonalist.

Śrīla Prabhupāda instead did kirtan

Malati then got everyone dancing.

"I don't wish to speak much" He said.

But these Americans. Sad achar

They had never seen white sadhus. Nor such enthusiasm.

One man said, "”I get people to chant Hare Krishna for health, can we join forces?”

“No! We serve Naama”

Our own worse enemy like the panic of a drowning man is his worse enemy
