how their sailboat starts moving" 


My dear devotees, greetings from Sao Paulo, the land of Gandharvika Giridhari.

Today I share with you a topic called "The favorable winds to cross the ocean of repeated birth and death". So we must talk about the constitutional nature and needs of people, their needs for love and all that. This topic is a subject of devotional security. Of spiritual protection.

Nrisimhadeva Caturdasi: Sri Nrisimha-Avatara (Srila B.B. Tirtha Maharaj)

From Dasavatara – 
The Ten Manifestations of God 

The fourth among the Dasavatara is Sri Nrisimha-avatara. Among the innumerable avataras, twenty-five are pre-eminent as has been stated before in connection with Matsya-avatara. Of these twenty-five, Sri Nrisimhadeva is the fourteenth. He is the vaibhava-vilasa (expansion in magnificence) of the tadekatma form of Sri Krishna. 

Nrisimhadeva Caturdasi: Srila Sridhar Maharaj on Nrsimhadeva's connection to Navadvip

Srila Sridhar Maharaj on Sri Nrisimhadeva, from his veranda in Navadvip (the playgrounds of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu – Nimai). Three vibrations: that of Srila Sridhar Maharaj, that of Nrisimhadeva, and that of Navadvip. If you can't perceive all that he says, just listen to the sound and consider it music from a higher realm. 

Happy Nrisimhadeva Caturdasi!

Vision, not fiction (Srila B.B. Tirtha Maharaj)

One has to find the way to see transcendental truth. We are not to manufacture. If we manufacture by reasoning and argument then the outcome is not reality but fictitious.
