| Dear Blog Reader
Sweeping the courtyard of Radha Damodar Temple, Srila Prabhupada would cry loudly in the middle of the night, ‘He Rupa?! He Jiva!? He Santana!? Please give me your mercy!! My Guru has given me an impossible task, without your blessing I cannot fulfill it!’
Can you imagine how Srila Prabhupada must have felt returning to this same temple of Radha Damodar in Vrindavan a decade later, with nearly a hundred disciples from all over the world, to sit and hear discourse from him on Srila Rupa Goswami’s magnum opus, Bhakti Rasamrta Sindhu?! And during the month of Kartik no less!
If you are intrigued at all by this moving image, please join me in listening to this very same lecture series over the coming weeks as we approach the holy month of Kartik, mid-October. Follow this link in ISKCON Desire Tree and notice the first 15 lectures at the top and the last 8 at the bottom. As you listen try to hear not just what Srila Prabhupada is saying, but where he’s saying it and why. If you heard one a day beginning now you’d complete just before beginning your Kartik vows, which would have a new life in the wake of that transcendental sound.
