Srila Prabhupada’s Appearance Day

The Holy Appearance Day of

His Divine Grace 

Śrīla A.C. Bhaktivedānta Swami Prabhupāda Mahārāja

When Nanda Maharaja is observing a great festival for the appearance day of his beloved son, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, that very day Kṛṣṇa’s very dear devotee, very intimate devotee, His own man, has appeared.

What is the necessity of the Vaiṣṇavas coming here? Sādhu-vaiṣṇavas, Kṛṣṇa’s own men are always with Kṛṣṇa in that sat-cid-ānanda-maya-dhāma. Those who have attained Kṛṣṇa, only see kṛṣṇa-sambandha, the relationship with Kṛṣṇa. They see how everyone, everything, every object is related to Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is the only relationship. Kṛṣṇa nitya-sambandha — every jīva has a perfect, eternal, loving relationship with Kṛṣṇa. A completely Kṛṣṇa conscious person has this vision. For that premi-bhakta Kṛṣṇa is his most beloved and Kṛṣṇa is his object of love. Kṛṣṇa prāṇanātha — Kṛṣṇa is the Lord of his heart. The premi-bhakta, Vaiṣṇava sees that everything, every jīva is related to Kṛṣṇa in this loving relationship. Therefore how can he tolerate the suffering of Kṛṣṇa’s jīva? His heart bleeds seeing the jīvas who are suffering because of their forgetfulness of Kṛṣṇa and forgetfulness of their relationship with Him. They are bereft of Kṛṣṇa consciousness therefore they are suffering. This is the only cause. Sādhu Vaiṣṇava knows the cause very well. If they will develop Kṛṣṇa consciousness, that lost consciousness and become completely Kṛṣṇa conscious, then there will be no more suffering. They will go back home to Godhead.

    pamho agtACBSP, DIVINE APPEARANCE DAY OF HDG SRILA GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJ KI JAI,how can I forget to glorify a such exalted vaisnava from birth in the categories of rasa rasika bhakta of the lord today? I all the time dream over to get free as HDG SGGM was, even the astrologer predicted HIS glorious devotional life by renouncing HIS bhajan kutir to fulfil the order of HIS guru maharaj HE become even more glorious by keeping blessing us through HIS vani seva mercy,HDG ACBSP also told to all others senior devotees to not think that SRILA GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJ is one of us because HE born in a very famous vaisnava family of kirtaniyas and were full of bhakti since HIS childhood actually only SRILA GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJ could see and understand SRILA PRABHUPADA fully because both of THEM got similar guna and akarma qualities since birth,therefore in this very auspicious day we all pray to get full mercy of a genuine paramahamsa like HDG SGGM by keeping meditating on in vani seva sublime spiritual realizations until we get free from the bodily concept of life to taste our real blissful svarupa murti created by SRI KRSNA since time immemorial,HDG SGGM AVIRBHAVA MAHOTSAVA KI JAI ys haribol
