Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati was one of ten children born to Bhaktivinoda Thakura, a great Vaisnava teacher in the disciple-line from Lord Caitanya Himself. While living in a house named Narayana Chata, just near the temple of Lord Jagannatha in Puri, Bhaktivinoda Thakura was engaged as a prominent Deputy Magistrate and also served as the superintendent of the temple of Lord Jagannatha. Yet in spite of these responsibilities, he served the cause of Krsna with prodigious energy. While working to reform Gaudiya Vaisnavism in India, he prayed to Lord Caitanya, "Your teachings have been greatly depreciated and it is not in my power to restore them." Thus he prayed for a son to help him in his preaching mission. When, on February 6, 1874, Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati was born to Bhaktivinoda and Bhagavati Devi in Jagannatha Puri, the Vaisnavas considered him the answer to his father's prayers. He was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and draped across his chest like the sacred thread worn by brahmanas.

Six months after the child was born, Bhaktivinoda arranged for his son to undergo the annaprasana ceremony with the prasada of Vimala Devi, and thereafter named the boy Bimala prasada. Around the same time the carts of the Jagannatha festival stoppe d at the gate of Bhaktivinoda's residence and for three days could not be moved. Bhaktivinoda Thakura's wife brought the infant onto the cart and approached the Deity of Lord Jagannatha. Spontaneously, the infant extended his arms and touched the feet of Lord Jagannatha and was immediately blessed with a garland that fell from the body of the Lord. Seeing this the priests chanted the name of Hari and told the child's mother that the boy would certainly become a great devotee one day. When Bhaktivinoda Thakura learned that the Lord's garland had fallen on his son, he realized that this was the son for whom he had prayed.

Bimala Prasada stayed in Puri for ten months after his birth and then went to Bengal by palanquin on his mother's lap, his infancy was spent at Nadia District's Ranaghat hearing topics of Sri Hari from his mother.

Bhaktivinoda and his wife were orthodox and virtuous; they never allowed their children to eat anything other than prasada, nor to associate with bad company. One day, when Bimala Prasada was still a child of no more than four years, his father mildly rebuked him for eating a mango not yet duly offered to Lord Krsna. Bimala Prasada, although only a child, considered himself an offender to the Lord and vowed never to eat mangoes again. (This was a vow that he would follow throughout this life.) By the time Bimala Prasada was seven years old, he had memorized the entire Bhagavad gita and could even explain its verses. His father then began training him in proofreading and printing, in conjunction with the publishing of the Vaisnava magazine Sajjana-tosani.

In 1881, in the course of excavating for the construction of the Bhakti bhavana at Rambagan in Calcutta, a Deity of Kurmadeva was unearthed. After initiating his seven year old son, Bhaktivinoda entrusted Bimala with the service of the deity of Kurmadeva.

On April 1, 1884, Bhaktivinoda was appointed the senior Deputy Magistrate of Serampore, where he admitted Bimala in the Serampore High School. When Bimala was a mere student in class five, he invented a new method of writing named Bicanto. During this period he took lessons in mathematics and astrology from Pandita Mahesacandra Cudamoni. However, he preferred to read devotional books rather than the school texts.

In 1892, after passing his entrance examination, Bimala was admitted into the Sanskrit College of Calcutta. There he spent considerable time in the library studying various books on philosophy. He also studied the Vedas under the guidance of Prithvidhara Sarma. As a student he contributed many thoughtful articles to various religious journals. However he did not continue with his college studies for long.

In 1897 he started an autonomous Catuspathi (Sanskrit school) wherefrom monthly journals entitled "Jyotirvid", "Vrihaspati", and many old treatises on astrology were published. In 1898, while teaching at Sarasvata Catuspathi, he studied Siddhanta Kaumudi under Prthvidhara Sarma, at Bhaktibhavana. By the time he was twenty-five he had become well versed in Sanskrit, mathematics, and astronomy, and he had established himself as the author and publisher of many magazine articles and one book, Surya-siddhanta, for which he received the epithet Siddhanta Sarasvati in recognition of his erudition.

In 1895 Sarasvati Gosvami accepted service under the Tripura Royal Government as an editor for the biography entitled Rajaratnakara, the life histories of the royal line of the independent Tripura Kingdom. Later he was entrusted with the responsibility of educating the Yuvaraja Bahadur and Rajkumar Vrajendra Kisore, in Bengali and Sanskrit.

After a short period of time, Siddhanta Sarasvati took up the responsibilities for inspecting various ongoing activities in the royal palace for the state of Tripura. However, after finding enviousness, malice and corruption surfacing in ever corner of his inspection, Siddhanta Sarasvati very quickly developed an aversion to state affairs and gave notice of his intention to retire to Maharaja Radhakisore Manikya Bahadur. The Maharaja approved of Siddhanta Sarasvati's plans for renunciation and awarded him full-pay pension. However, after three years Siddhanta Sarasvati also renounced his pension. With his father, he visited many tirthas and heard discourses from the learned panditas. In October 1898 Siddhanta Sarasvati accompanied Bhaktivinoda on a pilgrimage of Kasi, Prayag, Gaya and other holy places. At Kasi a discussion was held with Ramamisra Sastri regarding the Ramanuja Sampradaya. After this talk Siddhanta Sarasvati's life seemed to take a turn, his inclination towards renunciation increased, and he quietly continued to search for a sadguru.

When Siddhanta Sarasvati was twenty-six his father, understanding the mind of his son, guided him to take initiation from a renounced Vaisnava saint, Gaurakisora dasa Babaji. Gaurakisora dasa Babaji was the embodiment of vairagya and was very selective about giving diksa. He lived beneath a tree near the bank of the Ganga and wore the abandoned clothes of dead bodies as a waist band (kaupina). Generally he ate plain rice soaked in Ganga water garnished with chili and salt. Sometimes he utilized discarded earthen pots, after properly washing them he would cook rice in them, offer it to Krsna, and then take prasada.

Following the advice of his father, Siddhanta Sarasvati went to Gaurakisora dasa and begged to be accepted as his disciple. Gaurakisora replied that he would not be able to give diksa unless he received the approval of Lord Caitanya. However, when Siddhanta Sarasvati returned again, Gaurakisora said that he had forgotten to ask Lord Caitanya. On the third visit, Gaurakisora stated that Lord Caitanya had said that erudition is extremely insignificant in comparison to devotion to the Supreme Lord.

Hearing this Siddhanta replied that since Gaurakisora was the servant of Kapatacudamani (the Supreme deceiver) hence he must be testing Sarasvati by with-holding his consent. However Siddhanta Sarasvati remained firmly determined and remarked that Ramanuja Acarya had been sent back eighteen times before he finally received the grace of Gosthipurna, thus he too would wait patiently until the day that Gaurakisora would bestow his benedictions upon him. Seeing the commitment of Sarasvati, Gaurakisora was impressed and gave him diksa in the blissful grove of Godruma and advised him, "to preach the Absolute Truth and keep aside all other works."

In March 1900 Sarasvati accompanied Bhaktivinoda on a pilgrimage of Balasore, Remuna, Bhuvanesvar, and Puri. As instructed by Bhaktivinoda, Sarasvati gave lectures from CC. with profound purports. Through the initiative of Bhaktivinoda Thakura the flow of pure bhakti again began to inundate the world. After Lord Caitanya's disappearance a period of darkness ensued in which the river of bhakti had been choked and practically dried up. The end of the period was brought about by the undaunted preaching of Bhaktivinoda Thakura. He wrote a number of books on suddha bhakti siddhanta and published numerous religious periodicals. He inspired many to take up the service of Lord Gauranga and instituted various Namahatta and Prapannasrama (Gaudiya matha centers).

In 1905 Siddhanta Sarasvati took a vow to chant the Hare Krsna mantra a billion times. Residing in Mayapur in a grass hut near the birthplace of Lord Caitanya, he chanted the mantra day and night. He cooked rice once a day in an earthen pot and ate nothing more; he slept on the ground, and when the rainwater leaked trough the grass ceiling, he sat beneath an umbrella, chanting.

In 1912 Manindra Nadi, the Maharaja of Cossimbazar, arranged to hold a large Vaisnava Sammilani at his palace. At the specific request of the Maharaja, Sarasvati Gosvami attended the Sammilani and delivered four very brief speeches on Suddha Bhakti on four consecutive days. However, he did not take any food during the Sammilani because of the presence of various groups of Sahajiyas. After fasting for four days Sarasvati Gosvami came to Mayapura and took the prasada of Lord Caitanya. Later when Maharaja Manindra Nandy realized what had happened he was deeply aggrieved and came to Mayapura to apologize to Siddhanta Sarasvati.

During that time Bengal was full of Sahajiya sects, such as Aul, Baul, Kartabhaja, Neda-nedi, Darvesa, Sain etc., who followed worldly practices in the name of spiritualism. Siddhanta Sarasvati launched a severe attack against those irreligious sects and did not spare anyone who deviated from the teachings of Lord Caitanya. Even some well known persons bearing the surname of Gosvamis patronized these Sahajiya sects during that period.

Siddhanta Sarasvati was deeply grieved to see these groups of Prakrita Sahajiyas, in the garb of Paramahamsa Gosvami Guru's, misleading the people. Thus he completely disassociated himself and resorted to performing bhajana in solitude. During this period of solitude, one day Lord Caitanya, along with the six Gosvamis, suddenly manifested before Siddhanta Sarasvati's vision and said: "Do not be disheartened, take up the task of re-establishing Varnasrama with new vigour and preach the message of love for Sri Krsna everywhere. After receiving this message, Sarasvati Gosvami was filled with inspiration to preach the glories of Lord Caitanya enthusiastically.

In 1911, while his aging father was lying ill, Siddhanta Sarasvati took up a challenge against pseudo Vaisnavas who claimed that birth in their caste was the prerequisite for preaching Krsna consciousness. The caste-conscious brahmana community had become incensed by Bhaktivinoda Thakura's presentation of many scriptural proofs that anyone, regardless of birth, could become a brahmana-Vaisnava. These smarta brahmanas, out to prove the inferiority of the Vaisnavas, arranged a discussion. On behalf of his indisposed father, young Siddhanta Sarasvati wrote an essay, "The Conclusive Difference Between the Brahmana and the Vaisnava," and submitted it before his father. Despite his poor health, Bhaktivinoda Thakura was elated to hear the arguments that would soundly defeat the challenge of the smartas.On the request of Madhusudana dasa Gosvami of Vrndavana and Visvambharananda deva Gosvami of Gopiballavpur, Siddhanta Sarasvati traveled to Midnapur, where panditas from all over India had gathered for a three-day discussion. Some of the smarta panditas who spoke first claimed that anyone born in a sudra family, even though initiated by a spiritual master, could never become purified and perform the brahminical duties of worshiping the deity or initiating disciples. Finally, Siddhanta Sarasvati delivered his speech. He began quoting Vedic references glorifying the brahmanas, and at this the smarta scholars became very much pleased. But when he began discussing the actual qualifications for becoming a brahmana, the qualities of the Vaisnavas, the relationship between the two, and who, according to the Vedic literature, is qualified to become a spiritual master and initiate disciples, then the joy of the Vaisnava-haters disappeared. Siddhanta Sarasvati conclusively proved from the scriptures that if one is born as a sudra but exhibits the qualities of a brahmana then he should be honored as a brahmana, despite his birth. And if one is born in a brahmana family but acts like a sudra, then he is not a brahmana. After his speech, Siddhanta Sarasvati was congratulated by the president of the conference, and thousands thronged around him. It was a victory for Vaisnavism.

Bhaktivinoda Thakura passed away in 1916(1914?) on the day of Gadadhara Pandita's disappearance. On the eve of his death Bhaktivinoda instructed his son to preach the teachings of the six Gosvamis and Lord Caitanya far and wide. He also requested that Siddhanta Sarasvati develop the birthsite of Lord Gauranga. Mother Bhagavati Devi died a few years later. Before her death, she held the hands of Sarasvati Gosvami imploring him to preach the glories of Lord Gauranga and His dhama. Accepting the instructions of his parents as his foremost duty, Sarasvati Gosvami took up this task of preaching with intense enthusiasm and vigour.

With the passing away of his father, and his spiritual master a year later, Siddhanta Sarasvati continued the mission of Lord Caitanya. He assumed editorship of Sajjana-tosani and established the Bhagwat Press in Krishnanagar. Then in 1918, in Mayapur, he sat down before a picture of Gaurakisora dasa Babaji and initiated himself into the sannyasa order. At this time he assumed the sannyasa title Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Maharaja.

Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati was dedicated to using the printing press as the best medium for large-scale distribution of Krsna consciousness. He thought of the printing press as a brhat mrdanga, a big mrdanga. The mrdanga drum played during kirtana could be heard for a block or two, whereas with the brhat mrdanga, the printing press, the message of Lord Caitanya could be spread all over the world.

Rohinikumar Ghosh, a nephew of Justice Candramadhava Ghosh of Calcutta High Court and originally a resident of Bhola in Barisal (now in Bangladesh), decided to renounce the world and engage himself in Haribhajana. With this purpose in mind he came to Kulia in Navadvipa where he led the life of a Baul. However, he despised the practices of the sevadasis prevalent amongst the Baul sect. One day Rohini Ghosh happen to come to the Yogapitha when Sarasvati Gosvami was lecturing there. Rohini was delighted to see the luminous appearance of Sarasvati Gosvami and fascinated by his words. Late that night, after spending the whole day listening to Sarasvati Gosvami's teachings, Rohini returned to his Baul Guru's asrama at Kulia. Without taking any prasada, Rohini took rest contemplating the lessons on Suddha Bhakti which he had heard that day. In his dream Rohini saw a Baul and his consort appear before him in the form of a tiger and tigress which were about to devour him. Trembling in fear Rohini desperately called out to Lord Caitanya. Suddenly Rohini found himself being rescued from the clutches of the tigers by Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. From that day Rohini left the Baul guru forever and took shelter at the feet of Sarasvati Gosvami.

Annadaprasad Datta, the elder brother of Sarasvati Gosvami, suffered with severe headaches shortly before his death. On the day of Annada's death Sarasvati Gosvami remained by his side all through the night, chanting Harinama. Before Annada passed a way he briefly regained consciousness and began apologizing to Sarasvati Gosvami, who simply encouraged him to remember the holy name of the Lord. Suddenly the tilak mark of the Ramanuja sampradaya became clearly visible on Annada's forehead. Annada explained that in his past birth he had been a Vaisnava belonging to the Ramanuja sect. But due to committing an offense at the feet of Sarasvati Thakura, Annada had to be reborn. However, as a result of his past merit he was fortunate enough to be born into Bhaktivinoda's family. After finishing his account Annada breathed his last.

Once on the day preceding Janmastami in the Bengali month of Bhadra, Sarasvati Gosvami was engaged in bhajana at Mayapura but was feeling disturbed as he was unable to arrange for milk to be offered to the deity. As soon as he began to think in this way he chastised himself: "Have I thought like this for my own sake? That is wrong." Because it was the monsoon season, Lord Caitanya's birth site was covered with water and was totally inaccessible except by boat. However, that afternoon, one milkman turned up there wading through water and slush carrying a large quantity of milk, ksira, butter, cottage-cheese etc. Apparently a zamindar named Harinarayana Cakravarti, guided by Lord Caitanya, had sent the milkman with all the items.

After offering everything to the deity the devotees partook of the prasada joyfully. Sarasvati Thakura was surprised to see so much prasada and the devotees explained what had happened. After taking prasada Siddhanta Sarasvati humbly appealed to the Lord: I am very sorry to have caused You so much trouble. Why did I have such an uncalled for thought? To fulfill my desire You have inspired another person and arranged to send these things."

The world was amazed to see the supernatural power of Sarasvati Gosvami. Many educated persons from highly respectable families were attracted to him and thus dedicated themselves to the service of Lord Gauranga. Between 1918 and 1937 Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati founded sixty-four Suddha Bhakti Mathas at the following places: Navadvipa, Mayapura, Calcutta, Chaka, Mymensingh, Naryanaganj, Chittagong, Midnapore, Remuna, Babasore, Puri, Alalanatha, Madras, Covoor, Delhi, Patna, Gaya, Lucknow, Varanasi, Hardwar, Allahabad, Mathura, Vrndavana, Assam, Kuruksetra, and outside India in London, and Rangoon. Sarasvati Gosvami instituted Gaurapadapitha at Nrsimhacala on the top of the Mandara hill, and at several places in South India. He initiated twenty five highly educated persons into Bhagavata Tridandi sannyasa.

He published the following periodicals on Suddha Bhakti in different languages:

1. Sajjanatosani (a fortnightly Bengali
2. The Harmonist (an English fortnightly)
3. Gaudiya (a Bengali weekly)
4. Bhagavata (a Hindi fortnightly)
5. Nadiya Prakasa (a Bengali daily)
6. Kirtana (an Assamese monthly)
7. Paramarthi (in Odiya)

In addition he published a large number of Vaisnava books. In fact, he heralded a new era in the spiritual world. He deputed well-disciplined Tridandi sannyasi's to preach the message of Lord Gauranga all over the world. For six years he continued to supervise this preaching work and when he found that his mission had attained its goal, to a reasonable extent, he decided to pass into the eternal service of Lord Gauranga.

A few days before his death Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati called his foremost disciples and showered his blessings upon all his devotees. He gave them the following instructions: " With the utmost enthusiasm preach the message of Rupa Raghunatha. Our ultimate goal is to become a speck of dust touching the lotus feet of the followers of Rupa Gosvami. All of you remain united in allegiance to the spiritual master (Asraya-vigraha) in order to satisfy the senses of the Transcendental Entity of Non-Dual Knowledge. Do not give up the worship of Hari even amidst hundreds of dangers, hundreds of insults or hundreds of persecutions. Do not become unenthusiastic upon seeing that the majority of people in this world are not accepting the message of Krsna's sincere worship. Never give up the glorification of the topics of Krsna, they are your own personal bhajana and your very all and all. Being humble like a blade of grass and tolerant like a tree, constantly glorify Hari.

In the early hours of the day on January 1, 1937 Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami passed away.


Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati fue uno de los diez hijos de Bhaktivinoda Thakura, un gran maestro Vaisnava en la línea de discípulo del Señor Caitanya mismo. Mientras que viven en una casa llamada Narayana Chata, sólo cerca del templo del Señor Jagannatha en Puri, Bhaktivinoda Thakura fue contratado como un prominente juez adjunto y también se desempeñó como Superintendente del templo del Señor Jagannatha. Sin embargo a pesar de estas responsabilidades, servido la causa de Krishna con energía prodigiosa. Mientras trabajaba para reforma Gaudiya Vaisnavism en la India, él oró al Señor Caitanya, "sus enseñanzas han se ha depreciado considerablemente y no está en mi poder restaurarlos". Así oró por un hijo ayudarlo en su misión de predicación. Cuando el 06 de febrero de 1874, Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati nació Bhaktivinoda y Bhagavati Devi en Jagannatha Puri, los Vaisnavas lo consideraban la respuesta a las oraciones de su padre. Nació con el cordón umbilical envuelto alrededor de su cuello y drapeado en el pecho como el hilo sagrado usado por brahmanas.

Seis meses después de que el niño nació, Bhaktivinoda dispuestas para que su hijo a someterse a la ceremonia de annaprasana con el prasada de Vimala Devi y después de eso había llamado el niño Bimala prasada. Al mismo tiempo no se podrían mover los carros de la Jagannatha festival stoppe d en la puerta de la residencia de Bhaktivinoda y durante tres días. Esposa de Bhaktivinoda trajo al niño en el carro y se acercó a la Deidad del Señor Jagannatha. Espontáneamente, el niño extendió sus brazos y tocó los pies del Señor Jagannatha e inmediatamente fue bendecido con una guirnalda que cayó desde el cuerpo del Señor. Viendo esto los sacerdotes corearon el nombre de Hari y dijo a la madre que el niño sin duda convertiría en un gran devoto un día. Cuando Bhaktivinoda Thakura se enteró que garland de Jehová había caído sobre su hijo, se dio cuenta de que esto era el hijo de quien había orado.

BIMALA Prasada permaneció en Puri diez meses después de su nacimiento y luego fue a Bengala por palanquín en el regazo de su madre, su infancia transcurrió en el Ranaghat audiencia temas de distrito de Nadia de Sri Hari de su madre.

Bhaktivinoda y su esposa eran ortodoxos y virtuoso; ellos nunca permitieron que sus hijos comen cualquier cosa que no sea de prasada, ni asociado con malas compañías. Un día, cuando Bimala Prasada era todavía un niño de no más de cuatro años, su padre lo reprendió suavemente para comer un mango no todo debidamente ofrecido al Señor Krsna. BIMALA Prasada, aunque sólo un niño, se consideraba un delincuente al Señor y juró nunca a comer mangos de nuevo. (Esto fue una promesa que él seguiría a lo largo de esta vida). Cuando que BIMALA Prasada tenía siete años de edad, había memorizado el Bhagavad gita todo y podría incluso explicar sus versos. Su padre entonces comenzó a entrenar en impresión, junto con la publicación de la Sajjana revista de Vaisnava-tosani y corrección de textos.

En 1881, en el curso de excavación para la construcción de la Bhakti bhavana en Rambagan en Calcuta, una deidad de Kurmadeva fue descubierto. Después de iniciar a su hijo de siete años, Bhaktivinoda había confiado Bimala al servicio de la Deidad de Kurmadeva.

El 01 de abril de 1884, Bhaktivinoda fue nombrado al magistrado vicepresidente senior de Serampore, donde admitió Bimala en la High School secundaria de Serampore. Cuando Bimala era un simple estudiante en clase cinco, inventó un nuevo método de escritura llamado Bicanto. Durante este período tomó lecciones de matemáticas y astrología de Pandita Mahesacandra Cudamoni. Sin embargo, prefería leer libros devocionales en lugar de los textos de la escuela.

En 1892, después de pasar su examen de ingreso, Bimala fue admitido en el Sanskrit College de Calcuta. Allí él pasó un tiempo considerable en la biblioteca estudiando varios libros sobre filosofía. También estudió los Vedas bajo la dirección de Prithvidhara Sarma. Como estudiante colaboró muchos artículos reflexivos para varias revistas religiosas. Sin embargo él no continuó con sus estudios de colegio por mucho tiempo.

En 1897 comenzó un Catuspathi autónomo (sánscrita escuela) donde revistas mensuales habían titulado "Jyotirvid", "Vrihaspati", y se publicaron muchos tratados antiguos de astrología. En 1898, clases en Sarasvata Catuspathi, estudió Siddhanta Kaumudi bajo Prthvidhara Sarma, en Bhaktibhavana. Cuando tenía veinticinco que había convertido en versado en sánscrito, las matemáticas y la astronomía, y que había establecido a sí mismo como el autor y editor de muchos artículos de revistas y un libro, Surya-siddhanta, por lo que recibió el epíteto Siddhanta Sarasvati en reconocimiento de su erudición.
En 1895 Sarasvati Gosvami aceptó el servicio bajo el gobierno del Reino de Tripura como redactor para la biografía titulada Rajaratnakara, las historias de vida de la línea real del Reino independiente de Tripura. Más tarde él se encomendó la responsabilidad de educar a los Yuvaraja Bahadur y Rajkumar Vrajendra Kisore, en bengalí y sánscrito.

Después de un corto período de tiempo, Siddhanta Sarasvati tomó las responsabilidades para la inspección de varias actividades en el Palacio Real para el estado de Tripura. Sin embargo, después de encontrar la envidia, la malicia y la corrupción emergiendo en esquina siempre de su inspección, Siddhanta Sarasvati rápidamente desarrolló una aversión a los asuntos de estado y dio aviso de su intención de retirarse al Maharajá Radhakisore Manikya Bahadur. El maharajá había aprobado planes de Siddhanta Sarasvati renuncia y le otorgó una pensión de pago completo. Sin embargo, después de tres años Siddhanta Sarasvati también renunció a su pensión. Con su padre, visitó muchos tirthas y había escuchado los discursos de los panditas docto. En octubre de 1898 Siddhanta Sarasvati había acompañado Bhaktivinoda en una peregrinación de Kasi, Prayag, Gaya y otros lugares sagrados. En Kasi se celebró un debate con Ramamisra Sastri sobre el Ramanuja Sampradaya. Después de esta charla parecía tomar un giro, su inclinación hacia la renuncia aumentada, vida de Siddhanta Sarasvati y continuó tranquilamente a buscar un sadguru.

Cuando Siddhanta Sarasvati fue veintiséis su padre, entender la mente de su hijo, lo guió para tomar la iniciación de un renunciante Santo Vaisnava, Gaurakisora dasa Babaji. Gaurakisora dasa Babaji fue la encarnación de vairagya y muy selectiva sobre dar diksa. Vivió bajo un árbol cerca de la orilla del Ganges y llevaba la ropa abandonada de cadáveres como una banda de cintura (kaupina). Generalmente comía arroz llano remojado en agua de Ganga con Chile y sal. A veces utilizó desechados ollas de barro, después de lavarlas correctamente cocinar el arroz en ellos, ofrecerla a Krishna y luego tomar prasada.

Siguiendo el Consejo de su padre, Siddhanta Sarasvati fue a Gaurakisora dasa y pidió ser aceptado como discípulo. Gaurakisora respondió que él no sería capaz de dar diksa a menos que recibió la aprobación del Señor Caitanya. Sin embargo, cuando se volvieron Siddhanta Sarasvati, Gaurakisora dijo que había olvidado pedirle Señor Caitanya. En la tercera visita, Gaurakisora declaró que el Señor Caitanya había dicho que la erudición es extremadamente insignificante en comparación con devoción al Señor Supremo.

Escuchar este Siddhanta respondió que desde que Gaurakisora era el siervo de Kapatacudamani (el Supremo engañador) por lo tanto él debe estar probando Sarasvati por con retención de su consentimiento. Sin embargo Siddhanta Sarasvati permanecía firmemente determinado y comentó que Ramanuja Acarya habían sido enviado de regreso dieciocho veces antes de finalmente recibió la gracia de Gosthipurna, así también le esperó pacientemente hasta el día que Gaurakisora le concede sus bendiciones sobre él. Ver el compromiso de Sarasvati, Gaurakisora quedó impresionado y le dio diksa en el grove gozosa de Godruma y le aconsejó, ""predicar la verdad absoluta y mantener a un lado todas las otras obras.

En marzo de 1900 Sarasvati había acompañado a Bhaktivinoda en una peregrinación de Balasore, Remuna, Bhuvanesvar y Puri. Según las instrucciones de Bhaktivinoda, Sarasvati dio conferencias de CC con profunda pretende. A través de la iniciativa de Bhaktivinoda Thakura el flujo del bhakti puro otra vez comenzó a inundar el mundo. Después de la desaparición del Señor Caitanya que un período de oscuridad sobrevino en que había sido estrangulado el río del bhakti y prácticamente desecado. Al final del período fue provocado por la predicación impávida de Bhaktivinoda Thakura. Escribió varios libros sobre suddha bhakti siddhanta y publicó numerosos periódicos religiosos. Él inspiró a muchos a tomar el servicio del Señor Gauranga e instituyó varios Namahatta y Prapannasrama (Gaudiya matha centros).

En 1905 Siddhanta Sarasvati tomó un voto para cantar el mantra Hare Krishna millones de veces. Él reside en Mayapur en una choza de hierba cerca del lugar de nacimiento del Señor Caitanya, corearon el mantra día y noche. Él arroz cocido una vez al día en una cazuela de barro y comía nada más; dormía en el suelo, y cuando el agua de lluvia filtrada a través el techo de hierba, se sentó debajo de un paraguas, cantando.

En 1912 Manindra Nadi, el maharajá de Cossimbazar, dispuesto a celebrar una gran Vaisnava Sammilani en su palacio. A petición expresa del Maharajá, Sarasvati Gosvami asistió a la Sammilani y pronunció cuatro discursos muy breves sobre Suddha Bhakti en cuatro días consecutivos. Sin embargo, él no tuvo ningún alimento durante el Sammilani debido a la presencia de varios grupos de Sahajiyas. Después de un ayuno de cuatro días Sarasvati Gosvami vino a Mayapura y tomó el prasada del Señor Caitanya. Más tarde, cuando Maharajá Manindra Nandy se dio cuenta de lo que había sucedido, él se siente profundamente ofendido y vino a Mayapura a pedir disculpas a Siddhanta Sarasvati.
Durante ese tiempo de que Bengala estaba lleno de Sahajiya sectas, como Aul, Baul, Kartabhaja, Neda-nedi, Darvesa, etc. de Sain, que siguieron las prácticas mundanas en el nombre de Espiritismo. Siddhanta Sarasvati lanzó un ataque severo contra las sectas irreligiosos y no perdonó a cualquiera que se desviaron de las enseñanzas del Señor Caitanya. Incluso algunas personas conocidas que lleva el apellido de Gosvamis frecuentados a estas sectas Sahajiya durante ese período.

Siddhanta Sarasvati estaba profundamente apesadumbrado para ver a estos grupos de Prakrita Sahajiyas, con el atuendo de Paramahamsa Gosvami del gurú, engañando a la gente. Así totalmente desasociado a sí mismo y recurrió a realizar bhajana en soledad. Durante este período de soledad, un día Señor Caitanya, junto con los seis Gosvamis, repentinamente se manifiesta ante la visión de Siddhanta Sarasvati y dijo: "no ser desalentado, toman la tarea de restablecer Varnasrama con nuevo vigor y predicar el mensaje de amor por Sri Krsna por todas partes. Después de recibir este mensaje, Sarasvati Gosvami se llenó de inspiración a predicar con entusiasmo las glorias del Señor Caitanya.

En 1911, mientras que su padre de crianza yacía enfermo, Siddhanta Sarasvati tomó un desafío contra pseudo Vaisnavas que afirmaban que el nacimiento en su casta era el requisito previo para predicar la conciencia de Krishna. La comunidad consciente de la casta brahmana había se enfureció por presentación de Bhaktivinoda de muchas pruebas de las escrituras que cualquiera, independientemente de nacimiento, podría convertirse en un brahmana-Vaisnava. Estos Smart brahmanas, hacia fuera probar la inferioridad de los Vaisnavas, arregló una discusión. En nombre de su padre indispuesto, joven Siddhanta Sarasvati escribió un ensayo, "La contundente diferencia entre el Brahmana y el Vaisnava," y presentó ante su padre. A pesar de su mala salud, Bhaktivinoda Thakura fue eufórico escuchar los argumentos que derrotarían a fondo el reto de los smartas.La solicitud de Madhusudana dasa Gosvami de Vrndavana y Visvambharananda deva Gosvami de Gopiballavpur, Siddhanta Sarasvati viajaron a Midnapur, panditas de toda la India donde se habían reunido para una discusión de tres días. Algunos de los panditas de Smart que habló primero afirmó que alguien nacido en una familia de sudra, incluso aunque fue iniciado por un maestro espiritual, nunca podría ser purificadas y ejercer las funciones de brahminical de adorar a la Deidad o iniciar a discípulos. Por último, Siddhanta Sarasvati pronunció su discurso. Comenzó citando referencias Védicas glorificar a los brahmanas, y en esto los expertos de Smart se convirtió en mucho placer. Pero cuando empezó a discutir los requisitos reales para convertirse en un brahmana, las cualidades de los Vaisnavas, la relación entre los dos, y que, según la literatura Védica, está calificado para convertirse en un maestro espiritual e iniciar a discípulos, entonces la alegría de las odian Vaisnava desapareció. Siddhanta Sarasvati resultó concluyente de las escrituras que si uno nace como un sudra, pero exhibe las cualidades de un brahmana entonces él debe ser honrado como un brahmana, a pesar de su nacimiento. Y si uno nace en una familia brahmana pero actúa como un sudra, entonces no es un brahmana. Después de su discurso, Siddhanta Sarasvati fue felicitado por el Presidente de la Conferencia y miles que se agolpaban a su alrededor. Fue una victoria para jovenes.

Bhaktivinoda Thakura falleció en 1916(1914?) en el día de la desaparición de Gadadhara Pandita. En la víspera de su muerte Bhaktivinoda instruyó a su hijo a predicar las enseñanzas de los seis Gosvamis y Señor Caitanya lo largo y ancho. También pidió que Siddhanta Sarasvati desarrollar el nacimiento del Señor Gauranga. Madre Bhagavati Devi murió unos años más tarde. Antes de su muerte, ocupó las manos de Sarasvati Gosvami implorándole a predicar las glorias del Señor Gauranga y su dhama. Aceptar las instrucciones de sus padres como su primer deber, Sarasvati Gosvami tomó esta tarea de la predicación con vigor y entusiasmo intenso.

Con el fallecimiento de su padre y su maestro espiritual, un año más tarde, Siddhanta Sarasvati continuó a la misión del Señor Caitanya. Asumió la dirección editorial del Sajjana-tosani y había establecida la prensa Bhagwat en Krishnanagar. Luego en 1918, en Mayapur, sentó ante un cuadro de Gaurakisora dasa Babaji y se inició en la orden sannyāsa. En este momento asumió el título de sannyāsa Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami maharajá.

Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati estuvo dedicado al uso de la imprenta como el mejor medio para la distribución a gran escala de la conciencia de Krishna. Pensó en la imprenta como un brhat mrdanga, un gran mrdanga. El tambor mrdanga jugado durante kirtana podía oírse por una cuadra o dos, mientras que con el brhat mrdanga, la imprenta, el mensaje del Señor Caitanya se podría extenderse por el mundo. 

Rohinikumar Ghosh, un sobrino de Justicia Candramadhava Ghosh del Tribunal superior de Calcuta y originalmente residente de Bhola en Barisal (ahora en Bangladesh), decidió renunciar al mundo y sí mismo participar en Haribhajana. Con este propósito en mente llegó a Kulia en Navadvipa, donde dirigió la vida de un Baul. Sin embargo, él desdeñó las prácticas de la sevadasis frecuente entre la secc Baul un día Rohini Ghosh sucede que llegará a la Yogapitha Sarasvati Gosvami fue conferencias allí. Rohini estaba encantado de ver el aspecto luminoso de Sarasvati Gosvami y fascinado por sus palabras. Tarde en la noche, después de pasar todo el día escuchando las enseñanzas de Sarasvati Gosvami, Rohini volvió a su gurú del Baul asrama en Kulia. Sin tomar cualquier prasada, Rohini tomó descanso contemplando las lecciones en Suddha Bhakti que había oído ese día. En su sueño Rohini vio un Baul y su consorte comparecer ante él en forma de un tigre y la tigresa que estaban a punto de devorarlo. Temblando de miedo Rohini desesperadamente llamó al Señor Caitanya. De repente Rohini se encontró siendo rescatados de las garras de los Tigres por Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. Desde ese día Rohini dejó el Baul gurú para siempre y llevó el abrigo a los pies de Sarasvati Gosvami.

Annadaprasad Datta, el hermano mayor de Sarasvati Gosvami, sufrió fuertes dolores de cabeza poco antes de su muerte. En el día de la muerte de Annada Sarasvati Gosvami permanecía a su lado durante toda la noche, cantar Harinama. Antes Annada forma brevemente recuperó la conciencia y comenzó a disculparse con Sarasvati Gosvami, que simplemente le animó a recordar el santo nombre del Señor. La marca de tilak del Ramanuja sampradaya volvieron claramente visible en el frente de Annada. Annada explicó que en su pasado nacimiento había sido un Vaisnava pertenecientes a la secta de Ramanuja. Pero debido a cometer un delito a los pies de Sarasvati Thakura, Annada debía renacer. Sin embargo, como resultado de su pasado mérito tuvo suerte de haber nacido en la familia de Bhaktivinoda. Después de terminar su cuenta Annada expiró.

Una vez que el día anterior Janmastami en bengalí mes de Bhadra, Sarasvati Gosvami participaba en bhajana en Mayapura pero perturbaba sensación como fue incapaz de organizar para que la leche que se ofrecerán a la Deidad. ¿Tan pronto como comenzó a pensar de esta manera él reprendió a sí mismo: "yo creí así por mi propio bien? Eso está mal". Porque es la temporada de monzones, sitio de nacimiento del Señor Caitanya estaba cubierta de agua y era totalmente inaccesible excepto por barco. Sin embargo, esa tarde, un lechero subido allí vadear a través de agua y aguanieve llevando una gran cantidad de ksira, mantequilla, leche, queso cottage-etc.. Al parecer un zamindar llamado Harinarayana Cakravarti, guiados por el Señor Caitanya, había enviado al lechero con todos los elementos.

Después de todo, ofreciendo a la Deidad los devotos comieron el prasada con alegría. Sarasvati Thakura se sorprendió al ver que tanta prasada y los devotos explicaron lo que había sucedido. Después de tomar prasada Siddhanta Sarasvati humildemente apeló al Señor: siento mucho han causado tantos problemas. ¿Por qué tuve un pensar? Para cumplir con mi deseo de haber inspirado a otra persona y dispuestos a enviar estas cosas".

El mundo quedó sorprendido al ver el poder sobrenatural de Sarasvati Gosvami. Muchas personas educadas de familias altamente respetables se siente atraídas por él y así se dedicaban al servicio del Señor Gauranga. Entre 1918 y 1937 Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati fundada sesenta y cuatro Suddha Bhakti Mathas en los lugares siguientes: Navadvipa, Mayapura, Calcuta, Chaka, Mymensingh, Naryanaganj, Chittagong, Midnapore, Remuna, Babasore, Puri, Alalanatha, Madras, Covoor, Delhi, Patna, Gaya, Lucknow, Varanasi, Hardwar, Allahabad, Mathura, Vrndavana, Assam, Kuruksetra y exterior India en Londres y Rangún. Sarasvati Gosvami instituyó Gaurapadapitha en Nrsimhacala en la cima de la colina de Mandara y en varios lugares en el sur de la India. Inició a veinticinco personas altamente educadas en Bhagavata Tridandi sannyāsa.

Publicó los siguientes periódicos en Suddha Bhakti en diferentes idiomas:

1. Sajjanatosani (un quincenal bengalí
2. El Harmonist (un inglés quincenal)
3. Gaudiya (semanalmente un bengalí)
4. Bhagavata (quincenalmente un Hindi)
5. Nadiya Prakasa (todos los días un bengalí)
6. Kirtana (un Assamese mensual)
7. Paramarthi (en Odiya)

Además publicó un gran número de libros Vaisnava. De hecho, él anunciaba una nueva era en el mundo espiritual. Él atribuidos bien disciplinado Tridandi sannyasi de predicar el mensaje del Señor Gauranga en todo el mundo. Durante seis años continuó supervisar este trabajo de predicación y cuando supo que su misión había logrado su objetivo, en una medida razonable, decidió pasar al servicio eterno del Señor Gauranga.

Unos días antes de su muerte Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati llamó a sus primeros discípulos y abundantemente sus bendiciones sobre todos sus devotos. Él les dio las siguientes instrucciones: "con la máxima ilusión predicar el mensaje de Rupa Raghunatha. Nuestra meta es convertirse en una mota de polvo que tocar los pies de loto de los seguidores de Rupa Gosvami. Todos ustedes mantenerse Unidos en alianza con el maestro espiritual (Asraya-Thevaara) con el fin de satisfacer los sentidos de la entidad trascendental del conocimiento no-dual. No te rindas culto de Hari incluso en medio de cientos de peligros, cientos de insultos o cientos de persecuciones. No seas tan entusiasmados al ver que la mayoría de la gente en este mundo no acepta el mensaje de la adoración sincera de Krsna. Nunca te rindas la glorificación de los temas de Krishna, son su propio personal bhajana y su muy todas y todos. Ser humilde como una hoja de hierba y tolerante como un árbol, constantemente glorificar a Hari.

Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami falleció en las primeras horas del día 01 de enero de 1937.

Bhakti Sutra. A work composed by Narada on the love and worship of God. The work contains eighty-four sutras; these aphorisms, some of which are famous, do not discuss worldly love, whether of one's neighbor or sexual love, but rather discuss the path of bhaki as the simplest path for the present age. Like the divine minne of medieval Christianity, love of God as demonstrated by Narada is the sole fulfillment of life and its chief goal. The individual sutras are extremely concise and in most editions are supplemented by the commentary of a spiritual teacher, since they are otherwise difficult to comprehend. (The Manurishi Foundation, Encyclopedic Dictionary of Hindu Terms).

La obra contiene 84 sutras; Estos aforismos, algunos de los cuales son famosos, no discutir amor terrenal, de la del vecino o el amor sexual, pero más bien discutir el camino de bhaki como el camino más simple para la presente era. Como la memoria divina del cristianismo medieval, el amor de Dios según lo demostrado por Narada es el único cumplimiento de vida y su objetivo principal. Los sutras individuales son extremadamente concisos y en la mayoría de ediciones se complementan con el comentario de un maestro espiritual, ya que de lo contrario son difíciles de comprender.

Narada: Bhakti Sutras

 1. Ahora, explicaremos la religión del  Amor Divino.
2. Esa, verdaderamente,es la naturaleza del Supremo Amor de Dios.
3. Y en su intrínseca naturaleza, el Amor Divino no es nada más que la bienaventuranza inmortal  de la liberación (mukti) misma, la cual llega sin ser llamada por la gracia de Dios y el propio sacrificio.
4. Obteniendo eso, el ser humano realiza su perfección y divinidad, quedándose profundamente satisfecho.
5. Obteniendo eso, el ser humano no desea nada más; está libre del dolor y el odio; no se alegra por nada; no se esfuerza en trabajar por interés propio.
6. Realizando eso, el ser humano queda embriagado y fascinado, porque está completamente inmerso en el gozo de la Bienaventuranza del Atman, el verdadero y altísimo Ser.
7. El Bhakti (devoción, descrita como Paraprema o Amor Supremo) no es de la misma naturaleza que la lujuria, ya que es una forma de renunciación. (Leer más)

Bhakti Sutras of Narada

by Swami Sivananda
1. The Nature of Divine Love
Salutation to Para Brahman and Rishi Narada!

Now, we will explain Bhakti.

Notes and Commentary

Atha means now. It is something used in the sense of sequence. It is a word that is used when a subject is begun, to invoke the Divine blessing. Sutra means an aphorism or terse saying impregnated with deep significance. Just as flowers and pearls are arranged or studded on a thread, so also philosophical ideas are studded or spread or arranged in the aphorism. Rishis always have expressed their ideas in the form of laconic Sutras. That is the beauty in the writings of Rishis or seers. That is the sign of God-realisation. The six Darsanas or schools of philosophy are embodied in the form of Sutras only. Without a commentary it is difficult for laymen to understand these Sutras.
Bhakti is defined in the following Sutra. Those who have understood the magnitude of human sufferings in this sense-universe and those who have realised that this world is unreal, impermanent, illusory, perishable, full of troubles, difficulties, miseries, pain, sorrow and tribulation and those who desire to free themselves from the round of births and deaths with its concomitant evils of old age, diseases, etc. , should know what Bhakti is, how to develop Bhakti, who is God or Lord or Isvara, the relationship between God and man and the methods to realise God, or to approach Him or to attain God-Consciousness.

Narada Bhakti Sutra -1 


Rishi Narada

Namaste Brothers and Sisters!

By blessings of H. H. Shri Sadgurudeva, by the blessings, guidance of Shri. Kalki Sharma Guruji, who is just like Sadgurudeva for me, by blessings of H. H. Swami Mrigendra Saraswati who has blessed me and this blog by following and by blessings of all of you, from today, starting to a new series on Gurukripa. This is the detailed Vyakhya, the meaning and elaboration of Narada Bhakti Sutra. I am not a Gyani or a Great Devotee. To write on Narada Bhakti Sutra, I must have the devotion like Devarshi Narada, but I am such an ordinary person, if I think to do something for the devotion of Lord Krishna, I stop without even thinking further.

Lord ShriKrishna is the complete love and I am nothing. What can I really do to express some devotion for HIM? Still I am writing on Narada Bhakti Sutra,
then this must be Gurukripa.

I will write on eighty six Bhakti Sutra, is it possible? I didnt have a thought of doubt for a single moment,
then this must be Gurukripa.

I pray to H. H. Shri. Sadgurudeva for the complete expression of supreme love towards Lord ShriKrishna by the Narada Bhakti Sutra. I cant write without your blessings.

I am referring the Narada Bhakti Sutra translated by the Sadguru of Mahayoga, H. H. Shri. ShripadMama Deshpande, the translation is in Marathi. Narada Bhakti Sutra are in Sanskrit. My thoughts on every sutra will be based on this Marathi Traslation, mentioned above. I pray to H. H. Shri. ShripadMama Deshpandeji for the blessings and success in this impossible mission for an ordinary person like me. This mission will be the easiest by the blessings of All the Sadgurus. The book I am refering is published by Shripad Seva Mandal, Pune, by H. H. Shri Shirishdada Kavde Maharaj.

There are eighty six Bhakti Sutra. Sutra means in simple words Formula. These spiritual Sutra are expressing the supreme knowledge of the Gyana, Bhakti in short lines of Sanskrit. These are not like Shlokas which have definite verses and poetic forms. The meaning of Sutra like Narada Bhakti Sutra, Patanjali Yoga Sutra, Brahma Sutra are very very deep and we can explain in maximum possible words or lines, still the complete meaning will not be expressed.

We will go deep in Narada Bhakti Sutra, as usual by just expressing some simple thoughts.

If you find any mistake in my writing, meaning understanding please guide me, that is all my ego’- ‘Ahankara which is expressed in the form of mistakes, otherwise Gurukripa is always perfect.

1.      Sutra : Athato Bhakti Vyakhyasyamaha

अथातो भक्तिं व्याख्यास्याम : |

Jai Vitthala,

Sage Naradaji Says,

Meaning: So......now I am explaining the Bhakti the supreme devotion towards Parameshwar.

Expressions from Heart on this Sutra :

Here I wonder, at the very begining of the Sutra, Naradaji says, So....’, ‘Therefore’...Why? Naradaji starts with So......’ ?

Whom must he be telling these Bhakti Sutra.

There must be some Jigyasu who must be desperate for the Moksha, and must be curious to know, how to realize the Moksha or more specific a person desperate for Moksha at the begining of spiritual journey thinks how to reachthe state of Moksha? When the Mumukshu realizes Moksha, he/ she realize that there was no begining, no end, no journey I am always Mukta.

In the path Bhakti, nobody says, I wish to reach Moksha. The true devotee thinks that I wish to know that Bhakti by which I will be always mad in love of the Parmeshwar, Lord Shrikrishna. Bhakti is not limited to one specific form of the Parmeshwar. Anybody can love and call the Mother of all Maa Shakti, Mother Goddess, just like Bhagwan Ramakrishna Paramahans used to call always Maa Kali, as Kali Kali. He lived in that supreme love for the mother, the mother of all, Maa Kali. Many devotees love Lord Krishna. All this we will see while realizing further Sutra. This series is the realization for me, even I didnt know the depth of the Sutra and just writing what the heart is willing to express. So this is not based on the theorotical study. Love or Bhakti is not the subject to study but the  eternal feeling to live with,  to live within from the heart.

So....coming back to the point, why there must be the word So....’?
Naradaji might have explained the importance of Gyana, Bhakti and Karma and due to some reason he is explaining the Bhakti which later has become the series of Narada Bhakti Sutra.

What must be the reason?  Is the reason explained in further Bhakti Sutra? Is Naradaji explaining only Bhakti from the begnining or after explaining Gyana and Karma or He is just explaining everything and Narada Bhakti Sutra are part of all His Preaching?

If the imporatance and reason of explaining Bhakti has been told earlier by Sage Naradaji, then why it is not in the Sutra from begining or it must be written or added in different scriptures?

So...the reasons may be many, but here my reason to explain all this is to share the process of reasoning. We cant get the satisfaction by just reading the meaning and remembering the Sutra. Curiosity and questions never stop and should never stop, this is the glory of Hinduism, the Bharateey culture and philosophy.

This may be a bit irrelevant, but many people ask and spread that Hindus dont have a single book to refer, so many books and so many Gods  - as per their understanding, is it right? Simple thing is yes, its the freedom given to everyone, freedom of reasoning may it be foolish sometimes, freedom of asking questions, freedom of seeking the truth and even freedom of rejecting what is being thought in Hinduism. The basic purpose of Indian culture and Indian spirituality is that a Human should realize the purpose of Human life and experience that he or she is not different from the Almighty. This makes a human free from all the bondages, the cycle of life and death and all the pains of life. Without allowing a person to grow as an individual or to ask questions or even to think, will not ever make anybody spiritual or free from the material bondages.

So the thinking and independent thinking, asking questions is most imporatant while living the life and even more impoartant while moving on the path spirituality.

So far, we have read so many things, scriptures, so many verses about Hinduism. But have we try to feel what writer, the Sage wish to convey us? From today, we will try to read not by eyes but by heart, by the eyes of the soul.

The questions further after reading the first Sutra are,

Can we really define the Bhakti?

Can we understand the Bhakti if someone defines?

Is Bhakti so simple or will be very difficult like the path of Gyana?

Here, Bhagwan Naradaji is telling the Sutra so He is our Guru in this new journey and when a Guru and supreme devotee of Lord Vishnu Naradaji is our Guru, we can easily understand, feel and realize the Bhakti. Our lives will be filled with the supreme love for the Parameshwar.

And, yes the importance of Mahayoga and Kundalini Awakening, will also be explained in the context of Bhakti.
