Description

About the Book

In the book Caitanya- mangala, by Srila Locan Dasa Thakur, it is recorded that Narada Muni, while visiting the spiritual world, came upon Lord Gauranga. The Lord told him of His mission to destroy the sinful activities of the Age of Kali. “With the powerful chopper of nama- sankirtana,” He said, “I’ll cut the hard knots of demoniac desires from the hearts of everyone. Even if the sinners reject religion or flee to foreign countries, still they will get My mercy. I will send mor senapati-bhakta to go there and deliver them.”

Mor senapati-bhakta refers to that commanding acarya who will be empowered by Lord Caitanya to lead His sankirtana movement. That acarya, whom Lord Caitanya referred to, is Srila Prabhupada, who is destined to spread Krishna consciousness all over the world.

About the Author

He was born in Delhi on Aug 14, 1944. He became an initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in 1969 and accepted the renounced order of life, Sannyas in 1982.

Currently he is GBC of ISKCON around the world. He successfully opened the Sri Sri Radha-Parthsarathi temple in New Delhi, amongst many throughout the world.

Following in the footsteps of his spiritual master, He is spreading Krishna Consciousness all over the world by giving people, transcendental knowledge, and guidance resulting in solace, happiness and love of God.

Introduction

From time immemorial or from the beginning of the creation the living entity is searching for happiness in this mortal world. Happiness is the birthright of the living entity. The scriptures tell us that the nature of soul is anandamayo bhyasat. Means, he is naturally full of bliss but misidentifying himself to this temporary body which subjects him to an endless cycle of changing bodies, with their aging, disease, and death.

We are trying to find happiness in this mortal world which is full of duality. In Bhagavad-gita the material world is described as being full of miseries.

abrahma-bhuvanal lokah punar avartino rjuna

mam upetya tu kaunteya punar janma na vidyate

“From the highest planet in the material world, down to the lowest, all are places of misery, where repeated birth and death take place. But one who attains to My abode, O son of Kunti, never takes birth again.” (BG 8.16)

Misunderstanding the source of real happiness the modern man is trying to get the pleasure from the dead matter by inventing many devices, luxurious facilities to pamper the body etc. but unable to get permanent happiness he leads life towards frustration. Srila Prabhupada says, “The ambition for happiness is natural and good, but the attempt to derive it from inert matter by so-called scientific arrangements is an illusory attempt doomed to frustration. Those who are befooled cannot understand this.”

In order to find this source, however, we need some knowledge of what that happiness is. To understand this Srila Prabhupada tells a story. There is a foolish man who had no experience with sugar cane. When he asked his friend about the characteristics of sugar cane, he was imperfectly informed that sugar cane resembles the shape of a bamboo stick. Consequently he began trying to extract juice from bamboo sticks, but naturally he was baffled in his attempts. This is the situation with the illusioned living entity who, in his search for eternal happiness, tries to extract happiness from this material world, which is not only full of miseries but is also transient and flickering.

Therefore, a wise man should be determined to find the real source of happiness. To understand this and how to access that source this small book is helping us 

This book is compiled from the lectures delivered in Montreal, Canada, by Srila Gopal Krsna Goswami Maharaj, who is a swanlike personality whose only aim in life is to serve the mission of Lord Caitanya by spreading his transcendental teachings around the world for the benefit of conditioned souls who suffers in this material world.

I would like to thank Anuttam Hari Das & Bhakta Sushant Pati for arranging the design and layout. I also thank Vrindavan Vinod Das for his cover designing. We pray to Srila Prabhupada, Sri Sri Nitai Gaur Sunder, and our worshipable deities Sri Sri Radha Parthasarathi to bless them all with pure devotion.

Finding ourselves unqualified to take up this task, I beg the blessings of all the vaisnavas.
