Book Description

About the Book

In the Book Caitanya –mangala, by Srila Locan dasa Thakur, it is recoded 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 Klai. " With the powerful chopper of nama-sanskritana," 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 deliverthem. Mor senapati-bhakta refers to that commanding acarya who will be empowered by lord Caitanya to lead His sankitana movement. That acarya, whom Lord Caitanya referred to, is Srila prabhupada, who is destined to spread Krishna consciousness all over the world.

We all are every fortunate to receive this rarest gift –A human from of life. Even greater than this opportunity we have received in the from of devotion to krsna, the supreme personality of Godhead.

It is said that after hundreds and thousands of lifetimes, a living entity gets the hanuman body. The purpose of getting this human body is to perfect our lives by surrendering to the supreme Lord Krsna then our human form of life is wasted and we are forced to enter the lower species of life again. In a lecture on bhagavad-gita (1.36), Srila Prabhupada said, "So without becoming Vaisnava, without becoming a devotee of Krsna, You do not think that anyone is a human being. He is simply animal.

And how should we become a Vaishnava? We will become a Vaisnava when we will possess all the qualities of a devotee mentioned in the scriptures. However, it is not that a devotee must work separately to achieve each of these qualities. All good qualities automatically appear in a devotee; there is no need for them to endeavour separately.

In Srimad-bhagavad (6.1.15) Sukadeva Gosvami, the son of Vedavyasa speaks to Parikshit Maharaja:

Kecitkevalayabhjtya vasudeva-parayanah

Aghamdhunvantikarstsnyena niharamivabhaskarah

Only a rare person who has adopted complete, unalloyed devotional service to krsna can uproot the weeds of sinful actions with no possibility that they will receive. He Can do this simply by discharging devotional service, just as the sun can immediately dissipate fog by its rays.

Just by executing pure devotional service a devotee attains all good qualities. In this bhagavad-gita (13.8-12) ,Lord Krsna mentions twenty items of Knowledge. In the purport, srila Prabhpada explains unalloyed devotional service as the most important item : "if one takes to devotional a service in full Krsna Consciousness, the other nineteen times automatically develop within him.

"Qualities of a Devotee" is a series of compiled lectures of srila Gopala Krsna Gosvami Maharaja. In this Book, Maharaja explains that all the twenty –six qualities of a devotee are not independent of devotional service and we should strive o behave according to the principles of devotional service so that we may acquire all these qualities. He, by his own experience of over four decades of devotional service , explains the at to b e a devotee means many thing ,. There are many things a devotee must be accomplished in. All his qualities are sublime; no one can find any fault in him.

This book will prove to be an asset for all the devotee in addition to the ever – expanding Literary spiritual legacy produced by his Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and his dedicated followers. We hope that by reading this book and following the instructions given herein, the devotees would find it easier to develop these transcendental qualities and advance on the path of devotion.
