Reflections on the lecture by Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj

Photos and poll by Vrindavanesvari Devi Dasi

Lord Narasingadev going to mangal arotik. Awesome. That’s how Bhaktivinode Thakur found Mayapur. He felt a breeze going by everyday, and he thought and prayed. He realized the wind was coming from Narasinga Pali and it was going to this area. It was the Lord going to mangal arotik.

–Kishori Devi Dasi
Normally on the appearance day of an Acharya, we sit to reflect upon their contributions to the sampradaya. In the case of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, his contribution to the sampradaya is the sampradaya. It’s everything. He gave the vision to spread Krishna Consciousness all over the world. He envisioned all of us, walking through the abode of Mahaprabhu, with our hands in the air chanting Hare Krishna.

–Shobana Krishna Das

Someone asked Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, ‘Can you tell me about Krishna Nam?’ And just that word – Krishna Nam – he starting repeating over and over. That was all he could say. So it was like, okay, that’s enough – Krishna Nam!

–Maladhari Devi Dasi
I liked the part when he was talking about how, as a boy, Bhaktisidhanta Saraswati Thakur took a vow never to come within a hundred feet of a sahajiya. There was one time when he was walking to school and he paid his dandavats to one man from a hundred feet away. The man, who was preaching sahajiya philosophy, asked, ‘Why is this boy acting so strange?’ That was funny.

–Kamal Krishna
