A Newly Formed Spiritual Service Partnership
Since the departure of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaja in 2010 his disciples and followers have been feeling the pain of separation in his absence. As individuals and in groups of varying sizes we have tried to continue our service in separation in the hopes of experiencing Srila Gurudeva’s Divine presence in that service.
There are four main ways in which we can connect with and feel the presence of our Srila Gurudeva.
- Srila Gurudeva lives on in His words, His Hari Katha it is timeless and the most valuable thing we have.
- Service in association. Even when Srila Gurudeva was physically with us, the best way to connect with him was to serve. Seva is the essence of bhajan and it brings us closer and closer to Sri Guru. A little piece of Srila Gurudeva exists in the heart of every one of his followers, so by serving with them we grow closer to Srila Gurudeva.
- In His deity/Murti. Sometimes the material energy covers our eyes so we cannot see Sri Guru in our heart, therefore, out of His divine love, Sri Guru manifests physically both as the devotee we knew and as His Murti. Worshiping or even just having a Murti automatically inspires remembrance and creates a deeper loving connection.
- In our bhajan. The essence of spiritual practices is to always remember Krishna and never forget Him. But before approaching Krishna we must always remember Srila Gurudeva and never forget Him. Luckily out of divine love, Srila Gurudeva reaches out to us through His Hari Katha, His physical form and our God family making sure we always remember Him.
Today I would like to announce the creation of a newly formed spiritual service partnership, whose purpose is to bring the treasure of divine love, Srila Gurudeva deposited here, to all of his disciples and followers with the express purpose of igniting the spark of his divine presence in our hearts and lives. This partnership enables, inspires and imbibes the four ways to connect with Srila Gurudeva mentioned above.
The collection of videos and audios of Srila Gurudeva’s lectures in English and Hindi contained in His Archives is one of the greatest collections in size and quality in the history of Vaishnavism. Recently we have been blessed with the manifestation of Srila Gurudeva in a most life like image of His Divine Murti Form. A newly formed spiritual partnership between Srila Gurudeva’s Archive Team and Brajbazar.com (the creators and distributors of this Murti) is about to bring the greatest opportunities possible for disciples and followers of Srila Gurudeva, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaja, to engage in all four of the above activities in their service in separation.
This partnership between Srila Gurudeva’s Archives and Brajbazar.com is an ideal win/win practice of bhakti for everyone involved and everyone being served by the partnership. Srila Gurudeva’s Archives will get to have Brajbazar.com as the exclusive outlet for the Hari Katha Archive hard disk. A percentage of all profits from the sales you make on brajbazar.com will be used to continuously support and update Srila Gurudeva’s archives. Therefore by fulfilling all of your shopping needs for obtaining spiritual clothing, Kirtan instruments, and deity paraphernalia, that you need now and in the future from brajbazar.com, you will be contributing to the maintenance and development of Srila Gurudeva’s Video/Audio Archives, what a blessing that is for you and for the archives. Simply by doing something that you already have to do in terms of shopping for things you need to perform your service you will be helping to preserve Srila Gurudeva’s Hari Katha legacy in the world forever.
Please join us in celebrating this wonderful event by visiting purebhakti.tv the home of the archives and Brajabazar.com. In a day or two we will start making other announcements demonstrating how we plan to provide the devotees with unprecedented opportunities to serve Srila Gurudeva’s mission. Every devotee who has been privileged to hear about these new service opportunities has been very excited to participate. We here at Srila Gurudeva’s archives and Brajbazar.com want to thank all of you for giving us the opportunity to serve you by serving Srila Gurudeva the servant of Sri Sri Radha Govinda. I pray that this announcement meets one and all in the best of health and spiritual happiness.
