Poojyashree Shree Amma's
Please do keep in mind whatever I have said thus far (refer to past months issues ) and ensure that you have the thought that you belong to the RadheKrishna Satsangam family. Please ensure that you organize enough satsangams like what you had done in the past. It is because of this reason that the Lord had asked me to be present in this although I had no intention of visiting and participating.
May we all remember these messages and be blessed by Poojya Sri Sri Gurujiamma.

India is the holy land with so many bhaktas (devotees). When we go through the Indian history, there must be a bhakta in every period. That is the greatness of this sacred land. Bhaktas are the role model for all the bonded souls. They enjoy their life in a perfect way. Bhaktas surrender themselves to the Lotus feet of Lord. By hearing or reading bhaktas' divine story, the bonded soul is enlightened to come out of the worldwide bondages.
RadheKrishna! Sincere chanting and listening to the great stories of devotees will surely give a peace of mind to everybody, even in this 21st century. So many people think that listening to the devotee's stories is a waste of time and there is no benefit at all. If somebody wants to realize the power of bagawan, first of all they must listen bhaktha charithram [stories of devotees]. There are so many advantages in listening to baktha charithram.
Bharath is a very special land and contained within it are sacred places and rivers. Devotees born in this sacred Bharath ensure that they propagate bhakti in all corners of the country. This is the precise reason why the fragrance of bhakti can be felt all around our country.
Our beloved Guruji has a special reverence for Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and in the coming issues, we will enjoy his bhakthi and the path of devoution that he had set an example for us to follow.
In this Kaliyuga, to prove that one cannot attain liberation without the help of a guru, the Lord as Chaitanya mahaprabhu did accept Easwarapuri as his guru. We must produce so much devoution that the Lord will struggle to repay us for that devoution. Even Prahaladha was forced to scold Narasimha when the Lord offered anything in appreciation of his devoution. Devoution should be done for the sake of devoution and the Lord hung his head in shame. We must do so much devoution that the Lord will eventually get confused on how repay our devoution!
RadheKrishna.. Gauranga leela to continue in the coming episodes and we will find out what happened to the kashmiri pandit..

RadheKrishna.Hinduism is an ancient religion. All the things that have been spoken in Hindu religion can be applied in practical life. Although in 21st century till everyone can apply this in his or her daily life. The aim of Hindu religion is to provide total happiness to everyone at all times (or any point of time). The essence of Hinduism is told in "Bhagawad Gita". In order to realize what is said in Bhagawad Gita it is a compulsory (must) to have an unconditional faith on Bhagawad Gita. So many people have benefited in their lives because of the (by reading) shlokas of Bhagawad Gita. In Bhagawad Gita, Bhagawan Shri Krishna has told the way to lead a happy life in such an easy way that even a normal layman can easily understand. The slokas are so simple that anyone can understand and use it practically. In the coming months we will enjoy the 12th Chapter of Gita and the devoution towards the Lord as explained by our beloved Guruji.
Even the limitless sky can be packed into our minds and the mention of the word sea brings us imaginations of the depth, the breadth, the ships that are floating, the endless varieties of creatures like whales, crocodiles can be imagined by our mind. If the mind can map the sea in itself then you should imagine the greatness and the vastness of the mind. Hence in this world the biggest thing is our own minds and the mind is expecting a thing as big as itself. If an animal like a dog or a cat or an ant is there then the quantity of food it takes is proportional to the size of the animal. Hence we must feed the mind with a bigger entity than itself and it is none other than the Lord.
The Lord is the only one who can provide the necessary fulfillment to the mind. The Lord firmly tells Arjuna that he wishes to live with Him then He instructs Arjuna to give his mind to Him alone. There is a difference between giving our minds to everyone and to the Lord and giving our minds to the Lord alone. Then the Lord proceeds to instruct Arjuna to train his intellect to focus on Him. And this the Lord says will guarantee anyone to reside with Him and he concludes that there can never be a doubt about this fact.
The Lord is not imposing on how we should be to render the mind to Him. He does not say that one should be a Brahmin or a Vaysya to surrender one's mind. The Lord does not also indicate that the person should be an intellectual or a child or a male or a female but simply indicates everyone to surrender his/her mind to the Lord. The mercy of the Lord is the same to everyone and the Lord does not distinguish based on our attributes. The Lord has spoken to us through the questions of Arjuna and is applicable to all of us. Arjuna just asked whether it is legitimate to fight to which the Lord did answer in the front and at the end that it was right on the part of Arjuna to do so. The Lord just took this opportunity to explain to all of the creatures including the demi gods of this universe. The same is true and using Parikshit , sage Suka explained the Bagawada to everyone's benefit so that they can attain liberation. Just as an invention benefits not alone the inventor but everyone, it is true that the messages that the Lord spoke to Arjuna is applicable to us as well.

Perumal Thirumozhi was as a result of Kulasekara azhwar longing to see and enjoy Lord Ranganatha. The Thirumozhi also results from the bhakthi of the azhwar towards Rama and Krishna and he begins with his longing for Lord Ranganatha. Everyone of us have so much of longing for the worldly affairs but the longing and the love for the Lord alone will help us achieve a good state.
Kulasekara azhwar enjoys Lord Ranganatha as Adisheshan in the first two pasurams or songs. Then he enjoys the Lord as enjoyed by Brahma. But the way Gopis enjoyed the Lord is considered to be supreme. This is because the not so intelligent Gopis were fully aware of the strengths of the Lord and believed that Krishna would save them. Of all the avataras, Krishna avatar is considered to be the best and one that can easily be enjoyed. This was followed by Kulasekara azhwar enjoying how Narada and Tumburu enjoy the Lord. He continues further and sees how the devotees are enjoying the Lord and what items are safeguarding the Lord. Then the azhwar decides to mingle with the devotees and experience how it would be to be part of that group and enjoy the Lord.
Because of the grace showered by Thukaram the child got back his life. At another instance, King Shivaji without any weapons enters the bhajan group of Thukaram. Then some spies came to Chatrapathi Shivaji and said that Arunjazeeb was sending an army to capture him and this led Shivaji to sadness. Then Shivaji went up to Thukaram and said that he has to leave as otherwise it would be disturbing to the group of devotees who have gathered. To that Thukaram indicated that the king of kings Lord Pandurangan is present and so he can sit down and join the group back to continue his bhajans. Finally Shivaji yielded to his guru's word and began to sing Vittal Vittal
The army of Aurangazeeb surrounded the house and was awaiting Shivaji to come out. All of a sudden Shivaji came out , mounted his horse and started moving at a fast pace. The chase continued until the men of Aurangazeed finally gave up when they were stuck in the forest. At the end of the bhajan, Shivaji fell at the feet of Thukaram and the guru hugged the king and said that the Lord was so pleased with his devoution that He himself took the king's form and cheated the army. Hence we must associate ourselves with the devotees. We must sing and dance in devoution such that we can forget everything in this world.
Once Krishna Chaitnaya Mahaprabhu was doing bhajans and a child of house was so sick with fever that it was about to die any moment. The wife indicated to the father that the child might pass away and the father said that karma will take effect and he cant do anything about it. In the hall, Chaitanya and other were doing bhajans and inside the room, the child passed away. When the wife started to cry, the husband indicated that she should not disturb his guru who is singing bhajans in the hall

Bhagawan takes avatar in each and every yuga mainly to safeguard the bhaktas and then to destroy the rakshasaas who trouble his bhaktas. So Bhagawan comes to this bhoomi from paRamapadham just for the sake of his bhaktas. Hence we come to know that bhaktas are very important to the Lord. Whenever Bhagawan comes to rescue his bhaktas, the other fellow people also reap the benefits.........Our guruji amma gives high respect to all the bhaktas. Hence our Vedhanaadham's every issue will be dedicated to one bhakta. This issue we are dedicating to the one of the great eternal devotees of the Lord namely - 'Pundalika'
The greatsoul who was transformed by the saint Kukkuta and that changed his life for ever
The greatson who was so dedicated that he served his parents tirelessly after undergoing transformation
The great devotee who had asked the Lord to wait on a brick while he finished his services for his parents
The greatsaint who is credited with the formation of the Varkari sect that is dedicated towards the devoution of the Lord Panduranga
The greatdevotee who requested Krishna to remain in the brick with Rukmini in the form of Rakumai and bless the entire human race
The ultimate liberator bestowed by Lord Sri Krishna!
