Cleansing the mirror of the heart

LordChaitanya69

During Caitanya Maharapbhu’s 18 year stay in Jagannath Puri, the Lord would annually gather together hundreds of associates and together they would clean the Gundica Temple, in preparation for the Ratha Yatra and the arrival of Lord Jagannath. It was a wonderful jubilant affair that is described in detail in Caitanya-caritamrta Madhya 12.

But this cleaning was no ordinary cleaning. It carries a great symbolism for the gradual process of cleansing the heart of the conditioned living entity through the practice of Krsna consciousness. It is described that according to the cleanliness of the heart of the individual, he was able to clean with greater quality.

Lessons from the Life of Dhruva

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Story of Dhruva Maharaj, described in the Fourth Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, is profound and instructive in so many ways. A young prince, wounded by the ignominy of rejection from his father, enters the forest to find the Lord and demand a kingdom of his own. Instructed by the great sage Narada, his severe austerities not only gain him an audience with the Lord, but at the same time transform him. His mission was initially highly motivated but ended in him taking full shelter of the Lord without any desire for self-gratification.

This was one of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s favourite pastimes, one that he would delight in hearing repeatedly. Come and get the essence of this wonderful narration and learn some of the invaluable life lessons it has to offer.

The Life of Dhruva Maharaj

‘The Life of Dhruva Maharaj course’ due to take place at Bhaktivedanta Manor has been cancelled due to ‘unforeseen circumstances

The Bhagavatam is replete with pastimes of inspiring personalities, but maybe none is more stirring, more moving, than that of Dhruva Maharaj. Shunned from his father’s lap by his step-mother, the ksatriya prince leaves for the forest to beg the Lord for better circumstances. His determination is second to none, and his journey to pure devotional service gives hope to us all.

This pastime from the fourth canto is packed with lessons and insights into how we can propel ourselves in life, and especially in spiritual life. It will thrill and inspire no end… real life insights, funny stories, serious lessons, these sessions will have it all.
