A Request from Sripad Aindra Prabhu
By William Mathew
14th July 2013, is the third Tirobhava Mahostsava (disappearance anniversary) of Sripad Anidra Prabhu’s departure to the spiritual world. On this day we would like to present this request made by Aindra Prabhu collected from this talks.
Aindra Prabhu: Please remember. I besiege you again and again; please remember – Worldwide ISKCON grass roots Nama sankirtan revolution.
Revolution means revolution. It means we have to shed pounds and gallons and gallons of blood to get the job done. We have to turn this movement inside out, upside down, whatever we have to do but we have to put Nama sankirtan back into its rightful place of dignity in the forefront of our movement. It is absolutely essential for the proper growth of our movement.
Those who have understood this are awake to the need of the hour and those who have not understood it are still sleeping. It is time to wake and understand what is the responsibility of every man, woman and child in this movement, to take seriously that dharma which Lord Chaitanya himself inaugurated for the deliverance of all fallen conditioned souls for the rest of this kali yuga. There is another 427,000 years left to Kali Yuga. The Yuga dharma doesn’t change. The next Yuga is Satya Yuga and for them contemplative peaceful meditation but in Kali Yuga you got to get fired up. Every one of you – fired up. Chanting and dancing from the heart like to really mean it, like you really want Lord Chaitanya’s mercy. So that you can even think, even hope to go back to godhead in this one lifetime.
It is not a joke, it is the real thing. To stand up and do what’s right. Do the real thing, perform Nama sankirtan daily, everyday, for as many hours as possible and you will get there. I guarantee it. Not that I have guaranteed it, Lord Chaitanya has guaranteed it.
The soul has to go back home, back to godhead and the way that is going to happen is if the soul agrees to engage all his psycophysical energies and his full heart into the performance of Sneha Samyukta Harinama sankirtan.
Sneha means with affection and Samyukta means complete engagement. Full on. Fired up and back home, back to godhead in this one life time.
“To make us wholly devoted to Krishna’s name, Sri Gaurangadeva, the combined form of Sri Radha-Govinda, came to this world. But if we disregard His teachings and show no interest in Sri-nama-seva, we will never attain auspiciousness.
Sri nama- sankirtan is the best sadhana. If other sadhanas help us in Krishna-sankirtana, then they deserve to be called sadhana; otherwise they are simply impediments to sadhana. Sri-krishna-nama-sankirtana is the emperor of sadhanas. It is the only infallible sadhana capable of bringing us to siddhi.
Sriman Mahaprabhu did not speak of teaching arcana, but in Siksastaka he taught nama-bhajana. Although in Kali-yuga other limbs of bhakti should be performed, they should be accompanied by bhakti denoted by kirtana.”
