Thank you so much Dhanesvara Prabhu for sharing this precious talk by His Grace Aindra Prabhu. The points made about the two aspects of sadhana bhakti, vaidhi and raganuga bhakti, are really essential. We should’nt be just satisfied by “getting the job done” we should
be greedy after developing “internal devotional service” (as Aindra Prabhu reminded us) and more spontaneous love for the Lord.
Of course we should be very cautious about any deviation from the general rules of vaidhi bhakti and keep ourselves away from sahajism tendencies but simultaneously we should be greedy for getting the “nectar for which we are always anxious” . This is Lord Chaitanya Mouvement and it is based on developping love of God. It is not enough to simply follow the rules (altough it is essential if we want to reach gradually to a higher platform of spontenous devotional service) we should be greedy after getting a taste of love of God or bhava (even if it is a very small drop for most of us).
Srila Prabhupada certainly “instituted vaidhi bhakti” but simultaneously expected from his disciples (and grand disciples) that they reached a more spontaneous platform regarding their relation with Krishna. When asked “what pleases you the most, Srila Prabhupada?” by one of his disciple, Srila Prabhupada answered “If you love Krishna”. This should be the goal - and nothing else - behind every field of activity in the Krishna consciousness Mouvement.

Very enlevening preaching ! I wish I could be younger and be a brahmacari engaged in this kind of extatic preaching, fully dedicated to serve Srila Prabhupada’s mission, under the care of such a pure devotee as His Holiness Mahavisnu Maharaja.
Thank you so much for this very enlevening video !
