Bhakti TV Vaikhanas Maharaja at Holland April 2011

Bhakti TV Vaikhanas Maharaja at Holland.

Sripad BV Vaikhanas Maharaja was born in the USA in 1950. He is a disciple of Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the worldwide Hare Krsna movement. He first met his guru in 1971 in New York after having enrolled as a monk in the local Hare Krishna temple. Soon after he accepted initiation from Srila Prabhupada and served him in various capacities for many years.

In 1997, he met Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja and accepted him as his instructing spiritual master. In 2004, Srila Narayana Maharaja awarded him sannyasa in the holy city of Vrindavana, the place of Lord Krishna's birth. In 2003, he went to South India and opened a temple in Bangalore where he is still based. He also travels and teaches around the world, in China and other Asian countries, Europe, and the USA.

In this lecture, Vaikhanas Maharaja explains how to deepen one's connection with their guru, after he has departed from this world. We must study the example and teachings of the guru and try to align ourselves with, and fulfill the inner desire of our spiritual teachers.

I offer countless humble obeisances to my Gurudevatma, om vishnupad Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayan Maharaj, and to the Guru parampara and all Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis.

When I first use to listen to my Gurudeva speak, I could barely undestand him. His accent seemed very thick to me. As I became more familiar with his way of talking, I could then begin to understand, at least practically, what he is saying.

I remember when he used to say, "It remembers me"(instead of "It reminds me") I thought it was the most beautiful soothing balm any ears could relish!! I have transcribed this lecture which has been misrepresented. If you have any questions, write me! And Though his broken language is sweet, His intelligence defeats that of the greatest scholars. What I really like about this class, is that point about woman NOT being pap yonah, (having sinful birth and life). He is actually defending Srila Prabhupad by saying this. PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Srila SRILA PRABHUPADA'S WORDS HAVE BEN EDITED SO MUCH BY UNSCRUPULOUS MEN. I have seen with my own eyes and compaired older versions of Bhagavad Gita with newer versions and was infuriated.
This video does not begin at the beginning of his class, and it has a few black spots.

In this beautiful lecture given by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayan Maharajji, this verse
"mam hi partha vyapasritya ye 'pi syuh papa-yonayah
striyo vaisyas tatha sudras te 'pi yanti param gatim"

Word for Word:

mam--unto Me; hi--certainly; partha--O son of Prtha; vyapasritya--particularly taking shelter; ye--anyone; api--also; syuh--becomes; papa-yonayah--born of a lower family; striyah--women; vaisyah--mercantile people; tatha--also; sudrah--lower-class men; te api--even they; yanti--go; param--supreme; gatim--destination.

is nicely explained.

The editors of Srila Prabhupad's Bhagavad Gita AS IT IS made a mistake in printing the Verse 32 of chapter 9, translation.

They added a dash (-) where a comma should have been. So the verse with the mis-edit (or perhaps even a typo or misprint) looks like this:

O son of Prtha, those who take shelter in Me, though they be of lower birth--women, vaisyas [merchants], as well as sudras [workers]--can approach the supreme destination.

In actuallity the verse SHOULD look like this:

son of Prtha, those who take shelter in Me, though they be women, vaisyas [merchants], sudras [workers], as well as those of lower birth, can approach the supreme destination.

(note that English grammar is backwards )

A woman, A Vaisya (merchant class) and a Sudra (working class) Are not of sinful birth, paap yonah. Srila Prabhupad explains in his purport According to different modes of material nature, men are classified in he mode of goodness, (brahmanas), the mode of passion, (ksetriyas, or administrators), the mixed mode of passion and ignorance, (vaishas, or merchantile people) and the mode of ignorance (sudra or worker class) ........."THOSE LOWER THAN THEM ARE CALLED CHANDALAS, AND THEY ARE BORN IN SINFUL FAMILIES."

Who is of sinful birth?? this verse from Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 2 Ch. 4 text 18 explains who is PAAP YONAH, of low birth. "kirata-hunaandhra-pulinda-pulkasa
aabhir-sumbhaa yavanaah khasaadayah
ye 'nye ca paapaa yad-apaasrayaasrayaah
sudhyanti tasmai prabhavishnave"


Kirata, Huna, Andra, Pulinda, Pulkasa, Abhira, Sumbha, Yavana, members of Khasa races and even others addicted to sinful acts can be purified by taking shelter of the devotees of the Lord. due to His being the spreme power. I beg to offere my respectful obeisances unto Him."

Srila Prabhupad explains .."the above-mentioned historical names are different nations of the world."
He describes each one, then he says, "Even those who are constantly engaged in sinful acts are corrigible to the standard of perfect human beings, if they take shelter of the devotees of the Lord. Gurudev explains that those whose lives are full of sinful activities, who eat meat, drink whine, etc etc, are PAAP YONAH. I have transcribed the video so, so if you would like the transcription please tell me.

sincerely, an aspiring servant of the servants of Srila Gurudeva,

Tribute for Srila Gurudeva

Remembering Srila Gurudeva

"Sri Gurudeva expertly adopts the means devised by the sakhis for serving the Divine Couple in Their transcendental love-laden pastimes. For this reason he is extremely dear to Sri Radha Krsna. How will one receive the mercy of Sri Krsna if he is not receiving the mercy of a guru on this level?

Therefore, those who remain under the shelter of Sri Guru will experience the intense waves of separation from him when he is no longer manifest, and those waves will surely increase to their utmost magnitude."
