Sri Swamiji’s New Year 2020 Message

What Should We Seek from God If He Appears Before Us?

HH Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji has conducted Mass Prayers on January 1st of every year since 2007. Sri Swamiji refers to the New Year day as ‘Kalpatharu Day’ to signify the momentous occasion when Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, on Jan 1st, 1886, transformed into a ‘wish-fulfilling tree’ (Kalpatharu) for his ardent disciples and devotees.

Here we share the key messages of Sri Swamiji from his discourse that day.

Cherished Memoirs 79

Sri Swamiji’s Cherished Qualities (Part 5-1)

This series chronicles interesting experiences recounted by the devotees of HH Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji and divine experiences/words of Sri Swamiji.

Recently, a dear friend, while talking to Sri Swamiji, asked, “my close friend does not believe in temples and praying to God etc. He asked me if it was necessary to waste away so much of milk, yoghurt and other ingredients in the name of abhishekam and pooja in temples while so many people are starving….”. Sri Swamiji gave a long explanation for his question.

MADHURAGEETHAM: SRI KRISHNA LEELA – 14

Krishna and Vraja vasis enter the holy land of Sri Brindavan

The 10th canto in Srimad Bhagavatam is known as “Ashrayam” or “refuge” for Lord Krishna’s devotees for it talks about the Lord’s incarnation and his sweet lilas on this Earth. Sri Swamiji has written beautiful kirtans on these various lilas of Lord Krishna. So, in this series, we will relish those lilas of Lord Krishna through Sri Swamiji’s kirtans.

Brindavana is a land infused with the blemishless and unconditional love (aloukika prema), beyond the imagination and contemplation of this worldly plane, a part of the earth that carries the imprints of the Lotus Feet of Sri Krishna (Krishna charaNankitha bhoomi) and His Gopis who are prema-bhakti-personified and where Bhakthi Devi herself resides, plays and dances in ecstasy. Lord Krishna along with his vrajavasis move from Gokula to this holy land of Brindavan.
