The Mood of Ratha-yatra

Question:
As we know, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krishna Himself but in the mood of Radharani. So, while attending Ratha-yatra and showing His ecstasy to the people is He in the mood of Radharani or in Krishna’s mood?

“It is His [Krishna's] will that universal welfare work depends on the protection of cows and brāhmaṇas; thus brahminical culture and cow protection are the basic principles for human civilization.”

If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it (Bhagavad-gītā 9.26).

Here the connection is being made between food and bhakti. There is another way of saying that: connection is being made between food and the Lord and the connection is bhakti. One could say, “Well, I have lots of bhakti, lots of devotion for the Lord, so much that I don’t even need to offer food. I just offer my love, I just offer my prayers. It says here, and Prabhupada says that Krishna eats through the sound so I don’t really need to offer something physical, I’ll just make a nice prayer and Krishna will hear that and through that He will eat.” But Krishna is more clever than that. He’ll know you are cheating.

Vyāsa-pūjā offering for Srila Prabhupada (2018)

srila-prabhupada

Dearest Srila Prabhupada,

On the occasion of celebrating your glorious appearance in this world, I offer my most humble obeisance and prayers at your lotus feet, with these words of reflection:

“Dialogical Vaisnavism”

You have delivered to the world a venerable and ancient tradition of devotional dialogue, what I like to call “dialogical Vaisnavism.” Most of our sacred literature is in the form of dialogue, saṁvāda: Sages speak with kings throughout the Bhāgavatam, and the Lord himself speaks with his dear friend Arjuna the dialogue that comes to be known as Bhagavad-gītā. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu speaks with Rāmānanda Rāya, and more recently, Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura fills his Vaiṣṇava narrative catechism, Jaiva Dharma, with dialogues. In the same tradition, you welcomed numerous guests into your quarters, engaging them in dialogue on spiritual topics.
