Srila Bhakti Vaibhav Puri Maharaja
His Teaching and Precepts
It is said that a fool can be understood by what he speaks. Similarly, we can understand who is a pure devotee of the Lord by hearing their words.
Q: - When can a living entity live peacefully?
A: - A living entity cannot enjoy peace until he is free from the fruits of his past deeds. He is weak, inefficient and incomplete. So he can not attain
eternal peace until he surrenders himself to the lotus feet of the Lord.
Q: - This material world is treacherous soil, so under these circumstances what is the duty of a devotee?
A: - Though the material world makes a living entity enjoy different kinds of sorrows, a devotee is not affected by such sorrows. So a devotee should proceed in the path of devotion with enthusiasm and perseverance.
Q: - What is the duty of the human society? What is the result of following one's duty?
A: - The sole duty of the human society is the congregational chanting of the holy name of Lord Krishna. Sriman Mahaprabhu is the most munificent incarnation as He has guided us to take the shelter of Sri Krishna's name or He has provoked us to chant the name of Krishna incessantly. A living entity is empowered to relish the devotional mellows of Sri Krishna by chanting His name which is not attainable even by the demigods.
Q: - Everyone in this world is selfish. What is your opinion on this point?
A: - It is natural that the people of this material world are engaged themselves in their personal benefit. But we are eager to gain the devotion at the lotus feet of the Lord. We are fully selfish because the only object of our worship is to please Lord Krishna and we think we are the servitors of Krishna.
Q: - In which way should an intelligent person would utilize his selfishness?
A: - We have no any other desire except serving the Lord Krishna and our spiritual master. Thinking in this line one should utilise his intelligence for serving both the above persons.
Q: - Can a living entity do any beneficial work for himself?
A: - A living entity can not attain one's ultimate goal by reading hundreds of scriptures and engaging himself in singing, worshipping, etc. according to his personal will and pleasure.
Q: - Can a living entity become Brahma?
A: - It is not possible to get curd out of water. Similarly, a living entity can not become Brahma. The living entity has some similar qualities like the Supreme Lord and so he is endowed with the power to serve the Lord. As God is above all the living entities and demigods, it is not possible on the part of a living entity to occupy His position.
Q: - Everyone says that one should marry and have a son. What is the significance of this proverb?
A: - A son delivers his parents from the hell named 'Pun' and so he is called a son. A son who does not serve the Lord and engages himself in other deeds, according to scriptures he is an unwanted son. It is just like doing enviousness to the living entity by giving birth to such a son. The son who serves the Lord and the father who makes his son serve the Lord, such type of parental relation with the son is beneficial for their clan.
Q: - Can a person be benefited by denouncing or praising others character?
A: - It is never so. The benefit of the soul can not be attained by denouncing or praising others character. But it is better to discuss good qualities than discussing others faults. To control the mind is one type of yoga. The discussion over others character means discussion over the deeds of a person who is not in a position to serve the Lord. So it is not beneficial for the soul. But the word 'Para' means the Lord. So by discussing over the Lord's pastimes, names, etc. we can be benefited in a true sense.
Q: - What should we do at every moment?
A: - It is always required to discuss relating to our resort, then we can free ourselves from material entanglement. When a devotee gets devotion towards the Lord, he always discusses over the names and deeds of Hari and this helps him in attaining the summum bonum of life.
Q: - How many kinds of Vaishnavas are there and how would we identify them?
A: - There are three kinds of Vaishnavas like neophytes, middle order Vaishnavas and superior Vaishnavas i.e. who are engaged in the service of
the Lord after attaining perfection. A Vaishnava's position is considered according to his attachment for chanting the Lord's name. The neophytes
have interest to worship the Lord but they do not have the knowledge about Krishna, His devotees and His self-soul. They are like Vaishnavas.
The middle-order Vaishnavas have inward mentality and they serve the enlightened devotees attentively. The Superior Vaishnavas are impartial to
the living entities and they have no discrimination over the name and His person.
Q: - To which kind of reality Sri Jagannath, Sri Balarama and Sri Subhadra Devi belong?
A: - Sri Jagannath is the symbol of the Lord having the form of the Lord with eyes and hands. The meaning of this is that the Lord sees everything, knows everything and creates everything. Balarama is the potency of the Lord who has the capacity to create living entities. Mother Subhadra is the illusory potency of the Lord and Sudarsana represents His will power.
Q: - Why Brahma and Siva are called the demigods?
A: - Brahma and Siva belong to the differential potency of the Lord. So they are considered as demigods.
Q: - Which method is the better one to enter into the transcendental world?
A: - There is no other way except congregational chanting to enter into the transcendental world for the living entity.
Q: - How can one attain the highest qualification to enter into the spiritual life?
A: - The association with sadhus bestows a living entity to enter into the spiritual life.
Q: -What is the result of association with good persons and bad persons?
A: - A living entity attains love for Krishna by the association with Saints, but by the association with unholy people men become like beasts and can not discriminate between good and bad. The association with the unholy persons deviates one's mind from serving Lord and the real duty of a person.
Q: - It is said that one should give up imitation and should follow the path of good persons, what is the difference between the two?
A: - It is seen that people act like Narada in a drama. But it is quite different from following the devotional path shown by Narada. When one imitates others, he is devoid of benefiting himself but by following the devotional path of saints one attains devotion to the Lord.
Q: - What is the difference between muttering and chanting the Lord's name?
A: - Utterance of an incantation with a murmuring voice without the movement of the lips is called mutter. But when one chants with the movement of his lips is called kirtan. Kirtan is more beneficial than muttering. Utterance of the Lord's name, quality and pastimes with a loud voice is called chanting.
Q: - What is the first hand information about Krishna and what is the significance of Krishna's name?
A: - The first hand information about Krishna is His holy name. The name of Krishna has the attractive power and it is the most powerful reality in itself. One should chant Krishna's name for attaining Krishna Himself .
Q: - It has been told that five types of accomplishments are there to attain success in devotional path. Are they not self-sufficient?
A: - Leaving chanting of Lord's name, no accomplishment is complete in its nature. That means leaving chanting, dwelling in Mathura, and association with saints are imperfect. Chanting of the Lord's name gives us the fruit of dwelling in Mathura, association with saints, worship of deities and reading Bhagavata.
Q: - It is known that the chanting of the Lord's name is the means as well as the end. How far is it true?
A: - Lord's grace is the only way to attain accomplishment. Any other kind of deed or knowledge is not counted as the chief accomplishment. The name of the Lord and His person are non-different. So the attainment of one's objective is itself the attainment of the Lord as the Lord Himself is in the form of His name.
Q: - Why people treat the pastimes of Krishna as the deeds of an ordinary person?
A: - The character of Sri Krishna is clear and devoid of misconduct as seen in his meditation by Vyasadeva. The historical characters are entangled with material existences but the pastimes of Krishna are not considered so. The pastimes of Sri Krishna have no relationship with a country's time, place and person or it is not related with any kind of material happiness.
Q: - Many people think ill of Krishna as He has stolen the clothes of the Gopis. What is the significance of this pastime?
A: -Those who want to serve the Lord have nothing to conceal before the Lord. In order to teach this to his devotees the Lord enacted this pastime.
Q: - How Sri Radha and Krishna are related to each other?
A: - The persons who have accepted the doctrine of Sriman Mahaprabhu know that the conjugal love for Sri Krishna is the greatest serving attitude. The persons who are the followers of Srimati Radharani can taste this mellow. Sri Krishna is the truth in reality and Srimati Radharani is His eternal consort. Sri Radha and Krishna are one and the same and they glorify the mellows of Their service. They appear in two forms. They are like the two sides of the same coin.
Q: - What is the difference between Goloka and Gokula?
A: - There is no difference between Goloka and Gokula. The eternal abode of the Lord is called Goloka and when it comes down to this material world is called Gokula, as the mark of Sri Krishna's sporting place.
Q: - Is it possible to see the manifested Dhama with our material eyes?
A: - One should have transcendental eyes to see a Dhama in its real form. Those who receive transcendental vision by the grace of the Lord, are eligible to see the transcendental abode of the Lord.
Q: - Why is it required to take shelter under the lotus feet of Sriman Mahaprabhu?
A: - The propagator of the congregational chanting of Sri Krishna's name is Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He enlightens in their hearts and encourages them with Krishna Prema. They gain devotion for the Lord with the help of Sri Krishna sankirtan and taste the mellows of conjugal love. So it is the foremost duty of a living entity to take shelter under the lotus feet of Sri Chaitanya. Again one should take shelter of the staunch followers of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu like Sri Svarupa Damodara, Rupa Goswami etc. in order to get the grace of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
Q: -Why is it said that the incarnation of Gauranga Mahaprabhu is inconceivable?
A: - The significance of taking incarnation in this iron age is to preach kirtan and distribute Krishna Prema among the living entities Though this incarnation has its own significance, it is secret to the ordinary people.
Q: - What will one attain by remembering the pastimes of Gaura and Sri Krishna?
A: - There are two compartments in Vrindavan, which is above this material universe. There exist the servitors who are generous. But sweetness is the main character of this abode. In the place of Gauranga generosity is main but there also live the persons who have taken shelter of sweetness. At the time of accomplishment those who worship both Krishna and Gaura, attain at the time of perfection spiritual bodies and stay simultaneously in both the places.
Q: - Who are the disciples of this iron age?
A: - To worship Gauranga with the incantation of Krishna and worship Lord Krishna with the incantation of Gaura is the one and the same. Those who consider them to be different are called the disciples of this iron age.
Q: - Who worships Gauranga and who worships Sri Krishna?
A: - When a living entity is not free from material entanglement he worships Gaurasundara and when he is freed from material attachment, Sri Krishna becomes his worshipable Lord.
Q: - The religion of this Kali Yuga is congregational chanting of Lord's name. But why do you engage your devotees in constructing temples and buildings?
A: - Everyone has not of the qualification which is required to chant the sacred name of the Lord. So they are asked to construct buildings to create serving attitude towards the Lord. At the grace of the Lord one becomes the servitor of the Lord and the transcendental name of the Lord dances on his tongue.
Q: - How can we be freed from sense gratification?
A: - By the grace of the Spiritual Master when the transcendental name of the Lord purifies our ears we are freed from the sense gratification mentality.
Q: - When can a living entity be freed from material attachment?
A: - When we engage ourselves in chanting the name of Hari thinking ourselves to be Karmis, we attain religion, name and fulfilment of our desires. Then we do offence at the transcendental name. So we get only material benefit. When we chant the name of Hari having no ambition for salvation, we are freed from material entanglement.
Q: - What are the favourable situations for chanting the name of the Lord?
A: - At first we shall be freed from enviousness to the Vaishnavas because it causes misfortune in this material world as well as in the transcendental world. This material world is the testing place. We find here only sorrow. Tolerance, feeling insignificant and praising others are helpful for chanting the Lord's name.
Q: - How can we make this material body favorable towards devotion?
A: - One should not try to do any thing against the will of Lord Krishna. If one serves the Lord he feels comfort with his body, mind and soul. If one keeps oneself away from the service of the Lord it stands against him in doing service to the Lord.
Q: - Are the names uttered by us transcendental?
A: - It is not possible to utter the transcendental name of the Lord with His form, attributes and pastimes with the help of our natural eyes, ears and tongues. With the serving attitude of the senses the Omnipotent Lord manifests Himself before us.
Q: - What is the result of chanting offensive name?
A: - By chanting offensive name we shall be dragged towards hell. This stands against utterance of transcendental name.
Q: - How can we be freed from mental speculation?
A: - After hearing the scriptures one can be freed from mental speculation. After hearing the scriptures all kinds of mental speculations against the scriptures are removed.
Q: - When does one attain the wealth of transcendental name?
A: - The Lord and His devotees manifest in this material world for distributing the wealth of Vaikuntha. Vaishnavas are transcendental in nature. They know the temporal existence of this material world and that's why they inform us about the transcendental matter.
Q: - While chanting the Lord's name mundane thoughts come to our mind. So this chanting becomes valueless. Then how can we be freed from its clutches?
A: - It is not wise to leave chanting of the Lord's name, thinking that the material thoughts come to our mind while chanting the transcendental name. Gradually by accepting the transcendental name these unnecessary thoughts vanish and the transcendental name will arise as a Sun with its self-effulgence.
Q: - What is the system of serving the Lord?
A: - Sri Krishna Dasa Kaviraja Goswami has taught to worship one's Spiritual master at the beginning, then Sri Gauranga and at the end Gandharvika Giridhari.
Q: -To which thing one should be conscious while chanting the Lord'sname?
A: - If one chants the Lord's name Krishna in a clear heart, the senses don't go away from the Lord's transcendental form, attributes and pastimes. One should have keen interest for the unbreakable manifestation of the Lord's form, attributes and pastimes.
Q: - Why is the human form considered as the most valuable form?
A: - Human form is the most valuable form because it is attained as a result of the accumulation of good deeds in different births. This is attained by traveling through 80 Lakhs of births. It has been said in the 11th canto 2nd chapter and 29th verse of Srimad Bhagavatam that this temporary human form is very much valuable form which is attained after the accumulation of good deeds in different births. Due to ignorance animals and birds don't have the knowledge to serve the Lord. They don't have a sacrificing mentality. This human form is suitable for serving the Lord. So the human form is considered as the most valuable form.
Q: - Is there any remedy for death? How can one conquer it?
A: - Yes, one can overcome death. But atheists can not overcome death. They can never escape from the hands of death. Only the devotees of Krishna can overcome death, like Bhisma who accepted death by his own will. One can overcome death by taking shelter under the lotus feet of
the Lord Krishna. The Lord has told in Bhagavata in the 2nd canto 3rd chapter 17th verse that the sunrise and sunset destroys man's life span, if they are not utilised for discussing the Lord's pastimes. Those who spend their time in discussing Lord's pastimes, are not under the control of death. Lord Sri Krishna has also told to Arjuna in Srimad Bhagavata Gita 9th chapter 31st verse, "O Arjuna, O, the son of Kunti, I declare it properly that my devotee is never destroyed. I will protect him."
Q: - Then what should a person do at the time of death?
A: - When a person is at the doorstep of death he should take complete shelter of Krishna, His name, attributes, form and pastimes should be remembered. He should associate with saints and should hear and chant Hari. Once Khatvanga Maharaj had a life span of only a moment. Knowing this he took complete shelter under the lotus feet of the Lord and then he went to the transcendental abode of Lord Hari. It is said in Vishnu Smriti by the Lord, "O Sadasiva, O Mahadeva, I promise, My name 'Krishna' is very secret. What can I say more about it as it protects one from death." So always remember the name of Krishna.
Q: - What is called the doctrine of Bhagavata? Let me tell this by your grace.
A: -The Lord Shyamasundar has expressed the easiest method to attain Him. To offer Lord Sri Krishna all the deeds done either due to enforcement of one's nature or fate with mind, speech, sense organs, intelligence or heart is called the doctrine of Bhagavat.
Q: - What do people feel when Mahaprabhu manifested Himself in Navadvipa?
A: - When Mahaprabhu appeared in this world at Navadvipa, the fallen souls, fools, Muslims and illiterate people felt happy and the people of the world chanted the name of Hari and received Krishna Prema which is even unattainable by Brahma.
Q: - Can the remnants of Lord Jagannath be compared with the ordinary food?
A: - Not at all, the remnants of the Lord, the name of Krishna are transcendental in nature as are devotees of the Lord. So the transcendental objects are not related with the local time, place and person.
Q: - Do the pastimes of the Lord like killing of demons occur in the transcendental abode of the Lord which is above this world?
A: - Goloka is eternally transcendental abode of the Lord. There is no place for illusion. There, the servitors of the Lord enjoy the mellows of conjugal love by thinking themselves as the servitors of the Lord.
Q: - Are Brahma, the Super Soul and the Lord different reality and why Sri Krishna has more importance?
A: - Though they are same in nature, one realises the reality as per his accomplishment and one thinks that to be the most desirable thing. Krishna is the embodiment and one thinks that to be the transcendental form, the Super Soul and Brahma.
Q: - What quality should one possess to enter into the abode of the Lord and how can it be attained?
A: - In order to enter into the Lord's abode or to attain His name one has to acquire four attributes- 1) One should think himself to be as insignificant as a blade of grass, 2) He should be tolerant more than a tree, 3) He should give up the desire of name and fame, and 4) He should be compassionate towards the living entities. These four qualities are required to chant Hari Nama. There is no other way except the possession of these attributes.
Q: - Is the Lord is served by serving His deity?
A: - There is no difference between the service of the deity and the Lord. He manifests Himself in the worshipable form. We know that the writers of the scriptures declare that His name, form and God are non-different things. He who has no devotion, says the deity is an idol. One who knows the method of creating electricity with the help of a wire, can say that the wire itself is the current. But the person having no knowledge about it will say it is a wire. Similarly a material thing becomes transcendental.
Q: - What is the objective of a devotee?
A: - A devotee wants to give satisfaction to the Lord. He chants the holy name of the Lord with a serving attitude. He has no other ambition.
Q: -What quality should we possess to serve the Lord?
A: - The things that are favorable in the line of serving the Lord are tolerance, feeling insignificant and praising others. Unless one has tolerance, one can not have strong faith in the Lord. Tolerance is the ornament of a Vaishnava. One can not praise another person unless one feels oneself to be inferior. So these are the attributes helpful in the line of serving the Lord.
Q: - Why shall we call a Mahabhagavata to be the Universal spiritual master?
A: - A Mahabhagavata sees all the living entities as his spiritual master. This great attribute makes him great and gives him the fame of Universal spiritual master.
Q: - Maharaj! Everybody has emanated from the Lord. Then why should articles be offered to Him and what significance has it?
A: - This is a good question. The persons who like arguments think that the existence of God is not at all required. So they think it is not required to offer food to Him. They think that the things created by the Lord, when offered to Him, make one think the Lord's godly qualities to be transformed into mere human qualities. They argue against the requirement of prayer, meditation and eulogy for the benefit of our souls. All the work should be directed for pleasing the Lord and, there should not be any thought of personal benefit. The love for the Lord shows that the beautiful Lord sits before us and enjoys Himself as a father feels arranging food for his children. Similarly God has arranged food for us. For the pleasure of the father the children collected food and offered to their father as a mark of love to obtain blessings. The Father lovingly blesses them and returns them all the food articles and says, "O my dear children, these are for you. You offer me as a symbol of love for me. But I don't require anything. I accepted a little of your offering which is nothing but the unalloyed love and selfless affection." When we accept Mahaprasad we become happy.
Q: - Are the attainment of service of Lord Sri Krishna and realization of Him equally significant?
A: - A living entity is the servitor of Lord Krishna by nature. By chanting the transcendental name of Lord Krishna one attains eligibility to serve Lord Krishna, who is a Cupid. When one is interested with a particular type of service, His real form and realising His real form are equally important.
Q: - When is a living entity entitled to utter the transcendental name of the Lord?
A: - When one is mentally prepared to serve the Lord for His happiness, then the transcendental name would dance on his tongue automatically.
Q: - What is the duty of a man, whose birth is temporary?
A: - An intelligent person engages his energy fully in the service of the Lord without wasting a moment insignificantly because he knows very well that his life span is very short.
Q: - What should a devotee do being effected by grief?
A: - One should tolerate it knowing that it has been created by the grace of God. There is no other way to overcome it, other than waiting for the receipt of Lord's grace.
Q: - What is the aim of begging alms from door to door?
A: - This begging system is for the benefit of pure devotees, but the religious hypocrites misutilise this system to fulfil their belly.
Q: - What is the most beneficial activity for the living being?
A: - The preaching of the devotional path is the most ideal benevolence for the living entities, it keeps one away from sinful activities and drags them to the Lord.
Q: - Why does a living being disbelieve in the existence of the Lord?
A: - Atheists learn to argue irrelevantly due to their association with bad persons from their childhood and being effected by this, he does not believe God's existence. He harms himself and there is no loss to the God.
Q: - Though a living being is an eternal servitor of the Lord, why does he not believe in Him?
A: - Those who don't have transcendental eyes can't see the Lord, and so they think that God does not exist. As the blind can't see the light of the Sun, so also an atheist doesn't have belief in God.
Q: - Who can not be termed as a human being?
A: - What is the world? Who am I? Who has created this world? What is my duty? Those don't have ideas over these things can't be termed as human beings.

Q: - Which body favors the living being to serve the Lord?
A: - A living being cannot serve the lord until he has an astral body along with the material body. When one realises his own self by pure devotion, the serving attitude of the soul is aroused and he gets the right to relish the ecstatic bliss related to the service of Lord Krishna.
Q: - By what is a living being effected so he can’t know himself?
A: - The knowledge of a living being is captivated by the Lord's illusory potency. His outward knowledge is effected by that prime natures of a living being. So he can’t think himself to be devoid of prime natures.

Q: - Can a living being serve the Lord without the grace of his resort deity?
A: - It can’t be so. One's spiritual master is the resort deity and his disciples belong to the resort class of servitors or the dust particles of the resort deity. When one realises this he can serve the Lord. When one serves His spiritual master properly he attains the service or Lord by his grace. It is not possible to get the service of Lord through personal attempt.
Q: - Let me know the difference between knowledge and devotion?
A: - One can remove the forgetful attitude to the Lord by devotion. Knowledge roots out the virtue and vice arising out of one's pursuits. But devotion destroys the seed of pursuits causing virtue and vice and also destroys completely the main root of ignorance. Devotion destroys the sinful fruits of past deeds and present deeds.

PRECEPTOR'S PRECEPTS IN BRIEF
1. A living being attains devotion to the Lord as a result of congregational chanting of the Lord's name. He relishes the devotional mellow. So one should take shelter under the lotus feet of the Lord Sri Chaitanya Deva. It is concluded that one gets the grace of the Lord by loving the followers of Chaitanya Dev like Svarup and Rupa.
2. A living entity is an eternal servant of Lord Krishna. One realizes his own self by chanting the transcendental name of Lord Krishna which is a service of Lord Krishna, the Cupid.
3. Encouragement and perseverance are the two main qualities of a devotee. The material world can’t give displeasure to a true devotee.
4. One should chant the name of the Lord Krishna in a clear heart. One should be attentive not to allow the detachment of his senses from meditation on Lord's form, attributes and pastimes.
5. I am completely selfish because my object of worship is Krishna and I belong to Krishna. I have no love for any other thing unrelated to Krishna.
6. We have no aim other than serving the spiritual master as well as Lord Krishna. An intelligent person should guide his intelligence to acquire this.
7. The human society has one duty that is to chant congregationally the name of Lord Krishna. This is the most munificent quality of Sriman Mahaprabhu, because a living being attains Krishna Prema which is not attainable by the demigods.
