Q: Serving the Vrajavasis who felt great separation from Krishna when He left Vraja to reside in Mathura is our supreme constitutional occupation. (“Upadeshavali” of Śrīla Saraswatī Ṭhākur, Verse 9). Could Maharaja be so kind to explain further this verse or give some comments?
The greatest depth of the substantial Vaishnavas is revealed in non-confidential shlokas. — Rasic Richter scale: if Krishna treats Putana like His mother, then what to speak of other rasas. — Spiritual counterfeit iis deplorable. — The key to unlock the divine sentiment is separation. — Krishna-prem: venom and nectar. — Yuga-dharma — nama-sankirttana. — The primacy of Gaura-Nitai pastimes: approach Radha-Krishna through them. — Mahaprabhu’s tasting matter. — Material body and svarup, the soul’s enlightened position: exploitation and dedication. — Ramananda Ray tells about the supremacy of Srimati Radharani, Gandharvika. — Rasa-raj Krishna comes to this world to understand what Srimati Radharani feels in separation with Him. — Auspicious and inauspicious signs. — You make progress in Krishna consciousness as you lament your lack of Krishna consciousness. — Vrindavan: the other side — Nanda and Yashoda after Krishna’s departure. — If one has Krishna-prem then it’s impossible to tolerate separation, one will have to die. — Devotees don’t die in separation from Krishna, because it’ll make Him sad. — No one wants “happy all the time” stuff. — The spiritual world is not on the map, it’s all consciousness. — The real test is: what does the heart produce in separation from Krishna? — The treasure of human life: a rare connection with the devotee of Krishna. — Forever our aspiration is to be the servants of the servants of the devotees of Vrindavan who feel separation from Krishna.
