    Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    Sanatan Şiskşa - Sri Krshna Caitanya's instructions to Sanatan Goswami

    Vers 1-6

    vande śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya- devaḿ taḿ karuṇārṇavam
    kalāv apy ati-gūḍheyaḿ bhaktir yena prakāśitā

    I offer respectful obeisances unto Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya,
    who is an ocean of mercy in this age of Kali
    who manifested the confidential divine devotional service – bhakti.

    jaya jaya śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya nityānanda
    jayādvaita-candra jaya gaura-bhakta-vṛnda

    All glories to Krişna-Cetanya, Nityananda, Adveta and the devotees’ group of Gora (the Golden).

    eita kahiluń sambandha-tattvera vicāra
    veda-śāstre upadeśe, kṛṣṇa — eka sāra

    (Śrī Caitanya said) I have thus described the analysis (vicāra) of the philosophical principle (tattva) regarding the relations (sambandha) (with Krişna)
    All the Vedic literature instructs that Krişna is the only (eka) essence (sāra).

    ebe kahi, śuna, abhidheya-lakṣaṇa
    yāhā haite pāi — kṛṣṇa, kṛṣṇa-prema-dhana

    Now I will talk about the means (abhidheya) whose simptom (lakṣaṇa)
    is to get Krişna and the love treasure for Krişna

    kṛṣṇa-bhakti abhidheya, sarva-śāstre kaya
    ataeva muni-gaṇa kariyāche niścaya

    All revealed writings say that divine devotional service Krişna is the mean.
    therefore all wise persons are firmly fixed (in bhakti).

    śrutir mātā pṛṣṭā diśati bhavad ārādhana-vidhiḿ
    yathā mātur vāṇī smṛtir api tathā vakti bhaginī
    purāṇādyā ye vā sahaja-nivahās te tad-anugā
    ataḥ satyaḿ jātaḿ mura-hara bhavān eva śaraṇam

    The revealed writings, like a mother, when are asked about the object of veneration- śruti mātā pṛṣṭā vidhiḿ ārādhana
    mention You (Krişna) - diśati bhavad
    as a mother instructs (her children) - yathā mātur vāṇī

    The writings that revealed the historic deeds (regarding the avatars of the Supreme Lord and His devotees) – smṛti
    like a sister say the same - bhaginī vakti tathā
    and thus led by the Puranas, like brother and sister – ataḥ purāṇādyā ye vā sahaja-nivahās
    followed by these (the revealed scripture – şruti) - te tad anugā
    they certainly know the truth - eva satyaḿ jātaḿ
    that you are the shelter, oh the one that killed the Mura demon (Lord Krişna) - bhavān śaraṇam mura-hara

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    Vers 7-8

    advaya tattva kṛṣṇa svayaḿ bhagavān
    svarūpa śakti rūpe tāńra haya avasthāna


    Krişna is the Supreme Lord Himself - kṛṣṇa svayaḿ bhagavān
    (and) philosophical principle of knowledge nondual (means in Him there is no contradiction, as it is the material energy) - tattva jāna advaya
    His internal energy is a form of manifestation of His- śakti svarūpa rūpe haya avasthāna tāńra

    Tika:
    In the next verse Şri Cetanya explains the way this internal energy is manifested:

    svāḿśa-vibhinnāḿśa-rūpe haā vistāra
    ananta vaikuṇṭha-brahmāṇḍe karena vihāra


    (Krişna) expands (Himself) in forms which are Himself (they belong to the category Supreme Lord bhagavan -tattva) - vistāra haā rūpe sva-aḿśa
    and in deviated forms (as the spiritual souls or the material energy) - vibhinna-aḿśa
    On the unlimited spiritual planets and the material universes, where He makes His plays - ananta vaikuṇṭha brahmāṇḍe karena vihāra

    Tika:
    n Bhagavad-gita Şri Krişna confirmă aceste lucruri:

    bhūmir āpo 'nalo vāyuḥ / khaḿ mano buddhir eva ca
    ahańkāra itīyaḿ me / bhinnā prakṛtir aṣṭadhā


    This my material energy has eight divisions, as follows
    earth bhūmi) water (āpa) fire (anala) air (vayu) space or eter (khaḿ)
    mind (mana) intelligence (buddhi) and certainly the false ego (ahań-kāra)

    apareyam itas tv anyāḿ / prakṛtiḿ viddhi me parām
    jīva-bhūtāḿ mahā-bāho / yayedaḿ dhāryate jagat


    Oh, most powerful (Arjuna) you should understand that this (material energy described previoiusly) is inferior,
    but beyond this there is another energy of Mine, superior, who are the living beings - jiva bhutam
    who were given the univers.


    The nature of the material, external energy (bahiranga şakti ) is to be inert and thus being inferior (apara).
    The marginal energy the souls (tataşta şakti) is superior (para) to the external (material) energy due to the presence of consciousness.
    And this superiority of consciousness is expressed by the sustenance and acceptance of this material world, to get pleasure out of it.

    Dandvat Prabhu!

    Thanks for this thread. Just a quick question, isn't there another site on the net that has this info? If yes, you could just post the link to that instead of typing everything out post by post here. Just a thought...

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    Vers 9-15

    svāḿśa-vistāra catur-vyūha, avatāra-gaṇa
    vibhinnāḿśa jīvatāńra śaktite gaṇana

    The expansions of His personal forms are quadruple expansions (Sańkarṣaṇ, Pradyumna, Aniruddha and Vāsudev)
    and the multitude of forms that descend (in the material world)- svāḿśa-vistāra catur-vyūha, avatāra-gaṇa
    the deviated forms are the living beings belonging to the category of (His) energy - vibhinnāḿśa jīvatāńra śaktite gaṇana

    sei vibhinnāḿśa jīva dui ta' prakāra
    eka 'nitya-mukta' eka 'nitya-saḿsāra'

    These deviated forms, the living beings, are of two kinds - sei vibhinna-aḿśa jīva dui ta' prakāra
    Some are eternally liberated (in the spiritual word), others are all the time in cycle of birth and death - eka 'nitya-mukta' eka 'nitya-saḿsāra'

    nitya mukta nitya kṛṣṇa caraṇe unmukha
    kṛṣṇa pāriṣada nāma bhuje sevā sukha

    Those who are eternally liberated are always inclined to the feet of Krişna - nitya mukta nitya kṛṣṇa caraṇe unmukha
    They are called the associates of Krişna and taste the pleasure to serve (Him) - nāma pāriṣada kṛṣṇa bhuje sukhasevā

    nitya-bandha kṛṣṇa haite nitya-bahirmukha
    'nitya saḿsāra', bhuje narakādi duḥkha

    Those who are indifferent toward Krişna are perpetually chained (to the material world) - nitya bahirmukha krishna haite nitya bandha
    always in the cycle of birth and death - nitya-samsara
    and experiment the hellish sufferings - bhunje duhkha narakadi

    sei doṣe māyā piśācī daṇḍa kare tāre
    ādhyātmikādi tāpa traya tāre jāri' māre

    Because of this fault (indifference toward Krişna) the witch who governs the material world punish them - sei doshe pisaci maya tare kare danda
    (and) burns them with the three types of sufferings beginning with those coming from the body and mind - tare jari tapa-traya mare adhyatmika-adi

    kāma-krodhera dāsa haā tāra lāthi khāya
    bhramite bhramite yadi sādhu-vaidya pāya

    tāńra upadeśa-mantre piśācī palāya
    kṛṣṇa-bhakti pāya, tabe kṛṣṇa nikaṭa yāya

    Becoming the servant of lusty desire and of anger, due to being pushed by them- dāsa kāma-krodhera haā tāra lāthi khāya
    They wander until they meet a spiritually realized person - bhramite bhramite yadi sādhu
    Who, as a doctor through the mantras which give instructions - tāńra vaidya upadeśa-mantre
    Take out the witch, who flies away - pāya piśācī palāya
    And in this way one can obtained the divine service for Krişna - tabe pāya kṛṣṇa-bhakti
    (and finally) goes (into the spiritual world) to Krişna - nikaṭa yāya kṛṣṇa

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    Vers 16-17

    kāmādīnāḿ kati na katidhā pālitā durnideśās
    teṣāḿ jātā mayi na karuṇā na trapā nopaśāntiḥ
    utsṛjyaitān atha yadu-pate sāmprataḿ labdha-buddhis
    tvām āyātaḥ śaraṇam abhayaḿ māḿ niyuńkṣvātma-dāsye


    Begining with lust, how many were not the desire which made me to suffer kāma adīnāḿ kati na duḥ-nideśāḥ
    And in how many ways I took their shelter - katidhā pālitā teṣāḿ
    (and) they had no mercy on me - na jātā karuṇā mayi
    I had neither shame nor peace - na trapā na upa śāntiḥ
    Now I became intelligent (having discrimination power) - sāmprataḿ labdha-buddhis
    And thus I renounced them oh, protector of Yadu dinasty (Krişna) - atha utsṛjya etān pate yadu
    I came to take Your shelter to get rid of these fears - āyātaḥ śaraṇam tvām abhayam
    Please engage me directly in Your service - niyuńkṣva mām ātma-dāsye

    kṛṣṇa bhakti haya abhidheya pradhāna
    bhakti mukha nirīkṣaka karma-yoga-jāna


    the loving service for Krişna is the essential goal (of life) - kṛṣṇa-bhakti haya abhidheya-pradhāna
    the face of the service out of love (bhakti) cannot be seen (because of other goals like) - mukha bhakti nirīkṣaka
    following the prescribed duties (karma), attaining the mystic powers and of liberation (yoga),
    realizing transcendental knowledge (ghiana - jāna) - karma-yoga-jāna

    Tika:
    The fact that Bhakti is the essential goal of life, is mentioned in Şrimad Bhagavatam (1.2.6):

    sa vai puḿsāḿ paro dharmo yato bhaktir adhokṣaje
    ahaituky apratihatā yayātmā suprasīdati


    That which is certainly- sa vai
    the highest (transcendental) prescribed duty for the human kind - paro dharma puḿsāḿ
    is the loving service for the Supreme Lord - bhaktir adhokṣaje
    which is without cause (being the intrinsic nature of the soul) ahaituky
    uninterrupted (when becomes manifested ) - apratihatā
    by which the soul becomes very happy yaya atmā supra-sīdati

    18-19

    ei saba sadhanera ati tuccha bala
    krishna-bhakti vina taha dite nare phala

    All these practices have an insignificant power.- ei saba sadhanera bala ati tuccha
    without Bhakti for Krişna they are not able to give result - vina krishna-bhakti taha dite nare phala

    Tika:
    This is why many impersonalists use Bhakti-yoga to attain their purposes.
    To substantiate His statement Sri Krishna-Caitanya quotes Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (1.5.12):

    naiṣkarmyam apy acyuta bhāva varjitaḿ
    na śobhate jānam alaḿ nirajanam
    kutaḥ punaḥ śaśvad abhadram īśvare
    na cārpitaḿ karma yad apy akāraṇam

    Liberation from any debts (and the peace that follows) without affection for the Infallible One - naiṣkarmyam apy varjitaḿ bhāva acyuta
    It is not beautiful; either the transcendental knowledge is pure - na śobhate alaḿ jānam nirajanam
    What to say about the repeated activities, which are not dedicated to the Supreme Controler - kutaḥ punaḥ karma na ca api arpitam īśvare
    They are always useless and inauspicious - yad akāraṇam śaśvad abhadram

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    20-21

    tapasvino dāna-parā yaśasvino
    manasvino mantra-vidaḥ su-mańgalāḥ
    kṣemaḿ na vindanti vinā yad-arpaṇaḿ
    tasmai subhadra-śravase namo namaḥ

    Those engaged in austerities and charitable acts - tapasvinaḥ dāna-parāḥ
    Those who became famous, those who practice meditation and those experts in mantras —yaśasvinaḥ manasvinaḥ mantra-vidaḥ
    Without to dedicate them to the One - vinā arpaṇam yat
    About is worth to hear and to show respect (the Supreme Lord) - su-bhadra śravase tasmai namaḥ namaḥ
    Cannot really attain what is auspicious- na vindanti kṣemamsu-mańgalāḥ

    kevala jāna 'mukti' dite nāre bhakti vine
    kṛṣṇonmukhe sei mukti haya vinā jāne

    The transcendental knowledge alone cannot give liberation - kevala jāna nāre dite mukti
    Without transcendental knowledge - vine jāne
    but practicing devotional service without attachment for Krişna- bhakti vinā unmukhe kṛṣṇa
    one attains liberation (from the chain of suffering) - sei haya mukti

    Tika:
    Sri Caitanya says herein that by such bhakti, without attachment for the Lord,
    one does not develop prema - divine love for the Lord,
    and as such on cannot attain the Lord and His transcendental abode.
    So by attaining the liberated stage one may go no further than
    the Brahman effulgence area of the spiritual world.
    Al long as one does not want the Lord, how can one get Him?

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    22-23

    Sri Caitanya quotes further from Bhagavat Puran (10.14.4):

    sreyah-sritim bhaktim udasya te vibho
    klisyanti ye kevala-bodha-labdhaye
    tesham asau klesala eva sishyate
    nanyad yatha sthula-tushavaghatinam

    For those who renounce the auspicious path of devotion to You, oh Great One ye udasya sreyah sritim bhaktim te vibho
    And only accept the great difficulties to get transcendental knowledge - kevala lklisyanti abdhaye bodha
    Certainly they remain with nothing else but pain - eva na tesham sishyate anyad klesala
    Like those who beat husks of rice - avaghatinam yatha sthula-tusha

    This pain can be avoided and one can easily get liberation from illusion,
    just by surrendering to Sri Krishna; in this connection Sri Caitanya quotes Şri Krişna (Bg 7.14)

    daivi hy esha guna-mayi mama maya duratyaya
    mam eva ye prapadyante mayam etam taranti te

    Certainly these My divine modes of nature are very difficult to surpass - hy esha daivi guna mayi duratyaya
    (they are) My illusory energy - mama maya
    Those who surrender to Me - ye prapadyante mam
    certainly cross over this illusory energy - eva taranti te etam mayam

    24-26

    'kṛṣṇa-nitya-dāsa' jīva tāhā bhuli' gela
    ei doṣe māyā tāra galāya bāndhila

    The living entity has forgtten that he is an eternal servant of Krishna - jīva tāhā bhuli nitya dāsa kṛṣṇa
    For this fault he is bound on the neck (by the chain) of material energy - ei doṣe tāra gela bāndhila galāya māyā

    tāte kṛṣṇa bhaje, kare gurura sevana
    māyā-jāla chuṭe, pāya kṛṣṇera caraṇa

    Therefore if one worships Krishna and serves the spiritual master - tāte kare kṛṣṇa bhaje gurura sevana
    the river of the illusory energy goes away and one gets the feet of Krişna - māyā-jāla chuṭe pāya caraṇa kṛṣṇera

    cāri varṇāśramī yadi kṛṣṇa nāhi bhaje
    svakarma karite se raurave paḍi' maje

    If the followers of the four social and spiritual orders of life dont worship Krishna - yadi se cāri varṇa āśramī nāhi bhaje kṛṣṇa
    by performing their prescribed duty they will fall in the hell named Raurava - karite sva-karma paḍi maje raurave
