04 : Prabhupāda Meditations

As members of the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava sampradāya, we worship our own initiating gurus, all great devotees past and present, Śrī Śrī Gaura-Nitāi, and Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa.

In this monotheistic but multifaceted system of worship, some devotees feel particularly attracted to worship Śrīmatī Rādhikā. They prefer to chant Her names, recite Her pastimes, meditate on Her form, take Her side in squabbles with Kṛṣṇa, and claim the land of Vṛndāvana as Her property.

Other devotees take particular pleasure in the pastimes of Lord Caitanya. They roar out the name Gaurāṅga, preach His glories and pastimes, and prefer to reside in Navadvīpa.

Personally, I am astounded by the personality and pastimes of our beloved spiritual master, His Divine Grace Śrīla Prabhupāda. I like to tell Prabhupāda stories, although I have but a few of my own. I like to meditate on Prabhupāda; hence this book.
