who is Samañöi Guru? How svarüpa is given in Gauòéya Vaiñëava Sampradäya?
The devotees want to know who is Samañöi Guru? How svarüpa is given in Gauòéya Vaiñëava Sampradäya?
So, in Çrémad Bhagavataà Canto 3 chapter 15 çloka 14 it is described -
vasanti yatra purusah
sarve, vaikuntha – murtayah
ye ‘nimitta – nimittena
It is said that in The Spiritual World, The Lord is being served non stop. The Premamayé Sevä of the Lord is done by the bodies that are totally Spiritual. Lord is being served in the Spiritual World by the Pärñada as who also have Spiritual bodies.
Now, in the commentary to this çloka in Préti sandarbha paragraph 10 Çréla Jéva Gosvämé says-
That Lord is being served in The Spiritual World by the two kinds of Pärñadäs, there are two kinds of Pärñadäs. What are the two Pärñadäs?
Number 1 they are called Sakriya Pärñada and number 2 are called Niñkriya Pärñada.
Sakriya means one actively serving Supreme Lord in The Spiritual World like Nanda- Yaçodä, Madhumaìgala, Subala, Lalitä Sakhé, Viçäkhä Sakhé, Rüpa Maïjaré, Ratraka Patraka etc. So many thousands of Them, They are serving Lord in Spiritual World, They are called Sakriya Pärñada. Active Pärñada who are serving the Lord actively and this thing you are hearing for the first time. There are two types of Pärñadäs.
One is Niñkriya Pärñada. What is Niñkriya Pärñada? Niñkriya Pärñada means those Pärñada who are like, you can say dummies in the Spiritual World; like in showroom they have dummies. They don’t move but they are just to beautify the place.
So Jéva Gosvämé is telling in the commented to this çloka that -
vaikunthasyeva bhagwato, jyotir ansh bhootah,
Vaikuntha loka Shobha Rüpa ye ananta moortayah
He is telling- In The Spiritual World, from the effulgence coming from The Lord, there are so many forms of the Pärñadäs of the Lord who don’t actually move.
They are, “Çobhä Rüpa”
They are beautifying the place.
And next what is Jéva Gosvämé saying- “Ananta Mürtayaù” means Niñkriya Pärñada who don’t actually move, who don’t actually practically serve the Lord. They are also infinite in number.
Pärñadäs of all rasas are there in Spiritual World. Niñkriya Pärñada like Sakha form of the Lord, Pärñada form of the Lord who don’t move, Gopé form of the Lord who don’t move, Maïjaré form of the Lord who don’t move similarly servants of the Lord. They all are beautifying the Spiritual World. And when one gets Prema, his body merges with that Pärñada form of the Lord and he serves the Lord eternally in the Spiritual World then.
The form is already there, when he reaches Prema, he will get that form. So there are two forms of the Lord – Niñkriya Pärñada and Sakriya Pärñada.
So, we have explained to you what are two kinds of Pärñadäs. Now we come to the second part of the question.
Second part is- Who is Samañöi Guru?
Samañöi Guru- Bhagavata Avatära.
Çréla Rüpa Gosvämé writes -
He is also the form of The Lord in the Spiritual World Goloka.
Like “Kåñëa’s” form there is “Balaräma”. He is also the form of The Lord.
Similarly another form of The Lord is here in Goloka is called Samañöi Guru.
He is an aggregate of all Guru’s and Vämapradeçaya.
Çréla Jéva Gosvämé writes -
On the left side of Çré Kåñëa stays Samañöi Guru and Samañöi Guru is also same in complexion as Çré Kåñëa. Samañöi Guru also wears “Pétämbara”. He stays on the left side of Çré Kåñëa and he owns all his functions of the Guru’s in the Bonafide Sampradäya.
Had it not been for the Jéva Gosvämé. We could have never known these intimate things happening in Spiritual World. And how even on the earth we would have known, if Jéva Gosvämé wouldn’t have written in his books that how Svarüpa is given. He is telling very clearly their are Niñkriya Pärñada and there is Samañöi Guru.
And now you understand the third part of the question that how Svarüpa is given in Gauòéya Vaiñëava Sampradäya?
The Spiritual Master has a special connection with Samañöi Guru. Spiritual Master or Guru is called Vyañöi Guru. Vyañöi Guru means individual Guru of the disciple. And Samañöi guru is there in the Spiritual World.
The spiritual master here has connection with the Samañöi Guru in the Spiritual World.
And you understand the process how Svarüpa is given?
Like my Gurudeva Çréla Ananta däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja when He gave me Svarüpa. How did he give me Svarüpa?
He had connection with the in the Spiritual World with Samañöi Guru. The Samañöi Guru tells amongst so many, thousands of lakhs of forms of the Maïjarés or däsis of Rädhä Kåñëa. Samañöi Guru tells in the heart of the Spiritual Master that this is the Eternal form of your disciple, by which he is going to serve Rädhä Kåñëa.
So, all the name, the qualities, the clothes which the Niñkriya Mürti is wearing anything, all the details are revealed in the heart of the individual Guru by the Samañöi Guru.
Actually if you see the entire thing is happening by the will of the Lord, Lord Çré Kåñëa only. Lord Çré Kåñëa only expands Himself as Samañöi Guru. Lord Kåñëa in the form of Samañöi Guru tell all the details of the disciples eternal form by which he is going to serve Rädhä Kåñëa in the heart of The Dikñä Guru.
And whatever is revealed in the heart of Dikñä Guru, Dikñä Guru just tells all his details and give to the disciple, by which the disciple meditates on the form and past times of the Lord and his service in those past times and hereby they attain perfections.
Çréla Gaura Kiçora Däsa Bäbäjé also got His Siddha Praëälé from His Guru this way.
Çréla Jagannätha däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja also got the Siddha Praëälé from his Guru the same way.
And Çréla Bhakti Vinoda Öhäkura also got his Siddha Praëälé from his Guru Vipin Bihäré Gosvämé same way.
And you will be surprise to know Bhakti Vinoda Öhäkura also gave Siddha Praëälé to his own son Lalita Prasäda Öhäkura.
And Bhakti Siddhänta Sarasvaté Öhäkura completely criticized Siddha Praëälé so much, Iskcon, as if it is something are demoniac.
But shockingly please understand if you put in the picture of Bhakti Vinoda Öhäkura Bäbäjé, Gaura Kiçora Däsa Bäbäjé and Jagannätha Däsa Bäbäjé, They all got Siddha Praëälé’s from their father, their Guru’s, all of them.
And Bhakti Vinod Öhäkura is father of Lalita Prasäda Öhäkura, brother of Bhakti Siddhänta. Bhakti Siddhänta’s brother got Praëälé from his father.
If Siddha Praëälé concept is wrong then why you putting the pictures of all this Bäbäjé’s on your Altar. They got it from their Guru’s and they give it to their disciples. And their disciple gave to their disciples even in this age.
There is no point criticizing something, criticizing those Äcärya’s.
There is no one putting the picture of Äcärya in the Altar and not following anything which they are telling you to follow…
Please try to understand Scriptures from the point of your Ñaò Gosvämé’s.
They are telling who is Samañöi Guru?
They are telling there are two Pärñada forms of The Lord in the Spiritual World. One is Niñkriya Pärñada, Sakriya Pärñada.
What is Samañöi Guru? They are Jéva Gosvämé is telling.
How Svarüpa is given? Everything is being told.
Why don’t we just understand everything from the point of view of Ñaòa Gosvämé’s our real Äcärya and tell this and give this knowledge to the entire human population.
Why don’t you follow and why don’t you give the real thing?
Why are you just so fanatically attached to these Institutional Äcärya’s, or Institutions.
Why are you not fanatically attached to Ñaò Gosvämé’s? They are telling very clearly, elaborating on every small aspect, which is there in Gauòéya Vaiñëava Sampradäya.
Who are Rüpänugä? Not any, this Institutional Äcäryanugä. Be a Gauòéya Vaiñëava. Be a real Gauòéya Vaiñëava.
Be a real genuine follower of Ñaò Gosvämé’s.
Be a real genuine follower of Gaura Kiçora däsa Bäbäjé, Jagannätha Däsa Bäbäjé. They never deviated, then why are you deviating
