Eternal Message of the Guru-parampara
[Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja:] If the jiva had fallen from there, from Goloka Vrndavana, Bhagavad-gita would be false. How? Bhagavad-gita states, yad gatva na nivartante, tad dhama parama mama (Gita, 15.6). What is the meaning? By practicing bhakti-yoga for thousands upon thousands of births, one is liberated and has a chance to go to that spiritual realm. And he will never return from there. The transcendental souls who are serving Krsna there are eternally liberated. Those from this world who are now liberated by practicing bhakti-yoga are serving Him in Vaikuntha, in His forms like Rama, Nrsimha, Kalki, or Vamana, or in Goloka as Mathuresa or Krsna. They have no chance to return. Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja has also written this.
[Question:] Someone may say, “Yes, we accept what Krsna spoke in the Bhagavad Gita, that once going to Vaikuntha from this world, we souls don’t fall again. But we did fall the first time – before we first came to this world.”
[Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja:] If that were true, this principle as stated in the Gita and other scriptures would still be a fallacy. For those souls who are already serving in that realm, there is no maya at all. There is no chance of becoming adverse to Krsna; no chance at all. Both for one who is eternally there and for one who has gone there from here – there is no in that realm.
We must try to follow our tattva-acaryas, our disciplic line of spiritual masters who have presented these truths; like Srila Jiva Gosvami, Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana, Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, and especially Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura. If anyone has this doubt, due to his misunderstanding the words of Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja, he will have to reconcile from other very bona fide gurus. Jiva Gosvami is a bona fide guru in established philosophical truths (tattva), especially in his Sandarbhas. He has explained every subject without room for doubt. We will have to read his books in order to understand.
It is especially essential to read the books of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, the Seventh Gosvami. He is also a bona fide guru. He has clearly explained all this in Jaiva-dharma. There he has written that innumerable eternal souls who are coming from Baladeva Prabhu in Goloka Vrndavana, where Nanda Baba and all the cowherd-men and boys reside. Regarding the gopis there, they are all nitya-siddha kayavyuha-rupa (bodily manifestations) of Srimati Radhika. Those gopis who are not bodily manifestations of Radhika are jivas coming from Baladeva. They are also eternally liberated and they are serving Krsna. This principle is also true in Dvaraka, and also in Vaikuntha. In Dvaraka, jivas are coming from Mula Sankarsana, and in Vaikuntha from Maha Sankarsana. They are all serving in one of two ways: in madhurya (Krsna’s sweet, human-like pastimes) or in aisvarya (Krsna’s opulent pastimes as Dvarakadhisa or Narayana).
Regarding those jivas manifested from the tatastha or marginal line, from Karanodakasayi Visnu, they also serve in madhurya or aisvarya when they are liberated.
Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja has accepted this line of guru parampara, and we have accepted the same. Also, he is a realized soul. He does not differ from the previous acaryas. He will never say anything that our guru parampara has not accepted. Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura has accepted Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, and Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja has accepted his Gurudeva.
I pray to Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja, that he may sprinkle his mercy on all of his followers so they will know what he wanted, and so that they will realize all truths. Any sincere devotee will realize that Srila Swami Maharaja explained the same thing that was told by our guru parampara. He has simply explained it in English. It is his great contribution that he has explained the same truths and nothing else.
