Friday Program with class by Sudarshan Prabhu (Audio)

This Friday the devotees had a very sweet and very special program. Amongst other kirttan songs, Anya-abhilasa chadi was sung – a bhajan that is rarely heard in our ashram. The song describes the way of devotional life in a clear and hopeful manner, and we are urging everyone to look up this bhajan on page 195 in the yellow Kirttan Guide. As an example, here are a few verses:

(5) “Traveling to the holy places is only so much hard labour to attain some mental illusion when really the lotus feet of Sri Govinda are the perfection of one’s life. One should give up pride and envy, and with firm determination in the heart, one should always perform unalloyed worship of the Lord”
(10) “I will engage my lust in eagerness to serve Krishna, and I will use my anger against those who are envious of the devotees. I will be greedy to hear the topics of Hari in the association of the devotees. I will be illusioned if I fail to achieve my worshipable Lord, and I will feel proud to chant the glories of Krishna.”

During the class Sudarshan Prabhu read from Srila Sridhar Maharaj’s book entitled “Loving Search for the Lost Servant”. The audio recording of the class is attached below.
