Originally released as part of the Kartika Series, these wonderful evening lectures were delivered in Mayapura Dhama during the month of Kartika 1992. These transcendental classes breath the atmosphere of the holy Dhama and cover all the verses of the beautiful poem by Satyavrata Muni which devotees daily sing to Lord Damodara in this auspicious month. In his explanations His Holiness follows the little known commentaries of Srila Sanatana Goswami and extracts a lot of nectar from each verse to the delight of the devotees present. Bonus: Parikrama tape with intimate visits to various neighbouring temples.

The second part of this series are intimate classes which were recorded during the Navadvipa-mandala parikrama early 1994, in which His Holiness and his very dear associate His Holiness Giriraja Maharaja take turns reading and explaining the Sri Caitanya-Bhagavata, which is a reservoir of Gauranga-lila.

Exciting, beautiful stories, sweet Vaisnava-dealings.

Talks Between the Lord and Ramananda Raya

These lectures, given in New Zealand, offer a profound analysis of this very important as well as endearing part of the Caitanya-Caritamrita, in which Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself questions His confidential associate Ramananda Raya about the ultimate goal of human life. In the series of inquiries and responses which follow, a wealth of spiritual knowledge is revealed and both the Lord and His devotee taste great transcendental bliss.
1991 - 3 TAPES

Jaya Sacinandana!

These potent lectures with their natural flow illuminate the technical explanations of Srila Krishnadasa Kaviraja's Sri Caitanya-Caritamrita. This album combines two seminars, namely "The Causes of Lord Caitanya's Descent", and "The Ecstatic Manifestations of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu". The first one was originally released separately. Recorded in a transcendental setting of Sri Mayapura Dhama, right before the 1992 Goura-Purnima festival, it covers the reasons for Lord Caitanya's Appearance as described in the Adi-Lila. The other seminar was recorded in New Zealand. These are unusual lectures, which discuss in detail the bodily transformations of Lord Caitanya when He is feeling separation from Krishna. Most devotees find these parts of the Caitanya-Caritamrita a little difficult to digest, but when heard from the lips of realized souls, these advanced topics miraculously appear within view of even neophyte devotees to appreciate. Very helpful if you want to deepen your understanding of the position and the inner moods of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
1992 - 9 TAPES with VINYL ALBUM

Lord Caitanya dances at Ratha-yatra

Two beautiful CC classes given in preparation for the Ratha-yatra festival. Indepth explanations of the finer points, like Lord Caitanya's mood of seeing Jagannatha Swami as Vrindavana-Krishna, the loving exchanges They experience during the cart ride, how devotees can develop their eternal relationships during kirtana etc.
