Three New Brahmacaris   11.09.2011

Recently I gave saffron cloth to three devotees Markandeya, Jananivasa(kks) and Nityananda.

A brahmacari should live under the care of the guru, he should not have a private situation. Brahmacari gurukule vasan danta guror hitam. He should study the scriptures, he should beg alms and be a selfless servant.

In the Hari Bhakti Vilasa it is stated that a brahamacari should wear white cloth, but Srila Bhaktisiddhanta put his brahmacaris in saffron cloth for the sake of preaching. Saffron cloth is a responsibility ,there are more expectations from people. They expect that the brahmacari will know the scriptures,that he will know how to give lectures, that he will be an example in his personal conduct, in sadhana, in following spiritual standards, in eating, fasting, sleeping,in rising early, in chanting good japa, in enthusiasm in service, expert in all types of preaching, including leading kirtana, distributing books, giving lectures. He should make it his only business to be Krsna conscious.

…..and when they mature, they can lead many others in spiritual life with knowledge, kindness and saintliness.

All may not be attained at once, but now they must make a serious endeavor to make progress.

Yes I am looking for such brahmacaris to assist me in my mission of spreading Krsna consciousness all over the world.

Please bless them to be succesful in their endeavors, because such a brahmacari is a blessing to this earth and he is on the straight path back to Godhead and takes others with him.
