• 4th sloka Damodarastakam;
  • Children are very restless, but when we grow up, we get more serious (we see this in Krsna as well);
  • In the Bhagavatam, Shukadeva Gosvami described the lilas of only one single day of Krsna.- Sukadeva using the word “etah” means that he is directly seeing all those lilas he’s described;
  • This material body cannot tolerate prema (when one attains bhava, one dies);
  • Uddhava glorifies the rudha-bhava of the gopis: what is the use of being Lord Brahma if we don’t even hear about the glories of the gopi’s prema for Krishna?;
  • Sloka mamottamasloka-janesu sakhyam (SB 6.11.27): we want to be the friend of the devotees so that they can share their realization with us;- Types of mukti;
  • Manah siksa: we should give up Vaikuntha katha;
  • Importance of the tattva siddhanta;
  • Gopis have no bodily conception, so how can they cope with their bodily or household activities?
  • How could the gopis attain to Krsna if they had no brahma-jñana? Because they are completely absorbed in Krishna, who is Bhagavan.- Mohini Rupa and Lord Shiva;
  • Krishna is so eager to listen to the chastising words of the gopis;
  • We have to stay in Braja under the guidance of the nitya siddha gopis, following in their footsteps (in your sadhaka form and siddha form);
  • Symptom of a chaste lady (stays inside the house);
  • Raghunatha Das Gosvami does the highest prayer to one’s guru (“Guru vandana”): the first sloka of Vilapa kusumanjali;
  • 3 kinds of sakhis (krsna paksa, radha paksa and ubhay paksa);
  • Manjari bhava: everything that happens with Srimati Radhika reflects in the body of the manjaris (before Sriman Mahaprabhu manifesting this by Srila Rupa Gosvami, this was unknown to this world);
  • Never think you are Radha, Lalita, Vishakha, but, instead, desire to serve under their guidance (anugatya mayi seva).- Mahaprabhu sent Pradyumna Mirsa to listen to harikatha from Raya Ramananda. Although Srila Hari das Thakura is famous for chanting 300.000 holy names daily, the mood of Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha Das Gosvami, Raya Ramananda is way higher than his.
