Welkom bij Vaisnava Nieuws Nederland. Deze blog is speciaal opgezet voor de Nederlandse volgelingen van de Vaisnava’s. Veel teksten zijn niet vertaald naar het Nederlands om de originaliteit te behouden. Teksten die door professionele vertalers al vertaald zijn worden wel direct in het Nederlands gepost.


Het is de bedoeling dat volgelingen van alle Vaisnava organisaties in Nederland zich vrij voelen om ons te bezoeken. Alle Vaisnava’s worden hier gerespecteerd. Dit is een stap naar eenheid tussen de verschillende verenigingen, stichtingen enzovoort in de Nederlandse familie van Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

"All sorts of preceptors"

The meaning of the word, Guru (Spiritual master), is very grave. If the word is analyzed it's only two parts 'Gu' and 'ru' are obtained. Here 'Gu' signifies 'Darkness' and 'ru' means 'Light'. It simply indicates that he who is able to save forever illusioned persons from the clutches of darkened maya (illusion) and is able to make them reach the sun or light-like God will be considered to be described as a 'Guru'.

Similarly the meaning of the word, 'Sisya' (Disciple), has its own speciality. A disciple promptly places on his head every order of all known as spiritual masters. He carries out the order in question with responsibility, regularity and pleasure and adds to the happiness of Krishna, the original Guru of all, and his Diksha Guru and Siksa Guru and all other Vaisnavas.

The inherent meaning of the word Sisya, is associated with a person who always joyfully follows without any question the rules of all sorts of preceptors. In this age the difference between a preceptor and a disciple is going to be abolished forever.
