All glory to the Divine Master
and the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna Chaitanya
I offer my humble obeisances unto the lotus feet of my divine master Sri Guru-padapadma Om Visnupad Astottara-sata-sri Srimad Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj and all the Vaisnavas. By his unlimited grace, the exalted Vaisnava community has already received with transcendental joy many glorious publications of Srila Guru Maharaj, the guardian of devotion, from our Nabadwip Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math and branches. Now, at the most auspicious moment of Srila Guru Maharaj’s 96th holy appearance day, we are blessed to see the fourth publication of the Sermons of the Guardian of Devotion.
Srila Guru Maharaj’s delivery of divine discourses of Hari-katha is a direct dispensation of the illustrious Om Visnupad Prabhupad Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, our most worshippable Param Gurudev, and all the nectarean flow of divine ecstasy from the ocean of grace, the golden Lord Sri Gaurangadev. Scholars of India and the world over have acclaimed Srila Guru Maharaj’s holy talks for their undisputed authenticity, saintly simplicity, and charm. His masterful ability to bring ever-new illumination to the world through his most elevated spiritual insight is the joy of the sincere devotees and genuine theistic scholars. This smaller treastise contains five of His Grace’s informal talks with the devotees hitherto unpublished, and I am confident that it will be received with great spiritual joy by both the new entrants to the divine life as well as the veterans. The work was made possible by the untiring efforts of Sripad Hari Charan Brahmachari Seva Ketan Prabhu and Sripad Mahananda Das Brahmachari Prabhu, to whom my unceasing gratitude is due. May they be blessed by the guardian of devotion Sri Srila Guru Maharaj. The fortunate seekers who carefully read this booklet cannot but be supremely benefitted in their spiritual march.
