Hare Krishna, Could you please send soft copy to me. Sunday, August 5, Sri Brahma-vaivarta Purana – complete. Who is His father, Vasudeva? When He came what did He do? In what form did Lord Hari appear? O sage, why was the fearless Supreme Person afraid of Kamsa, who was insignificant as a worm or an insect? Why did the master of the universes enjoy pastimes with cowherd girls? Engoish were these cowherd boys? What pious deeds had they performed? Why did He leave them and go to Mathura?
O very fortunate one, please tell the story of the Lord, hearing and chanting whose glories are the greatest of pious deeds.
Brahmavaivarta-Purana (Sanskrit Text with English Translation)
Who, approaching an ocean of nectar, would not wish to drink from it? I know that you are very fortunate, pious, and glorious. O purifier of the people, you wander here and there to purify the worlds.
You are completely pure. You are a pure devotee of Lord Krsna. With the dust of your feet you purify this earth, the maintainer of all. That is why you wish to hear the very auspicious topics of Lord Hari.
They who hear the beautiful and auspicious topics of Lord Hari become holy places of pilgrimage. Simply by hearing the hearer, purifies his family and all his relatives. Hearing the nectar of topics about Lord Hari, his life is a success. Always worshipping the Lord, 2. Offering obeisances to Him, 3. Chanting His mantras, 4. Hearing His glories, 8. Yearning to attain Him, and 9. Hearing of them, he performs these kinds vaivarra devotional service.
In this way his birth in Bharata-varsa bears its fruits. He lives a long life and never perishes. As a snake will not approach Garuda, so time does not puraana him.
Headed by anima-siddha, the mystic perfections approach, eager to serve him. Who can attack him? What can an attacker do to him? O sage, afraid of its own death, death itself will not approach him.
brahna In this birth you are your father, Brahma. He is a devotee. He is the best of devotees. He is the best of the wise. He delivers seven generations before and seven generations after, seven generations of grandparents, children, grandchildren, and other relatives.
All the holy nrahma on the surface of the earth are present in that place. His sins are destroyed by a breeze that has touched a devotee. They are eaten by worms for as long as the sun and moon exist. If he sees him, a wise man bathes in the Ganga or glances at the sun, and in vavarta way becomes purified. His sins are destroyed. Lord Krsna stays in his heart. Go to a human womb in Vraja! I will become a gopi!
brahma-vaivarta-puranam: Sri Brahma-vaivarta Purana – complete
What will I do to prevent it! O breaker of fears please tell me. O Lord, without You every moment will become a hundred yugas. O Lord glorious as the autumn moon, using the cakora engish of My eyes I drink the nectar of Your face day and night. You are My life. You are My treasure. Awake of asleep, I always meditate on Your lotus feet. O Lord, without serving You I cannot live for a moment.
engglish He reassured Her and removed Her fears. You will go with Me and also take birth on the earth. O goddess, I will go to Vraja and enjoy pastimes with You in the forest. If I am present why should You be afraid? Saying this, Lord Hari, the master of the universes, became silent.
Brahma-vaivarta puranam. Translated into English by Rajendra Nath Sen
Why should He be afraid? Of what would He, the killer of fears, be afraid?
Why did Sridama quarrel with Radha? What you briefly told before, now please tell at length. One time, in a rasa-mandala in a secluded place in a great forest in Goloka, Lord Hari enjoyed pastimes with Sri Radha. Overcome with bliss, Radha could not understand Herself or anything else. She has a billion faivarta gopi lurana. She wore exquisite garments and Her beauty was puurana with jewel puraa. The great goddess said to them: I will give Krsna and this gopi the result They deserve.
Instead, uprana the Lord to My beautiful pavilion and keep Him there. She departed with 1 gopis, travelling on a chariot O servant of a rake, go away! I will see what kind of beautiful lover Your master has now!
By practice of mystic yoga she gave up her life. Seeing the river that Viraja had become, She went home. O beautiful one, beautiful one, how can I live without you? Now have a form more beautiful than the beautiful form you had. O chaste one, your previous form has now become a river. She was the colour of a beautiful campaka flower and her lips were ripe bimba fruits. She was beautiful with beautiful designs and pictures.
Her braided hair was very beautiful. On the tip of her nose was an elephant pearl. She was opulent with many tinkling ornaments and tinkling jewel anklets. She was very happy with her seven sons. Her ;urana filled with unsatisfied desires, she lamented greatly. The living entities will never drink your water. Fools, go to beautiful Jambudvipa on the earth! They will stay happily around different islands. Unhappy, all the boys went to their mother.
Then, their necks bowed with devotion, they all went to the surface of the earth. From the youngest to the eldest, each ocean was twice as large as the preceding one. Their liquid will be used to cultivate grains on the earth. Unhappy in separation from their mother and brothers, all the boys wept. She fainted out of grief she vqivarta for her sons and husband. Gazing at her beloved, she became plunged in an ocean of bliss. In this way, even though she had abandoned her sons, Lord Hari became pleased with her.
By the power of My blessing you will always protect your sons. Then Krsna entered that palace and approached Her.
