————— So one should read or hear chandamsi. Chandamsy adhiyita guroh. It is guru’s duty. Adau gurv-asrayam. Tad-vijnanartham sa gurum eva abhigacchet [MU 1.2.12]. Tad-vijnana, transcendental knowledge, one should approach guru. So guru-kula means guru’s place. So he keeps the disciples to learn the Vedic literature. This is guru-kula. We are constructing such big, big houses. Why? We are inviting people to come here and live in this guru-kula and learn Vedic literature. This is our purpose. Bombay is a very big city, people are rich, so we can give you nice room, nice prasadam. Come here, live here at least once in a week and learn Vedic literature, Vedic civilization. The essence of Vedic literature is Srimad-Bhagavatam. Bhasyayam brahma-sutranam vedartha-paribrmhitam. Our mission is to invite people to take advantage of learning Vedic literature, chandamsi. And what is the ultimate goal of studying Vedic literature? That is explained in the Bhagavad-gita, vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyam: [Bg. 15.15] to understand Krsna. So therefore our movement is known as Krsna consciousness movement. ———————————-
