É MUITO QUERIDO Á MIM
Aquele que não inveja;
que é amigo sincero
de todos os seres vivos;
que não tem senso de posse;
que está livre do egoísmo;
que tem a mesma atitude
na tristeza ou na alegria;
que está sempre satisfeito,
servindo com devoção;
que é sempre determinado
tendo a mente e o intelecto
é muito querido a mim.
Quem nunca perturba os outros
nem se deixa perturbar,
além da dualidade
do sofrimento e prazer
,livre do medo e da angustia,
também é muito querido.
Aquele que não se apega
nem ao prazer nem a dor,
que não rejeita ou deseja,
ao que agrada ou aborrece,
é muito querido a Mim.
Quem age do mesmo modo
com amigos e inimigos,
e não muda de atitude
no ostracismo ou na glória,
no sucesso ou no fracasso;
quem nunca se contamina;
quem está sempre contente,
com tudo que lhe oferecem;
quem está sempre ocupado
em servir com devoção
– este Me é muito querido.
Quem trilha pelo caminho
do serviço em devoção,
e faz de Mim sua meta
é muito querido a Mim.
The Disciplic Succession
of the Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya
The Supreme Lord Krishna exhibited His omnipotent and almighty universal form of innumerable faces and eyes, revealing innumerable miraculous wonders, decorated with innumerable, dazzling ornaments, armed with innumerable gleaming weapons, magnificently attired and resplendently garlanded, annointed with equisite, celestial fragrances; phenomenally astounding, unlimited, effulgent and all pervading.
evam uktva tato rajan maha-yogesvaro harih darsayamasa parthaya paramam rupam aisvaram
sarvascaryamayam devam anantam visvato-mukham
isvarah paramah krishna sac-cid-ananda vigrahah anadir adir govindah sarva karana karanam
Lord Krishna is the supreme absolute controller, whose form is pure immortality, omniscience and bliss. He is without beginning, the origin of all, the cause of all causes and the source of the eternal Vedas.
All the incarnations are plenary portions or explansions of plenary expansions appearing in various universes to protect the theists; but Lord Krishna is the original Supreme Lord and the source of all.
ete camsa-kalah pumsah krishnas tu bhagavan svayam indras vyakulam lokam mrdayanti yuge yuge
Lord Krishna said I am situated as the soul within the heart of all beings, remembrance and forgetfulness comes from me. I can be known by the knowledge of the Vedas. I am the original creator of the Vedic scriptures and a knower of the Vedas.
sarvasya caham hrdi sannivistho mattah smrtir jnanam apohanam ca vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyo vedanta-krd veda-vid eva caham
Factually all the Vedic scriptures unamimously are the establisher of Lord Krishna as the Supreme Lord of all; but the unique speciality of the Bhagavad-Gita is that the Supreme Lord Krishna is directly speaking this divine revelation Himself.
Lord Krishna said only by unalloyed devotional service can I be understood as I am and can be seen directly. Only in this way can one enter into the mystery of my understanding.
bhaktya tu ananyaya sakya aham evam-vidho r'juna jnatum drastum ca tattvena pravestum ca parantapa
Understand that the Supreme Lord Krishna is the original soul of all living entities. For the benefit of the whole universe He has out of His causeless mercy manifested Himself appearing as a human being. He has manifested this by the power of His internal potency.
krsnam enam avehi tvam atmanam akhilatmanam jagad-dhitaya so'py atra dehivabhati mayaya
Lord Brahma said: My dear Lord Krishna, I pray to be so fortunate that in this life or in another life, wherever I may take birth even if it is in the animal species that I may be your devotee and engage myself in your devotional service.
brahmovaca tad astu me natha sa bhuri-bhago bhave'tra vanyatra tu va tirascam yenaham eko'pi bhavaj-jananam bhutva niseve tava pada-pallavam
O' Narada being very satisfied by your goodness and service you were taught the ultimate science of transcendental devotion to the Supreme Lord fully illuminating the truth of the soul which is perfectly known by souls surrendered to Lord Krishna.
tubyam ca narada bhrsam bhagavan vivrddha bhavena sadhu paritusta uvaca yogam jnanam ca bhagavatam atma-satattva-dipam yad vasudeva-sarana vidur anjasaiva
Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa
In course of time Vyasa bearing in mind the intelligence and short life span of humanity at large considered his compilation of the Vedas to be too difficult, so he divided the Vedic knowledge into different branches.

Visnuswami, Madhvacarya, Ramanuja and Nimbaditya will appear respectively as a portion of Vamana, Brahma, Ananta Sesha and Sanaka Kumara.

It is verified in Garga Samhita:
Vamana, Brahma, Ananta Sesha and Sanaka Kumara will appear as brahmanas by the order of Visnu, for the preservation of eternal righteousness in kali yuga. vamanas vidih sesah sanako visnu vakyatah dharmartha hetave caite bhavisyanti dvijah kalauVisnuswami, Madhvacarya, Ramanuja and Nimbaditya will appear respectively as a portion of Vamana, Brahma, Ananta Sesha and Sanaka Kumara. visnuswami vamanangsastatha madhvastu brahmanah ramanujastu sesangsa nimbaditya sanakasya caThese four saviours will be the establishers of the four authorised and empowered spiritual channels of disciplic succession in the period calculated from the reign of King Vikrama in 54 B.C. subsequently through the 432,000 year cycle of kali yuga. ete kalau yuge bhavyah sampradaya pravartakah samvatsare vikrama catvarah ksiti pavanahThese four authorised and empowered spiritual channels of disciplic succession are to be fully accepted by all beings; as any word, combination of words or formulation of sound frequencies, invoked or addressed, audible or inaudible, secret or revealed, ancient or contemporary outside their auspices prove to have absolutely no efficacy. sampradaya vihina ye mantraste nisphalah smritah tasmacca gamanang hyasti sampradaya narairapi
