SB 4.4.27

Madan Mohan Prabhu

SB 4.4.27 Satī concentrated all her meditation on the holy lotus feet of her husband, Lord Śiva, who is the supreme spiritual master of all the world. Thus she became completely cleansed of all taints of sin and quit her body in a blazing fire by meditation on the fiery elements.
Bg 8.24 —27
Dec 19 @ 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Bg 8.24 —27

Speaker:  Vidagdha Madhava Prabhu

Bg 8.24 — Those who know the Supreme Brahman attain that Supreme by passing away from the world during the influence of the fiery god, in the light, at an auspicious moment of the day, during the fortnight of the waxing moon, or during the six months when the sun travels in the north.
Bg 8.25 — The mystic who passes away from this world during the smoke, the night, the fortnight of the waning moon, or the six months when the sun passes to the south reaches the moon planet but again comes back.
Bg 8.26 — According to Vedic opinion, there are two ways of passing from this world – one in light and one in darkness. When one passes in light, he does not come back; but when one passes in darkness, he returns.
Bg 8.27 — Although the devotees know these two paths, O Arjuna, they are never bewildered. Therefore be always fixed in devotion.

SB 4.4.28

Speaker: HH Hanumatpresaka Swami

SB 4.4.28 When Satī annihilated her body in anger, there was a tumultuous roar all over the universe. Why had Satī, the wife of the most respectable demigod, Lord Śiva, quit her body in such a manner?

Fri
SB 4.4.29 —30
Dec 21 @ 6:00 am – 7:00 am
SB 4.4.29 —30

Speaker: Gaudacandra Prabhu

SB 4.4.29 It was astonishing that Dakṣa, who was Prajāpati, the maintainer of all living entities, was so disrespectful to his own daughter Satī, who was not only chaste but was also a great soul, that she gave up her body because of his neglect.
SB 4.4.30 Dakṣa, who is so hardhearted that he is unworthy to be a brāhmaṇa, will gain extensive ill fame because of his offenses to his daughter, because of not having prevented her death, and because of his great envy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Bg 8.28
Dec 21 @ 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Bg 8.28

Speaker:  Yugala Rasa Devi Dasi

Bg 8.28 — A person who accepts the path of devotional service is not bereft of the results derived from studying the Vedas, performing sacrifices, undergoing austerities, giving charity or pursuing philosophical and fruitive activities. Simply by performing devotional service, he attains all these, and at the end he reaches the supreme eternal abode.

SB 4.4.31 — 34
Dec 24 @ 6:00 am – 7:00 am
SB 4.4.31 — 34

Speaker: Vidagdha Madhava Prabhu

SB 4.4.31 While people were talking among themselves about the wonderful voluntary death of Satī, the attendants who had come with her readied themselves to kill Dakṣa with their weapons.
SB 4.4.32 They came forward forcibly, but Bhṛgu Muni saw the danger and, offering oblations into the southern side of the sacrificial fire, immediately uttered mantric hymns from the Yajur Veda by which the destroyers of yajñic performances could be killed immediately.
SB 4.4.33 When Bhṛgu Muni offered oblations in the fire, immediately many thousands of demigods named Ṛbhus became manifested. All of them were powerful, having achieved strength from Soma, the moon.
SB 4.4.34 When the Ṛbhu demigods attacked the ghosts and Guhyakas with half-burned fuel from the yajña fire, all these attendants of Satī fled in different directions and disappeared. This was possible simply because of brahma-tejas, brahminical power.

SB 4.5.1 — Maitreya said: When Lord Śiva heard from Nārada that Satī, his wife, was now dead because of Prajāpati Dakṣa’s insult to her and that his soldiers had been driven away by the Ṛbhu demigods, he became greatly angry.

Dec 26 @ 6:00 am – 7:00 am
SB 4.5.2 — 4

Speaker:  HH Bhakti Dhira Damodara Swami

SB 4.5.2 — Thus Lord Śiva, being extremely angry, pressed his lips with his teeth and immediately snatched from his head a strand of hair which blazed like electricity or fire. He stood up at once, laughing like a madman, and dashed the hair to the ground.
SB 4.5.3 — A fearful black demon as high as the sky and as bright as three suns combined was thereby created, his teeth very fearful and the hairs on his head like burning fire. He had thousands of arms, equipped with various weapons, and he was garlanded with the heads of men.
SB 4.5.4 — When that gigantic demon asked with folded hands, “What shall I do, my lord?” Lord Śiva, who is known as Bhūtanātha, directly ordered, “Because you are born from my body, you are the chief of all my associates. Therefore, kill Dakṣa and his soldiers at the sacrifice.”
