A faithful follower of Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj and Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj, we have been very fortunate to have his association during his extended stays at the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram in San Jose, California.
Through the UCSC Bhakti Yoga Club, the devotees in Soquel arranged a program at the University of California at Santa Cruz where Sripad Janardan Maharaj and Sripad Puri Maharaj spoke.
Sripad Puri Maharaj gave his lecture on The Evolution of Consciousness, wherein he systematically explains how life comes from life.
Many students attended and asked thoughtful questions about the popular Darwinian theory of evolution, the meaning of devotional service, Quantum physics, etc
Sripad Puri Maharaj speaks about how Consciousness is superior to matter and how Bhagavan is the Super Consciousness.
Sripad Janardan Maharaj explains how devotional service is ahaituky apratihata, unmotivated and uninterrupted because It exists on Its own plane and is irresistible.
