Srimati Visnupriya Devi


Srimati Visnupriya Devi



Śrī Viṣṇupriyā Devī’s bhajana-praṇālī, the method of her devotional absorption, is beneficial for everyone. In her life, she showed the perfect example of sādhana and japa, especially after Mahāprabhu’s acceptance of sannyāsa. Early every morning, before dawn, she would bathe in the Gaṅgā and worship her Deity of Mahāprabhu. She then began chanting harināma, performing one mahāmantra for each grain of rice to cook, and bathing the grains in her tears of love. Through harināma, she would thus sanctify each grain of rice. Being surcharged with nāma-rasa, the rice would attain a transcendental quality. Mahāprabhu accepted and was supremely pleased with her offering. After offering bhoga, Viṣṇupriyā would give prasāda to Śacī Mata and the elderly Īśāna Ṭhākura, and then she would take the last remnants. By trying to follow Śrī Viṣṇupriyā Devī’s ideal example and receiving her mercy, the conditioned souls can similarly develop taste for harināma. She thus purifies the devotees’ hearts of all ulterior desires opposed to bhakti.

In Kali-yuga, only kṛṣṇa-kīrtana is the great method of deliverance. In every moment of her life, Śrī Viṣṇupriyā Devī served and pleased Mahāprabhu through her absorption in harināma-rasa. Only Mahāprabhu did not take sannyāsa. Viṣṇupriyā Devī became a sannyāsīnī. She was constantly absorbed in the moods of the vraja-gopīs and engaged in transcendental sevā. And through the power of her sādhana, she nourished the bhakti of the devotees.
