discourse in 2009 by Sripad Vaishnav Maharaj (Srutasrava Prabhu at that
time) glorifying the position of Sri Baladev, Nityananda Prabhu, and
Sri Guru. A lecture on 5 August 2009 given during Srila Bhakti Sundar
Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj's last visit to Bangkok.
"So that Baladev, all of that shakti, all of that energy, is changed
into merciful dispensation in the form of Nityananda Prabhu. And then
Nityananda Prabhu has come to us as our Gurudev. The position of guru
is the embodiment of Nityananda Prabhu's mercy dispensation, and in
that way it is coming to all of us, without any consideration."
