Narasingha Maharaja speaks with Prema Kishora Prabhu on the disappearance day of Srila Sridhara Maharaja in Vrndavana. Narasingha Maharaja speaks on the glories of Srila Sridhara Maharaja and how the depth of his contribution has effected the greater Vaishnava world.

Narasingha Maharaja reads and speaks on verse 42 of the Prema Dhama Deva Stotram which indicates the origin of Gaura-tattva and is a jewel amongst these prayers composed by Srila Sridhara Maharaja.

Prema Kishora Prabhu describes his first meeting with Srila Sridhara Maharaja and the question that he asked about guru-tattva.

Narasingha Maharaja then speaks on the many misconceptions and deviations that came after the disappearance of Srila Prabhupada. He speaks on how voting should not be practiced in the Vaishnava community and that the Absolute Truth does not descend through committees. Being autonomous the brahmana is not an institutional being, but rather a truth-seeker and is therefore not ruled by these things. He says we are not eka guru-vadis, who believe in the idea of having only one guru. Even Srila Prabhupada considered Srila Sridhara Maharaja to be his siksa guru. So it is up to each generation to come in connection with those gurus.
