A Speck of Dust of
Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math

Sincerity is always necessary in our practising life. Sincerity is most necessary in our life. Gurudev also said that many devotees may have sincerity, but only 10% or 5% of the devotees have chastity. Gurudev said it.

When Srila Raghunath Das Goswami Prabhu stayed at Radha Kunda, some devotee, a Vraja basi, used to every day bring him some buttermilk in a dona (দোনা), a bowl made from leaves. But one time that devotee could not bring a bowl from the usual place, and instead he brought it from some other place. Das Goswami Prabhu threw it away. He said, "I only accept a bowl from Radha Kunda or Kusum Sarovar." That is the kind of chastity they have. They are Radharani's followers, not followers of anybody else...

You are devotees of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, and Gurudev says that you are all on the ship of Chaitanya Saraswat Math, and everybody has to come under one umbrella.

Here is Purujit Prabhu, he always follows Gurudev's instruction, and I am telling you the last word: you have to follow his instruction. Sometimes something may happen, but you have to always follow his instruction because he always follows Gurudev's instructions.

Sometimes we have some problem, or some ego... We hear, "Come under one umbrella," but we bring our own raincoat.

Another time Gurudev said to me, "If you become a speck of dust, dhuli-kana (ধূলিকণা), of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, then I will make one place for you." He told me that.

He also told me this story about A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaj, Srila Prabhupad. When he went to America, he went once to the jail to see one of his disciples. When he saw him, that devotee cried and said, "I earned some money, and I had given all that money to you to make a temple in Vrindavan, Krishna Balaram temple. But what happened? Why am I in this kind of position? Why am I in jail?" But Prabhupad said, "This is your previous karma. But you have given a donation for the temple, so do not worry, there is a place reserved for you in Goloka Vrindavan."

That is called service result, service mood...

If you see some offence, that offence will attack you; if you see fault in somebody, that fault will attack you. We must see the good in others.
