Make Krishna Your Friend

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj,
14 December 2010

 

It is written in the song glorifying Prabhupad Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, "উঠরে উঠরে ভাই আর ত সময় নাই, uthare uthare bhai ara ta samaya nai: wake up, you have no time in your hand." Any time we can leave; any time we can die. What will give us a solution?

If you want to cross a river, you have to pay the fee, but if you do not deposit anything, if you have no coin, how will you cross it? Devotional service—that is your coin. It is necessary to deposit something to your bank.

Every day Chitragupta [bookkeeper appointed by Yamaraj] is keeping your records. You are keeping your account, but that is not the actual account. Chitragupta keeps your records. Then, one day when you are called, you can get permission to cross the river if you have got the visa. If you do not have the visa, you have to come again and take the visa from the visa officer. You must apply for the visa, otherwise how will you get it? It is necessary to have desire to get it.

Krishna Himself said, "If you have desire, one day mercy will come." If you make one step to Krishna, Krishna will make ten steps to you. He is always ready to come to you, He always wants to serve you. Gurudev also said, "If you serve devotees, Krishna will come to serve to you." That is sure.

We have got a devotional seed from our bona fide Guru, and we must protect it now. নিজি নিজের বন্ধু, নিজি নিজের শত্রু, niji nijer bandhu, niji nijer satru ["you are your own friend, you are your own enemy"]: in this world no one is your enemy, no one is your friend. Only Krishna is your friend—if you make Him your friend. That is necessary.

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay.
Jay Om Vishnupad Jagad Guru Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj ki jay.

Rupa-Sikha: Pure Devotion
'Pure devotion means you have no desire for anything without Krishna, and no other desires about Krishna also—you only always want devotion to Krishna. Why, when you practise Krishna consciousness, do you not get energy, do you not feel happiness?'

 

Gurudev! krpa-bindu diya
'When will this soul attain such mercy and become fulfilled? I am devoid of ability and intelligence, and greatly distressed. Please accept me.'
গুরুদেব! কৃপাবিন্দু দিয়া

We do not really sing songs; we do kirtan. Singing a song and kirtan are different.

HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE | HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE
