His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Speaking online to devotees in London
31 July 2011, part 4

 

I am telling all these things to you at this moment, but actually I want to say only one thing. Gurudev told me, "If you can become a dhuli-khana, one particle of foot-dust of the devotees of Chaitanya Saraswat Math, that is sufficient—more than that is not necessary." It is not necessary to become an acharya, it is not necessary to become a guru, it is not necessary to be a big pujari. If you can become foot dust of Chaitanya Saraswat Math, that is sufficient for you.

For that, it is necessary for us to have faith, strongest faith (visvas) in our Guru. After faith there comes "Sravanam, kirtanam, smaranam, vandanam, dasyam, sakhyam, atma-nivedanam (hearing, chanting, remembering, offering obeisance, engaging in service as a servitor, as a friend, and self-submission)". We must surrender fully,

ষড়ঙ্গ শরণাগতি হইবে যাঁহার ।
তাঁহার প্রার্থনা শুনে শ্রীনন্দকুমার ॥

sad-anga saranagati ha-ibe yahara
tahara prarthana sune sri-nanda-kumara

"Sri Krishna hears the prayers of those who surrender in the six-fold way."

(Saranagati, 1.5, by Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur)

If somebody has faith, if they feel, "I can do something! I want to do it for my Guru!" then they can do it. Those who want to do something for their Guru, they can do these things. That is the main thing. Gurudev told me, "Continue your service, continue your practising life, and one day you will get the result."

Saltamami
'If you lose your capital every day, you will eventually have a zero balance, and the next day it will be -1, then -2—then it will be lost for your life. You have got some sukriti, that is all right, but every day you must earn more through your service.'

 

Sujanarvuda-radhita-pada-yugam
'He is a wish-fulfilling tree for the surrendered servants. His benevolence and tolerance shame even a tree's. The demigods and sages worship his divine feet. Eternally I offer my obeisance to my master's feet.'
সুজনার্ব্বুদরাধিতপাদযুগং

We must realise everything, we must practise our own spiritual life properly, and pray to the feet of Guru, Vaishnavs sincerely, not pretending or showing off.
