My Goal and Hope

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Speaking on the phone to devotees in Singapore
24 September 2011


I am thinking it is necessary to find a pujari for Singapore, but in Singapore everybody is busy with work, so perhaps I can send a pujari from here... Everything is going on well by the mercy of Gurudev and it is necessary to continue chanting, programmes, and everything else, it will be good.

I have so much energy, and I want to give my energy to Singapore because it was one of Gurudev's desires to have a temple in Singapore. Gurudev wanted it, and I must fulfil his desire. I did not come to the temple to get Krishna or to get Radharani. I only came to the temple to make my Guru happy. That is my goal—to make my Gurudev happy. Gurudev wanted a temple in Singapore, that is why I give so much pressure to everybody and urge you to be one temple, united, together. Before there used to be two separate groups, but now everybody is together in Singapore, and you cannot realise how happy Gurudev is about it. It is also my happiness.

This is actually our goal. We are together, we are the mission of Gurudev, we are servants of Gurudev, we are followers of Srila Sridhar Maharaj. That is our conception. We may be few, we may not have so much quantity, but we have quality—that is what is important. We may be few, but Krishna says that one person can rescue the whole universe. So, I have some hope for you...

Many have a good heart, but everybody has some little fault—as Gurudev said, we are not like Tulasi leaves: everybody has some fault, but we must use everybody for the service to the Lord. Everybody has some fault, but we will not look for others' faults—we will take their good things and reject their bad things. If somebody does something wrong, we will forget their mistakes, we will take their good things. We will accept whatever good quality others have. Everybody has some little fault, but if we see something or catch somebody doing something and start talking to each other about it, gossiping, this is not our line. Do you understand it?

Come to India soon. I think I will be going for the Vrindavan parikrama, so if somebody can come, you are welcome, I will be there. Now, the Govardhan temple is being painted properly, and half of the puspa-samadhi of Gurudev is already finished—they are now going to make the roof within a few days...
