Engage Yourself—and Others

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

You can preach, practise sravanam, kirtanam, engage in the preaching movement and increase our society there, I hope for that, and I also hope that you will preach in the proper way, following the proper channel. Read Guru Maharaj's books, Gurudev's books—through that you will get association of Gurudev. From time to time you can call me by skype, I can give lectures, you can listen to that. You can do some sankirtan—make some preaching pamphlets, leaflets and can distribute them. You can make a small centre there and preach. You know that in 1941 Srila Sridhar Maharaj made just a small bamboo house, but now the sun never sets on Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math! Make preaching movement there. We want quality, not quantity. Pure things are necessary. If you want to buy some subji (vegetables) at a low price, the subji may be rotten—good things have good price.

Are there any questions from you?

—We are very satisfied!

I also feel happy to see you all. As I said before, I can see Gurudev, Guru Maharaj, when I see you all, and you are giving me a chance to serve you all—that is my happiness.

You only need to preach. You cannot only taste something yourself, you must allow others to taste it too. Do you understand what I mean? Do you not eat alone, allow others to eat too—you are chanting and you must allow others to chant too. Engage others in service. For example, a fruit tree cannot serve by itself, but if you take some fruit from the fruit tree and offer it to your Guru, then you will be engaging the fruit tree in service. Like this.

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay!

The Wealth of Heart
'We must always keep the advice that our Guru gives us in our heart. It is necessary to do it otherwise we cannot proceed... Some obstacles can come—not only can come, they will definitely come—but we must proceed even with obstacles.'

 

Ke yabi ke yabi
'The Lord's Names are the ferryboat, Sri Guru is the captain, and the outstretched arms in the sankirtan are the oars.'
কে যাবি কে যাবি

Whichever way Krishna keeps you, you must be happy with that.
