Malini Devi and Vishvarup

Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj,
Speaking to devotees in London

Malini... The name Srivas Pandit's wife is Malini Devi. You know, one time Malini chastised Srivas Pandit.

Once, Vishvarup Prabhu, Nimai's elder brother, came to their house. He was a young boy at that time, about thirteen-fourteen years old. He came to ask Srivas Pandit for help. He asked him, "Prabhu, I want some book, I have come to ask if you can give it to me." At that time, there were many Muslim people in that area, and they burnt books and scriptures. Srivas Pandit answered, "You know there is so much problem here because of the Muslim people, we have already sent the book you are asking for to Tripura (Agartala, a Hindu area)."

At that time, Malini came to Vishvarup and gave him much affection. Looking at Vishvarup, Srivas Pandit said to Malini (his wife), "Oh, Vishvarup has come, but I cannot help him. I wish I could help him..." Suddenly, Malini said, "How can you help him?? You are always busy with kirtan and always only go to Advaita Prabhu's class—you cannot even take care of your family, how can you help anybody else?! You are not a family man!" In front of Vishvarup, she chastised Srivas Pandit in this way, and Vishvarup got shy to hear it. Srivas Pandit said, "Vishvarup, have you seen it? What did I say to her and what is she saying to me?! Now you know what marriage life is like! It is a big problem! Do not ever get married!"

At that time Vishvarup was actually going to get married—his parents, Sachi Mata and Jagannath Misra had already seen a girl for him, etc. But Vishvarup always, every day remembered what Srivas Pandit had told, and after a few days he suddenly ran away from his house and took sannyas. Such mood came to him. I read about this in some good book... So, now seeing Malini here (in London) I remembered their talk about life.

'Bhajahu Re Mana'
'This song was written by Govinda Das. There were two brothers who used to always fight: one brother, Govinda, worshipped Mother Kali, and the other brother worshipped Lord Krishna...'

 

Parama karuna
'O brother! Look! There are no benefactors in the three worlds as merciful as Them.'
পরম করুণ

'The mind is blind and naughty. It does not know what is good, and it always takes me
in the bad way.' But you have some intelligence, and you have a direct instruction
from your Guru, that is sufficient for your spiritual life.
