Come to Your Home

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj,

It is my strong feeling that it is the mercy of Gurudev, the desire and the well-wishes of the devotees all over the world and all over India that this year's Gaura Purnima will be peaceful, and Gurudev has fulfilled the devotees' desire. Without you joining how can a festival be successful? You have joined, so the festival has become glorious.

Mahaprabhu told the devotees who were going back after Ratha Yatra,

প্রত্যব্দ আসিবে সবে গুণ্ডিচা দেখিবারে

pratyabda asibe sabe gundicha dekhibare

Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya-lila, 1.48

"Come every year to see the Gundicha."

So I hope that every year you will come to see Guru Maharaj's samadhi, Gurudev's samadhi, visit the holy places, take the association of the devotees. I pray to you all that you come every year. You may think, "How will the money come?" But if you have a strong desire, Mahaprabhu will send you the money to come here.

We are one family—the family of Gurudev. In my previous family, all my relatives lived together with their sons, daughters, everyone, in one house. I heard they still live like this, even though my brother is 60, my cousin is 55, but still they are together; for the last 300 years they have been gathering to celebrate Durga Puja every year, and to this day all the family comes to celebrate it.

We are like this too. We must protect our mission. Somebody may be doing something wrong, but Gurudev would always say to me, "When one door closes, another door opens." So, that is not a problem, we must continue. We must not see bad things. If somebody is doing something bad, we will take good from them and reject their bad side. Gurudev gave one advice to me, "If you always think of someone's bad quality, that bad quality will come to you."

So, I am very happy with you all. I am telling you again: help Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math everywhere, preach properly, maintain your spiritual life properly as Gurudev advised, and I will be even happier with you.

You are thinking, "This boat is going fast, this boat looks good," but chastity is necessary. You have a good husband, but you are thinking, "Another man is better than my husband," and you immediately go there. It is not a good idea. Do you understand? It is not a good idea. Remember that. You have to be chaste, have to be clear. Take Gurudev's boat, and one day that boat will take you to Vrindavan. You must believe that.

We must pray to our Guru, our Guru-varga, pray to our Gurudev, "So many people are going to Goloka Vrindavan, there is so much place there. If you can keep me there as a blade of grass, that would be good."

Mahaprabhu's Humility, Tolerance, and Honour to Others
'For our benefit, Krishna taught Arjuna many things in Srimad Bhagavad-gita, but then the Lord Himself comes as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and shows Himself how to practise that. This is the main attraction for us.'

 

Sri-rupa-manjari-pada
'The lotus feet of Sri Rupa Manjari are the mine of all rasas, they are the fulfilment of life, they are the dharma (prescribed religion) of the Vedas. Her lotus feet are my vows, my penance, my mantra, my japa. They are the ultimate purpose of life.'

As much as you are kind and loving towards yourself, be kind and loving towards others.
