Of Plants and Play

By His Divine Grace
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Sri Nrisingha-chaturdasi day,
24 May 2013, Sri Nabadwip Dham

 

[At the beginning, addressing one of the devotees present at the veranda:]

Your service is to take care of Govinda Kunda—to guard against those who take flowers, who steal plants, and so on. You like staying at Govinda Kunda, then always give some security there. OK? You will do this service.

You can see such a beautiful bay tree in Bamunpara, there is also a big kul (jujube) tree, but here I planted so many plants yesterday and today some naughty boys take the plants and throw them out... It is necessary to guard.

If you always want to play, you can play but with service—that place should be with service connection, then it will be sadhana-bhakti (devotional practice), otherwise it will karma.

I could plant so many nice trees here, but it takes time and I do not get time. Yesterday, I saw a tree that gives mango all the time, it gives mango even in winter season also, but where will I put it? This area gets flooded almost every day, it is very difficult.

Saranagati is necessary, otherwise we cannot proceed in our spiritual life—we
cannot develop, cannot improve our spiritual life.
