Sri Vyasa Puja Day:
Appreciating Mercy

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Speaking online to the devotees in Italy
6 October 2013, Sri Nabadwip Dham

 

So many devotees are there, very nice. I am very happy to see all the devotees. Here too so many people have come, and you requested me to give some lecture, and I could not refuse. You know, even if I am tired, if I see the devotees my energy always increases and I do not feel any tiredness any more.

Actually, I can tell you that this year they made a big festival in Nabadwip, but I accepted this festival because I know Gurudev will be very happy with that, otherwise I do not want my birthday, I do not want to make any celebration on this day, I am getting shy. But I do not want to make Gurudev unhappy, that is why—to make Gurudev happy—I have accepted all the devotees' request.

I was in Siliguri a few days ago (and before that, in Bihar and Dinhata), and when I was asked the devotees had already arranged everything, so I could not tell them no and waste all that money... Gurudev said, "If you love me, love my dog." If you can consider me Gurudev's dog, that is sufficient for me, I do not want more than that.

Gurudev always gives me energy. I am actually a very unqualified person, I have no qualification, but Gurudev made me like this, and slowly, slowly I can understand what Gurudev wants me to do. I actually do not want to do bhajan, but Gurudev always forcefully keeps me at his lotus feet. That is my hope. I know where I was, but Gurudev brought me from there and gave so much mercy to me. That is sufficient for me, I do not want more than that.

Do you have any questions?

Devotees: Please give us your mercy...

You have already got it from Gurudev.

Actually, Krishna says in Srimad Bhagavad-gita (9.29), "In this world, nobody is My enemy and nobody is My friend," but if somebody is a sincere seeker, has full faith, and serves to their Guru, then Krishna becomes their friend—not only friend, Krishna becomes their servant! "Tava nija-jan kona mahajane pathaiya dile tumi (তব নিজ-জন কোন মহাজনে পাঠাইয়া দিলে তুমি)": we have lost our address and Krishna sent His own man (nija jan)—Krishna sent Gurudev—to take us to our address. So, we already understand what is our real home, you do not have to worry about that. Always be successful in your spiritual life, always proceed in your spiritual life and do not worry about it. I am always with you, and you are always with me. Do not worry about that.

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay!

Asraya Vigraha Sri Baladev
'Without the shelter of Nityananda Prabhu, without the shelter of Baladev Prabhu, we cannot think about Krishna. We must understand how to serve, how to give nourishment to Baladev.'

 

Thakura vaisnava-gana
'I have never accepted the proper conception. My mind has been immersed in illusion, and I have never aspired for your feet. Narottam Das says, 'Seeing and hearing about my situation, I am stricken with fear. Please rescue me and keep me by your side.''
