Question: There are some great days like Lalita Saptami and Radhastami, what should we pray for on such days?

What will you pray for? Actually, you will pray to Srimati Radharani, Srimati Lalita Devi like this:

"I am an unqualified person, a conditioned soul, I have no quality, no qualification. Please engage me at Your lotus feet as a servitor. I cannot do proper service, I have no quality to do proper service, but You can engage me just as some simple servitor, as a sweeper or a cleaner. Please accept me as a particle of Your foot dust—just some foot dust at Your feet. I cannot actually touch Your feet, I have no quality for that, but when You walk some foot dust drops at some places—if only I can get that foot dust and keep it on my head! This is all I am asking You for."

You can also read that sloka of Srila Uddhav Maharaj from Srimad Bhagavatam (10.47.63). What did he ask Krishna? Krishna said to Srila Uddhav Maharaj, "Even Narad, Brahma, Siva are dear to Me, even I Myself am also not dear to Me, but you, O Uddhav, are so dear to me." And you can see what that Uddhav Maharaj says...

vande nanda-vraja-strinam
pada-renum abhiksnasah
yasam hari-kathodgitam
punati bhuvana-trayam

"I repeatedly offer my respects to the dust from the feet of the women of Nanda Maharaj's cowherd village. When these gopis loudly chant the glories of Sri Krishna, the vibration purifies the three worlds."

(Srimad Bhagavatam 10.47.63)

No Free Mixing
'We will not go to so many places or allow other temples in, because we do not mix with those who do not like my Guru, who criticise my Guru and think they are more than my Guru.'

 

Ki jani ki bale
'I do not know by what force I have taken shelter within Your abode. Surely it is by Your mercy alone, for You are ever seeking the purification and deliverance of the fallen souls.'
কি জানি কি বলে

If we remember Gurudev's words, and practise properly, then we can get
a small room in Gurudev's place and continue our service.
