Near and Dear

Question: When we are so far from you, how can we get your association?

To say or think "so far" is not correct. You offer everything to your Guru, you think about your Guru, then how can it be 'far'? If you think your Guru is far, then how far is Krishna? Venezuela and India are not so far from each other compared to Goloka Vrindavan, where Krishna lives.

যে দিন গৃহে ভজন দেখি ।
গৃহেতে গোলোক ভায় ॥

ye dina grhe bhajana dekhi
grhete goloka bhaya

On the days when I see devotional service taking place in my home, I feel that Goloka has manifested there.

'Suddha-bhakata-charana-renu' by Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur

It means that when you worship your Guru, worship Krishna, Krishna is always in your house. Every day you offer to Gurudev, you serve Gurudev, and Gurudev is always in your house. It is easy to serve—anywhere you stay, just follow Gurudev's instruction, and you will easily get mercy from Gurudev.

Sincere Joy
'We are sad when others are happy and we always tells lies, but actually if somebody is preaching Krishna consciousness, it is good for us!'

 

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'Jaya Dharma's renowned servant was Sri Purusottam Tirtha. After Sri Purusottam Tirtha came the learned Brahmanya Tirtha. Brahmanya Tirtha's servant was Vyasa Tirtha. Vyas Tirtha's servant was Laksmipati. After Laksmipati came Madhavendra Puri.'
কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

In this Age, marriage, wedding, etc. means people do it for their own benefit—they gratify their their own senses, and get their own happiness.
