His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Sri Nabadwip Dham, speaking online to Venezuela

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.

Terminal Foolishness
'People do not understand that if your get some honour, if you get some donation, or some respect, who is it for? It is for the Guru and his mission. If you do not think like this, then pratistha will attack you even more.'

 

Jaya 'guru-maharaja'
'The play of your divine Pastimes at Hidden Govardhan Hill in Sri Gauranga's abode are manifest eternally.'
জয় ‘গুরু-মহারাজ’

You have to think that Krishna exists within every jiva soul, and you have to
give respect to everybody, to every jiva soul just as when driving a car you
try to avoid running over some street animals.
