Our Only Duty

Sripad B.K. Tyagi Maharaj: There is one Bengali man who would like to meet you. He regularly comes to our Green Street temple.

It is very nice to meet you. Actually, we are fortunate souls because we have got a human body, and now our duty is to serve the Lord, to serve Guru, Vaishnav, Bhagavan.

Actually, Maya always takes our time and engages us in her service, so we must not lose time—any time we can die, any time we can leave this body—we must engage ourselves in service to the Lord.

We have got parents, a wife, a husband, children—we have got some happiness for Krishna, but having got all this we forgot Krishna. You must understand that Krishna can also take your happiness away and give you sadness instead. Then, we must understand what we got this body for, what our duty is. That is the main thing.

Sripad Tyagi Maharaj is there, and you got some good association from him. Through his association you will get reality, you will know what the main and the real way is. You can take his association and he will tell you every day—I only meet with you all for a short time, and within this short time it is not possible to tell everything.

It is necessary to clean yourself. In this world, you have no enemy, you have no friend—only you yourself are your own enemy. If you want to make other people happy, you are only cheating yourself. You must understand that your duty is to please Guru, Vaishnav, Bhagavan, do not cheat yourself: "আনের মন রাখিতে গিয়া আপনাকে দিবে ফাঁকি, anera mana rakhite giya apanake dibe phanki, if you go to satisfy the minds of others, you will only cheat yourself." [Pv, 8.4] That is why, some chastity is necessary. If you can run like this in this life, you will get your real home, you will go back to God, back to home.

Krishna Himself came in this world as Gauranga Mahaprabhu to take us home... This is not our real home. We must go to our real home—back to home, back to God. We must understand where our real home is: we are staying in a rented house now and we are only a security guard here. We must go to the place of our service.

We should always engage ourselves in service. Sometimes, when you do service, some seva aparadh can come, but do not leave your service. Through chanting the Holy Name, Nama aparadh can come, but when you chant more and more, Nama aparadh will be removed. In the same way, when you serve more and more, your seva aparadh will be removed.

Continue your service, continue practising Krishna consciousness in this way. Also, you need some connection with the Lord, and for that it is necessary to take initiation from a bona fide Guru. A Guru is the one who can rescue you from the illusory environment, from the samsar. You must take initiation from such a Guru. In this Age of Kali it is very difficult to get a bona fide Guru, and Krishna knows that, that is why Krishna Himself comes as a Guru in this Kali-yuga. You must try to understand it...

Jay Srila Gurudev. Dandavats.
Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj ki jay!
All the London devotees ki jay!

Always chant the Holy Name! The Holy Name can do everything for you! OK?

Jay Gurudev.

Wake up!
'In this age of Kali, Krishna has appeared in this world in the form of the Name and He comes to distribute His name door to door, but only the fortunates souls can receive that Holy Name.'

 

Gaya Gora madhur svare
'Bound in Maya's net, you work in vain. Now, while you are still conscious, chant 'Radha-Madhava'.'
গায় গোরা মধুর স্বরে

We have got much time for the service to the Lord, but maya is taking her share.
