Vishnupriya Devi's Sacrifice

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

We must remember in our life the sacrifice that Vishnupriya Devi made. This life is not for enjoyment, this life is for service. We should learn from the sacrifice of Vishnupriya Devi: a thirteen-year-old girl, she left everything, but we cannot leave coffee, tea, we cannot leave simple things. Today is the appearance day of Vishnupriya Devi, the daughter of Sanatan Mishra...

If you have no service, you can go to sleep, it is OK, but gramya-katha na baliba, gramya-varta na suniba—do not gossip, do not talk so much. Every day Vishnupriya Devi chanted and kept aside one grain of rice, at the end of the day she gathered the rice she had got in this way, cooked and offered it, and then took that.

I remember once at the time of the parikrama, some Math came to Yogapith and sang there, "Vishnupriya prana-dhana Nadia bihari." A sannyasi from Chaitanya Math was there and, hearing their singing, he told them to get out. I was very happy to hear that.

Srila Sridhar Maharaj changed so many things. For example, "Hari haraya nama yadavaya namaha"—Srila Narottam Das Thakur originally wrote "Sri advaita sita bhagavad gita," but Srila Sridhar Maharaj changed it to "Sri advaita chandra, gaura bhakta vrnda" to avoid any sahajiya. We must understand the style of our Math.

Blessed and Blissful Service Life
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj is telling the devotees what their life should be like after initiation, what they should do and should not do: 'Follow these things and you will get the result and go forward quickly.'

If you think it is your family, it is a problem; but if you think that it is Krishna's family,
then whatever they do, it will be for Krishna.
