Partake in Service Joy

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Sri Jagannath Mishra Ananda-mahotsav
Evening, 24 March 2016

 

Today by the mercy of Gurupad, we have one more time finished the parikrama, Gaura Purnima maha-mahotsav, and Jagannath Mishra's anada maha-mahotsav. The festivals went properly, successful, and without any problem with the help of all the devotees and also by the mercy of Gurudev, Guru Maharaj. Actually we do not do anything—everything belongs to the Lord and Gurudev and they do everything. This is how by the blessing of our Gurupadpadma we have completed these festivals.

Also, Gurudev's disappearance festival is very soon, on the dvadasi day, 18 April (Monday), and we are inviting everybody to take part in it. Many Vaishnavs will come here on this day. Festivals do not happen every day, so please try to come...

Everybody should help this festival. A festival means we come to serve. If somebody helps and does service, they get even more pleasure. Those who cook prasad, distribute prasad, and those who just sit and take prasad, but do not cook or distribute it—this is not the same, it is two different things. Some come for the festival and only do the parikrama and take prasadam, but when somebody does parikrama, listens to Hari-katha and also does some service, they get a great benefit, a great pleasure and happiness.

When somebody hears Hari-katha and gets pleasure in doing service of the Lord, there is no one as fortunate as them. Service brings pleasure, joy.

Two Oceans of Pastimes
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj is speaking about the glories and pastimes of Srila Raghunath Das Goswami and Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami on their disappearance day.

 

Ki-rupe paiba seva
'I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs!'
কিরূপে পাইব সেবা

What order Gurudev gives, we have to follow that.
