His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

Bengali & English evening class, part 1

 

You are very fortunate to be attending Sri Gaura Purnima Festival and Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama this year. You are also very fortunate to have come a few days earlier.

We all feel very happy to see this festival and we feel inspired to see your great desire to take part in it. We do not feel any disturbance because you have come several days earlier, we are actually becoming happy because if you come earlier you can do more service here. Those who come before the festival can help arrange the festival. To arrange a festival and to enjoy the festival are different things, and it is more important to arrange the festival. So, it is actually more important for us that you come earlier and help arrange the festival. Seeing devotees coming earlier and taking up different services we are becoming very glad, we are becoming very happy.

Only a fortunate soul can make this parikrama, this does not happen by just a little sukriti. Actually, we must enter the service plane. We must try. If you can take part in the festival in this way, I will be very happy. I heard that some devotees had come yesterday and some devotees are also coming today are coming—if you can take part in service and do this Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama, you will earn some sukriti as a result.

We pray to you that you always try to come for Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama here at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. Somebody tries to make disturbances from many sides and places, but this parikrama was first started by Srila Sridhar Maharaj, and Srila Gurudev continued running it after him. After Srila Gurudev's disappearance, I continued this parikrama with my Guru-varga, with my godbrothers, Srila Ashram Maharaj, Srila Janardan Maharaj, Srila Avadhut Maharaj, and other sannyasis. Many sannyasis from abroad are coming this year also to join the parikrama at Guara Purnima. Try to come for the parikrama.

We are now making a pandal at Sri Govinda Kunda and during the festival we will be giving lectures there...

Where Your Desire
Can Take You
Two lessons taught by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu: both King Prataparudra and Damodar Pandit had strong desire for Mahaprabhu's mercy and earnestness in service, but was their attainment the same?

 

Durlabha manava-janma
'What sort of world is this? It is like a play of shadows. While I affectionately take it as my own, my days pass by in vain.'
দুর্লভ মানব জন্ম

Lust, anger, greed, and so on—we have so many material things within, and they are pulling us, taking us each their own way.
