Parikrama Will Not Be Stopped

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
22 February 2018, Kolkata


By the mercy of Gurudev, by the will of Gurudev and Guru Maharaj, you all have come from various corners of the world to join Sri Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama. I am thinking that one way or another we will do the Nabadwip Dham parikrama. Even if there are fewer people, we will still start the parikrama. We will not stop it.

There were many problems in past years also, but we have never stopped the parikrama—anyhow we are running it every year. One time, when Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj was sick, Gurudev did stop the parikrama that one year. I heard about it from Gurudev's mouth, at that time I had not come here yet, so I did not know about it. Gurudev was also afraid when he was in Kolkata and very sick. He asked me, "What do you want to do? Will you continue the parikrama or will you stop it? One time I had to stop it because my Guru Maharaj was sick." I said to Gurudev at that time, "Gurudev, by your mercy, if you order me, I do not want to stop the parikrama." Then Gurudev replied, "Yes, if you can run it, I am very happy," and the parikama happened very nicely that year.

Just like this year, so many disturbances came that year, but the parikrama happened. This year also, one way or another we will do our parikrama—we will go forward, we will not step back. Many kinds of problems will come, but we will face them.

So, I started the preparations yesterday and I am going to Nabadwip tomorrow to make further arrangements. If devotees cannot go to our Nabadwip temple, I have chosen a place in Mayapur and Nrisingha Palli which is almost ready now. I am 100% sure that we will go, but if not possible to go to Nabadwip at this time, then the second option will be Mayapur and Nrisingha Palli. We will stay there. We will arrange a bus and do the whole parikrama in this way. There is no problem, devotees will manage it.

Power of the Holy Name: Love Is the Weapon
'You promised that in this age You would give love and affection to the conditioned souls. In this age of Kali, there are no weapons. Mridanga, kartal, love, and affection are the weapons—not shouting, beating, or killing.'


'Make the teachings from Sri Guru's lotus mouth one with your heart, and do not desire anything else within your heart. Attachment to Sri Guru's feet is the best path. By his mercy all desires are fulfilled.'

We are in the battlefield, and if some opposition group or enemy is coming towards you, you cannot go back.
