Parikrama Will Not Be Stopped

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj

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.

Terminal Foolishness
'People do not understand that if your get some honour, if you get some donation, or some respect, who is it for? It is for the Guru and his mission. If you do not think like this, then pratistha will attack you even more.'

 

Jaya 'guru-maharaja'
'The extraordinary beauty of your divine form shines with the exalted joy of benevolence, the brightness of divine sweetness.'
জয় ‘গুরু-মহারাজ’

If you stay alone, you can cook in your room, offer to the Lord, to your Guru, and take
that prasadam—you will be happy, and your devotion will be all right.
