I am very happy that you have come here from so far, from Russia and that you have done the parikrama with Srila Avadhut Maharaj, Sripad Bhakti Sevan Hrisikesh Maharaj, Prithu Prabhu. It must make Gurudev happy.

You stayed in Nabadwip Chaitanya Saraswat Math, I do not have any problem with that. I was actually happy to get news from you and to know what is going on inside there because otherwise I do not get much news about it. So, it is good for me all sides. Also, you have cleaned the temple, the Sevak Bhavan, there today and I am very happy with that, and Gurudev and Guru Maharaj are also very happy with that. You have done a big service because they had not cleaned the temple for many months. I am very happy with you.

Srila Avadhut Maharaj and other sannyasis always come to preach in your country and from time to time they come to India, and actually they come to you as spiritual doctors to rescue you from the illusory environment, from a very low position. They all want your good, that is why they go door to door telling everybody, "Come to Nabadwip! Come to the temple!" They take you here, show many places, and you visit all these places chanting the Holy Name. This is not a simple matter.

Before we were all in the illusory environment—we are conditioned and very fallen soul, we are covered by the illusory environment, but the sadhus, sannyasis come to us and take us from the lowest position to the highest position in Sri Vaikuntha. You may think that you are coming from a very low position, that you are coming from Russia, it is another caste, another family, culture, background, etc. but I think you are actually coming from a very high position and you are not ordinary souls because you have got a good connection with a bona fide Guru, with Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, and you are chanting the Holy Name. The scriptures say that if you worship Deities birth and birth, for many births, then in next life you can chant the Holy Name. In this world there are millions of millions of people, there are so many big wealthy people, so many people who have a very big position in the country, but none of them are as fortunate as you are because they cannot chant the Holy Name, they cannot do the parikrama of the holy dham in sadhu-sanga, good aasociation, but you have done it by the mercy of Gurudev, by the mercy of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

Clearing the Obstacles
'Depend upon Me. How you will come out of that illusory environment is not your business, it is not for you to think about. If you follow what I am telling you, then when the time comes Krishna will show you how to come.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord Damodara, I first of all offer my obeisances to the brilliantly effulgent rope which binds Your belly. I then offer my obeisances to Your belly, which is the abode of the entire universe. I humbly bow down to Your most beloved Srimati Radharani, and I offer all obeisances to You, the Supreme Lord, who displays unlimited pastimes.'
শ্রীশ্রীদামোদরাষ্টকম্

If you cannot bow down to the lotus feet of Krishna, bow down to the devotees
of Krishna, then what is the use of this head?
