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.

Keep Your Promise, Do Your Duty
'You promised all that, but if you do not do it—as you sow so you reap!—you will get your result. Sometimes you will become a demon, sometimes you will become a demigod, another time you will become Ganesh, Kartik, or Mother Kali—but all these lives are temporary. We must use our life for the service to the Lord.'

 

Durlabha manava-janma
'Dogs and jackals will happily have a festival with my body. This is the fate of my body, its effects, material wealth, and all of my companions.'
দুর্লভ মানব জন্ম

Gurudev has given us so much service, but we do not do it. We have no desire to serve because we are attacked by the disease of insincerity.
